Lost Wedding ring in Rathdrum ID

  • from Spokane (Washington, United States)

Six Feet of water and a Muddy hay stack

I’ve worked hard in my career, I have dug post holes in 100 degree heat, I’ve cleaned up the foulest smelling liquid a human can produce, I’ve worked with people who hated life and loved making your life miserable. But floating in six feet of green murky water swinging a detector by the arm cup and trying to use a scoop without seeing where it was scooping has been the hardest job yet that I completely loved and would do for free for the rest of my life. I am 5’9” the spot where the ring went into the water was about 6’6”. So with the Excalibur fully extended and me holding on to the arm cup of the detector I searched for 2 hrs. I found a piece of a fishing reel, a cap off of a light bulb I think, a stinkin’ Lincoln, and most importantly Sky’s palladium wedding ring. First go at finding the ring only left me shivering and empty handed. But after the shivers went away and I got back in the water the next signal was the ring. Only problem was that I didn’t know that and I had to get it in the scoop. I had a strategy, though, I was setting the scoop in front of the coil and then scooping towards where I was floating. The third scoop was the ring and as I brought the scoop into view I saw the ring it was sticking out of the mud. I didn’t know for sure and after frantically swimming to shallower water I saw the ring in the bottom of the scoop. I looked up saw Sky looking at me so I gave him a thumbs up. I don’t think I have celebrated so hard since my kids were born. It was a needle in a muddy hay stack but by the grace of God and perseverance, a man named Sky has a story about how he got his lost ring back. Thank you for calling me Sky and thank you Chris for the directory that allows us to help people. It truly is the best job in the world like you say .


Lost Gold Ring in Mike Lake, Maple Ridge…Found

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I received a call from a young man the other day telling me that he lost a very special ring that was willed to him by a good friend who passed away a couple of years ago. He then went on to say that his friend hired me 3 years ago to find 4 huge gold biker rings that he lost at the work place…I knew right away who he was talking about and I remembered the search like it was yesterday. It’s not often you get a call to find 4 big gold rings! When I found them I remember how excited he was and what it meant to him.

I was sad to hear that JP passed and I was determined to help find this ring for his friend. The hard part was that it was lost in about 7-8 feet of water , the good thing about this search was that the young man knew where he lost it.

I used my custom made extra long handle scoop and with a big bucket on the dock I began the process of scooping the soft and muddy bottom. After 1 hour of dumping the mud into the bucket I heard the sweet sound of ”Clunk” in the bucket…This was even bigger then the 4 I found for JP years ago.

I was video typing the search and for some strange reason most of my footage wasn’t there???












I can tell you this…When it came out of the mud & dirt you could only imagine how good that felt for Matthew…Update I recovered the video footage!













Thank you very much for the generous reward!

I love my job!
