Ring Found In The Snow At Stowe Mountain Ski Area, Stowe, Vermont

I got a call from a lady who lost her wedding ring while skiing at Stowe Mountain Ski area yesterday. She was extremely upset. Her ring’s triple bands represented her dog, her spouse and herself all as one. The employees at the ski area saw how upset she was and tried all evening to find it for her. I told her I could go look right away. She was actually calling from back home in Boston. I asked her if I found it, would she like me to mail it to her? She said “I will jump in my car and drive right back there!”

She gave me very good descriptions of the areas where she thought she may have lost it. The people at the ski area were extremely helpful and friendly, and gave me permission to search. So after about a half hour search, and hundreds of junk metal signals, I got a good signal under the chair lift. Digging down a few inches in the snow, there it was, sparkling bright and in perfect condition. I was sooooo happy for her! She thought she would never see it again. I immediately sent her a picture message. The people around Guest Services cheered.

After she got my message, she called me, hardly able to talk through the tears. She wanted to drive right up from Boston. I met her part way there, gave it to her and got my hugs!

Well, it’s the end of my first year with The Ring Finders. I am so glad that I found and joined this organization, and glad that Chris Turner put it all together. I had a great year, met some really nice, warmhearted people. There was only one uncompleted mission, which I hope to go back to next Spring, with some upgraded equipment.

I also want to thank all the people who gave me reward money, that was very generous, but unnecessary! Thanks to that, I was able to put some gas in the tank, upgrade my equipment and donate a bunch to one of my favorite charities, the Central Vermont Humane Society. That group of professionals and volunteers do an incredible job with reviving cats and dogs and finding good homes for them. All 3 of our dogs came from there!

Thank you and Happy New Year to all

Lost Gold Ring Near Strathcona Farmers Market Edmonton, Alberta

Michael  called me this morning to see if I would be available to help him find his lost gold ring. It belonged to his father and was of huge sentimental value to him. I told him I would be there in forty five minutes.

Michael had been checking his parking meter to see how much time he had left, lost his balance, and felt the ring fly off his finger but had no idea in which direction it had gone.  He thought it ended up on the Church property and had spent a couple of hours with his friends looking for it with no luck.  He had even had the Edmonton Police with a hand held detector looking for him.

I did a quick search of the area but did not find the ring so I decided to check the street.  With all the traffic, I had to dodge cars, and I felt my chances were slim that I would find it.  I did detect a tone, which  turned out to be a pop can.  I swung my coil again and only inches away from the pop can I heard the same tone again. Packed in about 2 inches of snow was the ring in perfect condition.  Considering that he had lost the ring 3 days prior, and all the traffic on that street, he was very, very fortunate.

Another Happy Client! Thank you Michael for your generous reward.

Peter called me yesterday to ask me if I could help him find his wedding ring.  He lost it in the back yard the previous evening while playing with his    dog.  He had fallen in the snow and felt his ring slip off his finger. Peter and his wife spent a couple of hours raking and pouring hot water to melt the snow but had no luck finding the ring.

I met up with Peter in his back yard and he showed me where he thought his ring should be. I searched that area as will as the surrounding area with no luck, only to find a bunch of roofing nails.   I stood back and analyzed the area where Peter fell and thought it either had to be in the neighbors yard or along the fence line.  I took out my pin pointer and searched along the bottom of the fence dragging my pin pointer underneath the boards and out popped the ring.

Another happy client, Thank you Peter for the generous reward.

 

Another Lost Wedding Ring Found in Snow at Killington VT Ski Area

from Burlington (Vermont, United States)
Contact: 1-802-461-8359

Had another wedding ring mission in Killington Vt this morning. Met some very nice people, too. We were successful thanks to his great location marking and memory, and it took only about 15 minutes! Got spoiled by the Killington ski area when they brought us up the mountain on a company snowmobile!

Last weekend he had been skiing in the woods, next to the ski trails, and took a minor fall. But, when he shook his snow-filled gloves out, the ring went flying into the snow. He and friends searched hard for about 6 hours, shoveling and sifting the snow, and even buying a metal detector from a local store. Not knowing if the detector was working properly, he gave me a call to help look. I was excited all week, looking forward to the challenge of the hunt!

