Wedding Band and Engagement Ring Lost at South Point Sportsplex Baltimore, Maryland…Found by Ring Finder

  • from Washington (District of Columbia, United States)

Ashley’s Rose Gold Engagement Ring and Wedding Band Both Recovered by Brian Rudolph

A Miracle Took Place! Ashley, in a State of Shock, Holding Her Most Precious Material Possessions at South Point Sportsplex, Port Covington Baltimore, Maryland

BRIAN RUDOLPH, LOST ITEM RECOVERY SPECIALIST (LAND, WATER, SAND, SNOW, LEAVES, HOUSES & VEHICLES) WILL FIND YOUR LOST KEEPSAKE! CALL ASAP (301) 466-8644!

I received a phone call from a young lady named Ashley who was completely distraught and overwhelmed regarding the loss of not only her wedding band but also her engagement ring, as well. She and her husband Tyler contacted me while I was driving to another search in Washington, DC.. Their hope was that I might be able to help them recover these two very precious objects of love.

The couple found me on the elite international directory of metal detectorists called THE RING FINDERS. Upon reading my profile on the website, they learned that I provide metal detecting services in Baltimore, Maryland.

Ashley and Tyler went on to share details of how Ashley’s rose gold wedding band surrounded with diamonds and her rose gold engagement ring with a 1 carat solitaire purple sapphire surrounded by diamonds went missing. Apparently, 24 hours before their call to me, Ashley drove to an outdoor sportsplex to be involved in a flag football game. She parked her car, took off both of her rings, placed them in an outside pocket of a string backpack that contained her sports gear inside, and then proceeded to walk to the field to participate in the game. The pocket that she put the rings in had a zipper that was unfortunately broken. Knowing this, she took the precaution of pushing the sentimental pieces as far down into the pocket as possible and then carried the pack over her shoulder as Ashley headed for the game.

Later in the evening, after Ashley arrived back home, she remembered to retrieve the rings from her backpack. When she reached into the pocket, there was nothing inside! Panic began to set in! Immediately, she told Tyler of the situation and the two of them frantically searched their house and vehicle for the two most important material possessions that Ashley owned. Sadly, the rings were not discovered.

After the couple couldn’t find either one of the rings at their residence, they quickly traveled over to the sportsplex to see if maybe the rings dropped out of the backpack on the parking lot or on the football field. They spent hours looking and scouring every inch of where Ashley had walked, as well as where she placed her things during the game and neither ring turned up.

The two of them returned home demoralized by the unfortunate circumstances. Their only hope for finding Ashley’s rings was that they were lost in the grass where she put her things prior to the football game. Since they checked the parking lot already and everything looked clear, they were quite afraid that the rings could have already been spotted by somebody and picked up. Ashley and Tyler truly hoped that that was not the case and that the rings were still on the field.

The next day, Tyler went back to the sportsplex and checked the parking lot once again. Then, he moved his way over to the football field and investigated the grassy area one more time and his efforts unfortunately led to no avail. Ashley would do the same two more times before they looked online for additional help. That’s when I finally came into the story.

I felt so torn while I was driving to that Washington DC search because I knew that time was of the essence if Ashley had lost the rings on the parking lot concrete. They were emotionally worn out and extremely upset with what happened. I told the couple that if I finished the in-house search early enough that evening, I would drive straight to Baltimore to do a late night search for the missing rings. As it turned out, I did not complete the Washington DC search until after 10:00 p.m. . Therefore, I scheduled Ashley’s search for the following day sometime during the mid-afternoon.

It was a beautiful day outside as I drove into the city of Baltimore. To my right, I viewed many shipyards lined up along the very busy ports. On my left, were dozens of factories with smoke stacks and little houses that were intermingled between warehouses and old store fronts. I arrived at the South Point Sportsplex parking lot almost at the same time that Ashley arrived.

Once I parked, I made my way over to Ashley’s vehicle where we greeted one another and then the two of us immediately got started. She showed me where her car was originally parked and then took me to the football field. Upon getting back to the parking lot, I went to my car and retrieved the necessary equipment to search Ashley’s vehicle to see if the rings may had slipped down between the seats. I used a special endoscope to be able to fit down into crevices and spaces that the naked eye cannot detect. After checking inside, underneath and around both the front and back seats, I was convinced that Ashley’s wedding band and engagement ring did not drop out of the backpack inside the vehicle. This left us with checking the grass and the parking lot.

