Luke Schlining - Testimonials

  • A new year miracle... (2022)


    Luke was a metal-detecting ninja! Can’t say thank you enough for the help! A new year miracle.

  • Again, thank you for helping my daughter and touching my heart today... (2021)


    I am the proud mom of the very uncoordinated Sam. I want you to know that opal ring on my daughters finger means as much to me as it does her. It is not the ring itself that holds value. It is the young woman whom wears it. She is my pride and joy and my love, respect and admiration for her grows stronger with every passing day. She is a constant reminder of all that I am and encourages me to continue to become more. She is one of my greatest accomplishments and the smile that my heart carries. When she was given the ring it was to remind her of all the above as she is everything I desire to be and I never want her to forget how remarkable she is. Thank you from the deepest depths of my heart for helping my daughter. While a ring is in truth nothing more than a possession with worthless monitory value regardless of it is a dime store purchase or 5 carrot stone from Tiffany’s, the meaning behind said possession is priceless. Again, thank you for helping my daughter and touching my heart today. Your return of her ring brought a moment of reflection on the hustle and bustle of this holiday season, what my daughter means to me and reminder that I have not expressed that enough to her lately. May your Christmas be just as remarkable to you and your family. – All my unwavering appreciation for you help, Krishna.

  • So thankful for Luke... (2021)


    So thankful for Luke finding the earing I considered totally lost. These earings are my mom’s and since she has passed the earings are special to me. Love ya

  • Thank you so much again it was truely a blessing. (2021)


    Can’t thank Luke enough for finding my wedding ring. My emotions when I lost my ring were overwhelming. I went to bed Saturday thinking I would never see it again. I woke in the morning to text from my niece saying maybe this is worth a try with a link to The Ring Finders.

    I have to say I really didn’t think it would work but why not try (what did I have to lose). After getting in touch with Luke he agreed to drop what he was doing and come to Priest Lake to search for my ring.

    I so appreciate his willingness to give up his Sunday to help me and much to my surprise and sincere gratefulness he found my wedding ring. Thank you so much again it was truely a blessing.

  • Thank you Luke so very much! (2021)


    Thank you Luke so very much! After searching for hours and hours we thought my ring had permanently become part of our vehicle. I can now celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary next month without feeling devastated about my lost ring!

  • I really recommend this guy to find what you lost. (2020)


    My husband and I went to walk around the neighborhood last Saturday and I lost my ring after we took the last picture! We were looking at that place for almost one hour with no success. Next day we went with hot water to see if we were lucky but we didn’t have it. Yesterday when Luke came, we went again and he found the ring in 3 minutes. It was amazing and we were so happy. It’s not just a ring, it has too much meaning for us. I can’t describe all I felt in that moment. I really recommend this guy to find what you lost. Thank you very much again Luke!! Blessings

  • Luke is now our hero and I will recommend him to anyone... (2020)


    So grateful that Luke was able to find my wedding ring in such a short period of time! My wife and I were worried that I would have to purchase a new ring to replace the one I lost. We both didn’t want to do that because it wouldn’t have had the same sentimental value. Anyways Luke is now our hero and I will recommend him to anyone that needs help finding a lost item.

  • Three cheers for Luke!!! (2019)


    Luke is a latter-day treasure hunter at distressed people's service! He arrived in no time and was tireless in his efforts at recovering our ring. When ordinary mortals (like us) would have lost (or in our case, had lost) all hope, he carried on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the sought object appeared to him, and we could then return home from our honeymoon not mourning, but rejoicing. Three cheers for Luke!!!

  • Call him right away if you lose something precious – he is the best of the best! (2018)


    Luke was my angel today! I have only been engaged for a month and this ring is so special to me. I’m beyond thankful that Luke answered the phone right away, came to meet me within the hour, and persisted in the search even when we had long passed the area where I thought the ring would be. I’ll never be able to repay his generosity and he made a truly awful day so much brighter by being kind (and obviously finding my ring!). Call him right away if you lose something precious – he is the best of the best!

  • I recommend you 100% to anyone in need. (2018)


    I want to thank TheRingFinders sooo much. This had been weighing heavy on me, thinking my wife’s wedding ring was long gone. I try my best to do all the good things a good husband would do, but when this all happened, I felt weak and slightly disappointed in myself for not being able to find it.

    I did borrow a cheaper metal detector from a friend, but not knowing truly how it works it all seemed for not.

    Unless you know what you are doing, let people who enjoy this as a hobby/ work interest help you find what you are looking for.

    Again, thank you very much RingFinders and I recommend you 100% to anyone in need.

  • wow awesome thank u a million ! (2018)

  • Luke was an answer to prayer! (2018)


    Luke was an answer to prayer! After spending countless hours searching for my ring, Luke found it in less than 10 minutes. Luke expressed happiness right along with me! Luke took a hobby and made it about other people, helping others and never taking advantage of them. In a very short time he revealed tremendous character and a true caring for other people.


  • Thanks to luke I have my ring back... (2017)


    I was really upset about losing my ring and thought I’d never find it again. I have heard how hard it is to use a metal detector so when I stumbled upon Luke’s page I knew I had to call him. He came out and was very knowledgeable about what he was doing and was also very nice! He knew right when he detected my ring before he even pulled it up out of the snow. Thanks to luke I have my ring back and I will definitely let friends and family know about him, he’s truly one of a kind!

  • Don’t ever stop what you’re doing, you are the best! (2017)



    Thank you again for your quick and professional service. You took the time to come out at night knowing the roads were extremely icy and dangerous, and we could not be more grateful. We know who we will recommend if any of our friends or family find themselves in the same situation.

    Don’t ever stop what you’re doing, you are the best!


  • Thanks Luke we love you from the bottom of our hearts. (2017)


    YOU are a gift from God. You brought joy into a very sad man’s face. I have love for you and I don’t know how to begin to say thank you. Please don’t stop doing what you are doing. You blessed us. Thanks Luke we love you from the bottom of our hearts. The Galindos

  • You can bet I’ll be recommending Luke’s services to anyone in the Spokane/CDA (2014)


    Thank goodness for Ring Finders and good people. Luke was eager to drive 45 mins to come look for my ring and he was equal parts professional, friendly, and caring. I had never met Luke before but a Google search brought me to his Ring Finders page.

    Visibility was less than 4 inches and it was amazing that he was able to find my ring considering the conditions he described above, not to mention the ring sat on the bottom in the muck and slime for 7 days before I had a day off to go out there.

    The lake bottom is littered with old cans, bottles, coins, etc and I was actually getting fairly discouraged after sitting on the dock for 1.5 hours or so, getting sun burnt and feeling bad about my lost wedding band.

    Luke was positive the whole time and like he said, after taking a 15 minute break to regroup, he picked up the signal and somehow got it back to the shallows, basically working blind, without dropping it.

    At first I was in disbelief and I think he celebrated more than me for the first few seconds! The people on the public dock 10 yards away must have thought we were crazy jumping up and down and high-fiving, hooping and hollering. When we told them what the commotion was about, they were yelling too! It was a great time.

    You can bet I’ll be recommending Luke’s services to anyone in the Spokane/CDA area that needs this type of help. Couldn’t have asked for a nicer guy to work with. Good work! (and thanks for getting my wife off my back!)
