An epic ring call with an amazing recovery in a cobble rock beach at Emerald Cove, Catalina Island, CA. four days after lost in the ocean. Catalina Island, sometimes known as the Island of Romance but this time it was not too romantic when Jacky lost her wedding ring at the island.

Dave Shenbaum’s sisters-in-law Jacky believed that her diamond wedding ring came off as she lifted her two small children into a shore boat. She was standing in knee deep water with a gravel type beach at Emerald Cove. Although she didn’t feel the ring slip off, she knew it was missing after getting into the dingy.

Dave put on his dive mask to search for over an hour to no avail. He knew he was not equipped with the right tools to ring a ring in this environment. This happened Friday and they returned to Redondo Beach the next day 26 miles across the channel. They had resolved that the ring was lost forever.

Dave, Manhattan Beach Fire Captain and lifeguard has used TheRingFinders to help people find valuable items for their owners. He contacted me Sunday at 4:30pm, asking if I’d be willing to go over to the island on his friend’s skiff or another larger boat.

We checked the tides and weather forecast to choose the best time to get to the site. Monday seemed the best but only allowed us a few hours to prepare.

I have never met Dave Shenbaum or Joe Bark retired fireman and I was a little apprehensive about jumping in a boat that I have never seen with strangers to cross the Catalina channel.

We met at the next morning to take the Joe’s ocean skiff to Emerald Cove. It would be the fastest and most maneuverable getting us to shore. Everything went like clock work we were almost like Navy Seals on a mission. I was on a small boat with trained first responders that have been on many rescues and other emergency situations. Can’t ask for better partners than that.

After an hour and fifteen minutes we landed on the gravel beach. Dave and I went ashore where he showed me his landmarks to where the loss occurred. It was low tide so I started at the waterline gridding parallel along the beach. Halfway on the third pass after I had dug two trash targets the next signal was the beautiful white gold diamond wedding ring. We took a few photos at the location then jumped in the boat for the return trip.

Arriving back a Redondo Beach King Harbor four hours round trip, including our search and photo-op.  Steve and Jacky Shenbaum met us at dockside not knowing we had already recovered her wedding ring. Dave held out his hand with a few pebbles from the beach and her ring. She did a quick double take then the tears of joy started to flow her husband Dave Shenbaum could not believe that his brother had set this recovery up and kept it a secret till he could surprise the both of them. This was definitely an epic ring recovery. I could not have done this without the help of Dave Shenbaum and Joe Bart two of Manhattan Beach’s finest.

iPhone, Credit Cards, and Driver’s License Found in the Water, Under the Sand at the Beach…Returned.

I was out metal detecting in the surf where the water is covering the sand, when I got a good signal. I dug, and dug, and out from under about 12 inches of wet water covered sand out pops an iPhone in an Otter Box case. On the back of the case was a sleeve with 2 credit cards, and a driver’s license. When I got home I cleaned the phone which looked in good shape, dried it off and plugged it in to see if it would take a charge. After a few minutes it did turn on, but I could not get in because it was locked. It had a date of 2 weeks prior, so I figured that is when it was lost.

I then took the bank card to my local branch of the same name and asked if they would contact the owner, and give them my number, so I could arrange to get everything back to them. They agreed to do that, and within 15 minutes I was talking to the mother of the person who had lost the phone with the cards. She said the address on the license was still good, and I told her I would get it in the mail right away. I just checked the tracking number, and it was delivered yesterday. Glad to be able to help!

Yasin emailed me about his lost car key. He lives on a second floor of an apartment building, and when leaving the home he dropped his car key. It hit the deck, bounced, and landed in the garden below. The garden was filled with 3 foot tall shrubs with a lot of dead ground cover under  them, He said that he spent about 3 hours looking for the key, and then decided to look for help. He asked if I could come the next morning, and we arranged a time to meet for the search.

When I got there Yasin met me and took me to the spot. The shrubs were tall, and very close to one another. I did the search slowly and meticulously without finding the key. I then went back and slowed the search down even more, and found the key right under where he thought it had dropped, buried under the dead undergrowth. He was very happy to have it back, and I was happy to help.

Blaine’s family is from Utah enjoying a day at Newport Beach. Their vacation took a bad turn when Blaine’s wife lost her wedding ring set in the sand. She had placed her rings in her purse while on the beach.

They were about 20 miles away the beach on their way to eat dinner when his wife discovered the ring set wasn’t in her purse. She assumed that the ring may have been pulled out of her purse when she removed her cellphone. They immediately decided to return to the beach to search for the lost wedding and engagement rings.

While driving back, Blaine’s daughter, Abby got online finding my contact information. I talked to Blaine agreeing to meet him at the location. When I arrived there were 6 or 7 people walking an area looking down. They waved me over to show me the general area. There was a little disagreement as to the location. Six people with six different ideas but I knew we were close enough to find the rings if they were actually lost there.

If you start in the right place it could be a fast recovery. If the grid search is slow and thorough eventually the lost item will eventually show up. ( if it’s there )  This time it took about 20 separate by 30 ft. passes till the white gold diamond wedding ring set was in the scoop. Abby posed for a photo with the prize. Sounds easy but this happened on the towel line. The next day the beach sifting machines would have got it mixed with other beach trash.

We all walked off the beach together and the family still had time to enjoy dinner at a nice restaurant. Also the vacation wasn’t upset by the loss of such an important sentimental keepsake. 

If you ever talk to someone that has lost wedding rings or other heirlooms, you will find that it bothers some people for years. I wish I could return all the rings I have found.

