June 18th, 2021: Recovered a gold pendant missing for 11 months in Richmond, VA.

Ashley lost a delicate 10k pendant almost a year ago while having a family celebration in her yard. She had given up on finding it, until she came upon my contact information on The pendant has a great sentimental value for Ashley as it was a gift from her mother, and could not be replaced.

After arranging a date and time, my son Matthew and I arrived at Ashley’s and she provided us a detailed account of the activities from the party.

There were two areas where Ashley’s chain may have broken. One area was around a portable pool. The other possible search area was where she and her guests had played human bumper ball. Both areas are on the side of the house. Matthew and I set up search grids and combed the area. We found several targets which sounded like 10k gold, but no luck.

After a couple of hours, we expanded the search area toward the back of the house. A few minutes later, I heard Matthew say those wonderful words, “Dad, we found it”!




As you might imagine, Ashley was elated and we all celebrated a joyful outcome to the search.

Lost Necklace & Pendant in McLean VA … Found! (April 2018)

  • from Fairfax (Virginia, United States)

Got a call from Lonnie on Friday morning; a necklace and pendant was lost in his back yard and, of course, he wanted it found. His wife was wearing her necklace and one of a kind , diamond encircled pendant while out playing ball with the dog… the dog leaped for the ball while still in her hand and she felt the necklace brake away. They searched the yard, the mulch line around the yard, the dogs hair, the bushes, every where they thought the necklace could have landed, even tried a metal detector from a local hardware store – no luck.

I was able to meet up with Lonnie the next day around 4pm. He walked me through what had happened and we decided on a logical starting point for the search. 21 minutes later the metal detector revealed the treasure and we were snapping pics of the found necklace and pendant.

Found in the grass.

Back in the hands of the owner.
