stolen printer

Hi, I had a printer stolen during my move to Kansas City and I am looking for any options I have to track it down using an IP, MAC  address or its https:// location number.  Any suggestions or recommendations would be helpful.  Thank you.

@dsquezly, Welcome to HP Support Community!


Unless you placed/hid a tracking device on the printer, there is no built-in way to track it.  Printers do not typically have tracking devices built-in as a part of the normal hardware.


This is a case that must be conducted by your local police force or similar authority that provides theft recovery services.


It may or may not be a "lost cause", though I would certainly report it to the authorities - if they do find a cache of printers somewhere and yours is with them, you may get it back or at least help prove the thieves are in possession of your property.


I hope that answers your concern adequately. Let me know!
