Strollers, phones and keys are the most common items at the Rodeo lost and found.

Hundreds of thousands of fans visited the rodeo this year.

Some of them may have left something behind and it might be waiting for them in the lost and found.

The rodeo has a room full of items just waiting to be claimed by their owners.

There are dozens of strollers and hundreds of keys and cell phones.

What are the most unusual items? Single shoes! We're not talking about the whole pair, just one shoe.

A surprising number of people lose expensive items they just purchased from a rodeo vendor.

"These items, no matter how small they are or how big they are, people want them or they wouldn't have them. So we want them to have them back. It's heartbreaking to send things back upstairs. Last year, we had a keychain from a veteran from the Vietnam War. And that one makes me want to cry," said Dru Pease, Rodeo Chair of Directions and Assistance.

If you lost something, rodeo officials say you still have a week after the rodeo ends to claim it.

Most items will then be donated and any cash found will go to a scholarship fund.
