Stolen engagement ring at Madrid Airport - help!

Jump to last reply

Two days ago my engagement ring was lost or stolen going through the departure security gate in Terminal 1. I had put my ring in a tray along with some other stuff. After going through the scanner I picked up the tray and my went suitcase and took it to a table nearby; I then took my things out of the tray, picked up my suitcase and took it to a nearby seat where I put my things in my bag and zipped it up. Realised I didn't have my ring, went back to table/tray but no ring there; searched through suitcase but not there either.

I tried talking to security officials, information, lost property, Guardia Civil, Police etc but noone really cared or helped thoroughly search for my ring. Police told me to call to make a denuncia but I see online that violent force must be involved in a robbery, not where the thief is unknown.

There was a security camera above the table where my tray was, and I really want airport staff/police to review this. I know that a civilian may have stolen it, but due to the especial unhelpfulness of security staff, I have reason to suspect that one of the stole it.

It is very valuable, both monetarily and sentimentally.

Does anyone have any advice for what I can do, people I can talk to who will LISTEN?
