Lost Ring Westfield NJ… Found!!!

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

I recieved a text from a woman about 3 weeks ago whose husband had lost his class ring somewhere in their house.  I explained that I wouldn’t be much help in finding the ring inside, because of all the competing larger metal items.  I gave her some tips on where to look and sent her some good luck wishes.  Well, she texted me again with good and bad news.  Her husband had found his ring but… it was lost again, this time outside.  We made plans to look for it the following day.  When I arrived, her husband recounted how he had thrown a large stick into the brush and ivy along their property and watched his ring fly off.  He had a pretty good idea of where it landed, so this was a pretty quick hunt.  A couple of swings and the target was under my coil! Happy to reunite another ring and owner!! 🙂

 

Lost Property Stake in Washington NJ… Found!!!

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

One of my fellow Ring Finders Tracy received a call from Janet.  She wanted to know if he could find a buried property marker on her land.  Unfortunately, Tracy was out of town for work, so he referred her to me, and I was happy to help!  Janet was so super easy to work with and just a wonderful person.  She knew exactly where the stake was and once I had pinpointed it, she pretty much did all the digging (that never happens)!  I don’t often get calls about property stakes, so this was a fun departure from the typical ring hunt.  And, as always, I was happy to be of service and find the stake.  Another missing item recovered!!! 🙂

Lost Ring Morristown NJ… Found!

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

Adam called me looking for some help finding his platinum wedding band which he lost about a week and a half ago.  His 4-year-old son had asked to see the ring in the house, but then went out in the backyard and ran around.  Needless to say, the ring fell off while he was out in the yard and was lost in the grass.  We made plans to meet the next day at his house to search the yard.  I started my search close to the house and made grid lines with my feet.  About 75% through the yard, I got a solid 16 showing at a depth of 1 shovel on my Equinox 800.  Sure enough,   there was the ring.  It’s always a great feeling to be able to find and return a ring!  And, it’s even better when it’s a person as nice as Adam and his family! 🙂

Lost Ring Randolph NJ… Found!!

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

LT contacted me after losing his wedding band at the beach.  He had placed it in a zipper pocket in his tent and forgot to zipper the pocket.  When he was getting ready to go home the ring was nowhere to be found.  We made plans and met up at the local beach in Randolph NJ where he had lost the ring.  LT was great, he knew exactly where he had been sitting and was able to outline an area to help narrow down the search area!  I started searching the area that he had outlined, and I was able to locate the ring in about 20 mins.   So happy I was able to help reunite ring and owner! 🙂 And remember, if you have lost an item take note of the exact area you are in with landmarks or pins on Google maps.  It really helps in locating any item you have lost!

Lost Keys Long Branch NJ… Found

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

I received a call from a father whose son Eugene had lost his keys in the sand on West End Beach in Long Branch, NJ.  Luckliy, Eugene had an extra set of keys and had already made it home by the time I was called.  And even better, Eugene had dropped a pin on Google maps around where the keys were lost.  I headed out to Long Branch the following afternoon and using the map with the pin, I was easily able to find the right area.  After searching for a couple of hours, I had the keys in hand!  I’m happy that I was able to help out and Eugene was happy to have his keys back!

Lost Ring Saddle Brook NJ… Found

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

I received a call from Joe and his wife looking for help finding his wedding ring which he lost while fishing in the Saddle River.  After discussing the location and depth of the river where the ring was lost, we agreed to meet the next morning at the river.  Joe was awesome!  He knew almost exactly where he had lost the ring and was able to point me right to the location.  After a short search, I was able to find the ring under a small layer of silt.  I was incredibly happy to be able to return the ring!  I know the ring meant a lot to Joe, so it really meant a lot to me to be able to help!

Lost Ring Jersey City NJ…. Found

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

I received a text from Stuart saying he had lost his wedding ring while gardening on Saturday.  He said he knew it was in the bags of leaves and grass that had been cleaned up.  We set up a time for early the next day for me to come out and search the bags for the ring.  I arrived the next day and met Stuart.  He was awesome, out of the probably 15 bags of leaves he was able to tell me the three most likely candidates for the missing ring.  And, the ring was in the second bag.  He made my job easy, and I was very happy to be able to help Stuart find his ring! 🙂  

Lost ring Warwick NY… Found

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

I received a call from a very upset woman who had lost her wedding ring in the parking lot of the Ford dealership in Warwick, NY.  She said that it was in a grassy area not too close to the cars, so I hoped that on arrival I would be able to detect the area.  When I arrived, I was happy to see that there were no cars in the area where the ring was lost, and I was able to search the area with no problems!  After a quick 5 minute search, I got lucky and found the ring.  It really helped that the woman had an excellent idea of where the ring had been lost which really narrowed down the search area!  It’s always an amazing feeling to return a ring to the owner!  So happy I could help out!

Lost ring Denville NJ… Found

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

I received a late-night email from James asking for my help locating his wedding ring.  He said that he had been raking and bagging leaves earlier in the day and the ring had come off his finger.  We made plans to meet the next day and search for the ring.  When I arrived he had about 12-14 bags of leaves ready to scan with my detector.  We went bag by bag and got lucky around bag number six!  It was the second metal object that we pulled out of that bag and probably the 4th or 5th metal object that was in the leaf bags overall!  I was amped to be able to help return the ring to him!

Lost iPhone West Orange…. Found

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

I saw a post in my local community group about a young girl that had lost her iPhone while sledding.  I responded to the post that I would be happy to help find the phone and left my ringfinder.com link.  I was excited when I received a call from Anusha, the girl’s mom, requesting my help.  She said they had used the find my phone feature to locate the phone within about a 10-foot radius and offered for me to follow them to the location as there were several sledding hills on the road.  I followed them to the site and they showed me approximately where the phone was pinpointed with the find my phone feature.  I spent about 90 minutes working my way down the hill when I found the phone completely covered by snow!  I was happy to reunite iPhone and owner!
