Hello
So you are the landlord.
All I would do is give them notice that the lease has been terminated due to them absconding.
If they do not come back and pick up their belongings, it will be sent over for good will. (Vinnies / The Salvos etc)
There is little else that needs to be done at this point.

I wish to help you in this situation.
