A canoe trip has been launched to look for a missing treasure hunter. Drones will be used this weekend.
Randy Bilyeu, of Broomfield, disappeared in January while hunting for a $2 million cache of gold, jewels and artifacts in a rugged part of New Mexico.
The recent discovery of a backpack on a rugged slope at Bandelier National Monument has re-energized the search.
Based on what's inside, there's a strong indication the pack belonged to Bilyeu but authorities have yet to make an official determination.
As they wait for word, volunteers are focused on areas outside the monument.
A canoe trip was launched on the Rio Grande Thursday.
Other volunteers are reviewing hundreds of images, and hours of footage, recorded over the last four months, hoping to find a single clue.
Thursday marked four months since Bilyeu set out in his raft in search for the treasure. Ex-wife Linda Bilyeu says the family isn't giving up.
