A few years ago, Forrest Fenn, an art collector and antiques dealer in New Mexico, hid a treasure chest filled with $3 million in gold nuggets, ancient jade carvings, and other artifacts somewhere in the Rocky Mountains north of Santa Fe. In 2010, he self-published a book of clues as to its location, in the form of a poem, and tens of thousands of people have gone looking for it since. Now, one of them has been missing for almost a month.
