Lost Gold Wedding Band in Snow/Vancouver,BC…Found!

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

While sledding at a Vancouver park with his daughter, Chris lost his white gold wedding band. When I met Chris he was very certain that it was lost at the park and he even had a video of him sledding, at one point he was shaking his hands in the video and he felt that was the moment the ring must have come off. Watching the video, I too felt the same way as Chris did as he said the ring was very loose, shaking your hands like that would make the ring come off for sure.

After Chris showed me the area, he went to work, I started my search at the top of the hill. I worked my way grid searching north/south and after 30 minutes I found his 19k white gold wedding band. I feel just as happy as the person I find it for does…Very Happy!

Lost Engagement Ring in Snow… Found in Langley,BC

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

Dec.23 was our Christmas day with our Grandson and we were having a spectacular day playing with all the toys and watching how excited this little 4 1/2 year old was, it really really melted our hearts! Around 1 PM I received a phone call from a young lady who said that she needed my help finding a lost diamond engagement ring in the snow.

She went on to tell me that they were taking pictures of her engagement ring in the park and it fell into the snow and they couldn’t find it. Her fiancé bought a metal detector and search for approximately 3 hours with no luck. She went online and found and contacted me to see if I was able to help.

I was already booked to go to Pemberton for a search but called and postponed that search till the next day…Good thing I did, because they found their ring in the house and not the yard were they thought they lost the ring.(saved me 6 hours of drive time there and back) I asked my grandson if it was okay that papa could go out and help find a lost ring for a young lady, he said it’s okay Papa you go find the ring.( He wanted to stay home and play with all his toys) I jumped in my car and in 40 minutes I had arrived and met the young lady in the parking lot and we went for 10 minute walk through a beautiful forest to where they had lost the ring.

I got to the location where I met her fiancé and we discuss the search, it took about 20 minutes and I found a beautiful diamond ring!













The young lady went back to her car to get something so we packed up and headed towards the car, we met her halfway in the trail. I had asked her fiancé if we could pretend we didn’t find the ring and that we were going back to my car to get batteries for my metal detector.

Then we surprised her with the ring! She was so relieved! I have the greatest job in the world I get to make people smile.

Lost My Ring While Raking Leaves In The Lower Mainland/Vancouver

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

Well it’s that time of year again when people are losing their jewelry while gardening and raking leaves, It happens every fall! The sad thing is most people just give up the search after they can’t find their lost item. I got a call from a young man named Joe who didn’t give up the search and found online while looking to rent a metal detector.

Joe explained to me over the phone that he felt that the ring might have come off his finger when he took his gloves off to answer his phone in his front yard. He wasn’t 100% sure but he thought it was the most likely place where the ring could be lost. Joe searched himself but to no avail,

He was not ready to give up the search so he had me come out to take a look.

I was excited for the challenge but I only had a 4 hour window before I started work so I drove out to his place (over an hour drive each way) and to both of our surprise the search only took 10 seconds! That’s right… turn on the machine 10 seconds later I found his ring, I have the best job in the world… I get to make people smile, Joe was in a little bit of shock as he couldn’t believe I was holding up his ring so quickly. In over 500 recoveries that I have made, you get lucky once in a while! I was extremely happy to have found this ring for such a nice young man.

Lost Wedding Band Found In Langley, BC.

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

I got a call from a young man asking if I could help him find his lost wedding band. What I didn’t know was he lost his wedding band 24 hours after he was married. When I arrived at his parents place he told me the story how he came to find out that his ring was gone at the end of the day. The thing was he didn’t know exactly where the ring had fallen off his finger.

He said that he was playing ping pong in the back yard and was doing a few other things in the yard that day. It was a big yard and it took me 2 hours to do a cross grid search, with no luck. I asked if he had checked his car and he said he vacuumed and checked it inside out but no ring. It was looking like it would have to be in his parents house but for some reason I felt like I needed to check the car as in my experience rings have a way of finding hiding spots.

After 2 minutes of search the car and under the passengers seat I caught a glimpse of his ring in a little hiding spot for the seat motor.












I believe if I didn’t check the car it would have been there for a very long time…If I had started the car first it would have been a fast recovery!!

Lost Tiffany Silver Necklace, Found Kits Beach.

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

Thanks to an anonymous person who contacted a lady on the craigslist in regards to my service, I was able to help her find her lost silver Tiffany necklace that was gifted to her by her mother.

It was a bit of a longshot because the necklace was lost for three days on a very popular beach where everyone metal detects. The other factor was it was lost by a log, and everyone searches the logs. I was a little nervous that someone may have already found the necklace.

We met that evening and I told the young lady the bad news that due to the time that had passed the necklace may have been found already. That being said  I was excited to start the search and I was very hopeful that the necklace was still there.

