Lost Ring Jamaica Beach Galveston, Texas (Recovered)

  • from Sugar Land (Texas, United States)

Lost Ring in Jamaica Beach Waterway  Galveston, Texas (Recovered)

This is an excerpt from one of the correspondences from Kelly regarding the lost ring:

To recap…. The ring is a family heirloom passed down several generations and my eldest son (Ryan) was wearing it for his Rehearsal Dinner Thursday evening, prior to his Friday wedding.  It is a gold Knights of Columbus ring.

We were winding up a late-night Canal Cruise when the boys decided to engage in a bit of horse-play – toppling Ryan overboard.  The ring came off his hand immediately upon entry to the water.

Thank you so much for offering us some hope in what we felt was a despairing situation.

Kelley

After having received some very specific information and photographs from Kelly, I knew we would need some form of underwater grid to conduct an effective search. Knowing what the water visibility is like in most of the coastal canals, (zero visibility} some form of a reference is a necessity to stay on course underwater.

I am going to limit the text version of this story, as most of it was recorded an discussed on the videos attached to this post.

A few things not mentioned in the video was the water temperature was 72 degree and a after and hour and a half, I was pretty much at the end of my rope. You know when the cold is getting the better of you, light headedness and nausea seems to be the message .

We moved the newly named structure (Kelly Grid) to it’s third location, and I think everyone’s hopes of a recovery had started to diminish.

I started out on my final pass with a little less the 700 psi in the tank, knowing this one would have to be a quick run as air and time was running out. After having removed several aluminum cans, nail, and other trash on the previous runs, I hit a new and unique signal on the final leg of the last run. I reached down into about 4 inches of mud, and new immediately I had found the ring.

I surfaced a few minutes later and saw Kelly standing on the bulkhead next to the entry/exit ladder. I swam over informing her I was out of air, and tried to think of a way to surprise her on the recovery, but I was just simply to tired.

I held up the ring and the rest is history.

Lost Engagement Ring Houston, Texas (Recovered)

  • from Sugar Land (Texas, United States)

Engagement Ring Lost in the Backyard for a Month (Recovered)

04/11/2015

I was contacted by Brian from Houston regarding his wives lost engagement ring.  Brian said several weeks ago his wife was doing some yard work in the back yard of their home. He said at some point his wife had removed the gloves she had been wearing and her ring apparently came off her finger and landed somewhere in the backyard.

Brian said he had borrowed a metal detector several weeks ago and was unsuccessful at finding the missing ring. He said it was at that point he turned to the internet and tried to find someone to help. Brian said he had tried a few different key searches “”person who helps find lost rings” and after not having any real success suspended his search efforts.

Brian said a few days later he began searching the internet again and used a search phrase “ring finder” and the rest is history.

Brian called wanting to know if I was still helping people find lost rings, and of course the answer was YES.

I met Brian today at his residence and was shown the area needing to be searched. I started working the backyard in a traditional grid search, hitting several deeper targets. After completing a through sweep of the primary area, I expanded the grid, and hit the missing ring on the first pass outside of the initial search area.

Lost Wedding Ring Houston, Texas (Recovered)

Lost 24kt. Wedding Ring in Houston, Texas (Recovered)

I was contacted yesterday by Jayant regarding his lost 24kt wedding band in the Houston area. Jayant said while playing volley ball with his son in a park near the George Bush Park in Houston his ring flew off his finger. Jayant said he was throwing the ball overhand to his son when he felt his ring slip off his finger. Jayant said several hours of searching followed, but he and his family were unsuccessful at finding his missing ring.

03/31/2015

I met with Jayant this evening and was shown the area needing to be searched. It was very large field but Jayant had left some markers in the field knowing he would need to return to the exact location. “Smart thinking on his part”

With Jayden’s marker in place and after a quick rehearsal of the previous days events, we set out to find the ring.

The quick recovery was directly related to Jayden’s quick thinking of marking his location in the very large field. Way to go…

Post Tension Foundation Cable Locating Sugar Land, Texas

  • from Sugar Land (Texas, United States)

02/18/2015

I was contacted this morning by Cordell regarding assistance in locating the post tension cables in a concrete foundation. Cordell advised his daughters home was under renovation, and he was needing to confirm the location and existence of the post tension cables in the foundation.

I met with Cordell an hour later and observed the renovations of his daughters home in progress. Cordell said the foundation was being fixed-leveled and his was wanting to confirm the location of the existing post tension cables.

