Louise`s daughter and friends were out of High School enjoying the recent snow fall when she realized she had lost her mothers gold ring and her silver finger splint. Louise had 6 school friends out three times searching for the rings, they even used a metal detector to no avail. I was out of country, but as soon as got home my wife gave me the message and I arranged to meet Louise at the location. It had been almost 2 weeks since the loss, she gave me the story and showed me the trail they took from the school to the park, and were they played throwing snowballs, I told her that would be the prime location, take me there. Once we arrived at the location low and behold we looked down and there was the gold ring melted out of the snow, the silver finger splint took a little more searching but we were successful. I made another friend.
Karen and her family were travelling from Vancouver to Vernon in the Okanagan for Christmas with friends, they stopped at the Merritt Tourist Booth on the way. Playing in the snow with the kids Karen lost her custom woven ring. Once in Vernon she found my site on The Ringfinders and we arranged to meet at the loss site on her way home. The Tourist Booth was 110 Kilometeres from my home over a mountain pass,( The Highway from Hell) fortunately the snow was not too bad, my plan was to grid the area of the snowball throw, then the parking lot. During my grid search, Karen was kicking the snow from the throw area and out popped the ring, a successful team effort. Karen was delighted to have the sentimental ring back on her finger.
Josh was out in his yard throwing snowballs with his son, when he noticed his custom made wedding ring was missing. He could have waited until the snow melted, but his home is on the Real Estate market, so he went and rented a metal detector hoping to find it, with no success he looked on line and found my site on The Ringfinders. I told him I would be there the next morning, it was -12 and cold on the hands, but within 10 minutes he had the ring back on his finger. Another Merry Christmas.
Gail and her husband Trevor just completed the yard cleanup of fall leaves, when they noticed Trevor had lost his wedding ring. They called me and I advised then not to discard the bags of leaves until after my search, experience tells me that that is the prime location for a lost ring. I responded the next day and searched all the yard and quickly scanned the 20 large garbage bags of leaves with no success. I told them I would return and go through each bag separately. I returned 2 days later and started emptying each bag and scanning the contents. Success on the 13th bag I got a strong signal which turned out to be the wedding ring. December would be their 53rd wedding anniversary, they were happy to have the ring back.
After shopping in West Kelowna, Leanne and John parked their vehicle on the street and took their groceries indoors. A short while later John realized he had lost his key set somewhere in the snow. Leanne recruited all the kids in the street to help find the keys, with no luck after two hours, then she called me for assistance and I responded immediately. The snow had been shoveled from the street and their driveway, so I started the search at their vehicle, then worked my way along the snow on the side of the driveway. Success the keys were found four inches deep in the driveway snow.
Ed was renovating his back garden when he noticed his wedding ring was missing, his wife found The Ringfinders website and he called me. I responded the next morning and checked out the worksite, he had removed the old flowerbed and replaced it with landscape cloth covering and bark mulch. My initial suspicion was that it would be in the debris in the back of his pickup, but I started my search at the new garden. That was a good choice as I found his ring under the bark mulch and landscape cloth within five minutes.
Leah was enjoying a hot day on the beach in Kelowna B.C., she took off her rings so as not to lose them. Usually she puts them in her wallet for safe keeping, but her wallet was not handy so she put them in the chairs cup holder. At the end of the day her husband picked up the chairs and they went back to the hotel. When washing her hands Leah realized the loss of the rings, they went back to the beach to search for them, to no avail, Leah`s husband said they are gone someone has picked them up. Distraught leah searched the internet for help, finding The Ringfinders she gave me a call, I told he I would meet her at 6am on the beach. I arrived at the beach at 5am to beat the beach grooming machine, I noticed where they had searched on the sand and found the rings easily. When Leah arrived, I told her to give me a hug, then I handed her the rings, needless to say she was delighted, she told me she had not slept all night worrying about the loss. Another happy customer.
