Lost Ring in Punta Cana – Found!

from Madison (Wisconsin, United States)
Contact: 1-608-492-1070

A couple of months back, I got a call from a guy who said he had lost a ring in Punta Cana. I get calls from all around the United States for lost rings, even though I’m in Wisconsin. Google picks up my lost ring blogs, newspaper articles or podcasts that I’ve been featured in over the years. Neil told me he had lost his platinum Cartier ring at the Now Onyx Resort in Punta Cana. Wow! I had stayed at the exact same resort with my family only months earlier.  What are the chances?

Lost Cartier Ring

Neil found a blog of mine about a lost ring at the beach in Punta Cana. I was there on vacation and doing what I call “hobby hunting”.  Most of the time I spend metal detecting is for other people’s ring back in Wisconsin.  When we go on vacation, I always pack my detector so I can get some time hunting in the water.  Would you believe I found a lost wedding ring in the ocean?  So, I posted a blog with a picture to try to locate the couple. The picture of this ring is to the left. I still am hopeful that I can locate M + V someday.

Neil found the blog post and called me at 6:00 pm. After hearing his story, I felt the need to help even though I was in WI.  Would you believe I had a contact of a local guy in Punta Cana?  Well through the power of Facebook, I sent him a message and he responded instantly.  Roland was in contact with Neil within a couple of hours and they set a plan to search the next day.

As you can see in the picture, Roland was successful and Neil was ecstatic!  For the full story written by Neil, check out the following link about his lost Cartier ring.

If you’ve lost your ring, even if there isn’t someone listed in the directory – don’t be afraid to reach out to someone, as the metal detecting community is very close and chances are someone knows someone who knows someone close to you!

Gold Wedding Band Lost Molalla OR – Found by The Ring Finders

from Portland (Oregon, United States)
Contact: 1-509-365-8010

Zach was enjoying food and yard games at a local establishment in Mollalla, OR with his family. At some point, after grass volleyball and bean-bag toss Zach noticed his ring was missing. The visual search was brief as darkness closed in but the next day he returned with a friends metal detector. Unfortunately with new equipment the settings & multiple targets “beeps” can be overwhelming and he wasn’t able to find his band. Several days later he found “The Ring Finders” and my info. The Equinox 800 with 15″ coil was able to sniff out the gold band in about 30 minutes. Zach had searched the correct area and was right about “a lot of beeps” but with top-quality gear and a trained ear I was able to ignore most targets and zero-in on the few possibilities. As he put the ring on his finger and paused to comment I could tell this ring was special to him…

Zach, I’m happy you found “The Ring Finders” directory and even more pleased you allowed me to share that moment of finding and returning your ring with you today… don’t forget to get that ring resized.

Ring Lost in Saint Petersburg is Recovered by SRARC

Rick was playing league volleyball with his team at
the Rec Dec Sports Club in St Pete.  In between games, he noticed that the
ring he’d been wearing for 20 years was not on his finger!  Rick and about
30 other players were soon on their hands and knees, sifting through the sand
to no avail. The next day, Rick discovered The Ringfinders on the Internet and
contacted Joe Szemer. Joe put out a notification, and Mike and Mary Shuler
responded.  They met with the Rec Dec staff, who were aware of the
situation and welcomed the recovery attempt. At the end of the first pass along
the net, Mike had the ring in his scoop!  The ring was left with staff,
and was collected by its happy owner soon afterward.

Ring Lost on Siesta Key is Recovered by SRARC

The dreaded ring in the chair trick is no match for our Ringfinders!
************************************************
Rick and his wife were down from North Georgia near Atlanta enjoying the
wonderful beaches near Siesta Key. Rick’s wife took off her wedding band
and put it in the beach chair for safe keeping. When they were ready to
go they scooped up the chair, shook off the sand and headed for the
condo. Only to realize the ring was back on the beach. Rick found SRARC
online and made the call. Just so happens Mike Miller and Paul Hill were
less then a half mile away looking for another lost ring. They were
about ready to leave because the surf was too rough to hunt due to the
storms out in the gulf. They headed right over and were met by Rick
immediately. He took them to the spot were he thought they had set up on
the day before. The search began. Within 3 minutes Paul had the ring in
his scoop. Rick was amazed and truly shocked that they had recovered his
wife’s matching wedding band. He actually wiped a tear from his eye.
It just doesn’t get any better then that!
Enjoy your stay and come back any time!
Thanks guys for your compassion and time!

