Lost Cell Phone Found in Roseville Minnesota

from Twin Cities Metro (Minnesota, United States)
Contact: 1-763-670-5544

Keith returned home from shopping and as he unloaded his vehicle he realized he had lost his phone. Unfortunately, he didn’t notice until after he shoveled his driveway. He searched for a few hours before contacting Jason Roberge with The Ring Finders to ask for help using a metal detector. Jason agreed to help and was able to locate the lost cell phone within an hour of searching. And despite the frigid cold temperatures outside, and being buried in a foot of snow, the cell phone still powered up and worked just fine!

If you lost a ring or other valuable metal object, Jason will help you recover your lost item!

LOST WEDDING BAND IN HACKBERRY , LA. – FOUND

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

John was from out of state, working to restore services to the Lake Charles area after the destruction of hurricane Laura. He was sweeping dried mud out of his truck seat when his white gold wedding band flew off his finger. He heard it hit some hurricane debris and before heading to parts unknown in the road ditch. He and a couple of fellow workers moved some of the trash and hand searched the area, No luck. He called Carrie and I the next day for help. Within 2 hours we were on site hunting. Since John had left his own metal detector back home, I lent him mine. After hunting for a few minutes he needed to head back to work and I started hunting. Within an hour, Carrie got a good signal in a thick clump of grass. Neither of us could see the source , so I had to cut and pull some blades of grass from the clump. We both got a visual at the same time. We messaged a picture of the ring to John and soon saw him drive up. Two people had checked that same clump the day before and had not seen the ring. Lots of smiles followed.

Thanks, John, for that generous reward.

 

 

Family Heirloom Ring Lost in Wood Pile.

from Suffolk County (New York, United States)
Contact: 1-516-526-4888

I just turned on the TV to watch some football when I received a call that a Family Heirloom ring was lost while moving the wood pile. The young lady said she move it a few times to search for the ring with absolutely no luck. She then went out and purchase a metal detector and search for the ring. She then called in another metal detector person that she found on line, NOT The Ringfinders, He searched for over 3 hours with no luck.

When I got there Sunday afternoon and asked the different question about what and how she lost the ring. I started a search in the mostly likely places that the ring could have taken flight. With not finding the ring in those area in came down to an area that was cement with metal screening in the cement.  I was several adjustments to my metal detector and started the search.  I received a ring sound and separated the wood chips and dirt and came up with the ring.  The woman was all smiles and thank you.

Made arrangements to come out Monday mourning.  I got to the house about 11 AM. After speaking to the unhappy couple, I said lets start with the trash as that was mostly to be wear it would be lost. There was about 20 bags of mixed garbage, thank goodness that they had separated the recyclables.

After going through about  15 bags and taking all the bottle tops out, I got a very strong ring signal  Sorting into the area that the signal came from was the rings.  The wife said she probably would never see the rings again, Well that didn’t happy and she was reunited with her wedding rings.

Yarmouth, MA. A man’s ring lost, shattered, pieces found and returned

from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)
Contact: 1-860-309-3307

A not so happy ring return to end a year of many quagmires. Bryant had known his wedding band did not fit his finger as it should. It is a downfall of Tungsten Carbide as a ring material is that it can not be resized. As so it remained on his finger until this years fallen leaf removal had to been accomplished. A friend offered to show off his new leaf vacuum and “pick up” the pile of leaves and take them to a dump.

Unfortunately, Bryant did not realize his band had slipped off his finger before the leaves had been removed form his yard. A visual search of the yard did not help. Bryant knew his access to a utility pipe locator might find the ring in the pile of leaves. No it did not. It was a non-ferrous metal detector for locating iron. Next a purchase and use of a low end metal detector did not locate the ring either. It was time to ask for help from J&E Enterprises, a local metal detector dealer. The owner, Eleanor, gave Bryant my phone number.

Bryant’s call gave me the necessary information for a search which was set for that afternoon. A two hour search in rain and fading light, even with one of my best detectors, I did not find the ring. A few pull tabs, aluminum and pieces of wire, but no ring. It got too dark to see targets in the leaf pile. I went home with no good news for Bryant.

