I received a call from Sheila and she explained to me that she lost her diamond wedding ring in Lake Sammamish,  off a private residential dock. While she was dipping her toe over the edge of the dock to check the water temperature for a swim her loose fitting wedding ring of thirty years slipped off her finger into the lake. She continued to tell me that she could see the ring glistening on the bottom. She them jumps into the lake and retrieved the ring from about thirteen feet below. She had no place to secure the ring as she didn’t want it to fall off her finger again during the swim back so she placed it into her moth.

Watch the video to see the full story unfold:

On her way to shore she was in about chest hight water when she started taking to her friend in the back yard when the ring slipped out of her mouth and back into the lake a second time! At this point her feet had stirred up the silt, boats going by were causing some wakes, she was getting cold and feared she might just keep steeping on the ring burying it deeper. So she noted the area and got out of the water.

She then went on line to find some professional assistance were she found me.

I agreed to assist in the recovery of her ring. Arriving with full dive gear not ever knowing exactly what to expect and how solid the information provided will be this has proven to make these missions much more successful than by simply free diving. Having the proper drysuit to keep warm and conferrable and and redundant air supplies for these types of task take a lot of other issues out of the loop. Of course SCUBA brings with it a whole other required skill set of its own to be done with proper risk management.

Sheila had told me way back in the day there was a lumber mill near the lake and many of their logs are still imbedded in the silt. She also provided a solid landmark that her feet was near one of the planks when she lost the ring the second time. These provided details greatly aided in the recovery effort by firmly marking the target zone of the search efforts.

The search took a bit of time as they sometimes do however I found the ring in the general area under water as Sheila described. 

I proceeded to surprise her with the ring and she was very happy to be reunited once again.

Cheers,

Lost gold ring found at Vanderbilt Beach, Naples, Florida

from Marco Island (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-239-500-7464

While swimming at Vanderbilt Beach on Sunday 4/22/18, Michele suddenly and unexpectedly felt one of her beautiful 14k gold rings come off her finger.  For nearly two hours dozens of people, some from her group and other swimmers nearby, frantically searched the crystal clear water with masks and snorkels, but could not find the lost ring.  Despite incoming tide and increasing wind and surf, Michele did the right thing, she made note of several reference points and calmly remained in place while others sought help and arranged for location services.  Upon my arrival Michele described the ring and we carefully reviewed reference points, both of which made for a quick and successful recovery.  Notwithstanding use of $3k+ in search equipment, I found the ring within seconds, mere inches from where she was and had remained standing.  A picture is worth a thousand words…

Lost Gold Wedding Band Found in Riverchase area of Hoover, Alabama!

from Pinson (Alabama, United States)
Contact: 1-205-283-7292

I received a call from Taylor Schach over the weekend while at the beach for spring break. Spoke with him for about 15 minutes about his wedding band that he lost while doing some yard work to fix the excavations from a few chipmunks. He explained he was working in the yard and believed that he knew the area where he lost it. He stated that he went and rented a metal detector and tried to find it himself. After a bit of searching and no help from the people who he rented the detector from as how to operate it, he only managed to come up with a few clad coins in the yard. He searched the internet and came upon the ring finders site and saw I was in the area and called. I explained that I would be returning home on Sunday and maybe we can meet late Sunday or Monday after I got off work. We settled for Monday because I would be turning late Sunday from the beach.

I made it over to Taylor’s residence and he showed me the areas where he was working and filling in the chipmunks holes and tunnels. He also said that it could have come off in the driveway while playing basketball also and believed that if it did it would be located in the bushes next to the driveway. After planning out how I wanted to do my search, I pulled out the pinpointer and started to check each hole that he filled up with dirt, there was about a total of 10 or so holes that need to be checked. After about 5 minutes I started to get a signal with my pinpointer in a hole that had a tunnel in it that went off at an angle that he had filled in. After scooping it out twice I started to get a signal, after scooping out another five or six times the signal was not in the hole anymore. I turned my pinpointer to the area I was piling up the dirt and there was the signal again. Moving the dirt with the edge of the pinpointer the gold wedding band shined in the sunlight. Taylor was surprised that I found it that fast. He was very happy that I was able to recover his wedding band for him. It was down about 8 inches, down in the chipmunk tunnel. It never gets old to see the expressions on their faces when you tell them you found it and you are able to return their lost possessions to the them.

July 29/17 Thought lost engagement ring in field while taking Family Photos~Caledon, Ontario

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

Received a phone call late in the afternoon from Jarom & Hannah H of Brampton, Ontario.

Church Friends & Friends of recent ring finder client Boris T again recommended me to assist in helping find a lost engagement ring.

The Family had gathered to have Family photographs taken in a beautiful field/pond setting in Caledon, Ontario. Hannah discovered she had lost her engagement ring and was unsure where it came off. I met Jarom at the location and we retraced their steps from the car, down the road where they had walked to the field, the ditch and a large area of the field. NO LUCK. …..2nd attempt, again NO LUCK.

I advised that I could pop over to their home in Brampton after work.

I was very happy to receive a message the THE FING WAS FOUND at home….in the laundry basket!!!

Wonderful news!! One very happy wife….and husband 🙂

Sometimes we don’t always find it….because it isn’t there. GREAT ENDING and a very lovely couple and Daughter xo
