Missouri returns more than $1.7 million in unclaimed property

Missouri Treasurer Clint Zweifel says his office has returned $1.7 million worth of unclaimed property to five account owners in the first quarter of the state's fiscal year.

In a news release Tuesday, Zweifel's office identified the recipients only as large company; a St. Louis-area office for a national company; a law firm; a Kansas City-area company; and a woman living in the St. Louis area.

Zweifel says his office currently is holding more than $760 million of unclaimed property for 4.6 million account holders. Missourians can go to the website
