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

Jen & Paulo went for a day of sun and fun with their children to the municipal beach at Long Point, Ontario August 15th, 2020.

Paulo caught a football in the water and watched as his 14k white gold wedding band popped of his finger and into the water. Later in the week Jen had googled list ring and TheRingFinder’s website came up. Jen had called me and I explained there was a registered ring finder a great deal closer to the location. Unfortunately he was not available and recommend me!

I proceeded to met Jen, Paulo and kids on August 22nd, 2020 early morning. The waters were quite rough with an undertow. After grid searching a wide area for about 4 hours, they had to head home. I continued gridding a larger area and went back to a middle further out portion to re-grid. No luck.

This past week the weather was getting cooler and work was hectic. So I decided to book a holiday day off and ventured back down to Long Point on my own. With-in 15 minutes on my second pass back to shore I had an 11/12 on the Minelab Equinox 800 detector 6” down! Pulled the wedding band out on the first scoop!!!!

Then the surprise FaceTime call to Jen!! Check out this video!!

Happy to return this wedding ring to it’s rightful owner and grateful for their donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation in which Jen & Paulo will receive a tax receipt!! PAYING-IT-FORWARD 🌸💖🌸 ROCKS!! Everyone wins!!

WIFE LOSES 18k WHITE GOLD and DIAMOND FILLED ENGAGEMENT RING IN THE SAND AT WASAGA BEACH 1, ON 🇨🇦

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

2nd 🇨🇦 CANADA DAY 🇨🇦 Ring recovery request came in just as I was finishing up the Lake of Bay ring recovery!

Lauren had messaged “Hello. I was pointed in your direction in help of finding my lost white gold and diamond ring. July 1 at Wasaga beach area 1. I took it off momentarily and placed it in my sons cap. He then put it on his head and it fell out in the sand, I realized immediately but was unable to find it. It would be in the stretch of beach you see in the photo below. It could be between the water and approx 3/4 of the way to the sidewalk. It may have even stayed in his hat and fell out but we did not leave this area. Please let me know if you can help“

I message Lauren back that I was just cleaning up from a ring recovery in Muskoka and then I would give her a call.

I left the Muskoka area and called Lauren on the phone to get the details. I was on my way but time was of the essence at Wasaga Beach #1! I was crazy jam packed and the heat was incredible! Lucky to have had free parking for the day and found a spot close by!

Unfortunate, she she did not GPS the location but she did have a photo of where they were sitting! That was a huge help!  When I arrived I FaceTimed Lauren as to the location.

When I was speaking with her, a lady beach goer that was sitting beside Lauren came up to me and said “are you looking for what I’m thinking you’re looking for?” and I said “yes I am and I’m the phone with the owner right now!”

The lady assisted by advising me where Lauren’s beach towels were!

One of the other ladies offered to video as I started my grid search. The second target in under 2 minutes I knew it was something sweet! Solid 6 on the Equinox800 and only 2 inches down! I pulled out my pinpointed and cleared the sand away…exposing the ring!

Check out this video of me finding the ring and then FaceTime in Lauren back!!! PRICELESS!!

I FaceTimed Lauren again and put the ring up to the phone! The tears & screams of joy from Lauren and her husband were heard!

I then made a plan with Lauren to meet her on my way home to return her beautiful engagement ring back to her!

Lauren was aware I have a “pay it forward” program on top of my call out fee. They made an extremely generous donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation which goes to help breast cancer patients with their financial support. (Wigs, medications, taxi, daycare, food, rent, etc) Lauren will then receive a tax receipt for the amount!!

Lauren’s smile says it all!!!

 

 

Little Robbie Jr lost his prescription glasses in the snow Brampton, ON

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

A dear Friend and Co-worker Rockin’ Robbie sent me a message last night that his son little Robbie Jr. lost his prescription glasses playing in the snow. Robbie knew I was a detectorist registered with TheRingFindersDotCom and I was successful helping others!

I brought my metal detectors into work and we decided to meet up at lunch break!

Rockin’ Robbie said his son was playing on the pile of snow in the cul-de-sac as well as on the front yard of two homes. His pocket was undone and he thinks the glasses fell out.

I started grid searching with the ExcalibarII on the mini mountain. Then after a car moved in the front of one home I switched over to the Equinox 800. Within two minutes we found little Robbie Jr.’s glasses!! Unfortunately, they were damaged and we had figured the snow blower must have eaten them!! Lucky Robbie Jr. Still has his old pair!

I was happy to help my Friend & Co-worker but sad his Son’s glasses were damaged!

Here’s a video link:

I felt like a kid again standing on top of a snow mountain!!

Alberta man lost his wedding band playing football at Wasaga Beach 6, Ontario

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

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!!

Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Mass & Joanne were at their Friends cottage on beautiful Stewart Lake in Mactier, Ontario in the Township of Georgian Bay in absolutely breathtaking Muskoka Region.

They were enjoying a lovely day on the dock when they heard a click and a clang. Mass realized his 18k yellow/white gold wedding band had slipped off his finger, hit the deck and dropped into the water below.

They searched that day with no luck. They were up early to search the next morning with again no luck. Joanne googled “how to find a lost ring” and “THE RING FINDERS” directory came up. We traded emails throughout the week and set a date and time!

