Officers found the orange McLaren over the side of Latigo Canyon Road at around 9:40 a.m. but the driver was nowhere to be found.

‘Looks like they didn’t want to be there when @CHPWestValley arrived,’ the search and rescue team tweeted.

A number of images taken by offices with Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and California Highway Patrol were posted online as they descended the steep face to retrieve the vehicle. 

It wasn’t long before the car was soon back at the top, no doubt with a few scratches.
