    WSB TV: Hundreds of complaints filed with TSA over lost items at Hartfield

    Channel 2 Action News has obtained documents that show passengers at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport report losing all kinds of valuables. Channel 2's Scott MacFarlane found those items total about $250,000 in value. MacFarlane obtained a federal database that reveals 416 complaints filed with the Transportation Security Administration by Atlanta passengers between 2011 and 2012 claiming valuables were lost or damaged in their luggage.

    ...

    Passengers reported $300,000 in property lost or damaged in Atlanta. TSA cut about $35,000 in reimbursement checks. The agency has an online claims process and MacFarlane was told it has investigators on staff to review receipts, talk to witnesses and review the claims. But the numbers indicate if your stuff gets lost in Atlanta, it's hard to prove your case.
