I help people find lost items of many kinds.

Since starting as a hobbyist around age 10, I have a lot of experience metal detecting in different types of terrain. I have recovered lost items in Chicago, Miami, and San Francisco.

If you’re in the San Francisco bay area, I can probably help you pretty quickly! Reach out using the form below and let me know where and when you lost the item and I’ll see if I can help you.

How does it work?

We start by talking – I will ask you to recreate the scene and provide details about how you lost the item, when you noticed it was missing, and about where you think it could be. The narrower we can get our focus, the more likely it will be to find!

Metal detectors transmit an electromagnetic field from the round or oval-shaped coil into the ground. Any metal objects (we call them targets) within the field retransmit an electromagnetic field of their own. The detector’s coil receives the retransmitted field and alerts the detectorist by producing a response like a sound and/or information on a screen. The more I know about your item like the metal composition, the size, and shape, I can narrow in further to something that could be your lost item.

What is RingFinders?

RingFinders is an international director of metal detectorists (like me)! The goal of the RingFinders service is to “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.
