The US oilfield services company Halliburton has found a seven-inch radioactive rod it lost in the Texas desert almost a month ago.

The company lost the rod, which contains americium-241/beryllium, during a 130-mile journey between oil well sites in Pecos and Odessa on 11 September.

A spokesman for Halliburton said the device was found late on Thursday night on a road about seven miles from the well site in Pecos, where the rod was last used.

Midland County sheriff Gary Painter said an oilfield pumper recognised the device from fliers that had been handed out in the area.
