MUNICH — A German man has been reunited with his car — two years after he first lost track of it in a parking lot.

Bavarian police said the man had been drinking one night in December 2010 and lost track of his vehicle, according to the Inquisitr.

When the man returned the next day to locate his vehicle, it was nowhere to be found. He eventually reported the missing vehicle to the Munich police.

The vehicle remained missing until last month, when a traffic warden noticed its expired inspection stickers, according to the Global Post. The car was in a parking lot 2.5 miles from where the man had originally searched, according to police.

"The weird thing is that it turned up so far away, although the owner was pretty sure of where he had left it," police spokesman Alexander Lorenz told Reuters.

Recovered with the car were tools worth more than $51,000. The car was returned to the man on the condition that he renew the inspection stickers before driving it again.
