Rob was cleaning out his gutters and slung his ring off into the back yard. He purchased a metal detector and tried to find the ring, without success. Locating TheRingFinders on line, he called us for help. We set up to hunt the next day. Carrie and I had a 20’ x 20’ area to hunt. Easy-peasy. Ten minutes and we reunited Rob with his wedding band. Thank you Rob for the generous reward. 

 

Soccer player loses ring, lost wedding band found one week later in Peers Park, Palo Alto, CA – Sports Recovery 94306

from San Francisco (California, United States)
Contact: 1-415-895-0334

Adam joined his friends for their regular Saturday games at Peers Park. After setting up the goals, they played three tough matches in the mud that afternoon.

While putting away the goal nets after the matches, Adam noticed that his wedding ring was no longer on his finger.

With the daylight fading, Adam and his friends searched fruitlessly through the thick wet grass with their fingers.

Adam came back the next day with his friends and a new metal detector from Big-5. They searched the soccer field again for most of the day. No luck.

He waited a few more days and finally found me at theringfinders.com. We made arrangements to meet the following Saturday back at Peers Park.

After running a tight search grid pattern over the heaviest areas of match play, I found his ring in about an hour, hidden in the muddy grass.

Nothing beats success.

Cheerleader Loses Wedding Ring Set In Oldsmar, SRARC Recovers It

Christi leads a cheerleading team in Oldsmar, Florida. On Wednesday night, prior to practice, she had removed her wedding band and engagement ring and set it on top of her bag. With darkness falling and practice over, the girls grabbed their bags. Christi gets to her car and reality steps in !!! My rings !!! Racing back to the corner of the field, no rings were found.

On Thursday, Ryan, her husband was able to borrow a metal detector at work. Four hours of gridding and searching delivered a big, fat goose egg.

Ryan did some internet searching and was lead to the Suncoast Research and Recovery Club and their team of Ring Finders. Mark Prue got the call from Ryan on Friday and the three agreed to meet in Oldsmar the following morning.

After dodging a disc golf tournament, dog walkers and a cricket match in progress, Mark started searching the area. The second target Mark came across found his XP Deus screaming GOLD !! A quick search with the pinpointer confirmed it. He pulled the grass aside and there it was !!! He called Christi over, told her to look here …..hugs and tears ensued !!! Another return for the Ring Finders !!

Lost Platinum wedding band in Western, MN resort. Now found!

A man lost his platinum wedding ring while wrestling in the water at a resort him and his family were staying at.  I drove out there for a little fun early on a Sunday morning and found his ring for him before breakfast!

Lost gold ring in Lake Dora, Mt. Dora, Florida….Found!

from Sanford (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-321-363-6029

As Nick stood at the end of the dock looking out over the water, he realized he was getting rather warm. So he decided to take off his sweatshirt and as he pulled it over his head he felt his gold ring slip off of his finger and watched as it dropped into the water. This was a very special ring, given to him by his grandfather and he immediately felt his heart sink! What was he to do? How could he retrieve his special ring?
A couple of months passed as Nick tried to think of different ways to get his lost ring back. He finally came across theringfinders.com web site and saw that someone could help him and that I was located close by. After calling me and explaining what happened we met at the dock and Nick showed me exactly where the ring fell into the water. It was over 10 feet deep so I suited up and dove in. Right at 10 feet the bottom of the lake had a soft, silky, muddy like texture. As I reached my arm down into the soft silt and mud, my hand was not able to touch the actual bottom of the lake. I used my Garrett pro pointer to find a few targets in the mud but only came up with a handful of nails, screws and a few pieces of aluminum foil. So I figured there had to be another way to retrieve Nick’s lost ring. Two weeks later I tried out a new method for finding rings in the water. I had made up a basket and covered it with half inch hardware cloth and then fixed it to a 16 foot metal pole. My first attempt at dragging the sifter thru the mud and silt lasted 5 hours and still no ring. On Dec. 31st I searched again for only an hour and was asked to leave the dock so the city could set up for fireworks. The next day, Jan. 1st, I went back and after one and a half hours….I could hardly believe my eyes! There in the sifter was Nick’s lost gold ring! I sent Nick a photo and asked him if that was his ring? And as he showed the photo to his family, they all joyously celebrated together! It took 8 hours of hard work to find Nick’s ring and it was so very rewarding and satisfying to finally hand it over to him. Thank you Nick for calling me and for giving me the opportunity to help you recover your lost ring!

