A flight attendant for Horizon Air has been arrested after a passenger who left his iPad on a plane used the 'Find My iPad' app to locate it.

The Daily Mail reports that Wendy Rochelle Dye, 43, was arrested in Oregon City on Friday, after the iPad's original owner activated the app, which then located the tablet in her Oregon home.

When questioned by police, Ms Dye initially denied having the iPad or even knowing that one had gone missing.

But she later confessed that a passenger had handed her the device, saying that it had been left on a seat.

She said that she never used the iPad and had planned to hand it over to airline officials, but put it in her bag and forgot about it.

However, police say that they found some of her personal information in it, including a reminder for her husband's birthday.

Ms Dye has been charged with Theft II by receiving and Computer Crime and a spokeswoman for Alaska Airlines, which owns Horizon, said she had been suspended pending a police investigation.

The iPad is now being returned to its owner in Reno, Nevada.
