Wedding Ring Set lost at Topanga State Beach, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

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

Genevieve contacted me late yesterday afternoon asking if I could help in finding her wedding set (engagement ring and wedding band). I asked her a few questions, and she let me know that the loss had happened not too long before her call which encouraged me at the possibility of a recovery. I told her that I would leave immediately in order to not allow any more time to elapse, causing the recovery to be much harder. I then asked her to secure the area, so that it would not be disturbed any further, and I was on my way.

When I got to the beach, I met her husband Carlo who led me to where Genevieve was waiting. They had laid out towels to secure the area where they thought rings had been lost. We discussed what had happened, and then I began the search. After about 3 short passes I got a good signal, dug, and in the scoop was Genevieve’s wedding band. I held it up, and said #1, she was so excited, as was Carlo. I continued my search working out of the area we discussed when I received another good signal, looked down and could see a small part of the edge of the second ring. In went the scoop, and out came the engagement ring. Needless to say, there were two very happy people at the beach yesterday. They had totally given up hope before they called. The call to me was a last resort. I am so glad I was able to answer that call, and restore their joy. Great day!

Heirloom Pendant and Chain Lost in Malibu, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

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

I received an email from Aarti last night regarding a pendant and chain she lost that day. She had been at the beach, and realized after she left that it was missing. This pendant her mother had made, after her father died 2 years ago. It had a little lens inserted in it, that when held up to the light enabled the viewer to read a special prayer dedicated to her father. She searched her car, and every other place it could have possibly been with no luck. She then surmised that it must be at the beach, lost somewhere in the sand. she called, and we discussed all of the possibilities, and arranged to meet this morning for a search.

When we met, Aarti took me to the area, and explained what she believed to have happened. We discussed the possibilities, and I told her how I would conduct my search, and then began my search. She told me that she was going to the car to look in that area just to see if it may have fallen off there, and I continued my search. I kept searching, finding numerous bottle caps, and other small pieces of metal. I then got a good strong repeatable signal, and when I dug the chain came out. I scanned the spot again, and in the same hole was the pendant. I looked to the area of Aarti’s car, and saw she was sitting there, so I gathered my equipment and started towards her. She saw me coming, and walked over. I told her that I thought I had been detecting long enough, to which she gave me a quizzical look. It was then that I held out my closed hand, she open hers, into which I dropped to her surprise, the pendant and chain. She was so happy, and relieved to have this special piece of jewelry back. I was so happy to have been able to help her today.

Wedding Ring Lost at Venice Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

I woke up this morning and checked my email. I found that I had received an email from Clemens about his wedding ring that he had lost the night before. I asked if he would call me so I could ask him about the loss. He called and described what had happened, and everything seemed to be in his favor, so I told him I would meet him at the beach as soon as I finished my breakfast. Clemens and his family are here from Vienna, Austria, and I knew it would be sad to have to leave such a cherished possession behind when he had to go home.

When I got to the beach Clemens and his young son met me and took me to the spot of the loss. He explained what happened, and I figured there was a good chance of a recovery. I began my grid, and made about 5 passes. I stopped to talk to Clemens when behind me I heard the sound of a tractor. It was the County beach cleaner towing a sifting machine behind the tractor, and he was stopped wanting to begin his pass right where I was looking for Clemens’ ring. Also this was in the wet sand where they never usually clean. Now in all of the years I have been helping people, never have I experienced the greedy audacity of the County employees like today, he knew what I was looking for. This guy wanted to get this ring before I did. I told Clemens not to move and make the County guy go around the area we searching, which he finally did. I made 2 more passes, and boom, Clemens’ ring in my scoop. He was very happy, as was I to be able to hand the ring back to him. Another great day!

Car Key Lost at Santa Monica Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

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

I had just finished dinner last night when I received a call from Cagil who had lost his car key in the sand at the beach. He had gone surfing, and buried his key at the high tide line so no one could find it while he was in the water. He had marked the area with a stick, in order to find it when he got out. What happened though was that while he was surfing, someone moved the stick, so he was unable to pin point the exact area where his key was. Cagil searched for over 2 hours, and was very frustrated at not being able to find his key, and the tide was rising. He then found me on The Ring Finders web site, and I told him I would be there as soon as I could get there.

