FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky Treasurer Todd Hollenbach says his office's booth at the state fair put some Kentuckians on the path toward collecting unclaimed property.

Hollenbach says more than 2,000 claims valued at more than $350,000 were started at the Treasure Finders booth at the fair. Hollenbach says 11 state treasury employees put in a total of 228 hours of work at the fair in Louisville.

He says the success stories included as much as $14,000 in stock found by a surprised mother of three.

The state treasurer serves as custodian of all property surrendered to the state that is presumed lost or abandoned. Each year, the Kentucky Treasury returns millions of dollars in unclaimed property to Kentucky residents.
