Canandaigua NY, Wedding band lost in yard, FOUND

from Syracuse (New York, United States)
Contact: 1-315-652-6996

Wednesday June 12th.  I received a call from a James (last name withheld) who lives in Canandaigua NY.  Yesterday James was doing some yard work and he walked over the edge of his grass to throw some twigs etc. into the woods.  When he threw the twigs his wedding band of 55 years came flying off and into the high grass along the edge of his yard.  He actually saw the ring as it flew into the high grass.  James quickly realized that he had to cut down the high grass if he was to have a chance of finding his ring.  He went back to his garage and the only thing that he had to cut the grass was a small hand held grass sheers.  So he went back with those small grass sheers and started cutting grass and looking for his wedding band.

 

James worked somewhere around 2 hours cutting, clearing and searching an area that was about 10 x 10 that he was sure his ring was because he had watched the ring fly off his hand and land in this general area.  It was getting dark so he called it a day and went into the house to tell his wife the bad news.  At this time both James and his wife was counting the ring as being lost and they would have to bear the expense of purchasing a replacement ring.

 

All night long James was thinking about his lost ring so in the morning before his wife arose, James searched his phone using the following phrase. “ How do I find someone who would search for my LOST RING”.  Now Goggle uses logarithms in their searching and those two works are the key.  James was pleasantly surprised when my name popped up along with my phone number.  He called me and we set up a time for me to search for his lost ring.

 

I arrived and I started asking all the questions that I need to better locate his ring.  I also asked permission to film him and the search, but James was not happy about that, so I was not able to get any video of the search.  I think James was just a little embarrassed that he had lost his ring.

 

James showed me that area and the place where he had hand cut the tall grass.  It was down a slope, into the woods.  There was tall grass between the edge of his lawn and the area that he had cut then the “cleared area” and then into the woods. From where he had cleared the grass and also into the woods the forest floor was a tangle of sticks, grass clumps etc.  A perfect place for the ring to hide.

 

I fired up my detector and started working the tall grass on the side hill that he had not searched between the edge of the lawn and the cleared area.  Although I did get two “hits” in this area, the tones on my machine told me that these were most likely not his ring.  Now I searched his cleared out area but did not get a hit, so I stated working deeper into the woods on a straight line that he had saw his ring flying when it came off.  Just off his cleared area but into the woods deeper, I got a nice solid low tone that most times are gold rings.  I used my pin pointer and moved it around and down into the sticks etc. that are on most forest floors.  Yes it was his ring, but his ring was down into all those sticks and leaves 3 to 4 inches.  I doubt that if James had worked this area he would have found his ring as it had already worked it’s way though all the “flotsam” on the ground right down to the soil.  Total search time – less them 10 minutes.

 

James was happy, his wife was happy, and yes I was happy.

 

I wish all searches were this easy

Lost ring found at Mission Beach

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Delaney took her engagement ring off before playing volleyball (a wise move) and handed it her friend Haley to put it in Delany’s bag for safe keeping. Haley dutifully place the ring inside the bag on top of Delaney’s jacket. Later in the day, Delaney grabbed her bag and hurried off to meet some friends down the beach. Once she met up with her friends, she remembered the ring and searched through her bag, but, the ring was gone. What to do? Well, she called friends for help and searched the web. I got the call, listened to a few particulars, and headed out to see about getting that 5 month old engagement ring back on her finger. Parking is always “fun” down by Mission Beach this time of year. Nothing close to where they were, so, I had to park in a lot a ways to the north. As I was walking to the location, a guy rides up from behind on his bike and asks of I’m there to find a ring. I tell him that hopefully I am, and then I notice that he has a detector too! He got the word also about the lost ring. We both see Delaney waving to us and we head over to meet her. Turns out they had a metal detector too and someone else in her group was also searching the sand! Okay, 3 people looking for this ring in the dry sand, that shouldn’t take long. Wrong! All three of us gridded the area where the bag was sitting when the ring was placed inside. We expanded out in all directions and made a few passes down the beach in the direction Delaney ran to meet her friends. Problem was, that exact location could not be determined. I could be anywhere from a few hundred feet away to several hundred yards, and maybe in the dry sand, maybe in the wet. That made that search area HUGE! We’re talking many football sized areas.

