Contact: 1-616-262-5149

I was called last week with a plea for help in finding a wedding band that was lost one and a half yrs ago.   When i arrived Saterday 11/21 Terri showed me the area her husband Rich had lost the ring while carrying brush to a burn pile.  She also informed me that two other detectorist had been there with no luck finding the ring.  I started in the wooded area and worked my way to the burn pile all the time thinking that was where it would be.   After 20 minutes of moving partial burnt brush i started swinging my ATPro over the dirt and ash.   First hit was a melted 22 bullet.  The 2nd hit was 3 inches down and there was the ring.  A little discolored from the heat but in good condition otherwise.   When i handed the ring to Terri she broke out in tears of joy and disbelief.   All in all a happy ending To a year and a half oif not losing hope.   Chuck R  TRF        Sorry no pictures.   Computer says limit size exceded on the pics.

Shawn SGT Sherrill – Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Call ASAP  Anytime 24/7   918-313-2202

I got a call from Dashawn today about his lost cell phone on the side of the road, off an exit. I had to hear this story first hand. He proceeded to tell me, while on his motorcycle, his phone was in his left inside pocket at the time. As he exited off the highway the between his speed and the wind it managed to somehow fly out!!! It went to his right side mind you….. He said, “he had find me follow me” but when he went to find his phone with it, his lost phone died. He was able to connect via bluetooth from his helmet before it died too. So we were able to get an approximate location range of where the phone should be laying.

I agreed to meet him at the location. After about 30 mins and about 30-40 feet, TO THE RIGHT, from where he had exited and lost his phone, His phone was found. He was so happy, excited and very grateful to have the old phone back in his hands!

Lost Gold Ring Found In Warren Michigan

Widow’s Gold

Got a call from Patti who said she lost a ring doing the final yard cleanup when the snow started to come down this morning. She didn’t say what kind of ring it was or where it may be. Texting that I had arrived ahead of schedule I got no return text. I did a visual and noticed the front yard was very small and the back contained many metal yard ornaments and quite a few bags of leaves. I knocked on the door with no answer so I figured the best place to start would be the front yard and that it would be best to start before the weather got worse. The sound of crunchy, crusty snow sounded beneath each step and as it scraped under my coil I received many junk metal signals. Dialing up the discrimination silenced the chatter. Completing the left half of the yard revealed nothing. Starting the search on the right half of the yard under a very aromatic spruce tree I worked carefully not to miss any ground. Exiting the canopy I got a very nice signal of an object at 0 depth. Scraping my pin pointer thru the snow it vibrated at the same time this beautiful custom design gold ring came into view! I was confused as the ring resembled more of a man’s band. Still no response from her I took a couple of pics. As I started up the wheelchair ramp she appeared and I was just about to hold the ring up for her to see when she said thru the door she’d be with me in about 5 minutes. She didn’t know that I had already found a ring and when she did come out I ran towards her saying there’s no need to walk further down the slippery ramp and presented the ring to her! I asked if this was the ring and she said yes! Inquiring about the ring she said it was her late husband’s and she would wear it often and when performing the chores that he once did. She was very happy that the ring was found and mentioned that she really didn’t know where it came off and having it back enables her to still connect with him on many different levels for many more years to come.

Late Father’s Ring FOUND And Returned To Son In Wilsonville Alabama

from Pinson (Alabama, United States)
Contact: 1-205-283-7292

I was contacted on Friday afternoon by Mary Stevens. Her father had lost his late father’s wedding ring the prior night at the family farm, and she asked me if I could help find it? 

On Saturday morning I met Tom Stevens at the family farm.  He explained to me the importance and sentimental value of the ring given to him by his brother after his father’s passing, just 1 week prior.  Tom showed me two areas he had been prior to realizing he had lost the ring.  First, was a section of land near the farmhouse that included a gravel road and 2 grassy areas.  Second, was a 10 acre hay field he had bush hoged. 

