Lost Something?

Have you lost a ring, keys, cellphone, or cherished item? Do you need to find property stakes? Did your child bury his favorite small toy in the backyard and can’t find it? Our members would love to help you as a service to the community. There is never any charge–just the satisfaction of reuniting an owner with their lost property. All we ask is a picture to post on our website.

Please contact us at detectinghistory@yahoo.com and one of the members of our Community Assistance Team will contact you as soon as possible. We will need to know your name, phone number and/or email, what item was lost, description of the area where the item was lost, and how long ago it was lost.

April 2017–             “I want to thank your club and a special thanks to Tom and Ron who worked tirelessly on my behalf.  Our search was unsuccessful, but I think that is because either I was wrong about where I lost my ring, or a pedestrian picked it up.      

You and your club were so responsive and so helpful it is amazing.  I can’t believe Tom was there to start looking within about 15 hours of me reaching out to you.  On top of that, he came back again and searched for hours with Ron.  The work that was put in and the professionalism shown as a service to the community was amazing.  Thank you and your team so much for your efforts, your organization is amazing and your members are very special people!”  –Michael R.

June 2017–        “I am so overwhelmed !!!  Tom R. found my wedding ring !!!! I cannot begin to express how professional Tom was when he arrived .  He told me two things before he started–

Number one was …..

It’s never in the place you think you lost it …..

and the second one was …..

If we can’t locate it ..we will bring more people out !!!

Tom never gave up in this 93 degree weather !!!  

Tom R. deserves a BRAVO ZULU !!!! 

His determination reflects great credit upon himself and the Gateway Metal Detecting Club of St. Louis !!!       –Jeffrey D.
