Received a call to look for a group of keys that he thought he had lost shoveling the driveway. One of the keys was to his car, which he could not move. Also a series of house keys and others. I started to search with CTX 3030. Found a lot of metal interference. Took rake and searched my signals along with my pinpointer. Nothing! There was a large pile of snow near some steps with a metal railing. Decided to use the pinpointer and buried it into the pile. BINGO!!
While doing a fall cleanup in Elmhurst, Illinois a gentleman lost his wedding band which he had for34 years. Went in the backyard with him and found it in under 30 minutes. THANK YOU FALL CLEANUP!!
While in transit to a ring hunt in Elgin, Illinois, I received a call from a woman asking me to come to Dekalb, Illinois after my search in Elgin, Illinois. Apparently her husband lost it while using the snowblower around Christmas. The snow had started to melt and they were still unable to locate the White Gold wedding band. I arrived at her home and went inside to have her fill out my search contract. She put on her coat so she could shoe me the area it was lost in. I stepped outside and looked down and picked up the ring. It was in plain view since the snow had just melted. No detector required. Probably my fastest hunt EVER!!
Man lost his wedding band in the snow in Lombard, Illinois. I did a quick search and recovered it for him on December 24th. Merry Christmas!!
Received a call to look for two rings in the snow. A diamond engagement ring and a wedding band. The 8 year old was playing with her friend and decided to throw the rings out the window. I never ask why!!
First found the wedding band. The owner never expected me to find the engagement ring. Found BOTH!!
Received a call from a gentleman who lost his platinum wedding band while walking his dog at night in the Roscoe Village area of Chicago.
It was dark and he slipped on some ice and may have broken his foot. He limped home and discovered that he no longer had his ring. He went back to the area that night and searched where he might have lost it. Nothing! He was uncertain whether if came off in the fall, or if he lost it coming home after the injury. He sent me an email with a google map image of where he though he fell. Since he was currently at the office with his foot elevated, he was unable to accompany me. After reviewing the image, I began the search using my CTX. Ten minutes later… BINGO! It was exactly where he thought he fell. Rang up as 12/10 and 11/13.
Received a text message asking me to look for a ring lost while doing fall cleanup in Wheaton, Illinois. There were 4 possible areas that it could have been lost in. Found it in the first area I hunted. Used my CTX3030. Rang up at 26 VDI.
Received a call at 7:30 PM from a gentleman who had lost his White Gold and Diamond wedding band while brushing sand off his arm as he and his family were leaving the beach after a wonderful 92 degree day on September 24th.
Fortunately he found the Ringfinders website while googling “how to find ring in the sand”
Fortunately he also had the correct idea to stay on the beach and mark the location with his shoes AND IMMEDIATELY call a ringfinder!!!
One hour later he had his ring back. I took an UBER to his location, since Oak Street Beach is located just off the Magnificent Mile in Chicago. Parking is non existent..
I found his ring in less than 1 minute along with some coins.
My first night hunt!
Gentleman and his family came to Glen Ellyn Lake Park to watch the cardboard post races on July 3rd.. While watching they moved to another location. The ring was in the cup holder of a chair. They were uncertain as to which location it came out or if it came out while going to the location.
I hunted the first location and thats where I found it. It came in at 11/22 on the CTX 3030. About a twenty minute hunt. Even the Park manager was surprised I found it. Needless to say I gave the manager my card for future loses.
