Lost property

Report My Loss is a website which allows members of the public to report lost property quickly and easily without the need to telephone or visit a local police station.

Your lost item will be added to a police-approved, national database that can be viewed by police nationally and matched against found items from across the country.

Once you have completed the online form (which you can update or edit at any time), you will receive a lost property reference number which can be used for your insurance claim, should you choose to make one, and in the event of the item being recovered the owner will be notified of its whereabouts for collection.

About Report My Loss

Report My Loss allows you to print a numbered ownership certificate, confirming the details of the loss. They do charge a fee for this service.

Details of losses reported via this method is made available to Police forces across the UK.

This ensures the best chance of being reunited with your property.

This information is already available to insurance companies and service providers using NMPR™ and Bike Register system, which makes any further loss report unnecessary.

If you think you have lost your property in a public place/premises or on public transport, such as

  • Licensed premises (pubs, bars, nightclubs)
  • Private premises (house, hotel, hostel)
  • Business premises (restaurants, shops, supermarkets, offices, entertainment venues)
  • Educational premises (schools, universities, colleges)
  • Public transport (trains, buses, trams)
  • Taxis (including Private Hire vehicles)
  • Airport

You should make direct contact as they often operate their own lost and found property service and are better placed to deal with your enquiry.
