LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Do you recognize this woman? A traveler from Arkansas says she has his missing iPad.
Allen Engstrom said he was flying from Phoenix to Denver when he left his iPad on a plane.
"I realized it pretty quick, but by then it was too late and I just kind of wrote it off," Engstrom said.
About a month later, Engstrom said his wife and son were at the doctor's office when his son held up his iPod and said, "Mommy, what's this?"
It was a picture of a woman on his iPod.
"We finally figured out that must be the new owner of my iPad," Engstrom said.
Engstrom says the woman is taking "selfies" -- or self portraits -- with the iPad.
She probably has no idea that her pictures are backing up to my iPhone, Engstrom said.
So far, he's received more than a dozen photos.
"The wonderful person who snaked my iPad continues to take glamour shots of herself apparently unaware that they are backing up to my iPhone," Engstrom wrote on Facebook. "So naturally I'm blasting them out to the entire world. Enjoy!"
Engstrom, who lives in Little Rock, said the tracking settings like "Find my iPad" and "Photo locator" are turned off, so he can't find the woman.
"All I have is her image and the power of social media to help me get my iPad back," Engstrom said.
