Lisa and her friends had taken their you kids to Balboa Island for a few hours at the beach. There are several small beaches on the inter bay where the water is free of waves and it is not windy.

The children were getting tired after a few hours, so they prepared to return home. That’s when Lisa realized her platinum and diamond wedding ring was missing from her finger. It had to be in the dry sand because she had not been in the water. Everyone searched for the ring with no success. 

It was getting frustrating with the kids getting tired and hungry. Lisa called her husband, Ryan. He was at work where he couldn’t leave so he went online where he found my contact information. I was in my car with  my detectors when he called. It was a coincidence that I was less than a mile from where Lisa was waiting for help to find her precious wedding ring.

We met and it was a matter of a few minutes till my metal detector was able to locate her ring. I have a lot of respect for mothers of young children. It was a pleasure to help Lisa find her ring and get on her way to get the kids home for their lunch and afternoon nap.

Lisa was a little camera shy so I got to pose for photo with the ring for the book of smiles.

Stephanie is from Utah, visiting family here in Laguna Beach, CA. They spent the day at 1000 Steps Beach. Where she had placed her Rose Gold Engagment Ring in her backpack. After leaving the beach returning home she could not find the ring. They returned to the beach that evening to search for the ring with no success. Making it more difficult she was not sure that the ring had been pulled out of the backpack.

 I received a call from Stephanie late that evening just before the beach closed. This beach is gated and closed from 10pm till 6am which made me put off the search till the next morning. She would not be able to meet me at the location because she would be driving back to Utah that day. We spent a few minutes on the phone where Stephanie gave me simple directions to the place they had been that day. 

I was on the beach early the next morning. After the first hour it was not looking like the ring could be found. Before giving up I was able to talk to Stephanie’s brother on my cellphone. He clarified the location and it only took another 15 minutes till I got the gold tone in my earphones. There in my sand scoop was a beautiful diamond engagement ring.

Texted a photo of the ring to Stephanie who was on the road near Las Vegas, NV. It’s awesome that we have the internet and cellphones that make a difference when it comes to finding sentimental items like wedding rings, etc. successful. Her brother and sister in law met me about noon to get the ring. Which they were able to take to Stephanie the next week when they had scheduled a vacation to Utah. 

It has happened several times over the past several years where rings get pulled out of beach bags or backpacks and end up lost in the sand. We had to try this search even though she didn’t see the ring fall into the sand. I knew we had a chance that the ring was lost in that location. This time it was a successful find.

Cindy had been on line trying to purchase a inexpensive metal detector when she found my contact information on TheRingFinders.com. She had lost a gold bracelet that she has worn daily for fourteen years. Cindy believed it  came off while doing yard work or possibly in her house.

I told her about how metal detectors work and explained that we could eliminate the yard area using a metal detector. She would then able to concentrate her efforts on searching inside her home.

We made arrangements to meet that afternoon. I had thoughts that a gold bracelet should have been an easy to find in a grass lawn without a metal detector. I would understand what the conditions were when I got to the site. 

Cindy met me to show me two small grass lawns and some grass cuttings she saved. She suspected that her bracelet could have been pulled off where she pulled weeds near the rose bushes. I had to set up my detector using a higher frequency because there was electrical interference in the area.

Other than a couple pieces of tinfoil, the front lawn and rose garden didn’t produce the lost bracelet. We moved to the grass cuttings that Cindy had spread out on a tarp on the last small lawn. I got a strong gold signal but it seemed very small. It turned out to be a one inch piece of Cindy’s gold rope chain type bracelet. I had been hit with the lawn mower.

We went through a whole trash barrel full of grass clippings looking for the other six inches of the bracelet without success. Then I located another small (3/8”) piece of the gold chain in the lawn. Now I had an area to concentrate the search. The XP Deus with the high frequency coil located three of the smallest pieces. Then I found the other two pieces in the grass up next to a wall using a pinpointer.

It was a little disappointing that the bracelet had been damaged. Cindy was just happy to know that her cherished bracelet had been found. She plans to have it made into a pair of earrings.

Survival Shelter Located in Backyard .. Los Angeles, CA. .. Found with Magnetic Metal Locator

I received a request from Francisco asking me to help him locate a metal entry door to a survival shelter that was 3 to 4 ft. below the surface in his backyard. This was a shelter that was existing on his property when he purchased it. Construction of the shelter was started back in the 1980’s and was never received a final inspection from the city. The previous owners had to seal off the entry to be able to sell the property. 

Fernando had a hand drawn sketch that showed it as a cement room 9’x 9’ x 7’ approximately 4ft. below the surface. Also included dimensions from a backyard wall. It did not show where the entry door was.

I had recently purchased a magnetic metal detector unit that construction and surveyor companies use to locate property markers and buried ferrous metal manhole covers, etc. It works very well for metallic property marker stakes. These machines also can detect large ferrous metals at depths to 6 ft. plus? 

I agreed to help Fernando try to find this entry door but told him I had little experience using this detector to find deep objects. It was going to be definitely better that renting a metal detector at a tool rental company.

We met at his home the next Sunday on his day off from his regular job. We did some general measurements to start with. I tool my magnetic locator and received a large  3-1/2 ft. square area  signal at one end of the location. I took a four foot metal probe ( used for bottle digging ) which showed it was only 12” down. But next to that cement cap with rebar, my probe went three and a half feet down and hit solid cement ( the top of the shelter ).

The entry was actually a 3 ft. cylinder that gave access to the top of the buried shelter. I didn’t stay to see the unearthing. Fernando sent me photos, explaining the project would probably be expensive to clean out the room and get it sanitized. He will eventually restore the shelter which was always a mystery to him as he always knew it was there and never had any idea of what it actually looked like. 

