Alan Turing’s Silver Bars – Story From an Old Issue of Treasure Hunting?

Alan Turing’s Silver Bars – Story From an Old Issue of Treasure Hunting?

Anybody remember this story?

Alan Turing, the genius who cracked the German Enigma coding machines, was said to have converted all of his money into silver bars and then concealed them somewhere in Bletchley Park. At the end of the war, Turing returned to dig up his hoard using the map he had drawn when he buried the silver bars several years earlier, try as he might, he was never able to relocate them.

It seems a pretty unlikely story, but nevertheless, I am trying to find out where and when the story was originally published. I am pretty sure it appeared in an old issue of Treasure Hunting Magazine, but does anybody know which one?
