Are Milo and Linda human ?

Is the Linda in the first sentence the same Linda mentioned in the secon sentence ?

Does it matter what the object is ?

Does the object still exist by the time Linda starts to search for the object ?

Does it matter what room is being searched ?

Is this a room in a normal sense ?

How much does Linda know about the object she is looking for, other than it is gold?
What doesn't Linda know?
The Exact object?
The shape of the object?
the colour of the object?
the nature of the object?
the size of the object?
the weight of the object?

Is the position of the object within the room fixed, or is it moving - particulrly when Linda is looking for it?
