iPhone found and returned, Jacksonville Beach

from Blackshear (Georgia, United States)
Contact: 1-912- 286-7733

I was out detecting Jacksonville Beach yesterday.   I wasn’t getting a lot of good signals,  mostly pull tabs.  After about an hour of detecting, I had a crazy erratic high signal, the numbers were all over the place.  I put my scoop in the sand and out of the sand about 6 inches deep was an iphone.  It was not in a waterproof case and sure enough it would not turn on.  Bummer, as I was hoping to locate the owner.

After a couple more hours of detecting, I was approach by a gentleman.  He came over and asked if I could help him locate his phone.  He had dropped it in about waist deep water.  I asked him if it was in a waterproof case and he said it was.  I told him I would be right back to help look.  I took my pouch and my keys to the lifeguard down the beach, I was not prepared to get waist deep and didn’t want to loose my valuables in the water.  I went back and asked him a few questions about where he was standing.  The tide had turned about 45 minutes earlier and was coming in fast.  I walked out to were the waves were crashing the shore, about waist deep.   He and a couple of other people had already been looking.    I wasn’t sure if I would find it because the waves were pretty rough.  I got in the water and walked up the beach about 30 yards and made my turn to come back.  About half way back, I got the same signal I had gotten with the other phone.  I knew I had it under the coil.  I call him over and told him to reach under the coil and get his phone.   I couldn’t reach down, I didn’t have my waterproof headset on and I knew the waves would cover my head if I reached down.  He reached down and right as he was grabbing his phone, a wave knocked him over.  When he came up, he was smiling for ear to ear.  He had his phone in his hand.   Thank goodness it was still working

This is why I love this hobby.

I am trying to dry out the other cell phone and I still hope to return it to it’s owner soon.

 

Lost Wedding Band Found By Matt St.Germain Aka Jersey Shore Lost Ring Finder Mantaloking NJ

Last night around 10:30pm I received an email from Dan. While he was at the beach yesterday he went for a swim during high tide. On his way back in he was hit by a wave and his platinum wedding band slipped off into the surf. Luckily he recorded GPS coordinates where he was at the time. I went there this morning during low tide and using his coordinates on my phone I was able to get to the right area. Once I got into position I began to grid search the slope and within 20mins I had it in my scoop! It had already sank about 8-10 inches! I sent Dan a photo of the ring and he called me immediately. He was overjoyed! I am going to meet him during the week to return it to him. Another happy ending!

Earlier today I received a call From Mike & Michele. While introducing their adorable little baby girl to her very first beach experience Michele’s wedding band got lost in the sand. They were getting ready to start packing it in and when her husband Mike was giving her back her rings their shade tent and umbrella got swept away by a gust of wind. Mike was able to catch the tent and during that moment he had Michele’s wedding band on his pinky but it was no longer there. A friend of Michele’s referred her to me. I made plans to meet them at the spot they were at yesterday once i got home from work. Once I met them and they showed me the general area where to search I got right to work. After about an hour it had not turned up yet. So Mike asked a few people sitting nearby if they wouldn’t mind moving over a bit to where I already searched. They kindly obliged. Within my second pass I got a good signal and low and behold I found it! They were as happy as can be! A wonderful memory with their daughters first beach experience and Michelle having her ring back where it belongs! I love this hobby!!

3 days ago I was made aware of a lost engagement ring ad by fellow Ringfinder John Favno within 20mins of it being listed. I reached out to Jeffrey and Briana to see.if I can help. Jeffrey got back to me quickly and explained it was lost in the dry sand on the 20th while visiting friends. A neighbor had tried to find it with his metal detector but unfortunately was unsuccessful. Once they gave me as much information as possible about where they were, I went out there two days later late at night to give it a try. After about 2.5hrs of searching I found it! They were so happy to hear it! As requested I left it with the local PD for them when they came back to the area. Another great day!

Lost Platinum Wedding Band, Strathcona Athletic Park, Sherwood Park, Alberta.

from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-780-497-2118

Theresa emailed me last evening requesting my services to find her husband’s wedding band which he had lost while playing baseball at the park.

Her husband Everett  called me this morning and explained that he had lost the ring at the ball diamond and had spent a considerable amount of time looking for the ring with no luck so I agreed to meet him at the park within 45 minutes.

When I arrived Everett and Theresa were  busy looking for the ring. While setting up my equipment I gave Everett some marker flags and told him to place the flags where he thought the ring could possibly be.   Everett did a fantastic job in marking the field and it was a huge area to cover.

After about 1/2 hour I heard Theresa shout out  “I found it” and I looked up and there she was about 30 feet outside the marked area where Everett had placed the flags.  Just goes to show you never know where a ring can end up!  Fantastic job Theresa in finding Everett’s ring.

