Platinum Diamond Ice ring found in Ice Snow

Valentine’s Day 2019 Recovery

Maysoon called me having lost her platinum diamond wedding ring in the Seattle snow. After a church service she came out to help her husband add some fluid to their car before leaving. Her hands got a little messy so she bent down, grabbed some snow to rub her hands clean and then shook her hands dry. At this point she noticed her wedding ring was no longer on her finger! After a frantic search through the snow with no ring found she called me the next day after visiting TheRingFinders website.  I agreed to meet her the next morning.

   

When I arrived early on Valentine’s Day morning the asphalt was super slippery and the piles of snow were thick blocks of ice. My detector easily sees metal through the snow however her ring was a thin band ladies platinum ring. As always I proceeded with the search cautiously and started cleaning out sections of the snow moving those closes to the metal railing further out as not to miss her ring. If it was there I would eventually find it. She told me that the parking spot she was standing on was full of snow that night the ring went missing. However the next day someone had cleared that spot and shoveled the snow into a pile leading up to a storm drain. The pile not far from the public sidewalk. I kew we had to get this ring before the snow melted as surely someone would drive over the top of it or eyeball it and no telling if it would get returned.

With several hours of searching I carefully scooped blocks of ice to the side clearing each one taking caution not to damage her ring.  Half way through the snow pile I eventually got the signal I was lookin for. After a close inspection I was so happy for the lady that all of her diamonds were still fixed to the ring.

 

Watch how this Valentine’s Day search turned into another amazing recovery!

 

Cheers,

LOST WEDDING BAND IN LAKE CHARLES, LA. – FOUND

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

Susan called to ask for help in finding her husband’s lost tungsten wedding band.  It was slung off his wet finger a month before when opening their camper door. Carrie and I left the next day for the 70 mile trip. On arriving, we found the grassy search area to be small in the RV lot. We began the search of the lot. Next to the grassy area was a fenced area for a water system. Sid hunted the fenced area facing the RV. After 2 hours of searching and re-searching the yard and rock driveway, we had not found the ring. Susan, Carrie and Sid had gathered up near the rear side of the water system to discuss the next step when Carrie saw a sparkle from the rocks around the water system. In plain view laying on the rocks was the ring. Lost items are not always where you expect them to be. After the happy trio took pictures, we were on our way back home. Thank you, Susan, for your generous reward.

I got a call last week from a gentleman who was on vacation from Switzerland with a friend, and staying with a another friend a the beach. It seems as though they were out at the beach sitting watching the waves, that the key their friend had given them to enter the house was lost in the sand, and they were unable to find it after about 2 hours of searching. I told them I would be able to be there in about 30 minutes, and was on my way.

When I got to the beach I found them waiting at beach bar, and they took me out to the area of the loss. They showed me where they had been sitting, so I began my search. It took me about 3 passes, and then I got the sound I was wanting to hear. I put the scoop in and had the key. The guys were very happy to have it back, wanting to not feel as they let their friend down by losing his key. Some thankful guys for sure.

Safety Deposit Box Key Lost in Center Grass Median of Busy Blvd. in Bell Gardens, CA…Found and Returned.

II received a call from a young lady who had lost a safety deposit key. She thought she was holding an old key that was no longer usable, but her sister had given her the good key instead. As she was driving down the street she was thinking about the key and decided it was no longer needed, so she threw it out of the car window. It wasn’t until she contacted her sister later that she found out she had thrown out the much needed key.

When I got there she met me and told me all that had happened, and showed me the median. It was about 4:00 PM, on a weekday with a lot of traffic from people getting off of work on their way home. The median was no more than 8 feet wide, so checking on the tones that were on the edge would put me within inches of passing vehicles. The area was about 100 feet long, and I needed to make sure I covered to whole area because she had been moving, and the key most likely bounced when it hit, and was in an area further along from where it had been released. Fortunately she had another key similar to the one that was lost, so I was able to get a reading off of it to know what I was needing to hear. I found a lot of different types of metal during the search, and it wasn’t until neared the end of the median that I found the key underneath the grass. When I brought it back to her, she was very relieved and happy to have it back. Glad to have made her day.

Wedding Band Lost for 20 Years Recovered in Cochrane AB

from Calgary (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-403-701-1739

I received a call from Mark yesterday looking for help finding a gold ring that was lost by his Dad 20 years ago in the garden.  Mark explained that he is getting married and would like to find and use the ring as his wedding ring. Knowing that in January in Alberta the ground is frozen and like cement up to a meter down, I advised Mark that I would gladly come out to search for the ring but with one caveat he would have to be willing to dig in the frozen ground. He agreed and we met at the acreage that was his childhood home.   I must add here that Mark had received permission from the new owners for us to conduct the search.

