Wedding ring lost in field, Holmdel NJ, recovered by Edward Trapper, NJ Ring Finder

  • from Seaside Park (New Jersey, United States)

lost ring lbi nj ring finder jersey shore ring finder I received a call from a gentleman who was inquiring about my ring finding service. He was basically gathering information for his son, Nick. He explained that Nick was off loading some hay bales,  when one of the strings grabbed his wedding ring and flung it out into the cow pasture. We discussed how my services work, which he felt was extremely reasonable. His one main concern was that they had been looking for the ring about 1 week already, with a pretty decent metal detector, and had absolutely no luck finding it. He was wondering if the same thing would happen when I came in to try and locate the ring. I had explained that unless you are extremely experienced in recovering lost items, it could be very challenging, especially in a cow pasture with about a week of rain. Talk about smelly and muddy to say the least. He was going to talk it over with his son, and assured me I would most likely get a phone call in the next day or so. This was a private location so there was no rush. As  figured, Nick sent me a text asking if I wanted to give it a shot, to which I replied, absolutely! Nick’s one concern was being he had no luck, what do I think the odds of me finding the ring were. I assured Nick that if he was 100% positive his ring came off in the manner that was explained the night before, I was just about that positive I would be able to recover his ring. We made arrangements to meet after work that day. Once I arrived I put on my boots and out to the location we went. Again, as I do  with every,  I went over and over again exactly what, where, and how the ring flew off. After about 25 minutes covering every inch in multiple directions, all I had was a pouch full of trash. Actually, I was starting to think his ring may have not came off where he said. We took a few steps back to survey the location, and the only thing possible was the hay trailer was about 10’ or so closer to the road side of the field. I worked one or two paths from the already covered spot, and my machine let out the sweet sound of success!!!! I bent over and pushed the slop around until my pin pointer held a steady sound, and just as I figured, there was Nicks ring. I so so love when my clients are positive they know when their items fly off. Thank you agin Nick, it was a pleasure.

Lost wedding ring in the grass, Manahawkin NJ, recovered by Edward Trapper, NJ Ring Finder

  • from Seaside Park (New Jersey, United States)

I was over on LBI checking out the beach when I received a call from Stephen. He had been doing yard work earlier in the day and noticed his wedding ring was not on his finger when he was wrapping it up for the day. Stephen had stated that between raking leaves, trimming some bushes, and a few other odds and ends around the yard, somehow his wedding ring went missing. I asked him if anything was brought to the recycling center, and his response was no, which was a big relief. I told him I could swing by in about 30 min. which worked perfect for the both of us. Once I arrived we went over in detail exactly what he was doing, and then we narrowed it down to the most likely place his ring could have been lost. After a short discussion, we headed over to the area he had been bagging some leaves, and in the same spot he had been loading brush into cans. I made a half dozen passes with my machine, when I received a really nice signal, and BINGO, there was Stephens wedding ring just a few inches under some yard debris. The look on his face was priceless as I handed his lost ring back.

Men’s Platinum Wedding Band Lost in Whitestone Lake, Municipality of Whitestone, Parry Sound, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Received a call from Dan and Debbie of Toronto, as they were attending a Family gathering on Whitestone Lake, Municipality of Whitestone in the District of Parry Sound, Ontario.

Met up with Dan and Debbie and we headed up early on a beautiful Saturday morning!

Dan had jumped into the lake and realized his platinum wedding band was not on his finger! Brother-in-law Tony, had lost pliers off his dock four years ago!

I mentioned to Debbie and Dan that this will not take long and probably will be under five minutes!

I used my top underwater metal detector the Minelab ‘Excalibur2’ alongside my floating battery operated hooka system called the Dive BLU3 ‘Nemo’.

With-in 4 minutes I had an old ‘Lucky Strike’ fishing lure and Dan’s chunky platinum wedding band! I also explored a bit and pulled up a fishing rod, more lures, a titanium sinker and trash! Always like to leave the environment cleaner than when I arrived!

We also drove down the road to help the Deputy mayor Joe Lamb find a property marker in 5 minutes after he had been looking for it for six hours! Thank you for the boat ride Mr. Lamb.  We all thoroughly enjoyed it.

