The Black Eyed Peas man admits he is close to discovering the culprit and says items were taken from the motor.

Will.i.am has revealed that he hired a private investigator to find out who was responsible for stealing his customised car last week.

The 'This Is Love' star took to his Twitter account last night (23rd August) to tell his followers that his team are close to finding the offenders, adding that although he has the motor back – some items were taken.

"The private investigators I hired are close on finding out who was responsible for my car being stolen..I have my car but items were taken," he tweeted.

The Black Eyed Peas man returned to a parking lot following a night out at the Avalon club in Los Angles - where he had left the customised DeLorean sports car - to find it missing.

He vented his anger on his social networking account at the time of the incident and "prayed" for its safe return.

Meanwhile, Will is finishing up work on his new album '#willpower' which will include collaborations with the likes of Justin Bieber, LMFAO and the 'Don't Hold Your Breath' singer.
