from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-699-0521


On Saturday March 10th 2018 I noticed on Craigslist a lost Gold necklace and ring which was LOST at Waimea Bay on the North Shore of Oahu. I was previously there hobby hunting but in the water earlier that morning. So, I replied to the post and I got in touch with Jessica. Jessica was more than happy to give me the info needed so i could narrow the search area as it is 9:45 in the evening and visibly would be poor. I packed up the equipment and kissed the wife and kids good night. I arrived at Waimea bay and start the search. almost 2 hours into the search and after many coins and rubbish I FIND THE JEWELRY! I was so excited to text Jessica while standing on the shoreline for a meeting the very next day. She agreed and we met up in Salt lake Where I was able to return her precious items. This hunt was very spontaneous and yet Successful. Thank you Jessica for allowing me to reunite your MISPLACED ITEM… Happy to find it but excited its back in the rightful owners hands. Below is a clip of the journey!!!




Found! Diamonds and Gold Wedding ring at Log Castle during lowtide… Langley Washington!

from Seattle (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-206-651-4779

Last weekend, Corianne was digging up bait shrimp during lowtide at her family-owned vacation rental, The Log Castle Bed & Breakfast, https://www.vrbo.com/1015151  when she realized she had lost her custom made white gold and multi diamond wedding ring! And since the sand was like quicksand while digging, it could be very deep in one of the holes they made digging up sand shrimp…

She emailed me after  purchasing a detector and having no luck searching with her husband. Unfortunately my schedule wouldn’t allow me to hunt for it for at least a week after she had lost it. The soft sand and tides could really engulf it in that time, but it was worth trying.

After a week, I was able to take a road trip up there, and after searching for about 3 hours, surrounded by bald eagle nests and at least 3 eagles  and about 25 seagulls watching me work… I found it!

It was an emotional reunion and a great location to hunt at, despite the quicksand like conditions… and I will be camping on the property as an added bonus! Maybe some bald eagle photos to follow…

Diamond dazzler!


Lowtide @ Log Castle … LOCATED!

45 Second Search Yields Lost Ring

Michael and his Wife Emily of Alexandria, VA were taking a short vacation to visit his 94 year old grandfather in Venice, FL then spend a couple of days at Treasure Island Resort.

Michael and Emily went out to the beach and shortly after arriving Michael went to the waters edge to wash his hands and his wedding ring slipped off his finger and out of sight. After searching the sand for a while he started googling “how to find gold rings in the sand and came across theringfinders.com website and contacted Tom Jones and asked if someone could help.

Tom met the couple later that afternoon, Michael told Tom exactly where he thought it was and 45 seconds after turning the detector on Tom finds the ring exactly where it it was supposed to be and returned it to the smiling pair.

The couple told Tom, “it is nice to know there are people like your group left in this world.”

This one took 45 seconds to recover.

A very happy couple!

Michael, Emily, Tom and of course, the ring.

Cheerleader Loses Wedding Ring Set In Oldsmar, SRARC Recovers It

Christi leads a cheerleading team in Oldsmar, Florida. On Wednesday night, prior to practice, she had removed her wedding band and engagement ring and set it on top of her bag. With darkness falling and practice over, the girls grabbed their bags. Christi gets to her car and reality steps in !!! My rings !!! Racing back to the corner of the field, no rings were found.

On Thursday, Ryan, her husband was able to borrow a metal detector at work. Four hours of gridding and searching delivered a big, fat goose egg.

Ryan did some internet searching and was lead to the Suncoast Research and Recovery Club and their team of Ring Finders. Mark Prue got the call from Ryan on Friday and the three agreed to meet in Oldsmar the following morning.

After dodging a disc golf tournament, dog walkers and a cricket match in progress, Mark started searching the area. The second target Mark came across found his XP Deus screaming GOLD !! A quick search with the pinpointer confirmed it. He pulled the grass aside and there it was !!! He called Christi over, told her to look here …..hugs and tears ensued !!! Another return for the Ring Finders !!

The wedding ring set.

Diamond set Omega watch recovered from lake in Warwickshire village

from Oxford (England, United Kingdom)

This search was a difficult one. It was the second time I had been to recover some items that had been…well no easy way to say it but quite literally thrown in a lake.

The first visit was very difficult, it was just before Christmas and half the lake/ large pond was frozen which in some ways was helpful as the lost items would have been on the surface of the ice, so I only needed to look where the water had thawed. The water was extremely cold but I did have very high waders. that session I managed to recover one diamond ring and two bracelets before the cold really started to wear me down. Also I didn’t have the best sand scoop.

