Lost Man’s Titanium Wedding Ring in Columbus, OH. “FOUND”

from Newark (Ohio, United States)
Contact: 1-740-334-7293

I received a call about a lost Man’s Titanium Wedding Ring in a sand volleyball court. While he was playing the next thing he knew was the ring went flying and disappeared into the sand. He friends helped him search and search for the ring with no luck. Once I started searching I received my first hit. I took my sand scoop to move the sand around and starting sifting through it. Then I heard a ting from the sand scoop and there was the ring. He was very happy to have the ring returned to him.

Lost Gold Pendant…Found Clive, Iowa

from Iowa City (Iowa, United States)
Contact: 1-319-430-3606

I received a call about a lost gold pendant that had been lost from a chain around a child’s neck while playing on a trampoline. The father explained that it was a small golden pendant about the size of half of a penny. Wow that stressed me, it sounded so small, then he told me that he purchased a cheap detector and there were signals all over the place and they had searched for hours with no luck. Now I’m  thinking this will be a near impossible recovery.

So I arrived at the location today at 12:30 p.m. and it was at a friends house. So the friend took me out and showed me the location that they thought it was lost at. As he was showing me where they thought it might be lost at he looked down and said what is that, reaching down he picked up something that looked like gold foil and it was the pendant!

I don’t care who finds the lost object as long as it’s found. I did run my CTX3030 over it and it rang up at 12-05 loud and clear.

Ring found at Ocean Beach

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Richard called me to say that he accidentally lost his wife Simone’s gold ring in the sand at Ocean Beach,  She had given him the ring so that she wouldn’t go into the ocean with it and lose it! Richard had it on his pinky when the unthinkable happened and it ended up in the dry sand. Never fear, The Ring Finders are here! I grabbed my gear, asked the wife to come along in case there wasn’t any parking, and headed out the door. Turns out there was plenty of parking, so, my wife and I went over and met Richard and Simone. We got the story and the approximate search area where I went to work. Not 30 seconds later, I get a nice solid 9 on my Equinox 800. Poked my TRX pin pointer into the sand and chased a signal for a few seconds until I cornered it and pulled a pretty little gold ring back into the sunlight. A relieved Richard and a happy Simone were now able to enjoy the rest of the day. A pleasure to meet you and thank you for the reward.

Ring lost at Ski Beach Found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Joe was enjoying his visit to Ski Beach on Mission Bay, at least until he lost his platinum wedding ring. He had gone down the the water’s edge to rinse his hands. when he returned back to the fire ring area where they were camped, he shook his hands to remove the water, when his ring flew off. He and others tried in vain to find the ring in the dry sand, but, no luck doing that. I met Joe there the next morning and after a few bottle caps that were reading 13-15, I got an 11 reading on my Equinox that proved to be his ring. A happy Joe is now able to get that ring resized and continue it’s story. Nice to meet you Joe and thank you for the reward.

LOST WEDDING RING AT ISLAND BEACH STATE PARK RECOVERED BY MATT ST.GERMAIN AKA JERSEY SHORE LOST RING FINDER

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

Last night around 12am while on my way out to a beach with my friend Dennis, I received a message from Fellow Ring Finder Edward Cropski aka N.J. Lost Ring Finder with contact information for Raj, Who also messaged me minutes later. He was at Island Beach State Park earlier that day with his family. While he was wiping the sand off a boogie board his wedding ring flew off his finger. After searching by hand for a few hours he decided to do a web search where he found the Ringfinders website. I went home and slept for a few hours then met him at the beach at 7:30am. During the summer months detecting is not allowed there on the weekends and you also need a permit (Which i have). He was granted permission for me to come and do a search. He and his wife showed me where they were the day before. Within 15 minutes i was able to recover his ring!. Another wonderful ending! #Minelabfind

Rings lost at Mission Beach Found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Esther called me and asked for help finding her future sister-in-law Gerry’s engagement ring. Reason #2 again! Yup, ring put into beach chair pocket, chair folded up later when they left, and no ring by the time they got to the car. I get the particulars and find out it’s been two days since the loss. That’s an eternity on the blanket line at a popular beach, but, always worth a try. I met Esther at the beach and she directs me to the search area. Since she wasn’t with them when this all happened, I could only get a general idea of where it might be. Esther’s Brother-in-law and future husband of Gerry was on his way to help narrow the search area since he was there at the time of loss. I searched a bit in the mean time, but, only came up with a few coins. That was a good sign however, telling me that it was unlikely anyone else had detected that area lately. The beach groomer hadn’t been through there either, another thing in our favor. Hollis arrived and pointed out the area he believed they had been, and Oh, there were actually 5 rings that were lost! 1 white gold, and 4 silver, so, I’ll be digging just about all signals.

