Lost Keys In Sand .. Balboa Beach, CA. .. Found

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

Casey has moved to Newport Beach recently from the east coast. She had lost keys in the sand the night before contacting me.
Casey was very concerned and upset with herself because the keys were not hers, she had borrowed her cousin’s bike with the lock. If we couldn’t find the keys it was going to be more work and expensive to have somebody with the proper tools to come remove the lock.
I was very close to the location and we met about 30 minutes after she first contacted me. Casey was able to walk me very close to where she had been sitting  yesterday. It didn’t take long to locate the two keys on a single key ring. But! It could have been a failed search if I didn’t have my detector in the all metal setting. I get lazy sometimes because I do use discrimination setting at the beach where there are all types of metal trash. These keys and the key ring were basically ferrous metals that I could have missed with the wrong settings. It also helps to ask questions about what kind of metal the missing item is. We might of been able to use the magnet, but the metal detector is faster.
It was a quick successful search and a very happy lady that was smart enough to search the internet to solve her problem..

4 Tiffany & Co. Silver Rings Lost at Venice Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

Chris called this evening to ask my assistance in helping find a lost ring. I told him I would be glad to help, and I was on my way.

When I got to the beach Chris informed me that there were 4 rings lost, all Tiffany & Co. silver. His fiance’ Sarah had taken them off to apply sunscreen and put them on her towel. Forgetting she had done this, when they were ready to leave she picked up her towel and left. It wasn’t until they got to the car she realized her mistake. Chris and Sarah were about to head home to Sacramento, so instead of wasting time trying to search the sand themselves Chris did the thing he does well, and got on the internet for some ring finding research. He found me on The Ring Finder’s web page.

Chris led me to the area, and after talking to him and asking a few questions we both agreed the rings should be near where they were sitting, so I proceeded to begin my search there, and expand out. I think I made about 3 passes of my grid when I got a nice high tone (quarter sound) in my head phones. I dug the first ring in 1 scoop, scanned again and got the second ring. It ended up being one ring per scoop. She was so happy to have them back on her fingers. I just got a text from Chris on their 400 mile drive back home, who said that Sarah has been sleeping most of the way. I know she was able to relax, having her rings, that mean so much to her, rescued from the sea of sand they were lost in. Great day, more great smiles.

Palladium Wedding Ring Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

Yesterday evening I received a call from Brooke regarding the loss of her husband’s wedding ring at the beach, and wondering if I would be able to help them. I asked a few questions, and finding out they were pretty close told her I could be there in about 20 minutes. They had already left the beach after spending about 3 hours searching for the lost ring (I’m sure very discouraged), when they found me on the Internet, and agreed to go back to show me where the ring came off.

When I got there, I met Brooke (and their little one) who took me out to the area of the loss, where I met her husband Nick. Nick showed me the area which he had drawn out by lines in the sand; it was an area about 12-15 foot square. He showed me the exact spot he believed the ring came off, and I could see they had done a lot of digging there. Nick told me how he moved the sand he already searched through to another spot within the marked off area. I started my search, and when I reached the area that the sand had been moved to, I got a good solid signal in my headphones. I dug once and missed, I checked again and dug a second time, getting a nice silver looking ring in my scoop. I showed Nick and Brooke that I had found the ring to their surprise. Nick acknowledged that he must have thrown the ring over to the other area not knowing that he had it in his hands at one time during his search. After their 3 hours of searching, it took no more than 5 minutes on my part to reunite Nick with his token of commitment to Brooke. Great day, and great smiles all around.

Key Lost in Los Angeles, CA Park…Found and Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I was having lunch yesterday with my wife and son who we were fortunate to be able to visit with his busy college schedule, when I received a call from Nate about his key that he lost at his local park. Nate had been exercising, and left his key and phone in a specific spot in the grass so as not to lose them while running. When he was finished, he picked up his phone, and forgot the key. When he got home he realized the key was still back at the park and went back to search for it. He told me that he searched for about 4 hours, and was not able to find it. I told him that because I was with my family, I could meet with him in the morning today to do a search. I figured that if he could not find it with a thorough search that no one was going to happen upon it before I got there.

I met Nate at the park at about 10:00 AM , and he took me to the area where he left his phone and key. It wasn’t huge, and the grass was not very high, but just high enough to hide a small item such as a key. I grabbed my detector, and pin pointer, and checked every signal, some were deep, and some surface (bottle caps and such). After about 3 passes in the grid I got a good signal, looked down, and in the grass saw Nate’s key. I walked over to him asking a question about his key when I opened my hand to show that it had been found. He just could not believe it was still there, thinking that possibly a dog might have eaten it, or someone might have found it. This key was his house key, and was so important that he had spent 4 hours searching for it, and looking on the internet in hopes of finding a way to recover it, where he found me on The Ring Finders site. I am glad he was successful in his internet search, and that I was able to be a part of the operation; GREAT SMILE!

Nate sent the following:

Hey! It was nice meeting you as well and I thank you again for helping me out.

