I got a call from Mike that he was removing some trash from in front of his house when his ring flew off his finger. Mike said that he and some of the neighbors had searched the area but were unable to find it and he thought maybe it went into the sewer. It was Good Friday and I was planning on heading to church in a little bit so I was hesitant to head out until after mass however, my wife convinced me to go and help Mike – maybe that was my calling for the day. So I told Mike I would be right out and about an hour later I arrived. Looking at where the sewer was compared to where he had been standing when he lost his ring I was thinking that would be one heck of shot and some really bad luck if it went into the sewer, so I had my doubts it went in there. I began my search, checking the most logical place which was the neighbor’s yard across the street and I came up empty so I went back over in front of Mike’s house. After scanning the front yard I moved to the lower side of the driveway where there was a slight drop off to the grass and BAM! there it was. Mike was very surprised at where I had found it in relation to where he had lost it. He and his wife were ever so grateful. The nice thing about a semi-quick find like this was I got to spend a bit of time talking to Mike afterwards. As always – it is great to meet kind and generous people like Mike and his wife and be able to return his lost ring! And I was really glad my wife talked me into going out sooner than later…there is only one Easter miracle but this was definitely a blessing!

I received a text from Ryan that he had lost a gold ring while working on a vehicle in his front yard about a month ago. It took a little coordination because it was a good distance away, but we made arrangements and within a few days I was there and ready to go. It took me between and hour and an hour and a half, but in the tall grass on the way to the mailbox I found it! Ryan was very grateful and happy to have the ring back. Like all the jewelry we find it had its own special story and I was happy to be able to help.

I was just on my way home from finding another ring when I received a text from Randy asking if I could look for a lost ring in the Bethel Park area of Pittsburgh. As luck would have it  (for both of us!) I was only a short distance away since I was returning from the other job. I immediately called Randy back and he informed me that he was performing a tree service job when he realized that he lost his wedding band.

When I got to the job site I could see Randy had been hard at work and with the cold weather it is understandable how his ring slipped off his finger. We talked briefly and he thought maybe it flew off his hand starting his chainsaw, or that it possibly slipped off his finger when he was cleaning up trimmings and dumping them in the woods. I went to the back where he had started the saw and began my grid search…an hour or so later – no luck. I expanded my search to other parts of the yard where he had been working and then over to where he had been dumping the trimmings. While I was searching Randy was diligently sorting through some of the trimmings and things to make it easier for me to get in there and search. I looked in the area where the limbs and things had been dumped…no luck. I was starting to think that it was lost in the woods and that I would never find it. I had one last area to check, the path he was taking from the work site to the woods. This seemed to be the least likely place and after three hours I was hoping that I was going to have enough daylight to conduct a second search as my optimism started to fade. Meanwhile Randy had strapped on his climbing gear and impressively scaled a tree and was back at work.

I started searching the path from the trees to the dump site and after a few passes I had a solid hit in a pile of leaves he had blown off to the side. I reached down and there was the platinum ring! I walked over and jokingly asked Randy if he wanted to come down to get his ring or if he wanted me to throw it up to him. He rapidly descended from the tree and came over to get his ring. He was as elated that I found his ring as I was relieved. I think we were both starting to doubt I was going to find it.

Randy thanked me several times and we talked briefly before he started back to his task at hand. Once again he climbed the tree and was back at work. In my brief time with Randy it is apparent that he is a genuine and hard working guy who I am extremely happy that I was able to reunite with his ring and if I ever need a tree guy I know who to call!

Today was also a first – two recoveries in one day – thank you to Bob and Randy for trusting me to look for their rings and thankfully I was able to come through for both of them.

I received a text from Bob asking me if I would be willing to look for his lost wedding band in the Pittsburgh area. We spoke briefly on the phone to work out the details and agreed on today. The ring was believed to have been lost while gardening and was thought to be in one of his flower beds or in the woods where he dumps his clipping. Bob explained to me that the ring was more than just a wedding band, but an heirloom with significant meaning.

Of course as I set out to meet Bob I was greeted by the first snow of the year, albeit just some flurries with a dusting here or there along the way. However, by the time I reached Bob’s house the snow had stopped and the sky was turning blue, I was hoping it was a good omen for my search. The thought had crossed my mind while on my way to send Bob a text and tell him we would have to wait for better weather as I am a “fair weather” ring finder when I was a few minutes from his house, but then my better judgement told me to remember – “you are a ring finder, not a comedian” so I held off.

Bob was warm and welcoming when I met him and showed me the area to be searched. Despite the cold weather he wanted to be outside to accompany me while I searched. I checked the front flower gardens and not really so much as a peep on my machine. I asked Bob to show me where he dumped his clipping and he took me back to the edge of the woods. My thought was a quick check there before I started searching the yard between the flower beds and the woods. No sooner did I start searching the clippings and my AT Pro hit the sweet spot. I reached down into the clippings and pulled out the gold wedding band with a channel of diamonds. Bob checked his watch, I had been there less than a half hour total.

As I handed the ring over to Bob I could see all the emotions his face – thankfulness, relief, happiness…  Bob was kind enough to share the story of his ring with me. It is not my story to retell, but I will say that it is one that touched the heart, probably similar in many ways to some of the stories that other ring finders have heard as well, and it underlines the importance of what we do. It was a great pleasure to meet Bob today and an even greater one to return his heirloom wedding band!
