*** Memo called me, telling me his wife was upset because she had lost a ring in a city lake while feeding ducks. I assumed she had lost her ring but she had actually lost an hierloom ring that was Memo’s. A ring that had belonged to his father that was given to him by his late father.

The day of the loss, Joanna had taken the ring to have it cleaned. On her way home she stopped by the city park lake to feed the ducks. She was wearing the ring on her finger because she thought it was safest place to keep it. As she was feeding the ducks she felt the ring slip off her finger and heard it splash in the lake.

That night Memo returned to the lake with a flashlight spending a couple hours hoping he could recover the ring. The next day he had  a guy with a metal detector search the area without success.

I met Memo and Joanna the third day after the loss of his very sentimental ring. They were upset and losing hope of ever finding this ring. It was helpful to have Joanna there to show me the place she had been standing and how she was gently tossing bread crumbs with a underhand motion.

The lake has a cement bottom without metal rebar which was a good thing. On the other hand the cement bottom made it difficult to retrieve flat metal objects, like coins and pull tabs. I started by dragging a high power magnet through the 20’x 40ft area to remove all the ferrous metals. This lake is more than 50 years old and was surprisingly clean of trash except for many coins. 

I was able to get out to shoulder deep water using a 6” coil which is more efficient in areas with many metal objects which can mask a ring. My plan was to clear this zone before having to dawn my Nemo surface air supply for searching deeper water.

I started off using discriminating modes of my detector. Then I went to all metal mode to remove any signals that can interfere with the detection of the ring. It was a tedious search and time consuming, yielding more than 50 coins.

After more than three hours of searching the relatively small area. Joanna and Memo had been patiently standing by waiting and I’m sure they were losing hope that the ring would be found. They even asked me if I thought the ducks could have eaten the ring. 

Joanna was going to get us some coffee. Just after I told her what I would like. I took one more scoop to retrieve a signal and BOOM!! .. Big Gold and Diamond ring in the scoop.

Right away I told Memo to stop Joanna. I was finished searching. He looked confused why I said that. He said, why? That’s when I held out the scoop saying, because I found your ring.

It was a great reunion of this so sentimental ring. After three days of searching and looking at a real possibility of not finding the ring. Within seconds everything turned into a joyful moment for everyone, including myself.

What an awesome couple and a special pleasure to be able to help Memo and Joanna. A moment to remember forever.!!

Lost Gold wedding Band in Whonnock Lake, Maple Ridge

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I got a call from young man that told me that he lost his wedding ring at Whonnock Lake in Maple Ridge and that he and his wife and friends searched for over an hour but had no luck finding it.I know this lake well as I have found a couple of lost rings for the owners in the past and from the description of the area he described it sounded like an easy search. We made arrangements to meet early the next morning and I drove them to the search site.When the young man showed me the area it was a fare way out in the cool morning water to where he lost his 2 month old gold wedding band. We started the search and it wasn’t exactly the perfect conditions I was hoping for due to large odd shaped rocks that made it extremely hard to search with my sand scoop. After a few dives down to check and if I could spot my signal, I had to stop due to the fact it was nearly impossible to see anything in the water.I continued to go after a good strong signal, I was sure it was his ring but had a tough time scooping it up with all the big rocks around. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Then after 20 minutes I looked into my scoop and saw the sweet site of gold! I love that feeling because I know good that young man and his wife would feel…These were two very nice people who were in love and I know how much they wanted their ring back where it belonged. These rings travel 12,000 km from Iran to Vancouver for that wedding day, only two months ago OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I truly have the greatest job in the world…I get to find peoples lost smiles… thank you so much for reading my post… until the next one!Lost your ring…Call me ASAPBest, Chris TurnerYou can watch the video of the search below…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mY2fdKIbuk
