Lost Ring FOUND, Fort Stevens Oregon

  • from Seaside (Oregon, United States)

Saturday June 19 2pm received a text from Alex stating his wife has lost her ring in the sand near the shipwreck at Fort Stevens. Knowing that this is one of the only beaches here in Oregon that is illegal to medal detect. So I stopped by the ranger station to ask for permission to use my medal detector for the sole purpose of looking for a lost ring. I was told as long as I stay in the area of where the ring. and that after I find the ring I must not use my Medal detector anymore.

I had just woke you when I seen the text from alex. I work night so no I am not lazy. (Well I am kind of lazy sometimes). I text back and told Alex I would be there in about 30 minutes. I get ready and go. After the ranger station I proceeded to the beach where Alex told me he would be waiting. Sure enough Alex was waiting and waving his arms as he probably knew who I was due to the medal detector in hand. When I get to Alex we started talking about where about and how the ring was dropped. looking over the area I was thinking “This will be easy” It was a area narrowed down to a area of about 10’x10′. Then I turned on my Minelabs Equinox 600 and do the usual ground balance and pick beach 2 mode. All I hear is the 600 going crazy no matter where I placed it on the area. Looking at the sand what I noticed was that the sand was mostly black. So hoping I would get a solid stronger sound if I passed over the ring I started my search in 3′ foot swing. 5 minutes go by and I hit a strong signal. Im thinking yes this has to be it I start sweeping sand away from where I pin pointed the object and BAM!! A flattened penny like the ones crank the lever and it flattens a penny and put whatever tourist attraction you at. With alex looking on in obvious excitement when I started to dig. Only to see the look of disappointment. He says that was my sons in a sad tone. So I hand it to him and told Alex to give it back to his son. After about 2 hours of sweeping the area back and forth to and fro I had only one other hit strong enough to differentiate from all the cackling of my new enemy mr. black sand. Turned out to be a nail. Alex stated he had to leave and go back to where he was from. I told him I would continue to search and stay in touch whether I found it or not he reluctantly left as I continue to search the area.

Within the time I was searching I received another call for a lost ring. I told that person I had to work and would meet him first thing in the morning after I get off work. After looking for Alex’s wife wedding band another hour with no luck I had to leave to get ready for my 12 hour shift. I text Alex and told him I did not find the ring but I would be back the next day to continue to look.

The following morning After working all night in my hospital I go to the other guy that text me the previous evening. That is my next story and I don’t want to ruin that plot. After getting home I decided to get some very much needed sleep to recharge. When I woke up maybe 2 hours later I couldn’t get Alex’s look of disappointment out of my head so I grab my sand scoop and decided I was going to go give it another go. So I head back to the place I had searched the night before. Getting there and looking down I was reminded of all the distorted sounds wailing from my 600 into my headphones. determined not to let the black sand win I took to my sand scoop and started from what I thought was the most likely area and started scooping and sifting through the heartless black sand. Every few scoops sweeping with the 600 to maybe get that sweet sound of something solid. with the wind picking up and sand hitting me in the face it felt like I was getting sand blasted. For 2 1/2 hours of endless scooping and sweeping I get a weak but different sound. As I try to pin point it down I narrow in to what I feel is close to the spot. first scoop I hear a duhl rattle in the scoop with excitement in my stomach I look in the scoop to see two peaces of plastic. bummed about it I tell myself at least it wasn’t medal. I take another scoop nothing but a stick, third scoop empty! As I go for another scoop I see a slight shine. Could it be? Please let this be it. I grab the sand and shiny object I feel something in my hand. It is cold and round. I look in my hand a YESSSS!!! there it is a beautiful little wedding band with rows of diamonds. After dancing a little jig I grab my stuff with the ring safely in my pocket checking ever two steps to make sure the ring was still there. I make it to my truck. taking out the ring again to make sure I wasn’t dreaming due to sleep depravation. Yup its real.

When I get home I text Alex and ask him if his wife had a small finger because it barely went to the first joint on my little finger. He text me back and asked if I had any luck. So I took a picture of the ring and asked if “this look familiar?”. I had just sent the text and almost immediately he texts back with a “YES HOLY CRAP”. Alex was so thankful and told me that his wife was crying, she was so happy and relieved. Alex also told me that his 5 year old son said he was going to name his first child after me! that cracked me up.

