Treasure hunters set off to discover the "Nazi gold train" earlier this summer, but The Washington Post reports that their findings did not go as planned.

Experts say that the 70-year-old train thought to be sealed inside one of the tunnels built by slave laborers for the Nazis and carrying loot such as gold, jewels and weapons in the Polish city of Walbrzych during World War II does not exist.

Piotr Koper and Andreas Richter, the amateur explorers who claimed to have located the train months ago were challenged by scientists from Krakow University of Science and Technology who stated that after a month of magnetic and gravitational surveys, there is no trace of the treasure train.

"There may be a tunnel," said project leader Janusz Madej, "But there is no train."

Despite admitting that the two Polish treasure hunters are only hobbyists, Koper is sticking by their claims and noted that "there can't be a mistake."

"We carried out similar examinations in many other locations, but we have never encountered anything like this," Koper said, according to The New York Times. "There is no way these shapes are of natural origin."

"It's human to make a mistake," Madej responded. "But it's foolish to stand by it."

Multiple reports have cropped up throughout the years regarding treasures in the Nazi complex's ruins, yet nothing has been discovered.

The treasure hunters said they based their claims of the treasure train off of a map drawn by a man on his death bed, but whether or not city officials will continue with the investigation is unknown.

According to the Post, the disagreement between the experts and the treasure hunters has left city officials in a quandary.

"They can move forward with expensive plans to lower cameras into the supposed tunnel
through holes in the ground. Or they can chalk it up as yet another unproven rumor and move on. Wait for another claim to arise, as they inevitably do."
