(CBS NEWS) — Police in northern New Mexico say they’ve recovered the body of a Colorado pastor who disappeared last week while searching for buried treasure.

The fortune, hidden somewhere in the Rocky Mountains, has lured many treasure hunters. And Paris Wallace, of Grand Junction, may be the second person to die in the search.

Police say Wallace told family members he was searching for a buried treasure nearly 50 miles north of Santa Fe, New Mexico. But when he reportedly failed to show up for a meeting last Wednesday, they grew concerned.
