I received a 911 call from wonderful lady, whose name is Jessica. What happened was her 3 year old daughter got into Jessica’s jewelry box to play with the rings and things. Then the daughter went out into the back yard with the box and proceeded to lose Jessica’s engagement ring and wedding band. When Jessica found out what happened, of course she had a sense of panic and loss. Although upset, she forgave her daughter and searched the yard. She was able to find the engagement ring but not the wedding band. Her husband borrowed a metal detector from a family member and searched the yard but only found out the there is LOTS of metal buried in every yard. That’s when Jessica went on-line and found “The Ring Finders” website. (www.theringfinders.com)
While we talked, trying to set up a time to search, we discovered that we both available that evening. Jessica only lives some 5 minutes away, and we had about 2 hours of daylight left so I decided to go right then and do a quick search of her back yard. I arrived, questioned Jessica as to where she had found the engagement ring, and the general layout of the yard. I set up my grid and started searching. As the ring was lost only a few days ago, it would not be buried deep into the lawn, so I could ignore all the signals that were deep and not gold, and there were lots of those signals. I went up and down the lawn checking with my pin pointer all the signals that the big detector detected. The first four or five came back strong but they were buried, and a ring lost just a couple of days would be lying on top of the soil, although it would be under the grass and invisible to the necked eye. I got another signal, checked with the pin pointer, moved the grass and, there it was !!!, now it’s time to give the ring back to the Jessica.
I filmed the search and the recovery. It’s a short (5 minute) video, so if you are interested, click on the link below and enjoy. Jessica’s response if precious.
