What would you suggest? The first thing would be to report it to the police....which I hate having to do. No one likes dealing with cops but it's a cover your ass thing in case something does go wrong.
Anything else I should know/do?
There is a bit of a difference between lost and stolen. It depends where you are but most cops that no one likes dealing with will not take a report on a lost one. If it is stolen then you are most likely missing other property. Check the back of your check books. See if any of the rear checks have been removed. Credit card statements, ect. It is not worth just stealing your birth certificate.
You may be able to just call your local police department and make the report over the phone. That way you would not have to deal with them in person.
