Two phones have been stolen from me between spring and now. Once in the gym and the other While walking down the street in bklyn my phone was snatched from my hand.. That was a very traumatic experience, being so violated. I had replaced it and was always careful. I travelled around Italy and back with it and have managed to not loose it again. Unfortunately, this morning I realized that I did not have my phone. the last time I recall having it was outside of terminal 8 walking towards my cousin's car, AA International Arrivals. My bag fell in the street and I may have lost it there. As I am sure you can imagine, I am very stressed. I am a school teacher and my entire calendar as well as so many important numbers that I have had to work hard to replace are in this phone. Getting this phone back would be such a blessing. I have found phones in the past and returned them. I am praying that this good karma will come back to me, as I have had such bad luck with phones in the past. Thank you so much!



My wife and I left our camera (Canon Powershot point and click) on our plane (Alitalia flight 610 from Rome to JFK on August 29th 2009). We were sitting in business class (row 9A and C) and we left it in the front compartment. it is a silver camera and it is enclosed in a black flip case. We have over 600 pictures of our honeymoon on the memory card and it is very important to us. I don't care about the camera, just the memory card. please contact me if you have the memory card. a reward will be given. ryan20741@aol.com or 732-233-4222


I lost a Silver Sony Camera on an American Airlines Flight from Rome to JFK on August 30th. The camera was in Pink Carrying Case. We had over 300 pictures from our trip an it is extremely valuable to us. If you have any information, I will pay a reward for the return of the camera. Call 518-429-8561.


Goodmorning. I went on flight 740 on August 29th 2009, leaving from Ponce, Puerto Rico to Jfk New York Leaving at 5:05 am arriving at 9:00am. I arrived around 9 am in the morning in JFK on August 29th (Saturday). The phone is a Sony Ericsson TM506, Amber. It is a flip phone. It fell out of my phone when my purse went sideways on Aisle 17. This really isnt valuable, but the phone had several photos and videos of my one year old son that are irreplacable. Please contact me if found. There is a reward.

I spoke with my cellphone company and they told me that no one has used the phone which means it is still in the plane in between the seats. If someone had taken it, they would have used it and it would have shown on my statement and bill, but I made a last call when I arrived and that has been the last one. It is still in that plane. I beg of you, jetblue and the airline to check aisle 17 on that Jetblue plane. It would mean the world to me, if you guys can look through it. CAll me if you found the phone, my number is 4133643119.

Thank you.

I was hand carrying some expensive recording equipment so I stuck my laptop in my luggage... in a laptop bag... at the bottom of my suitcase. I KNOW it was in the bag when i checked it in at JFK, but it didn't arrive in England. They broke a picture frame while they were ripping my laptop out too. I had the most amazing time in New York, but, JFK airport put a downer on my whole vacation. Worst airport in the world (and i've been through many of them). After speaking to my airline, they told me that I could get a claim out of it but i'll never see my laptop again. Worst airport in the world. rudest terminal staff i have ever met.

I work in an airport. I service the Rapiscan machines they use to scan our baggage. The only way for this to happen is for someone to see the laptop on the screen and know exactly where to find it. Usually, the baggage moves so fast that the operator wouldn't have time to get out of his chair to do that... so... someone else did it for him. They've probably been doing it enough to get real good at it by now.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I checked in for Lufthansa flight 411 on 10th Aug. I was travelling to Istanbul via Munich. 1 out of 3 pieces of my lugagge did not make it to Istanbul. After checking their records Lufthansa informed me that the bag never boarded the flight from JFK.

This leads me to believe that it got stuck at the X-ray machines where it was dropped off with the other 2 pieces of luggage. If it got lost anywhere else in the airport, it would have been picked up by Lufthansa Lost & Found.

The piece of luggage was a burgundy/pruple soft upright case. It is of a relatively large size and had a small bright green padlock on it. Also on it was a lufthansa yellow "HOT" tag. Inside, among other things there were the following:

- can of cappuccino (500 grams)
- chocolate syrup by Hersheys
- 2 cans of vanilla coffee, (500 grams each)
- Purple large shawl (scarf) with purple flower pattern
- Size 39 white ladies sports shoes by Puma
- Large Yellow bag containing ladies clothes:
- Pink makeup bag containing:
white ladies bag by Guess, inside the bag 1 men’s T-Shirt
- Braun silk-epil epilator and charger
- 1 sunscreen by Banana Boat
- Medium size Blue gentelman’s shirt Abercombie and Fitch
- 5 pairs of ladies underwear, in the inside pocket of the suitcase.
- Pink bra in the luggage pocket

Any help would be immensely appreciated. Will pay a REWARD.

I came into JFK on 8th Aug evening (around 5 PM). I had left behind my notebook-cum-diary on top a coin-box telephone.

The notebook has black synthetic cover, has the Logo of Chinese Telcom Equipment Manufacturer "HUAWEI" at the first page.

The notebook has lot of personal info which is very important for me but of no value to others. It has a lot of phone numbers written in green ink. Would appreciate if somebody can find it for me and send it to 4826, 63rd Street, woodside, NY 11377. Though right now I am not in New York, but can reach that addrees with ease.

on the 9th of august, 2009 I traveled from FL, Florida to JFK and from there to Israel. when I got home and open my suitcase, I figured out that the new shoes I bought (which were pretty expensive) werent in the suitcase! I talked to my family in florida and they searched the whole house which got me in conclusion- somebody opened my suitcase and STOLE the new shoes. It will be very kind if the crew that are responsible for the transfer of the suit cases will check for the shoes and not open any more suitcases of people that are traveling! I do not think that everytime I am traveling the world I should be concerned about my stuff getting lost! Thank you for your help,

PS the shoes were rear pumas from the store JOURNYS (they are white and the written PUMA was colorful) size 6 or 7

I know it's so vague to say "black backpack" but here's what was inside:

Dell 700m Inspiron laptop (13")
Glenn Beck's Common Sense
a few other random items

If anyone has it I'd be glad to let them keep it, just let me use it for a day first to get my stuff off of it. The hard drive is encrypted and you'll never get my stuff. I'll even help you install windows freshly on it if you want. I just want it back for a day. I already bought a new computer. I don't need the computer, just the stuff on it.

On July 27, at about 6 pm, during the check in at Terminal 3 for the flight no. 136 to Pisa I realised I had lost my digital camera and its case, a black bag also equipped with some CF memory cards and an USB cable. I am quit sure I had the camera when I got off the E train of MTA at the Sutphin Blvd stop. I suspect I could have left the camera either in the air train to Terminal 3 or in the check in area. I kindly ask you if the camera, an obsolete device, has been found. I especially hope you'll find the memory card where all the shots of my vacation in New York are stored.

If you have any useful information, please contact me at the e-mail address above.

Thanks a lot for cooperation.
