Steve called, he had lost his wedding ring the previous day at a heavily machine cleaned beach. It had been in the pocket of his pop up tent, and he forgot it when he wrapped everything up to head home. We talked, and it sounded like it may have been lost On the towel line, which reduces the possibility of a recovery. I let him know I would come and do the search for him because in the Winter, the County doesn’t always clean the beaches daily like they do in the Summer.

When I got there, I waited for Steve, and when he arrived, he took me over to where the possible loss occurred. The one thing that was instantly noticeable, was that the machines had not gone through that day which buoyed my hopes of a recovery. I began my grid working the outer edge of the area he showed me, working my way towards the other side, pass by pass. After about 5 passes, and 3 or 4 bottle caps, I got that signal I was waiting for, dug, and was rewarded with a nice chunky ring in the scoop. I held it up for Steve, and he immediately rejoiced. He had been married for 8 years, and this was the ring. What a happy day!

Steve sent the following testimonial:

Steve,

I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you again for the amazing find this afternoon.

I was fairly certain that all hope was lost and I was preparing for the worst, yet within minutes of meeting you, you had found my wedding ring! Simply amazing! Your willingness to take the time out of your day to drive down to the beach to help a total stranger is a true act of kindness. I am truly grateful.

I appreciate your time and efforts and hope to see you again sometime down on the water.

Best,
Steve

I was traveling on the freeway when I received a call from Dave, he had just lost his wedding ring in the beach sand, and was unable to find it. He was asking for help, and I was ready to offer my services. I had my equipment with me, and was traveling in the direction of his loss. I asked him to wait so he could show me where the ring was lost, but he had to leave to get his child, so I asked him to text me pictures to show me where to look, and I would do the search, even though he wasn’t there, so I headed to the beach.

When I got there, I pulled out my phone and studied the pictures. I also looked around, and saw a couple of areas that looked right, so I studied the pictures again. He also sent a video which proved to be the most helpful. I was able to line up from the video, and began my search. I found his ring within minutes, and sent him a text with a picture of it, to which he replied with excitement and joy. We arranged to meet the next day, and it was a pleasure to give Dave back something he thought was gone for good.

I received a call from Adam who had lost his ring in the sand at the beach. This ring was custom made for him to receive when he got married. The jade was a special stone picked out by his future mother in law for that occasion, so the ring had a very special significance for him. I let him know that I could be there soon so as to get to the area before anyone else could, and to insure a thorough search of the area.

When I arrived Adam met me , and showed me the area. One of his friends was busy with a kitchen colander sifting through the sand when we got there. Adam said he wore himself out doing the same. The area wasn’t large that they had been searching, but that doesn’t always mean much. The ring could have been flipped into another area altogether. I began my search over where Adam and his friend had been looking, beginning from the edge working my way in. I found a few pieces of trash metal, and then right in the middle of their search area I got that good gold signal, dug, and had this cool looking ring in my scoop. Adam had not described the ring before I began, so I saw a ring I wasn’t expecting, and before he knew I found it, I said it must be a real cool looking ring. He replied it was with a questioning look, and then I held it up for him, which totally surprised him when he realized I found it right in the middle of where they had previously searched. He was very happy, and I was pleased to be able to return such a special ring for him.

Mobile Metal Detecting Service .. Call Stan the Metal Detector Man .. 949-500-213

Bella had been at Santa Monica Beach with her friends. She went into the water not realizing that she was still wearing her Cartier watch. It was actually an hierloom that her mother had passed down to Bella. 

She was out about waist deep water with small waves when she felt the watch slip off her wrist. The tide was beginning to come up. On the Southern California beaches we get high tides that range between 4.5ft to 6.5ft. high. The tides raise approximately one foot an hour. 

When I received the call I knew the water level could be too high to do a proper search. My priority was to get to the location before Bella left the beach. This may take two trips to do a proper search. I only discuss the general idea if the loss occurred in the dry sand or water and if they can stay at the location till I arrive. For beach losses it’s more important to get on the road and meet the people before they have to leave. 

I was at the Santa Monica beach location within an hour of Bella’s call for help. The tide was rising and I was hoping that she had been wrong about how deep she was when the watch slipped off her wrist. It’s really hard to judge how deep you are in the surf with 3 or 4ft. waves.

I went directly into the surf with my waterproof metal detector. It wasn’t necessary to go into the crashing waves as I was pretty sure I would have a better chance to find the watch the next day at a lower tide.

Within fifteen minutes I got my first good signal and BOOM!! One very sentimental gold Cartier watch was in my scoop.

Bella, her friends and all the people on the beach were excited, amazed and joyful that the watch was saved and not lost forever.

