Family Heirlooms Rescued after House Fire (Houston, Texas)

100 year old Gold pocket watch and two sentimental bracelets.

02/01/2016

I was contacted by a homeowner who said she was searching  the internet for information on how to rent and or use a metal detector. The homeowner said she came across “The Ring Finders” on the web and placed the call.

The homeowner said her mothers home had recently burned, and they were preparing to sell the house. She said before doing such, she desperately wanted to find a very important family heirloom, her fathers Gold Pocket Watch. The homeowner said, she was sure the watch and few other precious family heirlooms had been placed in the attic several years back, when the home was threatened by rising flood waters.

The homeowner said following the fire, a decision was made to sell the home and find an alternate living place. She said, she could not let go of the hope that even after all of the destruction of the fire she might find her fathers pocket watch.

02/03/2016

I met with the homeowner at the residence in Houston today to search for the lost pocket watch and the two other sentimental bracelets. The fire had devastated the interior of the home, and with a close examination of the remaining structure it appeared solid enough to conduct the search.

Lost Texas A&M Ring Found by John Volek

Lost Texas A&M Ring at Crystal Beach, Texas (Found)

10-12-2015

I received the following e-mail today:

My wife lost her Aggie ring today about 7pm in about four to five feet of water today about thirty or so yards from the beach. I have no idea if it’s even feasible to look in the surf like that but I figured I would try. We are staying at 1109 Blue Water in Crystal Beach. If you are willing to look please let me know. Thank you for your time.

Zachary

I have worked Crystal Beach before knowing it is located on the Bolivar Peninsula, just east of Galveston, and only accessible from the west by ferry boat. The ferry boat during the peak season can be a nightmare one often has to wait in line for hours to get to the other side. I was glad we were in the off-season.

I called Zachary back and he explained how his wife Paula had lost her Texas A&M Graduate Ring in the Surf on Crystal Beach. Zachary said he had a very good idea of where the ring had landed in the water. Zachary said he had made some marking on the sand to maintain the drop location in the water. In short, great job Zachary, this was the main factor in the recovery.

Zachary sent a few pictures of the beach and sand markings illustrating the ring drop zone in the water. Zachary and I made plans to meet early the next morning on Crystal Beach to search for the ring.

Back to the ferry boat discussion, cost me an hour each way, with little or no traffic, not sure what the ferry boat guys are up to?

I pulled onto the beach with the provided instructions and knew I was in the right spot. I immediately saw a large tent shade with the Texas A&M logo printed on the roof. Zachary and Paula quickly laid out the ground work, and we set out to find her lost ring.

The beach at Bolivar Peninsula took the brunt of Hurricane IKE, and restoration-rebuilding was evident with several nice new homes at the shoreline.

Zachary walked out into the water and set the perimeter for where we needed to conduct the search. I worked the grid east to west, pulling up a few deep targets, just didn’t want to make a mistake and miss the ring. I reset my search and started working north to south and hit the ring on the second pass.

Lost Wedding Ring in the Ocean at Surfside Beach in Surfside, Texas (Found)

08/02/2015

I received the following email Sunday night from Christopher.

Hello John,

I have just come across your site.  My wife and I have lost her wedding ring and band at Surfside beach (main entrance).  We lost it around 11 am on 8/2 while playing with our son in the water.

I have attached an image of the area in the water where we were (shin deep at the time) and a picture of her wedding ring from our wedding.

Sincerely,

Chris

I spoke with Christopher first thing Monday morning and was given an outline of how and where he believed the rings had been lost. Christopher said they were at the beach Sunday and when preparing to leave when they realized the rings had been lost. Christopher said he was pretty sure the rings were lost in ankle deep water in a specific spot of the beach. Christopher also mentioned they had built some sandcastles in the sand in the same general area.

Christopher said during the ride back to Austin, his wife was on Google trying to find HELP! when she came across “The Ring Finders” website.

I expressed a sense of urgency in any recovery effort, the Texas Coast can be brutal with heavy wave action, current, and shifting sands.

Christopher sent an aerial photograph of the area needing to be searched, and his detailed account of the location was re-assuring.

I packed up and headed for Surfside shortly after our phone conversation, making it to the beach around 9 am. The beach was amazing, little or no wave action, and nearly secluded outside of a few fisherman.

The attached YouTube video provides an accurate outline of the recovery and the steps involved.

Lost Earring League City, Texas (Found) by John Volek

Contact: 1-281-330-7758

Lost Diamond Earring in the grass League City, Texas (Found)

I was contact by Ashley yesterday regarding her daughters lost earring at a residence in League City, Texas. Ashley said her daughter had finishing swimming lessons yesterday and was in the process of getting into dry clothes when her earring was snagged and pulled from her ear.

Ashley said they were pretty sure it landed in the grass where her daughter had been changing clothes. Ashley said her husband had found the earring backing in the street next to where they had been changing clothes. Ashley said the earring were very important to her, they had been purchased in Aruba for her daughter by her father. Ashley said they had spend several hours searching on their hands and knees for the lost earring in the grass.

Ashley said she found a friend on Facebook, who’s daughter had lost an earring and it had been found by a member of “The Ring Finders” You guessed right, I was that person, and Ashley placed the call. I told Ashley small earring can be an extremely difficult to locate and several variables could have an effect on a positive outcome.

