Found a geocash by accident thinking it was trash.  Before disposing of it found the log sheet inside.  What should I do?

Thank you for going to the trouble to track down this forum! The link Touchstone supplied assumes you know something about the cache. Sometimes caches don't have a lot of identifying information inside. Since you've obviously found the Geocaching.com website, you can use the search feature together with the map to figure out which geocaches were in the area where you found the one you removed. If it's obvious which cache you have, then the link Touchstone supplied will let you contact the owner. If there are a few geocaches close by and you are having trouble figuring out which one you took, it might help if you supplied the possible  caches in the vicinity and a description or picture of what you found to this forum. The community can probably help you narrow it down (or you could message all the possible owners and include a picture ...)

I'm impressed with your thoughtfulness, thank you for taking the time and effort to do this and not just junk  the cache.

To solve this puzzle of which cache it may be ( I like puzzles !) it would first be useful  to know where you found the container: this is an international forum so please narrow it down a bit for us !

Country/area for a start. Geocaches are found using GPS co-ordinates, (you probably don't have the sort of quirky and specialised knowledge about those that we sometimes take for granted here ) An approximate street address, park name  or area name may be enough if it was suburban.

If not, and we are out in the wilds somewhere , you could try this :google the place name, select 'maps' , zoom in as needed and select the spot you want, and click on it. A box will pop up with some co-ordinates in blue, click on them and a box appears on the left with the co-ords in white on blue. You can copy and paste them to a message here. Those are not the format of co-ordinates we usually use , but they would help us track it down. Alternatively do a screen shot of the map to show the marker you placed.

A second set of clues to track it down would be if you could post a photo of the signatures on the log sheet, and briefly describe the container (plastic clip box, metal can, painted,  taped , approximate size )
