Quick Response Jags A Lost Gold Wedding Ring, North Cottesloe Beach, Perth, Australia.

from Perth (Australia)
Contact: 0469880955.

This search began with a call from Chris who’d lost his wedding ring somewhere on the beach or in the water whilst fishing with two friends from North Cottesloe Beach.  One of his friends had seen his wedding ring still on his finger a few hours later but by about 2pm he noticed it was missing. He and his friends had been searching for a while with no success when he spoke to a friend who did a google search for metal detecting services in Western Australia where he found ‘theringfinders’ directory and through the directory my local website www.RingRescues.com.au. Chris called me about 3 pm to ask if I could find his ‘precious’ for him. Thats what I do so as they were still at the location I hopped in the ute and headed off to the rescue..

About an hour later Chris met me in the carpark and led me down to his friends on the beach. I asked Chris to walk me around the various places he’d been fishing from and even established the area he’d walked to to answer a call of nature! From that information I prioritised 3 areas to search first and marked them out with flags. I was anticipating a lot of junk and knowing the approximate weight and composition of the ring I decided for that reason to use my trusty Garrett AT-PRO metal detector which would allow me to leave most targets in situ. After checking them all and not finding Chris’s ring I was now looking at having to fill in a large area of beach between the three areas. I hadnt found as much junk as I thought I might so I switched to my more powerful Whites Surfmaster Detector which I can swing even faster than the PRO allowing me to cover more ground in quicker time and performs much better on the wet sand and in the water if I had to go in! It was also possible the ring had been ‘cast’ into the ocean but I was trying not to think about that. Anyway that possibility was still at the bottom of the list, probability wise.

Chris’s precious..

I began to search away from the area he and his friends had made thier ‘fishing operations base’, the first place I had searched and recovered various junk, a few coins and one of THEIR fishing lures! A few minutes later bingo! I looked up to find that Chris was not looking at me at the time which is unusual as most people are alerted that I’ve found something when my pinpointer starts screaming!

Smiling again!

As I was a fair distance from him he did not realise for a moment and until he did I witnessed the range of facial expressions one goes through as you transition from unsure to realisation to shock and finally joy! Now look at that smile and you may guess how rewarding for me that moment was.

Cheers Chris!

 

 

The Stuff Of Legends! Gold Wedding Ring Found @ Cottesloe Beach, Perth, Western Australia

The Stuff of Legends – Cottesloe Beach, April 2, 2018.

Last week, I flew to Perth to visit my brother Sean who I hadn’t seen in ten years.  It was going to be an epic catch up and I was hoping I would get the chance to see him in action on a ring find – a new talent he had developed since we last saw each other.  I was fascinated with the whole process, and eager to share in what I was convinced would be a wicked feel good factor, reuniting someone with their lost ring.

On our last afternoon, we were chilling out at home before heading to the airport, when Sean took a call from a distressed woman who had just lost her wedding band running out of the surf at Cottesloe beach. It had simply slipped off as she ran up the beach, and was flung into the sand –  somewhere… Lucky for her the Cottesloe lifeguards told her she could find Sean’s contact details on The Ring Finders website – a glimmer of hope in an otherwise hopeless situation.

Sean went from woah to go in an instant, and we were on the road bound for Cottesloe – the importance of getting on to a search quickly was not lost on me – so many factors that could impact your chances of ever finding your lost jewellery – the weather, the sea conditions, whether

Sean and Angie discussing the search area.

you can accurately pinpoint an area in which it was lost, and of course the risk of someone else finding it, or worse, the evening  sand sieve machine chewing it up and spitting it into the unknown…

We arrived and met Angie above the beach. She took us down to where she thought she had lost her ring.  In an excellent move that would prove pivotal to the outcome, she and her friends had placed coffee cups in the sand to mark the points between which she thought the ring had been lost. Sean then quizzed Angie on the circumstances surrounding her loss, and clarified details before commencing his search.

