I thought I was just missing one necklace, then I went to wear a ring and found that 3 are missing and also another necklace. It may have been a visitor who came for dinner. Do I confront them or not say anything and let it go???

Did that person come as a guest with anyone else? Because if so, you could mention it to the person and you could find out. If not, and you want the items back, you may have to go over and visit that person to confront him/her. But I would not go alone. No matter how much you think you know this person. Sorry your stuff got taken. It is a huge violation. I hope you do gets your things back.

The person did come with someone else. Thanks for your consolation. I doubt I will ever get the stuff back, but maybe they needed the stuff more that I did.

Well, how many people did you have over for Thanksgiving? Is it obvious who it could have been? I would ask, by any chance did you see so and so??? Then, they may confess, if not just never invite them over.

It is obvious, but this person is only seen once or twice a year and it has been rumored they are stealing from other people, but nothing can be proved.

That's why I felt so sick about it and wondered how to handle it. Nothing like this has ever happened in this situation before.

How horrible to invite someone over and feed them, and then the person steals from you! I thin you should confront them, but do it in such as way that is non-threatening if at all possible. That is very sad and I'm sorry that happened to you.

It is terrible when you can't trust family and friends. We had a similar situation with my daughter. We always had things coming up missing. We confronted her, she was very defensive and hurt we would even think she would do such a thing. One day, before they came over we put things in places we knew where they were and before they went home, we took a quick inventory. Things were missing. We confronted her, she was so mad, emptied her purse, dumped her coat pockets. We explained that it was there before they got there and it is now gone. She grabbed her boyfriend, started going through his pockets, not thinking she would find anything, but she was wrong. She took it all and gave it to us and apologized, but not before she kicked his but right out the door. She broke up with him right then. They had been together for 2 yrs.. She said she could not be with someone who would steal, especially from her parents.
