Rich Hageney's Bio

Now 54 years old, I have been metal detecting since I was 10 years old. Having returned countless treasures over the years I have found returning these items as thrilling as finding them. I am passionate about the hobby and enjoy teaming up with other enthusiasts to go "hunting" together. I have become 100% confident in my ability to locate lost items with my experience and new high end equipment. If you lost something of value in your yard, or at the beach or someplace else feel free to give me a call or drop me an email. I look forward to helping you!

  • These guys will find it if you can’t! I promise you! (2020)


    “I had such an amazing experience today when John and his friend Rich came to look for my ring! I had lost all hope I’ve had someone else come to search for it before and I had such low expectations. I was just going to try it as a last resort but gosh am I glad I did! They started searching and I was watching for a bit just to see if they would get anything quickly. I then went to the grocery store with the kiddos because I needed to grab a few things. Rich texted me to see if I was coming back soon and told him I was checking out at the register. Came home and John told me that rich wanted to ask me a question. I said of course with baby in hand walking down the yard I saw John turn his GoPro on and at first I was kind confused then I come down and Rich walks up and asks to see my picture of my ring again. Then as soon as I show him he goes looks a lot like this one doesn’t it? And I full blown cried. I am so thankfully for them today. They did an absolutely amazing job and I am so beyond thankful. I cannot express it enough!! These guys will find it if you can’t! I promise you! Thank you again so much.”

  • Clearly we called the right guy and I can't thank you enough! (2017)


    "Thank you Rich for returning my irreplaceable 20 year fireman service ring. After serving 30 years with Ladder 17 in Philly I thought for sure the ring was a goner. Your confidence, experience and determination while on the hunt gave us a lot of hope. Clearly we called the right guy and I can't thank you enough!"
