An elderly couple who forgot where they parked their car are offering a reward for it to be found.

Emmanuel Elliott, 81, and partner Hilda Farmer, 79, parked "within a mile and a half" of Cheltenham General Hospital on Friday, but cannot remember where.

Family and friends have spent four days searching for the Ford Fiesta with no success.

The couple, from Gloucester, have offered £100 to anyone who locates the car.

Mr Elliott said it was on a street with "really nice houses on one side and some kind of greenery on the other".

I lost mine in Walmart parking lot one time.  I had 5 people looking for it, one guy walking around pressing the key button.   When you walk with a walker people like to help. I hope next time they have to go into town they have one of those family or friends drive them.  It is hell getting old.

There was one particular day when driving home from the cemetery, I'd asked my husband if he would turn in at the retail park, I needed something from one of the shops there. He parked the car and I got out while he waited for me, I told him I wouldn't be long. Trouble is my mind was full of other things that day and I took no notice of where he'd parked. So when I came out of the shop I didn't know where the car was and couldn't see it, it's black so doesn't exactly stand out.  After a while I got annoyed with myself for being so stupid but then I spotted it and that was that. Meanwhile my husband just thought I'd got held up in the shop lol!

An elderly couple who forgot where they parked their car have been reunited with the vehicle five days later.

It was found on Tuesday in a car park about 900m from the hospital and had been ticketed three times by wardens.

Mr Elliott said it was "marvellous" to have the vehicle back.
