If you have something that needs to be found, St. Anthony is probably the saint you want on your side.

Known for his miracles, the Santo Niño de Atocha (or St. Anthony of Padua, as he’s known in the United States) is the patron saint of finding lost items. Many people (including people in the Pittsburgh area) pray to St. Anthony when they lose an item or even when they need help finding a missing person.
