AUZZIE LOSES ENGAGEMENT RING OFF DOCK PARRY SOUND, ON

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Received a text and subsequent telephone call from Holly and Australian Sheila. Holly has been visiting Ontario to help a dear Friend going through brain cancer. Previous weekend they were at a cottage on Rankin Lake in the beautiful Parry Sound area. Holly had taken both her engagement ring and wedding band off and tied them on her hair elastic then wrapping them around her cell phone. She picked up two oars and before she knew it saw them fling off her cell phone onto the deck. She found her wedding band on the dock but could not locate her white gold engagement ring.

Holly called a number of “ring finders” in a panic and took the first one available out of the Barrie area. Unfortunately, her engagement ring could not be located. She was again in a panic mode as she was heading home to Australia in a weeks time. Holly was extremely upset she called me again. We had made a last minute plan but had to cancel with the severe weather and tornado in eastern Ontario and Quebec with heavy damages. Upon speaking again mid-morning she had mentioned her return home and was desperate. I then finished packing my truck and said “LETS DO THIS – BE THERE IN 3 HOURS”.

We arrived at the cottage location, brought all the gear down and I proceeded to do a short grid from 4′ out from dock in and under. I decided not to do the area under the deck with a rock crib which is very difficult even though I also brought along my Detecnix pin pointer for that spot. Closer I was to shore after 10 minutes with 2 pull tabs, then a nail….there was the strong distinctive tone on the Minelab Excalibur 2!!! At this point I had a snorkel mask on without the snorkel as I left it in my truck. Holly was heading up to my truck to retrieve the snorkel and I said “wait a minute”…

After a few handfuls there was her beautiful engagement ring!! B=I=N=G=O!!

Here’s the video *******

We were both excited. She really didn’t think I was going to find it but she flies home a very happy lady.

I didn’t accept a reward for my “Pay-it-Forward” campaign for a charity donation (Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation) because I consider Holly an “EARTH ANGEL” for being here for a month looking after her dear Friend with cancer. I will Pray for her Friend!!! I was given an invitation if I ever head to the “LAND DOWN UNDER”….Sure going to consider that offer!!

I have already advised Holly of another awesome ring finder in Australia “Jean Williams”!!

Great to meet ya Shiela “Holly”!! Cheers and safe travels back home!!

  

Man loses wedding band in waters of Pike Lake, Minto, Ontario

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Received an online message from Jeff R of Brampton inquiring about the ring finders services.

Jeff was swimming with his 2 Son’s at Pike Lake. He was lifting one Son up onto the floating raft and he watched his 14k white gold wedding band slip off and fall into the waters below. Jeff went into Pike Lake office to inquire if they knew anyone that could help find his wedding band. The office staff suggested to call/message me as I had helped find another lost wedding band the previous year.

I advised Jeff that I charge to go out with my scuba gear and that when I find the clients item I ask them to “Pay-it-forward” in making a charitable donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation in which I snowmobile for. Jeff accepted my terms. Unfortunately, Jeff had to work but I was very fortunate that 2 great Friends from the ring find at the same location last year Heather & Greg K were available to assist in safety spotting for my dive. Heather was also kind enough to do a “Live” Facebook feed!! They have been great Friends every since that day!!

After 5 minutes with my Minelab Excalibur 2, approximately 17′ depth in the murky waters below I had a solid wonderful tone and BINGO…there was Jeff’s ring. He had given me the identifying marks and happy to confirm it was his!!

Here’s a link TO THE VIDEO;

I finally met up with Jeff this past week with his lovely wife a brand new baby Girl. Very happy to assist in returning his beloved blessed wedding band. Jeff mentioned his hand felt naked without it and was very happy to have his wedding band back on his finger.

Pleasure to meet this lovely young Family and honoured to help return Jeff’s wedding band!!

Had a message come in through the ring finders site from Ellen after she had google lost ring.

Ellen & Stephen was recently married on their lovely property by the waters of Port Carling, Ontario. She had asked her Son Andrew to be the Best Man and surprised him with his late Grand Father’s wedding band. After the nuptials, Andrew decides to go for a swim to cool down but the ring had slipped off his finger to the murky bottom. Two days later he advised his Mother the devastating news. I met Ellen & Stephen two days later on the property. They had advised the ring was in 3′ to 4′ of water… it was just over 5′ up to my ears. I had the tone with my Minelab Excalibur 2 in just 5 minutes but it took another 8 minutes to scoop the ring out between sticks and boards.

This sentiMental Heirloom 10k white/14k yellow late Grandfather’s wedding band is back were it belongs…with FAMILY !! Pleasure to meet this Family and thanks to

Visiting Family in Ontario Man loses wedding band in the waters of Georgian Bay, ON

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

I received a Facebook message from a City of Brampton co-worker Jayne L that her Vancouver, British Columbia Cousin Joel W was in town visiting Family back in Ontario. The Family gathered at their Mother’s home in The Blue Mountains, Thornbury, Ontario.

Joel and the Family were having a great time. He was out in Georgian Bay on the paddle board when he suddenly fell off. Joel watched his tungsten wedding fall off his finger to the depths below approximately 350′ from shore.

A few weeks passed and Jayne and her Mother (Carolyne’s Sister) were up visiting her Aunt Carolyne, (Joel’s Mother). Aunt Carolyne told them what happened to Joel’s wedding band. Jayne immediately advised her Aunt about her co-worker Alison that is registered with The Ring Finders and does land and water ring searches. Jayne left me that message to contact her Aunt ASAP.

