I will do my best to reunite you with your lost item. I do not give up easily and I will try upwards of 3 times.

Follow this checklist to better your chances of getting it back!

1. Do not put it all over social media! There are untrustworthy detectorists that look for easy scores and they will go out to find it and they will keep it!

2. Line yourself up with focal points of where you are/were when it was lost. Ex. Houses/buildings/landscapes

3.Get GPS coordinates from your phone if possible.

4. Note the time of day when it was lost.

5. Call/Message me!!

  • Matt’s skill was quite impressive. (2020)


    Thanks again! I thought there was no chance of finding the ring considering how rough the surf was but Matt made quick work of a tough problem.

    He was on-site by the next low tide, and already searching before I could come out to meet him. I am very lucky to have my ring back, but Matt’s skill was quite impressive.
