Reward for a passport lost in Chiang Mai

Today we lost a dark brown small backpack having a logo of company Zhermack with all documents and personal belongings, including a passport, ipad and money. The backpack was lost in a red cab around 11 am. Please contact us on thai phone number 08 7481 5592, or in Veerachai Court, Taphae Road 19, Soi 2, room 1413. We shall give a reward to the person who returns is to us.

Thank you for your response. We have already reported everything to the police in Chiang Mai. The consulate does not work today and we still hope that someone might have found it, because we originally planned a trip to Laos tommorow.

You can ask your hotel to contact the taxi company. Many left/lost items were recovered via this route. Also a local radio station may be willing to broadcast the loss.

Embassies do have a duty officer during holidays, You may want to look up their emergency no.

Passport, credit cards, ID card, driver's licence, money and iPad recovered!!!

Can you imagine our happiness yesterday evening when I received a phone call from a young Thai man telling me that he had all our lost things? I have to share this amazing story with people on this forum, which was the last straw after we had informed every possible institution about the loss. It turned out that one young man had found our backpack in the red cab and was trying to find us in Chiang Mai together with some of his friends, one of whome speaks English perfectlly, since he is a student in Canada with a scholarhip from the Royal Thai Government. He actually opened my mailbox on ipad and read the mail from Trip Aadvisor with the address and my phone number. Two young Thai men and women came to our hotel to return our possessions, and were very reluctant to receive the reward we had offered. We had hoped thay we might recover the passport, and as one of the readers on this forum wrote, we had forgotten about the money and the ipad, and this was beyond all our hopes and expectations.

This is wonderful news I am so happy for you! I was thinking of your predicament all day and had doubts about the return. What thoughtful people to return it all to you. Enjoy the rest of your trip.
