Man loses Portuguese white gold wedding band in the snow Toronto (Weston), Ontario

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Received a text from Nancy as she had been into RADIOWORLD in north Toronto. She had explained to the sales staff that her Husband George had come home in the wee hours this morning and felt his wedding band slip off his finger. He heard a “ting” after his ring hit the sidewalk!

George & Nancy had spent a few hours going through the snow in the area George remembered losing his wedding band!

The sales staff had suggested to call me a local “Ring Finder”

I called Nancy after lunch and received details and headed out the door!

I had originally started with my Minelab Excalibur2 but quickly switched to my sweet Equinox800 due to chatter. Five minutes later I had that sweet solid tone!!

Check out the video;

Such a lovely young couple! Very appreciated to staff at Radioworld for the recommendation and grateful to have George’s beloved sentimental wedding band back!!

Thank you George & Nancy for you donation to The Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!!! 🌸💖🌸

  

10k GOLD HEIRLOOM WEDDING RING LOST IN SAND LAKE, KEARNEY, ON 🇨🇦

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

I was tagged in a Facebook post for a lost wedding band sitting at the bottom of Sand Lake in beautiful Kearney, Ontario.

I contacted Colleen Morgan. Unfortunately, her Father had passed away and a week later, Colleen’s Mother Dot was swimming in the water in front of their cottage. Dot was heartbroken when she came out of the water and noticed her late husbands wedding band had fallen off her finger!

I made arrangements and with Colleen’s help she was able to get me some spotters to assist me because she was unsure if the ring was lost in 5 feet of water or deeper! Thank goodness I took my scuba gear… As I soon found out the ring was deeper than 5 feet!

I started an underwater circular grid. A little over 20 minutes and BINGO!! Behold Mr Morgan’s wedding band was located close to the stone marker! a quick FaceTime message to Colleen with tears of joy! Even I had some on this one!

Here’s a video we put together

Colleen and her Son devised a little treasure hunt for her Mother in hospital this past weekend. PRICELESS!

I was blessed to make new Friends of Sand Lake!!

I’d like to thank Friend & Groomer RoCkStAr Mark Reynolds for the Facebook TAG!!

Also, a special thank you to Jill Howard, Heather & Dave Smith…. Sand Lake locals for meeting me and assisting with this special ring recovery! I can’t wait to see you again!!

The “Morgan Family” have gifted me with the use of their lovely cottage!! LOOK OUT SAND LAKE…. THE KELLY SHIRES BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION PINK FAMILY WILL BE NORTH to invade SAND LAKE!!!

 

Alberta man lost his wedding band playing football at Wasaga Beach 6, Ontario

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

A western Canada Alberta man named Milton was visiting Wasaga Beach 6, Ontario a few months ago. He was 100-150 yards off shore throwing around a football when his silver coloured tungsten ring slipped off into the water!

I saw a Facebook post on the local Wasaga Beach page and messaged Milton. I advised I was a professional detectorist with The Ring Finders Dot Com and explained what we did and that we were part of a global organization in helping people find their lost belongings. He hired me and I headed out a few days later.

Day 1 was quite rough. 7 hours in the water gridding from shore out to 200’. I ALWAYS go further and wider from where they ‘think’ they’ve lost their ring…especially if a throwing motion was a factor! I had no luck!

Day 2 I decided to try again but go further out…and BINGO, I FOUND IT!!! I came back into shore and face timed Milton through Facebook. Happy Husband & his Happy Wife!!

Check out the video!!

The next day I mailed Milton’s silver coloured tungsten wedding band back to Alberta. He graciously made a donation for my “pay-it-forward campaign” with an on-line donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation. The Foundation then sends a tax receipt! Everyone wins!!

Thank you Milton for entrusting me to recover and return your wedding band!!

  

 

Young Newly Engaged Couple lose Heirloom 18k Engagement Ring in the waters of Gulliver’s Lake, Hamilton ON 🇨🇦

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Received a phone call from newly engaged Crystal inquiring about the recovery process of her recently lost 62 year old Heirloom 18k white gold with diamonds that belonged to her late Grandmother in the water at Gulliver’s Lake in Millgrove, Hamilton, Ontario! A popular RV camp ground, water activities, swimmers, beach goers and scuba divers with no motorized boating allowed!

