I was in Hampton Bays just finished finding an I-Phone. I was checking email and messages and saw a text from Jacqueline. She said that last night while taking out the garbage that her ring came off and was in the snow.  I go to directions to the house and headed over there.  While in route I called her and said was on my way, she said that wasn’t home but working in the city.  She told the area that the ring was lost in and that I should call if there was a problem.

There was a lot of snow and ice by the garbage cans as well as a lot of bushes. I searched the area with no luck. I then started in the bushes and they were over grown a little so It was hard getting the detector head into them. After moving the branches in different direction I finally got a signal like ring. on my hands and knees I dug out the ring.  Back at the car I called Jacqueline and told her I found the ring. She said that she would not be out to the house till the weekend.  We agreed to hide the ring in a spot that she could find easily.

“Salty” Ring Recovery. Sleepy Hollow, Illinois

  • from Rockford (Illinois, United States)

I received a email last night around 8 pm from Teresa asking if I was able to search for her husband Jake’s wedding band that he lost while he was throwing salt down in their driveway. I contacted her the next morning as soon as I seen the email. I assured her that it shouldn’t be a problem and that I was willing to come take a look for it.  So immediately packed up my gear and made the 30 minute drive over to their house.  After a quick introduction and explanation of the prior days shoveling and salting, (which is how we believe the ring came off), while throwing the salt. So I grabbed my detector (Equinox 800) and pinpointer and began searching the snow piles along the edge of the driveway.  I made one trip down the driveway searching along the side of the shoveled snow pile.  Then I went on the opposite side of the pile, and about halfway back down the driveway, I got a repeatable 17-18 signal. After sticking the pinpointer into the snow I could tell that there was something in the snow pile. After moving a handful of snow I seen the glimmer of gold!!

Took about 10 minutes or less!

Happy New Year Jake & Teresa!
