FBI Victim Assistance Services
The FBI and its partners are making every effort to connect individuals who attended the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival with belongings recovered at the venue following the incident on October 1, 2017.
We understand that some of these items may be very important to you. We have worked with a company to professionally clean, catalog, and photograph each item that was recovered and has yet to be associated and/or returned to the rightful owner. Due to the large volume of items left behind, this process has taken many months to complete.
At this time, the process of returning items has begun. Those individuals that reported lost items have been contacted via e-mail or letter. If you have not received communication from the FBI regarding your items left behind, please e-mail LVFestivalAssist@fbi.gov. Please see this map of the festival site, and if possible describe the area where you believe your items were lost and provide a description what you lost.
Please note that while the FBI collected numerous belongings found at the venue, we believe there are many others that were not recovered and are not in FBI possession. Lawn chairs, straw hats, and vendor giveaways will not be returned. In addition, perishable items including medications, cosmetics, and food items that cannot be properly cleaned will also not be returned. We apologize for any inconvenience.
We ask for your patience in the coming months as we process a large volume of claims. Once ownership is verified and items are ready for return, individuals will receive a notification about the process to have their items returned directly.
If you need additional information, please e-mail the FBI’s Victim Services Division at LVFestivalAssist@fbi.gov. Please note that this e-mail is for victims of the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival shooting only. This website should not be used to submit tips or leads. We appreciate your cooperation.
