I received a call from Trina Murray in June of 2014. She explained that she had lost  her 18k gold Cartier Love bracelet while out riding her horse on a large pasture on a friends farm back in February. One of her riding friends had found one half of her bracelet. It was a very sentimental piece since her parents had bought it for her in the 80’s. I scheduled to go out and perform the search on Friday August 1st, 2014. When we arrived her friend showed us the approximate location where she  found the other half, by a clump of trees. As this was a large area I enlisted the help of my partner Alex. Trina showed up and said she also rode over to the end of the trail and unmounted her horse there. I asked her to leave a marker there for us to search. Trina had to leave and I told her I would call her and keep in touch. Her friend showed us the normal horse trails they ride and we started scanning 3 pronounced trails in the 8 – 10 inch tall grass. We searched for about two hours about 500 feet each direction from a clump of trees where the other half was found. Then we searched the end of the trail where Trina left the marker about 1200 feet from the trees. At that point we were going to search the other side towards a fenced area, another 1500 feet from the trees. I decided to scan the right trail on the way back that Alex had searched on the way up. At about 400 feet from the trees I got a very strong repeatable signal and I prayed this was it. As I knelt down and brushed away the dirt and dead grass there it was gold shining in the Texas sun. Boy we were excited! I called Trina and told her we had no luck. She asked if she could mail me a check for our trip charges and I said I needed her to sign our search contract, she gave me her address and off we went. When we arrived I showed her the contract and told her we had to show what we did find. I pulled out some aluminum pieces from my bag, then a 22 bullet, a large washer, and another 22 magnum bullet, I then said sorry no bracelet, then looking back in my bag I said but we did find a half  bracelet! Wow her face lit up and she could not believe we found it, she was so excited and happy and gave me a big hug! Thank you so much Trina for the great experience and reward! It was our pleasure in helping you locate your beautiful Love bracelet. Alex and I are so very glad that we made your day. We may have to go back some day and ride those beautiful horses!

    Thank you Henry and Alex!!!!

    When I heard about your company, I knew I needed to call and ask you to try and find my bracelet. However, it had been such a long time. I didn’t have much hope that you could find my “needle in a haystack”. The bracelet is extremely valuable to me, but the pasture is big and much time and activity even hay baking had occurred where the bracelet might be.

    I so appreciated your optimism and willingness to search. I’m grateful for your determination. Now the bracelet means even more to me! That particular pasture holds a lot of sweet memories for my daughters and me. To think that the bracelet has been “growing” there for almost a year and is still in perfect condition is amazing!!!

    I will never forget the surprise of you showing up in my driveway with all the discovered trash and my bracelet!!! What a blessing!!!!

    God’s LOVE never fails. He showed me a picture of that lesson today.

    I look forward to hearing how others are equally blessed!

    Nice recovery! Looks like it was a large and difficult area to hunt.

  3. Tall grass… not ideal conditions. Great find.

    Way to go Henry. That looks like it was a really difficult job. One again, on a example of a professional at work.

    Nice job,
