jtown: Why didn't she report her missing surfboard in the first place? Not saying she should have been thinking about heading off a search and rescue operation but it seems like the most obvious thing to do because it would significantly increase her chances of getting the board back if it was ever found.


Because the ocean is a really, really big place? And who would she report it to? I doubt the Coast Guard runs a lost and found for the ocean.

You really can't wrap your head around the concept? Go to the local police department and file a report. It's likely to wash up close to where it was lost. If it does, they'll know who to contact. It costs nothing and might result in the recovery of an expensive item. It's really not that absurd, despite what you seem to think.


So we are required to do the same for lost bicycle since there may be a child missing?

Think of the children!
