Lost Diamond Ring, Ma Me O Beach, Alberta, Canada.

I received a call from Noreen on June 24th regarding a diamond ring that her mother Edna had lost while out swimming in the lake the day before.  After asking Noreen a few questions I agreed to drive out to the lake the next day.

June 25:  I arrived at Ma Me O Beach and met Noreen and her mother Edna, at the cabin. Noreen showed me the area that they were in the lake swimming. The area was huge, approximately the size of a football field. I told Noreen that the search was going to be tough, almost like looking for a needle in a hay stack!

The search took me over four sand bars which were waist deep, and chest deep between each bar. It was good that Noreen had pictures of her mother on a float tube and this gave me a good reference point to start my search.  I searched the area for about four hours and called it a day. I told Noreen I would be back the following day.

July 26:  I decided to do an early morning search because the lake would be smooth like a sheet of glass which made it a pleasant time to search. The water was clear so I was able to see the sandy bottom.  Noreen also wanted to assist in the search so I gave her my backup detector.  We went over the search area that I did the previous day and had no luck. The weather forecast for the next few days was not good; the lake would be very rough and impossible to do a good search.

July 3:  The Lake was calm and a nice day for a search.  After studying the pictures and checking my GPS tracking I decided on an area but again had no luck.  My equinox 800 developed problems so I changed to my 3030 and proceeded to search, again with no luck.

 

July 11:  A very busy day at the lake with lots of people out.   We covered a huge area with no luck.

 

July 16:  I expanded my search area.  I must say for a busy lake the bottom was very clean with hardly any junk in the lake. Again, another day with no luck.

 

July 21:  I regrouped with Noreen and her brother Dan and asked again the same questions which I had asked before.  I must have sounded like a broken record to them but it was very important to me. Again we did a thorough search of the area and again no luck. I could tell Noreen and Dan where starting to doubt if the ring was ever going to be found. I told them I would find that ring and that it just takes time. Edna said to me that the ring is gone and someone else was going to find it. I told her if someone was going to find it that would be me.  That helped to reassure Edna.  Edna had just celebrated her 93rd birthday on the day she lost her ring.  The ring had been given to her by her father and had been on her finger for the past 60+ years.

 

July 26:  I did a weather check and the lake was rough, but the day was expected to be a nice so I decided to head out again.  When I arrived, the lake was rough so I waited it out and by noon the wind died down so we were able to search again.  I told Noreen that I was going to find the ring today if I had to stay in the lake all day!  Two hours into the search I received a loud tone followed by a sweet low tone.  Music to my ears! I knew it could be the ring.  I scooped it up and to my surprise there was the ring!  I walked over to Noreen and asked her if this was “IT”.  She could not believe that I had found her mother’s ring after so many hours in the lake searching.  What a wonderful feeling that was for me to be able to see Edna put the ring back on her finger.

 

Thank you, Noreen for sticking with me and not giving up on me.  Another happy client

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

Pat called me on Tuesday evening to ask for help in finding Ann’s lost wedding ring. The one he gave her 40 years ago. Ann had been playing volleyball with the grandkids in the front yard of their home. After that and some basketball, she noticed her wedding ring was not on her finger. I said we would be there to hunt at 8:00 AM the next day. Carrie and I loaded up early and arrived at the hunt site on time. Ann showed us where she was during the volleyball game. Sid found it 10 minutes after the hunt began. Needless to say, Ann was very happy to see her ring again. It was a pleasure to help out such a charming lady. Thank you for your generous reward and the delicious blueberry muffins.

  

Lost Ring Willmore Park Edson Alberta

from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-780-497-2118

 

  

I received a call from Rod regarding his fiancee’s lost engagement ring.  After asking Rod a few questions I agreed to drive out to Edson which is a 2 hrs drive west of Edmonton.  I told Rod to have his fiancee  call me.