Yesterday (03/24/17) I lost my house key at the park and I searched 3-4 hours for it on my own and had no luck. I called Steve and he said he couldn’t make it out that day but tomorrow would be better. We agreed to meet the next morning and he was there on time. He asked me a few intelligent questions, and his patience was remarkable. The hardest part about finding the key was that it was not on a keychain and not uniquely designed, but it still only took him 15 minutes to find it! I really needed that key to get in and out of my house. He pretty much made my week by finding it, and I thank him for taking the time to help me out. He didn’t make me feel like I was wasting his time, and I could tell he enjoys his job and takes it seriously. Thank you Steve!

Small Battery Lost in Artificial Turf .. Huntington Beach, CA. .. Found

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

Barbara found me while searching the internet for metal detector rentals. She cares for retired greyhound racing dogs. One of her dogs had torn a toy that had three small button type batteries in it. She was concerned that one of the dogs had swallowed the toxic battery.
After taking the dog to the veterinary and spending a lot of money for X-rays. She was worried that the dog could still find the one missing battery and swallow it. Barbara explained that these dogs are almost like little kids, they chew on all kinds of objects.
We set up a time I could meet her husband at the house. He would have a sample battery to help me set up my detector. The area where the battery should be was all artificial turf, which sounded like it would be a simple search. Not so simple, this turf had many nails holding it in place. I started to adjust my settings on my metal detector but the little S.S. button battery was almost the same tone and ID number as the nails.
I had also brought a large magnet with me. Just before setting up my metal detector, I thought I might try dragging this 8″ magnet over the main search area. I picked a likely spot and with a little luck I heard a metal to metal sound (click), that turned out to be the missing button battery. (a first for me).
I carry this magnet to pull ferrous trash out of some messy search locations. It was just what I needed for this search. Barbara was so grateful, telling me this had worried for a couple days and now she could sleep better.
I like to say I will try anywhere and anything thing. One more example!

Wedding Ring Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

I had been at the market this Saturday afternoon, and just pulled up in front of the house about 1:00 PM, when I received a call from Mike who had lost his ring in the sand earlier in the day. He is on vacation from Michigan, and did not want to leave his token of love behind in California. I told him I would be there in 1/2 an hour, and got ready to go.

I met Mike at the location, and he took me out to the spot of the loss. We went over what he believed had happened to cause the loss, and I agreed with him that the ring should be in the immediate area. I set up and began the search, and got a couple of bottle caps, a pull tab and an old battery. After going over the area, I began a cross grid knowing that sometimes a ring can be on edge or turned in such a way as to not be able to find it in one direction, but able to find it if searched for in a perpendicular direction. During the third pass on the cross grid I got a good strong shallow signal, and reached down and plucked Mike’s ring from the sand. I asked Mike about his ring, type of metal, etc., and then opened my hand to show him what I had found. Needless to say, he was very happy, it was now about 2:00 PM. It took a little more than an hour from first call to recovery for me to bring a great big smile back on Mike’s face, and that what it is all about.

Mike sent this nice complement:

Hey Steve,

I hope all is well!  I wanted to thank you again for locating my wedding band this weekend.  I’ve included a testimonial below;  please let me know if I can make any changes!
I’m so thankful for the quick and expert help Steve was able to give me.  I was visiting my brother and a group of his friends for the weekend, and we had decided to visit the beach to enjoy the weather. I had absentmindedly placed my wedding band in the cup holder of my beach chair earlier in the day as I was playing volleyball and swimming.  As the sun moved, our group decided to pick up stakes and move to a different part of the beach.  It wasn’t until after we set up our new spot that I realized my wedding band was missing.  I ran back to the area where our group had previously been and searched frantically for 20 minutes.  Realizing I was probably in for a long day (or that my ring was gone for good), I found Steve online and gave him a call.
Steve’s response time was incredible.  I expected to wait for hours at the beach, but in 30 minutes I saw Steve with his equipment walking down the strand.  He asked me a few basic questions about where I thought the ring was, set up a search grid, and located it in about 15 minutes.  I was awestruck.
You can tell that Steve is a passionate craftsmen, and I’m sure this is what made finding the ring so simple for him.  As we wrapped up, I got a chance to pick his brain about how and why he does what he does.  You can sense that he has a deep understanding of his equipment and the right techniques for the job. More than that, though, Steve seems to have a mission.  You can tell that he gets a lot of joy from finding items that are priceless to those that hold them dear.
Don’t lose your wedding band.  If that happens though, call this man.  He will find what you lost, and put a smile on your face too.
– Mike Spiegel

