A laptop computer containing personal information on more than half a
million New York state workers has been found after it disappeared May 9
from the offices of a third-party data management company.

In a statement today, the company -- Chicago-based CS Stars -- said the
laptop belonging to the New York Special Funds Conservation Committee "has
been found and secured."

Al Modugno, a spokesman for CS Stars, said he was notified today of the
laptop's recovery, though he would not comment further on whether it had
been lost or stolen, adding that the incident is still being probed by law
enforcement authorities.

"That's part of what the FBI is still investigating," Modugno said. "I can't
really give you any more detail on that."
