    If you believe it's safe I would go looking for it with the find my iPhone app. Make sure you lock it with the number to reach you.

    You should definitely call the police--if you try to track the culprits yourselves, you have no idea what situation you may walk into. For your own safety, call the police. No phone is worth putting yourselves in harm's way!

    Call the police and have them meet you there for safety. I'm sure you have tried calling the phone with no answer. Make sure you lock it at this point. Do not wipe just yet.

    Definitely call the police. A teen in my hometown got shot recently when he went to find his stolen iPhone on his own. He didn't survive. Better to stay safe.

    My friend is calling the police. Grrrr. But how cool we got to find it so easy. I did a search for my stuff and all of them are within 50 feet from me. My iPhone appears on the street.

    Thank you guys for being there. :*

    Let us know how this turns out. I assume (and hope) all is good?

    My friend called the police here in Miami and they said they can not do anything, just to fill the report for the insurance. I just came from the movies from watching Tom Cruise. I'll know more tomorrow since he works with me.

    Maybe he should send a message to his phone offering a reward.

    I'm sure the police have more pressing items to prioritize than searching for a iPhone that wasn't stolen. It's up to you to recover it. I'm from Miami BTW.
