you answered your own question - your son left it behind

therefore it is not stolen.
sure sure you want them to pay for it but... you are only assuming he left it there and didn't lose it somewhere else. and you're assuming an employee took it.
the problem you have is that you have no proof it was left in the car. they can't pay you for your son's mistake cos... they don't know if it was really left behind. as far as they know your son never even owned an mp3 player in the first place.
