Bob Washabaugh, of Johnstown, searched for old coins and buried treasures Saturday on the Army Corps of Engineers’ lots along the Conemaugh River near the Bairdstown Bridge.

The area is a favorite of his to search, because old homes along the river there have been washed away by flooding.

Washabaugh is most interested in coins from the 1800s, and said he has found more than 30 in that area.
