On April 10 2018 I was in class and got a call from Matt who just arrived today with his family and they are on vacation. He informs me that he lost his wedding ring while playing in the water with his beautiful daughter. I tell Matt to give me an Hour and a half because my detector is on the other side of the island.  In the meantime while I’m heading out to get my gear I called matt and asked him to pull up google maps and make me a map. I asked him to try and locate the spot where he believes the ring came off and draw a circle on the map to limit my search area. I asked if he could put me in the right area by narrowing my search site as it was 4:30pm and the sun was on its way down. Well, after much traffic I arrive and meet up with Matt. I get to the beach and gear up. After a few passes I get a great tone/reading. I look in my scoop and there it is Matts wedding. I turn to MATT who is looking on the shoreline and ask him ” What kind of wedding band?” Which I knew very well it’s his. He says “it’s a gold wedding band… did you find it?” I tell him to take a look in the scoop and the sheer JOY that came from his response “YES I CANT BELIVE IT!” was very comforting. As we were leaving BOTH very excited I asked MATT… So, what do you think your wife will say? He smiles and says she will be pleasantly surprised! Another recovery with a happy heart! Now you can enjoy the island and have a great vacation! Best wishes and GOD BLESS.

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.

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!

Wedding Ring Lost & Then Recovered

Kayl and Stephanie were visiting their grandparents for a short relief from the winter weather in Chicago. It was a windy cold day but Kyle wanted to get into the gulf waters anyway. He ventured out into the rough water and was just contemplating put his head under the water when he saw is wedding ring of 6 months fall to the bottom of the gulf. He was devastated and started looking for it with his toes. After an hour he gave up and they went home.

They found The Ring Finders site on the internet and contacted Stan Flack. Stan posted their request to the SRARC Ring Finders group and Mike Miller relayed it to Jay and Karen Ganz. They met Kayl and Stephanie at the location and Karen did her best in the rough water to find it but was not successful. Karen rescheduled for the next calm water day and Mike met her in Engle wood. After about 2 hours Mike was lucky enough to find the ring about 8 inches deep.

When Karen contacted Stephanie she could not believe we had found it. They had given up hope. Jay and Karen connected with Kayl and Stephanie’s Grandparents and returned the ring to them. They sent it on to Kaly and as you can see, the result is nothing but smiles.

He lost his wedding ring at the beach.

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.

My Dog Boomer Ate My Gold Ring and Necklase! Stony Plain, Alberta.

I must say in all the years I have been a member of the Ring Finders group this callout gets the top marks in all categories.

Kerri called me yesterday regarding their dog Boomer.  On Boxing day 2017, while Kerri and Travis were visiting family in British Columbia, Boomer found his way into their  bedroom.  Kerri had placed her wedding ring,  engagement ring,  and gold necklace on the night table.   When she returned to the room she found Boomer chewing  on a box of Kleenex,   The ring and necklace was gone and Kerri found one ring on the floor on the other side of the room. Boomer is not your average dog,  he is 120 Lbs Bloodhound,  a big friendly giant.

Kerri was getting worried that the ring and chain was still inside Boomer and asked me if I could check to see if the rings was in him. I told her I could run my detector over him but it would not tell me what was in him and if there was something she would have to take him to the Vet! she also asked if I could scan the Poop bags she had collected over the past 10 days in his dog run I agreed to meet them this morning.

I arrived and met  Travis and Kerri and of course Boomer the Hound.  I scanned Boomer and found nothing,  so onto  the next task! The  Poop bags! On fourth bag my pro-pointer went off and I told Travis this could be something.   I told Kerri to get some hot water and a bucket so we could thaw the bag out and see what was in  there were the rings and neckless all in tack. Lucky for Boomer – no vet and lucky for Travis and Kerri, no bills!

This search will go down in History for me.

Thank you Travis & Kerri.

Husband and Wife had a little disagreement Wife let the ring sail in the wind.

Wife gave me a call after finding me on Ringfinders.

This was a tough one as the ring was pretty small and found up against a sprinkler box which my detector could not get close enough to it,  so actually found it after about an hour with a pinpointer.

Now that the ring is back hoping they are too.
