Possibly, but it is more likely to be the crime of embezzlement or the civil wrong of "conversion", meaning they have taken property with the intent to deprive you of its use permanently. You can sue to have it returned to you, or at least to have your partial ownership recorded on the title.

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 stolen.

No.Another View: The police may retain any items found in the car pending proof that they actually are your property.REMEMBER: The car was reported stolen... and then it was recovered and impounded. The perpetrators MAY have used the vehicle during a crime spree and stashed their stolen goods in the car. The owner of the stolen vehicle would not be the beneficiary of the stolen goods just because they were in his vehicle. and they may have to present proof that the items found in the car actually belong to them.

How can you get a title for a car that was purchased in Ohio without one and you are in TN.?

It was a mistake to purchase a vehicle in Ohio that did not come with a title. Ohio vehicle owners can easily replace lost titles. Since this wasn't done, it can only be assumed that you purchased a vehicle that may have been stolen in some way (stolen & reported, stolen & not reported, or a self assembled car that was never inspected by the Ohio Highway Patrol)

Can a car be reported as stolen because the loan went into default?

Can it? Yes, by the lender in some case. If the debtor is actively attempting to hinder repossession in many states, or if the vehicle is in possession of a third party who is not on the loan or vehicle registration, then a repossession agent may file a stolen vehicle report. Most will not, preferring to allow the lender to take such action instead.Can it be reported stolen by the debtor once repossession takes place? Often vehicles are reported stolen after repossession happens. However, this is a cautious area. Most debtors already know the vehicle is being sought, and law enforcement takes a dim view of filing false or malicious reports.
