Keith Wille's Bio

Treasure hunting started for me when I was in my early teens. I frequently listened to family members discuss 19th-century silver dollars lost behind the walls of my grandparent’s 80-year-old home. Multiple family members made attempts to recover the treasure, including hammering and chiseling access holes through the thick concrete walls of the basement. Devices were even constructed to reach over the wall but to no avail. All it really took to recover the lost treasure was a 13-year-old kid, some detective work to figure out exactly where the best access point was, a circular saw to cut through the closet floor above the hidden room, and my grandmother’s 10 foot curtain rod with a large spoon taped to the end of it to scoop out the coin roll. I found my first treasure! (But was in big trouble for cutting the floor)

Metal detecting has been a hobby of mine for over a decade. Today, that hobby combined with the same detective work I used to find the coin roll years ago, has allowed me to reunite families with their lost items they never thought they would see again.

Regardless of the terrain, condition of the property, or difficulty of the search I always consider safety a top priority. Leaving the appearance of the property as found it ensures there are no unsafe holes or dead grass left behind.

Time can be critical, especially if the lost item is in a public setting. My schedule is flexible so don’t hesitate to contact me at any time of the day. The sooner I get to the location and begin the search the more likely I am to recover your item. Once I arrive, my knowledge & field experience will allow me to read the terrain, collect information about the lost item and get within close range.

The last piece of the puzzle is the search equipment. A high-performance, lightweight metal detector provides me with the ability to reject unwanted items entirely, adapt to any ground condition, and search for long hours while minimizing fatigue. Combining all these characteristics significantly increases the likelihood of recovering your lost item, while also reducing the amount of time needed to find it.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile, and I look forward to assisting you with finding your lost possessions. Also, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you are interested in uncovering items other than lost jewelry – historic relics and artifacts – hidden or forgotten valuables – irrigation systems – cables – property markers – utilities.
