We know that the famous Forrest Fenn treasure has been found. We've also seen the pictures. Now, we have confirmation that the treasure was indeed found in Wyoming after all.

Here's a statement from Forrest himself that was shared on his official website this week:

Many of the searchers for my treasure had solves that seemed to neatly fit the clues in my poem. Then when the finder found and retrieved the treasure, other searchers wondered how close they had been to the right spot. Because I promised the finder I would not reveal who found it or where, I have remained mostly silent.

However, the finder understands how important some closure is for many searchers, so today he agreed that we should reveal that the treasure was found in Wyoming. Until he found the treasure, the treasure had not moved in the 10 years since I left it there on the ground, and walked away.

Perhaps today’s announcement will bring some closure to those whose solves were in New Mexico, Colorado, or Montana.

To all of those who did not find the treasure, we hope that you got some enjoyment from the chase.

There you have it. In Forrest's own words, the treasure was in Wyoming all along. If you searched here, you were on the right track.

In case you missed it, Forrest was kind enough to allow us permission to share pics of the treasure a few weeks ago.
