Student leaves $172,000 violin on US bus

Student from Taiwan leaves rare violin worth $172,000 on board US bus By The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) ' Police are asking for the U.S. public's help in recovering a rare violin worth $172,000 ('131,831.07) that was left on board a Boston-to-Philadelphia bus by a groggy music student from Taiwan.

Philadelphia police say the instrument was left in an overhead bin on a Megabus late Tuesday.

Muchen Hsieh tells KYW-TV she noticed she didn't have the violin after getting picked up by the family hosting her visit to the Philadelphia area. She called the bus company but was told the instrument hadn't been found.

Hsieh says a Taiwanese culture foundation lent her the violin as she studies at the New England Conservatory in Boston. It was made in 1835 by Vincenzo Jorio in Naples.

Lt. John Walker says the instrument can be returned to Philadelphia police, no questions asked.
