Updated Thursday, Dec. 10, 3:00 p.m.: The Camaro was not stolen or missing, as Riot Fest previously suggested.

Riot Fest's famous red 1990 Camaro is missing, with a John Stamos cutout and some classic rock cassette tapes possibly still inside.

The festival is asking anyone with anyone who sees the car (it has "Riot Fest" written on the side) to email with any details, according to a Facebook post.

The car was last seen at the Cobra Lounge at 235 N. Ashland Ave. on the West Side, the festival organizers say:

We stopped by Cobra Lounge to pick it up and get the transmission fixed, but it was gone. We don't know if it was towed, or stolen, or we forgot where we parked it. If you see it, please let us know. It's a 1990 Camaro. It's red, and it has Riot Fest logos all over it. Last seen at Cobra Lounge.

They're asking people to spread the word about the missing car far and wide.
