Lost Necklace Found Scuba Diving Wisconsin Metal Detecting

  • from Twin Cities Metro (Minnesota, United States)

Joe was at a local swim beach on the St. Croix River. He was watching some kids doing handstands in the water and thought he would give it a try. He forgot about the 3.5-ounce gold necklace around his neck. As he tried the handstand his necklace slipped off into the water. He was standing in approx. 5 feet deep of water. His wife noted exactly where he was when the necklace slipped off. He searched by hand and also tried racking the area into shallow water though he just couldn’t find it. He talked to a couple of local divers who seemed a bit shady and decided on the ring finders. Joe found me on theringfinders.com website and we planned the next day for a scuba search. Scuba searching allows me the benefit of quick recovery, always getting the target that my detector locates and seeing what I’m dealing with. Such as old cans, iron chains, junk etc. I searched the area for approx. a half an hour when I got that beautiful “Gold tone” from my Excalibur metal detector. I cleared away the thin layer of sand and muck and could see the shine of gold from the sun’s reflection. I know how much this necklace meant to Joe, he was truly heartbroken and didn’t think there was much of a chance of recovery – What a great feeling to put the gold necklace back in his hands. :O)

Congrats Joe, I’m glad I could help out!!!

Take Care,

Wedding band lost Minnesota Lake scuba metal detecting found

  • from Twin Cities Metro (Minnesota, United States)

Anna & her husband were spending some time up at a friend’s cabin in Minnesota. While playing football in the water, her husband’s white gold wedding band was knocked off and lost in the lake. After searching the area as best as they could, they had given up hope of ever finding it. A couple years later they were talking with friends about the incident, one of their friends suggested theringfinders.com – So Anna checked online and gave me a call. The water level was about 3 – 4 feet where he lost it. I figured a shallow water scuba dive would give me the best chance at retrieval. We met up at the cabin and after many shot-gun shells & pull tabs, I found the ring about 5 feet from the dock in approx. 4 feet of water. Congrats on the ring!!!!!

 

Glad I could help out. :O)

Lost Apple Watch Scuba dive recovery Minnesota

  • from Twin Cities Metro (Minnesota, United States)

A young lady was jumping off a high dive platform at a local swimming beach. The pressure of hitting the water unsnapped her Apple watch that her grandfather gave to her. She was truly devastated at the loss and thought it was gone forever. Her boyfriend looked for help online and found theringfinders.comĀ  – He called me, and I set up a day to scuba and detect for the lost watch. It was found in approx. 20 feet of water and though low on battery power, the watch was still working perfectly.

Congrats and glad I could help!!!
