“Hats, gloves, belts, toiletries, cell phones, keys, sunglasses, prescription glasses and more,” TSA spokesperson Lisa Farbstein said.
The influx of stray belongings spikes over the holidays and, because TSA only hangs onto these items for 30 days, they want to get the word out that your missing items could be in the agency’s lost-and-found.
“TSA officers who work here get a great amount of satisfaction when they can return items to people, especially something that is meaningful but might not have a high dollar value, something like a child stuffed animal,” Farbstein said.READ MORE: 3 Men Receive Life Sentences In Trio Of Baltimore Shootings
The state takes custody of these items after the 30-day period elapses, unless TSA has made contact with the owner.MORE NEWS: Jury Selected For Trial Of Man Charged With Murdering Dante Barksdale
