Car mystery

My dad died recently and was estranged from the family so we don’t know much about his life. We found keys for a car and log book but not the car. We also found his current car keys but no log book. Current car is easily sorted. My question is do you think another car exists? I’ve looked on the DVLA website and there is nothing against the number plate. It’s been suggested it could have been impounded but not sure and not sure how I would check. I’d just like to check before I write it off. Thanks.

Could it have been something to do with work?

He had been retired for a while so can’t have been a company car. But thanks for the suggestion.

Have you tried other car checking apps? How old is the car?

It’s old. 2002 so most likely gone but if it had gone for part exchange he would have the log book anymore. What other car checking apps are there? If it had been impounded do you ask the police?
