Am I allowed to pack/box my ex-roommate's belongings?

Question Details: My roommate left with no indication of their departure. They did not call or text me or any other method of communication. I tried emailing about her having 60 days to remove her items including bed, TV and clothing. I have plans to utilize this extra space as an office. Are there any legalities preventing me from neatly packing up her bedroom? I don't know if any mailing address for her or any family, her dad which is next of kin is a truck driver and stays in motels locally 2 nights a week for his off days and they always differ. What are my options?
