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.

please do not loss any items at jfk airport as the number you call will only give you machines to talk to and cost you a fourtune in the mean time. If anyone form this airport reads my email please look for my glasses lost at terminal 4 gate b22 monday 26th october and if they have not been handed in reply so that I can make a claim on my travel insurance which I cannot without getting something in writing and if delta is looking at this the big majority of your staff were great but the man at gate 22 on monday evening was very unhelpful when I asked about lost property sham on him.

unfortunately I lost my engagement ring.
After landing at JFK with flight LH400 on October 25th I went through immigration (at around 2:30pm). Directly after retrieving my luggage I went to the men's bathroom just before customs. There I took off my ring and put it beside the sink while washing my hands...I must have forgotten it there...and went straight through customs...

It is a wide silver ring with imprinted gold loops and a very thin platinum band around the diameter.

Please contact me if you found this ring...I will happily pay a handsome reward...

I was traveling from JFK to DIA on Friday 16th October. I checked two bags, a suitcase and a small camera bag with no camera gear in it. That bag was open when it came out off the baggage carasel. The only thing of personal value that was missing from it was a small memory card holder the was grey with red trim and looked kind of like a very small wallet and was attached to the bag by a cord. The cord had been snapped off and now I have lost 3000 of my brothers wedding photos. I am offering a $1000 reward for it's return with the memory cards, no questions asked.
