COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M; University has located a box containing radioactive research material after the FedEx package was missing since last month.

KBTX-TV (https://bit.ly/1KpozjP ) school officials Tuesday announced the package was located in an A&M; secure hazardous material storage facility.

An A&M; statement says the package was unopened, undamaged and in its original shipping container. School officials say the package is safe for transportation and storage and that the community was never in any danger.

KBTX reported Monday that records show someone signed for the package Aug. 21, but it never reached A&M;’s Radiation Safety Office in College Station.

The box was sent from the Science Engineering & Education Co. in the Minneapolis area.
