Once the vehicle is secured:

  1. Reports it to the local police department
  2. Takes it to the storage facility
  3. Fills out a condition report of any damage and mileage
  4. Removes and inventories personal property left in it, if any
  5. Stores the car until it is redeemed by the debtor (usually for a fee) or transported to auction
  6. Stores the personal property until it is redeemed (usually for a fee) or until the deadline for pickup is reached (varies by state, usually 30 days).

If the sibling has the car with permission, you CANT report it stolen. If you are listed on the TITLE as owner or co-owner, go get the car. If you are listed as leinholder, have some type of proof that sibling is in DEFAULT of a loan using the car as collateral, go get it or hire a repo agency to get it.
