CHARLESTON (AP) — The West Virginia treasurer's office will start distributing the latest round of newspaper inserts this week to let unclaimed property owners know the state is holding assets for them.

Treasurer John Perdue says the inserts will begin on Tuesday.

State code stipulates that such inserts be published. About 13,000 names are included in the latest tabloid-size publication that will be distributed in each county until Sept. 12. None of the names have previously been published.

In the 2013 fiscal year, the treasurer's office returned $6.2 million in unclaimed assets to owners.

Unclaimed property can include a left-behind utility deposit, a forgotten paycheck or stock dividends not cashed and reported as unclaimed.
