WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Investigators say a handgun found near a local elementary school does not appear to be stolen.

According to a report from the Wausau Police Department, a Beretta model 21A .22 LR caliber handgun was recovered near Lincoln Elementary School. 

A .22 LR caliber bullet was also found.

According to investigators, the serial number on the firearm was run through a National Crime Information Center database and doesn't appear to be stolen.  Stolen weapons appear on the database if the owner reports them missing.

Investigators are doing more tests to find the gun's rightful owner.  They could know the answer as early as Wednesday.

Lincoln Elementary School is located at 720 6th Ave South in Wausau.
