In Lost and Found columns of newspaper or school or college notice board, we should economize our writing. But it should not be at the cost of relevant details. While writing this type of advertisement, we should keep in mind the following points:
1.Mention the place, day, date and time where you have lost or found any article.
2.Provide all the relevant particulars of the article.
3.Do not forget to mention the contact address for the delivery.
4.Do try to ask for some specific particulars of the lost or found article.
5.If you desire to provide any incentive, mention it clearly.
Lost! Lost! Lost!
