Series 12 Ep 8 – Christopher Cole

Unexpected windfall as Hidden assets are discovered

The majority of cases that are worked on by the Finders International are those that do not include a Will. So it’s a surprise to the team when a firm of solicitors forward the case of Christopher Cole, as he did make a Will. However, a hidden asset means that the team must carry out research into finding his next of kin. On this journey, they unearth that the deceased followed in the footsteps of his father and grandfather who dedicated their lives to the postal service. As the search continues, it’s increasingly difficult to find any heirs and so the risk of the assets going to the crown heightens.
