JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis woman has recently claimed $700,000 in unclaimed property from the state, and another St. Louis woman claimed $110,000.

State Treasurer Clint Zweifel (ZWY-ful) said Wednesday in a release that the $700,000 return was made up of stocks, and the $110,000 return was from one savings account.

He says more than $600 million in unclaimed property is waiting to be claimed in Missouri, including 38 accounts with more than $100,000 each. Fifteen of those accounts are in St. Louis County, 12 are in Jackson County, three are in the city of St. Louis, two are in Boone County and there is one each in Buchanan, Butler, Camden, Cole, Franklin and Jasper counties.

New property also is added each week.
