POLICE have confirmed they are no longer searching for the man, or the body of the man, who stole a vehicle and drove it into floodwaters on the weekend.

The Toyota LandCruiser ute was stolen on Friday and discovered submerged in floodwaters off Fairy Bower Rd on Saturday morning.

No search is currently being untaken in the area, and a police media spokesperson said the water level was still quite high in the creek.

Police had previously been searching in the water and waiting for creek levels to drop after the ute was found.

It is not known whether the driver managed to escape or not.
