I have checked to see it it was ever registered for a waste carrier licence and there was no results ... I suggest local cctv From a possible route is looked into Pubs Small shops etc (could it have passed petrol stations) Check out garages scrapyards within 50 miles (to start with )as someone will possibly recognise that truck .. post it to all Facebook Community Groups Look in all local small adds ebay Shpock gumtree etc to see if it has been sold recently or advertised ... It also comes up with the MOT History can the testing station be located? ...
The owner really needs to Do there own investigation
Insurers/underwriters have investigation depts and investigators employed to check on fraudulent claims and anything else that is costing the industry a fortune. Maybe the owner needs to get his insurer to look into getting an investigator involved, which considering the value of the car, is a no brainer. They will have full access to databases and can liaise with the Police in a way the owner will not be able to.
If you have a decent sort of professional scrapyard as said that might be a start if they have the reg on file and will share details . I'm not going to out down the obvious but if you get a name its not to difficult to find them . If you have been to the police previously and can then show them a name they will most likely know them and then do something , they juyst don't have the resources to do the donkey work themselves .
