If you checked for your car and found it gone, then you have already completed the first step. The next step is to contact your local police department with your car’s license plate number. They will be able to pull up the current status of your vehicle and will know when it was towed. 

This assumes that the city towed your car and you were parked somewhere you shouldn’t have. If you were parked on private property and towed, you would have to get in contact with the owner of that property. Once again, provide your license plate number or VIN. 

If none of them have information on your car, then there is a chance that it might’ve been stolen. From there, you should cooperate with the police to recover or find it.
