Glad to report that the love of my life has been found .I got a phone call from the police yesterday to say that it has been parked outside someones house for several days. Apparently un-damaged and locked. The car is now in safe storage with a local garage awaiting new locks and keys. Looks like the insurance would have paid up in event of a total loss anyway,judging by their reaction to it being found. Just cant wait to get it back now,think a full valet is in order just to remove the smell of the low life junkie scumbag who took the car in the first place.
