I woke up this morning to an email from Lorena that had been sent in the early morning regarding her friend Diana’s lost iPhone. I emailed her back and asked her to call so we could discuss the loss. When she called I found out they had been out at the beach with friends late last night when one of them picked Diana up and began to spin around. Her phone was in her pocket, and the physical forces of the fast spin caused her phone to slide out and be launched into the sea of sand they were standing in. The phone probably flew like a Frisbee and knife edged itself into the sand because it was gone in an instant. They searched and searched in the darkness, but were unable to find it. I was worried it was in the area of the towel line and that the beach sifters might have gotten it in the early morning, but she let me know it was further back towards the parking lot which gave me hope for a successful recovery.

When I got to the beach and located the young ladies, they were definitely close to the parking lot, and there had been no beach cleaning there. We discussed what had happened, and she laid out the parameters of the search for me. I searched the area finding a lot of iron, bottle caps, and pull tabs, but no phone. As I was finishing up the area Diana came out to let me know they had been a little more towards the water as well, so I let her know I would continue my grid in that direction. I made about 4 more passes finding numerous metal targets, but not the phone. As I began the 5th pass I received a real good solid signal. I gingerly put the scoop in far behind the signal so as not to damage the phone if this was it, and lifted it out. There it was poking out from the dumped sand pile. I looked up and saw Diana and Lorena talking, they had not noticed that I found the phone, so I picked it up and put it in my finds bag and walked over to them. I asked Diana if I should expand the search out further, and when she turned to her friend I pulled the phone out and asked if it looked familiar, she then jumped to her feet in total surprise and joy. Phones can be a person’s lifeline these days, and to loose one can be traumatic experience. To be able to give Diana her phone back was a special experience today; smiles all around!

My wife woke me early this morning; my phone was ringing. I did not get to it in time to answer, but waited to see if the person calling would leave a message, he did. It was Matt, who had lost his ring at the beach the night before. I called him back immediately and we talked a bit, and from what he explained to me I thought his ring may be gone for good. The beach is one of the cleanest beaches in Southern California because the County cleans it daily with sifting machines that pick up virtually everything. I let him know that if he would meet me there in 30 minutes, that I would leave right away in order to try and beat the machines.

When I got there, I could see Matt out in the sand doing what I have termed, “the lost ring shuffle”, where someone is trying to find their ring by dragging their feet through the sand in grid lines. When I got out to him, I could see where the sifter had taken a swing very close to his grid lines, and also out on the towel line closer to the slope. He explained to me that he believed the sifter had gone outside the possible loss area. I set up to grid, turned my machine on, took one swing, got a good signal, put the scoop in and dumped the sand, and there peeking out was the ring. I reached down, grabbed it, and held it out to Matt, who was in total disbelief. He had told me that the night before he gave the ring to his wife to hold while he went to the water with their child. While he was gone his wife was dealing with their beach equipment when the ring fell off her finger, and was gone in the sand. She had a hard night, feeling guilty for the loss, but today all joy is restored. What a great morning. I then went home and had my breakfast and coffee.

Jose called last night about 7:00 PM asking if I was the guy who finds rings, and I told him I was definitely one of the guys who help people find their lost rings. He told me his wife had lost her wedding and engagement rings (they were soldered together) at the beach earlier that day. After we talked for while and I asked a lot of questions, I let him know I was on my way, and would let him know when I arrived.

When I got to the beach it was already dark, and they were waiting in the parking lot. I met his wife Esmeralda and we talked about the loss as we walked out to the area they believed the loss to have occurred. I found out that she had these rings for 17 years. Esmeralda remembered taking her rings off to put on sunscreen and putting the rings in her shorts pocket. Later as they were getting ready to leave, she shook her pants out, and ring was gone into the soft sand. They told me they had searched the sand for over 3 hours before they called me, so by the time I arrived it had been at least 4 to 5 hours since they knew the ring was lost. When we got back to the area the darkness made it difficult to identify the exact spot they were, and they gave me an estimated area to search, so I began. I kept working my way out pulling up bottle cap after bottle cap. Finally After they thought I was going out of the area they thought the rings might have been lost, I showed them the bottle caps. I had at least 60 by that time, and I knew that for every dig I make their anticipation rate goes up, and then down until people begin to get discouraged. When we discussed the possibilities, Jose and Esmeralda were basically ready to throw in the towel, but I said “look, none of us has to go to work tomorrow, so I will continue”. Even at that they went back over by the parking lot as I continued my search. I searched down the slope, and then began my search in the opposite direction from my beginning search, when after about 5 passes and over 100 bottle caps later, one broken bottle, and a total search time of about 2 hours, one more good signal, and I had a beautiful set of diamond rings in my scoop. I threw away all the trash, and headed back to the parking lot with the rings on my little finger. As I got closer Jose and Esmeralda saw me coming and rose to meet me. I was looking down at the sand when I explained how I searched each area without any luck, but when I touched on the last area, I said, “AND THEN I FOUND THIS” as I opened my hand to show the rings. Esmeralda immediately went to tears and gave me a big hug, while Jose paced back and forth in total disbelief. I know that after all that time of their searching, and then watching me pull up bottle cap after bottle cap, they thought it would not be possible to find the rings, but WE ARE THE RING FINDERS, and if it is there we can find it. What an awesome couple, what an awesome night!

