Last week I received a call from a young man asking if I could help him find a micro SD card that he lost at a a rock quarry in town called Hope. I knew this would be a tough search as there wasn’t much metal on a micro SD card. I did ask a friend of mine to test with his machines because he had a micro SD card and he reported back that it was detectible.

I contacted the young man and said yes I could help but before we go up to Hope (2 hour drive + 30 minutes up a bumpy road to the location. I would want to meet up just to make sure and test with my equipment. Saturday we met at 8 AM I tested both Metal Detectors the AT Gold with a sniper coil and the Equinox 800 in gold mode. Both machines were able to detect the small micro SD card along with both Garrett pin pointers. So off we went to Hope to search for this SD card with all his videos of the party he was at and the camping trip with his friends he hadn’t see in quite some time.

According to the weather report we were supposed to get rained on and we were prepared but fortunately did not have to worry about that, Daniel show me the area where he believed he had lost it at. Unfortunately there’s a lot of trash, spent rifle shells, nails ,wire, your typical garbage. I use my AT Gold and spent close to an hour and a half clearing out the area then I pulled out the equinox 800 and within minutes I found his SD card.

Daniel was so happy to get it back in his possession,   I was happy to be able to help him find it,  much like the rings I find, this too has stories attached to it and a lot of videos that you could never get back. It was a lot of fun beautiful drive and I love my office and thank you so much for the very kind and generous reward Daniel!

Lost diamond ring Rainbow Falls Whistler, BC…Found!

I received a text message asking for help to find a lost diamond ring at a waterfall in Whistler BC. After hearing the story I gave the young lady a phone call to discuss the possibilities, I asked her to send photos of the area. Connie sent me photos and I felt pretty confident I would be able to find this without them being there, what I didn’t know was they were from Toronto and had already flown home and the ring had been lost for over two weeks.

I’ve never been to this waterfall before and I knew it would be a little tough getting there but not impossible however Connie’s husband John was all in for the treasure hunt and adventure and he flew out the night before I was going up to search on the weekend. I was excited to meet John hear the story and have him lead us to where the ring was lost.

Saturday morning I was up at 5 AM headed out of our place at 7 AM to meet John at the location.  At 10 AM Beverley and I met John, we discussed the search and we were on our way up the mountain to the waterfall. I got a tell you this is the first times I felt a little stressed out  in regards to the fact that if I don’t find the ring John would’ve spent an awful lot of money flying from Toronto to Vancouver and back. I don’t normally get nervous but I got to say I was a little nervous because of the fact that I didn’t want him to go home without his wife’s ring.

I did tell Connie over the phone that they didn’t have to show up to help me as I felt I was able to locate that location and perform my search and hopefully find it and have it mailed back or left with a friend or relative here in Vancouver. That being said John was all in for the adventure and so were we!

We hiked up the mountain for 15-20 minutes until we got to the waterfall, John started to show me what Connie was doing and how the ring fell off her finger. Two rings had flown off in what she thought was the same direction, her son found one ring but they could not find the other. When I arrived to location I could tell it was going to be a difficult search due to the uneven rocks cracks and crevices and fast current so many reasons why it could be very difficult to locate a ring.

I started my grid search in the area the first ring was found but no luck, I kept expanding my search in hopes that I would bump into this beautiful diamond ring. After almost 2 hours John was moving a big rock and I helped him, when the rock was moved away we looked immediately but nothing under the rock, as we sat down and talked for a bit I looked over and saw a little brim of what looked to be a white gold band, I reached over a lifted the rock and pulled out her beautiful diamond engagement ring! I’m pretty well known to surprise people but I got a Tell yah this one surprised me. I didn’t even have the cameras rolling when I found it I just grabbed it and screamed and so did John we were so happy.

John told me that he sat down just before we move that rock and said a little prayer, I’m really glad he did because it was only moments later that the ring showed itself to me. I was so relieved to know that John was going home with Connie’s ring in his pocket, the pressure was off and we had time to enjoy the beautiful scenery and talk about this wonderful adventure. John was a terrific help with moving all the big rocks, makes for a absolutely fantastic love story with the perfect ending.

Lost Ring Whistler BC…Found!

I got a phone call from a young man who told me he lost his wedding band in a lake at Whistler, he told me he was swiping at a mosquito and his ring flew into the bushes. It had been about a couple of weeks and he found me online and asked if I was willing to come up and find his ring.

Of course I was up for the challenge, it was about a 2 Hour Dr. each way and part of the drive I had to jump in his vehicle because the road was so bad going into the lake that it had to be a special vehicle with enough clearance to make the big dips and  bumps.

