Personal information belonging to thousands of Tinley Park residents has been lost. A backup computer tape that contained the data vanished during a transfer process.

Village officials say the risk that anyone could access the information is very slim.

The computer tape had Social Security and bank account numbers for 19,000 people.

Letters are being mailed to anyone impacted.

Village officials say foul play is not suspected.
