    Only thing you can do is report it to the police.

    Not really. They will only help if for some reason the iPod is turned in or they recovery it..

    No. An iPod does not have GPS. For location the iPod usse the location of nearby wifi routers that are in Apple database.

    If you had already turned on the FindMyiPod feature in Settings>iCloud and wifi is onand connected you can go to iCloud, sign in and go to FindMyiPhone. Just note that if the iPod has been restoed that feature is deleted.

    Apple will not help

    Some further ideas for stolen items. In addition to the item previously being registered with Apple, I registered my stolen unit on the following sites from an idea given by John Galt (tks), stolen911.com, stolenlostandfound.com, stolen-property.com, immobilize.com, tracechecker.com. craigslist in my area, and yes, filed a police report. I made sure I placed the serial number (SN) in a position so that the internet search engines would pick it up.  You can view what I have done by typing in the SN# CCQHCB9VDNQW in a search engine. After all this, though, it is likely we will NEVER get this Ipod back, if we do I will post an update. Further, places that take trades, like GameStop and such, apparently do NOT cross check the serial number, some pawn shops I contacted do, it is unlikely general buyers check the SN, not unless you specifically ask for the SN to check on used items to see if they are reported stolen.  Apple said that the person can walk in for service and they do not cross check, b/c of all the outlets people can get the used products from, ebay, craigslist, etc.  It would be nice if you could somehow flag the SN at Apple or iTunes with the SN, but I have been told repeatedly they don't track this. (Apple is not the police, I get it).  I don't know - there has to be a way to stop this, I would rather have this item in the trash than in the hands of the person that stole it.  Karma is an option if you are a believer in that.  Good luck to all finding their items and if anyone has some other good ideas, open to them.
