"Man Who Hid Treasure Worth Millions in Rocky Mountains Says It’s Been Found"
"I can confirm it’s been found," Fenn told TODAY. "It was found by a man from back East, but he’s shy."
"I don't want to share too much information right now"
At least two thrill-seekers have died in search of the loot, and in 2017, New Mexico state police called on Fenn to end the game after a pastor looking for the treasure was found dead along the Rio Grande, just west of Santa Fe
Addressing the pressure to call off the hunt, Fenn told the New York Times at the time: "If someone drowns in the swimming pool we shouldn't drain the pool. We should teach people to swim."
