In order to legally terminate the bailment, you have to give written notice to the bailor at their last known address. If you can find out where the kid lives now, that is good. If not, then ask your son to see if he knows where he used to live and send it there. I would send it certified mail as well as first class mail in case they have a forwarding address with the post office. State that you are terminating the bailment and the bailor has 7 days to remove the property or you will consider it abandoned and dispose of it. On day 8 if it is still there, you can dispose of it as abandoned by selling it as scrap, giving it away or having it towed.
