Captiva Island–Ring Lost in Beach Sand Found & Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

A late night search results in another RingFinders success story.

Dan called us after losing his ring in the loose sand at a public beach near his vacation rental on Captiva Island.  My wife and I decided it would be best to come that night rather than the next morning in order to avoid the heavy commuter traffic.

After arriving at the beach and determining the area where the ring most likely was lost, we began our search.  It wasn’t long until my very first signal after turning on my metal detector produced the lost ring!

We are glad we were able to reunite another lost ring with its owner!

Testimonial for Ring Finder’s, for Stan Ross, Newport Beach, CA.

May, 2018

Stan is the man who can find the needle in the haystack!  Absolutely an answer to my prayers.

My wife and I were taking an overnight vacation before picking up our daughter from college at the end of her spring semester. We love the Newport Beach area and after a walk on the beach I had decided to take a quick swim in the surf not far off of the beach. It was a wonderful day with our daughter and her boyfriend until until at dinner time my wife noticed that my wedding ring was missing from my hand. After getting back to the hotel room and doing a thorough and a bit frantic search through the room and even our car I was unable to locate the ring. I was upset and felt foolish for not taking it off prior to my swim as I had other co-workers who had lost their wedding rings the same way.  We assumed that it was a lost cause to find my wedding ring of 26 years of marriage. 

I woke early the next morning still thinking about my ring and praying that there had to be a way to find it. I decided to do a Google search for “lost ring sand Newport Beach”.  The website for Ring Finders came up on the top of the list. After looking through local people I found Stan’s blog and noticed that the vast majority of his finds were in the Newport Beach area with a significant number of great testimonials to his acumen and skill. I contacted him at 5:30 in the morning not sure if he would even answer his phone due to the time of day. However, to my great surprise he did!  After explaining to him where I was swimming due to the location of our hotel, he was fairly confident that given the low morning tides for the day he would be able to find my ring.  By 6:30am he texted me that he was starting his search at the beach in the area I had indicated.  I met him at the beach just before 7 a.m. and his gracious and focused demeanor along with knowledge of the area gave me confidence and hope that my ring could be found..

After about 30 minutes after I got there, he found my ring!  I was so excited and so ecstatic to once again have my unique wedding ring of 26 years of marriage. A hand crafted gold band not of much value but of huge sentimental value. Thank you so much Stan – you made our day!  We now have a story with you in our family history. To all others, I highly recommend Stan and his skills should you have a need.

Lost engagement and wedding rings in yard, St. Augustine, Fl…..Found!

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

Mrs. Connie called me Friday afternoon from St. Augustine with a very special request. Apparently on Wednesday Mrs. Connie had walked down their driveway to check the mail box and as she was walking back to the house she spotted some weeds and palm debris in one of her flower beds. She carefully set her mail and glasses on the edge of the concrete and proceeded to pull the weeds and pick up the debris. Then she said she walked over to the fence and with her left hand she threw the sticks and weeds. And as she swung her arm in a side ways motion, she felt her rings come off of her finger. (Usually when ever Mrs. Connie would do any type of yard work she would leave her rings inside the house but not this time!) Mr. Bill, Mrs. Connie’s husband, had this ring made special for their wedding and the rather large diamond was from his late mother’s wedding ring, so you can imagine the pain they felt in not being able to find the lost rings!
The next day they purchased a small metal detector from a local store and tried their best to locate the rings…but they turned up empty handed. Their search for help led them to theringfinders.com and a member in the St. Augustine area. That member was not able to help them so Mr. Bill clicked on one of my stories and they decided to give me a call—and thankfully they did.
After meeting this very special couple and getting more specific details on how and where the rings were lost, I started my search. Mr. Bill had cut down the thick brush and grass and I was confident the rings were there, but my first pass of the target area turned up zip, zilch, nada! Again I figured I needed to expand the search area and sure enough I got a nice platinum signal, 20 feet from where she tossed the debris. There hidden in the long grass was Mrs. Connie’s lost diamond engagement ring! And then no more than four feet away was her wedding ring, just waiting to be found. What an honor it was to help such a lovely couple and to see the huge smiles on their faces. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help you and thank you for your generous reward! God Bless you both! Mike McInroe—grateful to be a member of theringfinders.com

Ted called me, telling me that his wife, Shima had lost her diamond engagement ring either in the house or outside where she had walked yesterday afternoon.