Lost IPhone in Sand .. Long Beach, CA. .. Found

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

Lindsey had been on the beach the night before calling me. She and her friends were sitting in the sand enjoying the sunset and adult beverages. As they walked back off the beach, Lindsey realized that she was missing her IPhone 6+. It was dark and they couldn’t find it that night.
The next morning she borrowed her Mother’s phone which she set up the “Find My Phone App” .. After four hours of frustration she found my contact number after searching online for a metal detector and called me.
It was about a 20 mile drive that took about 45 minutes. We stayed in contact via cellphone. Lindsey was sitting on the beach worried about the possibility of losing all the information she had on her phone. We decided to not trust the GPS coordinates that didn’t seem to work for her. I grid searched the location where they had sat the night before. Then the place the app had directed her. Searched north of the location about 40 feet. She was positive that they had not been south of that spot.
Here is how it works. I told Lindsey that I wouldn’t be satisfied until I did a few more lines of my grid to the south. Yes!! About 25 ft. into the location where she said they had not been. One IPhone 6 that was not lost anymore. It happens more than I want to believe. Successful searches happen when you search just outside the box. If I ever search for a iPhone using the Find My iPhone app, I will start at the pinpoint coordinates and spiral out with my grid pattern.
Lindsey was a happy to have her phone back, but she had gone through a lot of emotional ups and downs that day. Especially when we were running out of location she had remembered she had been.

Lost Ring in Sand Dune .. Zuma Beach, CA. .. Recovered

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

I was actually just finishing up an unsuccessful search for a ring lost in Malibu when Dave called me. He had just lost a tungsten carbide ring in a dry sand berm ( mound ) 10 feet high.
After he described that he had been messing around on a sand dune, I asked him to be careful not to move too much sand as this could get the ring out of range of a metal detector.
I was only 7 miles away from Dave’s location and able to meet him within 30 minutes. Another 10 minutes with my XP Deus metal detector on the steep hill of sand I got a good signal almost on top of the mound. A quick dig with my scoop and there was Dave’s ring.
We were lucky that I was in the area. 4pm on a week day is peak traffic time on Los Angeles freeways. It would have taken a couple hours, maybe three hours to drive the 70 miles from the other side of town.

Lost Hearing Aid in Grass .. Mission Viejo, CA. .. Found

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

Jim called me, inquiring if my metal detector could locate a small hearing aid. My answer was, it depends on the location and the type of hearing aid. It would be necessary to meet at the location and I would need the other hearing aid or a spare battery.
Jim was sure he lost the hearing aid when he pulled a doggy pop bag from his pocket, where he had put his one and only hearing aid. It was a grassy area at a park which was a couple blocks from his home.
We met at the park and I was able to tune my XP Deus metal detector to get a reading from the small battery. The area was 20′ x 120′ with 2″ thick grass. The hearing aid was about the size of a cashew nut which made me think this would possibly be an eyeball find. Even though Jim had searched the evening before calling me, I know the lighting angle of the sun may make it easier to see at a different time of day.
I asked Jim to start at the opposite end of our search zone and I worked toward him. Twenty minutes into the search, Jim yelled at me, ” I Found It!” He was a happy man because it had just been repaired and he was upset at himself for carelessly putting it in his pocket with the plastic bag.

Wedding Ring Lost at Park in Playa Del Rey…Found and Shipped Back to Utah

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

Last Friday night I just happened to be looking at Craigslist when I noticed a post that was talking about a wedding ring lost not too far from where I live. The post said that the gentleman was leaving on a plane to go home, and could not go back and search for the ring, I also noticed that it had been recently posted, so I decided to get in touch with him to let him know I would try to help. I will let Nate’s testimonial about the loss and recovery tell the rest of the story.

Nate’s story:

I was skeptical that anyone could find my ring, but Steve is amazing and really came through for me!

So, on the last day of our recent vacation, while on a shuttle to LAX to fly back home, I realized my wedding ring was no longer on my finger. I was devastated and figured the ring I’d worn 18 years was gone forever. I wasn’t even sure where it had fallen off. I contacted the theme park and car rental agency without any luck. The next night, in a desperate “what do I have to lose” attempt, I searched the internet for help. I hesitantly placed a Craiglist ad in the “lost and found” section with a Google maps screen shot and address of the beach area we went to before flying back home. I offered a reward as incentive so if someone found it they might consider returning it to me instead pawning it. I was texted right away by a guy named “Steve” who was a member of “TheRingFinders.com” I figured he was probably a scammer. He called and left me a voicemail too – so I verified the website, and his phone number area code, which actually was from California. I called him back (Friday at 9:00pm) and I provided him some more details about where I thought I may have lost my ring near the beach. He was nice and sounded legit on the phone, and didn’t ask for any money from me. Steve went out right away, and within an hour (Friday at 9:52pm), he had recovered my ring and texted me a picture that looked like my ring. I was shocked and beyond happy! Ang and I couldn’t believe it – and so I asked him to provide a clearer picture of the front of the ring (the first was taken with a flash in the dark area where he found it). He sent a clear picture when he got home and it was definitely my ring! We arranged shipment, and a few days later, it is back on my finger as I type this message! I’m so grateful for Steve’s help. He is the real deal! So, if you ever lose a ring (or keys, or phone, etc) and need help – even from out of state – theringfinders.com might be a good place to turn for help (rather than hoping some honest person might see your ad on Craigslist like I did – I got lucky!)….. and if you lose something at the beach near LAX, call up my new found friend Steve – he is amazing!
