Ring lost at Mission Bay found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Michael was out on the beach at Mission Bay in front of his apartment when, while waving to someone, his loose fitting wedding ring flew off into the sand. A search by sifting through the sand proved fruitless, so, an online search was in order where he found The Ring Finders website. When I turned on my phone in the morning, I noticed the text and contacted Michael. We made plans for a 10am meet and search. After arriving, meeting Michael and his lovely wife, we went to the site while talking and getting the ring loss story on the way. The search area was fairly large, but, not ridiculous. All dry sand and maybe 30 X 100 feet or so. I started at one end and after 3-4 passes, several coins, and a dog tag later, his gold wedding band came to light. All smiles on the happy couple now and thank you for the reward.

Lost wedding band Indian rocks beach…. Found!

Amanda and her family were here on vacation. She was playing volleyball with her daughter when both her wedding band and engagement ring flew off into the shallow waters on Indian Rocks Beach. Her daughter found the engagement ring but they couldn’t find the band. Day one of searching for 3 hours turned up nothing. Another metal detecting hunter joined the search and still we didn’t find anything. The next day I had a few hours to spare so I went out again and had better results. One ping in two days! About 15 feet out into the shallow waters and buried an inch and a half in the sand.
That one ping was Amanda’s wedding band!! So glad I could find it before she went home the next day. A happy ending to a family vacation.

Hi, My name is Lee and I just joined Ringfinders.com. I have been metal detecting as a hobby for over three years. Many years ago I worked doing land survey and specialized in finding “ hard to find” property corners that no one else could find. So it isn’t new to me. My favorite part of metal detecting is the opportunity to find a persons lost jewelry and reunite what they thought was lost forever.This is why I decided to join Ringfinders.com.

Lost wedding ring in the surf, Daytona Beach, Florida….Found and Returned!

Nathan emailed me late Friday night and asked if there was any chance I could help him look for his lost tungsten wedding ring at the beach. He explained that they had spent part of the afternoon on the sand and in the water and only realized his ring was missing later while eating dinner. Nathan was not real used to wearing his wedding ring because he and his lovely wife had just gotten married four days earlier and they were on their honeymoon the day he lost his ring. Bummer, hey?! And to make matters worse they were going to be returning home to Missouri in just two days. I assured Nathan that his lost wedding ring was not going to be washed away and if he could remember exactly where they entered the water and about how far out they went…then there was a very good chance of finding his lost ring.
The next morning I met Nathan on the beach and he explained how they had stayed in the sun light because they were a bit chilled and the setting sun was shinning between two very large buildings that were quite close together…so that was a huge help in putting me in the best location. Before getting started I told Nathan that I would probably be digging various targets along the way and if I were to find his ring he would be the first to know. So I started out my grid search just to the north of the 60 feet wide target area and I proceeded to dig various coins and junk items. I was going from the wet sand out to almost chest deep and on my 6th pass I got a solid, sharp signal on my TDI Beach Hunter that turned out to be Nathan’s lost ring! The relief on Nathans face was obvious and the smile said it all! I really thank God for helping me find Nathan’s lost wedding ring and I wonder who else out there may need my help as well?! Lost something in the water or on the land? Call, text or email ASAP!

Lost ring in East Crooked Lake, Eustis, Florida….Found and Returned!

Erick had just bought his daughter a new fishing pole and they were on the end of his parents dock trying it out for the very first time when disaster struck! Erick said that after putting a nice juicy worm on the hook, he went to wash the goo from his hands and as he shook the excess water off, his heavy gold wedding ring went “plunk” right into the dark lake water! Erick was stunned as he watched it hit the water and disappear out of sight. Right away he tried to figure out how he could retrieve his ring so he checked the depth of the water and determined it to be around 11 feet deep. Too deep for him to jump in and attempt any sort of search himself. And the more he thought about his situation he felt there just had to be some way or someone who could help him retrieve his lost ring. So he went online and soon came across theringfinders.com and one of my successful recovery stories.

After speaking with Erick and hearing what all happened I assured him that his ring was not going anywhere and the soonest I could conduct a search would be in three days. Erick told me he had actually calculated that his ring fell off the dock exactly 32 inches from the end of the dock, which he had marked with a magic marker. With that information I put together a pole that was to be driven into the bottom of the lake and anchored with a 2X4 to the dock. This time I brought my scuba gear and was prepared to do a proper dive. Only the bottom of the lake was covered with SAV…submerged aquatic vegetation…which would not permit me to swing a metal detector. So I used my water proof Scuba Tector/X Pointer Pro that is rated to 200 feet! As I slowly descended to the bottom I was able to use the pole as a guide and it wasn’t long until the end of my hand held pointer clicked on something metal and there in the thick mud and silt in a tangle of grass was Erick’s lost ring! And as I slowly surfaced holding the ring on my finger and sticking it up so that was the first thing Erick would see…I will never forget the stunned look on Erick’s face. I am so thankful to God for allowing me to be able to help Erick be reunited with his lost wedding ring! Erick and his wife celebrate 15 years of marriage and are still committed to each other and going strong!

Lost ring in the water, Lake Tibet, Orlando, Fl…..Found and Returned!

Greg called me about a ring that his girl friend had accidentally dropped in a lake and mentioned it was only in a few feet of water. I explained how I normally retrieve lost rings and he assured me he knew exactly where it fell off of the dock and into the water. He said his girl friend had used a mask and tried to locate the ring but was unsuccessful. It had been lost almost a month prior to our conversation and I assured Greg that the ring was most likely in the same spot where it originally fell.

