We find // 543 million is a lot. Did you know that just within Europe no less than 2.4 million keys are lost each year? Or that the Brits lose the incredible number of 4,500,000 mobile phones every year? And that during the two hours of a European Cup football game, on average 200 items are forgotten or lost somewhere in the stadium?

what he thought was the right place, but the owner unfortunately does not know anything about it. The fact that there is such a large number of objects which have not been collected speaks volumes... Why is there not one single, big and secure lost property office, where found, lost or forgotten items can be reported easily?

An estimated 543 million items are lost in Western Europe each year, most of which are found by honest people. Then they often disappear somewhere close to the spot where they were found or in a lost property office. Because it just takes too long for the lost or found item to be reported.

A co-ordinated, networked database of these offices is not even on the cards. This situation is the same in most countries.

night stays each year, face further problems as far as recovering lost items is concerned: Neither found property notifications nor online services are available in foreign languages and there is no possibility of an international search or administration in border regions. For instance, a Japanese tourist who has lost his wallet in Britain will probably face a fair few problems trying to get it back...

Besides the official lost property offices, there are separate lost property offices in railway stations, various transport service offices, countless lost property offices in public institutions, football stadiums, universities, shopping centres, mountain railways, offices, sports centres and so on... And as people generally tend not to know where exactly something has been lost or forgotten, trying to recover it can become a nightmare.

Wouldn’t it be much easier if there was one smart online platform on which every honest finder and every public or private lost property office could publish all found items easily and quickly? A virtual lost property office which is open around the clock, can be used in lots of languages and rapidly brings together people who have lost something with those who have found it?

Besides the missing co-ordination and cooperation as well as the bureaucratic hurdles, international tourists in Britain for example, who account for no less than 192 million over-
