A student took matters into her own hands when her Ford Fiesta was stolen from outside her home – by using an Apple AirTag to track it down herself and documenting the journey on .
Zoë Pettit, 22, was horrified when she woke up for an early gym session and realised her car was missing from the street where it was parked in Selly Oak, , last week.
Helpfully she had tucked an Apple AirTag, a tracking device that can be traced via phone, into the lining of her boot after fellow students advised her about a spate of car thefts in the area.
So when the business student discovered her car had been stolen, she and two university friends set on a mission to find it – and were successful within a matter of hours despite police reportedly failing to have any luck.
Zoë Originally from Norwich, Norfolk, explained: ‘Every morning I just double check it’s there because you see quite a few posts from people saying their car was stolen overnight.
‘I looked up the road and I thought I was going crazy because I couldn’t see it.’
