Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You cannot report the car stolen, it is not stolen, it was given to her as a civil contract, so this is a civil matter and you would have to sue her in court and you will have to find the contract to enforce.
If the car is still in your name, if you could locate it in FL, you could use a tow company upon giving them proof you own it, to tow the car and repossess it. But if you cannot find where the car is then you are going to be limited to suing her. You can file charges on her for signing your name for forgery and identity theft and you would do that through the DA in the state where she signed them.
You need to pursue this in civil court though for the car and breach of contract.
Thank you for your reply.If you can find the car and proof of ownership, or get duplicate title from the state, you can get it towed. If not you have to sue.

If you cannot find the agreement, with the title still in your name, you can sue for repossession (Replevin) of the vehicle, but then you bear the burden of proving the other terms of the oral contract, because without a written agreement proving your agreement it is treated like an oral agreement.
