Man finds auto 20 years after forgetting where he parked it

In an "unbelievable" happening, a German driver had his auto returned to him after 20 years because he had "forgotten" the location where he had parked his vehicle back in 1997.

But while most drivers locate their cars after a frustrating few minutes, one German man has been searching for two decades.

A local resident had phoned the authorities to the report the vehicle missing which, after 20 years, was rotting in a garage was deemed unfit to drive.

Apparently, the man, who is now 76 years old, according to the German paper Augsberger Allgemein, simply forgot where he parked it and assumed it was taken.

And on Wednesday the old banger was finally found in the garage of a building earmarked for demolition, The Local reports.

The auto had only been discovered because it had been parked in a building which is being regenerated. However, it turns out the vehicle had not been stolen, and was left to rust in the garage for 20 years.

"The auto can no longer be driven and will be sent to the scrap heap", Frankfurt authorities said.

After rotting in the parking for 20 years, it was deemed unfit for driving.
