I woke up the other day to a text message asking for help to find a lost platinum wedding band in the ocean. I text back saying I’d be happy to help and that I would called him later in the day because I was on my way to work. Happens that day our cell phone provider was shut down for almost 12 hours but I did manage to reach the young man and arrange to meet the next day as I had it off.

After talking on the phone a bit I learned that he lost his ring at low tide in chest deep water which was a good thing because it didn’t really matter how long it was there, I was pretty certain no one would have found it because the water isn’t that warm this time of year and most people who metal detect would stay to the dry sand.

I went to the location early before low tide to make sure I get a parking spot and there was a rally going on for 420 which is known for a yearly meeting for pot smoker’s. I found out later there was also a rally for not wearing masks and not being told what to do hundreds of people there for that as there was for the 420 event.

Ashley emailed me that his wife would be meeting me to show me the location because he was going to be a little bit late, I met his wife and children and they walked me over to the location then had to leave because they needed to find a better parking spot so they wouldn’t get a ticket.

Just minutes after they left I began to search and found the ring in probably 20 seconds in waist deep water, I was able to surprise her husband who came a later and after that he helped me surprise his wife. It was so fun to see her reaction and what the ring meant to her and with the ring meant to both of them I was so honoured to be able to help continue that story for them, what a lovely couple!

Lost Diamond Pendant, Burnaby BC… Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

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

Today I received a call from a young lady who told me that she had lost her gold & diamond pendant. She told me that she had lost it off of her patio and she felt it come off but didn’t hear where it landed. Her and her girlfriend had spent hours looking for the pendant with no luck. The reason that she knew to call TheRingFinders was because a month earlier her husband had hired me to look for his lost platinum wedding band. Unfortunately he lost it last summer, I had no luck or no chance in finding it because it was a heavily hunted beach a lot of time had passed before I did my search.

I arranged to meet the young lady after work and shortly after 8:30 PM I arrived at the search location, I met her and she showed me where she was standing when she lost her diamond pendent, she showed me where they were looking and also told me that she took all the plants out of the flower pot and search the dirt because it made sense to her it could’ve fallen into the flower pot. After not finding it in the flower pot she moved her search below the deck and into the grass but couldn’t understand why she didn’t see it in the short grass, I decided my search at the first place she thought it was lost and that was the flower pot, I put my pin pointer into the flower pot and I got a good signal right away. She was surprised to hear my pin-pointer go off and said that she had searched it with no luck earlier in the day.

Well after only about a minute of searching I found her beautiful diamond pendant and I was able to surprise her, it’s truly amazing where these sentimental items end up being found, especially after people have search for many hours and couldn’t find it.

I have the best job in the world I get to help find these beautiful items and also return the smile back to the people…I love my job!!

I was at work yesterday doing a long day when near the end night I got a text message asking for help, then shortly after a phone call. A young man had lost his white gold wedding band at Third Beach in Vancouver. He told me it was extremely important for me to find it, that is always the case and I totally understand that, so I set up a time to meet him after work.

After a 13 hour day I met the young man at the beach at approximately 10:15 pm, he showed me the area where he believed the ring fell off his finger, it didn’t take long to find his beautiful white gold ring and help continue that story. He and his friends spent 30 minutes in the dark searching for the ring with no success. Sometimes recovery of the ring can be very quick when others times it could take a very long time to find, fortunately he put me in the right area, so tonight it was a quick search and I was home shortly after midnight

Lost Platinum Wedding Band in Vancouver, BC Lost & Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

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

 

Well it was a Sunday last week and it was a day full of rain, sun & wind, I was enjoying the day working on my directory when I got a call from a young man who was from Vancouver and had lost his wedding ring. I stopped everything grabbed my equipment and headed out to help him.

Before I left I did ask him what I was looking for and it was his platinum wedding band that fell off the ninth floor of his apartment building. I got them to send me some photos and saw that it was pretty soft ground and I knew platinum falling from that high up would embed into the dirt quite easily.

He told me that his wife and two friends were helping him look for it most of the morning but cannot find it, that’s when they found me online and gave me a call. When I was driving to the location the sun was out and it felt like spring, shortly after I got there it started raining.

When I got there I asked my typical questions just to make sure I was in the right location, I looked up 9 floors and I asked him what side of the patio the ring fell from and then began my search.

It didn’t take too long to find his beautiful platinum wedding band, buried 1/2 inch into the ground. I’ve been doing this for so many years and found hundreds of rings for people and I got to tell you, I’m still as excited to see the glimmer of gold or platinum and knowing that  I’m going to surprise these people with a very sentimental item that they cherish and now can reconnect with…Makes me so happy inside! I’ll never get tired doing this!

