Skier Loses Ring in the Vermont Mountains….Found!

3/24/19
Got a distress email from a guy who had been out back country skiing and lost his wedding band in the snow. He had already gone to the Harbor Freight store, bought a metal detector and tried searching with it. Unfortunately, most of what they sell there is a waste of money and so was the detector.

It was already late afternoon, with just a couple hours of daylight left, and the location was over an hour away. So I beat feet, threw my equipment in the car, packed lights and warm clothes preparing for a long search if necessary, and braved the potholes and frost heaves driving as fast as possible!

He and his wife met me and we started hiking up the trail. It was a beautiful evening out and I found the ring right off when we got to the area he had stopped and taken his gloves off. We had a nice visit on the way out. Their dog will sleep good tonight!

Gold Heirloom Diamond Ring and Wedding Band Lost in the Sand at Santa Monica Beach, CA…Found and Joyously Returned

Billy a relative of Karen called me asking if I could help them find a family heirloom diamond ring that Karen had lost at the beach just an hour before the call. Knowing that the weather had been nice, and there were a lot of people there I told him I would leave right away to do the search if they would await. They agreed to wait, and I left for the search.

Billy met me when I arrived and took me to the area of the loss. His family including Karen was visiting from Wisconsin, and were scheduled to leave the next day, so this loss created a high level of tension. The ring had been Karen’s great grandmother’s, and had a deep special meaning for her. They showed me what had happened, the ring had flown off of her finger while she was brushing the sand off of her clothes. I began my search and found bottle caps, foil, some coins, but no ring. I then began searching in the other direction, and a little further out, when I got a good strong signal. I put the scoop in, pulled it up and shook out the sand. When I looked in, expecting to see the diamond ring, I saw 2 rings, and was a little puzzled. Before I brought them out, I asked if I was looking for 1 or 2 rings, they then said that 2 were lost, but they were really concerned about the diamond ring. That is when I pulled them both out of the scoop to everyone’s surprise. Karen had an immediate flood of emotion when she saw the ring her great grandmother had worn, and came and gave me a big hug. I know it was bothering her to think she might have to go back to Wisconsin leaving this representation of her family behind. Boy it is great to see joy restored!

Tiffany Necklace Lost in the Sand at Santa Monica Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

I received a somewhat desperate call from Sarah about 8:00 PM, she had been at the beach earlier in the day, and lost her Tiffany necklace. The weather had finally warmed up, and lured many to the beaches to enjoy the change, Sarah included. She was sitting on her blanket, and realized that her necklace was causing a bit of irritation, so she removed it and placed it on the blanket so as to not lose it. When it was time to leave she forgot the necklace was still on the blanket, got up, shook the sand off of it, and left for home. She got pretty far from the spot before she realized the necklace was gone. She called, and I told her if she would wait, I would come immediately to conduct the search. She agreed to wait, and I was on my way.

When I arrived Sarah told me that the necklace was given to her by her parents, and recently had lost her father, so this necklace loss was a very painful one. She took me out to the area, and explained what had happened. There were some people in the area, so I began working around them until they left. I set a grid, and worked in one direction, Sarah then told me that she believed she was more in the opposite direction, so I changed over to the new area. I was finding some bottle caps, and few coins, and continued the grid. After about 7 or 8 passes, at about 9:30 PM, I got a good silver tone in the head phones, looked down, and saw a partially covered heart. I reached down, and brought up Sarah’s necklace unharmed. I was surprised no one else had found it because it was not totally hidden. Sarah became very emotional telling me that it was one of the things she owned that her father had last touched, and that she had been listening to the music he enjoyed on her way back for the search. What a smile, right?!

Custom Ring Lost in Yard While Gardening in Los Angeles, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

Paul called explaining that he had lost his ring while pulling weeds in the yard. With the recent rains the grass had grown rapidly along with the weeds. As he threw a clump of weeds his custom ring that he had purchased from a vendor on the streets of New York City flew off of his finger into the tall grass. He began to strip the grass down to the ground in the area he thought the ring may have landed, but was not able to find it. Thinking it may have flown farther, and down a highly vegetated hillside, he sought more professional help. Paul found me on the Ring Finders web site and called, and we arranged to meet.

When I got to Paul’s house, he showed me the area where he was working, and the hand motion that caused the loss. I noticed that the grass had been stripped down to the dirt almost, so anything like his ring would be there in sight, but I ran my coil over the whole area nun the less. Finding nothing there, I began on the hillside that started on the edge of the small yard. I worked my way down the hillside slowly searching every inch of the ground; NOTHING! I looked at Paul asking if there was anything else that could have happened, and he assured me the loss occurred exactly as he explained, so I went back up to the original area. It was then I noticed the pile of grass that Paul had removed from the area of the loss, and began my search in the pile. After a few passes, I got the signal I was looking for, moved the grass around and there it was. I held the ring up, and Paul came running over. He was so surprised that it was in the pile he had set aside, but so very happy it had been found. I know that I made his day!

