missing keys yesterday, missing keys today

i couldn't find the keys to unlock the back gates yesterday. turns out someone left it in their pocket. but i had to search their room and the bathroom to find the shorts they had it in. today we couldn't open the sliding gate to the sliding glass doors. but this was just a small padlock so i wondered if i could use a paper clip. i couldn't find one, but saw an old rusting pair of metal folding scissors with pointed blades. inserting and twisting the left blade didn't work, and i briefly wondered if we have a bolt cutter. good thing the right blade unlocked it! as i opened the gate, screen, then glass, i saw the key in the space between the gate and screen. i'm glad the keychain is much, much bigger than the key, so i noticed it immediately. now i know where else to check if the key is missing again. what do you do when you can't find the keys? have you ever found a missing item in an unlikely place?

It depends on the keys. But if I lost one, I would have lost all of them as they are all on one keychain. And that is what I have done several times . . . the last time was when it was in my jacket pocket (the one that I was wearing) and I thought I lost them .
@Jessabuma you really should since you're supposed to be the caretaker, you're in charge of security and safety. you should be aware of everyone who comes and goes. you're the point person there that your aunt trusts the most. tell your aunt about this plan/this change, then tell her that if those people react the next time they're there, you will tell them it was your aunt's orders for tighter security and safety.
@hereandthere Another option would be to have one master key which would be able to open all other door knobs at home. I was told by the keymaker that they only need to add one slot for the other knobs that would make it be opened by the master key aside from the specific key to that particular knob.
