A lost owner may be deceased in which case their heir(s) need to be identified, contacted and established as the legal heir(s). There are many instances where even heirs of deceased owners have died so the reunification involves multiple heirs and estates spanning more than one country. Loss of contact with an owner could also be due to; bad, outdated or incomplete addresses, owners unaware of the escheat risks and the dormant status of their account(s), misunderstanding the messages that do get through and/or get sidetracked with everyday personal and professional lives, etc.
