Case File: Beale's Treasure
Description: The Beale's treasure is $21 million of gold and silver believed to be hidden in Bedford County, Virginia.
History: In 1821, a miner named Thomas Beale claimed that he had hidden $21 million in gold and silver dubbed the "Beale's Treasure". He claimed that he had found the gold and silver in Colorado in 1818, but some people believe that Beale may not even exist. Three ciphers were later found that treasure hunters believe may be able to help locate the treasure. So far, only one of the ciphers has been decoded, but a treasure hunter claimed that he has decoded the second cipher and may know where the treasure is located.
Extra Notes: The case was featured as part of the special #7 episode that aired on May 18, 1988.
Results: Unresolved. A website claims that Beale's cyphers have been solved and a photograph is shown of the alleged opening to the treasure site, but it is unknown whether anyone has located any actual treasure.
