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.

After discovering the Ring Finder website, Gerard and his wife Kim contacted me about looking for his wedding ring that slipped off his finger into the Gulf waters off Sanibel Island near the lighthouse. Gerard explained that the ring was very important and sentimental to him and his family. So after some phone conversations and text messages were exchanged, my wife and I came up with a plan to search for his ring.
Since neither Gerard or Kim would be at the location the day we looked for it, I asked Gerard to provide a map/diagram of the area he thought he lost it. Equipped with the map and our Minelab Excalibur metal detectors and scoops, we began our search.
The two of us searched for over over 2 1/2 hours before I finally saw Gerard’s ring in my scoop. As soon as we returned to the vehicle, we texted a picture of the found ring for Gerard and his family to see.
Arrangements were then made to meet an ecstatic Gerard and his daughter the next evening and return the ring.
Thank you for contacting us through The Ring Finder metal detecting service website–brings us great joy to reunite people with their lost items. Thank you for the generous reward as well.
