Hi there welcome to just answer hope i can be of some assistance to your problem

The only way you will do this is to have your ford dealer use the diagnostic machine to clear all keys from the vehicle as this is the only way to it and then recode the keys but you will need a minimum of two keys to recode the system so if you only have one then you will need to buy another however if you do recode the system and then somebody does find the keys they will not be able to start the vehicle but they will still be able to unlock the vehicle with the key and get into it so if you are really worried about it then a new lock set code be the way to go.

Kind Regards

Neil
