Legal Question in Business Law in Missouri

I have worked from home for a number of years, I had worked for this company previously and they were bought out, then went back on a part time basis. I had a laptop from them originally that they gave to me when I left the first time. I then went back to work for them and after a time, the laptop died and they bought me a new one. The old one was backed up so they transferred all of the pictures, personal info., and business documents to the new computer. On 9/13/13, I was let go due to financial difficulties from the company, that was over a month ago. Nothing was said about the laptop so I assumed it was mine, since I had so much personal info on it. My question is do I have a legal obligation to return the computer, I just received a call that they now, after over a month, want it back? Let me know, Please!
