DENVER (AP) The state of Colorado has notified nearly 19,000 current and former employees they have lost some of their sensitive information.
The Denver Post reports Monday that a device containing the employees' names, Social Security numbers and possibly addresses is missing.
The state says there's no indication the data has been misused or stolen. A state employee apparently lost a USB drive containing the information.
The employee lost the drive in late November. Officials initiated a search and when the device could not be found, they began the processing of identifying what information it contained in order to know which current and former employees needed to be notified. Once that happened, the letters went out last week.
