If people do stupid things, you are right, it's on them. But if someone "says" they hid a treasure, and the clues happen to be in a book that sells for over $60.00, then it's a big red flag. If it's a joke he should come clean. If it's been found, and he knows it, he should tell everyone. He is a smart guy and it would have been quite easy for him to have had sealed legal papers drawn up confirming the existence / placement of a genuine treasure. He could have photographed the contents. This entire set-up is full of holes. Regardless of liability, any deaths or injuries associated with this stunt should haunt him.

    I hope they find this guy alive. If not, we will see where this goes. I seriously doubt Fenn will let the death of someone just slide by. It's time to come clean.
    Well, one person has already died searching for Fenn's treasure. That was last year, if I remember right. I think he was searching along the San Juan river. I never heard that Fenn commented on his death.

    I like that theory best!... Or, Fenn can call me and let me know where it is and this will all be over (:

    He did comment when people began digging up old outhouses looking for clues re: "Under the brown." He made it clear it was not under an old poop pile. Maybe the old bottles people found were actually worth something!

    For what it's worth, and slightly off topic, I have not spent a lot of time researching this, I believe the person who thinks outside the box will find the treasure if it exists. He did say once that when it's found "the location will be obvious."

    X marks the spot.

    Pastor Searching For Forrest Fenn Treasure Missing

    Fenn has stated many times the "safety first" rule applies searching for his treasure. He placed the treasure where any child or elderly person can reach it without fear of risking life or limb. That precludes mountain tops, cliff sides and bottoms of raging rivers.

    Also, Fenn is no fool. Like most successful businessmen he is likely "lawyered up" in this endeavor. States have laws governing "contests" , "prizes" have to be certified..i.e. confirmed to exist. I imagine the treasure itself is insured to protect it from various scenarios like being kidnapped etc

    The families of persons who have died searching for his treasure have an extremely difficult road to challenging Fenn for culpability in their loved one's deaths.

    Edit: just saw on news few moments ago the pastor was found dead in the river several miles downstream from where his backpack & climbing gear

    I have one location, not far from me, in Yellowstone Park, which I think meets all the clues. My buddy and I went up there a couple of years ago, but didn't have time to walk in and look. And, we haven't made time since either. Neither of us needs the money right now, so if we're right, it'll keep. In the meantime, it's fun reading people's ideas on where it is.

    Also, Fenn has said he checks whether the treasure has been found on a regular basis. To me, he likely has a GPS or radio device cached at the treasure site that activates once the box is opened. Obviously if Fenn travels to the site himself the game is up as his house is under surveillance by obsessed treasure hunters.. Or perhaps he has a friend that travels to the site incognito.

    People have free will. I don't need the local sheriff to tell me if I should treasure hunt, or prospect, or anything else in the outdoors. I sure as hell don't need the nanny state to protect me.

    Consider that gambling halls and casinos have destroyed countless more lives than Fenn's treasure hunt.

    The pink haired people are click-baiting the whole thing - as usual, with hysteria and without the facts. Their game plan is the constant methodical erosion of free will in all aspects of society. Drip, drip, drip. "Be afraid. Stay at home on Facebook. We'll tell you what you can and can't do. Trust us, we know what's best."

    What liability? People write fiction all the time. Even on T'Net. To disprove Alice In Wonderland you would
    need to jump down a rabbit hole.

    Anyone "victimized" by searching for this prize, hiking the Superstitions seeking the Lost Dutchman, diving for Spanish treasure ships or hunting a thousand other lost mines and hidden treasures is acting on his own volition. Same goes for folks hiking wilderness trails, rock climbing, sky-diving, surfing, motorcycle riding and any number of other potentially hazardous activities. Hopefully, Mr Wallace will be located alive. If not, condolences to his family are in order. That said, I for one don't wish to live my life in a nanny state - I prefer to make my own decisions and accept their consequences.

    Spot on Ryano. Not to mention he was a sick man with cancer and age also being a factor. Follow and understand the clues and you can find it. But perhaps it has already been found. Since the last line says go quietly. Meaning to continue the story for future generations
