Apple says it's trying to track down a lost iPhone 5 prototype.

For the second time in less than two years an Apple employee has lost an iPhone prototype.

According to CNET, the iPhone was left at a San Francisco bar in July.

A source says Apple jumped to secure the device's safe return, by contacting SFPD, and electronically tracking the phone.

The phone was traced to a two story, single-family home, but when police and Apple investigators arrived, the occupant, a man in his twenties, denied knowing anything about it.

Officers searched the house, and found nothing.

When an Apple representative offered cash with no questions asked, the man still denied knowing anything about the lost device.

It is believed the phone was sold on Craigslist, for $200, but no known photos or information about the software have surfaced.
