Search Locations

Modesto and surrounding cities and communities in Stanislaus County.

Bryon Elness's Bio

I had a very basic detector as a young kid and found joy in locating lost treasures (coins and toys mostly) buried in the ground. I got to utilize more advanced metal detectors while working for a municipal police department, using them to search for bullets, bullet casings, knives, weapons and other evidence. After almost three decades of service in the public safety sector, I was able to retire, but have maintained my interest in metal detecting. I have several hundred hours of experience using my two modern and advanced metal detectors in locating jewelry, coins, relics, cell phones, etc,. I possess the patience, skills and advanced metal detecting equipment needed to thoroughly search an area for your lost treasure.
