Luggage Removal from a Commercial Aircraft--How Does It Work?

When someone checks in for a flight but doesn’t board, how do airlines locate their luggage to remove it from the aircraft?

Most of us have been on flights that were 5-10 minutes late, because checked-in passengers failed to board, and their luggage had to be removed from the aircraft.
How they heck are they able to do this when there are hundreds of bags loaded on the plane? I’m looking for something more than “barcodes”.