Returned….Lost Wedding Ring found in Vestavia Hills,, Alabama.

from Pinson (Alabama, United States)
Contact: 1-205-283-7292

I was contacted March 8 2019 by Karen. She came in from out of town on family business and had the unfortunate event of losing her college ring and her late fathers wedding ring wile in town helping her brother. I asked her a few questions about the rings and she gave me a generalized area of where they might have fallen off. I was able to make it out there on March 10, spoke with Karen and her brother Tom. She showed me the places where the rings could have fallen off while she was working in the yard. The area was from covered leaves and vines to waist high bushes in many different spots. Also she showed me the areas in and around a few flower beds where they could have fallen off, so I thanked her for the information and began my hunt for the rings. After about 3 hours I  had searched all the areas with no luck of finding the rings. I spoke with Karen again and she wasn’t sure if the rings even made the trip, but something in her head told her that she had them on while working outside in the yard. She thanked me and I was on my way. She was leaving to go back home to  the Washington D.C. area the next morning.

I received a text from Karen on the evening of March 17 that her bother happen upon her college ring in part of the yard that I didn’t search because she wasn’t sure about that area. She asked if I could come back by and research the area where her bother found her college ring, she said that her brother marked the area around where he found the ring.  I was able to make it out to the location and search for the ring again on March 19 and met with her brother. Tom showed me the area where the college ring was found.  I retrieved my detectors and began to search, within about 3 minutes I was able to located her late father’s ring about 3 feet from where her college ring was recovered by her brother. I went to the door after recovering the ring to ask Tom if this was the ring that Karen had lost. Tom
had the biggest smile on his face and said “Yes”. Gave me a firm hand shake and said “You just made Karen’s day.” It is always a great feeling to be able to return a lost ring and see the big smiles and what it means to the people who lost it.

Lost Ring Found in Iowa City on St. Patricks Day

from Iowa City (Iowa, United States)
Contact: 1-319-430-3606

I got a call on St. Patrick Day morning about a lost ring from the night before. Charles was at a friends house in the backyard. He went to throw something towards the trees and his ring flew off.

So I arrived at 10:00 at his friend Brie’s house, unfortunately Charles couldn’t be there due to work. We had got a dusting of snow overnight so the ground was covered. She showed me the location where he was standing the night before.

I got my equipment together and was adjusting my detector as I was walking toward the area I was going to grid, when I got a very good shallow signal. Sure enough it was the ring. I was surprised when I pulled it out of the snow because I didn’t know it had so many stones on it or that it was so big.

Everybody involved was very happy that it was found. We all had a little Irish luck on this St. Patrick’s Day!

Ring Lost Anna Maria Island, Recovered

Ed and Christi brought the family down to Anna Maria Island from Saint Lewis to celebrate the successful surgery on their son for a brain tumor. It was a time to celebrate after a very tough year of medical procedures. On their first day they of course had to hit the beach. Ed was bouncing his daughter in the waves as they crashed on to the shore, when he felt his wedding ring slip off. He couldn’t believe his bad luck after such a hard year. The ring had never been off his finger since his wedding day and he searched franticly for hours. That evening he found SRARC Ring Finders and they scheduled a hunt for the following day. Since Mike, Nick, and Joe were already on the island the original hunters handed the hunt off to them. Ed had done a great job of identifying where the ring had come off and he led the team right to the site. In a few minutes Mike got the hit and up came the ring. Ed was overcome and was shaking with delight as the ring was returned to his finger. Our prayers are with Ed and Christi’s son for a speedy and full recovery from his surgery.

Lost Wedding Ring Found on San Jose High School Soccer Field

Lost wedding ring found in San JoseYesterday was the first sunny Spring day in the San Francisco Bay Area. Jesse and his son were playing catch on a soccer field at a San Jose high school. When they were done, Jesse took off his baseball glove and they walked back to his car.

In the car he noticed that his wedding ring was missing. Fortunately, Jesse is very observant: he realized that the ring had probably been pulled off his sweaty hand by the baseball glove. So they ran back to the field and started searching the area around where they had been playing. No joy.

Jesse searched online for metal detector rentals and discovered TheRingFinders. So he contacted me and I met him at the field this afternoon to search for his missing wedding ring.

Jesse showed me where he had been standing. The soccer goal posts had been moved, but he pointed to other landmarks that he remembered clearly. So I marked out a 20 by 30 yard search area with flags and began a grid search.

The first loud, shallow tone turned out to be a pocket spill: 6 coins all near the surface. Then came some can slaw: an aluminum can shredded by a lawn mower.  After about 20 minutes, out popped Jessie’s ring, close to the center of the search zone.

Jesse, thank you for trusting me to find your ring!
