I parked my car on Rupert Street in Leicester city centre on Saturday 17th October, and it was last saw at 7.55pm in a designated council parking space that was free as of saturday night at 6pm until 7.30am on Monday. I returned to the place in which I had parked it on Sunday 18th at 1.45pm to find that my beloved mini wasn't there anymore.

I contacted the police and its nearly been 2 weeks now and it still hasnt been found.

If anyone has any information on it's where about could you please get in contact with leicestershire police on 01162222222. Thank you.

The Registration is: K541 JFM

Here are a few pictures.

I'm at University at the moment, but I'll keep my eyes open when I'm home.

It was in a council parking bay on a street, and it hasn't been towed, as it was taxed, insured etc...

Just got to hope that it turns up :D

Can I ask what security you had? Dont mean to make you feel bad by going over it. But it would be useful to rest of us in protecting our mini's?

i bet ur gutted mate! i know i would be! its an all to common thing now though, as minis are gaining value, there are people out there wanting to cash in on this and are stealing minis to order! ringing them and selling them on to unsuspecting victims! hope you get the value of ur mini from the insurance, and find your mini!
