Fort Myers Beach — Wedding Band Lost in Gulf Waters Found & Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)
I lost my platinum wedding band in the ocean at Ft. Myers beach on February 17, 2019. We were throwing a football in the water and I didn’t even realize that the ring had slipped off my finger and frankly, I didn’t know if it was in the water or on the beach and I was crushed after looking and calling everyplace we had been that entire day.
I ran across Craig Ostendorf on the internet while attempting to rent a metal detector on February 19th.
Craig and his wife met me out on the beach that afternoon. Craig told me that he felt the chances of finding my ring were good, though I thought finding that ring in that big ocean after two days was impossible. Long story short Craig and his wife marched out into the surf with their equipment to give it a shot. 30 minutes later they found my ring and I cannot Express the relief and gratitude that I feel for what Craig and his beautiful wife did for me.
I would highly recommend these angels for what they did for me, and they accepted a tip from me but didn’t charge for their services.
I thank you both from the bottom of my heart and I’ll sleep better tonight with my wedding band back on my finger.
Please see the photo of my ring, and again thank you both for what you did for me.

Lost wedding ring Waikiki FOUND!

Contact: 1-808-699-0521

It was around 9:00pm when I checked my email and noticed that Dan reached out and said he lost his ring in the water. I called Dan and started to get as much info as possible to help narrow down the search site. And as I gathered the info I started to get the equipment together and pack up the truck. I started to check the tides and make sure I would be able to complete this recovery. This lost ring was a Platnuim ring which would be in the chest deep area. After talking to dan we agreed to meet up at the beach in 45 minuets. I  talked to my dad who was over the house visiting his grandkids about the lost ring and he decided to come along for the ride.

When we arrived we all met up and Dan showed us the general location.  We prayed and talked about my signals I would use concerning if I found the ring or I dug up something else. We all understood our part and we all went our separate ways… Dan and my dad went to opposite sides of the beach to mark out the boundaries. I start up the old faithful Excalibur 2 and started to make my search. Knowing I need to get out as deep as possible because the tide is on the rise. I make a bee line straight for the deep. After 5 minutes of gridding as I walk out I get a loud PLATNUIM TONE ! I dug it up and there in the EXTREME SCOOP IS A PLATNUIM BAND. I turn on my head lamp and read the inscription inside… it says Tiffany and company. So, I motion to Dan that I found a ring. I yell out to dan “ what’s inscribed inside your ring?” Dan yells out” I think Tiffany and company “ And that’s when I yelled out of pure JOY… we found it! I gave a loud shout of excitement and we all rejoiced as we walked toward one another. When I presented Dan his ring I could see the relief on his face as well his demeanor. We all shared in this recovery and knowing GOD was working on all of us collectively to trust HIM. We embraced and we all agreed that Dan should get home and share this blessing with his beautiful wife!

Another recovery and Another happy couple!

Lost White Gold Cross at Waimanalo Beach…FOUND!!!

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)


This Christian Cross hunt began when I got a call from Eli who hails from Kansas and is a Marine stationed at Kaneohe Marine Corps Base. While enjoying a picnic at the beach he took off his White Gold Cross and laid it on a towel. Later when he went to retrieve his necklace he found the chain but the cross had disappeared. It was getting dark but several of his Marine buddies pitched in but they couldn’t locate the cross. After posting on a lost and found website he was contacted by a gentleman who told him to try “Theringfinders”. We agreed to meet at the nearby McDonalds and then drove down to the beach. It was already dark so I brought my headlamp and Eli brought a flashlight. In the dark it was difficult to pinpoint the exact area so I decided to do an expanded search. It was a rather sterile beach except a buried firepit that was booming with metal trash right smack in the middle of the search area. I eliminated all the possible targets then moved on. I could see Eli was losing hope as I was down to my last grid line after 40 minutes of searching. Then finally I got a number 1/2 on the Equinox and I looked down and there sticking up out of the sand was one of the arms of the cross. It was glinting in the light of my headlamp so I bent over picked it up and handed it to Eli. He was overcome with joy as it was looking hopeless. Had the cross fallen a few more inches toward the water the tide surge from the night before would have swallowed up the cross and it wouldn’t have been found without a miracle in the water. Eli was extremely grateful as we bid each other so long. Aloha to Eli and Mahalo for your service to this great nation.

