Gold Ring Lost in Sea at Russell, Bay of Islands – Found!

from Paihia (New Zealand)
Contact: 021 401 626

John was out swimming off Long Beach at Russell in the Bay of Islands, and realising he’d forgotten to leave his gold wedding band behind took it off and dropped it inside his wetsuit for security.  All went to plan, until, at the end of his swim and while wading ashore he unzipped the wetsuit and folded it down.  The inevitable happened, however it wasn’t until he was back at the car and out of the wetsuit he remembered the now absent ring.

He spent some time looking for his treasured gold ring in the grass in the carpark and retraced his steps up and down the beach without luck.

I came into the story three days later and made the journey over to hopefully reunite John with his lost ring.

John was up to getting wet again, so I asked him to take one of my marker floats out and drop it at his best guess for the start point.

Starting initially with a spiral search pattern in the immediate area out to 5m, I then ran parallel sweeps back into the beach in the direction of his travel back to the car – pausing to brace into the occasional larger breaking waves.

Once in the shallows, I took a short break to remove the wetsuit and switch to dry gear for the remainder of the beach, continuing the overlapping parallel sweeps back to the car – With no luck.

I always aim to run at 90-95% probability of detection, and the fact I hadn’t found it irritated me. I explained to John that the chances of missing it were slim, so there was a possibility it had fallen out on the hard sand or grass and been picked up. The search corridor marked out allowed for plenty of space either side of his track, so I was confident it wasn’t there.

John accepted the loss, we shook hands and he headed on his way home.

After packing the gear away, I grabbed a coffee from the nearby vendor and sat in the car looking at the beach with the search grid in the sand… I wasn’t happy about something, but couldn’t pin it down.  I needed to have another go on the “Assume Nothing, Believe No-One and Confirm Everything” principle.

What if John hadn’t come in on the direct line he thought he had?  Watching the swimmers and kids splashing around for a few minutes, I saw there was a subtle longshore drift dragging them along the beach. I decided to go back in and extend the search corridor.

Didn’t bother with the wetsuit this time, just grabbed the scoop and detector and headed back to the edge of the previous search area and started adding another 10m to it in the direction of the current.

After maybe 15 minutes, I got that solid gold ‘thud’ in the phones, and the scoop picked it up first time.

I headed back to the car and not having Johns number, phoned his wife to give the good news and ask her to get John to turn around and come back.  He was a very happy chap when I dropped the ring in his hand.

Sokni and her family will be moving into a new home. She was worried that there may be nails or sharp metal objects in the backyard where her young children would be playing. She called me asking if I could use my metal detector to remove possible dangerous metal objects.

I asked if she had any reason that there were such objects in the yard. She told me that she just had a feeling that there might be metal trash because the house was about 30 years old. ‘We agreed to meet her the next day figuring that this would be a quick little search that would give Sokni peace of mind.

After scanning the first 20 feet of lawn, I was surprised to find several sharp screws, nails and a old razor blade. The general area was loaded with ferrous and non ferrous signals near the surface. This was a challenge to me and a good chance to dig all metals. Normally I’m just searching for precious metals.

This search took several sessions to complete the project and I was able to spread it out over a couple 3 hour searches. The photos show what was in the backyard. I couldn’t believe how many sharp items were in that small yard.

Laura was at Huntington State Beach with her family all day Sunday. She believed that her Rose Gold Diamond engagement ring fell in the sand when she removed her sweater from her beach bag. Late Wednesday night she found TheRingFinders website while researching metal detectors on line.

It was almost midnight when she sent me an email. She was asking if I could help her. It was 9 am Thursday morning when I read and replied to her email, asking her to call me ASAP. Emails are nice but it was another couple hours till we were able to set up a meeting on the beach. 

We were lucky that it wasn’t Huntington City Beach which has very efficient beach sifting equipment. Also this time of year there is always a chance that recreational detectorist may have found it, not knowing who to return it to.

