Thanksgiving Day is a wonderful time to get together with your family and celebrate all the things we have to be thankful for! Tanner and his wife were enjoying a relaxing afternoon at his sisters home and decided to play a little baseball in the backyard with the nephews. They got out the baseball gloves and right away Tanner noticed that his glove fit sort of tight on his hand. After an hour or so it was time to eat and it was then that he realized his wedding ring was not on his finger. So the first place he looked was in the glove he had been wearing–and no ring! Part of the time they had used the glove as a base so they searched around the area where it was on the ground—and no ring there either! They tried raking the grass to see if they could spot it using that method and after a while they realized how hard it was going to be to find such a small item! Someone even brought out a cheaper model metal detector and it just seemed to beep all the time and left them even more frustrated.

Two days later Tanner’s sister, Hilary, went online and found “theringfinders.com” and decided to give me a call. I met Tanner and some of the family members there at Hilary’s home and they showed me the area in the back yard where they played and where most of the action took place. I set up my small flags and started doing my usual grid search, slowly going back and forth trying to cover every inch of the yard so as not to miss Tanner’s lost ring. Right away I detected various targets, mostly deeper items that were lost months or possibly years ago. I was looking for a recent drop which should be just below the blades of grass or maybe pressed into the dirt ever so slightly. Ten minutes into my search I got a choppy signal, reading 4 to 6 inches deep that really did not sound like what I was looking for. Still I had to be sure and as I parted the grass with the toe of my boot….I caught a glimpse of something black and round! Bingo!! I motioned to Tanner to come over and check out what I had found and he was super surprised and very relieved to see his lost wedding ring hiding in the grass and so close to where they all had spent so much time looking!

What an honor and privilege it was to be able to help find and return his lost ring!

What is the first thing you do when you lose a ring? You mark the exact spot where you lost it or as close as possible, then you contact myself or one of the ring finders in your area!

Ken was working in his yard, doing yard work and cleaning out his swimming pool, and covered quite an area while doing so. When he came into the house and while washing his hands he realized his wedding ring was missing. He told me he has worn his ring for the last 7 years and he was desperately wanting to find it!

When I arrived at his home I was met by Ken and his dear wife and their little son. He showed me around his back yard indicating where he had done certain jobs, like draining the large hose for his pool, picking up debris here and there and where he had worked on his pool filter system. I began by systematically working my way around the yard trying to thoroughly cover each area! Earlier Ken had indicated where he unrolled and rerolled a large flat hose and that grassy area was where Ken’s lost wedding ring was hiding! Ken and his wife were thrilled to have their token of love back on Ken’s finger where it belonged and I was privileged to be involved in that awesome reunion! Again I said a prayer to my heavenly Father for helping me find Ken’s lost wedding ring!

Give me a call or text me ASAP and let me help you find what you have lost!

Brandon was enjoying the hot sun and warm waters with his family and everything was going great until the chain around his neck broke and a very special ring that was attached fell into the churning Atlantic surf! This special gold wedding ring was a gift that belonged to his deceased grandmother and something that Brandon cherished very, very much! He was heart broken and extremely upset with himself for not remembering to take the chain off before going into the water. (The best thing would have been to leave it at home or in his vehicle!). Allot of people think they will not lose their ring or chain because it has never just come off before and say to themselves, “What could possibly happen?”.

Thankfully Brandon was quite sure of the area where he was standing when he lost his precious ring! The following day I arrived just before low tide and marked out an area with my flags and began my grid search. Brandon and his wife watched for a while as I made my way in and out of the surf and I am sure they were anxious to see if I would uncover his ring. I dug a few targets here and there, the usual coin or two and a pull tab. Brandon was getting ready to leave in his vehicle to get their kids when I motioned for him to check out what I had just dug! Overjoyed and with tears in his eyes he confirmed that my last target was indeed his grandmothers lost gold wedding ring! With tears in my own eyes I said a silent prayer to thank my heavenly Father for helping me find and return Brandon’s lost ring!

Lost wedding ring in grass, Longwood, Florida….found with a metal detector!

Marybeth was playing with her children in the back yard throwing water balloons and as she raised her hand to catch one that was thrown in her direction it hit her in the left palm just right and knocked her precious wedding ring right off of her finger. She actually felt her ring come off and immediately she began to look in the grass around her. Unfortunately the type of grass was our famous St. Augustine grass that is super thick and is known to swallow up rings and the like!
She spent a few hours on her hands and knees looking and feeling through the grass desperately hoping to find her lost ring. Realizing the futility of trying to spot it with her eyes she began thinking that maybe a metal detector would be the proper tool for the job. Her first thought was to see if there was somewhere that would rent her a metal detector for the day and after typing “Metal Detector Rental” on her phone….up popped “theringfinders.com” website and one of my stories!
Later that day I met Marybeth and she showed me the exact spot where she was standing and it only took a few swings of my Garrett AT Max metal detector and Bingo!!! What a privilege it was to help Marybeth find her lost ring!

