Shawn SGT Whitey Sherrill – Ring Recovery Specialist – Lost your ring?…. Call ASAP – 917-313-2202. Found my 3rd gold ring today as I received another call to find a lost ring in the snow!
Funny story here. Her husband thought this was a “SILVER” ring! Turns out it was actually 14k gold! I spent the first few mins looking for a silver ring. When she called her husband to check the car she said she had the other ring in her pocket. I asked to see that ring, scanned it over my coil and I told her it’s gold not silver. Then I made the adjustments and BOOM VDI 46 and her ring was found!
She said, she will NEVER let her husband live this one down for not know what metal he bought her. lol!!!
So glad I could help her find her ring again! I love what I do!

Tungsten wedding band found in yard in Reading, PA

  • from Reading (Pennsylvania, United States)

I received a text from Madi asking if I could be a hero and find her husbands wedding ring. He lost it on Christmas day while playing football with his brother at his parents house. Madi and Ryan live in Maryland and would not be able to meet me on the day of the search. They sent me great details on the area they think it came off. They were devastated after not finding it after several hours of searching. I arrived several days later because of my schedule and searched the area for about five minutes before getting a strong hit on my Garrett ATPro. I found the ring deep in the grass which was difficult to see because of the rings unique black and brown color.

I texted Madi and photo and told her i found it. She immediately called me and told me I was their hero. I went to the house to give the ring to Ryan’s mother who did not even realize I had searched for it. She was so excited I found it and would keep it safe until her son comes to visit her again.

Yellow gold wedding band lost in Roseville, MN – Now found!

  • from Saint Paul (Minnesota, United States)

Zach was walking his dog in his yard in the snow when, after shaking snow off his hands, he noticed that his wedding band was missing. He rented a metal detector to find it, but came up empty-handed. He contacted 4 days later and I met him at his house the following morning.

We searched the obvious spot (where Zach shook his hands) and spread out about 10 feet from that spot. Having no luck, we decided to grid search the front, back and side yards but still no ring. As a last resort I asked Zach to rake all the snow away from two metal poles that were in his front yard. While Zach raked, I searched a couple less likely spots and found the ring near the house and about 15 feet away from where Zach shook his hands. Neither of us thought the ring could have flown that far! Next time I get the chance to search for a ring, I will search a little farther out from the most likely spot.

Zach was very happy to have his ring back on his finger.


Closure Search Leads to Success

  • from Cochrane (Alberta, Canada)


Sometimes I get called to search for an item that “might” have been lost somewhere. When I become that last resort, I conduct a closure search, hoping to find the item but knowing that there is a good chance it won’t be found. In cases like this, I usually ask for a flat rate fee.  Recently I was called up about a lost ring in a parking lot. She was pretty sure she had the ring before she arrived and after running a couple of errands at a couple of locations, she realized it was gone. There was no certainty but she asked me to check the locations where she had parked. I did without success. Later I met with her and searched her vehicle using my endoscope (tiny camera). She had searched the car already but I was able to check all the nooks and crannies. Still not found. When I left, I told her that her ring was not in the locations where I had searched. There were two possibilities. Someone may have picked it up (I left notes at the businesses where we searched) or she may have lost it elsewhere.  Two days later, I received a text with a picture of her ring. She had found it behind some bins in a closet.  Turns out that after my search had eliminated what she believed may have happened, she began to rethink the events surrounding the loss and was able to focus her own search elsewhere. This led to the eventual recovery of her ring.  Just another example of how a recovery specialist can help you.

LOST PHONE near Raleigh, NC……. FOUND!!!

  • from Raleigh (North Carolina, United States)

Shawn SGT Sherrill – Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Call/Text ASAP  Anytime 24/7   918-313-2202

I received a call from a gentleman that lost his phone on the side of a road. I met up with him with fellow Ring Finder, Doug Hardy. After getting all the details of the location of about where it was lost we began looking for it in the high brush and thorns.  It was a visual search, there was no way to swing a metal detector. After about 30 mins I was able to locate it under a bush next to some thorn bushes. I had to crawl under them to get to it. We called the owner back and confirmed it was in fact his phone!! The photos/videos on his phone were priceless to him. He had had this phone since the birth of his child and hadn’t backed it up to any cloud. He was beyond grateful to get this phone back with all of the memories, that were irreplaceable.

Sometimes it is just meant to be.

  • from Cochrane (Alberta, Canada)



 A couple of metal detecting buddies of mine called me up and asked if I wanted to join in on a search. While out hunting they were approached by a man whose son had lost a cross pendant with his wife’s ashes in it. I didn’t have my equipment with me but seeing that the site was just off my route home, I stopped to say “Hello” and see how it was going. What happened next was very unexpected.  Watch the video to see the ending.

Lost Wedding Ring Found Just Outside Calgary

  • from Cochrane (Alberta, Canada)

Marco called me about the wedding ring he lost while cleaning up out back. We talked and it became pretty evident that the ring was there. I just needed to pass my metal detector coil above the ring. It wasn’t a question of “If” but instead a question of “How

long?”   Watch the video to see what happens


Silver Necklace recovered in Black River Falls, WI

  • from Eau Claire (Wisconsin, United States)

Amber found me on the Ring Finders website after she lost a silver necklace of sentimental value, given to her by family.  She was helping with a wedding when she noticed the necklace was missing.  She was certain that she lost it while carrying a suitcase across a mowed field.  On a cloudy, misty day we discovered it hiding in the stubble after about an hour of searching.  Made us both smile!