After a couple of hours without success, it started to get dark, windy and cold. Without knowing the exact area where she searched her bag, it was anyone’s guess at to where to search. We called it a night and I took a bit more info to mull over, and told Delaney I would keep the info and a photo on file should the ring turn up. She said they were going to return in the morning to continue the search and try to determine where she had been. I wished her good luck and to let me know if she discovered a new area we hadn’t covered. The next morning, I thought about going back down there and contacted Delaney to see if she had any new information. She said she thought maybe she was closer to the water and it might be in the wet sand now. They had already searched, but, came up empty. I decided to go ahead and give it another try. Delaney was already heading north on the road back home, so, she couldn’t meet me. No problem, I know the search area, and so just went on my own. I re-searched the first area by the volleyball court without success, and then headed the direction toward the supposed second area. Oh, I forgot to mention that since the night before, the beach grooming machine had gone through the area and sifted a 100 foot wide swath between the two search areas. Wonderful…., the ring could have been scooped up or moved hundreds of yards before falling out of the machine. I figured that would be the last area to search and I would concentrate on the slope and wet sand where the sifter didn’t go. 3 hours and many 300 yard long passes later, I was thinking about calling it. It was mind-numbingly quiet with virtually no targets of any sort, making it more of a walk on the beach than finding treasure. The good news is that you can cover a lot of ground when you don’t have to stop for anything. I finally, decided that this was going to be my last pass and head back south toward the 1st location. I got maybe a 1/4 of the way there when I got a nice solid 12 on my Equinox 800. Earlier I had found several of those sounds/readings, and they were all pull tabs or wadded up bits of foil. I took a healthy scoop of wet sand and thought I saw a flash of yellow gold as the sand sifted out. Sure enough, once the sand was gone a beautiful yellow gold engagement ring was looking up at me. Yes! Since I already had a photo of the ring, I knew it was Delaney’s. I texted her a photo and a subsequent phone call confirmed it was her ring and that she was on the road heading home. She arranged for her friends, that were still here in town, to meet up with me, so, they could pick up the ring and return it to her on their way home. They met me a short time later, took possession of the ring, and added their thanks to Delaney’s. A pleasure to meet you all, and thank you for the generous reward. My best wishes on your upcoming marriage Delaney.

Wedding Ring Lost On Sports Field Found! Mossman Park, Perth Western Australia.

Peter had been kicking a football with his son’s team mates before watching their AFL match. At the end of the third quarter after running the water bottles out to the team on the field he noticed his wedding ring of 17 years was missing. He and some other parents had searched in earnest for the ring before the next match began. During the next game he had googled for help and shortly after I got a call from him late morning. After gleaning the full picture of his movements around and across the field and when he had last seen the ring I asked him to find out when the last match for the day would end and to let me know so I could meet him then to conduct a search for the ring.

Back in business!

We met at the grounds in the late afternoon and he walked me around the various areas he’d been. The kids play on a reduced size field from the adults but even reduced in size it was still as big as a full size rugby field!

I used string lines and tent pegs to grid off the various areas and began a methodical search of the identified areas. Where he and the other parents had been on the sideline in front of the clubhouse had many gold like signals but most were deep, without any obvious ground disturbance so I completed that area with no joy.

The grass was quite short so I was half expecting the ring to be proud on the surface and was searching with both my eye’s and detector figuring that even if it had been trodden on during one of the games or on the sideline that at least a portion of the ring might still be visible.

The second area searched was part of the playing field. As I was working my way back towards the goal posts where he had been kicking the ball with the kids pre-match, a man approached Peter and asked him what we were doing (it always makes me cringe as I hear my client tell them what I am searching for). After finding this out he and his kids who could see me working close lines back and forth across the search area started to do the same within my marked out area. It occured to me to ask them to stop as they could tread the ring into the ground but decided not to as I couldn’t afford to waste time on the inevitable “we were just trying to help” type coversation as I did not have a lot of time before it would be dark, and I still had about 50% of the total area left to search.

Peter’s precious..

Upon finding the ring I had planned to stop searching, walk over to Peter and ask what the ring looked like etc whilst discreetly tossing the ring just behind him, so that when he answered I could point behind him and say, “does it look like that one?” which would give me time to snap a sneaky ‘smile pic’ as he picked it up in disbelief and turned back to me, which would be both a bit of fun and far more memorable for both of us.

Unfortunately the man who had decided to jump ahead of my search soon saw it and stole my thunder! Bugger, bugger, bugger. If you don’t quite understand why I wouldn’t be so happy about that, I’d been methodically searching for a bit over an hour at this stage and it is the anticipation of the feeling you get in ‘the moment of finding’ that is why we are able to keep going for hours on end (sometimes days), and as much as any reward that may be given, is a great part of why we can do it. Anyway despite the anticlimax the ring was found and returned to it’s rightful owner. Of course it was inside the my marked out search area and about 6 more passes back and forth and I would likely have ‘specked’ it!

I received an email about a man’s white gold wedding ring lost somewhere around the house. He was doing some basic yard work to include added dirt, mulch and moving some rocks. He was working in the front yard as well in the back yard. I started my search in the front yard searching through the flower bed. Then to the path taken around the house to the back yard, still no ring. Then continue to the back yard with search through the grass and dirt pile. As we were discussing which area to search next, then I got a good hit. By using my pro pointer to move the mulch and soil, the ring pop right out. He was very happy to have the ring returned to him.

I received a call on Thursday from Mike requesting my assistance to help him find his wedding ring which he had lost a couple of weeks ago. When I asked Mike how he had lost his ring he replied that he picked up a runner off his dresser because it had some dirt on it. He had walked out of the front door to shake the runner and thought he had heard a ping noise but without realizing what it was, He returned back into the house. After a couple of days Mike realized his ring was missing from his dresser. He searched high and low for the ring in the house with no luck. He then recalled the ping nose that he had heard, and that it must have been his ring that hit the sidewalk and bounced on the lawn. Mike spent hours looking for the ring with no luck.
I stopped in on Mike this morning and he showed me the area where he thought the ring could be. I searched through dead leaves and pine needles and I told Mike that since the foliage was near the same colour as his ring it would be very hard to locate the ring with the naked eye. I searched the other side of his side walk and found his ring neatly covered in pine needles. Mike was very grateful that he had found me on the Internet.

Another happy client.

Thank you Mike and Maryann.
