    Arlington National Cemetery is trying to figure out what happened to $12 million.

    According to the Washington Post, Army auditors say the money was allocated for budgets between 2004 and 2010.

    Investigators don’t believe the money was stolen. They’re questioning now if it was returned or spent.

    Meanwhile, a probe into mismanagement at the cemetery revealed more grave sites at the facility than first thought. Estimates show 400,000 people are buried there instead of 330,000 counted in previous reports.

    The new estimate comes as a meticulous grave-by-grave review is under way at the cemetery. It comes after reports in 2010 of misplaced remains and mismanagement. That led the Army to oust the cemetery's top leadership.
