*** Malana was with her family vacationing from Utah. Sunday they spent the day on a small LaJolla, CA. beach. She took off her 5 rings before going swimming, laying them on her towel. After leaving the beach, she realized that the rings must have fallen off her towel into the sand. Returning the next morning they were only able to find one ring.

At the end of the third day her friend, Sage had found my contact information while doing a google search. She called me describing what had happened. Malana was only interested in finding the Cartier ring that was very sentimental to her.

It was 6pm when I received the call.  They was hoping I could meet them the next morning. After hearing the story of where, when and how much time had passed, I recommended that we do the search ASAP. The family had reservation at a local restaurant would be able to meet me after they finished their meal. 

They sent me a google earth screen shot of the site. I was able to start the grid search an hour and a half before they met me at 9:30pm.

There was half dozen family members present when Malana walked me over to the general area. The beach was free of trash metal targets which worries me. At the edge of the high water, I got a signal that was just like the last 3 Cartier rings I had recently recovered. BOOM! I had dug Malana’s cherished 18k gold ring in the scoop. Everyone began the yell and cheer. It was so loud that a couple of the beach front homes turned on their lights. Now we were in the zone and it took a few more swings of my detector to get the other three rings. I can’t believe that I was able to pick up the thin silver ring that was broken. 

What a nice family and Malana was so excited, along with her family and best friend, Sage, who did the internetwork to find me. These beaches are hunted regularly, I could not put this search off till the next day.

…Michael and his wife were at Sunset Beach, California. They were shooting videos of each other when Michael rolled down a sand embankment. He immediately felt that his wedding ring had come off. The sand was very dry and deep. The ring just disappeared. Then after  they spent a couple hours searching, a person who saw them searching told them about the ring finders website.

Michael called me and I was able to meet him at the site shortly after talking to him. We walked out to the location while he explained what happened. The embankment was actually a steep sand berm that the county puts up to protect the beach front homes from winter storms. 

It was a bit difficult to walk and swing the detector on the steep incline. Everything worked out well and the ring was still shallow enough for the metal detector to give me a decent signal. The ring was recovered several minutes after beginning the grid search. 

Michael and his wife were surprised and relieved that the ring was found. They told me that after their attempt to find the ring. Being totally frustrated they felt it was impossible to find such a small item in a sea of sand.  I told them a metal detector is the right tool to find a ring but you need the proper detector and know how to use it.

Another successful recovery for a happy grateful couple.

****  I was contacted by Hoa about helping him find rental car keys that he buried in the sand at Huntington Beach, CA. He had locked his wallet and his cellphone in the car which made it difficult to get any help. A stranger was able to help Hoa call me. 

It took me a half hour to meet Hoa on the beach. From past experience I knew we had to set up a meeting place as he didn’t have a phone. It was dark but we he was waiting next to lifeguard tower #2. Also it was nice to have that location illuminated by lights on the pier.

Even though he was unsure of the general area, because he was confused as the tide had risen several feet. I knew we could find the keys because we had two hours till the beach was closed. I figure an hour to grid search a basketball court size area. It just might take a little extra time than keys lost near a beach chair.

The rental car key fob showed up about 40 minutes after starting. It was a strong signal about 8” deep. The incoming tide had just began to wet the sand. Anyway Hoa was a happy man, he was going to be driving back to San Francisco later that same night. 

Sometimes key searches can be difficult. I try to always take call outs for lost keys, except when someone tells me that they had lost keys while walking or jogging several miles.

Lost Car Key Fob in Ivy at a Pasadena, CA. Yard .. Recovered with Small Held Metal Detector

…. Bob called me about helping him find a Car Key Fob lost in ivy or tall grass at his home in Pasadena, CA.  We set up a a time to meet the next day. Later,  I received a text message saying he could have the gardeners cut back to make it easier for me to use my metal detector. Not having seen the vegetation, I thought I should do a preliminary search before he went to the trouble of setting up his gardeners to do extra work.

We met at his home the next morning where he showed me a 50’x 50’ zone where the key fob could be. The ivy was a small leaf type less the 4” high. The grass was ornamental clumps that would not be a problem using a handheld pinpointer. 

First using a 11” coil on my normal detector, I had only located a older galvanized sprinkler pipe running through the ivy plants. Then I went through the ivy with a Garrett pinpointer. Boom I got a signal 6” away from the galvanized metal pipe.

When I spreaded the plant leaves away the fob was hiding there. It was completely camouflaged and I only spotted a glint if gold that was an emblem on the face of the fob. 

The search was less than a half hour. It should have been easier, but the water pipe was definitely masking the signal. That’s what happens when two large metal objects are under an 11” coil. The pinpointer has about a 3” range. The right tool for the right type search.

Bob and Carolyn had watched the whole search and couldn’t believe how they missed finding this fairly large object. Also this was a custom type key fob belonging to an exotic classic car. It would have at least been troublesome to replace.
