Imani contacted me about a bracelet she had lost 2 days before. We talked about it, and I made sure she knew that because of the time involved, the chances of a recovery had diminished, but let her know there was still hope. She was at work, and I had a dental appointment, so we scheduled to meet at the spot later in the afternoon.

She had lost it just outside of a volleyball court, and she was sitting there waiting for me when I arrived. Imani explained that she had taken off the bracelet putting it in the pocket of her beach chair, and when she was leaving, she picked the chair up, and the bracelet fell out. She showed me where she had been, so I began the search. I went about 5 feet when I got a good signal. I scooped the sand, and in the scoop was a necklace. Imani immediately identified it telling me she never thought we would find it, so she never included it in the search. Well right next to the necklace was her bracelet. One scoop, and it was back in Imani’s hand. She let me know that the bracelet had been given to her by someone very special in her life, so to lose it hurt quite a lot. It brought her tears of joy when she saw it again. I was so privileged to see that smile.

Ring lost while proposing

  • from Fernandina Beach (Florida, United States)

Got a text this morning with this story.  On a weekend trip to Amelia Island, my boyfriend and I walked down to the beach at the State Park.   It was on Sunday around noon and we were about to leave.  He took me down to the beach and went to take the ring out of his pocket to propose to me but the ring snagged on his his shirt and went flying.   I couldn’t believe this, he took the ring out and it snagged and now was lost.   We contacted the ranger who looked with a metal detector and we even went and bought a cheap metal detector.   We looked for 6 plus hours and gave up.  We had to get back to West Virginia.  Melissa found me on Google this morning and text me her story.   I drove to the location and within 5 minutes I got a good signal.  One scoop in the sand and the ring was found.  Her future in-laws are headed to Florida and will pick it up on their way down.   Now they have a happy proposal story.

Lost Wedding Ring Set in Laguna Beach, CA. at Three Arch Bay in the Sand..

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

















I am available to help you now.. Call or text .. 949-500-2136 .. Stan the Metal Detector Man

*** Katie lost two gold and diamond rings from her beach chair cup holder while at Three Arch Bay in Laguna Beach, CA. Her husband contacted me at 9pm, asking me if I would be available to search for the rings the next day. 

He believed his wife was driving home after 4 hours searching unsuccessfully for the two very sentimental rings. He wanted to verify if she could meet me the next morning. When he returned a  call to me, he said she was still on the beach with 6 other people, with sifters and a beginners type metal detector. 

I told him I could be there in 30 minutes if Katie could wait at the location. This is a private gated community so they had to clear me through the security gate. She said yes and I was on my way. 

When I got to the beach, walking down the steps in the dark, I could see an army of searchers ( 6 ). Katie showed me where she had been sitting. The tide was rising and would soon be covering the potential spot where the loss could have occurred. I turned on my detector taking a few swings. Immediately I got multiple signals. With the whole group of searchers around me I dug up the first ring. The next scoop was the second ring.. 

Everyone celebrated with excitement and cheers of joy. They were also surprised that they had not been able to find either of the rings. Several of them said they spent much of their search time in the exact location..  A bit of experience, prompt response and the proper equipment is the secret to a successful recovery.. That’s what I offer.. 

If you lose something of importance call or text … Stan the Metal Detector Man ..949-500-2136 .. I WILL TRY ANYWHERE.. Metal Detecting is what I do..

Lost Gold Ring Found in Brighton Michigan

  • from Detroit (Michigan, United States)

Showing Off…..

….Was not the intention of Derek’s fiancée. However, after arriving home to a surprise engagement party the urge to brag was too overwhelming. As the evening progressed her ring was being passed around for friends and family to behold the beauty of it while the bride to be watching in close proximity. After dark she recalled it being returned to her but after getting into the house the ring was nowhere to be found. With family from out of state on their way to stay the weekend and all their friends present notified of the disappearance, what were they to do? Searching into the wee hours of the morning brought no luck. When I arrived, Derek went over the possible areas the ring could be. Using my MXT metal detector I started a grid search of the first area. Thankfully, this was the correct area from the signal and meter reading on the metal detector. Probing my pin-pointer thru the thick grass revealed this eye catching, stunningly beautiful ring! As I held it up Derek practically fell over into the grass in total disbelief that it was found. Reality set in quickly as he held it in his hand, cherishing the symbol and meaning of love for his fiancée and their future life together.



Phone Lost While Kayaking the Flint River…FOUND by Ring Finder in Brownsboro, AL!

  • from Huntsville (Alabama, United States)

Christina McCree – Ring Finder/Metal Detectorist for northern Alabama and southern/middle Tennessee…call or text ASAP, anytime 24/7…610-504-6135

On August 22nd, 2023, I received a call from Maurice stating he had lost his Samsung Galaxy S20 cell phone while kayaking the Flint River in Brownsboro, Alabama.  It had been about a week since the loss.  Maurice had already bought a new phone, but he really wanted all the files he had on the one that was lost.  Maurice made a post on Facebook for help on how to recover his phone.  Someone mentioned my name in the comments, so that’s how he discovered the metal detecting service, The Ring Finders.  We decided that he should first try a local group that specializes in item recoveries from the Flint River, because of the limited entry/exit points.  You pretty much have to kayak that entire 5.5-mile stretch of river (3–4-hour float) to get to the area of loss.

Unfortunately, that group wasn’t available to search for Maurice’s phone, so he reached back out to me.  We planned a kayak trip on Sunday, September 17th.  I met Maurice at the North Alabama Canoe and Kayak (NACK) rental.  I had all of my water detecting gear and Minelab Equinox 800.  We got on the river and made our way down to where Maurice lost his phone.  It was just past the powerlines, where you need to call the rental place to pick you up.  His kayak had flipped over on a rough spot, next to a log.

The water was pretty cold, so I had on my 3mm wetsuit.  There was a decent current by the log, but it was fairly shallow.  There was a 4-5-foot-deep spot, so that’s where we thought the phone should be.  I cleared the main shallow area and focused in on the deeper spot.  I ended up finding 2 other cell phones, which were not Maurice’s (I’ll try to get them back to the rightful owners).  I searched further down the river, but still didn’t find it.  I went back to that deeper spot and ended up finding another phone.  This time, it was the right one — Maurice’s phone!

Maurice was so happy to have his phone back!  We celebrated and I thanked the Lord for a successful recovery.  I packed up my gear, we took some photos, and we kayaked to the pick-up spot.  Even though the phone had been in the river for about a month, Maurice had it back and should be able to retrieve the data from his SD card.  I’m so thankful and blessed that I’m able to use my hobby of metal detecting to help others.  All thanks and praise to God!  Looking forward to the next adventure…

Lost Gold Wedding Band in deep Snow in Brampton, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Sephra and her Son Aadam were playing in the snow after a big snowstorm in Brampton, Ontario.

Sephra had to fix Aadam’s zipper and as she took her snow gloves off her ring flew off into the deep snow.

They searched the snow for a while with no luck. Sephra took to a Google search and found TheRingFinders directory!

I arrived the next day after work and started the grid search amongst lots of underground utilities and interference.

I came across a great signal, and asked Aadam to give me a hand with my pin pointer. I always like to get kids involved in the search in hopes of inspiring them to try metal detecting!

Aadam was a pro and successfully found his mother’s gold wedding band!! Nothing beats that great big smile on a child!

here’s the video of the ring recovery in the snow and Aadam’s big smile!

It was a pleasure to help and get Aadam involved!