Tamara called me and explained that she was walking on the trails in Willmore park and noticed that her ring was missing from her finger.  Tamara told me that she had a metal detector and had spent a few hours retracing her foot path but had not found the ring.  I asked her if she had checked her car and the clothing she was wearing that day and she told me she had gone through everything and everywhere and that her kids had also checked.

When I meet up with Tamara in Edson  I again asked her if she had checked her car and jacket pockets and she said yes,  then as we drove to the area where she thought she had lost her ring, and as I get out of  my car at the park, I heard Tamara screaming “I found my ring”.   She had found her ring in the inside pocket of her Jacket!

Thank you Tamara for calling me to help you find your Ring.

Found: Diamond Ring

On the night of October 19th, 2018, Noelle was walking her dog in an open area near her parent’s home. The dog decided to run and she was pulled off balance. Later, Noelle realized her beautiful diamond ring was missing. Not knowing where she lost the ring, she carefully searched her parent’s house and retraced her steps. When she couldn’t find the ring, she called me.

Noelle did a great job showing me where and how she walked the dog that night. Because it was dark, she could not pin-point exactly where she was when the dog pulled her off her feet. The field is directly under power lines, which can sometimes interfere with metal detectors. After making the proper adjustments to my detector, I searched the area for a couple of hours. I then traced Noelle’s steps back to her parent’s house. I also went through her car. I was not ready to give up. After a business trip, I planned to return with another detectorist and expand my search area,

I happened to be passing through the neighborhood on the way home from another search (gold hoop earring) when I decided to stop and do a quick search. This time I entered the field from the opposite direction. It was getting difficult to see in the dark. While I was walking back to the car I found the ring. It was further away from where Noelle thought she had fallen. There had been enough foot traffic in the area to push the ring into the clay-like soil. Because it was so late, I returned home and called Noelle with the good news. I met with her a few days later to return the ring.

If I can be of service, the fastest way to get me is to text or call 703-598-1435.

Lost Tungsten ring found with a metal detector Glen Haven Beach, Glen Haven, Mi

from Traverse City (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-231-499-7526

I got a text from Zach and Caitlyn that Zach had lost his Wedding ring at the Glen Haven Beach. Zach put the ring in a pocket in the side of the beach chair to go swimming. They had just left the beach and Caitlyn was searching the internet on how to find a Tungsten ring in the sand, one of my tagged blog post came up. They turned around and waited for me to drive the hour up to Glen Haven. I had them put a couple of my 4 foot snowplow stakes in the sand and made me a search area. It took about 3 minutes to find the ring less that 2 feet from one of the stakes. Zach thanked me for getting him out of the dog house. Zach and Caitlyns one year anniversary is coming up.

I was very happy to help and appreciate the reward.

 

Diamond Wedding Ring Set Found and Returned by Kerrville Metal Detectorist

from Kerrville (Texas, United States)
Contact: 1-830-285-9935

Knowing I am a member of TheRingFinders.com, a friend sent me a text message that a diamond wedding ring set had been lost at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort and Spa in San Antonio, Texas. Before even connecting with the Fort Worth couple that lost the rings, I contacted the Hyatt security to obtain permission for a search on their property. The Chief of Security already knew of the lost rings and granted permission for me to search for them. I then contacted Austin, the husband, who stated that while staying at the Hyatt on Saturday night they had attended a “Movie on the Lawn.” Sitting on a Hyatt supplied blanket and watching the outdoor movie, his wife had taken the ring set off to apply some hand lotion. She placed them on the blanket and then noticed some close friends walking past. They departed with the friends forgetting that the rings were left on the blanket. Austin and I discussed what could have happened to the rings. It was doubtful someone saw the rings on the blanket and took them because it was nighttime dark. They could of slid off the blanket when the staff retrieved it after the movie. They could have been rolled up in the blanket and tossed in the laundry. If the latter happened they were probably gone forever! Hoping they rolled off the blanket into the grass I contacted Hyatt Security to arrange a time to search. Security informed me that particular lawn is used every night for movies and during the day for other functions. They even said there had been a wedding on the lawn since the rings were lost. Uh Oh! What if someone had found the diamond ring set and not turned them in to Lost and Found! They suggested to be there about 9 AM the next day (Wednesday) to conduct the search.