Crystal advised her Fiancé Garrett of what we discussed but Garrett wanted desperately to find the ring himself due to his fun play of throwing his Fiancé into the water. He purchased a detector and wrapped it in plastic. They searched for hours with no luck and decided to call me back and book me for Sunday morning!

With permission granted from the Manager Debbie I arrived to meet them onsite 10am Sunday.

Unfortunately, Crystal felt her engagement ring fly off. They had a 10′ by 10′ exact area but us detectorists know how  trajectory and ring weight can play an important role to determine its path!

With a silty bottom and not too bad visibility I decided an underwater circular grid would be best at 6″ to 8″ depth with my scuba gear, 2 fiberglass poles, high viz yellow line and my Minelab excalibur2 with short dive shaft was set!

I set it up with Garrett that we were going to surprised Crystal as I felt strongly this wouldn’t take long in which it was amazing it took 25 seconds after my initial set up!!! A PERSONAL RECORD FOR ME!!

Check out my YouTube video and surprise!!!

Well, we definitely surprised Crystal to say the least…. BEEP……BEEP and Garrett and Crystal’s Father a sign of relief!!

Happy to help this young couple out on retrieving her beloved late Grandmother’s Engagement ring that meant the world to them and the Family!!

Thank you Garrett for his donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation in my “PAY-IT-FORWARD CAMPAIGN”!! Using my passion for metal/scuba dive detecting to raise much needed funds to breast cancer Patients! Instead of my receiving a “reward” for finding the clients item, I insist the clients makes a donation to my Charity that I’ve Snowmobiles/Volunteered with TGE last 11 of 20 years bow onto Year #12!! Garrett will receive a tax receipt for his donation!! 🌸💖🌸

Man loses 14k white gold with palladium trim wedding band in waters of Wasaga Beach 3

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Adam & Lindsay from Kingston, ON we’re visiting Wasaga Beach 3 with Family members! The guys were playing with a bounce ball in the water when Adam felt and saw his wedding band fall off his finger into the water. The three guys all started looking to try to see the ring but had no luck.

Lindsay was checking beach goers to see if anyone had swim googles to loan to assist looking for the ring underwater.

Ann Maria and Kaitlin visiting the beach from Collingwood had suggested calling THE RING FINDERS Alison as they had recently saw a post of another ring recovery & return the previous day!

I had been dealing with a blown serpentine belt on my diesel truck and advised I could attend the location in an hours time to assist.

Arrived and discussed the details of how Adam had lost his wedding ring. Decided to complete a circular grid at first but after 6 passes changed to a back and forth grid. After 45 minutes, I had a beauty of a tone.

I had winked to my Friends Heather & Greg (Greg fixed my truck hours before) to restart the video…then the surprise!!

Check out the video!!

Adam was in disbelief!! I could see that he was giving up….but I never give up!

I wish this lovely young couple the very best for the arrival of their first born child in October!! Also, I I am grateful to have another donation coming into the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation for my PAY-IT-FORWARD fundraising efforts!! Using my passion for metal detecting for charity!!

14k WHITE GOLD/DIAMOND ENCRUSTED ENGAGEMENT RING LOST AT LARGE SPORTS COMPLEX Ancaster, Ontario

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Received a Facebook message from a long time Girlfriend Tracey F’s Daughter Senna that her engagement ring was lost at a large baseball complex in Ancaster, Ontario! OMG she was devastated to say the least!!!

Senna is a Fastball star Pitcher for the Port Perry Angels and was in a tournament that day. She had taken off her engagement ring and had placed it in her jacket pocket. Seena’s Fiancé Matthew had even went out and purchased 2 metal detectors from the local Canadian Tire. They searched for 7-8 hours prior to calling me. Her baseball team, Family, Friends and Fans were also searching between games with brooms and rakes. Senna missed her last because she was so distraught!

I arrived after 7pm. I discussed with Senna, Matthew and Tracey to retrace her steps on the field area, dugout, grass and sheltered areas. I started on the infield down the first base side where she had warmed up pitching. I then moved into the dugout area. This is where Senna had her baseball bag and dropped her jacket down to warm up. I had a very low tone VDI 5 on the Minelab Equinox 800. It was 1″-2″ down. I had told Tracey a key world phrase “can you get me some water” which really meant “I FOUND THE RING”!! Then the surprise video/return…..

