  • Land/Shallow Water Search

Cost For My Service

For some areas I have a call out fee of $25.00 to cover my gas expense.

Depending on the working conditions and time spent searching, I’m happy to accept what you feel my service is worth to you, based on what you can afford. I especially appreciate “rewards” – because that means I found your item!

Search Types

Water, snow banks, beaches, parks, yards or wherever you lost your valuable item. If in water over 5 ft deep I can contact a diver for you.

Search Locations

Primarily West Michigan, but I will also travel state-wide if necessary.

Dave Boyer's Bio

I have been metal detecting seriously for about 10 years and had a lot of experience helping another Ringfinder before I joined this site.

I am retired and available at your request.

I prefer a text or e-mail from you so I get all the correct information on contact name(s), phone numbers, address etc.

If your item is lost in a public place or Lake Michigan, contact me as soon as possible. Others may find your item and Lake Michigan swallows items in a few hours never to be seen again.

  • Dave felt like an angel to me... (2023)


    Dave felt like an angel to me. It is a very special ring to me. Though had been married for 5 years but my husband got me this ring when we were still dating 8 years back. Felt real sad losing it. I searched for the ring for like 2 hrs in the marked area again and again and had almost lost hope when we got the idea of taking help from a ring finder(This is the first time for us and we had no clue that they are real). I was in disbelief till he found my ring. So much happy. He saved me from a ruined vacation. Thanks a ton Dave.

  • I gotta say Dave and Gregg are the real deal!!! (2019)


    Steve here! I gotta say Dave and Gregg are the real deal!!! After 5 long days of my chain sitting at the bottom of Lake Michigan I was ready to accept that it was gone! But Tuesday night I randomly came across Ringfinders and Dave and called, and spoke with Dave the following morning. The very next day he and Gregg where on a mission. I liked how he acted with a sense of urgency and how dedicated he was to finding my chain. I am still In shock they found it! Along with all my friends and family. When he showed up at my job and handed me my chain, I skipped the handshake and gave the guy a hug! Haha! That’s how happy I was! These guys are legit! And masters of this craft! Have 2 be 2 find a chain in Lake Michigan in 8 inches of sand 5 days later in 15 or 20 minutes! Thanx again Dave and Gregg! I really am grateful for your help and glad I came across your website!
