YOU are responsible for the debt that is secured by the "stolen" car. Be sure to make a police report on the 'stolen" car.
In my jurisdiction they are, that way if you wake up in the morning and find your car gone we know it was not stolen.
If you want to be charged with making a false report on top of losing your car. If it has been repossessed legally, you have no real claim on it and aren't supposed to find it. Pay what is owed on it and whoever has it must produce the car.
There are certain strict procedures that an automobile repossessor must follow when he is repossessing your car. The repossessor must notify the police that such vehicle is being repossessed, you did before or after the repossession has occurred. In either case, the police should know right away that the vehicle was repossessed. If this is not the case, then the vehicles like to have been stolen.
You can find information on repossessed car auctions on websites such as Absa (under repossessed cars), AutoBidMaster and RepoDirect. Depending on where you live there can also be local sources of information.
The tow/repossession company has to notify the police of the repossession so the car can't be reported stolen..

Report it stolen.
I have no idea how you find out on the internet. Here in NY, a repo man must, by law, immediately stop at a police dept. or sheriff's office and notify them of the repossession. The law enforcement agency then enters the repo. into the computer so it cannot be entered as stolen. I guess what I would recommend is that you contact the local police and tell them the story. Maybe stolen. Maybe repossessed. Let them figure it out. That's why we pay taxes, so they can do that stuff for us.
No, a car can not be repossessed due to having no registration. A car can be repossessed for non payment. The police can have a car towed to an impound lot if there is no registration.

Your car was probably repossessed by the lender who owns the car until you pay for it. Call your lender and they will be able to tell you how to locate your repossessed car.
Because the lender repossessed the car from where ever it was after being totaled.IF you had gotten the car back after it was totaled, it couldn't have been a repossession.
