On Sunday, April 12th at LAX at the United Airlines terminal (Gates 82 and 84), my daughter lost her HP digital camera. Our flight number was UA 6428. It was a flight from Los Angeles to Vancouver BC (Canada).

This camera had pictures of her cheer competition and her weekend. This is valuable to her and we are hoping it might have been found in the seating areas and could be returned. It was silver and has white rechargeable batteries in it. She thinks it might have fallen out of her bag and under the seats as we were getting ready to board the plane. Please contact me ( if the camera was turned in.

Regarding the post about the lost camera, this would have happened between 8:00 and 8:30 on Sunday, April 12th at the Gates 82 and/or 84 at the United Airlines terminal in LAX.

Reubens Friend

My son lost his teddybear "Reuben" in the airport Wednesday morning March 11th. He probably left it near the baggage claim area arriving from Newark Airport Continental Airlines. He's had this bear for over 6 years. It's a GUND SCHLEPP BEAR (dark brown) around 16" tall. It's no longer available online. Since it was his nighttime bear since he was born, he's been having trouble going to sleep without it. Would greatly appreciate any info. Thank you in advance for your help!

On Monday 16th March I was a transit passenger on flight NZ2 to London. We were at gate 21 and I either left my necklace there on at security where they take your finger prints on the seats to the side before you go up to the desk.

It has a black cord and a green stone and part of a paua shell in front of the green stone. It's not valuable - worth about $20 NZD but it has great sentimental value.

I really hope someone can help. I am more than happy to pay all postage costs.

On Saturday 14th March 2009 I lost a black Camelbak backpack somewhere around the Qantas Check-in area of either Terminal 4 or the International Terminal (B?). The Contents of the backpack include a hydration pack (small amount of water), green North Face rain jacket, Black Fossil Watch (all metal, a Leatherman Multi-tool in a black nylon sheath (with logo) and a bottle of Frank's Red Hot Sauce (apprximately 300ml. I have reported this to the LAX Airport Police and TSA, however, the lost and found section was closed as it was a weekend. The backpack was definitely lost prior to security screening because of the contents in the bag.

Any help would be appreciated.

We lost a black Olympus brand compact digital camera between leaving JFK airport on March 11 and arriving in Melbourne on March 13 local time.

There is a chance the camera was misplaced at LAX in the security check area, terminal area or left on United Airlines flight 839 (Los Angeles - Sydney - Melbourne).

The camera has little financial value but enormous sentimental value as it features photographs of a holiday through new orleans, chicago and new york - the first photo is of a bald white guy carrying a pack, the last a shot from the top of the empire state building. It was in a zip up black padded case.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Please email

I flew to DTW from LAX this evening and I may have left a carry on bag at the security checkpoint, forgetting to grab it after I had already gotten my other bags. It was a large brown paper bag that read "francesca's." Inside was a dress wrapped in tissue paper along with 3 or 4 pairs of shoes (brown suede flats, bright yellow vans and gray cotton slip ons). There was also a small black bag containing two pairs of tie dye leggings as well as a zip lock bag with a tin of bread. If it is found or being held at the lost and found, please, please, please call or email me, I would really appreciate it.

I have 4 hours wait in LAX enroute from Auckland via La to London, are you allowed to leave the airport for 2-3 hours?

Please help!

By the time you have gone thru the process of being finger printed, had your irises scanned, and yelled at by extremely rude "Security" men you will be a nervous wreck and not fit to go anywhere!

Everything in Los Angeles is 50 miles from everything else and there is no where of any interest to an international traveller anywhere near Los Angeles airport.

With a brief layover you haven't got time to even think of heading to downtown which is basically a dump although it is painfully slowly regenerating. Ditto remarks for Hollywood.

Once you have gone thru the painful admission process you will probably find that you only just have enough time to go thru the equally painful departure security checks.

Have a nice day.

I'm doing a college paper on airport security baqggage claim problems. Can you tell me if there was any security checking positive ownership of baggage at the baggage claim area. I was at Phoenix Sky Harbor and wathched a team of theives work on stealing baggage that was left in the carousle area after the main crowd left. In a two hour period, they took four bags that I saw. Only one cop on a bike rode by during that period. By the way, if I can find your stuff, will you model the bikinis or at least send me rightous Aussie Babe pics? LoL
