New to Calgary, She Hid Her Rings (2023)
Daylene has had a very difficult year. Lots of change and health scares led her to hide her rings in her newly purchased home.

Rings lost in Calgary’s snow- They Can be Found (2023)
Had a call out from Mike. He had been working beside the house on a cold snowy day. When it happened, he felt it go and heard it hit. His ring was gone and he just couldn’t figure out where. He could have waited until the snow melted, but having it back meant one less […]
Keys Lost in the Snow on the Way to the Post Box (2022)
A morning call to recover car keys lost in the snow while collecting the mail.
Keys recovered from the snow (2022)
It happens all the time. Keys are dropped into the snow which instantly swallows them up. If it isn’t heard, they’re gone. A metal detector works great in the snow. In this case, it took a while to get the coil above the keys, but once I did, it was pretty obvious.
Evan Cappon - Testimonials
Evan, I cannot thank you enough... (2022)
Evan, I cannot thank you enough for all your efforts to help me recover my ring. Without fully knowing where it wasn’t (especially considering the freshly-fallen snow), I would never have thought to start the search over again within my own home. Fan for life here.
Thanks Evan and theringfinders! (2020)
I lost my wedding band while playing with my dogs on a snowy evening at my acreage outside of Calgary. I knew the general area where it should be so I spent an hour or two crawling around in the snow with no luck. After looking online for a little while trying to figure out if I should rent a metal detector I found the website theringfinders. After browsing around the website I decided this was my best option at finding my ring so I emailed Evan. Evan got back to me the same evening and after a brief professional conversation offered to come right out that evening and look for it. Once Evan arrived he was nothing but professional and transparent and we were able to find the ring after about 30minutes. I would highly recommend Evan in the future. Thanks Evan and theringfinders!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart Evan! (2020)
“One afternoon I was walking crescent heights in Calgary with my girls, one of which was a toddler who was on again/ off again getting a piggy back ride from mama. Upon our arrival at home, I felt what I thought was a hair on my neck to only discover my chain had snapped! Well on that chain was a ring left to me by my mother who passed away at the same time last year! I was devastated to say the least, we traveled a pretty vast distance with truly no rhyme or reason to our path. I went into panic mode and contacted the local school, put up posters and walked that area for countless hours- NOTHING!
The next day I posted something on Calgary lost and found to have someone suggest contacting a metal detector group, and from there I met Evan ( angel to say the least) in our chat I discovered he had already begun searching for the ring, not even knowing one another yet! (The school put out a post)
We met the following day, I showed him my route, he seemed doubtful yet optimistic as the distance was vast yet contained if that makes sense…?
This man searched for hours on end, and no ring to be found! Again just devastated. Especially as I was approaching the anniversary of my mother’s passing!
One day closer to the date, I got a message from Evan indicating that someone approached a metal detecting buddy of his and they believed the ring was found!!! My heart was in my throat- honestly.
Evan and his friend rushed to get that ring to me, and although that ring was damaged it was the ring!!! The band was damaged but all stones in place!
Evan went above and beyond to help me find this ring! From his countless hours of search, to holding my hand, and offering encouragement all along, to hand delivering the ring, but days before my mother’s passing anniversary.
In this case the ring finder was so good, the ring found him! I am forever indebted to him, not only for physical efforts but his support! Words can’t express what this man has done for me and if I ever lose anything again (fingers crossed I don’t) he’s the best guy for the case!
On a side note there was a cross on that chain too, and he still continues to search for it! I’m amazed at his devotion ( the thrill of the hunt? ????) either way I’m grateful beyond words! “
Thank you from the bottom of my heart Evan!
Thank you very much Evan! Your kindness is inspirational. God bless you! (2020)
After searching for my ring late into the evening without success, I discovered Evan‘s services. I had originally called to leave a message but, despite the hour, Evan answered. I was amazed by his genuine care and concern, professionalism and complete willingness to help. He agreed to meet the next evening to help me search. Meeting in person, Evan was just as kind, sincere and helpful! He was thorough in his approach to finding my lost ring. Interestingly, while observing Evan, I noticed a glint of light on the road near where my car had been parked the previous night and it turned out to be my ring. Had Evan not agreed to help me search once again, and been so methodical, I would not have noticed it! Thank you very much Evan! Your kindness is inspirational. God bless you!
