Reporters ring found after 12 years/North Vancouver/Deep Cove

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Here’s a story about a story… The Province Newspaper here in Vancouver was doing a story on my service ”Finders” and the reporter who was doing the story told me about the time he’d lost his gold wedding band in his backyard.

He goes on to tell me that he lost it 12 years ago, he search the area at the time that he lost the ring but couldn’t find it.

I said to him… We’ll start the story by finding your ring! He smiled and said no chance, he told me that he had landscaped the backyard a few times over the years and more then likely it was hauled out with the leaves and dirt.

But that didn’t stop me as I enjoy a challenge, I started late that day in his back yard and he was taking some pictures while I was searching. It was getting dark and I’d spent a couple of hours but didn’t find the ring, he thanked me for trying and I told him I’d be back in the morning.

I picked up where I left off and as I was getting close to completing my grid search of the back yard I received a faint signal that was close to a small tree in his garden.

I started to dig down in the soft dirt and about 8 inches down I could see the color of gold in the hole, I pulled out his lost gold ring and I have to say I had a big smile on my face! The total hours spent on this search was 3 1/2.

I called over to his work place and left a message with the receptionist that I was coming down to give him the ring that I found for him. She was excited as she heard about the search and I think no one believed I’d find it after so many years.

We met up and I took his picture for my ”Book of Smiles” and needless to say the whole story he did on ”Finders” was about me finding his ring!

I love my job!
