The city of Terre Haute just came into a bit of money --  and you could be next. Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller was in town on Tuesday, presenting a $1,600 check to Mayor Duke Bennett. It's part of an initiative to find the rightful owners of unclaimed property money. The state's official mascot, Buck the Money Dog, was also on hand. Officials hope he will help get the word out about checking for unclaimed money

"It's helpful. Every little bit counts. I mean we're under a lot of stress here with the budget, we've talked about that many times, and any opportunity to get some funding we didn't expect is a good thing," said Mayor Duke Bennett.

Indiana's Attorney General Greg Zoeller adds: "I look at it as an obligation to really do more. My interest is not protecting the money for our treasury, it's to find the rightful owner. So each year we try to do more and more and we've always gotten better at it."

You can check to see if you have any unclaimed property online by clicking here or by calling 1-866-IN-CLAIM (1-866-462-5246).
