KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Police are investigating after hundreds of dollars went missing from the office of Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett.

It happened April 1 after a Burchett staffer was supposed to deposit $900 of the mayor's personal money into his bank account, but didn't make it to the credit union before it closed.

The aide says she hid the money under a mat on Burchett's desk overnight.

The next day, she noticed the money was missing and called police.

Two days after that, the cash mysteriously reappeared.

Police say they've interviewed several people and are going over evidence.

No arrests have been made.
