found ring Toronto

Gold pendant found.!!! Toronto

  • from North York (Ontario, Canada)
Contact:

I had a call on Thursday the 18th about a lost necklace pendant that a young couple had lost.

They had been taking a video in snow covered parking lot in downtown Toronto when the boyfriend lost the pendant, an Egyptian Ankh pendant that was custom made.
When they watched the video they took, you could clearly see the ankh on his necklace for a few minutes and then he turned around for a minute and when he turned again and started to walk away, the necklace was hanging around his neck but the ankh was no longer attached.
They searched in the dark for it from 9:30pm to 1:30 am with no luck as it was now buried in snow somewhere in the lot.
I met them both on Saturday morning and had them show me what had happened two nights earlier.
I grabbed my gear and tried to get lucky walking a loose grid pattern for ten minutes with no luck.
I went back to my car and grabbed my wooden gridder and started making grid lines in the snow with it. Gridding is a pain to do and it’s time consuming but it’s the only way to ensure you cover every square inch of your search area.
After about an hour, I decided to search a little bit out of the area
where the pendant should be and got a great signal right next to a sewer grate, maybe a foot away.
After pinpointing the area and removing a few inches of snow, I could see the bottom of the ankh.

The gentleman was extremely lucky his pendant didn’t fall into the sewer.


I called them over with the good news and they were over the moon.
We took some pics, talked for a few minutes and I was on my way.
Really happy I was able to help this nice young couple out.

Take care,

Rose gold wedding band found.!! Toronto

  • from North York (Ontario, Canada)

Greg called me yesterday about his lost rose gold wedding band.

He told me that on Thursday, Feb 18, he went out to the street to brush some snow off his car as he and his wife were going out for a few hours.
Greg used his gloved hands to brush off most of the snow and then pulled his gloves off.
What he didn’t know was that his ring had slipped off inside of his left glove.
He removed his gloves and started to shake the snow off his gloves and then heard a “clink” but didn’t think anything of it.
So, Greg and his wife went out for a bit and when they got home he noticed he was no longer wearing his ring. Then, the “clink” he had heard made sense now.
His ring must have flown out of his glove and hit the passenger side of the car.
This meant that his ring probably bounced off the car and onto the sidewalk.
Greg told me that most people that live on the street shovel the snow in front of their homes from the sidewalk onto the street.
Some people however shovel it onto their front lawns if they have one.
I was able to meet Greg this morning in downtown Toronto and had him reenact exactly what had happened on Thursday.
After getting the full story with the actions I started with all the snow shovelled snow onto the front lawns. Nothing. He moved his car from the spot in the street and I searched everything that was underneath it. Still nothing.
I moved my car and searched under it and still heard nothing but crickets.
Finally, the car parked in front of me left and I started to search under where it was.
30 seconds later, I got the signal we were waiting for.

Sure enough, there was Greg’s ring in the street, three feet from the curb in a pile of slush.


After recovering the ring, Greg and I chatted for a few minutes, took a few pics and I had to leave to go to another search.

Really happy I could help out today Greg. It’s was a pleasure to meet you and I’m glad your ring is back where it belongs.

Take care,

Mark Ellis
