KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) A 10-year-old boy found $10,000 in a drawer at a Kansas City hotel room and turned the money over to police.
Tyler Schaefer found the money Saturday in the room at the Hilton airport hotel where he and his father, Cody Schaefer, were staying.
The Kansas City Star reports that Cody Schaefer, a truck driver from Rapid City, S.D., said Tyler likes to look for things. After they checked into their room, Tyler began opening all the drawers. It wasn't long before he found the neatly stacked bills.
Schaefer told his son they couldn't keep the cash because they didn't know who it belonged to. So they handed it over to police.
Police said Thursday no one has come forward to claim the money, which they're holding for safekeeping.
