Lost a ring?
Don’t wait to call!
I received a call from Teri about her father’s World War II ring that was lost in Stone Harbor, NJ on Saturday. Her father, who was very fond of the sea, was a Merchant Marine in World War II and his ring is very sentimental to the family. Her son, Patch, has been wearing the ring for the past few years. To keep the ring safe while on the beach, he placed it in the cup holder of a beach chair. Unknowingly, his cousin put on the backpack chair and went to the water to clean off some sand before leaving. Patch realized the ring had fallen out, and he and his family searched the area. They resigned to the thought that it was probably lost forever since it may have been dropped in the ocean.
I met up with Teri and did an extensive search of the area where it might have fallen out. I had to return a second time to be able to go out farther in the water. It was in waist-deep water that I finally got the signal. It was a great feeling when the ring showed up in the scoop and was able to be returned to the family.

Kiera called me yesterday, with a little doubt in her voice, about a ring that was lost by her sister in the surf. Kiera’s sister Julia had just lost her engagement ring at the beachcomber, at Cahoon Hollow Beach, in Wellfleet, MA she said it was down in the surf where she was dragged out over the rocks, she got swept up, and pummeled in the current, and suddenly realized her ring was gone. They looked for over an hour as the surf was crashing them all over the area. Frantically they were not sure where to turn. Kiera said that the Lifeguard had mentioned that there were a couple of local guys that have found rings there in the past, that she should try them. Sure enough she googled Lost Ring and Richard Browne and My name showed up. Kiera wasted no time and got in touch with me through texting. I immediately called her back, I had her send as many pictures with reference points as possible. She said it was strait down from the sign in the picture, and in knee deep water.
Luck was on her side the next day, the water was not crashing as it was the day of loosing it, and the wind was off shore. Rick & myself got there about an hour before the low tide, 15 seconds into the hunt, I found the beautiful double welded ring, I put it in my pouch for safe keeping till Julia showed up. Needless to say we were all smiles when they showed up, she was very happy to hear that we were successful in recovering it for her. It was a ring that was passed down through a couple of generations. No words can express their heartfelt Thank You. Another great recovery for The Ring Finders.

Lendita called me to ask I could find her wedding band in Wildwood Crest, NJ. She explained that it must have fallen out of her purse on the beach earlier in the day. After a quick search of the area, the ring was returned.
White Gold Engagement Ring
Two weeks ago Rick got a call from Jill, we got together the very early next morning. There was a Hurricane coming that next evening, and time wasn’t on our side. Together we do searches, for quite a few people each year. we really wanted to get this one back to the owner fast, she was newly engaged. This Engagement Ring is very sentimental to Jill. Well after chatting with Jill about where it was lost, and how deep of water, and being hit by a wave, she swore it was just rite there in shallow water on the slope. After 6 hours of search time between both of us, we finally gave in to the thought of it not being found that day… Maybe after the storm? We had also had thoughts of someone else finding it the night before, we had seen some scoop areas on the beach. We had also found out it was posted on local media. Was it found already?

Rick called me last night two weeks had passed, Rick said lets give it another chance. Success today? Rick and I went rite down to the same spot where we were told it was lost two weeks earlier…. Nothing again after an hour. I said this is crazy, so I wandered over the other side of the Jetty, and as soon as I got into the water, 50 feet down the beach, and knee deep just as Jill said, one lonely signal and there in my scoop it shined like it was lost an hour ago. Wow I couldn’t believe it myself. I went back over to Rick, yelled Game Over! He said what? I repeated it multiple times till he came out of the water, he looked down at my Caribiner. He said I cant believe you found it way over there… I chuckled, and said it was exactly where Jill said it wasn’t… LOL After getting back to the truck we called Jill, and I told her I may have something that belonged to her, she asked if I had it… I said yes I believe so, and said can you meet us at the beach. Her reply was I’m on my way, see you in fifteen minutes. As you can imagine, she just couldn’t believe it until it was back on her finger. Sometimes, a Margarita girls night out can make you forget exactly where it was when you last seen it… Bottom line is that it’s back home where it belongs… Congratulations Jill

On Saturday 8/14/2021 Richard Browne and I were out looking for a wedding band and returned it successfully to its owner. When we returned, we had another call to go out on, and it was a lost wedding band that the woman had on her finger since 1965. Very sentimental as one could expect. It was lost while playing ball in the back yard with her Grandson the day before. Rick & myself got there to be greeted by Roberto, His Wife Jaclyn and Ryan, who was there while it was lost. Ryan a small Pirate in his own special way, was very enthused, and very into metal detecting helped out with the search. After about 45 minutes, and all of us on our hands and knees with pin pointers searching the flower beds, I had the notion to check over the other side of the fence, hey you never know rite? Maybe she throws harder than we think. Luck would be in our favor, low and behold the ring was rite on top of the grass, and on the other side of the fence… Another great save and one for the Ring Finders. A great three ring return day yesterday. What a great feeling to tell someone that we have it in our hands and we can’t wait to get it back.

Rick Browne from the Ring Finders gave me a text earlier this morning and asked if I were up for another hunt, I said of course I am in, Lets do it. We met up today at the Beach location where the Tungsten Wedding Band was lost the day before by Brian. Brian met us there and we all went over where and how he thought he lost it. We marked out an area on the beach, where he was building sand castles with his son, and where it may have dropped off into the waters edge. Rick went one way, and I the other, on the dry sand at first. Twenty five minutes later we still had no ring. I chatted about it with Brian again, and he said maybe it fell while he swam a bit further out, I checked out there too, still nothing. I then went outside the lines that he had made for us, and as I was searching, I mentioned to Brian if and when I find it, most likely it will be rite on top. I took two steps and got a nice loud target, moved my coil off of it, and looked into the two foot clear water, and I could see it, there it was just sitting on top just as I said it would be, I called Brian over to witness it, and Rick joined in to. Another successful hunt by Rick and myself. Brian’s Anniversary is this coming Monday. Congratulations Brian, and Happy Anniversary. Leighton
