Janessa lost the keys to her apartment and mailbox while walking her retriever last evening. She and her friends searched but no luck. Her father found my number and she called to see if I could help. We detected the path she had followed and the places where they had stopped to play, a fairly large area. We searched for almost two hours, and were becoming pretty discouraged, when there they were.
I have been detecting for many years and, now that I am retired and have more time, I joined The Ring Finders organization. Over the years, I have had the privilege of returning objects of monetary or sentimental value found while enjoying the hobby. However, often the owner of a randomly found item cannot be determined. Thanks to The Ring Finders site, I’m now have the chance to now use my experience and equipment to find and return a valuable lost item when the owner is known. I can be found on www.theringfinders.com if you need help in the Eau Claire area.
While searching an old volleyball site, I recovered a large gold college class ring. From the date and a partial name engraved on the inside, I was able, with the help of the university, to identify and locate the owner. On the telephone, the owner’s wife recalled her husband losing the ring playing volleyball 24 years earlier! Needless to say, he was as surprised as he was happy to get the ring back.
