**** George called me to see if I could help him find his wife’s wedding ring lost in a park or along the walkway to the park. They had taken a break from moving into a new home, walking a couple blocks to a local park with their young son. 

His wife Shirley had put her wedding and engagement ring in a pocket of the baby’s tote bag. George was helping by carrying the bag not knowing the rings we’re in the bag. After returning to the new house Shirley could only find the engagement ring in the pocket. The wedding ring was no where to be found in the bag.

It was already after sunset but I felt it was important to get to the location even if I had to return the next morning. Sometimes it’s not possible for the person to meet me the next day. I’m also haunted by a recent ring search in grass where the lawnmower crew damaged the ring before I could find it. The there is always a possibility of someone finding the ring when it’s lost in a public place, so timing is important.

George met me about 8 pm showing me about three blocks where the and Shirley had walked to the grassy park. Then at the park he showed me a huge area where he had played hide and go seek with his little son. All the time he had the tote over his shoulder. It was going to be at least 4 or 5 hours to cover the area if I didn’t find it.

He said his wife looked at some of the videos she took during that afternoon. She believed the loss occurred in a certain spot. I thought that was the only clue I had to help me decidwhere to start.  I told George, this large of a search area would probably require me to come  back in the morning but I wanted to give it a couple hours before the park closed at 10 pm. He had a long drive back and had to work the next day.. I had what I needed to know and told him I would update him by texting.

Sometimes you start in the right location.. This was one of those times. Shirley was right about where the ring might have fallen out of the baby’s bag. I got a perfect white gold signal in the grass with my metal detector. Looking down with my searchlight revealed the wedding ring glistening on the surface of the grass.

I called George with the good news. He was about half way home but turned around to meet me. Both of us were excited about the successful search. I didn’t get to see Shirley’s reaction, George texted me..

”Thanks you so much Stan! I just gave the ring to my wife can’t even tell you how happy she is, words can’t explain”

It might have been easier to do the search the next morning. I just don’t like to see anyone have to worry and lose sleep not knowing if they will ever see that most sentimental wedding wrong again.

***  Darin’s fiancé lost her diamond engagement ring in their Laguna Beach house. She last remembered setting it on the table next to her laptop computer while she types.  Darin made the call asking for assistance. I said, I would need to be able to talk to his fiancé when I get to the home.

We met shortly after the phone call. Calle showed me the table where she uses her computer. She was sure that the ring was on the table the last she remembered. I asked if it was loose fitting and if she had left the house. Also, when did she realize the ring was missing. 

Often rings left on tables, counters, etc. get knocked off into drawers, shoes, anything that maybe on the floor. Sometimes that box, piece of clothing, etc. may get moved to another location or kicked under the stove / refrigerator. Calle did say the ring was loose needing to be resized. That could mean it could have fallen of when putting things in boxes, drawers or trash.

She was in the car when realizing that her ring was missing. We eliminated the car then went through the trash. Even taking a few seconds to passing my pinpointer over their dog’s stomach. Most the in house search was done using the handheld pinpointer detector. There were no places for the ring to hide near the computer table.  We finally located the beautiful diamond engagement ring in a fold of the sofa that drapes down the front of the sofa.

It had been torn loose by the dog and Calle often tucks it in place. She was embarrassed that she hadn’t remembered that action. 

I was glad for the ring was found because the next place to search was a two block area street search where Calle had walked the dog. Darin and Calle were very happy and surprised to have the original symbol of a special day in their lives back where it belongs. It was an honor and a pleasure to help them.

*** Marisa had spent the weekend at Doheny State Beach campgrounds, Dana Point, CA. After returning to her home in San Diego, CA. she realized her Apple Watch was missing. She was sure it had to be at the beach in front of where she had camped.

Marisa thought maybe she could rent a metal detector and drive back 60 miles the next morning. During the process of searching for a metal detector, she found my contact information doing a google search.

She called me late that Sunday evening. After telling me that she had taken her Apple Watch off putting it into a small jacket pocket. She was sure it probably fell out of the pocket on the sloping sand in front of the campsite. I explained that I could drive to the location before dark and it wouldn’t be necessary for her to meet me there.

Everything went well, I got to the campsite with enough daylight to search the steep sandy slope which was about a 30ft x 40ft zone.  Fifteen minutes into the search I was able to find the watch with my metal detector.

