Victim #4 (Lost Ring) due to the latest snow storm… Very shortly after my third successful recovery as I walked into my place to sit down and start the video process for my recent recovery, no sooner do I sit down, I get another phone call for a lost ring not far from where I live. I got a tell you, I love each and every call, the excitement of going out to help someone…The young lady who lost the ring her name was Alana, but I was on the phone with her mother who told me her daughter bought a metal detector to search for a diamond ring her grandmother gave her just the day before… I could tell by the tone of her voice that she believed the ring was gone. After talking for about 10 minutes I was confident that the ring would be found.

I asked her where she had lost the ring, she said one of 3 places…House, car, snow. Snow makes the most sense to me, so I arrange to come and meet them and search around the car we’re she was scraping snow off the windshield. When I first got there I met Alana and we discuss the possibilities and where we should start the search. She takes me over to the car we’re she was scraping snow off the windshield. Alana and her mother watch on as I begin to metal detect that area.

The first target signal turned out to be a target in the grass, not her ring. A few steps after that another signal and Bang! found it! This was a very quick search, most of our time spent was discussing where the ring could be, and it was where I thought it would be.

Picking up the ring without them knowing and then surprising them is always fun for me. I feel as good as the person I found it for!!!

Lost Gold Wedding Band in Surrey/Langley…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

Victim #3 (Lost Ring) due to recent snow storm… I got another call from Royal who told me that he possibly lost his ring while he was scraping snow off his truck. He said there was a possibility it may have been lost in his house, but him and his wife searched his place pretty thoroughly and could not find it. He was at work when he called and asked me if there was a chance I could come down and meet him so he could show me where he was parked. It was bothering him so much at work thinking it maybe on the road somewhere.

I told him I’d come out right away to help him search for his lost ring. Anytime a ring his lost in the snow on the side of the road, its important to get there as quickly as possible to make sure the ring is not driven away by someones truck tire tread. Also you want to make sure you beat the snow plow as it can push a ring hundreds of yards down the road, into a pile of the snow.

I met Royal a short time later at his place, he showed me where his truck was parked and also where he went to another vehicle and where he walked from the house to that vehicle. I started my search where he was scraping the snow off of his work truck, still no ring. I started to grid search from the vehicle furthest away towards his truck, as I passed by the truck that he was scraping the snow off …Bang! found it. Very close to the road!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can watch the video and see the surprise look on his face when I showed him his ring! He had already given up the thought of finding it as it was already 30 minutes into the search.

Lost Diamond Engagement Ring in North Surrey…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

Another victim of our February snowstorm…I received a call from Linda who was extremely saddened by the recent loss of her Tiffany diamond engagement ring that she received at Christmas. After talking to her on the phone for around 10 minutes I learned that she had bought a metal detector, took the day off work and searched with friends but could not find her engagement ring. It’s not uncommon for people to rent or buy a metal detector thinking they will find their ring themselves. Most people don’t realize it takes practice to use a detector and I have over 40 years of practice.

It was snowing out pretty hard, I jumped into my car and headed to North Surrey to help her find her diamond engagement ring. The side roads were a bit of a challenge in my car but I made it to her place, She showed me the area where she was scraping snow off of her car and where her dad was shovelling snow. I started my search in the area where we believe the ring should’ve fallen and after 15-20 minutes and no ring I started searching away from the hot spot.

Not long after I heard that sweet loud and proud target signal and Bang! Found it…

I had one very happy young lady! I love my job! I get to make people Smile!

Lost Gold Wedding Band South Surrey…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

Married just 26 hours…Jordan lost his wedding band! Not long after our first snow fall in Feb. I got an email from the young man asking if I had time to help him find his lost ring in the snow.

I called him right away and heard his story about his father and grandfather who had search the day after with a tiger torch and a rented metal detector.

His parents spent a few hours with no luck searching on the side of the road where he had parked and where he had lost his wedding band. I knew it would be important to go right away and search for it

before the ring got cough in a truck tire and driven away or pushed up the road by the snow plow.

Jordan was at work and was comfortable with telling me the location over the phone as he wouldn’t be able to be there. He sent me the address and photos of the area where they had melted the snow and detected.

