John Townsand's Bio

Being a metal detectorist is my absolute passion! I have been metal detecting for 40 years now, and in that time, I have acquired a wealth of knowledge and equipment dedicated to this. I am friendly, fair, and I have a great big heart. I served in the Air Force and the Army, so I am a hardy guy, I can search in any weather or location. My love of science, and my driving, incessant desire to locate items makes me the man to help you out, especially if the item is sentimental to you, I love returning these precious items to their owners, there is no greater satisfaction!

John Townsand - Testimonials

  • I will happily recommend him to anyone who has lost a valuable or dear ring. (2021)


    One day in mid April, I discovered that I had lost my late husband's ring that I wore on my thumb. I looked everywhere in the house and back yard but no ring. A friend found an online listing for John Townsand, so I called him in Las Cruzes. He wasn't able to come to Albuquerque for several weeks, but assured me he would come find my ring! He arrived early on May 11 with his equipment and set to work. After 4 hours of searching my acre plus, he found the ring in the dirt behind the garage. I would never have found it!

    John is a sincere, polite gentleman. He works fast and methodically. I will happily recommend him to anyone who has lost a valuable or dear ring. He promised he would find it and he did! HG
