A man freaked out after finding a severed human finger in his truck, police in Australia said.

The finger was found under the side panel of the truck, which was parked outside a Hallam automotive business located on Hallam Road.

The owner of the truck has told the police that at first, he thought it was rust. On closer inspection, he realized it was the tip of a finger, including the nail.

Police do not yet know whose finger it is and how it got in the truck. Police said that the finger had been sent to the coroner’s office for fingerprinting and DNA testing, but no match was found.

It was also impossible to determine the age or gender of the person who had lost his finger. Police are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
