Lost silver bracelet in sand, Sanford, Fl….Found with metal detector!

  • from Sanford (Florida, United States)
Contact:


Dev was enjoying a relaxing morning playing volleyball with his family and friends and when the time came to pack it up and head home he noticed that his large silver bracelet was not on his wrist. This bracelet was a special gift from his friends as a present for his birthday a couple of years ago. And he wears it all the time and could not believe that somehow it had come off. He and his family searched diligently through the sand hoping to find it and after a while they realized it had just disappeared. But Dev refused to give up and finally looked on line and entered “Bracelet Finder using a Metal Detector” and up came theringfinders.com. A quick search in the “Directory” showed I was located right here in Sanford, Fl. and he gave me a call.

I was just sitting down to lunch with my family so I assured Dev I could come out after we finished eating and if his lost silver bracelet was there in the sand I could find it for him and not to worry. Two hours later I met Dev and he showed me the sand volleyball court where they had spent the morning playing. He explained that they had switched sides after each game so the odds were even that it could be on either half. It took me about 10 minutes to cover the whole court and then I began searching around the outside along the out-of-bounds line. I found a few pieces of foil here and there and then the first strong promising signal turned out to be an old matchbox car and then not five feet away another strong signal. Slowly I brushed the sand away hoping to reveal what sounded like a large silver item and sure enough…there was Dev’s lost silver bracelet! Dev was so glad to have his special gift back in his possession. (The clasp had worked its way open and it was obvious what had caused it to fall off and into the sand!).

Lost something recently…or even years ago and need some help?

Give me a call, text or send me an email….ASAP!

LOST RING HONEYMOON ISLAND, DUNEDIN, FL….FOUND!!!

  • from Dunedin (Florida, United States)

STEVE THOMAS  DUNEDIN RING FINDER

LOST A RING OR OTHER METAL VALUABLE IN A GRASSY OR SANDY AREA? JEWELRY SLIP OFF OF YOU WHILE SWIMMING? PLEASE CALL ME ASAP (843) 995-4719. I OFFER A FREE METAL DETECTING SERVICE, REWARD OPTIONAL BUT APPRECIATED.

I was scheduled to conduct a search for a lost wedding band on Honeymoon Island last Monday afternoon when I received a call from Derek and Rhiannon Sunday evening. Rhiannon’s beautiful wedding ring had slipped off her finger while the family was enjoying some beach time earlier in the day. Even though Rhiannon realized the loss almost immediately, the family was unable to locate the ring in the sand. As the family was leaving Honeymoon Island, they reported the lost ring to a park ranger and the ranger passed along my contact information.

Because Sunday was the end of a busy Easter holiday weekend, we set up a search time for early Monday morning, hopefully before the hobby detectorists began searching the beach. Derek and Rhiannon took me to the location where they were sitting (thankfully they had marked it well and it was beyond the high tide line) and after only about a 3 minute search, I uncovered the ring, pulled it from the sand, held it up to Rhiannon, and the tears of joy began to flow. I know you Ringfinders know this already, but there can not be anything more satisfying than returning a precious item to someone when they thought they might never see it again. I love my job!

Thank you to the rangers at Honeymoon Island for connecting me to Derek and Rhiannon and thanks for the generous reward!

I received a call about her lost daughter’s locket. The necklace was found but the locket was lost somewhere throughout the yard during an Easter egg hunt. After performing a search through the yard the locket was found, she was very happy to have the locket returned. It is a special locket since her daughter only wears the locket during Christmas and Easter time.

Lost Keys Big Bear Park! Edmonton, Alberta

  • from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact:

Levi called me last week regarding his lost Key fob, which had been lost three days prior in a ravine! Levi searched for them but with no luck, and knowing how expensive it is to replace these key fobs he turned to the internet and found me on the Ringfinders web site.

