Assunto:  How would you shorten this sentence?
 
Mensagem:  I took a good look at the following sentence. I regarded it a bit lengthy.

"Ron felt the stirrings of incipient panic as he riffled through the file and realized that someone had removed the letter."

I gave rewording it one single try. Like this:

"Ron began to panic as he realized that someone had removed the letter from the file."

Can you write it shorter, better etc?
