Woodrow Engle - Testimonials
Would absolutely recommend him to anyone needing help finding lost jewelry... (2022)
“Woodrow is AWESOME, very responsive, prompt, and professional. He’s also a really good guy! Came out the day we contacted him (New Year’s day no less!) and was able to find my wedding band in less than 15 minutes! Would absolutely recommend him to anyone needing help finding lost jewelry. Can’t thank him enough!”
Woodrow Engle is amazing... (2021)
Woodrow Engle is amazing. We searched for weeks for a bracelet we lost during harvest of our vineyards here in wine-country. It was expensive and special. Same day that I called him he showed up and carefully combed the vineyard until he found it. It was complicated by the wires that hold the vines but he carefully and relentlessly searched til he found it. I am overjoyed. He was humble, kind, and as happy as me to find it. He is the gem!!
There are good people in the world. Thank you for coming out and finding my ring! (2021)
I lost my wedding ring at a Memorial Day gathering. At 10pm, I found Woodrow through RingFinders. At 7am, he met me at the park and by 8:30am he had found it - a needle in the haystack. There are good people in the world. Thank you for coming out and finding my ring!
We are so so grateful for your expertise and kindness! (2021)
We appreciate you coming out to see if you could help find the ring. We connected and the next day you came out to search. We are so so grateful for your expertise and kindness! So thrilled to have my husbands wedding ring back in our hands. Thank you!
This man is a true Good Samaritan in every sense. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. (2021)
While taking wedding photos in the park I lost a sapphire and diamond earring that was borrowed from a lifelong friend. The earring was her deceased mother’s and my “something borrowed and something blue.”
As you can image I was devastated. Unfortunately it put a sad damper on the afternoon. Finally that night I contacted Woodrow a complete stranger who agreed to meet me at the park the next morning at 7:30 am! What a wonderful guy. I let myself hope we might find the earring with his help.
After a few hours and much diligent effort Woodrow found the earring under an inch or dirt. One of us must have stepped on it during our initial search. I cried with relief and joy.
When saying our goodbyes I had to pressure Woodrow to take a reward; often he only asks for gas money, but he deserves so much more. If you can financially support his work so he can help others please do.
This man is a true Good Samaritan in every sense.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
You are an absolute legend... (2020)
You are an absolute legend. Not only did you find my wedding ring on Stinson Beach, but you did it THE SAME DAY I called. And then you waited around for me to drive up from SF, in the dark.
I am really, really grateful. Thanks for being rad.
