Hey, all. I have an issue regarding a paper U.S. savings bond that was given to me nearly 30 years ago on my first birthday by relatives (a married couple). I remember having the bond in my possession as a young child, because I can picture it in my mind. I kept it filed away in a file folder contained in a filing box in my childhood bedroom. A few years ago, after realizing that the bond had been lost, I contacted the Bureau of the Public Debt to obtain a replacement. They searched their databases with my name and Social Security number and had no results. I then contacted the relatives who purchased it for me, and they contacted the representative at the bureau. The rep searched the databases using both their names and Socials, but those searches came up with nothing also.None of our names have changed, and our Social Security numbers obviously have never changed. I don't understand why there is no record of this savings bond on file. I remember the bond, and I know the married couple who purchased it for me. What could be the explanation for why there is no record? And does anyone have any ideas as to how I could somehow replace the savings bond?
