I am assuming that the insurance company has been notified and that they have totaled the car and are in the process of forwarding you the value of it. If you cannot find the title then you're going to have to order a new title so that you can give it to the impound so that the vehicle can be scrapped period prior to that being done, the company should allow you to go in and remove your final items that are still in the car. I am guessing that the impound lot wants some final decisions as to how the car is going to be disposed of before they let you go into the car to grab the rest of your stuff. That is something that you should be able to work out.
