… Natasha takes her dog out to her neighborhood park every morning in Costa Mesa, CA. This morning walk turned into a  disaster for her, while throwing a ball for her dog her special Cartier trinity ring flew off her finger into the grass. A few minutes searching the grass she realized she would need help. Natasha found my information on a google search that brought up TheRingFinders directory.

After calling me, I was able to meet her at the park within an hour. She had marked the place where she was standing when the Cartier Trinity ring came off he finger. This ring was given to her by her mother and her sister’s also have identical rings. It’s a classic ring that is made with three separate rings white gold, rose gold and yellow gold joined together like a puzzle. This should be an easy ring to find with a metal detector. 

After a half hour searching directly in front and in back of where she was staging when the loss occurred. We found the ring in the grass outside the zone where it should have been. Possibly it may have been blown to the left by strong winds that morning. Maybe she didn’t mark the spot where she standing while throwing the ball? It does seem to be a fact after doing many searches, the item is never where they think it is .. Sometimes we never know what happened, the main thing is the sentimental ring was found.  Needless to say, Natasha was extremely happy and grateful to have this ring returned after wearing daily sence she was a teenager.

… We had snow in the mountains of Southern California. When that happens many who reside in the city make a run to the nearby mountains. The first day of the snow, Linda was able to take her kids to Mt.Baldy which is an easy drive. After taking photos of her girls she put her iPhone 13 in her jacket pocket. Later that afternoon while it was snowing heavily, she realized the phone was missing.

She was sure the phone was in the soft powered snow but the area was probably 50’x50’ area. It was snow hard on that Thursday afternoon so they had to get down the mountain before the snow was too hazardous to drive. Linda and her friend returned Saturday with shovels and couldn’t find the iPhone. Celphone service is non existent at that 6000ft. elevation, making it impossible to use the find my iPhone app. They were again unsuccessful at finding the lost phone.

Linda called me Saturday night asking for help. We agreed that Sunday would be crazy busy with cars and people in the area of the loss. We had set up Monday morning to meet in the spot where the loss occurred. We carefully coordinated the time and place to meet because there is zero celphone reception there. 

I arrived 20 minutes before Linda and her friend, Arizona arrived. The snow had melted and frozen over the last two days. It was about 2 ft. deep and the top 12 “ was solid like an iceberg. Not very encouraging for easy digging. As it turned out Linda’s friend had purchased a inexpensive metal detector at a Walmart. He had no idea how to use it. I took a couple minutes to show him how to set it up. Then we both took a section of the area to scan. Shortly after we started he called me over because he had a signal. I put my detector over the spot and immediately knew the size and ID numbers match what had to be a celphone. 

He wanted to chip away with a shovel on the hard packed frozen snow. I would not let him. I used a small pick-like tool to patiently scratch the surface till we could remove the phone. (10 plus minutes) We didn’t need to do all this work of two days of searching to damage the phone by carelessly digging. Long story, but there were several unexpected twists that I had to share.. I live at the beach, I know hardly anything about retrieving items lost in the snow. That doesn’t mean we can’t find them, first thing to remember is you can’t find a lost item if you don’t try.

It was a pleasure to meet Linda and her friend Arizona, I am happy to be able to do these searches. Linda was also happy that she found me through TheRingFinders directory of independent metal detectorists.

*** Karisa called me after locating my contact information on The RingFinders directory. She said her mother’s gold chain and pendant was lost in the sand at Newport Beach, CA. I was just finishing another search at Huntington Beach, CA., five miles from where Karisa thought her mother’s chain could be. My concern was the incident happened four days ago on the towel line.

I explained to Karisa that four days on this area of the beach may be too late. There is the Beach King sand sifting machine and a chain might have been picked up by another person on the beach. The location she gave me verbally over the phone was easy to find. I stopped by on the way home, walked out on the beach and began a grid search. Four 30ft grid lines was all it took to find this gold necklace that Karisa’s mother had been given 20 years ago while in Egypt.

Sometimes I think I know my local beaches. I would have never bet that this gold chain would still be here after all this time. I called her with the good news. She was very happy and grateful as she knew how much this Neckless meant to her mother. The only thing she didn’t know was how lucky we were that the necklace was not cleaned up in the beach sifter or found by a random beach comber. This is why I always try to search these seemingly impossible type searches.

*** Allen and his friends were at beach front home in Newport Beach, CA. 92660. He was wearing his gold diamond watch with a matching gold diamond ring. These were both very expensive and very sentimental as Allen had been given these to celebrate a special occasion.

Sometime in the late afternoon the white gold diamond ring came off his finger disappearing into the sand. He and his friends searched for it several frustrating hours,  disrupting the party. 

Allen found my contact information after a google search. He was very excited when he called me, asking if I could come right away. It was just four miles from my place but it was late afternoon and with the traffic it took me about a half hour.

I met him on the sand near the patio of the beachfront home. He said he had been shaking his friend’s hand when the ring flew off his finger into the sand. There were beach chairs and longes on the sand. I did a preliminary scan of the sand before moving any of the beach furniture. “Boom” .. the beautiful gold diamond ring in my scoop.

Allen and everyone at the party was excited and relieved that the ring had been recovered. Allen wanted to show me the gold diamond watch that was part of a matching set that was custom made for him. We took a few minutes to do a photo-op. where he want me to take a pic of both the watch and ring. It was a very special search and I was happy to be available to help Allen.

