My TB was in a cache last May, 2006 in Alabama - and was never heard from - so I marked it missing last Oct. Then May 19, 2007 a person discovered it in the Czech Republic. I have tried to move it to the last location, so that it can be back in action, but it won't let me move it. Any suggestions? Thanks !

Grab it from wherever it's at, then log it into the cache that it's in with a "write note" log. Once you log it into the cache you can delete your "note" log if you like - the bug will stay on that cache page.

I can't grab it from anywhere, because it says it's in an unknown location.

I'm assuming it is this bug?

Just click on the "Found it?" link?

You should be able to "grab it from somewhere else" on your bug page when you go in to "add a log entry".

From the bug's main page in the drop downs on the top right of the page in the "Trackable Item Owner Options" you should also be able to move it to its last location. Presumably the cache it went missing from. You would then need to grab it from there and then plop it into the cache it is currently in.

You will need to post a note in the cache you place it into to get it in there and as Pear Head indicated you might want to delete that/those logs.

Good luck and glad the bug reappeared!!

Thanks everyone, I've got it back in my position. So now I have to figure out where this guy discovered it in the Czech Republic. A big thanks to all of you for your help, I don't know how I couldn't figure it out.

I'm guessing it this event cache named Czech GeoCheck?
