Twenty boxes of documents with sensitive medical and financial information were lost during transportation sometime around Saturday, April 30.  The information was mostly from the office of a family lawyer, but other sensitive documents may have been lost on Highway 101 during the incident.  The boxes were being transported to a new Baker storage facility. Baker did not inform the lawyer that the documents had been lost and the incident was discovered when the lawyer's son saw a news report about the incident.  The documents appear to be from the 1980's and early 1990's.  An unknown amount of Social Security numbers were also exposed.
