Trafford police whilst out and about in Partington followed two cars who was seen speeding on Oak Road.
A white BMW 1 series car and a VW Golf were involved and the drivers of both cars got away, however the white BMW was abandoned on Myrtle Road.
It seems police abandoned the chase for the driver of the VW Golf car.
After doing checks on the abandoned car police found the BMW was a stolen car from the Altrincham area and notified the owner who was delighted to see the car again.
If you saw the driver of the white BMW or seen someone running very fast around the Myrtle Road area at around 1.30pm today May 18 tell police as soon as you can on 101, or use the chat facility on the GMP website quoting 565/180519.
