iPad owner receives bizarre pics taken on missing tablet

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A North Little Rock businessman is attempting to track down his stolen iPad using photos taken by the woman who has his device.

A series of self portraits are among the numerous photos streaming onto Allen Engstram's iPhone.

After losing his iPad on a flight from Phoenix to Denver, he feared he'd never see the expensive tablet again.

Until, Engstram said, his son Mason got an interesting picture on his Apple device.

"He said mommy, who's this? And of course she said, I have no idea who that is. It showed up on my phone too," explained Engstram. "After a while we figured out what was going on. That's the person that has my iPad."

Engstram said the photo stream between his Apple devices and the one missing are leaving behind a trail of evidence.
