  1. I am trying to locate my 2010 Kia Forte that was abandonded in Pulaski County Arkansas. Can you please help me with this matter due to the fact that my family is now without transportation and unable to obtain jobs, etc….

  2. My husband bought a van a few months back. We went to register the van with DMV, but they need the prior owners name and address. I’ve been on a few sites but they all charge and I don’t want to just give money if I don’t get the info I need. Can’t DMV help locate the prior owner? Fresno, Ca

    1. That sounds like a very suspicious operation if you cannot get a hold of a business owner that has possession of your Florida car. You should think about filing a police report and explaining your situation. Perhaps the Florida police department can assist you with the recovery of your car or perhaps look into the situation more for you

  3. I would like to find the true owner of a travel trailer left on my property in Florida.
    The tag number is all I have.
    Will running your search provide me with the owners Name and any info?

    1. Joseph, our license plate owner resources only work on motorized vehicles, unfortunately we do not have records on a travel trailer. You may want to reach out to the DMV directly to inquire about this trailer
