A: It was probably repossessed then. Call the tow truck company and find out why they towed it. If you owed money to someone for the truck, and you fell behind on payments, then they have the right to come and take the truck back. If you are current on all your payments, then find an attorney because either the tow truck company or the lien holder is liable for certain torts, i.e., conversion, wrongful repossession, etc.