I asked if I could talk to her to get her description of when she had last seen it and if she had done anything that might have caused the ring to fall off her finger. She had been in the house most of the time doing a few household chores. The walk they took that afternoon was only two blocks then they spent an hour at the neighborhood cocktail lounge. Both Shima and her husband,Ted had searched the outside area that night and the first thing in the morning.

It sounded like there was a possibility that we might have a few places that I could search the grass curb strip and decorated rock landscape ground cover along the sidewalk. After that we could look the house over to see if the ring was hiding inside the house. The main thing was to eliminate the outside areas first, so they could concentrate searching the inside of the house.

Shima and Ted walked with me as I swung my metal detector over possible places the ring could be hiding along the walkway. Nearing the end, I could see Shima start to give up hope. While walking back to the house I double checked the search area. A couple of the people walking along the sidewalk asked us what we were looking for. Then I saw Shima showing one of the gardeners a photo of her ring to one of the workers. She broke out in a joyful smile and yelled, “ They Found it”.

Freddy the guy working on the irrigation system had found the ring earlier that morning lying on the edge of the street near the gutter. He had put it in their truck thinking it was probably a fake ring.

This has happen several other times, where someone sees me detecting and has been honest enough to ask and return the lost item. Swinging a metal detector does create attention and this time it helped to find the person who found the ring. You never know, how it works? One reason I like to say, “I Will Try Anywhere”

Casey had been watching several children at Sorensen Park in Whittier, CA. While sitting on the lawn she took her white gold promise ring putting it on her backpack so she could apply sunscreen. She got distracted when one of the children she was supervising started to wander off. The ring fell off the backpack into to deep grass.

She didn’t realize the ring was missing for about an hour. Her attempts to locate her most special sentimental ring were unsuccessful.

Returning home that evening she told David, her fiancé. He was able to direct her to TheRingFinders website.

Somewhere about 10am she called me telling me she could meet me at the park around noon. It’s not always easy to have people meet you a the location. Timing is important when items are lost in a public place.

Casey was able to get me within a 50ft. square area. I began my grid search and within a half hour I got a nice low tone in my headphones. Kneeling down with my pinpointer I received a surface signal. The ring was not visible until I pushed away some of the clover grass.

She was several feet away pacing back and forth hoping to spot the ring herself, which does happen on these type of searches. Sometimes it’s just a matter of the position of the sun that helps to see a lost ring.

When, I called her over to look at something she had no idea that I had found the ring. It was special for me to see the look on her face when she saw the ring that she felt was lost forever.

This call was referred to me my another member of TheRingFinders, we always try to work with each other to handle these calls in the best possible way. Finding and Returning sentimental keepsakes is our priority.

Shaun lost his platinum wedding ring in the sand at Laguna Beach, CA. He had been on the dry sand when he brushed some sand off and his ring went flying into the sand. After 3 hours of trying to find it he gave up. Returning home he found my contact information online. Shaun called me at 7pm asking me if I could help him the next morning. I told him it was not wise to wait. He agreed to meet me a half hour later and before 8pm I was able to locate his platinum wedding band.

It wasn’t an easy search, because there was several deep metal signals that interfered with my search. We were lucky to pull out the platinum ring signal which read 12-04 on my CTX detector.

Shaun and his wife Elaine were totally surprised and grateful to have their ring back where it belongs. Everybody slept well that night. We were all back home by 9 pm.

 

Tiffany Wedding Ring Set Lost in Sand .. Huntington Beach, CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

Shona lost her Tiffany gold and diamond wedding ring set at Huntington Beach in the sand. She had taken them off, while applying sunscreen. She then put them in the cupholder of her beach chair. A few hours later after carrying her chair and other items to her car, she remembered the rings. The rings were not in the pocket of the beach chair.

Shona went back to the beach where a lifeguard told her to check the internet for TheRingFinders.com. She called me and I met her on the beach a short time after our phone conversation. That’s when I heard the whole story. It could possibly be a time consuming search, as the area she walked back to her car was almost a quarter mile. Now, she was having trouble finding exactly what trash can they sat near.

