I cannot find the page to find the info for the form to inquire about lost books at the USPS.  Help?

From the Help Center:

As the sender, you should call 800-ASK-USPS or go to http://postalinspectors.uspis.gov/forms/MLNtRcvd.aspx (the Postal Inspection Service's website) and input the information online there . This will help USPS try to recover your book if it truly has been lost in the mail.

  • This form at USPS is titled "Mail Theft"
  • This does  not mean only theft of mail.  USPS categorizes any mail that does not arrive or that is tampered with as "mail theft".
  • The choice that should be made under "Class" if Media Mail was used is "Parcel Post"

Thanks!  I was searching all over the USPS site, I didn't even think about the help docs here.  :O)