A very happy couple to receive back an  extremely sentimental wedding band! Tony was also happy to receive his pliers back!

Lost White Gold Engagement Ring-Found!

  • from Chattanooga (Tennessee, United States)

I received a text from Leslie on Monday afternoon concerning a lost engagement ring.  She had found me with an internet search.  As it was late in the day I told her I could come the next day, becase it was about a two hour drive from where I’m located.  I got to the site at around 11:00 AM Central Time.   The couple had been pulling a boat and pulled off into the parking lot of an old convience store that had been converted into another use.  As they got out to adjust the boat straps, (the ring had been placed in the shallow tray under the door handle), the ring somehow went flying.  They looked on the pavement and didn’t see it, but there was a grass strip between the pavement and a shallow ditch, then more grass just beyond the ditch.  I started my search in the grass strip, then the ditch, then just beyond the ditch.  Being this had been a convience store at one time I expected a lot of metal trash in the ground, and I was right.  She did have a metal detector that had been her grandfather’s, but was overwhelmed by the abundance of metal trash.  I searched slowly and methodically while listening for the white gold tone and looking for the target ID I typically get for white gold rings.  After searching the entire area, no ring.  Of course I found several pieces of foil.  I turned off my CTX detector, and was explaing the process, where I search the most likely area first, then expand the search area if the ring is not found, (a visual scan of the pavement was next).  At that time someone from the building, I’ll call him “Tom”, came out and we explained what we were doing, and that a visual scan of the pavement was next.  He struck out towards the highway, and in around ten seconds I heard him call out, “is this it?”  He had found it around 10-12 feet from the edge of a busy highway!  The ring was intact, but had some minor damage where it looked as though it had been run over and stuck in the tire treads before dropping off just before the highway.  In a visual search, the more eyes the better.  All in all, another successful search!

Vito was vacationing in Stone Harbor, NJ when he lost a ring that is very sentimental to him. He was referred to my FaceBook page Ring Finders South Jersey by several people after he posted that it was lost. I talked to him about it, and he wasn’t sure if the ring was lost in the ocean or up in the dry sand. That night I searched the dry sand, but the gold ring wasn’t there. I went out at the next low tide and searched from waist-deep water to the shoreline. The search area was quite broad and I had to expand the grid area a few times. Finally, the metal detector gave me a nice deep signal. I dug into the sand and pulled up the ring! It was buried about 9 inches under the sand. I met up with Vito to return the ring and he was thrilled to have his grandfather’s ring back.

Kyle was tossing a football in the ocean when his wedding band got knocked off his finger. It flew in the water when the ball hit his hand. He and his family were on the beach in North Wildwood, NJ when Jackie called me with the details. I met up with them and searched the area, but the ring didn’t come up. The tide had gone out a bit since he lost it, so some beachgoers had moved closer to the water. The only spot left to check was an area where two people were sitting. They kindly moved their chairs and, lo and behold, the ring was buried in the sand below! It was an exciting end to the search in North Wildwood, NJ.

Beautiful Ring Lost for Years Recovered in Beaverton Michigan

  • from Wixom (Michigan, United States)

I received a text one afternoon that seemed a little strange.  Debbie had lost an expensive ring and was losing sleep over it. The message focused on how far I was willing to drive and the cost of a several hundred mile ring call.  I asked about the ring and got a very vague description of a costly ring with a big diamond and that she was sick over losing it.  She was asking me to drive several hundred miles to  search, but she was not willing to pay a large amount, and that was assuming I found the ring.

When someone is having health problems and losing sleep over a lost item, I figure I will have to go, regardless if they can afford me.  I offered to drive up the next day. I was almost releaved to find she no longer lived in Michigan and would not return for many months.  “I will let you know the details later” she said.  Perfect I thought,  I will likely not hear from her again.

The next time Debbie contacted me it was with a date several weeks in advance.  I agreed to the date and got a precious few more details. It was a very expensive ring and she knew exactly where she lost it several years ago.  She left me with the impression it was a huge diamond on a thin white gold band.

