Alyssa called me 5 minutes after my request for help in Coronado. She had lost her wedding ring/engagement combo in the dry sand somewhere in a 20 foot radius around where she was sitting. She was also visiting from out of town (MN) and was leaving the next day. After my successful recovery in Coronado, I headed to Pacific Beach with high hopes. Parking was virtually non-existent down by the beach, so, I parked a good 1/2 mile away and hiked to the site with my gear. She was waiting for me right at the search area and I started a grid search. On the first pass, I found a dime, a piece of trash, and then her rings. A happy Alyssa can now head home happy she doesn’t have to explain to her husband how she lost her rings here in San Diego! Thank you for the reward.
Chris called me to see if I could help find his wife’s ring lost in the dry sand in front of the Hotel Del Coronado. I said I would go home and get my gear and head over. When I arrived and met up with them, I got the story of how it was lost. His wife Kristina (I know, that’s probably illegal in some states to have virtually the same name!) was dusting sand off her hands against her pant legs and the ring went flying. Running their fingers through the sand trying to filter out the lost ring proved fruitless, so, they went into the hotel and asked the Concierge for help with a metal detector. The hotel doesn’t have one, but, they have my contact info on file and called me on their behalf with the follow-up call from Chris. In less than 2 minutes of searching, I handed Kristina her beautiful ring. Their trip back home in AZ will be much happier now. Thank you for the reward.
On 5/7/18 I was out on the North Shore at 5:00 AM preparing to look for a lost men’s wedding ring and it was still dark. As I’m getting ready I look online and saw a lost wedding ring posted on Craigslist on the opposite side of the island and decide to respond to the ad to offer my help. As the sun started to rise while I was on the North Shore I notice that the waves coming up and looked too risky to put my metal detector in the water next to all the reef and to look for the ring in the high surf conditions. I decide to text Faith and see if we would be able to meet up to search for the ring she posted about on Craigslist. She and I decided to meet at the beach. She told me that she had someone come out and look for it thoroughly for an hour and a half the day prior so if I was willing she would appreciate it. I decide to go over the searched area even though it was search previously as “It’s always good to search for yourselves” and sure enough after a few TRASHY items I noticed on my CTX3030 a solid reading of gold/Platinum! As I look in my scoop there it is and I think to myself thats a beauty. What do I tell Faith? How do I tell her as she is simmering around the beach and telling Uncle China (Known Surfer) about her lost ring. I shout to Faith ” Do you wanna SMILE NOW or LATER?” Faith responds, “huh?” I say it again, “Do you wanna SMILE NOW or LATER?” Faith stops in her tracks and shouts “NO WAY KAI” with tears running down her face I hold up her beautiful ring. The onlookers and the guys that were with Uncle China gave a loud shout and exciting praise!!! The ring which is so precious was back in the rightful hands and now able to pass down to the next generation. Precious items should be kept safe and I know this family heirloom will be kept safe and passed down for more years to come. Thank you and always have FAITH!
Nellie called for help on a lost earring that her husband had given her for Mother’s Day. She had been busy all day and wasn’t sure exactly when and where it was lost, but, the beach seemed to be the most likely. My wife and I finished our dinner and headed over to Coronado to meet Nellie and conduct a search in the dry sand. When we arrived, it was after sunset, but, enough light to find ground zero on the beach. Nellie had the other earring with her, so, it was helpful in seeing what it would read on my new Equinox 800. A solid 8 signal….great. I started a spiral search from the supposed middle of the search area. After making a circle over 50 feet in diameter with still no earring (or much of any signals for that matter), I started a straight line grid over to the stairs and back thinking she might have lost it on her trip to her car. It was getting a bit chilly, so, I sent my wife back to the truck to get my windbreaker, and Nellie headed up the stairs to visually check there and the parking lot. I continued another pass, and got that sweet “8” sound in my headphones. Ran my pin pointer over the sand and pulled out what we were searching for, even though it was a bit out of the perceived search area. I walked back toward the parking lot where my wife and Nellie were talking. My wife had my windbreaker under her arm and while I was putting it on, I asked Nellie if this earring looked familiar? Hugs all around and a happy Nellie. The sodium lights didn’t help the photo of the earrings, but, they are beautiful! Thank you for the reward Nellie.
Francis was gardening Saturday the 21st of April 2018 and while on a high bluff she took off her gloves and in doing so launched her white gold and diamonds wedding ring down the bluff into the deep vegetation below.
On the 23rd Francis found us on the internet and contacted me. I arranged to meet at her house and do a search.
With my trusty MXT and a pin pointer I started up the slope and within 15 minutes I had a major hit.
OMG this is one awesome ring and it looks great back where it belongs. Francis said “a lesson here is not to wear your rings gardening “
Found this beautiful family heirloom clasp for this wonderful couple from Winston Salem, NC.
They were at Old Salem having a photo shoot when her grandson apparently was playing with it while she was holding him and it opened up and fell off without her knowing…didnt take long and we found it and got it back to her. she was a very happy lady and so was her husband. Love my job!!!! It’s something I’m very passionate about… Getting peoples valuables back to them as quickly as possible.
Found buried safe key that had been in the ground for a year or more. This fella was one happy guy when we found it. He did a great job putting me really close to the area and my Garrett AT Pro and Pro Pointer AT did the rest! Congrats Friend! My slogan… IF ITS THERE…. ILL FIND IT!!!!!

I received a call back on the 18th of March from a woman who was positive she lost her wedding set in her back yard while doing some spring cleanup with her husband. Despite searching through the leaves for hours, they were unable to locate either of the rings. They also decided to go out and purchase a metal detector and give that a try. They quickly realized if you are not proficient and experienced with a detector, attempting to use one on the fly leads to frustration. I was able to meet them at their home that very day (Sunday) and immediately began my search once they showed me the probable areas where the rings might be. After about 20 minutes……SUCCESS!
The rings(the one in the picture above is her engagement ring) were not too far from each other and were up close to a shed in the yard. To complicate things, there were spare railing pieces leaned up against the shed making the “hiding place” perfect, but they couldn’t escape me!
The rings are now back where they belong with their very happy owner!
Rob was cleaning out his gutters and slung his ring off into the back yard. He purchased a metal detector and tried to find the ring, without success. Locating TheRingFinders on line, he called us for help. We set up to hunt the next day. Carrie and I had a 20’ x 20’ area to hunt. Easy-peasy. Ten minutes and we reunited Rob with his wedding band. Thank you Rob for the generous reward.
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!!!