When I got there I could see the area that was searched and I took out my detector and started searching and my second signal bang! Found it…Less then 2 minutes by the side of the road. People wonder why they can’t

find the ring with a rented detector, its because of experience and I have over 40 years of that…That being said it was a good effort by his parents!

Lost Wedding Band in North Vancouver…Found!

Just 3 days before Christmas…

A Christmas miracle story about a man who was cleaning his roof and noticed that his wedding band was no longer on his finger an hour later… He had no idea where the ring could have come off but he assumed it came off his finger when he was throwing leaves and branches off his roof. After searching with no luck this man pretty much gave up ever thinking he would see his ring again.

Three months later and only three days before Christmas his daughter goes to rent a metal detector hoping she could find it and give it to her father  for a Christmas gift.

After researching on the Internet for metal detector Nicole stumbles across The Ring Finders website, that’s when she contacted me to find out if I could help her. I was excited for the challenge and met Nicole at her fathers home,  after 30 minutes of agonizing nail signals I eyeball the ring on the dirt almost covered by a leaf. I was very excited knowing that Nicole would be able to surprise her father for Christmas. I was very honored knowing he was married  for 56 years and that his ring was found to continue that amazing story of love!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lost gold ring in White Rock BC…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

I get a call from a young lady telling me that she was at White Rock Pier when her husband was giving her a beautiful 22k gold band when it suddenly slipped out of his hand and fell into the ocean below. She told me at that moment they both thought it was a gone forever.

She went back the next day and thought she saw the ring in the water below but it wasn’t the ring. She went home that night and went on google and searched the internet and found TheRingFinders. We decided to meet at the pier and she showed me the exact location the ring had fallen into the ocean.

Because the tide was low in the early morning I decided to go before work the next day. I got up at 3:30am and was at the beach by 4:50am I had the ring by 5:15 am and on my way to work! It was lucky the ring was there as its a very popular place to metal detect.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I enjoy the recoveries and I’m as excited to find the ring as the people are who get the ring back!

Lost Gold Family Heirloom Ring/Vancouver, BC… Found

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

I was at work when I received a phone call from a gentleman who told me that his daughter had lost her ring at the park. He asked if I could help her,  I said of course, I asked him to have his daughter call me so I can discuss the search time and place.

After talking to Sabrina for approximately 10 minutes in regards to her lost ring, I felt confident we would find it. I also knew how important it was to find because it was gifted to her by her late grandmother, this ring meant the world to her! I could hear it in her voice!

I arrived at 9 PM on the side of the street where I met Sabrina and her father, we walked to the park and she show me what had happened and where she was sitting when the ring came off her finger. I did a reenactment and watch my ring land on the sidewalk, this made me think if they hadn’t checked the sidewalk someone may have already found it. Sabrina was very confident that she saw the ring bounce up off the pavement and go into the bushes along the side of the walkway.

I started my search and after close to an hour and a half and no ring I decided to look under the bench that she was sitting on, to my surprise there was her beautiful gold ring! It was very dark so I put the ring in my hand and told them I needed to go back to my car and get another metal detector.

I did this because it was so dark I knew I wouldn’t be able to get the footage of her smile and reaction when I surprised her with the ring… When we got to the car I started up my camera and videotaped her by asking  a couple of questions about the ring and the search.

I love getting the reactions of people for the first time when they see their ring… it’s priceless!!

Lost Gold Pendent Found in North Vancouver…

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

I got a call from a young man who lost a gold pendent, he told me that it was given to him by his father who was a fireman for 25 years and wore this pendent in over a 1000 calls. It was a gold firefighters helmet with the truck number inscribed on the front of the helmet and two dates on the underside. His father gave him the pendent when he retired and his son started in the same Fire Department and truck the day his father retired.

Needless to say it was very important to find this pendent and continue the story so one day his son could have it and know the history of these two great men that put their lives on the line to help others. So we discuss the search area and i start to detect and I’m getting nails and not much else. he shows me that he made a sifter and was checking for the ring but gave up. He dumped the sifter and guess what…It was in the dirt from the sifter! It’s funny where these irreplaceable items show up!
