Missouri residents are being urged to find out if they have any unclaimed property being held by the state. Treasurer Clint Zweifel says his office currently holds around $600 million in unclaimed cash and merchandise. The items include World's Fair tickets, bank notes from the early 1800's, and unclaimed war medals.
"We've returned 21 of those since I took office, because we've had a closer partnership with veterans' organizations to really get that information [out] and insure that these medals either get returned back to their family or ultimately the medals get to see the light of day so that the veterans can be honored," Zweifel said.
Zweifel says more than $72 million in unclaimed property has been returned over the past two years. Anyone who thinks the state may have something of theirs can check online at ShowMeMoney.com.
