Susan called to ask for help in finding her husband’s lost tungsten wedding band. It was slung off his wet finger a month before when opening their camper door. Carrie and I left the next day for the 70 mile trip. On arriving, we found the grassy search area to be small in the RV lot. We began the search of the lot. Next to the grassy area was a fenced area for a water system. Sid hunted the fenced area facing the RV. After 2 hours of searching and re-searching the yard and rock driveway, we had not found the ring. Susan, Carrie and Sid had gathered up near the rear side of the water system to discuss the next step when Carrie saw a sparkle from the rocks around the water system. In plain view laying on the rocks was the ring. Lost items are not always where you expect them to be. After the happy trio took pictures, we were on our way back home. Thank you, Susan, for your generous reward.
I’m new to the site but have been metal detecting for over 20 years. I recover items using a state of the art detector and am excited to be able to help so give me a call. Metal detecting takes years of experience to get good at so please give me a call before wasting money on buying or acquiring a rental detector. I can help !!
Rings, jewelry, relics, coins, caches, hidden family treasures. I can find it all.
After Brennon and Alyssa rode their 4 wheeler along the muddy trails, they decided to call it a day. They parked at the area used to wash off the four wheelers and themselves. While washing her hands with a hose, Alyssa felt her engagement ring slip off her finger. They and other riders hunted for it from 8 PM till midnight with no success. The next morning they returned with a newly purchased metal detector to continue the hunt. After finding only foil, pennies and pop tops, Brennon looked at a YouTube video for hunting hints. He saw a “The Ring Finders” decal on a car in the video and went to our website. We got the call from Brennon on Sunday morning. Carrie and I were able to load our equipment and be on site in 1 ½ hours. The hunt area was relatively small but had quite a lot of trash. It was hard bottom with dead matted grass covered by 2 to 4 inches of mud. After 20 minutes of getting everything, including us, covered in mud, Carrie found the ring, tangled in the grass, under the mud. After some happy tears and pictures (and washing off mud from us and our equipment) we were heading home feeling great after reuniting Alyssa with her beautiful ring.
Thank you for your generous reward. Best wishes for a long and happy life together.
I received a 911 call from wonderful lady, whose name is Jo Anna. It seems like she was walking her dog in her back yard earlier this week and using a “chucker” to throw a ball for the dog to chase and return to her. Jo Anna had on a chain with a sterling silver pendant that has a clip that allows for easy changing between different pendants and different chains.
Jo Anna and her dog were having a wonderful time, the dog chasing the ball and returning that ball to Jo Anna where she would bend over, pick up the ball and chuck it again. Everything was fine until Jo Anna got back into the house and started to get ready for work, Then is when she discovered that the pendant was not on the chain anymore. We all can imagine the panic that sets in at a time like this, as we all have ourselves experienced a similar experience. Panic and sense of loss.
Jo Anna tried to recover the pendant herself as she rented a metal detector from a local dealer, read the booklet that comes with the machine and started searching her back yard. Although a salesman for a detector would not tell you, it’s just not that easy. The machine has to be set up right for the metal content that is present in all soil, and that content changes as you work any area which requires more adjustment. Also, metal detectors speak in sounds (tones) that are different for all the different metals. I call these tones “metal detector speech”. Now we speak English but the metal detector speaks in those tones. We can’t teach the machine to speak English, so we must learn what the detector is saying. In other words, we must learn metal detector speech. That takes years to refine. Jo Anna worked her yard with her rental machine, became discouraged, returned the machine and looked up www.theringfinders.com and gave me a call.
When she called we set up a time to meet and search. I arrived, questioned Jo Anna as to what she was doing, where she had walked that dog and where she believed the pendant would be. I set up my grid and started searching. As the pendent was lost only a few days ago, it would not be buried into the lawn, so I could ignore all the signals that were deep and not silver, and there were lots of those signals. It did not take long and I got a nice “hit” close to the surface and silver. Although I took out my pin-pointer to find it in the grass, I noticed the glint of the silver before I had to use the pin-pointer. There It was !!!, now it’s time to give the pendant back to the lady that makes it look beautiful.
I filmed the search and the recovery. It’s a short (5 minute) video, so if you are interested click on the like below and enjoy.
