Police say a Chevrolet Camaro used in promotions for pizza chain Papa John's that was among three vehicles stolen during a Detroit-area event showcasing classic cars has been found.

Officer Shanelle Williams says the vehicle was reported found Monday in Detroit. She says a truck and trailer were recovered Sunday.

Police have said the 1971 Camaro Z28 owned by the Louisville, Kentucky-based pizza company was reported missing Sunday morning from the Woodward Dream Cruise, which took place Saturday in suburban Detroit.

Papa John's spokesman Bob Kraut said the car had been on display.

Founder John Schnatter sold the gold-and-black car decades ago to help save his father's tavern in Indiana, leading to the start of what would become Papa John's. In 2009, after years of searching, Schnatter bought it back
