Most of the time, when you lose something it’s normally found in an obvious place after about five minutes of looking. However, every now and then, we all lose something and it is absolutely nowhere to be found.

When we do find it, it’s almost like a ghost has moved it somewhere completely random – like inside the oven or the bottom of your shoe. Here are the places you’re likely to have forgotten to check when something you’re looking for seems to have completely vanished off the face of the Earth:

1). Your car door.

2). The coffee shop you were just at.

3). In your coat pockets.

4). Inside your jean pockets.

5). Down the side of your sofa/chair/car seat.

6). Underneath a pile of papers you moved.

7). Under furniture.

8). Down the side of the bed.
