- Land/Shallow Water Search
Cost For My Service
I work on a ''Reward Basis’’. If I find your lost item, I’ll accept what it's worth to you and what you can afford. I have a nominal call-out fee of $20.00 to cover fuel expenses if the item is not found (maybe more or less depending on your location).
Salt and fresh water up to 5 feet deep, beaches, yards, fields, snow banks. If the search area is not on your property or on public property that has no restrictions on metal detecting, you will need to provide written permission from the owner or proper authority to the effect that I am authorized to do a search on the property.
I search primarily on Upper to mid-Cape Cod.

Labor Day ended on a depressing note for John, who lost his year-old wedding ring in chest-deep water a couple of hundred feet offshore. I received a call from him in early evening, asking if I was ‘the ring finder’ and if I could search for his ring. I of course said that I would, […]
Laura found The Ring Finders online and called me for assistance. Her husband Paul had given her his wedding ring to hold when he went for a swim (a wise decision), but unfortunately the ring somehow slipped into the dry sand in the area where they were enjoying the beach. They tried searching for the […]
As I was carrying my metal-detecting gear to search the beach for Rory’s husband’s wedding ring yesterday (my primary mission) I had a chance encounter with Brendan, who was just leaving. He half-jokingly asked that if I found it, would I return the wedding ring that he’d lost there two weeks previously. Well, here was […]
Rory’s post on Facebook alerted me to the fact that her husband had lost his wedding band at the beach two days prior. I contacted her and we set up a time to meet just before low tide, similar to the situation when the ring was lost. It was a beautiful afternoon when we arrived […]
Sometimes miracles do happen! I was alerted by my daughter about a lost-ring post on the Fabulous Falmouth Facebook page. Allie posted a picture of a wedding ring that her husband Michael lost 2 years ago on Woodneck Beach in Falmouth, in hopes that someone would find and return it. The ring had been lost […]

Thank you so much Brian for getting our ring back to us! This was such a miracle and cool surprise. You are a blessing!
Huge thank you to Brian for doing what I thought was impossible and re-uniting me with the ring. (2022)
I lost my gold wedding band and got in touch with Brian late in the evening to see if he would take the job. He said yes, but there was a huge storm overnight and I was only able to meet him the following morning to give him a search area on land and in the water before I had to leave for home.
He took in all the info, made judgements about where it was most likely to be and got to work. As we left he was in the ocean working back and forth in his search grid. When I got an email later that day that he found it I was flabbergasted. I couldn’t stop smiling. Huge thank you to Brian for doing what I thought was impossible and re-uniting me with the ring.
You were our miracle and we are so grateful to you and your passion for wanting to help people... (2022)
Thank you so much for finding my husband’s wedding ring. As I said when we spoke on the phone after you found it, I knew you were the one that was going to find it.
We had both been heartbroken over the loss of this sentimental piece of jewelry all week but were hopeful that somehow, someway it could be found.
You were our miracle and we are so grateful to you and your passion for wanting to help people find their lost treasures.
Thank you again for your help! (2022)
Thank you so much for finding my dad’s ring! Our whole family was hugely impressed, and we enjoyed meeting you. Thank you again for your help!
I was impressed with your attention to detail and methodical searching... (2022)
Wow! I’m so grateful you found it. I felt such a fool for losing my wedding ring in the sea. Jo and I were realistic that the chance of you discovering it was slim, especially considering the size of the search area in 5ft deep water.
You were so kind to come quickly and meet me at the beach and I was impressed with your attention to detail and methodical searching. I was thrilled when you called the next day to tell me you had rescued my ring from the depths of Cape Cod waters.
I’m so grateful to you and Ringfinders. Your perseverance and genius with a metal detector has inspired us to buy one for our family.
Thank you again!
Our family will never forget you. You made our summer! (2022)
Thank you very much for finding and returning our ring Brian. When the ring was lost back in 2018 my wife and I thought it was gone forever. We searched the beach for days with no luck. When Laura saw your Facebook post, 4 years later, she was speechless. It seemed too good to be true but within an hour the ring was back on my finger.
Our family will never forget you. You made our summer!
