I local girlfriend Sarah had read some of my ring recoveries & returns posted on my Facebook page from The Ring Finders clients.
She asked to see if I could find rings underwater and I advised that I am scuba certified (open water) and have all the gear.
Sarah discussed that a patron of the Private retreat location had lost his wedding band about 4 years ago. She advise that the water is a very cold because it was a spring fed pond.
I gathered up all my gear and scuba tanks. I really love my Minelab Excallibur2 water detector but also brought along a new piece of equipment called the “Scuba Tector”. It’s a small hand held unit for tight locations or rocky/hard to get to spots.
I started at the location of the lost ring and boy was Sarah right….water was freezing the deeper I got. With-in 15 minutes I had a great tone with the Excal2 but due to the low visibility with the sediment I couldn’t locate it. I turned on the Scuba Tector and pulled out the 14k white gold wedding band!! Sarah also mentioned missing Ray Ban sunglasses further over!! I tried for another hour but no luck.
They called the gentleman whom had left his phone # and left a message. The gentleman was now working in Hawaii but was coming back for Canadian Thanksgiving. Unfortunately no update if he’s picked up his ring!!
Heather R from Milton, Ontario was recommended by a mutual Friend for me to assist in the recovery of her late Uncle Paul’s lost wedding band. He lost his wedding band approximately 6 or 7 years ago at a dock area of Pike Lake while washing his hands in the water. At the time of the lose they couldn’t find his ring and notched out a mark on the dock.
Heather, Greg & Max picked me up and proceeded promptly to Pike Lake that day.
I found a few items (fishing hook/coins and metal) and with-in 20 minutes I found her late Uncle’s wedding band. Heather proceeded to call her Aunt to verify and it was with happy tears confirmed to be his.
A few days later we all met Heather’s Aunt in Brampton for the joyous return of their now Family Heirloom.
I have myself a great new Friend of Heather and her Family and look forward to going back to Pike Lake (with permission) to clean up their beach!! Labour of Love!
Thank you Heather for you and your Aunt’s charitable donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!! Grateful for your kindness!
Hi everyone, I had an old friend that was trying to contact me but did not have my number and could not find it because it is not in my name so he decided to just put my name in the search engine and guess what popped up; The Ring Finders, with all of my contact info. When he told me how he found me, I thought I would tell the story. The Ring Finders are everywhere! lol. Too bad he didn’t lose a nice ring that I could have found for him ha ha but at least we got together.
