Wedding Ring Lost at a Pacifica, Ca Beach…FOUND!!!

  • from Walnut Creek (California, United States)

We made the recovery!!!  Just after 2:30pm on June 21st good friend and fellow metal detectorist Jes Muse contacted me.  She was feeling under the weather but had received a call in Pacifica, Ca.  She asked if I’d be willing to take it.

With local weather being over 100 degrees, I couldn’t think of a better opportunity to beat the heat and lend a helping hand.

I contacted a Mrs. Laurie LeRowe for additional information and to confirm my appointment, and 1 hour later we were introduced beach side.  Mrs. LeRowe provided some background information as well as some landmarks defining our search area and our search began.

Approximately 20 minutes into the search and only my second good target, we made the recovery!!!

There were many reasons leading to the success of this story and there is some credit due…Thank you to Marshal Smith of Portland, OR who put the family in contact with Jes Muse (Pacifica, CA).  Thank you to Jes Muse who always puts her best foot forward seeing to the needs of those who contact her.  This was not the first time she’s entrusted me with a search and recovery and I hope not the last.  Also to the American Mining Supply for the new machine I used for this recovery, thank you!  Last, but most important, Mrs. Laurie LeRowe who tirelessly sought out information and services and who coordinated with most of the folks mentioned above to make this search happen and successful…Great Job!

To Fernandes and Hilary, I am grateful to get the opportunity to be woven into your love story and wish you both endless happiness in the future.

We Made The Recovery!!!

Testimonial for Brendon Chapman:

Brendan’s willingness and promptness to drive more than an hour to the site, through traffic (valley folks heading to the beach for cooler temps in addition to afternoon traffic) his detective skills and tools, and most importantly his kindness and generosity of time and effort with no guarantees of success. The ring was lost the afternoon before. Thankfully we were able to bless him for his efforts, skills, time and gas. I enjoyed our visit as we waited for Hilary and Fernandes to arrive after their works, to thank him in person . I highly recommend Brendon, and the others who helped me find him…Ringfinders site, Marshall, And Jes.

Gordon called me and said his fiancé  lost her engagement ring while having a bon fire at Huntington Beach. I arrived in about 20 minutes and they had circled a large area where her ring went flying when she was waving her arms.

It took me about 3 passes in the circled area with my detector and I had the ring in my scoop. Everyone was happy and satisfied with this metal detecting service from the ring finders.

 

 

Lost Ring in Carol Stream, Illinois.

Failure was not an option!
Over the years doing so many recoveries, I have heard so many stories, and once in a while one story stands out and tugs at you a little more, this is one of those stories.
I received a call from a woman in Carol Stream back in January.
She told me her husband had just passed away a few weeks earlier and he lost his gold wedding ring about 3 to 5 years ago in the garden.
She wanted desperately to get it back.
Problem I had was the ground was frozen and being lost for such a long time I was expecting it be be at lease a couple inches down.
I told her I would come back as soon as the ground is not frozen anymore and today was that day.
I searched 2 areas in front of the house she told me he was working at when he lost it with no success, but this is a search I could not give up on so I decided to go into the back yard, I was taken back at the size of the yard and thought for sure I would be there most of the day, double lot and at lease 200ft deep so I started thinking like a man, what would I have done?
I saw a picnic table in the yard, I could easily see him possibly taking off his gloves and taking a break at the table, something I’m sure I would have done. A couple minutes later I hit it at the edge of the table, can’t even begin to tell you the feeling I got when I saw it. The entire search took about an hour and to say she was ecstatic is putting it mildly, she held that ring so tight and kissed it over and over, so very touching.
A very HAPPY ending!!!

