Lost Ring Found in Spring Hill Pond at Island Lake Recreation Area, Brighton, MI

from Wixom (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-248-622-7768

Chris and Christi were celebrating Father’s Day at Island Lake State Park.  The whole family was out in the water at Spring Hill Pond enjoying the sun, the water, and the record 90 plus degree heat.  It was a perfect summer day until Chris noticed his wedding band was missing.  Pictures taken just minutes earlier confirmed the ring had been lost in the lake, so the family along with other beach goers looked frantically while slowly losing hope.   One of Chris’s daughters asked her phone for help and theRingfinder web site came up with my phone number.  I was able to come immediately, it was early evening, and the lake was still crowded with swimmers.   With the light starting to fade and park closing in two hours, I knew I had to be quick.  Chris and daughter Carly marked the area boundaries and Christi I started making 50 yard passes in 3 – 4 foot deep water.  Everybody was cold, and we took turns diving with the scoop.  An hour later, after five passes across the swimming area turned up only a few coins, I got a great signal in about 4 feet of water.  Christi held the metal detector and I was able to scoop up the ring.  A happy ending and a super Father’s Day chapter added to this family’s album.

lost wedding ring Ko’olina Found

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-699-0521

On June 3rd I get a phone call from Joe who is out of town on vacation letting me know that there is a Mr. Muto who is searching the beach in Ko’olina for his Wife’s wedding ring. I gather the information from Joe and give Mr. Muto a call in which i reassure Mr. Muto that i will be heading out and to mark off the area in which he thinks it might be. I arrive at Ko’olina and meet up with Mr Muto which i start looking for the ring. I come across coins, rubbish,  until i hear a loud gold tone. I dig the site and inside the Xtreme scoop is a beautiful Tiffany and Co. Diamond ring. I look towards Mr. Muto and ask him what the ring looks like and He say “Tiffany” and right away I let him know of the great news… I FOUND IT! I returned it to Mr. Muto and we both leave the beach with this overwhelming joy that washed over us with relief and satisfaction.

The next day I receive a call from Mr. Mutos wife letting me know that there is another ring lost. I let her know that i will give her a call later that night and need to check. I call the Muto’s that evening and let them know I have a Cartier diamond wedding band.  They ended up driving to my house and we were able to reunite the last of the lost rings! What started out as a single ring find ended up being a double and both were recovered and returned to the rightful owner. Mahalo Joe Another Happy ending! Aloha is ALIVE!

 

Lost Rings found at Pacific Beach

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Last night I received a call from Jose asking for help finding his wife Deisy’s engagement and wedding rings. They were enjoying the beach with their two children yesterday and Deisy had removed her rings and put them in her pants pocket, and then put the pants in her beach bag. Good idea to keep them safe, right? Well, it didn’t turn out that way. Later in the day when they were ready to leave, she got her pants out of the bag and put them on.  A few minutes later, when they got to the house, she reached into the pocket and, no rings. Back down to the beach to search for them, but, as is typical, it was fruitless. They could be where she put on the pants (most likely) or anywhere along their hike off the beach and to the house a block away. After searching for help with the lifeguards and online, they came upon TheRingFinders.com website and me. Being a popular beach to detect, I hot foot it down there and meet Jose who takes me to where they were camped out that afternoon. It was now just after high tide and the area had been washed over a bit by some waves, but, not a lot of erosion, so, the rings should still be there. I began an ever-expanding grid search from that point, and after 20 minutes or so, I get a good solid 8 on my Equinox. Out comes the pin pointer and I find the engagement ring just under the sand about 20 feet from my starting point. Great, the wedding should be close by….not! I gridded that area 6 ways from Sunday and not a sound. Oh well, we’ll do it the hard way. I expanded the area even more and made 4-5 passes all the way to the stairs thinking it might have fallen along the way. Nope, found a few coins, lots of foil junk, a junk ring,and a couple of stud earrings, but, no wedding ring. Since the tide had gone out significantly since I started a couple hours earlier, I decided to go back to the original site and expand down the slope toward the water. Sure enough, after a few passes, I get a nice solid 6-7 reading and up pops the wedding ring about half way down the slope. We headed back to the house where I met a tearfully grateful Deisy. Glad to have met you both and thank you for the reward.

 

Lost Ring Mowing Found And Returned in Tulsa, Oklahoma

from Broken Arrow (Oklahoma, United States)
Contact: 1-918-724-4184

Recieved a call from Steve around 6:30pm on 6/4/18 about his ear ring. I asked him what had happened and he said he was mowing on a rideing mower. He came up to a tree and was going around the tree and a branch grabbed on to his headphones and also took off his ear ring. He was about 25 minutes away so I called him and said I’m on my way. I got to were he was and asked him what happened His story didn’t change. I said do you have the other earring I wanted to know what it would ring up at (it rang up at a 53). Steve showed me what had happened and I eliminated one side of a very small hill. On the other side I started down from the top and was at the end of the grass hill and received a very good signal. I couldn’t see the ear ring at first so the pinpointer was very useful as the earring was in the grass, I picked up steve’s earring and said does your earring look like this. I’ve never seen a big guy jump and dance like Steve did. Thanks Steve for the nice reward……

Diamond Engagement and Gold Wedding Band Set Lost for Six Months in Long Grove, IA…Found

from Bettendorf (Iowa, United States)
Contact: 1-630-290-3180

Patricia was doing some late season gardening in October 2017. The temperatures here in the Midwest were average for October, meaning it was cool, but not yet considered cold, and a little breezy.  Patricia had been prepping all of her flower gardens for the winter season by raking and bagging up the flowers and plants that were dying back from the end of the season.  During the process of raking, bagging, and the wind blowing her hair in her face, Patricia removed her gloves frequently to brush her hair out of her face and then continue on with her gardening.

