Handal lost his wedding ring while swimming at his house on 30A when it came off. Luckily he was able to note the area he lost it in 3 ft of water. After about 20 minutes I was able to recover the ring and get it back to him. Another happy client. 

Property Markers Missing For Close to 50 Years

  • from Old Orchard Beach (Maine, United States)

I was recently contacted by Nathaniel about some missing property markers on his property, in Hollis, Maine, about 25 miles west of Portland, Maine. Nathaniel had found my RingFinders Metal Detecting Service by doing a Google search for “How to find Missing Property Markers, With A Metal Detector”.  My name was right near the top of the list. Nathaniel asked if I could help locate any of the markers with my metal detector, if the markers were still there at all.  He told me that the home had been built in the early 1970’s and he had purchased the property 8 years ago. Nathaniel was told there were property markers at the time the home was built, according to records he had obtained. He was also told by the previous owner that at least one marker had been removed many years ago. The property is a rural area and his 2+ acres were a combination of woods, field, marshy areas and generally overgrown underbrush.  I agreed to help and arranged to meet him the next morning.
Nathaniel met me bright and early and showed me where he thought one of the property markers should be. I told Nathaniel  that we would dig and investigate every target. As I detected the area, I was finding absolutely nothing. No trash, nails or any other metal was being found. Finally after approximately 30 minutes, I had an iron target. Unfortunately, it turned out to be an old nail.  As I started detecting again, a property marker was visibly seen, approximately 50-60 feet further west than Nathaniel had me detecting in. The marker was found in an overgrown area of new and dead grass.

With one marker found, we proceeded into a swampy area approximately 400 feet into the woods. The area had many downed trees and was very very wet and mucky. I detected and visually looked for approximately 2 1/2 more hours with no luck on the remaining 2 markers. Nathaniel also did a very through visual search while I was detecting the areas. Had the markers been removed years ago by the owner, hunters, kids playing in the woods? Had the markers fallen victim to one of the many fallen trees and is now under one of those large trees? We may never know but Nathaniel now has one of his property markers to start with his surveying of the property.
So, not all call outs are for finding a ring or necklace with a metal detector. Next time you are contacted, you may just be heading into a wooded, swampy area looking for property markers.

Lost Gold Ring in Salt Lake City, Utah- Found

This was actually my first call of 2023 after a large snow storm rolled through Utah. Jefferey and his girlfriend were having a snowball fight when he noticed his large gold ring came off his finger. I met them at the scene of the battle and quickly searched the area which was littered with trash. After about two hours, I was unsuccessful of locating the ring. Since it was right next to a busy road and plenty of interference, I knew I need to come back with a smaller coil.

The next week, the snow had melted and I was in route back to my house with about 15 minutes to kill so I stopped by the area. I put on my smaller coil and right next to the powerline cable was the ring. There was a few pieces of trash around it but it was literally about a foot from the sidewalk and anyone could have came by and grabbed it. The reason why I haven’t posted this recovery earlier is that I am still trying to get in touch with Jefferey as his phone number has been disconnected. I am hoping he will reach out to me following the post.

Lost Gold Wedding Ring – FOUND after being lost for 3 YEARS! Campbell, Ohio

  • from Indiana (Pennsylvania, United States)

Lost your ring, other valuable jewelry, cellphone, keys, or other metal object…call or text Brian Carpenter at (814)244-2300 as soon as possible. I am a ring recovery specialist serving Pittsburgh, Indiana (PA), and most of Western PA. I received a text from David about his wedding ring that he had lost three years ago. David had been digging some rocks out of a wooded area behind his house and thought he had lost it there. He had rented a metal detector and said that he looks every winter/spring before things start growing, but to no avail. The trip would be about two hours one way and I was hoping that the ring finder who lived closer would be interested but told David that if the other person didn’t come out I would.

So I arrived at David’s and he showed me the search area. Pretty standard, front yard, back yard, garden, and just to throw in a degree of difficulty a wooded area that was pretty swampy. David thought for sure it was in the wooded area where he was digging the rocks. I checked the front yard…nothing…wooded area…nothing…garden….nothing…backyard….nothing. So I has checking a small strip next to the house. There was a lot of feedback and interference in just this little patch…I don’t know why, but I dropped my sensitivity to almost zero to get rid of the noise. Then I started walking backward and got a solid hit. From about an inch or two under the ground I found his wedding ring.

I called David and he came out and I gave him his ring back. He had the biggest smile and was very happy, not actually believing I found it. Then David told me that about 5 minutes before I called him he had just got done saying some prayers to St. Anthony. I usually do the same before I start any search knowing I can always use all the help I can get, so it might be safe to say I had a little divine intervention! I am glad David got his ring back and as always it is great to meet nice people and return what was lost.
