A modern day treasure hunt led a Two Harbors boy to a wish of a lifetime Thursday.

At the age of three, Cooper Amesbury was diagnosed with a severe form of epilepsy, which has caused on-going problems.

The 11-year-old boy had no idea that his friends and family, along with “Make A Wish”, were going to grant him his wish of meeting Olaf at Disney World.

Cooper’s treasure hunt began at North Shore Community School.

His mother, Tera Amesbury, said Cooper has always had a vivid imagination and a love of pirates, which is why they planned a treasure hunt.

In total, Cooper had to figure out five clues to reveal where the treasure was hidden.

His first clue, at the school, led him to his great-grandmothers house.

From there, Cooper went to his Uncle Mark’s auto body shop and then to Minnehaha Elementary School, before ending up at the Edna G. Tugboat.

“Cooper is such a deserving little boy. He doesn’t ask for much at all. Just the smallest things mean the world to him,” said his mother, Tera.

Cooper’s wish to go to Disney World was granted.

“This will just be amazing for him. The kid in the candy store kind of thing he’ll love it,” said Tera.

Cooper, his parents, his two sisters, and his personal aide will be making the trip to Disney this March or April.
