Despite an extensive area search, officers were unable to locate the vehicle.

Officers responded to find a damaged Toyota sedan. Officers continued to search of the parking lot and soon found a teal 1995 Ford Mustang with damage matching that of the Toyota. The Mustang also matched the description of the possible drunk driver reported just minutes earlier.
