Abandoned car found in ditch

UPDATE

The abandoned Mazda 626, which was spotted on Gayndah Mundubbera Road on the weekend, has been removed after police were made aware of the incident.

A representative for Queensland Police confirmed that they had received a report regarding the red sedan on Saturday but could not clarify the current state or location of the car.

A North Burnett Council spokeswoman said that Council has as of today received no report of any recent vehicles coming into their possession.

Police have said they will not investigate further as abandoned vehicles are considered a Council matter.

 

EARLIER:

QUEENSLAND Police say they were unaware of a sedan found abandoned on Gayndah Mundubbera Road earlier this morning.

The red Mazda 626 was found in a roadside ditch just after Wain's Hill Lookout, heading toward Gayndah.

The front and rear number plates have been taken off the car and the glove compartment appears to have been emptied; the car was found locked but with its front windows rolled down.

Two empty glass bottles of pre-mix alcohol were found on the passenger side seat and floor, with no other personal effects visible in the car.

A Queensland Police spokesman said they had not received any reports of a car of this type before the Times made its inquiry; police have since been made aware of the situation and are going to investigate further.

The spokesman said there is as of now no suspicion of any illegal activity.

More to come.
