I was called by a 13 year old girl who lost her rings while walking her dog. She had only received them a few weeks earlier as a test by her mother to see if she could be responsible. She lost them in her yard and just couldn’t find them on her own. She finally confessed to her mom that she had lost them. Her mom then made her daughter find a resource to locate them (with a little help), and she found me. I arrived at her home, got the information on where she had been walking, and started my search. They had not mowed their lawn for fear of hitting them, so I had to deal with taller grass. After about an hour, I found them. Liz was so excited she started crying. She was so thankful for finding the rings that she didn’t want to ever wear them again. I told her if she got the size checked, she would be able to wear them again. She was excited to get that done as soon as possible.
Joe Pfifer lost his 14 karat white gold wedding band while doing yard work. Something as simple and mundane as removing dried up leaves from the shrubbery in front of their home on a cool spring morning had caused Joes ring to slip from his finger.
Joe had tried searching for the ring visually and even researched on-line on how to search for lost rings which is how he found “Ring Finders”. And with the thought of somebody who knew what they were doing as opposed to Joe giving it a go on his own, Joe contacted me.
When I met up with Joe he explained what he was doing and the location of his efforts to clean up the yard. Within a few short minutes I had recovered Joe’s ring from under the tree bark mulch that was hiding it from sight. This search area was being hindered by metal edging, but when you know your machine interference from such can be minimized.
Ring recovered on March 25, 2011.
Joe happy to be holding his ring once again
