Yellow Gold Wedding Ring Lost Inglewood Neighbourhood, Edmonton Alberta (Found)

from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-780-497-2118

    

I received a call from Lloyd this morning requesting my service to locate his late father’s wedding band which he was wearing while playing ball with his dog in the park. I agreed to meet him at 2 pm.
When I meet Lloyd I asked him a lot of questions regarding the loss of his ring. He told me he had lost the ring 2 weeks ago while throwing a ball for his dog and that he had rented a metal detector with no luck. He even came back a couple of times with a rake and combed the area again. Finally he checked on the internet and found my advertisement. I gave Lloyd my test ring and I told him to throw the ring in the direction he thought the ring had gone. I told him his ring would be found within 10 feet of where the test ring landed and that is exactly where I found his ring. Lloyd was very grateful to have his father’s ring back on his finger. Again thank you Lloyd for allowing me to locate your lost ring.

 

Ring found and returned — Matlacha

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

Story as told by Steve:

I went fishing over the weekend and lost my wedding ring in somewhat of a freak accident. I was stung by a wasp reaching into a bucket. When I pulled my hand out abruptly, my ring went flying off my hand into the water of Matlacha FL. As I was out before sunrise, I did no see where the ring landed exactly.

I spent the remainder of that day diving and searching for the ring on the 4-5 foot grass flat that I had lost it in. With no luck, I marked the spot on the GPS on my boat and headed in. When I returned home, my wife had found Craig and his wife online through a quick search in Google. I immediately contacted Craig and he agreed to come out and search for the ring the following day after work (2 days after I had lost the ring).

I picked Craig and his wife up at the local boat ramp on my boat and headed into Matlacha Pass. The water was calm with about a 5mph west wind. Having quite the storm the evening before, I was skeptical that we would even have a chance at finding the ring with the current and wind pushing the water around. When we arrived at the grass flat where I had lost the ring, I anchored directly center of my GPS mark as best I could and Craig jumped in the water. I kid you not, less than 5 minutes later he pulled the ring out of the chest deep water. It had embedded itself in the mud and he was able to quickly locate it with his metal detector. Stunned, and in awe I couldn’t believe what I had just witnessed.

Craig and his wife were both very down to Earth, and great people to chat with. They treasure hunt as a hobby and really enjoy helping people locate their lost items. I cannot thank them both enough for finding my wedding ring. My only regret was that I quit recording Craig searching for the ring too soon. Another minute or so and I would have had him on camera finding the ring!

Thank you both again for everything!

Stephanie is from Utah, visiting family here in Laguna Beach, CA. They spent the day at 1000 Steps Beach. Where she had placed her Rose Gold Engagment Ring in her backpack. After leaving the beach returning home she could not find the ring. They returned to the beach that evening to search for the ring with no success. Making it more difficult she was not sure that the ring had been pulled out of the backpack.

 I received a call from Stephanie late that evening just before the beach closed. This beach is gated and closed from 10pm till 6am which made me put off the search till the next morning. She would not be able to meet me at the location because she would be driving back to Utah that day. We spent a few minutes on the phone where Stephanie gave me simple directions to the place they had been that day. 

I was on the beach early the next morning. After the first hour it was not looking like the ring could be found. Before giving up I was able to talk to Stephanie’s brother on my cellphone. He clarified the location and it only took another 15 minutes till I got the gold tone in my earphones. There in my sand scoop was a beautiful diamond engagement ring.

Texted a photo of the ring to Stephanie who was on the road near Las Vegas, NV. It’s awesome that we have the internet and cellphones that make a difference when it comes to finding sentimental items like wedding rings, etc. successful. Her brother and sister in law met me about noon to get the ring. Which they were able to take to Stephanie the next week when they had scheduled a vacation to Utah. 

It has happened several times over the past several years where rings get pulled out of beach bags or backpacks and end up lost in the sand. We had to try this search even though she didn’t see the ring fall into the sand. I knew we had a chance that the ring was lost in that location. This time it was a successful find.

I woke up this morning to an email from Lorena that had been sent in the early morning regarding her friend Diana’s lost iPhone. I emailed her back and asked her to call so we could discuss the loss. When she called I found out they had been out at the beach with friends late last night when one of them picked Diana up and began to spin around. Her phone was in her pocket, and the physical forces of the fast spin caused her phone to slide out and be launched into the sea of sand they were standing in. The phone probably flew like a Frisbee and knife edged itself into the sand because it was gone in an instant. They searched and searched in the darkness, but were unable to find it. I was worried it was in the area of the towel line and that the beach sifters might have gotten it in the early morning, but she let me know it was further back towards the parking lot which gave me hope for a successful recovery.

