Uber's Annual 'Lost and Found' Index Is Here—and Someone's Missing a Pizza Castle

According to the report, riders also left behind meat, boxes of yams, whisky, and deli cheese last year, among other items.

Each year, Uber releases a “Lost & Found Index” that chronicles things riders have left behind, from the most commonly forgot items (phones, wallets, and keys) to the “most unique” lost items, such as a Game of Thrones wallet, sriracha high socks, and Swarovski binoculars. The company also keeps track of lost food items, too—for example, last year’s index listed a crab steamer and a large popcorn maker as missing. While the 2020 edition didn’t include any unusual appliances and tools, there were definitely a few notable entries, such as a “white, pizza filled castle” and a foot-long beer tap handle with "Hoboken" on it.
