Lost Wedding Ring… Found At a Winery

from Iowa City (Iowa, United States)

I received a call from Judy who was very upset about losing her wedding ring. She had been traveling from Minneapolis down to a wedding at a winery near Dubuque Iowa. She wasn’t sure where or how it was lost but it wasn’t in her car. They had made several stops along the way. She did send me a picture of where they were parked at the winery on a gravel lot. So I went on Friday to search for it.

After eliminating one area she stopped at I went on to the winery. Using the picture she sent me I started a grid search of the area. On the third pass I caught a glint of something shiny on the ground, going over it with the detector It sounded off. Yes it was her ring!

I was very happy to make that call to her and she was over the moon to receive it. Thanks Judy for the very nice reward.

What a ring return in Brewster, Cape Cod, MA

from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

Gene was pursuing his fishing hobby and had a big trout on the stringer. Little did he know that Cape Cod’s fish are smart and powerful. Yes, the trout pulled the fish stringer free from the rocky area in which it was anchored and started to swim away. Gene’s keen eye caught the movement and was not going to let a fish out swim him. Well, he really was not thinking about swimming but the fish was managing the rocks better than Gene. Gene went down – Dive Number 1 – and he missed to hold onto the trout. Up and after the colorful fish again, OOPS…Dive Number 2 – took place and up came Gene with the trout in hand, BUT without his wedding band. All the movement in the water caused the ring to go into hiding. The resulting search did not reveal the ring’s hiding place in a bit over 2 feet of water.

Days later, while watching TV and the story of Jim Wirth returning a Manhattan University ring to its owner 47 years after it was lost, a search for a RingFinder was on. I was contacted and agreed to go look for the missing wedding band. Wait a minute – Gene wanted to watch the search. Just short of a week later Gene and his wife made arrangements to meet me at the loss location. After a short hike and a 15 minute search I had the ring in my scoop. I walk into shore and let Gene take the golden ring, a symbol of 51 years of marriage, from its temporary resting nest among the rocks in my scoop.

On the walk back to the parking lot I gave Gene a big at-a-boy for his dedication to fishing to feed his family. However, he does not eat the fish he catches. Oh, if Gene only had a trout or two he wanted to give me as a gift. No such luck, maybe I will have to take up fishing again, but then there would be no time for being a RingFinder. Heck here on Cape Cod there is enough fish for everyone. I’ll keep on metal detecting. The people I have met are far more interesting than any fish I ever caught.

After the pictures of smiles were taken and a stories of West Hartford, CT (where I am from) were exchanged we bid our good-byes. Gene had the fish and the ring that did not get away! What a great __ __ __ __ story! – you fill in the blanks, HINT: found on a stringer, or found in my scoop.
What a fish tale – What memories…

Sapphire & Diamonds 18k White Gold Wedding Ring Found Near Coal Creek… Bellevue, WA!!!

from Seattle (Washington, United States)

Diamonds and sapphires in white gold!

I got a call from Randy who lost his ring sometime last month while driving to a jobsite. Apparently he had removed his ring and put it into a cup (with some liquid) in his console. Sometime later, he forgot it was in there and he tossed the contents out the window as he was driving around the bend to one of his worksites!!!

Luckily Randy remembered seeing a Ringfinders Facebook post that featured my previous find and looked me up! He remembered the turn on the road and gave me a general area to look for his ring.

I searched the side of the road for some time… After gridding the area he pointed out, I extended my search area. He was close in proximity but it was a bit further than he remembered. I found it! A beautiful white gold ring with some really cool sapphires and diamonds!

Lost Platinum Wedding Ring Potters Green Edmonton, Alberta

from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)

 

I received  a call late last evening form David requesting my service to locate his lost wedding band at the neighbourhood playground while he was play with his children.  I scheduled a meeting with him at 8:30 am this morning.  David told me how his ring flew off his finger and he spent a lot of time in the immediate area searching for his ring in the sand with no luck at all. With my experience and of past searches I knew his ring had to be within six feet from the immediate area.

Within five minutes of meeting David, I found his ring and he couldn’t believe that his ring flew that far from the area he was initially looking at.

David was very happy to have his ring back on his finger, thank you David.

Another Happy Client.

Lost Keys Found! Avalon NJ

Found in Crawlspace of Seattle, WA! Lost Gold & Diamond Engagement Ring!

from Seattle (Washington, United States)

This afternoon I received an email from a Hawthorne Hills couple who had lost a ring over the weekend. While fidgeting with one of her rings on the back deck, the ring slipped out of her hand and they heard it hit the deck and roll! The deck was on a steep incline with lots of landscaped features and shrubbery around it, all very viable and hard to find places it could have landed. They searched for a while before realizing what they needed was a metal detector… or even better, a Ringfinder!

After a phone conversation where I got the details I needed to plan my attack, I gathered up my gear. I made it there soon thereafter and started to hunt the landscaped hillside. After striking out around the perimeter, the grim possibility that it slipped through the cracks of the deck was growing. The heat was stifling, and my summer attire of flipflops and shorts was not the best choice of armor to battle man-eating spiders and other scary things (alive or dead) in the cramped dark area under the deck! But once I had exhausted the other possibilities, it was time…for THE CRAWLSPACE!

Needless to say, it was cramped under there. I had to belly crawl around and I methodically swept the area with my detector. Turning around was nearly impossible, and I was hoping to end this hunt quick! Luckily, after some time, SUCCESS! The ring was found and I quickly escaped the creepycrawlers! After celebrating with the owners, I hastily drove home for a “Silkwood shower”!

Ringfinder-1  Spiders-0!

CRAWLSPACE!

Diamond & Gold Ring FOUND!

Found it!

Chain Lost in the Woods – Found in Oakton Virginia (Sept 2017)

from Fairfax (Virginia, United States)

An email came in earlier in the week describing the “chain of events”: Howard and his son were doing some work last weekend along the fence of his property; pulling old fence posts using Howard’s tractor and his 12′ long chain. After the work was complete, they threw the chain in the bucket of the tractor and Howard’s son headed for the garage. Along the way, his son decided to level off an area of dirt, leaves, and compost… once back at the garage – no chain anymore. Howard was pretty sure the chain was in a 25 sq ft area of a freshly leveled dirt mix, but had no idea how deep it could be. They searched for the chain, even used an old metal detector they had on hand, but could not locate it anywhere. So Howard emailed me through the RingFinders and we settled on a time to link up – Friday around 5pm. Once on site, Howard showed me the area, I got my machine ready for the search and off I went… 6 swings in and I heard the unmistakable tone through the headset… Howard’s chain has been found.

 

                  

 

Sanibel Island — Ring Lost in Sand Found & Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

My wife and I received a text message at 11:21 pm from Chris requesting help to locate his wedding ring he had lost earlier in the day at Bowman’s Beach at Sanibel / Captiva island.  (He had lost it when he took it off to apply sunscreen to the kids and had forgotten he had placed it in his lap when he stood up).

Chris and his family had spent quite a bit of time looking for the ring themselves with no success, so we were eager to help them out and we arranged to meet early the next morning when the park opened up.

After discussing the area of the beach where they thought the ring was lost in the sand, we began our search.  Within a few minutes, I got a solid gold tone on my metal detector.  There in the scoop was the missing white gold ring!
