Lost Gold Ring…FOUND by Good Samaritan and RETURNED to Rightful Owner!

from Huntsville (Alabama, United States)
Contact: 1-610-504-6135

A lot of us wonder if there are still good people left in this world.  I’m here to tell you that, yes there are!  I met one this morning…

I received a text message from a gentleman on January 3rd, 2021 for a lost ring.  He told me that on December 30th, 2020 he lost his 14K gold ring in the grass by the slides at Brahan Spring Park in Huntsville, Alabama.  He lives in Texas and was just visiting Huntsville for the holidays.  He asked what were the chances that his ring was still there.  I told him that it was still possible since grass can easily hide rings.  But since it was a public area, I needed to get out there ASAP and search.  I grabbed my gear and headed to the park.

Upon arrival at Brahan Spring Park, I sent a photo to confirm I was in the right location.  I immediately noticed that the grass was actually AstroTurf.  Unfortunately, there wasn’t much room for a ring to hide in this AstroTurf, because it was very worn down.  It had already been 4 days since the loss, but I remained positive and started my search.  There were areas around the slides where a ring could hide in some leaves.  I started looking there visually and with my Garrett Pro-Pointer AT.  No ring, so I decided to scan the AstroTurf with My Equinox 800 metal detector just in case the ring did happen to get pushed down or hidden in the seams.  Still no ring.

Across from the slides was more playground equipment with woodchips on the ground.  I decided to expand my grid over there in case his ring landed further than expected.  After a thorough search, still no ring.  I asked the gentleman if he had been anywhere else.  He said no, the grassy area was the only spot and he noticed his ring was missing when he left it.  We came to the conclusion that his ring must’ve been visually seen and picked up by another person.  He thanked me for my efforts.

When I got home from the search on January 3rd, I posted an ad in the Lost and Found section on Craigslist in hopes that it would be seen by the person that picked up the ring.  I also monitor the Lost and Found section on Craigslist for lost items that I may be able to help find.

A few days later, a Craigslist ad for a found gold ring was posted!  The ad stated that the gold ring was found on the AstroTurf near the slides.  They hoped to return the ring to its rightful owner.  I knew that this had to be the ring!  I contacted the poster, Luis, on January 9th and confirmed through a photo that this was indeed the gentleman’s lost 14K gold ring!  I’m so happy that he’ll be getting his ring back!  The gentleman had told me that he thought he would never see his ring again.  I immediately thanked the Lord for answering my prayers!

Luis lives in Hawaii and also happened to be visiting Huntsville for the holidays.  Wow, the journey this ring has taken is incredible!  The ring was lost and found in Huntsville, Alabama on December 30th, 2020.  The person that lost it lives in Texas.  The person that found it lives in Hawaii.  The ring is currently in Hawaii, but will soon be on its way back to the rightful owner in Texas.  Sorry if I confused anyone lol.

Good people still and will always exist.  So never give up hope!  I’ll try to add a photo of the owner with the ring when it gets back to him in Texas.  But for now, here’s a photo of me with a big thumbs up for The Ring Finders Directory!

If you or someone you know has lost a ring, jewelry, or other metal item, please contact a member of The Ring Finders.

LOST WEDDING BAND IN HACKBERRY , LA. – FOUND

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

John was from out of state, working to restore services to the Lake Charles area after the destruction of hurricane Laura. He was sweeping dried mud out of his truck seat when his white gold wedding band flew off his finger. He heard it hit some hurricane debris and before heading to parts unknown in the road ditch. He and a couple of fellow workers moved some of the trash and hand searched the area, No luck. He called Carrie and I the next day for help. Within 2 hours we were on site hunting. Since John had left his own metal detector back home, I lent him mine. After hunting for a few minutes he needed to head back to work and I started hunting. Within an hour, Carrie got a good signal in a thick clump of grass. Neither of us could see the source , so I had to cut and pull some blades of grass from the clump. We both got a visual at the same time. We messaged a picture of the ring to John and soon saw him drive up. Two people had checked that same clump the day before and had not seen the ring. Lots of smiles followed.

