I received an email from a gentleman requesting help in locating an engagement ring and wedding ring belonging to his wife that had been lost in the front yard of their residence. The gentleman stated that his wife had lost the rings in their front yard while she was mowing the grass with a push mower and after putting on sun screen. I arrived at the private residence, interviewed the gentleman and then began my search of the front yard. After about fifteen minutes of searching I was able to locate the wedding band with no problem. After searching the rest of the front yard for about two hours the engagement ring refused to be found.
Lost Gold Diamond Man’s Wedding Ring in Pataskala, OH “FOUND”.
I received a call from a guy that lost his first wedding ring in his backyard last summer. His family tradition is giving his wedding ring to his son, that is getting married later this year. If I was not able to find the wedding ring then he would have to give his son his current wedding ring.
Well about half way though the back yard, I found the ring. The diamond and gold wedding ring shine in the sun as his wife came outside with joy to see the lost ring. Him and his wife were very happy to see the ring again. And their son will be also.
Lost Gold Man’s Wedding Ring in Powell, OH “FOUND”.
I received an email from a guy that lost his gold wedding ring while helping with his young daughters softball game. He played pitcher, catcher and second baseman. Between each inning he took off is baseball mitt. After the game while at dinner, he noticed that his gold wedding ring was no longer on his finger.
He went back to the baseball diamond to look for his ring but no luck. After he got home and read the Columbus Dispatch, he saw my news article. Then he emailed me about his lost ring at about 10 pm at night.
By the next morning I was heading to meet him to look for the ring. I had a two hour window to find the ring before he had to leave for a couple of days. Since other games would have been played there before he would return someone else could have found it. Looking for an hour and a half and asking many questions as to where he was during the game the ring was found covered up by the dirt.
He was very glad to have his ring back since he just celebrated his 10 year wedding anniversary.
Hello from Don & Ellen Wilson in Dallas, Texas. We got a call today from Mrs Bundy, her 8yr old daughter, Briar, had lost her Gold Signet Ring at the playground of the local Country Club. We met at the Country Club and began searching the area where the daughter said she saw the ring fly off her hand. She was playing Queen of the World by standing on top of a picnic table and threw her arm out like she was Queen. The ring came off of her hand and was lost.
After 3 weeks of searching by Briar, her parents, other family members and the Country Club grounds & Management staff everyone had given the ring up for lost. Mrs Bundy’s sister in New York read an article about “The Ring Finders” and told Mrs. Bundy she should check the website and see if there was a “Ring Finder in the Dallas area” She did and found my wife and I.
After about an hour of searching we were about to call it quits when I asked the little girl to get back up on the picnic table and re-inact the event. She did, then my wife said “no wait, do it again and close your eyes and do it the exact same way”. Briar did as we requested and did it completely different than she had previously showed us. This time I saw that it was possible the ring may have flown in a different area of grass. We began to detect this area and in 5 minutes the ring showed itself. I called the little girl and her mother over and asked, ‘is this your ring’? They were so excited and so grateful.
Another great day in the life of “The Ring Finders in Dallas,Tx”
We received a panic call from a young man about 8pm one night saying that his girlfriend had lost the locket and chain he had given her somewhere in his front yard. He wanted us come that night but we were tied up and promised to come early the next morning. We arrived around 7am and he explained that he and his girlfriend had been playing around in the front yard when the incident happened. She had placed the item in the pocket of her hoodie prior to playing around. She was extremely upset with him and he was really upset that he couldn’t find it himself.
We got out our detectors and began scanning and in just 5 minutes or so we got a HIT. We found the locket and chain. He was shocked and happy and could not thank us enough.
What a thrill to have another successful hunt for “The Ring Finder”.
Today we received a call from a client in Saratoga, a small Bay Area town near Los Gatos and Cupertino. She had just lost a beautiful handmade gold ring from India, while pruning a large jasmine bush in her front yard. She had searched for a metal detector expert on the web, and found us.
When we arrived, we found that the jasmine bush was indeed large-it was a sphere nearly six feet in diameter, and very dense. Our detectors can only scan to a maximum of 8-12 inches deep, so we were a bit worried. First we scanned the entire surface of the bush and an area in the ground around it, and also poked our detectors into the bush as far as they would go. Then our client told us we could easily untie the bush from its pole supports and flip the whole thing over. Once we did this, we scanned the whole bush again without any luck.
Then we scanned the area directly beneath the jasmine, around the area where the stems emerged from the ground. This area had been completely covered by the bush when we arrived. Bingo! Buried in about an inch of leaves and debris, we found the ring, and it was as beautiful as the client had described. The top of the ring featured a carved image of Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth. Not a very common ring in the Bay Area!
If you lose a ring in your back yard, or in bushes or planters, try not to disturb the area while you are searching-step gently! You want to avoid causing your lost item to move very far from it’s resting place. In this case, the ring was directly underneath the jasmine bush, but we’ve recovered items thirty feet or more from where they were lost. They were accidentally kicked there by overly enthusiastic searchers. Call us quickly and we’ll find it for you!
Its been a while and yesterday afternoon I was out doing some Christmas shopping with my brother who is from California when I received a call from a young lady. She said that her father had lost his ring. She ask me a few questions and said that her dad would give me a call.
