The streak continues! 100% success in recovery since I became a search member of The Ring Finders! This time the lost items were in Centreville, Va. About 90 minutes from my residence. I got a call from David this past Saturday. I could hear the concern and panic in his voice, but luckily he contacted me immediately and gave a very accurate account of what he was doing and where he suspected he lost the rings. Because of that, along with the help of my buddy Lance, we have yet another successful recovery to add to the list.. I’ll let David tell you how things went down in his own words.
I had just finished cutting the lawn at my home in Centreville, VA, trying to beat the rain showers that were slated to move into my Northern Virginia location later that evening, when I realized that my Grandfather’s diamond ring and my wedding band of 30 years were missing from the little finger of my right hand where I wore them both. (This because of late life weight gain!) I was certain that they must have come off while I was emptying the lawn mower cuttings into plastic bags. However, after a careful search of three bags of clippings, and repeated searches of my yard, I could not locate the rings. When I told a neighbor what had happened and that I was considering buying a metal detector he suggested I hire a “Ring Finder” to come a search my yard for the rings. I had never heard of such a thing, but a quick online search took me to the Ring Finders web site @ http://theringfinders.com/ The closest ring finder to my location was Jim Wagner of Pasadena, MD. I called his number and told him about my situation. He was very personable and wanted to help me, but he wasn’t sure if he could get to my until the following weekend, however he said he would check with a friend of his to see if he could help me sooner. The prospect of living with my loss for a week without doing anything was worrisome to me so I decided to purchase an inexpensive metal detector and give it a shot myself. Fortunately, Jim called me back the next day and said he could come and assist me that very afternoon. This was very encouraging to me as my attempts to use the metal detector I had purchased were not yielding the desired results. Jim and his partner Lance arrived at my location within a couple of hours of his call and began to search immediately. Jim had told me in our previous phone conversation, (and as you can see on his web page), that he has a 100% success rate. I found that statement to be very encouraging, however, I couldn’t help but thinking that I would be the one to break his streak! As they began to search my front yard, I went around back to put my dog in the house as she was barking hysterically. After putting my dog in the house, I was about to make a call to my wife and let her know that the Ring Finders were here and searching when there was a knock at my front door. When I opened it, there stood Jim and Lance, my rings in hand! It literally took them less than 5 minutes to find them! I can’t tell you how amazed and appreciative I was! These guys are good at what they do! So if you ever find yourself in a similar situation, don’t despair, just call the Ring Finders! I give them my highest recommendation.
Thanks David for the endorsement! I’m glad the rings are back where they belong!
