My wife showed me a Facebook post from Keri. She had lost her Platinum wedding ring while at a local campground beach when throwing a football. Her post told the location of the lost ring. I told her I could help, but she needed to take the post down asap. I informed her someone would go in and get the ring and keep it. She took the post down and I went to work.

This call should have taken me 20 minutes to complete but ended up taking 2 1/2 weeks. The beach she was at metal detectors are not allowed. I’m not going to go into all the details here. I’ll just say due to a miscommunication between the park staff and Keri the permit took 2 1/2 weeks to get. Once I got the permit, I read the whole thing to make sure I followed all the rules on the permit.  One of the rules was, I could not be in the swim area when the the area is open for the day. So, I waited till 10:00 pm and went to hopefully get the ring. 2 1/2 weeks is a long time for a ring to sit at a public beach. I know people have snuck into this area at night to detect it, also people camping metal detect the area not knowing they are not allowed to detect the area. One of the other rules is, I could not take any compensation for helping Keri. I left work early twice costing me 4 hours of pay and 5 trips driving to the park trying to get the permit. One other rule was anything I found that was not Keri’s ring had to be turned over to the Ranger station.

In talking to Keri after she lost the ring her daughter paced off steps from a buoy in the swimming area. 34 paces deeper into the lake and 21 paces toward the middle of the swimming area. When backup Dave and I got into the swimming area I paced off to the location and set up marker. We were in the water less than 20 minutes and had the ring. I checked out with the Rangers, turned in the pendant we found and emailed Keri I got the ring. We met up at 11:00 pm and I gave her the ring back. I accepted no compensation for this 2 1/2 week ordeal. I did not ask for a picture of Keri because all issues completing this call.

Received an email from Peter that he lost his Wedding ring earlier in the day. He was washing his dog out on the dock. His hands were lathered up with soap and the ring slipped off hit the dock then fell into the water. He looked with goggles and could not find the ring. The search area was pretty small but I was hampered with a lot of other signals in the water. I made a decision to just dig it all and clear the area. One of the trashiest signals brought the ring up. In the scoop with the ring was corroded change a stainless bolt and washer. Total search time was about 30 Minutes. 

Lost wedding ring found with a metal detector at Stearns Park beach in Ludington, Michigan

I received a call from a fellow Ringfinder Greg Larabel about a lost ring in Ludington, Mi. The closest Ringfinder Chuck Raison and himself had other commitments could I take this call. He gave me the phone number for Scott. I called Scott and got the story and set to meet Scott at the location today at 3:00 pm. Scott said he was throwing a football with his son in water about 5 feet deep with his son and saw his 14 k White gold ring go flying off. They searched the area with goggles and had no luck.  I met up with Scott at 3:00 pm got the story again and started the search. Scott walked me out to the area he was in. I had him place two of my snow plow markers as reference points. He mentioned that the wavers were larger yesterday than they were today. I explained to him that will raise the water in the spot he was in, so I might need to search closer to shore. The waves were big today also, I was on my tippy toes and jumping up so the waves did not go over my head. I started at the markers Scott set and worked close to shore. After about 40 minutes I got the only signal of the day and had Scott’s ring. I called Scott and his son over that I had a ring. Showed it to Scott and he verified it was his ring. He said he has no idea how I could find the ring in such a large area. The ring was about 15 feet closer to shore right in line with the marker Scott set.  He said to his wife last night the ring is gone forever and will never be found.  She said let me google it and found The Ring Finders. Scott has a very nice family, I enjoyed talking to him and his wife after finding the ring. Now they can get back to enjoying whats left of the family vacation.

Lost Diamond Ring in Chilliwack BC, found in snow.

Contact: 1-778-838-3463

Call Chris Turner ASAP and find your ring!!! 1-778-838-3463 www.TheRingFinders.com

I received a text message late last night saying that a lady had lost her diamond ring in the snow and was wondering if I could help her find it. I text her back right away and asked if she could call me, the next morning at 8 AM I got the call. We talked about the search and much like my last 4 unsuccessful searches she didn’t know when the ring came off her finger. The other thing was that she was wearing gloves. I asked if she remembered taking the gloves off and she remembered two places the gloves came off. I asked where she lived and it was far…1 1/2 hour drive each way. We arrange a meeting for 10:30 am and the roads were good.

When I got there I asked the young lady where she took her glasses off and we decided to search the closest to her home where her son had to go to the washroom. Her and her husband had taken a tiger torch and melted the snow around that area…It only took a few minutes before I got a great signal, I move the snow and saw a beautiful diamond ring! I love my job, I love helping people find what they thought was lost forever. I was just as happy as she was when I saw that ring, if I hadn’t found it, it would’ve been a very long sad drive home.

