Report lost or found property
If you've lost or found property in a public place, we may be able to help. Answer the questions below to find the best thing to do next.
The item I found in a public place has a serial number
Please hand in to a police station or to a police officer or PCSO so that the owner can be traced or the item otherwise dealt with.
Items we can help with:
- mobile phones
- MP3 players
- any other equipment capable of containing data
- any other equipment with a serial number (apart from bicycles)
Most police forces can't help with found bicycles. You can check whether the bike has been reported stolen at www.bikeregister.com.
Some forces do have local schemes; if you've found a bicycle in Gloucestershire, do please take it to a police station.
