Keys may not hold any sentimental value like a ring would, but they’re very valuable items these days! One key alone could cost hundreds of dollars to replace for these newer vehicles and then the fob/alarm can be very expensive.
Heaven forbid you only had one key and now you have to get your ignition and door locks changed…That was not the case for this search, but it has happened.
I received a call from a young man that wanted me to search an old school field across the street from where he lived. He told me that the keys could have fell out of his pocket when he was cutting across the field over a week ago.
The school had been closed for some time now and the field was over grown with long grass…(A great place for keys to hide) He feared that someone may find the keys and because it had a trade mark symbol on them… The person who found them could walk up to his truck open the door and drive away.
Well he showed me the area where he remembered cutting through the field and it took me 15 minutes of grid searching to locate them.
Even when I got a signal with my detector I couldn’t see the keys until I separated the grass. He was very happy to get them back and I met his lovely family, his young daughter had a metal detector and searched for her dad’s keys a week earlier.
When I showed her where I found the keys her face lit up and she said that she was very close to that area when she was searching…I wish she could’ve found the keys for her dad as she told me she wanted so bad to find them…
Thanks for reading my blog!
I love my job! If you need something found please give me a call…
