Lake,Alcohol & the Ring Flies into the Lake Grapevine, Texas

  • from Dallas (Texas, United States)
Contact:

We got a call from a really guy named Jordan.  He let us know that the previous Saturday while on a family day at the lake.  Actually Jordan’s birthday.  A mistake that sometimes happens when alcohol is involved, tempers flaired and his sweetheart in a moment of regret took off her ring and just tossed it in the lake.  They searched for over an hour even though the water was only 2-4 ft deep.  We set a time to meet Jordan the next day at Lake Lewisville.  Jordan brought his wonderful 24 ft Pontoon boat,  he took on a short ride to the Island in the middle of the lake where he and his family liked to beach their pontoon and spend the day just floating in the lake.  Upon arrival I jumped in and began search asking Jordan where his sweetheart was sitting and what direction she threw the ring.  We always ask if the person who threw the ring is athletic or not because that can make difference how far the ring may have gone,  I made several passes and then Ellen my wife hopped in the water and began to search as well.  The both use Garrett ATPro’s and waterproof Garret Pro-Pointers.  Ellen wasn’t in the wate 5 minutes when she called my name, I looked and could tell from the look on her face she had found the beautiful ring.  I walked over and sure enough, the beautiful White Gold Diamond Ring sat beautifully in her scoop.  Jordan heard us talking and was shocked that Ellen had found the ring in less than 10 minutes.  After some congratulations and photos we had a wonderful boat ride back to the marina.

Another Great Find for the Dallas Ring Finders

 

Yellow Gold Bracelet with Charms Lost in the Ocean, Found and Returned Myrtle Beach SC

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

I received an early morning text message from Mary saying “I need help finding lost jewelry.” I tried calling her but didn’t receive an answer. So, I texted her saying “How can I help? Call me, it’s faster than texting. 843-655-5889. Jim” Mary called a short time later and said she had lost a gold bracelet with charms. She sent me a picture of the bracelet and where on the beach she lost it. Unfortunately, the resort her and her husband, Omar, were staying was in Myrtle Beach. She also stated they were getting ready to leave to go back home. I told her Myrtle Beach was TRF Matt Fry’s area and I’d give him a call and coordinate with him and that one of us would call her back. I called Matt on his cell, his work number and his wife’s phone and got no response. I called Mary back and told her I was on my way. Meanwhile I sent her a Google earth map with the resort and a line down the middle of the beach dividing north and south and asked her A or B side. She responded A, so I was on my way.

When I got there, I surprisingly found a parking spot and hit the beach. I started a perpendicular grid search on the north side of area A and worked south. Almost 2 hours into the search and shin deep in the ocean, I got a solid 6 on the Equinox 800. I wasn’t real sure what numbers I was looking for on the 800. I knew the thin gold bracelet wouldn’t show up, so I was hoping the small charms would ring up. I was as careful as possible trying to dig the target out of the sand. My second scoop I saw the bracelet hanging out of the packed sand in the scoop. I took a picture and sent it to Mary saying “BA BOOM,” then I called her. She was just pulling my text up and seemed very happy, and that’s when she shared that her mother had given her the bracelet. They were heading out of town but weren’t far enough that we couldn’t meet half way. When we met, Mary was extremely happy when I handed her bracelet back to her. Mary didn’t want her picture taken so I had Omar take a picture of me holding the bracelet.

Mary – thank you for trusting me to find your sentimental treasure.

Lost and found diamond engagement ring Cobourg beach Ontario

  • from Cobourg (Ontario, Canada)

Received a text from Kaitlin and Zach yesterday about having lost her diamond engagement ring at Cobourg beach this past Friday. After they were walking and enjoying the beach with their young child, she noticed that her ring was missing when they went back to their vehicle.  Zach even went and purchased a metal detector and detected the whole beach with no success. As it got dark, they finally had to stop looking and head back home, which is quite far from Cobourg. Luckily, she found me online. After getting as much information as possible, including a couple of Google earth pictures, I headed out to the beach. The major issue was that she could not pin point exactly where or when she lost the ring. Long story short, three hours into my gridding search, I found her beautiful ring. Ironically, it was found where Zach had already been over with his detector. In his defence, the quality of the detector he was using plus expertise in knowing what to listen for, and how to search an area, is not something that can be learned over night. It was a great pleasure to meet them and reunite them with her ring today. A very happy ending!

