A cold case investigation into the mystery disappearance of a Porsche 27 years ago has finally been solved.
The 1979 Porsche 924 coupe went missing from a car park outside a cinema in the city of Medford, Oregon, in 1991.
Police say the classic car had not been seen for more than two decades when a dog walker stumbled across the overturned wreckage in remote woodland on 28 November.
Jackson Co. Sheriff’s Office investigated initial reports that human remains were found with the wreckage, however bones on the ground nearby were determined to belong to a deer.
“A man walking in a wooded area this week came across a vehicle reported stolen nearly 27 years ago,” the sheriff’s office said.
“He called dispatch to report finding an overturned vehicle down a steep embankment. The position of the vehicle at the base of a cliff made it nearly impossible to see from the road above.
“Heavy forest debris indicated the vehicle had been there for a significant period of time. The registration tags expired in 1991. Further investigation found the Porsche was reported stolen on January 20, 1991.”
The sheriff’s office say it is working to determine the best course of action to remove the vehicle.