After the 60 mile drive from Kerrville with my son (and metal detecting partner Shane), we arrived at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort and Spa.

At the guard shack we were directed to the security office for sign-in and escort to the particular lawn that the diamond set was lost at. They also verified by phone with Austin that I had his permission to search for the rings. Security led us through the expansive resort to the site of the loss – a beautifully manicured lawn with thick, lush grass.

Austin had sent me a Google map with markings of the area on the lawn they had sat to watch the movie. I set an imaginary grid line and proceeded to sweep the lawn with my Garrett AT Pro. Shane followed beside me using his Garrett Pro Pointer. It wasn’t very long when Shane exclaimed “Here’s one of the rings!” and shortly after he said “Here’s the other one!” He had found both of the rings with his Garrett Pro Pointer. They were virtually on top of each other but buried deep in the grass. After taking a couple of on-site pictures (no videos allowed) we were escorted back out.

.

I sent a text to Austin with the pictures of the found rings. Needless to say he was ecstatic and said that he had in mind a special way to give them back to his wife.

In less than 48 hours of my first hearing of the lost rings buried in grass, the rings were found and returned to the finger they belonged on. They even traveled halfway across Texas to Fort Worth on an airplane!

Austin did everything right to make this recovery successful. He provided a detailed map of the where the loss occurred, pictures of the rings before they were lost and contacted the management of the facility to gain access for a search. Most of all he put his faith in Shane and I to recover them!

Lost Diamond Ring in New Westminster, BC…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

Yesterday I got a call from a young man who needed my help to find his girlfriends 2 rings that she tossed out of his SUV while driving down the road. People are human, its true! They get mad and when they get mad in most cases rings go flying! I’ve had many calls over the years for these types of recoveries. I’d say most times I’m unsuccessful because of the locations I search are not metal detector friendly. “NEWS FLASH” (While writing this post the couple called me and said that the other ring was found in their home! She has no idea how it showed up there as she is certain she threw it out the window with the other ring…Makes me feel much better! I hate the thought of not finding what I’m looking for).

Well that makes it a happy ending! I have met so many nice people over the years doing what I do and I look forward to meeting many more!

 

Here’s the couple and her beautiful diamond ring.

18K Diamond Ring lost it snow, Found. Syracuse NY

from Syracuse (New York, United States)
Contact: 1-315-652-6996

I received a call from a lady who had lost her wedding band while shoveling snow off her sidewalk during the last snow storm that had hit us.  She stated that she was positive that she had the ring on when she went out to shovel, but discovered that the ring was gone about 1 hour after coming into the house afterwards.  She wondered if I could find it for her even though the snow was still on the ground. I suggested that if she waited until the snow melted, she would be very likely to see the ring just lying on top of the ground.  Because she lives in the city, she did not want to wait until then as many people walk down her city sidewalk and as the snow melted away, someone else would find it before her.  She knows her neighborhood, so I’m sure she would be right.

 

Because she works during the day and the urgency of finding the ring ASAP, we decided that it would be best if I searched the area during the day when she was at work.

 

I arrived just after 8:00 a.m., fired up my detector, and started sweeping along the edge of her sidewalk to the house and found nothing.  Then I started working along the street sidewalk and when the detector sang out and I started removing the snow in small batches being very careful and checking every batch with my pin pointer.  There about 1 foot off the sidewalk in one of the batches of snow was her ring.  This recovery was fast and easy, as now it was just 8:25 a.m.

 

I called her at work, told her the good news and package up her ring and it went out yesterday via USPS Priority Mail.  Another ring returned to the finger where it belongs.

 

Many people lose their rings during the winter as being cold, fingers will shrink and lose two ring sizes.  Then activity, like shoving show, throwing snow balls, etc and the ring is gone.  If you lose your ring during this time, be sure to call your local “Ring Finder”.