Esmeralda sent the following testimonial:

Steve is an absolute God send! He is professional, kind, courteous and relentless! My husband and I were at Santa Monica Beach where I took off my wedding bands and placed them in my shorts pocket. About three or so hours later I realized that I did not have my rings on and that I had left them in my pocket. When I went to go look in the pocket, which I had hung on our beach chair, I found out with great disbelief, and immediate alarm that my rings were missing. I immediately started to cry and panic, while my husband and I dug through the sand all around us. Hours later we decided to ask the lifeguard if anyone turned any rings in to him but to our dismay, he said no. He did say however, that he had some cards for people who found lost jewelry. I called the person on the first card that was handed to me but the phone just rang and rang. I called again and still got no answer. My husband called the person, Steve Smith, using the information on the second card and he received a quick and friendly answer. We were concerned that it was close to 8:00 pm, which is when the beach parking lot closed, but Steve stayed calm and told my husband that he would find other parking and for us not to worry about that. That in itself let me know how great a person Steve was without even meeting him. We were assured that he would come out as soon as possible -and he did. My husband and I told ourselves that we had a lot of faith and hope that the person that God sent to us would find our rings, but we’re also realistic. The fact of the matter was that it was past 8 PM at night and dark, plus we were sitting on a huge beach- sure we gave Steve an approximation as to where we were sitting, but with so many beach visitors moving around in the sand all day long, what were the chances of the rings been recovered? Our hearts aches knowing that there was a chance that we would never recover the wedding bands that my husband placed on my finger at our wedding a little over 17 years ago. We went through so many emotions that night, including a lot of praying as well as a lot of crying. When we wanted to give up, Steve was the first to say that he had all night and that we would get them back. This gave me and my husband great hope once again. About 2 1/2 hours after calling Steve out, he came walking back towards us and let us know about the specific effort he made to find our rings. Steve let us know that he found a lot of bottle caps and other items that were not our rings. As he talked about the process, I felt a sense of dread and great loss but at the same time I felt thankful that Steve spent so much time and energy really trying to help us. Just then, Steve pulled out my wedding rings from his fanny pack. He kept talking but I couldn’t hear anything else out of his mouth, I just saw my cherished rings and immediately started sobbing and with much gratitude, I gave Steve the biggest hug. He was truly our Angel that night. My husband and I are very thankful beyond words for all the effort that Steve put in to find something that is invaluable to us. If you or a loved one has lost a ring or another item that a metal detector can locate, Steve is your man!

Friday afternoon I received a call from Madison. She had lost her ring at the beach earlier, and after a relentless effort to find it by her and her family, she got on the internet and found The Ring Finders where she got my name and number. She asked if would be able to help, and I let her know that I was on my way and would be there as soon as I could get there.

When I got to the beach and walked out, Madison met me and walked me over to the suspected area of the loss. I could see an area about 8 foot in diameter that had been scooped out and surrounded by a berm about 8 inches high; this where they had searched for the ring. She explained that her mother had given the ring to her 3 years earlier, and that it meant a whole lot to her. Her father told me that she had been tearfully distraught since she knew the ring was missing. They explained that Madison had taken it off and put it into a hat so as not to lose it, but not remembering, later in the day shook out the hat, and the ring was gone. They were on vacation from London, UK, and Madison thought it was lost forever. I got right to work, and after 3 passes in the grid, I received a solid signal in the berm on the edge of the scooped out area. I scooped out at least 3 times, where they had unknowingly buried it much deeper than it had already sunk into the sand. I finally had the ring in the scoop, pulled it out to show Madison who was overcome with joy, I mean LOOK AT THAT SMILE! It was so awesome to bring her joy back!

I woke up this morning with an email from Justin who had lost his smart phone at the beach the day before, and was wondering what he could do to try to locate it. I immediately called his number which went to voice mail, then replied to his email asking him to call, so we could discuss the loss. When he called he told me he thought about renting a metal detector which I discouraged, because rental agencies usually rent out the cheapest detectors, and that would just cause a lot of frustration for someone unfamiliar with a detector. Knowing the beach and that the County is usually real good about grooming the beaches with sifting machines, I told him I would meet him at the spot as soon as I could get there to help him in the search.