Wedding Ring Lost in Park Playground Sand in Culver City, CA…Found and Returned.

I received a call from Asher today, he had lost his wedding ring while pushing his daughter on a swing in his local park. He said it had happened today, and it sounded as though he had not left the area, so everything was sounding like there would be a successful recovery. Knowing this was in a public place the emphasis is on getting there for the search as soon as possible, so I told him I would leave right away.

When I got to the park, I walked over where the swings are, and Asher met me to show me what and where the loss happened. He had actually witnessed the ring coming off of his finger and hitting the sand, so he knew where it had gone, but yet he searched for over an hour with no luck in finding it. It is really amazing how the sand will swallow up a ring or piece of jewelry to where it is impossible to find. Fortunately I use the best equipment made for such a recovery, and have the experience to make the recovery happen. Like I tell the people who call me, if it is there I will find it. One short pass, and two scoops later Asher’s ring was in my scoop. He was very happy. This ring represented 3 years of loving commitment for him, he wanted it back, and I was happy to be able to make that happen for him. Awesome day!

Lost Platinum Ladies Ring With Diamonds Found in the Snow in Royal Oak Michigan

Platinum 911!

Just got back from a night search for this very nice, pictured couple. They were at the hospital tonight visiting an ill loved one and walking back to the car she pulled her gloves off and 2 pieces of her 3 piece ring came off in about 4″-5″ of snow that came down yesterday. They found the main piece and when I got on site they had been searching thru the snow with gloved hands and flashlights for the thinner ring. There was some lights but seeing was more enhanced by the big snow supermoon shining from above giving the glistening snow a sparkly surface. She had the matching ring so I took a read with the MXT from different directions and got +6 and +8. I started to scan and grid at 90 deg swings in the trajectory from where she was standing and where they found the other matching ring. She had gone to the car to double check if the ring was in there and him and I kept searching.
I got a few iron and foil signals and after a few minutes I got a +6 and +8 but very short signals. Probing the snow with the Garrett carrot revealed this beautiful thin platinum band tipped at a 45 deg angle just as she got into the car. I said I got it and he yelled to her and we waved our hands and arms in the air to get her attention. She excitedly ran back to us and happily grasped the ring and quickly put it back on! The temporary loss of the sentimental ring, the excitement of the search and quick recovery got our heart rates up really high but now 3 beating hearts are all back in the normal range again!

Lost Gold & Diamond Band at Nai’a Lagoon Ko Olina Resort…FOUND!!!

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)


This ring find began when I got a call from Janet from Montana who was celebrating her 25th Anniversary with her husband Luis at the Marriott Ko Olina. While snorkeling in Nai’a Lagoon, Luis spotted some Anuenue fish and in his excitement his stunning Gold & Diamond Band came off in about 10 feet of water. He had his wits about himself to immediately locate where he was in the water. He noticed he was about 10 feet from the swim buoy anchor however the water on the bottom was murky and he couldn’t see his ring. When they got ashore and spoke to the concierge she said to give “Joe” a call and he should be able to recover it for you. We met on the beach the next morning and Luis gave me the details to the ring coming off. When the sun was shining on the lagoon I commenced my scuba hunt. The buoy anchor is easy enough to find so I started the hunt. I immediately found a silver ring. Fanning out from the buoy anchor I found a few more targets but the area was silting up fast and it was difficult to navigate. After about 40 minutes I was getting ready to give up when several feet from the anchor I got a screaming low tone on the Excalibur. Sure enough one sweep of my hand and Luis’ Gold Ring appeared. It was quite a bit farther then expected from the anchor but at least it was now found. I still had plenty of air so I hunted the lagoon a bit more finding a silver band and a gold plated heart ring. When I got ashore I called Luis and Janet and told them the good news. We met on the beach for the return and after a few hugs I knew the Anniversary was saved. Aloha to Luis & Janet!
