Lost Gold Wedding Band Found in Riverchase area of Hoover, Alabama!

from Pinson (Alabama, United States)
Contact: 1-205-283-7292

I received a call from Taylor Schach over the weekend while at the beach for spring break. Spoke with him for about 15 minutes about his wedding band that he lost while doing some yard work to fix the excavations from a few chipmunks. He explained he was working in the yard and believed that he knew the area where he lost it. He stated that he went and rented a metal detector and tried to find it himself. After a bit of searching and no help from the people who he rented the detector from as how to operate it, he only managed to come up with a few clad coins in the yard. He searched the internet and came upon the ring finders site and saw I was in the area and called. I explained that I would be returning home on Sunday and maybe we can meet late Sunday or Monday after I got off work. We settled for Monday because I would be turning late Sunday from the beach.

I made it over to Taylor’s residence and he showed me the areas where he was working and filling in the chipmunks holes and tunnels. He also said that it could have come off in the driveway while playing basketball also and believed that if it did it would be located in the bushes next to the driveway. After planning out how I wanted to do my search, I pulled out the pinpointer and started to check each hole that he filled up with dirt, there was about a total of 10 or so holes that need to be checked. After about 5 minutes I started to get a signal with my pinpointer in a hole that had a tunnel in it that went off at an angle that he had filled in. After scooping it out twice I started to get a signal, after scooping out another five or six times the signal was not in the hole anymore. I turned my pinpointer to the area I was piling up the dirt and there was the signal again. Moving the dirt with the edge of the pinpointer the gold wedding band shined in the sunlight. Taylor was surprised that I found it that fast. He was very happy that I was able to recover his wedding band for him. It was down about 8 inches, down in the chipmunk tunnel. It never gets old to see the expressions on their faces when you tell them you found it and you are able to return their lost possessions to the them.

from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-780-497-2118

 

Danny called me this morning requesting my service to locate his keys and remote that he just lost while shoveling gravel in the basement of a new home and it was imperative that they where found before the cement truck came to pour the basement floor. I told Danny I would be there with in a half hour.

I met up with Danny at the house and he showed me the area that he was working in and that the keys could be six to eight inches down in the gravel. I told him no problem, I will find them after a few passes over the gravel.  I found his keys about four inches down. Danny was very happy that the keys where found as replacing them would have been very expensive,  along with a costly tow truck ride to the dealership.

Thank you Danny,  Another happy Client

Misplaced Rings, Found Westlock, Alberta Canada

from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-780-497-2118

 

I received a call from Kimberly this morning asking if I could help her grandmother locate her misplaced wedding/engagement rings at her home out in Westlock, Alberta, which is approximately 40 miles north of me. I told Kimberley I could be out there by 1Pm.

I met with Kimberley’s grandmother, and Arlene started telling me that the rings had much sentimental value to her as they had been in her possession for over 60 years.  The rings were loose on her finger and could possibly be in any of four locations: the car, house, grocery store, or coffee shop.

I checked her car, house, and back yard with no luck. I decided to head out to the store where Arlene told me that she had picked up groceries and some corn out of a bin and that possibly the rings fell off and were in with the corn. I asked the store supervisor if anyone had handed in rings and nobody had, next I went to the coffee shop, same thing, no rings. I then checked with the RCMP to see if anyone had handed in any rings and no one had so I decided to go to the only jewelry store in town to see if someone had tried to pawn some rings in the last couple of days and no one had. After exhausting all possible leads I decided to head back with Arlene to the house and have a final search while still asking questions. That is when Arlene told me that yesterday she had bathed her dog, washed and dried the towels, and then had put the towels away under the sink.  There amongst the towels were her rings!

Arlene was so happy to have her rings back on her finger once again.

Thank you Kimberly and Arlene for entrusting me to find you’re your lost rings!

Another happy client.

Marine’s shrapnel necklace Slidell, Louisiana – Found

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

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.
