Car Keys Lost In/On West River


While tubing Monday 6/16, discovered their absence about halfway between the Dummerston Covered bridge and the remnants of the old railroad bridge (near the Irving station on Route 30).  2 car keys (for upstream and downstream cars) were double-bagged together inside 2 ziplok bags.  

If you're swimming or kayaking in this area or downstream and see something floating (or underwater) please grab them and reply to this article...replacement keys are expensive these days, so waterlogged or not, there'll be a reward!  Don't divulge details of exactly what you found in your reply, though, save that for private followup for identification.

No sign?

I assume they haven't floated up to the surface?

I lost keys in the West River a couple of years ago. Not fun. It caused me to do some extensive walking back and forth to get my other pair. At first I didn't know where they had gone, so I retraced numerous steps. When it finally sank in that they had sunk, I went for my other set.

I would imagine that there are many, many keys out there. Perhaps the fish can start an aquatic locksmithing business.
