Despite being told she would be reunited with her car on Monday it had still not been found by the time she returned to the airport.

I’ve had to cancel three physiotherapy appointments for Izola.”The owner of 1st Gatwick Parking Mark Smith, which is unrelated to the firm, says he has been contacted by people looking for their cars by phone and at the airport. Hundreds of holidaymakers were left stranded at Gatwick Airport after a car parking firm closed down and failed to return their vehicles.Police were called when meet-and-greet parking company Gatwick First Parking ceased trading and people returning to the airport discovered their cars were missing.Officers said around 120 vehicles were found to be parked at various sites in Sussex and Surrey, and keys for cars left by travellers before they flew out were discovered at a Surrey office.A further 30 keys were found at the firm, which is not a Gatwick-approved meet-and-greet parking company and has no relationship with the airport, but the cars have yet to be found.Kyle and Libby Augustin had returned from a family break to Portugal with their one-year-old twins on Saturday night and discovered the company that was looking after their black Audi Q7 had simply disappeared. The couple’s daughter Izola has cerebral palsy and it was close to midnight when they called Gatwick First Parking.After calling police themselves, the Augustins were initially told that it was a matter for trading standards and they were forced to return home by taxi at a cost of £130.Mrs Augustin, from Tenterden, Kent, said: “We had collected our bags and were all tired but we couldn’t get hold of the firm so we went to where we’d dropped off the car but couldn’t see it and that’s when we bumped into another couple who were on the phone to Sussex Police about their missing car.” “I’ve been here for 30 years and I’ve seen this sort of thing happen before. It is very easy to set up here, blast through the summer and disappear without a trace,” he said.A spokesman for Sussex Police said that although the situation was a civil matter it had worked to reunite owners with their cars, although 30 are still to be located.Sergeant Darren Taylor, of the Gatwick Policing Team, said: “It’s essential that Gatwick Airport passengers use official on-airport parking, or companies registered with Gatwick’s off-airport approved parking operators scheme only, to avoid this sort of thing from happening.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?
