Captiva Island — Ring Lost in Gulf Found and Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

We received a call from a gentleman who had lost his gold wedding band while playing football with his son in knee deep water.  After trying to search for the ring themselves with no success they decided to search the internet to find out how to find a lost ring.  The Ring Finders and my contact information pulled up and he gave us a call.

My wife and I made arrangments to meet them at their gulf side vacation cottage later in the afternoon.

Upon our arrival we gathered our metal detecting gear and we headed out to the beach.  He showed us the area where he and his son were throwing the football and the direction he felt the ring fly off.  Within just a few minutes I heard the nice low gold tone on my metal detector.  Sure enough, the ring was in the scoop!

He and his wife were ecstatic to have the ring back and we are happy to be a part of another successful ring recovery!

Sanibel Island — Diamond and Gold Pendant Found and Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

We received a call from this lovely gal who had lost her 1 carat diamond pendant in the front yard of her home.

While taking her dogs out, the dogs became entangled in their leashes around a tree.  In all the commotion a friend had noticed her chain which was still around her neck had come undone and the pendant had fallen off into the grass below.

Florida grass is very thick and they were unable to locate the diamond pendant.  To make the search even more difficult, there is very little gold on the pendant, so not just any metal detector would be able to locate it.  That’s when we received the call to see if we had the proper metal detecting equipment that would be able detect such a small gold item.

After discussing the situation, my wife and I felt confident we would be able to find the pendant and we made arrangements to stop by on our way home from a weekend getaway—which happened to fall on December 25th.

In less than 10 minutes of searching and much to her surprise, the pendant was found.

It makes us truly happy to see the amazement and skepticism disappear when a once lost item can be found and returned back to the owner!

 

 

Wedding ring found Williamsburg, Michigan lost throwing hay to the horses

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

This adventure started with a call from Tim saying he lost his Wedding ring after throwing hay over a fence to the horses. He said he has been married 27 years and would very much like to get the ring back. Tim and his wife had been looking for the ring for 4 days with a $50.00 metal detector they just purchased to try to find the ring. I told Tim I’m not trying to be rude or hurt your feeling but you are wasting your time with that approach. He told me that was exactly what he wanted me to say and when did I want to come to look for the ring. We still had a couple hours of daylight so I told him I could be on the road in fifteen minutes. I was thinking in my head “Horse + Hay = BRING THE TALL BOOTS” then explained some of the basic metal detector operation and why you needed a better detector and someone who knows how to use it. I can do two things tell you where the ring is not at or find the ring.

Fifteen minutes later I was loaded and headed to Tim’s house. When I got to the house Tim showed me the area he was getting the hay from and the three different spots he threw the hay over the fence. He has three horses he was feeding for the night. He did not realize the ring was missing till he was in the house getting ready to go to the neighbor’s house Saturday night. To myself, I’m thinking we don’t have an exact location it was lost but no big deal the area is pretty small. So I started the search and search I did. I searched the hay storage area twice the path he walked on twice and the area on both sides of the fence twice. So after about 2 hours in I was scratching my head on what to do next. I made a decision on grid searching the complete corral area then calling it a night. I had already told Tim I would return Saturday if I did not find the ring tonight. I switched the coil on my CTX3030 to the big 17-inch coil to cover the area faster. I was on my second pass and got a great sounding target but it was 4 inches down. Was thinking to myself the ring cannot be 4 inches down the ground already it is starting to freeze. Either way that sound needed to be investigated further. I ran up to get my raptor digging tool out of my truck, so, I could dig a big piece of the soil out, not do any damage just in case it was the ring. I had the ball of soil in my hand broke it apart and the ring appeared. I almost fell over thinking that is a big chunk of gold I was not expecting. I had only asked Tim what the ring was made of and if it is a small band or a wider one. Well, I cleaned the dirt off stuck the ring on my finger over my glove held my hand up in victory. Tim came out of his truck to see what I was doing, so, I yelled I have the ring. He ran over grabbed the ring off my finger and gave me a big hug. At that time his wife Deanna just got home and he gave her the news. She asked me where I found the ring then gave me a hug thanking me. The ring was out in the corral about 30 from the fence. Tim and I talked for a minute on how the ring could have gotten that far out. I think it got stuck on one of the horse’s hooves and got carried it out that far and he agreed that something like that happened.

I had a great time with Tim and his Wife Deanna they are both great people to talk to. As I was packing up to leave Tim mentioned he was amazed his wife said there are people that will come and look for your ring. He did an internet search and one of my blog posts came up first. He called me and got his ring back the same night. I told him my stuff is always ready. I can be loaded and on the road in 15 minutes if needed. I went home cleaned the horse droppings off my coils put the battery on the charger ready for the next adventure.

 

 

 

The Stuff Of Legends! Gold Wedding Ring Found @ Cottesloe Beach, Perth, Western Australia

from Perth (Australia)
Contact: 0469880955.

The Stuff of Legends – Cottesloe Beach, April 2, 2018.

