Tom Brady's missing Super Bowl jersey has been found.

The NFL released a statement confirming that a joint operation between the league, the New England Patriots' security team and the FBI recovered it.

The jersey went missing after the game. Houston police estimated the value at $500,000 and it had been missing for more than six weeks. But that wasn't all authorities found. They also recovered Brady's Super Bowl 49 jersey and a Denver Broncos helmet from Super Bowl 50 last year.

Multiple media reports point to a member of the international media for the missing jerseys.

Authorities haven't officially released the name of the suspect.

ESPN reports authorities used footage from FOX which they claim shows the man entering the locker room, reaching into Brady's bag, putting the jersey into a black plastic bag and leaving.

According to NFL.com, the discovery of the second jersey was unexpected, but Brady was happy to know they have been found.

"I am happy my jerseys from SB 49 and SB 51 have been recovered, and I want to thank all of the law enforcement agencies involved," Brady said on Twitter Monday. "I know they worked very hard on this case – and it is very much appreciated. Hopefully when I get the jerseys back I can make something very positive come from this experience."

Both jerseys are now in possession of the Boston FBI and law enforcement is working to authenticate them.
