John was walking his dog in a school yard park in Maple, Ontario yesterday. He stopped to brush his dog and noticed his new gold engagement 10k gold band from his Fiancé Christina went flying off.
He purchased a metal detector and had no luck finding his ring on his own.
After speaking with Shawn from Carry-all Canada Shawn suggested he contact Alison from the website TheRingFindersDotCom.
John reached out late this afternoon and I flew over on Hwy 407 to meet him within 45 minutes!
Proceeded to the area he felt he lost his ring and as I am a struck heavy grid searcher, I always start anywhere from 10’ to 30’ further back!
Sure enough and just under 1/2 a minute and…. BAM!!! A solid double tone on my new Nokta Makro “Legend” metal detector!!
Check out the video;
One very happy young man!! We immediately sent his Fiancé Christina a photo of him and his ring back on his finger where it belongs!
Thank you John for your very kind donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!!

Dhillion and his lovely bride-to-be where pulled over on the side of the roadway. Unfortunately, there was a disagreement which happens in life. The engagement ring was thrown and lost in the area of a construction site under recent snow.
Dhillion searched for 2 hours very early this morning with no luck. He then came across the link to “The Ring Finders” global directory page and called me.
I dropped everything and met him within an hour!
Within 3 minutes my detector had a beautiful tone. I moved the snow away and saw the diamond filled rim of the ring… and here’s the surprise!
Dhillion and his Fiancé were so very happy to receive this beautiful symbol of love back in their hands!
This is one beautiful elegant engagement ring!!
I am grateful not only for the extra tip I was given but from the incredible donation coming into the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! Dillion will receive a tax receipt for his very generous donation!
Ontario recently had a heavy rain, high winds, followed up by a heavy snowfall.
I had a call from Tony in Caledon who lost a set of keys in the snow somewhere in his driveway.
Tony had fallen in a number of locations because there was ice below 12 inches of snow.
I grid searched the first location, then the second and onto the third with no luck. We circled back to the second location and I widened my grid area. Within a few minutes I had a multi tone hit on my detector, spotted a portion of the keys and proceeded to surprise Tony!
Check out the video of this recovery;
Tony was very happy to get his guys back!
Thank you very much for your donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! My best fundraising year! Thank you!
I received a phone call from David in downtown Toronto. His Wife Sonya was removing their 2 year old toddler from a stroller. She brushed off the stroller and thought she felt her platinum wedding band fly off into the snow.
After David and Sonya searched for an hour or so then David reached out to me to see if I could help. I advised there were two other metal detectorists registered with “The Ring Finders” directory in Toronto which were much closer than I. I provided some search tips and advised if they weren’t available I could pop down after work the following day as I had a visitor. My visitor was called into work and left immediately. I then called David back to make myself available if the other Ring Finders were not available as I know the misery it would cause and probably a sleepless night ahead for both of them. They took me up on my offer and I left immediately.
I was happy that the crazy Toronto QEW traffic was light and that I had no issues! Toronto traffic can be insane at the best of time non-stop bumper to bumper!
I arrived an hour later and proceeded to the backyard. I could see the backyard was entirely concrete under the snow fully knowing rebar and old metal bits would be and issue. Here I was thinking another ‘quickie’………NOT!!
After 10-15 minutes with the big coil and putting my pin pointer through a workout… I changed out my coil to the small 10” x 5” CoilTek Coil and turned down the sensitivity …. I then re-gridded the area and decided to go towards the pathway into the backyard and BOOM A SOLID 12 on the Equinox and tone was perfect! Even thought David’s platinum wedding band was the same it rang up a 15/16 on my machine!

First I surprised David…. then David went along with me to ask Sonya “another question” bringing her back outside and of course she was happily surprised!
David and Sonya were so thankful for my help and I was grateful for their immediate generous donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! I’m sure if they called one of the other two RingFinders this precious sentimental wedding band would have definitely been recovered either way!!
I received a phone message this morning from a young man Satvir K. of Brampton Ontario.
I called Satvir back and spoke to him. He had shovelled the snow late last night and then proceeded to spread salt on his driveway with his bare hands. When he came into his home he noticed his sentimental wedding band recent made/purchased in India was missing! Satvir went back out to check the snow banks for 3 hours with no success.
Satvir googled lost ring and “The Ring Finders Dot Com’ page came up!
I immediately headed down after speaking with him. Within 5 minutes I located Satvir’s beautiful wedding band at the bottom of the driveway! He and his Wife were so thrilled and very happy!
Here is a video link to the ring recovery!!
I am grateful that another charity donation has come into ‘The Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation’ through my fundraising page! Satvir receives a tax donation receipt!
A western Canada Alberta man named Milton was visiting Wasaga Beach 6, Ontario a few months ago. He was 100-150 yards off shore throwing around a football when his silver coloured tungsten ring slipped off into the water!