Here’s the video on the SURPRISE recovery & return!!

I just LOVE it when the SHRIEK & TEARS of shear disbelief & joy happens on the return!! #priceless

  

I was very grateful to Matthew as he donated one if the junior detectors to my upcoming ‘ Pink Power Ally Kids Treasure Hunter Club’!! He also made a Charity donation to the “Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation”!! #PAYITFORWARD

LOST SENTIMENTAL 925 SILVER RING IN BRAMPTON, ON PARK GRASS

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

I received a phone call from Sam from Brampton, Ontario as he lost a very sentimental 925 silver ring recently.

Sam was walking his two dogs in a City of Brampton park. He ran with the dogs when the leashes crossed and came to a stop 40’ away! He realized he had lost his cell phone and his silver ring!

Sam luckily found his cell phone that night but not his ring. Sam then rented a metal detector which sounded like they gave him a locates machine. He then turned to YouTube to find one of my ring recovery videos but also a former member of “The Ring Finders” ‘Mark’ suggested he look up “The Ring Finders” to find a dedicated detectorist close to his location to aid in the search!

I advise Mark my fee and my “Pay-It-Forward” program that when I find his ring he is to in-turn make an on-line charity donation towards the “Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation”

We searched through the long knee deep grass with no success for 1 hour & 40 minutes. After 20 minutes I decided to switch my medium sized coil on the MINELAB Equinox 800 to the small coil! Continued to search and go over the initial search areas! No luck! I then went over the first area search  but expanded towards the path and BOOM!!!! FOUND IT!! Saw the silver and started the video…. check it out!! He’s making a DONATION!!!

https://youtu.be/

I ….NEVER…. like giving up and offered to come back throughout the week once the grass was cut!! But we had FAITH!!

NOTHING BEATS THE SHEAR EXCITEMENT & AMAZEMENT IN THE CLIENTS REACTION!!!

AUZZIE LOSES ENGAGEMENT RING OFF DOCK PARRY SOUND, ON

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Received a text and subsequent telephone call from Holly and Australian Sheila. Holly has been visiting Ontario to help a dear Friend going through brain cancer. Previous weekend they were at a cottage on Rankin Lake in the beautiful Parry Sound area. Holly had taken both her engagement ring and wedding band off and tied them on her hair elastic then wrapping them around her cell phone. She picked up two oars and before she knew it saw them fling off her cell phone onto the deck. She found her wedding band on the dock but could not locate her white gold engagement ring.

Holly called a number of “ring finders” in a panic and took the first one available out of the Barrie area. Unfortunately, her engagement ring could not be located. She was again in a panic mode as she was heading home to Australia in a weeks time. Holly was extremely upset she called me again. We had made a last minute plan but had to cancel with the severe weather and tornado in eastern Ontario and Quebec with heavy damages. Upon speaking again mid-morning she had mentioned her return home and was desperate. I then finished packing my truck and said “LETS DO THIS – BE THERE IN 3 HOURS”.

We arrived at the cottage location, brought all the gear down and I proceeded to do a short grid from 4′ out from dock in and under. I decided not to do the area under the deck with a rock crib which is very difficult even though I also brought along my Detecnix pin pointer for that spot. Closer I was to shore after 10 minutes with 2 pull tabs, then a nail….there was the strong distinctive tone on the Minelab Excalibur 2!!! At this point I had a snorkel mask on without the snorkel as I left it in my truck. Holly was heading up to my truck to retrieve the snorkel and I said “wait a minute”…

After a few handfuls there was her beautiful engagement ring!! B=I=N=G=O!!

Here’s the video *******

We were both excited. She really didn’t think I was going to find it but she flies home a very happy lady.

I didn’t accept a reward for my “Pay-it-Forward” campaign for a charity donation (Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation) because I consider Holly an “EARTH ANGEL” for being here for a month looking after her dear Friend with cancer. I will Pray for her Friend!!! I was given an invitation if I ever head to the “LAND DOWN UNDER”….Sure going to consider that offer!!

I have already advised Holly of another awesome ring finder in Australia “Jean Williams”!!

Great to meet ya Shiela “Holly”!! Cheers and safe travels back home!!
