I received a call about a lost Man’s Titanium Wedding Ring in a sand volleyball court. While he was playing the next thing he knew was the ring went flying and disappeared into the sand. He friends helped him search and search for the ring with no luck. Once I started searching I received my first hit. I took my sand scoop to move the sand around and starting sifting through it. Then I heard a ting from the sand scoop and there was the ring. He was very happy to have the ring returned to him.

Lost Gold Wedding Ring Set On The Beach In Ocean City Maryland/Found

from Lewes (Delaware, United States)

I received a phone call from Diane asking for my help in finding her lost rings on the beach in Ocean City, Maryland between 143rd and 144th streets. Diane told me that she and her family had been vacationing in Ocean City, Maryland and that while they were on the beach on 08/10/18 she had lost her two wedding rings. Diane said that she had sat down in a beach chair at edge of the water where the waves were breaking and that she fell asleep. Diane said that when she woke up her left hand was laying on the wet sand and that her two wedding rings were missing from her left hand. On 08/14/18, I went to the beach where Diane had lost her rings and began a search for them. Diane had also mentioned that she had been sitting in an area of dry sand prior to going down to the water and she was really unsure of where she had lost the two rings. I did search an area of dry sand based on Diane’s memory of where she had been on the beach that day and the two rings were no where to be found. I then decided to search an area closer to the waters edge and after several passes I was able to recover the lost wedding band. I then knew that the engagement ring should be somewhere close to where the wedding band had been found. I then adjusted my search to an area about a foot away from where I found the band and a little closer to the water. The search adjustment was a success and I was able to locate the engagement ring. After returning home I sent Diane a text with a photo of her two rings and they were identified as being her lost rings. Diane requested that I keep her rings until 08/22/18 and on that date I turned the recovered rings over to Diane’s daughter who had driven to Bethany Beach, Delaware for a day of fun in the sun.

My wife woke me early this morning; my phone was ringing. I did not get to it in time to answer, but waited to see if the person calling would leave a message, he did. It was Matt, who had lost his ring at the beach the night before. I called him back immediately and we talked a bit, and from what he explained to me I thought his ring may be gone for good. The beach is one of the cleanest beaches in Southern California because the County cleans it daily with sifting machines that pick up virtually everything. I let him know that if he would meet me there in 30 minutes, that I would leave right away in order to try and beat the machines.

When I got there, I could see Matt out in the sand doing what I have termed, “the lost ring shuffle”, where someone is trying to find their ring by dragging their feet through the sand in grid lines. When I got out to him, I could see where the sifter had taken a swing very close to his grid lines, and also out on the towel line closer to the slope. He explained to me that he believed the sifter had gone outside the possible loss area. I set up to grid, turned my machine on, took one swing, got a good signal, put the scoop in and dumped the sand, and there peeking out was the ring. I reached down, grabbed it, and held it out to Matt, who was in total disbelief. He had told me that the night before he gave the ring to his wife to hold while he went to the water with their child. While he was gone his wife was dealing with their beach equipment when the ring fell off her finger, and was gone in the sand. She had a hard night, feeling guilty for the loss, but today all joy is restored. What a great morning. I then went home and had my breakfast and coffee.

Jose called last night about 7:00 PM asking if I was the guy who finds rings, and I told him I was definitely one of the guys who help people find their lost rings. He told me his wife had lost her wedding and engagement rings (they were soldered together) at the beach earlier that day. After we talked for while and I asked a lot of questions, I let him know I was on my way, and would let him know when I arrived.

When I got to the beach it was already dark, and they were waiting in the parking lot. I met his wife Esmeralda and we talked about the loss as we walked out to the area they believed the loss to have occurred. I found out that she had these rings for 17 years. Esmeralda remembered taking her rings off to put on sunscreen and putting the rings in her shorts pocket. Later as they were getting ready to leave, she shook her pants out, and ring was gone into the soft sand. They told me they had searched the sand for over 3 hours before they called me, so by the time I arrived it had been at least 4 to 5 hours since they knew the ring was lost. When we got back to the area the darkness made it difficult to identify the exact spot they were, and they gave me an estimated area to search, so I began. I kept working my way out pulling up bottle cap after bottle cap. Finally After they thought I was going out of the area they thought the rings might have been lost, I showed them the bottle caps. I had at least 60 by that time, and I knew that for every dig I make their anticipation rate goes up, and then down until people begin to get discouraged. When we discussed the possibilities, Jose and Esmeralda were basically ready to throw in the towel, but I said “look, none of us has to go to work tomorrow, so I will continue”. Even at that they went back over by the parking lot as I continued my search. I searched down the slope, and then began my search in the opposite direction from my beginning search, when after about 5 passes and over 100 bottle caps later, one broken bottle, and a total search time of about 2 hours, one more good signal, and I had a beautiful set of diamond rings in my scoop. I threw away all the trash, and headed back to the parking lot with the rings on my little finger. As I got closer Jose and Esmeralda saw me coming and rose to meet me. I was looking down at the sand when I explained how I searched each area without any luck, but when I touched on the last area, I said, “AND THEN I FOUND THIS” as I opened my hand to show the rings. Esmeralda immediately went to tears and gave me a big hug, while Jose paced back and forth in total disbelief. I know that after all that time of their searching, and then watching me pull up bottle cap after bottle cap, they thought it would not be possible to find the rings, but WE ARE THE RING FINDERS, and if it is there we can find it. What an awesome couple, what an awesome night!

