New clue revealed in hunt for hidden treasure worth millions

The multimillionaire art collector who hid a treasure chest worth millions revealed a new clue Friday to the loot he’s giving away, but the hint doesn’t appear to narrow the possibilities much.

“The treasure is hidden higher than 5,000 feet above sea level,” Forrest Fenn told TODAY viewers. Find the nine previous clues for the treasure here

That leaves a lot of ground to cover in mountainous New Mexico, where Fenn lives and the treasure is presumably buried. The average elevation in the state is 5,700 feet.

“I’m not going to put an X on the map for you,” he said when asked for more hints.

Fenn, 82, said life has “been hectic” since he first described his treasure Wednesday on TODAY. Heavy online traffic caused Fenn’s website to crash as hopeful treasure finders sought to read a poem he penned that contains nine clues.

 The art collector said he buried the treasure to help create an adventure that would get Americans off the couch.

"Get your kids out in the countryside, take them fishing and get them away from their little hand-held machines," he told TODAY earlier this week.

The poem Fenn wrote, “The Thrill of the Chase,” is also the title of his self-published autobiography.

Apparently this guy hid a fortune of it in a treasure chest when he thought he was dying and put clues to where it was in a poem.

People have been trying to find it for a year with no luck...so he gave another clue on TV this morning.

Lol, there are gold in the mountains by Las Cruces and Capitan. :) Those rumors are different than this treasure though.. as a kid camping around in the southern mountains, I can understand these rumor, which the rich Spanish and Native American History. Some claimed the treasures to be in the mountains owned by the govt, around white sands missle range.

Actually this guy says he put it out there last year so someone could find it....so this is a new chest of gold.

I find it a very interesting idea.
