Brian lost his custom made wedding band over a year ago while doing road maintenance on his lake lot he told me he took off his ring and placed the ring on the back bumper of his truck while he was spreading gravel, and of course he forgot about the ring and drove away he then realized his ring was missing and asked if I could find the ring.
I had two little helpers to help me locate the ring and within ten minute we found the ring buried under two inches of gravel great recovery Saydee and Reese.
Studland Beach in Dorset is a popular destination for holiday makers and day visitors just like Richard Meredith from Hampton Court, London.
As with many people visiting beaches, the combination of Sand Castle making, throwing Frisbees and sun tan oiled fingers- the risk of losing a ring is rife. We all know how hard it is to find anything dropped in the sand and the more you search the deeper it falls.
This is just what happened to Richard when he felt his ring slip off. The more he dug, the deeper it sank. He waited patiently for me to arrive but was reunited with his ring in a matter of seconds.
Richard kindly made a donation to the Margret Green Animal Charity.
I received an e-mail from Mandy F. asking if I might be able to help her find her engagement ring that she lost in the surf on Saturday during her Bachelorette party. In her e-mail she stated they stayed in North Myrtle Beach but the resort she mentioned was located in Myrtle Beach. I e-mailed her back asking her to call me so I could get additional details and confirm whether the resort she had been staying at was in Myrtle Beach or North Myrtle Beach. While I was waiting for her call, Matt Fry TRF Myrtle Beach called and asked if I had seen the listing on Craigslist about a lost engagement ring in North Myrtle Beach. After some discussion we concluded that my e-mail and the Craigslist ad was one in the same lost ring. Shortly after we hung up, Mandy called and gave me all the details which included the address for the resort which ended up being in Myrtle Beach (Matt’s area).
I called Matt back and we arranged to meet and do a combined search. We worked about 2 hours doing both north/south and east/west grids and leap frogging each other working our way north along the beach. In Mandy’s description of her location she said she was staying in one of the resorts but when her mother, friends and her went out to the beach they moved farther south because of the large crowds behind her resort. Unfortunately there were 3 or 4 resorts in a row that were associated with each other and had the same name in some variation. As a process of elimination we wanted to make sure we covered as much as we could before the tide came in and hampered our search areas plus it started pouring down rain. As Matt was moving ahead of me he was working the surf line with the incoming tide and I saw him walking up the beach with a scoop of sand, look at me and nod his head, I knew instantly that he had the ring. He had the ring cleaned off by the time I got to him. Matt and I stopped for a late lunch and called Mandy. She was ecstatic and couldn’t believe we had found it. She said she thought it was lost forever. I took a picture of her ring and sent it to her and got the following text back “Omg!!!! That’s my baby, God bless you so much!!!! You guys are truly Angels”. How can it possibly get any better than that, getting someone’s treasure back to them. Wow!!!
I’m putting the ring in the mail tomorrow so she can get it in time for her wedding in less than 2 weeks.
Mandy and James, Matt and I wish you the very best on your future and pray all your dreams come true.
Matt, as always you came through again. Many thanks for your help on this one and getting the job done!!!!
Please call a member of TheRingFinders.com directory as soon as possible after losing your valued treasure so we can get it back to you where it belongs.

On Thursday, April 14th, I made contact with Joseph D. after receiving a referral that he had lost a very sentimental Crucifix and gold chain the previous weekend. I found out Joseph was down on a mini-vacation with other students from Wake Forrest and lost his item in about a 50 ft radius from the beach access ramp.
I arrived about 6pm and did a grid search for 3.5 hours with no luck finding the crucifix, although I found a ton of “items” that the college students had left behind. I showed up again on Friday about noon to see at least 300 plus students from Virginia Tech having their little vacation in exactly the same spot, so I went back home. By 5pm I figured most of the students were probably off the beach so I headed back to another ton of “items” on the beach. Luckily I ran into a couple who asked me the typical questions about metal detecting and I told them what I was there for. The female spoke up and said that someone from their group had found a crucifix Thursday afternoon, what’s the chances, uh?? I found out a student by the name of Chris had possession of the crucifix and the male of the couple text him to come to the beach. Chris showed up in about 5 minutes and I matched it against a picture that Joseph had sent me. Perfect match!! Chris agreed to turn it over to me after he made sure no one in his group had lost it and that we’d talk the next day. About 12:30 on Saturday I get a text from Chris that no one in his group had lost the crucifix and he’d turn it over. I had taken a picture of the crucifix the day before and sent it to Joseph letting him know about the situation which he didn’t have a big problem with. So after Chris gave me the crucifix I called Joseph and told him I’ve got it and it’ll be in the mail on Monday to his house. He was ecstatic!!!
Fast forward to this weekend when Joseph finally made it back home from college and had the crucifix back in his hands. Unfortunately his gold chain wasn’t found but he had the thing he wanted the most.
Joseph, best of luck to you and thanks for trusting in me to find your crucifix.

I received a call on my way home from work inquiring about my lost ring recovery service. He explained that his fianc’e had lost her diamond engagement ring on the beach a few hours ago and although they knew it was right around where they were sitting on the beach the sand had made it impossible to find. I told them I would be at their location in about 2 hours and do my best to get it back for her. Upon arriving onsite I was greeted by their very nice and appreciative family who was just so interested and amazed at my service.
Arriving at the spot on the beach where she had lost the ring when she took it off to apply sunscreen and forgot to put it back on when she got up and it disappeared into the sand I turned on my White’s Beach Hunter id metal detector and immediately got the signal i was looking for when I took the first swing on the sand! Again they were completely amazed at my gear and service and willingness to help people. I explained to them that it really is an amazing feeling to seeing the smiles on the faces of the people who feared their cherished items were lost forever. Another great day! Another great recovery!
