Returning evidence in an investigation to the owner

Okay, I've tried googling this, but I don't think I've been using the right word combinations. 'Returning evidence', 'evidence procedures', 'evidence to owner' hasn't really given me what I'm looking for, though I do know rather more about chain of custody and the like.

The scene is modern day America, New York to be exact and my character was abducted from her car.

Assuming that the car and it's contents are taken in as evidence, how long until she can get it back? Will she get it back at all or will it be held until the trial is over and the case closed?

Thanks,

Cait
