    I was thinking along the same lines.
    Probably melted it & sold it before claiming he lost it

    My claim neighbor has an SUV with a spare on the back and he left his concentrates on it after packing up his camp one time.
    He remembered it was there a few hours later getting back to denver of course it was hours behind him probably exploded on the highway.

    He also one time had a group camping out and panning there and as he was bending over at some point in the day, his vial slipped out of his breast pocket somewhere in the creek.
    He had all his best gold in there and had it to show the beginners haha.
    Hes a guy that has either made some bad choices or he has bad luck!

    on the news it was revealed the old man had it in his glove box all along, he never lost it. Just misplaced, must have forgotten it was there. He found it though obviously.
