Lost wedding ring in yard, Lakeland, Fl….Found with a metal detector!

(That is me in the photo, filling in for Dave, as he was a bit shy!)

Dave was needing to get some brush cleared along the back side of his property and spent the good part of a day cutting and hauling branches out to the front of the house where the garbage truck could pick it all up. Every now and then he would remove his gloves and wipe the sweat from his brow or take a nice long drink of cold water, and then go back to work. On one occasion as he removed his gloves he felt his ring slip off of his finger and he quickly retrieved his ring and slid it back where it belonged. But as he was finishing up his work he looked at his left hand and saw that his ring had come off again so he tipped up his glove to shake out his ring but this time his glove was empty! He began looking the yard over, thinking he could easily find it but after an hour of combing thru every possible place he could think of—NO RING! The thought of finding it with a metal detector seemed like the most logical thing so he went out and bought a lower end model and started searching the yard from back to the front and along the sides. Dave was determined to find his ring and then it slowly began to dawn that maybe it had dropped into the canal at the back side of the property. A week went by and Dave realized he needed more help and that led him to one of my stories on theringfinders.com web site.

It was a two hour drive to Dave’s home and it was threatening to rain big time but after hearing his story I felt there was a good chance of being able to find his ring so off I went. After arriving and surveying the yard I set up my Garrett ATMax metal detector and went to work. (A few days earlier Dave had a chain link fence installed along the canal–so that was the most challenging part. With the metal fence and the drop off into the canal!). With the sun starting to set I turned my attention to the front of the house where Dave had hauled all the debris. I decided to start by the front door and follow the sidewalk down to the mailbox when I got a loud, sharp signal that showed two inches deep on my display and low and behold there was Dave’s lost wedding ring–just barely visible under the grass. Dave was putting his two little ones to bed at the time so I texted him a short “I found your ring!”

Whenever I am called to help someone look for a lost valuable I always ask my family and my parents, who are 88 and 87 years old, to pray for me. I assure people that God knows exactly where their item is hiding and He just needs to put my coil over the top of it. Again I thanked God for allowing me to find Dave’s lost wedding ring—just in time for their 7th year anniversary!

1953 Wedding Ring LOST

from Carlsbad (California, United States)
Contact: 1-760-212-6588

An evening Lost Ring Call. Laura calls and says, My Dad lost HIS DADS wedding ring. I’m aprox 5 mins away if I can find parking so I’ll head right down. Ok it took about 20 mins to be at top of the stairs and my phone rings,  we’re right below you waveing.  I get down on the sand and hear the story that this was his Dads ring from 1953.

His Mother Olga was standing there with tears in her eyes, I told them ” its here and I’ll find it for you.

After gridding the whole area, I asked if they checked their chairs and stuff,  he looked at me and replied, YES, 3 times.

Open up the search area and I think it was 2 passes and boom, there she be.  I take it outa the scoop and ask “Whats it look like”? Laura gets to dimonds on top and I hold up my finger with this beautifull ring on it.

I only ask kind of metal before I search, cause its a treasure hunt for me and I love the shock factor too.

I look to Grandma and the look on her face was PRICELESS.

A really nice guy who had helped them look for the ring in the sand before I was called, (gess they tried for over an hour, ) came over to me and asked

” will you take a tip from me ?” Thats a first, I was kinda in shock, as he stuck a bill in my bag. This proves my feeling about helping people,  Didnt get his name but he’s in the pic, red shirt. Thank You.  Happy 4 th to all. imageimage

I was just geeting ready for a water hunt when I saw a Ring post with a phone number. Ah what the hell, I’ll call him. Rob answered and seemed to know about our group TheRingFinders.com   I asked if he could meet me asap and we both headed to the area.  10 min later I walk down to the area to meet him and I see another detector guy 100 yds down the beach but headed the other way so I went and introduced myself. Wow we kinda know of each other, its a small world. Asked if he found anything back in the area he just went thru. Said no so I let him know if he did, reward is his. He smiled and replied I wish.

My phone rings and its Rob, I can see him coning down the beach on his phone. I say Goodby to this man and head over.  Rob shows the area so we make lines (big square) and I start to gid. Almost covered the area when Rob says, We might have been alittle more over there. An extra 10×20, so I do one pass thru turn and BEEP BEEP, I knew I had it. When u scoop a Plat ring you know it.  I turned my back and said whats it look like. 100% his.

I think he was a little bit in shock thinking no way in hell will he every see it again. He had brought his young son with him and they’ll have this story between them for life. I am STOKED to be a part of this….

Lost men’s 14k wedding band in Long Branch NJ Found and returned

from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-732-581-0285

After a 12hr day at work I’m home for maybe an hour when i get a message from Fellow Ring Finder Edward Cropski asking me if i’m near long branch as he just got a call from a guy out with his family that just lost his 14k white gold wedding band in the wet sand while playing with his son, Despite his wife telling him to give her his ring so he wouldn’t lose it. He felt it was safer with him. Which proved to be wrong… As him and his son were on the slope playing he happened to feel his ring slip off his finger. As he was about to dive for it a wave came in and just like that, The ring was gone. They found The ring finders site doing a search and quickly contacted Ed who then relayed it to me. But he lost it during the worst time.. 2 hrs after low tide and i got there another 45mins later. By then the tide was up 2 feet and the surf was rough with 3-4ft waves breaking on the beach. I tried to find it for a few hrs while being pounded mercilessly by the waves coming in to no avail… I had to give up the hunt and wait for better conditions. After sleeping for only 3hrs i was up at 1am the next day and out the door by 1:45 with the ctx now mounted with my 17″ coil to try again before work.. I got there around 2:30am and started to grid from the top of the slope and followed the tide out. I was finding stained quarters,nickles and 2 pieces of junk jewelry.. I knew i had pretty good odds at finding it but after searching for 2-1/2 hrs i was beginning to have some doubts as i finished up the area i laid out. I decided to expand the search area 10ft more on both sides of where i had already been. I got down to the wash and get a two-tone iffy signal about 12″ down, The numbers were all over the place. I decided i was digging everything and even though i thought it may be junk i went for it. But every scoop or two i took the now incoming tide filled the hole right back in again.. So now i was taking 3 scoops at a time between waves. The signal was fading,sinking… It even started to tone iron and then it disappeared. I had to dig even more to bring it back up again. Finally it was getting Louder. after 20+mins of chasing this signal one more scoop got it out. Kicked the sand with my foot and there it was!! Him and his family drove all the way down here tonight from Rutherford to reclaim it and gave me a very nice reward for finding it. They were in shock and couldn’t believe i had found it! A very happy customer! What a great experience it was! Now it’s time for some sleep…
