Macon Georgia Tag | The Ring Finders

Lost Wedding Band Recovered at Gordon Georgia Farm – Marriage Saved!

  • from Warner Robins (Georgia, United States)

On March 15th I received a call from Matt, who explained how while camping he had lost his uniquely crafted tantalum wedding band.  While on a camping excursion to his good friend’s farm, halfway between Macon and Milledgeville, Matt was taking care of the cooking and needed to remove his wedding band.  Sometime later Matt realized the ring was nowhere to be found on his person or around the area he was sitting during most of the evening.  Matt and his friend did a thorough search the next day, but the ring was lost.  That’s when Matt reached out to me. We arranged to meet at his friend’s farm on Good Friday.  When I arrived, I could not help but notice the beauty and peacefulness of the surroundings.  I enjoyed meeting Matt and we discussed in greater detail the circumstances surrounding his wedding band going missing. I could also see portions of the farm had been taped off for searching.  So with information in hand, the search was on.  I first searched the seating and fire pit areas where a coin spillage was found, but no ring.  My search then expanded outwards from the fire pit in a circular pattern.  After 20 minutes into the hunt, a promising strong tone was emitted from the detector.  A gentle excavation of the location revealed the hunt was a success; Matt’s wedding band had been found!   Matt was overjoyed and immediately contacted his wife to inform her that his wedding band was recovered and was back on his finger. I am extremely grateful for Matt contacting me through and allowing me to find his wedding band.  Thank you to Matt for his very generous reward.  Your generosity also led to a person in need being blessed.  God is so good!


Lost Wedding Band Recovered at Climax (Bainbridge) Georgia Hunting Property

  • from Warner Robins (Georgia, United States)
On Easter Sunday I received an unexpected phone message from a Florida number.  The message said, “Do you serve the Bainbridge Georgia area?”  When we spoke the next day, Lee explained that he had lost his ring while cutting a firebreak on his heavily wooded property in south-central Georgia.  The site was 2 hours away; as good fortune would have it, my wife and I had planned a trip to Florida so we arranged a rendezvous.  Additional text messages from Lee conveyed logistic and site environment details for the search (beware of the Georgia gnats, snakes, and some very muddy conditions). We arrived at the property, which is being developed as a hunting retreat, with lodging and all the equipment to maintain the property.  Lee explained the different locations where the ring may have slipped off, and I explained how metal detecting would effectively search those areas.  The ring itself holds a unique story. It was constructed by a master jeweler from a platinum base with inset gold and diamonds from parts of a gold chain, a family ring, and other jewelry pieces.    After considering the merits of the three locations, I suggested we search where Lee had washed all of the equipment at the end of his workday. Sweeping the wash area with my Equinox 800, I first detected a rifle casing, then a bullet casing, and then incredibly, just 10 minutes into the search, the detector chirped a loud 20-tone for a target close to the surface.  The detector’s pin-pointer function directed my gaze to a bright, shiny loop segment just barely visible, like a flower pushing through the soil in the springtime.  I immediately called Lee over and pointing to the location I asked him, “Is that your ring?” It’s hard for me to describe the joy when Lee plucked the ring out of the ground, but having lost and found my wedding ring in the past, I can testify there is a fullness of joy that makes such an event unforgettable.  I am deeply humbled and extremely grateful for Lee’s incredible act of generosity in finding his ring.  Also, as a result of Lee’s generosity a cancer patient and their family have been blessed.  God is so good!