Last week, I flew to Perth to visit my brother Sean who I hadn’t seen in ten years.  It was going to be an epic catch up and I was hoping I would get the chance to see him in action on a ring find – a new talent he had developed since we last saw each other.  I was fascinated with the whole process, and eager to share in what I was convinced would be a wicked feel good factor, reuniting someone with their lost ring.

On our last afternoon, we were chilling out at home before heading to the airport, when Sean took a call from a distressed woman who had just lost her wedding band running out of the surf at Cottesloe beach. It had simply slipped off as she ran up the beach, and was flung into the sand –  somewhere… Lucky for her the Cottesloe lifeguards told her she could find Sean’s contact details on The Ring Finders website – a glimmer of hope in an otherwise hopeless situation.

Sean went from woah to go in an instant, and we were on the road bound for Cottesloe – the importance of getting on to a search quickly was not lost on me – so many factors that could impact your chances of ever finding your lost jewellery – the weather, the sea conditions, whether

Sean and Angie discussing the search area.

you can accurately pinpoint an area in which it was lost, and of course the risk of someone else finding it, or worse, the evening  sand sieve machine chewing it up and spitting it into the unknown…

We arrived and met Angie above the beach. She took us down to where she thought she had lost her ring.  In an excellent move that would prove pivotal to the outcome, she and her friends had placed coffee cups in the sand to mark the points between which she thought the ring had been lost. Sean then quizzed Angie on the circumstances surrounding her loss, and clarified details before commencing his search.

Angie, her friends and I watched as Sean methodically covered the area.  His technique was a fascinating ‘shuffle’ that was systematic and almost dance-like.  I was surprised at the speed he was moving, as I thought it would be much slower.  Every minute or so, Sean would pause, hovering his detector back and forth, testing for the right signal and honing in on a target.  Sometimes he would move on, but other times, he would drop to his knees and used a pinpointer that beeped wildly as he felt round the spot.  Our hearts would leap to our throats every time  – and they would sink again as he retrieved a piece of lead, a coin, or some other debris left behind on the beach.

As he approached the second and last coffee cup at the far end of the area Angie had indicated, we began to resign ourselves to the possibility that the ring was lost for good.  Angie had been married 22 years, and this would be devastating – sure a gold band can be replaced, but not the fact that for 22 years it had been on her finger and with her every step.  A new one just wouldn’t be the same.

Angie’s precious… rescued!

about 10 minutes into the search, Sean once again dropped to his knees in the sand as he followed a target. A moment later, he lifted his hand in the air and exclaimed “yeaaaaah – woohoo”. Angie and her friends were so excited, squealing with delight as

Thanks to life gaurds giving Angie my no..

Angie rushed over to Sean and threw her arms around him.  “Oh My God, What a Legend!!!  Thank you so much!!” she exclaimed over and over. 

There it was, the feel good factor.  This is why Sean does this, right there, that moment.

After thanking the lifeguards for connecting them, Sean and Angie took a few pictures before we headed to the pub across the road for a celebratory drink before I departed for the airport on a high.  What a way to round off an awesome week!

LOST ENGAGEMENT RING IN BREAUX BRIDGE, LA. – FOUND

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

After Brennon and Alyssa rode their 4 wheeler along the muddy trails, they decided to call it a day. They parked at the area used to wash off the four wheelers and themselves. While washing her hands with a hose, Alyssa felt her engagement ring slip off her finger. They and other riders hunted for it from 8 PM till midnight with no success. The next morning they returned with a newly purchased metal detector to continue the hunt. After finding only foil, pennies and pop tops, Brennon looked at a YouTube video for hunting hints. He saw a “The Ring Finders” decal on a car in the video and went to our website. We got the call from Brennon on Sunday morning. Carrie and I were able to load our equipment and be on site in 1 ½ hours. The hunt area was relatively small but had quite a lot of trash. It was hard bottom with dead matted grass covered by 2 to 4 inches of mud. After 20 minutes of getting everything, including us, covered in mud, Carrie found the ring, tangled in the grass, under the mud. After some happy tears and pictures (and washing off mud from us and our equipment) we were heading home feeling great after reuniting Alyssa with her beautiful ring.

Thank you for your generous reward. Best wishes for a long and happy life together.

 

Lost Ring on Volleyball Court,Plainsboro New Jersey. Recovered by NJ Lost Ring Finder!

from South Jersey (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-856-296-9258

I received a call from a guy asking for my help finding his gold ring he had lost while playing volleyball with friends a few days ago. I was able to meet with him a couple hours later at the park and he showed me the court he had been playing on. He had been on both sides of the net so I began my grid pattern search on one with my White’s V3i and 6 x 10″ coil which is perfect for these types of hunts. Having no luck on the first side I moved onto the other and about half way through I got a nice signal in the gold range. I scooped up some sand and there was his ring! He was watching with his family and when I held it up stating I found it they were very happy and grateful for my help thanking me and saying how much the ring had meant to him. Another great recovery!       Recovery # 119
