The Michigan Department of Community Health will offer identity theft
protection to more than 4,000 current and former Michigan residents who
have been participating in a scientific study because an apparent theft
may have put personal information at risk.
A flash drive -- a portable storage device containing names, current
addresses, telephone, Social Security numbers and birth dates of the
people participating in the study -- has been missing from a secured floor
in an MDCH building since Aug. 4 and is presumed to have been stolen, MDCH
spokesman T.J. Bucholz said.
The missing data did not include any health information, medical records
or laboratory information.
