Most of my calls are for finding lost jewellery but you get some calls that are not.  My mission, if I chose to accept it, was in regards to finding a person’s grandfather’s ashes that was buried in the backyard in a mason jar, a year ago…  (His name was George)

It was a 2 Hour dive for me to get to her location, when I got there we discussed the search area, I also found out that she was being evicted from her home, so it was crucial that I find the ashes.

She wasn’t comfortable being on camera so I decided to just record the basic… Some of the search area and hopefully the recovery of the ashes. After 15 minutes the lady had to go to the washroom so she left me searching, only a minute after she went into the house I got a good signal and found her grandfather’s ashes, I left it where I found it for her to dig up. When she came out of the house I said ”I found George” I saw a look of disbelief, pure joy, and excitement all at once.

She asked me where?  I took her to the spot and showed her where i found it, she reached into the hole and grabbed it and as soon as it came out of the earth I could tell this was not George’s ashes! She quickly said I’m sorry I lied it’s $$Cash$$ So my search went from Ash to Cash! I found $12,500 in a mason jar that was in the ground and lost for over 1 year. She told me it was driving her crazy, she dug holes everywhere but could not find it, she apologized for lying but she was afraid of what her friend told her and not to trust anybody. I completely understand why she said what she said, the end result is I was so happy to be able to reconnect her with her money that she had saved for years.

She went on to explain that she was very nervous when Covid 19 hit, she heard rumours of banks closing their doors, she raced to the bank and took out her savings and buried it.

I just wonder how many people have done this in the past, forgotten where they buried their treasure and then sadly move or even pass away, leaving behind their life savings in the ground for some lucky person to find one day.

After talking for an hour or so this young lady was going back to the bank that day and let me know its now safe back in her Bank!
