Announcing found items in the musjid

Q: We know to announce in the masjid if a item is lost is not permissible.

What about announcing in the masjid if a item is found to inform the people present that may be unaware of the loss? Is it permissible?

A: Place the announcement on the musjid board that is placed out of the musjid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
