Lost/stolen iPad at airport
So I’m in a weird predicament. Last Sunday I was coming from a flight from Atlanta and landed at JFK (my home airport). Unlike myself, I accidentally left my WiFi-only iPad in the back pocket of the seat in front of me. Of course I notice this as I arrive home. The first thing I did was to check the find my app. Luckily (at the time), the new iOS let’s your iPad ping location from other people’s devices through an encrypted connection. The app said it was at the terminal that I arrived at. So I put in a claim with Delta (the airline I was using) and hoped for the best. A few days went by and I get a message from delta that they cannot find my iPad. A little strange considering I can still see my iPad at the terminal. So I decided to go there and asked the terminal lost and found, delta baggage services, and baggage services on the departure floor, and they said that they didn’t see it.
Fast forward to yesterday, I see that iPad has moved. However it looked like it went to a UPS nearby JFK. I tried calling the UPS store but they said they were close an hour before the iPad even came.
Now to today: I see that my iPad is at a UPS in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania! So my question is, what do I do from here? Do I wait until my iPad meets it’s final destination? Or do I call the police where the UPS is where my iPad is right now. Any help would be appreciated!
UPDATE: I contacted the UPS in PA and they said that there is no way they can find the package without a tracking number. So frustrating that you know exactly where your iPad is but there is nothing you can do about it. I will keep everyone updated once there are any new developments.
UPDATE2: So I followed the general consensus and I filed a report with my local police about the matter. Not sure what they’ll be able to do but I at least I tried. As of right now my iPad is still on the move as now it made its way down to North Carolina. Once again, I appreciate all the feedback and will keep on updating.
