Paul Nolan's Bio

Employed full time with State DOT. I have been finding and returning lost property found on the metro highway system to folks for over 30 years. I have spent 25 years with Fire and EMS services and now retired. I have never advertised my metal detecting or recovery services before, it has all been just word of mouth - until now. If you have something lost and have a good idea on the location – I can help.
