Lost Wedding Ring Eva, AL…Found!

Contact: 1-610-504-6135

I received a text message from Makayla late Monday night (29 April 2019) stating that she was sick to her stomach with a lost wedding ring. She told me that the ring was lost in her front yard and that she had been searching on her hands and knees looking for it. I thought that this should be an easy search, so we arranged for me to come out on Wednesday after I got off from work. As some of my fellow Ring Finders know, the searches that we think should be easy actually turn out to be some of the harder ones.

I met Makayla at her house on Wednesday evening. She told me that on Saturday she had thrown both her engagement ring and wedding band in a moment of anger. This happens way more than people think. The important thing was that she was honest with how it was lost, which would help me narrow down the search area. Makayla had found the engagement ring right away. It was only about 10 feet away from the porch where she was standing. We did a couple of test throws and my test ring went about 20-30 feet into the yard. Unfortunately, her house used to be a store, so there were a ton of signals all over the yard. The two rings were part of a set, so I got the signal that I would be looking for off of her engagement ring. I set up a grid and got to work. 2.5 hours later and still no ring. I didn’t want to give up, but I had to call it a night.

I went back out today and decided to check every signal just in case the ring was being masked by another piece of metal. After about 2 hours of searching and still no ring, so I kept expanding my grid further down her yard. After about 30 minutes of checking various signals, I had found her lost wedding ring!!! The ring was about 60 plus feet away from the porch! How the wedding band traveled so much further from the larger engagement ring and test ring completely baffled us. But nonetheless, the ring was found and we were all very happy and relieved. Makayla was very thankful for my persistence and determination! I don’t like to give up and it really bothered me that I couldn’t find it on Wednesday.

Makayla, it was a pleasure to find your ring and thank you for trusting a Ring Finder! I really love what I do!!!

Lost Engagement Ring Gurley, AL…Found!

from Huntsville (Alabama, United States)
Contact: 1-610-504-6135

I had my first search as a Ring Finder today, and I’m happy to report that it was a success!!!

I received a call from Ginger this morning (Saturday, 16 February 2019).  She told me that she had lost her gold engagement ring on Wednesday (cold and rainy day) and that she’s had that ring for 34 years.  I’m 32, so she’s had that ring 2 years longer than I’ve been alive!  I knew I had to find it.  I grabbed my gear and headed her way.

I arrived at her farm in Gurley, Alabama.  Ginger explained that she had rented a metal detector and spent numerous hours trying to find her ring.  With no luck, she went on Craigslist to post an ad for help.  She saw my posting on there (which I had just renewed yesterday) for the Ring Finders.  Ginger told me that her ring meant a lot to her and she was devastated that it was lost.  She recently had it repaired and it was weighting heavier than before.  She showed me 2 spots that she thought it could’ve fallen off and I got to work.

The first area I searched was where she had tossed a tape measure.  Ginger had actually grabbed a bolt and reenacted the throw a few times before I got there.  I setup a grid and searched that area for about an hour, but no ring.

We moved on to the next spot, which was by a few hay bales that Ginger was working around.  She had moved a tarp off of the bales and was standing on top of one of the bales to help move a few.  I detected along her path there.  Next, I started detecting the sides and top of the bales.  I got a great signal on the top of the right hay bale.  I pulled out my pin pointer and saw that gold on gold, her lost engagement ring!!!  We were both so excited and Ginger was very happy to have her ring back!  It was such an awesome feeling to be able to reunite Ginger with her lost engagement ring!  Total search time was about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Ginger, it was a real pleasure to find your ring, and thank you for calling the Ring Finders!!!  As Chris Turner always says, I love my job!  I agree 100%
