From there, scroll down to the 3rd option: Submit a Missing Mail Search Request, and click the 'Start Your Missing Mail Search' button:

After you click that, USPS will ask you to log in to the USPS account you used to start that inquiry. Once you're logged in, you'll see the option to view Submitted Search Requests at the top of the page:

From there, you'll see all of your previous missing mail searches, and can click on the ID number for any of them to see more details about the case:

​​Clicking on a specific ID will bring you into that particular search itself, where USPS will provide all the nitty gritty details you need 😉

For In-Progress Missing Mail Search Requests

USPS has a few options for missing mail searches still in progress. This FAQ page goes over most of the basics.

They recommend calling 1-800-275-8777 (1-800-ASK-USPS) to ask for the phone number for your local Consumer Affairs office regarding a Missing Mail request. That said, their 1-800 number is pretty slow at the best of times, and during peak seasons (such as the holidays) it’s most likely swamped 🙈

USPS will also send out email notifications with status updates regarding your search 👍 Those will go to the email address that was provided in the “Whom can we contact about this search?” section on the search request form.
