According to German regional paper Augsberger Allgemein, (wonderful paper we get it every week) the man, now 76-years-old, was driven by the police with his daughter to be reunited with the Auto. This helped the cops to track down that it is the same vehicle reported missing by the absent-minded owner, who is now 76 years old. You will either try to recollect everything that happened that day or report the incident to police.
Authorities in Frankfurt found the vehicle in a garage in a building which is set for demolition.
Local media reports the man is now 76 years old and was taken to his vehicle by police, along with his daughter.
At least the man, who authorities did not name, has a little closure now, even if he had a harder time getting around town for the last 20 years.
When the 76-year-old owner was found, he was driven by police and accompanied by his daughter to be reunited with the auto, according to local media.
Frankfurt authorities said: "The auto can no longer be driven and will be sent to the scrap heap".
The whole thing started in 1997, when, unable to find exactly where in Frankfurt he'd left his Volkswagen Passat, he assumed it had been stolen, notes the Daily Mail.
