Colorado moon rocks missing

A set of moon rocks given to Colorado in 1974 have apparently gone missing. 

The rocks are valued at $5 million on the black market and few even realized that they existed until a college student began searching for them for an assignment.
Another set of moon rocks collected in 1969 was found in storage at the state history museum about a decade ago. They're now on display on the third floor of the state Capitol.

Neither the history museum nor the Denver Museum of Nature & Science has the second set of rocks and the governor's office doesn't know where they are. University of Phoenix student Richard Griffis thinks they could be in the personal effects of Gov. John Vanderhoof held at the state archives.
