14K Man’s Wedding Band Lost in Myrtle Beach, Found and Returned

  • from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

I got a call from Hunter about 3pm about his lost wedding band which turned out to be in Matt Fry’s area. I told him that one of us would call him back shortly. I called Matt and gave him the information and he told me he had some things going on and to go ahead and take it, so I did. I called Hunter back and we agreed to meet at 7pm.

Hunter and I met in his front yard and he told me the story. Their family heirloom wedding rings, which had quite a story attached to them, belonged to his wife Michelle’s aunt who passed them on to Hunter and Michelle as a wedding present. Michelle and Hunter got married on July 6th of this year and Hunter’s ring was too small for his ring finger so he wore it on his pinky finger. At some point during the celebration of their wedding and partaking of adult beverages the ring fell off his finger and has been lost since. Hunter had contacted another metal detectorist, not associated with The Ring Finders, a week after the loss who was unable to find the ring. He told me I was the last resort because their lease was up at the end of the month and they were moving. As I got started in my search Hunter handed me Michelle’s ring which was smaller but an exact duplicate that I tested with my AT Pro and got a solid 53 on the meter. A 53 on this machine is exactly where a nickel would ring up as. About 45 minutes later and after finding a buried nickel I got a second solid nickel reading and dug down through the grass and dirt to about 2-3 inches and this time it was Hunter’s ring. I cleaned it off and walked up to Hunter who was sitting on the porch. I showed him the ring and he flew out of the chair and gave me the biggest bear hug I’ve ever had. I took the ring back to get some pictures while he ran inside to tell Michelle. She came outside in utter shock and more hugs. How can it possibly get any better than this other than Michelle told me she had just found out she’s pregnant with twins. Wow!!

Hunter offered me a very generous reward but I agreed to take a portion if they’d use the rest to buy their new twins something from me. They agreed. Very happy ending all the way around!!!

Hunter and Michelle thank you for trusting in me to find your lost treasure and the very best of luck to you in all your future endeavors. Good luck with the twins!

Man’s Platinum Wedding Band Lost, Found and Returned Pawley’s Island SC

  • from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

Mark sent me an e-mail saying he was in Pawley’s Island SC vacationing with his family from PA and asked if I could help find his wedding band. I responded saying I’d be glad to help and I’d be there the next day at 2pm.

When I arrived Mark showed me the small area he believed his ring was lost the night before while sitting on the beach enjoying the evening. He stated he had taken his ring off and put it in the cup holder to his beach chair.  A couple  of hours later after returning to their beach house he realized he didn’t have his ring and had forgotten it in the chair. I started a grid search and was having problems with my PI giving off a loud constant steady tone instead of the whisper tone I was expecting. Luckily I had brought another machine and after about 30 minutes and expanding my grid search out I hit a good signal and BINGO. I kept the ring in the scoop as I extended it out to Mark to retrieve. He was extremely excited to have his ring back on his finger.

Mark and Pauline thank you so much for trusting in me to help find your treasure. Hope you enjoy the rest of your vacation and have a safe trip home.