Ashley and I both agreed it was worth a shot. We met today to search for the missing earring. Unfortunate as it is, I had a great GoPro video of this recovery, several special moments like Ashley’s daughter telling me I better find her missing earring, because her grandfather bought those for her. I some how again, jumped the GoPro camera into picture mode, and didn’t record a darn thing, sorry Ashley!

I am working a solution for this issue, hopefully this will be the last time “that Kodak moments are lost”

Additional notes, my most sensitive handheld pin-pointer the TRX was just barely able to recognize this very small earring.

Ashley directed me to the area needing to be searched, I used the AT Gold with the small super sniper coil and ran a test on the other matched earring. The AT Gold picked up the matched earring with a nice soft tone and a pretty consistent signal in the upper 50’s.  I was marking off several negative finds, using small orange stakes to by-pass the previously searched targets. None of them up to that point had that nice soft tone I was listening for.

A few feet outside of the search area, I heard a nice soft tone, and consistent numbers with that of the matched earring. I looked down and saw a slight glimmer of something shiny down in the grass “BINGO”, one happy mom an daughter.

The Ring Finders Houston, Texas

I was contacted by Jon and Kerry today regarding Kerry’s Lost Engagement Ring-part of her Wedding Ring in Katy, Texas. Jon said they had been out walking when Kerry motioned with her hand and her ring went flying. John said the ring had landed in the grass near some businesses where they had been walking . Jon said they searched for an hour and could not find the ring. Jon said he went one step further and rented a Garrett Ace 250, but not being familiar with metal detector he wasn’t having any luck.

Jon said Kerry searched the internet for help and came across “The Ring Finders” and placed the call. The search was successful and Kerry was re-united with her missing Wedding-Engagement Ring today.

Great day in Texas…..

Lost Wedding Ring Found in Houston, Texas

The Ring Finders Houston, Texas

07/12/2015

I was contacted  Anthony and Jackie regarding Anthony’s lost wedding ring at their apartments pool in Houston, Texas. Anthony said he had been playing in the pool with one of their children when he felt his ring fly of his finger. Anthony said he searched for several hours, but he and Jackie were unable to find he missing wedding ring.

Anthony and Jackie searched the internet and found “The Ring Finders” and placed the call.

I met with Anthony and Jackie today, and after surveying the site, I asked Anthony to get back into the swimming pool and demonstrate his actions when he lost his ring. I had Anthony place a quarter between his finders and we did several test throws to see where his ring might have landed.

The practice throws were the key, on his third practice throw with the quarter it landed on the opposite side of the swimming pool. This was an area previously not searched by Anthony and Jackie, not thinking the ring was on the opposite side of the pool.

The ring was found moments later and Anthony was re-united with his missing wedding ring.

Anthony and Jackie were a great couple and it was a pleasure helping them find their lost ring.

Estate Search for Gold Krugerrands

Estate Search for Gold Krugerrands

I was contacted by a resident in Houston regarding the possibility of buried Gold Krugerrands on his property. The homeowner reported that a family member may have previously buried one or more of the gold coins in a very specific location on the property. The homeowner was also was aware that they may have been removed previously by the same family member.

The homeowner was looking to verify if the coins where in the described location, or if they had previously been removed. The homeowner had taken some measures himself to search for the coins. The homeowner had excavated a large portion of the dirt from the small area in question with no results.

The excavated dirt as well as the area in question was extensively scanned and examined with the CTX 3030 with negative results. I was able to scan the sample coin on the ground, and it came back as a solid 1245, in a combined search mode. This was extremely helpful, although it did not prevent me from digging anything and everything made of metal.

Unfortunately, we didn’t find any additional Gold Krugerrands, but I found the story very interesting, and it’s every treasure hunters dream.

The name of the client and the scene audio in the post has been excluded for obvious reason.

Lost Gold and Diamond Nugget Ring Found Pasadena, Texas

07/06/2015

I was contact by Kathleen regarding a lost gold ring in the backyard of her residence. Kathleen said, her boyfriend had been playing water volleyball in the pool when his ring flew off his finger. Kathleen said after an unsuccessful effort at finding the ring, she located “The Ring Finders” online.

I met with Kathleen at her residence this afternoon and was shown the areas needing to be searched. Kathleen believed the ring might have landed in the thick landscaping around the edge of the pool. I searched the grassy outer area of the landscaping first, hoping I would not have to walk in and threw their nice landscaping. The grass area yielded negative results and I moved into the landscaping identifying numerous metal obstruction like landscaping lights, underground wiring and cables.

I had slowly searched the landscaping area twice and was at the far end of the pool in a smaller patch of landscaping when I hit a solid signal. I lifted up the vegetation and saw the ring sitting right on top of the brown mulch. There was no missing it.

Lost Texas Tech Class Ring at Construction Site (Found) Houston, Texas

06/19/2015

I was contacted by Max regarding his Lost Texas Tech Class Ring at a  residential construction site in Houston,Texas. Max said he was assisting in the pouring of a new concrete foundation at the location when he lost his ring.

Max said he felt pretty sure his ring came of his hand somewhere between the edge of the foundation they were pouring and the roadway where his truck was parked.

06/20/2015

I met with Max at the construction today and we walked through the areas he believed he may have lost the ring. The area around the construction site was very muddy, and I had a concern that the ring may have been stepped on and driven down deep into the mud. Max said he and a few of his co-workers had search the area for his missing ring the previous day.

Max reported his had only had his class ring for about a year, and that it had been a gift from his mother upon graduation for college.
