BY: CHARLOTTE RAYNOR
A 10-year-old boy found $10,000 in cash in a Kansas City hotel room, according to The Inquisitr on May 30. The boy was staying with his family on Saturday at the Hilton Airport Hotel. Tyler Schaefer was with his father Cody when he found the bills that were stacked very neatly inside of a drawer.
The boy has a habit of checking out every part of a hotel room when he travels with his family. This is the first time the 10-year-old has ever found a large amount of money by just arbitrarily hanging out in a hotel. His dad said he was “very observant.”
The father stated that Tyler had yelled that he had found some money when he found the cash. Cody thought it was maybe a five or 10 dollar bill, but instead the boy had found a considerable amount of money. At first, the family wasn’t sure what to do about the money.
“I didn’t know if it was real. I showed it to my dad and he said it was real,” the boy stated.
He explained that he was stunned by what he had found. The family turned the $10,000 over to the Kansas City Police Department. According to Sergeant Randy Francis, no one had reported missing the money at the hotel yet. The Sergeant feels that the found money might be just a little suspicious.
The owners of the cash have seven months to claim the money, and then the $10,000 might go back to the family. The father isn’t holding up much hope of that happening, but if it does, it will go towards Tyler and his two brother’s college fund.
“We didn’t have the money when we got there, so it doesn’t change much,” Cody stated.
