Keys Lost in the Snow on the Way to the Post Box

  • from Cochrane (Alberta, Canada)

A morning call to recover car keys lost in the snow while collecting the mail.

Keys recovered from the snow

  • from Cochrane (Alberta, Canada)

It happens all the time. Keys are dropped into the snow which instantly swallows them up. If it isn’t heard, they’re gone.  A metal detector works great in the snow. In this case, it took a while to get the coil above the keys, but once I did, it was pretty obvious.

Another successful return and another happy person!

I Was contacted this afternoon because Elaina could not find her keys that someone had buried on the beach.

Glad someone did not step on it. Be careful out there..


Lake Christine/Los Colinas, TX ~ Lost Phone in Lake

  • from Dallas (Texas, United States)

Sometimes when you’re strolling along a water’s path, holding your phone and decide you need a drink from your water bottle being held in your other hand, attempting to remove the twist cap can be a little more challenging than imaginable.  That’s exactly what happened to Stephen yesterday. Getting in the water 5ft deep to search with a metal detector and scoop proved to be unreliable since the depth increased the further he tried to walk out. So Don suited up in his diver’s suit and tank to scan the bottom up to 15 ft deep.  After a couple of passes it was found in the far corner of the water.

PS… I do have to say it was really a strange feeling Scuba Diving in Lake Christine which is in the middle of 30 story tall buildings… I know we had many eyes watching us as we located this Iphone.

How to Find a Lost Gold Ring at White Rock Beach…

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Vancouver Ring Finder Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

I was on a very long search at Kits Beach when I got a phone call from a young man who lost his ring at White Rock beach. I told him I couldn’t make it out there until the next day and if he could meet me there but unfortunately he was working that day but he sent me a very detailed map and I knew right away where his ring was lost.

When I went to the beach the next day the sand looked very high in that area and I knew the ring could be buried a bit deeper, I set up my grid and began my search. There really wasn’t many targets in this area which made me a bit nervous but after 45 minutes I got a great signal on my Knox 800 and I turn my cameras on and revealed the ring in its natural hiding place.

I have to say I’m as happy as the person I find the ring for when I see it in my scoop! It makes my day when you can walk onto the beach and find a ring for someone and know how that will affect them in such a positive way. I text messaged JP with a picture of his ring and moments later I got his response. Because he works so far away I dropped the ring off to his brother-in-law who lives closer to the beach.

His brother-in-law told me about the day the ring was lost and how hard they search for it, he was pretty amazed that the ring came back and he was able to get it back to JP.

Caddo Lake Lost Ring Mishap on a Kayak

  • from Dallas (Texas, United States)


Drove  out to Caddo Lake for an individual to look for two very special rings. She is a nature photographer by trade (& a very good one) and had taken her rings off and placed them in the fold of her lap/shirt while in the kayak to get a pic of a bird.  Excited about the pic she continued to kayak around the cove snapping pictures and when it was time to head back in she paddled to the spot where she entered the lake.  Feeling the solid ground beneath the kayak she stood up to exit the craft and her rings plopped in the murky water.  In her panic to recover the rings she placed her camera equipment on shore and tried to feel around beneath the water to no avail. In the span of just a few hours she had purchased two different types of metal detectors and even tried to shovel clumps of Muddy Muck   from the edge of the lake.  However, a park ranger did not see the humor in that, made her stop and told her to call someone professional but that she was not to dig again.  She called us.  Due to the metal garbage in the lake we had to first remove all things that set off our detectors and then proceed to concentrate on the jewelry specified sounds.  One of her rings belonged to her mother (who recently passed away) and the other was her engagement ring.  After a couple hours searching thru the mud and the muck We found one beautiful ring which had belong to her mother.  The engagement ring is still elusive and we will have to travel back to continue the search another day.

Lake Lewisville, Tx New High School Ring in the lake 😔

  • from Dallas (Texas, United States)

Received a call from a young lady who was almost in tears that needed our help in finding her newly acquired 2022 high school graduation ring that unknowingly came off while swimming in Lake Lewisville. Since it was already at the end of the day but close enough to go view the area we met her about 7:00pm.  After accessing the beach area and the size of the area she had been swimming in we knew how to tackle this problem first thing the next morning.  After gridding off the search area we began to hunt; luckily enough it was little more than chest high in some areas but very murky.  It took about 2 hours, along with avoiding other swimmers who came to enjoy the day, but she now has her beautiful ring back on her finger.

Pottsboro, Tx – Her Father buried $300,000 in the backyard, Did we Find it All?

  • from Dallas (Texas, United States)


We got a call from Alberta, Canada from a very nice lady named Heidi, she said that her father had passed and that she was the executor of the estate in Pottsboro, Texas.  She said her father was a Prepper and a Horder.  He had left her an envelope with instructions on where he had buried up to $300,000 in silver coins in his backyard.

The family was able to find and dig up up what they believed at the time was all of the PVC Tubes with the coins from the yard.  But they were concerned that maybe there were others buried in the yard someplace.  They just wanted to be sure before selling the property.

So she ask us to scan the property to be sure nothing was left and to reopen all the PVC tubes that they knew about to be sure everything had been removed, and it had.

It was 95 degrees on Fathers Day morning at 8am to do our search.  We searched the entire backyard and then dug up the PVC Tubes where the known coins had been found.  It was thrilling to think that so much in coins had been buried there.  It really was like digging for buried treasure.

It was a great day and another satisfied customer for the Dallas Ring Finders…

Lost Medallion in Lake swimming

  • from Dallas (Texas, United States)

Having a awesome day playing with Kids in the lake, then Our client decided to swim some laps from pier to pier.  Just as he was getting out of the lake he realized his Gold Chain and Gold Maedallion which he always wore was gone.  This was a generational family gift passed down from great grandfather to grandfather to father to him.  He screamed and everyone got in the water dragging feet in the 4-6ft deep waters.  They spent hours looking for it until darkness set in.  In desperation he got on the internet thinking maybe he could rent a Underwater Metal Detector, in the process of the search he found us , Don & Ellen Wilson with Dallas Ring Finders.  Professional Metal Detectorists who also did underwater detecting.  Contacting me a 9:45pm on Mothers Day, we answered the call.  Set up a time to drive 3 hours to Jewett, Tx to search the lake 2 days later.  After nearly 2 hours of searching the area he thought it would be in we widen out our search grid and as I was bringing up my water scoop with a target I saw something gold in color flutter away back down into the lake.  I knew I had it, instantly I detected again and found the object, carefully scooping the item, I slowly raised the scoop to the Surface and there it was shinning like only gold can even in the middle of the muck and mud. After lots of yelling and whoops of happiness we got some great video and photos of another happy client.  Another Great Find for the Dallas Ring Finders.

Set of keys lost in a heavy snowfall in Caledon, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Ontario recently had a heavy rain, high winds, followed up by a heavy snowfall.

I had a call from Tony in Caledon who lost a set of keys in the snow somewhere in his driveway.

Tony had fallen in a number of locations because there was ice below 12 inches of snow.

I grid searched the first location, then the second and onto the third with no luck. We circled back to the second location and I widened my grid area. Within a few minutes I had a multi tone hit on my detector, spotted a portion of the keys and proceeded to surprise Tony!

Check out the video of this recovery;

Tony was very happy to get his guys back!
