Can you report a car stolen if the person you loaned the vehicle to fails to return it?

it wouldn't be reported as a "stolen" vehicle unless they signed

an agreement stating when they would return it. At most, it would

be unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. Best thing to do would be

to send a certified, return receipt, restricted delivery letter to

the person stating they have so many days to return it or it will

be considered stolen. Also put in the letter that acceptance of the

letter constitutes their agreement. Yes you can report your car

stolen but only if you said return it by a certain time. If you

failed to give a time period, then you cannot report it as
