EAST TEXAS (KTRE) -

The Texas Unclaimed Property Program said there is $4 billion in unclaimed money and property in the state of Texas. They're urging you to go and get your money! 

An outreach specialist said there is $4.1 million worth of unclaimed money and property in Angelina County and $3.6 million in Nacogdoches County.

"It really could be anybody. It could be somebody deceased, and they left money behind. It could be you, and you don't realize somebody owed you money in the past. It could be mineral rights and insurance policies. Anything that you didn't even realize was missing in the first place!" said Martha Wasp, an outreach specialist. 

Wasp said it's easy to claim your money. You can go and claim at http://comptroller.texas.gov/up/ and search for you, your business, or anyone you would like to search for in Texas.
