Lost: One Starivarius, Well Used, Great Sentimental Value

As with sausage, you never know what you'll find in the lost-and-found. A Stradivarius violin reportedly worth millions of dollars turned up Sunday in the lost property office at a train station in Bern, Switzerland, according to Yahoo! News. The violin's owner had loaned the instrument to a friend, who left it on a train when he got off at Bern on Friday. Security cameras recorded someone carrying the violin off the train at a different station. The instrument was found at the Bern station's lost property office. Neither the name of the violin's owner nor of his/her friend has been released. Read more: Stradivarius Violin Handed in at Swiss Lost Property Office (Yahoo! News)
