This lucky guy got his lost ring back when I was looking through some random stuff at the flea market and came across a familiar looking emblem on the ring. It was from our high school East Davidson that we went to. Didnt even need a metal detector this time just my smart phone and Facebook! lol!!! Within a few hours I had it back to him…Very grateful for getting it back and added another friend that will be promoting me and Ring Finders!!!  This was a totally different scenario and I was truly blessed to be able to get it back to him….

Lost wedding ring at Bethune Beach, Fl……Found!

from Sanford (Florida, United States)

February 12th, 2018 Kyle wrote, “This is less of a review and more of a testimony. After an evening with my wife and some friends on the beach, tossing the football around, I realized after we had left that my wedding ring was no longer on my finger. To say panic set in, would be an understatement as this was the ring my wife and I had picked out together just over a year ago and she had put it on my finger at our wedding shortly after. After searching as thoroughly as possible, all hope was lost. How could I replace something that was irreplaceable? Turns out I wouldn’t have to! Thanks to some quick searching online by my wife, we found Mike’s information and I quickly contacted him. You would have thought his services would cost more than the ring I lost by the amount of detailed questions he asked, trying his best to narrow down the most likely location of my ring. After a few emails back and forth late in the evening, Mike put my mind at ease and said he was on the job. I thought, surely this was a lost cause, a ring lost on the beach….good luck with that! But Mike didn’t need luck, he’s a skilled veteran and within an hour of setting foot on the beach, he recovered my lost ring and saved my wife and I both heartache and money. There is no way I can thank him enough for his services. He’s living proof that miracles happen and sometimes you have to lose something to find them. As I told him before I left, I’d hoped I’d never need his services again, but you can bet that if the occasion ever arises, I’ll be calling Mike, The Lord of the Rings, to bring my precious back home to me!”
Thank you Kyle for contacting me and giving me the opportunity to help you get your “precious” ring back where it belongs.

Just a Bag o’ Leaves – Valley Forge Lost Wedding Ring

from Downingtown (Pennsylvania, United States)
Contact: 1-717-314-2078

Unfortunately with all the telemarketers calling, I usually let my calls go directly to voicemail and if they leave a message, I know it’s usually not a salesperson. Well one of those calls was from David. He lost his wedding ring bagging up leaves; he was pretty sure it was in a compost collection bag with a bunch of leaves. Piece of cake, this is going to be an easy one! 

It’s always difficult to gauge the traffic around Philly, so I like to leave a tad sooner – better early than late I say. And this was the case here, I arrived about 15 minutes too early and received no answer at his door, fortunately David was right on time. After some quick introductions we got down to business. David told me the story of how he was bagging his leaves and when he was pretty sure that his ring when he lost his wedding ring, as it had slipped off like that before. We tried to retrace his steps the day he lost his ring and he showed me all the spots in his yard, where he work, but hopefully the lost ring was in one of six bags of leaves.

I saw the bags sitting in his garage and they were even numbered. David numbered them in order that he remembered bagging them. I was ready to get to work and find this ring; this should be done in a few minutes. I was thinking to myself that I wished they were all like this – nice dry conditions, not too cold, dry leaves in bags, this is great!

First I moved the bags out to a clean patch of grass, so that I had no metallic interference. I then started to scan all around the bags, tip them over and check the bottoms…which one contained the ring? Well, none of them did and that’s when that “easy peasy” feeling left me. I proceeded to empty one bag of leaves, as I had a hit, spread them out and detected them, but it was a false signal. So I had to regroup and start on Plan B, the yard. Things did not look so rosy anymore, but who ever said finding a lost item was easy. 
I grabbed my rucksack and headed over to the front yard, nothing left to do but execute the classic grid pattern and mark them with my little orange flags. I set my detector to discriminate out most other metals, except for gold. On my detector, the Garrett AT Pro, unfortunately this setting also includes bottle caps, pull tabs and those annoying little aluminum snippets from house siding. You really have to listen to the quality of the tone, someday I’ll get a fancy detector. I received a few hits, although some were good, they were too deep. I always want to dig them, but since I am here on a service I had to pass them by – you never know what else lies down below. 

The daylight was fading fast, so I had to pick up the pace. Then, right near where David said to look, I had a sweet sounding hit; even before I bent down I could see the glint of gold as I moved the blades of grass to one side with my coil! SUCCESS!!! It was a nice sized ring, still very clean and polished.

David was happy with the recovery and I was relieved that everything had worked out in the end. I am often just as disappointed and frustrated as the people who hired me, when I cannot recover their lost item. I love to see the smiles on their faces when I can show them the recovery – which usually hold great sentimental and or monetary value.

