This is not an official TSA lost and Found board The only way to contact the TSA is at their phone and leave a message.
This is a private website not connected with TSA or any other entity of the federal government.
We know that you are upset with losing your belongings, but make sure you know who the right people to contact are. Also check your airlines contract of carriage to see what is covered. They have changed their rules so many things that were covered are not covered in checked baggage.
It's better to be safe than sorry.
And you should realize that by putting all your personal info out there in cyberspace you are putting yourself at some risk.

(Flight arrived in NYC at around 3:30) The camera is in a black case/bag and there is a second camera batterie in the camera bag.

I left an iPad mini in the female restrooms (the first set of restrooms I came to after disembarking American Eagle 3456 from Montreal) on 25 June at around 13:15-13:30. It was on the top if the toilet seat cover dispenser, in a grey soft woollen slip. A lady entered the restroom cubicle immediately after me, and did not say anything. I only realised after leaving the terminal that I had left the iPad there. Has it been handed in? Is there any CCTV covering the area?
