1980 High School Silver Grad Ring Found In Aldergrove Lake

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

This story was about a 1980 silver high school grad ring that was lost in a lake in Aldergrove BC. Its hard to see the ring but she’s holding on tightly to it!

This was a good hour drive from the city and when I arrived to search for the ring I was surprised that when I got close to the middle of the lake my detector was beeping like crazy.

This limited my search and I knew if she had lost it in the middle of the lake I’d have no chance of recovering the ring for her. That being said she had put me in a good area and within 4 minutes I found her ring… She found her smile!

Note: 3 blogs down I talk about this lake and you can see that there is no water in lake as it had been drained. In this picture you can see the water behind her…

I love my job!

If you’ve lost your ring contact me ASAP…I’d be happy to find it for you!

Lost Diamond Earring/South Surrey/White Rock…Found

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

This story is about a lady who lost her diamond earring in her garden, it was lost for over 1 year. Her husband was driving to work one morning and on the radio he heard an interview on my ”Finders” service and wrote down my number and called me.

He told me about his wife’s earring and how much it bothered her that she lost it in the garden and she couldn’t find it. She knew it was there some where, but where?

Of course I was up for the challenge but I knew it would be a tough one as diamond earrings have to be the hardest thing to search for as there is very little gold on the post, so that makes it very difficult to find.

When I arrived the lady showed me the area of the garden where she believed her earring was lost. She tells me that at one time she was digging around a shrub and felt her earring get caught on a branch, but she never thought to check and see if it was still there.

Due to the time (1 year +) she wasn’t sure which shrub it was… Now the search begins!

I start with my Whites V-Sat gold detector and spend a good two hours along side of the bushes and no luck. Unfortunately the shrubs were close to the side of the house as you can see in the picture above and this was impossible to search as my detector was picking up the metal framing.

My next step was to move the dirt away from the house so I wouldn’t have any interference with my detector. I made 6 piles of dirt and searched each pile, the last pile I received a faint signal and as I was sifting through the dirt I found her earring…

I Love my job!

Yellow & White Gold Chainsaw Pendent Found In Surrey BC

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

Years back I get a call from a man who lost what he described as a yellow & white gold chainsaw pendent that was custom made for him as he owned and operated a tree service in Surrey BC.

He tells me that after he and his team cut down a tree in the clients yard they were cleaning up the stump and his pendent fell into the wood chips.

He and his team searched the wood chips for over an hour, even the client came out to search. The next day the man rented a metal detector and searched for a couple more hours, but no luck.

His wife remembered seeing a story on my service in the local newspaper the week before so they contacted me and I was excited to go on a search.

When I arrivedI listened to his story and I started my search in the area he had searched for hours. I got a signal in about 2 1/2 minutes and out from the wood chips came his gold chainsaw.

It was very cool, the yellow gold was the engine and the white gold was the chain and saw. He was so excited and couldn’t believe I found it so fast. You can tell by the smile that he was happy it was found!

I love my job!

If you have lost something and want it found… Contact me ASAP… I’d be happy to find it for you!

BC Parks/Aldergrove Lake Regional Park/ Lost Gold Wedding Band/Reward

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

I received a call the other day and a man told me the story about losing his gold wedding band at Aldergrove Lake Regional Park.

This is a small manmade lake in the shape of a bowl, made of concrete and sand, I had a search there many years ago and found a silver high school grad ring for a lady.

After talking with the man over the phone I knew our chances wouldn’t be good as many people search lakes and this one was recently drained and the sand scraped out to the top as you can see in the picture above.

This didn’t stop me from searching as there is always a chance that I could still find the ring. After 3 1/2 hours and a small amount of change and pull tabs I could tell this lake was worked hard as I was unable to locate the ring in the sand piles.

I believe this ring was found last summer by a treasure hunter and its probably in his or her collection.

If you found a plain gold band in Aldergrove Lake in 2008 please contact me and I will put you in touch with the owner who would be extremely happy to get it back!

There is a Reward being offered for the return of this ring.

I can only find what’s there to find… The sooner you contact me the better your chances are to locate your lost item.

Found Diamond ring at 3rd Beach in Vancouver… Delivered to the owners front door.

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

Its hard to see the picture of this young ladies beautiful diamond engagement ring she’s holding (Sorry about that!) but its easy to see how happy she was to get it back!

