    That's deep.

    I hope it manages to filter through to the police, or better still, make sure you cancel it ASAP.

    whats a high commision office? okay ill report to the police tomorrow.
    probably the home office. thats the term used in the passport, so i just quoted it to you. go to direct gov online and look at their advice. just follow it through.

    OMG some people do not realise the value and importance of a passport, seriously contact them and report it lost, although they may quizz you on why you left it this long , but be honest. it aint like a driving license. if someone enter on your passport, for ill means, you are screwed
    Do I still need to report it missing if the passport had already expired? I should have really reported it earlier but didn't realise I lost it for quite a while, and then hoped it would turn up somewhere in the house but after quite a few major searches nothing has surfaced :/

    yes you probs should to be on the safe side, expired passports have the top corner cut at a 45 degrees angle. as for the where you lost it, just say somewhere outside other than your house.
