Swiss man has unique response to cellphone theft

SWITZERLAND (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A man from Switzerland is taking advantage of having his cellphone stolen.

On a train to Surich, Niklaus's phone was taken right from his pocket.

But the woman who stole it didn't erase its data.

So the photos she was taking were still posting to Niklaus's Dropbox account as backup.

Now he is on a mission to find her, but not to get his phone back.

Niklaus and a friend posted to Facebook with a proposal, saying she can keep the phone if she agrees to go on a date with him.
