Christina McCree – Ring Finder for northern Alabama and southern/middle Tennessee…call or text ASAP, anytime 24/7…610-504-6135
On Tuesday (February, 22nd, 2022), I received a text message from Amy stating that she had lost a very important family ring on her farm in Muscle Shoals, AL. Amy had been filling a tractor with diesel fuel. She got some of the fuel on her hand and it caused her ring to slide around. She took her ring off and put it in her pocket. Amy then used the tractor to move some dirt and debris around from point A to point B and C. After she finished the yard work, her ring was no longer in her pocket.
Amy mentioned that she had actually lost her ring around the beginning of December. She thoroughly searched the area she was working and even bought a metal detector, but was unable to find her ring. After a couple of months had passed, Amy thought that she might never see her ring again, but she then she came across The Ring Finders Metal Detecting Service! Amy was reading a book that told a story of how a ring was lost during a wedding ceremony. Someone mentioned that they should call a “Ring Finder”. This prompted Amy to go on Google and was soon led to The Ring Finders website and discovered that I was listed nearby. We scheduled a search for Sunday, February 27th, when we were both off from our regular day jobs.
I met Amy at her farm in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, early on Sunday morning. Amy proceeded to show me where she was working and exactly what she was doing at each location. I told Amy that she could go inside and warm up while I conducted my grid search of the area. It had been raining almost nonstop for the past week. Thankfully, the rain held up long enough for me to conduct a search.
I started my grid search with my Minelab Equinox 800 in front of the shed where Amy had been refueling her tractor. Just a few minutes in and I received a solid tone in the women’s gold range. As I moved my coil to the side, my eyes locked onto the gleam of a ring just barely sticking out from the grass. What a beautiful sight! I didn’t move the ring, because I wanted to show Amy just how easily rings hide. Our eyes play tricks on us and it’s almost impossible to find a ring with just eyesight alone. I snapped a few pictures and went to knock on the door and tell Amy the good news.
Amy couldn’t believe how fast I found the ring! I took her to the spot and gave her the honor of picking up her gorgeous 10k gold ring from where it’s been hiding these past few months. Amy was so happy and thankful that she had her ring back! She gave me a big hug and I could feel the stress melt away. These returns are really one of the best feelings in the world and one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done! I thank God for another successful ring recovery!
After the search, Amy and I were chatting for a while. She told me that she enjoyed reading my blog posts about my prior recoveries. Amy then said that she really hoped that her story would turn out the same way…a happy ending. Well, it sure did!