It wasn’t until Patricia was done with her work and she was inside cleaning up that she noticed her wedding band set was no longer on her finger. She believes the temperature was just cool enough that the ring came off of her finger during one of the many times that she removed her gloves.  She did not expect to ever see her rings again.

Fast-forward to April of 2018. Patricia’s rings have been missing for over six months.  She was certain that her rings were not in the lawn bags as she had dumped them out one-by-one in October and thoroughly searched the contents.  This gave me confidence that her rings were still somewhere in her yard.  Beginning at about 10:00AM I searched each of Patricia’s flower beds and then I began a grid search of the back yard.

Just before noon I had covered approximately half of the back yard when I got a good “gold” tone on my metal detector. After pinpointing on the signal I looked beneath the search coil and I could see a little shiny object deep in the grass.  I reached down to pick the object up and it was Patricia’s rings.  When I showed the rings to her she cried, she smiled, and she was speechless.  It was an overflow of emotions in one instance.  Just seeing how happy she was made the hunt for her rings that much more rewarding.

I’m a couple of months late posting this story, but I wanted to share this wonderful event.

 

Ring lost at Mission Beach found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Eric realized he shouldn’t play around in the sand with his wedding ring on, so, he thought it wiser to take it off and let someone else hold on to it until he was done. Little did he know that the person he handed it to would be the one to lose it in the sand. They knew approximately where it should be, but, sifting through the sand with their fingers and even borrowing a metal detector from the lifeguards didn’t help bring it to light. Off to the internet and a hit on TheRingFinders.com website. A quick look at the map and my name is listed for Mission Beach. I get the call about 8:15pm and arrange to meet Eric at 8:45pm at the site. We meet and I get the low down on how/where it was lost and what we’re looking for. On my first pass and only a couple of minutes later, I get a promising signal. Yup, it’s what we’re looking for. Both Eric and his friend are happy and relieved to get the ring back. Pleasure to meet you both and thank you for the reward.

Lost ring at Pacific Beach found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Matt called TheRingFinders for help getting his wedding ring back. Seems he was playing ball out in the waves with a friend when, while catching the ball, it smacked his hand sending his gold wedding band flying into the surf. The bad news…..it was at low tide…..the good news…..it was only knee to thigh deep, and since he called both myself and fellow ring finder member Tony Eisenhower, who brought his grandson, we had a team to help in the search.

We met Matt at the appointed time and place so he could show us the search area. The good news……thankfully he took some reference points to help narrow it down a bit……the bad news……fairly rough surf and quite a bit of kelp to tangle us. Out we went, Tony and me using our new Equinox 800’s and Tony’s grandson with the trusty Excalibur. After about 20-30 minutes and no signals, guess who finally gets a good sound? Yup, the grandson, showing us both up! Tony came over, scooped the nice sound, and success, Matt’s ring is back in the sunshine. Now Matt can head home to MN without having to come up with an explanation to his wife on how he lost his ring here in San Diego. A pleasure to meet you Matt, and thank you for the generous reward.

 

Cartier and Tiffany & Co. Rings Found in Medina! Silver, Palladium and 3 Golds… Multi Ring Recovery!

from Seattle (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-206-651-4779

Got the call yesterday from Angela, an assistant to Lyn, who lost 3 rings playing with her dogs near her Medina home. After getting the necessary info, which included great photos of the location, I hurried out to find them. It was a high profile location, so time was of the essence!

Due to the great info I was provided, I thankfully found them with an hour or so. If you lose a ring, take pictures of the spot you were at, in the direction you think it flew off, this info is invaluable to a Ringfinder! Since they were unable to meet me there, it really helped to have these pictures so I could get to work finding the rings as soon as I arrived.

The rings were pretty far from the point she was throwing from, so Lyn must have a strong pitching arm! All were within 6 ft of each other.

A plain silver band, a neat Tiffany & Co. palladium ring, and a classic Trinity ring from Cartier… white, rose and yellow gold, it was a family heirloom so I was glad I could find them.

Please contact me quickly and I’ll have a better chance of reuniting you with your lost items!

Lost wedding set at Pacific Beach found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Alyssa called me 5 minutes after my request for help in Coronado. She had lost her wedding ring/engagement combo in the dry sand somewhere in a 20 foot radius around where she was sitting. She was also visiting from out of town (MN) and was leaving the next day. After my successful recovery in Coronado, I headed to Pacific Beach with high hopes. Parking was virtually non-existent down by the beach, so, I parked a good 1/2 mile away and hiked to the site with my gear. She was waiting for me right at the search area and I started a grid search. On the first pass, I found a dime, a piece of trash, and then her rings. A happy Alyssa can now head home happy she doesn’t have to explain to her husband how she lost her rings here in San Diego! Thank you for the reward.

 

Lost Gold Wedding Band Vancouver, BC…Found

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

Yesterday I was on a water hunt that started in February but I had to put it aside for warmer water. Well the temperature was perfect and the water was warm but after 4 1/2 hours in the stinky the beaver pond  I sadly had no success. I put in a total of 7 1/2 hours in a relatively small area but with some difficulties. The only thing I could guess was that the ring didn’t go in the water where he thought it did…? It happens, I don’t always have success but with that said I received a call while I was wrapping up the search from a young man that needed help finding his lost wedding band at a playground.

I headed out to the park and got there before him, I started my search and within 15 minutes I found his ring!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He was extremely lucky that no one found it before us, he had lost it the day before and the following day was a hot one and lots of people at the playground even when I got there around 8pm.

The ring was found in front of the slide and visible to the eye, the good thing was that the wood chips helped camouflage the gold ring.

 

I love my job! If you or someone you know has lost a ring please contact a member of TheRingFinders.com ASAP