From experience I felt the rings most likely fell out when she first folded up the beach chair. Shona was going through he contents  the trash cans to identify things she had thrown in them. While waiting for her to give me the exact place she sat, I started a random search. Two 20 ft. passes in the general area, I got a simple signal and when I scooped it up, there were two Tifanny wedding rings in my sand scoop. They were definitely Shona’s rings. The lifeguard happened to be standing near me. I showed him and called Shona over to surprise her so the lifeguard could experience the joy of returning the wedding rings.

This is the second time recently that an impossible search turned out to be really easy. I know from experience these rings would have not have been here the next day. The dry sand next to the Huntington Beach pier gets detected everyday and every morning the dreaded Beach King beach cleaning machines invade the beach, claiming items as small as dimes.

It was a great day, also a pleasure to meet Shona and help find her rings.

If You need a metal detector specialist call a member of TheRingFinders as soon as possible. Texting and Email also works but may take too much time.

 

Platinum Wedding Ring Lost Off Roof .. Long Beach, CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

Craig was doing roofing repairs for a client in Long Beach, CA. when his platinum/ gold wedding band came of his finger. It rolled quickly down the roof just like a wheel. When he came off the roof he couldn’t find it in the 6 foot area between the house and the fence. The other option was the neighbor’s yard which was a heavily covered landscaping that had a lot of plants and dried leaves. After an hour of searching he decided to call for the help of someone with a metal detector. After a google search he found my contact information.

When I talked to Craig on the phone he told me the basic story. He would be to meet me with permission to search the neighbor’s yard. Less than an hour later I met him and he went over the events that led to the loss of his ring. Then we walked into the location directly in front of where he had been working on the roof next door. It was definitely a place where a ring could be hiding. A perfect place to use a metal detector and/ or hand held pinpointer.

As I was adjusting the settings on my metal detector and beginning the swing my detector, Craig yelled, ” there it is”.
The whole planter was covered with dry leaves, but the ring actually landed in the only clear spot, on the edge of the cement patio. It had flown more 20 ft. off the edge of the roof.

This has happened more than a half a dozen times, when the person or someone else spots the lost item while I’m doing a search grid with my detector. What is most important is Craig has his most sentimental wedding ring back where it belongs. It was a pleasure to meet Craig and help him search for his ring.

Surfer Lost Keys in Sand .. Huntington Beach, CA. .. Recovered with Metal Detector

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

While detecting at Huntington City Beach a lifeguard patrol vehicle drove up to me asking if I could help a surfer find his car keys. Most of the lifeguards know me and know I’m a member of TheRingFinders. I’m always willing to use my detector and my experience to help people who need help.
The lifeguard took me to Michael who was frantically digging in the sand where he had buried his keys before going surfing. This is not the first time I have seen this type of loss.

Michael was frustrated because he has done this many times before with no problem. He was beginning to think that somebody had seen him hide the keys and had taken them.

I have learned that key search metal detector settings should be an all metal mode. If not you might get a null instead a good tone. It depends on the materials the keys and the ring is made of.

I swung my detector coil around the inside of a 2 ft. deep hole that Michael had dug. On one side of the hole there was a positive signal. It turned out to be Michael’s car keys. Another happy surfer that didn’t have to have his car towed or pay for a locksmith to replace his keys. Both the lifeguard and Michael know how to get a metal detector expert if they need a ringfinder in the future. There’s a ringfinder directory as near as your celphone or computer.

Two Gold Rings Found Henderson Estate, Edmonton, Alberta Canada

from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-780-497-2118

I received a call from Nada this afternoon requesting my service to find her two rings which were lost while she was doing yard work on Monday,  however it was not until Tuesday that she realized  that her rings where not on her finger. I told her I would be there within one hour.

I met up with Nada at her home where she showed me the area she was working in the back yard.  She had been  pulling plants out of her flower pots and raised garden and was cleaning the back yard for the winter.

After asking Nada a lot of questions I started checking the flower pots and then couple of bags full of leaves with no luck.  I headed to her raised garden plot in the corner of her yard where I found the larger ring. The smaller ring proved much more difficult to find. I searched around the yard for another hour.  Nada was realizing that the ring was probably lost elsewhere but I told her not to give up yet.  She went in the house to warm up.

I continued searching and headed to another raised bed. There I heard a faint sound in my headphones.  The ring was covered in leaves! I called Nada over and told her it was her lucky day as both rings had been found.  She was very happy to have them back on her finger.

Thank you Nada in entrusting me to find your rings.
