Palladium wedding band found in Glen Arbor, Michigan

from Traverse City (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-231-499-7526

I got a call from Rocky needing help finding his Palladium wedding ring. He was in shoulder deep water in Lake Michigan and felt his ring slip off his finger. We agreed to meet Friday morning at 9:00am.

I asked the normal questions when we first met. We marked off an area 50 feet wide by 70 feet long in the water. Rocky is 6 foot 5 I’m 5 foot 8. I searched out as deep as I could go then handed Rocky my Excalibur II. Rocky searched the deeper area I could not reach. We had no luck in finding the ring, so I started searching shallower all the way to the shoreline. I could tell Rocky was getting discouraged so I had him go search the condo to keep his mind busy. Ended up grid searching the 50 by 70 foot area twice from two different directions and did not find the ring. This took 5 1/2 hours to grid search the area twice.

After the 5 1/2 hours in the water I was whooped and ready to call it a day. Rocky just happened to walk back down to the beach. I had already had a couple conversations with him about what had happened. He stated his ring has never fallen off before and was not loose. I told him again something physical happened to cause the ring to slip off. He was still sticking to the story of having the feeling of his ring coming off his finger. I told him if he wanted his ring back he needed to trust me 100 percent. I told him that people are stressed when they find out there ring is gone and that moment is burned into there brain that is where the ring is at. I told him your mind plays games with you and we need to turn this into process of elimination. That something physical happened to cause the ring to come off. He thought about it for a couple minutes then said I trust you. Then I asked him what else has happened the last couple days.

He said well, I fell out of a Kayak a couple day ago up the river. He said he did not tell me about it because there is no way he went 1 1/2 days without his ring and not notice it missing. I told him we need to go to the spot he fell in asap. We paddled up to the spot then I fell out of the kayak in the same spot. When I stood up I saw a shinny round looking object on the bottom. I turned on the Excalibur II to make sure it was metal. I got a really loud nice signal. Bent down picked it up and handed him his ring. His reaction was about 8 NOWAY!’s On the paddle back down river I heard him ask himself how he went 1 1/2 days without noticing his ring missing.

Three 250 lb anchors found in Lake Michigan at Eastport, Michigan

from Traverse City (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-231-499-7526

I received a call from Nancy that the sand had moved and they cannot find the three 250 lb anchors they use to anchor there boat in Lake Michigan. The blocks weight 250 lb each and have a re-rod hook in the top.

She needed this done asap due to the dock being installed in 3 days. Its a lot easier finding the blocks before the dock is installed. I could not make it till the weekend, so, I had my backup go. His name is Dave Coates, he has over 100 ring returns to his credit. The more impressive part is 90 percent of them were before the internet was invented. Dave said it took about an hour to find all three blocks. They were out in neck deep water due to Lake Michigan is about 2-3 feet above normal lake levels right now. Dave did not get any pictures of the blocks so I attached a picture of Dave on another call with me.

I received a call from David who was calling for a friend that had lost his ring in the sand at the beach. David remembered me from 3 years prior when he called me for another friend who had lost his ring, which I found. This time his friend Brian had put his wedding ring in his hat when he went into the water, but forgot when his belongings were moved so the two of them could practice their Wifflle Ball skills. I let them know I would be able to come right away.

I got to the area, and David found me to wave me over the spot of the loss. He showed me the area, which did not seem to be large, right next to a trash can. I began my search grid, not finding anything. I then began a grid behind the trash can, and right next to it received a good signal. I had to scoop a couple of times because the target was moving, but when I raised the scoop, inside was a nice gold ring. I gave it back to Brian, who was happy he did not have to go home and have to explain to his wife how it was lost.😊 Another great day!

Matthew contacted me regarding the loss of his wife’s ring. They were at a friend’s house for 4th of July, out on the backyard deck that overlooks the city watching fireworks, when she removed her ring and it dropped in the darkness. This was a ring her mother had given her, so it had a strong sentimental value. She heard it hit the deck, and then it was gone. They searched for it in the darkness thinking it may have gone through one of the cracks in the deck because it is a thin ring, or gone over the side into the leaves and brush. We made arrangements to meet later in the day for the search.

I got to the house, and met Matthew and his wife. They showed me what had happened, and where she was standing when the ring dropped. It was close to the side where there was a chain link fence closely positioned to the retaining wall that the deck was built on. I began my search under the deck to eliminate that area as a possibility. I then went into the area between the fence and the wall which was only about 2 feet wide narrowing down to about 8 inches at the bottom which was thick with dead leaves. I could not use my detector, because of the closeness of the chain link fence, nor could I use my standard pin pointer for the same reason. I had to use a special pin pointer in order to get close to the fence without getting false readings. I worked that area moving along slowly, finding pieces of the fence from when it was installed. I searched about 8 feet when one of the signals turned out to be the ring. When I brought it out of the leaves, Matthew who was watching from the deck above could not believe it was found. I handed it to him, and he handed it to his wife. They were both very happy, and it was great to see her smile after getting the ring back.

9/5/19 Lost Wedding band in Lbi NJ Found by Matt St.Germain

from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-732-581-0285

One day ago I received a message late at night from Megan. While She and her husband Mike and their children were visiting Lbi and spending a day at the beach, Her husbands wedding ring slipped off his finger into the surf while he was swimming during high tide. Based on photos of where they were set up on the beach I went out there during low tide and I started gidding an area on the slope thinking it may have wound up there. After a few hours my hunch was right, I heard a nice tone loud and clear then bam! Sure enough it’s his ring! She was very happy when she saw the photo I sent. I will be meeting her husband on Saturday to return it. Another great ending!

My third successful recovery in less than 12hrs. A new personal best! While i was at the beach doing my second recovery, Chris called me and left me a message. While him and his wife were at the beach, Around 8:30pm he decided to go for a dip. As soon as he entered the water he felt his wedding ring slip off into the surf. He found me on the Ring Finders website. I called him back and made arrangements to meet him on the beach at 3am. He was in the water about 3-1/2hrs after peak low tide which is helpful. I met him and he showed me the area where they sat. I started my search towards the bottom of the slope as i felt it would be in that area and within 5mins Chris had his ring back! He was shocked and extremely happy and relieved. You see, His wife is pregnant and a week late with their first child!. At least now he had one less thing to worry about! Congratulations and best of luck to you both! Another wonderful ending!

Lost Pendant in Long Branch NJ Found by Matt St.Germain

from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-732-581-0285

Earlier today i was contacted by fellow Ring Finder Dave Milsted. He referred me to a woman named Patty. While at the beach in front of their condominium building with her husband and grandchildren. Her husband shook out their beach bag and unfortunately in the process her Star of David pendant fell out of the bag somewhere. They tried to find it but were unsuccessful. I made arrangements with her to do a search in the evening. Her poor husband was very upset that he had lost it. I was determined to find it. She met me at the beach and showed me where they were sitting approximately. I searched the area with no luck. I then began to widen the search area and Patty then approached me and told me she didn’t think they were that far. But i told her it can get moved by the beach rakes and also the lifeguard stands are never in the exact spot each day. So i kept expanding the area and after about 30-45 mins, About 20ft away from where she estimated they were sitting, I found it! She was overjoyed! I am so happy i was able to find this very important sentimental pendant for her! I never get tired of these happy endings!
