FitBit Watch Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

I happened to go to local beach last night to do a little metal detecting to keep my skills sharp. I was working down the beach when I saw a group of about 8 people down a way, scurrying around the sand with their phones out and lights on. It looked like a desperate search, so I made my way over to them, and asked if I could help. I explained that I was with The Ring Finders, and we help people find things that they lost. They explained the watch had been on a towel, and then they were chased back by the incoming tide, and believed that is when they lost the watch.

I began my search where they thought they had lost the watch, and found a lot of bottle caps and a few coins. I kept up the grid with similar results. Then the young lady who originally pointed out where to start, realized that we needed to move North of our position after she noticed the trash cans they were in front of earlier. I continued my grid in the new area, working my way closer to the water, again finding more bottle caps and a few more coins. I got to where the water had come up over the edge when I got another good signal. This time it was the watch. Well there was a great hug given, and a lot of excitement. It was now about 10:00 PM, and I did not know how long they had been searching before I arrived, but they were very happy now. A great night out indeed!

St. Christopher Pendant Lost at Manhattan Beach, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

As I was traveling to Zuma Beach last Saturday to find a ring, I received a call from Olivia asking if I would be able to help find a pendant she lost while playing volley ball. I asked if she could wait until finished my search for the ring, and if so, I would head directly over to look for the pendant. She happened to be at work, so she was able to wait. When I found the ring, I headed straight to the area she had given me.

When I got there Olivia had thought she would have some time to come over and show me where the loss occurred, but it didn’t work out. We talked over the phone, and she explained where the loss occurred. I was standing there, and made sure I understood everything she told me. I then got to work, and found the pendant within 20 minutes. I could tell it was old, and it must have been given to her by someone special, something she for sure did not want to lose. I waited until she got off of work, when I was able to give it back to her. She was so thankful, and very happy to have it back again. A wonderful day!

Gold Earring Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA…Joyously Found and Returned.

I was getting ready to eat my dinner last night when I received a call from Judith who had lost her earring in the sands of the beach. She had been walking along when she adjusted her hat. When she moved her hat, she heard a click, and reached up to notice one of the earrings her grandmother had given her was missing, it must have hooked in her hair which moved with her hat. She desperately searched for it as did her friends and some of the other beach goers to no avail. She then was given my number, and called for help. I was only 20 to 30 minutes away, so I grabbed my equipment, and was on my way.

When I got to the beach Judith and I found each other, and she led me to the area of the loss. I asked my questions trying to narrow down the search area by deductive reasoning. I began my search as I thought it should be done. My first signal was a hair pin. I then, as I moved in closer to where Judith and her friends had been sitting, received a real good sound in the head phones, and dug with my scoop. As I pulled the scoop out Judith told me her friends were sure the loss took place further out, and not where I was searching. While she was explaining this to me, I was looking at her earring in my scoop. That is when I reached in and held up her earring jokingly stating that the ring I found could not be the one we were looking for. Withing 2 minutes I was able to hand her earring back to her. Right away instant joy flooded her, and everybody around got excited about the recovery. When inquiring further about her grandmother and what this gift meant to Judith, I could see that it was a very emotional recovery indeed. What a wonderful thing to be able to produce this type of joy when something you thought was lost for good is found and returned.

Diamond Stud Earring Lost in Cemetery in Valencia, CA…Found and Returned.

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I received a call from Arvin last night asking if I would be able to help find a lost diamond stud earring in a cemetery. I told him I would help him only after we went to the main office, and received permission to do the search. I did let him know ahead of time, that diamond stud earrings are one of the hardest pieces of jewelry to find, because they are made with such a small amount of metal. We agreed to meet today at about 3:00 PM.

When we met, Arvin’s wife Larraine explained that it was their daughter Lauren who had lost the earring. Lauren’s grandmother had given her those earrings, so there was a very strong sentimental value attached to the missing jewelry. Larraine, Lauren and I went to the office where they explained what had happened, and I said that I would only be there for that particular search and then leave, so the manager gave us the go ahead for the search. When Arvin took us to the area, he and Lauren showed me the boundaries, and explained that Lauren had been holding her baby brother while the family were paying respects to Larraine’s grandparents. While Lauren had her brother, he reached up out of curiosity, grabbed her earring, and pulled it right out of her ear. She reached up, and all she had was the back stuck to her ear. They checked the brother’s hand, no earring. They checked the mat Lauren was sitting on, no earring. They then deducted that it had fallen into the thick grass. The family had searched for the earring for 2 days without success, so Lauren went to the internet, and found me on The Ring Finders site.

