Monday June 18th Jon and Cheryl were at Langford Lake boat ramp teaching their dog to swim. Jon told me, I do remember feeling it slip off when the dog I was holding started to swim towards shore. I remember my feet in the muck but I was facing the shore. I tried diving down when it happened and maybe I buried it with all the commotion. It’s platinum – not sure if that makes it harder to detect or not.
Cheryl contacted me June 26th, “Don can you help, My husband of just 9 months lost his wedding ring.”
I started searching that afternoon, After three failed attempts to recover this heirloom platinum wedding ring I returned one more time, it was bugging me that I was not able to recover and return this ring.
Well persistence paid off, found it and returned to a very happy couple.
I love my job.

Francis was gardening Saturday the 21st of April 2018 and while on a high bluff she took off her gloves and in doing so launched her white gold and diamonds wedding ring down the bluff into the deep vegetation below.
On the 23rd Francis found us on the internet and contacted me. I arranged to meet at her house and do a search.
With my trusty MXT and a pin pointer I started up the slope and within 15 minutes I had a major hit.
OMG this is one awesome ring and it looks great back where it belongs. Francis said “a lesson here is not to wear your rings gardening “
Colin placed an ad asking for help re: his lost wedding ring. After reading the ad I sent Colin an email saying I think I can help.

Days later we arranged for a search, I came with my trusty Whites MXT and bingo found it. OMG was Colin ever happy to get this very special 18K ring back.

Back Mid January Kenneth lost this wedding ring on the side of the road. He searched several times with no success. On Tuesday April 4th Kenneth emailed me
Hello! I’m afraid it’s been a couple months since this ring was lost but we were a little more confident than we should have been when we first dropped it. Out in deep cove a (I believe) white gold Band was dropped at the side of the road. I’m a little worried it may have been carried a ways by melting snow or rain, but I’m not sure how plausible that is. Its a rarely used section, we occasionally have someone park there, not more than a couple times per month.
I’m aware of roughly a 5×5 area I think it was initially dropped, but have been told by many people that white gold isn’t easy to detect. I’m mostly wanting to know how possible this could be after some time and with the metal involved, would love to pay someone good at this to find it instead of continuing to struggle.
I made arrangements with Kenneth to search today, by 10:05 am I was on site and started to search and within an hour I was able to send Kenneth a picture of his recovered ring.
Love my Job.
