Thanks everyone. I am very lucky to be able to recover the charger this time.

Thanks for the tip Don. I just finished programming the remote. Now it makes a beep sound when the doors lock.

YES. Lucky I did not put my parents' house information inside the car. After making a police report, I immediately went to the house and reset the garage opener. They were out of the country too.

You can get equivalent units off eBay for ~$200 -- not necessarily the same, but portable level 1 EVSEs, anyway.
I was prepared to buy a LV1 Panasonic charger from Ebay for $200. I just wanted to find out how much it cost to get it from the dealer.

Glad you recovered the EVSE--i was thinking to check pawn shops to find it, but your story ended well...
I was prepared to search local craiglist and pawn shops to see if my charger pops up. Again, I am so lucky not having to pay $200 for a replacement.

By now, I'm sure y'all know the trick of keeping the Mitsu EVSE from walking away while charging
Don, I have surveillance cameras in front of our house. I also use 4 good locks to lock the portable LV2 EVSEs when I am charging outside of the house
