Michigan Jeweler Says He’s Buried $1 Million In Riches For A Treasure Hunt

A Michigan jeweler going out of business after a months-long coronavirus closure says he has buried about $1 million worth of valuables like gold, diamonds and more throughout the state for a massive treasure hunt.

Perri said he was inspired by Forrest Fenn, a Sante Fe art dealer who is said to have hid a trove worth millions in the Rocky Mountains that he announced last month was finally found by an anonymous treasure hunter. It took more than a decade and a reported 350,000 people are believed to have gone searching for it. Perri’s quests likely won’t be quite so intense—he doesn’t expect any to last longer than a week, he told Fox 2 Detroit.