Lost wedding band, East Brunswick, NJ February 2022

  • from Seaside Park (New Jersey, United States)

I saw and add on a lost ring site that somebody had lost their wedding band while walking in a park. The add had all the pertinent information of the exact area it was lost. I quickly messaged Michelle explaining that she should just post the generic information due to the fact that unfortunately many people are dishonest, and may possibly go locate it and never return it to her. I also forwarded my ring finders link and told her if she needed help give me a shout. She liked my up front approach and honesty, so we arranged to meet at the park. we went over all the details, an while i was searching alongside the path, she walked with me to show exactly where she was. Unfortunately I had no luck, so I told her where to search in her car, post some flyers around spots she had went, an MOST importantly, do not through out her trash, but go home and dump it out and sift through it very carefully. 2 days later she messaged me in total shock, YES she found it stuck to a box. Although I did not locate it with my machine, I positively, with my knowledge in lost rings and jewelry, get 100% credit for her finding her beautiful platinum/diamond ring.

Gold Ring lost while celebrating Holi Festival

  • from Sunset Beach (California, United States)

Call Surf City Ring Finder 714-944-0555

Neha called me and asked if I could help find Abhi’s gold ring. They were celebrating Holi, a Hindu festival of colors when his gold ring came loose and fell into the sand. I told Neha I was 10 minutes away but the line to get in was more like 45 minutes. They waited patiently for my arrival and were very delighted when I arrived and found his ring in just a few minutes.

Lost Ring Old Orchard Beach, Maine. A ring finding tale in reverse.

  • from Rockport (Maine, United States)

Most of my Ring Finder post stories begin with someone contacting me to come search an area where they lost a ring. In this case however I found a ring while casually detecting at Old Orchard Beach and then had to try track down the owner. A plea on Craigslist and in the Friends of Ocean Park FB page asking for anyone who had lost a piece of jewelry on the beach to contact me with a description did result in a few inquires, including the person who lost it while vacationing. He gave a description along with sending a photo from their wedding album to confirm. The 14k gold band is now back in New Hampshire on the finger of a man named Dave where it belongs. Dave needed a Ring Finder, and luckily a Ring Finder found his ring and then found him, because the road to reuniting someone with their lost jewelry is sometimes a two way street.

Mike was enjoying a beautiful day at the beach, playing in the warm ocean water with his children when he felt his wedding ring slide off of his finger! He had lost some weight recently but he never thought his ring would come off that easy. Thankfully Mike made a good mental note of where he was out in the water as he lined up with the north end of the Moontide Condo building and he also noted what time of the day it was which also proved very important. They immediately started searching thru the sand and running their fingers along the bottom desperately hoping to find his lost ring but after a good while they finally gave up. Mike was very discouraged as he had never lost his wedding ring in 13 years and now to have it gone so suddenly…it was very upsetting! Then a friend of his, also named Mike, mentioned hearing about a group of metal detecting specialists that help people find their lost jewelry called theringfinders. That was wonderful news and within the hour he gave me a call and explained his situation. It was evening and the tide was coming up and I assured Mike that according to the information he gave me, the best time to conduct a search would be the following day just before low tide. Mike was a bit concerned that his ring would be washed out to sea but after hearing that rings usually stay in the same area where they are dropped he agreed to meet me on the beach at 12:30pm the next day.

I met Mike and his dear family and we walked out onto the wet sand and soon I had my 8 flags in position and started my methodical grid search. My first target brought everyone to their feet and as they anxiously walked out to see what I had found, I raised a small piece of wire and assured them there may be more wire and bottle caps and coins, etc… On my 8th pass I got a strong signal with my waterproof Whites TDI Beach Hunter metal detector and in the first scoop there was Mike’s lost gold wedding ring! I put it on my finger and waved to the family indicating I had found a ring! They were all thrilled and we were high fiving each other as we made our way up the beach. (I always tell people that I have my family praying that I would find their ring and that God knows exactly where their precious item is and that He would put my coil over it. And today He did just that!).

I am so thankful to be able to do my best in helping people look for and many times find, their lost item. How can I help you? Call, text or e-mail me ASAP!

Lost gold ring on Disappearing Island, New Smyrna Beach, Fl…..Found and Returned!

