  • Land/Shallow Water Search

Cost For My Service

You pay what you can afford and what It's worth to you, for me to come out and find your lost item. If I have to drive a considerable distance, A minimum travel fee of $25 will be added to cover gas and vehicle expenses.

Search Types

I am equipped to search all types of terrain, including parks, yards, estates, fields, campgrounds, lake shores, and beaches. I can also search clean water up to 4 ft. deep. My state-of-the-art metal detector has GPS capabilities, and I am able to generate a map of the search area and found item locations, if needed.

Search Locations

Paso Robles and neighboring cities, lakes, and beaches. San Simeon, Cambria, Cayucos, and Morro Bay beaches are about 30 to 40 minutes from my home, and I am familiar with all of them. I am willing to travel, within reason. Other locations are possible, but will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Tim Wilson's Bio

I’m a father of three, a husband, and am a retired public employee. I have always had a strong desire to help others and am lucky to be able to continue helping others by finding lost valuables.

I have three years of metal detecting experience, and have found numerous lost items including rings, watches, keys, bracelets, and other valuable items. In addition to finding lost items, I also enjoy searching historical sites and homes for relics and coins, and am always looking for new sites to search.
