Tips for Recovering Lost or Stolen Items

It’s easy to panic if you’ve lost something (or worse, it’s stolen from you). The good news is it’s possible to recover stolen items. You just need to know how to start searching.

Learn what to do when you lose your valuables, how to recover them, and how to prevent loss in the first place.

Preventing property crime and loss

Follow these pointers to prevent your valuables from getting lost or stolen:

  • Keep records. Keep important information on hand like serial numbers and vehicle identification numbers. These records make the search for stolen goods easier.
  • Use digital trackers. Whether it’s an app or a tracking device, placing digital beacons on your valuables can help you recover them if they are lost or stolen.
  • Lock it. While locks aren’t always foolproof, they at least discourage theft, especially in public places.

Missing phone

When your phone goes missing, you might feel lost too.

According to the PreyProject’s 2018 report, 69.12% of those surveyed misplaced their phone while the remaining 30.88% had their phones stolen over the course of the year.1 The same report lists the home, on the street, at work, or on public transit as common places where the over 800 people surveyed lost their phones.

What to do next

Your smartphone may be lost, but it’s not forgotten. Follow these tips to try and track it down:

  • Use a locator app. Android and iPhones both have built-in apps to help you locate your phone.

Locator apps

Android and Google: Find My Device helps you locate your Android phone, laptop, or tablet.

iOS and Apple: Find My locates iPhones, Macbooks, AirPods, and Apple Watches. Log into your iCloud account and go from there.

  • Send a text. If you left your phone in a public place, send a text message to your phone with the return information. If your texts are set to appear on your home screen, it makes it easy for the restaurant, store, or Good Samaritan to return it.
  • Take precautions. If your phone’s still missing, take some preventative measures. Start by backing up your phone, then wiping it remotely to prevent thieves from stealing more. You should also change your passwords to apps and accounts you use frequently.
  • Inform your carrier. Next, contact your service provider. They can disable your service, help trace your phone, or get you a replacement phone.
  • Contact your police department. Police reports can help you fight any fraudulent charges that come up after your phone goes missing. If your phone is insured, you might need a police report to process your claim.

How to back up your phone

Missing laptop or tablet

Whether it’s in a coffee shop, on public transit, or in your own home, losing your laptop can be a nightmare. These are a few ways to increase your chance of recovering your laptop.

What to do next

Don’t give up your lost laptop—try these tips to locate it and keep it safe until it turns up:

  • Consider your surroundings. If your laptop gets swiped in a public space, there may be surveillance footage of the act. Ask anyone sitting nearby if they saw something and talk to employees about any footage they might have.
  • Try a locator app. The Find My Device (Android) and Find My (Apple) apps work with laptops and tablets too. Try locating your device with one of these.
  • File a police report. Call law enforcement. Like with any valuable device, a police report can help you out down the road.
  • Wipe your information. Some software allows you to wipe all your data remotely. If this isn’t an option, you can still use services like iTunes and Google to log out of your accounts and deauthorize all devices.
  • Contact your insurance. If someone steals your device from your home or car, your insurance might cover it. Call your agent to find out.
  • Start looking. Start with local pawn shops and online listings on sites like Craigslist and eBay. If you find your device, don’t buy it or let the seller know it’s yours. Instead, ask if they can hold the item for you, and contact the police department so the authorities can recover your stolen items.
Light Bulb
Anti-theft apps

Add anti-theft apps like Prey and LockItTight to new devices when you get them. These apps help you track down your device if it’s lost or stolen. But they need to be on your device before it’s gone.

Missing package

Package theft isn't just frustrating—it feels like a violation of privacy. Fortunately, there are ways to fight back.

What to do next

There are plenty of tactics you can use to prevent theft and recover stolen packages. Here are a few you can try to recover your stolen package.

