Lost Item Hopefulness

Back from a fun trip to Chi-LAX on the Chief, and got back to Chicago on Thursday. Almost perfect on my part save leaving a binder of discs in the roomette when it slipped between seat and outside wall. I've been talking with the Chicago Lost and Found guy who's been great, but the binder hasn't turned up or been turned in. By now, however, there's a chance that it had turned up and gotten to LAX's lost and found. Is it likely that Chicago let LAX know to look for it too, or should I call them myself to ask? Anyone have the right number to call there, or should I gamble on the 800 number? (I've had great experience dealing with reservations and policy, not so lucky with the odd requests bests handled by local people...)

Sorry, no Chief userpic....

Lost and Found #
Could you please provide me with the number of the lost and found at Chicago's Union Station. I have been trying for nearly a week with no success. When I went there this past Monday I was told the lost and found was closed as they "called in sick". I left something of considerable value on a train last Friday and trying to see if it was turned in. Thank you!

I left papers and documents in the pouch of the seat in front of me .
This was on on AmTrak from Holland Michigan to Chicago. I have tried to phone and talk to a live person but that seems impossible. Drivers License, Social Security card. etc.!!


I can be reached at 224-430-0128 or if found mail to 736 N. Western Ave, #204 Lake Forest, IL 60045

Another lost item
Here's another story. I apparently left a folder of research files at Union Station, Chicago, June 3. I was working outside the Metro Deli and apparently I didn't take it with me. It's a plastic file folder with a flap and two elastic strings on the bottom corners to hold it closed. It's a long shot, but . . .

I lost a shoe ....... of all things!!!
I need locating a black sand silver sketcher shape up tennis shoe size 8 1/2. I think it may have fallen out of my suitcase at Amtrak Union Station on either May 31st or the early morning of June 1st 2012. I just found this website and that's why I'm just now inquiring about it.