Man’s Yellow Gold Wedding Band Lost in the Sand, Found and Returned Ocean Isle, NC

  • from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

This ring search started with a phone call from Brock saying he lost his wedding band in the sand on Ocean Isle Beach. He wanted to know if I could help find it. I told him I could be there in 30 minutes. Since it was Sunday, I knew the beach would be crowded with no place to park. I asked him if I could park in his driveway, and he responded yes. I then asked him to text me the address and I was on my way.

When I got to his house, I called him, and he came out to meet me. We walked down to the beach, and he showed me the area where he lost his ring. He had been playing Spikeball and when he reached for the ball, he felt his ring fly off his finger. This is one of those searches you dream about. I turned my Deus II on, literally took 2 steps and got a loud and clear 70 on the VDI (visual display indicator). I took a small scoop of sand, had the target in the scoop and shook the excess sand out and saw his gold ring. I held out the scoop for Brock to retrieve his ring. It took him a couple of seconds to see it amongst some shells but when he did see it, his face lit up.

Brock and Payton – Thank you for trusting me and The Ring Finders to help find your lost treasure. Enjoy the rest of your vacation.

Lost class ring, Found 22 years later, Sanford, Florida….and returned to owner!

A friend of ours told me about her lost diamond engagement ring and said it could have been dropped some where around the house that they used to live in, 20 some years ago! She had a sneaking suspicion that maybe one of her boys had gotten a hold of it and miss placed it either inside the house or maybe dropped it some where outside of the house in the yard…possibly! And since they only moved just across the street it has been easy access to the house and yard for the occasional metal detecting. I had started around the front of the house checking every signal that sounded off in the small gold ring range and I dug plenty of foil, pull tabs and pieces of construction aluminum from when the house was built. Next I went along a small grassy area between the houses and got a strong signal that just begged to be dug up! Four inches down I uncovered a large class ring of someone who graduated in the year 2000. The school name indicated a small Christian school that is no longer functioning but my own children attended that very school back in the day! So I asked around and found the parents of the young man who lost his ring and sure enough….while living in that house he had lost his ring shortly after graduating! I always get a thrill when I find a ring in the ground but it brings special joy when that ring has information on it that helps me return it to the rightful owner. In this case I called one of the parents and asked them about their son and his lost class ring and sure enough, he had lost it shortly after his graduation.

Lost wedding ring in Ocean, St Augustine, Florida….Found!

Mellisa and her husband were enjoying a beautiful day at the beach and while walking their two large dogs the unexpected happened! As they were splashing water on the two dogs in the ankle deep surf, Ian actually felt his ring come off of his finger but he did not have any idea where it landed. All he remembered was how deep the water was and that it happened around 3:30 in the afternoon. Plus they figured they were “in front off” a certain hotel during their play time with their dogs.

When Mellisa called me and asked for my help I knew it was important to get out and search ASAP and since I already had plans for the evening I encouraged her to contact one of the members of theringfinders in the St. Augustine area. And thankfully she was able to talk to Barbara who passed her request on to a friend named Dick who enjoys helping with beach searches. Dick was able to meet Ian and Mellisa and looked for an hour and a half but did not find Ian’s lost wedding ring. The couple had to leave back to Georgia and Dick was planning to come back in a day or two to look again. And it just so happened that I got a call from someone in the Jacksonville area so I decided to stop by the beach and help Barbara and Dick look. When I arrived they were both swinging their metal detectors and had basically covered all the logical areas where Ian said they were while splashing their dogs. He had previously indicated that he was in ankle deep water just after high tide so that would have put them up on the wet sand. We spent another good 90 minutes and Dick thought maybe he would wander down towards the waters edge and detect some and BANG… he got a solid signal and was totally surprised to see a chunky man’s yellow gold ring in his scoop! Could it possibly be Ian’s lost wedding ring?!! He called me over to have a look and I was shocked how far towards the water the ring was. Come to find out the beach had a first sand bar that would have separated two places where Ian could have actually been in ankle deep water during the time he indicated–so I learned something new that day that will help me in future searches!

It was great to meet Barbara from St. Augustine and Dick who loves to metal detect and they both enjoy looking for and returning lost rings to their rightful owners! Two very wonderful people who share the same passion and hobby that I myself do!

