That missing Army laptop containing personal information on about 800 or 
900 soldiers? Nevermind.

Tumwater police told our sister paper, The Olympian, on Friday morning 
that they had recovered it last Saturday or Sunday, and that it was 
returned at some point Thursday to "the owner" - not sure yet whether 
that means the Army or the Army personnel staffer who left it in his 
unlocked truck at home in Lacey. By Friday, it was in Fort Lewis. 

Tumwater police said it did not appear that any data had been accessed. 
Fort Lewis officials confirmed that, saying that the computer and 
external hard drive were examined by computer forensics experts.

"The robbers apparently tried to access the laptop, but were 
unsuccessful, and the external hard drive containing the soldiers. 
information had not been accessed since the last time that it had been 
used by the Fort Lewis employee," according to a statement from Joseph 
Piek, a post spokesman.