Thanks, John, for that generous reward.

 

 

Lost ring in the water, Winter Park, Fl…Found and Returned to Owner!

from Sanford (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-321-363-6029

Mike McInroe…Ring Finder Specialist…Call Anytime, ASAP…321-363-6029

Ashley and her fiance were enjoying a beautiful New Years day at the Meads Botanical Garden in Winter Park, Florida sitting on a concrete wall along a very picturesque stream. The sun filtered through the Cyprus trees and the breeze was cool and refreshing. The day and the setting were perfect for what Ashley’s fiance had in mind. After dating for nearly 9 years he thought it was about time he asked the “Big Question” and he had it all planned out. And while sitting on the wall along the edge of the stream with their feet hanging over the water, he reached into his pocket and pulled out the small box which contained a very special engagement ring. As he opened the box he was looking into Ashley’s eyes, hoping to catch her by surprise and all of a sudden he felt something bounce off of his leg and then he heard something fall into the water. Was it an acorn or something from above he thought? One look at the little box he was holding up to Ashley told him the horrible truth! Her engagement ring was not in it’s place and had somehow popped out when he opened it up. They were both dumbfounded and could not believe what had just happened and they desperately tried to figure out what to do next. Should they wade into the cold flowing stream and try to find it? Ashley was devastated and the thought occurred to her to call her father, Mr David, and ask him for advise. And wisely he told them not to try looking for it on their own for fear of pushing the ring further down into the sand and silt. Mr David promptly went on line to look for help and typed “How to find jewelry underwater” and that led him to theringfinders.com web site. He had his dear wife Mrs Debbie give me a call and we made plans to meet up the next morning at the Mead Garden entrance.

When planning for such a search I try and imagine what all I will need, weather it may be a wading search where I use a water proof metal detector and a long handled scoop along with a floating sifter or maybe I need to bring all my scuba gear including a mask and tank and a hose with weight belt and weights, etc. Sometimes a metal detector works well and other times I can only use a water proof pin pointer because of the underwater conditions like debris and thick aquatic vegetation.

The following morning we made our way down to the small stream and I was able to measure the depth and determine that I would need to suit up and set up my tank and hose. I was able to mark the wall to get an idea where to begin looking but I was not prepared for how cold the water turned out to be. Having lived in Florida for the past 30 years my blood has thinned out and this ol body likes to be warm. As I sunk down to the bottom and made my way along the wall I could not believe all the sticks and debris that had gathered in the exact area where I needed to search. I tried using my hand held Pulse Dive, 6 inch pin pointer but had trouble getting in and around all the sticks and branches. So I surfaced and changed to my Garrett Pro Pointer AT, which most detectorists refer to as the “Garrett Carrot” and that proved to be exactly what I needed. On each signal I would grab a handful of leaves and sand and debris and sift through it till I was left with the target. I found a few junk items and after 15 minutes of this grab and sift I grabbed my last handful and was a bit confused to see a small piece of white plastic sticking out between my fingers. As I shook away the silt I caught a glimpse of something round and shiney and low and behold there was Ashley’s brand new engagement ring with the little white tag still on it. You should have heard them all holler and yell when I came up out of the water holding that little beauty!

Lost something recently or back awhile ago and want my help? Call, text or email me ASAP….anytime!

Huntington Beach Volleyball Player Lost Sentimental Military ID Tag in Sand .. Called The Ring Finders Directory for Help

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

 

Mobile Metal Detecting Service .. Call Stan the Metal Detector Man .. member of TheRingFinders Directory   .. 949-500-2136

*** Leor had lost a military dog tag while playing volleyball at Huntington State Beach. It had belonged his father and he wears it everyday. It was very sentimental to him. Leor had noticed his broken chain before leaving the sand volleyball court. He and his friends search by hand without finding it.

Leor was driving home to San Diego when he called me. We discussed the circumstances of the loss which gave me hope that I could find the metal ID tag. There are about 20 volleyball courts in this area of the beach. He told me it had to be a court number 15. 

