Huge Platinum FOUND

Travis and Dave

I received this call yesterday asking if I could help find a Platinum wedding ring lost over 200 feet from shore. In this situation my clients usually can’t get me anywhere close due to the distance. Lucky my client looked at a landmark and also counted the paces to shore. 83 total paces!! I said I could search the next morning. I met Travis around 9am we paced out 83 paces and I went to work. My 2nd target was Travis’s 1oz platinum wedding ring. Happy Days:-)

18k Gold wedding band lost cleaning up leaves in Guelph, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Paul and his Wife were completing yard work this past weekend at their home in Guelph, Ontario.

Later in the day after most of the work was completed, Paul got into his vehicle and noticed his wedding band was not on his ring finger.

I headed out with my Minelab Equinox800 multi frequency metal detected. Started to grid search near the fence line. Back tracked the back yard. Then into the side yard we’re 8+ bags of leaves had been packed in.

Four to six feet away I had a solid double tone of 18 on the Nox and knew immediately I located the ring.

I called Paul and his wife over as and his Wife of 36 years if she would like to put his wedding band back on his fingers!! Paul had recently lost weight and his wedding band was extremely loose!!

Check out the video of this 18k gold wedding recovery and return;

They were very happy to get this sentimental wedding band back to were it belongs!!

Paul will be making a donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation as part of my “pay-it-forward” program. In turn, Paul will receive and tax receipt!

Thank you Paul for entrusting me with helping you recover and return your lost wedding band!!

Lost Diamond earring on a farm in Belfountain, Caledon, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Angela was out completing farm duties on a beautiful day in a lovely area of Caledon in the quaint village of Belfountain.

Angela and her good Friend Sarah are both horse owners and I’ve know them for a while now. They were loading the horses and the donkeys during the into a trailer throughout the day to head off to their winter digs. Eddie the donkey was not wanting any part of getting on the trailer and had to go for a walk-a-bout with Angela to relax.

Later that day, Angela realized one of her her diamond earrings was missing. Sarah immediately called me for help as she knew I was a metal detectorista and a proud member of the global organization called TheRingFindersDotCom. I had helped another one of Sarah’s Friends successfully recover and return two stainless steel throwing knives lost on his property!

I proceeded immediately after work to Angela’s home and discussed her path throughout the day on her farm. I was in for the very difficult task because any lost small earring or small linked chain is extremely hard to find with a metal detector because there is so little material. It is absolutely a needle in the haystack! I did however call upon a Minelab metal Detexperts and fellow RingFinders Laurie and Eric for advise on my metal detector settings! Park 2 mode and 40 hertz! BINGO! I was able to detect the other earring in Angela’s possession!!! I had hope!

First evening I attempted to check around to south end of the small barn and then looked inside were some equipment was. The evening turned dss asap and cold. My headlamp was helpful but Angela invited me in for a hot drink and dinner! We called it a night! She really felt there was no luck to find it.

On the second day in the late afternoon I proceeded to check in the chicken coop area then the other half of the small barn. I then proceeded continuing my grid search pattern into the laneway where they were loading of the horses and donkeys took place.

Within 20 minutes I had a strong tone and I was completely shocked and amazed that I spotted under a half inch of dirt the beautiful diamond earring was there. I truly was in disbelief as I knew this task was a tremendous challenge.

Angela since returned and was awaiting her husband Ariel to come home. I didn’t let on to Angel that I found the earring and was now looking for the earring screw back!

I was trying to think of ways on how to surprise her and her husband! I then was invited in to warm up as well the offer of another lovely dinner. I then asked Angela to do a starting video for the RingFinders blog for good luck and finally this was the golden opportunity to recorder the surprise!!

NAILED IT!! And check out my YouTube video!!

I have a “Pay-it-forward” program for recovering and returning clients item(s)! I usually have a reasonable call out fee which I waived. The reward for finding the clients item instead of me receiving a reward, is my request for the client to make an immediate donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!! The client then receives a tax receipt for the donation! We ALL WIN!!

I was absolutely HUMBLED with Angela’s incredible OVER-THE-TOP donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!! Angela is my top donator in the 13 years of my participation and charity fundraising for the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!!! I was completely humbled and felt my services were truly appreciated!! This is by far my best fundraising year for this incredible foundation!!

I can’t thank you enough Angel and Arial for your incredible donation!!! It was truly my extreme pleasure to help great Friends out!!

AMEN St. Anthony for answering my Prayer!

Lost Gold Engagement Ring, Ottwell Neighborhood, Edmonton Alberta

  • from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact:

             

I received a frantic call form Linda yesterday afternoon requesting my service to locate her gold engagement ring which she had lost while installing her Christmas lights! Linda told me she had spent a couple of hours searching for her ring in the shrubs and on the lawn with no luck. Within a 1/2 hour I arrived and within 5 minutes her ring was returned to her! Linda was so relieved to have her ring back on her finger where it had been for the past 43 years.
Thank you Linda, for entrusting me to find your ring.

