  • Lost and Found FAQ
    What is the process for claiming babies and baby bottles?
    If you have lost babies and baby bottles, visit the Lost and Found office as these items are too numerous and non-descriptive to determine ownership without visual confirmation. During business hours, babies and baby bottle bins are available for customers to search through. Do not complete a Lost and Found form for these items.
