Lost ring found after slip n slide mishap in New Orleans, Louisiana

  • from New Orleans (Louisiana, United States)

I was contacted Sunday afternoon by a young lady in New Orleans, Louisiana who says she lost her silver ring after sliding down a slip n slide that she set up in her backyard. Having a relatively unscheduled Sunday, I made my way down to New Orleans. Within 5 minutes, we were able to recover the ring under some blades of grass. Her face lit up with excitement because they had searched the area for hours the previous day with no luck. I used a Nokta Makro Simplex+ and a Garrett Propointer AT to make this recovery.

Ring lost 18 months ago found in New Orleans, Louisiana

I received a text message from Catherine who resides across Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans, LA. She stated that she just recently heard about the RingFinders and was wondered whether we would be able to help her locate her White Gold Amethyst ring she lost in her backyard in August 2021 (18 months ago). She also said that she has since sold the home and we would need permission from the new owners. She received the ring on her 16th birthday from her mother, so the ring was very important and she had possession of it for a long time. She believed her partner may have pressure washed it off of the stairs after she set it down to do some yard work. After looking for around 30 minutes, I accumulated probably over 200 nails and screws. Luckily, I had my magnet to eliminate these quickly so I can focus my Garrett pinpointer on the higher quality targets. I dug out the mulch and rocks in between two posts on the side of the porch. After picking out all the nails with my magnet that came from between the posts, I noticed my pinpointer was still picking up a target. As I moved the dirt to see what the target was, out pops the ring! Finally, after 18 months, Catherine was able to be reunited with her ring.