Lost Medic Alert Bracelet Found at Marina Beach Park Ventura

  • from Oxnard (California, United States)

I recently got out to look for a ring for a client at Marina Beach Park in Ventura after Hurricane Kay had blown through. I was hopeful that some sand had moved and I would be able to locate their ring. I got a target signal in the wash at the tide line and instead of a ring I scooped up a Medic Alert bracelet for an individual named Kellen with Diabetes. These bracelets are designed to talk for those who can’t when they are experiencing a potentially deadly medical episode. There was a name on the back so when I got home I decided to do some investigating to see if I could reunite it with it’s owner.

I began my search and I matched the name with both a Twitter and instagram account so I sent a DM to each and in 24 hours I got the response I had hoped for, I had found Kellen’s medic alert bracelet and I scheduled a time to meet up and return it to him. Jewelry is often purchased to display beauty and in this case it was as a life saving device and I was so glad to return it to Kellen. If you have lost an important item don’t hesitate to call or text me at 805-290-5009 anytime because the time to search for it is now.

Tiffany & Co platinum wedding band lost in DUBE Lake, Orrville, Seguin, Parry Sound, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Tim and Family were enjoying a peaceful summer vacation at a tranquil cottage on Dube Lake in beautiful Orrville, Seguin Falls in the District of Parry Sound, Ontario! Absolutely amazing area in Northern Ontario Muskoka’s cottage country!

Tim went in for a dip in the refreshing waters, pushed off the dock approximately 10’ to 14’ out, waved his hands and his Tiffany & Co platinum wedding band was not longer on his left ring finger.

With the help of a Google search, ‘The Ring Finders’ directory popped up and Tim was referred to my Ring Finders home page and blog recovery stories.
I had a lovely sunny fresh morning 3 hour drive to Ontario’s fabulous cottage country!

Met the family, geared up, coaxed the snapping turtle “Fred” to relocate, and Tim showed exactly what he doing when he lost his wedding band in the 6’ wide by 12’ length area.

Off I went into the very dark waters to start my underwater search with the Dive BLU3 Nomad battery operated hookah air system, my trusty Minelab Excalibur2 underwater metal detector and the Deteknix pin pointer.

Once I was approximately 10’ out I was 12’ depth and I heard the unmistakable tone of platinum on my detector. It was complete black visibility even to turn on my pin pointing. I had to move up to 6’ depth to see the on button and then proceeded back down to the target area to re-locate Tim’s wedding band.

Finally l, with the help of the pin pointer, I was able to here / feel the ring just tucked in behind a branch and popped back up to the surface to surprise Tim and Family!

It took roughly 7 minutes because of Tim’s accuracy of the area where he lost his wedding band! I love “quickies”!

See Sally Smile !!!

  • from Hilton Head Island (South Carolina, United States)

I received a call from Sally stating she just lost her ring (a ring handed down from her husband’s grandmother, no less…. YIKES) about an hour before and gave me excellent clues to where she lost it, within feet!!!! So, I was already planning on going out when the tide receded. The moon wasn’t out and the wind was blowing pretty good and the waves were crashing heavily, I started at the water edge but not in the dry sand, I gridded about 12 feet down as the tide receded with no luck and thought, it must have come off in the dry sand, so I went to where the wagon tracks (as described by Sally) and circled out from there, the all so familiar sound of a great target sounded off, as I scooped and sifted I could see the ring appear. A beautiful white gold solitaire diamond ring as described. It was a little late and knowing Sally had a little one, I waited till the next morning. Then I kind of tricked Sally the next morning by texting her and stating I needed help with the location, could she walk me out. We agreed to meet at 9am. When we met I asked Sally if she had a picture of the ring, she said somewhere in her phone as she began to look, I said,  Well wait here let’s take one now, as I handed Sally her ring, the realization on her face and then the emotion of having it back, after already accepting it could be lost forever and then the smile of knowing it wasn’t…………The moment all recoveries are about, that look of astonishment and pure happiness………..Vacation saved !!!!

Special thanks to Jim Wren N. Myrtle Beach for referring me. Somehow, Jim came up in the directory for Sally.

Michael Hill Diamond engagement ring lost at Wasaga Beach, Georgian Bay, Simcoe, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Nicole was spending a day at Wasaga Beach 3 with girlfriends in celebration of a special Friends birthday.

