POLICE are searching for the owners of property found in a flat in St Albans which has now been demolished.
They would like to return the property found under floorboards in a top flat at 224 Hatfield Road in August this year.
The items came to the attention of Bedford CID when they were brought into a Bedford town-centre shop to be sold by a third party.
Shop staff called the police because they were unable to verify the ownership of the items and detectives have retained them in an effort to reunite them with their owner.

But all efforts so far have drawn a blank and now police are making a public appeal for anyone who lived at the top of the flats in Hatfield Road and may have put something under the boards for safe keeping.
DC Mark Stewart said: "When they moved out, they appear to have forgotten to take the items along and although we've tried to trace the tenants that may have lived there, this has proved impossible so far.
