San Francisco police are now conducting an “internal investigation” into the reported loss of a valuable iPhone 5 prototype.

In response to recent media reports discussing the alleged loss by an Apple employee of the item at a Mission District bar in late July, San Francisco police said that four of their officers later accompanied two Apple employees to a home in Bernal Heights. Apple had tracked the lost item to a house in the 500 block of Anderson Street.

Police said the Apple employees met with a resident there and searched the home but did not find the item. The employees did not want to make an official report of the loss.

Police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza confirmed Wednesday that the department has begun “an internal investigation into this incident.” Further details were not provided.
