BOYNTON BEACH, FL ( —  Boynton Beach Police used solid detective work — and the “find my iPhone” app — to track down the iPad that a boy living with Autism uses to communicate.
Six year old Aaron, according to police, accidentally left the iPad in a shopping cart somewhere in West Palm Beach. Boynton Police tracked down the iPad by using iCloud. Officers knocked on the door of the house where it was located and was told by the resident that he “found” it. Facing uniformed, armed officers, the person who “found” the iPad apparently turned it over to police without incident.
No charges have been filed.
Aaron uses the iPad as a means of communication.
