Theringfinders metal detecting service helped me find a lost ring in the bushes in front of a restaurant in Orlando, Fl.! Open Now: call or text 321-363-6029

I received a call from Alex asking me if I could help him look for his lost wedding ring. I asked him a few important questions and decided this was a search that needed to be done right away. (For whenever someone looses a ring in a public place it is extremely important to get there and look ASAP….mainly for fear that someone else might find it!)
We made arrangements to meet and do a thorough search and the whole time I was praying no one else would walk off with his lost ring. An hour later I met Alex and his two friends in front of Rocco’s Tacos restaurant and he explained what exactly happened. Apparently as Alex was leaving the restaurant he felt a sneeze coming on and as the courteous custom is to cover one’s mouth, he let out a big sneeze and in the process he flung his hands down and to his sides and off came his ring! He heard it ping off of the sidewalk but did not see which direction it flew. It was dark out and he and his friends searched the best they could but could not find his lost ring. Alex figured his ring was gone forever! Later that evening he was talking to another friend and he suggested trying to locate someone with a metal detector and that led Alex to theringfinders.com!
So I began my search with my Garrett pro pointer in hand. The bushes directly behind where Alex was standing when his ring came off was the obvious place to start. It took 15 minutes on my hands and knees and I finally spotted Alex’s lost wedding ring along the edge of a side walk at least 20 feet from where I thought it would be. I put Alex’s ring on the end of my finger and walked up to Alex and his two friends. I explained that I had found a bunch of bottle caps, pull tabs and other junk…and then I held my finger up and said, “And then I found this!”. Alex could not believe his eyes and we all had us an awesome moment of high fives, fist bumps and man celebration!!
It was an honor and a real pleasure to help Alex find his lost wedding ring!

Lost pistol, not a ring found with metal detector

from Marietta (Ohio, United States)

I was contacted a couple days ago by a gentleman whose grandson accidentally dropped a pocket pistol in the Muskingum River about a month ago while running bank lines for catfish. We made arrangements to meet and we hopped into a John boat and up the river we went. I just took my powerful magnet hoping we could just pick it up with that. I didn’t want to get into the river with my metal detector because I knew it would be “mucky” and cold. After several minutes and attempts with the magnet, it was obvious that I was going to have to go into the river. We met the following day with my wetsuit and MD’ing gear. Up the river once again to the spot in the river where they was sure it would be. I can only detect in water that is around chest high. We spent about an hour and exhausted the area I could comfortably reach. In a last attempt, I walked in chin deep water holding the metal detector out as far as I could in deeper water and finally got a shallow strong signal I was hoping for but there was no way I could scoop it up out there. Thankfully I had brought my magnet back out with me and we was able to get the magnet on the pistol!

Lost 10k Gold Wedding Band, Westmount Neighborhood Edmonton, Alberta – Found

from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-780-497-2118

  

I received an email from Robert requesting my services to locate a family heirloom which had been given to him by his late grandfather. Robert told me he was gardening with his wife and he had his hands in his raised garden beds also in his flower beds. After he was done he gathered all the dead foliage into plastic bags and then he realized the ring was missing of his finger.
I told Robert I was out of town until Wednesday so I assured him that since the ring was lost on his property it was in a safe place and to not throw any of the garbage bags out until I checked them.
Once at Robert’s house he showed me where the ring could possibly be, and he checked the area for a couple of hours with no luck.
The soil in the five raised beds was eight inches deep and Robert told me that he was digging with his bare hands to the bottom of the beds. I used my propinter to check his beds and had no luck. I also checked the flower beds with no luck so then I checked his four garbage bags. The third bag contained his ring! Robert was very grateful to have his grandfather’s ring back on his finger.
Thank you Robert for entrusting me and The Ringfinders.

Mobile Metal Detector Service by Stan Ross member of TheRingFinders call now.. 949-500-2136 .. Available Now.

Daniel and his wife are from Peru enjoying a visit to Venice Beach, CA. He lost his ring in the dry sand when he brushed some sand off his pants. Someone on the beach suggested that he contact TheRingFinders.com. He didn’t have a working cell phone, but the person helped him by letting Daniel use her phone.

When Daniel contacted me, I was just 5 miles away. I made sure I had his correct location because we wouldn’t have cell phone communication. It sounded like it could be an easy search, but if I couldn’t find him it would be terrible. Many people are not good at giving directions. 

Everything worked out perfect. I found a parking space very close to his location. He saw me walking across the beach and met me with hands waving in the air. 

I set up my detector while asking him what type of metal was the ring made of and what exactly happened when he list the ring. Basically, I could see the search area because he had left many finger drag marks in the sand.

It was a quick recovery with Daniel and his wife very happy to have the very special sentimental ring back where it belongs. They had no idea that this service exists. To me, it is special because I know losing a wedding ring while vacationing would certainly upset the vacation and definitely not be a good memory

Man’s Gold Wedding Band Lost in the Ocean at North Myrtle Beach SC, Found and Returned

from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-843-655-5889

On May 13th, I received an email from Cliff stating he had lost his wedding band the week before, on May 7th, while swimming in the ocean in North Myrtle Beach. I thought the resort he said he had stayed at was in Myrtle Beach, so I passed the email on to Matt Fry, the ring finder for Myrtle Beach. After a few more emails with Cliff, I realized the ring was actually lost in North Myrtle Beach so I took the search and called Matt to let him know.