Platinum wedding band lost, recovered and returned in Berwyn, PA!

from Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, United States)
Contact: 1-484-433-6990

Dan found me via The Ring Finders directory. He was deeply worried about losing his very sentimental platinum wedding band. He said he just celebrated his 1 year wedding anniversary and the ring was so important to him. He told me the previous Saturday he was at his niece’s wedding reception in the backyard of his brother’s house in Berwyn , PA. The reception was a big affair with a DJ and a dance floor set up in the middle of the grassy backyard. He was partying and dancing up a storm when he decided to head in the house to use the bathroom….that’s when he noticed his ring was missing. He was 100% sure it was on his finger before the party started. He and family started searching immediately both at party and next day. He finally contacted me on a Tuesday and and I agreed to start to search on Wednesday. Dan lives in NJ so he put me in touch with his brother since it was his yard I would be searching. I met his brother that afternoon in the backyard of his house…it was a 50 x 5o foot grassy yard with much of the grass compressed and still littered from the big party. In the middle of grass you could clearly see the 20×20 foot square where a wood dance floor was installed and then removed.  As you become more experienced as a Ring Finder you start to get more intuitive on where the lost ring might be when starting a search. You prioritize the most likely areas…not only based off details and circumstances of how it was actually lost but also considering the fact that many people have been looking for it for many days with just their eyes(not a metal detector). Most of the grass in backyard was very short or non-existent…if the ring was there they would have found it themselves. However, there was one area off near the dance floor where the grass was higher…if it fell there it would be difficult to find without a metal detector. Soooooo…..I started there. Bingo…I immediately got a perfect ring signal. I bent down…pushed aside the high grass to reveal Dan’s ring! I immediately texted Dan’s brother who came out and was just amazed how quickly I found it after so many people searched for hours. He, in turn, immediately called Dan to share the good news! It brings me great joy to be able to come through for people with a successful recovery!

Lost Platinum Diamond/Tanzanite Ring, Found in Crozet (Charlottesville), Virginia

I received a call early this morning from Georgia in southern Virginia and she asked if I could help her. I asked her the typical few questions to get an idea of location and scope of work and found that she was approx. 2.5 hours from my location being located in Charlottesville VA. Georgia was worried that the drive was too long for me, but I put her mind at ease stating “this is what we do”, we’ll travel as far as we need to in order to recover a lost item.

Georgia had lost her ring the day before while outside on her property planting flowers, pulling weeds and doing a general clean-up of the yard. I told her I would be there in several hours and hopped into the truck. Upon arriving at her location I was so immersed in the scenic view from her propriety I almost would have forgotten why I was there, simply a gorgeous view of the Blue Ridge Mountains from her back deck. I was greeted by Georgia upon my arrival and we immediately went to the areas where she thought she may have lost the ring; in the grassy area leading towards the woods where she had been tossing yard waste and then back along the same path towards the back of the house and into a raised garden bed.

I started working in the brush pile first to see if she had maybe lost it while tossing the yard waste into the woods. After a brief search at the surface level I decided I would come back to this area and do a more in depth and expanded search…so we headed towards the back of the house and Georgia explained what she had been doing with planting the flowers and that she had even taken them back out to try to find her ring. I started by search with my Minelab Equinox 800 and immediately started to receive a pulsating rhythm in the tone (found out later there was an electric dog fence in the back-yard which what probably caused the pulsating). I determined I would still be able to hit the desired targets and started the search. I conducted a brief scan in the grass before stepping up into the raised garden bed. A few scans around the flowers and the immediate vicinity I did not locate the ring….then only several feet away and on the surface in the mulch there was Georgia’s beautiful Snowflake Platinum ring shining in the sunlight like a beacon.

Georgia was so excited that I had found her ring so quickly and couldn’t wait to put it back on her finger. I asked if possibly the ring was too large and if that’s why it fell off, but actually she stated for the yard work she had placed it on the opposite hand which her finger on that hand may be a little smaller and made it easier to come off. A lesson not soon lost 🙂

Georgia was simply charming and wonderful to talk to, I was so pleased to be able to return her ring to her today.

Another happy recovery, another happy customer and another Holiday memory saved. God Bless!

Cell Phone lost recovered and returned in Chadds Ford, PA!

from Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, United States)
Contact: 1-484-433-6990

Greg found me via The Ring Finders directory. He contacted seeking help to find a very important lost Iphone. We spoke on a Friday night and Greg shared with me that 2 weeks prior while enduring some very difficult and personal trauma he absent-mindedly left the phone on top of his car prior to pulling out of driveway of his home. He got to the end of the 400 foot driveway when he realized he left the phone on the roof of the car. Unfortunately the phone was no longer there and obviously slid off at some point during the short drive. To further complicate things the driveway was lined on both side with either leaves or pachysandra ground cover. Greg spent several hours over the last 2 weeks searching with a rake for the phone. I agreed to meet him on a Saturday afternoon. When I got to his home he was prepared with an old phone to reenact the incident… while I observed he put the phone on the roof of his car and once again pulled to end of driveway. It was clear that the phone must have slid off to the left side and most likely in the curved area of the driveway with thicker ground leaves. I booted up the detector and made a first pass parallel and closer to driveway…no luck. Halfway trough a 2nd pass quite distant from driveway in an area of thick leaves I received a screaming loud signal on my detector…to me there was no doubt what that was! I gently pushed away a a few inches of leaves to reveal his Iphone 7! I called Greg over and asked him to look down…the relief and joy on his face when seeing his lost phone made my day!