I got the call minutes later and the man went on to tell me that he had lost 4 huge rings at his job site, they had dropped out of his pocket because the zipper broke. You could image how upsetting that would be as he wasn’t sure where they had fell out…I was excited to get out there and search for his rings but I had Christmas shopping to do so I rushed around and got it done and shot out to Maple Ridge to help find the rings.
I got to the job site at 5:30 pm and we talked about the possibilities of where he thought the rings could be, he told me that he spent 6 hours the day before searching and sifting the dirt for the rings and 4 hours the next day. He called his daughter and asked her to search the internet to see if there was anyone out there with a metal detector that could help… She found ”The Ring Finders”
I turned on my trusted Whites XLT and it was going crazy with the power line directly above me. I quickly went back to my truck and took out my new Whites V3i and set up the frequency and was able to program the detector to cancel out about 80% of the interference from the power lines above me.
After about 30 minutes the young man jumped into his backhoe and started to level out a big pile of sand so I could check it out and while he was doing that I went to another area where I got a good signal and started to dig…
What a sight to see when this came out of the dirt! We were very excited and hopeful that the rest would be close bye…
Only a yard away from the first ring…I knew the rest would show up close bye…
These were very large and heavy rings!
This was the biggest ring and what a great feeling to find all 4 rings, he said Christmas came early for him! I have to say that was fun! I think I found more gold then those guys from that reality show called Alaska ”Gold Rush”
Thanks for the kind reward!
I Love my Job!
Lost something? Call me ASAP! I’ll help you find it.
I saw a posting on www.Craigslist.com Lost and Found section looking for help in locating a lost ring. Brian had been spectating the Ironman race the past weekend. After the race, he found a wooded area off of the route to change into some shorts. He then walked back to the race route, which ran directly past a rural house. Brian picked a spot in front of a driveway and encouraged others still running the race. Suddenly, Brian realized his ring was missing. He retraced his steps back to the wooded area, searching for his ring along the way. He did not have any luck. He wasn’t sure if he lost it while changing in the woods, or while watching the race. It was getting dark, so Brian grabbed a flashlight and continued hunting for his ring. He searched for awhile longer, but did not find anything. Brian was so mad at himself for losing his ring. To top it all off, he was from Illinois and had to return home the next day. This is when Brian posted an ad on Craigslist hoping someone else had found it while watching the race.
I responded to the ad offering to help. Robyn, Brian’s wife, replied back with a great image of a Google Map snapshot, including the area Brian was in circled in red. She indicated the main area to search was the driveway. My son and I made arrangements with the homeowner to stop out and search. The grass was longer than usual, so I could see how it would be hard to find the ring if it was dropped. After about 10 mins, all we had was $0.35 in change, a couple pop tops and a handful of other junk. Then, right in the area Robyn said to focus on, we got a strong hit on the detector … it was Brian’s ring! Someone must have stepped on it, possibly Brian while searching for it. It was about 1 inch underground, but was easy to retrieve. I then gave Brian a call to give him the good news, he was ecstatic. You could just tell the relief in his voice when I was talking with him.
This was a special hunt for me, as this was our first wedding ring search and return … we’ve been hooked ever since
So last night before my night hunt for the two wedding rings I receive an email from a young lady who lost her gold ring that was given to her by her mother. After discussing the search we both knew it was a long shot due to she didn’t know when the ring came out of her pocket..
These kinda searches I call (closure searches) I will search the most likely areas where they think the ring fell out of her pocket. My chances are very low as its a needle in a haystack…The area was very big and to boot there was power lines directly above me. This drives detector crazy!
The only thing I could do for the first part of the search was use my pin pointer, as we moved away from the power lines I was able to use my detector by dropping the sensitivity to almost the lowest setting. I would still be able to get a signal as the ring would be sitting on top of the grass.
The young lady was at work so her boyfriend met with me to show me the area they had walked when they realized the ring was missing.
After 30 minutes I got a great signal and as I bent down to use my pin pointer and move the grass there was here gold ring starring back up at me!!! Crazy, I was so happy and so was her boyfriend! I always give a 100% even if I don’t think I have a chance, today I was rewarded by finding this young ladies most cherished gift that was given to her by her mother…
Last night I went to sleep at 11:45 pm and I was planning on getting up at 3:am to go to the beach with a friend and do a beach hunt.
Minutes before midnight I awake to a phone call…911… someone lost their ring at the beach and wanted to know if I could help find it.
After taking notes of the location the ring was lost at I decide to search for it ASAP so that no one else would find it before I got there.
I get up and make a coffee and get ready to hit the road…The great thing was that it was the same beach my friend and I were going to at 4 am that morning. I wasn’t going to wake him up early so I went there to find the ring then come back to pick up my friend.
I get to the beach and I can see hand prints all over the sand in the area the ring was lost at, I know that I’m in the right spot, so I start my search.
After 10 minutes of searching in the dark at around 1:15 am I get a loud strong signal. I sink the scoop into the nice dry sand and I watched the sand sift through the scoop until I could see the beautiful color of gold!
After I returned home from the beach I had 30 minutes to make another coffee and get ready to pick up my friend and head back out to the beach.