I searched the first area near the farmhouse, but unfortunately without success.  Prior to going to the second area, Tom kindly got us lunch, and stated, “Searching the 10 acres will be like hunting for a needle in a hay stack.”  When we arrived at the hayfield, Tom recalled that he had taken a photo with his iPhone while standing in the hayfield –the one and only time he exited the tractor.  I reviewed the photo’s GPS details, used the lights from houses on the horizon in the image to align my direction, and was able to determine an area to hunt within the middle of the field.  So, I began swinging my detector.  Five minutes turned into ten, and ten into fifteen.  Then my detector made the tone and ID I so hoped to hear & see!  I kneeled down to pinpoint the signal nestled within the fresh-cut hay.  And there, I uncovered the golden ring of Tom’s late father.  I yelled, “I found it!”  Needless to say there were happy tears shed and calls made to loved ones that Tom had been reunited with his father’s ring. 

I appreciate the times I have been able to reunite people with their lost treasures, and I look forward to many more success stories.  If you lose something dear to you, give me a call

Lost Gold Ring w/Opal and Diamonds Found In Dexter Michigan

from Detroit (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-313-683-3082

Good Grief!

Lauren and her husband tied the knot last month. Enjoying the beautiful fall colors during an outside photo session her ring fell off. The ring was a very sentimental one that her late father gave her mom when Lauren was born, and now was being passed on to Lauren. There were multiple locations at the facility that they walked visiting the guests. Some terrain was cut grass and some was thick grass. She and mom were devastated and thought it may not be possible to find it. On site I set up my MXT and began a grid search. I got some similar signals to where I thought the ring would be on the meter, but the depth reading revealed these targets were well below the surface. Closing in on the area that covered the area in question I got a nice mellow signal within an inch or so deep and about 1 foot from the edge of the cut grass my pin pointer buzzed. Prying the thick grass apart revealed this very stunning gold ring with a fiery opal and diamonds twinkling in the sun! I was holding it up and with their backs turned to me they turned to see what was happening. They both came running and as she held the ring emotions were high. During the excitement an employee came out to present a nice bottle of champagne from their reception! A celebration was underway along with texting mom to share the great news! All was happy that closure was made and that dad’s legacy can continue for years to come!

Metal Detecting Lost Engagement Ring…Found in Burke, Virginia Backyard

Michelle’s Elegant Blue Sapphire Engagement Ring Shining Above Ground Once More!

A Very Happy and Relieved Bride-To-Be Holding Her Most Precious Jewel!

BRIAN RUDOLPH, LOST ITEM RECOVERY SPECIALIST (LAND, WATER, SAND, HOUSES & VEHICLES) WILL FIND YOUR LOST KEEPSAKE! CALL ASAP (301) 466-8644!

A young lady named Michelle called me in a state of desperation, asking for help in finding her platinum, 3/4 carat blue sapphire engagement ring. It had gone missing the day before and the bride-to-be was devastated in not knowing where to turn or what to do about the situation. After many calls were made to businesses where she may have lost her ring, Michelle googled “metal detector rentals” in the Burke Virginia area. The first listing was for THE RING FINDERS, an international metal detectorist directory. Her only mistake made in this whole story is that Michelle didn’t click and contact THE RING FINDERS first! Instead, she decided to select the next listing which advertised metal detectors for rent. It wasn’t until the young lady and her concerned father failed to recover the most sentimental piece of property in Michelle’s life that she finally returned to THE RING FINDER’S online website to locate a local metal detectorist near to her.

The moment that Michelle began to share her story with me, I recognized that she had the best attitude under the circumstances of what she was dealing with. Michelle and her fiancé Tim were greatly looking forward to tying the knot on May 15th of 2020, and the thought of not wearing her engagement ring on the most special day of their lives was just devastating (Note: Sadly, little did Michelle know that due to the Covid-19 pandemic which erupted just a week later, the couple would have to postpone their wedding to a future date). And yet, as upset as Michelle was, she maintained a certain positive mindset and was hopeful that her phone call to me would prove to be the wisest decision she could make since none of her other ideas brought back her sentimental keepsake. Calling her fiancé in Great Britain where Tim had been currently working at the time was one of the most difficult moments for Michelle when she shared the sad news that her ring had disappeared. As it got closer and closer to the “big day”, there were more details being checked off the enormous wedding to-do list and this was clearly a step in the wrong direction! The bride had looked forward to soon gazing at her beautiful gem as she would embrace her future spouse upon Tim’s arrival home from England in preparation for their spring wedding. That dream of wearing her engagement ring for Tim was now in jeopardy of ever happening.

