Simply lost?

"MARRIOTT DISCLOSES MISSING DATA FILES; BACKUP TAPES LOST AT TIME-SHARE UNIT: Marriott International Inc.'s time-share division said yesterday that it is missing backup computer tapes containing credit card account information and the Social Security numbers of about 206,000 time-share owners and customers, as well as employees of the company. Officials at Marriott Vacation Club International said it is not clear whether the tapes, missing since mid-November, were stolen from the company's Orlando headquarters or whether they were simply lost."
