Lost Ring Omaha Nebraska…Found!

  • from Omaha (Nebraska, United States)

I received an afternoon call from a gal named Jennifer. She was tossing away some trash in the dumpster behind her work when she felt her ring fly off her hand. She thought it went into the dumpster but after jumping in and looking frantically, it was not there. She then tried looking through a large snow pile and could not find it. She called me pleading for help. I agreed to meet her at the dumpster and look for her ring. I knew that detecting would be difficult due to the deep snow and the metal dumpster. and it was 9 degrees outside. So I shoveled all the snow out onto the parking lot and broke it all up to make it flat and manageable. I turned the detector on and received a low quiet tone and knew it was the ring neatly stuck inside a chunk of snow. It took longer to shovel the snow than to find the ring. I was very happy to call her and say I have something for you. She was very happy and could not believe I had found it. The smile on her face tells it all.

Diamond engagement Ring lost in snow on Xmas Eve in Elgin, Illinois. It was recovered

  • from Las Vegas (Nevada, United States)

Received a text message about a lost ring in Elgin, Illinois. Apparently on Christmas Eve, his wife was outside cleaning crumbs off a tablecloth . In doing so, her large diamond engagement ring slipped off in the snow. The husband rented a detector but was unable to find the ring. I came out today, 1/10/2018 and did a 30 minute search. I found the ring which had apparently been stepped on by people searching for the ring. Needless to say he was very happy about finding the ring. I’m sure his wife was equally happy!!
