San Bruno Coach Loses Wedding Ring at Practice, Recovered by the Ringfinders – San Bruno, CA 94066

The football field stood empty. It was late in the day when the coach Ryan finally gave up looking for his platinum wedding band. The kids had all gone home after a tough practice. Coach Ryan had been taking blocking shots with a pad from the middle schoolers, teaching them hit and spin moves. During one of the hits, his wedding band must have fallen off, probably whipped away while deflecting and spinning one of the kids.

Wisely, coach Ryan marked “the spot” where he had been standing and blocking. Hours later he was still searching the grass nearby. The kids had helped for a while, but now they had all gone home. The sun was setting. Time to call the RingFinders.

I met Ryan the next morning on the field. The field was mostly covered in tough grass thick and deep in spots, barren dirt in others. From his “spot” of mostly likely loss, I began a criss-crossing lawnmower search pattern over a 20 x 20 yard square search area, found a few coins, but no ring. So I expanded my search square by 10 yards on all sides. More coins but no ring!

After searching for about 90 minutes, we were getting a little discouraged. We met back at “the spot” for a cool drink and to discuss next steps. Standing there together, sweating in the noon day sun, I look down to catch a sparkle in the grass at my feet. Reflecting in the sunlight was the shiny interior of Coach Ryan’s platinum wedding band, just inches from “the spot”.

The coach had imagined that his ring was flung off during practice, when in fact it had dropped straight down from where he was standing.

Sharp eyes paid off today. I’m not ashamed to say that I did not find it with my metal detector because this is the third ring I have found visually.  Sharp eyes and good metal detecting practices are very complimentary.

The greater lesson is to always search “the spot” and the area immediately around “the spot” very carefully first off. In my experience, now further reinforced, is that the lost object is often very nearby.

In 2003 she threw this ring into the street from her front yard but found it the next day. In 2004 she threw this ring into her back yard and forgot about it, the marriage was really over! I was called to assist in locating an entirely different engagement ring recently lost inside her home by her new Labrador puppy. I was unable to assist that recovery, no new clues after the owner had had the dog x-rayed, turned her house upside down several times and sifted every new puppy feces by hand. That ring has vanished in the house. carolyn shirlock large edited small But while sweeping the backyard dog run and plant beds, I unearthed this dirty little golden clod that cleaned up into this stunning .7 caret solitaire diamond, surrounded by swirls of smaller round cut, channel set diamonds in a heavy 14k setting. Undamaged and in perfect condition after ten years in the ground, the delighted owner was so amazed see this again! carolyn shirlock diamond ring cu small
