Police are asking for the public's help in finding an elderly man's candy-apple red Ford Mustang, which was stolen from a Jackson Township farmers market over the weekend.

An octogenarian from Gardners, Adams County, parked his 1987 Mustang convertible in the parking lot of Morningstar Market, 5309 Lincoln Highway (Route 30), at noon Sunday, according to Northern York County Regional Police.

When the man returned to the lot at 2:30 p.m., his car was gone, police said.

The candy-apple red Ford Mustang has a white convertible top and, at the time it was stolen, displayed an antique vehicle license plate, according to police.

The man kept his key with him, meaning he did not leave it in the ignition, according to Northern Regional Lt. David Lash.

Anyone with information on the theft or the car's whereabouts is asked to call police at (717) 292-3647 or leave a tip online at nycrpd.org.
