Lots of unclaimed property in Missouri

By Heartland News

(KFVS) - Are you missing some tickets to the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago?  How about a full printer's sheet of one-dollar bills?

Those are among the more unusual items held by Missouri State Treasurer Clint Zweifel as unclaimed property.

Since Zweifel became treasurer his office has returned $36 million in abandoned bank box holdings.

He has shortened the average return time from 45 to just 30 days and says things will go even faster once online claims become possible.

Sadly, the property recovered by the treasurer includes a number of military service medals.

If you think you might be the rightful owner of an abandoned bank box or other unclaimed property, information about the program is available at www.showmemoney.com.
