According to Wikipedia, lost and found, lost property, or lost articles is an office in a large public building or area where visitors can go to retrieve lost articles that may have been found by other visitors. I guess that�s what you can call Los Angeles lost and found. Most lost and found services are found at public areas and schools, and are marked with a sign that explains what to do and where to go to see if your property was found. Los Angeles lost and found focuses on items that have been lost, stolen or found on the beach or at surf spots. We report what the surf community tell us about their lost or stolen surfboards and other property, as well as make announcements when people tell us they have found a lost or stolen wetsuit or other property.
In many lost and found facilities, the offices will try to contact the owners of any lost items if there are any personal identifiers available. At Los Angeles lost and found, we do not provide that service, we only report what is communicated to us. San Diego lost and found does not receive or handle any property that is mentioned here.
