Lost my drone the 13/06/2022 on Benagil cave in Portugal. It is a Mavic Pro Platinum (M1X), Serial 08QCG69P1257U1.

Last know location is in the cave (37.087214, -8.423768). It fell from the hole on the top of the cave on the sand inside the cave. I asked someone to put on the rock inside the cave.
The time to go down to take a boat and go to the cave someone had taken it away... I asked the various rental companies and restaurants but no one brought the device back...

In view of the last image filmed by the drone (a wave🌊) the device has taken on water... I would still like to find it! 🥲

If you found it please send me a message 🙏 !!
Thanks in advance,
Alex

Have you tried the police? In the UK most people would, hopefully, tend to hand such things (lost property) into the police, I do not know if that is the custom in Portugal.

Unfortunately no... you're right, it was something that I should have done, even if I really doubt that the person who took the drone did it with a good intention.. Anyway, now I'm returned to France... My message above was a bottle in the water with the serial number in case of someone honest "find/buy" it 🙂

Sounds to me like the drone might have been swept away by the water than taken by someone.
Who did you ask to put it on a rock ?
