This adventure started back in February of 2021.  At that time I had helped our local KIRO morning news talk show anchor locate her lost wedding. Out of this exciting recovery effort a radio interview was published showcasing the amazing services of TheRingFinders.com

KIRO News Story:

This piece aired around Valentine’s Day 2021 and grabbed the attention of many people in need of lost item recovery support. One of those that reached out to me was a mother named Janice. She told me that her daughter had been tossing snow balls in their back yard, had lost her wedding ring and they were franticly searching all over when she heard the radio interview. In our initial correspondence I instructed her family to carefully check all gloves and clothing and the surrounding area but to be reassured I was on my way to do a search. My schedule was set to come out quickly there after however before I showed up I got the good news. Janice reported that her daughter had located her wedding ring inside one of the glove’s fingers. I was happy to hear the good news, shared some smiles over the phone and in closing reminded them to keep me in mind anyone else ever needs some lost item recovery help to reach out to me.

Fast forward to May 2021, I received a phone call from Janice again. As the call came across my phone I scratched my head as her name seemed very familiar. She quickly explained her daughters past situation then proceeded to tell me her son just had a recent incident in their same back yard. She told me that he had a bit of a stressful moment and threw an item across the back yard. In doing so his large chunky wedding band launched off his finger at the same time.  They had searched all over with no success and asked if I could pay a visit to look for his ring. Of course I was happy to take the call and meet up with them soon after. 

When I arrived her son, Tim, explained he had tossed a bottle across the yard and his ring flew off. I reassured them that we all have our moments but not to worry that his ring was some place in the yard and being that this was a recent incident we had a great opportunity in finding his ring. He describe his ring as a chunky black wedding band with flat sides like a hex nut. 

After searching the yard with my medal detectors and visually searching several hiding places with a bright flashlight in hand I eventually made my way back to my starting point. This is where I located his ring no more than maybe a few feet from where he had made his initial toss. His big chunky tungsten carbide wedding band was found laying obscured by some thick grass just waiting to be discovered by my medal detector.

Tim and his family were happy to see the ring recovered and back on his finger. All was well once again with smiles and appreciation for Tim’s recovered wedding ring.

Watch my video to see first hand the recovery of Tim’s launched wedding ring as I go full circle throughout the yard to find it back where I started the search.

I was enjoying a good sound sleep when my phone rang at 5:30 AM. It was Robyn. She had lost her gold Cartier ring while taking pictures at about 10:00 PM the night before near the water at the beach. She reached down to wash some sand from her hands when in a moment, the ring that was a little loose fitting came off, and disappeared in the sand and water. Robyn had not been able to sleep well the night before, found my information on The Ring Finders site, and called immediately, just as I ask. I let her know that I had to get some nourishment, wake up a bit, and I would be on my way. She said she would meet me there. Always, the sooner the search happens the more apt you are to have a successful recovery.

I got to the beach a little before Robyn, and began searching the area she showed me by a Google Earth shot she sent to me. I did not find anything, the sand I covered was free from any type of metal. I was ready to enter the water to look when Robyn came with her husband David. We discussed the loss, and they showed me that I might have been looking in the wrong area by about 30 feet. I moved over, and began a grid working back to the original search area. Working my way up the slope I finally got a signal, and my hopes rose, as I am certain they did for Robyn, I dug, and up came a piece of aluminum which turned out to be a bit disheartening for the 3 of us. I continued working towards the original search area, when I received my second signal down in the moist wet sand. I dug, and I could see a small piece of iron come up. I picked it up and went over the hole again with the coil, and received another signal, I scooped again, dumped the sand, and kicked it across the beach when there on top was a nice gold ring. I looked at Robyn and David, and gave them a thumbs up. They immediately came over, and David picked up the ring in disbelief, both of them thinking it was lost forever. We as ring finders know that time is the enemy of a good recovery, and Robyn made the right choice by calling me immediately, not caring what time it was. I was so happy to get this ring back to them. Their smiles tell it all!