As we walked towards the fire pits where the ring was lost. I tried not to tell Laura about the negative possibilities that could hamper our search. Laura showed me the first of two places it could be. Setting up my detector, I took a couple practice swings. Beginning my grid I got nice solid signal that didn’t quite sound like gold. After scooping the target, I could see the rose gold engagement ring in the scoop. Rose gold is a composite of metals that gives a little different ID reading than other precious metals. 

Laura lit up like a light when she saw it in the scoop. She gave me a big smile for the photo as you can see. We walked back to our cars and she was full of joy all the way there. She had four miserable days worrying that her ring was gone forever. Now the ring was back where it belongs. It was definitely a pleasure to help her, it never gets old doing this. Thanks for TheRingFinders website and the internet.

Lost Rings at Night! – Pensacola Beach – FOUND!

from Pensacola (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-850-346-1736

Well, I’m not sure if this counts as 2 rings or more but I am sure that Kelly and Bill are absolutely thrilled that I was able to put them back on her hands where they belong. Kelly and Bill have been married for 25 years and have been down vacationing from Michigan. Kelly folded her rings into her swimsuit early in the day for safekeeping and forgot they were there when she got up later to meet her sister. You can imagine her shock when she realized they were gone that evening. Kelly went ahead and called me even though it was nighttime and I’m glad she didn’t wait. Bill had gone out with a sand flea rake for fishing and combed the area already to no avail. I told him later that he had actually just made the rings go deeper and deeper every time he disturbed the sand because of the density of gold. Luckily for Kelly and Bill, I have a wonderful wife and even though we were at dinner 30 minutes away, she offered to ride with me and we immediately went home and grabbed my gear. I met Bill in the parking lot and he walked me down to the area he thought they had lost them. I could see all of the rake marks and I told Bill I would start my search there and then fan out if needed. I absolutely love night searches on the beach. It’s nice and cool and you can hear the waves over the hum of the machine in my headphones. You can enjoy the stars without bumping into sunbathers and it’s just a great time to enjoy what I do. I also knew that I had a very anxious couple waiting on the outcome so I was very glad that as I made my first pass I heard a faint gold sound. I was a little surprised at how deep it was even though I knew Bill had thoroughly raked the area. When my first gentle scoop to five inches came back empty I thought to myself that they were very lucky they called me and I had the machine that I was using. The second scoop was the charm and I reached down and dug the first ring out of the scoop to make sure I didn’t scratch it. When I saw that I had them both in the scoop, I smiled and handed them to Bill. With a shaky hand, he asked me to hold the light and he took a picture and sent it to Kelly in the room so she could stop worrying immediately. We walked back up and told my wife that I was already done in less than 10 minutes and Bill asked us both to come up and meet Kelly. When we walked in the door I was quickly reminded why I do this. Bill and Kelly both got choked up remembering how much those rings had been a part of over the last 25 years. I was glad that my wife got to witness that and I hope Bill and Kelly have many, many more happy years together. 👍😃

Last Sunday I got a call from a young lady who had taken her 3 rings (2 18K, and 1 platinum) off at the beach, and placed them on her towel. When she and her friends went to leave they picked up everything and walked off, forgetting the rings were on the towel. They went back and searched desperately for her rings after realizing what had happened, but could not find them. They called me about 6:00 PM to see if I could do a search for them. I said I would be happy to, and told them when I could be there, but they decided to search some more, before having me come out. Well they did not call me out for the search until about 8:30 PM, and I left right away.

I got to the area about 9:30 PM, but was unable to get parking because the streets shut down at 10:00 PM, so I had to park about 1 mile North and walk back. I got to the area shown by the directions they had given me, and started my search; it was just me and the beach at that time of night. By 11:00 I had her rings in my hand, and was able to text her of a successful hunt. We got together yesterday for the ring return, and she was very happy to have her rings back, one of which had been her mother’s. A great hunt!

A week ago Monday I received a call from Megha; she had lost her engagement ring while celebrating the Holi Festival of Colors at a park the day before. She had been covered in colored powder from the festivities, and while trying to brush off some of the powder she with one flick of the wrist felt her ring fly off of her finger into the grass. She and friends and family searched all over for the ring, but were not able to find it. I told her that I could be there the next morning, but she did not have transportation to the park, so we had to wait until this last Friday to do the search. I was concerned that the ring would not be there when we did the search, but I promised to do the search for her none the less.

