Abandoned property

A renter who didn't pay October rent and was given the 3 day notice to vacate, did so on 11/5.  Unfortunately, she left behind an apartment full of furniture/clothes etc.  She left a voice mail message that someone would be contacting me to pick up everything.  So far, I have been contacted once by said people but they did not come on the agreed upon day.   1.  How long do I have to hold on to the contents of the apartment?   2.  Do I have to send the previous tenant a certified mail to her previous address (as no new one was provided) that the contents will be removed?  3.  If I do the above, is there a time limit from the time the letter is sent?  I've never been in this situation before, so any help is appreciated.  Thank you.