I met Mark at the acreage at 3 pm today.  It was a balmy 5° C ( approx 41° F ) as we started our hunt with Mark trying to remember where the garden was because things had changed quite a bit in the past 20 years. The garden was now a horse paddock and the fences had been moved.   He selected an area that seemed to be close to accurate, according to memory.   

We went to work, me with my Garret AT-Pro metal detector and pinpointer probe and Mark with an electric drill that had a long auger bit and a heavy construction claw hammer.

I would identify the potential targets and Mark would chip away at the ground. I identified approximately 13 targets, most were 10 to 20 cm deep in the solidly frozen turf. I was marking the targets with rocks, at target number 12, I asked Mark to roll a rock over to me to Mark a target that sounded good he rolled a large rock under the fence toward me and it stopped right over the target area, we laughed and thought that must be an omen.  After digging all the rest of the targets and coming up with pull tabs, foil and shards of metal it was time to dig the number 12 hole, which took a lot of effort on Marks behalf. As he loosened the soil and scraped it out of the hole I would check the tailings and then the hole for a signal.  The hole kept getting deeper and deeper.  Just as we were starting to think it was more junk, a glint of gold showed then another and another.  Yes, it was the long lost ring, unfortunately it was in many pieces whether from years of soil tilling or from Marks vigorous digging efforts we will never know but we did recover his Dad’s wedding band lost for 20 years.  Mark may get the ring reconstructed, never the less, he was pleased to have the ring back in the family where it belongs.

It’s never too long to recover lost treasures just ask The Ring Finders.

Thanks for the generous reward Mark.

Wedding Ring Lost on Santa Monica Pier on Day of Couple’s 2nd Wedding Anniversary…Found Joyfully Returned.

I received a call from Souja, she had lost her wedding ring on the Santa Monica pier. She and her husband Martin are from Austria, and were in Southern California celebrating their 2nd wedding anniversary, and this was the exact day. Needless to say she was very unhappy about the loss. They were scheduled to leave the next day for Northern California for the rest of their vacation and then home. They could not imagine leaving with out her ring; they had matching rings. I let them know when I would be there, and was on my way.

When I got there Souja and Martin with their little one, met me and showed me what had happened. They had been at a food vendor on the pier when her ring slipped off of her finger. She said she watched it drop, and heard it hit the pier, but it was gone in an instant. They looked all over the pier with no success, and then surmised that it possibly slipped through the boards into the sand below, so they went below and searched some more. Martin went up and dropped some coins through the boards of the pier to see if he could find them, and was able to, but not Souja’s ring. They searched for a total of about 3 hours. They found me on The Ring Finders site and called, pretty discouraged by now. I agreed that the possibility of it having gone into the sand was better than it being up on the pier, so I began the search under the pier. I began my grid, and found a dime, a penny and a piece of trash. I was on my second pass, when I got the tone I was looking for, I dug, and in my scoop was Souja’s wedding ring. I reached in and held it out for her; they were so surprised. The pleasure of being able to help people with their lost items has not diminished a little; check out those smiles. What a great day!

I received a call from Virginia today, New Years Eve Day, She had lost her ring set of 36 years in her back yard, and was unable to find them after much looking. After asking a few questions about the loss, and knowing it was a recent loss, I let her know I would be there in about an hour.

When I got to her house, Virginia and her husband met me and took me to the area where she believed she lost the rings. It was a relatively small wood deck area with some wide sections between the boards. She had been dusting in the house, and came outside onto the deck to remove the dust off of the duster, and when she was done she saw that her rings were missing. Where could they have gone? The deck was completely surrounded by a wood lattice fencing, and she did not hear the rings fall; they had completely disappeared! The only thing she thought could have happened was that the rings fell through an opening in the wood deck, which sounded reasonable to me, so I got my equipment ready and squeezed under the deck for a search; nothing.  Well I have done this long enough to know that rings do things when they leave the hands they are on that sometimes defy logic. So I expanded my search outside of the lattice fencing with a flashlight looking down into more of the wood decking with no luck. I was about 15-20 feet from the original spot of loss when I looked under the ledge of their shed and saw this huge soldered ring set. The rings must have left Virginia’s finger at a perfect trajectory to make them go precisely through a 1 1/2 inch hole in the lattice fencing, and landing 20 feet away; amazing for sure. I brought them to her, and she was very happy; what a great way to finish off the year!