THE BACKSTORY

Here are the details that Michelle shared with me about what she was doing prior to the disappearance of the ring. Michelle and her best friend Jenny spent the afternoon together. The bride drove over to her friend’s house and they first took Jenny’s car to the local Best Buy for some quick shopping. Next, they headed over to the shopping mall where they had lunch at Popeye’s restaurant and then stopped over at Sephora to try on some makeup samples for the wedding day. They finished their task and then walked to the other side of the parking lot where Jenny’s car was parked. Finally, they drove back to Michelle’s best friend’s house where they hung out in Jenny’s room and inside the kitchen area.

Up to this point the excited bride-to-be wasn’t consciously aware of whether or precious ring was still on her finger at that time or not. It wasn’t until a couple of hours later, after Michelle arrived back to her own neighborhood that she realized the ring was gone. Once she pulled into her driveway, she walked up the front path, entered the house and immediately placed the dog harness on her sweet canine named Penny. They proceeded to take a long walk down the street and back to her residence. Then, they went along the left side of the house towards the 2.5 acre back yard where she allowed Penny to play in her dog pen as she talked on the phone with a friend and then made a call to her fiancé Tim. Because the young lady was focused on her conversations with her husband-to-be on the phone, as well as with her girlfriend while walking Penny earlier that afternoon, her mind and eyes would not have been focused on whether or not her ring was still on her finger. After a while, the two continued their walk around the property to the front yard where Michelle took the dog to the end of the block, and then back to the house where they finally ended their long trek for the day. Once she brought Penny inside for her feeding time, she looked down at her hand and was shocked to discover that her beloved blue sapphire engagement ring was gone!

The distraught young lady immediately contacted Best Buy, Popeye’s, Sephora and the mall security to see if they could check their video footage to verify whether or not Michelle was wearing her engagement ring as she walked out of any of those stores. Out of all three retail places, Best Buy was the only one that was able to confirm that Michelle did in fact have the ring on her finger when she walked out to Jenny’s car! This helped a little bit by cutting out the electronics store, but there was a lot of territory that was left to be in question. Of course, nothing was turned in at the mall security office or at any of the places where the ladies stopped at inside the shopping mall.

The next thing that Michelle did was contact a local hardware store that advertised metal detector rentals online. She and her father took the Garrett Ace 150 and took turns swinging the machine all over their multiple acre estate, scanning a long side the road up and down the block and then back towards home again. While pulling up random pieces of iron and insignificant metal objects, Michelle felt so frustrated with herself that she just couldn’t remember when she had it on her hand last! After hours of searching, Michelle and her dad still didn’t give up and they continued to methodically cover the bride’s tracks from the front door, all around the front steps area, up and down the street, along the side of her house towards the backyard, walking in the direction of the dog pen and all across the lawn to the other side. They detected every spot where Michelle remembered walking so that they didn’t miss a section of that lawn. Finally, the father and daughter duo finished scanning the grass on the right side yard of the house and then covered the front as the search came to a conclusion. By the time they were done searching, complete exhaustion and disappointment set in. It was at this page in the story when I, Brian Rudolph, of THE RING FINDERS was contacted with the hope that I could finally bring resolution to this very troubling mystery!