*** Lianne called me asking for help finding her ring that she had lost last night at Santa Monica Beach, CA. Like most of my calls, she wanted to know how my service works. Every search is different, so I need a few minutes on the phone to discuss basic information. There are situations where the person can not meet me at the location. With good information I can do a search without the person meeting me at the location. I have a basic fee to help with my travel expenses. We are usually able to take care of that by electronic money transfers after I do the search.

Lianne could not leave work but she gave me very good idea of how the ring was lost and she was within 30 feet from the north side of a lifeguard tower. She did feel the ring come off her finger. (a bonus clue, many times people don’t have an idea when the loss occurred ). I agreed to drive to the location at Santa Monica Beach.. She said, if I had anymore questions she could take phone calls anytime. We were also able to do FaceTime calls on our iPhones. That did  help because when I arrived at the parking lot there was a little confusion about the lifeguard tower number. We straightened out that problem using a FaceTime phone call.

After clarifying the lifeguard tower number I was able to recovery Lianne’s ring after after a short grid search. Lifeguard towers in Southern California are usually not moved except in the winter.. I understand that on the east coast of our country they move lifeguard towers where they have flat beaches with lone tide movement. 

After notifying Lianne, I called her , offering to deliver her ring if she was available. It worked out fine because her work place was just a few blocks my drive home. Actually we met at lunch time. She was very surprised that we had accomplished the search, recovery and return using our cellphones and the mapping apps. The RingFinders directory service works because of the internet and all the new technology we have today. I love what I do !

Eugene contacted me about his ring he had lost the day before in the sand at the beach. He got hold of me early in the morning, so I was thinking there was a chance the machines had not gone over the whole beach. He was not going to be able to meet me there, so he sent me a good group of photos showing where he and his family had been; everything helps. I let him know I would head out as soon as I had something to eat.

When I arrived at the beach, and looked out over the sand, my heart sank. I could see that the tractors had already gone through, and the machines had cleaned the beach. I took some pictures of the carnage, and sent them to Eugene explaining how it was unlikely that the ring would still be there, but that because I had made the drive, I would still make the search. I used his photos and maps to coordinate my position for the search, and then began what I really thought would be a futile exercise. I made two passes, got a good signal, dug, and to my surprise, there was a nice shiny ring in my scoop. I immediately took a picture, and sent it to Eugene asking if he was Irish, because he had an Irishman’s luck this day. We had to wait a week before I could get it back to him, and when I did, it was a pleasure, as we had a great time in fellowship.

I was on the freeway when I received a call from Ian. Ian was at the beach when his ring was lost in the sand. This was a ring that he purchased while on a great trip with a bunch of his friends, and reminded him of the great memories, so it meant a lot to him. He had thrown a football to his brother when his ring came off, and disappeared. They searched the area for about an hour with no luck, and I was already on my way.

I got to the beach, and found them quickly. we went over what happened. the area wasn’t large, and I could see where they had been searching. He showed me where he had been standing when he threw the ball, and had placed his flip flops there as a marker. They had searched out from there, but I began at the flip flops. I received an immediate signal, dug and had Ian’s ring in the scoop. Apparently when he threw the ball, the motion of his hand put the ring at his feet, the last place he thought it would be. Glad to have made his day!

Got a call from Denis after he lost his cell phone while playing soccer with his family on the beach. they were running around, when his phone came out of his pocket, and disappeared in the sand. I left as soon as we got off of the phone, in order to do a search as soon as possible.

When I got there they were easy to find, and we went over the loss, and the possible areas to look in. I began in the most likely area. I made a few passes with no luck. His sister pointed out another area, and some people that were there were kind enough to move their belonging to enable me to search that area as well. A few more passes, and then strong signal. I carefully scooped, and brought up the phone. When I showed them the phone they were very excited to have it back, and I was glad to have made Denis’ day.

Michael and Clair contacted me after losing Clair’s necklace in the beach sand. She had taken it off, and put it in her chair for safe keeping, but forgot it was there when they were ready to leave. They picked up their belongings leaving, and realized, too late that the necklace was now lost in the sand. I let then let them know I would come right away, because time is the enemy of a successful recovery.

