One man went for a joy ride on someone else's tractor and didn't return.

The incident happened in Edmonton, Australia, when a man approached a 63-year-old man in the hopes of test driving his tractor. When the suspect took off, he did not return.

Video of the incident shows the man driving the tractor down a street.

Queensland Police say they were searching for the man after his joy ride on May 3.

The lawn mower was since found and returned to its owner, but the man who took it away has not been identified.

ABC News described the incident as "the world's slowest getaway," as the man can be seen cruising down the street with a beer in hand.

The man was accompanied by a female who took off in a car in the opposite direction - that's when the owner of the lawn mower noticed something was fishy.

The owner of the tractor is happy to have his mower returned, but the story still continues to unfold.
