Got a call today from a girl crying that she lost her engagement ring on the beach and went to dicks sporting goods and bought a metal detector and couldn’t find it she told me that her wedding is on Saturday and if I could come down and find it. So I agreed. After an hour and a half ride I met her and her fiance and walked about a half mile out on the beach. After about 15 minutes she was crying again but tears of joy as I handed her her ring. This is why I love this hobby
Found a 1963 class ring a few months ago.after a couple months of searching for the owner. i was able to return it today. He lost it 55 years ago on graduation night while swimming. Was great to give something back to one of our veterans
Got an email yesterday from a girl that lost her engagement ring. About an hour away. She tried to get in touch with others but i was the 1st to respond. After asking a few questions i was sure the area was narrowed dow . She had also put a big rock where she was sitting to help me find the location, that was a big help. After about 20 minutes i had the ring and was able to meet up with her and return it.
I was emailed by a young lady that had lost her ring the day before in the water at the beach. The following afternoon i met with her and her father on the beach with girlfriend. After a quick introduction we started our search. The beach has a steep slope which led me to believe that the ring could have been pulled down. After about 40 minutes with no result i asked her if she was sure this is the location. She assured me it was but also added she went to the left a very short ways so i expanded my search.i could see after every passing minute her hopes were dimming. I worked my way up the slope and got a signal a shallow scoop retrieved the ring. Its a Massachusetts State Cheerleading Championship ring. It is probably a return I most wanted to do,
Hit an old swimming hole and found a couple of rings, after getting out of the water the guy who has been watching me every time I went in and always asked how I did, approached me asking how I did. I told him I had a couple rings and one was a class ring. he ask me what the school was and I told him he then says class of 71? I said yes , a girls ring another yes, he then gave me initials so I had to look and said yes. he then said her mother is right over there. I walked over to the mother and introduced myself and asked if she could have her daughter call me for I found her ring, she started to cry and said she would. After about 5 minutes I got the phone call .and made arrangements to give the ring back. the great part is the ring still fits
Got a call from a lady that her husband lost his ring while in the water in about waist deep. after arriving at the pond I headed down to the water and was met by the lifeguards, one of which told me a guy lost his wedding ring over there “pointing to the left” right near the buoys, I gave a little chuckle and told him I was contacted by his wife to see if I could find it. after about 2 minutes and an hour drive his ring was in the scoop. another great recovery.
Went on vacation back to Maine, went over to Mount Kineo to do a little water detecting. we had gotten off the ferry and had to walk almost a mile to the beach due to no cars allowed on the island only golf carts that you cant rent. So at about the halfway point a young lady pulled up behind us, telling us she had lost her ring ant the beach the day before and if we found it could we drop it off at the Pro Shop. she shoed me a picture of the ring and said she had went to Peru to study and that was were she got it. she said she couldn’t believe we were there, when she reported it to the Pro Shop there ferryman had said that 2 people just got off the ferry with metal detectors and was headed to the beach. she seemed to be in a hurry, but later found out that she was rushing to make the ferry trip back to the mainland. She offered to give us a ride to the beach which we excepted. once there I ask where she was sitting, she pointed to the area and before she could leave on my 5 swing she was reunited with her ring. After a few hours we headed back to the ferry. Once there the ferryman said, Great job on finding her ring she’s a great kid glad it worked out. As you can see in the photo she’s pretty happy to have her ring back.
Got a call from a friend asking if I wanted to help him find a ring in waist deep water. I said sure ill meet you there. we got to the location and started swinging after about 45 minutes I decided to move more off to the side the first target I got was the ring. My friend gave me the gentleman’s phone number so I called him stating that I found hit and made arrangements to meet the next day.He told me he wasn’t going to tell his girlfriend that I found it just that she had to meet a friend of his fathers. He also told me that the ring was given to her by an aunt that had passed about 11 years earlier. The next day I met up with him and introduced myself and asked her if she was having a good vacation she responded with yes, I said even though you lost this and held my hand out with the ring in it. I could see her eyes watering up a little with sheer excitement.
Got a call from Charlie to see if I could find his wife’s ring diamond wedding ring that was lost at the beach Charlie met me at the gate and I followed him out to the beach. he showed me where he was parked and told me that his wife had taken the ring off and put it in her shorts that she had taken off while there. After scanning the small area for about a half hour I was convinced this is not where the ring was, just a lot of trash was there. I asked him where else they were. He said he backed his vehicle straight back and showed me the area he was parked. As I was scanning my way in that direction I got that sweet sound I was looking for. about 2 inches down in the wet sand came out her ring. I picked it up and headed to Charlie, as I walked up to him I said I cant believe all the crap I’m finding out here. His response was what did you get this time, I said I got a piece of metal with a diamond in it and opened my hand and showed him his wife’s ring. I think I saw a tear form. He told me that the ring belonged to his mother who passed a couple years earlier and that he gave it to his future wife when they got engaged. That made this return extra special. as you can see in the picture he was defiantly relieved to have it back.
Got a call from a gentleman yesterday stating that he lost his keys while jogging. I told him i would meet him the next afternoon and i would see if i could find them for him. He showed me the area that he tossed his keys at so he wouldn’t have to carry them the whole time, after about a minute or so i got signal in all metal i reached down picked up the keys and handed them to him. He was delighted and i told him it’s never that easy. He said that he thought he tossed them a little farther up the brush row. He thanked me and allowed me to get the pictures to post here.
