Lance: "Hey Vic. Is Louise still in the hospital?"
Vic: "Yeah, but she'll be getting out soon."
Lance: "That's good. Look, we got a big deal coming down today and I'm gonna need you there."
Vic: "Wait a minute. Why are you asking about Louise?"
Lance: "Take it easy. It's just that...Umm...Martínez called and said that he's gonna pay her a visit and I don't think he means to take her some fruit...But look, the hospital's got security, so she'll be fine!"

— Lance informs Victor of Jerry Martinez's threatening phone call

Lost and Found is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories given to protagonist Victor Vance by his brother Lance from his apartment in Ocean Beach, Vice City.


Vic drops by Lance's apartment. Lance informs him that Jerry Martinez is threatening to kidnap Louise again as soon as she gets out of the hospital. Heeding this warning, Vic drives to the hospital in Downtown and picks up Louise from the hospital. When he arrives, Vic and Louise apologise to each other and Vic suggests they do something fun together. At that moment, however, he receives a message from Lance who says he's trapped in a burning building and wants Vic to bring a helicopter. Louise then informs Vic of a helicopter on the hospital's roof.

Vic and Louise take the Air Ambulance and Vic flies over to Ocean Beach where Lance is seen in a roof up in flames. Lance says that he has been attacked by Martinez's goons who took his money and wants to get them back as the Martinez goons are escaping in boats. Vic flies over the boats as Lance from the chopper fires and kills all the goons. Afterwards, he jumps on the boat with his money and leaves while Vic takes Louise back to her sister's apartment in Little Havana.

Mission Objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to the Downtown Hospital to pick up Louise.
  • Take Louise to the helicopter.

  • Take Louise home.

Instructional Messages