When I got to the beach, I met Cagil’s friend Easy, who contacted Cagil, then we all went out to the spot where Cagil remembered burying his key. I began my search with no signal whatsoever. Cagil then directed me to another spot where he thought the key might be. I searched one side of the area with nothing, then I moved to the other side, and on the first pass got a solid signal. I scooped, and shook out the sand. There in the bottom of the scoop was the key. Needless to say, Cagil was very happy, not only because all of his belongings were in the car, but also the parking lot closed after dark, and he would have gotten a substantial ticket for having his car there. Well he was also able to finally get out of the wetsuit he had on for hours. It was very nice to be able to help him out last night, and see him happy when I left.

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-699-0521

Aloha,

On Saturday March 10th 2018 I noticed on Craigslist a lost Gold necklace and ring which was LOST at Waimea Bay on the North Shore of Oahu. I was previously there hobby hunting but in the water earlier that morning. So, I replied to the post and I got in touch with Jessica. Jessica was more than happy to give me the info needed so i could narrow the search area as it is 9:45 in the evening and visibly would be poor. I packed up the equipment and kissed the wife and kids good night. I arrived at Waimea bay and start the search. almost 2 hours into the search and after many coins and rubbish I FIND THE JEWELRY! I was so excited to text Jessica while standing on the shoreline for a meeting the very next day. She agreed and we met up in Salt lake Where I was able to return her precious items. This hunt was very spontaneous and yet Successful. Thank you Jessica for allowing me to reunite your MISPLACED ITEM… Happy to find it but excited its back in the rightful owners hands. Below is a clip of the journey!!!

ALOHA…

Found! Diamonds and Gold Wedding ring at Log Castle during lowtide… Langley Washington!

from Seattle (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-206-651-4779

Last weekend, Corianne was digging up bait shrimp during lowtide at her family-owned vacation rental, The Log Castle Bed & Breakfast, https://www.vrbo.com/1015151  when she realized she had lost her custom made white gold and multi diamond wedding ring! And since the sand was like quicksand while digging, it could be very deep in one of the holes they made digging up sand shrimp…

She emailed me after  purchasing a detector and having no luck searching with her husband. Unfortunately my schedule wouldn’t allow me to hunt for it for at least a week after she had lost it. The soft sand and tides could really engulf it in that time, but it was worth trying.

After a week, I was able to take a road trip up there, and after searching for about 3 hours, surrounded by bald eagle nests and at least 3 eagles  and about 25 seagulls watching me work… I found it!

It was an emotional reunion and a great location to hunt at, despite the quicksand like conditions… and I will be camping on the property as an added bonus! Maybe some bald eagle photos to follow…

Diamond dazzler!

 

Lowtide @ Log Castle … LOCATED!

 

Gold Ring for Proposal Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA…Found and Joyfully Returned.

I had just gotten home from the ring return for the twin sisters last night, and was waiting for my wife to come home with dinner, when I received a call from Jessie regarding a ring loss at the beach. He had a relative from back East visiting, and there was a marriage proposal out on the sand at the beach. Well Mark was proposing to Taylor with Taylor’s mother’s ring set, when sometime during the celebratory act, part of the set was dropped in the sand. They searched for it, but were unable to locate it. Jessie found me on the internet, and called. I let him know that as soon as my wife got back, I would woof my food down, and go immediately to the beach to do a search.

When I got there Jessie, Mark and Taylor met me and took me to the area they believed the loss to have occurred. Jessie had drawn a square line outlining the area they believed the ring to be. I began my search, and on the second pass I got the one only signal. I scooped, and there was the glint of gold in the scoop from the high intensity light coming from the headlight I had on. I reached in and pulled out the ring and gave it to Taylor. Needless to say, there was much rejoicing out on the beach. Taylor was able to reunite the ring with its partner, and their marriage proposal ended on a very happy note, smiles all around!

Taylor sent the following testimonial:

“It was a great first day in Hermosa Beach, CA and even better when Mark proposed at sunset. For me, it was truly special how Mark asked me with my mother’s wedding ring, but during the excitement the ring was dropped. It soon turned extremely stressful when the sun had completely gone down and the water was coming up.

Steve Smith showed up quickly and found the ring in no time. It meant a lot to all of us that the ring was located. He was a great help during this stressful time and he truly cared about helping us find the ring. I would not hesitate to call him again if needed!”

