I got a call from a gentleman from Alaska who was vacationing in Southern California. He was calling for Naim who was also vacationing in Southern California, only Naim was here from Paris, France. He had been at the beach with a friend, and wanted to go in the water, so he took his rental car key, wrapped it in a plastic bag, and buried it so no one would take it while he was away. The problem occurred when he was ready to leave. He and his friend grabbed their belongings, and walked off to the car to leave, only to find that they had left the key in the sand. They immediately went back, and searched the sand, but were unable to find the key. It is very hard to pinpoint an area in the sand after having left for even a short while. I let them know I was on my way.

When I got to the beach I met Naim and his friend. They showed me where they had been digging and combing the sand, so I began my search there. I covered the complete area without finding the key. I let Naim know that I would expand the search area which relieved him because he knew it had to be there. I continued my grid, and after 2 passes dug up a plastic bag. I reached down, and pulled it up, and there was the key wrapped up nice and tight. Naim was very happy. He was going back to Paris in just a few days, and I was glad to give him a bit of American hospitality.

Khrysta called about 7:30 PM in dire need of metal detecting service. She had buried her keys on the beach so that she could go in the water without worrying someone would take them. The problem was that when she and her friend were ready to leave, they packed everything up and went back to the car, a good distance from their original position. Needless to say, it seemed an impossible task to find them again, as there were very few people, or other landmarks to get them back to the exact spot they had been in. I let her know I would be there as soon as I could get there.

When I got there Khrysta and her friend met me, and took me out to the area they believed the loss to have occurred. As I looked over the area under the light of my headlight, I could see where they had searched, so I began my grid. I made about 8 passes, When I noticed another area where they had searched, and asked if that might have been where they had been. They weren’t sure at that point, but felt that I was searching in the most likely spot, so I continued my grid. It was about 4 more passes, and I got a signal, dug and saw this big pink light stick in the scoop. Khrysta and her friend saw it too, knew that I had found the keys, and came right over. They were very happy. Now they could go home without worry. Glad to have helped!

I got a call from a young lady who lost her rental car key in the sand at the beach. I had some previous commitments, so I was not able to go and do the search until many hours later. She decided to do the search when I was available later in the evening, and I called her when I was on my way.

We agreed on where to meet, and she and a friend arrived to help me locate the search area. We went out, and I began my grid of the sand. It was about 75 feet to each point of the grid, but I just kept to the pattern. After about 5 grid lines, and many bottle caps, the ladies went back to the car they arrived in. That is when I found the key. I walked out to them. They had gone to retrieve an electronic lantern to help them see better in the darkness. I went over and teased that I thought they had left me, and was assured that was not the case, when I held out the key to their surprise. They were very happy, because the rental company had been a bear for them to deal with all day. Anyway, a great end of the day!

I got a call from Christopher about a key he lost in the sand at the beach. It seems he was using another key on the key ring to cut something when his car key snagged on something, and the blade of the key snapped off of the plastic door opener it was attached to, and flew into the sand. After thoroughly searching for it he found me on The Ring Finders web site, and asked for help. After describing what had happened, I let him know I would be there as soon as I could to conduct a search for him.

When I arrived, Christopher took me over to the area of the loss. He explained again what happened, and showed me where he believed the key to have flown. I turned my detector on, swung once, got a good signal, and after scooping the sand, had his key in my scoop. He was so happy, and relieved because he could not leave without the blade of the key. A very short search, made an extremely happy gentleman!

I was contacted last night by Linda. She had been at the beach with her 2 children enjoying the day. When they were ready to leave she realized her keys were gone, and she had to drive back to Phoenix, AZ. After looking unsuccessfully for her keys, she was able to find and contact me. I could tell she was very distraught at the thought she would be stranded in a strange place with her children, and told her I would be on my way immediately.

When I got to the beach it was already about 8:00 PM, but that does not make a difference, as I can search in the dark as well as the day. Linda led me out to the area where she and her children were playing. I asked a series of questions in order to narrow down the search area, and then began my grid. I was finding a lot of metal, bottlecaps, tin foil, etc. After about 7 passes, a really strong signal reverberated in my headphones. I dug, and could see something different in the scoop. I reached in and there were Linda’s keys. I held them up with my headlight shining on them, and she came running over with an overwhelming show of emotion and gratefulness. She went from despair to joy in an instant. What a blast to see this transformation occur!

