Lost Gold Ring Found in Ogden, Utah

Last night after putting my kids to bed, I saw a text from Brad explaining that his wife was doing some work in the yard and lost her ring. I quickly gave Brad a call and after he explained what happened, decided to make the 1 hour drive up to Ogden to help. I arrived around 9:40pm, set up my grid and within two passes, found the missing gold ring. Carol Ann was so happy and shocked that I found it so quickly. Apparently, they had been searching for a few hours. One thing I love about returning lost items is getting to know the people that call me. Brad and Carol Ann have been together for over 40 years and it was a pleasure working with them to find her lost ring!

Lost Wedding Ring at Utah Lake- Found

Monday I got a call from Taija who had just lost her wedding ring over the weekend at Utah lake. The weather was very nice over the weekend but we had a big storm roll through and it had dropped the temperature into the 40’s on Monday. I headed down to meet Taija at the marina in Lindon and walk the areas where she had been. She took off her ring before getting out of the car and then proceeded down to the water’s edge. After taking a dip in the lake, she returned to the car and that is when she realized the ring was missing. I started to search where she had left her clothes on the bank of the lake. Lot’s of lead sinkers and trash everywhere!!! To make the search even more difficult, the lake shore was nothing but rocks with plenty of cracks where the ring could hide. After about 2 hours, I circled back to where she had took her shorts off and noticed a firepit that had been covered up with some rocks. Since I was unable to get down into the cracks, I started moving rocks around and that’s when I got the signal. I looked down and laying in the firepit was the beautiful white gold ring with several diamonds. Taija had told me that they were celebrating their 10 year anniversary this summer and was planning on upgrading the ring. With the cold wind and rain, she had headed back to her house so after getting back to the car, I gave her a call to tell her the good news!  Needless to say she was very happy to get the phone call and I was very happy to be out of the cold wind. I drove straight to her house where I was able to return the ring! All in all it was a tough search but happy I was able to find it! Congrats on your 10 year anniversary Taija!

Lost Engagement Ring in Salt Lake City- Found

This recovery was  tough one! I received two text messages from Todd at 2am and at 4am one morning as he was desperate to find his fiancé’s engagement ring. He had searched pretty much all night when he finally reached out to me. Todd had taken the ring to get it cleaned and upon returning to his apartment complex, dropped the ring box and the ring came out on the sidewalk. He bent down to pick up the ring and as he was standing back up, heard a loud noise which startled him. As he reacted to the loud noise, he threw up his hands and the ring went flying down a steep hill covered with juniper bushes. When I arrived, we experimented with a penny and had him repeat exactly what he did the night before. He had also tried this a couple of times and it seemed that all the coins landed in a similar area. I first tried all the open spaces where I could get my coil to the ground but no luck. I proceeded to use my hand-held probe to try to get into the base of the bushes. It was a dirty job and one that resulted in several scratches up and down my arms. After about 2 hours, I started to peel back the branches of one of the bushes when I spotted something shiny! I quickly turned to Todd and asked him what is that? He bent down and pulled out his fiancé’s engagement ring. What a beautiful white gold ring with a blue/green amethyst!  The stress and anxiety Todd was feeling was quickly replaced with a big smile as he pulled the ring from the bush. Congrats Todd on your engagement!

Lost Engagement Ring in Cedar Hills- Found

Received a call from Janae after a couple days of searching for her engagement ring. She was working in the yard and took her ring off and when she went to put it back on, she realized it was missing from her pocket. She searched all over the yard, pulled all the soil and trash from the garbage, checked the garage, and even rented a metal detector to help locate it but unfortunately could not seem to locate the ring. I got to Janae’s house that evening and after running through all the possible areas she could have lost it, I started to grid off the front yard where she was walking back and forth to the house from where she was working. I had made just a couple passes when I got a surface signal and immediately spotted the ring in the grass. The ring was about 5 feet outside the area she was walking which often times is the case. Fortunately only took me about 7 minutes to locate it. I went to the door and presented the ring to Janae and she was overwhelmed with emotion! So happy I was able to recover this beautiful platinum ring with diamonds to Janae!
