SANTA FE (AP) – Authorities have yet to uncover any new clues to the whereabouts of a Colorado man who went missing in northern New Mexico while looking for a $2 million cache of gold, jewels and artifacts.

A helicopter flight this week by New Mexico State Police and the state’s search and rescue team turned up nothing, but Randy Bilyeu’s relatives say they’re not giving up.

A father and grandfather, Bilyeu has been missing for more than a month since he set out in January in search of author Forrest Fenn’s treasure.

Bilyeu’s dog and raft were found along the Rio Grande. There has been no sign of him.

His ex-wife, Linda Bilyeu, says there are areas that can still be searched with drones. She says she’s thankful for the volunteer searchers but doesn’t want to put anyone in danger.
