A man who reported his car as stolen 20 years ago in Germany has now been reunited with the vehicle, after it turned out he'd just forgotten where he'd parked it.

The car was found in Frankfurt inside a garage in an old industrial building, according to The Independent.

Authorities were researching who the owner of the car was as the building is due to be knocked down and it was causing an obstruction.

Local media reports the man is now 76 years old and was taken to his car by police, along with his daughter.

However, sadly the car is to be scrapped as it is no longer useable, although this probably isn't surprising after sitting in one spot for two decades.

This is not the first time a case like this has happened in Germany as another man was without his car for two years after forgetting where he left it following heavy drinking.

Police received reports of the missing car and it was found 2.5 miles away from where he thought it should have been.

The car was also worth a lot to the man as it had €40,000 (£35,700) in the boot and tools worth €50,000 (£44,600).
