The item I lost in a public place is worth less than £500 or can't be directly identified as mine

Unfortunately, we don’t accept these kinds of items if someone tries to hand them in.

This includes luggage, empty purses, empty wallets or low-value, unidentifiable items such as umbrellas, glasses or perishable goods.

Try searching the location where you lost the item and ask any nearby shops or cafes if someone has found it and left it with them.
