Until further notice, only essential items will be accepted by the Lost and Found office. Examples of essential items include government issued IDs, passports, baggage, jewelry, medication, medical devices, high-end electronics, and legal documents. Any other items accepted or released will be at management’s discretion. Items will only be returned to customers via FedEx six times weekly at the expense of the property owner. Essential items found in the airport terminals, curbside areas, parking lots or airport operated shuttles are stored securely for 90 days before disposition. Non-critical items are donated to Goodwill after thirty days.

We do not take custody of items lost onboard aircraft, in for-hire vehicles such as taxis and door-to-door shuttles, in public buses, or in rental cars. For items lost onboard an aircraft, please contact your airline. The Lost and Found office does not store food items. All food items are disposed of upon receipt.
