Lost and Found: What is in that suitcase?

Everyone fears that their suitcase will be the one that gets left behind. Ever wonder though, what really happens to those lost suitcases?

In some cases (no pun intended), unclaimed baggage that has been sitting for over 90 days gets moved to an auction location in Alaska.