*** Jordan is a student at University of California Irvine, Irvine, CA. He had been on a early morning run on campus when he heard a small ping of a key hitting the cement walkway. He immediately knew it had to be his mail box key which was on his ID tag that is attached by a lanyard.

He was sure it had hit he concrete sidewalk bouncing into the grass. Updated me with the details. It was a short drive for me, less than four miles from my location. He could meet me there in fifteen minutes. Perfect, I was on my way and it sounded like an easy search. 

We met soon after the call. Jordan walked me to a large lawn area pointing across the grass. My heart sank, now the story seemed to change. It has happened more than once. Then he told me the sidewalk was the other side of the large grassy field. 

After walking over the field the spot narrowed down to 5 feet. I got two targets right away, the second one was the brass or bronze key.. Awesome!, I thought I was into two or three hour search. Jordan thought he might have to pay for the loss of the key plus the cost of a new key. Two happy people off to enjoy the rest of a beautiful day.

I was metal defecting at Corona del Mar State Beach in the city of Newport Beach, CA. When I spotted an area that looked like someone had been searching for a lost item. No body was near, so out of curiosity I ran my detector over the zone. Boom!  I dug up a brand new key fob for a Audi Suv car.

I usually turn car keys into the lifguards as that is the first place people go to see if their keys had been found. It was late, the lifeguard office was closed. I detected in the area for another hour hoping the people would return. Now it was dark so, I decided I would drive up to the street above the beach hoping to see a mobile lock service, AAA helping a keyless car owner.

Just for fun I pushed on the key fob buttons and Bingo, I found the Audi Suv.. I waited about a half hour then decided to leave two notes, with my contact information. ( one inside and one in the windshield )

The next morning I received a call from the owner. He was very grateful. He had a share set of keys but they were 450 miles away in San Francisco, CA.. The dealership told him it would be 3 or 4 weeks before they could get him another set of keys. 

Every thing worked out the way it was suppose to be. What is next?

Lost Ring at Will Rodgers Beach, Pacific Palisades, CA., found at low tide

*** Chris called me asking for help finding a very special ring that his friend Chris had lost somewhere at Will Rodgers State Beach located in the city of Pacific Palisades, CA. He was calling for his friend, Chris who was very upset about losing this ring.

Chris had the Ring on when he arrived at the beach then noticed it missing after two hours . He had been all over the beach playing football and racing through the surf at low tide. When I arrived the tide was rising. I grid searched the incoming tide as well as the waves would let me. After clearing the wet sand it took me another two hours to eliminate the dry sand, no ring to be found..

It had to be further out in the surf which was now too deep to detect. I returned the next day to thoroughly search the wet low tide area. Boom!! Michael’s ring was there in my scoop. This search could have been a one trip search if Michael felt the ring come off his finger while he was in the water. That’s not always the case, so we have to eliminate each area separately. With the timing controlled by mother nature ( considering the tides )

The important thing is Michael was able to pick up his ring and it was nice to see how happy he was to have it back after feeling so bad about losing it.

*** Vanessa and her family were in Huntington Beach, CA. visiting relatives. While playing in the ocean withe her kids, her white gold diamond engagement ring  was lost in the surf. She and her husband had been together for 20 years and the had just given her the ring a couple weeks before.

Venessa’s cousin, Chantel found my phone number while searching the internet. Chantel gave me detatailed information on the time of day the ring was lost. It was 20 ft. north of lifeguard tower 17. Because it was lost at high tide, I felt we had a chance to find ring at a 2am low tide.

Arriving  at Huntington Beach a half hour before low tide and after about an hour of grid searching, my detector gave me the great signal that turned out to be Venessa ’s ring. I waited till 8am to call them with the good news followed by a photo of the ring. 

Venessa and her husband were returning their home in Arizona today, so they were able to stop by to pick up the ring. A very happy couple and it was my pleasure to be available to help them.

Lost Two Hierloom Wedding Rings at a Malibu, CA. Beach Parking Area.. Found Using a Metal Detector

*** Kallie called asking if I was available to help find two heirloom wedding rings lost at a beach in Malibu, CA.  She and her friend, Thuy had been at the beach earlier in the day. Thuy put her weddings rings in the pocket of her pants, then put the pants in a beach bag.

After returning home the rings we’re not in the pants pocket. She was devastated because the rings had been past down from her husbands great grandmother, irreplaceable. Her friend Kallie called asking if I could meet them tomorrow morning. I told her I would rather meet them at 8pm this evening. Timing is important especially at the beach.

It was dark when we met but that’s usually not a problem. I always have several different lights.

They showed me an area near a lifeguard tower. I began a grid search while they took one of my high powered search lights to check the parking lot. A few minutes later Kallie called me, asking if I could check the spot where they had parked in the dirt. Possibly the rings may have fallen into dirt when she put her pants into the car. 

I pulled off my grid search in the dry sand, walked a half block to where they were waiting. It only took a few minutes to find both rings. Initially they didn’t remember doing anything at the car before leaving for home. It all worked out fine. If we waited till the next morning cars would have been all over the free parking on the shoulder of Pacific Coast Highway.

Very happy ladies and the recovery worked out well.
