JOPLIN, Mo - In the days following the Joplin tornado, numerous people reported finding personal documents and photos scattered by the fierce winds. Now the Joplin Police Department is trying to help victims recover those priceless items lost in the storm.
The Joplin Police Department has been so busy recovering from the tornado they hadn't yet got around to reuniting owners with their lost and found items; so they've put up a website to help the process along.
If you'd like to look at the list and see if you have some lost and found property, you can go to the city's website; www.joplinmo.org, and click on the link 'Lost and Found Property Listing'; or just click here.
This list is just people who had some sort of identifying record among the items found so they knew who it belonged to; like a drivers license or passport. If your name is on the list; or if you think you might have some lost and found property at the Joplin Police Department and your name is not on the list, you can contact Rick Beck with the Joplin Police Department at (417) 623-3131, ext. 450.
