Lost and found

Have you lost an item, or did you find something, for example keys, a wallet or a mobile phone? Then you can report this on the website www.verlorenofgevonden.nl. There you can register lost property and retrieve lost items.

Did you find something?

Then you do not have to bring it to the municipality. You simply report it to www.verlorenofgevonden.nl. Your personal data are only visible to the municipality that manages the administration. Keep the found object at home and make sure it stays in the same condition as when you found it.

If the owner finds the object on the same website, he will receive your contact details via that website and he will contact you. Does the owner of the item not contact you? Then it becomes your property after the legal storage period of 1 year.

Deliver it at the Stadswinkel

If you do not prefer to store the object you have found yourself, hand it in at the Stadswinkel (Frans Joseph van Thielpark 1, Helmond). The opening hours are on Monday: 12.00 - 19.00 and Tuesday - Friday: 9.00 - 16.00. 

Please be aware that due to measurements taken to limit the impact of the coronavirus, opening hours of the Stadswinkel are limited. Until further notice, the opening hours are:

At this time, appointments can only be made to:

We urge you to postpone your appointment in case you are showing health complaints that can be linked to the coronavirus (for instance: nose colds, coughing or fever)
