Registering a car not in your name. Please help PIOG

Last week me and my bf broke up. The car he's driving is in my name. He bought it off of craigslist but the insurance, title. And registration are in my name. I'm going out of town this weekend and I've been trying to get ahold of him to let him know I'm going out of town so I can sign over the title before I leave but he's not answering my text or calls. Is there away for him to register the car in his or his aunts name without me signing over the title?? He stole the title from my lock box when he left. Any advice would be great thanks

 Thats what i thoght. He doesnt have a licence so i'm trying to get the car out of my name ASAP but since he stole the title out of my lock box while i was at work i cant just sign it and be done with it. I tried to report the car stolen when he left since its in my name but the cops said they wouldnt report it stolen cause he bought the car. But the title, insurance and registration are in my name and he doesnt have a licence

It depends what state you're in, but you may want to report the car stolen at this point.

Who cares if he doesn't have a license? That won't reflect on you at all. Reporting the car stolen also seems really harsh, you acknowledge you are going to sign it over to him and he bought it. Just fill out a sale form with your state, that will have a date on it and if something happens you have proof that you "sold" the car to him on that date.

I'm in Nevada. I tried to report it stolen but because he bought the car the cops won't do anything even though it's in my name. And my ex said we can go to court and the person who sold him the car would be a witness and testify against me.

Legally its your car. Don't tell them he paid for it. Here in Illinois it's not as easy as just signing a title.

But don't I have to sign over the title so he can register it in his name?? I don't even have the title anymore because he stole it while I was at work

When the cop talked to him he told them he bought the car and he has proof they also talked to his aunt as well

Yes he needs the title to register it in his name but since you can't report it stolen anyway and he doesn't seem interested in having the title signed, reporting it as sold on this date will cover your ass.
