If a vehicle is parked legally on a road and is displaying a valid road tax disc, we have no powers to move it, even if it doesn't belong to the local anyone who lives on the street where it's parked.
If nobody returns to the vehicle after a number of days you should contact us on 101 so we can liaise with the DVLA to trace the owner.
If the vehicle is parked illegally, for example, on double yellow lines or in a restricted parking area, or does not have a valid road tax disc, you should report it to us on 101.
