Expo's lost and found center stays open

UMBRELLAS, cameras, mobile phones, Moutai liquor and skateboards are among the 8,386 lost items to be claimed by visitors to the six-month World Expo. The event organizer today opened a new lost and found center at 588 Madang Road, next to the Expo site.

Qian Bojin, director of the Expo Visitors Service Center, said the center aims to hand back all the lost items to their owners.

The lost and found center has kept all the personal belongings that volunteers or visitors picked up at the Expo venues in case the owners still needed them. During the Expo, there was a lost and found center in each zone.

There were lots of forgotten umbrellas. The Moutai liquor, a famous Chinese brand, and skateboards, which were not allowed into the site, were bought by visitors in the pavilions and were lost by their owners, Qian said.

The center also received a bicycle which should belong to an Expo employee because visitors were not allowed to ride in the site.

Among the more valuable items are single-lens reflex cameras. Card cameras and mobile phones were the most common lost stuffs, Qian said.

About 2,000 owners had got their stuffs back as of yesterday. Many foreigners also recovered their passports and other documents.

The new center is open daily from 9am to 6pm until December 31. After that, the Expo organizer will place lost-and-found information on the Internet. Owners can call 021-58742500 or 021-58742502 and provide their ID card or passport numbers. The organizer will send the items to them, said Qian.

People can also dial 962010 the Expo hotline. English service is available.
