The chief supervisor,
Liverpool police station, UK.
I am Sherin Emma, a second-year student at The University of Liverpool and my major is Economics. I am writing to report a lost identification card that I was provided by my university authority.
I respectfully state that on 21st December, I went to the local stadium to enjoy a music concert and had been there from 4.00 pm to 7.00 pm. After I get back to my room, at around 7.40 in the evening, I could not find my University ID. I am positive that I had it with me even when I entered the stadium. I must have missed it during the concert.
I immediately notified the university dean and he suggested me to report it to the police station and have a copy of the report to apply for a new ID card. I waited two days in hope that someone might find it and return it to the university but this did not happen. Now I would like you to officially record it so that I can collect a copy and apply for a new one. The ID has my name - Sherin Emma and number LUA-45874E, inscribed on it and the valid until 30th November 2020.
I would be much obliged if you kindly register my lost ID case and provide me with a copy of that to help me get a new ID card.