Next, I got out my metal detector and necessary gear to check the grassy path that led up to the football field. It took me maybe about 25 minutes to grid several lines back and forth; up and down the hill. That area was filled with trash but I was still able to confirm without a doubt that neither ring was dropped leading up to the football field.

The Area Where Ring Finder, Brian Rudolph Searched the Parking Lot for the Missing Rings.

Just as I was about to grid search the football field sideline where the backpack was placed just before the beginning of the game, I noticed a car pulling into the parking lot which parked extremely close to where I marked off that section with cones. Ashley had shown me the possible spaces where she believed she parked on the evening of the disappearance of the rings, and so I wanted to keep that area off limits to other vehicles. With urgency, I said to Ashley, ‘We need to protect our territory. Let’s delay metal detecting the field and I will cover the blacktop next while that car remains parked there’. She agreed with my plan and immediately the two of us returned to the parking lot.

It was at this point that I began to do a grid pattern on the parking lot concrete. Ashley recognized that the likelihood that the rings were actually on the concrete was extremely slim.   And if the rings had in fact dropped out of the backpack prior to Ashley making it to the field, they would have been most likely spotted by either Ashley or Tyler, or a pedestrian who would have eyeballed the keepsakes as he or she was getting out of their vehicle or returning to their car upon leaving the football game (or some other event that was being held in the previous couple of days). When I deal with searches like this one, I don’t allow all of those negative (though realistic) scenarios get in the way of my search attempt. The reason why I call myself an Item Recovery Specialist is because I look at every possibility and I don’t count out any location or distance around that area where the item or items may have been lost.

I have to admit, when I was first contacted to do this search for the lovely young couple, I knew my chances were near to none in finding the rings there in the parking lot. The probability was much better that we could recover one or both rings hidden in the turf of the football field. They would have been securely hidden beneath the grass and protected from one’s eyes. Yet, I never doubt the possibility that a miracle can happen. I’ve seen and heard too many amazing and fantastic ring search finishes!

As I was detecting halfway into the third grid line on the concrete, I got a promising signal that I was compelled to check out. Up to that point I had recovered other little pieces of metal, including: a couple of pull tabs, a coin, and a few miscellaneous targets made of aluminum.

Just as I was going down to check out the object that I had detected, my eyes “zeroed in” on the most beautiful piece of jewelry that appeared to be rose gold in color, and the shape was that of a halo – or better yet…a ring! I did a double take and I could confirm that I had in fact found Ashley’s gorgeous engagement ring! It was stunning to look at! What an unbelievable recovery! I almost had to pinch myself because this was just too good to be true! I couldn’t wait to surprise the distraught young lady who was patiently hanging out in the parking lot about 25 feet from where I was conducting the search! Before I said anything, I continued on metal detecting with the hope that perhaps the wedding band had also not been spotted and picked up by someone.

Both the Engagement Ring and Wedding Band Just Three Feet Apart from One Another in the Middle of a Parking Space!

I finished that particular grid line where I found the engagement ring and eventually moved on to the next lane, starting my way back in the other direction. Inside of me, there was so much suspense and tension building within because I knew that if I was going to find the wedding band, it would most likely be found not too far away from where the first one fell out of the backpack. Well, just as I swung my Minelab Equinox 800 detector approximately 3 feet from where I found the 1 carat solitaire purple sapphire surrounded by diamonds engagement ring, I got another fantastic signal that was worth checking out. I began to kneel down to investigate the target when all of a sudden another rose gold ring came into sight! It was Ashley’s rose gold and diamond tiara wedding band! Once again, I couldn’t believe what was happening! Not only did I recover the engagement ring, but I had found the missing wedding band, as well! Incredible! What a miracle! I know that the prayer that Ashley and I petitioned up to God just prior to beginning the search had absolutely been answered! The complete ring set belonging to this sad and defeated bride was about to return to Ashley’s left hand! Wow! What a moment that I was experiencing! The odds of this happening is few and far between! My heart was racing uncontrollably! The two rings had fallen out of the backpack just as Ashley had removed it from her vehicle! Then, for the next couple of days, the precious jewelry laid bare on the parking lot concrete, unseen by the couple and everyone else for that matter! Incredible! It had not even been run over by a tire!

