Two lost rings found in Grand Blanc, Mi

It is not unusual to find a stray ring or two, when looking for a lost item.  I have a good collection of rings I have found by chance over the years.  It is unusual to have the misfortune to lose a second ring while searching for the first.

Jeremy called me and explained that he had been searching for a lost ring in a wooded area next to a parking lot and needed help.  It was an expensive ring, and it had a lot of sentimental value.  We met the next day hoping to recover the ring.  Using a simulated ring with a streamer Jeremy reenacted the events that sent the engagement ring flying.  As we were estimating how far a ring might have landed from the spot they were standing, Jeremy mentioned  Amber, his fiancée, had lost a second ring in the search for the engagement ring the previous day.

While Jeremy worked at a more precise search area for the engagement ring I started beating the bushes for the second ring.  I found it in just a few minutes.  Sadly it was not even close to where Jeremy projected the engagement  ring should be.  After a very through search we were back to tossing the simulated ring with the streamer.

Watching the streamer waive in the wind as it flew through the air gave me the idea I had to go much deeper into the underbrush.  The strategy paid off.  In about two hours of searching we found both of the lost rings.

Family Fun Day Results With Wedding Ring Lost On Emerald Isle Beach

from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-614-354-6704

Jason and his wife spent four hours on Emerald Isle Beach enjoying a great September day.  Body surfing the ocean, throwing football and playing in the sand. 

Upon returning to their car Jason noticed his wedding ring was missing.  That evening, his wife called Emerald Isle Metal Detecting and arrangements were made to search the following day.  I brought Justin to help search the beach.  After searching for a few minutes, I decided a larger coil would be better in the wet sand so I headed to the truck.  Upon my return I see Justin walking towards me and I knew it was either he had equipment problems or found the lost ring.  I was very pleased he had found the ring in minutes of the beginning of his search.  The wife and kids were there to accept the ring and we were very thankful and the kids were very polite from the start!   If only all searches went this well!

Texas Aggie Ring returned to owner after Guadalupe River recovery in Hunt, Texas.

I received a call from a Texas Aggie that he lost his ring in the Guadalupe River near Hunt, Texas. Being that the Guadalupe is a spring-fed river and it nearing the end of September, I arranged a search before the water got too cold (no wetsuits). Shane (my son and searching partner) and I arrived at the location and met Rick. He explained that he was standing in the river and threw a stick across the river for his dog to fetch. When he did, his 1981 Aggie ring came off his finger at the same time! He pointed us to where he was standing and gave a pretty good idea of which direction he threw the stick. After searching the river (up to our necks at times) for about 1.5 hours with the Garrett AT Pro metal detector and eliminating several good target sounds, a great ring tone sounded in my Grey Ghost earphones. Shane dove down and when he came up the ring was in his hand! Whoop! Rick was excited and very appreciative of the return of his Aggie ring.

Two Lost Rings Located in Alexandria, LA!

from Alexandria (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-318-264-9380

A friend of mine mentioned to me that his father had lost his wedding band on their property about 6 years ago. “I never saw Daddy more upset in his life,” Alfred said to me. When I told him I could help him locate it, he was elated. And as I was a new member of TheRingFinders, I couldn’t imagine a more fitting entry.

So Alfred set me to looking for his father’s wedding band, with a general description of the ring and the probable lost location. Searching the property was a fun adventure, but after several days of looking in that area, I wasn’t coming up with it.

I decided to expand my search area. That’s when I found an amazing High School Graduation Ring. Not the ring I was looking for, but even the property owner didn’t know about this one…

With initials clearly inscribed inside, and the School name emblazoned on the head of the ring, I asked Alfred if he knew anyone with those initials who graduated from there in the 40’s. He said, ‘Sure, that sounds like it could be for Uncle Sherman.’ Alfred’s uncle, 91 years old now, had lost his graduation ring in 1946, shortly after purchasing it. And he was ecstatic to receive it back after being lost 74 years! Sherman remembers playing football in the yard there, and it coming off his finger. But, neither he nor anyone else remembered it for such a long time.

Relentless ground pounding, and the expanded search paid off ultimately when I located Alfred’s father’s wedding band shortly thereafter.

The family had been feeling a measure of loss concerning it, but we were able to bring them closure. Making the SECOND lost ring we have returned to this family!

