  • Location: Mexico D.F., Mexico.
  • Date Lost: May 19th, 2013.
  • Date Recovered: April 4th, 2015.
  • Theft: Stolen from my car.
  • Missing items: MacBook.
  • Time it took for first report to arrive: 10 months.
  • Once received, time it took for police to recover it: Never.
  • Final thoughts: Surprised.

Full story below:

My MacBook was stolen from my car. Ten months later, the first report arrived. I tried to recover it with Police assistance, but there isn't any official procedure for this kind of theft in my country. Probably, the long time that my laptop had been missing, affected their willing to take real care of the problem. Until then, I knew a little bit about my laptop's situation because of the reports. Two kids were spending time on YouTube and Facebook. Three months passed, and suddenly I stopped getting the reports.

On 22 March, 2015, the reports started arriving again, but at this time, my MacBook was somewhere else and in someone else's hands.

On 4 April, the local Police helped me to seek it extraofficially, and now I can't believe I finally have it back.

Prey is such an amazing app. Thank you, guys!
