A Plymouth police officer's gun has gone missing after he inadvertently left it in the Wareham District courthouse bathroom.

Plymouth Cheif Michael Botieri says that Captain John Rogers Jr. put the gun down in the bathroom around 3 pm Monday then left without taking it. When he went back for it minutes later, it was gone.

He immediately notified court officials who conducted a search for the weapon both inside and outside the courthouse  to no avail.
