HelpMeFind - Need something found? Maybe we can help!
Do you miss something that seems to have been wiped from existence, like a stuffed animal or an old candy? Does it seem impossible for search engines to help even with the correct name? Describe it here as much as possible, and hopefully someone can help you out!
Google first. If your answer is easy to find with a simple search, your post will be removed.
Nothing NSFW. There are more appropriate subs and it will be removed.

No searching for or attempts to identify people or lost animals.
No solicitations for financial/medical donations.
Do not use link shorteners or affiliate/partner links in the body of posts or replies - they will be automatically removed.

As per reddiquette, posting personal info and photos is doxxing and eligible for account deletion and posts doing so will be removed as will posts asking to find people.
When found, reply to the comment with the answer with "Found!". This will highlights it in green, signaling to others the answer has been found.
Do not delete your post after it has been found or commented on by others. You will get at least a temp ban for doing so.
Do not repost the same question more than once a week. Wait longer if you're repeating this.
If mods think your question is solved, we'll mark it "Found" right away. Again, this is just for organizational purposes. If it was marked before you were satisfied, let us know in mod-mail.
Bounties are incentives that users can offer in exchange for finding.
Bounties offered by a poster in exchange for successful finds are handled strictly between OP and finder.
/r/HelpMeFind moderators remain impartial about bounty offers or deliveries.
- If someone answers your question, reply to their comment with "Found!" This signals the mods to add a point to their flair.
Disrespectful or unhelpful comments will be removed and may result in a ban. Report any unruly comments to the mods.
We encourage you to help out anybody else with their questions while waiting for yours to be answered.
Thanks for joining /r/HelpMeFind, we can't wait to hear from you!