I began by testing my equipment on the remaining earring, and was able to get about 1 to 1 1/2 inches on the detector. I then checked my pin pointer, and it had to touch the earring in order to get a response, so I knew I had to pin point well with my detector. I was receiving many signals, many were too strong, but checked them all. I searched the original area I was shown, but did not find it. Then moved a few feet lower, and received a faint signal. I put the pin pointer in the thick grass, and got a response. I kept the pin pointer in the grass as I moved the grass around. I could hear the pin pointer, and was looking at the earring which I could barely see in the dirt below the grass, but there it was. I grabbed it by the shank, brought it up, and held it out for Lauren, she and her father were totally surprised. One of the hardest items to recover, found and returned. Needless to say, we all felt real good at that moment.

Lauren sent the attached testimonial:

On Sunday, April 30, 2017 I lost my diamond stud earring in the grass at Eternal Valley Cemetery. My little brother accidentally took it off my ear and it fell somewhere. We looked for two days but we couldn’t find it. On Monday, May 1, 2017 that night I searched up on google how to find an earring in the grass” and that’s where I found out about this website called, The Ring Finders. I read through the website and it said something about someone being able to find their diamond stud earring, in the grass with the help of whoever is in charge of this website. I looked for more information and then I read a name. Steve. And so I assumed that he was in charge of this website. And I was right. His number was there, so I tried calling him. We arranged a meeting for the next day, May 2, 2017 and that’s on a Wednesday. At 3pm. At first, I was hesitant. Although I’ve read his blogs about him being able to help some people, I was still a little worried. I thought, would he really be able to help us look for my earring? Because I know we’ve looked for two days and we didn’t find it. But I took my chances. I knew that diamond earring had a sentimental value to me, so I just hoped he would be able to help us. And he did! It took him an hour and I almost thought he would never find it, but he did. He found it. We were all so happy. My parents, and especially me. It was really unexpected, but with the help of Steve and his equipments, my earring was found. I can attest to this event, and I am a witness that The Ring Finders is legit.

Sincerely, 

Lauren

Platinum Tacori Wedding Band With Diamonds Ensconced Fully Around the Rim Lost for 3 Days at Santa Monica, CA Beach…Found and Returned to Kirkland, WA.

Tuesday night about 10:00 PM I received an email from Dan regarding the loss of his wife’s ring, wondering if I could help. I asked if he would call me so I could discuss the situation with him. He also told me in the email that the ring had been lost on Sunday, on a highly groomed beach by the county beach sifters, and detected continuously by many detectorists, which made my heart sink a bit. We talked a little when he said he was in Washington state, but his wife Stephanie was vacationing here in Southern California. After going over some of the particulars, I asked if he would contact his wife to have her call me, so I could try to narrow down the search area. Stephanie called me first thing in the morning as I was getting ready head to the spot for the search. She narrowed down the area for me with specifics. I explained to her about the county cleaners, and although using the term her husband had used in his email to me, “long shot”, I told her I would go and perform a thorough search. I asked her if she would be able to meet me there so I would be certain I was searching the correct area, she said she was scheduled to fly home to Washington, so instead of cancelling her fight, and because the possibility of a recovery was a long shot , she decided to fly home as scheduled.

When I got to the beach, to the area Stephanie described, my heart sunk even further. The county had been through with their machines, and the sand was smooth as if someone had dragged a 2×4 across it. I sent this picture to her so she would understand what the possibilities were.

I searched all of the area she had described to me. She told me she had been at the top of the slope, back from the edge going down to the water. I came up with very little in the way of any metal, the county is very thorough. I worked out further in each direction, in case the machines had just moved the ring instead of picking it up; nothing. I worked back from the edge to about 20 feet; nothing. I then decided to work the slope down to the beach, even though she told me she had not been sitting there. It was the one area the county does not clean with the machines. I worked along, and then got a real good signal in the head phones, dug, and had her ring in my scoop. I could not believe it! It was still there after 3 days! It wasn’t until I read Stephanie’s testimonial that I understood what possibly happened, she wrote, “A person nearby came over and started to help me – really pushing the sand away to try and uncover the ring.” I think that probably the person who “helped her”, really did help her, by probably throwing the ring down the slope, out of the reach of the county’s machines.

I got home, went to the post office after getting their address from Dan, and sent the ring off to Washington. What a great opportunity, to be of importance to someone in need; a great day indeed.

I flew into LA for a long weekend. On Sunday I decided to go to the beach. Before I left the hotel, I very intentionally decided to wear my wedding band but not engagement ring out that day. I was traveling without my husband and wanted to make sure I looked married.