Three days later I met Greg at the location and the first thing I did was to check the exact depth of the water at the drop site and it turned out to be more like 6 to 7 feet deep. Unfortunately I had not brought my scuba tank, dive hose and regulator but I did have my mask and snorkel. So I figured it was another good opportunity to practice diving and holding my breath….once again!

By using my PVC pole stuck into the soft lake bottom where Greg said the ring had fallen, I was able to work my water proof Garrett pro pointer around the pole checking every metal signal. I found various bolts and such and on the 3rd dive I got a good signal and could only grab a handful of mud, shells and debris and as I sorted through the material my hand felt Greg’s lost ring! As I surfaced I rinsed the ring off and was amazed by the unique design and beauty. Greg was thrilled and very thankful to see his girl friend’s lost ring again and I was honored to be the one to find it for them.

Found: Waikiki Beach – Wedding Ring

from Honolulu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-282-6978

It started as a normal day.  I headed to the beach for some metal detecting and relaxation.  That day I chose Waikiki Beach and left before dawn.  I hadn’t been on the sand more than 10 minutes when Adam, a surfing instructor, came up to me and asked “do you know how to use a metal detector?”.  I was taken aback a bit but answered that “I’ve been doing this for a number of years.  He then began to explain he had lost his ring in the late afternoon the day before.  He knew the aprox. location in the dry sand he had lost his ring and after some experimentation with a borrowed metal detector he gave up realizing he had no idea how to use it.  That explained his first question to me about if I knew how to use my metal detector.  I headed to the area he indicated.  The area was small but full of a lot of trash and iron.  It took a good 20 minutes to sort out all the targets but knowing that the ring was tungsten carbide I knew it would be a lower sounding contact.  Finally I locked on to the sound I wanted, which was outside the area indicated as where it was lost.  Only plausible explanation was as it was a high traffic area the ring had been kicked outside the area we were originally searching.  Adam was overjoyed to get his wedding band back where it belongs.

Lost Ring found in Fernandina Fl. Guitar player happy!!

I parked at a beach side restaurant in Fernandina.   On the back deck there was a band playing and I recognized the lead singer.   I decided to go metal detect the beach and come back later that night to say hello.

At 11:00, I came back and they were packing up.   I walked up behind the stage and spoke to Lauren, the lead singer.   While we were talking, I notice a guy raking the sand behind the stage.   I asked Lauren if the guy was looking for something.   Sure enough he had flung his wedding band off his finger while he was trying to loosen up his fingers.   I walked over and asked if needed help.   I told him I had a metal detector and I help people recover lost rings.

I walked to the truck and pulled out the detector and my sand scoop.   I thought this would be a simple find, Man was I wrong.   There was so many bottle caps, not to mention he had raked over the spot it had fallen.   After almost 3 hours of cleaning the area of bottle caps and pull tabs, I still had not found the ring.   I was tired and thirsty.   I needed to find me some water and take a break.

After getting a bottle of water and detecting the beach for an hour, I headed back to the dunes behind the stage.   I was bound and determined to find the wedding band.   One, I didn’t want to let the guy down and two, this was not just any wedding band.   This was the band his dad wore for over fifty years.  It was the one his mom had given his dad when they were married.   His dad gave it to him to wear after his mom died.

I walked over to the area and said a quick prayer.  I waved the detector and got a good signal.   I took out the pinpointer and was thinking I would have another pull tab.   A few scoops of sand with my hands and there it was.    Thank you Jesus!

I sent Frank a text telling him I had given up   He text back thanking me for trying.   Then I text him back and told him I only have up for a little while and went back    I sent him the picture of the ring.   He was very happy    Now his wife would be happy again and his dad would keep him in his will.

i will post return soon

 

 

Two Gold and Jeweled Rings Lost at Will Rogers State Beach…Found and Joyously Returned

Megana called this morning, she had been at the beach last night, taken her rings off to put in her bag, and when she got home realized they were not in the bag. One of the rings was given to her as the only granddaughter of her grandfather. That ring had been his mother’s mothers ring. The other ring had been given to her by her mother, so these rings had a very important significance to her.  The only place she could think they were was in the sand on the beach. She wanted to know if I could come and help her find them. I was worried after asking some questions that the county beach sifters had gotten them already, but told her that I would be there as soon as possible.

When I got to the beach, I could see the sifting machines working the beach, and my heart sunk. I asked Megana if the sand where she believed the rings were lost was smooth, and she told me no, so I encouraged her to stand in the area, and make the machine go around her if necessary so it would not get her rings, which she agreed to do as I assembled my equipment. When I reached the spot she showed me where she had been, and where she moved around to. There was a group of mothers with their children for a day at the beach that were in the area as well, and they agreed to move if necessary in order for me to do a thorough search. I made about 8 passes in my grid, finding bottle caps, tent stakes, and numerous other pieces of metal. On the 9th pass I got a good solid signal, scooped, and there in the bottom were Megana’s 2 rings. I held them up, and she ran over so surprised and happy that they had been found. She told me that she was unable to sleep very well last night, but I knew she would have a good night’s sleep this night! What a great day!

I got a call from Bryan last night. He had lost his iPhone at the beach earlier, and was in desperate need of assistance. He had buried it earlier in order to go in the water and not have to worry about someone walking off with it. It happened to be a work phone, and he was on a business trip from out of state, scheduled to leave today with the boarding pass on the phone. I told him I would be there as soon as possible, so as not leave the phone there until the morning when the county sifting machines would go through, and the phone would be forever gone.

When I got there Bryan took me to the area of the loss, and I could see he had spent a good amount of time gridding the area, but without any luck. I started my search, and on my first pass, got a large signal, dug a little, and retrieved Bryan’s phone. He was very happy, but did not want his picture taken, so as not to be known for losing his company’s phone; understood.
