'Treasure Finders' returning unclaimed property


PIKE COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - Officials from the State Treasury were in Pike County Thursday trying to return unclaimed money to folks in the area.

The State Treasurer says there is nearly $2.5 million of unclaimed property that belongs to folks in Pike County.

He says that could be anything from cash payments from companies to items that have been abandoned.

Volunteers set up a phone bank to let people know they had unclaimed property.

"When they get a call from somebody in their community whose name they recognize or whom they know because they see them in church every Sunday or because their kids go to school together they are more willing to accept that yes we're from the government and yes we really are trying to help," said State Treasurer Todd Hollenbach.

The treasurer says they will be traveling through all 120 counties.
