Dear Sydney Trains,

I have recently Lost my new Phone in sydney Train. The Phone has significant emotional importance to me as it has photos of my New Born in them and i realized that they are not synced to my cloud.

Train Details:
Date: 31Jan
Train from Townhall towards richmond at around 14:04 (running late)
Got down at Wentwort ville station at Around 14:40 ( 4 min late)

when i realized i lost my phone i immediately turned however train door was closing and went off

I was in second carriage from front and sitting in upper deck. I am indian and i was in blue shirt and black pant and i had brown Parcel bag in my hand which is big size. it should give pretty good idea to look for me

I believe the phone was picked up by a person who moved to the seat after a got down.

I just want to understand if anyway i can get footage of carriage for time between 14:40 till 14:50

Yours faithfully,

Prashant Mulya

Afternoon Prashant,

A search has been undertaken by the Sydney Trains and the footage for the timeframe of your request has now been located.

I have reviewed the footage found and while there does not appear to be visible images of anyone pick up your phone, footage covering the period identified was preserved.

Next Steps

Please follow one of the following means of requesting access to the CCTV:

•The NSW Police can request a copy of the footage via IASK. If they are unable to do so, please advise them to direct their enquiries to this office

•If the matter is for court, please submit a Subpoena to the relevant agency and advise the legal counsel of the above reference number.

•Should neither of the above apply, or you wish to apply to view the CCTV footage, you may apply for access to the information through a formal application under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA Act).

Please note: Applications under the GIPA Act are considered on a case-by-case basis and in some circumstances (where there is an overriding public interest against doing so) access is not provided to the applicant.

You can quote reference 19I-0258.
