CBS 48 Hours: “The Fenn Treasure” Preview 

In 2010 eccentric millionaire Forrest Fenn launched a treasure hunt when he announced that he had hidden a chest worth an estimated $1 million in the Rocky Mountains. Now, 48 HOURS reveals new details, rarely seen photos and exclusive interviews in the sometimes-deadly search for the treasure in “The Fenn Treasure”!
Reported by Tony Dokoupil, co-host of CBS THIS MORNING, the broadcast explores the passion that drove people to join the search and the risks they took trying to find it. Dokoupil’s reporting was instrumental in exposing the treasure hunt to a national audience in 2012 when he wrote a lengthy article for Newsweek magazine. Tens of thousands of people set out to search for the treasure—some of them obsessively. Five ultimately lost their lives in the process.
The chest was found in 2020, just three months before Fenn died.
The broadcast features an exclusive interview with a treasure hunter who was stranded with a friend on a mountaintop where the friend froze to death. Also featured is an exclusive interview with a medical nurse who helped rescue a Jack Russell terrier named Leo who survived 10 days in freezing temperatures after his owner died while seeking the treasure. The nurse later adopted Leo. Additionally, the broadcast includes interviews with treasure hunters like Sacha Dent, who joined so many others captivated by Fenn’s challenge.
