After a weeks-long search involving several law enforcement agencies — including the FBI — Tom Brady‘s missing Super Bowl jersey has been recovered.
According to NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy, the jersey was found in the possession of an international media member.

The NFL declined to comment further because the investigation into the matter is ongoing.
Because of the Patriots’ historic Super Bowl comeback victory, the jersey had both great sentimental value to Brady and great financial value on the open market. A report filed with the Houston police department estimated the jersey’s worth at $500,000.