So, he took today off from work and drove back up from New York City and met me there this morning. After getting all the permissions needed from the ski area, which was a lot of work for him, we went up and started the search. Before we started digging, I ran my detector on top of the snow all around the location he thought it should be at. I was about to give up and start digging in the 3 feet deep snow, when the glorious sound of metal being detected rang out! It was his cherished wedding band that he was never going to give up on.  (by coincidence, it was the 2nd platinum men’s wedding ring that I’ve found in Killington, in less than a month!) It was only about 5 or 6 inches deep and only about 3 feet from where they had searched so hard the weekend before.

We came prepared for an all day hunt, he even brought sandwiches for us. I figured it could easily turn into a full day or maybe even 2 or 3 return trips to the area after the snow had melted. It was very nice to see the ring reunited with a happy owner.

Lost Wedding Ring, Found In Huge Snowpile In Killington VT

from Burlington (Vermont, United States)
Contact: 1-802-461-8359

Hi Folks,

Last night I received an email from someone who lost his platinum wedding band. He and his wife and several friends were up from New Jersey to enjoy a snowy wonderland at Killington, Vt. They had rented a chalet near the ski area for their vacation, but were returning home the very next day… explaining why the word “emergency!” was in his message. Earlier that day they were having some fun on top of a huge snowpile when he realized he had lost his ring. They tried hard to find it and had no luck. He was looking into renting a metal detector when he saw my listing on TheRingFinders website. So, I called him late that evening and said I could be there at 8:00 the next day.

This morning I met them there. They were extremely nice young people, and volunteered to help look. I brought 2 detectors and some shovels, they searched around the edges of the pile with one detector and I searched on top with the other. I figured if we couldn’t find it this way, that we would have to start shoveling and checking each layer with the detectors. Within only about 15 minutes my detector went off. There it was! The beautiful ring had been stepped on and pushed deep into the snow. We all were very happy to see it! Wish all hunts were this easy!!

I was prepared to search all day, but luck was on our side this time. If we hadn’t found it today, things would have gotten much more complicated if we had to wait until Spring. They would have been back home in NJ, and I would have had to get permission from the landlord, go back to Killington and pray that it was still there so I could recover it and mail it down to them.

Hi. I recently joined The Ring Finders service and am very excited to start helping people find their lost jewelry. I can also help you look for just about anything important or valuable with metal in it, such as keys, property markers, water supply shutoffs, tools, etc. Don’t forget, the sooner we start looking, the higher the chance for our success! Mother Nature and possibly someone else could get to it before we do. On the other hand, I have found rings that were lost decades ago, too. They were down in the ground several inches, packed with dirt, but cleaned up beautifully. So, don’t give up!

Please see my listing in the Vermont section of the above directory, for more information and to contact me.

Thank you,  Mike

Received a call yesterday afternoon from Matt in regards to finding his ring which was lost last November after his girlfriends chucked it over the fence into somebody’s back yard after having a disagreement, I asked Matt why it took him this long to try and find his ring he said since it had snowed that day his ring would be buried and it would be safe there until spring, yesterday he was searching on the internet and found me and the rest is history.

Matt told me he had permission from the owner to look for his ring. Made arrangement to meet this morning at the lactation, arrived in the back yard where there was around two feet of snow lucky for me the yard size was only 33’ x 50’ with a deck and fenced; Matt told me it was a heavy gold ring with his initials. Searched the area for about 30 minutes with no luck, then bingo ring found! Underneath the table on the deck somehow the ring must have bounced off something and ended up there as you can see by the picture the ring was very large. Mat & Sam was very happy to get the ring back once again. Thanks Matt for entrusting me and the TheRingFinders to search for your ring.

I received a call from Adam this afternoon asking if I could find his wife’s wedding and engagement rings.  Yesterday, she had fallen while getting out of the car. She had not been wearing any gloves and when she shook her hand to remove the snow her rings had flown off. I met up with Adam one hour after his call and he showed me where he had shoveled and brushed the snow to the side where he thought the rings might be. He had also used his old metal detector which he had from years ago but with no luck. I found both rings within two feet of where he thought the rings were.

Thank you, Adam & Erin for calling me, and for the generous reward.

Happy New Year to you both!
