MISSING NUCLEAR MATERIAL

American Radio-Labeled Chemicals Inc. was expecting a shipment of 1 Curie Sulfur-35 on 07/22/05. It was being shipped from South Africa. The shipping company, DHL, picked up the shipment on 07/21/05 in Chicago, IL. On 07/22/05, American Radio-Labeled Chemicals contacted DHL since the shipment had not been delivered. At that time, DHL could not locate the shipment. DHL found the shipment in a dangerous goods warehouse in Ohio on 07/29/05. However, on 08/04/05, DHL indicated that it again does not know the location of the shipment. DHL is investigating the incident.