I was able to get to the beach soon after the call. It wasn’t necessary to have Leor at the site. When I arrived there were a group of 10 or 12 players practicing on that court and I didn’t want to ask them to let me search. When they finished I began to grid the court. Then I was informed they were not finished playing. I courteously came off the court. While waiting for another shot at the sandy court, I search to sideline areas around the boundaries. Eight feet outside the court on the opposite side where Leor had felt the loss occurred, I found the missing SS metal military ID tag. I was basically using up time waiting to get back to the search zone. It was definitely a surprise to me but we do know how many recoveries happen when we search outside the box.

Leor was more than excited when I called him with the good news. He arranged for his friend, Ben to pick up this ID tag. Ben did tell me how much this item means to Leor. This is what makes my day.

Two lost rings found in New Brighton, MN

from Twin Cities Metro (Minnesota, United States)
Contact: 1-763-670-5544

Jason Roberge, an experienced ring finder, received a call from Jamie who was in Minnesota for a work convention. She and some co-workers were outside participating in some team-building activities in a field near the meeting site. She had removed her precious rings before the event and placed them in a pocket. But, she later realized that the rings had slipped out of her pocket. Unfortunately, she had already flown back home and had no way of searching for herself.

Jamie contacted Jason, and he was happy to help look for the lost  rings. Most of the snow had melted from the day before, and Jason was able to find both lost rings rather quickly. The rings were shipped back to Jamie, and she was overly relieved and happy to have them back!

Wedding Ring Lost in Germantown, Maryland…Found in Apartment Complex Bush

from Washington (District of Columbia, United States)
Contact: 1-301-466-8644

Kyle’s 14 Karat White Gold Wedding Band Shines Bright Again!

Kyle and Shayna Proudly Show Off the Newly Discovered Wedding Band!

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

I received a call from a young lady named Shayna who learned about THE RING FINDERS and my services from another couple that needed help and found success in recovering their ring through my metal detecting efforts.

Shayna explained to me that her husband Kyle lost his wedding band a day earlier. He was outside on his first floor apartment complex balcony cleaning off cigarette ashes that had blown onto their property from the apartment above. The ashes went all over the couple’s son’s toys. Being a responsible tenant , Kyle cleaned up the mess and walked outside to discard all of the ashes. As Kyle flung the pile, his 14 karat white gold wedding band flew off his finger and landed somewhere in the very thick and dense bushes.

The frustrated fellow spent hours trying to find his lost keepsake. Eventually his efforts spilled over into the next day and he still couldn’t find the ring anywhere. Unfortunately, the bushes were so intensely dense and tight with a strong root system that no attempt to retrieve his ring proved to be successful. He tried over and over again but sadly all of his hard work led to no avail. Finally, Kyle’s wife Shayna gave me a call to seek help. After gathering all of the information regarding the lost ring, I scheduled a time to come out to the property later that evening.

Kyle met me outside by the bushes and he showed me exactly what happened when his wedding band flew off his finger. He wasn’t sure exactly where it ended up in the very large amount of landscaping to cover. When I thought that the bushes were going to be somewhat thick and tight, I had no idea how different these bushes turned out to be. They looked like some type of offshoot of a Juniper ground cover shrub. It was seriously going to be a difficult recovery operation! I could literally bounce on top of these plants like being on a trampoline and they barely moved! That’s how bad it was! Throughout my entire search I would have to walk over the top of the bushes and metal detect every square inch of the wild jungle-of-a-mess! Not only was the root system so very out of control, but the branches of the shrubs were so very tight, strong and majorly condensed.

Kyle returned to his apartment as I gathered up all of my equipment including my metal detectors, pinpointer, boots and gloves. It was a cold night outside but I was up for the challenge of solving the mystery as to where the ring finally ended up. I completely understood why Kyle never found the ring because you could not see a thing looking into those shrubs.

The Horrible Thick Roots and Branches Made the Search Extremely Difficult!

I first started to metal detect over the top of the plants to see if maybe the ring had ended up in the middle of the bushes rather than dropping to the bottom. I picked up all kinds of signals but there was no ring to be found. I did discovered tons of trash all over that area of landscaping!

