Keyless go - Misplaced key

So we've misplaced one car key (Ford Keyless Go). From Googling it seems that it emits a 433.92MHz (europe) signal with a 20 meter radius.

So with this in mind, surely there must exist equipment that can figure out where in the house -a- (I understand that it can give false positives on other peoples car keys) key is?

It's RFID if I understand it correctly. So you may need to get pretty close to induce a signal.

Here are some on Alibaba.

Ah, thanks!

But at that price I'd rather just buy a new key from Ford :)

You could push your car thru the hallways, rooms and up the stairs while pushing the start button to help you locate your key. I am sure as soon as you buy a replacement the lost key will magically appear.
