Tyler had been celebrating Christmas in his backyard Hot Tub when they decided it would be a good idea to jump out of the Hot Water and jump into the Cold Snow to make Snow Angels  BRRRRR!   Unfortunately the extreme cold of the snow made his wet finger shrink and in the process of flailing around to make a Snow Angel his Wedding Ring came off and was lost in the snow, which was 6-8 inches deep over the whole yard.   Tyler left a message and I returned his call, we arranged to meet at his home.  When Tyler showed me where they had been frolicking in the snow I decided to start my search.    Within two passes across the back yard with my Garrett AT-PRO Metal Detector I got the unmistakeable sound of White Gold. I swept  through the snow and there it was gleaming up at me.   Tyler was extremely happy and relieved to have his wedding and back on his finger as you can see form the photo below.

A desperate call from Leslie on Christmas Eve, her daughter had been shoveling their sidewalks and lost the only set of keys for their Car fortunately they also had a Truck. Due to the winter storm I was unable to travel the Highway that evening and we arranged for me to go out on Boxing Day.   The weather was good on Boxing Day and I drove 120 kilometers to her home in Penhold, Alberta without any problem.  When I arrived Leslie showed me the areas that were best to search, after kicking down and searching the 2 foot mounds of snow along the front of the yard I turned to the path leading up to the house and around to the side.  After 1 hour I still had not found the keys.   I then started work the center of the front yard and after a few passes found the keys in the middle of the yard a good 15 feet from the sidewalk, that girl sure has a good arm.   Leslie was thrilled to get the keys back as they were the only set and it would have cost  $500.00 to get new ones.   I love the smiles I get when I recover lost valuables for people just look at Leslie beaming below.

Happy to have keys back

 

Platinum Wedding Ring recovered in Calgary

Roland had been dusting the snow off his coat last night when his ring flew from his finger and into his front yard.   While he knew the general area he had searched and searched but to no avail, the heavy Platinum Wedding Band could not be seen.  He even shoveled the snow off the lawn and into his garage so it could melt and he could recover the ring but still no ring.  That’s when his wife found The Ring Finders online and Roland called me.  Roland explained, that the ring was very important to them as they just got married last summer, he couldn’t believe he’d lost it already.    

We arranged to meet at his home today and he showed me the area his ring could be in, we talked about how he had dusted his coat off and I had him reenact the scene for me.  Based on his movements, the weight of the ring, and the force behind the movement, as usual I determined it could be just about anywhere in the yard even possibly in the neighbours yard.  I searched the yard in two directions then checked the far side of a shrub bed on the opposite side of a tree to where the action had taken place.  You guessed it I got the sweet sound of Platinum in my headphones and brushed away the snow to recover Roland’s Wedding Ring.   When I handed him the ring he exclaimed, “Thank God !”  and you too Bill.  It was a big weight off his shoulders and back onto his finger.

Sometimes I go out with my detector to near by Parks , Ball Diamonds and Tot Lots.  I clean out a lot of junk and sharp objects keeping the community tidy and people safe from getting cut when playing.  Today was just such a day I was out detecting in an old Baseball Diamond that had fallen into disrepair and was rarely used anymore.  Within 30 minutes I got a familiar tone on my Garret AT PRO, thinking it inured like gold but could be junk I cut a plug in the sod about 2 inches deep handout popped this beauty a 10k Gold Class Ring the date on the side said 2007 and the school was just 2 blocks away.  

Chelseas Ring in Hole

I notice their was a name engraved on the inside of the ring and thought it would be great if I could return it to its owner.   On went the detective hat, Since my wife used to work for the school division I had her call in some favours and we located Chelsea no longer a student but now a teacher at a different school.  I contacted her and told her about the ring recovery and had her come over to pick it up.   She was thrilled to see it again and explained that she had lost it in 2008 and had gone back with friends and search for 2 hours with no luck.   The Ring Finders pull through again, returning smiles and emotionally valuable items.

We had just come through a big snow storm and this morning I received a text message from Justin explaining the night before on his way to work he had fallen in the deep snow,  To top it all off Justin is deaf and had lost his Cochlea Implant when he fell. I texted back and forth with him we agreed to meet at the location.  We communicated through notes and his lip reading skills and I setup a grid of the area.

This was the first hunt for this toy of device for me so I set my Garrett ATPro on Zero Discrimination.  After about 20 minutes I recovered the main part of the interface and then 5 minutes later the wire that clips to the implant and the interface.  Justin put it on right away and it still worked.  He told me that it would cost $10,000 to replace so he was very thankful to get it back.   Another customer thrilled with the service from TheRingFinders.com Justin Coclea Implant InterfaceRecovered Coclea Interface

Ms. Fakha was doing her annual Autumn tidy up in her front yard. She hadn’t noticed while she was busy her ring had fallen off, it had a lot of sentimental value and was given to her in India by her late husband. When I arrived at her home she showed me the areas where she had been working.

