Grove City police said an Indiana man reported May 23 that his brother's car, which he had been using, was stolen while he was staying at a hotel on the 4000 block of Marlane Drive.

The man said he might have left the keys in the car because he could not find them when police asked if he still had them.

He last saw the car at 9 p.m. May 22 and discovered it was missing at 7:30 a.m. May 23. During that time period he had two visitors in his hotel room. The man said he fell asleep while the visitors were still in the room, and when he woke up the next morning, they were gone. He then discovered the car was missing.