Eventually, once I pulled most of the trash out of the bushes, I changed the sensitivity on my detector and began to hover over the bushes that were about 18 inches to 2 feet high in some places. Not even a small 6 inch metal detector coil (the disc at the bottom of the metal detector) could fit in between the roots of these tough plants! I had to carefully listen to every faint signal and evaluate whether or not that particular target signal could be legitimate to check out. Each time I came across a target that was in the range of Kyle’s ring, I carefully put my pinpointer down into the bushes and searched the area below. Most of the time, I would be picking up multiple pieces of trash that were in the same area as the signal that I was searching for. It wasn’t easy and after a while it was no longer fun trying to find this little guy!

The Missing Ring Resting in the Middle of the “Jungle”!

Approximately 45 minutes into my search, I picked up another faint signal that was definitely in the range of Kyle’s wedding band. Because I have so much experience with various types of ring searches, I knew the number range that I was looking for on my detector screen. This one matched up quite well but until I got myself down into the bushes once again, I would not know what I was dealing with. I jumped back on top of the bushes and placed my pinpointer way down below. Sure enough, as I isolated that particular piece of metal with my orange handheld detector, I saw Kyle’s missing white gold ring resting beside an old beer bottle! I finally found the distraught young man’s beloved wedding band! I couldn’t be happier to wrap up that particular search!

There was no way in the world that Kyle would have ever found his ring because there was no ability to detect this piece of metal with one’s own eyes in that horrible jungle below! The young man needed the technology and skills that THE RING FINDERS provide people like Kyle and Shayna!

I was beyond thrilled to surprise the couple with the good news! Believe me, they were definitely surprised in the way I revealed the ring to them! Presenting the handsome keepsake back to its owner was a wonderful experience indeed! Seeing Kyle’s and Shayna’s sweet smiles shining so bright were worth all of my hard efforts in recovering the wedding band!

We are so thankful for his skill, passion and commitment to this amazing calling, and feel so lucky to have received the recommendation from a friend to contact him! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Lost and Found in Washington DC House…Family Heirloom Engagement Ring

from Washington (District of Columbia, United States)
Contact: 1-301-466-8644

Kat’s Beautiful Family Heirloom Engagement Ring!

Excitement and Relief Written All Over Kat’s Smiling Face as She Displays Her Treasured Keepsake!

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

As a ring finder, I consider myself not only a metal detectorist, but also a “metal detective”. Many of the people that contact me are ones that need help solving the mystery as to what happened to their ring. They are not sure if the ring ended up in the grass, leaves, sand, water, or even snow. Yet, they sometimes don’t think outside the box by including the possibility that the ring never made it into nature’s elements all along. I searched houses and vehicles all the time and this story is an example of exactly that situation.

Kat was running late to get to her Washington DC gym for her regular workout class. She took her engagement ring off, placed it in a side pocket in her gym bag, threw some other things inside, placed the bag on the back of her bike and hurried to make her appointment.

When Kat arrived back home later that evening, she dropped her things at the door and forgot about retrieving her ring until sometime the following day or so. When she finally returned to the gym bag to recover the ring, Kat was shocked to find out that it was no longer inside. She started to panic and looked everywhere in the house as well as in her vehicle. She retraced her steps and started searching along the streets that she traveled on her way to the gym, looked everywhere at the workout center and still nothing turned up.

Eventually the distraught young lady filed a police report because she didn’t know if somebody may have stolen the ring while she was working out at the gym. The bag was left unlocked along with all the rest of the other gym members’ belongings. Kat called local pawn shops and checked eBay to see if somebody was already trying to sell her ring online. In addition to that, the young lady even printed “LOST” signs, hoping that if somebody did find it on the street, maybe that person would be honest enough to turn the cherished item in and receive a reward for their high ethical practices. Unfortunately, the phone never rang and no text was received about her beloved keepsake.

This ring meant the world to Kat in various ways. The large diamond was a family heirloom that was previously owned by Kat’s mother in law who had sadly passed away shortly before the ring went missing. Her fiancé Peter (now husband) custom designed the band specifically for Kat. There could never be a replacement of something so special and sentimental as this engagement ring. The two of them were devastated when nothing turned up.

