Ring lost at Mission Beach found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Pete and his wife were escaping the heat inland and decided to go to south Mission Beach. Pete took his wedding ring off before going out in the surf, and gave it to his wife to hold. It was a bit big for her fingers, but, that’s where she held it. By the time Pete came back, his wife wasn’t feeling too good, and in their haste to pack up and leave, the ring came off and into the dry sand. After Pete did a Google search to get help, he came across one of my posts and texted me.  Being a Saturday afternoon, parking was going to be impossible, so, I had an early dinner and hoped the crowds would lighten up a bit so I could actually get to the beach.

I texted Pete back when I got to the beach and found he was already there waiting. He showed me the search area, and I started at what he thought was ground zero, and spiraled out from there. Naturally, since he had been there earlier in the day, the tide was at a different level, people had come and gone, so, figuring out exactly where they had been camped wasn’t a sure thing. After quite a bit of the supposed search area was covered, I was beginning to wonder if someone had already found it. I was finding a few other targets with similar target I.D.’s so I was still hopeful that it was still there somewhere. At the end of one of my passes, I was dodging around where some people were sitting and hit an area a bit out of the initial search area. It was an area where I was going to expand into next. I could see that people had been there recently by the disturbed sand. Sure enough, I got a nice solid 15 on my Equinox and found Pete’s ring. A happy Pete can now go home and make his wife feel a bit better. Nice to meet you Pete and thank you for the reward.

Three 250 lb anchors found in Lake Michigan at Eastport, Michigan

from Traverse City (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-231-499-7526

I received a call from Nancy that the sand had moved and they cannot find the three 250 lb anchors they use to anchor there boat in Lake Michigan. The blocks weight 250 lb each and have a re-rod hook in the top.

She needed this done asap due to the dock being installed in 3 days. Its a lot easier finding the blocks before the dock is installed. I could not make it till the weekend, so, I had my backup go. His name is Dave Coates, he has over 100 ring returns to his credit. The more impressive part is 90 percent of them were before the internet was invented. Dave said it took about an hour to find all three blocks. They were out in neck deep water due to Lake Michigan is about 2-3 feet above normal lake levels right now. Dave did not get any pictures of the blocks so I attached a picture of Dave on another call with me.

9/5/19 Lost Wedding band in Lbi NJ Found by Matt St.Germain

from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-732-581-0285

One day ago I received a message late at night from Megan. While She and her husband Mike and their children were visiting Lbi and spending a day at the beach, Her husbands wedding ring slipped off his finger into the surf while he was swimming during high tide. Based on photos of where they were set up on the beach I went out there during low tide and I started gidding an area on the slope thinking it may have wound up there. After a few hours my hunch was right, I heard a nice tone loud and clear then bam! Sure enough it’s his ring! She was very happy when she saw the photo I sent. I will be meeting her husband on Saturday to return it. Another great ending!

My third successful recovery in less than 12hrs. A new personal best! While i was at the beach doing my second recovery, Chris called me and left me a message. While him and his wife were at the beach, Around 8:30pm he decided to go for a dip. As soon as he entered the water he felt his wedding ring slip off into the surf. He found me on the Ring Finders website. I called him back and made arrangements to meet him on the beach at 3am. He was in the water about 3-1/2hrs after peak low tide which is helpful. I met him and he showed me the area where they sat. I started my search towards the bottom of the slope as i felt it would be in that area and within 5mins Chris had his ring back! He was shocked and extremely happy and relieved. You see, His wife is pregnant and a week late with their first child!. At least now he had one less thing to worry about! Congratulations and best of luck to you both! Another wonderful ending!

Received a call from Frankie Monday 6-15-20 about his wife’s wedding ring. He had said she lost in the lake in bout four foot of water I said ok we’ll find it. Got there as quick as I could. Took a 15 minute boat ride to a very quite cove. I said ok tell me again wat happened. I listened to what she said nothing changed from her story before. No luck Monday so decided to try again Wednesday after work so decided to take a half day of work. Jamie (frankies wife) said she brought her own scoop. Yup this is what she brought wait don’t laugh. When we got back to the spot Wednesday and I started looking again in an expanded area. Two hours in the search still nothing I said I can’t believe we haven’t found your ring Jamie. I’m not kidding about an hour later guess what she found with her scoop she brought from home yes (using my extra equipment) – she found her own ring. I thought no way she was in a completely different area. I said how kool I’m glad you found it. That made it more special to her. Thanks Jamie and Frankie for getting ahold of me when you did. .

Lost Ring and Shark Visit – Gulf Shores, AL – FOUND!

from Orange Beach (Alabama, United States)
Contact: 1-850-346-1736

I was so tired yesterday that I didn’t even write up the story but the day was totally worth it. The night before I received a call from Angel who was down from Tennessee with her fiancé celebrating their engagement in Gulf Shores. She explained that she had been out in about thigh deep water throwing a football when her ring came off. At least she assumed it was in the Gulf, like most people, she wasn’t aware that it was gone until later that day. I agreed that I would come the next day but it would have to be at Sunrise because I was working that day and would have to find it before then. I pulled into the condo at 5:45am after an hour drive and Angel was already eagerly waiting for me in the parking lot. As we walked down to the beach and she explained where she thought it was, I quickly learned that she is just a lovely person and I said a quick prayer for help finding the ring. I got out in the Gulf and it was just awesome. The sun was beginning to peak over the horizon and the water was clear and calm. I was really enjoying myself and before long Angel’s fiancé joined her on the beach. I was explaining about the need to dig the occasional coin when I saw movement from my right. It was a small shark maybe a bit over 4ft long and he came right up to me about arms length. He just kind of eyeballed me and said hello and I thought that it was a great sign. I proceeded to do my first search pattern left to right with no luck. I then went into super detective mode and scoured the entire area again the other way going North and South. As I was wrapping up about an hour later I started to get worried. That ring was not where they thought it was. I walked up and suggested that we move some of the chairs around and let me grid off the beach. I could see Angel getting really worried so I tried to stay upbeat. When I was done with the beach, I told her that I wasn’t giving up yet so she couldn’t either. I told her to think about other areas it could be while I went back into the water and expanded my search west. I was on only my second pass when I got the unmistakable sound of gold. It was such a good signal that I got their attention and they watched eagerly as sure enough I had it in my scoop. There were so many shells it was hard to see until finally I saw a flash of diamond. I gave them a big smile and a thumbs up. It’s the first time I have had to fend off a couple with my metal detector and back away saying “Don’t hug me, don’t hug me”. 😃 Luckily, social distancing won out and as they hugged each other and cried a bit, I promised that one of these days I might make it up to Nashville post Covid and I would gladly take those hugs. Until then, Angel, I am so glad I was able to help you two out and I wish you all the very best! 💍
