  • Land/Shallow Water Search

Cost For My Service

I work on a Reward Basis...That means you pay me what my service is worth to you if I find your lost item(s). It's not based on how long the search takes, it's based on whether or not I find it. A minimum travel expense of $20 will apply, for gas, tolls, batteries, etc. Extended travel distance fees will be determined and mutually agreed upon prior to the search.

Search Types

Year round searches in yards, wooded areas, fields, beaches, farms, public parks (only with permission), and shallow wade water. If your lost item is located on private property, I require proper permission to be obtained by you from the property owner prior to conducting the search.

My searches are only conducted outside the home...Not inside.

Search Locations

Greater Philadelphia area (within 50 miles of Ambler)

Rick French's Bio

I joined The Ring Finders Directory to help people locate their lost cherished items. It is so rewarding and a true blessing to help find the irreplaceable.

I am also the President of AMDC (Ambler Metal Detecting Club), which is the first truly "sober" metal detecting club in the country. Our mission is to help those that want to be helped through a combination of the "12 Steps" and searching for buried treasure.

    Hi, this is Rose. I could not believe that my mother’s ring was found. I never thought I would see that ring again.
