iPhone 13 lost after massive snowstorm in Mississauga, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Zaib was out with her Brother after a massive snow storm moved through the Ontario region recently. Mississauga was hit hard dropping 30-45cms in the region.

There was a little after shoveling horseplay going on and Zaib had her phone in the open sweatpants pocket. After return inside, she realized her iPhone 13 was missing!

They immediately went back outside to check around with no luck. 3’ to 6’ snowbanks it could be anywhere.

Zaib’s Mother luckily had taken video, which they reviewed and spotted her cell phone in the pocket but not after the horseplay!

Zaib rented a metal detector which turned out to be a pipe detection unit of some sort which they were unsuccessful.

After 2 days of searching they called me back to help out. After going over most of the area, I moved back to where Zaid fell into the snow and her Brother trying to lift her out. We then reviewed the video and 5 minutes later I heard “the tone”…. Then the set up surprise “I hit my shin” and “did you look under the gap over there?” as I winked to Zaib’s Sister!!

Here’s the video of this cell phone recovery;

November 2021 Martina called asking for help. She explained that she was in her friends car sitting in the front passenger seat. She had just put hand sanitizer on and her engagement ring slipped out of her grasp. After stopping the car in her driveway the girls were very cautious searching absolutely every place they could however they were unable to locate her engagement ring. This engagement ring came from her fiancés mother and Thanksgiving was just days away. Martina could not bear the thought of hang to tell her future mother-in-law the sad news.

Desperate and frantic to find a solution after searching the car several times with no success lead her to a Google search that landed her at TheRingFinders.com She put her local zip code in and found my listing. After reading my profile page she was convinced enough to give me a call seeking some professional help. I reassured her that I have experience and special tools for this exact type of search and that I would do all I could to find the ring if its still there to be found. I also reassured her I’d be able to search her front yard if the ring didn’t show up in the car.

We met at her friends home where I was greeted with a very clean car.  Never assuming anything I had to ask her if the car was this clean during the time of the loss or if it had been picked up at all. She assured me            the car was in the same condition since the loss. As experienced finders we have learned to ask a lot of investigative questions to draw as many details as possible. If there had been other bags or garbage in the car this could leading to other potential hiding spots as to where a lost ring could get transported out of its initial location. I as happy to hear on the search that car was as clean as the day of the loss. This drove some confidence that the ring might sill be in the vehicle. Keeping a positive frame of mind always helps with any search. After searching under the passenger seat with my video endoscope and bright LED flashlight there was one hot spot that had to be checked. The HVAC vent under the seat. These are typically like a plastic duct system designed to direct heating and cooling towards the back seat passengers. Rings bing heavy in nature will often make their way to the lowest parts and sometimes fall inside these duct tubes. From there is unfortunately a slippery duct system with smooth metal rings against a plastic duct system.  The longer they are in a vehicle the deeper they may go as every brake action can cause the ring to move further and further out of reach. This is why time is your enemy if you have lost a ring especially in your vehicle! Fortunately we have some pretty creative tools and experience in recovery of rings lost in vehicles. It’s not at all recommended to take your car to a mechanic for a lost ring. We have examples of people having seats pulled from a vehicles, large labor charges and still no rings recovered. Remember a mechanics aren’t focused on lost ring recovery and are typically working as fast as possible to get each job accomplished. An auto mechanic shop is not the best option for a lost item recovery search. Being a mechanic myself and having all the tools to remove seats from vehicles I have found easier and better ways of inspection and item recovery reducing seat removal. 

What the video to see my process in action returning now only a cherished engagement ring but a big smile to Martina’s face. She was very relieved and now ready to visit her family for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Two Lost Diamond Wedding Rings Bainbridge Island WA

Watch the SeattleRingHunter recover two lost wedding rings lost while carving pumpkins.

November 2021 Mikala called me shortly after Halloween asking fro some professional help. She explained to me that her whole family have been on the search for her missing wedding rings and they could not find them. She went into detail telling me that the family and her toddler were up on the second level of their home carving pumpkins. During this activity she had taken off three rings from her hand and placed them on top of her sons highchair tray. Well after the pumpkin carving and clean up she went looking for her rings and they were all missing. They searched the area they had been carving and tore apart the highchair and no rings were to be found.

