Lake,Alcohol & the Ring Flies into the Lake Grapevine, Texas
We got a call from a really guy named Jordan. He let us know that the previous Saturday while on a family day at the lake. Actually Jordan’s birthday. A mistake that sometimes happens when alcohol is involved, tempers flaired and his sweetheart in a moment of regret took off her ring and just tossed it in the lake. They searched for over an hour even though the water was only 2-4 ft deep. We set a time to meet Jordan the next day at Lake Lewisville. Jordan brought his wonderful 24 ft Pontoon boat, he took on a short ride to the Island in the middle of the lake where he and his family liked to beach their pontoon and spend the day just floating in the lake. Upon arrival I jumped in and began search asking Jordan where his sweetheart was sitting and what direction she threw the ring. We always ask if the person who threw the ring is athletic or not because that can make difference how far the ring may have gone, I made several passes and then Ellen my wife hopped in the water and began to search as well. The both use Garrett ATPro’s and waterproof Garret Pro-Pointers. Ellen wasn’t in the wate 5 minutes when she called my name, I looked and could tell from the look on her face she had found the beautiful ring. I walked over and sure enough, the beautiful White Gold Diamond Ring sat beautifully in her scoop. Jordan heard us talking and was shocked that Ellen had found the ring in less than 10 minutes. After some congratulations and photos we had a wonderful boat ride back to the marina.
Three Lost Gold Wedding Rings in Orchard Prairie Spokane WA ….FOUND!!!
Last week,Sue was sitting on her porch step talking to to her landscaper during the fading hours of daylight. As Sue was talking she noticed the diamond on her wedding rings was flipped downward. She quickly flicked the rings with her thumb to adjust their position. As her thumb snapped forward her three rings went flying. Quickly exclaiming “I lost my rings” to the landscaper, the daylight faded to black. A search for the rings that night was useless. The next morning a search began and ended with no luck. So Sue reached out to her community. The neighbors, her church, and the little four year old boy across the street were all praying for the ring to be found. The Minister from Sue’s church even came over to look. He saw an over grown bush right beside where Sue sat. Thinking the ring might be in there, he asked when she last cleaned out the leaves in the planter box? Little did he know that when he began to tend to the over grown mess he would remove the rings from its hiding place. As he worked with his hands cutting and cleaning up the leaves and twigs he had picked up Sue’s rings. Now from there the minister took the five gallon bucket of trimmings and walked to the backyard . He placed the bucket under a covered carport and then left. So for a week that bucket sat there untouched. Sue was devastated and distraught. She saw the rings come off and disappear. How could she not see the rings in the grass she thought. Sue had the landscaper cut the grass really short and then used a shopvac to try and pull the rings from where she thought they were hidden in the grass. Now completely stumped Sue turned to the internet. Her daughter told her to buy a metal detector so Sue typed in ring metal detectors . Instead of finding a metal detector to buy she found The Ring Finders. I hadn’t begun my days work yet when Sue called me. We talked and I told her I would be right over. I heard Sue’s story and began my search. The whole front yard, the planter boxes, under the porch, in the juniper bushes and down the front walk was where I searched with no ring found. I knew the minister had cleaned up a bush, so I asked where he put the clippings. So Sue and I headed to the backyard to the five gallon bucket. I thought for sure I would see her ring in that bucket. However I didn’t see her ring when I searched, not even in a trailer where more clippings had been tossed. Now I knew that a bagged lawn mower had been used on her lawn so as I walked past Sue talking to her about the landscaper my eyes saw a small shape in the gravel. So I asked Sue what is that? And then again I asked what is that Sue? I circled the rings and then started jumping up and down as I saw the diamond. Sue’s rings had been found. Whether it fell out of the bottom of the bucket or an act of God placed the rings in the gravel. The rings were found. We hugged a bunch, celebrating all the answered prayers and Sue thanked God and me for finding the rings. See, the three rings Sue had lost were on her hand for 58 years. When her husband Gaylon passed away 10 years ago his ring was placed behind hers and soldered together. So finding those three rings brought back the memories of her late husband and the feeling of their love for one another.
