Within an hour, another woman who lived just half a mile away responded, saying that she’d seen a car matching the description parked in her cul-de-sac that very morning. Since the car had seemed out of place – it was parked in a rarely-used parking spot and one of its windows was left rolled down – she had jotted down the license plate number.
As luck would have it, she’d written down the license plate number of the very same car that was posted an hour earlier on Nextdoor. She was shocked to find it matched that of the stolen vehicle posted on Nextdoor.
What normally takes days or weeks took mere hours thanks to social media: the owner and her car were reunited that afternoon.
