The 2015 Unclaimed Property Report is hot off the press and ready to be distributed in Nebraska's 16 daily newspapers, beginning March 8. The 44-page publication lists almost 160,000 new properties that were added to the Treasurer's database in 2014. It was printed Feb. 10 at the Lincoln Journal Star.
This year's report features the stories of three families and one business that found unclaimed property last year. Featured are Jim Allen, president of Western Potatoes of Alliance; Darrel and Nancy Weers of Lincoln; Dave and Sue Erickson of Omaha; and Rosie Linnenbrink of West Point.
