this week-end. We were driving & I filled it up and went to change it. The little bugger shot out and I can not find it anywhere in my car. We were on our way north & the only place we stopped was Sav a Lot in Houghton Lake. I just got off the phone with a lady there and no one has turned one in...

I'd bet it's still in your car. It's amazing to me how stuff dropped in a car can find its way into the tiniest crevice. I'd give it a thorough going-over with a vacuum cleaner before giving up on the card.

Oh no! I'm holding out hope that it's somewhere in your car still. I've lost things in my car before (one time too many!) and found them deep under a seat or in a crack or crevice by the doors. Also, did you check really deep down in the seats? Crossing fingers for you that it shows up!

Oh, trust me, we have looked so many times in the car, hoping it would turn up

I hope you find it! Look in places where you'd never think it would be. My dad had his glasses lens pop out while in my back seat one time. We looked everywhere and couldn't find it. About a month later I found it in a crazy crevice that I'd never think to look.

The only other thing is it was stuck on your body and fell out when you got out of your car. Otherwise it's in there!

Good luck!

Sending prayers you find it...

Don't give up! We thought my DD camera was lost (it would have fell out of the door)
when taking a long trip.

Well a few weeks later I looked in the car again. The side door in the window protector thingy and there was her camera! We took it out many times to look down in the door but it was tucked inside so tight it never came out.

Good luck!

Another "Never give up" story...I inherited my great-grandmother's engagement ring from 1904, and wore it quite frequently. Driving home from work one day, I looked at my hand, and the diamond was gone out of the ring. I tore the car apart, put a piece of nylon over the vacuum hose and vacuumed to within an inch of it's life....nothing. I was heartbroken. I did the same routine to my house and office, just in case it had fallen out there. No luck. Fast forward TWO MONTHS...I was sitting in my office, and happened to look down, and saw a sparkle on the floor. Yup. It was the diamond. I took it to the jeweler for confirmation that it really was the antique stone, and to be reset. How it suddenly appeared after so many people walking around my office, vacuuming is a mystery. I later gave the ring to my son, who used it to propose to my now daughter-in-law. She wears it every day.

It is probably in your car, and I hope you find it.

In the meantime, don't forget to check

Just in case!

Maybe it will turn up.
I once lost an earring in my car, sitting in the driver's seat.
It was found a year later under an interior trim piece when my car had to go to the bodyshop.

I hope you find it!

Don't ever give up! I lost a pearl out of one of my rings. I noticed it gone while in the car so I assumed it came out in the car. We searched everywhere in there for it. I finally gave up and wouldn't you know it, about 4 months or so later, I was sitting in the car and there it was! Not sure how it survived being on the floor all that time with all the feet and all the cleaning we did to try and find it, but it was there. We took it to the jewelers and they put it back in for me.