All in all it turned out to be a great day and I can’t wait till It is on the finger of Alex’s wife!!

Cheers!! Gabe

Lost wedding ring set in Seaside Park NJ Found by: Matt St.Germain

  • from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Recovery #4 for 2021
Today I was referred to Anna by Fellow Ringfinders Ed Cropski and Dennis Burlingame. After speaking with her I made my way to Seaside Park to meet her and her Fiancée’ along with their friend. At some point she took off her rings and placed them on the arm of the beach chair and forgot to put them back on. It wasn’t until 2hrs after leaving the beach she realized they were gone so they went back to try and find them with no luck. Once I arrived and spoke to them a bit I began my search. Within about 5 mins I found all three of them! They were very happy and relieved since they just started their vacation. Another great ending!

14k ROSE GOLD WEDDING BAND LOST IN ROADSIDE DITCH In SUNDRIGE, ONTARIO

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Nolan was working in Sunridge, Ontario staking out a utility vault in a ditch at the side of a roadway. He was brushing away his pants with wet hands when he noticed out of the corner of his eye his wedding band fly off.

Nolan’s 14 karat wedding band was custom designed by his Wife with a centre ruby in between two amethyst gemstones to match her engagement ring.

We agreed to meet this weekend very early morning as the Ontario Highway 400 northbound cottage traffic can be crazy.

With a strict grid search using my Minelab Equinox 800 metal detector and small stock coil I was able to locate Nolan’s wedding band in 2 1/2 minutes!

Check out the video;

A very happy young couple and another donation grateful received came into the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!! Nolan received a tax receipt for his donation amount! #payingitforward!

This adventure started back in February of 2021.  At that time I had helped our local KIRO morning news talk show anchor locate her lost wedding rings. Out of this exciting recovery effort a radio interview was published showcasing the amazing services of TheRingFinders.com

KIRO News Story:

This piece aired around Valentine’s Day 2021 and grabbed the attention of many people in need of lost item recovery support. One of those that reached out to me was a mother named Janice. She told me that her daughter had been tossing snow balls in their back yard, had lost her wedding ring and they were franticly searching all over when she heard the radio interview. In our initial correspondence I instructed her family to carefully check all gloves and clothing and the surrounding area but to be reassured I was on my way to do a search. My schedule was set to come out quickly there after however before I showed up I got the good news. Janice reported that her daughter had located her wedding ring inside one of the glove’s fingers. I was happy to hear the good news, shared some smiles over the phone and in closing reminded them to keep me in mind anyone else ever needs some lost item recovery help to reach out to me.

Fast forward to May 2021, I received a phone call from Janice again. As the call came across my phone I scratched my head as her name seemed very familiar. She quickly explained her daughters past situation then proceeded to tell me her son just had a recent incident in their same back yard. She told me that he had a bit of a stressful moment and threw an item across the back yard. In doing so his large chunky wedding band launched off his finger at the same time.  They had searched all over with no success and asked if I could pay a visit to look for his ring. Of course I was happy to take the call and meet up with them soon after. 

When I arrived her son, Tim, explained he had tossed a bottle across the yard and his ring flew off. I reassured them that we all have our moments but not to worry that his ring was some place in the yard and being that this was a recent incident we had a great opportunity in finding his ring. He describe his ring as a chunky black wedding band with flat sides like a hex nut. 

After searching the yard with my medal detectors and visually searching several hiding places with a bright flashlight in hand I eventually made my way back to my starting point. This is where I located his ring no more than maybe a few feet from where he had made his initial toss. His big chunky tungsten carbide wedding band was found laying obscured by some thick grass just waiting to be discovered by my medal detector.

Tim and his family were happy to see the ring recovered and back on his finger. All was well once again with smiles and appreciation for Tim’s recovered wedding ring.

Watch my video to see first hand the recovery of Tim’s launched wedding ring as I go full circle throughout the yard to find it back where I started the search.

