Lost wedding ring in Sandy Hook NJ Found by Matt St.Germain

from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-732-581-0285

7/12/20 I received a call from Emily.
While at Sandy Hook beach with her husband and family she had removed her wedding rings and put them into her wallet. At some point she grabbed her wallet out of her bag to go up to the food truck. At some point during her walk her wedding band had fallen out of her wallet. It wasn’t until they were on their way home and she went to put them back on that she realized one was missing. They drove back to the beach and started searching the sand where they were sitting for at least an hour but were unable to locate it. I made arrangements to meet them out there once she was able to get permission from the federal park police (Metal detecting Sandy Hook is strictly prohibited) She was able to get permission so off i went. They showed me where they were sitting so i began my search there. Nothing… I then began a 10ft wide search towards the beach walkway little by little which is about a 100ft away from where they sat. Once i got within about 10ft of the beach walkway doing a another 10ft block of sand i finally got the kind of signal/number i was looking for about 5 ft from the walkway. As i shook the sand from my scoop i could hear the familiar clunking sound of a ring, Her ring! I yelled and held it up in the air and they came running over. They were all so happy and relieved! Another happy ending! 

Ring lost at Mission Beach found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Pete and his wife were escaping the heat inland and decided to go to south Mission Beach. Pete took his wedding ring off before going out in the surf, and gave it to his wife to hold. It was a bit big for her fingers, but, that’s where she held it. By the time Pete came back, his wife wasn’t feeling too good, and in their haste to pack up and leave, the ring came off and into the dry sand. After Pete did a Google search to get help, he came across one of my posts and texted me.  Being a Saturday afternoon, parking was going to be impossible, so, I had an early dinner and hoped the crowds would lighten up a bit so I could actually get to the beach.

I texted Pete back when I got to the beach and found he was already there waiting. He showed me the search area, and I started at what he thought was ground zero, and spiraled out from there. Naturally, since he had been there earlier in the day, the tide was at a different level, people had come and gone, so, figuring out exactly where they had been camped wasn’t a sure thing. After quite a bit of the supposed search area was covered, I was beginning to wonder if someone had already found it. I was finding a few other targets with similar target I.D.’s so I was still hopeful that it was still there somewhere. At the end of one of my passes, I was dodging around where some people were sitting and hit an area a bit out of the initial search area. It was an area where I was going to expand into next. I could see that people had been there recently by the disturbed sand. Sure enough, I got a nice solid 15 on my Equinox and found Pete’s ring. A happy Pete can now go home and make his wife feel a bit better. Nice to meet you Pete and thank you for the reward.

Lost Pendant in Long Branch NJ Found by Matt St.Germain

from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-732-581-0285

Earlier today i was contacted by fellow Ring Finder Dave Milsted. He referred me to a woman named Patty. While at the beach in front of their condominium building with her husband and grandchildren. Her husband shook out their beach bag and unfortunately in the process her Star of David pendant fell out of the bag somewhere. They tried to find it but were unsuccessful. I made arrangements with her to do a search in the evening. Her poor husband was very upset that he had lost it. I was determined to find it. She met me at the beach and showed me where they were sitting approximately. I searched the area with no luck. I then began to widen the search area and Patty then approached me and told me she didn’t think they were that far. But i told her it can get moved by the beach rakes and also the lifeguard stands are never in the exact spot each day. So i kept expanding the area and after about 30-45 mins, About 20ft away from where she estimated they were sitting, I found it! She was overjoyed! I am so happy i was able to find this very important sentimental pendant for her! I never get tired of these happy endings!

Ring Lost for 7 Months Found!

from Leesburg (Virginia, United States)
Contact: 1-571-258-7217

This was a referral from another theRingfinders member; I received a call from a lady in Front Royal, Virginia about a lost ring. After talking to her for a while I found out the ring has been missing for about 7 months and even after a few other detectorists tried to locate it they were not able to recover the ring. I made the 50 mile journey to her home and upon arrival she showed me where she believed the ring was lost. Her husband had been doing yard work and was throwing leaves into the woods next to their property and shortly afterwards realized his ring was missing. After doing a quick view of the property and asking a few more questions I went to work. Within 30 minutes I had located the ring buried under some leaves, but also in between several rocks which may be why others had missed it. The owners wife was ecstatic to have her husbands ring back! This was November 2019 and she didn’t plan on giving him his ring back….at least not until Christmas, wrapped under the tree!! So happy to help Brandy.

Emerald Isle, NC: Wedding Ring Lost In Sand Found And Returned

from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-614-354-6704

Lauren & Rick were spending some time along the Crystal Coast. While staying in a beach house rental, Rick gave his wife his wedding ring to hold while he took a dip in the ocean. Lauren placed his ring on her finger and stayed on the beach with their puppy. The pup made a sudden move towards Rick and the lunge caused his wedding ring to go flying into the sand.
12 days later, Lauren contacted me and I headed out that day. A lot of favorable conditions made this recovery possible.

100 GM Cuban link Gold Chain found on South Beach Miami Florida Returned to owner.

from North Miami Beach (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-754-707-1233

As I was metal detecting in the water on South Beach Miami Beach A couple of guys approached me and asked me to search for a gold chain for them. I spent two or so hours looking for it but after analyzing the situation and having only found beer cans and pennies. I thought we needed to go further out. The problem was it was getting to be the highest tide. So I took a break and waited until the tide went out further they agreed and after signing the contract. I continued to search way out for another 1 hour or so with little results. After discussing the possibility of a need to come back another day and or switching to another metal detector with better sensitivity. I got a target.!!! And brought up the gold chain in the picture. The owner was sooooo happy to get his chain back.

Lost Wedding Ring in Lbi NJ Found by Matt St.Germain/Dennis Burligame

from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-732-581-0285

6/22/20 I was contacted by Gregg. While in Lbi at the beach he decided to go into the water for a dip and while he was out there his ring slipped off his finger. After going over the location and getting an idea on where to start, I went out there the next day to give it a try. He said he believed he was only about 2-4 feet into the water. So for a few hours i went back and forth before the drop off and 4 feet past the drop off. No luck. I felt like maybe he was further out than he may have thought and Gregg agreed. So i went back out again the next day and brought my fellow ring finder and good friend Dennis. I showed Dennis where i had searched already and that it may be in deeper water. We started on opposite ends. I began closer to shore and Dennis went out about 10ft. Within about 5-10 minutes Dennis had found it! Another happy ending thanks to teamwork!
