FBI, KS sheriff track down missing Dodge City police docket

The docket is from 1878 to 1882, and it includes references to Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp. One estimate says it's worth about $100K. The book had gone missing back in the 1950s, but after a year's investigation, officials from the FBI and the Ford County, Kan., Sheriff's Department tracked the docket to a man living in Ohio. It had apparently been handed down through his family over the past few decades. Christine should have a more complete report later.

UPDATE: Here's a longer story about the case, filed by the Hutch News.
