    Oh thank goodness! You've found my lost ipad. What a kind soul to find it for me. Please take my iPad to the food court in the mall and place it in the trash can next to the Orange Julius. You know the one. #:D

    Honestly, you are a fantastic person trying to track down the owner. If the police and apple doesn't know what to do then I don't know if there is anything you could do. If you posted something like you did on Craig's list or near where you found it you will get a bunch of fake claimers. Is there anything on the iPad that could be identifiable like apps or something. That way if you have a claimer they would have to confirm which apps are on the device.
     
  3. Well ,you sir must be an amazing person, tracking that far the owner of the iPad is surely impressive, send the e-mail to the one who was logged but also check the contacts if that fails you can find atleast someone that knows the owner.
    Good Luck finding the owner!

    Where did you find it? Maybe if you found it nearby a cashier, security or whoever works in the immediate area, the owner may have came back and asked those guys if they seen anybody pick it up? So maybe follow up with someone there?

    Is there a Facebook app or any other social media app on it? Use their sign in (if possible) and message them that you have the iPad.

    Just my 2c

    Good luck!

    You seem to have done everything that you can to find the owner. If contacting the owner by email doesn't work I'd say you should feel perfectly fine in keeping it. You went above and beyond what I feel most people would have done in your situation.

    Good for you, and good for the owners. Nice to see that people can both try and return things and the owners can appreciate the efforts made to reunite them with their property.

    Kudos to you for doing the right thing! Shows good things come to good people who do so! They got their device back and you scored some serious karma points! You should give yourself a nice pat on the back and feel good about what you did! Maybe some day you'll be lucky if you end up being on the other end of something and someone else is honest enough to do the same thing you did here! Good uplifting story, man!:D

    Nice, shows what being a nice person can bring :D

    You returned something that probably had more sentimental value (kids present) than retail, and got a ice reward!

    here's to more uplifting stories in 2015 :D

    Good man! And for everyone else, if you haven't turned on "Find my iPhone / iPad" and added contact details to display on the lock screen, do it!!