Arrangements were made to search Bryant’s yard in two days. The next day I could not get it out of my mind that I could not find a few targets the night before. Now the sun was out, but the temperature was below freezing and I had to go and give the leaf pile another search. And I did search the ice encrusted leaves. In doing so I found two of the targets I could not locate in the dark the night before. Bitter sweetness came over me as I knew I had found two pieces of Bryant’s ring. The ring had been shattered by the impeller blade of the leaf vacuum.

I could not detect any more, my fingers too cold to hold my detecting gear, let alone pick up another small piece of the ring.

Bryant met me after work to offer his thanks for putting an end to the search. A closure of a sort. I offered to return for another search after the ice and the next day’s forecast of a foot of snow had melted away. On the light side the return of the parts was a better ending to our searching than if I had searched Bryant’s yard, finding nothing and leaving Bryant with no closure.

We parted with hopes of 2021 being a much better year for everyone.

Lost Diamond Ring in Houma, LA. – FOUND

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

Carrie got a call from Johnney about 9 am. Her 87 year old Mom had lost her diamond ring while working in her flower bed. With nothing going on for us at the time, we jumped in the truck and drove the 2 hours to Houma. The hunt area was pretty small, so Carrie grabbed her pin pointer to hunt the flower bed and Sid went for the detector to check the lawn around the flower bed. Carrie came up with a hit and the find within 5 minutes. Fast, but not a record for her. Needless to say Johnney and Mom were thrilled, with smiles and (even though we were not supposed to) hugs being shared. Old stories and a couple of pictures capped off our visit.  

Thank you for the generous reward!

Smithtown Beach Lost Wedding Ring

from Suffolk County (New York, United States)
Contact: 1-516-526-4888

I received a phone call from Elizabeth saying that her husband ring was lost at a Smithtown Beach.  I asked if they were at the beach ,if So I would come right away.

When I got to the beach they showed me the area that they were sitting and where they had walked about.  Then he said that he when into the water and that it may have come off there. He stated that he was waist high and showed me where he was swimming. Since the water temperature was about 60 degrees he was in long.  I explained that if it was in the water I would have to come back as the tide had come in and the area that he was in was now about 5 foot deep.

I searched the land area that they were sitting in and the surrounding area.  No Luck,  I told them I would have to come back when the tide was low.

I came back Saturday late afternoon and the tide was almost tis lowest point. I started a search along the water line as far in as my detector would allow.  After a number of trips back and forth in the area that he told me was in I received a very strung signal in the gold range and using my beach scoop I found a ring.

Elizabeth was not at the beach when I found the ring,. I when back to my car and took a few photos of the ring and texted them to her.  I then called to say I had sent a message about the ring and to take a look.  When she did all I could hear were people in the background cheering.  I set up a meeting in order to return the ring. It was good for both them and myself to meet on my way Home. Two Happy Beach goers.

 

 

Lost ring at Coronado found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Stephen and his family were visiting from out of town and spent the day at the beach in Coronado. He had removed his wedding ring before going into the water and left it there were they were sitting in the dry sand. At the end of the day, the belongings were gathered and the ring ended up MIA. I got the call the next day and got the particulars on what type of ring, a photo of the ring, and approximately where they were sitting via a Google map, since they had already gone home a couple of hours north of me and couldn’t show me the exact spot personally. Over a Sunday night and a Monday morning, there usually are several people who detect that beach, but, the area where they were sitting wasn’t right in the most common area, so, there was still a chance it was still there. I headed over after all the crowds had left for the day and took a guess as to where to start. I actually started a bit north of where ground zero was supposed to be and was going to work my way south. When I got the the area, I noticed that the beach grooming machine had gone through the place. Yikes, another strike against a successful search. I turned on my light to take a closer look at the sand, and realized that they just ran the big rake through there, and not the sifter. Good! That made me a bit more confident.  I made about three 20 foot passes and got my 4th solid 14 on my Equinox. The previous 3 were pull tabs, as usual, but, this 4th one was Stephens ring! This search could have taken hours, but, sometimes you just get lucky! I sent a photo of the ring to Stephen and he was overjoyed that it was found and he could actually wear it again. Now it’s up to the USPS to do it’s job getting his ring home safe and sound. Thank you for the reward Stephen.
