PHOENIX — The search is on for long-lost owners of unclaimed property in Arizona.

Ten of them have a combined $1.1 million worth, and the state is about to keep it legally.

Each case ranges from about $5,000 to more than $500,000, according to the Arizona Department of Revenue.

“Under current legislation, a person has 35 years to make a claim for unclaimed property,” said Spokesman Ed Greenberg.

The department has held their old payroll checks, forgotten safe-deposit box contents — and more — for 34 years.

ADOR has been trying to reach them, but they could be deceased.

“Family members for that person can make a claim, and then we can go through the process with them,” Greenberg said. “They are entitled to that property.”

Family members need identification and proof of relation.

Greenberg identified the following people with “old” unclaimed property and their last known addresses.

• Edward M. Ribar of Phoenix, 85016

• Geoffrey E. Underwood of Phoenix or Tucson

• James Mooney of Casa Grande

• Nancy or Jo Ann Niles of Tucson, 85705

• Dorothy M. Spaulding of Tucson, 85716

• Laurentian Doerr of Tucson, 85710

• Elizabeth A. Nelson of Tucson, 85726

• Alberto J. Mosquera of Phoenix, 85014

• Bess G. Adams of Phoenix, 85021

• Mary Jane Stungevicius of Scottsdale, 85253
