    Not all items recovered are valuable in the sense of monetary value.  Often, an item has more sentimental value then anyone could imagine.  I received a call from Sandra earlier in the day about a 14k white gold charm that was lost in the sand while she and her sister were on the beach in […]

  • I thank you from the bottom of my heart... (2018)

    Item

    Dear John,

    Today you made what seemed to me like the impossible happen. The little diamond moon charm that meant so much to me and my sister and was no bigger than my pinkie fingernail is in my hand.

    When my sister’s necklace broke and the charm fell into the sand yesterday, we hunted for over an hour with no luck. Then a wonderful 8-year-old girl we didn’t know saw us looking and offered her help. She and her brother and father used their metal detector and sieve for at least another hour before we all decided that we had to let it go.

    But I don’t let things go that easily, so when I got home, I went online and found your website. When I called, you were calm and confident. you said that if the charm was there, we would find it.

    The phrase “needle in a haystack” kept running through my mind on my way to meet you. The beach is so big and the sand can bury something that small so easily, never to be seen again.

    But once I was able to show you the area where the charm had fallen, it was only a matter of minutes before you turned up the spot of sand where the little charm lay, still partially buried, but sparkling in the sun. What a happy moment! I will never forget it.

    Your calm, confident patience were just what was needed for the job, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making what seemed like the impossible happen.

  • This dude found my ring less than 4 hours after it fell off. That is unbelievable! (2017)

    Item

    I lost my wedding ring in the Atlantic Ocean this afternoon at 1:45pm.

    Unfortunately, Donna asked if I wanted her to hold it for me on the walk down and I said something to the effect of, “Nah. It’s not going to fall off.”

    So about 2 minutes in the water and it falls off. I never felt that attached to it other than it being my wedding ring. Until I lost it and I felt terrible. Maybe some of that was the feeling that Donna somehow knew that it was going to happen. We looked for awhile but there was no way we were finding it. Every bump on the floor turned out to be a rock or shell. I paced around for a little bit and then decided just to go home. Then I wondered if there was a site I could post a photo of my ring just in case someone ever found it.

    That’s when I stumbled on theringfinders.com. I sent a message on Facebook (2:45pm) and about 5 minutes later, John Favano sent me his phone number to give him a call. At 3:07pm (just checked my phone log) we briefly talked. So now, I was waiting on a guy that may or may not show up and may or may not find a wedding ring in THE Atlantic Ocean if and when he got here. Then, my phone rings, John says that he is at the beach and to come meet him. We are off to a good start all things considered.

    All week, we were talking about how small the beach has become over the years but walking over the dune I never remember it seeming so big. There was no chance we were finding it. At least when it is lost for good, I will have the satisfaction that I at least I tried everything I could think of. Donna and I are at the beach with John pointing out where I am pretty sure I lost it. Thanks to the dude that made sand dolphins btw.

    John is walking a grid from the beach all the way into the water about chest deep. From the beach into the water…back to the beach and then back into the water. He stopped to dig a few times but nothing. Then he looks up and asks me what my ring looks like. This dude found my ring less than 4 hours after it fell off.

    That is unbelievable! Call John Favano!
