HAPPY to say that Southwest has reunited me with my iPad! Learned some important lessons as another user said. Keep your seriel number and don’t put electronics in the seat pockets. Thank you a Southwest !

I'm so happy to read your comments about your found iPad.  This gives me hope.  My iPad was found in Alabama near Scottsboro using the "Find my iPhone app" and I called the local authorities and they gave me the phone number to the airlines lost and found warehouse 256.999.0980.  I left a message on their voicemail reciting my Southwest Lost and Found report ID number.  I'm waiting for them to call me and I also added my iPad serial number to the lost and found record.  Although I have not yet been contacted by Southwest Lost and Found I'm so hopeful and I'm looking forward to being reunited with my iPad.  Thank you for your posts it has been very helpful.

Thanks so much for this post. My IPAD showed up in Scottsboro, Alabama too. I looked up that address and it looked like a stripmall on Google so I gave up hope of ever recovering my IPAD. When I saw your post saying that location is some kind of lost and found warehouse I had hope again.  I called the number and left a message. Today I received notification that my item was found! Thanks so much for all the details.

Update:  After filling out the online report with Southwest, it took 10 days to hear that it had been found. I called the phone number 256-999-0980, after 9 days and on day 10 I received an email that my item was located. I don’t know if calling and leaving a message helped or not, but it made me feel better, ha, ha!

Congrats on geting your stuff back.

 

The system does work most, but not all, of the time.

 

One needs to be patient, which is a hard thing to do.

@JH829, I totally agree with you! Always have the box with serial number. I know how the others feels when they lose their precious items that they lost. With the serial number they should of get it back soon. Glad you did it! Cheers!
