Need help locating a mysteriously vanished package
October 13, 2013 11:29 PM Subscribe
I ordered a package last winter and just realized that I never received it. I was out of town for a bit and traveling so it slipped my mind and I just assumed my partner had brought it in. Now, over six months later, I contacted the company that shipped it to me, and they were able to track down the USPS routing number, but USPS' website is not helping. How can I track this down?

This was sent in January 2013. I have the USPS routing number (RT__________, I can PM it to you if you want) but the USPS tracking system can't find an item by that number. They do have an option to search for held packages based on delivery date and other criteria, but the date doesn't go back to January (when I submit the form with an older date, the site errors out).
Is there any hope for ever finding my package? Or even figuring out what happened to it? USPS claims they left a notice, but I definitely never got one.
