Two Rings in One Scoop

Two lost rings found in Chrissy field in the Presidio, San FranciscoRiana called me two weeks ago. She and Chris had visited San Francisco over the weekend. They had enjoyed a wonderful vacation, including a visit to the beach at Chrissy Field in the Presidio.

While Chris took photos, Riana put her hand in the sand. She didn’t notice that when she pulled out her hand, her rings were missing. It was only later that she noticed the rings were gone.

They searched for hours without success. It was only after returning home to Las Vegas that Riana discovered TheRingFinders. Though she was upset when she called, she and Chris were able to give clear descriptions of where they had been on the beach. Chirs sent more than a dozen photos, plus screenshots from Google Earth showing where she thought they had been.

Chris and Riana agreed to meet back at Chrissy Field on Sunday at 7:00am. First, they positioned themselves by memory, and I marked out a square search zone with Riana in the middle. While I searched that zone with my metal detector, Chris stood where she had taken the photos and compared them to what was on her camera screen. When I found nothing in the first search zone, she suggested I move closer to the water. After searching this second zone for just a few minutes, I got a good tone. I stuck my scoop into the sand, and came up with two gold rings.

Riana and Chris, thank you for coming back to San Francisco for the hunt. I couldn’t have found the rings without you. It was my pleasure to return them to you.

On the left is the first map Krysta sent me. The red box shows where she thought the rings might be. That’s a large search area-it’s a good thing they came back to narrow it down! Using their memories and carefully comparing photos, we were able to narrow down the search to Zone 1 and Zone 2 shown in the small green boxes. That’s a lot smaller area!

On the right is one of the photos they took the first day. If you look really closely, you can see Riana’s rings are already missing from her left hand.

I was just geeting ready for a water hunt when I saw a Ring post with a phone number. Ah what the hell, I’ll call him. Rob answered and seemed to know about our group TheRingFinders.com   I asked if he could meet me asap and we both headed to the area.  10 min later I walk down to the area to meet him and I see another detector guy 100 yds down the beach but headed the other way so I went and introduced myself. Wow we kinda know of each other, its a small world. Asked if he found anything back in the area he just went thru. Said no so I let him know if he did, reward is his. He smiled and replied I wish.

My phone rings and its Rob, I can see him coning down the beach on his phone. I say Goodby to this man and head over.  Rob shows the area so we make lines (big square) and I start to gid. Almost covered the area when Rob says, We might have been alittle more over there. An extra 10×20, so I do one pass thru turn and BEEP BEEP, I knew I had it. When u scoop a Plat ring you know it.  I turned my back and said whats it look like. 100% his.

I think he was a little bit in shock thinking no way in hell will he every see it again. He had brought his young son with him and they’ll have this story between them for life. I am STOKED to be a part of this….

Ring Found Camp Pendleton Delmar Beach

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

Friday  October 10, 2014

Sean called me early this morning telling me that he found my name in The RingFinders directory.  He had lost his white gold wedding band in the sand the night before. He had been working out with a squad of Marines  doing  some type of crawling exercise in the sand. Sean told me that he knew exactly when the ring slipped off his finger, but even that he knew the location it couldn’t be found. He said  about 40 guys searched the sand for about 15 minutes with no success .  I met Sean at 10 am and he walked me to the location  where it was lost.  Sean had placed a traffic cone in the general location and had ask the beach cleaning crew not to rake the area with the tractor rake.  ( last week I missed an easy search because the rake beat me to the location ). This  looked like an simple search, but I went south instead of north. After about 45 minutes I thought I’d cross grid and also check a little area north of the cone.  Ten or fifteen feet in the new direction my search coil was over the ring. After digging the ring in my sand scoop I called Sean over and we both were elated. Sean and myself were beginning to give up hope. I wasn’t ready to quit, but I was thinking of what words to say if I didn’t find it. After finding the ring Sean told me that he had just recently got married and he had not told his wife about the loss. At least he did save her a night of worrying about the loss.  I’m sure if Sean did not mark the spot and ask the beach crew to avoid raking that area we may have never found his ring..  I love  being able to help people, look at that smile.