Best doorbell camera
  • Check again. Check every entrance of your home and spots the delivery driver could have left it, like the back porch, the hedges, the garage, or between the screen door and front door.
  • Contact the delivery company. Have your tracking number and order details at the ready. Then, ask about the company policy on stolen packages. If the theft was due to their mistake, they might be able to help you.
  • Contact the retailer. Get in touch with customer service and have your order and tracking number ready. The customer service rep can tell you the store or company policy on stolen items.
  • File a report. Report your missing package to the police and the Postal Inspection Service. The more agencies helping you track down your stolen package, the better.
Light Bulb
Pro tip

Consider getting a security camera or smart video doorbell to protect your front porch. Look for devices that send a live stream to your phone and have motion alerts, so you’re notified when something’s going on. The best cameras have an intercom feature that lets you talk to any suspicious characters on your doorstep.

Missing vehicle

Sometimes a lost car has been stolen, but more often, you’ve simply forgotten where you parked. Before reporting your vehicle as stolen, take these steps to locate your missing vehicle.

What to do next 

Just because you can’t find your car doesn’t mean it’s gone for good. Check out these tips to locate your ride.

  • Contact the parking lot company. If you’ve scoured the area and still can’t find your car, don’t assume it’s stolen just yet. The parking lot company or area tow company may have taken it. Call the owner of the parking lot or the tow company they use and ask about your car.

    If your car was stolen out of a garage, there may be parking attendants who saw what happened or know where to find footage.

  • Call the police. If your car wasn’t towed, it might have been stolen. It helps to know your vehicle identification number (VIN), license plate number, and where you saw it last.
  • Inform your insurance company. All those monthly premiums are finally going to pay off. If you have the proper coverage, your insurance company should compensate you for the loss of your vehicle.
  • Search for it online. Online resources like Stolen 911 and Stolen-Property store internet databases of theft reports. Both sites scour the internet for listings featuring items just like yours.

You might also find leads by searching for car parts. Many stolen vehicles get dissected and sold for parts. Automated systems can help you identify parts from your stolen car—but don’t contact the seller directly. Report your findings to the police and let them take it from there.

Light Bulb
Pro tip

Preventative measures like steering wheel locks can prevent your car from getting stolen. GPS vehicle trackers can also help find your vehicle when it’s missing (even if you forgot where you parked).

Missing keys

Keys can show up in the weirdest places. If you’ve lost your house or car keys, use these tricks to recover them.

What to do next

Best for lost keys

You aren’t getting far without your keys. Take a breath and try these tips to find them.

  • Look in strange places. Keys seem to end up in locations that defy logic. After you’ve exhausted the usual suspects like your purse or pockets, start checking out the weird places like couch cushions and laundry piles.
  • Call for backup. If you’ve given spare keys to loved ones, now’s the time to get help. If your missing key is for your car, the dealer might be able to help with a replacement.
  • Change the locks. Sadly, if your keys are lost or stolen, you’ll need to change your locks. The process can eat up some time and money, but it keeps your home and loved ones safe.
Light Bulb
Pro tip

If you tend to lose your keys, try a device like a Tile fob. This little gadget attaches to anything (including keys). The app shows the fob’s location and sounds an alarm to help you find it.

Smart locks are a solution that nearly eliminates keys. They’re easy to install and use methods like numeric keypads or fingerprint scanners to let you into your house.

Use the tips here to keep better track of your keys, but if you do end up locked out of your car or home, use our step-by-step guide to get back inside.

Nobody wants to lose their valuables or fall victim to theft, but if it happens to you, you aren’t powerless. Remember to take precautions by watching your items, keeping your digital information safe, and having a plan in mind before the theft happens.

Missing Social Security card

You may not use your Social Security card often, but when you need it, it’s usually for something important. If you’ve lost your Social Security card, you can request a replacement through the Social Security office online.

Unfortunately, some states don’t allow a replacement card request online. In these states, you’ll need to apply through the mail:

  • Minnesota
  • New Hampshire
  • Nevada
  • Oklahoma
  • West Virginia

When searching for information about Social Security or other government IDs, be sure to use trusted sources such as government websites. Don’t be fooled by scammers posing as government agents who could swipe your Social Security Number.


It depends on the circumstances around your lost item. If the police find your missing car, laptop, or other valuables, they may keep it as evidence against the thief, or you could get it back. It depends on how you reported it stolen and who found it.

