$250 claimed for Egg # 3

Christina Ambriz and her son, Javier, found Egg #3 on Wednesday stapled to the sign at the entrance to the Sevier County Airport west of De Queen.  Christina said she was searching near Dierks after the clue Tuesday. Because Wednesday's on -air clue told seekers to go  in the opposite direction, she thought Friday's “train” clue might also be misleading, so she decided to look at the airport.


Mario & Felicia Gonzalez and their sons Mario and Mason turned in Egg #2 Monday afternoon (4/8) to claim the $250 Prize Pool. Felicia said she realized where the egg was hidden after the Bonus Clue Monday morning, so she sent her husband to retrieve it.    Mario found Egg #2 near Eagletown in McCurtain County, OK beside the old Tiner School building. It was inside the old tire next to the utility pole. They waited until after school to turn the egg in so the whole family could be in the picture.
