I get a call from a young lady telling me that she was at White Rock Pier when her husband was giving her a beautiful 22k gold band when it suddenly slipped out of his hand and fell into the ocean below. She told me at that moment they both thought it was a gone forever.
She went back the next day and thought she saw the ring in the water below but it wasn’t the ring. She went home that night and went on google and searched the internet and found TheRingFinders. We decided to meet at the pier and she showed me the exact location the ring had fallen into the ocean.
Because the tide was low in the early morning I decided to go before work the next day. I got up at 3:30am and was at the beach by 4:50am I had the ring by 5:15 am and on my way to work! It was lucky the ring was there as its a very popular place to metal detect.
I enjoy the recoveries and I’m as excited to find the ring as the people are who get the ring back!

I got a call from a young man who lost a gold pendent, he told me that it was given to him by his father who was a fireman for 25 years and wore this pendent in over a 1000 calls. It was a gold firefighters helmet with the truck number inscribed on the front of the helmet and two dates on the underside. His father gave him the pendent when he retired and his son started in the same Fire Department and truck the day his father retired.
Needless to say it was very important to find this pendent and continue the story so one day his son could have it and know the history of these two great men that put their lives on the line to help others. So we discuss the search area and i start to detect and I’m getting nails and not much else. he shows me that he made a sifter and was checking for the ring but gave up. He dumped the sifter and guess what…It was in the dirt from the sifter! It’s funny where these irreplaceable items show up!
I’m so proud of this directory and the other 400+ members doing the same thing as I do…Finding lost Smiles!

This all started when Lana gave me a call early August 8th and asked if i would help look for her wedding ring which she lost in the water almost a week and a half ago. I let her know that I will do my best and give it a shot. Knowing that Waikiki is a detectors favorite and its been over a week I needed to get down there ASAP and bring along with me help. So, I asked my dad if he would be willing to help and as always… Dad said yes and we were out to Waikiki that very morning. After 4 and 1/2 hours my dad and I came up short. NO ring! We went home knowing we gave it a good scan but there was some variables like tide and there were a lot of people in the water. So, The very next morning I get a gut feeling to go back and look. I drive back out to Waikiki and start looking again. After 45 minutes I get a faint sound and decide to dig it. I dig a big scoop of sand out and toss it on the sea floor and run my coil over the hole. BOOM I get a louder tone and it sounds like gold. A few more digs and I run my coil over the gaping hole in the ocean bed in which i don’t hear anything. So, I run my coil over the mounds of sand that has been removed and BOOM its there. I scoop and whats inside my scoop is a huge size 11 14K White gold with diamonds and a center 2 karat diamond in the middle. I knew I found her ring. As i am on my way back to the shoreline to rinse off I see Hawaii News Now setup by the showers and I ask them if the lady from yesterday is ok? The exchange words and then Billy V from hawaii news now asked the question… Did you find her ring? i said YES! He asked to see it and if it would be ok to let hawaii News Now run a short story about this event. I said yes and the lights went on and then came ACTION! We were able to call Lana and film the good news of HOPE and ALOHA. Well this was definitely GOD orchestrated and the saying is true… ALOHA IS ALIVE.
I get a call from a young lady who tells me her husband lost his platinum wedding band off a dock on the Fraser River…My first thoughts were I need a diver and that it could be a dangerous search as that river has a strong currant. After talking to her she said that her husband dove in and tried to search for it and that he was able to touch bottom at low tide.
This was encouraging as i don’t know of many fishing docks that you can touch bottom, we discussed the search and made a time to meet the next day at low tide.
I decided to bring my wetsuit and I’m sure glad I did as the water was very cold surprisingly! When I jumped in I could barely keep my head above water and that made it very hard to search on my tip toes! After 20 minutes or more I got a good signal but had a heck of a time trying to scoop it up. It was a chin deep water hunt!
Finally I checked my scoop and saw it in the basket so I put it in my hand and told them that my batteries had died and that I needed to change them…This bought me time to do the surprise reveal and capture the excitement on camera…
I love my job!

I just finished a successful recovery for a man’s lost ring at 3rd beach at Stanley Park when my phone rang with a US area code. The first thing the young man said was… Are you TheRingFinder guy? Yes I am I said, thinking I was going to be giving him a number to one of my American members, then he said he was at Whistler and his wife lost her diamond engagement ring at a photo shoot near a water fall.
I listened to the story about how she took off her ring and put it in her shorts as she was climbing down some big rocks, down to the water fall. When she got there she pulled off her shorts and when she put them back on she noticed her ring was not in her pocket. Her husband searched till dark for the ring with no luck, his wife was very upset and cried all night.
The next morning Cole went online to look and rent a metal detector and that’s when he found TheRingFinders directory and called. He told me the hike down to the water fall was around an hour, he also sent me pictures of where Allie took off her shorts as he thought that would be the likely area the ring fell out.
I could tell that it wasn’t going to be metal detecting friendly as there was some big rocks in the area. He was desperate to have me come out on Friday as the two of them were leaving town on an Alaska Cruise ship Saturday. The only problem was I had to work. After a long discussing I decided to take the Friday off and head out to help the young couple.
I drove 1 1/2 hours to Whistler and met the young couple and drove them to the water fall. We hiked for close to an hour and arrived at the spot they believe the ring was lost. I used the detector in a very small area, but no signal. After rethinking the search it was inevitable that we had to pry up the rocks in the area and look underneath them. Cole found some nice thick branches that we used to pry up the rocks, after 45 minutes it wasn’t looking good and that’s when I moved a sizeable rock from the area, as we were sitting talking I put my pin pointer into the hole and received a signal, then I put my hand into the hole and grabbed hand full of small pebbles and “Bang” there was her beautiful diamond ring in my hand!!!

