  • Land/Shallow Water Search
  • Diver/Underwater Search

Cost For My Service

My call-out fee can depend on numerous factors such as; weather, type of land/water, travel distance, ground conditions, and more. I will quote on a case-by-case situation based on all the relevant factors, but I try to keep it affordable and fair.

If you need private property searches to look for lost treasures, such as Grampa’s silver, civil war gold, and dropped Spanish coins, I can work either on a percentage or for an hourly fee we agree to ahead of time.

When calling please leave a voice mail if I do not answer immediately and I will call you back as quickly as I can. If I am in a situation where I am unable to answer the phone, I will always try to call back as quickly as I can as I know your matter is time sensitive, to get me to your location as fast as possible. I will not ignore you or your call. Text messages are also ok.

Search Types

Land, beaches, parks, and shallow water up to 5 feet. Also willing to evaluate doing your property searches for older, lost treasures, either based on a fee or percentage. Scuba diving deeper than 5 feet is possible but may take more time to accomplish since there is a lot more equipment involved, and may need to be scheduled around equipment rental and air tank filling. I am also willing to consider ongoing diving search work as an independent contractor if you have longer-term needs.

Search Locations

Most of my time is spent searching in either Northern Indiana or Southern Michigan, but I am willing to consider travel, worldwide, as long as there is adequate cost/expense compensation.

Stile Teckel's Bio

I metal detect using a Minelab CTX 3030 and have the equipment to detect year-round in most weather conditions, land, or water.

-I have taken private metal detecting instruction, with professional treasure hunter and Minelab Ambassador, Gary Drayton, so that I can offer you professional-level services.

-As someone that is self-employed and working from home, I have a very flexible schedule that allows me to offer this service year-round, 24x7, and on very short notice, with few exceptions.

    On August 21st of 2023, I had a call from a gentleman named Chad. Chas had lost his Tungsten wedding band while playing some water football, in a lake. To make matters worse, he hadn’t realized it until later, so this meant a fairly large search area, where it may have slipped off during a […]

    The phone rang today (07/14/2023) as I was getting the dogs back in the house for a walk, at a time when I, of course, was unable to answer it. Thankfully Joe left a voicemail and I was able to call him back a few minutes later. A few hours later found myself in a […]
