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

Like most of my searches, it starts with a call or an email asking if I could help find something someone has lost. I have a series of questions I will ask in order to feel out the situation and the chances I will have for finding it. Sometimes it gets no further than the phone call, as some people explained that they had lost it in a department store or in a taxi, places I have no chance of finding what they lost.

After an email asking me if I could help find a lost wedding band I replied and asked if he could call me to discuss it further. I get the call and listen to a story on where he believes the ring was lost, he told me that he had searched for it as soon as he realized it fell off his finger but it was dark, with the flashlight on his phone he could not see the ring anywhere. He came back the next morning early and still could not find his ring.

I asked him about the area as I was not familiar with Cooper’s Park, it turned out to be along the seawall, the only area the ring could be for me to find it was in a very narrow strip of grass that separated the bike path and the runners/walkers path. Unfortunately, this was not good news, I asked if you could send me a picture of the location and he pulled one off of Google earth and I could see right away he had less than 5% chance of his ring being in the grass area.  I call these type of searches closure searches, I will come in and close off the only area I can search in order to give them closure that the ring is not there or by luck, it is there.

We set up a time to meet the next day at 9 AM, as soon as we met I knew this person, it was Jon Cryer from Two and a Half Men. I told him I really enjoyed his character on that show and he was very humble and thanked me for saying that. Such a nice person, as nice in real life as you would imagine him to be.

That being said the pressure was on, we discussed the search and Jon showed me around the area where he believed the ring had fallen. I told him there was approximately a 5% chance of finding his ring due to the fact it was all concrete apart from a little slice of grass that separated the bike path and the runner’s path. Together we walked around and eyeballed the ground around the area but I felt the chances were huge that someone had already found the ring the day before.

While Jon was walking around looking in the cracks and crevices of the walkway I started my search of the grass area, surprisingly with the odds against us and within five minutes, I had found Jon’s beautiful wedding band! I have to tell you, I was surprised to see his ring poking through the grass, got to surprise John and see how happy it made him.

Chris Turner- Metal Detecting Specialist… Call ASAP  or Text   778-838-3463

Well sometimes you find the ring quickly and other times it could take days. My last search was for a ring that was thrown out of anger and I spent 4 days and a total of 21 hours and no luck! I hate that result because it should be there? I believe I did my best but sometimes you just can’t find them for whatever unknown reason may be a squirrel, maybe a bird, maybe superhuman strength, and the ring went onto the road. Just to let you guys know I don’t always find everything I’m looking for, but I don’t give up easily.

Yesterday I got a phone call from a young man he said his friend lost his gold ring over his balcony down a bit of a ravine and no one could find it. He gave me the information and some details, then he connected me with his friend, the young man told me it was a custom-made gold ring with diamonds that he had for a very short time. I can sense his urgency and even though it was 5 PM rush-hour I jumped into my car and drove an hour and 30 minutes to Mission where he lived to help him find his lost ring.

When I arrived I met Terry and we discussed the search, I could see where he and his friends were searching with a metal detector but had no luck, it was just starting to get dark so I turned on my headlights and off to work I went. Strangely the search area was very similar to the last search that took me four days with no luck, uneven surfaces and lots of Ivy makes it extremely difficult.

After approximately 40 minutes and moving some logs and branches I received a very good signal and to my delight, I caught a glimpse of his beautiful custom gold ring! I was extremely excited and started packing up and climbing up the ravine, when I got to the top where I was putting down my equipment Terry drove up to the driveway, I didn’t know he had already gone and came back. When he got close I told him I needed to go get some more equipment because of the harsh terrain, then I held up the ring in front of him. I have the best job in the world I get to make people smile!

Terry was very happy and he was very kind with a generous reward for helping him find his recently made custom gold ring. Thank you, Terry, It was an honor to find that beautiful ring for you, and thank you for trusting me to search for it.

Lost Gold Chain, Kits Beach…Found!

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

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Call ASAP  Anytime 24/7   778-838-3463

After getting an early morning wake up call the day before at 4:15 AM to search for Lost Ring that I had found for a young man, then heading off to another site to look for a water main that only took a few minutes to find, I went home made a video, did a blog, spend some time with my wife, had some dinner and went to bed early. I was woken up to a phone call from a young man who lost a gold chain at Kits Beach, it took me a few seconds as I was a little out of sorts and not sure what time it was, he told me it was 10:45 pm. After chatting with Zach I knew it was important that I head out to the beach right away, arriving at the beach shortly before 12 AM I was greeted by 2 detectorists, Steve & Rick. We said our hellos and I asked them if anyone had found a gold chain? Steve said he had found one but he thought it was a junker, I took a look, hard to tell at night with a headlight, still not sure hope it was for him, but it wasn’t the one I was looking for.

