This story here reminds me of a similar one that happened in Tucson, AZ: A Piper PA-32-301T, N4575L, went missing on 29 August 1984 after departing KCRQ (Palomar) CA bound for Houston, TX. It was found by hikers on 30 August 1997 in the Rincon Mountains east of Tucson at the 7,500' level. In the wreckage was a black satchel containing @$50,000 in decomposed cash and a .45 pistol along with the skeletons of the pilot and pax.