 I jumped on the bus, grabbed a drink at Starbucks, and made my way to the ocean. I put on sunscreen. I sent happy pictures to my family. I popped in earbuds and was basking in the sun. I absentmindedly touched my left thumb to my ring finger. No wedding band!

 I sat up very carefully. I combed the beach with my fingers. Then I gently pushed the sand to the side with my palm. A person nearby came over and started to help me – really pushing the sand away to try and uncover the ring.  We searched for over half an hour. No ring to be found.

 I returned to the apartment, certain that the ring was lost. A day passed. Two days later a friend chided me to be more active in trying to get the ring back. I called the bus company. No ring. I went back to Starbucks. No ring. A third day passed. Late that night a friend encouraged me to check CraigsList lost and found. No ring, but a picture of a guy with a metal detector.

 I dropped a message to my husband (still at home, but with a Craigslist account) – “Can you contact this guy?” I gave my rough location for him to pass on– a cardinal direction and a life tower number. I sent along a vague aerial map with an arrow pointing to a stretch of sand.  I described my ring – it’s practically a hollow dime – 3mm wide and tiny – a size 4. I went to bed.

 I woke up in the morning and saw a text message from my husband. “Call him – his name is Steve.” I spoke with Steve. I was scheduled to get on a plane back home that morning and we agreed it was probably best for me to get on the plane versus meeting him on the beach.

 Before I boarded the plane, Steve sent a picture of the beach. It had been groomed the night before – smooth sand. I saw even less probability of a recovery.  I powered down my phone for the flight.

 I landed at home in Seattle. I fired up my phone as soon as we touched down. I saw an image had been delivered, but it took a moment to download. The image pushed through – It was Steve’s hand, palm up, sand in the background. In the palm, of course, my platinum, hollow dime of a wedding band.

 I’d been good about resisting crying up until this point, but I gasped and started crying when I saw this image. I called my husband, “Is that my ring?!” In retrospect, I am fairly certain the men sitting on either side of me on the plane thought they witnessed me being proposed to. In reality, I didn’t cry 8 years ago when my husband proposed. I reserved the tears for the moment that Steve presented me with the ring.

 Less than a day after landing, the ring arrived via secure post, courtesy of Steve, was back on my finger. For good!

Lost IPhone at Santa Monica Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

Clark called late afternoon yesterday saying that he had lost a cell phone at the beach, and was wondering if I could help. I was not able to go immediately, but let him know that I could go later. He decided to continue his search, and I offered some tips on how do the search himself. When I was able to go, I had not heard back from Clark, and thought they must have found the phone, but decided to call and check anyway. I was surprised, they did not find it, but I was hoping they would have called back. I asked him if they were still at the beach, and he said no, they had gone home, which was about 2 hours away. I then offered to still go and do the search, it was about 7:15 PM, so Clark gave me very good directions to the area they believed the loss occurred, in and around some swing-sets.

I got to the area about 8:30 PM, and was immediately discouraged, because the swings were full of young people enjoying themselves, and I wondered if I would get a chance to work the spot. People started to leave which gave me my opportunity. It took about 15 to 20 minutes for me to located the phone. I sent Clark a text that I had found the phone, and he asked for a photo of it to be sure. When he realized it was the phone he asked to meet and get it that night. I realized it must have some important information; maybe some medical information, or serious business contacts, I just did not know, so I told him no problem, whatever it was going to take. It was going to take almost 2 hours for them to meet with me, so I chose a coffee shop, and said I would wait for him there.

When Clark arrived, his girlfriend Aimee was with him, and it turned out that it was her phone. What a great guy Clark is to have coordinated all of this for his girlfriend. Also the importance of the phone was severe, because Aimee had an college exam on Monday, and all the information needed to study and take the exam was on that phone. I can’t think of a more stressful situation for a young person than that. I was sure happy to unite her with her phone, and make her day.

Wedding Ring Lost in the Sand at Hermosa Beach, CA…Found With a Fun Return.

Russell called me this afternoon after he had lost his ring. He was hoping I would be able to help. I asked a few questions, and said that it take me about an hour to get there because I was out of town, and he was willing to wait. Russell had taken his daughter to the beach to play on the swings. While he was watching his daughter , there was a group of young ladies playing volley ball near him, and the balls would sometimes come to where he was sitting. He would then pick up the ball and toss it back to the ladies, when the last time he did, his ring popped off and disappeared into the sea of sand.