I got all the details from Cliff, including the fact that he lost his ring just a little over an hour after high tide, which was good, but he also said he was roughly waist deep when he lost it, which puts it out in the ocean a little further. Cliff was back home, in Ohio, so I sent him a google map of the area with my anticipated search area outlined, he replied that he thought the area should shift a little to the north. Looking at the tide table, low tide was at 9:55 pm, so I hit the beach close to 8 pm expecting to work the outgoing tide. Once I got to the beach, I expanded my search area out, probably 15 yards on both ends. Working parallel to the surf, I started my grid search at about the mid tide line. After almost an hour, and maybe 15 grid lines of 60-70 yards each, I got a strong 15/16 on my Equinox 800. I dug a shallow scoop of sand and saw the gold wedding band staring up at me from the bottom of the scoop. After almost a week, I was surprised the ring wasn’t deeper than where I found it, but so happy to have it in my hand. I took a couple of pictures and sent them to Cliff with a text of “BA-BOOM!!! Look familiar? Call me!” I got his address and got his ring in the mail the next morning.

I received an email on Thursday, May 16th that he had just received his ring. In his email he told me that he hadn’t told his wife yet that he lost it. He said that they were enjoying their vacation so much that he didn’t want to ruin her time, although, both his sisters and daughter knew it was lost. Shortly after they got home, she left town on a work trip, and that’s when he searched the web and found one of my posts about finding another couple’s ring and contacted me. So Cliff was extremely happy that his ring was found and returned before he had to break the bad news to his wife. Another very happy ending!

Cliff, thank you for trusting me to help find your lost treasure.

Hi all ,

 

 

I got a call from the concierges office at a 5 star hotel. I was told that a guest lost a  ring . I proceeded to the hotel and meet the guest on the beach. He explained that he gave his son in law his ring to hold onto . The son in law then forgot that he had it . They were not sure if it was in the sand or water.   I searched for two days and found it on the second day. I will be shipping it back to them in New York.

 

Hanauma Bay – Lost White Gold Diamond Ring FOUND!

from Honolulu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-282-6978

Like any day this ring save it started with a phone call.  Janine called to let me know that she had lost her wedding band at Hanauma Bay on the south east side of the island of Oahu.  Hanauma Bay is an access controlled State Park beach and closes in the early evening.  It doesn’t re-open until the following morning.  We made a plan to meet at the entrance to the park the next morning when it opened for business.

Janine was visiting from the mid-west and came to Hawaii to visit with family and enjoy the sites.  She knew the aprox. area they were sitting on the beach and it was extremely helpful in limiting the search area.  I was using a Minelab Equinox 800 which is an excellent machine for searching the sands of any beach.  I disconnected my headsets from the metal detector she she could hear what the detector was picking up.  I told her what sound I was listening for and being that it was a recently lost item it would be a shallow and strong signal.  15 minutes into the search all we had was a handful of aluminum pieces and one penny.  Then it happened, a solid and repeatable mid-tone signal.  The reading on the screen said two inches.  I gently slipped in the sand scoop and gave it a shake and there lying in the bottom of the scoop was a white gold with a black diamond wedding band.  Janine almost burst into tears, her ring was back where it belonged, on her hand.

Ruby Stud Earring and Diamond Stud Earring Both recovered and returned

from Chicago (Illinois, United States)
Contact: 1-773-206-8476

Received an email from a student who had lost 1 ruby stud earring and 1 diamond stud earring on campus while sitting at a picnic table. The wind came up and these two earrings fell through the holes in the table. These earrings were from her mother and had a lot of sentimental value. I asked her to send me a photo next to a coin so I could see the size of them. She did have the matching earrings. The Ruby earring was 14K but as you can see very small. The Diamond stud was bigger in white gold. Both these earrings were in the grass.

I asked her to put each earring in a separate ziplock bag which I provided. I brought my XP Deus with the HF elliptical coil. Since the earrings were small, I decided to hunt in goldfield program with the IAR at 5 so I would not hear Iron. I put both bags in the grass. I used the Grab Ground Balance, I bumped the kHz as high as I could. Received readings from both earrings. At the Lower kHz I got nothing. I also checked my XP Pinpointer with sensitivity bumped to 50 to see if the small ruby earring would even register.

In a few swings I got the diamond stud. Knowing that the ruby had to be close I found that shortly. I didn’t use the pinpointed but did verify that it would detect them. I had to be very close to them to register.

Another successful recovery. These earrings would not even register on the CTX 3030.

Lost Tiffany 18K Gold Band Recovered in Dundalk, Maryland!

from Baltimore (Maryland, United States)
Contact: 1-410-215-7826

On May 7th, 2019  I received a call from Vi stating that she lost her ring in a back yard area directly behind her home. She stated she searched for it for hours in the grass/vegetation with no success and even borrowed a friend’s metal detector, but never using a detector before, all she said she heard was a bunch of noise! We immediately made plans to search for it the next afternoon.

Upon my arrival, Vi took me to the area she believed it was in. I could see she did a LOT of searching as the grass/vegetation was very disturbed. I immediately began to search and within 15 minutes…..

Vi could not believe it! She said, “I looked in that area for hours!” The ring is now back where it belongs. Vi kindly asked not to be pictured on my blog, but agreed to the picture of the ring in and on hand and of course I obliged.

If you ever find yourself in need of my service, don’t hesitate to contact me. The quicker you call me out, the better the odds of recovery. As far as doing it yourself and renting/buying a metal detector, keep this in mind. Anyone can buy an airplane if they can afford it, it does not mean they know how to fly it!
