“Dear PoPville,

Two weeks ago I lost my phone. While picking my 10 month old daughter up from daycare, I put my phone on the roof of my car to place her in her car seat. I didn’t realize that I had left it there and that it had flown off until I got home and I’m crushed.

If it was just my phone, it wouldn’t matter that much to me but all of the pictures and video (Thanksgiving, Christmas, her crawling) that I’ve taken of my daughter, from November to now – 7 seven months of her life – were on that phone and they were not backed up. Shame on me for that, I know. I’m hoping that one of your readers can help me locate the phone.

For the days after I lost it, it couldn’t be located. I’m thinking the battery died. This week it was located in two different places:
5157 Fort Totten St. NE, earlier this week and
1060 Quebec Pl NW, today.

The phone is an iPhone 6. It has a case on it. The case is a picture of my daughter in a pile of leaves.

Please, if someone has found this phone, please return it. Your gesture will be rewarded.

I can be reached at [email protected]

Thanks so much,
Mary Lou aka Mom who lost her phone”
