Lost Wedding Ring – Pensacola Beach- FOUND!!!

from Pensacola (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-850-346-1736

Today was such a cool day because I got to help out a fellow detectorist. 😳👍 Allan and Ami came down for the weekend to celebrate their 16th anniversary and unfortunately Murphy’s Law struck quickly. As they were waiting to check in they decided to wade out in the beautiful Gulf waters. Allan was explaining to Ami that she had to be very careful out in the deeper water because your ring can fall right off your hand. As he touched his left hand to illustrate his point… you guessed it, Kerplunk! Allan’s ring fell straight down in the water and quickly buried in the sand. Luckily they emailed me and although I didn’t get the email until late last night, we touched base first thing this morning. I quickly started getting ready and unfortunately tragedy struck. I badly pulled a muscle in my upper back and had to be helped to lie down. My wife sent Allan and Ami a text explaining that I was hurt and there was no way I could come today. They are very nice people and were more concerned with my health than anything else. I took some Motrin and laid still for a few hours until I dozed off. I woke up and realized that whatever had popped in my back was back where it was supposed to be and although I was really sore, I gingerly went to the front yard to see if I could swing my detector without too much pain. It hurt but I knew Allan and Ami were leaving town at 2pm and I really wanted to send his ring with them. I gave them a call and luckily they were still here and about to have lunch at Pegleg’s. I was quickly enroute to the beach.  Well Allan has done a lot of land detecting and he had tried to mark the location of the ring when it fell and did a great job. I always do a larger area and overlap my passes multiple ways because I have learned what Allan was about to; it’s never where it’s supposed to be in the water. 😃. The first thing I found was an iPhone X in a Lifeproof case complete with multiple credit cards (stay tuned for that return story this week 😉). Although it definitely wasn’t their ring, I think it gave Ami some hope that I really could find stuff buried in the sand out in the water. It wasn’t too many passes before I was worried that Allan might be getting concerned that I was in the wrong area. But then I heard that beautiful sound!!!  I called to Allan and waved him out to join me. He looked shocked when I told him that I thought I had located it and asked if he would like to do the “honors” and “dig it up”. He told me to go ahead and I very gently dug a large scoop full of sand. When I verified with my machine that I had whatever it was in my scoop, I just smiled and handed the scoop to him. Well, he smiled even bigger when he washed out the sand and saw his ring gleaming back at him. It was a great moment when he quickly put that ring back where it belongs and began striding back to Ami to show her that their anniversary weekend just got a whole lot better. 😃

Thank you Allan and Ami for letting me help you and for your patience and understanding when I was hurt this morning. Thank you also to the very nice front desk crew (especially Gillian) at the Holiday Inn Pensacola Beach who allowed me to park on property and even helped us celebrate when Allan showed them his ring!  👍👍👍

Lost Heirloom ring in Sea Bright NJ Found by Matt St.Germain aka Jersey Shore Lost Ring Finder

from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-732-581-0285

On 8/7/18 I received a message from Shawna about a lost ring. She was visiting a beach in Sea Bright NJ for the day and while swimming in chest deep water during high tide she felt her late mother’s ring slip off her finger in the water. Even though i was off the next day and had some things to take care of i assured her i would go out later that night during the low tide to conduct a search for the ring. The only problem is the weather was not working in my favor. Lightning storms were coming in and i became worried i would not be able to go out that night to look for it. I was watching the lightning tracker like a hawk, Once i saw a small window of opportunity (1hr after the peak low tide) I jumped in my truck and headed out there. With not much time to search now that the tide was already starting to come back in i got there as quickly as i could. I made my way out to the area it was lost and within 15 mins i had found her lost ring! About 8″ deep at the shoreline! I sent her a picture and she came out within 30mins to meet me. I was very happy to reunite her with it! Another wonderful ending!

