Lost Engagement ring, Holgate NJ (LBI) August 2022

  • from Surf City (New Jersey, United States)

Got a call today from Justin. He was at the beach in Holgate NJ (LBI) with his fiancé, Samantha. After setting up their chairs and umbrella, Sam took off her shorts, placed them with her stuff, and took a walk down by the water. It was then she realized her beautiful platinum engagement ring was gone. She quickly went back and looked in her pocket where she had placed it when applying sun block, back by at the car, before heading to the beach. It was not there and she was devastated. They contacted me, and after a short conversation we decided to do the recovery. I cleared the area of a few bottle caps, then pow!!! the low platinum signal I was looking for. They were amazed I had found it. This one was SUPER special, they are getting married next month, and now have the ring back for the ceremony

Lost Wedding Ring FOUND in Back Yard In Pleasant Grove, Alabama.

  • from Pinson (Alabama, United States)

On August 3rd I received a text about a lost ring,  Ashley seemed distressed about losing her ring on Monday, while she gaving her pups a bath in the yard next to the house, the rings slung off her hand into the thick grass. She had one pup in her arms and seemed to think she knew where they went and the area they may have landed. She got down on hands and knees that first night looking for the wedding ring and bands that fell from her hand. Over the course of the next two days she went and bought a metal detector and tried her luck at finding the ring to no avail. She then searched the internet for help. She stumbled upon the Ring Finders site and was amazed that there was such a group.

 I returned the text and began asking about the ring and where she lost it. I called to get the address and let her know that I would be on my way. After about an hour drive I arrived, spoke to Ashley and she showed me the area where she believed the ring fell. There was a catch, the yard guy had just mowed the area and Ashley was depressed that she may never see her rings again. After listening to her about the rings and area, I retrieved my XP Deus 2 from my Jeep. I started my search near the area that she marked, after a swing or two, the deus 2 made the sound I was looking for. The grass was difficult to manage with the clippings still covering the ground. I used my pinpointer to narrow down the signal and found both the band and the wedding ring. I looked at Ashley and said to her “found them”, she looked amazed that I could find them so quickly. I told her that it helped that she knew about the area where the rings fell. She was all smiles after that and was a very happy person, Like always, it is a great feeling to be able to return a lost ring to someone, see their big smiles and learn what it means to the people who lost it.


Lost wedding ring, Surf City NJ (LBI) August 2022

  • from Surf City (New Jersey, United States)

Got a call from Susan about her ring she dropped in the sand today in Surf City NJ. It had great sentimental value to her, as I could tell after just a short time on the phone. Lucky I was able to arrive promptly, as she had made reservations for later in the afternoon. Kudos to her and her husband for preparing the area it was lost, which made for a quick recovery. A very short time later they were on their way, with her cherished ring back on her finger. So many happy memories doing this.

Craigville Beach, Cape Cod, MA Lost Ring Found and Returned

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

July 27th, 2022

After a four-hour search for a lost ring, we returned to Leighton’s truck. We listened to a voice message about a lost wedding band. As the loss was on the opposite tide side of Cape Cod, we were on our way, hoping for a better search result; it was not yet time to call it a day. Leighton and I have teamed up for a few reasons: 1) companionship while traveling, 2) it increases the chances to find a lost item, and 3) we can cover twice the area in the time it would take one of us to search it alone.

We met up with Doug. After some fancy parking and a short synopsis of the previous day’s happening Doug led us to the area where he had lost his wedding band while teaching his 3-year-old daughter the thrill of the summertime beach. Feelings of a great beach day got a bit more intense when Doug lost his balance and braced himself with his left hand on the sandy bottom of Nantucket Sound. His daughter stayed high and dry, more than Doug could say about his wedding band. It had slipped from his ring finger and was to stay submerged for a day.

Several searchers using snorkels and goggles were unsuccessful in locating the ring just after it was “lost”. As usual our searching started with a grid search around the area Doug was standing at when he felt the ring slip from his finger. A crisscross search failed in locating the hiding ring. About 40 minutes into the search, I started a diagonal search pattern going well beyond the center of our previous search area. I am glad, as is Doug, that I went some 35 feet closer to the shoreline where I heard an all too familiar tone in my ears. About 10 inches down into the moving sand the wayward ring was in my scoop. It stayed there until Doug came to look into the scoop and identify the ring. Yes, it was his.

After a walk and talk going back to the parking lot, a few pictures, and many Thank You gestures from Doug he was on his way home. Wearing his wedding band and a smile from ear to ear he was anxious to get home and tell his wife the ring had been found and returned to his finger. I may be wrong but I think I heard Doug mention something about letting his wife wait a bit longer for the news so he could show and tell about the find in person.

Leighton and I both felt much better than about 2 hours before. Earlier we had not given up on searching for the other ring we were searching for. We just needed to rethink our search technique, change our detectors and their coil size and return another day to continue the search…We Never Give Up Hope!

Lost cross in the lagoon, Forked River NJ, July 2022

  • from Surf City (New Jersey, United States)

Curtis called asking if I could do a recovery in the lagoon behind his house. After going over some details, I told him I would be there soon. He was playing with the dog in the lagoon when his paw accidently broke the chain, and the cross dropped to the bottom before he could grab it. In almost neck deep water I got a faint signal, and sure enough, that was it.

