Gold wedding band lost in Florida, Ft. Myers tall grass – Found!

from Marco Island (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-239-500-7464

Received a call from a gentleman in Ft. Myers (12/8/2018) who reported having recently lost his gold wedding band while washing his dogs in the garden.  The soapy water had allowed the ring to slip off his finger.  For those of you unfamiliar with Florida grass, its “thick”, very thick.  I arrived to find a small 6′ – 8′ circular enclosure that had been staked off to mark the location, limit traffic, and prevent mowing, etc.  A quick search of this area with the Minelab CTX3030 running a 17″ coil revealed nothing, at which point the search area was expanded.  Within seconds, the audible signal of gold rang true.  With the assistance of a pin-pointer, the ring finally became visible having already worked its way through the thatch all the way to the dirt.  Well, pictures speak volumes and are often better than a thousand words, so let these and the smiles evidence the relief and happiness within…Happy Holiday and Merry Christmas to you all!

If you’ve lost something metal, I’ll find it – call Mark (239)500-RING.

White Gold Engagement Ring Recovered in Carrboro, N.C. on 12/5/2018

from Hillsborough (North Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-919-539-5048

I recovered and returned this beautiful white gold engagement ring on 12/5/2018 for a nice young lady who had lost it in a yard last February. She explained she had tried several times to look for it over the past months with no luck. After speaking with her about the ring I agreed to meet her there and try to find it for her. When I got there I started my search using my Electroscope long range locators to narrow down the search of the yard and find the strongest hot spot signals. I then got out my detector to start my search in the strongest signal area I felt my Electroscope was hitting on. After about 15 minutes of searching I found the ring in the area of interest my Electroscope locked onto. I was very happy to locate this beautiful ring for such a nice lady. Its always a good day when I can help someone recover what they lost.

Levi at Lake Superior 8-1-2018

from Hayward (Wisconsin, United States)
Contact: 1-715-558-6007

I received a call to find a lost ring on August 18, 2018. I located this ring using an Electroscope by Thomas long range detector and a Tesoro Tiger Shark metal detector.

“While getting out of a kayak on Lake Superior, we were buzzed by a finishing boat that created some choppy water. I stuck my hand in the lake for balance, and when I pulled it out, my wedding ring was gone. I couldn’t believe it! We looked for an hour before a storm came up and forced us to quit. I decided I probably wasn’t the first person to lose a ring, and some Googling led me to The Ring Finders. I decided to give it a shot, even though I was basically resigned to the thought that my ring was lost forever. I reached out to Gary and he was able to make the trip up to Duluth the very next day. After arriving at the beach, he messaged me to say he might have located something. I must say, I was not convinced at that point. A while later, he sent a picture of a ring. My ring! I’m so amazed and grateful that he was able to locate something as small as my wedding ring in Lake Superior. What a great gift on the week of our anniversary!

I will certainly be taking my ring off when I paddle or put my arm in the water in the future!

Thanks for braving the cold water and locating my ring Gary! I hope you keep putting your amazing detecting skills to good use!”

Lake Owen Ring Found on 8-5-18

from Hayward (Wisconsin, United States)
Contact: 1-715-558-6007

On 8-5-2018, I received a call to locate a lost ring at Lake Owen. I used my Electroscope by Thomas long distance detector to initially locate the ring. I brought my buddy Mike to fish the ring out of the water.

“Thank you Gary and Mike for the fast and friendly service! And most of all, thank you for finding my wedding ring of almost 19 years. I had lost the ring on my 2018 annual family  vacation while swimming in Lake Owen. Gary and Mike came out on a Sunday and found my ring within 5 minutes. It was a huge relief to know my ring was found and returned to its rightful place on my finger 🙂 Thanks again!Dan and Kellie Miller, Madison”

I received a call from Marissa regarding a Ring that was lost in a man made lake during a wedding the day before.
Uh-Oh! After a few questions & concerns we decided the best time to perform a search was 7:30am the next morning.She was able to get permission while I signed some insurance wavers needed because this specific location was a privately owned Lakeside Wedding estate at a remote area of Fallbrook Ca.

Upon arriving to the scene of the lost ring, I met Marissa and the Owner who had lent his precious heirloom Platinum/Gold band for the Wedding ceremony.They showed me where it was last seen falling into the abyssal lake along the edge amongst a solid boulder retaining wall. Fortunately I brought a tape measure & the depth was only chest to shoulder deep so I geared up my equipment then down into the murky mucky water I went seeking into fish poop and clam shells…!
Along with a first chilling morning in San Diego shakingly cold,,The biggest obstacle I had on this type of search is the area where the ring had flown off too had contained many large boulders from the edge of the water retreating out nearly 4 feet.

I began searching and was able too clear the targets in this short 6’X6’ zone with the first machine I used,A Whites Dual field waterproof Metal Detector.I did find 1 Quarter,2 dimes along with a bit of trash but no ring! So I switched Detectors with another pulse induction machine that is NOT hard wired & I Previously modified it for diving along with a small coil to get between nooks and crannies for these few calls.

“I do detect ambiguity in this section of the act” This search is still active⚠️…
Though, I may fail from giving up!