THE SEARCH

The Night Search – Day 1

I arrived at Michelle’s Burke, Virginia neighborhood sometime around 6pm later the same day when she called me in the morning hours. Earlier on the phone, the bride-to-be shared that she still wanted to personally do some more metal detecting around the property before finally calling it quits. So we agreed that if she still had no luck, I would come out later that day and get a new search started. Frankly, it was a lot of ground to cover and there was no way of knowing whether the ring had even fallen off her finger near her home or someplace else. Knowing that the priceless jewel had already been slightly loose on Michelle’s hand and that there were so many possibilities as to where it could have ended up, I had to keep my mind focused and remain confident that I wasn’t wasting my efforts as I searched around her property, as well as detecting up and down the street. That always plays a “mind factor” when there are just so many loose ends to a mystery case.

Upon asking Michelle additional questions, her first thought was that she must have lost it somewhere in the yard. However, doubt set in because she began to think of all of the places that she had visited throughout the day (other than Best Buy) and realized that the ring could have come off anywhere since she didn’t remember the last time she saw it on her finger.

The other side of the coin was that because the weight of the platinum ring was quite recognizable, Michelle believed that she would have realized that the ring had been missing earlier when she was hanging out with Jenny. So, she had a feeling that the ring could have been lost along the front walkway, somewhere in the neighborhood along the street, or possibly lost in her yard. One thing was for sure, Michelle and her father felt that they had done a fine enough job of metal detecting all of these “hot spots”, yet there were no positive results to prove their claim.

Once I introduced myself to Michelle and her friend Jenny who was over at the house, as well, Michelle showed me around the property and got me oriented in terms of all of her movements from beginning to end. She even took me back to the laundry room where she fed her dog Penny when she first realized that the ring was missing. I checked her blue hoody sweatshirt pockets with my handheld metal detector, and then searched the foyer area of the house before starting to metal detect along her front steps and around the bushes. The most important thing that we did was to pray and ask the Lord for help in recovering Michelle’s most priceless possession. I told her that God loves marriage because he instituted the whole concept of marriage and the engagement ring acts as a symbol of commitment which God ordained from the beginning of time between man and woman.

Next, I metal detected a pile of dog poop bags near the garage just in case the ring ended up in one of them during a “pickup “. I continued my night search all along the side yard, moving slowly towards the backyard and around to the other side. I only had about 2.5 hours to look for the jewel so I did not do a consistent grid search, but rather a quick scan by zigzagging the metal detector with the hopes that I might hit the target as I moved quickly to cover as much territory as possible. There were various target signals that hit my detector but none of the metal appeared to be above ground.

I finished the quick scan around the perimeter of the house including the section of the yard where the dog pen fence had once been set in place and where Michelle had been hanging out with the dog the day before. Still nothing turned up. I then walked along the street all the way to the end of the block and then moved my way back around on the opposite side of the road and went all the way to the other end of the court. By the time I backtracked to the house, I had just enough time left to inspect Jenny’s car and then Michelle’s vehicle as soon as her parents arrived back home from the airport. Using a high lumens headlamp and my highly effective endoscope which can show me hidden details within cracks and crevices in vehicles and in houses, I concluded that Michelle’s ring never ended up in either vehicle. Still curious if I had missed anything, I quickly rechecked some of the side yard to the left of the house once more. Nothing turned up where the grass met the driveway and where it sloped down towards the tree line. It was at that point that I needed to turn my equipment off, pack my things up and say good night to Michelle.

Before leaving Michelle’s house, I summarized all of what I had accomplished that evening and I was quite encouraged that I covered quite a bit of ground even though I did not discover the ring. Michelle was equally positive and kept thanking me, expressing how much she appreciated my help. I gave her some homework assignments to take care of for the next three days before I would be able to return that coming Sunday to resume the search. I told her that I was hoping that she would find the ring before having to see me again. I also shared with the bride that I would continue to pray for the discovery of this “symbol of love” between her and Tim until I was scheduled to return three days later. Michelle agreed that she would take my advice and place flyers in everyone’s mailboxes in the neighborhood, as well as post an ad on Craigslist just in case somebody found the ring at the local mall. Though she would have to return the metal detector, Michelle would keep her eyes open and continue to scan both sides of the street to see if she might eyeball the ring. She would also check her yard again including the house living room which I did not inspect up to that point. Michelle would also check in with the mall security, Popeye’s and Sephora to see if anybody turned the ring in. Once we covered all of our bases, I left her place and encouraged her to stay strong and believe for a miracle.

