2. Let Your Neighbors Know

Although this may seem odd, it is extremely helpful to inform your close neighbors that you are looking for your keys. By telling your neighbor the situation they might be able keep an eye on your property or car if you lost your key. Close neighbors could prevent strangers from entering your home by being an extra set of eyes watching over your home. If you do not have close neighbors it might be better to skip this step.
