Lost Keys recovered in Snow

  • from Calgary (Alberta, Canada)

I received a call from Brandon, he had found me on The Ring Finders website ( www.TheRingFinders.com). He asked if I could find keys in the snow,to which I answered “I sure can!”.

It turns out Brandon was calling me From Red Deer Alberta a 250 km round trip from my my home in Airdrie. He had lost his Keys a week ago while shoveling his walks I’m front of the house and on the property and back drive plus he did the neighbors walks for them. The snow was piled up 3 ft high on each side of the sidewalks. When I arrived he pointed the area out to me and I decided to start in front along the public side walk. I tested my keys and was getting a Visual display ID of 75, so I figured his keys would likely be between 70 & 80. After completing the scan of the front of his yard I proceeded on to do the neighbors front yard and within 4 feet I got a clear but faint 75, I dug threw the snow and at about 1-1/2 feet up popped Brandon’s keys, he was thrilled!

He told me that it would have cost him over $350.00 to replace them not to mention the time and effort to do that. Brandon appreciated me coming out to find them for him as he thought he may never see them again. Once again The ring Finders to the rescue!

Lost Pendant Recovered in Calgary – New Brighton

  • from Calgary (Alberta, Canada)
I got called out to day to New Brighton in SW Calgary to find a Gold Chain and Pendant.  When I got there Jay showed me were him and his brother had been rough housing out in the yard last night.
Unfortunately before I got there he had taken a snow shovel and tried looking for the chain & pendant distributing the snow around the yard. I set to work griding the area and searching for a likely signal but found nothing in the area he had indicated. I expanded my search outside the designated area and got a loud 65, clearing the snow away I recovered the Pendant which Jay quickly took from my hand saying he thought he would never see it again. I still had to locate the chain. I completed the rest of the yard and re-scanned it one more time in the opposite direction but still nothing.
Puzzled, I asked Jay if he had checked the coat he was wearing because sometimes the heavier pendant falls off but the broken chain can catch on clothing. He said, he was pretty sure he had checked, so I went back to detecting hoping for the best. Jay had disappeared for awhile, then called me to say he had taken another look at the coat and Found the chain in the hood of he coat.
                                                   I love helping folks find their lost precious items.

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.