When I met Levi at the park he showed me the location and said he had been throwing a ball for his dog down the ravine. When he went down to get the ball he slipped where there was tall grass and he thought his keys might be there but that was not the case! After searching for about one hour and asking questions I decide to look around above the ravine where Levi had parked his car. He showed me the direction he had walked to his car and said it was also how he walked back. I found his key fob forty feet in the other direction! Thank you Levi, for entrusting me to locate your lost key fob.

Wedding rings lost at Silver Strand State Beach Found

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

Yuliia took a walk south from The main Silver Strand State Beach, and with a simple hand movement, her wedding ring (a combination of 3 separate interlocking rings) flew off her finger and into the sand. She found my name on The Ring Finders site and gave me a call a couple of days later. We arranged to meet at the parking lot the following morning. My wife and I arrived at the prescribed time, met Yuliia, and we all took the mile walk south to the search area. Much to Yuliia’s credit, she took GPS coordinates and also remembered a particular log that was near where she lost the ring(s). She found the spot and I started my search. One short pass and a half and my first signal was a nice strong 10-11 on my Equinox. Out came the pin pointer and just and inch or two under the sand was her rings. A pleasure to meet you Yuliia and thank you for the reward.

I got a call from a man Steven saying he lost his ring on Fort Lauderdale Beach,  Florida.  We set  a time and met up . and very quickly I was able to help him. Please see the wonderful Testimonial and pictures below.

Testimonial:

I lost my wedding band in knee deep water at the beach. The current & waves were strong that day, so I knew the likelihood of finding it was slim to none. As I was looking for metal detector rentals in my area, I found Craig & the Ringfinder website. I reached out to Craig (who responded back quickly) and we had an appointment scheduled to meet the following day in the general area where I lost my ring. I had personally looked for hours the day I lost it & Craig was able to find it within 5 minutes… Truly unbelievable! A very simple & straightforward process & I would recommend anyone to contact him in the event you have lost something of value. Thanks Craig!

Lost Sapphire and Diamond Engagement and Wedding Rings, Midlothian Virginia…FOUND!

March 15th 2021: Found a wedding band and engagement ring lost while playing softball.

 

Jocelyn, her husband and friends were playing family style softball in a field behind their house. She removed her beautiful rings and put them in her pocket before starting to play. After the game, she found her rings missing! Family and friends searched the field for several hours. They even borrowed a metal detector and a rake, to no avail.

Field

 

 

Jocelyn then turned to the internet to seek professional help.  She found my contact information on The Ring Finders site (https://theringfinders.com/Rob.Ellis/) and texted me the next morning.  I made the 2 hour drive to Midlothian, Virginia to assist Jocelyn.   When we met, I could see the disappointment in her eyes.  She probably thought the rings were gone for good. After showing me the field, I assured her there was a good chance of recovery.

 

 

 

 

First Ring

I began my search pattern in the area behind “home plate” and worked toward the “outfield”. I searched into the woods several feet on either side of the field. Within 40 minutes I located Jocelyn’s wedding band to the right side of the home plate area. I left the ring exactly where I’d found it, marking the location by sticking a pencil into the ground.

 

 

 

2nd Ring

Over the next hour and 20 minutes, I searched the rest of the field. I then expanded the search area behind “home plate” and recovered the second ring. I marked the location of the second ring using a softball.

 

 

 

 

I sent a text to Jocelyn asking her to join me. When she arrived, I showed her the pencil indicating the location of her wedding band. She was incredibly happy to have her wedding band back, but the engagement ring held more sentimental value. I then asked her to pick-up the softball and, to her amazement, there was the ring.  We both shared the delight and relief of finding her treasures.

Smiles!

 

Please see this short video for a recap of the search, recovery and return:

Gold Ring lost while celebrating Holi Festival

  • from Sunset Beach (California, United States)

Call Surf City Ring Finder 714-944-0555

Neha called me and asked if I could help find Abhi’s gold ring. They were celebrating Holi, a Hindu festival of colors when his gold ring came loose and fell into the sand. I told Neha I was 10 minutes away but the line to get in was more like 45 minutes. They waited patiently for my arrival and were very delighted when I arrived and found his ring in just a few minutes.
