Police are working to find out whose car was found face down in a Rotorua ditch this morning.
A police spokeswoman said they were called to the Linton Park West reserve off Goldi St about 6.18am to reports of a car that had gone off the road into a ditch.
No one was in the vehicle and police are trying to establish whose car it is, she said.
A Rotorua Daily Post reporter at the scene said a tow truck was unable to get the car out and a lifter was on its way.
Police said they suspected the car was stolen.