Within 5 minutes at about 4 inches down I received a soft signal and there it was in my scoop! I was as excited as she was to see it…If it’s there I’ll find it.

Lost gold ring gardening in Vancouver, BC

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

I received a call from young lady, she asked if I could find a ring that she lost a year ago under her front porch. Sounds easy enough so we set up a date for Saturday to come and look for it. She tells me that she rented a metal detector and found a bunch of nails and gave up the search, she also tells me they are selling the house and she needs to find this ring ASAP.

After arriving to the location, I met her husband and we went over the search location,  I’m still a little unclear  were the ring was lost, he said she was gardening that day but also told me the ring was lost under the front porch. I ended up calling his wife Tracy and she told me 100% the ring was lost under the front porch. After digging around in the rocks up pops a beautiful gold ring from behind some rocks up against the house.

Actors Gold Nugget Wedding Band Found at Spanish Banks, Vancouver.

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

I get a call from a Montreal area code and the young man said I’m in town working(Actor) I lost my ring in the ocean and can you help me find it? Of course I’m always up for the challenge and head out to Spanish Banks beach at 10 pm to work the water as it was going out.

This search was a little tough as he didn’t know the exact location, but after asking my questions I felt good about the search. I did a little stretch of the dry sand and had no luck so I headed into the water. Surprisingly there wasn’t many signals in the water, as a matter of fact the first signal I got was the young men’s ring. I was extremely happy as it only took 10 minutes to find the ring. That was a good thing because I had to work early in the next morning.

Lost Wedding Band 2nd Beach, Stanley Park…Found!

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

I saw an ad about a lost ring and it gave a fantastic description of the area where the ring was lost. I sent out an email with my contact info about my website

I won’t go out on these types of searches without talking to the person first as you need to get the exact info in regards to the area it was lost in and how it was lost.

Two days later I receive a call from a young lady who said that she saw my email and wanted to know if I could take a look for her husband’s ring. Of course I wanted to but I had to wait until low tide the next morning.

I worked until 12;30am that night and got up at 5am to hit the low tide, when I got there around 6am I could see lots of holes in the exact area that they had advertised the ring to be missing…That’s not a great thing to see when you know that someone saw the ad and came out before me.

I started my grid search and got a few coins and some bottle caps but no ring. I kept extending my grid search and just a little after an hour of searching I found the ring!










The young man told me that he was happily married for 31 years and that it meant a lot to get his ring it back!

I love my job!

Rings get lost…It happens!

I was away in Europe when I got the phone call from Fran about her husband Dan’s lost ring. I told Fran I’d be back in a week and I would come out and find the ring for them, I forgot. I got the call yesterday to remind me about the ring in the garden and I apologized and met them the next day and found his lost wedding band of 25 years. Fran told me that the ring was made up from her old gold rings so that was very special indeed.

It was lost in the front garden and I found it with my Minelab CTX3030.

The wonderful thing about this couple is they grow flowers for charity in their backyard. How wonderful and thoughtful of them to do this and what a great way to give back! Dan put together a wonderful bouquet of flowers for my wife who wass very excited when I presented them to her when I got home…Thanks Dan & Fran!

Lost Ring New Westminster, BC…Found!

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

I was woken up at 7:30 in the morning by a young lady who asked if I could help her find her lost ring… I worked nights so I was a little tired but jumped out of bed and got ready! She told me the ring fell off her finger and went over her balcony. After hearing the story I had a gut feeling that this ring had been thrown over the balcony. I need to hurry to the location because the landscapers were already there and ready to cut the grass, luckily the lady asked that they wouldn’t do that until I searched it first.

After arriving to the location and meeting Kim and as she was describing the area where she thought the ring was lost she told me that she got mad and threw the rain. This happens more than you know, the only thing is not many people want to talk about it or have their picture taken and tell their story…

Kim on the other had opened up and told me that she got mad and in the heat of the argument toss her ring over the balcony. This helps me because I have to factor in all possibilities of where the ring could’ve landed and if it landed on the road, across the street, on top of another roof, so many possibilities of were it could be!

Kim went up stairs to let me get to work and my first thought was to illuminate the possibilities of the ring being directly below her balcony on the lawn.

Well that turned out to be a great idea! I found the ring in 10 minutes and to my surprise it was lodged into the ground and out of sight! I believe the weight of the ring and falling from three stories and the possibility of her stepping on it had hidden in the ring from sight.





I was so excited when I pulled it up from the grass as it was one of the most beautiful ring I had ever found.





The story behind the ring was so powerful as it was made up from her late Grandmother, Mothers & Sister, all their rings and diamonds  custom-made for Kim to wear and remember them.
