Metal Detector Rental

I’ve been on a lot of lost ring hunts over the years.  I’ve found 65 rings to date and probably not found another 65.  Every hunt is different, and I rarely say no to a search.  When I got a call recently to look for a ring along the side of the road … I couldn’t say no.  As many lost ring finders know, side of road searches are tough.  There is a ton of trash and it’s dangerous. This search was for a lost ring that was lost after a head on car accident.  Unfortunately, the driver was killed and his ring was never found.  After reading a story about another lost ring hunt I did in the paper, the woman called me to see if I could search for her late husband’s lost ring. Her family had thought about looking for a metal detector rental, but wisely called a professional instead.

Even though the ring had been lost months earlier, it was still sitting just below the grass.  Can you spot it in the picture? Check out the full story below about why you shouldn’t look for a metal detector rental either and instead call a lost ring finder. Included in the story is also a link to the full video which ran on my local NBC station.  They such an amazing job telling the story of the couple and the lost ring and why it meant so much to her. It is moving, so make sure you have a tissue ready.

    Great Story! I understand that it’s hard to not try these types searches. I also agree that for every successful recovery, I have probably one unsuccessful search. If it’s not there you can’t find it, but you can eliminate an area where the list item maybe.

      Thanks Stan Ross … how could I say no? Not sure if you get “feelings”, but I can usually tell if a hunt is going to be a success or not after hanging up the phone. I had a good feeling about this one, and so glad I was able to return it to her.

  2. Well done! It’s also nice when you can give back what was gone forever.
