Car lost in parking garage found after six months 

It's not unusual for drivers to forget where they parked their car, but a man in Manchester, U.K. had an unusually long ordeal.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the BMW he had borrowed from a friend to go to a concert has been found after six months.

Authorities corroborated his account, tweeting on December 30, "Officers have found a car in a multi-storey lost since June; driver visiting city parked it but couldn't remember where. Driver apparently spent 5 days searching car parks in the city before reporting as lost/stolen."
