The good thing about losing an item in an Uber (if you can call anything about losing your phone good) is even if you don’t know or can’t remember your driver’s name or the name of the taxi company — Uber remembers for you.

First, navigate to Uber.com/lost. You can access this from a computer or a friend’s smartphone, but you’ll need to log in to your own account to contact your driver.

Select the correct ride from the drop-down as shown :

Scroll down and enter the phone number you would like to be contacted at. Tap submit

If you lost another item, such as your keys or wallet and still have access to your phone, you can access this feature from the Uber app directly from the “Help” section.

Tap on "I lost an item"

Tap "Contact my driver about a lost item"

And provide your preferred contact number and hit Submit 
And if you Choose "Can't reach ..." option then fill out these details and hit Submit