When I got to the beach, I could see Justin out in the sand dragging his feet in a grid like manor. I walked out and we met. I began asking what had happened, and he told me that what he usually does is put his phone in the sand under his towel so no one would find it and take it while he went in the water. The problem this time was that when he was about to leave, he grabbed his towel and left for the car forgetting he had placed his phone in the sand. He ended up coming back to the beach and searching in the sand about 10:00 PM, but was unable to locate landmarks in the darkness and identify the spot he had been in earlier. I began my grid working my way from the outer most spot towards the other end of his parameters. I found a number of tent stakes and bottle caps, but no phone. I then passed the half way point in the search when I received a good signal, I carefully inserted my scoop behind the signal so as to not damage the phone. When I pulled out the scoop, there was the phone, but I noticed the screen was damaged, and thought I might have missed somehow. When I picked it up to show Justin, I asked if the damage had already been there, and he reassuringly told me it had been. He then went on to explain that this phone had traveled the world with him as he backpacked in many different countries and was full of the pictures of those experiences. Now how do you replace that? Made his day, and that’s what it is all about!

Justin sent the following testimonial:

“I forgot to dig my phone out of the sand underneath my towel after I was done body boarding one late afternoon. I’ve been hiding my phone underneath my towel ever since I started body boarding and such but I guess I got unlucky and forgot to dig it out this time. I walked to my car and realized that I didn’t have my phone and then rushed back to the area where I set my stuff. Having forgotten where I set my towel exactly, I probably spent a good hour or so combing the sands with my feet. I couldn’t find my phone although I recalled hiding it probably 2 inches under the surface of the sand. I went back later that night to try and find my device using Google’s find my android system. Still didn’t find it. I found Steve online and emailed him that same night and got an email back early the following morning. I called Steve and explained my situation and he offered to drive an hour down to the beach to help me out. The phone was still there according to Find My Device. I drove down to the spot and marked an estimate boundary in which I was certain the phone would be within. Steve greeted me and went to work right away. Using a grid system in the boundary I laid out, he found my phone after finding a lot of metal pins and bottle caps. It probably took around 30- 45ish minutes. It turns out I was combing the right area the night and afternoon the day before but I set my stuff a lot closer to the shore. Steve advised that I dry out my phone first since it looked like the waters came in over it, but fortunately the phone is water proof.

I’m really glad I contacted Steve in time as I had planned to find metal- detecting equipment myself and search for my phone. Steve explained why that was a bad idea when I called him that morning and you could observe for yourself why it was so just by watching Steve work. I also want to mention that Steve didn’t hesitate to offer his help on an early Thursday morning, just shortly before a doctor’s appointment! I had a lot of cool pictures and memories stored on that phone from my travels as well as important notes and documents for school and work. Not everything was backed up into the cloud so I was pretty upset at the thought that I would lose the fun memories I captured with my phone. Thanks a million, Steve!!!”

Electronic Mercedes Car Key Lost in the Sand at Newport Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

A couple of days ago I received a call from Terisa about the loss of her Mercedes electronic car key. She had gone to the beach to relax, and laid out her blanket on the slope to the water to enjoy the sun and pleasantness of the ocean. She tucked her key in her waist band and laid down. When she awoke from a sleep she enjoyed her key was gone. It must have come out while sleeping and moving around. She searched, and others in the area helped, but were unable to find the key. I let her know that I would be there as soon as possible.

When I got to the area Terisa was unable to meet me there, so I was going to with the information she gave me to figure out where to start my search. As I was searching a gentleman came over to inform me that a lady had lot her car key earlier and was wondering if I could help. I let him know that was why I was there, and he proceeded to show me where the actual search area was. He was one of those who helped Terisa earlier in the day. I could see the drag marks in the sand where they had dragged their feet and hands in the sand hoping to feel the key. The sand moves so much when you search in that manner, it usually moves the object out of the way. I began my search, and during the second pass got a real strong signal, dipped the scoop in and out came Terisa’s key. She wasn’t able to meet for the return until the next day, so I got down there, let her know that I had arrived, and did a little metal detecting while I waited (always good to keep practiced up). When She arrived she was very happy to have the key back, and I was very happy to have made her day!

I received a call from Henry this morning about a pendant he lost yesterday at the beach. He had purchased this custom artwork pendant while on a trip to Italy, so it had significant meaning to him. The pendant had been on a chain around his neck while he was playing beach tennis. During the game, which is high energy and fast paced, the pendant came off of the chain and went into the fine sand. It wasn’t long before he noticed it gone, but did not know when it came off. He did some searching in the sand, but soon realized the futility of searching so much area with only his hands. He found me on the web, called and I agreed to meet him as soon as I could.

