Lost wedding ring in grass, Orlando, Fl……Found!

  • from Sanford (Florida, United States)

David was playing a lively game of “keep away” on his driveway with his two children and never even realized his wedding ring had come off! During the action of throwing the ball and jumping around, his gold wedding ring came off of his finger and landed on the concrete. At that exact instant his son, Jonathan, actually inadvertently kicked it and what they heard was the “clink” of his ring hitting the driveway and then the clink, clink as it bounced off into the grass. No one realized what it actually was–thinking maybe Jonathan had kicked a nail or screw or some other metal object. They finished up their game and went inside for the evening.
It was not until the next day that David noticed his gold wedding ring was not on his finger. That’s when Jonathan remembered the metal clinking sound during there keep away game and thought that maybe it was his father’s gold wedding ring. So they ran outside and started looking up and down the driveway, in the grass and even out into the street. And still they could not find David’s ring. David then considered borrowing a metal detector and that’s when someone suggested he give me a call. I agreed to meet David later that same day at his home and assured him I would do my best to find his lost wedding ring.
After meeting David and his children and hearing their story I decided to begin my search along the grassy strip by the street and then worked my way up the left side of the driveway. The grass was very short and sparse with a few dead leaves here and there. David and his kids were watching my every move and could hear my metal detector sounding off on various targets. About 10 minutes into my search I got a really nice signal and there hiding under a single leaf was David’s lost wedding ring. I never get tired of seeing that look of sheer joy and hearing that heartfelt “Thank You!!” It was an honor and a privilege to find your lost ring and to meet your dear family!

Lost engagement/wedding ring on side of road…Orlando, Florida….Found!

  • from Sanford (Florida, United States)

I received a text from Monica saying she lost her very special ring along side of the busy 408 while throwing an apple core out of her car window! Monica and her fiance, Joe, are getting married in two weeks and the engagement/wedding ring was passed on to Joe by a special friend from their home town up in Kansas City, Missouri. Later that evening we met on the side of the freeway and discussed how to narrow down the area where she had lost her ring. Apparently it was raining quite hard that day and while doing 65 miles an hour–one can cover allot of distance rather quickly. I suggested we begin by trying to locate the apple core. And after 20 minutes of looking through the foot long grass we spotted the actual apple core Monica had thrown out of her car window. I spent the next 4 hours grid searching the long grass–having to actually push the long stuff over with my foot before I could pass the coil close enough to the ground to even get any signals. At 11:30pm I decided to call it quits and headed home.
The next day Monica texted me and thanked me for my efforts but I assured her I would try one more time. Two days later I decided to try again. I packed up some traffic cones, a reflective safety vest and my Whites DFX metal detector. (And I even decided to drop a test ring out my window to get a better idea of where Monica’s ring might have landed.) As I pulled off the freeway I noticed that they had cut the grass and I felt my chances of finding her ring went way up. After locating my dropped test ring–which landed fairly close to the old apple core–I set out my cones and started searching. Three hours later I got a nice signal and there under the grass was Monica’s beautiful ring! Joe and Monica were thrilled to have their ring back and to see the smiles on their faces made the 7 hours of searching very well worth it.
It was great to meet Joe and Monica and I wish them all the best in their new life together!
