BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:50 P.M.) – A vehicle thought to belong to the Saudi consulate was found in an underground garage park in Istanbul on Monday, according to city police.

Turkish police say the abandoned vehicle, reportedly a black 2011 E-Series Mercedes-Benz sedan, was found on the outskirts of the city, in Sultangazi district. It was said to include a diplomatic number plate.

The garage was cordoned off by police.

Another – unlicensed – vehicle meanwhile was reportedly towed away from outside the Saudi Arabian consulate on Monday.

The discovery of the Mercedes comes following the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi who went missing after entering the consulate to prepare documents for his upcoming marriage on October 2.

His fiancee claims to have waited outside for 11 hours but says he did not return.

Turkish officials claimed he was murdered inside while Saudi officials previously maintained that Khashoggi had left the consulate. They later reversed their position after an internal investigation, and now claim Khashoggi died as a result of a fight inside the building.