I quickly began the second grid search while hearing multiple signals of Non ferrous Metals in between and around the boulders using the tip of my 6 inch coil?! I then began scooping and scooping in Zero visibility water while dumping the piles out with help from the owner of the ring. After being certain I was chasing my tale on all these many potential targets lodged between the boulders, I decided to check the piles of black muck I scooped up and dumped up above..The first pile I swung over I could hear a conductive non ferrous metal when I unveiled it to be only just a penny. The second pile was the sound of a holy nickel….But it was only,,,,, Actually…..

I couldn’t help but cheer and smile with them. This kind of excitement is thrilling plus the story behind this lost Heirloom ring will Live forever & ever again.

What I’ve learned on many types of calls has kept me ahead in better preparation for providing the best equipment and know how on How to find your lost ring.

The Ring Finders Metal Detector Service helped find & return a Lost Gold ring at Blacks beach In La Jolla San Diego. Open Now; Call or text 760 889 2751

I received a text from Satya who was vacationing in San Diego but from Atlanta Georgia the day before when all of a sudden,,his Gold wedding ring fell off his hand disappearing into the Ocean at knee deep water! Uh oh!

Mother Nature can be a beast,Keep in mind that Gold weighs 19.3% more than water and will sink ⬇️ fast! The sooner we are called,The better the chance is of recovering it!

So I arranged for the best time to search which is at low tide later that day then we hiked down the steep staircase along the retreating cliff.

After many ring detective questions down the mountain to better help this search, I did feel confident in retrieving this lost ring cause he knew the general area where the ring flew off at. He also had used GPS to mark the spot plus took random scenic photos throughout that day.

I began scanning the first possible area when Satya later walked up saying he’s almost positive it was lost much further south near the trail head. So I began another methodical grid search pattern this time from north to south around 50’ swinging when after finding only just 1 nickel,I get a another similar (Beep) on my Garrett Metal Detector with indications of a nickel or possibly a Gold ring?? So I took 3 scoops which was roughly 12-14” down then magically his Gold wedding band appeared in my hand. What a relief it is when I get called to help with success.

Warning ⚠️ Renting or buying a metal detector can be risky. The sand in California is heavily mineralized & loaded with magnetite,Felspar,Iron Quartz and Hot rocks. It takes over 1,000 hours roughly to fully learn the functionality of most detector machines.

If you lose your ring,,Who ya gonna Call? Call or text for a FASTER Recovery

Ring found and returned — Matlacha

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

Story as told by Steve:

I went fishing over the weekend and lost my wedding ring in somewhat of a freak accident. I was stung by a wasp reaching into a bucket. When I pulled my hand out abruptly, my ring went flying off my hand into the water of Matlacha FL. As I was out before sunrise, I did no see where the ring landed exactly.

I spent the remainder of that day diving and searching for the ring on the 4-5 foot grass flat that I had lost it in. With no luck, I marked the spot on the GPS on my boat and headed in. When I returned home, my wife had found Craig and his wife online through a quick search in Google. I immediately contacted Craig and he agreed to come out and search for the ring the following day after work (2 days after I had lost the ring).

I picked Craig and his wife up at the local boat ramp on my boat and headed into Matlacha Pass. The water was calm with about a 5mph west wind. Having quite the storm the evening before, I was skeptical that we would even have a chance at finding the ring with the current and wind pushing the water around. When we arrived at the grass flat where I had lost the ring, I anchored directly center of my GPS mark as best I could and Craig jumped in the water. I kid you not, less than 5 minutes later he pulled the ring out of the chest deep water. It had embedded itself in the mud and he was able to quickly locate it with his metal detector. Stunned, and in awe I couldn’t believe what I had just witnessed.

Craig and his wife were both very down to Earth, and great people to chat with. They treasure hunt as a hobby and really enjoy helping people locate their lost items. I cannot thank them both enough for finding my wedding ring. My only regret was that I quit recording Craig searching for the ring too soon. Another minute or so and I would have had him on camera finding the ring!

Thank you both again for everything!

Lost Wedding Band Colchester CT… Found!

from Stonington (Connecticut, United States)
Contact: 1-252-775-1307

Taking care of some yard work a gentleman realized his USMC ring and wedding band were both missing. After a scour of the yard, the family was able to locate one of the lost rings in the grass. In an effort to find the remaining lost ring, they borrowed a metal detector from a local hobbyist. After no luck with their search due to the electrical interference from the power lines above their yard, the family came across my profile on The Ring Finders. Only a few minutes after arriving, I came across the lost wedding band hiding deep in the grass. Another lost ring reunited with its owner!

“11 days ago Rich Smith lost his wedding band in our front yard. We looked and looked, I had someone in town come over, I borrowed a metal detector (thanks Mike), and we were starting to lose hope. But lucky for Rich I don’t ever give up.

I came across Keith Wille on the internet, and he came over yesterday. He was able to locate the ring literally in 10 mins. If you’ve ever lost anything, and think it’s gone forever- its not! He’s your guy to find it. We are forever grateful, and this is why you don’t ever give up! Thanks Keith!!