When I got to the beach Henry met me and we walked down to the sand and the court where he had been playing. We talked about what happened, and I asked a multitude of questions reassuring him that if it was still here, I would find it. I also explained that I would be searching outside of the area just in case it had been knocked out of the area of play somehow. I searched where he originally thought it may have been lost, it wasn’t there. I then went to the next possible spot, it wasn’t there either. I then said that I would search the whole court, both sides to ensure we covered all possibilities. I was searching in the first side and made about 3 passes when I got a good signal. I put the scoop in and pulled out a very unique looking item. I held it up for Henry to see, he came over and identified it as his jewelry. He was very happy to know he had it back, and I was happy to have made his day.

Ryan called yesterday. He was at the beach with his friends, and playing beach games. When playing beach racquet ball, he swung at the ball, and felt his ring fly off of his finger. The good thing is that they had not moved form the area, and knew and approximate area of where the ring had come off. I let him know that I would come right away because time is always the enemy in a loss at a public beach or park area.

When I got to the beach I found that parking was crazy, so not to waste time I found a parking spot about 1 1/2 miles away, but on occasions such as busy weekends I bring a Segway MiniPro. I grabbed all my equipment, hopped on the Segway, and was at the spot of the loss within minutes. I walked out to the area, and Ryan showed me what had happened. I explained what I would be doing to conduct my search, and that I would show him everything I found. I began and found a bottle cap, a penny, another bottle cap, another bottle cap, another penny, then boom, a real good signal. I put the scoop in and pulled out a real nice heavy ring. I held it up, and Ryan was very excited. This ring had been custom made for him by his fiancé, and given in preparation for their upcoming marriage. He gave me a big hug, and everyone celebrated the recovery; what a great day!

Kellen called, he had lost his wedding ring in the harbor where he, family, and friends had rented a house for their vacation. Across the street from where they were staying was a little beach with a swim platform about 70 feet out in the water. While he was walking to the swim platform, he was fingering his ring trying to make sure it did not fall off, but it was a little loose to start with and it slipped off of his finger to his surprise. He immediately tried to catch it but it was already gone in the chest deep water. This was the ring his wife had given him 10 years ago when they were married, and he didn’t want to lose it. He dove and dove about 30 times trying to find it but the bottom was covered in muck and some type of small mussel which made it very difficult to identify the ring in the murky water. He found me online and asked for help in finding the ring. I checked the tide chart, and saw the tide was rising, so we made arrangements for me to come back in the evening at the next low tide.

When I arrived Kellen was waiting. I donned my wetsuit, and he and I discussed how the ring was lost, where he thought it might be in relation to the swim platform, and at what angle he had entered the water. With that information I walked out to the area and began the search. I got a real good signal and tried to scoop, but had a hard time retrieving the object. The mussels on the bottom were tied together with what seemed to be a spiderweb like algae which made it difficult to get the scoop in and out. I kept working on that signal until I ended up with an aluminum bottle. I continued the search, next finding an old crusted folding knife. I worked a grid shallower and shallower until in about waist deep water I received a nice smooth tone in the headphones. I dug, and in one scoop I had the object, so I knew it was shallow. I shook the scoop out but the mussels and algae had to be removed by hand to search for the metal item. It was almost dark, but when I removed the last bit of mussels, I could see the ring in the bottom of the scoop. I reached in, and slipped it on my finger so as not to lose it, then looked to the shore where Kellen was sitting, and raised my detector and scoop to let him know we had success. When I got to shore I handed the ring to Kellen who identified it as his. His wife had been out riding bikes with friends, and she pulled up as Kellen and I were talking at the curb. She was very happy to see the ring again as well. Really a great feeling to be able to be a help to others, doing what you enjoy!

I got a call this afternoon from a pretty distraught young lady. Taylor explained how she was at the beach with friends, took her engagement ring off and inserted it into her bathing suit top. She then moved around their position where the towels were, and then went down to the water. When she got back to lay down she realized the ring was gone, and began to freak out. I said to secure the area where they were laying in order to not let anyone lay their towels over the possible area of the loss, and told her I would be on my way in order to make sure I was the first detector to hit the area.

When I got there Taylor met me and took me to the dry sand area where she thought the ring might have fallen out of her bathing suit at first. I worked a tight slow grid, and came up with only 3 quarters and a few bottle caps, no ring. She showed me the path she took to the water, and I searched that whole area as well, no ring. I then took off my shoes, and prepared to search the wet sand into the water. There was another detectorist in the wet sand, and I was a bit worried he had already scanned the area I was going to search. Taylor’s fiancé James then told me that when the loss occurred it had been high tide, so I started my search from the high tide line and down. I made about 5 passes in my grid when I got a nice foil sound about 4 inches down. I scooped the sand, and when I dumped it, the round bottom side of Taylor’s ring was showing. Her fiancé saw it at the same time as I did. I brought it up with my scoop, retrieved the ring, a beautiful diamond halo ring with a pear shaped center stone, and handed it to James who then took it to Taylor and placed it back on her finger. Needless to say her joy was fully restored, and there were smiles all around. A great time was had by all!