Alicia was enjoying a relaxing day at Disappearing Island with friends and as she was swimming she somehow felt her small gold ring come off of her pinky finger. She tried grabbing it as it fell thru the water but to her horror it vanished in the soft sand at her feet. She desperately tried feeling in the sand, running her fingers back and forth but her precious ring just seemed to disappear!

This small gold ring was very special to Alicia as it was a gift to her when she was 12 years old from her mother and she has worn that ring every day for the last 23 years, until now. The location where she lost the ring was on Disappearing Island at Ponce Inlet in north New Smyrna Beach. And it is a very popular place for the boaters to park and enjoy the calmer waters and especially at low tide. During high tide the island is quite small but during low tide there is plenty of area for boats to park and especially on weekends the island is lined with boats of all sizes.

I made plans to meet Alicia at the Smyrna Dunes Park and we each brought our own kayak and with my Whites TDI Beach Hunter metal detector, scoop and other essential gear we set out across the busy inlet water way. It took a bit of figuring as Alicia texted her friends and had them each send a pin on a google map photo of where they had anchored the boat and where they would have been swimming the day she lost her ring. Alicia was worried about me being able to find her lost ring but I assured her that if she could put me in the general area where she was swimming then there was a good chance of actually finding her lost ring. So we pulled our kayaks up onto the beach in the 95 degree heat and I set about my grid search going from the wet sand and out into the water and back again, dragging one foot to mark my trail so I could actually overlap each pass so as not to miss one inch of sand. (The day she lost her ring she was in waist deep water at high tide and today we were there just before low tide so my target area was the wet sand out to knee deep water.) After an hour and a half and only digging up bottle caps, pull tabs and other miscellaneous junk I was needing a water break and while talking to Alicia we determined I had gone far enough on the one end of the beach and now I needed to go in the other direction. Alicia was feeling a bit useless and asked me several times what she could do to help me in the search. She offered to cover each hole I dug and tried to assist in finding the hidden target after I would dig a scoop of sand and dump it on the ground. After a while I tried to encourage her that the best thing she could do was “Pray” as I assured her that God knew exactly where her ring was hiding and that He would just need to get me over the top of it with my coil for us to find it. It truly is a matter of inches, as Chris Turner always says, and finally there in ankle deep water I got a faint signal and as the sand drained out of my scoop I could see a small gold ring nestled in the bottom. I motioned for Alicia to come over and look at what I just found and I will never forget the look on her face! The joy and relief and happiness all mixed in with thankfulness!

Lost Wedding Ring Found in Grass after Being Destroyed by Lawnmower.. Brea,CA.

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shaun went for an early morning workout on some bars at the neighborhood totlot in Brea, CA. Before starting his exercise on the bars he took his shirt and wedding ring off. He wrapped his ring in his shirt, setting his shirt on the wood chips.  

When he finished his workout he picked up his shirt putting it on. He walked about back to his house less 10 minutes away. That was when he realized his ring was not on his finger. He knew that it had to be in the immediate area of where he picked up his shirt. Possibly it flew a few feet away when as he shook it off?

Shawn’s wife Mitzi had found me online and had called me within the first couple hours after the loss. I met the both of them at the park before noon. Walking to the location I could see the maintenance crew working the area but the were just mowing the lawn. The workout area does not get used often so we still had a chance that nobody had found it before we began our search.

This was the perfect search conditions. I set up my detector beginning to do a grid pattern. After thoroughly covering the possible hiding places in the wood chips and walking the asphalt play ground where the ring could have rolled quite a distance, the ring didn’t show up.

We walked back to the my car to get another detector. Walking across the grass we eyeballed what looked like the ring. It was Shaun’s ring that had been hit by the lawnmower. It was what you could call a bittersweet moment. We had the satisfaction of finding the ring but it was sad that the lawnmower had destroyed the stainless steel wedding band. I guess it better that not finding the ring. That ring could have been thrown into the grass cutting catch basket and we would have never known what happened to Shawn’s ring.

The ring was more than 40 ft. away from where Shawn had put picked up his shirt after working out. We think that the ring had stayed in his shirt till he tucked it into his pants as he walked home?
