  • Land/Shallow Water Search

Cost For My Service

I work on a reward basis, that means you pay what it's worth to you and what you can afford to have me find your lost ring.

I have a call-out fee of $20 if the ring is not found, this covers my fuel expenses. We can discuss this when you call. If the property is pre-1960 the costs might be waived pending authorization to check the entire property, on my schedule, after the item is found.

Search Types

Metallic items, such as jewelry, coins, watches, keys, tools, family heirlooms, historic items, shut off valves, property markers, septic tank covers, etc. on Land, sand and water up to 5 feet, also parks and yards. If the lost item is on a property that doesn’t belong to the person who lost the item, it’s their responsibility to gain written permission from the land/property owner.

Search Locations

I will travel within 60 miles of Manhattan, Kansas (Riley/Pottawatimie County) / Junction City, Kansas (Geary County) / Topeka, Kansas (Shawnee county)

Steven Hendricks's Bio

I’ve been metal detecting longer then I’d like to admit, but Ive been most active since 2015 searching for lost History, Relics and Heirlooms beneath our feet. I run Kansas Relics and Recovery youtube metal detecting channel and love pushing my Minelabs Equinox 800 to its capabilities in hopes to re-unite that lost item with its beloved owner!
