FOLSOM, Calif. -- There's a bright spot to the drought that's leaving Folsom Lake hovering around historic lows. The lower the level goes, the more is revealed along the lake's bottom. Family members of loved ones presumed drowned in the lake said every time the water drops, their hopes for closure rise.
"It's a fun place to be, it is," said Frank Wilcox. "It's a great recreational place, but for our family, it's a gravesite."
It's been roughly 50 years since Frank Wilcox's brother died in a New Years Day plane crash over Folsom Lake. Glen Emick was just 15-years-old. He was one of four people on the plane that officials said took a nosedive into the deepest waters.
"It's very difficult," he said. "Every New Year's Day. Every time you drive by the lake."