I arrived and shortly after Joanne and the cottage owners arrived! We brought all my gear down and here’s how it went….

It too 22 seconds to hear “that” distinctive gold tone on my Minelab Excalibur2… Then 36 seconds to get safety get under the dock to grasp the wedding band amongst the debris!!

Happy to help this couple out and grateful their charitable donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!! PAYING IT FORWARD!! Thank you Mass & Joanne!

  

 

Young Newly Engaged Couple lose Heirloom 18k Engagement Ring in the waters of Gulliver’s Lake, Hamilton ON 🇨🇦

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

Received a phone call from newly engaged Crystal inquiring about the recovery process of her recently lost 62 year old Heirloom 18k white gold with diamonds that belonged to her late Grandmother in the water at Gulliver’s Lake in Millgrove, Hamilton, Ontario! A popular RV camp ground, water activities, swimmers, beach goers and scuba divers with no motorized boating allowed!

Crystal advised her Fiancé Garrett of what we discussed but Garrett wanted desperately to find the ring himself due to his fun play of throwing his Fiancé into the water. He purchased a detector and wrapped it in plastic. They searched for hours with no luck and decided to call me back and book me for Sunday morning!

With permission granted from the Manager Debbie I arrived to meet them onsite 10am Sunday.

Unfortunately, Crystal felt her engagement ring fly off. They had a 10′ by 10′ exact area but us detectorists know how  trajectory and ring weight can play an important role to determine its path!

With a silty bottom and not too bad visibility I decided an underwater circular grid would be best at 6″ to 8″ depth with my scuba gear, 2 fiberglass poles, high viz yellow line and my Minelab excalibur2 with short dive shaft was set!

I set it up with Garrett that we were going to surprised Crystal as I felt strongly this wouldn’t take long in which it was amazing it took 25 seconds after my initial set up!!! A PERSONAL RECORD FOR ME!!

Check out my YouTube video and surprise!!!

Well, we definitely surprised Crystal to say the least…. BEEP……BEEP and Garrett and Crystal’s Father a sign of relief!!

Happy to help this young couple out on retrieving her beloved late Grandmother’s Engagement ring that meant the world to them and the Family!!

Thank you Garrett for his donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation in my “PAY-IT-FORWARD CAMPAIGN”!! Using my passion for metal/scuba dive detecting to raise much needed funds to breast cancer Patients! Instead of my receiving a “reward” for finding the clients item, I insist the clients makes a donation to my Charity that I’ve Snowmobiles/Volunteered with TGE last 11 of 20 years bow onto Year #12!! Garrett will receive a tax receipt for his donation!! 🌸💖🌸

NEWLYWED LOSES TUNGSTEN WEDDING BAND IN ROUGH WATERS OF WASAGA BEACH, ONTARIO 🇨🇦

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

Gerard was in Wasaga Beach for his Brother’s bachelor party. All of the guys were throwing a football in the water. Gerard dove in the water to try and catch the football. As soon as He came up from the water He noticed his tungsten wedding ring was missing.

Gerard’s heart sunk with immediate panic setting in. After a few hours of looking, he finally gave up.

Gerard called his wife Angellie, to tell her the bad news. After a few minutes, his  wife came across One of my Facebook pages with my “The Ring Finders” blog stories, “Metal Detecting for Charity” and told him to contact her to see if she could help.

I responded immediately to Gerard’s FB PM. After he gave me the details of his lost wedding ring, I contacted some of the other detectorists that were at the location already to see if they could help. They were busy with another ring search and the water conditions were deteriorating.

I advised Gerard that I would drive up to Wasaga the next morning and because he called immediately, I advised him I was confident I had a great chance to recover it.

I arrived very early Sunday morning. Saw some of the other detectorists out and started a very close/tight grid search shoreline to 100’ out before the first sandbar as per Gerard’s perimeters! Four hours later, I had it!!!

I immediately headed back to my truck and decided to call Gerard with the great news that I recovered his wedding band!! I told Gerard his prayers worked and that I found his wedding ring!!!

He said he felt like I won the lottery! The van load of Bachelor patty goers immediately turned around and met with me a short time later.

As soon as I stepped out of my truck we started recording and I was holding up Gerard’s wedding ring!! He couldn’t help but give me a big hug! LOVE THAT!!!!

I advised Gerard because he was a Newlywed that I was forgoing my charge and asked him to “PAY-IT-FORWARD” with a nice donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation’s on-line link with the amount of his choosing! The Foundation will in turn send him a tax receipt!

Gerard thanked me for my hard work, determination, and most of all my kind heart.

Gerard said “Alison is truly an amazing woman and I am forever be grateful to her.” Thank you l!!

I am very honoured to se a very generous donation from Gerard & Angellie was immediately sent in!! It sure made me feel that my efforts were truly gratefully acknowledged!! Thank you so very much Gerard & Angellie!!

I love my passion for this hobby and use it to help others in need!! I have raised over $7,000 in the last 4 years with my metal/scuba dive detecting through The Ring Finders dot Com!!! 98% of the population have never heard of this GLOBAL SERVICE of dedicated detectorists helping others locate lost rings/jewellery/keys/cell phones and many other items!! PLEASE SHARE!!
