Lost Pendant found in Calgary

  • from Cochrane (Alberta, Canada)

Second Time’s a Charm.

May 14, 2020– I was given a reference from another detectorist that had tried to help earlier in the day. Lena had lost a very small white gold pendant off her necklace when it was snagged on a tree branch while mowing the lawn. When I called her she was hesitant as there was only an hour left of light and she had an early start to her next day at work. Besides, the other detectorist had spent a couple of hours and had searched the entire yard. I told I would get there asap and would quit when she needed to call it a night. She agreed. When I arrived, I asked all kinds of questions and had her show me what happened. Based on her description, I was pretty sure it would be very close to where it happened. Using the sniper coil proved to be the right tool. After 10 minutes of searching, even the faintest signals, we came across one about two steps from where it happened. Deep in the grass among the roots was a tiny glint. At first I thought it was tinfoil, but upon closer inspection it turned out to be her pendant. Her first anniversary gift from her boyfriend. I know we are doing the covid social distancing thing, but I didn’t have a chance.  She gave me the biggest hug while I was still kneeling on the ground. It felt great to get a hug and great to help someone out.

This is what Lena said.

I was mowing my lawn and a tree branch caught my necklace and broke the chain, my diamond pendant was gone. I searched for hours through the thick grass with no luck. I was very upset as my boyfriend gave it to me on our first anniversary . Someone suggested I get a hold of the metal detecting club. One guy came out and searched my entire yard with  no luck. He told me it would be hard to find as it was half the size of a pinky nail and was white gold with diamonds and wouldn’t put off a strong signal.  I thought it was gone forever. Then I got a call from Evan and he convinced me to have him come out and take a look. I was so happy and astounded that he was able to find it in 20 minutes. thanks Evan, you put the biggest smile on my face.

Lost Earring Found in Calgary

  • from Cochrane (Alberta, Canada)

May 12. 2020 –  Got a call tonight. Young lady playing volleyball in the back yard. While ducking under the net she caught her earring in the net and the diamond stud was gone!!  Since they had a good idea of where it was, I put my sniper on and scanned the earring that she still had. Off I went to work. It is amazing how much grass gets compacted when people crawl on their hands and knees looking for a lost item. I certainly wasn’t under the net.  I asked her to recreate what happened. When she did, it was evident that the stud may have been sling shotted a distance away. Started a search in the new area and sure enough, there it was. About 6 feet from the net. I pointed it out and she pounced. Big smile!!

A Broken Heart Over a Lost Heart.

May 6– Mimi called me up and asked if I could find her lost pendant. She had taken off her jewelry and added her ring to the necklace. Later, while walking her dog, she took the jewelry out of her backpack and when she removed her ring, the tiny heart pendant that her mom gave her before she passed away fell into the grass. After searching and giving up she called me. When I arrived she took me to the spot just
 on the side of the pathway where she thought it might be.  Ten minutes later, she had it in hand and tears flowed.

Lost ring found in Okotoks

  • from Cochrane (Alberta, Canada)

Rings Can Fly

May 1 – I received a call from a gentleman living out Okotoks way. His wedding band had gone missing. Turns out that that meant he had in an off moment, taken his ring off and thrown it off the balcony the previous weekend. After having unsuccessfully searched for it in the area where it landed he called me in. He was right about where it landed. It wasn’t hard to find with the detector but it was laying totally flat with a stone in the middle. A quick search and a grateful owner.
