Bellevue's T-Mobile USA Inc. on Wednesday confirmed reports that a laptop
computer containing the Social Security number, salary, birth date and
home address for as many as 43,000 current and former employees
disappeared from an employee's checked luggage.

A company spokesman couldn't say Wednesday when the presumed theft
occurred, but he speculated it took place sometime after Aug. 23.

He based his speculation on the fact that the laptop contained data on
people employed at T-Mobile between May 25 and that date.
