Thousands of people have ventured into the Rocky Mountains searching for the treasure chest filled with gold and diamonds, estimated to be worth over $1 million.

It was hidden in 2010 by Forrest Fenn, an 89-year-old art and antiquities collector, to inspire people to explore nature and give hope to people affected by the recession.

Clues leading to the treasure's location were included in a poem published in Fenn's autobiography "The Thrill of the Chase."

Fenn estimated that as many as 350,000 people from all over the world went hunting for the treasure.

On June 6, 2020, Fenn confirmed on his website that the treasure has been found.

"It was under a canopy of stars in the lush, forested vegetation of the Rocky Mountains and had not moved from the spot where I hid it more than 10 years ago," he said. "I do not know the person who found it, but the poem in my book led him to the precise spot. I congratulate the thousands of people who participated in the search and hope they will continue to be drawn by the promise of other discoveries. So the search is over. Look for more information and photos in the coming days."