When I arrived to the park 4 days later, Megha’s Husband met me and took me out to the area of the loss. As we were walking out across the grass, about the equivalent of 4 football fields, I could see and feel that the thatch was about 4 inches thick, and was mowed long to keep the lawn healthy, so I knew how the ring disappeared so quickly. Megha was looking in the area she believed the loss occurred. We discussed how it happened, and I got ready for the search looking at a very wide expanse of grass, and thinking it might be a long search. I began, and made 3 short passes, when I got a good strong repeatable signal. I put the pin pointer in and there it was Megha’s beautiful engagement ring; she had remembered the exact spot! Needless to say she and her husband were very grateful. It was a wonderful day!

Hearing Aid Lost in Sand .. Will Rodgers Beach, Santa Monica, CA. .. Found

Greg has been at Will Rodgers Beach in Santa Monica, CA. He lost a very expensive high tech hearing aid. He called me asking if I had metal detectors that could find a hearing aid lost in the sand. I have several metal detectors that are specifically for finding small objects. The most important factor, is getting me to the general location as soon as possible.

I met him about 3pm in the afternoon with probably a couple hours of daylight left before dark. These hearing aids actually have gps locating capabilities and the last location was across the street near the bus stop. We went to search that location first without success.

Greg brought the matching hearing aid and it was quite easy to get a good signal. Now he pointed out an area of the beach where he had been flying a kite with his son.

It was a massive area, probably as big as a football field. Plan “A” was to start gridding 30’x 30’ quadrants. While starting the first 30 feet, Greg told me that he had fallen down at the other end of the search area.

I changed my search plan, deciding to start from the place where Greg had fallen. 

We proceeded to walk over to that location. I left my detector on as we walked diagonally to a new starting spot 100 yards away. Stopping a slow grid and stepping up my pace, I only went 20 feet when I got a signal that was worth checking. 

Unbelievable! There was Greg’s hearing aid. First target 20 minutes after starting a search that I felt was going to be possibly 3 or 4 hours.

Greg later told me that he had only been using these hearing aids for 4 months and the whole set was valued at more than $10k. We saved a whole lot of trouble getting it replaced besides the expense to get a replacement.

I believe in miracles, but they don’t happen if you don’t try.

This was a repost as I accidentally deleted the original.

Klara is a Arizona college student visiting Santa Monica Beach, CA. during spring break. She and her friends were at the Original Muscle Beach workout area. Before she decided do a few moves on the different bars, she took off her rings putting them in the pocket of her shorts.

Later that evening at the hotel she realized two of her silver rings were missing. They were special to her as they were gifts from her mother. The next morning she was flying back to Arizona. Doing a quick search on the internet Klara was able to get my phone number.

We talked, I agreed to do the search without out her if she could send me a google earth screen shot with areas marked up.

The most likely place for the rings to be lost were the workout bars but she said they had also sat on the sand to watch other athletes workout.

Most times successful recoveries happen in the location of the most activity. This time after an hour searching under and around the workout bars, I went to the place were they sat in the sand. Both rings showed up in the sand scoop just as I was running out of a space to search.

I was able to text a photo of the rings to Klara and the next morning I mailed them to her with a request for her to send me a photo of her holding the rings.

Jason called last night after losing his ring at a local park near his house. We discussed the loss, and where he thought it might be. It sounded like we could postpone the search until today because of the length of the grass, and that the loss was on a hillside. We arranged to meet in the morning. So when I finished breakfast, I was on my way.

I met Jason at his house, and then followed him over to the park. When we arrived he showed me where he had been when the loss occurred, and how he believed the ring could have fallen there. I began working the hillside, and received numerous signals, but none registering silver. It wasn’t until I worked passed the tree that is in the photo above that I got the signal I needed. I looked in the grass and could see the round shape that assured me I had found Jason’s ring. I reached down and brought it back up showing him immediately. Needless to say he was very happy to have it back, after having it on his finger for 7 years. I was very glad to have given him that relief. It is much fun making people happy!
