Lost silver bracelet in sand, Sanford, Fl….Found with metal detector!

Dev was enjoying a relaxing morning playing volleyball with his family and friends and when the time came to pack it up and head home he noticed that his large silver bracelet was not on his wrist. This bracelet was a special gift from his friends as a present for his birthday a couple of years ago. And he wears it all the time and could not believe that somehow it had come off. He and his family searched diligently through the sand hoping to find it and after a while they realized it had just disappeared. But Dev refused to give up and finally looked on line and entered “Bracelet Finder using a Metal Detector” and up came theringfinders.com. A quick search in the “Directory” showed I was located right here in Sanford, Fl. and he gave me a call.

I was just sitting down to lunch with my family so I assured Dev I could come out after we finished eating and if his lost silver bracelet was there in the sand I could find it for him and not to worry. Two hours later I met Dev and he showed me the sand volleyball court where they had spent the morning playing. He explained that they had switched sides after each game so the odds were even that it could be on either half. It took me about 10 minutes to cover the whole court and then I began searching around the outside along the out-of-bounds line. I found a few pieces of foil here and there and then the first strong promising signal turned out to be an old matchbox car and then not five feet away another strong signal. Slowly I brushed the sand away hoping to reveal what sounded like a large silver item and sure enough…there was Dev’s lost silver bracelet! Dev was so glad to have his special gift back in his possession. (The clasp had worked its way open and it was obvious what had caused it to fall off and into the sand!).

Lost Ring Located in Alexandria, LA!

I got a message via social media concerning a recently lost ring. ‘My friend Cherye lost her mother’s ring in her front yard, and she cannot find it,’ the lady told me. Shortly thereafter, I was in contact with the ring owner who was distraught that her mother’s gold and opal ring had left her hand during a cleaning project outside. ‘It should just be right there but I can’t find it in the grass,’ she related.

We arranged for a meeting, and after exchanging preliminary greetings and information concerning the item, I began a systematic grid search of the small probable drop area. The detector wasn’t finding what should have been an easy find, and there was some interference from the reinforced concrete nearby. I got down on my knees with my pinpointer and began a micro sweep. Sure enough, there it was a couple of inches from the concrete driveway!

Cherye was so relieved to have her ring returned to her. ‘Thank you so much!’ she kept telling me. The thanks is all mine. I am energetic about returning smiles to people whose hope of recovering a precious item, like Cherye’s mother’s ring, had faded.

Making smiles and new friends is why I enjoy the art and science of metal detection so much. This is what it is truly all about.

Brian had decided to take his dog out for a short walk behind his house and as he walked around the small lake he noticed how loose his ring was on his finger. He and his fiancee had bought promise rings for each other and they each wore their ring faithfully for two years. Brian had recently bought her an engagement ring therefore she no longer wore her promise ring and Brian sort of took up the habit of wearing her ring on his index finger on his left hand and just a few days earlier he jammed his finger so the ring was getting to tight and uncomfortable. So he tried wearing it on his ring finger and it sort of fit but was just a little loose. Add a little loose fit and some cool weather and Brian was setting himself up for his ring to fall off and that is exactly what happened. Somehow while Brian was playing with his dog he swung his arm to the side and he actually felt his fiancees promise ring go flying. Even though it was daylight Brian had no idea where the ring went and he searched for quite a while before finally giving up. The worse part was that he felt really bad about loosing his fiancees promise ring and he wanted to get it back ASAP because of the huge sentimental value it held.

His next thoughts were along the line of using a metal detector so he decided to try a search for “Metal Detector Rental” on his phone and up came theringfinders.com and one of my stories. Brian gave me a call and then sent me his address and a few hours later I was grid searching the exact area where he lost his ring. This area is a new construction area and the ground was signal free…with not a grunt or beep to be heard anywhere. Iron sounds as a grunt and non-ferros signals give a beep on my Garrett ATMax metal detector. As I was finishing up the 20 foot square area I got a great signal, crisp and clean, and there hiding in the grass was Brian’s promise ring! The relief was obvious on Brian’s face as he scooped up the ring and put it back on his finger! I thanked God for allowing me to find Brian’s special ring and for the privilege of being a member of theringfinders.com!

Lost Key Saved in Alexandria Louisiana

Livy W. and her friend were visiting a local park here from out-of-state, and had been searching for a lost key for an hour with a rented metal detector. They had given up the hunt when they saw me on the opposite hill, out hunting in the afternoon as my usual.

I waved and said jokingly, ‘No need to look any more, I already found everything.’ She then related the story of her lost item, and was elated to hear that I regularly locate lost things for people. As I was very familiar with this park, I was certain I could help.

After a couple minutes of introduction and information gathered, what kind of key, how big it is, what were the circumstances of it becoming lost, etc… I began the grid search on the hillside on which she had playfully rolled, losing her key in the process.

In about 3 minutes I was able to get a definite tell-tale signal on my Equinox, and I motioned for her to come over. ‘I think you’re going to be pleased with this,’ I told her.

She was all smiles and relief when she pulled her key out of the 2-inch long grass. Another successful recovery!

Two Lost Rings Located in Alexandria, LA!

  • from Alexandria (Louisiana, United States)

A friend of mine mentioned to me that his father had lost his wedding band on their property about 6 years ago. “I never saw Daddy more upset in his life,” Alfred said to me. When I told him I could help him locate it, he was elated. And as I was a new member of TheRingFinders, I couldn’t imagine a more fitting entry.

So Alfred set me to looking for his father’s wedding band, with a general description of the ring and the probable lost location. Searching the property was a fun adventure, but after several days of looking in that area, I wasn’t coming up with it.

I decided to expand my search area. That’s when I found an amazing High School Graduation Ring. Not the ring I was looking for, but even the property owner didn’t know about this one…

With initials clearly inscribed inside, and the School name emblazoned on the head of the ring, I asked Alfred if he knew anyone with those initials who graduated from there in the 40’s. He said, ‘Sure, that sounds like it could be for Uncle Sherman.’ Alfred’s uncle, 91 years old now, had lost his graduation ring in 1946, shortly after purchasing it. And he was ecstatic to receive it back after being lost 74 years! Sherman remembers playing football in the yard there, and it coming off his finger. But, neither he nor anyone else remembered it for such a long time.

Relentless ground pounding, and the expanded search paid off ultimately when I located Alfred’s father’s wedding band shortly thereafter.

The family had been feeling a measure of loss concerning it, but we were able to bring them closure. Making the SECOND lost ring we have returned to this family!

Alfred writes: “Thank you Ben sooo very much for all the treasures you have discovered on the family property & giving them new life. The lawn was just quietly holding history of our family waiting to be awakened. Two rings were found, a high school ring dated 1946, and no one in the family knew where it was. The second ring was my dad’s wedding band that he lost January 2014. We knew it was on the lawn but that’s 1 1/2 acres. I sooo wish he was still with to know it’s back in safe hands… It’s unbelievable the decades these items lay in waiting for someone like you to show them once again the light of day and to be enjoyed by the 4th & 5th generations of our family! Most Sincerely, Alfred”

Making smiles and new friends is why I enjoy the art and science of metal detection so much. This is what it is truly all about.
