I received a call from Kimberly this morning asking if I could help her grandmother locate her misplaced wedding/engagement rings at her home out in Westlock, Alberta, which is approximately 40 miles north of me. I told Kimberley I could be out there by 1Pm.
I met with Kimberley’s grandmother, and Arlene started telling me that the rings had much sentimental value to her as they had been in her possession for over 60 years. The rings were loose on her finger and could possibly be in any of four locations: the car, house, grocery store, or coffee shop.
I checked her car, house, and back yard with no luck. I decided to head out to the store where Arlene told me that she had picked up groceries and some corn out of a bin and that possibly the rings fell off and were in with the corn. I asked the store supervisor if anyone had handed in rings and nobody had, next I went to the coffee shop, same thing, no rings. I then checked with the RCMP to see if anyone had handed in any rings and no one had so I decided to go to the only jewelry store in town to see if someone had tried to pawn some rings in the last couple of days and no one had. After exhausting all possible leads I decided to head back with Arlene to the house and have a final search while still asking questions. That is when Arlene told me that yesterday she had bathed her dog, washed and dried the towels, and then had put the towels away under the sink. There amongst the towels were her rings!
Arlene was so happy to have her rings back on her finger once again.
Thank you Kimberly and Arlene for entrusting me to find you’re your lost rings!
Olivia called me asking if I could help her find a lost gold ring. I asked her for some details, where, when and how. She said it was lost two days before when she jumped off a roof in her backyard. She felt it fly off her finger as she landed on the ground. Because it was not a public place and she was certain that the ring flew off her finger at that moment, we decided to meet the next day.
It always a mystery what kind of search area I will find when I get to the location. I was a little concerned why Olivia would be jumping off a roof and how she didn’t injure herself. Olivia couldn’t meet me, but had her friends meet me. When I met her friends Bethany and Sam the next morning, they showed me a small storage shed that was built into a slope hillside planter. The roof was only about 3 feet above the planter with landscape plants.
Several people had searched for the ring, looking at the dirt around the foliage. They felt that possibly the ring was in the plants or someone had stepped on the ring, burying it in the soft soil. I set up my Minelab CTX detector with a 6″ coil planning to grid search around all the plants. Then I would use my pinpointer to go through each of a dozen plants.
Halfway through my search over the soil around the plants, Sam walked over to asked me how I was doing. As he stood there looking at planter in front of where I standing, he saw the gold ring glimmer in the afternoon sunlight. It was 3 or 4 feet in front of the direction of my grid.
It was not laying flat on its side in the soil. The ring had landed with the round flat side down, making it difficult to see when looking straight down.
This not the first time someone else spotted the ring before I got my coil over it, but the main thing is that the ring is back where it belongs. Bethany and Sam were happy that we had found Olivia’s very sentimental ring. I love being able to help people find their lost keepsakes.
This guy is one happy husband. While out having a smoke out on the back deck he tossed his cigarret but into to snow and off went his wedding ring. He went and searched for a long time in the snow and was unable to find the ring. I recieved a call from Clarance in a panic had to find his ring out he would be in the dog house with his wife. He asked me if I could go and find it.He explained he was at work and couldn’t get away.He told me the area where it might be. I headed ver right away and when I arrived I could see all the foot steps in the snow where he was looking.I started doing a grid and in about ten minutes I found the gold weddding band. I hoped in my car and headed over to his work.He asked if I found it.I held up the ring and asked him does it look like this.He oh way baby that’s it. H e couldn’t thanks me enough. As you can see how happy he was after I returned the ring to him. Good thing or he would have been sleeping out side.
It was early Sunday morning I received a call I guy lost a ring. He left a message telling me he lost his dad’s wedding band.I guess he lost it in the back yard while shooting hockey pucks with his son. He had just put it on the night before had it in a box for the last year and a half since his dad had past away.On the Friday night while out with friends his buddy was telling him how he wore his dad’s ring on a necklace around his neck to remember his dad.He liked that Idea so he just put his dad’s ring on his pinkie finger. Then that next day while playing with the kids the ring fell off.He looked for a long time couldn’t find it.He wasn’t sure if the lost it in the front yard backyard or if it went over next door.I called him back and headed out to his home.I got him to show me the area where he might of lost it. I guess the night before he couldn’t even sleep he was just sick to stomach.
The ring meant a lot to him and he had to find it. I searched the yard for about a half hour and found the ring for him.This guy was one happy dude after that.His dad had a big impact 0n him and the ring was one way to remember his dad. I was so glad to recover the gold wedding band / ring and return it to him. Kevin Niefer Calgary Alberta Canada
