Search Types

Lakes. yards, parks and anywhere I can be of assistance to help you find what you thought was lost forever.

I prefer staying in the central Arkansas areas within a 50 mile radius.. I have been known to drive much further if someone cannot find help elsewhere.

John May's Bio

I am 42 and I used to go out detecting with my father when I was four years old, so I’ve hunted for treasures most of my life. I purchased my first metal detector in 2001, but I didn’t get serious until 2012. I usually detect 1-3 times per week. I use a Minelab CTX 3030, XP Deus and White’s Matrix M6 as my primary machines. I have others as well.

I primarily “coin shoot” as a hobby, but I also look for Civil War relics. I have detected battlefield sites for museums and donated items to many historical societies in Arkansas. I have also found jewelry for tornado victims after their homes were destroyed.

What motivated me mostly about being a “Ring Finder” was that back in 2005 my now deceased wife lost her wedding set in the yard. I had only a cheap detector and I didn’t really know what I was doing. I never found the ring and I hope that I can help others to not have to go through the pain of losing something they cherish. I only wished I had someone to help me back then. My goal is to help others above all else.
