You need top go to U.S. Embassy and apply for a "returning resident visa." This would help to show that you did not intend to abandon your Permanent Resident Status. Then while in the U.S.A, you can apply for renewal of your cards.

Best wishes,

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.

You have to go to the Embassy first to obtain returning resident visa. Then once in the U.S.A., you can apply for a replacement Green Card with USCIS.
