Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Discovered in chapter 20, Lord Voldemort's Request

The cup was in the possession of Hepzibah Smith, a distant relation of the Hogwarts founder. It was shown to Tom Riddle during a visit to Hepzibah, and was found to be missing soon after Hepzibah was murdered. Professor Dumbledore suspects that Tom Riddle stole the cup, along with Slytherin's locket.
