Super Bowl fans forget items at Newark Airport

Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) - Super Bowl 48 fans may have finally returned home following a fierce winter storm the day after the big game, but many left behind items ranging from belts to jewelry and electronics at security checkpoints at Newark-Liberty International Airport.

Other items include a passport and a United Airlines pilot's hat.  Even a diamond ring was left behind by a traveler.

Authorities say that in the past month alone, people have left behind hundreds of laptops, iPads, watches and phones at security.

Transportation and Security Administration officials are trying to get the word out to anyone who traveled through the airport. If you think you left something at the airport, you should contact the TSA.

Approximately 80,000 people attended Super Bowl 48 at MetLife Stadium to watch the Seattle Seahawks defeat the Denver Broncos and many of them left through Newark's airport.

If the items are not claimed in 30 days, they get shipped to a TSA warehouse in Virginia where laptops and other electronic devices have their storage drives erases.  Other items get shipped to a warehouse in Pennsylvania where items are eventually auctioned off.

Officials say the best way to find out if you're lost item is at the TSA Lost and Found Office is to call 908-787-0667 or visit TSA.gov and search "lost and found."
