Lost Wedding Ring - Pensacola, FL - FOUND!!!

  • from Orange Beach (Alabama, United States)

So apparently Pine straw is out there trying to steal some rings so be careful. 😃. A few days ago I received a call from Bill. Actually backing up, Shelly, Bill’s wife had heard about me from a friend and messaged me through Facebook. After a quick reply, she had Bill call me. Bill described that he had been working in the yard putting out some pine straw when he looked down and saw that his ring was missing. Bill had been wearing that ring for the last 38 years so I was willing to bet that he noticed it was gone quicker than most people would have. When I told him how I could help he decided he wanted me to come try even though he wasn’t 100% sure that it was in the yard. I was pretty sure that I could find it and I was determined to try. What Bill didn’t realize is that when I saw the address I noticed that he lived in the neighborhood next to mine. If there is one thing I like even more than helping people find a ring, it’s helping a neighbor find their ring. When I got there, I switched to the pinpointer coil so that I could get down between the bushes and Bill went back inside to let me concentrate. He didn’t have to wait long and was beside himself when I knocked on his door and told him his ring was perched on my detector by the tree (Covid safe 😷👍). He was even more surprised when he went to talk about a reward and I explained that I literally could have cut through the neighborhood and walked there. I wouldn’t take anything from my neighbor and new friend. I’m so happy that I could help!  Merry Christmas to you both Bill and Shelly!  God bless!

    Thank you so much Dave!!! I definitely panicked when I noticed that my wedding ring was missing. It has rarely been off my finger since January 8, 1983! I searched the flower beds where I had been spreading pine straw until after dark with no success. I looking into renting a metal detector, but my wife Shelly, through family/friends on Facebook was told about Ring Finders. Shelly reached out to Dave with a text message. After a near sleepless night, I called Dave the next morning just as he was reading Shelly’s text message. I was thrilled to find out that he lived in the neighborhood next to mine, and he arrived soon after my call. Dave is one of the friendliest guys you will ever meet. He has great equipment and he knows how to use it. Within 15 minutes he found my ring! As you might expect, I was ecstatic! Dave was definitely an answer to prayer! To top things off, since I was a neighbor, there was no charge for his services. What a Blessing!!! Angels do exist….I have one as a neighbor and new friend. This is by far my favorite Christmas gift this year! Thank you Dave! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