When I got to the area, I could see Russell surrounded by a group of ladies all in the sand. I came to find out that the lady volley ball group was from China, and barely spoke any English, but when they realized what had happened to Russell, wanted to help him find his ring. By the time I got there they had been searching for at least 45 minutes scouring the sand where the loss took place. When they saw me and my equipment, they were very intrigued, and followed me as I searched. Each time I would get a signal, the ladies would huddle around as I brought up the find, and I would give each one of them the find to hold; a screw, a pull tab, a pin, etc. I then got a good signal in the head phones, and the ring was in the scoop. All the ladies clapped and Russell gave each one of them a big hug for their helpfulness. All of them wanted to take a lot of pictures, and this one just captures the moment with Russell’s great smile, surrounded by his helping crew. Great day!

Russell sent the following to include on this post:

Walking to and around the Strand in Hermosa with my daughter has become routine over the past couple years. From the Baby Bjorn at just a few months, to the hip, an occasional seat on the shoulders overseeing what probably feels like sitting on top of the world, to now, keeping up with the little Olympic sprinter, one thing is certain, I am in love. Having married three years ago, my wife and I were blessed with a beautiful daughter and our lives were forever turned upside down from the moment she arrived.

Recently, walks to the Strand have one general purpose, the swing.  We wake up, we eat breakfast, maybe take in a little PAW PATROL and then we’re out the door.  April 10th started as usual business.  We crossed the street and I asked my daughter if she wanted down to walk. Of course, she declined.  I asked if she were ready for the swings and she nodded while looking at me knowing I had the answer.

As we approached our stomping grounds, on this morning, we would have company. Not paying mind to the closeness of the action, I put my daughter in the swing where she immediately focused on the volleyballs flying in and around our direction.  As usual, I would give her a few pushes, move back a bit, drop to my knees and begin building my princess her sand castle that she eagerly awaits to climb, stomp, smash and use as a slide.

We had been at the beach for no more than ten minutes. While constructing the castle, a ball zipped in my direction that I caught and without hesitation, threw back to one of the girls training.  Moments later, another ball would find its way in my direction that I would catch, again, throw back however this time, would throw with it my wedding ring.  I immediately felt its weight “fly off” my finger.  Happening so quickly, I couldn’t see the exact direction the ring would travel however, my world stopped spinning. Flashbacks of my wedding day resurfaced.  Forgotten faces would reappear, and the sentiment of life would take new ownership.  The beach became a sea of memories and with it carried a feeling of unexplainable loss.

I called my wife to share with her what happened. She would soon show up to help aid in the search.  The volleyball team would literally come into play as well. A morning fit for a father and his daughter would become without notice, a search and rescue effort.  After forty-five minutes without discovery, a couple had approached the swings and learned of my story. Not too focused on their involvement, I would overhear the woman conversing with her partner that she was going to look for a metal detector.  Having no success at a local restaurant on the Strand, she walked to the Lifeguard unit where she was provided a yellow piece of paper with a gentleman’s phone number on it.  That gentleman would happen to be Steve Smith.

Not losing hope, but confidence, I reluctantly dialed Steve who would answer and agree to meet with me.  What would feel like an eternity, Steve would arrive a little over an hour after having talked on the phone with gear in hand and new life.

I shared with him my story, he mapped out a grid, began to detect and the rest is history.

As Steve searched, I pondered at the women’s volleyball team standing in a circle with me while waiting for any sign of good fortune.  I was thinking about how they were here from another country training to be Champions but yet became so concerned with finding my ring.  I was just a father searching for a piece of metal.  What mattered most?  Becoming a champion or a ring?  I guess in sports, one comes with the other.  I was so touched, honored and thankful for their selfless act of kindness, I had never before experienced anything like it in my lifetime.

What joy and happiness erupted once Steve turned up the ring will never be forgotten.  My world began to turn again, I felt like I had an army of angels around me and maybe I did.  I will find comfort in that for the rest of my life and will be forever grateful to the men and women that helped save not only the day, but the memory and meaning of watching my wife slide my wedding ring on my finger the day we married.

4 Tiffany & Co. Silver Rings Lost at Venice Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

Chris called this evening to ask my assistance in helping find a lost ring. I told him I would be glad to help, and I was on my way.

When I got to the beach Chris informed me that there were 4 rings lost, all Tiffany & Co. silver. His fiance’ Sarah had taken them off to apply sunscreen and put them on her towel. Forgetting she had done this, when they were ready to leave she picked up her towel and left. It wasn’t until they got to the car she realized her mistake. Chris and Sarah were about to head home to Sacramento, so instead of wasting time trying to search the sand themselves Chris did the thing he does well, and got on the internet for some ring finding research. He found me on The Ring Finder’s web page.

