Last fall we reported that Arthur Weasley, well known collector of Muggle artifacts, had his beloved Ford Anglia car stolen from a film studio lot. This crime has gone unresolved until now, as the enchanted vehicle has mysteriously turned up outside a magical fortress, or in Muggle terminology, Carn Brea Castle. The Scotsman reports that an anonymous call led them to the location of the missing car in Falmouth, Cornwall.

” The Ford Anglia, registration 7990 TD, is pictured on the front cover of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Its magical properties are triggered by a silver button on its dashboard and, as well as flying, it has a Tardis-like expanding interior.

Carn Brea Castle, where the car was found, bears a striking resemblance to the Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft which features in the Harry Potter books. “

No word if Ministry of Magic officials helped in the recovery, or when Arthur will return the car back to its proper home in the Burrow.