Finally, when all of Kat’s other efforts failed to recover the ring, she thought that if it had fallen out of her bag while biking her way to the gym, perhaps it was still somewhere on the street, near the curb or even the sidewalk. Using a metal detector, she thought, might be a helpful tool in finding her lost family heirloom. The moment that she started Googling her particular need online, The Ring Finder’s website popped up. Kat found my profile page and promptly contacted me.

I love trying to solve mysteries for other people because I know how much these items mean to people. They are not simply material objects. These are stories that represent love, family and commitment. I kept Kat on the phone for over an hour and a half, asking her every question imaginable. I wanted to get an accurate picture of what took place and what were all of the possibilities that we were dealing with as to what could have happened to her precious keepsake.

When I am working with people that are not sure what happened to their item, it is so important that I look at all of the possibilities of the situation as if it’s a crime scene. Then, I come to the most likely conclusion based on my years of experience and I start the search at that point. Wisdom comes from the Lord according to the Bible, and so I heavily rely on my faith in God to help guide me along the investigative trail, using wisdom which is full of logic, common sense and reflecting on past successful experiences.

Once I acquired all of the facts on the phone with Kat, we set up a time later that night for me to come out with my metal detector and immediately search along the streets leading to the gym. If we did not find the ring outside, I highly recommended that I search inside their house. I conduct in-house searches all the time and I am highly successful in recovering lost rings inside houses.

In the meantime, before my arrival, I highly recommended that my client continue to search inside her home near the front entrance. From everything that Kat told me, I told her that I thought that the ring most likely ended up falling out of her bag when she dropped it by the front door. It could have ended up rolling across the hardwood floor and was hiding  behind something. I shared with Kat that shoes are generally the number one culprit where rings end up inside near the front door. Not only have I seen this happen before, but other Ring Finders that I’m associated with have shared similar stories with me, as well.

I shared with Kat that it was highly unlikely that her bag leaned over enough to spill the ring out on the street while she was biking to the gym. If that was the case, she probably would have lost something else along the way, as well. This left us with the possibility of theft or that the ring fell out of her bag when she placed it on the floor upon arriving home that particular evening from the gym.

I suggested that Kat take a a high lumen flashlight, turn off all the lights in her living room which was adjacent to the front hall next to the front door and search every crack, crevice and corner! I encouraged her to look inside anything that the ring could have fallen into (including shoes and other bags nearby). She agreed to take on this assignment during the hours before my arrival.

Well, just as I was texting my client to let her know that I was on my way to Washington DC for the evening search, Kat called me in a state of utter ecstasy to share the amazing news the she in fact recovered her missing ring! Though she had searched the first floor of her house several times during the days prior to contacting me, she listened to my advice and sure enough, she found the ring inside another item that was lying on the floor located behind a piece of furniture!

Apparently, the ring had fallen out of her gym bag, rolled along the hardwood floor behind a piece of furniture and then slipped inside another container! Using her phone’s flashlight in the dark, she was able to catch a glimpse of her precious jewel that was peeking out just enough to catch the light from her phone! Absolutely wonderful! My client was so happy and she couldn’t stop thanking me for all the help that I gave her earlier that afternoon! I was simply overjoyed for Kat that this most cherished family heirloom would remain in the family for many generations to come!

I was beyond excited for Kat and Peter! How fantastic was that moment when I heard the incredible news that the engagement ring was safe and sound in their home! And most importantly, that beautiful  diamond and yellow gold band was finally back on Kat’s finger… exactly where it belonged and nowhere else!