Esmeralda sent the following testimonial:

Steve is an absolute God send! He is professional, kind, courteous and relentless! My husband and I were at Santa Monica Beach where I took off my wedding bands and placed them in my shorts pocket. About three or so hours later I realized that I did not have my rings on and that I had left them in my pocket. When I went to go look in the pocket, which I had hung on our beach chair, I found out with great disbelief, and immediate alarm that my rings were missing. I immediately started to cry and panic, while my husband and I dug through the sand all around us. Hours later we decided to ask the lifeguard if anyone turned any rings in to him but to our dismay, he said no. He did say however, that he had some cards for people who found lost jewelry. I called the person on the first card that was handed to me but the phone just rang and rang. I called again and still got no answer. My husband called the person, Steve Smith, using the information on the second card and he received a quick and friendly answer. We were concerned that it was close to 8:00 pm, which is when the beach parking lot closed, but Steve stayed calm and told my husband that he would find other parking and for us not to worry about that. That in itself let me know how great a person Steve was without even meeting him. We were assured that he would come out as soon as possible -and he did. My husband and I told ourselves that we had a lot of faith and hope that the person that God sent to us would find our rings, but we’re also realistic. The fact of the matter was that it was past 8 PM at night and dark, plus we were sitting on a huge beach- sure we gave Steve an approximation as to where we were sitting, but with so many beach visitors moving around in the sand all day long, what were the chances of the rings been recovered? Our hearts aches knowing that there was a chance that we would never recover the wedding bands that my husband placed on my finger at our wedding a little over 17 years ago. We went through so many emotions that night, including a lot of praying as well as a lot of crying. When we wanted to give up, Steve was the first to say that he had all night and that we would get them back. This gave me and my husband great hope once again. About 2 1/2 hours after calling Steve out, he came walking back towards us and let us know about the specific effort he made to find our rings. Steve let us know that he found a lot of bottle caps and other items that were not our rings. As he talked about the process, I felt a sense of dread and great loss but at the same time I felt thankful that Steve spent so much time and energy really trying to help us. Just then, Steve pulled out my wedding rings from his fanny pack. He kept talking but I couldn’t hear anything else out of his mouth, I just saw my cherished rings and immediately started sobbing and with much gratitude, I gave Steve the biggest hug. He was truly our Angel that night. My husband and I are very thankful beyond words for all the effort that Steve put in to find something that is invaluable to us. If you or a loved one has lost a ring or another item that a metal detector can locate, Steve is your man!

Friday afternoon I received a call from Madison. She had lost her ring at the beach earlier, and after a relentless effort to find it by her and her family, she got on the internet and found The Ring Finders where she got my name and number. She asked if would be able to help, and I let her know that I was on my way and would be there as soon as I could get there.

When I got to the beach and walked out, Madison met me and walked me over to the suspected area of the loss. I could see an area about 8 foot in diameter that had been scooped out and surrounded by a berm about 8 inches high; this where they had searched for the ring. She explained that her mother had given the ring to her 3 years earlier, and that it meant a whole lot to her. Her father told me that she had been tearfully distraught since she knew the ring was missing. They explained that Madison had taken it off and put it into a hat so as not to lose it, but not remembering, later in the day shook out the hat, and the ring was gone. They were on vacation from London, UK, and Madison thought it was lost forever. I got right to work, and after 3 passes in the grid, I received a solid signal in the berm on the edge of the scooped out area. I scooped out at least 3 times, where they had unknowingly buried it much deeper than it had already sunk into the sand. I finally had the ring in the scoop, pulled it out to show Madison who was overcome with joy, I mean LOOK AT THAT SMILE! It was so awesome to bring her joy back!

