FOR LOST JEWELRY CALL RAY 571.528.7217 MyGoldFinder will recover your treasure!!

I received a call on August 24th from a gentleman named Lyle in Loudoun County Virginia in the Leesburg area. I could tell he was very upset and asked if I was with theringfinders and if I could help him locate his wedding ring he realized he just lost. I received a few more brief details and within an hour was at his location. At first I was amazed at the sheer size of the ranch spread with about 40 Black Angus cattle (lots of calves) wandering the fields everywhere, then I thought about the search size, huge!!

I met Lyle at the main field and he commenced to explaining that he had been working the fields the day before, pulling large trees for burning from various locations across the spread including an 8 foot wide stream adjacent to the fields. As we continued to talk the search area became even larger as he indicated he’d driven the tracker down a approx. 300 yard gravel path towards the main gate and also had been around the upper house (built in the 1700s) and bull pen area, again a huge amount of property to cover. This by far would be the largest site I’ve searched for a recovery, but I was ready for the challenge.

On the first day we did some initial gridding and searching, Lyle even assisted with another detector, unfortunately no luck, but we were both very optimistic we’d find it and I planned on being back the next day. I made another couple of trips for several hours each time, gridding each section out to approx 100 yards at a time with red flags. No luck on these trips and so on one of the trips I decided to keep the flags in place so I knew where I had worked the previous day. I received a text that evening that Lyle and his daughter had to quickly remove the flags after he caught the cows eating them. On a subsequent trip I conducted a circuit around the house again and then the bullpen, then I retraced my steps with the previous grids and after no luck I decided to put on my wetsuit and booties to hit the stream, not too deep, very muddy (cows were usually always in the way here) but only about 8 feet wide and probably 40-50 yards long, again no luck.

So I’ll skip the final day. Sept 4. I was doing a slight retrace of the very original area and had a hit that was deeper that something I was looking for but for some reason I decided to dig it. After several minutes I saw a horseshoe and noted that it was facing up, facing up is good luck for those who believe! I pulled out the horseshoe, said a quick prayer that maybe today would be the day to return Lyle’s wedding ring to him. I moved slightly to the left of the main search field and in front of the large fire pit area and searched for about 15 minutes, Voila!! About 20 yards from the fire pit a strong hit and there it was lying under a thicket of grass. I called Lyle and he was so startled he said he had goose bumps and was immediately on his way back to the ranch.

A lot of work on this one but a fun time, the cows kept a constant watch on me and even had a group of 30 beagle hounds great me one day as they were being driven by four riders on horses. A great guy and customer reunited with a very sentimental ring, Thanks for calling me Lyle!!

    As a Marine I was looking for someone with not only the skill set to find my wedding band but the dedication to actually get it done. I was amazed when I first called Ray about his willingness to hear my concern and immediately come over to search (literally less than 30 minutes). The odds of someone doing that are extremely rare these days. Ray being a Navy veteran made me at ease from the very first meeting. His kind nature and willingness to hear my story was like no other. I could not believe his perseverance in finding my band despite numerous long days of 90+ degrees and extremely high humidity. Ray even got in a wet suit and searched in deep water but would not give up even when my hope was dwindling. I can not explain the excitement and goose bumps I had when he called me late Friday saying “Lyle, I found it”. At first I thought, that’s impossible given the scope of the search area but then came the photo in a text:) If you are looking for someone passionate about retrieving lost items with extreme integrity, Ray is easily the one. The deepest gratitude to you sir!
