This was definitely not your typical toilet paper.

A tax collector in the southern Austrian city of Graz accidentally left 22,000 euros, about $28,000, in cash in a black attaché case he placed on top of a toilet in the men's room of a local restaurant Thursday, police said.

By the time he realized it was missing and went back, the cash was gone, authorities said.

As of Friday, no one had turned up with the money, prompting police in the city 120 miles south of Vienna to issue an appeal for its return.
