A man who found 10,000 US dollars before boarding a flight in Las Vegas said he returned the money to the owner because he wanted to show his children it was "the right thing to do".

Colorado resident Mitch Gilbert told KUSA-TV he found two unmarked Caesar's Palace envelopes at the airport and realised there was money inside when he arrived home.

The television station reported that Mr Gilbert called the airport and eventually got in touch with a man from El Paso, Texas, who reported the money missing.

Mr Gilbert said he deposited the money in the man's bank account two days before Christmas.

The man told the television station he won the money gambling and dropped it while running to catch a flight.
