Family Heirlooms Rescued after House Fire (Houston, Texas)

100 year old Gold pocket watch and two sentimental bracelets.


I was contacted by a homeowner who said she was searching  the internet for information on how to rent and or use a metal detector. The homeowner said she came across “The Ring Finders” on the web and placed the call.

The homeowner said her mothers home had recently burned, and they were preparing to sell the house. She said before doing such, she desperately wanted to find a very important family heirloom, her fathers Gold Pocket Watch. The homeowner said, she was sure the watch and few other precious family heirlooms had been placed in the attic several years back, when the home was threatened by rising flood waters.

The homeowner said following the fire, a decision was made to sell the home and find an alternate living place. She said, she could not let go of the hope that even after all of the destruction of the fire she might find her fathers pocket watch.


I met with the homeowner at the residence in Houston today to search for the lost pocket watch and the two other sentimental bracelets. The fire had devastated the interior of the home, and with a close examination of the remaining structure it appeared solid enough to conduct the search.
