Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Ohio Joins National Unclaimed Funds Database
State officials say it’s going to be easier for Ohioans to check if they have money out there that they may have forgotten about.
State commerce director Kimberly Zurz says Ohio has joined MissingMoney-dot-com, a national database of accounts of unclaimed funds. Zurz says the state’s residents can go to the site and find out if they have dormant accounts in Ohio, as well as 34 other states, Washington, D-C and Puerto Rico.
Linking up with MissingMoney-dot-com is expected to save the state $100,000 a year in record-keeping costs. Officials also note that the state’s information about accounts of unclaimed money will now be updated weekly, instead of once a month.
