SANTA MONICA, California (CNN) -- A court document containing personal information about actress Winona Ryder is missing from a locked cabinet in the Los Angeles County Probation Department's office, a spokesman for the department said.

The document contains information that will be used in deciding a sentence for Ryder, 31, who was convicted Wednesday on charges of felony theft and vandalism for shoplifting more than $5,000 worth of goods from a Beverly Hills department store last December.

Spokesman Ken Kondo said it is extremely unusual for an item from a sealed file in a secure office to go missing, and the probation department is working with Santa Monica police to investigate the document's disappearance.

Such documents contain information about a person's financial status, medical history, marital status, facts regarding the events leading up to an arrest and information on a person's prior arrest record, if they have one.

While Ryder could receive up to three years in prison, prosecutors have said they won't ask for jail time for the actress. Her sentencing is set for December 6.
