Stolen Laptop with Vet Data Recovered

A laptop stolen in May that contained data and social security numbers of some 26 million plus armed forces veterans and active duty personnel has been recovered, the FBI disclosed Thursday. The agency also said there was no evidence that data on the laptop had been accessed. To date, there have been no reports of identity theft stemming from the incident, and the FBI has no suspects in custody.

"The protection of the sensitive data, and well being of those potentially affected, has made this investigation a number one priority for the investigating agencies," the agency's Baltimore office said in a statement. "A thorough forensic examination is underway, and the results will be shared as soon as possible. The investigation is ongoing."