Chris led me to the area, and after talking to him and asking a few questions we both agreed the rings should be near where they were sitting, so I proceeded to begin my search there, and expand out. I think I made about 3 passes of my grid when I got a nice high tone (quarter sound) in my head phones. I dug the first ring in 1 scoop, scanned again and got the second ring. It ended up being one ring per scoop. She was so happy to have them back on her fingers. I just got a text from Chris on their 400 mile drive back home, who said that Sarah has been sleeping most of the way. I know she was able to relax, having her rings, that mean so much to her, rescued from the sea of sand they were lost in. Great day, more great smiles.

Palladium Wedding Ring Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

Yesterday evening I received a call from Brooke regarding the loss of her husband’s wedding ring at the beach, and wondering if I would be able to help them. I asked a few questions, and finding out they were pretty close told her I could be there in about 20 minutes. They had already left the beach after spending about 3 hours searching for the lost ring (I’m sure very discouraged), when they found me on the Internet, and agreed to go back to show me where the ring came off.

When I got there, I met Brooke (and their little one) who took me out to the area of the loss, where I met her husband Nick. Nick showed me the area which he had drawn out by lines in the sand; it was an area about 12-15 foot square. He showed me the exact spot he believed the ring came off, and I could see they had done a lot of digging there. Nick told me how he moved the sand he already searched through to another spot within the marked off area. I started my search, and when I reached the area that the sand had been moved to, I got a good solid signal in my headphones. I dug once and missed, I checked again and dug a second time, getting a nice silver looking ring in my scoop. I showed Nick and Brooke that I had found the ring to their surprise. Nick acknowledged that he must have thrown the ring over to the other area not knowing that he had it in his hands at one time during his search. After their 3 hours of searching, it took no more than 5 minutes on my part to reunite Nick with his token of commitment to Brooke. Great day, and great smiles all around.

I had been at the market this Saturday afternoon, and just pulled up in front of the house about 1:00 PM, when I received a call from Mike who had lost his ring in the sand earlier in the day. He is on vacation from Michigan, and did not want to leave his token of love behind in California. I told him I would be there in 1/2 an hour, and got ready to go.

I met Mike at the location, and he took me out to the spot of the loss. We went over what he believed had happened to cause the loss, and I agreed with him that the ring should be in the immediate area. I set up and began the search, and got a couple of bottle caps, a pull tab and an old battery. After going over the area, I began a cross grid knowing that sometimes a ring can be on edge or turned in such a way as to not be able to find it in one direction, but able to find it if searched for in a perpendicular direction. During the third pass on the cross grid I got a good strong shallow signal, and reached down and plucked Mike’s ring from the sand. I asked Mike about his ring, type of metal, etc., and then opened my hand to show him what I had found. Needless to say, he was very happy, it was now about 2:00 PM. It took a little more than an hour from first call to recovery for me to bring a great big smile back on Mike’s face, and that what it is all about.

Mike sent this nice complement:

Hey Steve,

I hope all is well!  I wanted to thank you again for locating my wedding band this weekend.  I’ve included a testimonial below;  please let me know if I can make any changes!
I’m so thankful for the quick and expert help Steve was able to give me.  I was visiting my brother and a group of his friends for the weekend, and we had decided to visit the beach to enjoy the weather. I had absentmindedly placed my wedding band in the cup holder of my beach chair earlier in the day as I was playing volleyball and swimming.  As the sun moved, our group decided to pick up stakes and move to a different part of the beach.  It wasn’t until after we set up our new spot that I realized my wedding band was missing.  I ran back to the area where our group had previously been and searched frantically for 20 minutes.  Realizing I was probably in for a long day (or that my ring was gone for good), I found Steve online and gave him a call.
Steve’s response time was incredible.  I expected to wait for hours at the beach, but in 30 minutes I saw Steve with his equipment walking down the strand.  He asked me a few basic questions about where I thought the ring was, set up a search grid, and located it in about 15 minutes.  I was awestruck.
You can tell that Steve is a passionate craftsmen, and I’m sure this is what made finding the ring so simple for him.  As we wrapped up, I got a chance to pick his brain about how and why he does what he does.  You can sense that he has a deep understanding of his equipment and the right techniques for the job. More than that, though, Steve seems to have a mission.  You can tell that he gets a lot of joy from finding items that are priceless to those that hold them dear.
Don’t lose your wedding band.  If that happens though, call this man.  He will find what you lost, and put a smile on your face too.
