While I was driving to a night search for a missing ring in Arlington, Virginia, I received an email from a gentleman named Ash who lost his platinum wedding band sometime earlier in the day. He was in the backyard of his uncle’s house playing with the kids when he realized that his beloved wedding ring was no longer on his finger. He searched for several hours including raking up all of the leaves that were on the ground with the hope that the handsome halo would magically appear. Unfortunately, all of Ash’s efforts led to no avail and in the end he was quite perplexed and frustrated with not finding the irreplaceable ring.
Just as Ash was about to surf online for a local metal detecting service to help him with the search, he remembered reading a recent Twitter feed by famous actor Jon Cryer of the television show called Two and a Half Men. While Mr. Cryer was filming Supergirl up in Vancouver, Canada, he lost his own wedding band while taking a stroll on his day off. He contacted THE RING FINDER’S founder and CEO, Chris Turner, who lives close to where the ring was lost, and he miraculously found the actor’s wedding band in the most unlikely place. Mr. Cryer immediately tweeted the story of how Mr. Turner had found his ring! Following his incredible account of how his wedding band was returned to his finger, thousands around the world began reading about the elite international metal detectorist directory and Chris Turner’s amazing recovery of Cryer’s lost ring. Like a stone that is thrown into a pool of water, the ripple effect took place where hundreds of Cryer followers on Twitter began reaching out to ring finders throughout the world! As mentioned above, upon reading Cryer’s tweet, Ash did the very same thing by reaching out to me for help.
As soon as Ash looked me up on THE RING FINDER’S website, he sent me an email which I quickly responded to soon after I saw the notification come through to my phone. This led to a phone conversation about the lost ring and we immediately set up an appointment for me to come out to his uncle’s place around 7:30 AM the next morning.
At 6:45 AM the next day, I was in the car driving to Ash’s uncle’s house located in Vienna, Virginia. As soon as I arrived, Ash greeted me and we both took a walk to the backyard where he was pretty convinced his ring had slipped off of his finger. I could see the pile of leaves that Ash had raked up when he was searching for the missing band the previous day. He then showed me all of the places in the yard that he had been walking around and I took note of all of the possibilities of where the ring could have fallen in the grass. It was a fairly large backyard, but in my mind I compartmentalized the different sections that I needed to search and I prioritized the order of what areas would receive the most attention upon starting the search. After I finished all of my questions, I returned back to my vehicle where I got out all my necessary equipment and returned once again to the backyard to begin the search and recovery effort.
The first section that I began to metal detect was located around a trampoline that was set up towards the left side of the yard. There were metal legs that I needed to search around and I was very careful to make sure that I did not miss any real estate that was situated near the metal poles. Once I cleared the parameter of where the trampoline was located, I moved closer and closer to the center of the yard where I created grid lanes for me to follow across the property for approximately 10 minutes or so. Unfortunately, I did not hit any potential target signals during that time of detecting and so I moved my search to the next area which was to swing my machine around and on top of the leaf pile that Ash had gathered up the day before.
Even though my client didn’t find his priceless keepsake upon exerting much effort with raking up all of the leaves and debris that may have covered up the ring, I have enough experience to never discount the possibility that a fairly large men’s ring could still have escaped the eyes of its owner. Therefore, I made sure to swing my metal detector over the entire area that Ash had primarily focused on. Because my client concluded that the ring was not in the parameter of where he gathered up all of the leaves with his rake, he was thinking that perhaps the band slipped off his finger and traveled on a 45° angle behind him. I was quite impressed with his theory that he may have lost his favorite jewel on the back swing motion because most of my clients would never consider that that could even be a possibility. I planned on investigating the area behind the gathered up leaf and debris pile if I failed to recover the ring underneath or around that consolidated mountain of autumn’s remaining leftovers.
As it turned out, just a minute or two after I swung my coil over the leaf and debris pile, I hit a beautiful target signal coming from one of the clusters of gathered-up leaves. The tone that I was getting from the mystery object sounded perfect to my ears! There was a certain bounce to the target signal that pretty much convinced me that I had found Ash’s lost platinum wedding band! During this search segment, my client was in his uncle’s house visiting his family. This gave me the perfect opportunity to quickly get down on my knees and inspect the target signal without Ash seeing me search the curious piece of metal (I wanted to surprise him if I indeed found what I was looking for). I immediately took out my handheld detector called a pinpointer which helped me to close-in on the exact spot of where the target was hiding. As I cleared the leaves and grass out of the way, there it was – Ash’s extremely handsome and sentimental piece of platinum! It had been buried under the leaves the whole time, just waiting for me to find it and return the sentimental jewel back to its rightful owner! I could not have been happier for my client, and I was even more delighted to surprise Ash with my encouraging find! The gentleman could not have been more grateful for my successful search efforts! The moment I revealed the prize find, we both celebrated together in Ash’s uncle’s backyard, right at the very place where he had spent all of those hours searching for one of his most priceless life possessions!
I love helping people recover their lost symbols of love and there’s not a search that I don’t enjoy the process of doing everything possible to return what is impossible for someone else to find! Ash’s platinum wedding band is certainly no exception to that passionate mandate that I live out day after day…search after search…recovery after recovery!
