For all the criticism that Uber gets, there’s no denying the taxi app has made life a hell of a lot easier for many of us.

We’ve all probably been guilty at some point or another, of leaving something valuable behind in a taxi. Wallet, phone, keys – it can be incredibly annoying.

It turns out people leave much stranger things after their taxi journeys though.

Uber released its annual Lost & Found Index this week. It’s formed from data gathered when a rider reports a lost item through the app.


The 10 most commonly forgotten items are pretty ordinary: phones, cameras, wallets, keys, purses/backpack, clothes, glasses, headphones, e-cigs and IDs.

However a few of the more obscure items included an 8-week-old coffee-coloured Chihuahua, a full $18k set of gold teeth and one Gucci flip-flop.

“Over the last year we have seen millions of people across the world ride with Uber, which means a variety of items get left behind,” Dan Brubaker, Uber’s Lost Items lead, told CNN in a statement. “While lost phones, wallets, and keys come as no surprise, we were delighted to help return some of the quirkier objects – like a handmade cat puppet and a Lego championship wrestling belt – that reflect the uniqueness of our riders.”
