, I towed the above mentioned property. I have been in possession of the abandoned property
for at least 30 days and the owner of the abandoned property or lienholder have not made arrangements for payment of towing
and storage charges. I have not been notified of any application for hearing as provided in Section 304.156, RSMo.
If notice to the owner and lienholder of the abandoned property has been returned “Not Forwardable” or “Addressee Unknown,”
my signature on this affidavit certifies that a physical search of the abandoned property disclosed no other evidence of
ownership and that a good faith effort has been performed to establish the prior state of registration and title. The following
was searched, if applicable:
1. The abandoned property for any type of license plates, license plate record, temporary permit, inspection sticker, decal,
or other evidence which may indicate a possible registration and title in another state;
2. The law enforcement report for a license plate number or registration number if the abandoned property was towed at
the request of a law enforcement agency;
3. The tow ticket or report of the tow truck operator to see if a license plate was on the abandoned property at the
beginning of the tow, if a private tow; and
4. The law enforcement report to see if an out-of-state address is indicated on the driver license information if there is no
address of the owner on the impound report.
Under penalties of perjury, I declare that the above information and any attached supplement is true, complete, and correct.
