Lost and Found

​​​​​​​Did you lose an item ​​at the airport?

  • If you lost an item on an aircraft, in a rental car, or an item that was checked in on a ticketed flight, please contact the airline or rental car company directly.  The Lost and Found Office does not accept these items.
  • If you lost an item in any public area in the Airport, including the security checkpoints and shuttle buses, please fill out a lost claim form here: https://LostandFoundReport.com/fortlauderdaleairport
  • Due to the high volume of calls to the Lost and Found Office, we recommend filling out the lost claim form. If your lost item matches with an item that is turned in to the Lost and Found Office, we will contact you.​
  • Items lost at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) security checkpoints or in the U.S. Customs & Border Protection ​(CBP) area are typically turned over to the Lost and Found Office by TSA and CBP the next business day. For example, an item lost at a security checkpoint on a Friday will be turned over by TSA/CBP to the Lost and Found Office on Monday. 


Regular Lost and Found Office hours are 8:30 AM-Noon and 1-4 PM, Monday through Friday. Lost and Found Office Number: 954-359-2247, ext. 3.​


The Lost and Found Office is located in the Rental Car Center on Level 2 across from the Enterprise Rental Car counter next to the elevators.