Once the first horizontal cable was located, pin-pointing the remaining horizontal and vertical cables at five foot intervals was quite easy.

A handheld TRX pin-pointer performed this function with ease.

Lost Ear-Ring Texas City, Texas (Recovered)

  • from Sugar Land (Texas, United States)

12-09-2014

I was contacted by Tony regarding his daughters lost 1/2 kt. diamond earring. Tony said the diamond earring had belonged to his wives grandmother and finding the missing one was imperative.

Tony said his family had been at his fathers house (Tony Jr.) in Texas City playing volleyball in his backyard. Aviana had gotten to close to the net, and the net pulled the earring from her ear. Tony said, Aviana stopped immediately after feeling the earring being pulled from her ear. Tony said the entire family searched for the earring in the grass, but they were unsuccessful.

Arrangement were made to meet (Tony Jr.-Dad) at his residence on Saturday afternoon to search for the lost earring.

12-13-2014

Arrived Saturday afternoon and met (Tony Jr.) at his residence in Texas City. Tony gave me a walk through of where they believed the earring had fallen after being pulled from Aviana’s ear. I noticed several fresh dug plugs (holes) in the ground. Tony said his son had borrowed a metal detector from a neighbor in an effort to find the earring.

Prior to the good news, Aviana and her mother Courtney arrived and were able to witness the recovery of the lost earring.

We were playing in a sand field and I felt it slip off my finger.  We spent 3 hours searching for it with no luck. Would you be available tomorrow (Sunday) to help me find it.

Alex

11/02/2014

I met Alex in the parking lot of the volleyball court today in the Galleria area of Houston. As I was gathering my equipment, Alex explained how he had spent three hours last night searching with no success. He said he gone to a nearby Home Depot and purchased a rack, a shovel, and a heavy duty screen to sift sand and he still couldn’t find his ring.

Alex said, later that evening his wife found my add on Craigslist, and followed my posted link to “The Ring Finders”

The search for Alex’s ring was quick, on my second pass I hit a really nice signal, and moments later Alex was holding his ring. Alex immediately called his wife to share the good news; it was very evident he was very happy to have his ring back.

Lost Wedding Ring Lake Lewisville, Texas

  • from Sugar Land (Texas, United States)

Lost Wedding Ring Lake Lewisville, Texas

 

October 2014

Received the following e-mail:

Subject: Wedding band lost in Lake
Hello,
I came across your website and was wondering if you could find my lost wedding band.  I see you are in Houston.  I live in the DFW area and lost my wedding band this weekend in Lake Lewisville.  I have the exact location.  It would require you to dive about 20-25 feet with scuba gear.  I only had it for two months and I am willing to pay you for your services.  Please let me know.
Thanks.
Richard

I contacted Don Wilson from The Ring Finders in Dallas and relayed the call information to him, and my interests in attempting a recovery. Lake Lewisville is in Don’s backyard and I knew he would know all the logistical aspects of the search location.

Don did all the ground work on this job, taking photographs of the search location, meeting with Richard at dock weeks prior, and making all the arrangement with the marina for our visit. Having the Dallas team present (Don and Ellen) and their son Tripp was the only reason this recovery attempt was even possible.

Don, Ellen, and Tripp thank you again for everything…

The dock in Lake Lewisville  (the search location)

The depth 23″ feet, and after the 12′ mark total blackness down to the bottom at 23′, the bottom a soft silt mud. Utilized a custom made PVC dive pole to mark the primary search location from the surface. Used a boogie board leash as a lanyard attachment to the PVC pole ensuring I would not drift off of the search location (essentially cave diving in total darkness). The dangers in these black water dives is becoming entangled in or under one of the boat lifts or dock while ascending back to the surface.

You can see from the photograph above, overhead obstacles where a significant obstruction, basically you had to work your way under the lift to descend to the mark.

Now for the downside, after one hour and ten minutes of bottom time, I could not find that missing RING. The bottom of the boat slip at 23′ provided its own challenges, laden heavy with scrap material from the docks construction, and other large miscellaneous metal items made the search a real challenge.

The two lawn chairs above were fastened together with a cable lock and were an unexpected find at the bottom. I worked the bottom with a handheld Vibra-Tech 730 sifting through 4-5 inches of mud pulling up targets.

Large pieces of iron, cut pad locks, small nails and bottle tops were among the assortment of recovered items.
