Don Carmack's Bio

I am a retired Texas Peace Officer. Worked 31 years 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.

  • I will never be able to tell you how much this means to my family... (2015)


    Thank you so very much for your time in finding the ring. I handed the rings down to Corey and Kim as they belonged to my mom and dad. Since Corey was their youngest grandchild and I was their only daughter I felt this to be an amazing thing to do. Once again thanks again for finding it.

    I am Corey's Father and Kim's Father-in-law (now)... smile Thank you so much for finding the ring... There is no way we would have been able to find it on our own... The ring had more sentimental value than actual value, but I will never be able to tell you how much this means to my family... Thank you for taking the time to come and help...
