Have you ever forgotten where you parked? It’s happened to the best of us but this is a pretty extreme case for a Syracuse teen who couldn’t remember what Toronto parking garage had his wheels.
Eric and Michele Strickland took to Craigslist to see if a sharp eyed good Samaritan could help them locate their son’s car.
19 year old Gavin went to the Metallica concert on Sunday night at the Rogers Centre, but he couldn’t remember where he parked. After searching parking garages for the entire night, he caved and called his parents to tell them what happened. Gavin traveled back to Syracuse on a Greyhound bus while the car sat somewhere in Toronto.
His parents offered a $100 reward to anyone who could locate the blue-green Nissan Versa sedan with Florida licence plates, a Canadian flag and a Bernie Sanders bumper sticker.
Gavin tried to give some landmarks to see if anyone could narrow it down: The garage was near a Starbucks, some construction, a strange spiral statue and a bank, possibly an RBC branch and was within an $8 cab ride to Rogers Centre… I know, not exactly a lot to go on right?
Well, luckily for Gavin, the car has been found! It was found at 66 Wellington St. W., near Jump restaurant, which has a statue of a spring outside.
This isn’t the first time Gavin lost his car at a concert either. Last winter, he lost his car at a concert in New York, but it was found shortly by police several blocks away.
I’m going to recommend that Gavin finds a different way to get to all future concerts.
