I was having lunch yesterday with my wife and son who we were fortunate to be able to visit with his busy college schedule, when I received a call from Nate about his key that he lost at his local park. Nate had been exercising, and left his key and phone in a specific spot in the grass so as not to lose them while running. When he was finished, he picked up his phone, and forgot the key. When he got home he realized the key was still back at the park and went back to search for it. He told me that he searched for about 4 hours, and was not able to find it. I told him that because I was with my family, I could meet with him in the morning today to do a search. I figured that if he could not find it with a thorough search that no one was going to happen upon it before I got there.

I met Nate at the park at about 10:00 AM , and he took me to the area where he left his phone and key. It wasn’t huge, and the grass was not very high, but just high enough to hide a small item such as a key. I grabbed my detector, and pin pointer, and checked every signal, some were deep, and some surface (bottle caps and such). After about 3 passes in the grid I got a good signal, looked down, and in the grass saw Nate’s key. I walked over to him asking a question about his key when I opened my hand to show that it had been found. He just could not believe it was still there, thinking that possibly a dog might have eaten it, or someone might have found it. This key was his house key, and was so important that he had spent 4 hours searching for it, and looking on the internet in hopes of finding a way to recover it, where he found me on The Ring Finders site. I am glad he was successful in his internet search, and that I was able to be a part of the operation; GREAT SMILE!

Nate sent the following:

Hey! It was nice meeting you as well and I thank you again for helping me out.

Yesterday (03/24/17) I lost my house key at the park and I searched 3-4 hours for it on my own and had no luck. I called Steve and he said he couldn’t make it out that day but tomorrow would be better. We agreed to meet the next morning and he was there on time. He asked me a few intelligent questions, and his patience was remarkable. The hardest part about finding the key was that it was not on a keychain and not uniquely designed, but it still only took him 15 minutes to find it! I really needed that key to get in and out of my house. He pretty much made my week by finding it, and I thank him for taking the time to help me out. He didn’t make me feel like I was wasting his time, and I could tell he enjoys his job and takes it seriously. Thank you Steve!

I received a call from Pat this morning worried because she had lost her keys the day before. I agreed to meet her at the location, which would take me a couple of hours to get to. When I arrived Pat showed me the area, and it was covered with tall grass and weeds grown from recent rain storms. She told me that the bundle of keys was large, so I figured the hunt would be pretty simple. Also she was worried because some of the keys would be very hard to replace. Her car key was also with this bundle, so the likelihood of them being lost in this location was great because she had them when she arrived, but when she got back to her car she could not get in.

I proceeded to hunt in the tall grass, and worked the area slowly and surely. I covered the area completely, and then went out of the box. I then started looking in areas that might not have been a possibility, but still with no luck. It was a warm day here in So. Cal. (about 85 where I was hunting), so I went back to the truck to get a drink of water and regroup. I then went over the first area again with no luck. I knew from what Pat had told me, those keys had to be there, so I had to press on. At this point I decided to switch detectors, and went to a 6 inch coil, and then proceeded to begin the whole search again. I got to the mid way point when I got a confirming signal. I put in my pin pointer, and found Pat’s keys in weeds that really were not too high, but had wide leaves which were able to hide her keys quite well.

Pat had gone off walking her dogs when I found her keys, and was walking back as I was getting back to the car. At this time I raised my hand with her keys dangling, and could see relief appear on her face. It was a pleasure to be able to help Pat today, and to know I was a part of the joy she experienced.
