Within a few hours I had it back to him…Very grateful for getting it back and added another friend that will be promoting me and Ring Finders!!!  This was a totally different scenario and I was truly blessed to be able to get it back to him….

Lost Gold Diamond Wedding Band Set Recovered in Nottingham, Maryland!

from Baltimore (Maryland, United States)
Contact: 1-410-215-7826

I received a call back on the 18th of March from a woman who was positive she lost her wedding set in her back yard while doing some spring cleanup with her husband. Despite searching through the leaves for hours, they were unable to locate either of the rings. They also decided to go out and purchase a metal detector and give that a try. They quickly realized if you are not proficient and experienced with a detector, attempting to use one on the fly leads to frustration. I was able to meet them at their home that very day (Sunday) and immediately began my search once they showed me the probable areas where the rings might be. After about 20 minutes……SUCCESS!

The rings(the one in the picture above is her engagement ring) were not too far from each other and were up close to a shed in the yard. To complicate things, there were spare railing pieces leaned up against the shed making the “hiding place” perfect, but they couldn’t escape me!

The rings are now back where they belong with their very happy owner!

Metal detecting excitement in Allentown, Reading and Central Pennsylvania

from Reading (Pennsylvania, United States)
Contact: 1-610-207-8677

After a long winter season, I am excited to get back to metal detecting. While doing some research this winter, I came across the RingFinders.com website. After reviewing the service, I immediately knew I had to join. Because I thoroughly enjoy making people happy and I have been metal detecting for years, I knew this would be a perfect fit for me.

It began last summer when I was asked to find a friends wedding ring after loosing it in a field when he was going down a water slide. After about twenty minutes of searching with my ATPro,  I got a great hit and found his ring. It was so exciting to see his expression that it just made my day. I am now working on finding another ring that was lost last summer.

As a retired Air Force veteran, I am available almost anytime to travel and find your lost treasures. A potion of any monetary rewards that I receive will be donated to my church or the Crohns & Colitis Foundation. I look forward to the opportunity of reuniting people to their lost treasure in Central and Eastern Pennsylvania and beyond.

Contact: 1-808-699-0521

Aloha,

On Saturday March 10th 2018 I noticed on Craigslist a lost Gold necklace and ring which was LOST at Waimea Bay on the North Shore of Oahu. I was previously there hobby hunting but in the water earlier that morning. So, I replied to the post and I got in touch with Jessica. Jessica was more than happy to give me the info needed so i could narrow the search area as it is 9:45 in the evening and visibly would be poor. I packed up the equipment and kissed the wife and kids good night. I arrived at Waimea bay and start the search. almost 2 hours into the search and after many coins and rubbish I FIND THE JEWELRY! I was so excited to text Jessica while standing on the shoreline for a meeting the very next day. She agreed and we met up in Salt lake Where I was able to return her precious items. This hunt was very spontaneous and yet Successful. Thank you Jessica for allowing me to reunite your MISPLACED ITEM… Happy to find it but excited its back in the rightful owners hands. Below is a clip of the journey!!!

ALOHA…

Just a Bag o’ Leaves – Valley Forge Lost Wedding Ring

from Downingtown (Pennsylvania, United States)
Contact: 1-717-314-2078

Unfortunately with all the telemarketers calling, I usually let my calls go directly to voicemail and if they leave a message, I know it’s usually not a salesperson. Well one of those calls was from David. He lost his wedding ring bagging up leaves; he was pretty sure it was in a compost collection bag with a bunch of leaves. Piece of cake, this is going to be an easy one! 

It’s always difficult to gauge the traffic around Philly, so I like to leave a tad sooner – better early than late I say. And this was the case here, I arrived about 15 minutes too early and received no answer at his door, fortunately David was right on time. After some quick introductions we got down to business. David told me the story of how he was bagging his leaves and when he was pretty sure that his ring when he lost his wedding ring, as it had slipped off like that before. We tried to retrace his steps the day he lost his ring and he showed me all the spots in his yard, where he work, but hopefully the lost ring was in one of six bags of leaves.

I saw the bags sitting in his garage and they were even numbered. David numbered them in order that he remembered bagging them. I was ready to get to work and find this ring; this should be done in a few minutes. I was thinking to myself that I wished they were all like this – nice dry conditions, not too cold, dry leaves in bags, this is great!