Massive platinum wedding band lost, recovered and returned in Chadds Ford, PA!

from Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, United States)
Contact: 1-484-433-6990

Jay found me via The Ring Finders Directory. He told me he was in the front yard of his beautiful Chadds Ford, PA home putting up Christmas lights when he took a break to throw a football with his son. His son threw him a deep high pass and while reaching to catch it he felt(but didn’t see!) his large platinum wedding band fly off his finger. He actually borrowed a metal detector from a neighbor and spent several hours looking for the ring himself prior to contacting me. When talking to him I told him that I have had many people contact me after renting or buying a metal detector themselves…I feel the experience of the operator of these machines is as important as the machine itself when searching for something as important and valuable as a ring. Anyway, I met Jay on a Saturday afternoon and we reenacted the incident. Jay was convinced the ring must have flung off his finger straight back and far toward the side yard. After 20-30 minutes and not finding…we reenacted the incident again and considered other angles and expanded our search. Still nothing! We decided to reenact the incident one more time but this time Jay was going to actually fling a ring sized object to see how far and what direction it might go. He just returned from his garage with the ring sized object in his hand and was preparing to fling it…I was standing next to him in an area he never thought possible his ring could be…but sure enough I got the perfect signal on my detector. I bent down with my pin pointer and sure enough…there was his massive platinum band! The funny thing was Jay had his back to me still about to fling his mock ring….when I tapped him on shoulder and told him to stop! I held up his ring and we both started laughing…he couldn’t believe where I found it. We had the angles all wrong! All’s well that ends well! Jay was very happy to get get his ring back!

 

Lost Set of Keys…FOUND in Time for Thanksgiving Day Family Gathering Starkville, Mississippi!

from Huntsville (Alabama, United States)
Contact: 1-610-504-6135

Christina McCree – Lost Item Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?…Call ASAP Anytime 24/7  610-504-6135

I received a call from a distraught Kayleigh on Thanksgiving Eve (Wednesday, November 25, 2020) for a lost set of keys.  Kayleigh explained that she was in the stressful process of moving and lost her only set of car and house keys on Tuesday afternoon.  Kayleigh was supposed to leave on Wednesday morning to travel to Tennessee for a Thanksgiving Day family gathering.  Instead, she spent all day Wednesday searching for her keys.  She wasn’t sure if she put the keys somewhere in the house or dropped them in the leaves outside, but she was unable to find them.

Running out of options, Kayleigh went online to rent a metal detector and discovered The Ring Finders Metal Detecting Service.  She decided to try a Ring Finder from the directory first.  Starkville, Mississippi is almost a 3.5-hour drive (7-hour round trip) from where I’m located at in Huntsville, Alabama, but there were no other Ring Finders in her area.  Hearing her voice on the phone, I could tell I was her only hope in order for her to see her family on Thanksgiving.  I graciously agreed to drive out early on Thanksgiving morning for a search.

I left my house at 4am and arrived at Kayleigh’s house around 7:30.  She had a pot of coffee waiting on me and we enjoyed a quick cup before I got to work.  Kayleigh said she could’ve lost the keys in either the front of the house or in the backyard while cleaning up around the firepit.  She wasn’t sure which path she took to walk out there, but she felt the backyard was the most likely spot she would’ve dropped the keys.  The backyard also had a large amount of leaves that could easily hide a set of keys.  I thought this was the best place to start searching.  Due to the rebar in the concrete, I used my handheld Garrett pinpointer to clear around the leaves on the patio.  I then started scanning my Minelab Equinox 800 along the most direct path to the firepit.  The first signal I checked, I brushed a few leaves aside with my pinpointer and boom, there were Kayleigh’s keys!!!  5 minutes after starting the search and the first signal I checked, I had Kayleigh’s keys in hand!  I went back in the house to tell her the good news!

Kayleigh was so thankful and relived that she had her keys back!  She also couldn’t believe at how quickly I found them, because she spent a whole day searching!  Nonetheless, she had her keys back!  I had been praying the night before and during the drive to Mississippi for God to put me in the right spot.  I asked Him for a quick search in order for us both to be able to spend the rest of Thanksgiving with our families.  God surely delivered!  All glory to Him!

Kayleigh thanked me a few more times.  We said Happy Thanksgiving and I was back on the road home.  Kayleigh was leaving shortly after to see her family in Tennessee for the Holiday.  This was truly a Thanksgiving miracle!

Winter recovery of wedding ring

from Colorado Springs (Colorado, United States)
Contact: 1-719-237-1488

We were called out today to search for a lost wedding ring. It had been lost the night before on a snow covered lawn. The owner had searched unsuccessfully. Took about 10 minutes for us to find it. Owner thankful on this Thanksgiving eve!
