Through the hustle and bustle of holiday travel, it's not uncommon for passengers to accidentally leave behind personal items at airport security checkpoints. If you lost an item, don’t panic! The Transportation Security Administration's Lost and Found Program helps travelers track down their belongings.
TSA shared photos Thursday of what some passengers are leaving behind at Washington Dulles International Airport. From winter coats to mink fur pieces, the lost and found resembles a thrift store. There are also costly items such as laptops, unopened iPhones and other electronics waiting to be reclaimed.
Lost items are held by TSA for a minimum of 30 days. They can be picked up at Dulles or mailed back at the rightful owner's expense.
Items are tagged with the checkpoint, time and date of when they were found and are neatly stored in labeled containers.
If you left an item at a Dulles TSA checkpoint, contact the airport's TSA Lost and Found Office by calling 703-662-2234 or filling out an online form here.
