The 100 thousand dollar instrument was then found by another musician in Downtown San Diego on Friday night.
The Chula Vista man who found it saw the instrument lying under a bush and took it home, not knowing the backstory.
His mother said she recognized the cello and found a way to reach John. When he found out, he made sure to get the cello back to Walz without a scratch.
