Yuya's heart scarab has been found on the ground outside the Cairo Museum gift shop. It's condition has not been reported. It was found with one of the missing shabti and part of a New Kingdom coffin (which wasn't on the list of stolen items).

Report from Ahram Online.

TV cameras are invited in to the Egyptian Museum on Wednesday to confirm that Tutankhamun's golden mask has not been stolen. If any TV crew is listening can you please also insist on seeing the Royal Mummy room and the filming in the Late Period rooms (e.g. Tanis jewellery collection).  The reports we are getting are ever more contradictory and seeing things are safe and present is currently almost as important as documenting any losses.
