Wedding Ring Lost for 3 Months Recovered – Calgary

Bruce called me 3 months ago November 2014, it was a nippy winter day, he had taken his young dog for a walk in the large sports field by his home and lost his wedding ring.   Unfortunately the large puppy had a mind of it’s own, he had not been trained yet, making a pleasant walk in the snow a bit of a challenge.   During the walk Bruce had played with the pup by getting down and rough housing with him in the snow, he had not done this once but many times during the walk.

One thing most of us forget and so did Bruce is that our fingers shrink when they get cold and wedding rings that have been on for decades now have a chance to slip off.

When I arrived,  we went over to the sports field and he directed me through the path they had walked and each stop they had made.  I scanned the area on the path and each side of the route they had taken, as well as, around each area they had stopped to play.  There was about a foot of snow that day but many tracks in the snow as this was a popular place to go for walks.   After 2 hours I still had not located the ring and Bruce was now showing signs of Hypothermia ( he wasn’t dressed for the weather) called off the search accepting that the ring was gone forever.
I told Bruce I wasn’t convinced we had searched enough of the area as the sports field is very large and we might have missed it by only a few inches.  I advised Bruce I would be back to search further and let him know if I found the ring.

Every time we had a break in the cold weather I would go out and search more of the field.  After 3 further visits and several hours searching, each time using a grid  and utilizing parking cones to delineate each section. I recovered Bruce’s wedding ring far from the area we were initially looking?  I took it directly over to Bruce’s home where I presented him with his lost 18k gold wedding band, engraved with their names and wedding date of 1977.  Bruce was extremely grateful, he didn’t know I was still searching for it and assumed it lost forever.   Another happy recipient of the Ring Finders Service.