Lost Diamond Ring, Kits Beach Dog Park…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

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

I got a call last night from a young man who said his wife had lost her wedding band possibly at Kits Beach Dog Park. I asked my standard questions to see how certain they were of the location and after talking for a few minutes we set up a time to meet the next morning at 8 AM, when I got there the tide was high and very close to the logs. When I met Dave and Stephanie they showed me the area that she was petting dogs and it was the front logs closest to the water, unfortunately she also pointed in the water saying she had stepped away from the log and was standing over there when the tide was out. This would put me in about 3 feet of water if the ring wasn’t found in the dry sand. Nothing like a cold dip in the ocean but I was prepared to go in and do a search if needed, fortunately I found her beautiful ring close to the logs where she was sitting petting the dogs. This ring meant the world to Dave & his wife because it was a gift from his uncle, Dave’s uncle sadly passed away last year due to  COVID-19 and as you could imagine finding this ring was extremely important to both of them. I absolutely love what I do! I’m extremely proud of my directory and the members who have joined to do exactly what I’m doing here in Vancouver and that’s helping find peoples lost smiles & helping continue the stories to these wonderful and sentimental items.

How to find a gold wedding band in the snow in South Surrey, BC…

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

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

 

Winter is almost done here maybe two or three weeks left, we escaped with very little snow… Just yesterday we got our first taste of winter with a few inches of snow and my phone started ringing, keys were on the top of the list and late yesterday a call for a lost gold ring in the snow, possibly on the sidewalk in front of the person’s house or in the yard. We made plans to meet early in the morning to do the search, I arrived at 9 AM and met the couple and we discussed the search areas. I found out that they been married for 40 years so you can imagine the story that is attached with her custom-made ring.

After carefully listening to where they believe the ring may have fallen off of her finger when she pulled off her glove, I started to search that area and after 15 minutes I move my search into the yard for a quick look. I changed detectors and headed back to the first location where part of the driveway was ploughed and snow was piled on the side of the road. I got a signal and with the pin pointer I pulled out her beautiful gold wedding band from the snow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was very fortunate that we found it because after the snow would’ve melted it would’ve been very easily spotted on the roadway… I love my job and helping people find what they have lost and I understand the stories that are attached to these beautiful rings, I understand if they are lost forever so is the story attached to them.

I’m very proud of TheRingFinders directory and all the members that have joined to help other people in their towns and cities! You only have to find and return one ring and experience what it feels like and you will be hooked!

I have the best job in the world!

Lost Wedding Band in Burnaby BC…Found

  • 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 call for help yesterday while I was at work, the young man told me he lost his wedding band at a frisbee golf course in Burnaby. He went on to tell me that the ring came off when he threw his frisbee down to the ground. It was getting dark and he searched for 45 minutes with no success. The next day he went back and search for over an hour with his fingers going through the grass and mud in hopes that he could pull out the ring.

They found TheRingFinders through a friend from his frisbee group who told him about my service. We met up this morning and he showed me the area where he had lost the ring and even marked it with a stick which is an excellent idea to get me into the area where I could possibly find the ring. After maybe 10 minutes and very close to where he believed the ring had come off his finger… I found his ring just inches into the mud, he must’ve stepped on it while he was looking for it and buried it into the mud and grass. I was able to surprise them both with the ring after maybe 10 minutes of searching.

Ring lost in Mission BC… Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

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

This search came from the Jon Cryer story about a month ago, the first time I went to look for the ring I spent close to six hours unsuccessfully. It was a difficult area to search due to all the blackberry bushes but Patti was not going to stop searching until she found the ring. This is how the ring got lost. Patti’s husband gave the ring to her to hold onto while he was helping their son-in-law build a barn. Patti took the ring and put it on her finger knowing it was very loose but keeping her hand clenched shut so as not to lose the ring. She walked over to a little shed where she grabbed a couple of apples to take to the horse but they were rotten so she decided to throw them into the bushes forgetting that she had her husband’s ring on her finger, at that particular time she felt the ring come off her finger and you can only imagine how that must’ve felt.

When she threw the apples she felt the ring come off, this is a horrible feeling! For anyone who has never experienced feeling a ring come off their finger and not being able to find it, it’s horrible. Patti told me she was throwing the apples up over the blackberry bushes which were close to 8 feet high at the time. When I got there to do the search she had cut back quite a bit of the blackberry bushes, giving me a really good chance to find the ring, after talking a bit more I found out that they had borrowed a metal detector from a friend of theirs but couldn’t find it, and that’s when they called me to come out and help.

Close to a 2-hour drive to get to Mission from my house and the first day no ring, six hours searching. Second time out over 4 1/2 hours still no ring. Patti had cleared more blackberry bushes, third time out I didn’t take footage of the search but I’m sure about three hours of search time. I’ve been getting a lot of calls and it’s hard to keep track due to the Jon Cryer story. Hard to imagine why I haven’t been able to find this ring, yes the area is very difficult to search and there are possibilities it could’ve got caught between roots and stems where I can’t get a Metal Detector in or pinpointed because of the prickles. I started thinking more out of the box, what if it went behind her to the right to the left, what if it went on the roof of that building so many thoughts crossed my mind but the biggest was why wasn’t I finding the ring?

