The 40-year-old, known only as ‘Andreas O’, hung posters around the city and offered a 200 Euro reward to anyone who could reunite him with his car. But it wasn’t until a Munich paper launched an appeal on his behalf that the Golf was located.

“We get this sort of thing all the time,” said Munich police spokesman Christoph Reichenbach.
