German man forgets where he parked his car, finds it after 20 years
Berlin : In 1997, a man in the German city of Frankfurt filed a police complaint claiming that his car has been stolen.
Twenty years later, the authorities managed to trace down the vehicle only to find out that the man had himself forgot where he’d parked the car and had assumed it had been stolen.
The vehicle has been recovered from an old garage in an old industrial building that was being vacated for the demolition.
On finding the car during the demolition drive, the cops enquired for the owner of the car and found out it’s the same guy who had filed missing complaint 20 years back for the same vehicle.
According to German regional paper Augsberger Allgemein, the man, now 76-years-old, was driven by the police with his daughter to be reunited with the car.
Unfortunately, the car was no longer functional and had to be scrapped. “The car can no longer be driven and will be sent to the scrap heap,” Frankfurt authorities said.
