Well, after more checking it appears that the news article was referring to an Apollo 11 moon rock similar to what the UK has at 10 Downing Street in the study:http://www.number10.gov.uk/tour/location_009.php
I found this on Wikipedia:
Elizabeth Riker was assigned the task of hunting down the Alaska Apollo 11 Moon Rock by her professor. On August 18, 2010, in a story she wrote about her investigation in the Capital City Weekly newspaper, of Juneau Alaska, she stated that after conducting a thorough investigation for Alaska's Apollo 11 Moon Rock she has concluded that it is missing. She advised that she planned to continue to look for the moon rock and asked for the help of the citizens of Alaska to accomplish her goal of finding it.
In 1973, there was a massive fire at the Alaska Transportation Museum where the moon rocks were being housed. Coleman Anderson (a crab fishing captain who was on the TV show, Deadliest Catch) went to the museum to scrounge through the garbage from the fire to see if there would be anything worth saving. Coleman was a kid at the time. He found the moon rocks, cleaned them up over the next few years and he still has them. To clear title to the rocks he filed a lawsuit against the State of Alaska, asking the Court to deem the rocks his sole property. "
The State of Alaska Goodwill Moon Rock is in the Alaska State Museum:http://www.collectspace.com/resources/moonrocks_goodwill.html
As a side note on Apollo 11, there is a slice of a Lunar sample collected during that mission in the center of the upper sphere on the Space Window at the Washington National Cathedral:
