Cate Amery went to work on Friday, June 15 and was surprised when she opened her bag and found both her laptop and iPad were missing.
"As a graphic designer, they're basically my life. I mean all I do, everyday, is work on a computer," said Amery.
Cate then turned on the “Find my iPhone” application and sent out a message to return the items. Through this application she was able to pinpoint the location of the stolen electronics down to a nearby house. She got them back the same night.
"I don't use it [the application] regularly and I never really planned to use it, but it was one of those situations where I was better safe than sorry to have it on there [my devices],” said Amery.
