Lost Wedding Ring Sugar Land, Texas (Recovered)

Service Call  06/29/2013

I recieved the following email from a Sugar Land resident regarding a lost ring.

Hi John, I just read the story about  Richard Browne in Mass. who finds rings for people and he mentioned ringfinders.com.

I checked and to my surprise, I found you in Sugar Land, which is where I am.

My eldest son was in our pool 2 weeks ago splashing the dogs and he says his wedding ring flew off (he’s been married for two years).  I have a very old metal detector, and I am a rank amateur, but we tried to find it with no luck.  If it did fly off, then it’s in my back yard, but we just can’t find it. My wife and I go out in the yard looking for it  almost every day but we’ve found nothing.

So I am reaching out to you, to see if you can help us. At the worst I’d like to be able to tell my son it’s not there.

thanks and regards,
Mark Locascio

I made the short trip to Marks this morning with the new CTX3030 in hand. Mark pointed out the areas where he felt the ring might have flown of his son’s hand. I was initial a little apprehensive when Mark brought out his nice looking White Coin Master Metal Detector and explained he had already tried finding the ring. He said he had put another gold ring in the yard and was able to find it with no trouble.

That was a little bit of a sinking feeling 😉

I worked the same areas as Mark had previously described with his detector, and was not able to find the ring. I took a few minutes to think about the event that led up to the loss of the ring. I decided to work some a couple of flower beds well outside of the area identifed.

I opted for the hand and knees approach with my pin pointer on a flower bed that was riddled with metal distractions. The ring jump right out on my second sweep of the pinpointer.

Mark and his wife said they had given up all hopes that the ring would ever be found.

  1. John, thank you again for your help and finding our son’s ring. He and his wife were of course ecstatic!

    For those considering using John, he communicated with us on setting up a time and showed up when he said he would. He was completely professional and a pleasure to work with.

    From inside the house (I didn’t want to bother him) I watched him work the area I had previously worked and saw him rule it out fairly quickly. He then started looking at other places in the backyard that I hadn’t checked, then places closer to the original area. We were fortunate that he found it because the bed it was in had very thick monkey grass (that’s where the ring was) and electrical cables and pipes under it which makes it hard to find anything in that bed with my CoinMaster. The handheld did the trick!

    We’re very thankful to John and would definitely call him again if the need arose!

  2. Sometimes a better detector is necessary but most of the time it is the knowledge of the detectorist that is the key to finding things… Good decision to go with the handheld.. good detective work.