Mans Platinum wedding ring lost in North Spokane WA, Found!!!!

from Spokane (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-509-263-8995

This morning I woke up with a lost ring call from a man named Sebastian. His story was short and sweet. Sebastian was walking with his wife along a path behind his apartment. With the snow falling he couldn’t resist a small snowball toss at his wife. Promptly the wedding ring he wore, also couldn’t resist flying off his cold finger. The couple looked and dug through the snow with no success. So after gathering my equipment I made my way over to Sebastian’s apartment. We spoke briefly about the lost ring and then I began swinging my way down the freshly plowed walkway. My thoughts were the ring had been pitched to the side of the path. However after two minutes of walking, Sebastian said “swing over the concrete path”. There was snow and ice covering the path enough to conceal the ring. My coil was about a foot from the boots of Sebastian when I got a signal. My pin pointer confirmed that it was close to the surface and my fingernail revealed the shiny rim of his platinum wedding ring. I think this search broke the record for my fastest recovery. A very good start to the New Year I’d say, the snow is always good at loosening rings.

Lost ring found in the snow in Traverse City, Mi

I got a call from Heather on a lost ring lost in the snow at a local law office. Heather was asking if I could help before a big snowstorm hits in a couple hours. Ended up driving to the law office to do the search. I asked the usual questions. What happened and what is the ring made of. She was closing the door on the car in cold weather and the ring went flying. Second question is what is the ring made of. Her reply was silver with 2 diamonds and a pearl.

She took me out to the search area in the parking lot. She had her car parked over the area so nobody would park in that area. The search area was about 10 feet by 10 feet. I scanned the area with the CTX3030 and got no silver signals. I had one nice gold signal, so, I went back to it and found the ring. I went inside to give her the ring and said we have one small problem. Your ring is not silver is 10k white gold. The whole office cheered that I had found the ring before the storm. I tried to get a picture of her with the ring  but she refused. After some hard negotiating at the law office, I got a picture of her hand holding the ring.

 

Lost Gold Wedding Band South Surrey…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

Married just 26 hours…Jordan lost his wedding band! Not long after our first snow fall in Feb. I got an email from the young man asking if I had time to help him find his lost ring in the snow.

I called him right away and heard his story about his father and grandfather who had search the day after with a tiger torch and a rented metal detector.

His parents spent a few hours with no luck searching on the side of the road where he had parked and where he had lost his wedding band. I knew it would be important to go right away and search for it

before the ring got cough in a truck tire and driven away or pushed up the road by the snow plow.

Jordan was at work and was comfortable with telling me the location over the phone as he wouldn’t be able to be there. He sent me the address and photos of the area where they had melted the snow and detected.

When I got there I could see the area that was searched and I took out my detector and started searching and my second signal bang! Found it…Less then 2 minutes by the side of the road. People wonder why they can’t

find the ring with a rented detector, its because of experience and I have over 40 years of that…That being said it was a good effort by his parents!

Lost Gold Wedding Band in Snow/Vancouver,BC…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

While sledding at a Vancouver park with his daughter, Chris lost his white gold wedding band. When I met Chris he was very certain that it was lost at the park and he even had a video of him sledding, at one point he was shaking his hands in the video and he felt that was the moment the ring must have come off. Watching the video, I too felt the same way as Chris did as he said the ring was very loose, shaking your hands like that would make the ring come off for sure.

After Chris showed me the area, he went to work, I started my search at the top of the hill. I worked my way grid searching north/south and after 30 minutes I found his 19k white gold wedding band. I feel just as happy as the person I find it for does…Very Happy!

Ring Found In Burlington VT

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

I got a call last night from a guy who had lost his wedding band the day before Christmas. He was so shook up, he said it felt like his arm was missing. Luckily, he was on break from college and I had today off, so I went early to help him find it.

He had been shoveling snow at his house and at his mother-in-law’s house, and had also been taking out the trash and doing dishes (good husband!). He really wasn’t sure which house he had lost it at. He searched so hard for it, even rented a metal detector, looked through all the trash and took the sink drain apart. No luck. They got married about a year and a half ago, and have been sweethearts since middle school. They had gotten the ring from a goldsmith in Maine who had custom made it for them. I told him we should have a good chance of finding it even if we have to do a lot of shoveling.

We started at his mother-in-law’s house. It was about zero, but not windy yet. There was no ring presenting itself here. I figured we should go search at his house first, before starting to shovel through the snowbanks here. There were lots of signals at his house, some were in 2 inches of solid ice. He boiled some water and we poured it onto a couple spots that sounded possible. No luck. He went inside to boil some more water, and I moved out behind the house to try there. I thought that there might be a chance the ring went flying when he shook snow off his gloves. My machine gave out that awesome ring signal, I reached in with the pinpointer and about 6 inches down in the snow, there it was, in perfect condition!

When he came back out I said “you can use that water for some tea, I found it!” He was so relieved and happy. He called his wife, and she and her mother came over to celebrate. We had a nice visit trading stories.
