      No. But there is a time limit to prosecute.

        Of course, if you try and report it after seven years, the cops will probably just laugh at you, or investigate you for filing a false police report. Who reports a lost passport 7 years after it was lost?

          Only if some one wants to perpetrate fraud.

            Identity theft or a requirement in some countries to reapply for a passport.

                This person is perpetrating the fraud. Her bf's passport is withheld by immigration authorities and she wants to bypass the system by fraudulently filing a false police report.

                  There is no time limit to file a police report. One of the requirements for re-issue of lost passport in some countries is a police report. So if you are from one of those countries that require police report, file it. Police have too much work to do than investigation you.

                    well, if one requests the passport from immigration and immigration doesnt respond, then one can file a police report that states exactly that

                      No police agency in the U.S. will give you a report for a lost passport. They will only take a complaint on a stolen item. And they certianly will not 7 years after the event. The police neither document or investigate lost items, except those turned in, nor do they investigate or document crimes where the statute of limitations has run. Lost passports need to be reported to the Embassy/Consulate of the issuing country.

                          Yes. If USCIS does does not return it to you and have not provided an explaination that the passport is lost, you can then file the police report. The police will forward that report to the inspector general of Homeland Security to see what happened.

                          Once you have the police report, you can then go to your embassy and request for a new passport.

                          Note: if you have a letter from USCIS that states they are no longer in possession of the passport or cannot find it, then you will need to use that letter to apply for a new passport.

                            This is not true Federale. Police agencies do and will investigate lost or stolen items, especially if it involves another federal or state agency. What the OP must do is go in there and state that the agency has taken their passport and now refuses to give it back to them. This, by legal definition, is stealing because the agency has refused to give any notification on the request.
