Did you lose something important, priceless, expensive or sentimental?
If you’re in Florida on the east coast, I can probably help you pretty quickly. Reach out and let me know where you lost it and I’ll see if I can help you!
But if I can’t help or I’m too far away, I have some suggestions for you too! Try a Ring Finder. The founder of this service says that his goal is to “offer the world an online directory of metal detecting specialists that will help people find their lost jewelry at beaches, parks, lakes and yards all around the world.” It doesn’t have to be a ring, but when you really need to find it, these are independent metal detectorists like me that can help you.