Gold & Platinum Ring Lost 4 Years Ago – Found by The Ring Finders

from Portland (Oregon, United States)
Contact: 1-509-365-8010

Elke & Alysia Littleleaf of “Littleleaf Guide Service” took me to an isolated spot on the Warm Springs Reservation along the picturesque Deschutes River for some “Dirt Fishing”. In June 2015, while fishing clients in the same area, Alysia took off her ring and secured it on her person while performing some vehicle maintenance. Hours later, after walking hundreds of yards between their vehicle and clients, she noticed her ring missing and no amount of visual or borrowed metal detector searching helped. Elke saw the 2016 Fox12 News spot on my services and the wheels started turning but we didn’t connect until yesterday. Using my Makro Gold and 5×10 elliptical coil I methodically searched the 6″-2′ high grass/weeds one likely area after another; I recovered pull tabs, shell casings and a few bottle caps. 2.5 hours into the search Alysia suggested lunch, which sounded great, but I wanted to make a pass along the recent tire track trampled weeds to recover some stakes I put down. About 30 yards from my stakes there was a short grass area I decided to search. A solid tone and a quick flip of the shallow dirt plug revealed gold and diamonds. I was about 100yds from Alysia & Elke so when I arrived at the rig for lunch I asked if they were curious to see all the items I had dug. When I opened my hand there was a piece of gold showing and Alysia asked “what is that” while slowly uncovering her ring. Tears, hugs, and handshakes followed! Earlier in the search a Bald Eagle had circled us and Elke said “this is a good sign”, yes it was!

Besides the reward of another happy customer I’m looking forward to my guided fishing trip on the Deschutes River with fly rod in hand and the tug of a Redband or Steelhead on the other end!
Thank you Elke & Alysia for the call and your great company for the day.

Lost Ring On Longboat Key Recovered by SRARC

Liz’s best friend Alicia visited with her family from Orlando over Memorial Day weekend. The two families decided to go to the beach to watch the sunset and then have dinner at St Armand’s Circle. When they arrived at St Armand’s it was so crowded that they decided to drive further up to Longboat Key to find a place to watch the sunset. They found a public access area where they could park and unloaded the car and kids and walked out to the beach. The children got busy right away and played in the sand until it was time to go. Johnny, Liz’s husband picked up their daughter Mackenzie and took her to the waters edge to clean the sand off of her hands and arms. After she was clean Johnny brushed his hands off on his pants and felt his wedding ring fall off into the water and disappear. They looked but had no luck so they headed home. The next day they rented a metal detector but still had no luck. A few days later, they found SRARC on the Ring Finders site. Howard put out a call and Mike Miller responded and soon arrangements were made to meet at the site. Liz arrived a little late and Mike had already recovered the ring before she got there. Liz was overjoyed as you can see in the picture. It has been a tough week for the family and the return of the ring was a big relief. Our best wishes for a rapid recovery of Johnny from his upcoming surgery.

Jessica, Daniel and friends traveled from Brooksville to Coquina Beach for a day in the sun and water over the Memorial day weekend. They were all in the water and tossing a nerf football between them. Jessica was standing to the side watching when all of a sudden Daniel threw the ball at her. She put her hand up to deflect the ball and off flew her wedding ring. They looked for about a half and hour or so, but decided there was no way to find it. A little later they contacted SRARC through Ring Finders and arrangements were made for a hunt the next day. Mike showed up at 6:30 am and started to hunt. After about 3 hours of hunting up came the ring. Whe informed her ring had been found, Jessica hopped into her car and drove all the way from Brooksville to retrieve it. As you can see in the picture she was all smiles.

Amy and Mark, from Illinois, were sunning on beautiful Treasure Island Beach, Florida. Mark took his ring off and dropped it, hitting the table in the cabana. The ring flew out into the sand.
