COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- The University of South Carolina has warned more than 7,000 people they may have personal information on a missing desktop computer.
University spokesman Russ McKinney said Monday the desktop computer belonged to Deputy Dean Scott Koerwer of the Moore School of Business. The computer went missing two weeks ago, over Memorial Day weekend.
McKinney said faculty, staff and students whose information was in the computer are being notified. He said the university didn't believe the data had been looked at but wouldn't specify what information may have been on the computer.
The theft was first reported Monday by The State newspaper in Columbia.
McKinney said no other computers were missing and authorities are still investigating.
