Wedding ring lost in the snow in the backyard, Manlius – Syracuse New York FOUND

I received a phone call from Jason who lost his ring in his backyard last night.  He said that while trying to get his dog to come into the house and swinging his arm showing the dog where to go, his ring came off, hit the side of the house and then disappeared.  Jason did not sleep well this night thinking about his lost ring, so in the morning he went to a local store to purchase a in-expensive metal detector.  After a couple of hours using his new detector and finding nothing, Jason’s wife search on Goggle, “how do I find my ring lost in my backyard” and up popped, “The Ring Finders” website.  A few clicks later she found me and gave me a call.

I showed up and after about 15 minutes I found Jason’s ring some 20′ away under their picnic table.  It’s amazing how far rings can go and where the can land.

Here is a link to my short video showing the recovery of Jason’s ring.   Enjoy.

 

Ring lost @ Thompson CC, Dryden New York, Found

from Syracuse (New York, United States)
Contact: 1-315-652-6996

Thursday October 3 2019.  At 7.15 pm my phone rings and on the other end is a young lady, Mai, who is a sophomore at Thompson Community College (CC) in Dryden NY.  Mai was walking between the classrooms and her dorm when her “promise” ring fell off along the walkway.

 

Her ring is SS and cannot be resized, and although the ring fits OK during the summer months, now with fall and soon winter coming the cold makes everyone’s fingers lose at least ¼ ring size and during the coldest times up to ½ ring size.  And today the weather was RAIN and temps dropping down into the 50’s.  Wet and cold, perfect weather for losing a ring.

 

Although I would have liked to wait until tomorrow to search for her ring, I could tell by her voice that she was devastated on the lost of the ring.  She was truly a “damsel in distress” and she was calling me to rescue her.  How could I resist.

 

It was going to be a wet cold search in the dark so I rounded up my warm weather gear, headlamp and all the MD equipment that I needed and started down the road for a 1 hour drive both ways.

 

Upon arriving at the CC, I called her and she met me in the parking lots next to the trail where she lost the ring.  We exchanged greetings, I fired up the machine and “a searching we will go”.  There was a buried wire running along next to the walkway that carried power for the light poles that was giving me a little problem but I worked thru that and was able to do a good grid search  It took me about ¾ of a hour but soon there came the sold sound of a SS ring.  I could not see it as it had worked its way well down into the grass but when I “raked” the grass with my fingers I felt the ring.  So I palmed the ring, stood up and ask her a question about the ring.  When she answered, I then opened my hand and said, “Then this must be your ring”.   Screams of joy, and yes I think a few tears.   Another successful search.

Received an email from Jonathan earlier in the week. He asked if I could help him learn the metal detector that he just bought. I asked what was going on. He said his wife lost a sentimental earring somewhere in their yard. He bought a detector and he tested it on the earring that she didn’t lose and it didn’t beep.

I asked what kind of earring it was. He said it was a stud earring. I told him that studs are one of the hardest things to find due to the small amount of metal. I told him that I could come out and look for him.

We decided on Saturday morning. He showed me the area that they believed it was in, it was rather large. I brought 2 machines, my Equinox 800 and my Tiger Shark. I tested on the earring that they had. Both machines registered. I searched with the Nox it came up as a 1 on the meter.

I started searching. There were a lot of targets. There was 1 area of tin foil slaw (an area of small pieces of tin foil the was probably run over with a lawn mower). That slaw came up as 1 on the Nox.

Just over an hour into the search I was at the swing set. I got a 1 on the Nox. Looked through the grass and saw the earring. The post was bent. I had placed the other earring in a plastic baggie so I would lose it and could place it on the ground to test it. I put the one I just found in it and started walking to my truck.

Jonathan came out of the house and said I guess you didn’t find it. I asked if there was anywhere else that she might have been. I asked if they went through her car? I said let me give you this one back. He started to put the bag in his pocket without looking at it.

