I left a handheld GPS on a plane at DEN in 2005. (Well, sort of. I knew I downloaded data from the GPS to my computer on the fight and knew I didn't have the GPS immediately after deplaning, but the gate agent wouldn't let me back on the plane to look for it, and she either did an extremely cursory search for it or pocketed it, because I never got it back.)

Many nervous nellies think carrying a GPS is a sign of being a terrorist, since it could in theory be used to guide an aircraft.

That there were no reported flight diversions in the next few days in fact suggests to me that the gate agent pocketed it.
