I got a call from Axtlan’s mother. It seems he had been working out at the old Muscle Beach, climbing the ropes, and working on some of the other equipment, and lost his car key in the sand. It hadn’t been too long, and I wasn’t very far from there, so I told her I would come right away.

When I got there they showed me the 3 possible areas the loss could have occurred, and I got to work. I searched the first one, and no key. I then went to the second one, no key. Finally I searched the third spot, no key. I told them I would expand the search, but also asked if they had checked the nearby snack stand to see if someone might have found it and turned it in, and they hadn’t. I encouraged them to do so, and they seemed a bit apprehensive, I guess feeling the key would not have been turned over, and because it was a little out of the way, but I pressed the issue, letting them know that I would expand my search of the key in the mean time. Axtlan decided to walk over to check, and on his way over, he found the key sitting on top of a bench. Someone had found the key and placed it there hoping the owner would find it. Axtlan and his mother told me he would not have walked that way if I had not pressed the issue, and needless to say were very happy with the outcome. Always glad to help!

Lost Wedding Ring In North Spokane, Found !!!

from Spokane (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-509-263-8995

As I pulled into my last window cleaning job for the day, Steve a caring husband called me about his wife’s lost silver wedding ring. A month ago Steve and his wife were raking the backyard. After the work was done Steve’s wife’s ring was long gone, until today. After I arrived Steve showed me the pile of grass that was raked up and the small yard where they were working. I searched the pile of grass and found a dime which gave a very similar reading to his wife’s ring. So then I started my grid around the outside of the yard. As I got close to an old tree stump my coil passed over two signals. One of the signals was a penny and the other, the wedding ring Steve’s wife lost. At this point I didn’t know where Steve had gone off too. So I put the ring in my hand with the few coins and pull tabs that I found in my short search. I walked over to the stairs where I saw Steve last and set the handful of finds down on the rail. Just as I stood up I heard Steve say, “find anything”? With a hidden smile I pointed to the pile and said “yeah this stuff right here”. Steve walked over and started looking really hard at the pile of stuff when he noticed the ring under a freshly dug pull tab. Wow, OMG, Where did you find it, OMG. All this being said, I gathered he was happy the search for his wife’s ring was over. Later after I left he called and said his wife was crying on the phone after he sent her a picture of her lost ring. This is what makes a successful hunt magical, the opportunity to give a lost item back to the owner and the “thank you’s” that stream down their face. Thanks for trusting me Steve and believing in the Ring finders.

Ring Lost At Jewfish Key, Recovered By SRARC

Rick and his wife Dale had pulled their boat up to a sand bar near Jewfish Island and were enjoying the ankle-deep water and tossing a football. Suddenly Dale realized that her diamond wedding ring that Rick have placed on her finger 17 years ago was missing. They immediately started feeling through the sand and got everyone nearby to help but to no avail the ring was not found.
Later that evening Rick found The Ringfinder website and contacted Tom Jones. Tom sent out a request for hunters to meet Rick at the nearby boat ramp. Tom Jones and Mike Miller met Rick and went out to the sandbar. Once anchored up Rick walked over to a navigational sign and started counting his steps back toward the boat. After 25 steps or so he stopped and said, “it’s right here in this area” while swinging his arms in a circular motion. Mike started hunting from that spot while Tom was asking Rick the normal questions like which way was she facing, is she right or left handed, did she fall. Mike interrupted with the question. ”What does it look like?” as he pulled the ring out of his scoop.
Rick immediately called Dale to give her the good news that her precious lost ring was found.

Newlywed’s Honeymoon Happily Continues at Sunset Beach, NC

Contact: 1-843-655-5889

Howard called me around 11 a.m. saying he had lost his wedding band, and asked if I could help find it. He continued by saying he had lost it in a big clump of grass and hadn’t been able to locate it. He further told me he was at the Sandpiper Bay Golf and Country Club at Sunset Beach, NC. I told him I’d be there in about 30 minutes.

On my drive up there, I’m thinking he may have lost it on the golf course and was hoping he had a good idea of exactly where it came off his finger. I ended up at the community club house instead of the golf course club house and asked a lady where the course club house was. She asked if I was the ring guy, after replying in the affirmative, she said that her husband was the one that lost his ring. Luckily, he had lost his ring in the landscaping Saw grass around the pool area in about a 5 ft square area. Rachelle and I introduced ourselves, and as we’re walking to the area she said that they had gotten married 2 weeks ago and that he’s had his ring for 2 days. We met up with Howard and he said that the ring was a little tight. He also said that he’s not use to wearing jewelry, so he had the ring about half way on his finger when it fell off. He heard the ring hit the cement, saw it bounce, and then disappear in the grass. I grabbed my AT PRO and started running it over the top of the grass where he thought it was. He told me it was a 14K gold wedding band, so I knew I’d be looking for a VDI (visual display indicator) number in the high 50s. After going over his suspected area a couple of times, I moved down the sidewalk, and about a yard or so I got a solid 57 on the detector. Visually, I couldn’t see anything so I used my pin pointer and BANG, found it buried deep in the grass. I pulled it out, wiped it off, and stuck it up for him to grab. He was flabbergasted that he had it back, he told me he had just about given up on finding it. Rachelle gave out a woo hoo shout. Honeymoon was saved.

