Former first daughter Malia Obama reportedly lost her iPhone at the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago.

In a short video clip filmed at the festival, 19-year-old Malia was seen letting her hair down and dancing wildly with a friend as The Killers performed on stage, according to Page Six.

But at some point during the festivities, Malia lost her iPhone and had to have it replaced at an Apple store in Chicago. The Secret Service reportedly accompanied her to the store.

Confusing matters further was the fact that, according to a witness, Malia didn't know her Apple ID or password.

"Malia came into the Apple Store to get her iPhone replaced, but things didn't go exactly [as planned]," the witness told Page Six. "The Apple Store couldn't immediately help her because she didn't have the Apple ID or the password for the missing phone, since the White House set it up."

A representative for the Obama family declined to comment on the incident.

Also attending Lollapalooza was Malia's 16-year-old sister, Sasha, who was spotted making out with her new boyfriend, a young man named Matt Metzler, according to Celebrity Insider.

Malia is rumored to have been involved with Rob Franklin, a 23-year-old Stanford graduate. But a source told Celebrity Insider that she is unattached at the moment.

"Malia Obama is single and might be one of the most eligible bachelorettes in America," the source said. "She would love to find a boyfriend in New York and [she] has friends, but for now, she is not dating anyone exclusively."

Asked in a recent interview about his daughters' foray into the dating scene, former President Barack Obama said he was "pretty relaxed about it for two reasons."

"One is [their mom] Michelle. She is taught -- she is such a great example of how she carries herself, her self-esteem, not depending on boys to validate how you look or you know, not letting yourself be judged by anything other than your character and intelligence," he explained. "And hopefully, I have been a good example regarding how I have shown respect to my wife. So I do not worry about it because they are really solid, smart girls -- young ladies, now."

Malia recently had her first experience on a film set, as well, serving as production assistant on Halle Berry's Sci-Fi series "Extant."

"She was fantastic, she was amazing," Berry said in an interview with Andy Cohen, according to AOL. "She was down to do whatever a PA is asked to do, and I had wild respect for her for that."

Berry added: "Everybody couldn't really see her as a PA, although she tried and tried to be one. We just couldn't really see her as one, but to her credit, she tried very hard to be one."
