If your car has gone missing, follow the simple steps below to track it down or, in the worst case, report it as stolen.

Step 1: Check where you left it

It sounds obvious, but if your car is missing our first advice is always to double-check where you parked it. So often a missing car, presumed stolen, is exactly where the owner left it – they simply forgot.

Many cars these days come with GPS trackers to locate them if they're lost or stolen. If this is the case for your car, please contact your dedicated tracking service before contacting us – if the car genuinely appears to have been stolen they'll usually contact us on your behalf.

Step 2: Contact the ELVIS vehicle recovery team

The second most common reason for a missing vehicle is that it's been removed by the ELVIS (End of Life Vehicle Impound Scheme) recovery team.

You can call ELVIS on 101, then extension 341093, or email ELVIS.
