Gold wedding band found.!! Ajax, Ontario.

  • from North York (Ontario, Canada)

Ratnam called me on Sunday, February 28th to ask me if I rented metal detectors. I told him that I did not, and only offer my detecting service.

He was determined to rent a metal detector to find his wedding band that he had lost a few days earlier around the front of his house while he was throwing bread to some birds on the front lawn.
Well, Ratnam called me again yesterday, Monday March 1st and said he had no luck finding his ring after he spent ten hours searching for it.
We made arrangements for me to arrive at his home this morning and hopefully help him find his ring.
I met Ratnam this morning and he walked me through what had happened a few days earlier.
He was holding bread crumbs in his left hand and grabbing them with his right to toss to the birds on the front lawn.
At one point he grabbed some crumbs and actually pulled his own ring off with them.
He heard his ring clink on the porch and it immediately disappeared.
I grabbed my gear and began in all the logical places the ring could have rolled off to. I grid searched everything with no luck.
I turned my detector off and had to lay on my stomach with my pinpointer and crawled under the cedar trees beside the porch. This wasn’t much fun as it was -21° with the wind chill this morning.
After clearing all the bad targets out from under the cedars, still no ring.
As a last ditch effort, I grabbed my trusty flashlight and looked around the eaves trough downspout beside the porch.
Sure enough, I caught a glint of gold under a leaf right beside the porch wall and downspout.

I had to use a screwdriver to lift the ring up and out from beside the wall and pull it forward so I could reach it.

I told Ratnam the good news, took some photos and I was on my way.

Nice to meet you today Ratnam and happy I could help out.

Take care,

Mark Ellis

      Like the rest of the Ringfinders, we love puzzles and we don’t leave until we figure it out.
