Got a call from a man who said I lost my ring on the beach, can you help me.?
I will do my best. Ask all the questions and head down to meet him. As we walk down he says he thinks its about a 10’x10′ area. After 4 or 5 passed I get it. A beautifull heavy Gold wedding band. Another ring saved and another smile made. Read the rest of this entry »
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….

11:30p.m A lost diamond ring was posted on Craigslist by a women who lost it earlier the same day.I emailed her right away and directed her to visit TheRingFinders web page ASAP
First thing in the morning she called to meet her there.
When I pulled into the parking lot I saw 2 people with metal detectors searching the area she posted online.I could also tell they had very little to No experience by there machines and there swing.So I politely asked if they had found a ring?
They said No and one of there buddies was there at midnight searching…Keep in mind they never actually contacted the person who lost the ring.So the newbies continued searching when Robin the owner walked up and we talked for a few minutes to narrow the search down to exactly where she lost it. That’s when John Hughes my Ringfinder team mate arrived just in time.Meanwhile..The other detectorist were tired,unsuccessful and on there way leaving.The owner had shown me a picture she took when she lost it with houses in the background and I asked her, show it to john..John Yells..we are 100ft off..Curtis go grid over there!! 5 min later I get a ring sound on my PI machine,kick the sand,And looked at robin with the biggest smile,dropped my metal detector laughing:) she said Oh my God picked up her ring and gave me a hug.We were both Excited and in relief I had found it!
