Baffled police found an inflated sex doll in the back of an abandoned car after a high-speed chase.
The vehicle was found in Doncaster, Yorkshire, on December 30, after crashing into a bus.
Its passengers ran from the scene, but are set to speak with officers “in the new year”.
Doncaster East NHP posted on Facebook: “So this vehicle made off from officers in the Askern area of Doncaster yesterday and was recovered in Barnby Dun a short while later after a brush with a bus.
“The occupants ran away but unfortunately for the driver, police cars have windows and officers have eyes.
“They have agreed to come in for a chat in the new year. We are interested in the contents of the boot, although it isn't a criminal matter.”
Referencing an episode of Only Fools And Horses, the force afterwards commented: “We'll follow up with the occupants this time next year to see if they actually are millionaires.”
Dozens of Facebook users were intrigued by the bizarre discovery.
One responded: “Maybe they were just taking the girlfriend out for a romantic drive in the countryside?”
Another asked: “Does this go against the rule of mixing with other households?”
A third added: “Wasn’t Del Boy and Rodney was it?”
Yuri Tolochko, from Kazakhstan, said her safe return would be "a gift for both" of them.
He first met her at a nightclub, and the pair were due to get married in March this year before the coronavirus pandemic threw the world into turmoil.