When I got to the beach I found them, and fortunately they had kept the place of the loss. We discussed the how behind the loss, and I began my search. It took 2 passes, and a couple of pieces of trash metal, and then a good signal. I scooped the sand, and looked inside, but did not see anything. It was getting dark, so seeing was a bit difficult. I put my coil over the hole again to see if I missed the item, and got no signal. I flipped my scoop over to put it on my belt when I noticed the jeweled piece dangling from the bottom of the scoop. I grabbed it and carefully removed the rest of the chain from the scoop, handing it to Clair. They were so happy to see it again. Turns out it was the first gift to Clair from Michael, so the sentimental significance was quite strong. Another happy day!

Seattle Ring Hunter Recovers Cell Phone from Hicks Lake Lacey WA

  • from Mercer Island (Washington, United States)

      

SeattleRingHunter Lost Item Recovery Specialist LAND & SCUBA Call ASAP 206-618-8194

Watch this video of Shannon’s dropped cell phone recovered from Hicks Lake in Lacey, WA.

Like share and subscribe… 

Shannon called me sharing that she had just dropped her cell phone in to Hicks Lake. She was with her friend Karen enjoying a day of paddle boarding when this incident took place. Shannon fell off her paddle board into the lake. Karen’s dog then jumped from one paddle board to the the other to help Shannon. Karen then also fell of her board and her dog then jumped back to Karen’s board. In all the commotion Shannon’s iPhone 11 fell off her board into the lake and down it went! 

Shannon told me a few key points of information during our pone interview. Her iPhone 11 was not backed up so it was important to recover it. The phone was inside one of those clear PVC plastic phone bags with a clip on the top and a neck lanyard. She could not see the bottom of the lake where the phone dropped however they were relatively close to shore. Fortunately the drop zone took place next to a residential buoys so there was a solid land mark to work from. She told me there was about three white jug buoys. However the one they were closest to had a big handle and no label or printing any longer on the container.

After hearing all this I asked a slew of inquisitive questions to aid in the efficiency of my search. I said if the buoy is the center of the clock and shore is at 6 o’clock what bearing would you say the drop zone is from the buoy.  She thought about it and told me 11 o’clock seemed to be most accurate.

Due Shannon’s work schedules she sent her friend Karen to meet me on site who also witnessed this whole event take place. I asked the same clock bearing question to her without any prompting and after a bit of though she also confidently stated 11 o’clock. This was reassuring to me as viable intel to work.

Having my dive scooter greatly improve my efficiencies on this dive to motor over to the buoys to start my dive search. When I arrived at the first buoy I could not see any of the others from my low position in the water. I noticed a white jug with a handle and no printing on the side so I felt confident I was at the “drop zone” and proceeded with my first dive. I worked the area with a max operating depth of 15’.  After a bit of time using visual inspection, medal detection and a bit of scooter searching I was perplexed after 40 minutes of work. I surfaced to clear my mind for a quick reset when it occurred to me I had possibly been searching the wrong buoy. I then inspected the buoy I just dove and the back side of the container still had a label on it. At this point I also remembered her telling me her buoy was fairly close to shore.

I scootered a short distance and could just make out the second white jug buoy. When I got up to the container and fully inspected it more carefully this time I confirmed this one was correct as it was completely free of all writing and labels. This buoy as also much closer to the shore as described during our phone interview. The placement of these buoys were not visible from my shore entry point and guarded by private property. Because of this I was not able to have anyone directly point the buoy out to me from shore. At this point my confidence level was boosted as I ascended down on my second dive effort to search for her phone.

This time on my second dive with a MOD of 13’ I was efficiently rewarded with the phone recovery via a simple visual search. It paid to ask what orientation from the buoy they remembered. Based on this I was able to make a simple swim out towards the 11 o’clock bearing and quickly located her lost phone at 11 feet concluding this dive within 5 minutes. 

Remember the value of any recovery effort is not in how long a search takes if only a few minutes or a few revisits to the site. The value is in finding a recovery specialist that can provide a portfolio of proven skills for the requirement of your search needs. The time spent interviewing properly, travel, gear setup and tear down, arriving with the proper gear for the job and having a proper experience mindset for a detail relentless search effort is what you are lookin for in a recovery specialist. Fortunately you have options and no better place to review your opportunities than TheRingFinders.com. This amazing directly listing allows experienced recovery specialist across the country to showcase their unique skill sets and how they can be of service to you.