So I decided to return a couple of days ago with an all new sand scoop constructed by me using an old aluminium fire extinguisher. This thing worked great and was small enough not to grab masses of silt that was very heavy last time. The problem was this time there had been lots or rain and the water level was about a foot higher. this meant in the deepest parts the water would go over the top of my waders ( nearly 5 ft) and fill me up, very uncomfortable, also the control pod of my detector would have been submerged so that was cable tied to my shoulder strap. Anyway after a few hours and bits of trash I had a good signal, there was zero visibility in the water as one could imagine with the amount of silt, so retrieving that target was a challenge, what came out was part of a watch bracelet that was an item I had been tasked to recover. The rest of the watch had to be very close, another ten minutes and out came the rest of the the watch. It was diamond set ladies Omega Constellation with mother of pearl dial and diamonds for each numeral, and still working!

A very happy lady! and a very smelly drive home!

Lost ring in Lake Eustis, Florida…..Found and Returned!

from Sanford (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-321-363-6029

Danielle called me on a cold, wet Saturday morning in November, desperate for help. Apparently her sister’s fiance, Levi, had bought a beautiful engagement ring and wanted to do a practice run on the “Big Proposal” and somehow lost the ring. She explained that Levi had decided to go to Lake Eustis, with his older brother, and find the perfect spot to practice his proposal. Levi was standing along side of the rail and as he opened the ring box, to his horror, the ring popped out of the box, hit the concrete and dropped into the water below! He was stunned! His precious gift, the white gold ring with the .8 carat diamond was gone! He could not believe what just happened. He called his dear future sister in law, Danielle, and explained his dilemma. She immediately looked on line for someone to help and typed in “Lake Salvage” and nothing came up. Next she thought of “Ring Finder” and bingo, up came one of the ring finders stories.
I packed up my gear and headed for Lake Eustis. It was raining when I arrived and there was Levi, his brother and Danielle standing in the rain, anxiously awaiting my arrival. Levi told me exactly what happened and I could see he was upset….so I tried my best to give him hope and encourage him not to give up. After suiting up, I grabbed by gear and wadded into the murky water. Thankfully it was only 4 feet deep but the bottom was very uneven and full of weeds and debris. Right away I started finding targets. I retrieved a few coins, pull tabs and fishing lures…all the while trying to find Levi’s ring. After 30 minutes or so, I got a strong signal and up came a fish scaling tool. Then right in the exact same spot I got a clear, clean gold signal that proved to be Levi’s lost ring. I will never forget the look of relief on their faces and what a thrill it was to see their smiles. It was an honor to help you Levi, and I hope and pray the story of your lost and found ring brings smiles to your faces each time you recount the events of this day. Congratulations and may God bless you both!

Troll Angry! Lost Gold Wedding Ring Found in Fremont… Seattle, Washington on Christmas!

from Seattle (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-206-651-4779

This Christmas, under a bridge,  I battled a giant troll for a gold ring! When he was distracted by tourists taking selfies, I snatched a lost heirloom from under his gaze and returned it to its rightful owner!

A woman lost her mother’s wedding ring, inscribed with her father’s name, while throwing snowballs at the troll on Xmas eve. She was just visiting this state for the holiday, so it was crucial she find it before her flight out of Seattle. After renting a metal detector, searching and not having any luck, her friend found my name on Google. She called me Christmas morning and I was on the case in a couple hours.

Luckily after around half an hour of searching, I hit the target! Buried in the snow was her ring! I was super happy to help and I got out of there quick before the troll knew what had happened…

Gold ring snatched from the Troll!

Happy reunion!

Something Fishy!

from Orange (California, United States)
Contact: 1-951-505-9849

Tom called and said he had lost his ring in his Koi fish pond while putting in a bubbler system for the fish.
He noted that his ring was loose, just prior to going in the water, and thought “I Better be careful and not lose it.”
After putting in the bubbler system, that evening he went to take it off and put it on his dresser as usual, and noticed it was gone.
Visually searching the pond, which was fairly clear and just had 1″ gravel on the bottom, but could not see it. He called me and we set up a time to meet. Upon arrival, we went to the pond and he offered waders, but I wore my shorts and water sandals in prep. He said it was really cold, and I said not to worry, I am used to the beach.
It was deeper that I thought, about 2′ and Coooollllddd as heck!
I pretended it was not that cold, and began searching with my AT-MAX. Tom watched a minute then went over to roll up the hose, and I heard him shout “I Found it!”.
He forgot that he had hosed off the patio after finishing in the pond, and it must have slipped off then, and it was just under a chair on the patio. I was happy he found it, but happier to get out of that freezing water. lol
Though I did not find it with my detector, he said if I had not come out there, he would not have looked over there and I thought that a gardener, or someone else may have found it instead. Such a nice guy, and he told me the story of why the ring meant so much to him, and I felt glad I had a part in finding the ring, even though my detector didn’t find it, but my presence did.