Property Markers Found – Little River SC

  • from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

One of my neighbors, Linda, asked me if I could possibly find 3 property markers on her daughter’s property in a different neighborhood development. She said she wanted to install a small shed next to the house but wanted to ensure she was within her property boundaries. I agreed to go out the next day and see what I could do. Luckily, Linda gave me a property plat map showing the distance between the markers. She said one of the rear markers was sticking up above the ground and I should be able to find it. Shortly after I arrived, I found the rear marker which was no more than 2 ft from the rear corner of the house.  I measured off the 47 ft to the front marker. There was nothing else to go by on the map plat, like the location of the house. So, I had the distance from the back marker but didn’t know the direction of the property line. I tried using my Fisher’s Gold Bug but there were 2 water meters, within 6 inches of each other and each one was installed inside a metal box buried in the ground. Needless to say, both my detector and pin pointer were absolutely useless. So after a good hour and a half of using my digging knife to probe under the grass I finally found the marker. The county had put the water meter boxes on each side of the marker with one box less than 2 inches from the marker rod.  When I first hit the rod with the knife, I thought I was hitting the metal box. One marker down, 2 to go. I went back to the back marker and measured off the 73.9 ft across the back of the house.  Again, I didn’t know where the property line went, but at no point was it more than a foot off the back of the house. So this measurement ended up right in the middle of the power and the cable boxes and the wires that went with them on both sides of where the marker should be. I still couldn’t use the detector or the pin pointer and had to use the knife to probe. I had to be a lot more careful because I didn’t want to stab or cut a wire, especially the power wire. I made a joke asking Linda if she knew CPR just in case, she replied “No.” After about another hour, I called it a day and told Linda I’d be back.

A couple of days later I went back determined to find the 3rd marker without cutting Linda’s electricity or cable off and me getting electrocuted. I remeasured the distance and after about 30 minutes I found the marker rod within an inch from the power box. The 4th marker is somewhere under a huge bush about 8 ft in diameter. Linda has wanted to cut the bush down for a while so now she has a reason and will call me when it’s gone.

While I was there on the second trip, a neighbor, Delores came over and asked me if I’d mind finding one of her property markers. A different neighbor was having an issue with her about an area that needed to be cleaned in which he insisted was on her property. She said he was so adamant about it that he was going to the HOA. It took me about 5 minutes, after measuring, to find her marker. Needless to say, her neighbor will be very disappointed. While I was talking with Delores, she said that she was one of the first homeowners in the development 31 years ago. She said when the builders built the houses, they built 7 houses per acre, which explains why no one had a back or side yards.

Meredith contacted me regarding an engagement ring she lost the night before at the Griffith Park Haunted Hayride. She had been there with her fiancé when after the ride was over she stood up to get off, and her loose fitting engagement ring slid off of her finger, and was lost somewhere in the hay. She and her fiancé, along with some of the staff stayed until 3 AM searching for her ring with no luck. We arranged a time to meet there, and I was on my way.

When I arrived Meredith and her fiancé Mehrdod had emptied the hay from the area of the loss from the trailer onto a tarp, and spread it out, so I began my search there. I went over the hay very carefully, but there was no ring there. I then went into the trailer to search the remaining hay but was unable to find it there. There were gaps in the floor of the trailer that a ring could easily fall through, so I got under the trailer and searched; nothing. I then repeated the whole search again to make sure nothing was missed, and again no ring. I asked if this was the area where she disembarked, and she said no it was another area. We went to the place where she stood to get off of the ride, and I began to search there. She and her fiancé were doing something in another part of this spot when I got a great signal, put the pin pointer in, and found her ring. I walked over with her ring hidden in my hand, and asked an inquiring question, to which she walked over to Mehrdod to discuss it with him. It was at that time I held up my hand with her ring, and asked, “Are we looking for this?” Meredith got very emotional at that point with joy, and later said that that was the best “jump scare” she had ever had. She then told me that they were getting married in 12 days; WOW! What a pleasure it is to see that kind of joy restored in a person’s life! What a great day!

It was pretty late one night when Tim contacted me. He had lost his ring at a beach club in their volley ball court, and after about 1 1/2 hours of searching was unable to find it. He wanted to know if I would be willing to go back the next day and do a search, but I told him I would do the search this night if he would send me the information showing me exactly where to look, because time is the real enemy of a successful search. He agreed, and after the information came I was on my way.

All the parking was shut down for the night so the only place I could park was about 2 miles away at the pier. For situations such as this I bring a folding bike with me. I unfolded my bike, strapped my detector and scoop on my back, and rode the bike path to the search area. I was able to find the area quickly, and began my search. It took just a couple of minutes, and I had Tim’s ring in my hand. I let him know it was found, and we arranged to meet the next day for the return. He was very happy that it was found, and happy that I was willing to go to do the search late the night before, to which I exclaimed that it was my pleasure to do so!

I received a call from Saba about her lost wedding ring. She had been at a surf camp earlier in the day, and put her rings into a bag so they would not get lost. When they were ready to leave the bag was lifted, and the rings fell into the sand and disappeared. She and her friends looked and were able to find her engagement ring, but not the wedding band. I let her know that I could come immediately, but she said she might buy a detector also in order to search herself. I did try to discourage that action, because most of the time it just discourages the people I want to help when they try to use equipment they are not used to.

When I got to the beach Saba and her friends met me and showed me where the group had been, and where they had found the other ring. I geared up to do the search, and out came the detector she had purchased. They did try, but to no avail. I searched for about 15 minutes in a tight grid with them working right in front of me the whole way. Right behind them I received a great signal in an area that was searched by their detector just minutes before. I dug, and in my scoop was Saba’s ring. Needless to say she was very happy to have it back!

Ryan was at the beach with his wife, and they lost their house key, which made it impossible to get into the house without calling a locksmith. He called and asked if I could help, and I let him know that I would be right over to do a search for him.

I got to the beach, and Ryan met me and took me to the spot that they had been earlier. He showed me where they had been sitting, and I could see where they had unsuccessfully searched themselves. It took all but about 2 minutes to find the key for him, and have him on his way to be able to enter their house. Ryan was certainly pleased at the quickness of the find.