I got a call last week from a gentleman who was on vacation from Switzerland with a friend, and staying with a another friend a the beach. It seems as though they were out at the beach sitting watching the waves, that the key their friend had given them to enter the house was lost in the sand, and they were unable to find it after about 2 hours of searching. I told them I would be able to be there in about 30 minutes, and was on my way.

When I got to the beach I found them waiting at beach bar, and they took me out to the area of the loss. They showed me where they had been sitting, so I began my search. It took me about 3 passes, and then I got the sound I was wanting to hear. I put the scoop in and had the key. The guys were very happy to have it back, wanting to not feel as they let their friend down by losing his key. Some thankful guys for sure.

Truck Key Lost in Church School Playground in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA…Found and Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I received a call from the pastor of a local church who explained that one of the staff of the attached school had lost her truck key while installing some new equipment in the school’s play area. The key had been lost for a couple of days, and the pastor and staff were in a meeting when the lost key was brought up. He mentioned the possibility of renting a metal detector to use in conducting the search. That is when Heather, a lady that we knew a few years back when our son’s played football together remembered I had told her about my metal detecting service. She found my number and gave it to the pastor. I was only about 25 minutes away, and agreed to come immediately to do the search.

When I got to the church, I met with Heather who brought me to the playground to show me what had happened. She explained how they had gotten sifters together, and planted toy dinosaurs and toy jewels in the sand to make a game out of finding things in the sand for the children, hoping that one of the children would dig up the key in the process, no luck. I started my search, and was getting too much interference from the screws holding the 2×4’s of the equipment together. We were able to move the pieces out of the way, which enabled me to conduct a thorough search of the area. It was then I received the tone I was listening for, and told Heather so. I took my sand scoop and had to scoop a couple of times, and then there it was. We brought it into Maureen who had lost the key. Needless to say Maureen was very happy to have her key.

Mercedes Electronic Key Lost at Manhattan Beach, CA…Found.

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I received a call from a young man Wednesday evening, explaining how he had lost the electronic key to his Mercedes, and asked if I would be able to help. It had happened just a couple of hours before, so I knew the likelihood of a recovery was good. We arranged to meet within a half hour, and I was on my way.

When I got there he explained that he had left the key on his towel when he went into the water, and when he picked up the towel, the key vanished. He and his friends had searched the area quite thoroughly before I got there, as I could tell by the grid lines in the sand where he took me to. I began my search, and came up with numerous bottle caps and other metal debris, but no key. It was then when I got out of the search area, that I got a good hit in my head phones, and dug. There in my scoop was the key, which when seen, caused the young man to run over an greet me with shouts of joy and hugs. It must have been a sight to see. He did not want his picture taken, but his friend volunteered for a picture. A fun day indeed.

I received a call from Maxim who explained to me that he had lost his car key as he was walking to the water to go surfing about 6:30 in the morning. I got the call about 11:00 AM, and he told me he had been searching for the key all morning. I told him I would be there quickly.

When I got to the location Maxim was waiting for me. I found out that he had lost his only key to his car, so there was really no where for him to go until it was found. He showed me the area where he thought it was lost, and I could see where he had searched by the grid lines in the sand made from his hands and feet dragging in the sand. I set to grid the same area, because he was so sure of where it had dropped, and I knew that sand will move things around when someone does a hand search making an item very hard to find. I did a grid, and then a cross grid; nothing! I proceeded to question more, and decided to grid towards the entrance to the beach. I searched about 10 feet when I had a good hit. I scooped once, nothing in the scoop. I looked at the spot to set the scoop in again when I saw the tip of the key sticking up.

I reached down raised the key, and Maxim could not believe it was where I found it. I told him it happens all the time, people don’t always have the perfect recall we would like to have, so we as “Ring Finders” have to ask a lot of discerning questions in order to help probe the memory. Just so happy to see his smile knowing he was going to be able to get back into his groove.

Irene called today saying she had lost her car key at the beach. She knew where it was lost, so I figured I would be able to help her find it. I was able to get to the spot in about 45 minutes, and meet with her.

She showed me the spot, and I began my search. I went completely over the area she showed me finding numerous pieces of metal but not her key. I then asked a couple of more questions to be sure we had the right spot, she was sure so I began another search of the same area, and then found the key. Sometimes it is important to rework an area, because the position of the item being searched for might be turned in a particular way, that it can only be heard when crossed by the coil going a certain direction, another reason to cross grid when you know the area is certain.

Well Irene told me that if I was unable to find her key, it was going to cost her about $400 to replace because of the type key it is. I am glad to have been a help to her, and happily send her on her way; nice smile.
