I received a message from Nicole on Saturday afternoon via the Facebook messenger app on my page – Ring Finders South Jersey. When I spoke to Nicole she said she realized she lost her Archbishop Prendergast class ring and her Claddagh while on the beach the day before in Ocean City, NJ. She thought the rings may have missed her bag when she put them away. Since she went home the night before, she gave me gave me a marker on the beach to put me in the general location where she was sitting. I waited until some of the beachgoers left before I started my search. I heard a signal and out popped the Claddagh ring! Being in the right area, I figured the class ring was nearby. Well as it turns out, that ring wasn’t lost on the beach at all…it was found in the trunk of the car the next day! Great ending to a Saturday night!

Melanie called me on Saturday afternoon after she lost her gold Christian Dior ring in Sea Isle City, NJ. The ring flew off her hand while playing volleyball on the beach. After a very quick search, the ring was back on her finger.
Late Friday evening I received a text from Sam asking if I could find a gold chain and cross in the sand that was lost the previous day in Avalon, NJ. She mentioned the cross was very sentimental because it was given to her mother by her father almost 30 years ago and then given to her. Sam took off the necklace because it got tangled in her hair and placed it on the blanket. After forgetting she had taking it off, the cross and chain went flying across the beach when she shook out her blanket when leaving. I met Sam early Saturday morning to collect some details and started to search. After a thorough grid search of approximately fifty square feet, the necklace and cross were found!
Patrick and his wife were getting ready to tube down the Cannon River in Minnesota, while getting on the tube, Patrick saw his wedding band come off his hand and he tried his best to grab it. The ring disappeared into the river, about waist deep with a very rocky bottom. He tried to find it, and just couldn’t get it. He searched for help on the internet and found theringfinders.com – I met him down by the river and decided that scuba would be the best as the bottom was full of huge rocks and there is no way I could use a scoop to try and recover any signals. I found a few coins and some garbage as usual, though it only took about 15 – 20 minutes and that nice tone rang in my ears. I knew it was the ring.
Congrats Patrick, truly glad I could help!

Out playing golf when I got a call from Lauren about her Brother-in-laws wedding ring. She was given the ring to hold along with his watch so that he could go for a swim. Taking all the precautions to not loss the ring. When he got out of the water Lauren hand him his watch and could not find the ring. It must have come out with the watch and no one could find it. She asked if I could come out the next day to help find the ring. II asked if they knew the are and the answer was yeas, they even has photo of the location with a flag pole in the distance. I meet Janet, the mother of Lauren and we walked to the area where Laren meet the two of us. They took the photo out and lined up the flag pole and the beach. They had a beach fire the night before and once the area was determined . Now I had to search an area about 50 feet by 75 feet. About half way into the search got a very strong signal. Using the beach scoop I found the ring. Mother and daughter were both relived to get the ring for the brother-in-law.

On July 9th, 2021 I received a text message from a person that had lost a ring on a beach and wanted to know if I could come and locate it for her. She told me it was up in Northern Minnesota at her Parents cabin. I could tell that she was somewhat panicked by the loss of a very sentimental ring. I tried to reassure her that It’s not going anywhere, and I would love to come and find it for her. She said they were going to give it another look in the morning and she would get back to me. The next day I received another text that she could not find it and I was given the address of where they were at. After looking up the address on Google maps I headed North. It was about 180 miles from where I was at and I loved every minute of the drive. What a beautiful day for a drive up north. I asked if it was ok if I brought my dog with for the ride and I was told by all means bring the dog.
About 3 hours later I arrived and was met by her mother and several yellow labs and a golden retriever in the driveway. My dog is a yellow lab as well and boy did those dogs hit it off. Running and playing. It was nice because my dog doesn’t get a chance very often to run with dogs her own size much. Before you know it they were in the water have a blast. I was shown the beach where the ring was lost and it was about a 30’ x 40’area. The ring was lost tossing a toy to one of the dogs. So a real direction was not known. It could have taken off in any direction, and maybe even backwards into the lake. I started to looking in the sand for the ring. On my 3rd pass back and forth I got a strong hit for something metallic just under the sand. I brought my sand scoop with to help make things easier. I took a couple of scoops and missed whatever it was. Then I had it in my scoop. A beautiful gold ring. It took less then 5 minutes to locate it. While the party that lost the ring was not around during the hunt she was quickly notified about the recovery and you just knew that everything was going to be OK. It was a honor going up and helping put the pieces of life back in order for one more person. To top it off, my dog was able to have a few playmates for a short time and we were back on the road. It was so nice meeting such a wonderful family, perfect summer day, and an absolute beautiful scenic drive to boot. It doesn’t get much better then tha
I received a message from Stephanie about a lost gold wedding band with diamonds. I contacted her and she told me the approximate location of where she lost it. It makes it a little more difficult when you are not able to meet the person and get a little better location. On my first attempt I was not able to locate it mainly due to the amount of people on top of the spot. I decided to hunt the beach and check later. It worked! When I returned the area was clear of people and I was able to grid the entire area off. It ended up being in a different spot that I first grid off. I was able to meet her and surprise her with the find. Gigmaster on youtube!
Many times people come up to me on the beach to say they lost an item. This case is no different. This man lost his ring while moving from one site to another. Unfortunately it was not where he thought. A quick grid of the area produced the ring!
