How To Find USPS Submitted Search Requests Lost Mail

If you recently submitted a USPS Missing Mail search request, you may find yourself lost trying to check the status of your request online. The actual missing mail search requests are a different website and not the same website you typically login to USPS with. Follow the steps below to find your USPS submitted search requests.

 

  1. First, login to the USPS website with the account you submitted your missing mail search request with.
 
Usps login page
 
  1. Next, go to https://missingmail.usps.com/#/history to find a list of all your missing mail search requests under Submitted Search Requests.
 
Usps missing mail submitted search requests
 
 
  1. You can click your Search ID requests to find the latest status on a missing search request item.
 
 
*UPDATE*  - After 3 months, we received an update from USPS that the package has still not been recovered. That’s a great, worthless update 3 months later! Example email we received is below.
 
 
Usps package not yet recovered email update
 
 

Let us know if this did or did not work for you. In addition, its unlikely your missing search request will go answered by USPS in the short term. Our request is going on the 3rd month now with no update. Please share your experience using the comment form below.

The "kiss of death" for delivery appears to be the Detroit Distribution Center. A lot of stuff going there gets lost for some odd reason. I can't help but wonder if those employees at that location are simply destroying mail and subverting packages to their own personal property. I actually had a "supervisor" tell me that since my pkg was small, it was likely underneath a larger pkg and I would simply have to wait until someone lifted the larger pkg and found the smaller one. When I asked how long the larger pkg could remain untouched, she said it could take months. Really? Pkgs are left to lie dormant and untouched for months without any attempt to move them out for delivery? Amazing!

Thank you so much for these instructions! I was finally able to stop the USPS emails telling me that they're still searching! Package showed up the day after I filed my missing mail claim, now I have been getting these emails forever, without any instructions in the email on how to cancel the claim.
