Lost Wedding Band Found in Toronto..!!

  • from North York (Ontario, Canada)

I had a call last night from Mehran about his lost wedding band in downtown Toronto.

Mehran had finished shovelling his driveway after a large snowstorm we had here, and then removed his gloves.

He then started to brush some snow off his pant legs and then felt his white gold wedding band go flying.

Mehran heard his ring bounce off of something and it was gone.

After trying to locate the ring around his driveway with no luck, I got the call.

I was able to make it down to Mehran’s home this morning in Toronto, Saturday February 9, 2013 around 10:00am and then asked him a few more questions.

He told me that after he lost the ring, he shovelled a little more snow off of the walkway leading to the front door and had piled the snow up onto a large pile beside the driveway. I had a feeling it would be in this large pile.

After grabbing my gear and getting set up, I eliminated some snowy areas on the driveway and then started scanning the top of the large snow pile along the walkway and driveway.

After a minute or so I finally got the signal we were looking for.

I pinpointed the area and then used my pinpointer to find the exact location of the signal. After brushing about eight inches of snow off the top of the pile , Mehran’s ring came into view.


It appears that the ring must have been scooped up by the shovel and tossed on top of the pile last night.

This was a relatively fast search and the smile on Mehran’s face was great.

Thank you for the generous reward.

It was really nice to meet you today.

Take care,

  1. Mark, nice to hear about your techniques (asking all the correct questions, elimination of other areas, evaluating the area to search, etc.). It help everyone else that might encounter the same situation. Hopefully, I will not encounter snow (I’m in southern France) however, the basics are essentially the same on most hunts. Thanks again
