Fox News Lost engagement ring buried in the sand at Encinitas beach C.A

  • from Carlsbad (California, United States)





Engagement ring found buried in the sand by two professional Ringfinders.

Encinitas ca, Monday 5/16/15  I received a  text From John Hughes  My Good friend from TheRingfinders and said he needed help on a search and the large diamond ring had a very small and thin platinum band with very little metal also the couple rented metal detector two days ago when the wind blew there seat and umbrella fell many feet over with the Ring in the cup holder.

I’m thinking to myself.. (Wow)..I just helped and returned with John Hughes a Diamond ring this morning  to a happy couple and Sentimental story to tell that day..Then I texted John (on my way 15 min E.T.A) see you there. When I arrived I had noticed the husband with a rented metal detector Griding and swinging like a pro.However 3 different  detector machines had scanned the small beach and short area where it was lost so walking down the long steep trail path I was observing and losing a little hope but Knew I had My Garrett infinium L.S. Pulse induction machine wich is very sensitive to deep and small gold in the most roughest & mineralized conditions.


I began cross griding a 30’x30′ area for 15 minutes when John turns his machine off said keep going that away and he walked over to Scott With his soon to be Wife Mrs. Ozuna.

15 seconds later I get a faint high/low  ring sound in the gold range,scooped..and OMG no way! I instantly was laughing in Joy Looking at the 3 of them hysterically like I won the lottery and Made a miracle actually happen.They ran over and after hugs,Tears and relief we could all hear the local and friendly crowd above beacons beach cheering as the sun was setting.The Most amazing day for us ALL.Thank you You all out there Who got to share this wonderful Moment on the news channel.

    Great team work guys…70% of the people who call me have already rented a metal detector and spent hours sometimes days searching…Good equipment and knowledge goes along way! Congratulations on finding another smile! Happy Hunting!

  2. Thank you Curtis Cox and John Hughes for finding my fiance’s engagement ring!You guys are the best. Both of you saved my marriage before it has even happened and a big chunk of change. haha.
    I had already spent an entire day grid-ding the beach and searching with a metal detector with no luck so I needed some additional reinforcement. I found the ring finders website on an internet search. My initial call was to John who in about five minutes came out to the location of the beach where the ring was lost. After grid-ding the beach with John and searching with metal detectors we had no luck for the first half of the day.John then said to me, “I will be back with my partner (Curtis Cox) around 6:15PM (a few hours later near sunset) to go over everything again.” Sure enough John showed up with Curtis at 6:15PM and we all started searching with no initial luck until Curtis came up with the big find! Stacie and I are so thankful and grateful for both of you and the service you provide. I hope you guys continue helping people. Thanks again!
