Steps to Take When You Can’t Find Your Car Keys

Step 1: Search the Area

It’s important to maintain a calm composure during your search for the car keys. Try retracing your steps as well as you can from the last moment you remember having them. If you can, recruit a friend to help you look. Sometimes a second set of eyes makes all the difference! 

The bottom line? You want to make sure your keys are actually lost, not just misplaced. 

Step 2: Search in Your Vehicle

So you retraced your steps and had help from a friend to search and you still didn’t find them. All hope is not lost! Many times, keys can end up locked inside the vehicle itself. Peek through those windows and if this ends up being the case, you’re in luck!
