LONDON, England -- The "flying" car used in the Harry Potter films has been stolen from a film studio lot, police say.

"For those who have not seen the Harry Potter films, this is the car that flies in the movies and is very well known," a police spokesman said.

The blue Ford Anglia, registration 7990 TD, went missing from the South West Film Studios in St Agnes, Cornwall, western England.

Devon and Cornwall police said the car vanished between 5.30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 26 and 4.15 p.m. the following day.

"The film prop was being stored under a tarpaulin. It was not in good condition and could not have been driven away under its own steam," the police spokesman told the UK's Press Association.

"It is suspected that it would have to have been towed or full lifted from the scene."

PC Mark Durkowski, from Peranporth, told Reuters the Ford Anglia was in the grounds of the film studios and visible from the road.

"It was very much in the open," he said, adding that he did not believe the majority of people in the area had any idea of the car's connection with the Harry Potter films.
