"Treasure hunt: NC authorities search for $4M in missing gold."
WILSON, N.C. - The FBI and the Wilson County Sheriff's Office said an estimated $4 million worth of gold was reported stolen during an armed robbery on Interstate 95 over the weekend.
At around 6:50 p.m. Sunday, Wilson County deputies responded to a report of an armed robbery on northbound I-95 near mile marker 114.
Authorities said two armed security guards working for Transvalue Inc. of Miami were transporting gold and silver from Miami to Massachusetts when they began to have mechanical problems.
The sheriff's office said when the security guards pulled over they were approached by three armed men in a white-colored van. The robbers ordered the victims to get down on the ground.
The robbers then tied the security guards' hands behind their back backs and made them walk into the woods, authorities said.
Authorities said the robbers took several barrels of gold worth an estimated $4 million and fled the scene.