Minutes later, I surprised Ashley with the first ring! She was completely blown away by my discovery! The moment was totally surreal! And then…I unveiled the second band! That’s when the floodgates within her eyes opened up and at that point there was no stopping the pouring tears of happiness! She was beyond grateful for my work and so very relieved that the two most important material objects that she owned (which she thought were most likely gone forever) had returned to her once again…and forever they will remain with their rightful owner! I will never forget that day in Baltimore, Maryland when I recovered those two beautiful symbols of love from that busy South Point parking lot where they laid for nearly three days!

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

I got a text message the other day in regards to Lost Ring at Locarno Beach Vancouver. I quickly called Maya to discuss the search and found out that she had taken the ring off and put it in your shorts pocket while she went for a swim, when she got out of the water she put on her shorts and didn’t realize till later that the ring was missing.

This has been happening a lot lately, people taking off the rings to keep them safe then forgetting and the ring falling out of her pocket or out of the shoe, very common. I found out that she had lost it the day before which always is a concern that somebody might beat me to it. When I arrived and started my search I quickly started finding pieces of iron, bottle caps ,and pull tabs so I was confident we had a good chance of finding it.

Maya also told me that she was going to dinner that night at her boyfriends parents place and it was her boyfriend’s mother who gave her the ring, so you can imagine how important it was that she had the ring on when she went there for dinner.

After 10 minutes I found her beautiful ring, I went to surprise her and my camera was full and I had no space to make the video I tried to do it on my GoPro I have to edit and see if I have enough footage to show you… the most important thing is we found her ring and her smile

Why rent a metal detector when you can hire a metal detecting specialist, most people buy or rent and metal detector to find their lost ring.  When they do not find it, out of desperation they call me for help.  When I find it they ask me why did you find it and we couldn’t? I have close to 50 years experience in metal detecting, the equipment is only as good as the person using it. If you’ve never used a Metal Detector it’s not as easy as one would think, there’s a lot more to it than just swing the loop.

This ring was lost under a patio in loose rocks and leaves, the young man went under there for a little while but cannot find it. When I got there I search the outside edges of the patio and then I took my search under the patio. After a short time I got a signal my hand held pin pointer and found his ring under some rocks and leaves. It’s amazing how these rings disappear from sight and find a hiding place where people can’t see it.

Lost Gold Wedding Band at English Bay Beach, Vancouver…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Lost your ring at the beach…Call: Chris Turner 778-838-3463 Member & CEO of TheRingFinders.com

First Day of the Year and First Gold ring of the Year…Most of my recoveries start with a call followed with a location but this was different. It was Jan.1st 2020 and I went to English Bay beach after the Polar Bear swim where I waited for dark to start my search of the beach.

I started detecting the beach where just hours before there were thousands of people diving into the cold water to bring in the new year. I saw another detectorist (Steve) nice young man out detecting, we talked for a bit and continued on our way.

I’ve searched many years after the polar bear swim and I hardly find enough to buy a coffee and have never found gold after this event. That changed today, I found a beautiful 18 kt gold wedding band with 3 small diamonds. What a great feeling to see that in my scoop and I had a great feeling that I would find the owner as there was the wedding date and name in this ring.

When I got home I posted it on the Craigs List and when I woke up the next morning I had 4 bogus emails & text messages in regards to the ring…All scams! Then another hunter contacted me with a number of someone who had lost a ring that matched mine. I contacted the man and he called me back a few hours later with the exact details of the ring!

As most of you know I get joy out of returning these cherished keepsakes back to their owners and what a great young man I met today, as you can imagine he was very happy!

Lost & Found Ring in Langley BC…

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I received a call at 8:30 p.m on Sunday in regards  to a lost ring at a  playground in Langley. The young man told me that the ring belonged to his 5 year old daughter and it was just given to her that day from her grandmother. The story was that the girls grandmother just arrived back from Ireland where she bought the ring for her granddaughter. It was lost only 4 hours after she was given the ring.

I was getting ready to hit the hay as I had to get up at 4:30 am when Scott called, I knew this had to be looked for that evening as a lot of people search playgrounds and that ring could have been found the next day. I jumped into my car and headed 25 minutes down the road to Langley to help find the ring.

It was just starting to get dark when I arrived and Scott showed me the area his daughter was playing in, so I started my search. About 20 minutes into the search I found the ring!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love my job! Scott was so happy that the ring was found and I’m sure grandmother would be too!

Lost Gold Ring in West Vancouver…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I received a call from a young lady the other day asking if I could help her find a lost ring that was a gift from her mom & dad and daughter, many years ago. After asking a few questions I came to realize she wasn’t a hundred percent sure it was lost where she thought it was…in the garden.

