W. Ky. man finds car 26 years after it was stolen

BENTON, Ky. (AP) -- A Chevy Bel Air has been returned to a western Kentucky man 26 years after it was stolen.

Marshall County resident Herbert Boren purchased the 1955 two-door hardtop vehicle in the early 1960s for $65, but it was later stolen from his driveway.

WPSD-TV reports the vehicle was returned this week after Boren's sons, Randy and Jason Boren, heard about a 1955 Bel Air for sale in Benton. Randy Boren said he was thinking of buying it, but when he saw the car, he recognized it and called his father.

They called police, who verified the VIN number matched the vehicle in the original police report.

Kentucky State Police and Benton police say they are investigating to determine who originally stole the car, which was still in good condition.