I called Carolyne the next morning and made arrangement to be at her location in a few hours after getting my scuba tanks filled in Parry Sound.

Here’s a link to the video *****  https://youtu.be/cTHhkm4icp0

 

The underwater scuba detecting ring recovery took approximately 50 minutes. Much to the astonishment of Carolyne it was pure joy as that day August 13th was Joel & Victoria 7th wedding Anniversary!!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY. #OutOfTheDogHouse

Man lost 18k white gold latched wedding band Farlain Lake, Penetang, ON

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

I received a message from Laura M whom was visiting here Family cottage on Farlain Lake, Penetang, Ontario. Here Husband and 2 Sons were visiting the Family and were flying home to Calgary, Alberta soon. She asked if I was able to locate in 8′ waters with a murky bottom. I quickly replied I could and was available immediately after work.

Severe thunderstorms had rolled in Ontario that afternoon. I had just finished another ring find in the water and the rain came down. I arrived at the cottage, met the Family and brought all the gear down to the bottom. Turns out her Brother-in-Law lost his gold wedding band over 10 years ago as well.

I had sent a message earlier in the day to mark the location with a rock and floating jug to cut down the area to search. The thunder and lightening started so we waited it out for about 10 minutes…and proceeded to gear up. I also brought a magnet for the kids to try magnet fishing….they loved it!

WOW, it was a very silty bottom with 6-8″ of muck so hard to keep a good grid pattern direction. Just over an hour later…..my trusty Minelab Excalibur 2 toned off with a sweet crisp tone. BINGO BANGO!!! There is was!!

Here is a link to the video *******

I started to look for the 2nd lost wedding band of the Brother-in-Law but the darkness was setting in! I’ll be back!! Very happy clients before they head home to Calgary, Alberta! Lovely Family!!

Newly engaged Bride-to-be Keeanna was hanging out with great Friends at a cottage on Cognashene Bay in Penetang (Midland) area when her stunning 14k white gold 1.42k diamond engagement wedding band fell onto the dock and through a crack into the water below.

They had a neighbour who was a diver come over to try to find it but no luck. Lucky they googled and found The Ring Finders and contacted me.

I met her Parents Michele & Jaimie G and the Penetang Bay for boat pick up. What great people….the winds and waves were fierce for a 15-20 minute boat ride. Geared up and jumped in. I had already arranged with the parents for a video for the surprise (below link)

The depth was about 8-9′ but the bottom was mushy & murky….I used the “Scuba Tector” to start as they mentioned is was pretty clean bottom. After pulling some coins, nails, a lead weight, Justin’s West Jet name tag LOL, out I thought best I pop up and grab my Minelab Excalibur2….2nd tone BINGO BANGO!!! and the surprise begins…..

Wishing Keeanna & Mike a very happy wedding June 2019!! AWESOME CLIENTS XO

 

Canada Day Man lost wedding band at Wasaga Beach, ON

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Received an email through the ring finders late evening on Canada Day that Aneta & Tom had been building sand castles and throwing a little football around the waters of Wasaga Beach. The Wasaga Beaches are 14kms of fresh water beaches 1 through 6.

I met them there after being in the water at Wasaga Beach #1 for approximately 11 hours with the Minelab Excalibur2 and my T-rex sand scoop.

We walked aways to the location of the sand castles area where they were sitting. I widened my grid area and then decided to head into the water. Aneta went back to my truck for my headlamp to make the search easier. My first target about mid calf deep was Tom’s 14k white golf wedding band approximately 30′ from shore!! So as I normally do….I waited till she arrived back, started a video and proceeded back out to retrieve it….that was a quick one. A very happy couple as the wedding band is very sentimental. The couple graciously sent in a donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Found!!

Here’s the late night video…

 

 

 

 

Wedding ring lost prior to wedding ceremony Richmond Hill Country Club, ON

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Received a text message from Jing & Mark S for a request to assist to find a custom platinum wedding band that was unfortunately lost prior to the wedding ceremony of his best Friend of 23 years. Mark was the Best Man at a wedding ceremony on the lovely ground of the Richmond Hill Country Club. Mark had written explicit details of the days events leading up to the wedding ceremony. This was key in retracing there steps and actions. Prior to the actual wedding ceremony, the photography asked all the wedding party to remove any items such as phones from the pockets. Mark had removed both the Bride’s and Grooms custom wedding bands crafted in China from the jewellers boxes. Mark felt that a number of times he removed his cell phone from his jacket pocket and at those locations the wedding band could likely be at any one of the spots.

We proceeded down the pathway in which the wedding parties travels in golf cart, up over a bridge and then onto a open grass area where the photo’s had taken place. I used my trusty Minelab Excalibur 2 on land and that amazing tone of platinum on “discrimination” makes my detector SING!! Within 5 on the open grass area that wonderful tone sounded off!! I spotted the very small sized platinum wedding band, threw done my machine (gently of course) and raised my arms. Mark & Jing thought I was upset with them as they were standing on either side of the area as I was using them for my grid markers. Both kept moving about. I then started recording for the ‘surprise’.

Here’s the video for the return

The “Best Man” came through for his Best Friend the Groom and his new Wife!!