It was awesome to have the chance to use a new tool to help someone find a survival shelter…. I may someday have to use this magnetic metal locator to find a buried treasure in somebody’s back yard. I have had requests to do these searches several other times. I just haven’t had any successful recoveries because the treasures were not there..

I have included a few photos that might explain more than my attempt to describe my search with words.

Today you made what seemed to me like the impossible happen!

Dear John,
Today you made what seemed to me like the impossible happen. The little diamond moon charm that meant so much to me and my sister and was no bigger than my pinkie fingernail is in my hand.
When my sister’s necklace broke and the charm fell into the sand yesterday, we hunted for over an hour with no luck. Then a wonderful 8-year-old girl we didn’t know saw us looking and offered her help. She and her brother and father used their metal detector and sieve for at least another hour before we all decided that we had to let it go.
But I don’t let things go that easily, so when I got home, I went online and found your website. When I called, you were calm and confident. you said that if the charm was there, we would find it.
The phrase “needle in a haystack” kept running through my mind on my way to meet you. The beach is so big and the sand can bury something that small so easily, never to be seen again.
But once I was able to show you the area where the charm had fallen, it was only a matter of minutes before you turned up the spot of sand where the little charm lay, still partially buried, but sparkling in the sun. What a happy moment! I will never forget it.
Your calm, confident patience were just what was needed for the job, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making what seemed like the impossible happen.

Ring found at Ocean Beach

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Richard called me to say that he accidentally lost his wife Simone’s gold ring in the sand at Ocean Beach,  She had given him the ring so that she wouldn’t go into the ocean with it and lose it! Richard had it on his pinky when the unthinkable happened and it ended up in the dry sand. Never fear, The Ring Finders are here! I grabbed my gear, asked the wife to come along in case there wasn’t any parking, and headed out the door. Turns out there was plenty of parking, so, my wife and I went over and met Richard and Simone. We got the story and the approximate search area where I went to work. Not 30 seconds later, I get a nice solid 9 on my Equinox 800. Poked my TRX pin pointer into the sand and chased a signal for a few seconds until I cornered it and pulled a pretty little gold ring back into the sunlight. A relieved Richard and a happy Simone were now able to enjoy the rest of the day. A pleasure to meet you and thank you for the reward.

LOST WEDDING RING AT ISLAND BEACH STATE PARK RECOVERED BY MATT ST.GERMAIN AKA JERSEY SHORE LOST RING FINDER

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

Last night around 12am while on my way out to a beach with my friend Dennis, I received a message from Fellow Ring Finder Edward Cropski aka N.J. Lost Ring Finder with contact information for Raj, Who also messaged me minutes later. He was at Island Beach State Park earlier that day with his family. While he was wiping the sand off a boogie board his wedding ring flew off his finger. After searching by hand for a few hours he decided to do a web search where he found the Ringfinders website. I went home and slept for a few hours then met him at the beach at 7:30am. During the summer months detecting is not allowed there on the weekends and you also need a permit (Which i have). He was granted permission for me to come and do a search. He and his wife showed me where they were the day before. Within 15 minutes i was able to recover his ring!. Another wonderful ending! #Minelabfind

…. Max and Paula had driven to Newport Beach and found a place to walk on the beach on the Balboa Penesula. After walking down the beach Max decided to take a quick swim in the ocean. He took off his sunglasses and platinum wedding ring putting them in his baseball cap then set the hat on the sand. 

After returning to dry off he picked up his hat and the ring went directly into the sand. He knew right away what had happened but after an hour of searching with his hands he went to the internet for help. He contacted me through TheRingFinders website. I was two miles away with my equipment and was able to meet Max and Paula on the beach right away.

I started up my metal detector, took a couple practice swings then started a short 10 ft. square search grid. Two pieces of metal trash followed by a positive non ferrous metal reading. It had to be Max’s platinum ring. I was so positive that I let Max reach down to retrieve the ring. It still took him about four grabs with his fingers to get it but he was overjoyed to have his ring that he has worn everyday for more than twenty years. 

It was a special search and I was happy to be available to get to their location in a timely matter. Thanks to internet, cellphones and TheRingFinders.com.

Wedding ring lost while body surfing in Huntington Beach

from Sunset Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-714-944-0555

I made contact with Amy after I heard that her husband John had lost his ring while body surfing. I met them at the beach around 8pm so John could show me the location. Unfortunately the tide was at it’s high for the day and I could not find it. I told them I would search again when the tide is lower. The next day during the afternoon low tide I was able to locate the ring with my brand new metal detector in about 15 minutes. It was exactly in the area where John said he lost it.

I called Amy with the good news and she came to the beach to pick up the ring. Amy said she was going to wait until John got home to surprise him with the ring.

If you ever need help finding your ring, please don’t post the location of the loss.

from North Wildwood (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-215-850-0188

I received a call from Abe after he lost his 14k white gold wedding band with diamonds on the first day of vacation in Ocean City NJ.  I met Abe at the beach and he said that the ring was in his pocket with his wallet.  When he went to meet the ice cream man he pulled out his wallet while walking and must have dropped the ring in the sand somewhere between where they were sitting and the ice cream man. Several people had been looking for the ring but there search was unsuccessful.  The search area was large and the ring was about 150 feet from where they were sitting. After a through grid and search of the area the ring came out of the sand! Abe came and gave me a huge hug and thanked me! Abe said the ring is very sentimental and was very happy that the ring was found!
