Well, duh!

It's unclear how authorities will verify the claims of anyone who comes forward to say the gold is theirs.
That is probably the stupidest thing the BBC has said this week.

Re: Swiss search for owner of gold haul left on train

If I left three to four kilos of gold on the train, I'd probably have noticed quite quickly and registered a claim at the lost property. Maybe the owner was in some sort of hurry.

You can do a search here of the SBB lost property, but there does not appear to be a specific category for gold bullion:

Re: Swiss search for owner of gold haul left on train

It was last October. Most likely it was stolen, otherwise surely an honest owner would have come forward by now!

Indeed, maybe this person was carrying 10 kilos and had to leave 3 behind to run faster

Not necessarily stolen, also quite possible that the owner had not declared said gold in their tax return...
