CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — In September 2019, Felicia Ross bought a car from a local used car dealership.
She still doesn't have the title, so she contacted the Troubleshooters for help.

Ross bought a 2008 Ford Edge from King Motorcars on Staples at Wooldridge, paying $1,276.00 cash for it.

Shortly after she bought it, she went to Arizona, where she lives, for health reasons, according to her dad.

And ever since, Patrick Robbins, Ross' dad, has been going back and forth to the dealership, trying to get them to give him the title so he can send it to his daughter to register the vehicle there in Arizona.

Robbins recalled a conversation he claims had with a man named Robert, who works at the dealership, just a few days ago, about getting the title from the owner.

"Why can't he just go ahead and just give you the title, and have it here, because every time I come in, you're here, but he's not here."

'He' is owner, a man named Israel.

But he wasn't at the dealership when the troubleshooters went there.

We left our card, and Robert called us back.

Their story is they have the title.

But first, they want Felicia, who bought the car, to send them some kind of official authorization to release the title to her dad.

And they'd like dad to provide some kind of proof that he really is dad.

So we called Ross and told her what Robert told us, and she said she'd get right on it.
