The Almuñécar fire service was called out on the 22nd of last month to where a car had left the road near an urbanización on Cerro Gordo, La Herradura.
The car’s fall had been stopped by a dense thicket of large bushes, leaving it almost obscured by branches. However, somebody out for a walk along that lane spotted the car, which was lying with its underside facing back up the slope, and contacted the police about the find.
When the police and fire service arrived it was to find nobody in the car nor anywhere in the immediate surrounding area, leaving the emergency services wondering who had abandoned the car like this without at least reporting an accident.
The police have enquired, once they entered its number plate into the vehicle-registry system, to find out if a robbery had been reported fitting the description of the vehicle or even, if the owner had been reported as missing. Both drew a negative search.
The municipal tow truck winched the stricken car back to the road surface and they took it to the municipal vehicle compound pending the owner reclaiming it as his whereabout continues to be unknown.
