Matthew Fry's Bio
A long time resident of the Grand Strand. If it’s outside then I’m at home. I am an avid outdoorsman.
With help from my wife we raised three great boys. I have wanted to metal detect since I was a small child, and finally got into the hobby about 5 years ago.
I have “State of the Art” equipment, and I know how to use it. Don’t rent a metal detector when you can rent me.

we all screamed like little girls who won the lottery... (2023)
What a relief!! I was apart of the girls trip & the one who called you late Sunday night. Lol. When we got the call on our way home that he found the ring, we all screamed like little girls who won the lottery. Thank you so much for taking the time. It’s very much appreciated.
Very blessed to have my ring back on my finger and forever grateful!!! (2022)
Wow!!! If you ever lost a ring, you know the sentimental value being lost is the most heartbreaking thing. I was on vacation with family in North Myrtle Beach and coming out of the water noticed my wedding ring gone.
Really thought it was a lost cause and I don’t know what I was expecting when I googled “lost ring in ocean” but when I saw The Ring Finders I became hopeful. Talk about great customer service, they responded to my call in minutes. Jim was out of town so Matt was covering his turf. What a dynamic duo!
Matt is a true detective, pulling up tide charts and asking for specific details. I could tell this guy knew his stuff and after finding my ring we were amazed by the stories of his other finds. Very blessed to have my ring back on my finger and forever grateful!!! Thanks so much guys!
Great service! Thanks again Matt! (2020)
I am grateful to you for your help. Memories are priceless and if it’s related to wedding band it can lead to troubles as well JK! ????
Matt was extremely helpful and cheered us as he knew that we were under the stress. He was very patient during the search and did not rest till he found the lost treasure.
Great service! Thanks again Matt!
Matthew is truly a angel from God inspired to help bring smiles back to strangers faces. (2020)
I can’t say Thank You for your efforts and time to Matthew Fry enough. I am truly blessed to have found out about the ring finders through a friend from home. I texted my best friend 2 days after I lost them. I was devastated and didn’t want to admit to myself I lost the rings. She immediately texted me back about an article she saw from the today show about ring finders. I googled the link and found Matthew searches the Mrytle Beach area. I immediately called him. He couldn’t have been more encouraging and helpful. He gave me hope in what I though was a hopeless situation. He poured his heart and soul into looking for my grandmother’s rings. A’s you’ve read I have the wedding band and he is still inspired to look for the engagement ring. Matthew is truly a angel from God inspired to help bring smiles back to strangers faces.

Anyone who loses a ring, look up The Ring Finders!!!
I always say that I believe there are Angels among us and Mr. Fry is definitely one of them. (2017)
After losing my ring last Monday, I was devastated but also so mad at myself!! I searched with my neighbors for hours that evening and we had no luck. On Tuesday evening I decided to look at the lost and found through craigslist and came across the Ring Finders. Mr. Fry was so nice and willing to walk miles to try and locate my ring.
He was also very willing to let me join in the search, even though I had never worked a metal detector before. While we searched and searched for almost 3 hours I can honestly say that I was about to give up hope. I was getting so tired, hot and exhausted. It was at that moment Mr. Fry walked across the street to where I was, came up to me (serious as can be) he asked if I thought we had given it the all American try (in my head I was thinking, this guy has had enough and he is ready to go home) he then asked if I believed in miracles and held my ring up!!
I started shaking and had instant tears rolling down my cheeks!! Of course I hugged him and thank him over and over. It had been missing for 5 days with tons of rain!! I was sure that my ring was gone forever, thank god I was wrong. I always say that I believe there are Angels among us and Mr. Fry is definitely one of them.