Naturally, there were other people camped right in that spot today! I started searching an open spot next to it while Esther and Hollis went to get permission to hunt under the people’s tent and around their camp. The people were nice enough to allow that, but, no ring came to light. I went back and continued to grid the open area while they tried to figure out where the next likely spot would be. After many passes and getting about 100 feet away from where the rings should be, I was just about to stop and move to search their path back to the car, and the trash cans where they stopped on the way, when I get another good “dime” signal. I scoop and sweep over the hole. Still a signal, so, I dump the sand and take another scoop. Hmmm, two rings in the scoop that look like the silver rings described by Hollis as being the other rings Gerry had lost. I called him over and he confirmed that those were two of them. I swept the hole again, but, nothing. Swept the sand I dumped out on my first scoop, and I get another signal. Yup silver ring number 3. Another sweep and silver #4. To heck with silver! Where’s the gold! Next scoop is where! A beautiful engagement ring comes to light. My first 5 ring recovery! Hollis and Esther are amazed and very happy to see those rings again, and Gerry was too when she was contacted with the good news. A pleasure to meet you, good luck on your future marriage Hollis and Gerry, and thank you for the reward.

Ring lost at La Jolla shores Found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Alec and Liz were visiting here in San Diego and spent the day at the beach in La Jolla. Liz removed her special family heirloom gold ring that she got from her grandmother, and put it in her purse for safekeeping. Well, it must not be too good a place to stay safe as after they packed up and left the beach, they discovered it was not still in the purse. The good news was that it should be in the dry sand. The bad news was that I didn’t get contacted until a couple of days had passed, and the beach grooming machine had already gone through the area. Another possible minus was that it could be in a HUGE area. Not only where they were camped, but almost a half mile of beach they walked to get back to their car. Though I wouldn’t have given good odds on this recovery, I was more than willing to give it a go. Going by a few Google maps, I started at the parking lot at 8pm and walked the 1/2 mile to where they were camped, detecting along the supposed route. Nothing on the first pass. I get to the most likely spot where they had been for most of the day and started my grid. After many passes, I realized it was 9:30pm and that the parking lot would close at 10. I make another pass back to the parking lot without success, get my truck out of the lot, and drive north up to where I left off gridding. After another half hour or so, I get the signal I was hoping for. A good healthy scoop later and her precious ring was in my hand. A few days later, they made the trip back to San Diego and were reunited with the wayward circle. Now grandma’s ring story can continue! A pleasure to meet you both, and thank you for the generous reward.

Lost rings at Pacific Beach Found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Fie was visiting here in San Diego and went to the beach with her son. She decided to put some sun screen on her son and removed her wedding, engagement, and anniversary rings and put them in her jeans pocket. She and her son went and played in the sand and water (where she got knocked over a few times) and at the end of the day, she realized her jean pockets were empty! Panic sets in at that point trying to figure out what to do. Fie’s cousin starts a Google search and up pops TheRingFinders.com website and my contact info. Since she had just lost them only 2-3 hours before she contacted me, I wanted to get on site as soon as possible, even though it was going to be high tide soon. Being a Friday night, hot, humid, and summer time, I knew it would be crowded and hard to find parking. No matter, I wanted to get there before someone else found the rings and made off with them. I met them shortly after sunset and headed to the area they had been that afternoon. Even though there were still a few people on the beach, I was able to search almost all of the suspect area. No rings…shoot. Well, the tide was just starting to head out, but, not enough yet to do a water search. I told them I would return early in the morning and sweep the area at low tide. Not knowing exactly when and where the rings came out made it a HUGE search area, probably 3-4 football fields in size was a possibility. I returned at 2am and started just south of the most likely area and planned on gridding my way north all the way to the pier if necessary. She had only gone knee deep, but, it’s a pretty shallow beach in that area so tons of wet sand to cover. After about an hour and a half, I hit my best sound of the night. One big scoop and I had a beautiful engagement ring in my hand. Even covered in sand and with only my headlamp to see it, I was pretty sure it was one of her rings. Now, where are the others? I looped around this one a couple of times, but, nothing. Hmm. Ok, I continued on with my grid and about 8 feet away, I get another great signal. Sure enough, another matching ring comes to light. Alright, just one more! Circled around that area a bit and again, nothing. Dang, continue with the grid again. Another 8 feet toward shore and I get the third one. All of them were in a straight line from about a 160 feet out from the dry sand. This was a 3’s wild kind of night. Her’s was the 3rd set of 3 rings I’ve recovered and it started at 3:33am! I looked at my watch after finding the first ring. Kinda weird, but, in a nice way! When I got home, I texted Fie and told her that I would contact her later in the day after I got some sleep. We made arrangements to meet that afternoon. She and some of her wonderful family came and had a joyous reunion with her rings. It was a pleasure to meet you all and thank you for the generous reward!
