Braden called me last evening around 7:00 pm requesting my service to locate his girlfriend’s promise ring which was lost in front of her house,  either on the road or lawn.   I told him I would be there within the hour.

When I met Braden he told me that he had spent over two hours in the dark cold blustery evening searching for the ring.  He told me where he thought the ring might be and I found the ring on the road two feet from where we stood. Braden had considered going out and purchasing a metal detector from Canadian Tire but as he was searching on Google he found me and The Ringfinders.

Thank you Braden for entrusting me to find your Promise Ring. Another happy client.

Joseph called me this morning requesting my services.  He explained that he and his wife were out this morning at a park taking photos of themselves in the freshly fallen snow that we just received over night. When they returned home he noticed his ring was missing from his finger.

Joseph quickly went on the internet to locate a metal detector to rent and instead found my blog and called me.  I told him I would be there in one hour. I meet up with Joseph and he showed me the area that they walked to,  which made it easy for me as all I had to do was follow their tracks. Within 15 minutes the ring was back on Joseph’s finger.

Thank you Joseph for entrusting me to find your wedding ring.

Another Happy Client.

 

Marine’s shrapnel necklace Slidell, Louisiana – Found

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)

Before Necklace 1 IMG_1914 IMG_1915 IMG_1917Randy is a Marine infantryman combat veteran, having served two tours in Iraq, in 2003 and 2004. His job was anti-armor operations and explosives. On September 6, 2004 he received a traumatic brain injury due to a road side bomb or IED (Improvised Explosive Device). He had a piece of shrapnel from a 155 millimeter mortar shell penetrate his face directly under his right eye. He had two brain surgeries and a facial reconstructive surgery. He now has three plates, titanium mesh, a bracket for a cheek bone and over twenty screws in his skull.

His initial brain surgery was done in Lundstuhl, Germany. The neurologist gave him the piece of shrapnel that entered his skull. Once he got home to Louisiana, a local jeweler mounted the shrapnel on a necklace. The shrapnel is held by an eagle’s claw, the piece then white gold plated.

Randy began working for a professional fireworks company near his home in Covington, LA. Since he had experience with explosives, the transition to fireworks was easy. He also attends school at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette working on a degree in Computer Science. On July 3, 2014 while working at the company’s remote storage facility, he removed the necklace and put it on a pack of papers, then placed the stack in his truck. A co-worker grabbed the stack of papers with the necklace. Later they discovered the necklace was missing.

Randy had worn that necklace for a decade. He expressed the emotions he felt. “I felt like a piece of me died. As you can imagine, this shrapnel meant a lot to me even though it is hard to explain being connected to something that almost ended my life.” He and others hunted the area extensively. Even though friends advised him to “let it go”, he could not. He continued to look for ways to locate the necklace.

We began communicating with Randy in April of this year. We finally were able to meet him on site July 16, just a few days after the one year anniversary of the loss. The site was limestone and grass with several forty-foot long steel containers, separated from each other by two to four feet. Staking out the area of highest probability, Sid started a search within the boundaries. Carrie, with her detector set on “Zero Discrimination”, decided to search outside the lines. She detected a strong iron signal within 2 minutes of her starting the search. Looking down, Carrie saw a tiny chain extending from a patch of grass. The rest of the necklace was hidden in the grass. Needless to say, we were all excited. A few pictures and we were on our way home.

Carrie and I are both proud of the service this brave young man has given to his country and saddened by the injuries he has suffered. We are happy that we were able to help him reclaim a piece of his history.

Australian Opal Earring Houma, LA – Found

Opal Earrings

Carrie and I received a call from Jan telling us she had lost an Australian Opal earring her husband had given to her on their first Christmas together, 34 years ago. Her daughter was to wear them for her upcoming wedding. Wedding pictures were taken at a plantation home in Houma, LA where the wedding is to take place. The bride removed the earrings and Jan placed them in her ears. She then left that location and went to 3 other locations before noticing one of them missing. They searched all possible locations during the week before contacting us.

Carrie and I arrived at the plantation home in a light drizzle to begin our  search. The ground was soaked from recent heavy rains.  Jan estimated her movements after placing the earrings in her ears. After flagging the search area, Carrie adjusted her Garrett ACE  350’s sensitivity and discrimination with the other earring, placing the item in a ziplock and varying the item’s position (post up, post sideways). Made the first sweep slowly with both of us pin pointing every hit. Halfway through the second pass we were both checking out separate hits 1 foot apart when Carrie found the missing earring under the short grass. Our search time was two hours.

It was such a pleasure to meet Jan and to see the beautiful smile on her face when she saw the earring!  Thank you Jan for the generous reward.

Jan and Carrie
