Sadly I think the other guys are right, it's unlikely you'll ever see it again.
I know exactly how you feel - I've just had my second one thieved recently in just under 18 months. Simply no trace of either of them (well someone tried to log into my Facebook account from my iPod Touch 3rd gen in Ecuador), both now completely irretrievable. I use(d) an iPod almost as a smartphone because it saved me spending £££'s on an iPhone with a contract, it was perfect; but now I've got around £500 worth of iPods missing I can't yet bring myself to replace it especially with the jobs situation in the UK and the whole lack of money thing.
Sod's law. I've decided that if there was a god of sorts he/she would definitely hate me.
