Lost Ring Green Bay

from Green Bay (Wisconsin, United States)
Contact: 1-920-288-2734

100_0923It’s the beginning of March, and soon the snowbanks will be melting.   Lost IPODs, rings, keys, and other valuables will soon be revealed.  My equipment can find rings in snow, but a good spring thaw expands search possibilities.

I found 15 lost rings last year, and 16 the year before.   With the ground thawing and lakes and rivers opening up, now is the time to contact me if you would like to schedule a search.

Don’t worry if it’s been lost a long time.  Once, I was called to find a depression-era gold class ring that was lost in the late 1940’s.  At the time, a little girl had borrowed the ring from her dad to play with it, and hung it on a pine tree branch so she could climb the tree.  It flipped off and was seemingly gone forever.   Many decades later, it took me a bit of luck and 20 minutes worth of searching with a Tesoro Silver Sabre to find it.  Smiles were on everyone’s faces as their precious artifact was returned.

The school insignia needed some restoration, but the main portion of the ring kept its beautiful shine, as gold always does.

So call me to discuss your loss, and perhaps schedule a search.   The least one can do is try.


Lost white gold diamond engagement ring in Mauldin, Sc

from Greenville County (South Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-864-905-0297

I was contacted by Kim who found my name on The Ring Finders directory to find her daughter-in-law’s white gold engagement ring that has been lost since October of 2011. I met Kim where the ring was lost and searched the back yard only to find the usual metal junk, foil, pull tabs, and other small misc pieces of cans. Half of the yard was full of metal targets while the other half was surprisingly void of metal targets, with no luck of finding the ring. I even looked in the shrubs and about anywhere my metal detector would go. I will search again sometime in April when Kim’s daughter-in-law is back in town and try to recreate the events of the ring being lost. So I won’t give up. Not every story is a successful ring find so that is why I will post all my searches.

Thank you for looking!

Lost Wedding Band Found in Snow at Cudahy, WI

from Menomonee Falls (Wisconsin, United States)

McGrath SmileAn icy patch on the sidewalk in front of Brian McGrath’s home proved treacherous when Brian’s feet slipped out from underneath him. After collecting himself on a set of nearby steps he removed a glove and began dusting the snow and grit from his coat, but as he did so, he felt his heavy, white-gold wedding ring leave his finger. It seemingly vanished into the whiteness around him.

Despite Brian’s best search efforts the ring eluded discovery, even when he rented a metal detector. And his dissapointment only intensified when someone told him,
“Metal detectors are not able to detect white gold.”

It was then Brian contacted me by email through The Ring Finder’s directory. I assured him that my equipment, tuned properly and under most conditions, was able to ‘see’ white gold just fine. This technological fact, coupled with my thirty-seven years of metal detecting experience was a huge comfort to Brian. We agreed to conduct a search early the next morning.

Coffee cups in hand and bundled up against icy winds coming off Lake Michigan, we reviewed the historical sequence of events on location. Finally, Brian stood at ‘ground zero’ and re-enacted his arm movements (except for his spill of course) to the best of his memory. Then the search began. It didn’t take long, however, until I heard the distinctive bark in my headphones I was anticipating. A few scrapes of white powder was all that was needed to bring Brian’s ring to the light of day once again.

Brian, I enjoyed assisting you with the recovery of your ring. Thanks too, for your kind reward. And all the best to you and your wife as you anticipate a new addition to your family in just a few weeks time! May the story of your ring continue as a treasured family memory for many years ahead.

Muskegon, MI-Lost engagement ring in the snow

from Grand Rapids (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-616-406-6653

I got a call last week from Obi who lives in Muskegon, MI. He and his fiancee were in their back yard horsing around in the snow. Prior to them playing in the snow Obi’s fiancee gave him her ring which needed resizing. He put it in his pocket and together they enjoyed the new fallen snow. It was a small back yard and when they started to go into the house he felt in his pocket and said the ring was gone. Obi had a metal detector junior and tried to find the ring but couldn’t. The next day he went out and rented a better detector to no avail. There is a septic tank cover near where he lost it and the detector keptIMG-20130224-00553 peeping.

Obi looked on line for “find my lost ring” and came across he then looked in the directory and found my name. With a lot of things going on during the week and being it wasn’t lost in a public area I told Obi I would be out Sunday Feb 24.

My brother Doug and I searched the 50′ by 75′ back yard and could not get a signal on the ring. We cleared all the snow off the septic tank area and check the snow with no luck. Since the loss there has been about 6 to 10 inches of snowfall which made hunting a little harder because the snow was very heavy.

Obi gave me money for gas and I told him my next trip after a thaw was on me. I assured his fiancee not to worry we will find it.

Lost Keys Found in Providence, RI

from Woonsocket (Rhode Island, United States)
Contact: 1-401-225-5770

A week ago, Michelle contacted me because her husband had lost a set of car keys somewhere on their property.  Unfortunately, they were lost prior to a snowstorm, which dropped over two feet of snow in our area.  Michelle’s husband was doubtful that I would be able to find the keys and had already had the car towed to a local dealership.  This was the only set of keys she and her husband had for the car, and they needed the car to get to work.  After searching the property on three separate occasions, I located the keys buried in a large mound of snow.  Michelle was happy to get the keys back and to prove her husband wrong!