After arriving to this beautiful lake, Sunny showed me the direction that his ring had flown. I thought for sure this could take at least two hours, it was a very difficult search due to all the overgrowth, trees, branches and big rocks, I thought for sure I was in for a long search.

It was only a matter of minutes with a lot of luck that I found his ring, sometimes the ring gods are with us, today they were! I was so happy to get this ring back to Sunny and see his smile!

We go the extra mile to find your Smile!

Got a text message the other night in regards to a Lost Ring in a volleyball court, this will be my third this year and so far I was two for two. I talk to the young man and asked him the questions I needed to know before I showed up, in regards to the search. He told me his friends searched for a long time into the dark and he bought a Metal Detector but still couldn’t find the ring.

We arrange to meet the next morning at 10 AM when the manager open the gate, even though he had bought a Metal Detector and his friends had search I knew my chances were great. After setting up my search I decided not to use my sand scoop in order to surprise him with the find, it took about 10 minutes and I found his beautiful white gold wedding band and I was able to surprise him.

We go the extra mile to find your Smile!

Lost & Found Gold Chain and Gold Coin at Vancouver Park…

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Imagine losing something so special that was a gift from your father, something that you’ve cherished for half of your life. I’m talking about a gold coin that his father wore for most of his life then gifted it to his son when he was 16 years old. Flashback seven years ago 2014 this young man lost the gold coin out of the setting on a school field, I found that it in a short period of time and was able to return his gold Mexican peso.

Now 2021 he loses both the coin and the gold chain which he took off before playing rugby to keep it safe he put it into a floppy hat in his bag. After playing in the hot sun for a while he ran over to his bag to grab the hat and put it on, forgetting his gold coin and chain was in the hat. After 30 minutes of running around the field he ran to the sideline and threw the hat towards his bag.

After the game he went to grab his gold coin and chain and realized it was in his hat, his first thought was it would’ve fallen out as soon as he grabbed it out of the bag. That was my thought as well, he’s searched all around but could not find it. He was a little embarrassed to call me for the second time to come out and look his gold coin but he gathered up the courage and gave me a call. After talking with him for a while I was excited to possibly be able to return this beautiful coin back to him for the 2nd time.

We met at the field I began my search near the tree where his bag was but did not find it anywhere near the tree, I knew my next step was to search the field and that was gonna be a big job as it could’ve fallen out of the hat while he was playing. But after asking a few more questions he told me that he had I can off his hat and threw it towards the sidelines after about 30 minutes of playing. This excited me with the thought of maybe the chain and coin got caught in the brim of his hat and when he threw it that’s when it came out…

You’re doing a great search and most likely an hour into the search not far from the area where he threw his hat I found his beautiful gold Mexican peso attached to his gold chain, I was so excited to be able to find this for the second time knowing how much it meant to this young man.

I had another surgery scheduled earlier that morning so I went off to do that one contacting him to let him know I was coming back to continue my search, I called him when I was there and said could you come and show me the area once again just to make sure I didn’t miss anything and that’s when I surprised him…

Lost Gold Ring at Davis Bay on the Sunshine Coast…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call or Text ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

My day job consists of mostly 13 hour days and it’s rare to get time off but luckily this week, I had two days off where I was able to recover two items for two very happy customers. The universe works in wonderful ways for this story because this couple were ending a beautiful 10 day vacation in the Sunshine Coast, unfortunately they lost a very special ring.

They went online and found TheRingFinders directory and gave me a call that evening, they told me they were returning back to Toronto the next day and luckily I was off work that day so we arranged to meet in at 12 noon at Davis Bay.

After a 3 hour wait at the ferry terminal, 40 minute ferry ride and a 40 minute drive, I arrived at Davis Bay, I heard the story about how the ring was lost and the couple showed me where they lost the ring on the beach, remember it’s a big beach and what seems to be a small area could always turn out to be an extremely large area and as you know it’s a game of inches and you have to go over the ring to find it. The difficulties of this search was that it wasn’t lost in the sand it was lost in fist size rocks, making it slippery and difficult to search the area properly.

After listening to their story and where they believe the ring came off I started my search, I knew I was under a bit of pressure because the sooner I could find this ring the sooner they can start getting ready to make their way back to Vancouver to fly out to Toronto that evening.

After approximately 40 minutes of searching I found his beautiful ring!  I was so relieved and happy to find it so quickly knowing that they could comfortably take a ferry back over to Vancouver and drive to the airport and catch their connecting flight to Toronto. Success!

How to find a diamond ring in the water in Delta, BC.