They packed up and returned to the parked car and noticed her Michael Hill diamond engagement ring was missing. Panic set in and she could not find her engagement ring!

I was summoned up to Wasaga Beach 3 to help Nicole. Spent hours on the beach grid searching the area she thought they had the two birthday tents set up. Had no luck but cleaned up the beach of its trash! And there was a ton of trash!

On a 2nd outing a few days later and alongside another detectorist that offered help, John L helped by gridding the water area in front of my beach search area to cover more ground.

A gentleman (beach regular) had noticed us searching and advised he saw the birthday party. He also stated the party area was further over to the west.

After advising Nicole she reviewed her photos and agreed the area was a bit more west. At the end of the day we also searched the pathway out to the start of the road. Absolutely no luck!

Well, spoke again to Nicole and decided to meet back at the beach for a 3rd and final attempt!
I remembered her stating when they were close to the car, the gals heard something drop. They looked down and saw a hairband. Therefore, I decided to work from the parked car area back to the beach pathway!!

Five minutes into the search and I had a solid double tone in my Minelab Equinox 800…. ON THE FREAKING ROADWAY under 1/4” of sand!!!!!
My coil had swept some of the sand away and I caught a glimpse of the bottom of the ring!!!
ABSOLUTELY CRAZY!!! We found her engagement ring on the Ontario Parks roadway into beach 3 parking lot!! I even started to cry!!!

Check out the video;

We were both numb with disbelief from finding her engagement ring on the roadway and I think Nicole was in a bit of shock too! NEVER GIVE UP even after one or two attempts and being stubborn not to give up!

Such an honour to help Nicole!!

Three Lost Gold Wedding Rings in Orchard Prairie Spokane WA ….FOUND!!!

  • from Spokane (Washington, United States)

Last week,Sue was sitting on her porch step talking to to her landscaper during the fading hours of daylight. As Sue was talking she noticed  the diamond on her wedding rings was flipped downward. She quickly flicked the rings with her thumb to adjust their position. As her thumb snapped forward her three rings went flying. Quickly exclaiming “I lost my rings” to the landscaper, the daylight faded to black. A search for the rings that night was useless. The next morning a search began and ended with no luck. So Sue reached out to her community.  The neighbors, her church, and the little four year old boy across the street were all praying for the ring to be found. The Minister from Sue’s church even came over to look. He saw an over grown bush right beside where Sue sat. Thinking the ring might be in there, he asked when she last cleaned out the leaves in the planter box? Little did he know that when he began to tend to the over grown mess he would remove the rings from its hiding place.  As he worked with his hands cutting and cleaning up the leaves and twigs he had picked up Sue’s rings. Now from there the minister took the five gallon bucket of trimmings and walked to the backyard . He placed the bucket under a covered carport and then left. So for a week that bucket sat there untouched. Sue was devastated and distraught.  She saw the rings come off and disappear.  How could she not see the rings in the grass she thought. Sue had the landscaper cut the grass really short and then used a shopvac to try and pull the rings from where she thought they were hidden in the grass. Now completely stumped Sue turned to the internet. Her daughter told her to buy a metal detector so Sue typed in ring metal detectors . Instead of finding a metal detector to buy she found The Ring Finders. I hadn’t begun my days work yet when Sue called me. We talked and I told her I would be right over. I heard Sue’s story and began my search. The whole front yard, the planter boxes, under the porch, in the juniper bushes and down the front walk was where I searched with no ring found. I knew the minister had cleaned up a bush, so I asked where he put the clippings. So Sue and I headed to the  backyard to the five gallon bucket. I thought for sure I would see her ring in that bucket. However I didn’t see her ring when I searched, not even in a trailer where more clippings had been tossed. Now I knew that a bagged lawn mower had been used on her lawn so as I walked  past Sue talking to her about the landscaper my eyes saw a small shape in the gravel. So I asked Sue what is that? And then again I asked what is that Sue? I circled the rings and then started jumping up and down as I saw the diamond. Sue’s rings had been found. Whether it fell out of the bottom of the bucket or an act of God placed the rings in the gravel. The rings were found. We hugged a bunch, celebrating all the answered prayers and Sue thanked God and me for finding the rings. See, the three rings Sue had lost were on her hand for 58 years. When her husband Gaylon passed away 10 years ago his ring was placed behind hers and soldered together.  So finding those three rings brought back the memories of her late husband and the feeling of their love for one another.
