CHARLESTON - ABC television’s Good Morning America highlighted State Treasurer John Perdue’s unclaimed property program for the second time this year, as a camera crew visited the Big Chimney home of daughter Teresa and mother Melissa Cisco in December.

Teresa, an elementary school physical education teacher, received a check for $1,051.93. Treasurer Perdue returned a check to Melissa for $15,124.81.

“It sure is nice to get that kind of money this time of year,” Teresa said of the near-Christmas windfall. “It’s hard to think that I misplaced that kind of money but I guess I did.”

Good Morning America consumer correspondent Elisabeth Leamy joined Treasurer Perdue for the mother and daughter check presentations, as she did earlier this year when Treasurer Perdue returned nearly $15,000 to Steve and Vickie Shaluta of St. Albans.

“To think that Good Morning America would highlight our program two times in one year is remarkable and very gratifying,” the Treasurer said. “It says a lot about the effort and time we put into returning property here.”
