Enlarge PhotoThe mechanical shark seen in the terrifying 1975 blockbuster 'Jaws' has been finally been found after a 20 year search.

Four shark models were used during the making of the horror movie, with three of them destroyed after filming.

However, the fourth model was used at Universal Studios Theme Park for many years, until it was dumped in an unknown location in 1990.

Reporter Cory Turner has managed to track down the shark at a Los Angeles junkyard.
One of the film's special effects crew members, Roy Arbogast, said, "It's the real one. It's just kinda nice to see it again after 25 or 30 years. It's amazing that it's still here."

The mechanical sharks were all named Bruce during the film's production – said to be after Spielberg’s lawyer Bruce Ramer.