Burglars and thieves usually steal valuables to turn a profit. Pawn shops are the most common places to recover stolen items. Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace are also common places to sell stolen goods.

Many thieves are smart enough to know not to sell in the area they stole items from. Use a resource like Stolen 911 to check national listings for your stolen items.

Yes, but only if you know that the goods are stolen. Possession of stolen goods is considered a misdemeanor or felony depending on the items and circumstances involved.2

Again, it depends on the circumstances around the theft. If your stolen item was used to commit another crime, it might be held as evidence. For things like bikes, laptops, or smartphones, file a police report, and law enforcement will notify you if they find the item.

Unfortunately, recovering your stolen items is up to you. While filing a police report can help, it won’t guarantee the safe return of your valuables. Thankfully, sources like Stolen-Property connect you to online listings to help make your search easier.

Start by taking pictures of any damage to your car and the contents inside. Share a list of missing items with the police for the police report.

Next, contact your insurance provider. Depending on your policy, they might be able to help with any damage. But unfortunately, there aren’t many policies that cover the contents of your car.

Sadly, only about a quarter of stolen items are recovered.3 That said, you should still file a police report. These reports can help get your property replaced, and they also ensure that the police can contact you if they find your items.

    I invested thousands of dollars from my retirement money to buy Bitcoin last year april when Bitcoin was bullish and all disappeared from my wallet after HODL . i sent loads of mails to the company and they couldn’t help me.

    I was angry, depressed sick and hospitalized for weeks…I had to recover my lost Bitcoin from those fraudsters and after along time of searching i was introduced to a tech through an old friend who also lost her Bitcoins, she said hes an expert in Bitcoin recovery so i got his mail and sent him my sad story he replied within minutes and asked asked for my Bitcoin details…

    long story short, i got all my lost bitcoins back within days with interest… Engineer smith was God sent, he changed my perspective about technology…He kept in touch during the recovery stages and assured me of positive outcome and at last i smiled again after recovering all my lost bitcoin with % increase.

    Last year December I was contacted by a broker who convinced me to invest into Cryptoallday. I made an initial investment of € 190,00 and they asked for € 14,500 more in order to access my withdrawal. I followed their instructions and made another deposit. For 2 months now I have been trying to contact Cryptoallday but I got no response. I talked to my friends and colleagues about it and luckily for me a friend of mine just got out of a situation like that and introduced to a wealth recovery team that helped her during her investment problem, within 3 days of contacting them they were able to help me get 100% of my lost money back. They only got paid after the recovery and I had no problem with giving them 10% from the recovered funds after I got it back. You can reach out to them for more insight.

I read an article on here as regards a recovery expert and genius so I reached out and to my surprise I got all bitcoins recovered within 12 hours.

    Please beware there are many fake bitcoin mining/clouding out there, I have been a victim once but now a certified blockchain consultant and I know better. The whole plan was so smooth I could not doubt it. Bitcoin is actually a great investment option but one thing I discovered over time is that it is not possible to mine bitcoin so don’t be deceived. I invested $25000 on a particular website called eurekaminingblock, I monitored the profit yielding but was told to open a new blockchain account to receive my payout. A public wallet was imported into the account and I was made to believe that was my profit. The bitcoin was labelled non spendable and it took me 2 years to be able to access it without the knowledge of the company. The non spendable bitcoin is the scam out there now and a lot of people are falling victim of it. I found Mr Charles Robinson on Quora who helped me access my investment together with the profit without the knowledge of the company. You can reach out to him also on cryptoreceoveryexperts @ gmail . com if you need help, he is genius. Goodluck!

    Can the victims get their money back? Yes. If you have been the victim of an unregulated binary options scam or any scam at all then you are 100% eligible according to the law to recover what was stolen from you. With the right approach and evidence of the fraud you were a victim of, you can recover your money. Those behind the binary options scam want to sell the idea that what happened to you was an ‘unfortunate investment’ when in reality what happened to you was theft via elaborate means. If you were the victim or know a family member or friend who was a victim of binary options fraud, you should speak to a financial fraud recovery expert – it is not too late to recover your money.

