Woman continues treasure hunt after finding note


Woman continues treasure hunt after finding note

QUINCY, Ill. � A western Illinois postal worker's hunt for supposedly buried treasure continues in Springfield. Patty Henken launched the search recently when she was refinishing an antique chair and found a key in an envelope with a note promising $250 in U.S. gold coins buried in a chest in Springfield.

On the envelope were the typewritten words "Finders Keepers." The typewritten note detailed a Springfield location where the gold coins were supposedly buried.

Henken was given permission to dig on the lot after agreeing with the property owner that anything found would be split between them.

Searches over the weekend with a backhoe didn't turn up anything, but Henken isn't giving up the chase.
