iLost is an online platform for found property. In other words, iLost is the place where finders can publish their found items and people who lost something can search for their lost belongings.
A lot of organisations use iLost to publish their found items, however, not all organisations do. Whenever you can't find your lost item on iLost and you suspect it was found by an organisation that does NOT use iLost, you can create an iLost Alert. This is basically a notification of your loss, which you send to a non affiliated organisation, where you suspect you might have lost your item. The organization receiving your notification will respond to you by email.
You can also use an iLost Alert to create a notification of your loss on social media. Click here to create an iLost Alert.
