epiclollipop tells us more.
Just an extra bit of info: I was with my parents at the airport, so I did make it back... after 45 minutes of going through security and announcing that I was an idiot on the intercom so my dad could save me.

Can't you ask one of the workers there if they can help you out? I'm sure there's something they can do to fix this, it's probably happened before :/ good luck!
My only concern is that here in the US (I've never traveled outside the country, so I'm not too familiar on the logistics) if you leave any baggage of any type unattended, it's suspicious. While it was their ID, ticket & phone the same rules may apply. The TSA has some weird/strict rules and OP probably got a horrible interrogation from this. I hope they got it straightened out smoothly.
Surely they couldn't say no if you explained your situation? Hope everything worked out, OP!
Where exactly did you leave all your items? You didn't have your ID in your wallet or pocket? You left your carry on unattended? Sorry, but you did it yourself.