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

I received a text message from a very upset young lady who said her beautiful diamond engagement ring fell into the river, not just a river but the Fraser River. I know the Fraser River and how harsh the currents are so I was not hopeful in being able to help her until they told me it was Lost in a side River by the Fraser River.

The next thing was it was lost between seven and 10 feet of water off of the dock,  I’m now looking for a diver and call one of my friends on the directory. After conversing a bit more with the people I asked if they can go back at low Tide and see if there’s any chance we can do this without a diver as I know the water levels fluctuate quite a bit. They went back and text message me that it was waist deep by the dock, this was great news I can do this search without bringing in a diver and wasting his time. They also told me the current was very very strong when they lost the ring over the dock. They felt that the ring must’ve gone down river and it was a hopeless cause.

Mike didn’t even want me to come out he thought he was wasting my time but his wife said she wanted me to come out and search, she also didn’t think I had a chance of finding it but I know and understand what closure means to people. I wasn’t quite sure what I was in for because I’ve never been called to do a ring search in the Fraser river. It was muddy we had to take a boat to a mile away from the location and walk in, it was a hot day and I love my job!

They show me the area where they placed the dock only weeks earlier fortunately where they put it was very very little trash which makes my job much easier, the other key factor was we were able to lift the buckets of cement and move the dock away from the search area this was a huge benefit and helped in locating her beautiful diamond ring. I am so honoured to be able to help continue the story of her ring and see both of their smiles…

The search took 30 minutes,  time spent getting there and back four hours. I love my office and to meet 4 wonderful people and help find their smiles makes the boat ride back so much nicer…

Found Gold Ring, Surrey Volleyball Court.

I was at work when I received a text message for help in finding a lost wedding band, I quickly called the young man in regards to where and how he lost his ring. He told me he was playing volleyball and before the game he took off his ring and put it in the cupholder of his chair, after the game he picked up his chair and was walking to his truck when he got to his truck he realized there was no ring in the cupholder. This happens a lot where people takeoff their ring to keep it safe but forget they put it in a special place then pick up and walk away. When I finish work in arrived at the volleyball court I heard his story and where he picked up his chair unfortunately it was all dried grass and a ring could show itself very easily without the help of a Metal Detector.

My thought was the only chance we had is if the ring made it into the sand in the volleyball court, within only a matter of a minute I found his beautiful white gold hammered ring in the sand. To see his smile and how much this meant to him to get it back makes me feel so happy that I was able to help continue his beautiful story.

Lost Diamond Ring, English Bay Beach… Found!

I was at work when I received a phone call in regards to helping find a lost diamond ring in the ocean at English Bay Beach in Vancouver. I asked my standard questions to get a feel on what my chances were of finding this ring for them, it was lost 24 hours prior to the call.

There’s always a risk that someone else could’ve found it before I got there but it’s always worth a shot to go out and search the area, I asked if they had marked the area so when I got there I’d be able to know where to search. They said they made great landmarks and they told me unfortunately they couldn’t be there to show me because they lived almost 2 hours from the beach.

It sure helps if people mark the areas so when I get there I have a decent chance of finding it, I’ve been searching for another ring for almost 3 days a total of over 12 hours in the water waist deep because the person isn’t quite sure where it came off, it’s a large area. I will not give up on this until I know I’ve completed that search and covered all the area.

This young man said he had marked the area where his girlfriend lost her diamond ring, when I arrived and after looking at photos and talking to him on the phone, I lined myself up in the ocean and headed in to do my search. Within only a couple of minutes I found her beautiful diamond ring. I truly have the best job in the world my office is always amazing and I meet great people!

Lost gold wedding band Rolley lake Mission, BC…Found!

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

 

It always starts off with a phone call or a text message in regards to a lost ring,  Strangely I was already recovering a ring only 4 miles from this young man’s location. The odds of that is incredible that I’d already be two hours from home doing a search and receiving another search request only minutes from where I was. After finding a beautiful custom-made diamond ring for a young couple I headed off to the next location to help this young man. He wasn’t there as he lost it days before, I asked him questions about the location and if he could send me Google earth and he did, I went out there and did my best but could not retrieve the ring.

 

I wasn’t too concerned that someone else may have beat me to it because of the location he had lost it in, it was deep deep water up to my chin, also muddy, branches and rocky location that a lot of people do not like searching because of the difficulty involved. We made arrangements to meet on the weekend 4 days later, I met this young man and he told me the story of his lost ring. He was only married three months so you can imagine how painful this was for him and his wife to of lost this beautiful gold ring.

 

I told him it would be a very difficult search due to the conditions and the depth but I was willing and up for the challenge. After only 30 minutes I was able to retrieve his ring out of this muddy mess and surprise him!
