We've all been there. You park the car and come back to the garage but have no idea what level it's on.

The difference between you and one German man, is that it usually only takes you a few minutes to find it - not two decades.

This week, an elderly German man was re-united with his car twenty years after he forgot where he parked it.

The man reported his car missing to Frankfurt police in 1997 and city authorities have just found it. The car was not stolen, but in fact parked in a garage in an old industrial building.

The only reason the car was discovered is because the building is due to be demolished. The police set out to find the owner of the vehicle as it was in the way.

When the 76-year-old owner was found, he was driven by police and reunited with the car, according to German regional paper Augsberger Allgemein.
