This is a copy/paste of the following announcement from the hunt's creator:
COWBOY SUSPENDED (it could have been found or compromised in some way. This is not a confirmation that it has been taken. Search at your own discretion until it can be investigated further. No "I Found It" has ever been reported)
It has been suspended due to reports from the field that the treasure was not at the location. The reports come with a caveat, the hunters reported from four separate days over the past two months. They reported using clues from the book that would have gotten someone to the general area. No hunter has ever reported, communicated or given information that they had solved clues in the book that are exact. Some clues were enough to find the treasure as it was placed so many years ago. No solved clue has ever been communicated that was a clue put in the book to stand the test of time.
With that said, if you did find it or know who did, remaining anonymous is great ~ and maybe even expected. If you could do a one-time account on social media/email or drop a line in some other way to let us know, it might save time. There is no telling when scheduling can be made to visit the site to give an accurate report back.
Thank you to all that have given any time or effort to this hunt. Much has been learned throughout this process and, the learning still continues. Better moving forward is all we can do. ~ Hunt happily
