OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A sport utility vehicle with no one inside has been pulled from a lake near the Omaha airport.

An Omaha officer reported seeing tire tracks leading into Carter Lake around 4:35 a.m. Tuesday. An Omaha Fire Department boat equipped with sonar found the SUV in nearly 10 feet (3-plus meters) of water.

Divers later hooked the SUV up to tow straps and a cable so a tow truck could pull it out.

Investigators are looking into whether the SUV had been stolen and then dumped in the lake near Eppley Airfield.
