VMI class ring recovered Taylors SC

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


I received a text  from Travis’s wife about finding her husband’s VMI class ring.  I was able to meet Travis and his daughter this last Friday and heard his story. Travis said he had thrown an apple core off a friends back deck when his VMI class ring went sailing with it.  Travis had searched several days trying to find his ring with no luck. I started my search in front of the deck area then moved outward. I finally was able to get a shallow signal and using my pinpointer  to brush the grass aside. Boom there it was..

I was shocked at the size of his ring. One of the largest ring’s I have ever seen. I called over his daughter and she picked  it up and cleaned it off then we tried to surprise him. But he knew something was up when he saw both of us standing there waiting on him to come off the deck .. that’s when she gave him his ring.

You could tell his ring was very meaningful to him and having his daughter there to give it back to him was an awesome moment.

Thanks Travis for trusting me enough to find your ring.

Hi

I received a call this afternoon  from Spencer. Spencer explained that had lost his wedding band Cycling with a fellow rider. Both riders hit the same dip in the road and both riders went down hard.  (traveling nearly 40mph )

I was able to meet Spencer where the crash    occurred and started searching the roadside for at least an hour with no luck. I search up and down both sides of the roadway thinking the ring could’ve rolled down the road. Finally I Received a strong 45/47 on my whites mx sport and located Spencer’s lost ring close to were he had fallen.

I texted him a picture of it and could tell he was one happy guy since just getting Married several months ago.

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

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

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.