A bit after the incident her husband happened to eyeball one of the three rings a sterling silver ring laying at the bottom of their balcony steps. This lead them to think that possibly their toddler must have seen the shiny rings on the tray table and somehow got ahold of them. They have big dogs and their son has been known to throw rocks off the balcony for them to chase after. This gave them reason to believe their son may have tossed mommies rings for the dog as well. This lead to more searching high and low outside of the home but the wedding rings never came into focus.

Mikala told me they didn’t have any experience using a metal detector and once she found TheRingFinders online she soon rather just call a professional to come search for her wedding set.  I told her that it sounds like a great challenge and I be honored to drop by and perform a search.

The day of the search was not unlike another winter day in the Pacific North West full of wind and rain. In full rain gear I gathered my tools and was off to another lost wedding ring adventure. 

 

Watch the video to see as we bring back not one but two smiles to Mikala’s face. This search took quite a bit of effort but was worth every bit of it to have recovered her lost wedding set of four years.

Watch the SeattleRingHunter return a lost childhood memory back to her cherished owner Miss Allen

Like share and subscribe… 

October 2021 Allen reached out to me asking for help in recovering her lost sterling silver keep sake ring she received from her grandmother when she was very young. This ring yet simple in design holds a lost of memories and would mean a lot if she could get it back. She explained that a few days prior she had got up early, went down to a bakery for some local treats and then went over to the public dock. She sat down on the dock with her breakfast and prepared to enjoy a library book. Being that the baked goods were sticky she took several rings off of her fingers and placed them in her lap thinking that was not a good idea but proceeded in doing so. As she enjoyed her morning treats and reading her book the weather turned on her with our typical Pacific North West rain flurry. As she jumped up to move out of the rain she remembered her rings in her lap as she looked down and watched them fall to the dock around her feet. She sadly watched the ring she cherished the most do a few bounces and to her dismay on the last bounce it landed into the marina water below.

After a quick search online she found TheRingFinders.com where she found my offer of assistance for lost item recovery.

Watch the video to see as we bring a smile back to Allen’s face as her cherished ring is reunited with her once again.

Young newlywed lost his wedding band cleaning snow off car Brampton, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

I received a text from a manager of a recreation complex that he was cleaning the snow off his car knocked his hand on something. Next thing he noticed his 2 month old cobalt wedding ring was missing!

I new right away that it was a colleague at my work place! I messaged him back if he was a COB employee 😂 after that exchanged he called me and we had a bit of a laugh over it!

I met him bright and early the next day. Unfortunately, the area still had snow and ice but the worse was that the area was rebar encased concrete parking pad/walking area. I had my work cut out for me. Gave it 4 1/2 hours, I lowered my sensitivity to 2 but only had my 15” coil with me. I called it quits and decided to go back the following day on my lunch hours.

Well, 4 minutes into my 2nd attempt with my small coil and decided to check the snow piles / iced areas that were still present. I had a solid 9/10!! As I kicked the snow away, out popped the iced up shinny cobalt wedding band!!! WHAHOOOO!!

Now to surprise Antony!!!

As I was heading back into the building to surprise Antony… he walked out to check on the status. I pretended that an emergency call came in for a street light pole down. Then I pulled out his beautiful shinny cobalt wedding band!! His reaction was priceless!! Antony was so grateful to receive his 2 month old wedding band back. He was dreading telling his telling his Wife!

Check out my YouTube video for this recovery;

Thank you Antony for your donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation as I don’t take the reward for finding the lost item! Instead, I have the clients pay-it-forward with a donation! He receives a tax receipt.

I will be riding a snowmobile in honour of his dear Friend Rachel who passed away from breast cancer far too young!

September 2021 I received a call from Robert the owner operator of Boat Snake Yacht Maintenance. He explains his line of work is performing yacht maintenance to include every thing from wash downs to full vessel detailing. While he was recently serving one of his clients boats they took a wake surging the vessel and it knocked the gunnel ladder off the boat. Unfortunately it did not land on the marina deck but took a plunge and went straight to the bottom of the lake. He told me he had been searching on line to find an exact replacement but was having no success in finding what he needed. That is when he decided to seek out a diver for hire. He called one of the local marine guys and for what ever reason they provided a referral to call the SeattleRingHunter. 

Having experience in Lake Union I gladly agreed to help Rob. We set time to meet and the mission wast set. The morning of the recovery Rob was able to accommodate his schedule to meet me and show me first hand where the ladder had fallen into the lake. Having a first hand account identifying the drop zone made for a straight forward recovery plan.  After executing the recovery I was happy to hand the gunnel ladder over to him with smiles all around. We were both happy to have retrieved his clients ladder for the best all around solution. I applaud Rob the level of customer service he provided to his cline. It’s nice to see a high level of care offered to those he services. If you are in the need for some yacht maintenance be sure to reach out to Robert for a quick chat and tell him the SeattleRingHunter said to say hi.

