A car was stolen in Aberdeen sparking a police investigation.
The Vauxhall Astra estate was taken from Derbeth Road in Mastrick between Sunday evening and yesterday morning.
The car has since been recovered in the Mastrick area but no arrests have been made as a result.
A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said: “Officers are appealing for information following the theft of a Vauxhall Astra from the Derbeth Crescent area of Aberdeen between Sunday April 28 evening and the early hours of yesterday.
“Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting reference number 0417 of April 29.”
