Evan Cappon's Bio

As a kid, I had always been a collector of found items. As an adult I kept that tendency. Ten years ago, a metal detector raised my game. When I discovered that helping people find their lost items gave personal joy and a huge sense of satisfaction it became a passion. Today, I am available to help you find your lost valuables, treasures or necessities.

Thank goodness it wasn’t too far. After doing a sweep along the path he likely would have taken, […]

  • Thank you very much Evan! Your kindness is inspirational. God bless you! (2020)


    After searching for my ring late into the evening without success, I discovered Evan‘s services. I had originally called to leave a message but, despite the hour, Evan answered. I was amazed by his genuine care and concern, professionalism and complete willingness to help. He agreed to meet the next evening to help me search. Meeting in person, Evan was just as kind, sincere and helpful! He was thorough in his approach to finding my lost ring. Interestingly, while observing Evan, I noticed a glint of light on the road near where my car had been parked the previous night and it turned out to be my ring. Had Evan not agreed to help me search once again, and been so methodical, I would not have noticed it! Thank you very much Evan! Your kindness is inspirational. God bless you!
