Steve Wheeler's Bio

Originally from NH, I moved to Hawaii in 1992 as an instructor for the US Air Force. I’m an experienced metal detectorist and have detected in many environments to include fresh water lakes and rivers, salt water, parks and private yards (permission a must!).

Should an underwater search be required for the recovery I am a PADI certified Master SCUBA diver certified by PADI. I’m semi-retired (substitute teacher) and have plenty of time to devote to the recovery of your lost item.

I’ve made several recoveries, sometimes referred to as rescues, of lost personal items and have been fortunate to return those items to their owners. With a little hard work and a pinch of luck we’ll be able to return your items to you!