LOST FAMILY CREST RING RECOVERED ON CAPE COD
Labor Day 2022, I was enjoying a walk with my wife and my Dog, and I received a call from a Man named Jake. Jake had lost his family crest Gold ring which has been on his finger for 30 plus years and needed my help in locating it, The only problem was he did not know where he lost the ring. As I was walking with my wife Jake explained the night before he was on a boat with his wife and family and had gone to a dockside restaurant , had a wonderful time and returned to a mooring in the bay as night was falling. upon arrival, he disembarked the craft and proceeded to wade some 300 or so feet to the shore through the water with what they had brought with them and placed everything on the beach, after everything was finalized he took their belongings and brought them up the associations beach stairs and entered his vehicle and drove to the house a short distance away only to realize his ring , which he has never taken off in over 30 years, was missing. He searched everywhere, the home , the yard, the beach, even the boat but the ring was nowhere to be found. He had no idea where the ring could be but needed help in finding it. I told Jake that I would be more than happy to meet him down at the beach after my walk and we could talk about a game plan on finding his ring. I thought to myself this is going to be tough, it could be anywhere from the beach to the restaurant. Our walk was finished and I met Jake at the association beach where we went over all the details, at this point Jake had searched the boat again and had no luck in finding his ring. There was a strong possibility the ring might have been lost at the restaurant or on the way back to the mooring, or in the water surrounding the boat to the beach 300 feet away. I assured Jake that I would search for his ring to the best of my ability, but the ring may not be found because of the uncertainty of where it may have been lost. We did have one clue about the ring, a picture was produced that showed he had the ring on, on the boat on the way to the restaurant. This did tell us it was not lost beforehand.
I readied myself with the equinox 800 and the 15″ coil and decided our best bet would be to start around the mooring where the boat was moored. Jake joined me throughout this part of the search. Luckily in this bay the water levels are not high and it was low tide so the water was waist deep. The search started . Working a grid around the boat I found nothing so I decided to continue moving a parallel search with the shore toward the beach, I did this for an hour without success . I decided the tide was coming in and I wanted to work the beach a little as daylight was burning, so I detected a path to the shore and worked the beach area where he was confident he was during the departure from the boat. Doing a grid search I was unable to find the ring in the area, I also searched several passes to the stairs that he used to exit the beach, still no results. As it was getting late I decided to go to the house and search the yard, possibly the ring slipped off afterwards. I searched the yard with still no results. At this point there was a vast area of the bay that had not been searched and seemed the only hope to find the ring, but the tide was coming in and I decided I would return on Tuesday before low tide and continue the search then.
The following days the tide was going out I returned, we had overcast skies and rain, but I had to search the area that Jake had traversed to be sure the ring was or was not there. I started my grid and for 2 hours did not find the ring, as I approached the shoreline I had one more pass until I was up on the beach, and I received a solid 18 on the equinox VDI. One scoop in the water and up came the gold ring with the family crest presenting itself to me as I looked at it in the scoop. What a Relief. I had Jakes ring and I went back to my car and texted him a picture of his ring, I told in the text “interesting what you find when you look” within the same minute I received a return text which I can only explain as utter disbelief! I had found his ring and I made arrangements to meet up with him to return it to him shortly after as he was not in the area at the moment.
The recoveries where people are unsure of where they lost the item, and have a vast area of travel in between the last time they have seen the item do not always turn out positive, vast amounts of time are spent which in some cases are in vain because there is no definite area to focus on. This search had a very positive outcome and I was very happy to reunite Jake with his ring. Another success story for the ring finders, and another person smiling ear to ear with relief that that which was lost was now found and in its rightful place, with its owner. Thank you for calling me Jake. It was a pleasure to help you.
Second time around – Aggie Ring recovered from the Guadalupe River again!