 

 

Testimonial

One evening I was hustling to the gym in downtown DC, running late for a workout class. I took off my engagement ring and tucked it into my bag, but when I got home it was nowhere to be found. The ring has huge sentimental value – the band was custom designed for me, and the diamond originally belonged to my mother in law, who recently passed away. My spouse and I were heartbroken. I searched the gym – nothing. We were terrified that it had slipped out of my bag on the street… what would be the odds of recovering it then? After filing a police report, calling local pawn shops, checking eBay, and printing “LOST” signs, I thought if there was any chance of finding the ring on the street, a metal detector would be necessary. I stumbled across TheRingFinders.com in a Google search and found Brian’s profile. When I called Brian, I was expecting a polite “please schedule an appointment” response. Instead he spent over an hour on the phone with me, talking me through every step I had taken since the last time I saw the ring. He was extremely considerate, reassuring, and positive, while digging for details to narrow down where the ring might be. He offered to come out that night, but after I got off the phone I decided to take one more look around our apartment. Brian had said that night time is actually a good time to look for a ring because it will reflect a bright light. So even though I had already scoured our place, I turned on my phone’s flashlight and looked again. Lo and behold the ring had fallen out of my gym bag, behind a piece of furniture and slipped down inside another container – but it was peeking out just enough to catch the light from my phone. If not for Brian, it would have been weeks, if not months, before I recovered my ring – time I would have spent grieving my most cherished possession. Brian’s thoughtful and thorough consultation put me at ease that I had an expert on the case, and gave me the clue that led me to find it. He has clearly seen it all and cares a ton about the people he is helping as much as solving the mystery of each misplaced item. If you’re in Maryland/DC/VA and you’ve lost something precious, call Brian! You won’t find a better partner to help locate it. Thank you, Brian!

Ring lost for 2 days before being found!

from Auckland (New Zealand)
Contact: 0275812660

Luisa contacted me to say that while packing up the family picnic at Maraetai Beach Auckland.
She lost her ring in between shaking the rug and retrieving the kids clothes near the shore.
I wasn’t able to hunt for a couple of days and was convinced after hunting in the wrong place that it had been picked up on this very popular Beach for metal detecting.
Luckily for both of us Luisa turned up to check on my progress and gave me the search area.
I set out boundaries in the sand and then grid searched that area. I found a silver ring and a dog tag, then we decided to extend the search area.
I worked my way back towards the waters edge, the beach is a very clean beach so it was easy to dig each target and know it could be the ring.
I dug a target that was a gold signal and fortunately it was a gold ring, I asked Luisa to come and look at it to see if it was hers.
It was hers, she shed tears of relief, another job done.

Ashley called me asking for help in finding her husband’s wedding ring which he had lost the day prior at a local park while playing with his young children in the sand box. They had searched for hours trying to find it with no luck. I let her know I could be there within the hour, she agreed, and I was on my way.

When I got to the park, I found Ashley. She had her mother and children with her. She showed me the sandbox, which really was not very big, so I began my search. In about 20 seconds I had a good solid signal, I dug, and there in my scoop was her husband’s ring. Ashley had just gone over to talk with her mother probably thinking she might be there for a while when I held the ring up for her to see. She came over very surprised to see the ring they had searched so diligently for. She was very happy to have it returned, and I was very happy to be a part of her joy this day!

I received a call from Beth asking for help in finding her lost ring. She had been at the beach the day before, and made sure she wisely removed it, and put it in the zippered pocket of her bag where she also put her COVID mask. As she was getting ready to leave the beach, she removed her mask to put it on, and surmised that the ring came out with it, and was lost in the sand. I asked about the area, and she said that it was on the slope down to the water as opposed to being in the dry sand. It sounded like a good possibility of a recovery if it was out of the way of the county beach cleaning machines, and if another detector did not find it first. I told her I would leave as soon as possible to meet her there.

When I arrived Beth met me and took me to where she had been the day before. I realized it was high tide, and there was some good sized surf, so I went back to my vehicle to get my waders, to insure I could get out into the surf if needed. The sand was soft in the area she showed me, so I figured the ring would not have moved much laterally, but would have sunk with the movement of the water, which was a good thing. I made one pass close to the cut, then turned to make my second pass. I was about halfway into the second pass when I received my first signal, which was solid. I dug, and in the scoop was a small gold ring. I held the ring up to Beth’s disbelief. She came right over to check it out. She tried it on, it fit. Then she checked the inside for the inscription, yes it was there; this was her ring. Beth was very happy, and I was so glad to be a help for her!
