For water displacement you need to put something in its place to shift that amount of mass.
1. It would register on seismographs something of that mangitude happening at one, wether as a harmonic event or a anomalous reading occuring for some time out of background readings.
4. Even if a Fissure had opened up you'd expect to see evidence of this on the lakebed. Plus seismographs would have also registered activity.

The problem with that is they knew it was a sinkhole as they tested the waters depth using Sonar, and within the hour almost, knew it was a sinkhole.
With the Lake in Chile theres still Sedimential Lakebed and no Fissure cracks or seismic evidence on record of any earthquake taking place in the area in question (you can register a small WW2 bomb going off in France from Hawaii.) So the theory is still open.
Although the sudden draining of a lake is rare, it is not unheard of. One explanation that scientists proposed was an earthquake in the region that measured 6.2 on the Richter scale. Earthquakes can open up fissures in the rock, giving water an escape route. Another explanation was more prosaic: melting. Blocks of ice dam many glacial lakes, and when the ice melts, the lake can drain away. Sometimes a lake can drain in a rapid deluge, known as a glacial lake outburst flood.

Judging from the video looks like a glacial lake in the andes if i had to take a guess i figure a fissure under the lake opened up and created a giant drain. Causes either an eartquake or there was ice clogging the fissure and it melted. If they send some real scientists there theyll probably figure it out.
But one elderly villager sitting outside her house had another kind of force in mind.
"I thought the Americans had got here," she said, laughing.

A large lake in Chile dissapeared overnight , leaving in its place a giant pit 30 meters deep , but placed in dry soil reported a head of the National Forestry Corporation (CONAF). CONAF requested help from geologists to find out what happened to the lake, located approx. 2000 kilometers southeast of Santiago. What they found is that this rather large lake had simply dissapeared and the quite large icebergs that were residing in the lake are now sitting in the dry bottom of what once was the lake. There were eyewitness reports of UFOs sucking up the water of the lake.

As for the UFO - how would a UFO take so much water? The water would have formed a cube more than 80 meters on a side (around 250 feet on a side), and would have weighed more than 600 metric tons. That would be kind of hard for a UFO to carry.
