Lost Platinum Wedding Ring Sugar Land, Texas (Recovered)

I received the following e-mail today after speaking with Dr. Shah last night regarding his lost wedding ring. Dr. Shah said he had lost his wedding ring the other day while playing soccer with several friends at a local park. Dr. Shan said he was playing goalie when he deflected a kick with his left hand and moments later discovered his wedding ring was missing. Dr. Shan said he and several of his friends spent time looking for his ring but were not able to locate it in the grass. We discussed trying to meet at the park today, but scheduling issue was not going to allow that to happen.

The plan was to use Google maps to pin point the location of the search area. I was familiar with the park having hunted it in the past to dial in new metal detectors and for general detector training. I was comfortable with the map plan, but I always like having the client on-site for a complete walk through.

Today’s e-mail

Go west on New Territory past 99.  Soccer fields come on the left.  We were playing on the very last soccer field before the woods (in this shot, it looks like a blank field).

Once you get to the field, I am almost positive I lost my ring in this fashion.   I was playing goalie and standing in the middle of where the red circle is.   My friend was standing at the X and shot a hard left footed shot.  The ball curved to my left.  

I got my hands on it, but the speed of the shot bent my fingers back.  The ball deflected off the post to my left.   I shook my hands to get rid of the sting while going to my left to get the ball.  This is when I noticed I didn’t have the ring on.

Depending on the trajectory of how I lost the ring, it could be anywhere within or slightly outside the red circled area


























I made it out to the park early this morning and used the provided Google Map to establish my
search area. I started with a Grid search in front of the goal and within just a few minutes hit a solid signal.
Dr. Shah was very acurate with his information which resulted in a fast and successful recovery.

    Way to go John…Nice recovery! I had a very similar search not long ago. He was a goalkeeper too…

  2. John,
    Another great (quick) recovery. That’s the way to go! Keep up the good work.

    Thanks again Officer Volek for the incredible professionalism and quick find! If there is anything I can do for you or your family in the future, please don’t hesitate. Of course, since I am a cancer doctor, I hope that you never have to call me! Please see below for the public message I posted on Facebook for all to see:

    After my mens league soccer game this past week, one of my teammates and I were shooting around the ball. I was in goal, and watched him send a screamer of a shot to my left. I moved and luckily got both hands on it. When I looked at my stinging hands immediately after, I saw that my wedding band was missing! Kapil Mathur literally blasted the ring off my hand!! The ring was no where to be found, even with 6 of my teammates looking for it on their hands and knees for almost 30 mins ( Christiano Hernandez even helped me until well after the lights were shut off). Afterwards, my wife amazingly found this service run by The Ring Finders John Volek went to the field the next morning with his detector and found my ring in under 10 mins. My wife and I are so appreciative, that I am giving him a public recommendation! Thanks again officer!

    Great work John! I had a similar search recently. We found part of the ring… unfortunately the lawnmower got there before we did.
