Lost wallet in the water, Atlantic Ocean, Daytona Beach….Found and Returned to owner!

While searching for a lost silver cross and chain for a young man from Wisconsin, I dug up someones wallet in the knee deep waters of the Atlantic Ocean. That’s not something we find very often and from the looks and condition of the wallet and the contents inside I could tell it had been there for a couple of months, at least. I never did find the silver cross but who knows it may show up yet! Plus that very same day I eyeballed a really nice lady’s diamond ring that is waiting to be reunited with its rightful owner. So after I got home and got myself and my gear all cleaned up I took out the wallet I had found and started going through the contents. First off it had a flat magnet and a flat metal plate sewn inside the wallet that helped keep it in the closed position. And it was those two pieces of metal that helped me find the wallet under all that sand. It contained three credit cards, one Florida Resident fishing license, a drivers license and 52 dollars in bills. Not a bad score for a day at the beach!

Later that evening I did a little investigation on line and found the owner of the wallets family and gave them a call. A few days later the wallet and all the contents were put in an envelope and mailed off to Jacksonville, Florida and here is the response that Coby sent me a week later.

“Hi Mike, I wanted to say thank you so much for sending my wallet, cards and cash back to me in one piece! Although the cards are no longer useful, it is great to have my ID and especially the cash again. My sister Rachel (with me in the picture) told me you washed, dried and ironed it! I appreciate what you do for people and as a Christian man myself, I thank God for people like you! You do the world a service unlike no other and people like you make the world go ’round’! Please let me know if you ever need anything from me. I am truly in your debt and thankful to you and the Lord for this reunion! Take good care of yourself and keep up the wonderful work! PS Here is a picture of myself and my sister Rachel with the items you sent to me. God Bless–Coby”

Diamond Engagement ring recovered in the snow! Jackson, NJ By Matt St.Germain / Jersey Shore Lost Ring Finder

  • from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)

1st Ring recovery of 2018!

I got a message yesterday from Alexis in Jackson NJ. During an argument with her fiance’ as he was walking alongside his car she took off her engagement ring and threw it at him. It bounced off his car and disappeared. She found me and 2 other guys threw the Ringfinders website. The first person there was not able to find it. I then went with my Minelab Ctx 3030 with the 11″ coil and searched all over the driveway and into the yard in the snow on both sides of the driveway in -5 temperatures. After 3hrs i too was unable to find it. So fellow Ringfinder and friend Dennis Burligame agreed to go the next morning to try as well. I also went back to meet him and continue the search only this time i switched to my 6″ coil as the driveway is concrete and had a lot of iron reinforcement which made it difficult to search. Dennis and i both searched the same area and decided to narrow down the area and even though we both went over the same spots with the 11″coils we could not find it. I went over the same spots now using my 6″ coil and right near a heavy iron tone i got a blip of a good high tone signal. I then moved the snow around with my foot away from the iron and the high tone came in much clearer. As i bent down to move the snow around by hand it was at that moment i saw part of a ring sticking out! If it were not for that 6″ coil i would not have been able to locate it!. Needless to say the customers were very happy! Big thanks to Dennis Burligame for the assist!

Lost item in Eastern Washington

  • from Spokane (Washington, United States)

 

The trees have ears..?

The trees have eyes you might be saying, however deep in the mountains of northeast Washington  they had ears. What I mean is that, a gentleman named Skip had lost his hearing aid while out hunting. After looking in the dark for a few minutes and returning the next day to find that it had snowed, Skip decided to look for help. He called a local metal detecting shop and asked about renting a detector. The sales man knew he wouldn’t have any luck so he told him to look up the Ring Finders. So a few days ago I returned Skip’s call and set up a date to go looking. it was 19 degrees, the ground was frozen, but the sun was out. It took one and half ours to drive out to the location, 5 minutes to walk to the area, and 2 minutes for me to turn on my Whites DFX.  After Swinging it around and just barely hearing a change in the threshold while in pinpoint mode, Skip and I started looking on our hands and knees. Just moments into it Skip pulled out a piece of the aid from underneath a few twigs. So then we started moving around some branches and I spotted the other half that contained the inner workings for the aid. Happy, cold and elated to have helped this man, I thought I am so glad this was my first ring finders happy ending. Thank you for calling me Skip it means more than anything to have had the chance to help you.
