Don Carmack's Bio

I am a retired Texas Peace Officer. Worked 31years and some of my duties were K-9 and Recovery Diver.

My experience in these two fields along with the investigations and working search grids will enhance my efforts at searching for your lost items.

I have been metal detecting since 1979 when I borrowed my first detector to find my daughters lost baby ring. It was a successful search then I purchased that very detector and have been hunting since.

I have other successful finds such as a ring that had been lost for more than 25 years. Recovered it after an hour of searching in a high trash area.

A second recovery was a college ring that had slipped from a mans finger into the lake. He had lost it from his boat dock.The dive was made at 18 feet. I did not have a submersible detector at that time. Visibility was less than a foot so I improvised by using a tag line and anchors to work a grid. The search was made by feeling in the silt while following the tag line. The ring was recovered and returned to its owner.