I met Zach at the beach and he took me to the area he was sitting, unfortunately, he could not pinpoint the area exactly so I knew I had to put on a very slow methodical grid search. After an hour and a half, my headlight was getting weak so I went back to my car to get some batteries and change out detectors. I wanted to use my dual field to get rid of all the junk in the area and then hit it again with the equinox 800. Zach had brought a rake with him and asked if he could wake up the area that I had grid searched, I said yes for sure, the problem with raking an area to quickly is you might spread out the chain and it will become even harder to detect. When I got back with a brighter headlight and my other detector I was checking out the area Zak had raked and as I was looking I caught a glimpse of what I thought may have been gold.

I walked up to it bent down and pulled out his beautiful gold chain, it was nowhere near where Zach thought it would be, this is very common when people come back at night and try to find the spot they were at originally. I was so happy for him as I knew how much this meant to him. We both were very excited to see it and it took approximately an hour and 45 minutes to find this beautiful gold chain. Tonight was teamwork, Zach had most likely pulled up the chain with the rake to a point where I could see a little glint of gold. It was great to see how happy he was and to see his big smile!

White Rock Beach Lost & Found Ring

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

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Call ASAP  778-838-3463

I received a call to help a young lady find her ring that she lost a few nights ago at White Rock beach. We talked on the phone and she told me the story how her ring was lost, spending the night at the beach with friends having a few drinks, and just being young and having fun, she felt her ring slip off her finger while in the water at about waist deep. Polina then told me the story behind the ring and how much it meant to her to find it, I was up for the challenge.

This was a bit of a hike down to the beach as it’s not a place I normally search, Polina sent me pictures of the area and told me a friend of hers had searched a couple of times with the metal detector in hopes of finding her ring. ( Nice guy)!

Polina decided to meet me that day to show me the areas she was in and where she believed the ring was lost. The poor thing, she was pretty beat up from the coral on the rocks, she could barely walk, she was so cut up and scraped up. When we made it down to the beach I could tell it was going to be a very difficult search due to the size of the rocks in the area, the one good thing was Polina remembered a rock that was a pyramid shape where she believed the ring may have slipped off her finger.

With alcohol and the fact that it was dark out and the beach was lit by the moonlight, it was almost hard to believe she could remember seeing such a rock. When we got to the beach she pointed out a pyramid-shaped rock that she wanted me to check around and I did, but had no luck. I took a look around and started to do a grid search the best I could do considering the difficulty of the size of rocks in the area. After approximately two hours I found her beautiful ring! Guess what it was near, yes the pyramid-shaped rock… Amazing! Polina was correct in believing she had lost the ring by a pyramid-shaped rock… Fantastic memory! Great Smile & happy ending.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Polina was walking down the beach quite a ways away when I found the ring, I decided I was going to fake her out and tell her my batteries were dead in my metal detector and I had to go to my car… That’s when I surprised her with the ring!

How to find a lost diamond stud earring…

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

Lost your wedding ring or family heirloom… Don’t wait till it’s too late call ASAP Your 2nd chance to find what you thought was lost forever! 778-838-3463

I got a call the other day in regards to searching and hopefully finding a lost diamond stud earring in a back yard. When I get these calls they make me nervous because there is so very little gold holding the diamond and that makes it very difficult to locate these targets. It was a nice sunny day and I headed out to the location where I met the young man and his family. He showed me the area where he believed the earring came off his ear and I started my search…Note this was a tough search because of a few factors. Firstly there was a high-power electrical lines in the back yard and that drives a detector bonkers. Secondly there was a lot of target signals making it difficult to zero in on the small target. Thirdly the whole family was watching…Under pressure!  I used two detectors for this search and the Equinox 800 gave me a VDI number of 1-3 the only problem was the amount of targets and if it was sitting beside a higher number it would be hard to find. After around 5 hours I packed it up, but I didn’t give up because he was sure it was lost in the yard.

I went back the next day but not before I did a pit stop at SMI Electronics where I went and bought another Garrett Carrot/pin pointer as my old one was starting to give up/crap out. I thought about how I would do the grid search the next day and my gut told me to use the pin pointer and grid search the area he felt the earring come off…I had success within 5 minutes of the search…Luck was on my side! It always makes me feel good to find what I’m looking for and to see the smiles…This picture was the young man’s auntie as he was back in school today.