September 2021 DJ and his wife Kim were enjoying a day on Ohop Lake doing some kayaking. Kim suggested to her husband to take all of his valuables off for safe keeping so he did and casually placed his wedding ring in his t-shirt pocket not thinking twice about it. It was a hot day so when he returned to the dock he took off his shirt off and in doing so he immediately head a few “tink” “think” sounds looked down and watched his gold wedding band of twenty-four hears fall though the slats of the dock into the lake below. In his disappointment as they went to the patio for a bite to eat he started Googling for “Under water ring recovery near you”. The search landed him on TheRingFinders.com directory listing. Within a minute he was able to locate my listing allowing him to reach out for an experienced underwater lost ring recovery specialist.

When he reached out to me I was on holiday in Hawaii but I gladly took his call and listened to his situation. After hearing the details of a lost wedding band under residential dock I reassured him that his ring wasn’t going anywhere and that as soon as I got back into town and cleared up a few previous searches he’d be scheduled as soon as possible.

That schedule did come and we were still in our warm season making for a wonderful day on the lake. Even though this was a shallow water recovery it had some additional points to work around. The lake was still very silty with a lot of particulate in the water and his ring was under a dock. Even with these additional safety concerns a proper dive plan was made taking care for all safety precautions for a successful outcome. 

Watch the video for the exciting conclusion of a lost gold wedding band of twenty-four years under a dock.

September 2021 John was searching the internet for metal detector rentals and became concerned how successful he would be having not used one before. With a little more online searching he ran across a video from the TheRingFinders YouTube page where Chris Turner had recovered a diamond solitaire in the water. So, John decided to see what this was about. He went to TheRingFinders.com and found my list for the local area. He sent a txt asking four some assistance in searching for his lost wedding band. The next morning we had a quick discussion and the search was set for later that day.

He informed me that he had take his watch and ring off so he would not get any tan lines. He tossed them into the side pocket of his beach chair that only had a velcro flap. After reading a book and pickup to leave he forgot to put his ring back on his finger. After walking down the beach about a hundred yards he realizes his ring was missing. He remembered there was a man with a metal detector earlier that day on the beach but he was no where to be found. After a quick visual search John left the beach thinking he would need to find a way to search for his lost wedding band.

Lost platinum wedding band in snow in Toronto, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

I received a phone call from David in downtown Toronto. His Wife Sonya was removing their 2 year old toddler from a stroller. She brushed off the stroller and thought she felt her platinum wedding band fly off into the snow.

After David and Sonya searched for an hour or so then David reached out to me to see if I could help. I advised there were two other metal detectorists registered with “The Ring Finders” directory in Toronto which were much closer than I. I provided some search tips and advised if they weren’t available I could pop down after work the following day as I had a visitor. My visitor was called into work and left immediately. I then called David back to make myself available if the other Ring Finders were not available as I know the misery it would cause and probably a sleepless night ahead for both of them. They took me up on my offer and I left immediately.

I was happy that the crazy Toronto QEW traffic was light and that I had no issues! Toronto traffic can be insane at the best of time non-stop bumper to bumper!

I arrived an hour later and proceeded to the backyard. I could see the backyard was entirely concrete under the snow fully knowing rebar and old metal bits would be and issue. Here I was thinking another ‘quickie’………NOT!!

After 10-15 minutes with the big coil and putting my pin pointer through a workout… I changed out my coil to the small 10” x 5” CoilTek Coil and turned down the sensitivity …. I then re-gridded the area and decided to go towards the pathway into the backyard and BOOM A SOLID 12 on the Equinox and tone was perfect! Even thought David’s platinum wedding band was the same it rang up a 15/16 on my machine!

Please check my link to the video, like and subscribe to my YouTube channel @Pink Power Ally Treasure Hunter / Detectorist

link here;

First I surprised David…. then David went along with me to ask Sonya “another question” bringing her back outside and of course she was happily surprised!

David and Sonya were so thankful for my help and I was grateful for their immediate generous donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! I’m sure if they called one of the other two RingFinders this precious sentimental wedding band would have definitely been recovered either way!!

Thank you David & Sonya!
