I got called out to day to New Brighton in SW Calgary to find a Gold Chain and Pendant. When I got there Jay showed me were him and his brother had been rough housing out in the yard last night.
Unfortunately before I got there he had taken a snow shovel and tried looking for the chain & pendant distributing the snow around the yard. I set to work griding the area and searching for a likely signal but found nothing in the area he had indicated. I expanded my search outside the designated area and got a loud 65, clearing the snow away I recovered the Pendant which Jay quickly took from my hand saying he thought he would never see it again. I still had to locate the chain. I completed the rest of the yard and re-scanned it one more time in the opposite direction but still nothing.
Puzzled, I asked Jay if he had checked the coat he was wearing because sometimes the heavier pendant falls off but the broken chain can catch on clothing. He said, he was pretty sure he had checked, so I went back to detecting hoping for the best. Jay had disappeared for awhile, then called me to say he had taken another look at the coat and Found the chain in the hood of he coat.
I love helping folks find their lost precious items.

Today I had a search for a solid gold soccer ball pendent that a friend from work lost 5 years ago at a soccer field in South Vancouver.
The story was that it was given to him by his farther 30 years ago. Dean is a goal keeper and never takes his lucky pendent off. While training at Killarney High School 5 years ago, he was making a save and the chain broke and the pendent fell off into the grass but he felt the chain in his sweeter…
He was devastated! He searched for hours with a flash light as it was getting dark but couldn’t find his golden soccer ball. He gave up the search like most people do and tried to put it behind him.
It was Friday night and we were working on a film set and I saw his pendent and commented on the gold soccer ball. I used to play a bit back in the day, Dean told me the story about the one that he lost and how much it meant to him…
My first question was where did you lose it? He told me and I told him I’d take a look for it, today I spent 5 hours searching but couldn’t find it… However I found a Gold Saint Christopher pendent the size of a Canadian Quarter. Now I have to try and find the owner of that…
I believe that everyone’s jewellery has a story attached to it and what I do is try and find the owner and return it so that the story can continue…
I also met up with Dean at the end of the day and he showed me the area that he remembered losing the pendent. He drew me a map of the area at work, after 5 hours of searching I was in the wrong area! Oh well, I found the pendent and now I have a new search to see if I can find the owner. It was 4 inches deep in the ground so I believe this was there for many years.
I’ll be searching the new area for his golden soccer ball tomorrow. I hope I can find it so I can write a part 2!
I love my job!
