What do I do with UPS packages that aren't for me?

Today the UPS guy dropped off some ground packages at my door. Problem is, they for the former occupant of the house, not me. I shouted after him that the packages weren't for me, but he couldn't be bothered to stop. (He HAD to have heard me.) I don't know how to contact the former occupant to tell her I have her packages, and I don't know the new address to tell UPS to send them to. I tried looking on the UPS webpage, and it isn't much help. They don't look like anything vital (a small package each from Target.com and Amazon). What should I do with these things? Hang on to them a few days and see if the former occupant comes knocking on the door? What if she never claims them?