Lost earbud in the grass, Sanford, Florida….Found!

  • from Sanford (Florida, United States)
Contact:


Stephanie was out with her two small children and while watching them play she was unaware that one of. her earbuds fell out of her ear. After getting the children back into the house she felt her ear and realized the one was missing. Thinking it must have popped out while picking up her young son she began retracing her steps and thought surely she would find it as it was black and would show up rather easily on the sidewalk or even in the grass.

Two days passed and her husband remembered that I help people find their lost items using a metal detector so he sent me a message asking if I could help them. I showed up 15 minutes later and asked for Stephanie’s other earbud to see if I could get a reading and sure enough it gave a faint signal in the “All Metal Mode”. After searching for 20 minutes I got a quiet signal and there, down in the grass, was Stephanie’s lost earbud…barely visible! Stephanie was so happy to have it back and the big smile tells it all!

Lost wedding ring in Fairview Lake, Orlando, Florida….Found with a metal detector!

  • from Sanford (Florida, United States)
Contact:



Peyton and his wife were enjoying a beautiful sunny day on Fairview Lake and as he jumped off of his boat and into the shallow water he felt his gold wedding ring slip off of his finger. After 27 years of marriage and having already lost one of his wedding rings years ago he was stunned that here it was happening again. After feeling around in the sand and mud he gave up and decided to come back and look for it again with a mask and hookah dive system and a small hand held waterproof metal detector. He also was able to mark the area where he was anchored on his boats GPS system making it much easier to pinpoint the exact area, which is so, so important!

Peyton returned the next day and searched for a couple of hours but was unsuccessful in finding his lost gold ring. Later that evening as he was searching on line to buy a full size waterproof metal detector he came across theringfinders.com web site and found my name. We made arrangements to meet later on that day and I figured if he marked the area it would make the ring much easier to locate. Peyton was waiting in his boat when I arrived and as soon as I loaded all my gear we were off to the other side of the lake. There was a fairly stiff breeze and after getting the anchors set I jumped into the water and with Peyton guiding me I placed four PVC poles around the area where he figured he lost his ring. Usually a large gold ring will give me certain numbers on my waterproof Garrett AT Max metal detector so I concentrated on any signal that read even close to those numbers. I dug a number of nickels, pull tabs and other assorted targets and as I was coming close to finishing up the 2500 square foot area I asked Peyton to think about what direction to expand my search area….and he felt confident it was in the general area that I was finishing up. And sure enough as I was on my last grid line I got a clean, solid, mid-tone signal and as I dumped out my scoop onto my floating sifter…there shining bright and beautiful in the evening sun was Peyton’s lost gold wedding ring! How I thank God for allowing me to find and return Peyton’s lost ring and to be a part of seeing such joy and relief on his face. And thank you Peyton for calling me and for giving me that opportunity!

Maybe you have lost something precious and valuable and need my help?!! Call or text me ASAP!

Lost diamond engagement ring in sand, Lake Buena Vista, Fl….Found with metal detector!

Mike and his young family were spending an awesome time at one of the Disney Resorts and while enjoying one of the sandy beach areas with their two children Mike’s wife felt her diamond ring slip off of her finger! Normally one can find their ring when they know and feel it come off and it lands on a hard surface but when it drops into soft sand, well…that is another story! Mike immediately began to run his fingers through the sand thinking surely he would feel the ring and put his dear wife’s mind at ease, but again in soft, fluffy sand that can be a big problem. Gold rings have an uncanny way of just sinking further down into the sand and the more one rakes or runs their fingers through the soft sand the further the ring disappears! Engagement rings are usually very expensive and a pain to replace and loosing this ring was affecting their vacation time. Mike tried asking the resort management if there was anyone who could help and when that did not lead to the help they needed he went online and found theringfinders.com. He first called another Ring Finder named Steve Thomas who at the time was up in Texas welcoming a new grand baby to their family–so Mr. Steve gave Mike my number. After getting the proper permission I met Mike at the resort and we walked out onto the newly raked sand and Mike indicated the area where the ring was lost. I set out four corner flags and started my tight grid search. I found a few coins and some small aluminum foil pieces and of course each time I would dig and retrieve a target Mike’s hopes and adrenalin would go up! After 15 minutes I got a good solid repeatable gold signal and uncovered the lost diamond engagement ring! What an honor and privilege it was to help Mike and his family and to give them a wonderful reason to now enjoy the rest of their Florida vacation! It never gets old….helping reunite people with their lost treasures!