First I moved the bags out to a clean patch of grass, so that I had no metallic interference. I then started to scan all around the bags, tip them over and check the bottoms…which one contained the ring? Well, none of them did and that’s when that “easy peasy” feeling left me. I proceeded to empty one bag of leaves, as I had a hit, spread them out and detected them, but it was a false signal. So I had to regroup and start on Plan B, the yard. Things did not look so rosy anymore, but who ever said finding a lost item was easy. 
I grabbed my rucksack and headed over to the front yard, nothing left to do but execute the classic grid pattern and mark them with my little orange flags. I set my detector to discriminate out most other metals, except for gold. On my detector, the Garrett AT Pro, unfortunately this setting also includes bottle caps, pull tabs and those annoying little aluminum snippets from house siding. You really have to listen to the quality of the tone, someday I’ll get a fancy detector. I received a few hits, although some were good, they were too deep. I always want to dig them, but since I am here on a service I had to pass them by – you never know what else lies down below. 

The daylight was fading fast, so I had to pick up the pace. Then, right near where David said to look, I had a sweet sounding hit; even before I bent down I could see the glint of gold as I moved the blades of grass to one side with my coil! SUCCESS!!! It was a nice sized ring, still very clean and polished.

David was happy with the recovery and I was relieved that everything had worked out in the end. I am often just as disappointed and frustrated as the people who hired me, when I cannot recover their lost item. I love to see the smiles on their faces when I can show them the recovery – which usually hold great sentimental and or monetary value.

We talked for a bit afterwards and I found out that David used to fly on the same helicopter I work on – the CH-47, aka the Chinook. He told me one particular exciting story of a Chinook ride during his tour in Vietnam; I enjoyed relaying his experience to my coworkers.

I am also very grateful for his generous finder’s fee, which came just in time for the holidays and ended my Ring Finder’s work for the year on a high note.

Lost Platinum Wedding Recovered in Towson, Maryland!

from Baltimore (Maryland, United States)
Contact: 1-410-215-7826

Early last month I was contacted by Rodney. I was able to help him recover his lost wedding band back in 2014. Unfortunately he was in need of my assistance once again. He had lost the same ring except this time it was lost in a different area and under different circumstances. The good news is we were once again successful in locating it! I’ll let Rodney tell you the story in his own words…..

 

It was a cold evening in December and I was attending a holiday party with family and friends.  I stepped outside to assist the host with some bags and in the process my wedding ring fell off into the snow in his front lawn.  I searched with flashlights that evening but was unable to locate the ring.  The next day I assumed we would have better luck and returned to my friend’s house to search for the ring as we knew it was in a very small area in the front lawn.  We crawled around the area digging and clawing for hours at the ground but were unsuccessful so I knew it was time to call in the experts.  I had used Jim’s service a few years back and was confident that if he could come out he would be able to locate the ring.  I reached out to Jim and we agreed to meet at the location a few days later.  When we arrived I explained the situation and the area where the ring was lost.  Jim got his metal detector out to begin to search.  Within a few minutes he was able to locate the ring within the area I showed him.  I am so thankful for Jim and his ability to assist with locating lost items.

Thanks Again Jim!

Fort Myers Beach — Pendant Found & Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

This nice young man called us after losing his rose gold pendant in the ocean.  While throwing frisbee on the sandbar at Fort Myers Beach, the chain around his neck broke allowing the pendant to fall into the water below.

As the chain and pendant had been passed down to his father and then to him, it had great sentimental value.  He began searching the Internet and came across the ring finder website.  After reading our many success stories, he gave us a call and we made arrangements to meet the next day.

Upon arrival, he walked out with us in the water to the top of the sandbar.  (When he lost the pendant he made sure to pick out landmarks to identify the general area–which is very helpful in search and recovery)  He pointed out the area where he thought he lost it and then headed back to shore so we could begin our search.  Within about twenty minutes we were successful in locating the missing pendant just a few feet away from where he thought he had lost it!

Lost man’s tungsten wedding ring found in Mead WA

from Spokane (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-509-263-8995

Yet another snow covered car steals a man’s wedding ring. That man Jared, was just closing the door to his car and with the slam of the door he also heard the ting of his ring hitting the door. Thinking the ring couldn’t have gone far, he and his wife looked for an hour. After not succeeding, Jared took to his computer to find a metal detector to buy. Low and behold the internet led him to the Ring Finders and so begins my latest Ring Finders tale. I got an email from Jared about his ring and dawned my snow bibs and took off to his house. The car that stole Jared’s ring was still parked in the spot where he had lost the ring. So knowing a thing or two about how conductive cars are I stayed away from the car and grid searched around the door he had closed. “The ring is being hidden by the car” I told him. He moved the car backwards but still no ring, he moved the car forwards and then I heard the sweet sound of the lost but now found ring. I said ” I bet this is it”, I swept the snow with my foot and Jared’s ring landed in front of him. He was wearing a smile when he bent down to pick it up and an even bigger smile with his ring back on his finger.
