My cousin stole my dads iPhone 6? - April 16th 2016, 04:21 PM

Hey guys I'm not sure what to right now but basically my dad said his iPhone 6 went missing 2 weeks ago and that when one of my cousins stayed over and spent a few nights and a week later (when my cousin left) is when he said that his phone went missing. My mum has now came back from Pakistan (she was in Pakistan while my cousin was staying over) and has said that my cousin probably stole it as she said that his mum is a theif and attempted to steal some of her clothes in Pakistan at one time.(There's a lot of family problems) My mum is now telling me and my siblings that he's a theif and stole my dads iPhone but my dad is saying he lost it in his own car/ it fell out of his pocket (his story keeps changing). I don't know what to do, to be honest. My dads sim changed and he put a passcode on his phone. My mum is saying to try and track the phone but then she says he could have sold it already in Canada. Should I ask my cousin about it? I would really appreciate any replies

I think it might help to track the phone first, as you don't want to accuse anyone of stealing if there is already tension in the family. If it appears to be in a different location, perhaps around where your cousin is or even if it has been sold and is somewhere else, then you can ask your cousin about it.

I agree with Holly. It is better to track the phone first before accusing your cousin of doing something they may or may not have done. Your dad could be telling the truth that he lost it somehow in his car or that it fell out of his pocket.
If tracking the phone shows that it is where your cousin lives or somewhere else, then you should let your parents inquire about it. You are not the person who the phone belongs to so it should not be your responsibility to contact your cousin about it. Your dad is capable of doing what is necessary to get his phone back.
Try not to stress out about this because you are not really effected by it. It is not your phone and getting caught up in family drama can make things a lot more complicated.
Just my thoughts about this anyways.

I am going to move this to family and friends becuase I believe the thread fits better there but if you have any further questions about this you can PM me and I will be glad to help.
Take care.
