Baffled police around the world are trying to crack a bizarre Marie Celeste-style mystery after a British registered van was found abandoned with its engine running on an Alpine road but with no trace of the owner. The red Fiat - registered to a Romanian national living in the UK - was discovered with its doors wide open on a mountain pass in Imst, Austria, with its keys in the ignition and its motor idling. But police checks in Austria, Britain and Romania have failed to find the owner - or dicovere why he left the car or of he's in danger. An Austrian police spokesman explained: "There has been no missing person report and nobody has reported the car missing either. "Because the owner was Romanian, the British police have been unable to help much, and passed the case to Romania where police seem to be less interested in taking it up." "It could be that it was used in an undiscovered crime which is why nobody wants anything to do with it," he added.