To her it made sense because she put the rings on just before she went out for lunch then at the last second she  jumped in the garden to do a few things, she didn’t realize until later she was missing one ring. After searching the car and then searching her house she thought of renting a metal detector and that’s when she found TheRingFinders.

Why rent a metal detector when you can hire a metal detecting expert to come out and help you find your lost item…It will save you countless hours and ensure you that the ring is there or not there. I always wonder how many people have rented a metal detector and didn’t find their ring and just gave up? Its not as easy as we make it look, we know our detectors and importantly the environment we are searching and the questions that will help us get close to what we are looking for.

In this search I couldn’t use my metal detector because of the thick over growth of flowers & plants and the fact that there was wire hold the flowers up. OK bring out the handheld pin pointer and get on my hands and knees and start the slow search!

Not long after searching the first area, Bingo! I was lucky to find her beautiful ring in the second location!

Lost Diamond Engagement Ring in North Surrey…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Another victim of our February snowstorm…I received a call from Linda who was extremely saddened by the recent loss of her Tiffany diamond engagement ring that she received at Christmas. After talking to her on the phone for around 10 minutes I learned that she had bought a metal detector, took the day off work and searched with friends but could not find her engagement ring. It’s not uncommon for people to rent or buy a metal detector thinking they will find their ring themselves. Most people don’t realize it takes practice to use a detector and I have over 40 years of practice.

It was snowing out pretty hard, I jumped into my car and headed to North Surrey to help her find her diamond engagement ring. The side roads were a bit of a challenge in my car but I made it to her place, She showed me the area where she was scraping snow off of her car and where her dad was shovelling snow. I started my search in the area where we believe the ring should’ve fallen and after 15-20 minutes and no ring I started searching away from the hot spot.

Not long after I heard that sweet loud and proud target signal and Bang! Found it…

I had one very happy young lady! I love my job! I get to make people Smile!

Anniversary Ring Found St. Albert, Alberta Canada

  • from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact:

IMG_0950 IMG_0949

Dawna  emailed me late last night asking if I would help find  her ring. When I called her this morning she told me that she had been doing yard work on Tuesday and that evening noticed her ring was missing from her finger.  Over the next few days she went out to try and find it but with no luck,  then thought that perhaps she had lost it in her bedroom and was unable to find it there either.

When I arrived around 8:30 this morning she showed me where in the yard her ring might be,  and said that she had also worked in her flower pots.  I checked a small area in her front yard, then moved to the back yard and did the same.  Her ring was in the last pot that  I checked in the back yard. My pin-pointer picked up a strong signal about three inched down. Another Happy Client. Thank you Dawna for e-mailing TheRingFinders.

Lost Titanium Wedding Band at English Bay Beach…Found

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I got a call the other night from a young man who was on his honeymoon from Cleveland Ohio.  He told me that he lost his titanium wedding band well paddle boarding at English Bay Beach, he knew the area where the ring came off because it was when he fell of the board.

We discussed the search and because it was going on a high tide there was nothing i could do until morning. The young man was able to tell me where the ring was lost because it marked off the area and had land marks for me to line up with.

I wanted to be on the beach by 7:30 but I couldn’t find parking because there was a huge marathon going on early in the morning , it took me over an hour to get near the beach where I could park.

After setting up my grid I began to search and only 20 minutes into the search I got a good signal and I looked into the sand scoop to see his titanium wedding band…

Lost Silver Ring at Jericho Beach…Found

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I received a call the other night from a young lady about a lost silver ring that was in the shape of a pyramid. She told me she was at Jericho Beach at 1 am and dove off the swim dock and realized right away that her ring came off. This ring was special as it was given to her by her boyfriend and as you could imagine it was super sentimental.

The young lady went back to the beach the next morning at low tide to look for the ring but couldn’t find it. As she was walking off the beach she saw my pamphlet for The Ring Finders and she gave me a call… I took all the information over the phone where she believed the ring was lost as she she took a late night dive off the dock and that was all the info I need.

I arrived at the beach as the tide was going out and started my search, after 45 minutes I could not find the ring and I checked my email and realized I was at the wrong beach… I raced over to the beach where I should have started and I begun my search.

After only 15 minutes I got a nice strong signal close to the chain that held the dock in place, there it was just an inch or son under the sand…