***** Bailey’s mother had put her rings and bracelets in her hand bag while she was at beach party at Huntington City That night while everyone was enjoying the camp fire, the hand bag was knocked off a table into the sand. Several pieces of jewelry were lost. 

Bailey’s mother was upset when she came to her home in Apple Valley, CA. Bailey and his friend got into their car to drive 100 miles back to the beach, leaving at 12 midnight. To top things off they were held up over two hours by a road closure on interstate 15. They arrived at the beach at 4 am. After two hours of searching the sand, someone one told them how to contact me. 

I received the call at 6:30 am. When I met them on the beach they were tired and frustrated. We were lucky enough to to find the last two missing pieces of jewelry. A gold high school ring and a gold bangle bracelet. We were very lucky that the beach cleaning equipment was being serviced and didn’t work that area of the beach that night.

**** Luke called me as I was stuck in traffic on one our famous freeways in Los Angeles, CA. His platinum wedding band flew off his finger into to the surf when he threw a football to his brother. He said, he had the area well marked but the tide was rising.

The tide was rising and I was not far away. The problem was traffic was so bad that it would be more than an hour till I could get to him. There were no other options. I assured him if I could get the location while he was still there, we still had a chance to find the ring even if I had to comeback at the next low tide.

When I arrived Luke and his friends were  directly in front of the location. One of Luke’s friends had actually stepped off 30 ft. to where he saw it land in the water. By now the waves were surging up the slope fairly powerful. I still go a great strong signal in knee deep water. Put my sand scoop in and retrieved Luke’s platinum wedding band. He was elated, as were all of us. Luke was happy that it was found before he took off for Salt Lake City the next morning.

One factor that made this a successful search was he had been standing in the surf while throwing the ball and he was actually throwing the ball towards the top of the beach, so it landed away from the deeper water. I guess we gained a little time before the tide took over the spot.

I was awakened this morning at 6:30 AM by a call from Jason, asking if I would be available to look for a lost ring. I began asking questions, and found out that the ring was lost the night before. It was his partner Angela’s ring. I then asked if the sand was smoothed out from the beach cleaning machines, and he told me that the machine did not go through the area they were in. I asked if he was sure, and he told me he was, because they had been on the beach through the night searching for the ring, he said it was very special to Angela. I asked, the whole night? He affirmed his statement, in which realizing it meant a lot to her, I jumped into my clothes, shaved and brushed my teeth, and was on my way.

When I got there Jason had me rouse Angela who had been resting in her car after a long hard night, and we walked out to where he was. I could see the sand of the whole beach smoothed over like a person dragged a 2×4 over the sand, and was a bit disheartened, until I got to where Jason was standing. I could see that the tractors were forced to go around the area in question, which gave me a vision of Jason facing down the County tractor like the lone man in Tiananmen Square facing down a tank. The area in question was not touched by the machines. It took about 5 minutes to find Angela’s ring which surprised them because they had spent so many hours looking for it. I found out that Angela’s late father, had designed and made the ring for her, and gave it to her before he passed away. I understood why she did not want to leave the site without her ring, it is priceless. She was so very happy and thankful, and I was happy to be able to help. What an awesome morning indeed!

Thomas called yesterday. He had been shaking out his clothes at the beach, when his ring slipped off of his finger and into the sand. It was gone immediately, and his search for it was futile. He had not left the area, so I told him I would be there as soon as I could.

When I arrived, Thomas was there waiting for me, and showed me what had happened. The area was not big, but there was a ton of metal in the sand which caused me to dig a lot of targets to be sure not to miss his ring. I worked the most likely area, digging everything that sounded possible, but his ring did not show up. I then started on the other side and received a good tone. It sounded so good in relation to the other tones I had been receiving that I told Thomas that this might just be his ring. I scooped the sand, shook it out, and in the scoop was a nice silver colored ring. I lifted it out and Thomas was amazed, it was his ring! He was so very happy to have his ring back, having only been married for 9 months. I feel very fortunate to be able to create such a smile. Fun day!

Mark called me about the loss of his wedding ring. He was visiting with friends on the beach, and throwing a football around, when going for a catch, he felt his ring fly off. It had happened earlier that day, so the possibilities of a recovery were high. I told him I would be there as soon as I could get there, and left immediately.

When I got there Mark met me, and took me to the area of the loss. He showed me what had happened, and where he believed the ring may have gone. I began my grid, and worked my way in the direction of the possible loss. I worked out about 8 passes with no ring, and decided to start working in the opposite direction. After 2 passes I received a good tone in the headphones. I scooped the sand, and in my scoop was one of the coolest looking wedding rings I have recovered. Mark and his wife have had these identical custom rings for 25 years, so this loss had great sentimental implications. I was able to give Mark his ring back, which really made his day. We were standing around talking after the recovery, when the 7.1 earthquake hit Southern California, and we felt like we were rocking and rolling, which made this recovery a very memorable event!

I received a call from Laura on 4th of July. She had lost her Cartier bracelet in the sand while playing with her children, and was distressed. I let her know that I would be there as soon as I could get there, I just asked that she would stay in order to help me locate the possible area of the loss.

When I got there Laura met me and showed me the area they had been playing in. She said the closure on the bracelet wasn’t functioning properly, and that is why it came off. I began my search, and after about 4 passes, pulled up the bracelet out of the sand. I was able to give her bracelet back, and received a big hug from Laura. She told me that her mother had given the bracelet to her, and she wanted to be able to give it to her daughter later on. It was nice to be able to reunite her with this family heirloom! Truly a wonderful 4th of July!
