Lost Ring in backyard Canton, Connecticut. Found!

  • from Stonington (Connecticut, United States)

“Keith was very professional and thorough in his process. After I spent 6+ hours of searching my backyard with a budget metal detector (and over 2 hours of visual searching), Keith was able to locate my platinum wedding band in 45 minutes. He documented the entire search and even took the time to teach me a few tricks to use with my budget metal detector. Hopefully, I won’t require Keith’s services in the future, but if I do, I would absolutely reach out to him again as he definitely is a pro!” – Jonh Blase

How to Find a Lost Ring in the Yard with a Metal Detector Ashville, Alabama…

I received a phone call from Shayna on Wednesday evening (August 18, 2021) stating that she had lost her engagement ring on Monday while walking in her yard in Ashville, Alabama.  Shayna and her fiancé tried looking for it with a metal detector, but were unable to find it.  I was off on Friday, so we arranged for a search that morning.

I arrived at their home in Ashville, AL on Friday, August 20, 2021.  Shayna showed me the area in her yard where she thought the ring had slid off her finger.  She told me that the ring was 10k rose gold with diamonds.  It was her fiancé’s grandmother’s ring.  I began a grid search with my Minelab Equinox 800.  After clearing the general area Shayna told me that the ring should be in, I expanded my grid search.  Soon after, Shayna told me that she had to be honest and that it was actually a ring toss.  She said that she had immediately regretted throwing the ring.  This happens a lot; people have disagreements and sometimes rings go flying.  We’re all human.

With this new information, I had Shayna show me exactly where she was walking and how she tossed the ring.  It was a sideways toss.  I also had her fiancé show me where he remembered her standing when it happened.  Her fiancé said that she was about 5-10 feet further than Shayna remembered, which was in an area I hadn’t searched yet.  I expanded my grid search in that direction and soon after I found Shayna’s ring!  The grass was on the taller side, so it easily hid that beautiful 10 karat rose gold engagement ring.  Both Shayna and her fiancé were relieved and glad to have it back!

I’m always happy to help and blessed to be a member of Chris Turner’s online directory of metal detecting specialists, The Ring Finders.

Lost Platinum Wedding Band In Los Angeles, CA Back Yard…Found.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)


I got a call this evening from Shannon wondering if I would be available to find a ring for her boss Dave. I said I could leave as soon as possible. She would get back to me to arrange a time to meet him at his house. When she called back I knew I had to leave right away because of traffic, if I was to get there in a reasonable amount of time.

Dave was getting some professional yard renewal done which caused there to be mulch scattered into his swimming pool. He was going to swim a few laps, but wanted to clear out some of the floating debris, so he started scooping the mulch into his hands and throwing it back into the garden. It was then when he felt his ring come off in the direction he was throwing. The area didn’t seem too big so he began searching, but there had been a very generous amount of fine mulch placed in the garden that seemed to swallow the ring. Dave searched and was astonished that his ring was so hard to find, as the area of the loss was not that large. He then began an Internet search to try to find a way he could find his ring, and found me through The Ring Finders.

I realized that I needed to change my coil from the 11 inch to the 6 inch in order to maneuver in and around the plants, also to discriminate the different metals that were in the flower bed. There were speaker wires, and steel clips that held the sprinkler system that I had to deal with, so I needed the small footprint on my coil to be able to find the ring without it getting masked out by the other metals. In about 10 minutes using the detector and pin pointer, I was able to locate Dave’s ring, a ring he has had for 15 years now, found a little outside the area he had originally thought it should be. It was certainly great to see his joy returned, and the ring’s story continued.

If you lose your ring or other metal item of value, call as soon as possible. I will work hard to help you find what you thought might never be found again. I search,  Beverly Hills, Hermosa Beach, Huntington Beach, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Malibu, Manhattan Beach, Newport Beach, Rancho Palos Verdes, Redondo Beach, Santa Monica, Seal Beach, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, Torrance, Venice Beach, and all parks, yards, gardens, and ponds (to 5 foot depths) in all of Orange County, all of Los Angeles County, and Ventura County.

Lost Wedding Band…Found At Boone, Iowa


A guy named Guy sent me an email last month about his lost wedding band. He was participating in a mud run on ski hills and lost his ring. Lucky for him he had a GoPro camera on that day because he was able to determine on what hill the ring slipped off.

At the top of a hill called Abby’s Alley (coincidently his wife’s name is Abby) he had his ring on, when he got to the bottom and got a glass of water he noticed it was gone. Today he had his children along and we all went about halfway up the hill. He said he thought when he lost it he was sliding down the hill in mud and using his hands to slow himself down.

So I started my search in the middle of the path, my first hit was a penny type signal, my second hit was his ring! I looked down and could see an edge of it in the dirt. Man I like those quick hunts. He couldn’t believe I found it so fast and was very happy to have his ring back.

Best of luck to all the ringfinders,

Sentimental Ring Found, (Hillview Neighborhood) Edmonton, Alberta

I received a call from Marlene on Christmas Eve asking if it was possible for me to find her Dad’s ring. 10 days ago he had been brushing the snow off his car with his bare hands when his ring flew off. I told her that if the ring was on the ground I would find it. She described the ring as gold, very large, and having much sentimental valve as it was a 35 year’s of service award from the automotive industry when her dad retired.


Today, Boxing Day morning, I meet Marlene at her condo complex and she showed me where her dad’s car had been parked that evening and also mentioned that he had been out looking for the ring a couple of times and had piled a mound of snow on the front lawn and that the ring could be there. I started my search and had Marlene move her vehicle from her parking spot so I could search that area. I found the ring where her car had been in about two inches of hard packed snow. When Marlene’s father arrived, I walked him over to where the ring was laying in the snow. The smile on his face was proof that this ring was very sentimental for him. He and his daughter were extremely pleased to have the ring back.  Although Aron declined to have his picture taken with his ring for our “book of smiles”, he did give permission to have his ring published. Thank you for entrusting me and “The Ring Finders”. Happy New Year!
