Was the ark lost during Nebuchadnezzar's invasion?

Question: Was the ark lost during Nebuchadnezzar's invasion? Answer: Lost, or hidden? That is the question scholars have been wrestling with for a couple thousand years. The Bible does not record what happened, so we do not know for sure. There is one account in book not in the Bible that says that God told Jeremiah to hide the ark on Mount Sinai. That may be true, but we cannot know for sure. -PJ