Alfred writes: “Thank you Ben sooo very much for all the treasures you have discovered on the family property & giving them new life. The lawn was just quietly holding history of our family waiting to be awakened. Two rings were found, a high school ring dated 1946, and no one in the family knew where it was. The second ring was my dad’s wedding band that he lost January 2014. We knew it was on the lawn but that’s 1 1/2 acres. I sooo wish he was still with to know it’s back in safe hands… It’s unbelievable the decades these items lay in waiting for someone like you to show them once again the light of day and to be enjoyed by the 4th & 5th generations of our family! Most Sincerely, Alfred”

Making smiles and new friends is why I enjoy the art and science of metal detection so much. This is what it is truly all about.

Lost Phone at Ocean Beach found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Keanna spent the day at the dog beach in Ocean Beach with friends, both human and furry. Sometime during her stay, her phone came up missing. She and her friends sifted through the sand trying to find it, but, we know the results of that effort…..nada. After an online search with her friend Kristen’s phone, The Ring Finders website came up and my info. Kristen contacted me on her phone asking for help. Being early afternoon on a Labor Day weekend, trying to make to their location right away would be almost impossible, so, since they planned on being there for a while, I told them I’d come later in the day when people started to leave the beach and I would actually be able to drive to the beach and find a parking spot. I arrived a bit after sunset and met up with Kristen in the parking lot. We trekked over to the area where the phone was lost, and where I met Keanna and the gang. Maybe a minute went by on my search and I get a fairly deep and large signal on my detector. Not wanting to accidentally damage her phone, I used my pin pointer to probe into the sand for the target. I wasn’t surprised to find her phone, as this was the signal I expected, but, I was surprised that it was 8-10 inches deep. We guessed that with the dogs digging and other activities around the camp that it must have ended up in a hole that got covered. The phone was still up and working, so, a happy Keanna and her friends could head home after a long day at the beach. Pleasure meeting you all and thank you for the reward.

Brandon and his father in law were enjoying a guys day out fishing under Johns Pass bridge when all of a sudden Brandon hooked a nice size red fish and managed to get it up onto the dock. The next challenge was to secure the fish for a decent photo and in the process Brandon got a bunch of fish slime on his hand. So what is ones natural instinct when your hand is covered in slime? You shake your hand in hopes that the slime will go sailing off, but more than slime went flying! Brandon was shocked when he felt his wedding ring slip off of his hand and doubly shocked when it landed out in the water. He could not believe what just happened and the thrill and excitement of catching a nice fish disappeared as the reality of what just took place started to sink in. The water was way to deep for Brandon to try his hand at recovering it and actually it was close to 17 feet deep with lots of rocks and concrete boulders and sand and a fairly swift current on top of it all.

This vacation was a much needed one for Brandon and his wife and in-laws as he had to miss last years special vacation due to his military deployment. And having been married for only two years he was having a very hard time dealing with the loss of his wedding ring and having to end their vacation on that bitter note. Later that evening Brandon was looking online for some help and typed in “Underwater ring searching” and up came theringfinders.com! Most all members of theringfinders can search yards, parks and shallow water ways but only a few of us are scuba certified and that was definitely what Brandon was needing. It was a two and a half hour drive to Johns Pass in St. Pete, Florida and after obtaining the proper permission we met and proceeded to set up on the dock under the bridge. I then took two PVC poles that I joined together in order to drive down into the bottom to mark the center of the dive area. Brandon said his ring could be in a 20 foot square area and I was hoping to somehow mark the bottom. Unfortunately the PVC pole was 4 foot short plus the bottom was very rocky with small areas of sand here and there. So I opted to follow one of the dock pilings to the bottom and then with my back to the piling I made my way along the bottom using my Nokta/Makro-Pulse Dive, handheld metal detector to scan for Brandon’s lost wedding ring. Right away it was obvious that it would be difficult as the concrete had rebar in each large block and the detector was picking up all kinds of signals. I slowly made my way forward, barely being able to see what was in front of me. I determined to check each signal and found some fishing sinkers and other large objects. Being the ring was lost the day before it seemed likely that it would not be buried very deep in the sand. For 15 minutes I scanned all around until I came to two large chunks of concrete and as I scanned over the top I noticed a small area of sand and it gave a sharp signal. I swam closer to see what it was and I could barely make out a small circular shaped object. As my hand closed over the item it was obvious that it was a ring. I had a hard time containing myself and let out an underwater scream of Praise!! I slowly ascended to the top and stuck my hand out of the water with the ring on my pinky finger. Brandon’s father in law was videoing with his Gopro and Brandon was in total shock! He could not believe it was his ring and asked me what kind of markings it had on it. I told him and he still seemed dubious!

How I thank God for allowing me to find Brandon’s lost wedding ring and for keeping me safe during the whole ordeal!
