Wedding and Engagement Ring Lost in the Surf – FOUND and Returned North Myrtle Beach SC

from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-843-655-5889

I got a call from Matt at 7 this morning asking if I could help try and find his wife (Denise’s) wedding and engagement ring set she lost yesterday afternoon in waist deep water.

I got there about an hour later and Matt showed me the area and gave me a great description of where Denise was at when the ring came off. I started my grid and after 30 minutes I reevaluated where I was searching in comparison with the time and tide when she lost it. I moved up the beach, started a new grid and after another 30 minutes got a great signal. Bingo!!! Met Matt and Denise inside the hotel they were staying at because a heavy storm with lightening had come up and it wasn’t a good idea to be standing on the beach with metal in my hands.

Denise’s expression says it all and she stated “I thought I’d never see it again.” There is absolutely nothing better than finding someone’s special treasure that they thought was gone forever.

Matt and Denise thank you for trusting me to find your treasure and for the very generous reward. Enjoy the rest of your vacation with piece of mind.

Gold Cross Lost at Santa Monica Beach, CA…Found.

I received a call the evening the day before Easter from a gentleman asking if I would be able to help find a Cross and a ring lost at the beach, for his friend Zara. I told him I would leave right away to meet them.

I met Zara and her friend, and asked them about the loss. They showed me the area they believed the cross was lost, and where they thought the ring was lost. I started my search in the general area with no results. I then widened the search area, asking all the time about where they might have been regarding the area. After about an hour Zara was getting cold, and feeling a bit sick, so she decided to go back to the car. I continued my search, and about 30 feet from where she thought she lost the cross, I got a good signal. I put in my scoop, started shaking it and realized there was something big bouncing around inside. I looked in and saw a very large gold cross, and realized I had found what she had lost. Her friend was waiting nearby, so I walked over to show him that I had just found a pull tab which I put on the little wall, and then immediately put down the cross, which created an intensity of excitement. They went to show Zara, who came back very happy. I continued to look for the ring ever expanding my search area, going way outside the box she had shown me with no results. I could not figure it out until I asked how the ring was made. That was when she told me that it was not a concentric circle ( a very hard ring to find), but wrapped snake like. I went back to the car and got another detector, and also a different coil for the one I was using hoping to get an advantage on the ring. I searched for another hour and a half, with no luck. I decided to come back today with another detector (a PI), to see if I would be able to find the ring, and dug every piece of metal in that area. I spent another 3 hours, found everything but the ring.  It might be that it got lost somewhere other than the spot that I was shown, or it might have been out of the range of my detectors.

I was happy to have made one of the recoveries though, and was able to see the happiness on Zara’s face. For me it was a partial victory, but still some joy to be had.

If you lose your ring or other metal item of value, call as soon as possible. I will work hard to help you find what you thought might never be found again. I search,  Beverly Hills, Hermosa Beach, Huntington Beach, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Malibu, Manhattan Beach, Newport Beach, Rancho Palos Verdes, Redondo Beach, Santa Monica, Seal Beach, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, Torrance, Venice Beach, and all parks, yards, gardens, and ponds (to 5 foot depths) in all of Orange County, all of Los Angeles County, and Ventura County.

Another Successful Ring Recovery at Sanibel Island, Florida

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

On Monday, January 19, 2015, I received a call from Thomas and Leslie Miller requesting my help to locate Leslie’image images missing diamond and platinum wedding band.

The Miller family had been enjoying the day at Sanibel Island Lighthouse and Beach until Leslie discovered her precious ring was missing.  Leslie had removed the wedding set from her hand and safely stowed the rings and her camera phone in a pocket to apply sunscreen to her son.  As time passed, Leslie forgot about the rings in her pocket and after reaching into her pocket several times to get her phone to snap photos, she realized her band was missing somewhere in the loose beach sand.

I made arrangements to meet them later in the evening.  Equipped with my metal detecting gear and a headlamp, I was ready for the late evening search.  Within the first half hour of searching, the beautiful ring was found and returned to Leslie’s finger where it belongs!

Part of the success of this ring find can be attributed to the couple’s attention to detail / landmarks of the beach area where they presumed the ring was lost.
