TRAIL, Ore. (WTHR) - A Porsche stolen from an Oregon movie theater in 1991 was found flipped in the woods this week.

Police in Jackson County, Oregon say a man walking in a wooded area near Trail found the 1979 Porsche 924 coupe on a steep embankment Tuesday afternoon. Detectives checked the wreckage, which was impossible to see from the road due to a cliff, and found no human remains, though some bones in the area were later determined to be those of a deer.

Investigators say the tags on the vehicle, which was reported stolen from a parking lot in Medford on January 20, 1991, expired that same year. Debris from the surrounding forest leads police to believe the Porsche has been in the woods for awhile.

Police are working on a plan to remove the vehicle from its current position.
