Italian term or phrase: mi sono persa le chiavi di casa
Policewoman is attacked by a gang. She tells the officer who comes to her aid: mi sono persa le chiavi.
Does this mean: I lost my keys to the house? That doesn't seem to make sense.

I lost my keys to the house
Explanation:
makes sense to me, had a car accident and strange as it may seem i was worrying about my keys, my friend was worrying about his flute which was at the back of the car. i'm not a psychologist but after a shock, you try to reassure yourself, if she lost her keys (they embody security) she feels a bit more insecure
seems to make no sense but our life is made of such acts we don't understand but a professional can see these links
just a weird idea
hope it helps

I have lost my house keys


Explanation:
I can't tell if this makes sense or not, because you have not provided us with enough context.
What kind of text is this? What's the situation?

Ciao
