Swiss authorities seek owner of $190K worth of gold bars left on train

Swiss authorities are looking for the owner of $190,000 worth of gold bars that were apparently left behind on a train last year, according to a report.

Local prosecutors in Lucerne said the gold bars were found on the train after the passengers had left a Federal Railways train in St. Gallen – about 55 miles east of Zurich, UPI reported.

Swiss officials say no one has yet claimed $190,000 worth of gold bars found on a train last year.

Authorities made the discovery in October but are now appealing to the public for help after an investigation into the origin of the gold bars hit a dead end.
