If you’re looking for a metal detector in the Miami Beach area because you lost something like a ring, earring, necklace, give me a call, LOUIS, 305-608-1870. I run a metal detecting service and can come out and find it for you. In the pictures below, Ray lost his Platinum wedding band on the beach and after looking for it for a while, he found my information on the internet and I was able to go out and find it for him in a few minutes.
Hunter and Ashley are two of the nicest people you could ever meet. That probably saved their ring, because I’m not going to lie, I almost passed by this one. Ashley had reached out to me online Saturday after the Blue Angels show and explained that while they were on the beach with thousands of other spectators, Hunter’s ring had come off in the sand. They had scoured the area but unfortunately couldn’t find it. I told them that I would be out that way in the water the next day and I would take a look. Fast forward to the next morning and my Father-in-law Tom and I were way later getting out there than we had planned while we decided if the weather was going to hold. When we pulled up I walked down to the area with my land machine and I could see 7 people with detectors within 100 yds of the area. To make matters worse, the beach machine that rakes the sand for debris had already covered the area. I talked myself into believing that the ring was gone and walked back to the car to get my water machine. By the time I got down to the water to join Tom, my conscience was eating at me. I told him I was going to run back down there anyway and take a look so I could at least say I tried. On the way, I noticed that a lot of the detectorists didn’t have the same caliber of equipment and their technique left a bit to be desired. I started to feel like maybe there was a chance after all. Sometimes I really feel like God will put you where he wants you if you will listen and obey. Sure enough, I didn’t make 3 passes and I got a nice gold tone. I reached down with the scoop and pulled out Hunter’s ring. They came by my house later in the day and I got to meet them and see their happy smiles in person. The hugs alone made the search all worth it. Congrats to you both.
Found it! White gold rosary lost on the
beach yesterday in LBI (Beach Haven).
Funny thing is I found his wife’s
wedding ring last year when they were
on vacation! So they made the call and
I got it done!
It’s always been neat how this hobby of mine brings me together with people that end up having so much in common with me, regardless of where they come from. This time it was with Micah and Brooke who were in town from Louisiana for Micah’s brother’s graduation. It just so happened that my family have also been celebrating my daughter’s graduation on the same day. Brooke called me early Saturday morning and let me know that she and Micah had been at the beach the afternoon before and Brooke had taken off her rings and laid them on the towel. When she got up she popped the towel and only later realized that both rings had gone flying. When they realized what had happened, they came back and searched everywhere. Miraculously they were able to find the wedding band but couldn’t find the engagement ring anywhere. Brooke was distraught and they even went and purchased a metal detector. They quickly learned that an average machine just won’t work right on our beaches. Lots of tears were shed until luckily Brooke’s mom did some internet research and found me. They stayed up reading my stories until they trusted me enough to reach out and see if I could help. I am very glad that they did. We spoke that morning and agreed that it would be that evening until we would be done with all the graduation festivities. My wife came with me (she’s my lucky charm) and we met Micah and Brooke on the beach with only about 30 minutes left before dark. I consoled them both and told them not to worry that I was pretty good at searching even in the dark. We were a little worried because they weren’t exactly sure where they were the day before and overnight the tide had come way in and a lot of the beach was now covered in saltwater and seaweed. I told them that if it was still there, I would find it. This turned out to be a really large search and I methodically gridded out the areas as my wife kept them from being too worried. I finally came back and asked them both to pick a direction because it was definitely not in that area. When Brooke picked right and Micah picked left I said a little internal “uh oh” but started towards the left because I was closer to it. My favorite part of this story is that Brooke said after a few more passes is when she was starting to lose a little faith so she bowed her head to pray. That was about the exact same time that down the beach I asked God that if it was in his will, would He please put me where he wanted me. Sure enough only a few steps later in the wet sand and seaweed I got a perfect gold tone. As I pulled out her beautiful engagement ring I turned and headed towards them sitting on the beach. It took a little convincing in the dark that I really had found it until finally Brooke jumped up and saw it and gave me a huge hug. 😃 I am so glad I was able to find your ring and I wish you both many happy years together. God bless!
I received a call from Tomas about a cross he lost. He explained it was a huge sentimental item, and it was irreplaceable. We agreed I would head there early the next morning. He gave me all the information, including the marked location on the phone GPS. With that I figured it would be a simple recovery. Upon arrival i marked the location, and got to work. After no luck, I examined pics he sent with fixed objects on shore. I remarked the spot 35′ away, and within 10 min the cross was in my scoop.
Sydney was visiting Destin from Kentucky with friends when her ring, handed down by her Mother, fell of her finger. Sydney recently lost her mom and I was heartbroken to here she lost it, but eager to get out there. Sydney gave me some great info as to where she lost the ring and I was able to locate it in the water within 20 minutes. Happy to help and very glad to reconnect her with her Mom’s ring. Another happy customer.
I received a call from guy who had lost his wedding ring on the beach after he had put the ring in his hat for safe keeping while swimming but forgot about it as he went to put the hat back on. Although he realized his mistake immediately the ring disappeared into the sand. Doing a quick search on the internet got him my information and I arrived at the beach about an hour later. Still having his beach chair in the same location he move it and I began my search. After a quick minute my detector rang out and the ring was in my scoop! A very relieved couple were able to go back enjoying their vacation with the family!
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.
