Christiana: How did voldemort get his wand back after he was in was exile

J.K. Rowling: Wormtail, desperate to curry favour, salvaged it from the place it had fallen and carried it to him. I admit that would have been a bit of a feat for a rat, but they are highly intelligent creatures!
The way it's worded, it almost sounds like Wormtail found it in the wreckage of the house where the Potters were hiding and took it to Voldemort when he created his proto-body which would be in GoF. It wouldn't seem he would need to curry favor before that. And as willfitz mentions, he doesn't have it in PoA. But then it seems odd no one would have picked it out of the debris before that.
