* ** When detecting on the beach it’s always disheartening to find a set of car keys that someone has lost in the sand. It makes me think of how much trouble the person had go through to get home and how expensive it was to replace the keys. I suggest that everyone put contact information on their keys and phones. I always turn keys to the lifeguards. Probably the best chance to get them back to the rightful owner.

I was approached by Norma while detecting at Newport Beach, CA.  She was frustrated because she had to check out if her beachfront rental before noon. (it was 11:45). That morning Norma had gone out for a little meditation session while watching the waves. She believed it was possible the keys we’re lost in that location.

We had one problem, she couldn’t get me on the exact location. I’m used to that situation because many beaches do not have good reference points. All sand looks the same. I like to remind myself,  don’t get excited when someone can’t remember exactly where they were sitting. I picked a location to start the process of elimination. Ten minutes later my metal detector hit a strong signal that turned out to be Nora’s keys. Another happy person that I was able to help because I was in the right place at the right time.

 

I WILL TRY ANYWHERE ”   CALL for information and help. Metal detectors are the perfect tool to finding jewelry and other valued metallic item. It does take a quality detector with an experienced professional conducting the search.

Lost Diamond Engagement Ring in House .. Venice, CA. .. Found With Inspection Camera

Kattie called me because she needed help finding her diamond engagement ring in her small apartment near Venice, CA. The last time she saw the ring it was on a napkin on the kitchen sink. An hour later,  just before stepping in the shower Katie realized her ring was not on her finger. She wasn’t sure if she took it into another room or if her fiancé had thrown out the napkin into the trash. I talked with her for a half hour, giving her several ideas how to search her residence. One important thing was that she was sure the trash was checked.

I explained that my large detectors don’t work well in homes, but I have a few tools that help with inside searches. Then, I recommended that she try the search suggestions I gave her. If she didn’t find the ring I could come to help her. Two days later I met with her to see what type search conditions existed in the small apartment.

The first areas I searched were the kitchen drawers and all the floor areas the ring could have been kicked or rolled underneath, like the stove, refrigerator and washer. Sometimes rings get into a item on the floor,  like shoes, clothing or rugs that have been moved to another location. I noticed a small opening underneath the toe space under the kitchen cabinets. The space under the cabinets was not accessible, so I tried using my inspection camera (endoscope). It was difficult to focus and I wasn’t sure that the camera was working properly.

 

Kattie’s sister showed up to help her search the bedroom while I checked the bathroom and front room. After running out of places to searched, I went back to the search the dead space under the kitchen cabinets. The camera is on a flexible shaft that takes some practice to learn how use it efficiently. The two sisters were busy searching the bedroom. I spent 15 plus minutes maneuvering the small flexible camera around the 30”x 36” space. Actually I was rehearsing what I was going to tell Kattie because I felt this was going to be a “No Find”.

 

Then,  BOOM… I saw a ring on the inspection camera screen. Trying not to wiggle the camera, I called Kattie iand her sister into the kitchen where they were able to see her ring in the camera. Kattie fell to her knees on the floor and the both sisters screamed with joy.

The rest of the story involved getting the apartment management to arrange for the maintenance personnel to help retrieve the ring. After waiting too long for the maintenance person to come. Kattie and her fiancé decided not to wait. They asked if I could help and I was able to enlarge a hole where a drain pipe passed through. Then Kattie’s sister who had the smallest arms was able to use a fork to drag the ring close enough to grab.

 

It was a miracle find because she had no recollection of moving the ring from the sink. I only felt the ring could have bounced up more than 3” into the space under the cabinet because this was just like another search I had done. Also I had read about another similar ring find by one of our RingFinders members.

**** It was a hot summer day when Hailey’s neighbor set up some sprinklers with water slides in their front lawn. All the neighborhood kids including Hailey’s daughter had fun playing in the water most the afternoon. Later that evening Hailey discovered that her favorite gold bracelet was missing. She knew it was on her arm that morning. Possibly, it could have fallen off on the lawn while playing with the kids.

She wasn’t quite sure where the loss occurred. So after frantically searching everywhere she had been that day, she thought maybe the very small gold bracelet may be in her neighbor’s lawn. While trying to rent a metal detector detector she found my contact information on line.

I was able to meet her that same morning. Where she showed me a similar type gold necklace. It was very fine links which I could only get a faint signal with my high frequency coil on my XP Deus metal detector. The first and most probable area did not yield the bracelet. Hailey looked a little disappointed as I exhausted the first area and then suggested the spot where the plastic kids pool was set up. 

I had been thinking about switching out to one of my other detectors before calling it a “No Find”.  Another time just as I was running out of places to search I got a decent signal. Dropping to my knees to spread the grass apart, I could barely see the small 18k gold chain bracelet.

Successful search with Hailey totally surprised and happy that she called a member of TheRingFinders for help, even though she wasn’t positive that where she had lost her precious bracelet she would feel better if she had the grass searched by someone that knew how to use a metal detector.  This was the type of jewelry that could be a problem for any other type metal detector to find.
