BMW found six months after driver lost it in parking garage

In June, a man borrowed a friend’s BMW in Scotland and drove south to Manchester to catch a Stone Roses concert at Etihad Stadium, reports the Manchester Evening News.

He parked the vehicle in one of the area’s parking garages and promptly forgot which one. After the concert, he searched and searched, and ultimately spent five days trying to find his friend’s wheels before giving up.

In August, the owner, who’d emailed local companies and government to see if it had been found, reported the vehicle lost or stolen. Now officers say they happened upon an abandoned car in one of the area lots just before midnight Friday and, after seeing it had been reported lost or stolen, tweeted that they’d found the car that had been lost since June.

“We can’t imagine what the ticket machine is going to say when they finally put the ticket in,” Manchester City Centre officers posted in a follow-up tweet.

The officers’ best guess? Around $6,150. The story reminds AOL Travel UK of an even wilder one: that of a German man who parked his car December 2010 and wasn’t able to locate it until September 2012.

Guarantee these problems are alcohol-related.

I was going to say drugs, but alcohol works too.
