One of my treasure chest caches that had gone missing last year just turned up. It was found during a river clean-up on May 10th. Thanks to Mathman and Rsplash40 for pointing it out.

One of those moving caches, hey?

Better use some gorilla glue on the bottom next time!

I'm sure the clean up crew had a moment of excitement!

It can be fixed.

Awesome. Did you notify the clean up crew to try and get the cache back, Brian?

No, that was a week ago. I'm sure it's in the landfill by now.

How did it end up in the river anyways? Did a muggle take it and ditch it in the river or did the cache area get flooded and it floated to the river?

I assume it was muggled. The island it was on used to be remote and inaccessable. Flooding two years ago created a huge new sandbar right next to the island and it became a party spot for weekend boaters.
