This is not an official TSA lost and Found board The only way to contact the TSA is at their phone and leave a message.

This is a private website not connected with TSA or any other entity of the federal government.

We know that you are upset with losing your belongings, but make sure you know who the right people to contact are.
Also check your airlines contract of carriage to see what is covered. They have changed their rules so many things that were covered are not covered in checked baggage.

It's better to be safe than sorry.

And you should realize that by putting all your personal info out there in cyberspace you are putting yourself at some risk.



At about 23:00 19 dec we landed and took a jellow cab straight away to the hotel. Somewhere either in the cab or at JFK (not very likely) Did NOT take a recit from the cab and I dont remember the cab company except it was a yellowcab, perhaps a ford modell.
I lost my green bag, small "5:11" handbag. Camera Canon DS (something) was inside, my Swedish Passport, driver license, mobilephone and some other stuff. Any help or ideas would be any help.
Have done a polisreport already and now I am back home in sweden. But still. Want it all back of course.

I lost my IPAD in black case with headphones on December 27th, probably in the security area of Terminal 5 JetBlu. If found PLEASE respond, it has personal family pictures I would love to get back.

I visited McDonald's at JFK and I was sitting on row 33
Of the American Airlines flight ba1517. Maybe it is on the plane seat or in the overhead compartments. It has money in it and bank cards and my driving license

Or I lost on some chair at the boarding area of the gate 27 or I lost at the security verification when I had to take off things from my pocket.

On the 21st of December around lunch time,whilst checking in my baggage at terminal 7 I have misplaced some hand luggage. It is a rolled up painting and poster in a postal tube left at either the US airways or United airlines counters within terminal 7. The painting is of a rainy street about 1.5m by 1m and the poster is about an A3 size of two cartoon dogs lying on a beach with a caption underneath with my name (Kira) and another name (Dale) withing.
They are inexpensive items but have a huge sentimental value and would really like them back. I have contacted both airlines and the lost and found phone numbers and no one will return my call. I am from Western Australia so it is impossible for me to actually return to the airport at this stage. Please contact me via my email. Thank you
