Lost Car Keys in Idaho’s fresh snow. Found with metal detector by Gerry McMullen

Contact: 208-345-8898

Boise, Idaho is a beautiful place in late December and today brought us 4 inches of new snow.

Jeanette was walking down the porch stairs to go start her car and slipped in the fluffy white stuff.  Up in the air and away the keys go, across the yard maybe but nobody know.  She looks for some time and can’t find a thing as you know a fob of keys can easily hide in deep fresh snow.

Her sister who is visiting for the holidays looked me up online and called.  What else would a guy be doing with his metal detector on the evening Eve of Christmas Eve?

Luckily she only lived 2 miles from me and so the drive there took longer than the actual hunt.

I searched the area she thought they’d be and nothing, so I checked the other side of the porch and the trusty Fisher Gold Bug-2 screamed of metal close by. 

As I handed them to her a joy and tear was about to appear.

No, not Saint Nick..just another good deed from Gerry’s Detectors… Ho Ho Snow.

Lost family heirloom diamond & gold ring in Boise, Idaho. I Found & Returned it

from Boise (Idaho, United States)
Contact: 208-345-8898

I could tell by the pantic broken speech in her voice something was seriously wrong.  On a walk with the dog the day before on a Fall day in Boise, Idaho Barbara slipped, fell and it was gone..  She explained to me, someone might have found it as she had rented a metal detector the day before, but no such luck.  After all, the walking path was not that wide, but at the point she fell it was steep with loose rocks and recent fall leaves making a little slippery.

The stunning diamond ring was actually many pieces of family jewelry past down to her and made into one gorgeous and stunning piece of art.  She could not live with herself if she did not find it and so I was the last hope, a professional with many years of metal detecting experience.

This ring was bigger than most so I new it would not register the same on my detector.  I needed to pay attention to tones that were higher than normal for the detector and also watch the depth meter while only going after targets near the surface.

After 10 minutes I recovered a signal that I was sure to be the ring.  You should have seen the stress let lose from her body as Barbara let out a big sigh or relief and then a huge glowing smile came from her face.

We are both smiles as I just handed the priceless heirloom back to Barbara.

Lost Hearing Aid at the family farm is found and returned by Gerry McMullen

Certainly not the call I normally get.  But since I enjoy a challenge with metal detector and I know them well, lets see what happens.hear4

Think you are good with a metal detector? Try to find a Hearing Aid & you’ll soon find out most detectors won’t pick it up.
Tom was cleaning some brush & debris from the side of a barn, when he awoke a nest of wasps.  Swatting at them as they swarmed his head and back just made things worse, so he quickly abandoned the area and ran into the barn.  It was an hour later when he realized his hearing aid on one side was missing.

Realizing a metal detector expert would be a better option than purchasing another $800 hearing aid, Tom called and we discussed the details.

Luckily I was able to bring 3 detectors to the site and found out two of them did not work. I had to use Tom’s other hearing aid to tune the Fisher Gold Bug-2 in before I started.

Many beeps later, I was looking down at the gravel drive way as my detector gave a beeping response.
I called Tom over and told him to look down.  He still could not see it and I understood why.  As you view the photos, you’ll see how easy it was to miss (hardly no metal at all) and the same colored background.

I saved Tom $800 and I hope to save some future hunters knowing the right detector for the task.

Triton Wedding Band Returned to Owner – Found – by Gerry McMullen

Contact: 208-345-8898

philipaPhilip called me from work and was somewhat upset since he had lost his wedding band in a local volley ball court the day before.  We discussed the situation and I wanted him to be comfortable working with me and asked for him to look me up on Facebook before he gave any other details. Later, he called back and was feeling good about letting me know of the exact location (as he was at work) and which court it was in Boise, Idahophilipb

An hour later I had his ring in my hand and was speaking with him on my cell phone.  Since he was still at work, I decided to meet him  there and returned the ring back to an extremely happy stranger.