When I located her phone on the lake floor it was still sealed inside the dry bag and still look dry. There was no way at the surface of the water at my dive float was I willing to even sneak a peak at the phone so I left the bag sealed up until I reached the shore.

The good news was after five days as a shallow eleven feet the new phone bag she had just purchased did its job in keeping her phone dry!

Lessons Learned… 

Continue to ask a lot of detailed investigative questions and take good notes, they often pay great dividends in the outcome of any search. What I will try to do moving forward especially when the search is a day or more past the initial interview is to reread carefully through my notes before the search effort so the details are fresh in my mind.  Another take way for all of us when things are not adding up, stop beating up the same areas already searched. Take a moment to pause and reconsider the information provided and new information gained by what search efforts you have made to this point. Fortunately my assessment that I had been diving the wrong zone came to me and I was able to adjust my search effort for the successful recovery of the lost phone. I also had a great appreciation for having the appropriate gear for the job. Even though they said it was a short swim to the buoy it would have been much more taxing on my energy level if I had to free swim the whole operation towing my dive float and search gear along. With the aid of my dive scooter I was able to conserve my energy to maintain a safe dive profile and effectively operate with many details on my mind throughout the whole operation. 

 

Watch my video to see first hand the recovery of this dropped phone in the lake even after a slight misdirection on my part we still found success before the end of the day.

Unbelievable Gold Earring Recovery near a Firepit at Huntington State Beach, CA.

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you lost your ring in the sand call  “Stan the Metal Detector Man” available now … Call or Text  .. 949-500-2136

*** Jeremy and his wife had been at Huntington State Beach sitting around the firepits the night before calling me. His wife had lost a gold earring in the sand near the firepit. It was a very special hierloom passed down to her from her grandmother. I was at the general location before Jeremy showed up and I could see a guy detecting the firepits.

Jeremy arrived about 10 minutes later. We walked out to the firepit where the loss occurred. I could see that the other detectorist had already worked this firepit area. Jeremy marked a 15’x 15’ zone that he believed the gold earring should be. Beginning to swing my 11” coil set up on my Equinox metal detector,  I knew there was a lot of trash metal in this location. It would be better to get my other detector with the 6” coil. 

I asked Jeremy to go ask the other detectorist if he had found the earring and he had not found the earring. I went back to my car to get the better detector for this trashy area. I also brought a small hand sand sifter to use up close to the cement firepit that is reinforced with iron rebar. If the earring was close to the firepit, the rebar might mask the possibility of getting a signal from my detector.

You won’t believe what happened after I got back to continue the search. Jeremy had a rake that a camper had lent him. I told him the rake was a waste of time for a small earring. It would be more helpful if he could use the small hand sifter to pull the sand away from the rebar cement firepit. 

Then I gave him a demonstration of how to use it. I took two short scoops with the scoop and the miracle happened. “BOOM “ there in the scoop was the gold earring. Exactly on the opposite side of the firepit where he believed the loss had happened. 

Unbelievable!! This was completely unexpected and I’m starting to get used to these types of recoveries. The best thing about it was Jeremy could return to the hotel to surprise his wife.

Lost Wedding Band – Pensacola Beach – Found!!!

  • from Orange Beach (Alabama, United States)

We live in a beautiful place!  I had a long day at work and was just settling in at home when I got a call from Chris. He had been out on Pensacola Beach enjoying the Gulf while vacationing down from Ohio. Chris was packing up everything from his day with the family and as he grabbed a chair he watched his gold band go flying in the sand. He quickly learned that even after searching with several pairs of hands for a half hour, those rings are impossible to find without a really good saltwater metal detector. Luckily someone at the resort gave him my number and he called. Very rarely do I get to take my wife with me and since this was a pretty straightforward return she decided to video the entire thing.  Check out the link below. It’s my attempt at video editing 😁 and look at the huge smile on Chris’ face when he gets his wedding band in his hand. Thanks for calling Chris and congratulations.