The Day Search – Day 2

Three days after my initial search, I returned to Michelle’s place on a beautiful but very cold Sunday morning. I gave myself a search window of 3.5 hours of metal detecting around Michelle’s property. My goal was to grid as much territory as possible and this time I would swing the detector with very fine gridlines as opposed to the zigzag pattern that I did before due to my limitations on time the other night.

Though I had already searched the street, I thought it would be best for Michelle to take me on a walk towards the end of the court where the street dead ends in order for me to get an exact foot movement as to where she walked about with Penny four days earlier. We also prayed again and asked the Lord for help in recovering Michelle’s beautiful ring (calling on the Name of the Lord for wisdom and guidance is the most important detail in all of my searches).

When we returned from my orientation down the street, I asked Michelle to take me to the backyard and she once again walked me through some of her steps when she was walking the dog that afternoon of the disappearance of her ring. Everything checked out to be the same account as before but with one exception. When I asked her again if she had walked anywhere in the center of the backyard, she did mention that she had walked from the far back of the lawn over to the dog pen. This meant that she had in fact crossed into the center of the yard and walk towards the entrance of the dog’s pen gate to allow Penny to move about inside the fence line. I would remember this important piece of information later in my search that morning.

While Michelle relaxed in her house with her parents, I started metal detecting up and down the street, focusing on the exact areas where Michelle had guided me earlier. Everything checked out clear. Then, I returned back to her estate and began grid searching all along the side property heading in the direction of the backyard. Nothing checked out along the line of pine trees that separated Michelle’s place from her neighbor’s property. I kept moving my way towards the backyard all along the perimeter of where she had previously walked. It was at that point that I utilized that very important information that Michelle shared with me earlier when she mentioned that she cut across the middle of the yard over towards the dog pen. I continued metal detecting in that same direction.

It was extremely bitter cold outside and at some point the very thoughtful bride-to-be came out to check on me. She kindly offered an inviting cup of hot chocolate which I gratefully welcomed!

While the kettle was being heated up, so did my search as I moved closer and closer across the center of the multi-acre lawn towards the pen area (in the same direction of where Michelle and Penny walked to the pen’s entrance). Though I had previously covered the parameter of where the fence was set up initially on my last visit, I had not metal detected closer to the center of the backyard heading towards the dog pen’s gate from that center spot. This was definitely a small strip of new territory for me to investigate.

Just as I was approximately 10 feet or so to the left of where the dog pen gate entrance would have been set up, I hit a very promising target signal. Though I had already encountered multiple target signals that appeared to be quite shallow or on top of the ground, nothing turned up to be Michelle’s ring. This particular target signal had a certain bounce to it and a certain tone that was in the range of what I was looking for. I was quite excited as to the possibilities of what this piece of metal could turn out to be. I knelt down in the grass, took out my pinpointer (a handheld metal detector) and zeroed in on exactly where the target was hiding. Just as I started rummaging through some blades of grass to finally catch the stubborn little piece of metal, my eyes excitedly became fixated on a circular shaped object that was silver in appearance! Then, I saw the color blue at the very tip of this spectacular looking halo! I found it! I found Michelle’s lost ring! I was just as excited as I was surprised at the fact that I found it in such a short period of time in the location of where I was searching! I probably had been outside in the backyard for less than 30 minutes or so before bringing this difficult search to a close!

The ring could have fallen anywhere in the neighborhood or it could have ended up in somebody else’s pocket had the jewel not stayed on Michelle’s finger long enough to return back to the property after doing her afternoon errands! I could have been out there searching just about anywhere for the next several hours or even possibly days on end all to conclude that it was nowhere to be found! And yet I discovered the engagement ring before having to go through countless hours of detecting in the freezing cold! I was overwhelmed with gratitude unto the Lord for what I was able to recover for this concerned young lady! I couldn’t wait to reveal what I had found!

