Meat pie, spiders and a toupee: Uber dishes on weird things left behind in rides this year

Uber's annual Lost & Found Index reveals popular and surprising items left behind by riders. Here are some of the most unique finds reported to the rideshare company.

Losing your belongings on the go can be irritating – especially if they’re valuable or sentimental.

Uber drivers are accustomed to items being left behind in their rides, some more unique than others.

The rideshare’s eighth annual Lost & Found Index, released on Wednesday, surveyed drivers for the most common and surprising possessions left in cars by their passengers.
