Monday afternoon I listened to a message on our answering machine from Johanna stating that she had just lost her engagement ring in a park. I called her back but had to leave a message as she did not answer. Today, Tuesday, I called her back again and this time she answered. Johanna stated that both her and her mother in law had rented metal detectors and searched the park for a couple of hours and they did not find the ring. She then stated that she had given up hope on getting her 3 carat black diamond set in white gold ring back. I asked her if she would like me to give the search a try. She was a bit hesitant but eventually agreed to my searching for ring.
About an hour and a half later I was at the park and Johanna arrived a few minutes later. She showed me the areas she had spent some time at and explained what was happening when her ring went missing. Then her and a few friends went to grab some lunch leaving me to do the search. Before she had made it to the restaurant I had recovered her ring, it was in an area that was heavy with pull tabs and other trash. I sent Johanna a text picture of her ring, I can not put on this site her reaction but let’s just say she was very happy and surprised that I had found it.
I made my way to the restaurant that Johanna and her friends were at to return her ring. The smile on her face when I gave her ring back was amazing.

Easter Sunday morning Ben was preparing his backyard for the upcoming Sunday dinner and gathering. Games were played that afternoon and plenty of quality family time was had in the back yard. Soon after the festivities ben noticed that his platinum wedding band was missing. He and his wife Anna spent time searching the back yard visually but they had no luck finding his ring. Ben then borrowed a metal detector from a friend and searched the yard, once again luck was not with them. Anna went to her LinkIn account to get rid of some of her notifications and she noticed a notice from my profile of a work anniversary since we had worked together years ago. She contacted me stating their situation, we quickly formed a plan for me to search their yard as I was leaving on vacation in a couple of days.
When I arrived Ben showed me around the yard and explained what had happened the morning and early afternoon of his rings disappearance. I grabbed a few detectors from my truck and began my search pattern. On my first pass of the yard I heard a good signal from my metal detector, I looked down and there was the shinny outline of a ring hidden amongst the grass. I placed a screwdriver with its tip over the ring and went to get Ben. When I knocked on the door Ben was a bit taken aback by my quick return to the house. I told him to look at the blade end of the screw driver, it took him several seconds to see his ring laying in the grass. He was very happy to get his ring back and Anna was in tears. They had had a baby just six days prior so her emotions were running pretty high.

Nate was playing Frisbee in a park near downtown Denver. He decided to tie his Tungsten Carbide ring to the draw string of his shorts. After one quick sprint to catch the Frisbee he felt for his ring and it was already gone. All of his friends spent some time searching for his ring with no success. Since I had found this ring for him a couple years before he knew to send me a text message. We made arrangements for me to meet him that evening to search for his ring. I arrived a few minutes early and began my search but I wasn’t quite in the proper area. Upon Nate’s arrival he showed me the location he was at when his ring went missing. After just a few minutes of searching, Nate had his ring back.
