Cannot return the Haq Mahr to ex-wife

I was married for a period of 2 years. Out of the blue when I was not expecting my wife left me to America with her father. I tried contacting her but there was no reply. I filed for divorce, and eventually I got it even though she did not sign the paperwork. At the time I wrote her a letter to send her haq maher (her dowry – some jewelry) to her, as she left it behind. but she did not reply. I asked her to come and collect it from my home.
