  1. I am a Canadian who was visiting Prague & renting an Air B&B flat Hlavni mesto Praha. When I departed June 24th for the airport with Uber, somehow my black carry on case was left behind on the sidewalk of this place. A contact of mine in Prague (owner of the flat, Jan Pohl) contacted the Police station & apparently some honest kind soul turned it in. But unfortunately the Police will not release it to him without authorization from me.. the owner. The Police say it will be transferred to Lost & Found Dept. Can someone please reply to me how I can go about retrieving my carry on?? How can it be released to my contact, Jan Pohl? Would much appreciate hearing back on this. Thank you!!
