Because they are small and portable, pagers can easily become lost, in some unseen or forgotten location, possibly close at hand. They can also be stolen, or kept when found, rather than returned. In some cases this may be due to inability to locate the rightful owner. In other cases, the relative ease of reprogramming the pager may tempt the "finder" to avoid any attempt to return the pager. A method of facilitating return of lost pagers is described here. Additionally, use of pagers to facilitate the recovery of other "lost" items is discussed.
