Jansen/Rudolphi (not verified)

I lost 2 suitcases (one green Samsonite and one grey Rimowa)on the 22nd of November 2009 at JFK.
I checked in, the woman behind the desk gave me my boarding passes and told me I have to take my suitcases to the x-ray machine. The guy at the x-ray machine told me its fine and I went to the gate. But the suitcases never came with the flight to Amsterdam.
Can you please help me finding my suitcases? I already contacted KLM many times, but they say they can't do anything more than sending e-mails to JFK and wait for their answer. Almost one month now and I start getting really worried. I hope anyone can help me.
The suitcases have either Jansen or Rudolphi on the name tags.
Thank you very much in advance.
Best regards,
Theo Jansen (tel. no: +31653147970)

Thank you,

My JetBlue flight was Sunday 12/13 out of JFK to Orlando Int. airport. i did curbside check in around 3:15-3:30. my flight was at 5:05.
When i got home and unpacked i found a pair of eye glasses in a case in my bag that aren't mine.
There was a tag in my bag from TSA showing that my bag had been inspected. I'm guessing that how the glasses got in there. Please let me know if you think they might be yours.
