Lost Gold Ring, Bear Mt. State Park New York

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

I got a call from our member in Illinois,  Lee Campbell, from The Ring Finders Directory and he called to tell me someone had contacted him from New York that needed help finding a lost gold ring.

I got in touch with Hong Lee in New York and he told me the story on how he lost his ring, he offered a $300 Reward if someone could help him find it.

At this time our new directory hasn’t got a listing in the New York area so I posted for help on http://www.treasurehunterforum.com/ and I was contacted by two treasure hunters.  One left his contact number and was quick to reply, the good thing was that he knew that he needed a permit to metal detect in that park…He took care of that and I gave him the information and the next day he found the ring!

I’m very happy for Hong and for the treasure hunter who was rewarded $300 for his efforts.

Below is the emails from Hong…

Dear Chris,

Thank you for your call.

My name is Hong who lost a ring just outside of the Ice skating rink in Bear Mt. State Park in New York. Last night, there was about 5 inch of snow but I hiked Bear Mt.

The ice skating rink is located where the trail ends. I was done with hiking and I took my gloves off. But at that moment the ring dropped due to the sweat on my finger. I saw it coming out of my left glove.

It was late at night, and so I went home. I went there again today, but they plowed the area where the ring dropped. The following link has the picture of the ice rink.

I assume that it is inside the pile of snow that is about 2 feet high and less than 100 sq feet and on heel going down. The snow pile is just outside the rink but it is not shown on the picture because it is to the right side of picture.

I bought Teknetics Delta 4000 and tried to find it for couple hours but only in vein.

I came home and asked around. I was told that maybe I should spread snow on tarp, using a bucket and shovel, and then use metal detector.

I don’t know if there is any professional who is nearby. But any info from you will be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Hong Kim

Dear Chris,

This is Hong.

The young man found the ring for me.  I would like to thank you very much. Today is New Year in Asian Calendar, I wish you Happy New Year.

I probably would not have found it even if I spent all day myself, but he was so professional that it only took him 5 minutes for it.

Thank you again,

Hong Kim
