Travel Bug not listed in search on GC site.

I recently found and retreived a TB that was not listed in the cache inventory. When I tried to look it up online on the website it came up with no result. The code is written on a metal tag that reads "Official Geocaching.com Travel Bug" with the official Logo on the flip side. Any ideas how this would happen? What can I do with it? Thanks!

Have you simply exchanged 0 (zero) and O (oh) and similar ?  A lot of times one letter/number looks like another.  :)


Looked to see how you've done in past trackables, and it seems you should know what to look for (though I probably wouldn't hold onto another's property in some cases well over a year.)

If the "metal tag" is not an official Travel Bug tag, then that (I feel) may be the culprit. 

Has anyone else mentioned a trackable they can't log on the cache logs ?  When issues, some just dump n run.

Also possible that someone placed it in the cache unactivated as swag.   I do that sometimes with geocoins.
