NBC NEWS' TIKI BARBER SURPRISES AMERICANS WITH MILLIONS OF DOLLARS THEY NEVER KNEW THEY HAD IN TWO SPECIAL AIRINGS OF 'YOU MIGHT BE RICH!' � SUNDAY, APRIL 26 AND MAY, 3 AT 7 PM ON 'DATELINE'

One Family Gets A Money Surprise in a Special Live Announcement on May 3rd Program

NEW YORK � April 15, 2009 � In state treasuries across America, billons of dollars in unclaimed property sits, waiting to be returned to millions of people. Yet many state officials don't have the resources to find everyone. Last August, "Dateline NBC" helped states crack some of their toughest, unsolved cases with the result of nearly $2 million dollars being returned to average Americans. Now NBC News' Tiki Barber and his team, including NBC News' Peter Alexander and MSNBC's Tamron Hall, are back at again, finding ordinary people who are unaware they have money coming to them in "You Might Be Rich!"

Barber and his team travel from coast to coast and overseas to help return close to $5 million dollars to over a dozen individuals. Especially timely considering today's economy, "Dateline" was able to bring great news to some individuals in financial trouble. In one case, the NBC News team traveled to Germany to give a former Pennsylvania resident the news he was entitled to over a half million dollars from an inheritance. The story becomes even more extraordinary when our team discovered the recipient was homeless. In another case, "Dateline" spent a year tracking down the rightful owner of more than a million dollars that was sitting in the Illinois state treasury waiting to be claimed. The two, hour-long specials are airing on Sunday, April 26 (7:00 PM/ET) and Sunday, May 3 (7:00 PM/ET).

For the May 3rd program, "You Might Be Rich!" will be live from outside Rockefeller Center and will surprise one unsuspecting family with the incredible news they have unclaimed money coming to them.

David Corvo is the executive producer of "Dateline NBC" (Fridays 9:00-11:00; Sundays, 7:00-9:00 PM/ET).