Ring lost at Ski Beach Found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Joe was enjoying his visit to Ski Beach on Mission Bay, at least until he lost his platinum wedding ring. He had gone down the the water’s edge to rinse his hands. when he returned back to the fire ring area where they were camped, he shook his hands to remove the water, when his ring flew off. He and others tried in vain to find the ring in the dry sand, but, no luck doing that. I met Joe there the next morning and after a few bottle caps that were reading 13-15, I got an 11 reading on my Equinox that proved to be his ring. A happy Joe is now able to get that ring resized and continue it’s story. Nice to meet you Joe and thank you for the reward.

Lost Gold Pendent Found in North Vancouver…

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

I got a call from a young man who lost a gold pendent, he told me that it was given to him by his father who was a fireman for 25 years and wore this pendent in over a 1000 calls. It was a gold firefighters helmet with the truck number inscribed on the front of the helmet and two dates on the underside. His father gave him the pendent when he retired and his son started in the same Fire Department and truck the day his father retired.

Needless to say it was very important to find this pendent and continue the story so one day his son could have it and know the history of these two great men that put their lives on the line to help others. So we discuss the search area and i start to detect and I’m getting nails and not much else. he shows me that he made a sifter and was checking for the ring but gave up. He dumped the sifter and guess what…It was in the dirt from the sifter! It’s funny where these irreplaceable items show up!

Smart Phone Lost at Huntington Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

I woke up this morning with an email from Justin who had lost his smart phone at the beach the day before, and was wondering what he could do to try to locate it. I immediately called his number which went to voice mail, then replied to his email asking him to call, so we could discuss the loss. When he called he told me he thought about renting a metal detector which I discouraged, because rental agencies usually rent out the cheapest detectors, and that would just cause a lot of frustration for someone unfamiliar with a detector. Knowing the beach and that the County is usually real good about grooming the beaches with sifting machines, I told him I would meet him at the spot as soon as I could get there to help him in the search.

When I got to the beach, I could see Justin out in the sand dragging his feet in a grid like manor. I walked out and we met. I began asking what had happened, and he told me that what he usually does is put his phone in the sand under his towel so no one would find it and take it while he went in the water. The problem this time was that when he was about to leave, he grabbed his towel and left for the car forgetting he had placed his phone in the sand. He ended up coming back to the beach and searching in the sand about 10:00 PM, but was unable to locate landmarks in the darkness and identify the spot he had been in earlier. I began my grid working my way from the outer most spot towards the other end of his parameters. I found a number of tent stakes and bottle caps, but no phone. I then passed the half way point in the search when I received a good signal, I carefully inserted my scoop behind the signal so as to not damage the phone. When I pulled out the scoop, there was the phone, but I noticed the screen was damaged, and thought I might have missed somehow. When I picked it up to show Justin, I asked if the damage had already been there, and he reassuringly told me it had been. He then went on to explain that this phone had traveled the world with him as he backpacked in many different countries and was full of the pictures of those experiences. Now how do you replace that? Made his day, and that’s what it is all about!

Justin sent the following testimonial:

“I forgot to dig my phone out of the sand underneath my towel after I was done body boarding one late afternoon. I’ve been hiding my phone underneath my towel ever since I started body boarding and such but I guess I got unlucky and forgot to dig it out this time. I walked to my car and realized that I didn’t have my phone and then rushed back to the area where I set my stuff. Having forgotten where I set my towel exactly, I probably spent a good hour or so combing the sands with my feet. I couldn’t find my phone although I recalled hiding it probably 2 inches under the surface of the sand. I went back later that night to try and find my device using Google’s find my android system. Still didn’t find it. I found Steve online and emailed him that same night and got an email back early the following morning. I called Steve and explained my situation and he offered to drive an hour down to the beach to help me out. The phone was still there according to Find My Device. I drove down to the spot and marked an estimate boundary in which I was certain the phone would be within. Steve greeted me and went to work right away. Using a grid system in the boundary I laid out, he found my phone after finding a lot of metal pins and bottle caps. It probably took around 30- 45ish minutes. It turns out I was combing the right area the night and afternoon the day before but I set my stuff a lot closer to the shore. Steve advised that I dry out my phone first since it looked like the waters came in over it, but fortunately the phone is water proof.

I’m really glad I contacted Steve in time as I had planned to find metal- detecting equipment myself and search for my phone. Steve explained why that was a bad idea when I called him that morning and you could observe for yourself why it was so just by watching Steve work. I also want to mention that Steve didn’t hesitate to offer his help on an early Thursday morning, just shortly before a doctor’s appointment! I had a lot of cool pictures and memories stored on that phone from my travels as well as important notes and documents for school and work. Not everything was backed up into the cloud so I was pretty upset at the thought that I would lose the fun memories I captured with my phone. Thanks a million, Steve!!!”
