Missing Person New Mexico Lynn Goldin

Lynn Goldin, 83, from Vancouver, Washington, left his home on August 29, 2016.  He was going to the Hogback, New Mexico area to search for treasure.  Authorities know he arrived in Farmington, New Mexico, and that he was at the Walmart on West Main Street on September 1, 2016.  He also bought gas at the Circle W on US Highway 64 in Waterflow, reports the KUNM.


Goldin’s son, Aaron reported his dad missing to the police after he had not heard from him.  He stated that his dad liked to travel to different states looking for unclaimed treasure and had been in New Mexico before.  They explored the mesas and canyons north of PNM Power Plant in search of unclaimed treasures. Aaron spoke with his dad on August 29 when his dad told him he was headed to New Mexico, but when his father hadn’t checked in with him by September 10 and he was unable to reach him by phone, he contacted the Farmington Police Department for assistance, Aaron told KRWN News.
