Flash Drive lost March 9 on NW 333 from Detroit. I was sitting in seat 29F. The drive is 2G with a base that is a different color than the cap. I'm trying to get in touch with the airline and find where that plane went after LAX, but it's proving pretty difficult, so thought I'd try here. If found, please contact me at (818) 599-1088.

On Feb 21, I flew out of LAX to Auckland, NZ. Once on my plane, I realized that my ipod didn't make it through security. I remember putting it in the small tote for security, and heard the officer telling the other one to pick up the ipod. And, saw him with the handle of my purse, and because my hands were full, I thought he put it in my bag. (I could've sworn that's what he did, and I even thanked him) Then I ran to my gate. Now it is gone.

Its a fifth generation Ipod with video, with an artistic gelskin outside of it with a fairy. I've since replaced the ipod with a cheaper mp3 player, but I had about 3000 songs on the first one. Because of the time diff, I am having trouble reaching the office besides a voice mail. And, if it is found how do I get it back? Thanks in advance.

Anonymous (not verified) is the email addy for the lost and found office. If it was lost at T2, then you need to contact them and they can start a file and a search.
Good luck.

On Friday July 24th we were going thru security/TSA where they make you take off our shoes and put all that we are carrying and some belonging to some white plastic boxes/containers. My husband Juan Rios left his Emporio Armani watch byitself on one of those containers. Due to he had to go thru the sensor detector a few times, when picking up his stuff from the containers he forgot to get his watch. I believe that no one was behind him right away therefore it is unlikely that other passenger would take it. It is an armani watch..the face is rectangle/square..all metal and the face background is light brown, has the armani logo.
On Sunday August 10th, we came back from Mexico and went and asked @ the gate where this incident happended and TSA advised that if they got the watch they would have taken it to the lost and found dept.
Please let me know if you found it and how to pick it up.
Thank you,
Liliana Gomez

I am looking for my important Graduate Diploma! On Feb 11th I traveled from LAX to HKG by UA867. After I came back at home and opened my suitcase, I could not find my Graduate Diploma which was enclosed in a hard cover envelope. My suitcase was broken open by your security check agent, which is fine. But I could not believe such an important document could not disappear during that stage. Please do check if you found my Graduate Diploma and let me know the result.

My formal evening top (used on the Island Princess cruise ship) disappeared from my luggage from the time it left my room on board ship at 6pm February 20 to the time I returned home at 6pm February 21. It is black and velvety with swirls of multicolored glitter. It has a round neckline. We came through LAX security (our only airline stop) at apprx. 10:30 am 2-21-2008. I don't expect to retrieve my lost item, but I thought security should be aware of this occurence. My suitcase was locked with the new security type lock. If there is any information, please contact me at the email address provided. Thank-you, Julie D.

I lost my brand new Fuji Film Finepix Camera, model # - S9600 at the LAX airport near the immigration counter. I had just gotten of the Cathay Pacific Flight CX-882 from Hong Kong to LA yesterday (1st Feb 2008) and was waiting for the immigration interview when I had taken out the camera to get my papers from my hand baggage. I did not remember to put the camera back in the bag.

If you find the camera (it is in a black case-logic camera cover). You can verify the camera is mine by the photos on the camera and there is also a USB for my I-pod in the cover, please let me know immediately since it is a brand new camera.

I am currently in Phoenix and can be contacted at the mobile number 602-327-3257 or at 602-355-4672. I would be eternally grateful if you could find the camera and return it.

Thanks and Regards,
Roshan George

Can you please tell me if the camera of the description that I have stated above has been found by any of the Airport authorities. Since, I have lost it within the confines of the LA Airport (that too the immigration interview room), I am confident that the camera must have been found and returned to the respected authority.

Please do let me know as this loss has caused a lot of distress for the past few days.

