IELTS Writing: Letter-Lost my bag

Write a letter to the cinema manager to inform him/her that you have lost your bag in the cinema. In your letter you should:

Tell exactly what happened and when.
Explain where you think you left the bag.
Ask the manager to help find your bag.

Dear Sir/Madam

Last night my friend and I attended the late show of Homefront, the Jason Statham movie, in auditorium number 4 at the cinema complex. Unfortunately, I think I left my bag behind when I left.

I placed it on the floor, under the seat, during the movie and forgot to pick it up before leaving.

I wonder if you could tell me if any of your staff or anyone else has handed it in. I tried ringing the reception of the cinema but they couldn’t help me, they didn’t know anything about it and they suggested I should contact you, so I am writing to see if you could help locate my bag so that I may collect it from you.

Let me describe it for you: it’s black, made of leather and has two pockets or pouches on the outside. The maker is Diesel and it looks like a small backpack.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter, and I look forward to your reply.

Yours faithfully,
