LAX Lost & Found

Who We Are:

Header image

The LAX Lost and Found is managed by the Airport Police Division. The mission of the Airport Police Lost and Found Unit is to reunite the public with lost items left in public areas such as baggage claim, gate areas, and airport parking lots. The Lost and Found Unit does not manage nor collect lost items left in TSA areas, or on aircraft. A claim must be submitted to inquire about a lost item, at no cost to the public. A claim is a method of inquiry, and it is not a police report. We do not charge a service fee, nor are we affiliated with third party websites that help search for lost items.

We receive lost items from various areas of the airport. To inquire about a lost item in the areas listed in the box below, click on the box. For all other lost and found inquiries, see the list below for contact information.
