Unclaimed property in the Four States - KOAM TV 7

Unclaimed property in the Four States

Updated: March 15, 2013 12:53 PM CDT

The Missouri state treasurer has put some unusual items on display from his unclaimed property vault.  Some of the items could belong to residents in Southwest Missouri.

State Treasurer Clint Zweifel found the items in over 1,000 safe deposit boxes his office received from more than 180 banks this year.

State workers are cataloging their contents so that they can be returned to their rightful owners.  Numerous Indian arrowheads, a St. Bernhard-shaped nutcracker and four Purple Hearts were just some of the unique items on display in the Truman State Office Building in Jefferson City.

"Folks often think about unclaimed property as dollars and cents - I hold about $700 million in unclaimed property that we are working to return to Missourians every day," says Zweifel.  "This is also a snapshot in time of many Missourians and of their lives at that point in time."

An estimated 1 in 10 Missourians have unclaimed property.

In the Southwest Missouri region there is $36.9 million in more than 418,000 accounts of unclaimed property.

To find out if you have any unclaimed items visit Missouri, Kansas or Oklahoma.