Howard and Rachelle, thank you for trusting in me to help find your lost treasure. Enjoy the rest of your honeymoon and have a safe trip back home to Denver, CO.

Wedding and Engagement Rings Lost in Garden of Torrance, CA Hotel…Found and Returned.

I woke up the other day to an email from William who explained that his wife’s wedding and engagement rings were lost in the garden of a local hotel. They had just come from a celebration, and his wife had taken off her rings and given them to William to hold, when in a moment of play he decided to toss them over his shoulder, not thinking of the ramifications of the rings going into the bushes and ground cover. They searched, but it was at night and it very hard to see. I answered his email, and he called shortly after. We decided to meet at the hotel when he had a break from his job.

When I got there, about 4:00 PM, William was already there, and he took me over to the area, and went over what had happened. I began a search with the detector, but found that there was too much metal to be able to get a good search in. I then brought out the pin pointer to do a slow grid in the shrubbery, and began from the side of the hand he thrown the rings with. As I was searching William could not believe it, he found the diamond solitaire at the edge of the shrubs on the sidewalk, in full view of anyone who would have walked by since the night before. Fortunately no one saw the ring. I then decided to focus my attention to the area he found the first ring, and worked it well with the pin pointer. After finding some bottle caps, foil, and other metallic objects, I received another signal. I pushed aside the leaves and grass, and there it was, the second ring. Anyway, needless to say, William was very grateful, and relieved to know that he could go home with the rings he had lost the night before. A lot of fun helping people get things right.

Lost Gold Wedding Band at Naia Lagoon Ko Olina Resort…FOUND!!!

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)


This ring find began when I was hunting the lagoon waters with my Equinox. I was approached by a gentleman named Alex from Ukraine who lost his gold wedding band in the dry sand seating area of Naia Lagoon. He asked if I would attempt to find his ring as six adults scoured the area with no luck the previous day. Of course I said and we went up to the area. Alex drew an approximate grid in the dry sand and I started the hunt. After a pull tab I got a nice tone and there in the scoop was Alex’s ring. Elapsed time three minutes. Alex was surprised by the speedy recovery and was very appreciative of the service. Vacation saved. Aloha to Alex.

I received a call from Annette yesterday requesting my service to help her locate an earring that had been lost Wednesday in the park. We agreed to meet this morning.

When I met up with Annette  she said the earrings were very special to her as they were hand made in South Africa and had sentimental value to her.  Annette showed me the area where she had been walking , and that was now covered in fallen autumn leaves  just like her lost earring.

After about a 1  1/2hour search her earring was found and Annette was very happy to have her missing earring back in her possession.

Thank you Annette for entrusting me to help you find your lost earring.

 

Cell Phone Lost in North Myrtle Beach SC, Found and Returned

from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-843-655-5889

On Wednesday, Sept 26th, I was out doing a little metal detecting on my own and not finding a whole lot. I suddenly got a solid signal with a VDI of 32 on my Equinox 800. Pretty sure I had found a cell phone, I carefully dug a big hole so I wouldn’t damage the phone. Sure enough, I found a Samsung Galaxy S8 about 4 to 5 inches deep in the wet sand. It wasn’t damaged, but it wasn’t powering up either. So, the phone either had a dead battery or was shot from being submerged.

When I got home I pulled the case off and cleaned it up. Not knowing how long it’d been in the sand, I didn’t want to plug it in and set it aside to dry out. In the meantime, I contacted an acquaintance at Verizon and gave him the IMEI number off the back of the phone. With that number, he can look it up and be able to see if the phone belongs to a Verizon customer. If he has a match, he’ll contact the owner and have them call me. I got lucky with this one. I hate not being able to find the phone’s owner, 1-I have no use for somebody else’s phone, and 2-I’m sure the owner has pictures or other information they don’t want to lose.

It was a week before Eric, from Maryland, contacted me about his phone, I had actually forgotten about it. I told him that I had taken his phone to Verizon and we weren’t able to power it up or charge it. However, we were able to get his SIM card out of the phone and we taped it to the front of the phone. He said he had a large number of contacts on the phone that he hadn’t backed up to the Cloud so he was very grateful his phone was found. I got his address and sent his phone home.

LOST ENGAGEMENT RING BATON ROUGE, LA. – FOUND

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

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.
