Police are hunting for thieves who stole a classic American car from Welwyn Garden City - at any time in the last 20 years.

The daughter of a Welwyn Garden City man who died in August checked his garage in Sloansway on October 15, and saw that his cherished red Ford Mustang, registration VTM 648S, had gone.

The last confirmed sighting in the garage was in 1995, and police hope somebody will remember seeing it being driven away.

Detective constable Geoff Smith said: “The owner of the vehicle was hugely proud of the car and it has a large amount of sentimentality attached to it.

“Obviously the car is very distinctive and, despite the length of time in which it could have been stolen during, I believe anyone who witnessed the car being removed from the garage would remember seeing it.

“I would like to speak with anyone with information about this theft as soon as possible. Equally, I would like to hear from anyone who has seen the car or been offered it for sale.”

Anyone with information should contact DC Smith via Hertfordshire Constabulary’s non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference B1/15/3284.
