Lost Mercedes Car Key Strands Couple in Laguna Beach,CA. .. Ringfinder Saves the Day

***  Ricky called me from Laguna Beach, CA. with a desperate request to help him find his only Mercedes car key. It would take five days to and more that $500 to replace the key including the towing fee. To make things worse,  he was on vacation and lives in Las Vegas, NV.

I only asked two questions #1 .. were the keys lost in dry sand and  #2.. can you be there to show me the general location. He said the sand was not wet when the keys were lost but the overnight tide had come up over the area. I met Ricky a half hour at Picnic Cove , Laguna Beach, CA. where he showed me he had set his pants on the sand the night before. He believed his electronic key had fallen out of the back pocket when he picked them up. Although he didn’t discover the keys missing until he got back to his car more than a half hour later.

The tide was receding but still difficult to search. I did a preliminary scan of the upper beach. These were actually a single electronic key fob without any other keys. It’s hard to predict if the key fob would settle under the sand or be pulled further down into the surf. Regular keys or a heavy mans wedding band would normally go straight down into the sand. I couldn’t guarantee that the key fob would still be in the area.

I stayed at the beach for four hours till the tide was low. After a thorough grid search, I found the key 40ft. to the south and approximately 40ft. down the slope under 4”or  5” inches of sand. I rinsed them off in fresh water then texted Ricky the good news. He wa
s there with a big smile and the real miracle was, the key still worked to start his Mercedes after 14 hours in salt water.

I learn something with every type of search and it was certainly special to help him and his lady. Get on the road again.

Key searches can be a problematic because people usually lose them while on a long walk or jogging. Many times other people find them first and don’t know how to return them to the owner. “Suggestion” put a name tag on your Keys and Celphone with you contact information.  There are a lot of honest people out there. Give them a chance to find you.

Two Rings Lost in Sand .. Newport Beach, CA. .. Found

Two special rings given to Jessie by her late aunt were lost in the sand. I received an email just before midnight from Jessie.

Hi Stan! I stumbled across The Ring Finders this evening – I was at Newport Beach today and lost two rings that have great sentimental value. I wondered if you could tell me more about your service and if you are available!
I had taken the rings off because I was taking part in a cooking class for a work event and didn’t want them to get covered in raw chicken. I put them in the pocket of my apron and we ended up going to the beach to take a group photo with our aprons on – after the first photo I cast the apron aside, and the rest is history.
We were on Newport Beach this evening around 6:30 at the end of 49th street.
Thank you so much for any info you can provide,
Jessie
*****************************
I couldn’t get a reply from her and it bothered me that the beach cleaning machine may get the rings before Jessie could talk to me. It’s less that 3 miles from where I live, so I took the above directions and drove to do a search. My plan was to grid search the first 40 feet from the towel line towards the beach front homes. The Beach King sifting machine normally does two or three passes along the towel line.
After about an hour I had confidence that the rings were not in beach sifting area. I could go home and wait for Jessie to call me with more definite directions. There was probably 150 yards of beach that the rings could be hiding, but they should be safe until I could talk to Jessie.
It was 1:30am as I walked off the beach, then I spotted finger drag marks on the dry sand. Set up a grid search and within 10 minutes I had Jessie’s two rings in my scoop.
Sent Jessie a email telling her I had found her rings and to call me so we could arrange at time and place to meet.. As it turned out I save her a trip from San Diego to Newport because I had another ring search the next day near where she lives. (Another coincident ? ). Jessie did give me some homemade brownies, a nice thank you card and a generous gratuity.

Lost iPhone in Sand .. Newport Beach, CA. .. Found next Day

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

When Eva’s Celphone was lost in sand the night before her friends searched several hours, she called me the next morning. She had been visiting friends that live on the beach front in Newport Beach, CA. They have a game they play on the beach throwing weighted bags into boxes that have holes in them.
Latter in the evening she couldn’t find her iPhone. Attempts to find it that evening were not successful. Eva and her friends returned in the morning but they still couldn’t find it. They found me online at TheRingFinders.com. I was only 3 miles away, but it still took longer to find a parking space than it did to find the iPhone. It was found in the area they showed me, but probably 15 to 20 feet away from where the “Find My Phone” app showed them to look. I was careful to dig with my hands, as not to damage it trying to dig it with my scoop.
Some guys don’t like to search for phones or keys because often they are picked up by someone passing by. I usually try for anything unless too large of a search area. Example would be something lost on a 5 mile jogging work out.
As many times as I have found items of value for people, it was still a special moment to retrieve this phone for Eva. Everybody was impressed at how well a metal detector works to find something in the sand. They just don’t understand that it takes a quality detector and a lot of time to learn how to operate a metal detector. If you’ve rented or bought a detector to search for a valuable item and couldn’t find it? It may still be there and recoverable by an experienced metal detector specialist