July 31st i got a message from my friend and Fellow Ring Finder Dennis Burligame about a lost ring he attempted to recover but was not able to. He asked me if i would give it a try also knowing i was going to head out that night. Of course i will i told him. He sent me a photo of the area the owner (Nick) had sent to him showing where he was when it was lost. Going by that photo and the time of day it was lost (High tide) I waited until the early Am low tide so i could cover a broader area.Using my minelab Equinox 800 I started my grid up high where it was lost and slowly worked my way down the wet sand slope as close to the water as possible. In a little over and hour i found it close to the water’s edge about 10-12″ deep! The surf had dragged it down the beach and buried it good. Needless to say Nick was very happy when he received a picture of his ring via text and was very thankful to get it back. Another great ending!

 

Lost Cell phone in LBI NJ Found by Matt St Germain / Jersey Shore Lost Ring Finder

from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-732-581-0285

On July 20th I received an email from a girl named Jamie who had lost her iphone. She purchased a metal detector and searched for it for a few days without any luck. She then reached out to me for some help. Going by the map images she sent me with the last known location of the phone before the battery died, I started a search in that area while marking a grid. The biggest issue working against me is that she told me trucks had come in and dumped more sand on the beach after she lost it. But the phone had been moved around a few times. Most likely from the sand being graded and the beach rake making passes. In about an hour and widening my search area I was able to locate the phone about 12-14″ down. She and her Father were very happy to hear I had found it! Another happy customer!

Lost ring in Bedford New Hampshire found and returned

from Boston (Massachusetts, United States)
Contact: 1-603-809-3622

I got an email notification from a Doug in Bedford New Hampshire who dropped his wedding ring in his own back yard. He saw where it went, which was a simple one square foot hole next to where he was having a pool installed. Simple enough right! The next day he emptied the hole and put all the dirt through a strainer, but no ring? He then bought a metal detector and scanned the hole and the dirt he got out of the hole and still no ring? I showed up Sunday at Douglas’s home and listened to his story while staring at the hole. Listening and thinking about all the crazy possibilities I have encountered over the last few years. It can be very amusing, but knowing Doug was stressed over this magnificent ring I kept a serious mind set and demeanor. I put on my sniper coil and scanned the hole and the dirt just as Doug had and got no response. I did get a few indications that the detector was trying to pick up a signal, but absolutely nothing that would indicate a target of any size or metal remotely made of gold, so I backed off the discrimination and increased the sensitivity and still only a few bits of static. I backed the discrimination down to zero and started picking up a few small bouncy iron signals, so those being my only options I chose to check each one with my hand held pin pointer. Turns out the ring some how rolled, bounced, or slid underneath the edge of the sidewalk. You can see in the one photo where Doug is

kneeling, above the white pipe, there is a dug out portion. The ring was standing on edge and packed underneath the sidewalk, which contains some small amounts of metal debris or maybe reinforcement, which was making it partly invisible to the detector. Fortunately I recognize when my Teknetics T2 is trying to tell me I have two different metals intertwined. There was probably a crack or a small crevasse running along the edge there and the ring must have gotten there and then was covered in the initial excavation process. I wont go into detail, but Doug showed some serious relief, which almost made me show some serious relief. LOL It was a happy occasion to say the least!

Texas A&M Class Ring Lost at Cypress Creek in Austin, Texas by John Volek TRF-Houston

Texas A&M Class Ring Lost at Cypress Creek in Austin, Texas

I was contacted by Daniel a resident of Austin, Texas who was looking for someone to help him find his lost Texas A&M Class Ring… Daniel reported he had been vacationing on Cypress Creek (Lake Travis) in Austin, Texas when he had the mis-fortune of losing his prized possession, his Texas A&M Class Ring. Daniel said, he had been playing with his dogs in Cypress Creek when he felt the ring slip off of his finger and land in three-four foot of water. Daniel reported he spent hours searching the muddy bottom with his bare hands, but he was unsuccessful at finding his ring. Daniel said, a week or so later, an internet search on lost rings..returned a search result for Houston Metal Detecting Services – The Ring Finders Houston, Texas. Daniel said he didn’t hesitate for a minute…calling to make an inquiry about finding his ring. After numerous discussion with Daniel, we felt the recovery would be possible, 3-5 foot of water and a mucky bottom…and a fairly definitive area where the ring was lost. Nearly two-weeks from the day the ring was lost…we were at the location to conduct the search for Daniels ring. The site location had changed drastically…the water level was now down 3-5 feet from when Daniel had been at the location. The search proved to be quite challenging, we were fighting a 105-degree heat index, and the displaced water had created a mud bog along the creek. The going was slow and difficult, numerous targets added to the difficulty of the search. After about and hour, and our third or fourth pass through the mud bog, success! Hit a good target buried in about 4-6” of mud.