Almost two years ago my son, Shane, and I recovered an Aggie ring from the Guadalupe River for Rick. Well, Rick called today and said he lost his ring again in the Guadalupe, different place this time. Rick said he marked about where he lost it and it was in shoulder deep water. Uh, Huh! Shane and I had to swim across to the buoy and stand tip toe on rocks. My mouth was subsurface and my nose was just in the air! About 15 minutes of searching and I heard the tone in my AT Pro, Shane dove down and came up with the ring on this finger. Rick was really glad and lucky to have his ring back on his finger again!
Atlantic Beach: Newlywed’s Gold Wedding Band Lost In The Ocean Found
Joe and his wife of two months were spending a few days with family and went swimming in the ocean. Sitting on the beach with his wife, she asked him where is your ring? It was then the shock of the loss started. Joe did some research and found The Ring Finders and contacted me later that day. He admitted, and I could tell, both him and his wife were very upset. Joe said he was swimming in chest to shoulder deep water. I informed him that tomorrow morning’s conditions would be best to perform a water recovery search and we agreed to meet at 6 a.m.
Less than 1 hour later Joe was able to grab his gold wedding band out of my sand scoop. His wife was instantly in tears. It is such a great feeling to be able to return property that holds so much value to others!
Gold Pendent Lost in Nashville-Found!
Brooke contacted me even though she was in Nashville and I was in Chattanooga. There are two ring finders in the Nashville area, but neither of them were available. I agreed to go, even though it was about a two-and-a-half-hour drive for me. She had lost a gold pendant while she was competing in a charity event at a local golf course. The pendent was from her late grandfather, so it had a lot of sentimental value. I left early enough from the Chattanooga area to get there by 6:00AM so we could get started before the course opened. That event was a sack race. They were not on the fairways, but in the grass off to the side. I’m not familiar with the course layout, but I think it was off to the side of tee box #10 where they had the sack race. Brooke had previously gotten permission from the course manager. The first thing I did was scan the edges of the cart paths, and it was not there, except for a square pull-tab. Yep, those are everywhere we go. Fortunately, someone had taken a video clip of the sack race, and I could clearly see she had the pendent on during the race. But more importantly, I could use that to hone in on where the race took place. From the viewpoint of the video there were several small trees on the left background. In the left foreground there was a grassy hill that had been scalped on the top by the mowers. On the right very edge of the screen I saw a homeowner’s metal fence that was bordering his back yard. So, using those landmarks I was able to pinpoint exactly where the sack race took place. Most of the grass there was short enough to see the pendent if you walked close to it. Some of the grass was tall enough to hide an object that small, so that’s where I focused my detecting first. While I was scanning the taller grass, Brooke asked if there was anything she could do. I said most of this grass is short enough that you could most likely see it if you walked right over it. So, knowing exactly where the race had taken place, I had started scanning around halfway to the finish line where the taller grass was, and Brooke started walking ahead of me near the finish line where the shorter grass was. After around twenty minutes or so, I saw Brooke lean over and pick something up, she said, “I found it!” It was visible if you walked right over it, so someone else could have seen it before we got there. Fortunately, it was still there.
Lost Diamond Ring, Wildwood, New Jersey, RECOVERED!
Lost Ring, Cape May, New Jersey, RECOVERED!
I was tagged in a post in a few local groups last evening regarding someone looking for assistance with recovering a lost ring on the beach in Cape May. I messaged Emily whom explained that her father lost his ring, at some point, on Grant St beach earlier in the day. Emily passed me onto her mother whom reached out this morning. After gathering some details we agreed on a time to meet. Took the short ride, from home, over and met up with the entire family. They weren’t exactly sure when or how the ring came to be lost but they were fairly sure as to where they had been sitting. I turned on my detector and literally had the ring in the first sweep, less than 3 minutes. Another happy family! #lostringandjewelryrecoveryservice, #capemaynj, #jerseyshore, #weddingrings, #lostring, #capemaycounty, #lostandfound, #CoolCapeMay, #coolercapemay, #theringfindersnj, #theringfindersnewjersey, #jerseyshore, #capemaynewjersey
