Is it worth trying to get my security deposit back?

I never got my security deposit back from my landlord when I moved out of my last apartment in the summer of 2011, nor did I receive (as Missouri law
apparently demands) any sort of written notice as to why I didn't receive it. For various stupid reasons I have yet to attempt to contact my former landlord about this. Missouri landlord-tenant law doesn't seem to say anything about a statute of limitations on this -- is it worth returning to? I could certainly use the money, but if my chances of recovering it are low to nonexistent then obviously I value the time more.
