If you have a car, the title, registration and insurance was in your name and someone was using that vehicle and supposed to be paying you so many dollars a month then they quit paying. You don't know where they live at the present time, they have moved out of state, do not respond to your emails would you consider the vehicle stolen?

Yes the vehicle is stolen. No finance company would let them get away with this and neither should you. Is this factual or is this just a thread to be discussed?

They would be considered a hot pursiet for sure! But the problem is this-who ultimately holds the title, you or them?

I certainly would. I hope you have all the supporting evidence. Did you sign an agreement? I think I would get the police involved as well. Of course, you know that there will be some sad story, plus a claim that he/she tried to contact you. I hope the car is still in one piece.

No I didn't sign any deal with the driver to take it out of state and not pay. Thanks

Do you have anything in writing? Even so, yes I would consider it a theft, and report the situation to the police department. But, write an e-mail, and let the person know of your intensions, if you don't get a response within a few days, then report it, also let the insurance company know.

I think you need to protect yourself and go to your local police station and explain your delima and ask for their help in resolving this matter because if they are up to no good or have an accident then you possibly could be liable because everything is in your name and you have a right to know what is going on.

With everything being in your name(including the insurance),it is still your propert.This person may have had your permission to borrow your vehicle(as in rent ro own)but has failed on that account and now need the police's help to regain what is legally still yours.
