08/17/2014 Lost Ring Lake Conroe, Texas (Recovered)

I was contacted by Katie on Saturday regarding her husband’s Lost Wedding Ring in Lake Conroe. Katie said she located me on The Ring Finders directory and wanted to know if I could assist her in recovering her husband’s wedding ring. Katie said the ring was in about 4 foot of water off the dock behind their residence on Lake Conroe.

An excerpt from our communications on Saturday.

Hi john…its Katie Harris. I spoke to you regarding my husband’s ring that I lost off of our boat dock. So mad at myself. He had his original ring stolen, and we just replaced it a week ago…and now I lost it!!

I asked Katie some details about the location and she was able to provide very descriptive information on the search location. (water depth, bottom conditions –mud, sand or sludge) and whether there was public access to the area to determine the urgency in our recovery efforts.

Katie had been cleaning out her pool skimmer baskets and tossing the leaves and pine needles into the lake. Katie had put on her husband’s wedding ring earlier as a reminder to take it to the jewelry store.

I asked Katie to send me some photographs of the dock and the area she believed the ring had been dropped in the water.

Katie sent me the following photographs of the dock and search area.

I actually measured…it dropped about 48 inches out at the angle i drew from boat dock-Katie

 

I made arrangement with Katie to be at her residence the following morning. The plan was to meet with her son Tyler at the residence Sunday morning. I arrived around 10am Sunday morning and meet with Tyler who walked me through the events that led to ring being lost.

I was thinking this was going to be a very fast recovery as the perceived area to be searched was very small. I set out with the At Gold and found the bottom to be relatively clean of signals.  I worked the search area several times with negative results. I pushed the search area out a little further thinking the ring flew a little farther than Katie might have thought. I hit a couple of promising targets, but they were not the missing ring.

I closed in tighter on the search area, and started working under the dock were Katie had been standing and tossing the leaves. Bingo, I hit the ring right next to the edge of the dock, it was  on one of the piers footings.

I was glad to find the ring, I knew it meant a lot to Katie and her husband.

A Wedding Ring Lost 4 years ago in Lake Livingston, Texas (Recovered)

 

07/22/2014

I received a call from Jane regarding her husbands lost wedding ring in Lake Livingston. Jane said her husband had lost his ring off the dock at her parents house on Lake Livingston a little over 4 years ago, She said his birthday was coming up and she was hoping we could find the ring and she could surprise him on his birthday. I asked Jane some additional details about the search and received the following photographs of the search area. Arrangements were made to meet on 07/26/2014 Saturday morning to search for the lost ring. I arrived early Saturday morning and Jane walked with me to the dock and pointed out the area needing to be searched. Jane explained how the ring had been lost and pointed out where in the water she believed the ring may have landed when it came off her husbands hand.

The search area water depth was between 4 and 5 feet deep in most areas.

 

The bottom was a thick gumbo mud and sifting the scoop after finding a target was an impossible task. Jane’s brother John assisted in laying out a tarp on the dock were every scoop containing a target was dumped. John used one of my pin-pointers and sifted through the mud hoping to uncover the ring.

A little over an hour into the search, I pulled up another target and sitting right on top of the mud in the scoop was the missing ring.

Metal Detecting Punta Cana Dominican Republic

One of our sponsor at “The Ring Finders” is Anderson Detector Shafts (www.andersondetectorshafts.com) a provider of great metal detecting equipment.

A few months back they sent me a “Test and Evaluation Unit” a travel shaft for the Minelab Excalibur II. I have just recently had the opportunity to use the shaft for one of its intended purposes (traveling). I made a trip over to the Dominican Republic this month for a little R and R and decided to pack up the Excalibur and the new Anderson travel shaft.

As you can see from the photo the Excalibur and the travel shaft packed up nicely into the bottom of a medium sized suit case, I used one of the more modern style suit cases with the hard exterior shell to ensure some protection for the equipment.

The Excalibur and travel shaft made the trip there and back buried in the suit case with no problems. I spent a few hours playing around on the beach in Punta Cana which was surprising clean with very few targets.  I had a small following of locals who seemed truly fascinated by my ability to pull money out of the earth LOL. I would often with out really looking at what I found throw it to the onlookers. It must have always been something good, because big smiles often followed after they examined their treasure.

Anderson has just recently sent me their newest Carbon Fiber Detector Shaft, which has three configuration options

Scuba Shaft, Over and Under, a Long Shaft.

With that said, the above pictured Minelab Excalibur Travel Shaft is looking a for a new home within “The Ring Finders”

Send me an email if you can put this detector shaft to work, and I will do a lottery drawing of those who respond and ship you a slightly used

Anderson Excalibur II Travel Shaft.

Lost Diamond Wedding Ring Lake Livingston, Texas

Received a call from Mike in Kingwood, Texas regarding his wife’s lost Gold Wedding Ring. Mike reported while swimming in Lake Livingston his wife lost her ring. Mike said he was pretty sure she lost the ring on a sand bar in the lake where they had spent most of the day.

I made the trip with Mike up to the lake and spent 6 hours in the water with the new (replacement) Excalibur II and could not find the ring, The plus, the Excalibur II ran like a champ, and the pictured ring was found while searching for my clients ring.

Men’s 14kt Gold wedding Band (owner unknown)

It was an unfortunate out-come, but Mike was very grateful for the extraordinary effort.
