SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Famed art and antiquities collector Forrest Fenn says the man who found his hidden treasure last month located it in Wyoming.


The 89-year-old Fenn filled a bronze chest with gold, jewels and other valuables worth an estimated $2 million and hid it a decade ago somewhere in the Rocky Mountain wilderness.
A man who did not want his name released found the chest and Fenn says he promised the finder that he wouldn’t reveal who found it or where.


But Fenn now says “the finder understood how important some closure is for many searchers,” so he agreed to reveal the treasure was found in Wyoming., according to the Santa Fe New Mexican.
Fenn, a Santa Fe resident, had posted clues to the treasure’s whereabouts online and in a 24-line poem that was published in his 2010 autobiography “The Thrill of the Chase.”


Hundreds of thousands hunted in vain across remote corners of the U.S. West for the treasure. Many quit their jobs to dedicate themselves to the search and others depleted their life savings. At least four people died searching for it.
