    Barbara, a good place to start would be by contacting the police and letting them contact the owner of the vehicle to inform them what has happened to their vehicle. That said, if resourcing our Kentucky vehicle records you will first need to go through the search form and read through the terms and conditions of our search and the relevant Kentucky privacy laws to find out if you can run your KY license plate lookup.

    I’m trying to locate the owner of a car that ended up in the water behind our condominium building in Bonita Springs, FL after Hurricane Ian. It has been removed from the water and is in our parking lot. We are assuming it might belong to an owner in a neighboring building. Thank you for your assistance.

    Thomas, the only way you can locate the registration on your vehicle without the Kentucky license plate number or vehicle identification number is to visit the Kentucky MVL in person and bring your driver’s license to verify your identity. Then you can request a duplicate vehicle registration for your vintage Pontiac
