Looking for that proverbial needle in the haystack takes on some urgency when the needle is actually cash -- $200,000 in cash.To make things stickier -- the haystack was actually a mountain of garbage.

A Provo, Utah woman was going to deposit her company's money in the bank, but it somehow got mixed in with her household garbage.

While the woman prayed, employees of the garbage company began the search.

The first bag they touched had the cash.

Previous searches for everything from jewelry to family heirlooms have never found a thing.
