The Moonrock I Did Not Return (Formally)

What has happened to Nasa's missing Moon rocks?, BBC

"There were 370 pieces gathered for this purpose from the two missions. Two hundred and seventy were given to nations of the world and 100 to the 50 US states. But 184 of these are lost, stolen or unaccounted for - 160 around the world and 24 in the US."

Keith's note: JSC Moon rock people: I need to confess: I never actualy formally returned the Apollo 11 Moon rock (#10085,134) that I took to Nepal (the one that was taken to the summit of Mt. Everest by Scott Parazynski). Sorry about that. My bad. I gave it to some astronauts and it ended up on the ISS. So ... do I need to go get it and return it - or can you guys just do the paper work and check the box that says "returned"? Thanks.
