An elderly man who reported his mobility scooter stolen from outside Centre City this morning was soon reunited with it.

Police in the city worked to track down the missing scooter - described as black with a yellow flag - only to discover the machine waiting patiently for its owner's return on the opposite side of the shopping centre.

Sergeant Royston Betteridge said about four police officers were out looking for the elusive machine, reported missing about 11.30am.
One witness on the coastal walkway told searching police he believed he saw the scooter  answering the very same description heading to  Bunnings.

Back at Centre City however, one of the searching officers decided to check the opposite side of the mall.

''It was found in no time at all. He'd parked in a different place from what he thought and had come out the wrong door,'' Mr Betteridge said.
