Lost Ring in Sylvan Lake Recovered by The Ring Finders

  • from Calgary (Alberta, Canada)

Mike had been shoveling snow in his back yard and lost his Tungsten Wedding Ring. He didn’t noticed the ring was missing until he was back inside the house warming up.  He searched the Internet for help finding lost rings and found The Ring Finders and this is where the story starts.
Mike, called me on Monday and asked me if I would search for his lost ring in Sylvan Lake Alberta, I said I would be able to go out on Wednesday its out of my area but every search request is special.  Mike was calling me from Toronto where he was on business, I could tell the ring meant a great deal to him.  I spoke with his wife Sarah on Tuesday and confirmed the time I would be out.

When I got there today she greeted me at the door before I could even knock, she was very anxious to get the ring back and thanked me very much for traveling the 149 km to help them.  Sarah, showed me the area where they thought it might be which was basically the back yard the back parking area and part of the lane behind the garage and possibly even on the deck.

After determining that the signal ID I was looking for was in the range of 65 I determined that if I was to check every signal over 60 then I should locate it quickly.  After 30 minutes and only scraping the snow off 6 targets up popped Mike’s magnificent Tungsten Wedding Band.

Lost Titanium Ring Recovered in Airdrie, Alberta

  • from Calgary (Alberta, Canada)

First winter snow has arrived here in Airdrie, AB and  rings slide off fingers quickly when they are cold. Today I was asked to find a mans Wedding Ring.  Kim, explain her husband had been playing with their dog in the snow and had lost his wedding band, unfortunately the hadn’t noticed until they got home and were at the dinner table.

She thought they had a pretty good idea where it might be in the park, so when I arrived we went over to the park and searched the Snow Drifts but had no luck, only about 4 signals that were even remotely close to Titanium.  Kim said, that they had also walked along the pathway to a small bridge before heading home.  I decided the scan the sides of the  pathway and after about 3 feet got a loud tone  and the signal ID number was in the right range for Titanium, but this was on the paved path.  I fully expected this to be something underneath the pavement but when I search for a ring I don’t ignore anything and that’s a good thing because I brushed away the snow and there was the wedding band and a large one at that.

Kim was so happy that she was able to  give her husband his ring back tonight at dinner.  Another smile returned, what a great day for Kim and me. Just love seeing the grateful smiles.