Angie, her friends and I watched as Sean methodically covered the area.  His technique was a fascinating ‘shuffle’ that was systematic and almost dance-like.  I was surprised at the speed he was moving, as I thought it would be much slower.  Every minute or so, Sean would pause, hovering his detector back and forth, testing for the right signal and honing in on a target.  Sometimes he would move on, but other times, he would drop to his knees and used a pinpointer that beeped wildly as he felt round the spot.  Our hearts would leap to our throats every time  – and they would sink again as he retrieved a piece of lead, a coin, or some other debris left behind on the beach.

As he approached the second and last coffee cup at the far end of the area Angie had indicated, we began to resign ourselves to the possibility that the ring was lost for good.  Angie had been married 22 years, and this would be devastating – sure a gold band can be replaced, but not the fact that for 22 years it had been on her finger and with her every step.  A new one just wouldn’t be the same.

Angie’s precious… rescued!

about 10 minutes into the search, Sean once again dropped to his knees in the sand as he followed a target. A moment later, he lifted his hand in the air and exclaimed “yeaaaaah – woohoo”. Angie and her friends were so excited, squealing with delight as

Thanks to life gaurds giving Angie my no..

Angie rushed over to Sean and threw her arms around him.  “Oh My God, What a Legend!!!  Thank you so much!!” she exclaimed over and over. 

There it was, the feel good factor.  This is why Sean does this, right there, that moment.

After thanking the lifeguards for connecting them, Sean and Angie took a few pictures before we headed to the pub across the road for a celebratory drink before I departed for the airport on a high.  What a way to round off an awesome week!

LOST ENGAGEMENT RING IN BREAUX BRIDGE, LA. – FOUND

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

After Brennon and Alyssa rode their 4 wheeler along the muddy trails, they decided to call it a day. They parked at the area used to wash off the four wheelers and themselves. While washing her hands with a hose, Alyssa felt her engagement ring slip off her finger. They and other riders hunted for it from 8 PM till midnight with no success. The next morning they returned with a newly purchased metal detector to continue the hunt. After finding only foil, pennies and pop tops, Brennon looked at a YouTube video for hunting hints. He saw a “The Ring Finders” decal on a car in the video and went to our website. We got the call from Brennon on Sunday morning. Carrie and I were able to load our equipment and be on site in 1 ½ hours. The hunt area was relatively small but had quite a lot of trash. It was hard bottom with dead matted grass covered by 2 to 4 inches of mud. After 20 minutes of getting everything, including us, covered in mud, Carrie found the ring, tangled in the grass, under the mud. After some happy tears and pictures (and washing off mud from us and our equipment) we were heading home feeling great after reuniting Alyssa with her beautiful ring.

Thank you for your generous reward. Best wishes for a long and happy life together.

 

Keys found in Chula Vista

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Angela called me to help find her lost keys. It was dark, she and her husband were outside his car in the parking lot where they lived. Angela attempted to throw her keys over to top of the car to her husband on the other side. The keys didn’t make it! They hit the top of the car and bounced somewhere. They searched the parking lot, sidewalk, and landscaping the best they could in the dark using a flashlight, but, didn’t have any luck. They searched again the next day, even cleaning out dead leaves and branches from the bushes along the sidewalk. Still no luck. Next in the process was to buy a metal detector and try again. They had “fun” removing everything imaginable from the ground cover and bushes, but, the keys just wouldn’t speak up. Eventually, they heard about The Ring Finders and gave me a call.

I met Angela at the parking lot around noon and got the low down on how the keys were lost. I started by searching all the ground area in and around the bushes and all along the sidewalk. No luck. I ran the coil over the surface of the bushes and even in the overhanging tree branches, but, still nothing. Next, I started at one end and started shaking all the bushes as hard as I dared, hoping to hear the tinkle of keys or to hopefully convince the bushes to let go of them. We made it all the way to the other end without success, but, while walking back toward where we started Angela looked down and spied them right under the corner of one of the bushes. Yes! Don’t know how we missed them at the time we were at that bush, but, hey, they’re now back where they belong, so, that’s what counts. A very happy Angela called her husband with the good news and both gratefully thanked me. A pleasure to meet you Angela and thank you for the reward.

Contact: 1-780-497-2118

Doug called me yesterday afternoon asking if I could help him find his wife’s  engagement ring which he lost while he was walking with his children yesterday morning, while visiting at a friends house, I told Doug I could meet him within the hour.