Gold Cartier Love Ring Lost in the Sand of Malibu Beach…Found and Joyfully Returned.

I was enjoying a good sound sleep when my phone rang at 5:30 AM. It was Robyn. She had lost her gold Cartier ring while taking pictures at about 10:00 PM the night before near the water at the beach. She reached down to wash some sand from her hands when in a moment, the ring that was a little loose fitting came off, and disappeared in the sand and water. Robyn had not been able to sleep well the night before, found my information on The Ring Finders site, and called immediately, just as I ask. I let her know that I had to get some nourishment, wake up a bit, and I would be on my way. She said she would meet me there. Always, the sooner the search happens the more apt you are to have a successful recovery.

I got to the beach a little before Robyn, and began searching the area she showed me by a Google Earth shot she sent to me. I did not find anything, the sand I covered was free from any type of metal. I was ready to enter the water to look when Robyn came with her husband David. We discussed the loss, and they showed me that I might have been looking in the wrong area by about 30 feet. I moved over, and began a grid working back to the original search area. Working my way up the slope I finally got a signal, and my hopes rose, as I am certain they did for Robyn, I dug, and up came a piece of aluminum which turned out to be a bit disheartening for the 3 of us. I continued working towards the original search area, when I received my second signal down in the moist wet sand. I dug, and I could see a small piece of iron come up. I picked it up and went over the hole again with the coil, and received another signal, I scooped again, dumped the sand, and kicked it across the beach when there on top was a nice gold ring. I looked at Robyn and David, and gave them a thumbs up. They immediately came over, and David picked up the ring in disbelief, both of them thinking it was lost forever. We as ring finders know that time is the enemy of a good recovery, and Robyn made the right choice by calling me immediately, not caring what time it was. I was so happy to get this ring back to them. Their smiles tell it all!

Eugene contacted me about his ring he had lost the day before in the sand at the beach. He got hold of me early in the morning, so I was thinking there was a chance the machines had not gone over the whole beach. He was not going to be able to meet me there, so he sent me a good group of photos showing where he and his family had been; everything helps. I let him know I would head out as soon as I had something to eat.

When I arrived at the beach, and looked out over the sand, my heart sank. I could see that the tractors had already gone through, and the machines had cleaned the beach. I took some pictures of the carnage, and sent them to Eugene explaining how it was unlikely that the ring would still be there, but that because I had made the drive, I would still make the search. I used his photos and maps to coordinate my position for the search, and then began what I really thought would be a futile exercise. I made two passes, got a good signal, dug, and to my surprise, there was a nice shiny ring in my scoop. I immediately took a picture, and sent it to Eugene asking if he was Irish, because he had an Irishman’s luck this day. We had to wait a week before I could get it back to him, and when I did, it was a pleasure, as we had a great time in fellowship.

I was on the freeway when I received a call from Ian. Ian was at the beach when his ring was lost in the sand. This was a ring that he purchased while on a great trip with a bunch of his friends, and reminded him of the great memories, so it meant a lot to him. He had thrown a football to his brother when his ring came off, and disappeared. They searched the area for about an hour with no luck, and I was already on my way.

I got to the beach, and found them quickly. we went over what happened. the area wasn’t large, and I could see where they had been searching. He showed me where he had been standing when he threw the ball, and had placed his flip flops there as a marker. They had searched out from there, but I began at the flip flops. I received an immediate signal, dug and had Ian’s ring in the scoop. Apparently when he threw the ball, the motion of his hand put the ring at his feet, the last place he thought it would be. Glad to have made his day!

Got a call from Denis after he lost his cell phone while playing soccer with his family on the beach. they were running around, when his phone came out of his pocket, and disappeared in the sand. I left as soon as we got off of the phone, in order to do a search as soon as possible.

When I got there they were easy to find, and we went over the loss, and the possible areas to look in. I began in the most likely area. I made a few passes with no luck. His sister pointed out another area, and some people that were there were kind enough to move their belonging to enable me to search that area as well. A few more passes, and then strong signal. I carefully scooped, and brought up the phone. When I showed them the phone they were very excited to have it back, and I was glad to have made Denis’ day.