Today was the fourth time out, it was a nice day and I was very hopeful, when I got there Patti was cutting back more blackberry bushes, I couldn’t believe how much she had already cut back and it made me believe there’s just no way the ring could’ve gone that far especially after hearing she is not right-handed and she threw it with her right hand. Even doing a test throw with a rock Patti couldn’t throw the rock that far.

For the what if factor I started checking the gravel driveway back to where the ring was handed off to her then I went back up to the hot zone and started grid searching while Patti was cutting back more blackberry bushes. As I was detecting near a smaller boulder I got a very faint signal beside the rock, I noticed a small crevice under the rock so I put my Garrett carrot in the crevice and  I got a signal. I found so much garbage here it didn’t mean much to me at the time, I just started trying to dig it out with the pinpointer and to my surprise, I pulled out the ring from under the boulder!!!!!

I was so excited but of course, I couldn’t show it right away because I needed to surprise Patti, she was still cutting back the bushes when I walked up to her and asked her a couple of questions and then put the ring in front of her to see her surprised look. I sure have fun surprising people and I got to tell you I felt so good to see that ring! Now to figure out how it made it so far back and so far under the boulder? After I got home that evening my thought was maybe a pack rat had taken it and put it there, any ideas please let me know.

How to find a gold ring in snow at Whistler, BC

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

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

 

I got a phone call from a young lady who said her brother had lost his ring at a park in Whistler, our famous ski resort. She went on to tell me her brother was throwing a snowball and the custom-made ring that he had made, came off his finger and landed somewhere in the snow. She asked if I could help him and I said yes absolutely. She then called her brother and gave him my number, he called shortly after, we discussed the search and he thought that someone had already found it but I still want to go up and make sure.

I asked him to Google earth a map of the park so I could find it and know where he was and where he believed his ring came off his finger, he told me he wasn’t good with computers and that he would draw a map take a picture and send it to me, and he did.  I headed up early the next morning with my wife Beverley and we both were looking forward to finding his custom ring.

About an hour and 40 minutes to get to the park and it was snowing lightly and still snow on the ground, which made me feel that we had a good chance to find his ring. When I got to the area I FaceTime Francis to get our bearings to make sure we were in the correct area. He shows me the picnic table where he believed he was standing when he threw the snowball at his girlfriend. (Not Hard) I really wanted Beverley to recover this one so I gave her the detector and let her go at it, after 30 minutes her arm was tired because I did give her a heavy machine…

I gave her a break and start Detecting the area after at least an hour and 40 minutes of extending the search my thought process was maybe he had the picnic table wrong I went to the next one over and started searching and found it within minutes. You really have to think out-of-the-box when you’re doing a search and make sure to exhaust the area and think of the possibilities of where rings will show up. I was so excited to look down and see this beautiful ring I couldn’t believe the size and weight of it absolutely phenomenal ring problem the biggest ring I found to date! It must have weighed at least 3 ounces or more.

I called Beverley over to film it before I took it out of the snow, we both were just amazed at how beautiful this ring was and so very happy to be able to find it and help continue that story and meet the person and put it back in there hand. Because Francis wasn’t there Beverley and I were trying to figure out how we could surprise him on the phone and that’s when Beverley thought of the FaceTime Fake Out. I got a Tell you it was one of the most emotional reactions to date, you can tell how sentimental this ring was to Francis and the story of how his late sister-in-law’s husband’s goal was melted into this ring along with other people’s gold.

Francis gifted us four beautiful silver rings that he had made…Amazing! Thank you so much, Francis!

Every ring has a beautiful story attached to it and lucky to be able to help continue the stories and see the smiles that we find along the way…

How to Find Lost Keys in Abbotsford, BC.

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

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

I got a phone call from a young man who lost his keys while he was gardening in his yard, he asked if I could come out and help find them. He told me the keys were for his house & workplace, he didn’t have an extra set. I felt confident that I would find the keys if, in fact, he lost them in the yard. Key searches are relatively a simple search, but I try never to go into a search believing it is going to be easy because that’s when they surprise you. He lived in Abbotsford which is over 100 km each way and I knew the drive would be much longer than the search. When we met and he showed me the area, I told him he could go in the house and stay warm and that I would text him when I found the keys. The search area was quite a big area but it only took a matter of minutes to find his keys and to my surprise, they were buried in the ground close to where he pulled out a tree. He was in his house for only a few minutes and then I text him to come back out and grab his keys, I left them in the dirt for him to see where they were found and just had one key exposed. I could see how happy he was when he came around the corner, he asked where I found them and I showed him where and I think he too was surprised they were buried.

Key searches might not be as exciting as finding a ring but I know sometimes it can be just as important.

I love my Job!
