**** Kelly call me to inquire if I could help her find a small white gold earring in the sand at a small cove in Laguna Beach, CA. She was sure that it had to be near where she and her girl friends had spent the day. 

She couldn’t meet me at the location until after her last class at school which would be the next day at 6pm. We discussed the location a little bit more and she sent me a photo . After recognizing the lifeguard tower in the back ground, I felt I would not need her to come to beach. 

The next morning I was at the West St. Beach in South Laguna. Kelly had told me that the earring was a small hoop type white gold item. So I took two metal detectors down the long set of steps . Immediately I spotted the landmarks. Also, I could see finger drag marks in the sand. 

Thought this would be a easy find. My first double grid over the zone with my multi frequency detector did not reveal the earring. I took a few minutes to set up my other detector which I could use at a higher frequency setting. “BOOM” .. a couple swings got me a decent signal. The white gold earring was found. It was open and possibly on edge ? Can’t really say why I missed it with my other detector, because it is also know for finding small nonferrous metals.

The most important fact is this very sentimental piece of jewelry was found and returned to Kelly later in the evening. A very happy grateful young lady.

Lost Mens Platinum Wedding Band On The Beach In Lewes, Delaware Found

  • from Lewes (Delaware, United States)
Contact:

On 06/16/2021, I was contacted by Joe in regards to his Platinum Wedding Band that he had lost on the beach at Cape Shores Development in Lewes, Delaware. Joe request my help in finding his lost ring. Upon contacting Joe at the beach he showed me two areas that he had been sitting when the ring was lost. I began a grid search of the first area and I was unable to locate the ring. Joe had chairs and an umbrella on the sand in the second area that I was to search so I requested that he move the items so that I could begin my search. While the chairs and umbrella were being moved I walked over to a corner of the area where I had decided that I would begin my search. Joe was still moving the items out of my way so I laid the coil of my detector on the sand at which time I heard a tone in my headset. I scooped up the sand from where I received the tone and low and behold there was Joes lost ring. I called out to Joe and told him that he did not need to remove anymore of his beach items because his ring had been found. The ring was then returned to its rightful owner.

Harvesting Equipment Guard found

  • from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)

Mid last week I got a phone call from a farmer friend 2 hours north west of Edmonton. Evan had lost a guard off his swather while swathing Canola. I decided to go have a look and see if we could find this piece of metal. I asked Evan if he had an idea where the guard might be. He told me he had it narrowed down to 3 swaths. Each swath was 1 mile long. Sounds like a challenge to me. Evan`s side by side Razor was running so we could use it. He drove and I held the metal detector out the side over a swath of Canola. Started raining but we stayed with it. We did about 1.25 miles and I got a signal about 45 minutes into the hunt. Evan stopped, backed up and I could see just the edge of it laying under the swath. We got it 🙂 and Evan was super happy. Was 3 – 4 feet long and no longer will cause problems for the combine. I enjoyed this hunt!
Alls well that ends well.

Janessa lost the keys to her apartment and mailbox while walking her retriever last evening.  She and her friends searched but no luck.  Her father found my number and she called to see if I could help.  We detected the path she had followed and the places where they had stopped to play, a fairly large area.  We searched for almost two hours, and were becoming pretty discouraged, when there they were.

Missing…Men’s White and Yellow Gold Wedding Band…Found in Lake Tuscaloosa, Alabama!

  • from Huntsville (Alabama, United States)

Christina McCree – Ring Finder for North Alabama and surrounding areas…call or text ASAP, anytime 24/7…610-504-6135

I received a phone call from Devin on Wednesday, September 8, 2021 stating that he lost his white and yellow gold wedding band the day prior.  He had taken the ring off and put it in the pocket of his swim trunks while applying sunscreen.  Devin forgot about it and went swimming in Lake Tuscaloosa with his kids.  He didn’t remember that the ring was in his pocket until after he was back in the lake house.  Unfortunately, the wedding band was no longer in the pocket.  Devin searched in the house and his path from the lake, but no ring.  My next day off from work was on Saturday, so we arranged for a search that day.  Lake Tuscaloosa is about a 2.5 hour drive one-way from me, but I definitely don’t mind traveling to help someone find their lost item.

