*** Greg and Jolene are from the San Francisco Bay Area and  vacationing at Newport Beach for a week. The third day Greg went into the ocean for a swim in the surf. As he was walking out of the surf he shook his hand and his gold wedding band flew off into waist deep water. The waves were coming in at such a rate he could not see the ring before it disappeared into the sand. 

I got an early morning text from Jolene asking how and what my service works. I told here I work on a gratuity basis. They could decided what it was worth to them after they see how I perform the search.After determining that they were just minutes away from my location and the tide was as low as it could be until tomorrow. I told her that I would be right there if they could meet me. 

We met on the beach which is what I call a short beach, that beach has a steep incline. The tide does not go far out from the upper slope (dry sand towel line) The important thing is that they could give me the best North/ South location. I didn’t feel the ring was far out at the low tide but that’s where I started to stay ahead of the incoming tide. 

After about a half hour I had grid searched to mid-slope where I got the one an only signal. Two digs with my sand scoop and I had Greg’s gold ring in my scoop.  The incoming tide forced me to start in knee high water, even though I felt the ring was up higher on the slope. Best to eliminate the lower area before the water was too deep to search. 

Both Jolene and Greg were elated and relieved that they had the ring. Now they could enjoy the rest of their vacation, They admitted to me that they didn’t believe the metal detector could find a ring that had been in the surf for almost a whole day. Like most people that call The Ring Finders they told me I was their last hope. I love doing this, even when I can’t find the item, you can’t get them all and you can find the item if it isn’t there.  Reality!

*** Jeremy and his wife had been at Huntington State Beach sitting around the firepits the night before calling me. His wife had lost a gold earring in the sand near the firepit. It was a very special hierloom passed down to her from her grandmother. I was at the general location before Jeremy showed up and I could see a guy detecting the firepits.

Jeremy arrived about 10 minutes later. We walked out to the firepit where the loss occurred. I could see that the other detectorist had already worked this firepit area. Jeremy marked a 15’x 15’ zone that he believed the gold earring should be. Beginning to swing my 11” coil set up on my Equinox metal detector,  I knew there was a lot of trash metal in this location. It would be better to get my other detector with the 6” coil. 

I asked Jeremy to go ask the other detectorist if he had found the earring and he had not found the earring. I went back to my car to get the better detector for this trashy area. I also brought a small hand sand sifter to use up close to the cement firepit that is reinforced with iron rebar. If the earring was close to the firepit, the rebar might mask the possibility of getting a signal from my detector.

You won’t believe what happened after I got back to continue the search. Jeremy had a rake that a camper had lent him. I told him the rake was a waste of time for a small earring. It would be more helpful if he could use the small hand sifter to pull the sand away from the rebar cement firepit. 

Then I gave him a demonstration of how to use it. I took two short scoops with the scoop and the miracle happened. “BOOM “ there in the scoop was the gold earring. Exactly on the opposite side of the firepit where he believed the loss had happened. 

Unbelievable!! This was completely unexpected and I’m starting to get used to these types of recoveries. The best thing about it was Jeremy could return to the hotel to surprise his wife.

*** Sarah’s daughter had just completed her first day at preschool. Her first day away from her mother. When the little girl ran across the lawn to hug her mother. Sarah dropped to her knees to greet her daughter. A happy memorable moment, until Sarah realized her gold diamond stud earring fell into the grass.

I was on the beach detecting when she called, asking for help. We were able to meet a little more than an hour after discussing what had happened. Sometimes fulltime mothers have trouble getting free from their motherly duties. It’s always nice to have the person that lost the item present at the location.

We met on the front lawn of the private school where she showed me the thick grass and a 15’x15’ area. I had asked her to bring the matching earring in a sandwich baggie so I could test it with my metal detector.

This earring had enough metal to get a fair signal. It still took about 15 minutes to coach a decent reading in the thick growth of grass. I use a high frequency detector for stud earring searches. Sarah was very happy to have her favorite earring set complete. She asked if it was possible to find the custom backing.

It was not easy to locate that piece. I was beginning to think it may have hung up on Sarah’s or her daughter’s clothing, dropping off further from the stud earring. After more than a half hour, I switch to a multi frequency metal detector using a 6” coil. BOOM! the small custom backing was almost 3” deep in the grass, imbedded in the clay mud. I did tell her that the backing was going to be a challenge. After my favorite small gold metal detector didn’t get it. I was surprised that the two pieces were only 12” apart. The important thing was we got both pieces and Sarah went home delighted to have her favorite earring set complete again.

Lost Cellphone in Silverwood Lake, Hesperian, CA. .. Recovered from 12 feet of Water.

*** Javier’s wife Yuri had been jet skiing at Silverwood Lake, CA. When they tied up at the dock Yuri had set her phone on the a dock. Her sister didn’t see the phone and accidentally kick the celphone in the water.

Javier called me , asking for help to retrieve the phone that had irreplaceable photos and other important information on it. He had tried a few dives attempting to get the phone. When I asked him how deep he believed the loss occurred, he estimated it was between 9ft. and 15ft. It was going to be 125 mile drive so I wanted to be as prepared for that type dive recovery. Sometimes these lakes do not allow scuba diving. I decided to take a chance that I would be able to use my new portable surface air supply set up, Nemo Blu 3. It weighs 7 lbs. and will not attract as much attention as full scuba gear. 

My only concern was the Nemo surface air supply only has a 10ft. hose which limits the depth I can search. We approached the docks mid-day when there was little boating activity. I put dive warning flags in the zone while Javier stood watch at the dive site.

