Carbon Tungsten ring recovered from Lakewood playground

  • from Denver (Colorado, United States)

Camden had been given a carbon tungsten ring as a grade school graduation present by his mother, Sabrina. In the first week of middle school Camden was playing football with some friends in the school’s grassy playground when his prized ring slipped off his hand, he was hear broken. Sabrina went to a local store and she rented a couple of metal detectors to help them in the search for Camden’s ring. After searching in vain for a couple of hours the two began to realize that finding a ring in a large grassy field isn’t easy. Sabrina ended up finding my profile on The Ring Finders and called me. I had time to meet her and Camden at the school so that they could show me where he was at and the extents of my future search but I didn’t have time to preform that search that night. A couple of night later I made my way to the grassy field behind the school and began my search. After a couple of hours and quite a bit of trash later I received a great signal on my CTX and there was Camden’s ring. He was quite happy to get his ring back, but now he doesn’t wear it to school.

White gold ring returned in Lakewood, Colorado

  • from Denver (Colorado, United States)

Sunday morning I received a call from Justin. He told me of the loss of his wife’s white gold, wedding ring the night before. They had spent a fare amount of time looking for her ring that night and with the coming of the morning we awoke to 3 inches of fresh snow. I arrived at Justin & Maima’s house just before 10:00AM. The weather was just starting to warm up but not quite warm enough to melt the snow. We set a search plan with me starting to detect the neighbors yard and with the fresh snow it was easy to see my search pattern. But the yard was loaded with shooter alcohol bottles and their caps. By lunch time I had searched that yard, the wooded fence line separating that from the property to the south and also the neighbor’s yard to the south.

After a quick lunch break I returned to the search but this time with another machine. I picked more trash out of the neighbor’s yard, by now my trash pouch was over flowing. A little after 2:00 the temperature had warmed and the snow was starting to melt quickly. Due to the  circumstances of the rings loss, Justin and I decided to look on the roof of the neighbor’s house and garage. No luck so we made our way back to Justin’s house. Maima had given up hope and was on her way to meet us. As Justin and I reached the now melted end of the neighbors driveway, within just a few feet of Maima, I looked down and there laid Maima’s ring. To say she was excited would be a huge understatement. I received several hugs from both Maima and Justin.

Heart Ring Lost In Lakewood CO Found By Metal Detector

  • from Aurora (Colorado, United States)

Belinda and kids had a family sledding adventure in 7 inches of snow at the local school grounds in Lakewood Colorado.  After making a snow angel in the snow she stood up to shake off the snow on her hands. To her astonishment her double heart ring went flying into the deep snow.  Gone in an instant.  After a frantic search in the cold snow proved uneventful they had to resort to a google search for some help with a metal detector. After a 20 minute search in that deep cold snow the Tenacious Treasure Tracker found the double heart ring about four inches down. Happy ending to cold snowy day!

Wedding ring found in back yard – Lakewood, Colorado

  • from Denver (Colorado, United States)

Olivia Frank had lost her wedding ring in her back yard. The couple had searched the yard extensively without any luck. After 6 months of worry and frustration they found “Ring Finders” and through that my contact information. We made arrangements and set a meeting date for me to join them at their home for a brief talk and survey of the site.

My first trip to their house gave me the story of the rings loss and the layout of the yard. I managed to get in about three hours of search time before rain and snow drove me off the hunt site. I was certain that the ring was not in the portion of the yard they swore it in.

Upon my second trip to their house I went over the area that I had previously searched with two other detectors and no ring. I then expanded my search area and started running another search pattern. After another three hours of searching I ended up finding the ring several feet away from the expected location.

“Liv” was so excited and happy that she began to tear up when she got her hands on her ring again. It did need a good cleaning by a jeweler, but that is what happens when a ring is left to the elements for several months.

Ring recovered on December 4, 2010.