I saw a Facebook post on the local Wasaga Beach page and messaged Milton. I advised I was a professional detectorist with The Ring Finders Dot Com and explained what we did and that we were part of a global organization in helping people find their lost belongings. He hired me and I headed out a few days later.
Day 1 was quite rough. 7 hours in the water gridding from shore out to 200’. I ALWAYS go further and wider from where they ‘think’ they’ve lost their ring…especially if a throwing motion was a factor! I had no luck!
Day 2 I decided to try again but go further out…and BINGO, I FOUND IT!!! I came back into shore and face timed Milton through Facebook. Happy Husband & his Happy Wife!!
Check out the video!!
The next day I mailed Milton’s silver coloured tungsten wedding band back to Alberta. He graciously made a donation for my “pay-it-forward campaign” with an on-line donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation. The Foundation then sends a tax receipt! Everyone wins!!
Thank you Milton for entrusting me to recover and return your wedding band!!
Adam & Lindsay from Kingston, ON we’re visiting Wasaga Beach 3 with Family members! The guys were playing with a bounce ball in the water when Adam felt and saw his wedding band fall off his finger into the water. The three guys all started looking to try to see the ring but had no luck.
Lindsay was checking beach goers to see if anyone had swim googles to loan to assist looking for the ring underwater.
Ann Maria and Kaitlin visiting the beach from Collingwood had suggested calling THE RING FINDERS Alison as they had recently saw a post of another ring recovery & return the previous day!
I had been dealing with a blown serpentine belt on my diesel truck and advised I could attend the location in an hours time to assist.
Arrived and discussed the details of how Adam had lost his wedding ring. Decided to complete a circular grid at first but after 6 passes changed to a back and forth grid. After 45 minutes, I had a beauty of a tone.
I had winked to my Friends Heather & Greg (Greg fixed my truck hours before) to restart the video…then the surprise!!
Check out the video!!
Adam was in disbelief!! I could see that he was giving up….but I never give up!
I wish this lovely young couple the very best for the arrival of their first born child in October!! Also, I I am grateful to have another donation coming into the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation for my PAY-IT-FORWARD fundraising efforts!! Using my passion for metal detecting for charity!!
Heather R from Milton, Ontario was recommended by a mutual Friend for me to assist in the recovery of her late Uncle Paul’s lost wedding band. He lost his wedding band approximately 6 or 7 years ago at a dock area of Pike Lake while washing his hands in the water. At the time of the lose they couldn’t find his ring and notched out a mark on the dock.
Heather, Greg & Max picked me up and proceeded promptly to Pike Lake that day.
I found a few items (fishing hook/coins and metal) and with-in 20 minutes I found her late Uncle’s wedding band. Heather proceeded to call her Aunt to verify and it was with happy tears confirmed to be his.
A few days later we all met Heather’s Aunt in Brampton for the joyous return of their now Family Heirloom.
I have myself a great new Friend of Heather and her Family and look forward to going back to Pike Lake (with permission) to clean up their beach!! Labour of Love!
Thank you Heather for you and your Aunt’s charitable donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!! Grateful for your kindness!
Received a phone call from a young man from Malton, Ontario. He was playing volleyball on the weekend with his Friends at the beach volleyball area at Professors Lake Brampton, Ontario when he noticed both his gold plated cross as well las his 14k gold eagle pendant was missing because his large chain was broken. He was heartbroken more the the eagle pendant was missing as is it was a gift from his Aunt.
After obtaining permission from City of Brampton staff to metal detect for the young mans jewellery, I met him there in the early evening. (Lucky I work for COB!!)
I started without him as the skies were getting dark and was worried we would have to leave due to the storm approaching and our personal safety. I started grinding the west beach court….then the east. Within 20 minutes after the young man showed up and advised he was in the south court….we found he precious 14k gold eagle pendant. No luck in finding his small gold plated cross but he didn’t mind.
He was gracious enough to make a donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation Snow Run 2018 Charity via my link!!
I received a phone call while nearing the end of my Summer Vacation week when I received a phone call from Himanshu. He was playing volleyball at the private compound of President’s Choice HQ in Brampton, Ontario. They had weekly volleyball matches. One of his team mates had said “you should take your ring off in case you lose it”…..
He was practicing prior to the match and sure enough…he lost it. I arrived a few hours prior to the start of the first match. Started a grid pattern from the serving line. One half of the court completed…no ring. Lots of clad coins and sharp thin copper wire pieces. Started on the other side of the court…3rd pass and BAAM…there was his 21k Platinum wedding band. Very special to him as it was India gold. We managed to capture the recovery on video!
One happy camper!!!
Himanshu was kind enough to make a donation to my charity “Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation” in which I am sledding in my 9th consecutive year raising donations for men & woman fighting breast cancer!! “PAYING IT FORWARD”…awesome, everyone WINS!!
