How does the transferor/sender FFL receive notification that a firearm is stolen or lost?

The reporting requirement is not triggered until the transferor/sender FFL is aware that a firearm has been lost or stolen.  The transferor/sender FFL may be placed on notice of a theft or loss by a communication from the transferee/receiver FFL that the firearm was not delivered, or through communication from other sources such as the common carrier that the firearm was not delivered due to theft or loss in transit.