Yours respectfully,

Dear Sir/Madam,

At 11.55 am on Saturday 19th January 2008 at Tom Bradley, I passed my hand luggage through the screening point closest to Departure Gate 119 & 120 (on the side closest to the other terminals 1, 2 & 3). From our group of 22, I was selected to have an item checked by the operator of the furthest left (as you approach the units) who was a slim lady of middle years with longish hair and I think glasses. She was unsure as to whether she should let it go through or not and the officer assisting her said he would check it after viewing her screen. He was a heavy set African American who was very interested in the fact that I was with a touring teenage basketball team from Australia. We moved to the examination table a couple or so yards past that point where I could put my shoes back on as well. He was happy with the watch in my bag and I said that I was happy to put it back together as I had stuff all over the place. I went around and sat in the chair he had occupied, placed my jacket and the camera mentioned in the subject line on the floor by the side of the table while I repacked the bag (he may remember - it was a bright red bag and I had Sudoku puzzle books and loose papers, among other things). When I stood to go I picked up my jacket and put it on but I forgot the camera bag next to the table. There is no name on the items in the bag but underneath the camera are two strings of cheap beads that were being thrown to the audience at Disneyland. In the small compartment next to the camera is an electrical cord with a two pin plug that is made for Australian usage. Underneath that are two round lens attachments that join together to shield the dun from the lens if needed. On the outer of the case is a compartment that has the charging unit for the battery.
If more is needed to identify the unit you may examine the pictures on the unit itself. Scrolling right you will get a picture of Christmas lights followed by a bunch of pictures taken in Taipei and scrolling left you will get a picture or two of our tour kids outside the Tropicana Inn on Harbor Blvd, Anaheim and about 3 of the monorail at Disneyland going past. Further left are pictures of fireworks (not all came out) and then a some taken at our last dinner in LA and a whole lot taken at Disneyland.
I am quite anxious to retrieve the camera, not only as it is a very new and expensive item for me, but also as it has a photographic record of our teams' successes and failures of their 31 matches played in the 16 days we were in Washington state. They were to be used in conjunction with a series of DVD's that we are making of the tour. I am more than happy to cover the expense of having the camera returned if it was found. I am reasonably hopeful that the folk working in that area spotted the unattended item and placed into Lost & Found.

If you are not the correct person to be handling this inquiry, I thank you for your patience in reading this story and request that you simply reply to this e-mail advising me of the correct e-mail address that I actually need.

Yours sincerely,

Ian Ryan

On approximately 1-7-08, I was removed from my transfer from a Florida Delta Flight to a Monterey American Eagle flight; I was suffering and asked to be sent to the closest hospital Emergency Room.

My old, ragged but important Black Leather Fanny Pack, held together with tape, held many important items:
1. Two Emergency Health Problems and Emergency Contacts Sheets
2. A round, irreplaceable contact lens case that had held new lenses
3. Two engineering mechanical pencils (I'm a terminally ill, disabled software engineer)
4. Two sewing "seam rippers": one red and one blue
5 Numerous important private notes, and more.

The people responsible for the health crisis that night, stole the letter I received from you approximate two weeks ago, the very night after it arrived; they've selectively stolen my mail since 5-2005 and I can get no help from the local post office or the Postal Inspection Office. Neither will the local police help. I'm 54 yrs old, weigh 92 lbs, and have been beaten up by these young jerks over and over since 7-2004.

With the theft of the letter, I have no "800" phone number, extension, or name of the necessary contact person. My phone number can be attempted, but is usually blocked calling in or out. (As usual, AT&T could do nothing.)

I will pay whatever it takes to have this item returned by any trackable method other than mail (i.e., FedEx). I'm also missing a "Salt & Pepper" Sweater Set (they even stole all of my clothing).

Any way you can contact me would be appreciated:
1. My phone: 831.372.0950
2. My best friend's work number: 831.656.4705 (Dr. Tim Hogan at the Naval Research Lab)
3. My caregiver's work number: 831.883.8000, ext. 113 (Ask for "Vern," when you reach this extension at Desert Star Electronics).
4. My Address is: 6 Arkwright Ct, Apt 1, Pacific Grove, CA 93950

Your help and graciousness is appreciated. Please, do not give up on trying to contact me. Again, please send an "800" number, contact person and their extension. Thank you! I hope to hear from you soon.

On January 4th, around 9:15 pm I entered LAX around the American Airlines check-in desk. I then went up the escalator to security and found that my earring was missing. I know it is a long shot, but if it is found, I would greatly appreciate being notified. The earrings are of sentimental value and I am sick at the thought of it being missing. The earring is a princess cut (square) diamond set in white gold. Thank you.
