HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Got to witness an amazing find today. A family was heartbroken over the loss of a woman’s engagement & wedding rings, which were not only monetarily valuable but more so sentimentally valuable. I couldn’t believe how quickly John recovered these items on the shoreline after a day on rough waves. He really knows what he’s doing. Job very well done!!!!
My Ringfinder partner ( Curtis) was contacted about a ring lost in a old lake near by us. He called to see if I could dive it. After alot of checking we put together a plan. Honored to have 2 members of TRF not only come but helped in this return.
There was no visibility at all here so I had to dive blind, best way for me is close me eyes. 20 plus min on the bottom of a muck filled lake, 30 pieces of metal that sat 18” deep in (?)
After cleaning what I could got one last faint signal, reaching though 18” of feels kinda like clay, I feel something on my baby finger so I keep pushing to hard pack, oh my I think I got it as I hold it tight in my fist. Cant see so gota go up. Rest of story on 10 News.
Return was done live on our local news
Thanks to Curtis for the call, Stan and Curtis for their help. Its what we do.
James and Meagan were walking on the bridge at the Riverwalk in Wilmington, DE when his ring slipped off his hand and landed in the marsh. The couple, who was just married three weeks ago, searched for the ring for a few hours with no luck. They found fellow Ring Finder Dave Milstead online who was not available for the day, so Dave contacted me. I met the couple at the Riverwalk and found the band four inches deep in the mud after a quick search.
Now that’s a beautiful sight! Searching a section of beach for a mens wedding ring lost over 2 weeks ago and I get a screamer hit from my White’s TDI Beach Hunter PI metal detector. I look down and there’s the ring washed out of the sand laying on the surface just waiting for me! You don’t see that often,Awesome!
I received a call from a woman whose husband had lost it in the sand while playing with the kids weeks before and thought it was lost forever. But they had seen my Facebook page NJ Lost Ring Finder and figured why not give it a try? They were very happy they did! I met up with the very grateful couple a few days later for the return. Another happy customer! Recovery #122
I received a message from a girl whose mom had lost her diamond wedding on the beach the day before. Although they were unable to meet me the following day at the beach,she was able to give me some details as to the approximate location according to landmarks.
I arrived early the next morning just before sunrise and noticed a lifeguard as she described and began my grid pattern search of the area with my metal detector. Although I searched the area and beyond for hours I had no luck locating the ring but did find a large amount of coins and trash items so I was confident that another detectorist had not found it before me but had to call it a day as the daily crowds were arriving. I messaged them letting them know I did not find it but would return the next day to try again,
I decided for the second search I would use my new White’s TDI Beach Hunter PI metal detector which not only detects deeper in the sand but also is excellent at recovery smaller items or offset items like a ring on its side in the sand. I searched most of the area as the day before and found more coins and trash but no ring so I started searching the way off the beach to the stairs and started digging more signals. Just as I was going to throw in the towel one of those signals turned out to be her diamond ring! When I called and told her I found it up by the stairs she was surprised as she really thought it was in the other area but you just never know? We meant a couple hours later for a very happy and thankful return. Another happy customer! Another great day of metal detecting!
I received a call from a guy asking for my help finding his gold ring he had lost while playing volleyball with friends a few days ago. I was able to meet with him a couple hours later at the park and he showed me the court he had been playing on. He had been on both sides of the net so I began my grid pattern search on one with my White’s V3i and 6 x 10″ coil which is perfect for these types of hunts. Having no luck on the first side I moved onto the other and about half way through I got a nice signal in the gold range. I scooped up some sand and there was his ring! He was watching with his family and when I held it up stating I found it they were very happy and grateful for my help thanking me and saying how much the ring had meant to him. Another great recovery! Recovery # 119
Heather sent me a text message that her daughter had lost her ring at the beach the previous evening. Shortly after receiving her text, I headed to the beach to begin the search. One of Heather’s friends was at the location with the young lady and showed me the area to begin the search. Within minutes, and after Heather arrived, I was able to find the ring. Heather’s friend could believe I found it!
I received a call from a woman who had contacted the Avalon Police department in hopes they could help her to locate her lost diamond and gold earring she had lost on the beach entrance way the night before. They passed on my information to her as I had done many successful recoveries on the beaches over the years. We agreed that we would meet the following morning at the entrance. On site she explained how she had lost it while taking pictures with girlfriends and was sure the earring was in a small area of the sand. I decided to use my White’s V3i metal detector with a small coil for the job as it is very sensitive to smaller items like earrings. I was able to use her matching earring to compare the audio/visual signal on my detector and after a couple of minutes of searching I found the missing earring in the sand. The beautiful earrings were once again a set and a very happy customer was able to enjoy the rest of her vacation with friends.
I received a call from a guy who had lost his gold wedding ring of 44 years of marriage on the beach during his morning swim. he stated that he had taken the ring off and put it in his hat on his T shirt on the beach while swimming. After swimming he picked up the shirt and hat but forgot about the ring inside and it disappeared into the sand. Fortunately his daughter did a quick internet search and also checked with the beach patrol and came up with my information. A couple hours later I was greeted by his wife at the beach house and we walked up to the beach location. By now the beach was busy and I asked for the client to remove their chairs and towels from the area to begin my search. After about 10 minutes my metal detector sounded off and the ring was in my scoop! An immediate applause was given by the onlooking beach crowd and the very happy couple of 44 years marriage. Another happy customer!
I received a call from a gentleman who had lost his white gold wedding ring in the surf while playing with his kids while on vacation in Ocean City. He stated that he lost the ring the day before and actually saw it fall off his finger but couldn’t grab it before it disappeared into the sand & waves. Quickly thinking he took some quick notes as to nearby landmarks,time of day and depth of water where the loss had taken place and drew a detailed map in hopes of returning and finding the ring. Arriving onsite at low tide we reviewed the map and setup a search area. I started my grid pattern and after digging a few coins and trash items but no ring I began to get a bit concerned but continued on. Then his brother in-law arrived and stated he felt we were off a little in our search area so I started working my way towards the other area. Within a few grid searches I received a nice signal on my detector and called them over saying “This sounds good and is probably your ring” I scooped out some sand and brushed the pile with my foot and out rolled his ring Lol! They were amazed not only that I found it but I called it! An instant sense of relief had come to the owners face as it was putting a real damper on the family vacation and now could go show his family that we found it. Back to having a great time as planned. Another great recovery! Recovery # 109