Lost Texas A&M Ring Canyon Lake, Texas found by John Volek TRF-Houston

Contact: 1-281-330-7758

Lost Texas A&M Ring Canyon Lake, Texas
I was contacted by Kelly, a Comal Country Deputy Sheriff who was looking for someone to help find her brothers Texas A&M Class Ring…
Kelly posted a comment amongst some of her friends on Facebook, and a fellow Police Officer responded that they new just the right person.
I spoke to Kelly a short time later and she explained that her brother Brian had lost his new Texas A&M Class Ring in a swim area in Canyon Lake.
Kelly put me in contact with Brian, and he provided additional details on his ring and the location lost. Brain indicated he was having a get together with some of his former military brothers at Canyon Lake.
Brain said it was during this event that he lost his new ring. Brian said while swimming in the lake, he felt his ring slip off and drop down to about the 8-foot mark. Brian said he tried effortlessly to recover his ring that afternoon.
Brian indicated he returned the following day with some dive gear and made another effort at recovering his lost ring, but he had no success.
I am guessing it was during this point, that his sister got wind of the situation and started her own investigation!
Kelly and Brian both provided photographs of the search location…and Brian was very confident he had a very good idea of where the ring had come off his hand.
I contacted my partner Carl to see if he was up for a 6 hour round trip dive adventure to Canyon Lake…
We made final arrangements with Brian to meet him at the location on Sunday morning to search for his lost ring.

The BIGGEST Diamond Ring I have ever found and the Hardest Hunt. 3 days in Tall grass

from Chicago (Illinois, United States)
Contact: 1-773-206-8476

Received a call at about 7:00PM to look for a 18K diamond ring that was lost throwing a small stick. They knew exactly where in their back yard!! (In the grass) They were so emotional about it, and it sounded like a easy hunt, I went out immediately. I arrived before nightfall. A couple of things that I had not been told about. Grass was 3 to 4 feet tall, near a retention pond, and it included cattails!! Needless to say I did not find it.

I returned the next morning with a scythe (Yes I know how to use it! I’m OLD and cut grass with one along the highway for the county when I was a kid) a rake, and both my CTX and XPDeus detectors and all my coils. I cut some of the grass and started to search. After several hours of hard labor, I asked them to rent a industrial weedwacker. I cut more grass all the way to the retention pond and searched. 7 hours later…Nothing!

Returned the next day with Ron Shore another Ringfinder. I knew the ring was there and was very frustrated, but stubborn. We hunted for about 4 hours. Nothing. Both becoming frustrated. This seemed like an easy hunt. So I decided to start from scratch. I ran a gridline starting at the waters edge and worked my way back to where she had been standing. I checked out EVERY signal with my handheld pinpointer. Not 5 feet from where she was standing I found the ring. I marked the spot and told the woman that we decided to quit hunting since Ron and I were exhausted. I told her I had marked a spot that I had received a signal but I was too tired to look and would she check it out.. BINGO!!!!

Here is what was interesting and a lesson I learned. Ron was using the the AT Gold with a nell coil and I was using my CTX with my 17 Inch coil for coverage. Since I knew it was a very Large 18K ring ( Bigger than a mens College ring) I assumed the signal would BLAST us. NO way. The signal I got didn’t lock on and jumped around from 34 to 38 no solid red. Ron had the same issue. He said he would never have dug that signal. Perhaps the unique shape of the ring with different layers created the issue.

The lesson is to start at about 5 feet BEHIND the point of standing and grid Forward. Rings that are lost while throwing sticks generally are about 10 feet from the starting point. Rings are generally NOT where they think.
