We all must have left behind something or the other at the cab, train, or any means of public transport after getting down.

But can you imagine someone leaving behind a bagful of gold in a train compartment?

Exactly, this has been done by a person in Switzerland.

And the authorities are frantically searching for the person.

According to reports, efforts are on to track down the owner of more than three kg of gold that was left in a carriage last October.

The hoard, worth around £152,000 ($191,000), was found on a train between St Gallen and Lucerne.

The owner has five years to stake their claim at the prosecutor’s office in Lucerne, an official statement had said.

The discovery is only being made public now after efforts to track down the owner were unsuccessful.

It’s, however, not known how authorities will verify the claims of anyone who comes forward to say the gold is theirs.
