Things are starting to disappear from the house. What's your best advice on catching a possible thief who appears trustworthy?

Two portable electronics devices -- an iPod and a PSP -- have vanished over the last month. We don't have a lot of people over the house -- generally a couple of adult extended family members a handful of times a month, and a cleaning lady who is at the house two times a week. She has been with us for more than a year, is quiet and does a good job. But she is often there while no one else is home. Both these devices were being used by my 11-year-old who is a typical pre-teen and misplaces things. But he didn't leave the house with these items and what he misplaces eventually shows up. It is several weeks now, and having turned the house upside down, we are now suspicious that someone swiped them. How would you handle the situation? Let it go and watch carefully in the futuure, or attempt pursue it in a more direct way?