This story starts with a phone call from her husband who tells me that he was at the beach and lost his wife’s diamond ring while holding it for her while she went in the water for a dunk.

He goes on to explain that he was rolling the ring between his fingers and it flew out of his hand into the sand. He immediately started to search for it as he didn’t think it would be to hard to find but after a little over an hour he and his wife gave up.

On there way back to the car they stopped off at the lifeguard station to let them know about the lost ring. The lifeguard passed them my flyer and said to call me if they wanted to find their ring, so they did.

The man tells me how to find the area the ring was lost, I stop him and asked if he can show me the area in person as this will ensure a quick recovery.

He tells me that it was fireworks night and that parking would be crazy as so many people come out early to get a good spot on the beach.

I told him I understood and he gave me great instructions on where it was lost, when I get there it was starting to get busy with people and I quickly walk to the lifeguard tower then go ten yards to the right then 12 yards towards the water.

I could see where the two of them were digging around in the sand as it was piled up in spots. I started up my detector and within 20 seconds I found her diamond ring.

I call them and tell them the good news and drive to their home to return the ring. When I get there her husband laughed and said that I was better then Pizza Hunt because I deliver.

I received a nice reward and a big smile.

I love my job!

This story begins when I receive a call from a young lady that told me that her husband lost his ring at the beach last year in early spring. They both saw the ring fly of his finger and disappear into the sand.

They searched for hours sifting the sand but couldn’t find the ring, the lady came back the next day and searched for hours with a rented metal detector but no ring…

Feeling like there was no chance, they were going to post on the Craigslist and came across my add in the Lost & Found.

If you’ve lost something and want it found…Call ASAP

They contacted me and gave me the area where the ring was lost.

When I arrived at the beach I contacted her to make sure I was in the exact area, I was and I found the ring in 30 seconds…

Why would it take me only 30 seconds to find the ring and they searched for hours and didn’t find it?

I guess an example would be… I could buy a jet plane, but it doesn’t mean I can fly it. I’ve been metal detecting for many years and I know how operate my equipment and how to find things.

I called and got their address and drove the ring to their place, she was very excited and was going to surprise her husband when he got home from work as he didn’t know his ring was found .

Lost in Steveston BC… White gold wedding band lost in snow.

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

I get a call from a young man from Steveston who lost his white gold wedding band some where in the snow.

I met up with him and we discuss the area the ring was lost at, its a big area so I have to eliminate the possibilities. We start out by his place where he was petting the neighbors dogs.

This happens a few more times down the street and around the corner as the dogs were following him. I start my search and after 11/2 hours searching in heavy snow we decide to call it quits.

That night I get a call from the young man and he said that there was an area we didn’t check that he remembered wiping the snow off his jacket and petting the dogs.

When I get there the next day the walk way was shoveled high to the side, I searched the area and no luck as the snow was even deeper then the day before.

We talked and I told him that I would come back when the snow had melted. New Years day was the day I found his ring in 4 inches of snow… It took me three visits out there and over 4 hours. He was very happy and was very kind and generous in rewarding for finding the ring.

I love my job!

Vancouver, Kits Beach Lifeguard lost his wedding band!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

Over the years the lifeguards at the Vancouver beaches have been very supportive of my service ”Finders” I have helped two lifeguards in the past 14 years find their lost wedding bands in the ocean at low Tide.

This picture is of a lifeguard who lost his wedding band at Kits Beach while working on a summers day. He lost it at high tide and when I met up with him he gave me the area he believed he lost the ring.

I had to wait a few days for a good low tide and when I started the search of the area it took me close to 3 1/2 hours to locate the ring.

Why so long you say? Well I have to grid search a very large area due to the fact that he put me close to the area but not in the exact area the ring was lost…

I really enjoy helping these people that save lives!

I love my job!

This video is about a young man who was up at Cypress Bowl skiing and when he was returning home his car got stuck in the snow on the side of the road.

He jumped out and started to dig his front tire out of the snow and shortly after realized that his large white gold wedding band was gone. He spent a few hours searching the snow for his ring but gave up as it was dark and cold.

He went back the next day armed with a metal detector and determined to find his ring. Unfortunately the area he lost his ring, by the side of the road was plowed, after hours of searching with the metal detector he gave up.

When he got home he was about to post his lost ring on the craigslist when he saw my add for Ring Finders…
He called me and we met the next day, I found his ring in 5 minutes.
