When can I legally get rid of it?

So last summer my younger brother and his fiance told DH & I that they both were interested in joining the military and wanted our help since DH had been in for over 10 years already.
They both wanted to move here and join the guard where DH is stationed.
After a long discussion my brother's fiance decided to come first because our guard post offers a GED program prior to enlisting and she needed her GED.
She moved here in the middle of Sept while my brother finished up work and getting his ducks in a row back at their home.
She placed a change of address card to our address, was receiving mail, etc. She had moved a large majority of her crap with her.
Well, DH caught her having an affair with her recruiter and despite all of that my brother took her side (he is young its gonna happen) and she bolted and left our home and all of her crap here.  That was the last week of Oct.
Well, despite efforts to contact her about her stuff we have gotten no return contact.
So my question is, how long does it take for her junk to be considered abandoned before I can legally get rid of it?

Make sure you have documentation of trying to contact her before doing so... Just in case!

Call your local sherrifs office. And see what they say. I have a truck in my yard for 10 it's and I cannot get rid of it legally without the title. So good luck.

You could put a lean on it, title bond and do what you want with it. Say the vehicle was left for your DH to work on. Owner never paid. You've had it for X. You need a title. They will give you the paperwork and you can get one.

 I called the sheriff's office today and they told me that they couldn't help me because it was a civil matter not a criminal and that I would need to get with a civil attorney... good grief
