The Finder is the nineteenth episode of the sixth season of Bones.


The remains of a maritime museum security guard are found in the Florida Everglades, after attempting to steal a 18th-century nautical chart fragment that is used to discover treasures. To help solve the crime, Booth gets the help of Walter Sherman, a former U.S. soldier and Iraq war veteran, who has the ability to unearth anything. Along with Sherman, they are also assisted by colleagues, Ike Latulippe and Leo Knox. During the case, Brennan tests Sherman's skills, while Booth has cold feelings about his former military comrade.
