Sometimes "lost" is a relative term.
A while back I was waiting on a gasket so I could finish up my clutch job. I 
had one shipped from a dealer in Oregon. (where I bought the car)
It never showed up and I ended up having to overnight another one - all at my 
expense - to get the job done as I was leaving on a trip. When my normally 
reliable UPS guy showed up again I asked him what happened. He turned a little 
pale and went over to the neighbors house - who happened to be out of town - 
and retrieved my package from their front porch.

Have you checked with your neighbors? You may get lucky.
