The search is on for the #8220;mystery shopper#8221; who mistakenly left suspected Christmas presents in the boot of someone else#8217;s car at a Peterborough shopping park.

When Naheem Sadiq (38), from Walton, returned to his Peugeot 307 in Brotherhood Shopping Park’s car park, he found a stranger’s shopping in the boot.

The items were children’s toys, were worth more than £100.

Mr Sadiq had spent about two hours at the site in Lincoln Road, Peterborough, where he works as a cashier for Asda Living, taking advantage of a discount event for staff. He believes he had left his car unlocked during the shopping trip.

He said: “I put the boot down again to check the number plate. I thought: ‘Have I got the wrong car?’.”

After confirming the car was indeed his, Mr Sadiq was left with few explanations of how the items came to be in the boot.

He said: “I thought: ‘Oh my god, someone has put their shopping in and gone off thinking it’s their car’.”

Mr Sadiq went back into Asda Living, where he had been shopping and coincidentally the items in the boot had been bought, and spoke to staff in the hope of tracing their rightful owner, but to no avail.

For a time, he thought his brother-in-law may have put the items in the boot, having spotted him while at the shopping park, but a phone call to him once he had returned home ruled this out as an explanation.

A phone call to police also failed to clear up the mystery, with the force telling him it had no record of the items having been reported as missing. This led to Mr Sadiq approaching the Peterborough Telegraph to make an appeal through its pages for the owner of the items to contact him.

He said: “It’s someone’s presents. If we can get them back to them, it will be great. If not, I will have to give them to a local charity.”

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire police confirmed to the PT it had no record of missing items matching the description of those found in Mr Sadiq’s boot.

A spokesperson from Brotherhood Shopping Park said: “We would like to thank the gentleman who has come forward with the discovery of the misplaced shopping. It is always nice to see honest people stepping up to ensure others are not out of pocket. We would like to take this opportunity to urge the mysterious shopper to make themselves known.

“If you know of anyone who has spoken of their shopping going missing at Brotherhood Shopping Park, please let us know by using the Brotherhood Facebook page, or alternatively please contact us at”

To get in touch with Mr Sadiq, email or call the Asda Living store on 01733 415200.
