For the second time in five weeks, divers have found a stolen vehicle sitting at the bottom of a lake.

The Mercedes limousine was found in the popular Lake Pichlinger in five metres of water, according to a report in Kronen Zeitung.

It had been discovered during a routine dive by a pair of hobby divers.  There was no body found inside the vehicle.

It is suspected that the vehicle had been stolen from nearby Linz.  A similar case occurred with a stolen vehicle in the same lake in May.  

Police suspect there may be a link between the two cases, and reported that the investigation is ongoing.

In the previous case, passers-by had discovered tire tracks leading down into the lake.
