Treasure hunter asks OK to dig in state park





A treasure hunter wants permission to dig in a state forest in northern Pennsylvania for a cache of gold he says was lost by a Union convoy transporting it to the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia during the Civil War.
The legend has circulated for decades about the half-ton of lost gold - worth about $20 million at today's prices.

Dennis Parada says he believes he has found the site of the missing treasure in an Elk County state forest and is fighting to get state permission to dig it up.