When I arrive at the location, Doug told me he had walk roughly a Block and a half with his children and his dog. I asked Doug where did he have the ring. He told me it was on his finger for safe keeping, he notice the ring was missing when he got back to the house, you see his wife had entrusted him with her ring while she was attending a tournament in the city,

I asked Doug if he had done anything out of the ordinary while on his walk he told me that he was throwing snow balls at the back of the house, I told him we will start at that location which was a logical place to start when we got on the walkway, Doug said the walkway had been cleared of snow since he was last there.

Doug told me that he had spent a couple of hours walking up and down the walkway looking for the ring with no luck.
After about 20 minute searching the area where Doug was throwing snowballs I found the ring on the other side of the walkway Doug was very happy to have the ring back in his possession.

Thank you Doug for allowing me to locate your wife’s lost ring.

I received a voicemail from Kaci. She had stated her wedding ring flew off her hand tossing candy from her car in her driveway while holding her young child. She said she had lost it on 10-30-18. The next day is when she called me. I said I can come right after work so I came home grabbed my gear and headed her way a 20 minute drive. I searched for awhile with no luck. I searched the yard three times before she headed to work. I said it’s not in the yard. She had some bushes right by the car and porch so I got on my knees and found a pull tab at the base of the bushes. Just as her husband was home he headed for the porch I heard the sweet sound from my pinpointer… I said to him does her ring look like this he said no way I said yup I got it. Now the fun began I said we have to go surprise her. I gathered a bunch of small metal from my truck and went to see KACI. We got there and I told her it’s not in your yard or your car. I showed her all the stuff I found in her yard with the ring hidden beneath the junk. She started moving stuff around in my hand and saw her ring underneath.. Her reaction was priceless.. Thank for getting ahold of me KACI..

Engagement ring lost in Lincoln park WA, Found!!!

from Spokane (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-509-263-8995

Heather went for a walk this morning on an paved path through a fall covered forest. Along the way the hill she was climbing leveled out and Heather took a break. After pulling off the gloves on her hands, Heather walked up the rest of the hill. Near the top of said hill, Heather’s heart sank. Because with a quick glance at her left hand, she saw that the engagement ring she had been wearing for a month was gone. So the search began. In the pine needles, at home by the sink and then back on the path where she was walking. After no luck, Heather called her fiancée Jack and told him the bad news. Being the ever persistence problem solver, Jack began searching from his job in California. Jack found the ring finders and Heather called me. It was like it was meant to be, I was on my way up near that park. My wife was able to bring me my metal detector and I was able to start searching soon after the ring was lost. All that needed to happen now was to find the missing ring. But it wasn’t near where Heather took off her gloves, or where she stopped and turned around, or on the other side of the path. So I began to walk and walk we did. About 100 yards from where the gloves came off sat Heather’s ring, on the asphalt path in plain sight. I counted about six people that passed us while we were searching for the lost ring, and all of them either walked over the ring or near it. I told Heather at the beginning of the searching, after the ring comes off the hand, its hard to say where it might end up, and as for Heather’s ring I’m so glad it stayed where it fell.

Matching Lost Silver Wedding Ring Recovered in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA 94117

from San Francisco (California, United States)
Contact: 1-415-895-0334

Michael was reading on his favorite bench in the Fuschia Dell area of Golden Gate Park when an annoying fly began buzzing him. After swatting at the fly with his left hand, he realized his wedding ring had flown off into the grass around his bench.

Michael searched and searched the area for his ring but could not find it. He and his partner returned the next day, but were again unsuccessful in locating the ring.

You might think a silver wedding band is not too expensive and could be easily replaced. But this heavy silver ring was part of a matching pair of custom wedding bands created over 30 years ago!

A friend of theirs found THE RING FINDERS on the Internet and recommended me to the guys. I was able to get out the next evening, and after 40 minutes searching the broad landing zone to the left of Michael’s bench, I finally located his beautiful oak leaf cluster silver ring, deep in the green grass, right in front of his favorite bench.

 

Beautiful matching oak leaf designs, together again!