When I got to the beach and located the young ladies, they were definitely close to the parking lot, and there had been no beach cleaning there. We discussed what had happened, and she laid out the parameters of the search for me. I searched the area finding a lot of iron, bottle caps, and pull tabs, but no phone. As I was finishing up the area Diana came out to let me know they had been a little more towards the water as well, so I let her know I would continue my grid in that direction. I made about 4 more passes finding numerous metal targets, but not the phone. As I began the 5th pass I received a real good solid signal. I gingerly put the scoop in far behind the signal so as not to damage the phone if this was it, and lifted it out. There it was poking out from the dumped sand pile. I looked up and saw Diana and Lorena talking, they had not noticed that I found the phone, so I picked it up and put it in my finds bag and walked over to them. I asked Diana if I should expand the search out further, and when she turned to her friend I pulled the phone out and asked if it looked familiar, she then jumped to her feet in total surprise and joy. Phones can be a person’s lifeline these days, and to loose one can be traumatic experience. To be able to give Diana her phone back was a special experience today; smiles all around!

Gift was give to him 20 years ago and his grandmother passed away a few weeks ago so this search had a lot of meaning.

Mobile Metal Detector Service by Stan Ross member of TheRingFinders call now.. 949-500-2136 .. Available 24/7 …

Cindy had been on line trying to purchase a inexpensive metal detector when she found my contact information on TheRingFinders.com. She had lost a gold bracelet that she has worn daily for fourteen years. Cindy believed it  came off while doing yard work or possibly in her house.

I told her about how metal detectors work and explained that we could eliminate the yard area using a metal detector. She would then able to concentrate her efforts on searching inside her home.

We made arrangements to meet that afternoon. I had thoughts that a gold bracelet should have been an easy to find in a grass lawn without a metal detector. I would understand what the conditions were when I got to the site. 

Cindy met me to show me two small grass lawns and some grass cuttings she saved. She suspected that her bracelet could have been pulled off where she pulled weeds near the rose bushes. I had to set up my detector using a higher frequency because there was electrical interference in the area.

Other than a couple pieces of tinfoil, the front lawn and rose garden didn’t produce the lost bracelet. We moved to the grass cuttings that Cindy had spread out on a tarp on the last small lawn. I got a strong gold signal but it seemed very small. It turned out to be a one inch piece of Cindy’s gold rope chain type bracelet. I had been hit with the lawn mower.

We went through a whole trash barrel full of grass clippings looking for the other six inches of the bracelet without success. Then I located another small (3/8”) piece of the gold chain in the lawn. Now I had an area to concentrate the search. The XP Deus with the high frequency coil located three of the smallest pieces. Then I found the other two pieces in the grass up next to a wall using a pinpointer.

It was a little disappointing that the bracelet had been damaged. Cindy was just happy to know that her cherished bracelet had been found. She plans to have it made into a pair of earrings.

Gold Wedding Band Recovered from Santa Clara Volleyball Court

from San Francisco (California, United States)
Contact: 1-415-895-0334

Mohit removed his glasses, shoes and wedding ring for a few games of volleyball after work with co-workers, and laid them by the side of the court. When the call went out for better line markers and the back of the court, everyone picked up their shoes and laid them along the back of the sandy court. Inadvertently Mohit had flung his ring somewhere near the side of the court when he picked up his shoes. After three attempts to find his ring, his wife found me on the RingFinders site.

Gold objects dropped in the sand tend to disappear quickly. Even if you see when they fall, they can be very difficult to find. A metal detector can make short work of the process, as was the case here.

Mohit’s beautiful gold wedding band!

Lost Platinum & Diamonds Engagement Ring at Ko Olina Lagoon 4…FOUND!!!

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)


This ring find began September 3rd when I got a text from Ruth who said she just lost her Platinum & Diamonds Engagement ring while snorkeling in Lagoon Four of Ko Olina Resort. I made my way to Ko Olina where I met Eric & Ruth (both from San Jose, California) to hunt for the ring. Ruth was sure she lost the ring in chest high water or deeper so that’s where I started my grid search. After over an hour with no luck I decided I better come back the next morning and try the deeper water on scuba. When I arrived the next morning the security guard had already picked up ten box jellyfish from the shoreline so I aborted the dive. It would be Friday before it would be jellyfish free. I started the dive and after an hour and a half under water with no luck I decided I’d try again Saturday AM. On Saturday I brought my friend Terry in case I needed some help. After another hour and a half dive and a complete search of the area I was definitely frustrated when the ring wasn’t found. I thought what if Ruth only discovered the ring missing when she was in the deeper water. I decided to do the shoreline out to chest deep water. BOOM it paid off! In no more then thigh deep water there was Ruth’s awesome ring in my scoop. My theory was correct and as you can see it brought smiles to Ruth & Eric in San Jose when they finally had the ring back on Ruth’s finger where it belonged. Aloha to Ruth & Eric.
