Tanseco added that the HPG asked all of its regional units to use Facebook account to reach out to anyone who has had their cars taken away.

According to the HPG-National Capital Region (NCR), it had in its custody approximately 250 units such as taxis, motorcycles and expensive sport utility cars.

If your license plates have been stolen, lost, or damaged, you should check other information which can include accident information, a description of the car, pictures, verification of recent mileage.

After going into the HPG-NCR’s Facebook, if you fail to look for your missing cars, then you can check any other regional unit of the agency.

To people who are claiming any of the impounded and recovered cars posted on the HPG’s Facebook account, the claimants can just bring their related papers such as the vehicle's official receipt and certificate of registration (OR/CR) to the HPG office to prove your car ownership.
