JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police are looking for a person who test drove a $32,000 car Wednesday and never brought it back. 

Officer Maurice Kinnard responded to Cavenaugh Kia on South Stadium Boulevard Wednesday night about the theft.

While there, Kinnard spoke to Harry Harvey. Harvey told police that a customer came in about 9:30 a.m. to drive the 2016 Kia Optima. 

Another salesman dealt with the customer, Harvey told police. When the salesman went to the back for a moment, the suspect was gone. 

In a separate case, employees also discovered that a 2007 Nissan Versa was missing from the dealership. 

The Nissan had been missing for about three weeks, Harvey said, noting someone also test drove that vehicle. 

People with information on both cases can call Crimestoppers at 935-STOP.