At some point soon after I found the ring, Michelle came out with the hot chocolate. It was absolutely delicious! In the moments that were to follow, the surprise that I revealed to the bride turned out to be even sweeter and more memorable than even that amazing cup of hot chocolate which Michelle had graciously made for me! Her reaction to what I recovered for her was completely off the charts! Her parents were also beyond blown away with excitement and were frankly in a state of awe as to what I was able to accomplish that morning! In the foyer of their lovely home, Michelle, her parents and I all celebrated together this fantastic return of their daughter’s most beautiful blue sapphire engagement ring! Tim was contacted soon after our party came to close and he was so very relieved that the ring was found! He also expressed his deep appreciation for my successful efforts and asked Michelle to convey his many words of thanks for recovering the priceless keepsake!

I was so proud to know that what no one else was able to find, I had discovered the beloved bridal betrothal piece and brought it back to Michelle’s finger that morning! Yes, now that it was successfully found, that special sentimental treasure would excitedly count the days when it would happily welcome its new counterpart…yes indeed, Michelle’s long awaited wedding band!

Engagement ring found in Lowell, Michigan

from Holland (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-616-808-9033

Gregg Larabel, my fellow ringfinder, got a call from Tina telling him that her daughter, Brianna, had lost her engagement ring a few weeks ago.  Brianna and her fiance live on a secluded 10 acre parcel in the beautiful west Michigan countryside.  Because varmints had been going after their chickens, Brianna carried a shotgun as she walked around the yard and driveway checking on them and their beef cattle.  But her ring was interfering with her hold on the shotgun, so she took it off and put it in the pocket of her hoodie sweatshirt.  As she put the shotgun away later she discovered the ring was missing from her pocket.  After a lot of fruitless searching they decided the ring must be out in the yard or driveway somewhere.  It was obviously a big area to search, but Tina gave us a map showing where Brianna walked after putting the ring in her pocket.  We started with the driveway, and after finishing that I started searching the steps up the hill to the front door.  At the top of the steps, just before the front door I got a good hit in the leaves next to the steps, and when I parted the leaves, there was her ring.  I had just called Gregg over to look at it when Tina came out the front door expecting we were about ready to give up.  We held the ring out for her and her eyes lit up.  Brianna, at work, answered the “found it!” text with “are you kidding me?”  Picture is of Tina with the ring.  Waiting for a picture of Brianna with her ring back on her finger.

10 MINUTES FROM HONEYMOON ISLAND

 

 

Last Friday I was enjoying some beach time with family including our daughter who was visiting from Texas. It had been several days since Tropical Storm Eta had passed and the beaches had unfortunately lost a lot of sand, making for some good detecting. I had the usual questions from people I passed nearby including “find anything today?” and “what’s the most interesting thing you have found?” As I walked out towards the jetty to see if my son had caught any fish, I noticed a lady who was sitting in the edge of the water. As I got closer, I thought I heard the lady talking to herself but then I realized that she was speaking to me. The lady, who later introduced herself as Vilma, asked me if I helped people search for lost jewelry on the beach. I told her of course about what I did as a Ring Finder and asked her what she had lost. Vilma sadly explained to me that about two months ago she was on this same beach with her family including her recently wedded son Oscar. Oscar lost his white gold wedding band while helping a another family with their umbrella after the wind suddenly kicked up. Vilma’s family had searched several times for the ring but had not used a metal detector or service. Vilma had promised Oscar that she would somehow find the ring and she had prayed for God’s help.