Last Friday morning I woke and checked my email, and found that Yessi had emailed me at 1:40 AM in desperation regarding a ring her sister had lost at the beach the night before. After I emailed her back, Celene her sister called, and I told her I would perform the search the same day even though we were having our second heaviest rainstorm of the year (good to have waterproof machines). It was about 10:00 PM the previous night when Celene removed her ring to fix her hair. She did this because the ring was very thin, her hair would catch on it, and become a nuisance. They were on one of the lifeguard towers when during the fixing of her hair she dropped the ring. She heard it hit the floor of the tower, but when they looked for it, it had disappeared. They then thought it might have slipped between the boards of the floor into the sand below. They looked there under and around the tower for the ring, but it was gone. Yessi would not let this go because she knew this was special to her sister. The ring had been given to her by her parents 14 years prior when she was a young teenager, and she wore it every day since.

When I got to the site the rain was coming down pretty good, so I donned my rain gear, got my machine, and went to the tower to search. I knew this would be a good time because I figured there would be no one out detecting to maybe have found it, and I knew also that the County beach sifters would not have been used on the beach with the wet sand. I searched in the area where I thought she might have been standing (I had to guess because Celene was not able to be there to show me), and widened my search out to where I thought the ring could have possibly bounced to, with no luck. I then began to search behind the tower and found a bottle cap. I removed the bottle cap, scanned again, got a nice foil sound in the headphones, and scooped up a very thin diamond ring. I called back to let Celene know that I found it, and we arranged to meet at a park on Sunday afternoon because of her work schedule. When she got to the park her sister was with her, which was great. It was even more unique to find that they were twins, a special bond for sure. What a great weekend that became. More smiles made!

Custom 22K and Sapphire Ring Lost in Park in Torrance, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

At about 8:00 PM last night I received a call from Sri who had lost his ring while throwing a ball to his daughter earlier in the evening. This ring had been custom made for him in India. He had been back and forth to the park 3 times looking for it since 5:30 PM without any luck. Sri’s wife found my information on The Ring Finders web site, and he called. I told him the because it happened at a public park, that I would come immediately to do the search, so as to not allow for anything to cause the search to become more difficult or impossible, such as someone finding the next morning while on a walk, or the city mowing the grass.

When I got there Sri and his friend met me and took me to the spot where he was standing when he threw the ball. We discussed the trajectory and force with which the ball was thrown, and then I began my search where I thought was the most likely spot to start. As I was making my first pass with my detector and high intensity head lamp, Sri’s friend was walking with me to my left. I would look left and right, and the light would cover the ground. I was about half way through the first pass, when the light from my head lamp caused a glint that caught Sri’s friend’s attention, and when he reached down, he came up with the missing ring. Needless to say, there was a lot of celebrating last night. Sometimes it takes an outside observer to think outside of the box, and maybe look where you don’t think the lost item might be, and I think that is what happened last night. I wasn’t emotionally involved, which allowed me to move the search area to one that may not have been covered, and enabled us as a team to make the recovery. A great night indeed!

Wedding Ring Lost in Backyard in San Pedro, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

I received a call late this morning from Steve who had lost his wedding ring while gardening in his backyard. He had been getting his roses ready for the upcoming spring growing season mulching the area around each of his plants. It had been a cold day, and he had felt the ring a bit loose on his finger, but did not think much about it until later when after he had mulched all of his plants, he noticed it was gone. He looked all through the garden with no luck, and then found me on The Ring Finders web site. I let him know that I would be there as soon as possible, and when ready, I was on my way.

When I got there Steve took me to his yard, and showed me where he had been working. There was some wire to some lights that he was able to move, and some solar lights that I figured on working around. I was able to get to all of the areas that Steve showed me, but was unable to get a signal for the ring. The solar lights were providing a bit of a problem, but I worked around them as needed. I then went over the entire grass portion of his yard which was thick St. Augustine grass finding a dime and a penny. We talked, and then decided that we should detect the contents of the green waste bin, so Steve went out to get that ready. I told him I would go back once more and check the outer perimeter of the flower bed once more. I also worked closer to the solar lights, and near one was getting two signals, one strong one from the light post and another. I pulled the coil, and was still getting the second signal, and it was in the gold zone on my detector. I put in the pin pointer, and underneath a stalk of grass was his ring. I grabbed it and went out to tell Steve I had his ring, wherein he gave me a hug; he was so happy. It was so great to restore his joy! Another great day!