    This is my honest experience. There are a lot of untrue recommendations but because i haven’t worked with all of them i can’t tell you not to trust all of them. I won’t be the one to alter someone’s livelihood. If you have lost money to scam anytime at all, there is a solution. Send a mail to this recovery team (support@ corecrypto. tech) to get the peace of mind you deserve.


    It is possible to recover what you lost to scam brokers but most people don’t know this because they are either not informed or they have been conned by a recovery expert. Truth is there are only a few people who can pull this off and I was lucky to meet with one of them.

    The cryptocurrency market, unlike any other market in the world, is very volatile. And investors that are involved in the market have, at one point or the other, faced large losses. The reason for the losses can be and are of multifold. However, in essence, they are all the same; money is lost.

    In the cryptocurrency market in specific, the reason can be anything from technology shortcomings to general speculation caused volatility. One of the major reasons for the loss in the cryptocurrency market especially is lack of discipline or blatant overconfidence.

    Irrespective of the reason, getting over losing a lot of money is a whole different ball-game. It can be one of the most challenging times in the life of a trader and sometimes have catastrophic consequences.

    Slow Down

    You’ve just lost a large amount of your trading capital in a bad trade. You’re reeling from the aftereffects and you want to make enough money through your investments to equalize your loss.

    While this is a very emotional time, it is important for you to remain calm. Yes you have lost a part of your investment and yes you have lost money, but that is all the more reason to slow down. Control your impulses at this time, don’t make rash and hasty trades because you may just end up worsening your situation.

    Remember that every trader has bad days and everyone loses money in financial markets or cryptocurrency scams and it is okay, if not imperative, to stop trading at that point. Take account of your losses and make no more trades for the day.

    Slow down, cope and recuperate and also if you suspect anything fishy with your investment or your brokers then you can request for the service of a recovery company and the best so far is ACTIVE BONORUM

    ACTIVEBONORUM.COM is a legitimate recovery company that is registered and they also provide their license ID to the public to show legitimacy. They assist individuals and companies recoup their funds from fraudulent Investment platforms, ICO and Romance scams. As long as the fraud is done online, is up to the task of recovering the funds.

    Just last month I lost over 8 BTC to a Bitcoin investment scheme hoping to make profit but this turned out to be a scam. I was so devastated by this situation and needed my BTC recovered, luckily for me a friend introduced me to a genius hacker who helped me recover all my Bitcoins somehow in just a day.

    I googled a few recovery companies and after a few days of research I came across a crypto expert who introduced me to a programmer that helped me recover my lost coins. I was very skeptical as can be imagined but I’m glad to say my bitcoin was recovered and sent back to me after an hour. You should file a complaint directly to him at (M O N E Y R E C O V E R Y 0 0 1 @ S O L U T I O N 4 U .

    Hi, Guys! As a blogger, writing content about bitcoin is probably the best way to earn it. Also working as a freelancer and accepting only bitcoins is another great way. However this requires that your clients need to have bitcoins and are willing to pay using it. In today’s world it is rare to find high-paying clients in dollars, let alone in cryptocurrency. But I am of the mindset that if you actually want Bitcoin, you can find a lot of ways to do so, and still, make a big profit when you contact MR Hillian Qeen. Mining is the best and if you contact. (BITCOINMININGEXPERT11 AT G/M/A/I/L DOT COM), you can also achieve with a profit of $150,000 in a couple of weeks as a gain,Contact him and thank me later

    I was part of the members of airbon, I made a total investment of about $25, 000 in Bitcoin a year back and got scammed in the process, lost hope to the point where I actually considering taking my life. Met a Crypto IT company a while back ( and they’ve sent me a total of $12, 354 (they said I cakme to them a bit late and it’s also inclusive of their fees).

    Overall I just want to say to everyone here that has been scammed and lost hope that you shouldn’t be down, there are better days ahead. May the good God continue to abide with us.

I was worried and was browsing on the internet when i came across a ad on internet about BLACKJOCKER10x.
