Lost or stolen is a possibility but my oldest brother used to be into water 
skiing and ran a water ski school for several summers. His students paid 
him with the money they carried in their swim suits and he dried it out on 
a clothes line in his ski shed. US currency is printed on amazingly tough 
paper. If you keep it in a plastic bag, it is unlikely to get wet enough to 
disintegrate. Those water skiers didn't bother with a plastic bag. They 
just stuffed it into their swimsuits.
