A stolen car has been returned to its rightful owner after being missing for 14 years.
Milos and Spomenka Jokic from Bosnia left their car on a Belgrade street during a holiday in 1994.
When they returned hours later, they discovered their Mark II Golf was missing.
Fourteen years later, the Bosnian couple was surprised to receive a knock on their door from a police officer who said they had recovered the car.
During a routine roadside check, police realized the car was stolen after they ran a trace on it.
Milos says the car drives as well now as it did before it was stolen.
