What do you mean by "didn't log"? The same day, a few days, weeks?

Not everyone logs at the spot with a smartphone so you should give people some time to log.

If the cacher who dropped or retrieved the trackable hasn't logged it but logged caches afterwards they may have forgotten to log. You can always try contacting them and ask to log.

Did they log caches in the mean time? Have you contacted them?

Nothing more you can do.

Do you have the TB in your hand, but it came out of a cache where it wasn't logged into? In that case, "Grab from somewhere else", then edit your found log on the cache to "visit" the TB to the cache. That will put the TB in your possession and also preserve its travel history.

 

Did you drop off a TB somewhere, and someone took it, and it's no longer in the cache you dropped it into? There's nothing you can do about this, more than you've already done.

 

Please give more detail as to what your situation is. :)

Would you happen to be talking about the new person who Retrieved a trackable from your cache ? 

They logged Retrieved on the 18th.  Today's only the 22nd.

They logged a Discover on another trackable in that cache the same day.

 

Another cacher Retrieved a trackable from your cache on the 18th, but hasn't logged in a note or anything to the cache itself.

They already found your cache last month.   That it?     They didn't leave a note in your cache page...?

They did find caches afterwards and logged them in yesterday.

 

It's a nice idea and helpful, but not mandatory that a trackable's movement has to be mentioned in a cache log.

Trackable's belong to other people, and just passing through your cache...

Guess I don't see an issue there, where else are you talking about  ?  Thanks.

What I mean is that the person left the trackable without using the app to log it :)

I'll try again.

Please give all info needed to answer your question.

Is it your TB that was dropped and not logged? Did you find and retrieve a TB that wasn't dropped online by the previous cacher?

Q:  Is it your TB that was dropped and not logged?

A: No this is not my TB

 

Q:  Did you find and retrieve a TB that wasn't dropped online by the previous cacher?

A: I am unable to find the owner of it as the GC code is not logged on our cache page

Again.. not enough info.

 

Just guessing (again), a TB is dropped in your cache but not logged online?

 

Go to the trackable search page and enter the tracking code. You will then see who retrieved the TB last and also who the owner is.

You can then "grab" the TB and drop it in your cache.

If you take the TB with you then "retrieve" from your cache.