I called Marisa to hear the joy in her voice when I told her I had her watch safe in my care. We discussed the possibility of mailing it to her. I just don’t like trusting the mail. I already had another errand to do in San Diego. So I met her the next day to personally give her the watch. No waiting to 2 or 3 days for the mail to get delivered.  Also, I was happy to get my other errand taken care of while in San Diego. Plus I know a place where I can get the best burritos in the southland. 

On my trip home I got another ring call in Laguna Beach.

Rene’ called me requesting help to find her friend Chris’ iPhone lost the night before in the sand at Venice Beach, CA. 

These cellphones can be hard to find at the beach as they are often picked up by people walking the beach. After hearing that the loss occurred in very soft sand and the Find My iPhone app indicated it was still at the location, I told them I would be there within an hour.

We met on the beach where I was glad to see that the beach rake had not passed over the possible area of the loss. I set up my detector beginning a search grid approximately 20ft. by 30ft around the gps app location. From my experience the Find My iPhone App can be off as much as 30 ft. This find also occurred more than 35 ft. outside the gps ping location. After about 20 minutes I got a clear #30 tid reading from my metal detector.

I used my hands feel through the sand because it’s very easy to damage a cellphone with my metal sand scoop. 

Both Rene’ and Chris were very relieved and grateful to have the phone back saving them all the trouble of having to replace the expensive item,  irreplaceable photos and information.

Another successful search and happy smiles from Rene’ and Chris

Lost Glasses in the Sand at Huntington State Beach .. Found at Night with a Metal Detector

Craig called me at 6:30pm asking if I was available to help his son find his prescription glasses lost in the sand at Huntington State Beach. His son, John had lost the glasses in the sand while at a beach party with friends.

I was told by John’s father that the area of the loss was quite small but after 2 hours of searching they needed help. It was dark when I arrived and we still had two hours to search before the beach closed.

The possible area of the loss was much larger after talking to John which isn’t a problem. John believed his glasses may have fallen out of his pocket earlier while he coming from the parking lot to the firepit.  He said, he had to run across the sand to chase seagulls away from their food at the firepit. That was a couple hours before he realized the glasses were missing. He had also played some sort of game with a frisbee in another location.

It took about an hour to grid those first two areas. That’s when John’s father opted to leave wanting to thank me and call off the search. I was already on the site and felt another hour of searching would not be a problem. Twenty minutes later I got a nice signal that turned out to be John’s glasses. case of searching outside the box. They were about 30 or 40ft. away from any path that John had suggested. 

It was another fun search with the bonus of seeing a big smile from John who truly appreciated the work I did for him. His dad Craig was the hero for finding me at TheRingFinders.com.

Lost Mercedes Car Key Strands Couple in Laguna Beach,CA. .. Ringfinder Saves the Day

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


***  Ricky called me from Laguna Beach, CA. with a desperate request to help him find his only Mercedes car key. It would take five days to and more that $500 to replace the key including the towing fee. To make things worse,  he was on vacation and lives in Las Vegas, NV.

I only asked two questions #1 .. were the keys lost in dry sand and  #2.. can you be there to show me the general location. He said the sand was not wet when the keys were lost but the overnight tide had come up over the area. I met Ricky a half hour at Picnic Cove , Laguna Beach, CA. where he showed me he had set his pants on the sand the night before. He believed his electronic key had fallen out of the back pocket when he picked them up. Although he didn’t discover the keys missing until he got back to his car more than a half hour later.

The tide was receding but still difficult to search. I did a preliminary scan of the upper beach. These were actually a single electronic key fob without any other keys. It’s hard to predict if the key fob would settle under the sand or be pulled further down into the surf. Regular keys or a heavy mans wedding band would normally go straight down into the sand. I couldn’t guarantee that the key fob would still be in the area.

I stayed at the beach for four hours till the tide was low. After a thorough grid search, I found the key 40ft. to the south and approximately 40ft. down the slope under 4”or  5” inches of sand. I rinsed them off in fresh water then texted Ricky the good news. He wa
s there with a big smile and the real miracle was, the key still worked to start his Mercedes after 14 hours in salt water.

I learn something with every type of search and it was certainly special to help him and his lady. Get on the road again.

Key searches can be a problematic because people usually lose them while on a long walk or jogging. Many times other people find them first and don’t know how to return them to the owner. “Suggestion” put a name tag on your Keys and Celphone with you contact information.  There are a lot of honest people out there. Give them a chance to find you.