On the first dive I located a signal with my underwater Pulse Dive handheld metal detector. It was Yuri’s celphone. The water must have been more than 10ft. deep. As I reached to grab the phone I could feel the hose tugging on the float at the surface. We were lucky that it wasn’t any deeper.

Everybody was happy that we were able to get the phone, especially me. I wasn’t looking forward to spending the whole afternoon or another 125 mile drive for a longer search.

I’ve recently lost my celphone and was very happy that I have everything on it backed up in the iCloud. After purchasing a new phone it was completely restored within 2 hours. Well worth a couple dollars a month.

**** Two friends had been enjoying their first outing on Huntington City Beach after months of being at home during this virus lockdown. They buried their keys in the sand under their towel and could not find them after returning from a walk on the beach.

Someone on the beach saw them frantically searching the sand. He recommended that they call TheRingFinders metal detecting specialists. 

They called me and I was able to meet them shortly after receiving the call. I was able to find both sets of keys soon after they showed me a 30’x30’ location. After finding the keys I could understand the panic they were suffering, not only two separate car fob keys, they had other important keys that would be a lot of work to replace. It was a pleasure to help them. They were very appreciative of my help. That’s why I do key calls even though they can be difficult because they are often lost in large search areas.

*** Received a call from a lady who had lost her cellphone at the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach, CA. She had spent the day on the beach with her son after many weeks of staying at home with this virus problem.

It was late in the afternoon noon so I did not waste time asking too many questions. I jumped into my car to drive the 12 miles to her location. Parking can be a time consuming problem but I was lucky to get a parking space. She didn’t have a phone so meeting up with her was a matter of her spotting me on the beach.

The afternoon wind was starting to cool things off and everybody was beginning to leave the beach. I’m sure she was wanting to get home as soon as possible. Looking at a big hole that her son had dug, I began to swing my detector there. Boom! First signal was the cellphone. 

She was happy to be able to get on the road with her cellphone which is a necessary item in most of our lives today.

Laguna Beach Skimboarder Loses Gold Wedding Ring in Surf … Found and Returned by RingFinder

*** Nick was skimboarding in a cove at Laguna Beach, CA. when his gold wedding band came off his finger and disappeared into the surf. Skimboarding is a board sport performed on the steep wet sandy slope in shallow surf as the wave recedes. This would give us a good chance to find the ring at the next low tide.

Nick had questioned me about his chances to find the ring if he took a rented metal detector to search for it himself. He felt it couldn’t be that difficult to use a metal detector. I explained to him that rental metal detectors are usually effective in salt water sand. Also, it is not practical to learn how to operate a metal detector while trying to find something as important as his wedding ring.

I made arrangements with Nick and his wife Ami to meet me at the location. I had a simple pulse induction metal detector that I could let him use while the both of us searched the 12:30am low tide. I even had an extra sand scoop that is important if you are trying to retrieve a target.

After giving Nick and Ami a quick lesson, we took off on our separate grid searches. I could see them struggle when they had to dig the few targets they did find. Nick did learn that the metal detector was not so easy learn. After about 40 minutes  my detector got a great signal outside the zone that Nick believed his loss had  happened. 

When I scooped the ring they were 100 feet from me. Walking back to the couple , I asked Nick if he thought the ring could be further out. Then I held the scoop with his ring in it for him to see. He and Ami were amazed and gave me the “Oh My God “ salute. They are a beautiful couple. It was a pleasure to help them out.

They were very grateful for the help and it was a pleasure to help them. These searches are successful because they didn’t waste time trying to find it by hand. They called me in a timely manner.

*** Adam is a lifetime resident of Newport Beach, CA. He was playing football with friends on the beach when his platinum wedding ring slipped off his finger into the dry sand. He knew from past experiences that it was his chance to find it was almost impossible, so he didn’t waste time searching.

Adam got on the internet and found my information on TheRingFinders directory. I met him on the beach soon after he called. We were lucky that he had marked off the spot where the ring came off his finger. Searching a football field area can be challenging. A short grid search turned up Adam’s platinum wedding ring in the scoop. Adam had to meet a friend so he was able to make it to his appointment without a delay. 

Another successful recovery because he called in a timely manner and he had the general area marked out.

Unexpected Wave Washes Cellphone into the Sand at Salt Creek Beach, Dana Point, CA.

**** I received a call, asking for help to find a cellphone that was lost in the sand at Salt Creek Beach, Dana Point,CA. Saagar and his wife had driven from Los Angeles to enjoy the day day at the beach. All Los Angeles beaches were closed because of the pandemic.

The surf was very violent that day and they had set up their blanket and chairs back away from the wet sand. After a couple hours they were surprised by a rouge wave that came up to wash all their belongings all over the area. His cellphone phone couldn’t be found. It definitely had to be buried in the sand. 

This happened in the late evening, making it more difficult to search. The loss happened way up the high side of the beach, so the phone didn’t get pulled into the ocean. They returned the next morning to have a frustrating two hours of searching by dragging their fingers through the sand.

I was called and after having to park more than a mile away, I was able to walk to their location on the beach.  It didn’t take much time  to find the phone just outside the area they marked out for me. It was amazing how deep the phone had sunk into the fine soft sand. (Probably 4 to 5 inches deep)

It’s always interesting to see the surprised reaction of the people when they realize how close they were to finding their lost item. The important thing is the all important cellphone was found and still working.
