I received a call from James, who had lost a hearing aid in his yard when bees attacked him as he was doing yard work. He had rented metal detector and it was not able get signal from his other hearing aid. 

I was only a half hour from his home in Sherman Oaks which is part of the Los Angeles suburbs. We met and he was concerned that the bees may hamper my ability to search the hillside landscape. I was just happy that my high frequency metal detector could get a decent signal from an identical hearing aid.

The hillside was steep and was fairly free of vegetation. It was possible to search about 35 feet from the underground bees (wasps) nest without arousing them. After about a half hour with a few signals from pieces of wire and nails, I got a signal that turned out to be the missing hearing aid. 

I used a XP Deus metal detector with a 74 kHz high frequency coil that has been awesome for finding small gold and platinum stud earrings. It was a fun hunt and pleasure to help James find such an important item that he desperately missed after three days without his hearing aid.

Jenifer had taken her wedding ring off while playing volleyball at Santa Monica Beach, CA. She set it on her cellphone which was on her towel and jacket. Later in the day she moved her belongings over three volleyball courts west. As she and her husband were leaving the beach she realized the ring was missing. They had spent a couple hours with their friends searching with their hands.

Jenifer called me the next morning asking for help. It was a difficult drive because of several accidents on the freeway. She was able to meet me and we went over to the volleyball courts. We started at the first place she had laid her belongings figuring the ring fell in the sand when she had picked up her towel and jacket. No ring there, so I grid search her path to the third volleyball court. It was not looking good and we had only a small area where she had moved her towel and jacket. 

A couple swings with my detector and I got that sweet tone of gold in my earphones. I could see that Jenifer was losing confidence that her ring would be found, so I told her this had to be her ring as I dug it out of the sand. I let her pick it out of the scoop as her face lit up with a big smile. It gets crazy when you are doing a search and you are running out of places to search. 

Jenifer was reunited with her wedding ring and able to get on her way to other commitments she had made for the day..

Keys found in Chula Vista

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Angela called me to help find her lost keys. It was dark, she and her husband were outside his car in the parking lot where they lived. Angela attempted to throw her keys over to top of the car to her husband on the other side. The keys didn’t make it! They hit the top of the car and bounced somewhere. They searched the parking lot, sidewalk, and landscaping the best they could in the dark using a flashlight, but, didn’t have any luck. They searched again the next day, even cleaning out dead leaves and branches from the bushes along the sidewalk. Still no luck. Next in the process was to buy a metal detector and try again. They had “fun” removing everything imaginable from the ground cover and bushes, but, the keys just wouldn’t speak up. Eventually, they heard about The Ring Finders and gave me a call.

I met Angela at the parking lot around noon and got the low down on how the keys were lost. I started by searching all the ground area in and around the bushes and all along the sidewalk. No luck. I ran the coil over the surface of the bushes and even in the overhanging tree branches, but, still nothing. Next, I started at one end and started shaking all the bushes as hard as I dared, hoping to hear the tinkle of keys or to hopefully convince the bushes to let go of them. We made it all the way to the other end without success, but, while walking back toward where we started Angela looked down and spied them right under the corner of one of the bushes. Yes! Don’t know how we missed them at the time we were at that bush, but, hey, they’re now back where they belong, so, that’s what counts. A very happy Angela called her husband with the good news and both gratefully thanked me. A pleasure to meet you Angela and thank you for the reward.

Kim and Alex were visiting Santa Monica beach while on vacation from New Jersey. Alex handed his wedding ring to Kim to hold so he could do a short workout on the athletic rings. Shortly after that she dropped the platinum wedding band in the sand. It disappeared immediately and their attempts to find it were unsuccessful.

Alex had tried to ask some of the local businesses if there was any place to rent a metal detector. Someone told him to google search TheRingFinders.com .  I was in my car on the freeway when I got the call from Alex. After hearing what had happened, I asked if they could stay at the location and assured him that we could find it if they could stay there. I was able to get there 45 minutes later and found a parking less than a block away. ( that’s a miracle).

