I received an email last night from a young lady I will call, Nikki. Nikki was cleaning the snow off of her car when she noticed that her keys had fallen out of her pocket. We had just gotten nearly a foot of newly fallen snow and while Nikki searched through the snow with her hands and a rake she was unable to locate her keys. I emailed Nikki a reply and told her that I would be out to her home in the morning and see if I could find her keys.
I arrived at Nikki’s house this morning and began my search, which was hampered by all of the rebar in her concrete driveway along with very uneven snow piled around her car. I lowered my sensitivity quite a bit on my detector and I leveled off the snow with a shovel immediately around all sides of Nikki’s car. The leveling off of the snow actually took longer than finding her keys as I would scan each shovel full of snow in the event that I had scooped up her keys. Once I had a nice evened out surface of snow I found Nikki’s keys in hard packed snow on the drivers side of her car. Nikki was at work so I delivered her keys to her at her office. As expected, Nikki was happy to get her keys back in her possession.
Received a call to look for a group of keys that he thought he had lost shoveling the driveway. One of the keys was to his car, which he could not move. Also a series of house keys and others. I started to search with CTX 3030. Found a lot of metal interference. Took rake and searched my signals along with my pinpointer. Nothing! There was a large pile of snow near some steps with a metal railing. Decided to use the pinpointer and buried it into the pile. BINGO!!
While doing a fall cleanup in Elmhurst, Illinois a gentleman lost his wedding band which he had for34 years. Went in the backyard with him and found it in under 30 minutes. THANK YOU FALL CLEANUP!!
While in transit to a ring hunt in Elgin, Illinois, I received a call from a woman asking me to come to Dekalb, Illinois after my search in Elgin, Illinois. Apparently her husband lost it while using the snowblower around Christmas. The snow had started to melt and they were still unable to locate the White Gold wedding band. I arrived at her home and went inside to have her fill out my search contract. She put on her coat so she could shoe me the area it was lost in. I stepped outside and looked down and picked up the ring. It was in plain view since the snow had just melted. No detector required. Probably my fastest hunt EVER!!
Man lost his wedding band in the snow in Lombard, Illinois. I did a quick search and recovered it for him on December 24th. Merry Christmas!!
Received a call to look for two rings in the snow. A diamond engagement ring and a wedding band. The 8 year old was playing with her friend and decided to throw the rings out the window. I never ask why!!
First found the wedding band. The owner never expected me to find the engagement ring. Found BOTH!!
Received a text message asking me to look for a ring lost while doing fall cleanup in Wheaton, Illinois. There were 4 possible areas that it could have been lost in. Found it in the first area I hunted. Used my CTX3030. Rang up at 26 VDI.
Received frantic call, lost her wedding ring off her deck.
About an hour of searching it finally showed up, her smile says it all!
Lost Wedding ring found in Palatine, Illinois
Gentleman and his family came to Glen Ellyn Lake Park to watch the cardboard post races on July 3rd.. While watching they moved to another location. The ring was in the cup holder of a chair. They were uncertain as to which location it came out or if it came out while going to the location.
I hunted the first location and thats where I found it. It came in at 11/22 on the CTX 3030. About a twenty minute hunt. Even the Park manager was surprised I found it. Needless to say I gave the manager my card for future loses.