I said I might have bent the post. so he looked at the bag. The look on his face when he saw 2 earrings in the bag was priceless. He might be trading in his metal detector for a better one.

Reunited With Wedding Ring at Playground in Haddonfield NJ

Just had the opportunity to reunite Michelle Mader with her lost heirloom, A gold wedding band with diamonds. A tip led me to a park in Haddonfield NJ where she lost it on Saturday. Using my Minelab Equinox 800 with “15 coil in Park 1 mode, I lowered the sensitivity and backtracked her path. Solid ground and tall grass made me believe it was still on top of the ground. About 15 minutes in as I swung and got a strong 9 reading I looked down and there it was. Needless to say she was sooo happy. A big smile came across her face. Doing ring returns have got to be the best part of this hobby for me!!!

Nantucket’s sand could not hide a ring for long before it was Found and Returned.

from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)
Contact: 1-860-309-3307

Rain, thunder, lightening and other commitments started Friday off as a non-detecting day. But for an out of state phone call … A request for help in finding a very sentimental engagement ring which belonged to the caller’s mother had been lost in the ocean. The loss occurred at the base of the Steps Beach, an hour ferry ride away. Having a day to make reservations, pack a detecting bag, complete what I had to do, get a good nights rest, and to think about how the ring I was going to search for was lost. Every ring has a story and this one was no exception.

Jeff had worn his mother’s rings since her passing, I could not let Jeff down. It was Jeff’s youngest son who had unintentionally pulled on the necklace holding the two precious rings which came apart and sent the rings flying. The wedding band was found in seconds, before the moving sand covered it unlike the engagement ring that had disappeared out of sight. Something more than hands sifting the sand was needed. A pool skimmer net was tried next without success in snagging the ring from its sandy resting place be for I arrived.

Jeff’s 9 year old son had a detector but had no luck in using it on the wet sand. With this information I knew I would be able to show and tell about some of my finds and pass some detecting techniques onto a young, budding detectorist.

In just under an hour of searching starting at Google Maps pinned point which was not as accurate as we would have liked. GPS satellite co-ordinates are only good to about a 15 foot radius and the pin showed the ring should be in the water. I started in the water working parallel to the shore, up the face of the beach revealed only a few targets of melted aluminum and pull tabs. Not a single coin or the ring. I then started searching 90 degrees to my previous paths.

While digging a promising target I overheard Jeff talking with another beach goer about how he had lost his wedding band several years ago, rented a detector and found his own ring. “There was hope, the guy detecting (me) has a good chance of finding the lost ring.” He was trying to keep Jeff’s spirits up.

Little did they know the promising target was THE RING and it was in my scoop! Without any fanfare I walked over to the two men, joined in the conversation. Jeff thought I was giving up and it was time to call it a day. I said “almost, not just yet until you look in my scoop” … I’ll let you imagine the emotions from all members of Jeff, his wife and three children.

Time was left to snap a few photos, clean up, grab a wonderful island lunch. I did a bit of show and tell and left a few “treasures” with the young detectorist which he was sharing with his sister. It was then time for the walk to the ferry boarding area and board the ferry that would take me back to the main land. During the hour ride I was sure I would be pondering over the wonderful feeling of how a terrible happening was turn into a great day on one beautiful island with one terrific family. I am pretty sure I will hear of a young detectorist doing fabulous things in the near future.

I do love this hobby.

Received a call from Travis after his wedding band dropped into the surf while attempting to secure it to his drawstring on his bathing suit. After gathering some information from Travis I decided to take the family to the beach where he lost the band since we were headed out to the beach anyways. Conducted a brief 20 minute hunt and recovered the ring in “about” knee deep water, much to the relief of Travis (I think he thought it couldn’t be done 😉)

Clients (wife) review of service: “Thanks so much Jeff for coming out on a Sunday and saving the day! We definitely thought it was gone forever. So lucky we found you. Absolutely amazing!!”
