Received a call from Jason yesterday requesting my service to locate his girl friend’s ring which she lost off her finger in tall grass at the campground they were staying over the weekend, and it was imperative that the ring be found!
I agreed to help him! Jason picked me up we drove to the area and I could see where they both had spent hours in the tall grass looking for the ring with no luck.
Within ten minutes I found the ring near by where they had cut the grass
Another happy client! Jason was so happy, thank you Jason, it was a pleasure to help you.
I got invited to hunt a church up north from in Visalia this past Friday with the idea that we would be able to recover lost artifacts (as well as silver coins and jewelry) for St. Paul’s Anglican Church. They’ve resided at the same location since 1949 but due to a disagreement(not going to get into it here) the congregation split and they Parish has to move out. It was hoped we would find some awesome stuff to give back but as with any metal detecting hunt, you can only find what’s there to be found. Hope you enjoy the video.
If you’ve lost something we can find it so call us sooner rather than later so we can help!
Received a call from Scott this morning requesting my assistance to help him find his office security fob and his car keys which he lost about two weeks ago in his back yard, Scott was hoping that all the snow would have melted by today and then he could find his fob but that was not the case. I meet up with Scott and he showed me the area in his yard where he thought the fob could be and within fifteen minute bingo found his Fob/keys and handed them back to Scott which was very happy to have them back, Scott told me he had racked the same area thoroughly where I found his Key/fob.
Thank you Scott for entrusting me to find your Keys/Fob.
A week ago, while vacationing on Cape Cod, I received a call from Leslie asking for my help. Her mom, Phyllis, recently lost a gold cross in her backyard when the chain broke and was very upset over the loss. The cross was a gift from her late husband, so it held special meaning to her. As soon as I returned from vacation, I went to search for the item. After approximately two hours of searching the yard and a compost bin, and using two different metal detectors, I located the cross in the lawn. Phyllis is thrilled to have this precious item back with her!
I received a call from Julie this evening at approximately 5:00 pm to ask me if I could come out and help find a lost Tungsten wedding band. Her husband Michael had just lost it in a school play ground while playing with his children in the sand. I said I would be there with in an hour.
I asked Julie how she found me. She had been searching the internet for a metal detector to rent and came upon TheRingFinders website. When I arrived I asked Michael a few questions and he told me he had already raked the area with no luck. He pointed out the area where he felt his ring had come off. Within minutes of setting up my V3i the ring was once again back on Michael’s finger. Another happy client!
Ever had the hankering for a good ol food fight? Well Josh had volunteered to help out his church youth group and that is exactly what was planned for the main event. It was outdoors on a large patch of thick Florida crab grass that the food flinging free-for-all took place. They had a great time throwing all sorts of stuff back and forth and it wasn’t until they began hosing each other off that Josh realized his ring was not on his finger.
The following day Josh decided to rent a metal detector and spent the next two days searching the thick grass without success. During his search to rent a detector Josh found theringfinders.com on line and gave me a call and explained his dilemma. I assured him that I would be more than happy to meet him and look for his ring and encouraged him to call me after he returned the rental.
Two days later Josh called and we agreed to meet at the “food fight site”! He showed me where the different stations were set up and then ended by explaining that the shaving cream fight mainly covered a certain area off to one side. So I set up my flags outlining the key areas and began systematically searching. I found a ton of pennies, which I found out later were also used during the event! It took about an hour and then came the magic moment! There was Josh’s ring, all caked in dried shaving cream and just waiting to be found. I immediately cleaned the ring with my drinking water and then texted Josh with the Good News!
Thank you Josh for your generous reward and keep up the good work with the kids!
If you need help finding your lost jewelry please give me a call–ASAP!
I received a call from Laura yesterday asking if I could help her to locate her husband’s wedding ring that she had accidently lost on Saturday morning either in her home or yard.
I met Laura at her home and she told me that on Saturday she was in the laundry room and her husband’s ring was lying on the counter. She picked up the ring and put it in her pocket and went about doing her house work, gardening chores, and shopping errands. It was not until later that afternoon that she realized the ring was missing from her pocket. She showed me shorts similar to the ones she had been wearing. The pockets were too deep for the ring to have fallen out of.
I checked her back yard, around the flower beds, her rock pond, the front yard, her truck, and garbage bags that she had put out for recycling. Two hours of searching and no luck. There was a kitchen garbage bag still in the house that I had not checked. Laura emptied the bag while I went back to recheck the pond. I heard her scream “I found it”. She was very excited and I was glad for her.
Laura asked me if I was an ex-police officer. When I asked her why, she replied that I was always questioning her with possible scenarios regarding the ring. I replied that I asked all these questions to try and trigger your memory, and to give me clues as to where the ring might be.
Laura then realized that she had cleaned up the kitchen and maybe she put the ring down on the counter top and without thinking wiped the top off and that was probably when the ring had fallen into the garbage container.
Another Happy Client! Thank you, Laura and Chris, for entrusting me and The Ring Finders to help you find your lost ring.
New Years Eve I received a call from Milton’s father, Mr. Mark, asking if he could borrow my metal detector to find his son’s lost ring?!! I explained that I normally do not loan out my detector but I would be more than willing to come over and look for his son’s ring. It took just a few minutes to walk over to Mr. Mark’s apartment and their I met Milton and his little family and listened to his story.
Milton said his ring was sort of loose to start with and he normally does not wear it, but since they were on vacation he decided to leave it on. It was a beautiful warm day (compared to the rest of the country!) and Milton was on the driveway playing ball with his two kids. At one point he began throwing the ball straight up, with two hands, and on his final and hardest throw he felt his ring go flying just as he released the ball. He did not hear it hit the concrete so figured it must have landed somewhere in the grass. So they began to search all the grass along the driveway and even used a rake hoping to expose the ring.
As I listened to Milton explain the details I felt very confident that we could find his ring somewhere in the grass. So I began grid searching.
After an hour or so and no ring I began to think maybe the ring landed on the roof and rolled off in another area. Still no luck. It was getting dark so I assured them that I would be back the next day.
Later that evening I remembered what Chris Turner said about using a test ring to narrow down the search area. So in my collection of old rings I have an assortment of copper rings used for plumbing that work great for test throws. Very similar to rings in size and weight.
So, New Years Day I met Milton and we did a few test throws. Sure enough the first throw landed in the grass and then the 2nd throw landed further and closer to the building. There were 3 foot high bushes along the front so I did a very thorough search of each bush and sure enough, there hiding at the base of one of the bushes was Milton’s ring!
Have something hiding that you just cannot find? Maybe I can help!
On Saturday, Jason lost his diamond wedding band while doing yard work. Family and friends helped to search the yard. Someone even tried to find it with a metal detector, but they had no luck. Not knowing where to turn, his wife, Toni, decided to search the internet for help. She found my information and gave me a call on Monday. That evening, I searched the property for a few hours, mostly in the dark, but was unable to locate the ring. I assured Toni and Jason that I would be back early Wednesday to continue the search, expecting that it would take quite some time given the size of the property. Five minutes into the search, I located the ring in their lawn. Jason and Toni were delighted!
