Exclamation Lost "new" 3ds

Hello all,
I know it's a long shot but... My son left his 3ds on an Air Transat flight on Saturday (22 Aug). I'm hoping I can appeal to you kind people for help. It hasn't been handed in to lost property so it looks like someone has taken it. It will turn up in either Gatwick or Toronto. I have spoken to Nintendo who have said they can move his eShop content to a new one, but he will lose all his streetpass progress etc, he is heartbroken.

The DS is locked down with parental controls, so is a fairly useless item. It can not be connected to eshop or internet without my pin. I hope therefore that the person who found it will come looking round forums like this for information.
If anyone can help me recover it I'll give a reward of GBP 60, That's half the money I paid for it.

Distinguishing features:
Nintendo network ID is alexrocks2005
cream colour
No cover plates
Home screen organised into folders "mii stuff" "Jurassic world" and more
Trying to get hold of the serial no but it doesn't seem to be on the box

Any advice gratefully received, including other places to post this request. Please forward this on to anyone you think might help.

have you tried contacting either airports to report a lost 3ds, if they find one that looks similar they can check it for this information hopefully?

Hi,
yes, both airports' lost property departments have logged it, but nothing has turned up. That's what makes me think someone must have picked it up.

i was thinking asking them to check their bags and look for the 3ds that way, if they can do that