We talked for a bit afterwards and I found out that David used to fly on the same helicopter I work on – the CH-47, aka the Chinook. He told me one particular exciting story of a Chinook ride during his tour in Vietnam; I enjoyed relaying his experience to my coworkers.

I am also very grateful for his generous finder’s fee, which came just in time for the holidays and ended my Ring Finder’s work for the year on a high note.

My Dog Boomer Ate My Gold Ring and Necklase! Stony Plain, Alberta.

I must say in all the years I have been a member of the Ring Finders group this callout gets the top marks in all categories.

Kerri called me yesterday regarding their dog Boomer.  On Boxing day 2017, while Kerri and Travis were visiting family in British Columbia, Boomer found his way into their  bedroom.  Kerri had placed her wedding ring,  engagement ring,  and gold necklace on the night table.   When she returned to the room she found Boomer chewing  on a box of Kleenex,   The ring and necklace was gone and Kerri found one ring on the floor on the other side of the room. Boomer is not your average dog,  he is 120 Lbs Bloodhound,  a big friendly giant.

Kerri was getting worried that the ring and chain was still inside Boomer and asked me if I could check to see if the rings was in him. I told her I could run my detector over him but it would not tell me what was in him and if there was something she would have to take him to the Vet! she also asked if I could scan the Poop bags she had collected over the past 10 days in his dog run I agreed to meet them this morning.

I arrived and met  Travis and Kerri and of course Boomer the Hound.  I scanned Boomer and found nothing,  so onto  the next task! The  Poop bags! On fourth bag my pro-pointer went off and I told Travis this could be something.   I told Kerri to get some hot water and a bucket so we could thaw the bag out and see what was in  there were the rings and neckless all in tack. Lucky for Boomer – no vet and lucky for Travis and Kerri, no bills!

This search will go down in History for me.

Thank you Travis & Kerri.

Lost Iowa Hawkeye Lettermen Ring… Found Iowa City, Iowa

from Iowa City (Iowa, United States)
Contact: 1-319-430-3606

I received a call from Jim in early September about his lost Iowa Hawkeye Lettermen’s Ring. He graduated from the University of Iowa in 1972 and lettered in track and had the ring to prove it until Sept. 2nd.

He and his family went to the Hawkeye football opener in Iowa City on Sept. 2nd. It was a hot sunny Iowa afternoon and Jim applied some sunscreen before the game and isn’t sure but later he thought he might have placed his ring on top of his car while applying the sunscreen and then forgot it.

He realized during the game that his ring was missing and of course they looked for it but couldn’t find it. On the way home his son was sitting in the backseat and heard something rattling around on top of the car. When he looked out the back window he thought he saw something gold hit the pavement and then go in the ditch. So he told Jim to stop he thought it was his ring that fell off the car.

They borrowed a metal detector and searched for 2 hours and didn’t find it. Later that week he found me online and contacted me and we met the next Sat. at the location. We had five of us searching with two metal detectors for over four hours and didn’t find it.

I went back on Sunday the next day for almost 3 hours and didn’t come up with it. For any of you who have attempted to search a road ditch you know how brutal it can be. There is always so much trash and the weeds are high, plus the traffic is distracting.

I had prior commitments and work for the next month of weekends but I finally made it back out there on Oct. 15th. I switched to my 6 inch coil to get through the weeds easier and separate through the trash. After an hour and a half I got a good signal next to a buried pop can and I found it!!

Here is a short video of the recovery

Plus some pictures

Gold Ring Lost In Vegetable Garden, Hazeldean, Edmonton Alberta.

from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-780-497-2118

I received a call from Lisa this morning asking if I could help her locate her gold diamond ring which she had lost yesterday while picking vegetables from her garden.

When I met Lisa she told me that she had searched for three hours along with her husband last night, They had also used a metal detector in the search but could not find the ring. I told Lisa that most probably they had buried the ring even deeper into the ground while looking for it. Within five minutes I located her ring buried five inches deep in ground.  Lisa was very happy to have her ring back on her finger.

Thank you Lisa for entrusting me to find your ring.

Another happy client.

Lost Platinum Wedding Ring Potters Green Edmonton, Alberta

from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-780-497-2118

 

I received  a call late last evening form David requesting my service to locate his lost wedding band at the neighbourhood playground while he was play with his children.  I scheduled a meeting with him at 8:30 am this morning.  David told me how his ring flew off his finger and he spent a lot of time in the immediate area searching for his ring in the sand with no luck at all. With my experience and of past searches I knew his ring had to be within six feet from the immediate area.

Within five minutes of meeting David, I found his ring and he couldn’t believe that his ring flew that far from the area he was initially looking at.

David was very happy to have his ring back on his finger, thank you David.

Another Happy Client.