So now I have a commitment to drive several hundred miles, the promise of a relatively small reward, the ring was lost a few years ago and it is tiny so it will be difficult to find.  She knows right where it is in the back yard and has looked hard to find it herself, so no doubt it is now below the surface.

The appointed day came and because I couldn’t interest anyone else in taking the call, I got in the car and drove for two and a half hours to meet Debbie and her mother at her mother’s home in Beaverton.  About half way there it started raining so hard I could hardly see to drive.

I tried to maintain my confidence as I realized the back yard was about 40 acres and it was overgrown.  Debbie led me across the mowed yard and into the brush.  Eventually we reached a very non descript spot on a almost non existant trail.  Debbie stopped abruptly and declared “this is the spot” and  starts wacking at the brush.  Her mother behind me is also wacking at brush.   I cant even swing the detector and in fact, I haven’t move a step from where Debbie  abruptly stoped.

I had enough of this ever worsening scenario. They were destroying the site and all I could detect was the oversized mucking boots both ladies are wearing.  I have never ordered a client to leave a search before, and I knew both ladies were worried as the ring was very valuable.  They wanted to watch but it was raining and I talked them into going back to the house.

As they walked away I swung the detector in the original spot Debbie had just trampled and got a hit, a faint but clean repeatable 40 on the meter.  My pinpointer located the ring a second later. I had not moved from the spot where I was standing when Debbie halted the procession.

I shot a little video of the ring in the hole because it was difficult to see the ring in a picture.  Click here to watch me find this beautiful ring:  https://youtu.be/oRjJsu1IWq4  Sadly the video I made  minutes later when I went to the back door did not come out well. It was hard to keep a discouraged look on my face while I explained it was raining too hard to continue searching.  She was shocked when I  handed her the ring.

I think this was the most beautiful ring I have ever found.  It was nothing like the ring Debbie described.  Yes it had a big diamond but it was so much finer than the plain band they led me to believe I was looking for.

Lost Sapphire Ring, Virginia Beach…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I’m in Virginia Beach with the Gigmaster, Mr. Steven Andrews. Steven gets a call from frantic lady who lost her beautiful emerald ring at the beach, we race out to look at the location and unfortunately they had fenced off the area, getting ready for the BeachIt country music festival. Unfortunately, we had to call and tell her that the search area was out of bounds for the next 7-10 days.

There was another factor in this story… they had pushed up the sand from the area she’d lost the ring and made one long 4 feet mound about 100 yards long to separate the ocean from the concert area and the ring would’ve been buried most likely. Flash back seven days later at night around 12:30 AM. I went there just to search the concert grounds and was asked to leave due to liability reasons, as I was walking off the beach I noticed this with the area the lady had mentioned she lost her ring and within minutes, I found it.

This was truly a miracle, so much going against us and so lucky to be in that area and sweep my coil over it. I reached out to the local news station wavy 10 and they came out and did a story on the return… I of course set it up for the surprise factor!

It was such a fun time in Virginia Beach, I’m sad to go. I met a great member and friend Steven Andrews, who has helped me a lot on how to work my YouTube channels and get more content out there for people to watch. This whole trip has been amazing meeting great members and I appreciate everyone for what they do and also for being so kind to me along my journey.

White Gold Wedding/Engagement Band Set-Found!

  • from Chattanooga (Tennessee, United States)

Ryan contacted me several weeks ago about his wife’s white gold wedding/engagement band set she had lost in a grassy area of the apartments where they lived in Chattanooga.  Because of his busy work schedule he had a difficult time getting the search arranged.  I think he had actually purchased an off-the-shelf metal detector at a local store, but was apparently overwhelmed with the large amounts of metallic trash in the ground.  We finally managed to arrange a search on June 9th.  I arrived at the location at 7:15 PM on June 9th.  I started my search as soon as I got the story from him, because we didn’t have much daylight left.  Around 35 minutes later I found the engagement band portion totally hidden below the grass around four feet from the base of a large tree.  It took me right at an hour more to find the wedding band portion, and it was about twenty feet from where I found the other half.  It ended up being in an area outside of the original search zone.  The grass had been cut, so maybe that’s how it ended up being over there.  This portion of the ring was in full view of anyone walikg by, so it’s amazing nobody had seen it.
