A MOTORIST has shown how they used a GPS tracker to find their car after it was stolen.
In the video uploaded to TikTok by user Kimberly Cohn (@oreodogmom) a bright purple Dodge Challenger Hellcat muscle car worth around £70,000 is tracked down.
The video was shot last year using a smartphone and the caption on the video as it starts reads: 'Husband's car was stolen from Hobby Airport 1 month ago.'
It then goes on to say: 'Tracked it down with GPS once reactivated.'
The video starts with the TikTok user and her husband in a car following the GPS signal along an urban street in Texas.
After a while, the husband says: "There it is!"