The rest of the story was simple. Timing and the fact they could stay at the location made it easy to find the ring. It took me longer to turn on and setup my detector than it did to actually find the ring. Losing a ring in the sand can be frustrating if you don’t have the right tool to find it. Also there are search areas can be littered with other metal trash. I have done searches where a dozen  people have spent hours searching with sifting tools and cheap detectors and couldn’t find the lost ring. I’m sure there are many times when people walk away thinking it was lost forever. They don’t know that TheRingFinders is a world wide directory of metal detector specialists with experience finding and returning sentimental keepsakes.

Alex told me the wedding ring was special to him because  it was made by his father who is a jeweler and he has worn it daily since his marriage.

I received a voicemail from Kaci. She had stated her wedding ring flew off her hand tossing candy from her car in her driveway while holding her young child. She said she had lost it on 10-30-18. The next day is when she called me. I said I can come right after work so I came home grabbed my gear and headed her way a 20 minute drive. I searched for awhile with no luck. I searched the yard three times before she headed to work. I said it’s not in the yard. She had some bushes right by the car and porch so I got on my knees and found a pull tab at the base of the bushes. Just as her husband was home he headed for the porch I heard the sweet sound from my pinpointer… I said to him does her ring look like this he said no way I said yup I got it. Now the fun began I said we have to go surprise her. I gathered a bunch of small metal from my truck and went to see KACI. We got there and I told her it’s not in your yard or your car. I showed her all the stuff I found in her yard with the ring hidden beneath the junk. She started moving stuff around in my hand and saw her ring underneath.. Her reaction was priceless.. Thank for getting ahold of me KACI..

Ryan and Anna had been married one day when Anna accidentally dropped Ryan’s gold wedding band in the sand. Ryan has given Anna his ring for safekeeping while he went swimming in the ocean at Laguna Beach, CA.

After futile attempts to find the ring by several people it was looking like the ring may be lost forever. I’m sure Anna felt guilty for losing the ring. Anna called her father, David for ideas of how to find the ring. David was able to search on line coming up with my contact information on TheRingFinders.com website.

I was in my car, on my way to metal detect on another beach. David told me what beach the his daughter and new son in-law were. He was also on his way to help. 

We met a half hour later at Cress St. Beach. Walking down to the beach took longer than the time it took to find the ring. It’s nice to get these type searches now and then. Timing was important to make this a successful search. 

These fast searches don’t happen often. I have had several searches lately that have taken more than 4 or 5 hours. When the ring is not there it can take many hours to eliminate possible hiding places. 

It was a pleasure to help this  newly wedded couple find this ring,
especially while they are still celebrating their marriage. It was also nice to meet David, who was proud to have a part of finding someone with a metal detector.

Bill gave his wife, Taylor his white gold wedding ring to hold while he went swimming in the bay at Newport Beach, CA.  Sometime during the next couple hours she had lost the ring, but they didn’t realize it was lost until they returned home. This was exactly what happened about six weeks ago, when I was able to find the same ring in the surf at a San Clemente, CA.

This time Bill knew to call me that night as soon as could. We set up a time when he could get away from his job at lunch break the next day. The area they had been that day was approximately 40 feet square. Then there was the walk to the car, something like 100 yards across the sand.

Bill had to return to work which didn’t bother me. I had what information l needed and I could take my time to do a thorough grid search. 

The beach was very clean without bothersome bottle caps and pull tabs. I was nearing the end of the main search location and it looked like my next grid would be the long walk to the parking lot. Then the sweet tone of a gold ring in my headphones. Boom! a quick dig and I had Bills wedding ring in my scoop.

Just as I was getting ready to send Bill the good news I received a text from him ..  “ Any luck? If not please forget about it.” ..  I texted Bill a photo of the ring and he called right away. It was nice to hear the joy in his voice. I was able to hold his ring for more than a week, until he was could pick it up. It’s always great to see the smile and the eyes light up when you hand the ring back to the person that thought it was lost forever.

