Lost in Milan Italy
« on: July 31, 2013, 05:47:19 PM »
I know this is a long shot but I read Trustee From The Toolroom.

Just heard from my son via facebook chat. He and his girlfriend have lost their i.d., cash, wallets, passports in Milan Italy.
Have advised him to get to consulate, contact police, cancel card  etc etc
Any Milano beeks here?
Prayers appreciated.
Will update as we learn more.

if they are american

if they are canadian

depending on where they are, one or the other may be able to help them anyway with getting the right contacts and connections to help.

i'm sure they know to call whatever bank issued the cards and any other cards in their wallets.  that's not the best place to get stranded, but at least it's not hostile.

A more optimistic scenario tonight. The niece of an Italian acquaintancew (a fellow dog walker who loves my honey) handed my boy 300 euros under an archway in downtown Milan this aft. Emergency travel docs issued by Canadian consulate. Now to successfully navigate a flight home.

Success! Picked him up at Pearson International in Toronto Saturday morning. A very intense 10 days to say the least.

Is that the theme music from "Mission Impossible" playing in the background?
