  • Land/Shallow Water Search

Cost For My Service

I work on a reward basis, that means you pay me what its worth to you and can afford for me to come and find your lost item or property. Give me a call and we can discuss further.

Search Types

I can search on land, on the beach, in shallow water and in surf to 6 foot deep or so. I have a top of the line machine specific for water searches and another outstanding machine for searches on land.

Search Locations

I live in the Pensacola area and am listed as working Orange Beach, Alabama, but I am willing to conduct searches West to Gulf Shores, Alabama and East to Fort Walton Beach Florida and anywhere in between both on land or in the water in the event a local ring finder is not available.

Thomas LeDew's Bio

I’m in my sixties, and live in Pace, Florida which is close to Pensacola. I've been married to my beautiful loving wife for 36 years and Father of two gorgeous Daughters. I’ve performed many lost ring and property recoveries in the past 4 years as a The Ring Finders member but have learned my detectorist skills several years before that as a hobbyists hunting with my son-in-law (who’s also a ring finder). While hunting the beaches people would often approach me and offer a reward for help finding their lost property. After awhile it became apparent I needed to upgraded my equipment specific to hunting jewelry in water and on land and I learned the techniques to successfully do so. There’s lots of reasons I find peoples lost property, its great exercise, a way to finance my hobby, I really like the beach, and its a really fun challenging adult treasure hunt. But most of all, its the smiles when I can return a precious, cherished ring and make someones vacation whole again, no more worries and no regrets!
