Received a call from a gentleman that while walking on a dock where his boat was moored had his mobile phone slip out of of his pocket and into the shallow waters of Lake Washington. I meet up with Jeff and he showed me the precise location of where the phone went into the water. Being his prime business phone he was eager to have it recovered.
His Samsung Galaxy S8 is a water resistant phone keeping us hopeful that it may still work. Even if it the phone was totally flooded Jeff needed the phone to utilize the lost / damage insurance policy. After a bit of searching with a metal detedtor the phone was found in the precise location of where it fell off the dock. To our surprise it was still dry inside and operating as intended. Having been found in five foot of water saved the phone for sure. Another fun recovery on a cold wet Seattle day…
Back in September of this year Travis and Cora reached out TheRingFinders looking for an under water search specialist to recover their lost wedding band. After a full day on the lake Cora was passing the ring to her husband when it got fumbled and fell to bottom of the lake. It was fortunately in a shallow area in what seemed to be a very simple recovery. Travis dove down several times over a course of weeks then hired a diver from the local dive shop with no success. He then found me though TheRingFinders and my first free diving attempts with my detector wound up insufficient. As the months went on I would occasionally send a note to them that I had not forgotten their lost ring in the lake as I was in the process of getting the proper dive gear and training.
Now December with the holiday season upon us, I was now fully kitted and trained enabling me to make a return visit to the lake to compete the mission. On the day of the recovery Cora and Travis were unaware that I was making another attempt. So we took the opportunity to surprise the family with an exciting ring recovery return…
Watch this video to see the exciting revel when we reunite the ring to its owners!
Noticed a post on Christmas day about some lost keys in the local area. I decided to reach out to the gentleman to gather more details and determined the keys were certainly lost in an isolated location. Rob said he didn’t even think to look for a metal detector but was glad to let me take a crack at finding his items. Day after Christmas with some snow still on the ground, I geared up in full cold weather gear and jumped into a murky mud pit to recover his work keys and a remote control. Another happy recovery made possible by the means of medal detection.
Chris was doing some yard work when his gold wedding bad got lost in the mulch. Very concerned his wife made a post to social media seeking help from anyone with a metal detector. It was a great pleasure recovering Chris’s ring and seeing it returned to his finger.
Helped a very sad boy find a very precious ring from his mother. The kids were playing frisby in the street when the ring flew off in to the neighbors yard. Made a quick appearance this dark evening to preform a search.This young man was very happy to get his ring back!
Man looses platinum wedding band while playing soccer with his son when ring flies off his finger into the yard. He tried using a rented metal detector but without having prior experience was unable to locate the ring.
Man thinks he lost his one of a kind commissioned wedding ring at Point Defiance Beach during the 4th of July. He soon after found his ring in his garden by use of a handheld metal detector. I share this search to illustrate how metal detection equipment ultimately brought this guys ring back to his finger.
On this hunt I did find a nice silver rings on the beach!