On 07/19/18, I received a phone call from Michael requesting my help in locating his lost Mt. Saint Marys Class ring on Lewes Beach. Michael said that he had decided to go for a swim and that he had taken his ring off of his finger, placed it inside of his baseball cap which he laid on the sand. Michael said that when he was done swimming he picked up his baseball cap and started to put it on his head forgetting that his ring was inside. Michael said that the ring fell out of his cap into the sand and that he was unable to locate it. I responded to Lewes Beach and Michael showed me the area where he had lost his ring which he had marked. I began my search at the marker that nearest to the water and as soon as I placed my coil to the sand I received a very loud tone in my headset. I took out one scoop of sand and there was Michaels ring.
It was Sunday morning around 5 AM and I take a look at my missed calls while checking emails. That’s when I noticed there was a voicemail of a lost wedding ring at Sunset beach on the North Shore. I responded to the voicemail via text. The couple, Sean and Megan now were on vacation from Utah. We agreed to meet up so my family and I headed down to Sunset Beach.
When we arrived at their address Sean took us to the back of their beautiful vacation rental which is steps away to the beach. Meeting the family and getting the story on how Megan unfortunately lost her ring was heart wrenching. She was playing in the sun and enjoying the water with the kids and after sometime in the water she looked at her hand and noticed that her ring of 19 years fell off her finger and she didn’t know where! In desperation The family tried snorkeling but didn’t find it.
I gathered all the information I needed and headed down the beach. I asked Sean if he can grab a bunch of the white rocks in the sand to help line the bottom of the ocean floor as markers while I search and grid out the area. I decided to start from the deepest part and work my way to the shallows as the tide was on the rise! I did one pass around chest deep to over head and nothing. But, as I started to make my next line I got a loud “platinum” sound in the deeper part of the sandbar. I started to dig and fan all along looking and praying this is the lost ring. I then notice a ring, approximately 6” buried in the sand with the markings described of Megan’s ring, a big and thick Platnuim band with yellow gold that surrounding a diamond. I was sooooo excited to find it! As I grabbed it and looked up towards the beach where the entire family stood looking at myself and Sean, I held up her RING and Megan’s sister shouted… “I think he found it!” And the whole family was moved with emotions and tears as i can hear them excited and in awe. So, I handed Sean his wife’s lost but FOUND wedding ring. As Sean headed up the beach he met his wife in the yard and got on one knee to put back on her finger. The precious ring symbolized his love for her.
To the Stolhs … THIS FIND WAS ANSWERED PRAYERS! Another vacation saved and another happy ending! Glad to help and have a blessed time on the North Shore!
Tuesday I got a voicemail in regards to a lost white gold and diamond pendant in Gig Harbor… It was in a basket of personal items that was in the back of Jennifer’s SUV, and someone forgot to completely latch it! At some point the basket fell out of the car onto a relatively busy country road and spilled all the contents! Including an extremely valuable and sentimentally significant diamond pendant! They exhausted themselves looking but were only able to find the main, larger items on the side of the road. She suspected the pendant had hit the grassy ditch and a metal detector would be the right tool to locate it.
Since I was busy during the week, I had to postpone the search until the weekend, and was hoping no one had found it in the meantime. We met this Friday afternoon and went over the story, pictures and location where it had occurred. Since it was a busy road, we had to be mindful of cars as we walked to the area. I left the metal detectors behind in my truck, planning to retrieve one as soon as the details were all clear… then I’d begin the hunt!
Imagine our surprise and elation when within 2 minutes of arriving on the scene, I SPOTTED THE DIAMONDS TWINKLING IN THE SUN!!! ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD!!!
NO METAL DETECTOR NEEDED!!! One stone was loose but near the pendant and it appeared to be in great shape other than the loose diamond! Another happy ending to a very stressful few days in this families life. Glad I could help, and just a little sorry it was so easy this time 😉
On 07/08/18, I received a call from Shanti requesting my help in finding her silver & gold ring that had been lost on the beach in South Bethany Beach Delaware. Shanti asked if I was available to come to the beach to search for her ring right away because the tide was coming in. I told Shanti that I would be at the beach in about twenty minutes to look for her ring. When I arrived at the beach, Shanti told me that she had placed her ring in a pocket of her shorts which had been laid on a beach chair. Shanti said that the beach chair and the shorts had been moved from their original location on the beach to a second location and that after the chair and shorts had been moved her ring was no longer in the pocket of her shorts. Shanti said that the ring could be in the sand at either of the two locations. I began the search for the ring at the original location and as I started to swing my detector the ring revealed itself buried at about an inch in the sand. The ring was recovered and returned to its rightful owner. Shanti was delighted to have her ring back.
