Lost Gold and Diamond Ring Sugar Land, Texas (found)

01/25/2016

I was contacted this evening by Soni, she had been searching the internet for “help” on how to find a lost ring in the grass. Soni said she found The Ring Finders on-line and placed the call!

Soni reported her daughter had been playing with her ring this evening, and at some point dropped in the grass in the backyard. Soni said the area in question is a small 10 x 10 area just off the back patio.

I made plans to meet Soni this evening to search for the ring. Soni’s smile tells the rest of the story.

100+ Year Old Wedding Ring Lost in Alkire Lake Sugar Land, Texas (Recovered)

I was contacted by Jim yesterday evening regarding his wife’s lost Wedding Ring in Alkire Lake in Sugar Land, Texas. Jim said, his wife Kaye had been sitting out on their dock this evening and accidentally dropped her wedding  ring. Jim said her ring rolled accross their dock and dropped into about 3-4 foor of water. Jim said he and a friend spent a little time in the water searching for the ring, but their search was unsuccessful. Jim said after the unsuccessful search he had located me on the internet through “The Ring Finders”. Jim inquired if I could assist him in the recovery of his wife’s wedding ring. Jim said they had a fairly accurate location of where the ring rolled of the dock and into the water.

I meet Jim and Kaye at their residence this morning and was given a first hand account of how the ring had been lost. Kaye showed me where she had been sitting and where the ring had rolled across dock and dropped of edge.

Lesson #1 if you are using a GoPro camera to capture this, make sure it’s on and actually recording. Kaye had given me a great interview explaining how the ring was lost and the history of her missing ring.

A quick summarization of what did not get recorded , Kaye said she has worn her Wedding Ring for the past 58 years, and it was handed down to her from her Grandmother. Kaye said her ring has family history back to the early 1900’s.

Kaye was saying and explaining what I already knew, the ring simply could not be replaced.

I repositioned the GoPro setting it up on a Tri-Pod to record the recovery. The bottom of the Lake was fairly hard-packed with a thick gumbo clay bottom surface. I felt pretty confident, I would be able to recover her ring based on the bottom conditions (first recovery out of this lake). I dumped each possible target scoop on a plastic sheet and Jim worked through it with his hands sorting through the mud. I had dumped about six or seven buckets when I hit a really nice clean signal near the edge of the dock in the target area.

Lesson #2 Let me back up her for just a minute and talk about the CTX3030, I opted to use the CTX3030 on this recovery, knowing it was going to be a shallow water recovery. I wear the wireless receiver for the headphones around my shirt collar always keeping it dry and well above the water. Interesting discovery today, if you submerge the handle-head unit display of the CTX3030, the wireless transmission to the headphones ceases. The water around the head unit must some how interfere with the signal transmission to the headphones receiver. I had my CTX3030 Gray Ghost headphones packed away in the truck and after a quick set-up adjustment everything worked great. (lesson learned)

I pulled up scoop number eight and could see Kaye’s Wedding Ring in the basket, I looked up to see Jim and Kaye sitting on the dock. I smiled at the GoPro giving it a big thumbs up…LOL now, thinking this was all being recorded. I grabbed the GoPro and hollered over to Jim and Kaye and held up her family heirloom, her missing Gold Wedding Ring.

I could immediately see the happiness and joy this brought to both Jim and Kaye.

Lost Platinum Wedding Ring Sugar Land, Texas (Recovered)

I received the following e-mail today after speaking with Dr. Shah last night regarding his lost wedding ring. Dr. Shah said he had lost his wedding ring the other day while playing soccer with several friends at a local park. Dr. Shan said he was playing goalie when he deflected a kick with his left hand and moments later discovered his wedding ring was missing. Dr. Shan said he and several of his friends spent time looking for his ring but were not able to locate it in the grass. We discussed trying to meet at the park today, but scheduling issue was not going to allow that to happen.

The plan was to use Google maps to pin point the location of the search area. I was familiar with the park having hunted it in the past to dial in new metal detectors and for general detector training. I was comfortable with the map plan, but I always like having the client on-site for a complete walk through.

Today’s e-mail

Go west on New Territory past 99.  Soccer fields come on the left.  We were playing on the very last soccer field before the woods (in this shot, it looks like a blank field).

Once you get to the field, I am almost positive I lost my ring in this fashion.   I was playing goalie and standing in the middle of where the red circle is.   My friend was standing at the X and shot a hard left footed shot.  The ball curved to my left.  

I got my hands on it, but the speed of the shot bent my fingers back.  The ball deflected off the post to my left.   I shook my hands to get rid of the sting while going to my left to get the ball.  This is when I noticed I didn’t have the ring on.

Depending on the trajectory of how I lost the ring, it could be anywhere within or slightly outside the red circled area

I made it out to the park early this morning and used the provided Google Map to establish my
 
search area. I started with a Grid search in front of the goal and within just a few minutes hit a solid signal.
 
Dr. Shah was very acurate with his information which resulted in a fast and successful recovery.

Service Call  06/29/2013

I recieved the following email from a Sugar Land resident regarding a lost ring.

Hi John, I just read the story about  Richard Browne in Mass. who finds rings for people and he mentioned ringfinders.com.

I checked and to my surprise, I found you in Sugar Land, which is where I am.

My eldest son was in our pool 2 weeks ago splashing the dogs and he says his wedding ring flew off (he’s been married for two years).  I have a very old metal detector, and I am a rank amateur, but we tried to find it with no luck.  If it did fly off, then it’s in my back yard, but we just can’t find it. My wife and I go out in the yard looking for it  almost every day but we’ve found nothing.

So I am reaching out to you, to see if you can help us. At the worst I’d like to be able to tell my son it’s not there.

thanks and regards,
Mark Locascio

I made the short trip to Marks this morning with the new CTX3030 in hand. Mark pointed out the areas where he felt the ring might have flown of his son’s hand. I was initial a little apprehensive when Mark brought out his nice looking White Coin Master Metal Detector and explained he had already tried finding the ring. He said he had put another gold ring in the yard and was able to find it with no trouble.

That was a little bit of a sinking feeling 😉

I worked the same areas as Mark had previously described with his detector, and was not able to find the ring. I took a few minutes to think about the event that led up to the loss of the ring. I decided to work some a couple of flower beds well outside of the area identifed.

I opted for the hand and knees approach with my pin pointer on a flower bed that was riddled with metal distractions. The ring jump right out on my second sweep of the pinpointer.

Mark and his wife said they had given up all hopes that the ring would ever be found.
