Tiffany & Co platinum wedding band lost in DUBE Lake, Orrville, Seguin, Parry Sound, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Tim and Family were enjoying a peaceful summer vacation at a tranquil cottage on Dube Lake in beautiful Orrville, Seguin Falls in the District of Parry Sound, Ontario! Absolutely amazing area in Northern Ontario Muskoka’s cottage country!

Tim went in for a dip in the refreshing waters, pushed off the dock approximately 10’ to 14’ out, waved his hands and his Tiffany & Co platinum wedding band was not longer on his left ring finger.

With the help of a Google search, ‘The Ring Finders’ directory popped up and Tim was referred to my Ring Finders home page and blog recovery stories.
I had a lovely sunny fresh morning 3 hour drive to Ontario’s fabulous cottage country!

Met the family, geared up, coaxed the snapping turtle “Fred” to relocate, and Tim showed exactly what he doing when he lost his wedding band in the 6’ wide by 12’ length area.

Off I went into the very dark waters to start my underwater search with the Dive BLU3 Nomad battery operated hookah air system, my trusty Minelab Excalibur2 underwater metal detector and the Deteknix pin pointer.

Once I was approximately 10’ out I was 12’ depth and I heard the unmistakable tone of platinum on my detector. It was complete black visibility even to turn on my pin pointing. I had to move up to 6’ depth to see the on button and then proceeded back down to the target area to re-locate Tim’s wedding band.

Finally l, with the help of the pin pointer, I was able to here / feel the ring just tucked in behind a branch and popped back up to the surface to surprise Tim and Family!

It took roughly 7 minutes because of Tim’s accuracy of the area where he lost his wedding band! I love “quickies”!

Lost iPhone 12 recovered after 7 weeks in the waters of Georgian Bay, Wasaga Beach, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Emily was visiting The waters of Georgian Bay at Wasaga Beach 1 for the day with Friends.

She was way out by the buoy’s about 500’ from shore in floaty rafts! A wave came from behind and toppled her over and unfortunately her purple iPhone 12 was dropped.

She contacted me and we met up at beach 1. The depth was 7’ to 9’ but due to rough conditions and a bit of an undertow the DIVE BLU3 Nemo couldn’t be used. I then decided to grid search best I could for 5-6 hours but had no luck!

Seven, YES SEVEN weeks later I was searching for a young man’s 22k gold ring and came across a strong wonky signal with the new Nokia Legend metal detector!

*B*A*M* second scoop and one foot down and there’s Emily’s purple iPhone 12!!!! I couldn’t believe my eyes but also the location was 400’ east and only 150’ of the shore line!!!!

When I finished detecting for the day I had a bag of rice in my car and immediately put her iPhone in and hoping for the best!

Two days later, I FaceTimed Emily to surprise her! She was shocked to say the least! I proceeded with her permission to plug it in and it worked!! Best part… it was confirmed her iPhone!!

Check out the video;

Not only did Emily back up her iPhone on a weekly basis but she had AppleCare for a full free replacement!!

Thank you Emily for your kind donation to the Kelly Shires breast Cancer Foundation and it was a please to help you!!!

Incredible 22k 10g engagement band lost in the waters at Sibbald Point Provincal Park, Sutton West, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Dhawal & Khushi we’re visiting the beautiful Sibbald Point Provincial Park on the shores of Lake Simcoe for the very first time last Saturday!

Dhawal had applied sunscreen all over as well as his hand area. The group headed into the water, talking photos, swimming and splashing about. Dhawal then noticed his 22k engagement band was missing!

Another Ring Finder Stephane was called and re-directed Dhawal to me. I discussed with Dhawal that I needed Parks permission and proceeded to apply in writing as directed by the Parks Superintendent. We immediately heard back and we’re ready to attend the location after work!

Luckily the waters were calm on Lake Simcoe, started grid searching back and forth moving easterly. Found a pair of prescription reading glasses which I notified Parks office in hopes to return them to their rightful owner.

After a Parks Ranger stopped by and checked my credentials, 3 minutes later I had a solid 34 on the new Nokta Legend at 4” to 6” inches down! Then it was surprise time!!

Dhawal & Khushi we’re thrilled to have this incredible 10 gram 22K gold engagement ring back we’re it belongs!

 

Heirloom Lost, Found and Returned on Chapoquoit Beach, MA

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

July 31, 2018 Emily took a late evening dip in Buzzard’s Bay not knowing King Neptune would be ripping her heirloom engagement ring from her finger. The next day Cindy (her mother), Kevin (her fiance’) and a friend, Isabel had helped in looking for the ring to no avail. At 5:05 I pulled into the parking lot. After introductions and the story of the loss I made it into the water at 5:20. On the third pass in the delineated area and my first target, the ring was found. Many onlookers were amazed at how easily I had made the find. It was not me, it was Emily as she knew exactly were she lost the ring. It was within 8 feet of where she had shown me how she had lost the ring. Kevin showed up about 10 minutes late to see the recovery. But he was in time to enjoy the thrill of Emily having the family heirloom back on her hand, soon to be taken in marriage. Well wishes to a terrific couple.
