University of New Mexico officials say personal information for 3,000 employees may have been stored on a laptop computer that was stolen.

The university notified the employees by e-mail that some personal information may have been on a laptop taken Wednesday from a San Francisco office.

University officials learned of the theft Friday from an outside consultant working on UNM.s human resource and payroll systems.

The university says the laptop is believed to have names, e-mail and home addresses, UNM ID numbers and net pay for a pay period for staff, faculty and a few graduate students.

University officials say they don.t believe there.s any significant risk of identity theft.

UNM says that without passwords, ID numbers can.t be used to access university systems.
