There were other important documents in the leather bag it was in. I live in Florida & law enforcement claims this is a civil matter & can do nothing for me. The US STate Department says it is a crime involving either identity theft or trafficking in Identity theft and that the State can & should work on my behalf to investigate.
If I report it stolen, it becomes invalid & I need apply for a new one at a cost of $$$$ and as long as a month. I have an airplane ticket for Italy for next week. I desperately need my passport back. Any suggestions???
Google "Lost or Stolen Emergency Passport Replacement". You didn't indicate where in FL, you're from, but you should be able to find a location where you can get a replacement Passport the same day. Make sure to keep your new Passport in a safe place! Good luck.
