Lost gold cross necklace at Lake Of The Ozarks Mo.

Deb contacted me wanting to know if I would look for a gold cross necklace. The necklace belonged to her teenage nephew and had fallen through the crack of their boat dock. I explained that I was quite certain that I would find it.
We discussed fee and expenses, then agreed to meet on Sunday. Upon arrival and after setting up the equipment, we lowered a small rope with a rock as a weight to the spot were the necklace went down. Using this method I was able to follow the rope down. The rock was positioned exactly above the necklace. Checking with my divers light yielded no result due to the area having been disturbed by previous attempts at finding the necklace. I then used my Garret pinpointer probe and immediately located the necklace. This only took about five minutes. I love it when a good plan comes to fruition!

Twinkling In My Eyes! Stunning Diamond Pendant Found In Gig Harbor, Washington! Eyeballed!

from Seattle (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-206-651-4779

Tuesday I got a voicemail in regards to a lost white gold and diamond pendant in Gig Harbor… It was in a basket of personal items that was in the back of Jennifer’s SUV, and someone forgot to completely latch it! At some point the basket fell out of the car onto a relatively busy country road and spilled all the contents! Including an extremely valuable and sentimentally significant diamond pendant! They exhausted themselves looking but were only able to find the main, larger items on the side of the road. She suspected the pendant had hit the grassy ditch and a metal detector would be the right tool to locate it.

Since I was busy during the week, I had to postpone the search until the weekend, and was hoping no one had found it in the meantime. We met this Friday afternoon and went over the story, pictures and location where it had occurred. Since it was a busy road, we had to be mindful of cars as we walked to the area. I left the metal detectors behind in my truck, planning to retrieve one as soon as the details were all clear… then I’d begin the hunt!

Imagine our surprise and elation when within 2 minutes of arriving on the scene, I SPOTTED THE DIAMONDS TWINKLING IN THE SUN!!! ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD!!!

NO METAL DETECTOR NEEDED!!! One stone was loose but near the pendant and it appeared to be in great shape other than the loose diamond! Another happy ending to a very stressful few days in this families life. Glad I could help, and just a little sorry it was so easy this time 😉

Dazzling diamonds eyeballed!

Super excited to be so lucky!

Contacted via E-mail for a lost ring at a small private beach. No parking available so a hike was in order from a town beach. The first night showed no sign of a ring. With Google Earth map in hand, Jim and I headed back the second night and expanded the area of our search. A bit of confusion on which Sunday and which “little” jetty and if the jetty could be seen at high tide kept us guessing. No need to make any more guesses; as I was was about to leave the original search area after 5 hours of searching the area the ring said it had had enough and reluctantly crawled into my scoop. YES, the search was over. Return was arranged via the USPS, delivered and waiting photos.

On to the next search and return adventure…

I received a call from a gentleman whose wife had lost her wedding and engagement rings on a beach a few miles from my house. The problem was that I was out of town on vacation and couldn’t help, or could I? I put a call out to a few fellow detectorists who turned out to be unavailable but after checking the directory I found another Ring Finder who was about an hour and half away and recommended a call to him. Long story short, he made the trip down the coast and recovered the rings the next morning. Goes to show,  you should always call a Ring Finder first.

On July 7th i received a message from Edward Cropski aka/ N.J. Lost Ring Finder about a lost wedding band in Sea Bright NJ. Ryan and his wife were relaxing and enjoying the day when at some point Ryan went into the water and while wading/body surfing during high tide, he watched his ring come right off his finger as a wave came in. He reached out to Ed who then sent him my way as i was closer. It was lost on the 6th, I went out there on the 11th for the 2am low tide and based on map images and a video his wife took of where they were at the time i was able to find it in about 2hrs of searching. They were very happy to hear that i had found it when i sent him a picture and could not believe it!. He told me from now on it is not going to the beach with him again! Another happy couple!

After 15 minutes…..my Minelab Excalibur 2 went off and had the ring in my sand scoop. Proceeded quickly back to shore and had to rush off to another water ring recovery a little further north.

20180701 Canada Day lost wedding band at Wasaga Beach, Ontario, Canada

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Received an email through the ring finders late evening on Canada Day that Aneta & Tom had been building sand castles and throwing a little football around the waters of Wasaga Beach. The Wasaga Beaches are 14kms of fresh water beaches 1 through 6.

I met them there after being in the water at Wasaga Beach #1 for approximately 11 hours with the Minelab Excalibur2 and my T-rex sand scoop.

We walked aways to the location of the sand castles area where they were sitting. I widened my grid area and then decided to head into the water. Aneta went back to my truck for my headlamp to make the search easier. My first target about mid calf deep was Tom’s 14k white golf wedding band approximately 30′ from shore!! So as I normally do….I waited till she arrived back, started a video and proceeded back out to retrieve it….that was a quick one. A very happy couple as the wedding band is very sentimental. The couple graciously sent in a donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Found!!

Here’s the late night video…

 

 

 

 

 

LOST WEDDING RING – WASHINGTON, LA – FOUND

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

Tobi called on July 6th, 2 days after losing her platinum and diamond wedding ring. She felt it fly off when throwing a ball to her kids. Luckily, she heard it hit a landscape timber. That really narrowed the search area. Carrie and I jumped in the truck and drove the 40 miles to her house. Within 10 minutes, Sid got a strong 47 reading on his Garrett AT PRO. Right below the surface was the beautiful ring. After reuniting Tobi and her ring, we cooled down while having a nice visit with Tobi and her dad. Loaded up the truck and headed home. Thank you Tobi for your generous reward!

Lost Palladium wedding band in the bay at Tice’s Shoal Island beach state park NJ Recovered by Matt St.Germain & Dennis Burligame

from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-732-581-0285

A few days ago i received a call from a woman named Tina. I was not able to call her back right away so she then called my friend Dennis Burligame who is also a member of the RingFinders.com. They recently married in May. While they were out enjoying themselves with friends at Tice’s Shoal in Island Beach state park in the bay his ring slipped off his finger. Dennis went out there the same afternoon to conduct a search. Tina had him about a 100ft+ in the wrong area it turned out. He was unable to find it. So i met up with Dennis this morning to help him search for it. It was a bit cold out this morning so we donned our wet suits and headed into the water. We started searching the area again. While in the water i took out my cell phone to use the pictures they took to try and get in the right spot and narrow down the search area. After about 3 hrs of digging bottle caps and pull tabs along with the occasional coin i had his ring in my scoop!. Needless to say they were very happy and excited when i called them with the news. They met us about 30mins later to pick it up. Love these happy endings!
