Lost Ring Old Orchard Beach, Maine. A ring finding tale in reverse.

  • from Rockport (Maine, United States)

Most of my Ring Finder post stories begin with someone contacting me to come search an area where they lost a ring. In this case however I found a ring while casually detecting at Old Orchard Beach and then had to try track down the owner. A plea on Craigslist and in the Friends of Ocean Park FB page asking for anyone who had lost a piece of jewelry on the beach to contact me with a description did result in a few inquires, including the person who lost it while vacationing. He gave a description along with sending a photo from their wedding album to confirm. The 14k gold band is now back in New Hampshire on the finger of a man named Dave where it belongs. Dave needed a Ring Finder, and luckily a Ring Finder found his ring and then found him, because the road to reuniting someone with their lost jewelry is sometimes a two way street.

How to find lost keys in the snow

  • from Rockport (Maine, United States)

After being alerted by my brother that his employer had lost her keys in the snow outside her house, I made contact with her and headed over to see if I could help. After about 20 minutes I was able to locate the keys and fob in a snow bank the plow had created at the end of her driveway.

Wedding ring lost in Rangeley Lake, Maine recovered.

  • from Rockport (Maine, United States)

I was contacted by Kim whom had lost her wedding band overboard while she and her husband were anchored with some other boats in a small cove on Rangeley Lake,  Maine.  They saved the GPS coordinates and we returned to the site upon my arrival. The silty bottom became churned up during my search and I found myself in near zero visibility, like diving in chocolate milk. I used about 2 tanks of air before finding the ring a recovering in about eight feet of water about ten feet from the location saved on GPS. Tough search with no way to get bearings in very low visibility. While enjoying a celebratory cold beverage back ashore, conversation turned to dogs so I will be donating a portion of the generous reward I received to P. A. W. S.  Animal shelter in Camden, Maine.

I got a call from some friends asking if it was possible locate a PVC drain cover with 3 metal retaining screws, buried under several inches of ice and snow? Snow melt from warmer tempatures and rain had caused flooding in their backyard, however a thick sheet of ice below the snow was obstructing the in ground drainage system from removing the water. The small screws registered to indicate the drain cover location and utilizing some ice melt and a pick the cover was accessed to allow drainage through about 10 to 12 inches of ice.
