The owner of this piece was on a road trip from New York City to Oklahoma and believes that it went missing in or near Branson, Missouri.
The item was in a white nylon drawstring bag which was inside a clear DVD case.
This piece was taken as a "trophy" from a slain warrior at the Sand Creek Massacre by the owner's great-great grandfather.
The owner had planned to return the item to the proper tribe when it was lost.
There is a $1,000 reward for the return of the item.
More information about the history of the amulet can be found on the KY3 News Website
