If you feel that it is your duty or obligation to do this, a call to whoever holds the note for the car will be sufficient. If you do not know who the finance people are, in some states your can find this information from the name and / or plate number. Sometimes you can call the police and get guidance from the non-emergency number. And, if not, it probably is not your business.
