  1. I had to look into this years ago because I thought that there has to be a lost and found department within the park. Every time I saw a park ranger being asked about Fenn’s treasure all they had to say was “It’s illegal to remove anything from the park”. The link below is what they should have said. 2.22 (c)(4) could be a real problem in time.
    Toby, thanks for bringing this issue to light.

    Here is what I found:

  2. Toby I have looked into this issue and agree that it is a complication in regards to the recovery and would Fenn choose a NPS area because of this. If you read a little more into this section of the law it also says that if the owner does not want the property or can not be found, the property is to be turned over to the finder. My computer that crashed last week had a shortcut on the desk top leading to this section of law. I’ll try to find it.
