The Transportation Security Administration tracks all passenger complaints of missing valuables — personal items that disappear from checked baggage, or at a TSA security checkpoint.
"20/20," with the help of the National Institute for Computer-Assisted Reporting, looked at almost 45,000 complaints where passengers claim to be missing valuable items — from Rolex watches, to cameras, to diamond earrings, to laptops and more.
"20/20" and NICAR analyzed all the passenger theft and loss complaints filed with TSA from January 2003 through April 2006 — the most recent data available. TSA did not provide a final disposition on these passenger claims. CLICK HERE TO CHECK YOUR OWN AIRPORT and find out what valuables were reported missing from luggage.