Laura had lost her wedding ring in her front yard. After returning from her OB doctor where he recommended she not wear her ring as her fingers were beginning to swell. Laura temporally put her wedding ring on her smaller finger.

Later that day she had been standing on her front porch shaking a blanket when the ring went flying off her finger. She was several months pregnant which made it difficult to search for the ring. Then she remembered seeing recommendations for TheRingFinders on line from people on her local community forum.

I was able to meet Laura at her home on Mission Viejo shortly after her call. Even though it was a small search area, it took about 45 minutes to locate the small wedding ring. I typically do a thorough scan with my detector. The I visually search the sidewalk and porch area. Lastly, I get out the hand held pinpointer detector to get the areas underneath plants and up next to metal objects.

The ring was found visually a couple inches from a metal post that masked any signal of the ring. If you rent a metal detector they don’t tell you about electrical interference, other metal trash and most the time rental people don’t know how to use the detector. Also, the quality of the detectors leave a lot to be desired. 

Laura was ecstatic to get her ring back. It had a long history including having to be cut off her finger several years ago when she with her last pregnancy.

Todd was bodysurfing while on a vacation. As he was coming out of the water he shook his hand and his gold wedding ring went directly into water. It was high tide and he was in about a foot of water. 

Todd gave up hope of finding his ring feeling it was lost forever. He and his wife had taken a walk. He was upset about loosing the ring. As they past a local jewelry store his wife suggested they look for a replacement. They decided to buy a new ring but they didn’t have a size 11. After telling the story about losing the ring in the surf, the person that was helping them gave Todd my contact information.

I met Todd at 7pm as the tide was receding. He put me in the general area. I could not locate the ring and it was not worth risking searching in the rough surf. I decided to wait for the lower tide. Returning three hours later with a Pulse Induction Metal Detector that has the ability to get targets deeper in the soft sand.

After an hour of grid searching the ring had not showed. My next plan was to cross grid swinging very slow. I got the faintest of sound in my earphones. It was more like a break in the threshold. After digging a deep hole in the damp sand, Todd’s gold ring showed up in my sand scoop. It’s difficult to understand how deep this ring was after only 6 hours. We have many miles of beach in Southern California with all types of sand conditions. I have recovered many rings only a few inches deep after several days. Sand conditions can be a problem but there is always a better chance to find a ring that was lost at a higher tide. Finding a ring in a lake or bay can be easier if there isn’t too much metal trash and if it was lost in water less than shoulder deep. 

Todd and his wife were flying home to Idaho the next morning. I was able to meet them to return the ring just before they left for the airport. It’s always nice to see the happiness and smiles when returning a ring that is so sentimental to someone that has worn it daily for more than 20 years.

Raul called asking for my help to find his wife’s platinum/ diamond and blue sapphire ring lost in the dry sand in Laguna Beach, CA. His wife Marisa had been sitting on the board walk with her feet touching the sand. She removed her wedding ring and it slipped from her grip falling out of site.

They spent a lot of time searching in the small area of sand. They panicked when the ring eluded them. They feared that the ring may have dropped between the wooden planks of the boardwalk. If the ring went under the the boardwalk it would not be accessible without major removal of sand.

I set up my metal detector and told them to cross their  fingers hoping that it was not under the boardwalk. It was a quick recovery, actually under Marisa’s foot in the sand. They had done everything right. Marisa had stayed in the location of the loss and Raul had got on line finding my contact information. Total time from when Raul called was less than 45 minutes including 7 miles drive, finding a parking spot on Sunday and a short two block walk.

One small note about this type search is the puzzled look you get when you find a small item so easily right in front of where they had been searching. “ Using The Right Tool For The Right Job “ .. Also knowing how to operate the metal detector. 

It’s always a pleasure to help reunite such sentimental keepsakes with the owner. It’s also hard to put in words the joy of seeing the happiness that people express at the moment the item is found.
