Police say they've found a pair of autographed shoes once owned by the late Michael Jackson that were stolen early Sunday from the Loews Hotel in Center City.

Investigators say someone took the shoes and the certificate of authenticity from the Hair O' The Dog auction on the second floor sometime before 2 a.m. Sunday.

Investigators tell NBC10 hotel security was handling another incident at the other end of the hallway and when they returned the shoes were missing.

There were about 2,000 people at the auction, according to police.

Shortly after 6 p.m., auction officials announced that the shoes were located after someone found them inside their luggage. Investigators have not yet revealed whether the person who found the shoes had anything to do with the theft. No arrests have been made.