Lost Ring 3rd Beach Stanley Park…Found

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

I’m finally back to work after extended time off for a broken elbow, I finished a long day in downtown Vancouver and headed home, an hour drive away. I just parked the car at home, it’s 10:20 pm and the phone rings… A  young lady on the other end said are you the ring finder guy ? I said yes I am,  she went on to tell me that her very good friend lost a very sentimental gold ring at third beach in Stanley Park…Only 10 minutes away from where I was just working. I jumped back in my car and headed back to Vancouver.

I arrived just before 11:30 and met both ladies in the dark and they showed me the area the ring was lost. It only took about 6 minutes to find her ring, it was a very cool and different style of ring that was custom made. It gave me an unusual target signal and I was expecting that after she described the ring to me before I started the search.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She was one very happy young lady when she got her ring back! I love my job!

Lost Ring in Coquitlam River…Found.

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

A concerned mother called me yesterday and told me that her son lost a silver ring that was given to him by his late Uncle, the mothers brother. She said the ring was lost in the river and the current was pretty strong. These can turn out to be a very difficult search as the bottom of the river is rocky not sandy. That means the ring could bounce along with the current and travel down stream, so I started at the top where it was lost and did a test drop with a sliver ring to see if I could find that one. The first drop I could see that it settled behind a rock.

I started my search where the young man said the ring had fallen into the water but no luck. I worked my way down stream 3 or 4 times, up & down, but no luck. I asked the young man again if he could show me where he thought the ring fell into the water, he asked his friend and they were pretty sure of the location.

Because I worked that area 4 times I decided to go up stream a little and bang! about 8 yards up from the spot they said it fell in I found his ring!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love video taping and surprising people with their ring and for some reason when I got home I lost the footage of his reaction from my phone…

How to find a lost ring in the sand, Spanish Banks Beach… Vancouver, BC.

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

Summer is warming up and more calls are coming in…This call was from a young man who said that his friend lost a large gold ring while throwing a foot ball. These searches are usually 100% successful because they know that the ring came off while throwing the ball.

I told them to relax and I will find the ring, it was almost  a 1 1/2 hour drive to get there, so I hit the road right away.

When I arrived and met the party I was introduced to the young man who lost what I found out was his wedding band, it was a huge one by the sounds of it. As I was getting ready to do the search and after asking my typical questions, I noticed there was a lot of eyes on me!  I knew the pressure was on! But not to worry as I also knew it was a matter of time before I find the ring. I knew I would find it as sand eats up gold, but the gold can’t hide from me and my detector!

30 seconds into the search I received a great signal on my detector and BINGO! I had his huge gold ring in my scoop. I loved the reaction of everyone on the beach as they cheered for the young man!

As always… I love the Smiles!

Metal Detector Rental White Rock BC

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

Most people will rent or buy a metal detector to find their lost ring. The only thing is if you’ve never used one you will have a slim chance in finding your ring. The members and myself from TheRingFinders.com have many years of experience and the know how…This search today didn’t need the use of the detector…How many people who would have rented a detector would have found this ring? One thing we all do is think out of the box. Lynn was shaking a towel over her balcony when her 2 rings flew off her finger…

She found one ring in the small rocks very quickly. No need for a metal detector for that ring…But where did the second ring go? Maybe into the garden/rhododendron bushes but it would have been an easy eye ball search. I asked Lynn if there was a chance the ring could have slipped off finger in the house? She question herself and went inside to look. I stood there and thought… one ring fell on the rocks and why not the second ring?

Just then I notice a dip alongside of the foundation of the house, the rocks  sunk into the ground in a very small area so I took a knee and had a look and BINGO there was the ring! I was so happy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was able to surprise Lynn, I have the greatest job in the world! I get to make people smile!

Lost Gold Wedding Band in Snow/Vancouver,BC…Found!

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

While sledding at a Vancouver park with his daughter, Chris lost his white gold wedding band. When I met Chris he was very certain that it was lost at the park and he even had a video of him sledding, at one point he was shaking his hands in the video and he felt that was the moment the ring must have come off. Watching the video, I too felt the same way as Chris did as he said the ring was very loose, shaking your hands like that would make the ring come off for sure.

After Chris showed me the area, he went to work, I started my search at the top of the hill. I worked my way grid searching north/south and after 30 minutes I found his 19k white gold wedding band. I feel just as happy as the person I find it for does…Very Happy!
