Gold Wedding Band Lost McMinnville, OR – Found by The Ring Finders Portland & The Gorge

  • from Hood River (Oregon, United States)

Steve lost his wedding band while cleaning up yard debris from the recent ice storm. Over the phone the potential loss areas seemed reasonable for a search but unfortunately the exact location was mostly unknown. When we surveyed the 4 main work sites, the 20′ diameter x 4′ high brush pile, and accounted for transiting to/from sites, the area covered approximately 1/2 acre; possibly a 3+ hr search. I was thinking I should have packed a lunch… fortunately Joanie, his wife, had made homemade brownies!
For a rental detector with the typical small coil and generally limited capabilities the task would seem impossible but with my Tesoro 3″ x 18″ clean-sweep coil the odds improved considerably. Steve suggested primary, secondary, and tertiary locations given the amount of work at each location. The large area of leaves at the primary location was the perfect combination for loss due to wetness and poor visual search conditions so that is where I started. Thankfully, our hunch was correct and the large search coil made for a relatively quick find.
A successful ring find & return always makes the long road trip more enjoyable… Thank you Steve & Joanie for the good day.¬†Oh, did I mention the delicious brownies!

Gold & Diamond Ring lost in Vancouver, WA – Found by The Ring Finders Portland & The Gorge

  • from Hood River (Oregon, United States)

Stephanie was throwing a ball to her dog when her ring fell off. The snow covered ground complicated a visual search so the internet search began for help. All references pointed to the use of a metal detector but the same information explained there was a learning curve to success and not all rental detectors are up to the task. They opted for the most reasonable option which was to call to a member of The Ring Finders. The area was marked when I arrived so I got to work in the most logical direction given Stephanie’s explanation of events. Having searched a reasonable distance with no results I returned to the starting point and searched the opposite direction, Bingo. Hidden in the snow, approximately 3′ behind the direction of throw, was Stephanie’s custom white gold wedding ring!
Brad & Stephanie were very happy to have their wedding day ring back on her finger.
