Introducing MissingX, the ‘Pied Piper’ of lost and found for travellers


A fast-growing and highly successful business that seeks to help you find possessions you have lost whilst travelling around the world, has become one of the latest companies to be accredited by Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative.

Since launch in 2001, MissingX has matched more than 1.6million items against those that have been lost with a significant 57% return success rate.

Satisfied customers have recovered their possessions like iPads, mobile phones, jackets, necklaces and bags in as little time as just a couple of hours from places afar afield as California in the USA and Hanoi in Vietnam.

The world’s largest lost and found cloud-based platform, MissingX charges an annual commercial subscription whilst keeping the service free to police and members of the public to search, register, claim and report lost or found property.

Its commercial users include Bagport – Heathrow Airport, Bagport – Arlanda, Oslo, Avinor-Trondheim and Bergen as well as the two main airports serving Paris, amongst the community across the globe.

Rail companies in the UK include Great Western Railway, TransPennine Express, South Western Railway, First Group-UK, Abellio Group-UK and Heathrow Express. Hotels include Radisson Blu Group.

Describing itself as the ‘Pied Piper’ of the lost and found world, it has become the world’s first and largest online single search database, with millions of items of lost and found property.
