Contact: 1-864-905-0297

I received a call from Jennifer yesterday over her  gold ring that was lost in a pond out behind her house while she was feeding the fish. I was able to set up a time this afternoon to go search for her ring. After a nice scenic drive I arrived at the location.  I suited up in my chest waiters and using my whites mx sport I entered into the water and was able to find Jennifer’s ring within 2 minutes in about thigh deep of water.  The mx sport vdi was 42

I was thrilled to find Jennifer’s ring for her. Jennifer told me she had contacted some closer ringfinders but never received any answers back, then she found me and said I was her best shot at locating her ring. You could tell how much this ring meant to her.

Lost wedding band recovered! Inman,SC

from Greenville County (South Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-864-905-0297

I received a text from Charles about his lost wedding band. I was able to text him back soon after that night and told him to call me and we would set up a time to search for his ring. Charles had lost his ring taking grass off his fishing equipment and he accidentally flung it off his finger which bounced once and rolled off the dock and fell in to the pond. After making several tries for the ring himself by feeling for it with his fingers he gave up. Charles posted a need to find his ring on craig’s list and was contacted by one of our ringfinder relatives from myrtle beach and told him to contact me.

I’m not 100% comfortable in pond water because its nasty,mucky and you sink 4 to 5 inches on each step. I brought my hip waders hoping they would be high enough to keep from getting totally wet. I was trying to dig signals in the clay bottom and after an hour I was wondering if I would ever find this titanium ring. I believe I chased this ring 2 ft before finally getting it in the sand scoop I was using.

Thank you Charles for the call and letting me find your ring and for the generous reward.

 

 

Lost rings recovered Greenville SC

from Greenville County (South Carolina, United States)

I received a call from Rick about his wife’s wedding and engagement rings lost while she was trying to fix a flat tire on a garden tractor. I was able to go out this morning even though it was raining. I was able to get the complete story about how the ring was lost. Ricks wife was taking off the front tire of the tractor because it was flat and needed repaired, so trying to protect her rings from being scratched or damaged she gave her son Jr the rings to put in his pocket for a short time till the work was completed. After jr and his mom went inside, jr went back outside to catch fireflies in the neighbors yard, and was called in later by his mother to get her rings back, only 2 problems, jr’s pocket had a ring size hole in it,and no rings in it.  I search the suspected areas where they thought the rings where and found nothing, so I moved into the neighbors side yard and found the first outer band in some tall grass   . I searched for another 30 minutes or so with the smaller second ring still not being found. To tell the truth I almost gave up because I believed it to be inside the house, but I wanted to give the side yard one more shot and at the 3ft from the neighbors gate I got that low signal of foil and saw the glint of gold and knew right away I found the smaller inside ring. I was able to return both rings.

Ricks wife went on to tell me that several years ago her rings where stolen from the NICU unit at our local hospital and pawned. After the Greenville police investigated they tracked down the thief and was able to recover both rings at a pawnshop. A great recovery by the Greenville police department.

If you have lost something very important to you give your local ringfinder a call.

 Elliott called me about his missing car key he lost while at work. Elliott said he was walking and talking outside in a small field next to his place of employment. (He noticed the set of keys which he was holding was missing his vital car key). So after an internet search he found me. I was able to meet him at his place of work and was shown the search area. After setting my coil to the soil I was able to recover his key in about 3 minutes. Elliott would now be able to go home.

Sometimes you never know what you will be called out to search for.

Wedding band recovered from lake. Greenville SC

from Greenville County (South Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-864-905-0297

I received an email from Tom about his lost wedding band. I was able to meet his lovely wife and she was able to put me in the area where the ring was lost.  Grabbing my gear and putting on my chest waders I waddled out 20ft in 4ft of water right off the dock to the area Toms wife had pointed out. I searched for about 8 minutes when I received my first signal of a low grunt. I had brought my T-REX scoop with me and on the first try for the target I had Toms ring in my scoop. So I waddled back to surprise Toms wife with it. You can always tell how much things mean to them and it showed on her face. So if you have lost something important… give your local ringfinder a call.

I want to say thank you for the generous reward.

Today I used my excal to find the ring.

I received a call from a young man named Nick about a lost gold medallion. I was able to get out to the location and start searching the area where nick thought it fell off at and within several minutes I received that foil/nickel sound in my headphones. I used my pin pointer to locate the signal and it was nicks medallion. Nick was a very happy young man.

I used my whites mx sport to find this medallion and the vdi # was 10-12-16 depending on the trash around it.
