After working in her garden, Michaela noticed that her engagement and wedding rings were missing. She contacted me and I came out that same day.
We just had some snow and a lot of leaves had fallen, making it impossible to find the rings without a metal detector. I picked up the wedding ring in about 10 minutes but I was getting a lot of interference from a metal fence that surrounded the area and couldn’t pick up the engagement ring.
We removed the metal fence almost immediately I got the familiar signal of gold. The engagement ring had fallen right by where the metal fence was.
Michaela was thrilled to get her rings back and it was great to help her out!
Thomas had tucked his run in his waste band before going on a jog and somehow the ring came out somewhere along the half mile jogging route that he took.
Thomas looked all over for the ring and posted flyers to no avail, so he contacted me and we met at the beginning of his jogging path the next evening. I had just gotten started swinging my detector when a lady drove by, saw the detector and asked if we were looking for ring! Fortunately for Thomas the lady had his ring and lived only a half block away.
Thomas was very happy to get his ring back and I was happy to be a part of it!
Nick was playing catch with a football when his gold wedding band flew off his finger as he was catching the ball. He and his friend did the right thing and marked the area with a tree branch before searching on their hands and knees for the ring.
After he lost hope in his search, Nick gave me a call and I agreed to meet him and his friend at the spot that evening. It didn’t take long to find the ring. It came in loud and clear and was about 10 feet away from the tree branch. Nick was very happy to put that ring back where it belonged – on his finger!
Richard was swimming under water in the lake by his dock when he felt his wedding band slip off his finger. He and his wife, Alyssa, looked hard and long for the ring, but it was lost in the silt at the bottom of the lake.
Alyssa called me and I agreed to come out that afternoon to hunt for the ring. There were quite a few old cans in the water and visibility was poor, due the silt I stirred up digging. After about 90 minutes, my floating sifter was full of old cans, can lids and shotgun head stamps. I finally dug the ring about 6 feet away from the dock in about 4 feet of water.
I hid the ring in my sifter amongst the trash and walked back to the dock. When I arrived, I set my sifter on the dock and told Richard that he should look through the trash in case his ring was there. Richard and Alyssa were thrilled to have the ring back and so was Richard’s mom, who was very nice to have there because she was very encouraging.
Andrea was walking on a snowy and icy sidewalk at her college in Minneapolis when she slipped and fell. She got up and shook the snow off her hands and the ring slipped off her finger and into the snow.
Andrea looked long and hard for the ring, but couldn’t find it. And, to make things worse, the snow on the sidewalk was shoveled a couple days later giving Andrea a much larger area to search. After a few unsuccessful attempts to find the ring, Andrea gave me a call.
We met at the location and, after about 45 minutes, I found the ring just barely under the snow in a snow pile next to the sidewalk where Andrea fell. It’s a beautiful ring and it looked even more beautiful sitting where it belonged: on Andrea’s finger.
Amanda spent the day in a local park with her two kids and husband hanging out in the grass for a while and then swimming at the man-made pond. While swimming, Amanda noticed that her wedding was missing!
Amanda emailed me and we both hurried to the park to find the ring. The ring was a big one and we were both concerned that someone might spot it and take it home with them. Amanda showed me the grass area where they spent a little time and the area in the water where she swam. Because Amanda had her baby with her, she left after a while as I was going over the grass area. I didn’t find it in the grass so I put on my dry suit and hit the water. I hunted the water for a little over 3 hours making sure I covered it thoroughly but didn’t find the ring.
I let Amanda know the bad news and she agreed to meet me back at the park that same evening to make sure I had covered the areas discussed. I ended searching the grass again and the path they took to to beach, but still no ring.
So we decided to meet one last time two days later just to make absolutely sure I covered everything. This time Amanda’s husband met me and he remembered that they stopped off first in a grass strip by the parking lot to put on sunscreen. We searched the 50 foot long area and, after about 30 minutes, we found the ring shining in the grass!
Amanda sent me a big thank you via text and her husband was absolutely thrilled to bring her ring back home to her.
Will was sledding down a little hill in front of his In Law’s house when his ring flew off his finger. The little hill wasn’t fast enough for him, so he was pushing against the ground to gain speed.
Will’s wife happened to be videoing him as he went down the hill and she showed me a video of the ring flying off Will’s finger and high into the air!
The ring landed quite ways farther than all of us expected, so it took about a half hour to find it. It was great to see it back on Will’s hand.
Dana and her husband were playing with their dog in a school yard. On the way home, Dana noticed that she wasn’t wearing the ring that she had made from the gold from her mother’s engagement ring.
Dana emailed me a couple of days later and, because the area was large, I took a buddy along to maximize the chances of finder her ring. We searched for about 2 hours in all the areas they remembered visiting that day in the field and, after not finding it in any of the areas, we started the search over.
The second pass was successful. The ring was just under a clump of grass near the swing set where they were playing. Dana wasn’t able to to come to the search, but I got a picture of her husband and the ring. He was thrilled to be able to give Dana the good news.
I didn’t get her name, but she was very unhappy about losing her ring in the lake while landing her kayak. She watched intently and was so hopeful that I knew I had just to find it. I searched for about 3 hours the first day in thick weeds and muck to no avail.
She agreed to come clean out the weeds with some of her friends and when she called me to say the weeds were cleared, I came back with a buddy to search the area again. My buddy found the ring tucked next to a rock about 3 hours into the hunt. She so happy to get the ring back. I’ve never seen anyone so happy to be reunited with their ring.
Her father was there the second day and he told me the sad story about her husband and that the ring was his.
Jenny was pulling weeds and planting flowers 10 days ago and, after finishing her work, she noticed that her hearing aid was not in her pocket where she had put it. She knew it had to be somewhere in her front yard because she had both hearing aids on while working and placed them both in her sweater pocket right after she finished her gardening while still out in the yard. Later that day only one hearing aid was in the pocket.
Knowing that hearing aids are not easy to find, I invited a buddy come help me search. Fortunately, he found it just off the front sidewalk of Jenny’s house tucked under some grass.
Jenny was thrilled to get the hearing aid back. This particular pair was very expensive.
