Lost Diamond & Gold Wedding Ring at White Plains Beach…FOUND!!!

from Oahu (Hawaii, United States)


This ring find began when I got a call Friday evening from Tracy who lives in Kailua. Tracy works for NOAA Hawaiian Monk Seal Rescue and was currently involved with a rescue at White Plains Beach. Her team was in the process of removing a fish hook from the throat of a Hawaiian Monk Seal when Tracy found her wedding ring getting tangled in the process. She remove the ring and placed it in the back pocket of her shorts and continued with the assistance on the monk seal. The team decided the monk seal would require sedation and in patient care so they transported the monk seal to their sanctuary for surgery. With the monk seal safely in transport Tracy went to retrieve her ring from her back pocket and it was gone. She and her team looked around the beach but it was no where to be found. The lifeguards at White Plains gave Tracy my number and we decided to meet the next morning for the hunt. An accident on the freeway made me about an hour late but Tracy patiently waited. When I arrived Tracy took me down to the spot on the beach from the moment she placed the ring in her short’s pocket. There was quite a bit of beach to search and the area was fairly trashy so I had to work through the chatter. After searching the first area with no luck Tracy showed me the path she took to the next area she was in. Nearly halfway to that spot along the path I got a great signal and one scoop down I retrieved the target. Looking in the scoop and pulling out the ring I showed Tracy and said, “Nah! This can’t be your ring.” She looked over in utter amazement and said, “Yes! That’s it!” A hug of relief and Tracy called her husband to give him the good news. Tracy was so thankful and said the knot she had in her stomach instantly went away. Aloha to Tracy! BTW the Hawaiian Monk Seal had the fish hook successfully removed and was returned to the wild that morning. Mahalo to the Team for their dedication and hard work keeping these beautiful creatures healthy!

Continuing my search I received a good hit, dig and saw the ring they in the dirt. He was very happy to have the ring returned to him.

Lost wedding ring found in time for 50 year anniversary 

from Manassas (Virginia, United States)
Contact: 1-703-283-6096

I can breathe again. This being our 50th wedding anniversary year all things related to our years together are precious to us. Having lost my ring while mowing the grass seemed like such a simple thing that should be easy to remedy with a quick search. That quick search ran into 3 hours with at least 8 friends and neighbors helping and plenty of rakes and blowers with no luck. We hand checked every bag of leaves and grass twice and had many eyes look over every inch of the area where it came off – nothing.

A friend had used Mark in the past. He rearranged his schedule, so he could get to us the same day we called and was able to find the ring within 30 minutes – buried sideways into the soft ground. I can breathe again. Mark was so pleasant to work with and so efficient – I just can’t say enough. Highly recommend him. I’d also recommend you call early in your search it will eliminate a lot of worry and upset .

A repeat customer loses his ring again…and recovers it again!

Lost ring found in Campbell CaliforniaRecently I got a call. “Do you hunt for lost rings with your daughter? You round my ring for me a few years ago…I lost it again.”

Way back in 2010, Vince lost his wedding ring in a park. My daughter and I found it for him. It was one of our first recoveries for TheRingFinders, so we remember it well. Click here to read that story.

This time, Vince was playing a ball game with his three sons on the trampoline in their back yard. While he was bouncing up and down, he reached down for the ball and gave it a hard throw. To his dismay, he watched his ring fly off his finger. They searched for hours, but couldn’t find it.

I made two trips over to Vince’s house. We searched his yard, under the trampoline, and his neighbor’s yard (across the fence to the left of the photo below. But no ring. There was only one possibility left: The ring had flown backwards, over the fence behind his head, into a different neighbor’s yard. That neighbor wasn’t home, but Vince said he would contact him as soon as possible.

The next day, Vince sent me an email with a photo of his ring. It had been sitting on top of the grass in that neighbor’s yard. This time Vince is going to get the ring resized!

 

 

Lost Wedding Ring Found in San Jose

Lost wedding ring found in San JoseHere in the San Francisco Bay area, we all go through a routine in November: clean your gutters and prepare for rain, because the next few months are likely to get wet. Eddie cleaned his gutters on Friday, scooping out leaves and debris from each section, then moving the ladder and doing it again. He was almost done when he noticed that his wedding ring was missing. This happens a lot: your hand gets cold and wet, and the ring slips right off your hand.

Eddie searched  for a couple of hours but couldn’t find the ring. He knew he was wearing it when he started the job, so he bought a metal detector and tried using that. Unfortunately, with the stress of losing your wedding ring, it can be pretty hard to learn how to use a metal detector! So he called TheRingFinders.

I made it over to Eddie’s house on Sunday morning. He showed me everywhere he had worked on the gutters, and was very confident that the ring had been on his finger when he started. So I started searching. The only thing that slowed me down was the hedges and plants: they were pretty thick along one side of the house. We even thought we got a signal from the top of a thick hedge where Eddie had thrown a pile of leaves, but that turned out to be a dead end.

Eddie and his wife Margaret gave up hope after a couple of hours, but I kept hunting. There was one section of planter bed that we had skipped because it required searching on my hands and knees with a small, handheld metal detector called a pinpointer. It only took a couple of minutes in that bed before the pinpointer started beeping like mad. There, against the concrete and covered by mulch, was the ring.

Everybody went away happy that morning!

FIRST FIND IN THE SNOW, WINTER 2017

from Kelowna (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-250-707-0618

After shopping in West Kelowna, Leanne and John parked their vehicle on the street and took their groceries indoors. A short while later John realized he had lost his key set somewhere in the snow. Leanne recruited all the kids in the street to help find the keys, with no luck after two hours, then she called me for assistance and I responded immediately. The snow had been shoveled from the street and their driveway, so I started the search at their vehicle, then worked my way along the snow on the side of the driveway. Success the keys were found four inches deep in the driveway snow.

Lost Gold Wedding Band at Ala Moana Beach Park…FOUND!!!

from Oahu (Hawaii, United States)


This ring find began when I got a call from Jono who was on his honeymoon from Brisbane, Australia. While applying suntan lotion to his leg his ring fell off into the sand and disappeared. After searching he gave up and went back to his hotel. They called my home where my wife Wendy gave them my cell number. I told Jono I’d leave early from work to search as I didn’t want another detectorist to score their ring. We met in the parking lot and walked down to where Jono’s lovely wife was sitting in the sand near where the ring came off. It started to drizzle a bit so I cranked up the Excalibur and started my grid search. First target after 20 seconds was Jono’s Gold Wedding Band. Fast & Easy! Aloha to Jono!
