How can I find my Macbook's serial number without the Macbook?

My laptop was stolen yesterday. I know I'm never going to see it again, but I need the serial number for the police report/homeowners insurance claim. I don't have the laptop box or paperwork (also taken). I do have the original software cd's in their sleeves with the id numbers on them. I have an iTunes account that I used to download music/movies to that laptop. I am working on getting my aunt to look up which credit card she used to buy the laptop, but it was purchased in 2007 which is making things harder. I did register my laptop, but Apple supposedly can't find my email address listed. I'm still waiting to hear from aunt to be sure, but I think it was bought directly from Apple, not a reseller. It's possible I had a year of Applecare when the laptop was new, which would have also been paid for by my aunt.
Any tips on how to get Apple to cough up the info?
