Maureen’s daughter Lauren had come down to Chino, Ca. from Sacramento to visit her mother and to move her horse from the boarding stables. After a whole day of cleaning the stall and moving the tack box Lauren realized her white gold and diamond engagement ring was missing from her finger.
They spent the weekend searching around the stall with no success. Lauren had to return to Sacramento, CA. Maureen went to a sporting goods store purchasing a metal detector. Several people helping to search for the ring attempted to use the detector unsuccessfully.
Maureen was given my information from somebody that found TheRingFinders website.
I drove 40 miles to Chino to meet Maureen at 2 pm. When I arrived we discussed what happened the day of the loss. There was a 10 ft. sq. area where they removed the tack box, then she had 3 trash bags full of loose alpha hay and the last place would be where they had hauled the horse manure. It made sense to start in the area where the tack box was as I was going to save the manure pile for last. (I’ve searched worst locations)
Turned on my XP Deus and set it up to deal with nails and other non ferrous metals. Two passes into my grid, a nice signal and a beautiful diamond engagement ring underneath an inch of dirt and hay particles. I was as surprised as Maureen. She looked at me saying they had searched that location many many times by hand, rake and a metal detector. A big smile and hugs of gratitude, then we called her daughter telling her the good news.
Another special ring recovery and a reminder to me that “I Will Try Anywhere”, that’s what helps to make miracles happen.