 

How to find a lost ring in the sand, Spanish Banks Beach… Vancouver, BC.

Contact: (778) 838-3463

Summer is warming up and more calls are coming in…This call was from a young man who said that his friend lost a large gold ring while throwing a foot ball. These searches are usually 100% successful because they know that the ring came off while throwing the ball.

I told them to relax and I will find the ring, it was almost  a 1 1/2 hour drive to get there, so I hit the road right away.

When I arrived and met the party I was introduced to the young man who lost what I found out was his wedding band, it was a huge one by the sounds of it. As I was getting ready to do the search and after asking my typical questions, I noticed there was a lot of eyes on me!  I knew the pressure was on! But not to worry as I also knew it was a matter of time before I find the ring. I knew I would find it as sand eats up gold, but the gold can’t hide from me and my detector!

30 seconds into the search I received a great signal on my detector and BINGO! I had his huge gold ring in my scoop. I loved the reaction of everyone on the beach as they cheered for the young man!

As always… I love the Smiles!

Adam was spending another vacation day with the family.  Searching for shark teeth, hoping to witness a baby turtle nest hatch and throwing a ball with one of his sons.  He stated that he usually keeps the ring home but in this occasion,  forgot…  Adam contacted Emerald Isle Metal Detecting shortly after the loss and plans were agreed.   Adam was very helpful in showing the area he thought the ring was in while he was along the shoreline.   My 2nd target, just after his son & wife walked past, was Adam’s ring!

Lost Gold Woman’s Ring in a Ohio lake. “FOUND” with Testimonial

from Newark (Ohio, United States)
Contact: 1-740-334-7293

I received an email about a lost gold ring in a lake. The ring is the family heirloom that has been passed down for generations. After getting the details, we setup a day and time to perform the ring search. The ring was lost in about 2 to 4 feet of cloudy lake water, which was unable to see anything. So with the trusty water metal detector, sand scoop and continuing searching, the ring was found! She was overly in joy that the ring was found. Now she can keep the tradition of passing the ring on to the next generation. I was able to bless her in prayer.

Her testimonial is posted below…

Her Testimonial:

I do believe and I believe in miracles! So blessed to have had to opportunity to witness one!

On July 5th I had visited the beach and lost my gold ring in the water while catching a football. In a split second I knew the ring had slipped off my finger and I was so devastated. I spent nearly 2 hours waist deep in murky water trying to feel my foot on the seabed for a ring but no luck. People were kicking up sand and boats nearby were causing waves to pull in and out to shore.

Heartbroken I left with no hope of finding the ring. After a long prayer and a few Facebook posts later I turned to the internet and found Jon in the OH area with multitudinous ringfinders testimonies and I immediately emailed him. After an immediate response we decided to schedule the search Sunday and meet up.

The day before the search there were numerous people in the area and a storm causing the water to rise and I was so afraid the ring would’ve moved from the area that I was in. The day of the search it took Jon no longer than 45 minutes to locate my ring in the swelled waters with his underwater equipment and I was FILLED with joy and relief! It was embedded deep underneath the sand and I would have never found it on my own.

This was a ring engraved with the initials of my boyfriend and his father, which had been passed down and was a promise ring to me which I’ve had worn everyday for 2 years. It meant the world to me and I was so heartbroken to have lost it.

I am so immensely grateful for Jon and his hard work to search and find my ring. My prayer to God had been answered and He sent Jon and his wonderful father in law for that search. He prayed over me and I am forever grateful for their service!

God bless,

Shelby

Lost Gold Ring in West Vancouver…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

I received a call from a young lady the other day asking if I could help her find a lost ring that was a gift from her mom & dad and daughter, many years ago. After asking a few questions I came to realize she wasn’t a hundred percent sure it was lost where she thought it was…in the garden.

To her it made sense because she put the rings on just before she went out for lunch then at the last second she  jumped in the garden to do a few things, she didn’t realize until later she was missing one ring. After searching the car and then searching her house she thought of renting a metal detector and that’s when she found TheRingFinders.

Why rent a metal detector when you can hire a metal detecting expert to come out and help you find your lost item…It will save you countless hours and ensure you that the ring is there or not there. I always wonder how many people have rented a metal detector and didn’t find their ring and just gave up? Its not as easy as we make it look, we know our detectors and importantly the environment we are searching and the questions that will help us get close to what we are looking for.

In this search I couldn’t use my metal detector because of the thick over growth of flowers & plants and the fact that there was wire hold the flowers up. OK bring out the handheld pin pointer and get on my hands and knees and start the slow search!

Not long after searching the first area, Bingo! I was lucky to find her beautiful ring in the second location!
