BMW Lost For Six Months Found Exactly Where Driver Left It

One unlucky guy lost his best friend's BMW after driving it to a concert. After six months, the police found the car right where he left it.

An unlucky British man borrowed his friend's BMW and ended up losing it for six months.

The Manchester Evening News reports that the man borrowed the car from his friend in Scotland to drive it down to Manchester for a music concert.

The man parked the BMW in a Manchester City Centre parking lot and went off to enjoy the show, but when he returned, he couldn't remember where he'd left it.

After searching multiple parking lots in vain, the man informed the police — and we assume, the misplaced car's owner — and in August 2016, it was reported lost or stolen.

Finally, after six months, Manchester police have stumbled across the parked car exactly where the driver left it.

"Officers have found a car in a multi-storey (sic) lost since June; driver visiting city parked it but couldn't remember where," the Greater Manchester Police tweeted.

"We can't imagine what the ticket machine is going to say when they finally put the ticket in."

The officers predict the bill will come out to somewhere around $6,157 after the car's extended stay in the parking lot.

It may sound ridiculous that somebody could lose a car in a parking lot for such a long time, but the National Car Parks site lists 35 parking lots in the Manchester City Centre area, some of which have multiple levels.

This also isn't the most outrageous example of a car being lost in a parking lot to date. 

Back in 2010, a German man lost his car in Munich for two years before finding it in a lot about two and a half miles away from where he thought he had parked it. 

We can only hope that the forgetful man's friend wasn't too angry with him — and that whopper of a parking ticket doesn't break their bank. We imagine he'll be a bit more careful about where he parks his car in the future.
