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!

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!
I love my job! If you need help finding your lost ring call me anytime ASAP…778-838-3463

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!
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!

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!!

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!

I get a call from a young lady that told me her husband lost his titanium wedding band at 3rd beach in Stanley park. After asking a few questions I find out that he lost the ring 2 days ago, that’s a long time to be lost on a public beach. I looked up the low tie and it’s 10 am the next morning, so I get up at 4:30 am and head to the beach to hunt the water as its going out. I had to be at work at 10 am so I needed to find the ring quickly.
When I get there I kill some time searching the dry sand as the tide goes out, I was getting lots of change and lots of garbage but it wasn’t why I was there. Tide was starting to go out so I hit the area the ring was in and I start to do my grid search. After around 45 minutes of searching I get a good signal and one scoop later I see his Black titanium ring.
I love what I do and I’m happy to get up anytime and go anywhere to help find a lost smile! The internet is amazing! A place where people can find help for pretty much anything…Now the public can have a 2nd chance to find what they thought was lost forever.

I get a call from a young lady who tells me her husband lost his platinum wedding band off a dock on the Fraser River…My first thoughts were I need a diver and that it could be a dangerous search as that river has a strong currant. After talking to her she said that her husband dove in and tried to search for it and that he was able to touch bottom at low tide.
This was encouraging as i don’t know of many fishing docks that you can touch bottom, we discussed the search and made a time to meet the next day at low tide.
I decided to bring my wetsuit and I’m sure glad I did as the water was very cold surprisingly! When I jumped in I could barely keep my head above water and that made it very hard to search on my tip toes! After 20 minutes or more I got a good signal but had a heck of a time trying to scoop it up. It was a chin deep water hunt!
Finally I checked my scoop and saw it in the basket so I put it in my hand and told them that my batteries had died and that I needed to change them…This bought me time to do the surprise reveal and capture the excitement on camera…
I love my job!
