The thief probably just opened the glove box and grabbed what was inside. Most likely thought it was a phone and when it turned out not to be, he/she just tossed it. But on the off-chance that he/she would try to see if it had any value, have you considered checking the pawn shops in your area? I'm guessing most pawn shop owners nowadays know the value of old HP calculators and so would be happy to buy a 42S for a few bucks from a customer who said he "found it at a garage sale" and obviously did not know the value. Depending on the laws in your area, if you know the serial number you might even be able to get the item back for free if you find it. Worst case, you might have to buy back your own calculator.