On a very warm and beautiful September Saturday morning, my husband (Lindell), our nephew (Sean), and I headed on our way to Tuscaloosa, Alabama for the ring search.  We arrived just before noon and met up with Devin and his wife, Sarah.  I had Devin and Sarah show us exactly where Devin was in the lake and how far out he went.  Devin thought that the area he was in ranged from about 3-6 feet deep and was a fairly large area.  The water actually stayed shallow for a long way out.  Devin said that there was a sandbar feature where he went upside down under the water playing around trying to scare his kids.  We thought that this was the most likely spot that the wedding band fell out of his pocket.  I began my grid search there.

I had my Blu3 Nemo dive system and Minelab Equinox 800 metal detector with the 15 inch coil.  I made it out to the sandbar feature and began grid searching, slowly working my way in towards the shoreline.  It was only about 3-4 feet deep there.  Thankfully, there weren’t a lot of signals out there.  On about my fourth gridline, I received a shallow and loud 14 on the Nox.  I knew that this was more than likely Devin’s ring.  Diving down with the Nemo, I fanned away some sand and caught a glimpse of a ring.  There it was—Devin’s missing white and yellow gold wedding band!!!  What an amazing sight!

I surfaced and immediately yelled out the good news.  As I was making my way back to the shoreline, everyone began coming down from the lake house for the big reveal.  I presented Devin’s missing wedding band to Devin and Sarah.  Such joy, happiness, and relief!  It’s really such a blessing being able to help others.

A couple of important notes.  Devin and his family are actually from Louisiana.  They were staying at this lake house for safety while Hurricane Ida was making landfall near their home in Louisiana.  Devin and Sarah will be celebrating their 8-year wedding anniversary next month.  Their wedding rings were custom made with yellow gold from Sarah’s parent’s rings.  Their rings have an intertwined design on the outside of the band to symbolize how Devin and Sarah met.  Sentimental and irreplaceable!  I’m so happy that this wedding band will be going back with Devin and Sarah to Louisiana instead of being lost forever.  Its story now gets to continue on…

I give all glory to God and thank Him for another successful ring recovery.  I pray that I can continue helping others for many years to come.  Proud to be a member of The Ring Finders!

Mobile Metal Detecting Service .. Call Stan the Metal Detector Man .. 949-500-2136

*** Gene and his wife went to his daughter’s outdoor birthday party. In Brentwood which is a city in Los Angeles, CA. The party was a few blocks away from his house. After returning home that same evening his wife realized he very favorite and most sentimental diamond/ gold earring was missing. 

He thought that he might try renting a metal detector to find it on his own. Doing his research Gene came across TheRingFinders directory. He called me with a few questions about the service works. He told me that the earring had to be at his home, in the car or at the home where they spent most the evening on the lawn near the pool.

I briefed him on the experience I have recovering lost metallic items. From what he told me, there were several places I could use my metal detector and I have a couple other tools that enable me to search inside cars. I definitely could help eliminate areas that may hide a small  earring. 

We met that afternoon at his place. He asked if I would like to search the car first. I felt we should start where she had spent the most time. That would be the lawn area a quarter mile down the road. He had brought the matching earring so I could use it to set up my metal detector..The grass could be a great hiding place for a small gold diamond earring. The yard wasn’t very large so I began my search at the far end. 

Gene got a little nervous when he could hear my detector sound give a signal. I had to explain that this is why people get frustrated when they have never used a metal detector. He was sitting close to me when I got a surface pull tab signal. I called it and was able to show him how the ID numbers and the tone of the signal work. Shortly after that I got two different signals. I told him one was probably another pull tab but the other could be a small gold item. “ Boom” I checked the second signal and could see the diamonds and gold deep in the grass.

Normally I don’t call signals before I check them, because I’m usually wrong. Gene went ballistic bursting out with the words I hear often, “I DON’T BELIEVE IT”. He had to tell me that he never thought the earring could be found. That is something I also hear often. I believe you can’t find it if you don’t try!! I’ve seen miracles!!

  • from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Recovery #15 for 2021
I was contacted by Liz on behalf of her husband Pete. While he was at the beach he took his wedding ring off and placed it on his towel. When it came time to leave he forgot it was on the towel but then remembered the very moment he lifted the towel and shook the sand off it. I met up with him and he showed me where. Within 5 seconds of turning on the machine I found it! He was very happy to have it back! Another happy ending!
