  • Land/Shallow Water Search

Cost For My Service

I work on a reward basis if the lost item is recovered (reward amount based on what you think is fair and can afford.

If the search is unsuccessful, I would only ask a small fee to help cover travel costs.

Search Types

Using metal detectors, sifters and visually, I search for jewelry at beaches, parks, lakes & yards, If it was lost on private or commercial property other than your own, you will need to obtain written permission that allows me to search. Sorry, not equipped to do underwater searches at this time.

Search Locations

Washington, Chittenden, Lamoille, Orange, Addison, Grand Isle, Caledonia and parts of Rutland and Windsor counties. I prefer to stay within a 75 mile radius of Barre VT, but willing to discuss locations further away.

Mike Baker's Bio

I am a FT carpenter, been an outdoorsman for nearly 50 years and have metal detected as a hobby for several years. I have found many valuable and sentimental items, getting great satisfaction when seeing the tears of joy when I return a lost sentimental item to its owner. I love hearing “oh my God, I can’t believe you found it!” When metal detecting, I am very persistent and methodical, sometimes even setting up a grid system. If digging is required, I always try to return the turf to its original condition.
