Branden called me yesterday afternoon around 3pm asking if I could locate his girlfriend’s ring which she had lost in the back alley the night before. Alberta has been under an extreme cold weather warning for the past 12 days and the temperature in Wainwright was -31 with a windshield making it feel like -40C. Wainwright is a 2.5 hrs. drive east of my home base. After asking Branden a few questions and realizing how sentimental the ring was to him I agreed to drive out and do the search.

I arrived at 6pm and met up with Branden and Selina in the back alley. I asked Selina to show me exactly what she was doing when she lost her ring. Selina told me she reached into her car to take a block heater cord out to plug her car in for the evening and as she was doing so she felt her ring slip off from her finger and into the snow.
They both searched desperately for hours for the ring and even piled the snow in buckets and brought them into the house for the snow to melt but had no luck.

Branden had a metal detector and checked the area, but again had no luck, so decided to do a Google search for a better detector and found the Ringfinders website. He checked the directory and found my blog page, He was very impressed with my returned finds and called me.
I spent 2.5 hours with Branden in the extreme cold weather in the back alley searching all possible areas with no luck and by this time Branden was giving up on the search. After again listening to Selina’s story, I recalled a similar situation where a ring had ended up behind the person when they thought the ring had gone forward.

I searched six feet back from where Selina said the ring could be and received a very low tone. I told Branden that this must be the ring.
There, buried 3” deep in the hard packed snow was the ring! Branden could not believe his eyes and the smile on Selina’s face said it all.
Thank you for entrusting me to locate your very precious ring.

Kia Key fob Lost! Oxford Neighborhood, N/E Edmonton. Alberta

I received a call from Chantel on Thursday requesting my service to locate her lost Kia key fob and house keys in her back yard or in neighbor’s yard. She explained that her five year old daughter had them and was playing with them in the back yard. The keys had been missing for all most two weeks and Chantel spent many hours looking for them with no luck. I told Chantel that since we have been in a very cold spell in the -40 Celsius for the past week, her keys were safe. I told her I would search on Saturday morning as the weather was going to be a little warmer at -26 and we both agreed.
I arrived at her residence at 10 am! Chantel showed me her back yard which was a small yard and explained that her daughter was playing and throwing the keys around the yard and that there was a possibility that they could also be in the next door neighbor’s yard. I did a thorough search but no keys were found so, with permission, I went to both neighbors’ yards and still no keys were found. Chantel was giving up so I said that they had to be here somewhere! In the corner of her neighbor’s yard was a garden shed and I asked Chantel if she had a ladder so I could check the roof of the shed. Bingo, there were the keys.
As we all know! Key fobs are very expensive to replace. Chantel was very happy to have her keys back.

I received a text from Phil on Wednesday afternoon requesting my service to locate his lost wedding ring which he lost on Tuesday evening.
I called Phil and explained to him I was out doing another ring search and asked him if I could call him back once I was done with that search and that was ok by him.
I meet up with Phil at the parking lot and he explained to me what happened. He was helping his co-worker dig out his car which was stuck in a snow rut by pushing back and forth and throwing gravel for traction. Once the car was freed from the rut Phil realized his ring was missing. Someone suggested scooping up the snow and carrying it to the basement to melt which he did and he had a large pile. He must have done dozens of trips down to the basement. Then a co-worker suggested there had to be a better way to find a ring and suggested a metal detector. He googled and found me! I searched the pile of snow in the basement but no ring to be found. I headed out to the parking lot and searched the immediate area where the car was but again no ring was found. I searched further out from the immediate area and found the ring approximately 15 feet out of the search area.
Thank you Phil for entrusting me to locate your lost ring! Another very happy and grateful Client!

Gloria lost them two years ago in Rundle Park while attending a party. She explained she was among the trees in the park and the landscape was full of 4 inch deep wood chips.