In 2003 she threw this ring into the street from her front yard but found it the next day. In 2004 she threw this ring into her back yard and forgot about it, the marriage was really over! I was called to assist in locating an entirely different engagement ring recently lost inside her home by her new Labrador puppy. I was unable to assist that recovery, no new clues after the owner had had the dog x-rayed, turned her house upside down several times and sifted every new puppy feces by hand. That ring has vanished in the house. carolyn shirlock large edited small But while sweeping the backyard dog run and plant beds, I unearthed this dirty little golden clod that cleaned up into this stunning .7 caret solitaire diamond, surrounded by swirls of smaller round cut, channel set diamonds in a heavy 14k setting. Undamaged and in perfect condition after ten years in the ground, the delighted owner was so amazed see this again! carolyn shirlock diamond ring cu small

Lost Diamond Wedding Ring Crystal Beach, Texas (Recovered)

(Bolivar Peninsula-Galveston County)

07/05/2014

Received a call today from Jessie regarding his wives lost wedding ring at Crystal Beach on the Bolivar Peninsula in Galveston County, Texas.

Jessie advised his family was vacationing on Crystal Beach, and his wife Courtney had lost her ring in the water on Crystal Beach.  Jessie said she was in about 4 foot of water when she lost the ring and they where pretty sure of its general location.

07/06/2014

Plans were made to meet early in the morning today to escape the remaining 4th of July traffic in and around Galveston. The trip down early was the right plan but the trip back not so much, seemed like everyone was leaving the island at exactly the same time, cost me several hours.

Sargassum Seaweed has been plaguing the Texas coast for most of the month making metal detecting a little less desirable, and extremely difficult at times.

I meet Jessie and his family this morning and we did a walk through of how and where the ring was lost. The seaweed and tide conditions had all changed since the previous day making the location a little more difficult for Courtney.

After about 30 minutes of searching with no success Jessie and Courtney came back out into the water and placed themselves as accurately as possible in the drop location. I worked a circle grid around them and on about the second loop hit a faint signal.

I personally think both Jessie and Courtney were starting to loose a little faith in the idea their ring would ever be found. Perhaps being back out in the water and seeing what was involved changed their expectations.

I pulled up that faint target, washed the sand from the basket, and saw what most people would think could never be found.

Lost Heirloom Platinum & Diamond Wedding Ring Recovered in Palo Alto, California 94306

from San Francisco (California, United States)
Contact: 1-415-895-0334

Great referral from my Bay Area detecting partner, Dave Millman.

Kara had been playing in Bol’s Park with her kids the day before. She had given her Grandmother’s wedding band to her dozing husband for safe keeping while playing in the sandbox and pushing her toddlers on the swings.

Leaving the park, they discovered that her ring was missing from her husband’s pocket! They searched and searched where they had been playing but came up empty handed. Panicking, she posted a note on the bulletin board at her office at www.Google.com. Two fellow Google employees immediately referred her to www.TheRingFinders.com.

Within minutes, Dave returned her call, but due to family obligations, he was unable to help. It’s always smart to begin a search as soon as possible so Dave called me right away. I met Kara at Bok park in Palo Alto the next day.

As I began metal detecting under the swings, Kara had decided to “search her car one more time”. After I had been searching for about 10 minutes, Kara popped up beaming! She had found her ring in her car! I was happy too, as I shared her relief, in recovering her Grandmother’s beautiful platinum and diamond wedding ring.

I cannot take credit for recovering the lost platinum wedding ring, but, with her permission, I wanted to share this happy ending in our “Book of Smiles” at The Ring Finders. At the end of the day, the result was the same, another happy customer!

Another happy Ring Finder's client!

With extra time on my hands, I searched the rest of the park and came up with a ton of aluminum pull tabs, a tiny toe ring, a cool Chinese key chain and a few old coins. Overall, it made for a very satisfying day of detecting!

Recovered coins

41 coins recovered in 5 hours of searching. Nothing valuable, but great detecting practice.

Galveston is one of the most popular year-round coastal destinations in our second largest state TEXAS. It is an island in the Gulf of Mexico. You can still take a road trip here because it is connected to the mainland by a bridge. It is a city that offers many historical and cultural attractions, water sports, and great hotels and resorts. Galveston TX has most of its businesses downtown, but also offers many rental residences with access to the Galveston beaches.
