Lost wedding ring found in Menlo Park

The lost ring was found in the grass

Mark was playing soccer on the grounds of a nineteenth-century seminary in Menlo Park. It’s the kind of quiet, spacious place that you would expect to find in the English countryside instead of the Bay Area suburbs between Palo Alto and Redwood City.

Mark was wearing his wife’s wedding ring on a chain around his neck. When the game was over, he removed his jersey, then noticed that the chain was broken and the ring was gone. Mark and his teammates immediately searched the field with no luck.

Later that afternoon, other teams played two more games on the same field, which made Mark worry that the ring would get smashed into the soft earth, or found by someone who didn’t know he was looking for it. That evening, he searched the internet for metal detector rental in  Menlo Park, Palo Alto and Mountain View and found TheRingFinders.

We met Mark at the seminary the next day. He showed us where he’d removed his jersey, and where he’d walked afterwards. He felt strongly that this was the most likely place for the ring to fall, because he’d kept his jersey tucked in the entire game. We used stakes to create an initial search zone the full width of the field by about thirty yards long, then two of us began a careful gridded search.

It turns out Mark was right about where the ring was lost, because we found it within about 20 minutes near the middle of the search zone. It’s a beautiful ring that Mark and his wife are very happy to have back, safe and sound.

Lost… 3 Platinum Rings at Chesterman Beach Vancouver Island…Found

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

I received a call from the Concierge at the Wickaninnish Inn in Tofino, Vancouver Island.  He asked if I could help search for 3 platinum rings that were tossed into the ocean at Chesterman Beach, beside their inn.

He tells me that 3 days past from the time the young lady from London England tossed her rings into the ocean.  He helped the couple by getting them a metal detector so they could search the next morning for the rings.

The coupled searched most of the day but had no luck in finding the rings.  They were leaving the next day to New York, they would leave Tofino broken hearted!

After the couple left to New York,  the Concierge (Damien) began to search the internet to see if he could locate someone to help find those 3 lost rings.

This is where I come into play,  he finds TheRingFinders.com online, he tells me the story of the lady and her lost rings. I know I have to act fast as the waves on that beach can get very big in the winter time and that could pound the rings deep into the sand, beyond the reach of a detector.

My wife who hasn’t picked up a detector since we were hunting in the UK (Spoiled) many years ago, wanted to come and help. This was great because she could help grid search and we could knock it out fast,  we needed to because of the tides.

Close to 4 hours and only a couple of  trash targets I got a good signal.  I dug down with my sand scoop and placed the lump of sand on the beach and with my headlight I could see the sparkle of diamonds!

I found the platinum diamond engagement ring! I yelled out to Beverley and she came running, we were so happy and we called Trish in New York to tell them the good news.

We regained our composure and Beverley started to do a corkscrew grid search where I found the ring and within minutes she got a signal 5 yards away and scooped up the platinum wedding band…

This was the tough one because it was so small and thin and it was already 4-5 inches down,  good find by Beverley!

Well we were excited and hopeful that we would find the 3rd ring and within 5 minutes and about 15 yards away I found the Aquamarine platinum ring…

We were so happy to find all 3 rings and excited to email the pictures of our discovery to Trish & James.  We got a call early the next morning and Trish & James were happy, happy!

Things happen in our lives that make us do funny things that we regret… That being said the rings have more memories now and the last memory was how good it felt to get them back!

We started back to Vancouver and as luck would have it we got stuck in traffic for hours due to snow storms and white outs.  We did make it to the ferry and dropped the rings off to Trish’s friends in West Vancouver who will be going to London in a weeks time…

Beverley and I had a great time on this search and the Hero in all of this , in our opinion,  is the Concierge at the Wickaninnish Inn (Damien) Because if he hadn’t found The Ring Finders Directory, the rings would be lost forever!

I love my job! I Love my Wife!