Diamond Engagement ring recovered in the snow! Jackson, NJ By Matt St.Germain / Jersey Shore Lost Ring Finder

1st Ring recovery of 2018!

I got a message yesterday from Alexis in Jackson NJ. During an argument with her fiance’ as he was walking alongside his car she took off her engagement ring and threw it at him. It bounced off his car and disappeared. She found me and 2 other guys threw the Ringfinders website. The first person there was not able to find it. I then went with my Minelab Ctx 3030 with the 11″ coil and searched all over the driveway and into the yard in the snow on both sides of the driveway in -5 temperatures. After 3hrs i too was unable to find it. So fellow Ringfinder and friend Dennis Burligame agreed to go the next morning to try as well. I also went back to meet him and continue the search only this time i switched to my 6″ coil as the driveway is concrete and had a lot of iron reinforcement which made it difficult to search. Dennis and i both searched the same area and decided to narrow down the area and even though we both went over the same spots with the 11″coils we could not find it. I went over the same spots now using my 6″ coil and right near a heavy iron tone i got a blip of a good high tone signal. I then moved the snow around with my foot away from the iron and the high tone came in much clearer. As i bent down to move the snow around by hand it was at that moment i saw part of a ring sticking out! If it were not for that 6″ coil i would not have been able to locate it!. Needless to say the customers were very happy! Big thanks to Dennis Burligame for the assist!

Just a Bag o’ Leaves – Valley Forge Lost Wedding Ring

from Downingtown (Pennsylvania, United States)
Contact: 1-717-314-2078

Unfortunately with all the telemarketers calling, I usually let my calls go directly to voicemail and if they leave a message, I know it’s usually not a salesperson. Well one of those calls was from David. He lost his wedding ring bagging up leaves; he was pretty sure it was in a compost collection bag with a bunch of leaves. Piece of cake, this is going to be an easy one! 

It’s always difficult to gauge the traffic around Philly, so I like to leave a tad sooner – better early than late I say. And this was the case here, I arrived about 15 minutes too early and received no answer at his door, fortunately David was right on time. After some quick introductions we got down to business. David told me the story of how he was bagging his leaves and when he was pretty sure that his ring when he lost his wedding ring, as it had slipped off like that before. We tried to retrace his steps the day he lost his ring and he showed me all the spots in his yard, where he work, but hopefully the lost ring was in one of six bags of leaves.

I saw the bags sitting in his garage and they were even numbered. David numbered them in order that he remembered bagging them. I was ready to get to work and find this ring; this should be done in a few minutes. I was thinking to myself that I wished they were all like this – nice dry conditions, not too cold, dry leaves in bags, this is great!

First I moved the bags out to a clean patch of grass, so that I had no metallic interference. I then started to scan all around the bags, tip them over and check the bottoms…which one contained the ring? Well, none of them did and that’s when that “easy peasy” feeling left me. I proceeded to empty one bag of leaves, as I had a hit, spread them out and detected them, but it was a false signal. So I had to regroup and start on Plan B, the yard. Things did not look so rosy anymore, but who ever said finding a lost item was easy. 
I grabbed my rucksack and headed over to the front yard, nothing left to do but execute the classic grid pattern and mark them with my little orange flags. I set my detector to discriminate out most other metals, except for gold. On my detector, the Garrett AT Pro, unfortunately this setting also includes bottle caps, pull tabs and those annoying little aluminum snippets from house siding. You really have to listen to the quality of the tone, someday I’ll get a fancy detector. I received a few hits, although some were good, they were too deep. I always want to dig them, but since I am here on a service I had to pass them by – you never know what else lies down below. 

The daylight was fading fast, so I had to pick up the pace. Then, right near where David said to look, I had a sweet sounding hit; even before I bent down I could see the glint of gold as I moved the blades of grass to one side with my coil! SUCCESS!!! It was a nice sized ring, still very clean and polished.

David was happy with the recovery and I was relieved that everything had worked out in the end. I am often just as disappointed and frustrated as the people who hired me, when I cannot recover their lost item. I love to see the smiles on their faces when I can show them the recovery – which usually hold great sentimental and or monetary value.

We talked for a bit afterwards and I found out that David used to fly on the same helicopter I work on – the CH-47, aka the Chinook. He told me one particular exciting story of a Chinook ride during his tour in Vietnam; I enjoyed relaying his experience to my coworkers.

I am also very grateful for his generous finder’s fee, which came just in time for the holidays and ended my Ring Finder’s work for the year on a high note.
