Historic Bible Given to President Franklin Roosevelt Turns Up Missing at Bill De Blasio's Swearing In



Bill de Blasio places his hand on the FDR Bible as his family look on and former President Bill Clinton delivers the oathThe historic Bible presented to President Franklin Roosevelt as a gift and used at the swearing in of New York Mayor Bill De Blasio on Wednesday went missing.  The hunt for the recovery involved 50 policemen and officials.

The book disappeared right after the New Year's Day ceremony at City Hall.

De Blasio, the 109th New York Mayor, had laid his hand on it and taken an oath in front of former President Bill Clinton.

The book was eventually found several hours later by a police detective, who announced the end of the hunt with applause from the crowd.

Unlike the fancy limo arrivals of previous mayors, De Blasio arrived for his own ceremony by subway, accompanied by his wife Chirlane McKray and their children Chiara and Dante. 

Speakers at the event, attended by an array of guests, from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Governor Andrew Cuomo, to stars including Cynthia Nixon and Steve Buscemi, reiterated his campaign theme of justice and equality.