Lost wedding band, Lavallette NJ. July 2022

  • from Surf City (New Jersey, United States)

Got a call from Ashley yesterday (Saturday) about her husbands lost ring. She explained how Jeff was throwing a football around the tide line when the ring flew off his hand and dropped into the wet sand. After talking a bit, we decided low tide was so late we would wait till the AM low tide to do the recovery, the surf was fairly calm, so it wouldn’t move to much. Jeff did an outstanding job marking the exact location of the ring, which is paramount when doing recoveries. A few swings later the ring was in the scoop.

Mens White Gold Wedding Band Lost/Found Rehoboth Beach Delaware

  • from Lewes (Delaware, United States)

On 07/16/22, I was contacted by Guy requesting help in locating his white gold mans wedding band that had been lost on the beach in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Guy stated that he had placed his wedding band in a zippered pocket of his bathing suit for safe keeping while he was swimming. Guy said that after he came out of the water, he had put another item in the same pocket of his bathing suit that he had placed his ring. Guy stated that he believed that his ring had fallen out of his pocket into the sand when he removed the other item from the pocket for someone to look at. I met Guy at the beach at 6:00 pm after the beach was clear of people. Guy was able to place me in the exact area that he believed that his ring had fallen out of his pocket into the sand. I began a grid search and on my second pass I was able to recover the lost ring. The lost ring was returned to its rightful owner so that Guy would be able to celebrate his upcoming 20th wedding anniversary with his original wedding band on his finger.

Lost Engagement Ring Underwater, Found, Cape Cod, Sea Shore, Returned

Rick and I were metal detecting at a local saltwater beach area this morning. As we were almost done, and not much to show for it, we decided to get a quick lunch break in. That never happened, a guy stopped Rick in the water, and said that his friend Katelyn, had just lost her engagement ring. Katelyn’s Engagement Ring was lost only a half hour before, underwater. She was throwing a football with friends. Rick motioned to me, and we began to grid the area. Katelyn was getting nervous, and having second thoughts that she may never see it again. I assured her that we would prevail and to not give up till she sees us give up. I asked her to stay in that area, and to not walk away, so I could do my job with precision. Her Husband, and about five others were trying to locate it with snorkel and masks, but turned up nothing. I started to move over to broaden the search area. As Rick and I crossed paths, he saw me stop and start to dig, he asked me if I had it? I honestly wasn’t sure, it was a scratchy sound but on the third try sure enough it was in my scoop. When I motioned to Katelyn to come over to have a look. I asked her to describe it again. She was so excited that I had it. I told her she was a lucky girl today. Everyone around us were cheering and clapping. Even her friends up on the beach were yelling, I actually felt like a celebrity LOL Its such a fantastic feeling to return it to the owner. Another great day at the beach. Congratulations Katelyn ! Leighton.

13 Lucky Number for Kenyon … Lost,Found,Recovered,Returned In Salt Water…

13 is Kenyon’s lucky number today.

I was on my way off the beach the other day from recovering a ring for a gentleman, I noticed a Lost Wedding Band sign posted. I gave it a quick call to a man named Kenyon. I told him who I was and what I do. He told me he had lost it a week ago while doing butterfly strokes in the water. That it hadn’t been off of his finger in 13 years. I had him send me a picture of the area, and drop a pin where I should search if I could get down to have a look for him. I tried to go a few days in a row, but because of the wind and high waves I wasn’t able to get in the water till this morning.

I searched for over an hour with no luck in the area he was sure it was, to no avail. As I was running out of real estate, with only one target that was a small bullet. I was about to call it quits. I was going to have Kenyan meet me tomorrow and put me in the area again. I was walking out of knee deep water when I got a signal so loud it scared me. I knew it had to be the ring because there were no other targets in the area. Sure enough, there it was a size 13.5  14K White wedding band looking up at me in the scoop. I am so happy to get this back to him as Kenyon and his wife are going away tomorrow on vacation. Keep the faith.

Late Father’s Ring Lost In Ocean Found One Month Later – Emerald Isle, NC

  • from Emerald Isle (North Carolina, United States)

Megan was visiting the Crystal Coast from New Hampshire.  She was swimming with her fiancé along Bogue Inlet Pier in “crazy waves”.  During this time, Megan’s late father’s ring fell off of her hand into the waist deep water.  She posted a plea on Facebook with doubts of ever seeing the last thing her father gave her before his passing.  The post caused the alert flag to be raised, so to speak as people recommended Crystal Coast Ring Finders and The Ring Finders.  I also was notified from friends of the recent lost stainless band.  After multiple attempts during the first week, I was unable to locate her father’s ring.  I then posted on local metal detecting Facebook groups with the story behind Megan’s ring and that she has plans for a September wedding and wanted to wear her Father’s ring during the ceremony.  A stainless ring does not hold much monetary value but to Megan, of course, it was priceless.

Fast forward almost one exact month later… the guy I’ve been metal detecting the beaches with, Justin, was taking advantage of the negative tides and somewhat low tide heights to search along Bogue Inlet Pier with his Minelab Equinox.  He knew very well about Megan’s lost ring and has helped me search for it in the past.  Fortunately for everyone, he was able to swing his search coil over her ring still in deeper waters and pull it to the surface.  He called me as soon as possible.  I called Megan shortly after verifying it was indeed her ring and she thought I was just going to delete the posts and give up the search.  She misunderstood when I said there was no reason to keep the lost rings postings up…   …because her father’s ring has been found and she will be able to once again wear it on her very special day!
