Green card help please

My boyfriend has permanent residence status in u.s. And he's from New Zealand originally. He got his green card 10 years ago and was trying to renew it since its expiring. He went to the office for the appointment to renew his green card but they wanted his green card but he realized today he lost it. He has a copy of it, A passport, and a liscence. But I'm wondering what will happen if he goes in for his appointment tommorow and doesn't have his green card like they asked. Since he's renewing it and has a copy of it will they still let him renew it??

I can't find anything on the Internet and I really hope he won't get deported. Any answers asap will help so much!
