We found the phone! After dumping out every drawer AGAIN tonight, it just struck me like a lightning bolt to check the glove compartment in the car. There it was! I have no idea what the logic was behind that, but the teenager has his phone back. He’ll be happy about that for a while . . . until he remembers that it doesn’t have any service right now.
I wonder if I can hold out on the phonelessness for one more day.
