Taloria called late Saturday afternoon looking for help in finding her lost engagement ring. It was too late to drive the 1 ½ hrs to Baton Rouge and get any hunting in before dark, so we set up to meet early the next morning. When we arrived at the site, Taloria said she was on her way to a party with friends when she placed her engagement ring on her lap to apply some hand lotion. When they had parked in the grassy field, she exited the car not thinking about the ring. When she realized the ring was gone, she hunted in and around the car but did not find it. She then called us to help. Being she knew where the car was parked, the search area was small. The problems were tall grass and lots of trash (foil, pull tabs, drink containers, etc.). The hunt was very tedious. Sid got tired of the constant up and down to check out hits. He got on his hands and knees and crawled around using the pin pointer. The technique worked. A hit with the pointer and glints of shiny metal proved to be the ring. Taloria (also Carrie and Sid) were very excited. After reuniting Taloria with her beautiful ring, lots of hugs, lots of smiles, and lots of pictures, we all headed home.
Ryan and Mikka were vacationing on the Oregon Coast when Ryan discovered his wedding band missing. He had placed it in a zippered shorts pocket before heading onto the beach and realized 4 hrs later that pocket had a hole in it. I met Ryan, Mikka, Jack & Sally the following day and Ryan showed me 3 likely search areas South of their stroller wheel marks from the day before. With my CTX and 17″ coil I started covering sand but 2+ hrs later I hadn’t found the ring so we talked some more. He recalled another small area and I also decided a couple more 70 yard passes out to the ocean and back was reasonable… no ring. Before heading to the beach house with the bad news I decided to search a 30′ x 30′ area North of the stroller marks, and there it was, approx 20′ away… the stresses of losing a precious item easily fogs our recollection.
Both Ryan’s band and Mikka’s wedding ring have diamonds in them that were passed down through the family and therefore priceless to them… I love stories like this and that’s what makes our service, The Ring Finders, so special.
Ryan & Mikka, I really enjoyed our visit and returning your precious wedding band. I wish you and your family many years of happiness.

On Monday afternoon i received a message from a woman named Kathy. My friend Joe K referred her to me. She was visiting over the weekend and lost her wedding band while at the beach the day before. I decided to go out there that night to see if i could find it for her. Luckily she took a photo of where she was set up to help me start in the right area. After about an hour of finding trash and the occasional coin i had her ring in my scoop!. She was very happy to have it back on her finger where it belongs! Another great ending!

Indian Rocks Beach Ring Recovery
Alex was on Indian Rocks Beach Saturday swimming with his wife when he realized his wedding ring had come off. He found our SRARC Ringfinders website and contacted Howard Metts to see if we could help. Howard set up a hunt for the following Friday morning and was joined by Ed Osmar, Mike Shuler, and Dimitur Alipiev. After about 2 hours of hunting, Howard got a good signal and scooped up the ring. The ring is now on the way to Alex in Texas. What a great way to end the week!
Austin met me on the beach a few weeks ago while I was detecting. I gave him a card and said if he ever knew anyone who needs a recovery have them call me. Well, little did he know he would need my service. He called and asked if I could come to Margate to locate his ring that he dropped in the sand where he was sitting. When I got there he outlined an area of where the ring could be. He was pretty much on spot because I turned my Minelab Equinox on right over top of his ring. Boom!! Had it in less than 15 seconds. He was happy and surprised to have his wedding ring back!!! I have a feeling he’s gonna refer me to the next person he knows who loses something. 😎😎
Thank you Action News Channel 6 WPVI Philadelphia PA for airing the story of my ringreturn for the couple celebrating their 1st wedding anniversary in Atlantic City. This is Posted in 2 parts. Thank You Very Much for viewing.
Lara explained that while gesturing with her hands she felt her husbands wedding ring, who had passed a month earlier, slip off her finger and into her yard somewhere. She had used a rented metal detector with no luck and then googled and found The Ring Finders. We met early the next morning, reenacted the loss, and I went to work in the most logical area. Having no luck there I expanded the search. On the other side of the asphalt driveway, approximately 20′ away from where she was standing at the time of the loss, I found the ring; round objects can take funny bounces.
Hugs, tears of joy, and conversation revealed the value of this find and return… priceless!
Lara, thank you for the call and I wish you and your children eternal happiness.

Dad was doing yard work around their lovely home in the old Montclair neighborhood of east Denver. After mowing, pulling weeds and cleaning up the yard Dad noticed his wedding ring was missing. Searching around turned up nothing so it had to be in the yard somewhere. Mom searched out a rind finder service and contacted the Tenacious Treasure Tracker . After an hour searching we ruled out the front yard, so we moved on to the back yard. Half way through the back yard and under a tree swing we struck silver bling. Made the entire family happy.Standin for Dad.
Received a call from Jared who was Recently married like 2 months ago. He was frantic because he just lost his platinum wedding band in the surf while boogie boarding in Margate. I responded immediately and met him on the beach. It was full high tide but I went in anyway. I quickly realized that it wasn’t going to happen. The waves were over my head and I couldn’t even get the coil down. Jared’s mom and two sisters were there. His mom kept asking if I thought I could find it. I said I was going to come back at low tide a give it my best shot. Low tide was 2 am and I got there at 12 am. I grid from the top of the slope down into the water. I had grid for a while finding a few coins along the way. I started to worry but then BAM! A solid 13 on my Minelab Equinox. I said “Please don’t be another nickel”. But the tone was slightly different and the ring flopped out onto the sand.
I called Jared and told him I found his ring. He was in disbelief. He came down with his family including his mother. She immediately stated that she lost a bet against me finding the ring 🤪. His wonderful sisters said they knew I would find it. 😎 His wife was asleep. Jared was more than happy having his ring found and said his wife will be happy when she hears. Thank you for contacting me as it was not only my pleasure to reunite you with your heirloom but to meet you and your family and share a few laughs.
Last night around 12am while on my way out to a beach with my friend Dennis, I received a message from Fellow Ring Finder Edward Cropski aka N.J. Lost Ring Finder with contact information for Raj, Who also messaged me minutes later. He was at Island Beach State Park earlier that day with his family. While he was wiping the sand off a boogie board his wedding ring flew off his finger. After searching by hand for a few hours he decided to do a web search where he found the Ringfinders website. I went home and slept for a few hours then met him at the beach at 7:30am. During the summer months detecting is not allowed there on the weekends and you also need a permit (Which i have). He was granted permission for me to come and do a search. He and his wife showed me where they were the day before. Within 15 minutes i was able to recover his ring!. Another wonderful ending! #Minelabfind