It seems to very common for folks to lose rings in the autumn, they don’t realize there hands are getting cool as they work and the rings just slip off their fingers while they work.

I had finished metal detecting the east side of the pathway and started on the west side when I got a nice loud tone. When I looked down and parted the grass slightly the sparkle of the large diamond and sheen of the 24 karat gold band reflected the setting sun brightly.

Ms. Fakha was very happy and grateful to get her ring back. Another successful recovery by The Ring Finders.

I received a call from Tina, her 84 year old Dad had lost his wedding ring in the yard while doing some fall cleanup. They were hoping I may be able to find it for him. Edward was crushed when he lost his ring as his wife had passed away just four years ago and the ring meant everything to him.      I went over the next day, we discussed where he remembered having it on last he explained, he had been doing some gardening in the back yard and didn’t notice the ring was gone until later when he was in the house.   Fortunately the yard was nicely lawned and there was only a few trees.  I started scanning the lawn with my Garret ATPRO and after only 3 passes across the width of the yard I got a loud gold signal and saw just under the thatch the glimmer of his gold ring.  Edward was so happy to get it back .

Lost Custom Wedding Ring, recovered in Calgary, Alberta

A quick call from Tony had me running out to the Community of Ramsay in Calgary, Alberta.  He had lost his Custom Gold Wedding Band while working on his newly landscaped back yard.  When I arrived he met me at the front door and guided me through his home to the backyard.  I was amazed to see the landscaping job. It looked like a scene from the mountains with rocks and green spaces and even a brook that ran the length of the yard (which only had water in it in the summer).  Lots of places for a ring to hide, he explained that it could be anywhere in the yard.  So I set off to work and worked the perimeter of the yard then the bottom area where there were some small trees. Fortunately, I got a strong signal at the base of one of the young trees and there under some mulch shining brightly was his treasured ring. Tony was extremely happy as you can see in the photo.  He thanked me veery much and said if he hadn’t googled Lost Ring and found  TheRingFinders.com he may never have seen it again.  Another happy customer

Calgary Time Capsule Recovered

from Calgary (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-403-701-1739

I received an email from Michael of  Calgary’s Apocalypse Scooter Club in July asking for assistance in finding a Time Capsule they had buried 4 years earlier.  I agreed to meet him and the club members at the designated site in Calgary on August 1st, 2015.

Well today  I went to meet with him and the club members, I arrived early which is normal for me, and shortly after a bunch of scooters, you know the type Vespa’s , Lambretta’s some even  looked homemade, came  driving into the parking area.  It was actually quite exciting to see so many scooters all arriving at the same time.  The was a large field but they had a good idea of ta spot that would get us close.  Once I had the area of interest marked off with parking cones and started my grid, it wasn’t long before I got an mid tone sound that registered 8+ inches deep.  The membership were pretty excited and attacked the ground with spades until they heard the clunk of the time capsule being hit with their spades. Sure enough it was about a foot deep in the ground and everyone was talking at once with excitement.  This was a fun hunt and everyone was still having a great time when I left them to their celebrations.  Thank you Michael and the Apocalypse Scooter Club for trusting me and The Ring Finders to locate your Time Capsule.

That Kids Goin’ to be a Pitcher

I got an urgent call today, Tom his wife and toddler had been out for a walk at Fish Creek Park Calgary, the youngster managed to get hold of Mom’s rings, at first this seemed harmless but then things went awry when their little one decided it would be fun to throw the rings.  They hit the asphalt path in front of them and then bounced in two different directions into the low scrub bush and tall grass. After a considerable amount of searching they found one ring but the other eluded them.

Enter the RingFinders website; Tom found me and called asking if I could come out today, I agreed to meet him at the park in 40 minutes.  When I arrived he took me to the site, a short walk down the wooded path.  I set up my Garrett AT-PRO Metal detector and started bush whacking, I got a few junk signals to begin with, after two passes near the path I forged deeper into the shrubbery and with only 15 minutes searching came up with his wife’s beautiful White Gold and Diamond ring.  A relief for Tom and I’m sure a happy reunion with his wife once he got home.  Another happy customer of   www.TheRingFinders.com  and a pleasure for me to return a smile to a young couple.

Thank you Tom, for trusting me and The Ring Finders to return your beautiful ring.
