Contact: 1-403-701-1739

I received a phone call this morning from Norman, he had lost his Platinum Wedding Band and wanted me to go out and do a search for it. He admitted he really wasn’t sure where he lost it but would like to meet me at his home this evening. We agreed on a time, due to the short winter days it was dark out and cold -12c by the time I arrived there. However, I came prepared with a flashlight, Garrett AT PRO Metal Detector, Garret Pro Pointer and warm clothing. When I knocked on the door Norman answered immediately, he had obviously been waiting anxiously for me to arrive so that we could start the search. He explained again how the ring could be on his front drive or where he parked his car on the street or the Light Rail Transit Parking Lot or at work. Since we are already at his home that’s where we started. I gridded the front driveway and only got signals from the re-bar under the cement, but since I had set up the machine to sound clearly on Platinum or high carat gold I easily discarded those signals. After about 10 minutes the driveway was done with no sign of the ring and so I concentrated on the public sidewalk between where Norman’s car was parked on the road and the property, while Norman went through the interior of the car searching it with a flashlight in hopes it may be inside. Still no luck, I asked Norman to move his car so that I could access the area underneath and around, you see, cars are mostly metal so they sound off loudly and mask any other metals close by. Once the car had been moved I scanned the area in front of the vehicle the first pass nothing but junk but the second pass I got a good sharp signal in the range I was looking for, I scraped away the packed down snow with my Garrett Retriever, (across between a pick and a rake but no bigger than a hammer). I caught a glimpse of the ring and picked it up. I exclaimed to Norman, “this a good signal, it’s heavy but not likely your ring” (wink wink) once I passed him the snow-laden ring he excitedly announced it was his ring. We were both very happy. Norman, because he thought the ring was gone forever and me because I got to return another smile. Just look at that smile. Thanks Norman for the generous reward.

Happy To Get Ring Back

Lost Platinum Diamond Wedding Ring .. Westwood, CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

 

Laycee called me 11-3-15 four days after losing her diamond wedding band. It was custom made with 3 diamonds from her grandmother’s ring and the platinum setting was designed by her husband. “Irreplaceable ”
She could only tell me that it was lost sometime during the family annual Halloween party at her house.
After spending the last four days thoroughly searching the house and the backyard. Laycee and her husband Jacob discussed renting a metal detector to check the lawn and the planters. While searching online they came upon our directory of metal detector specialists. Calling me with a few questions about how service, we set up a time that I could meet them at the house the next morning.
I met them early as they both had things to do later in the day. We talked about what activities Laycee had been doing that may have caused the loss of the ring. It had been a busy day preparing for the party and doing hosting. She did remember showing her niece how to do cart wheels on the lawn..
I started on the lawn which was dried up, because we have a drought in So. Calif. with watering restrictions. The grass was sparse and they had searched it several times. The lawn area was only 40ft.x40ft. so it didn’t take much time to grid it with my CTX 3030. Just as I reached the last grid pass I heard a good signal, looking down in plain view, I could see the ring in the dried gray grass.
I went back to the house calling Laycee to the door giving her the good news. She was in shock, telling me that this was the happiest she has been in a long time. It was an emotional time for her, even as I left she was still amazed that it was not lost forever.. I love helping people find missing sentimental keepsakes.