I asked Vilma to show me the area where the ring was lost and she led me to a location no more than 200 feet away but close to the current dune area and a beach access. Vilma was very certain that this was where Oscar lost his ring but significant beach erosion had occurred from the storm. I began sweeping a grid area maybe 20 feet wide and 100 or so feet from the dune line towards the water. The area was somewhat rocky due to the storm removing several feet of sand. I reached the water, turned around and was headed back towards the dune line when I happened to run into Chip, the person who assisted with my last ring search several days before with his Garrett. He wished me luck and continued to move north up the beach. I continued my sweep toward the dune line and within 15 feet or so of the dune, my Equinox 600 registered a 11-12 target about 4” down. I know from previous experience that 11-12 could be a pull tab and a 13 could be either a bottle cap or a nickel but I had found gold in this range so I dug into the somewhat rocky sand. Incredibly, I uncovered the ring, held it up to Vilma, and said “is this what you are looking for?” She stared at the ring for a moment and then let out a scream of joy that could be heard by everyone reasonably close. Vilma ran to me, hugged my neck and wouldn’t let go. So much for social distancing, lol!! After many “thank yous” to me and to God, Vilma left the beach trying to figure out the best way to surprise Oscar with his ring. Afterwards, I actually had to explain to several groups of people who I had already spoken to about what I do as a Ring Finder that finding Vilma’s ring was not a set up because there is no fee for my services, only an optional reward!! I am convinced that God used me to answer Vilma’s prayers that day. I love my retirement job!

 

 

 

 

Lost gold ring in grass, Winter Park, Fl….Found and Returned to owner!

Anne was having a very rough week and then she found theringfinders.com! With renewed hope she reached out to me and her rather sad story has a very happy ending. Here is the short version in Anne’s own words.

“I had lost my father’s ring a week ago while playing frisbee in my back yard with my dog on Monday, November 9th! I came home from work and it was drizzling a little and I wanted to give my girl some exercise and burn off some of her energy before the rain really set in. I was playing with her and the ring flew off. I think the rain and cooler weather loosened it on my finger and my grass is a nasty combination of St. Augustine, Dollar weed, Bahia and who knows what else. It feels like a spongy carpet.

It was my dad’s ring (he died last November 1st followed 8 months later by my mom on August 10th) and it isn’t fancy or worth a bunch of money but it is gold, has three diamonds (my dad use to refer to it as his “3 Amigos ring”) and means the world to me!

I spent, I can’t tell you how many hours (no joke, at least 30 hours in the last 7 days) on my hands and knees, in the dark with a flashlight, in the rain, with sweat running down my face, tears steaming up my glasses and the heat! I even bought a Bounty Hunter 2200 metal detector…and nothing. I had a friend help as well. I think I needed professional help (maybe in more ways than one…lol!)

I googled “HELP ME FIND MY LOST RING” and found Mike McInroe. I sent him an email which he responded to quickly. He was at my home within an hour and a half. Where it took me over 30 hours in a week, he found my ring within a half hour! I was sooooooo appreciative! I had been extremely upset by the loss. Thank you Mike! Sincerely, Anne-Marie”

Have you, or someone you know, lost something recently and need help to find it? Or maybe you have lost something years ago and have a good idea of the area where it was lost and you would like to have someone look for it.

Call, text or email me ASAP!

Smithtown Beach Lost Wedding Ring

from Suffolk County (New York, United States)
Contact: 1-516-526-4888

I received a phone call from Elizabeth saying that her husband ring was lost at a Smithtown Beach.  I asked if they were at the beach ,if So I would come right away.

When I got to the beach they showed me the area that they were sitting and where they had walked about.  Then he said that he when into the water and that it may have come off there. He stated that he was waist high and showed me where he was swimming. Since the water temperature was about 60 degrees he was in long.  I explained that if it was in the water I would have to come back as the tide had come in and the area that he was in was now about 5 foot deep.

I searched the land area that they were sitting in and the surrounding area.  No Luck,  I told them I would have to come back when the tide was low.

I came back Saturday late afternoon and the tide was almost tis lowest point. I started a search along the water line as far in as my detector would allow.  After a number of trips back and forth in the area that he told me was in I received a very strung signal in the gold range and using my beach scoop I found a ring.

Elizabeth was not at the beach when I found the ring,. I when back to my car and took a few photos of the ring and texted them to her.  I then called to say I had sent a message about the ring and to take a look.  When she did all I could hear were people in the background cheering.  I set up a meeting in order to return the ring. It was good for both them and myself to meet on my way Home. Two Happy Beach goers.
