Lost Friendship Ring in Rosenburg, Texas
I was contacted by Donavin a resident of Rosenburg, Texas who was looking for someone to help him find a very important friendship ring,
Donavin reported he had been playing baseball in his backyard when he had the mis-fortune of losing a silver friendship ring.
Donavin said he had been playing baseball another ring flew off of hos right hand…Donavin said he search for hours and was not able to find that lost ring. Donavan said it was at the point he took of his friendship ring, tied a piece of fishing line to it, and threw it to see how far his other right might have flown.
Donavin said immediately after throwing the promise ring the fishing line broke…and he was now faced with trying to find two lost rings in his backyard.
Donavin said he spent a number of hours searching for the lost ring and successfully found the first ring, but his friendship ring was still buried somewhere in the year.

I set out the following day to help Donavin find his Lost Friendship Ring…

Wedding Ring – Goes Airborne in The Heights – Houston, Texas by John Volek
Wedding Ring Accidentally tossed into the ruff while doing a little after dinner house cleaning…

I was contacted by Randy from the Height i n Houston regarding his wives lost wedding ring…Randy reported following an evening meal with his wife, he had rolled up the table cloth full of crumbs, and later took it outside to shake off the crumbs. Randy said, he was unaware that his wife had taken off her ring and had set it down on the table during that meal.

Randy said he and wife back tracked there steps and realized that the ring must have been carried outside in the table cloth and shaken out with food crumbs. Randy said, he began an intensive search in the ground cover of the rear patio of his home. Randy reported, he had shaken out the table cloth quite vigorously and believed the ring flew into the ground cover.

Randy set out by grid searching the area, but soon realized the task was daunting…the ground cover was thick and deep.

Randy reported, he did a little internet search and came across my name while searching “lost ring Houston”

Arrangements were made to meet with Randy the following day…you can see from Randy’s Smile it was a good day!

Finding Lost Texas A&M Class Rings in College Station, Texas
Texas A&M Class Ring Lost in Creek during classroom exercise in College Station,Texas (found) by John Volek

I was contacted by Ryan from College Station, Texas regarding his lost Texas A&M Class ring…Ryan stated while out on a fishery conservation class he had the misfortune of loosing his class ring. Ryan said, he and classmates were capturing some fish in the creek as part of the classroom assignment, and during that process he lost in ring somewhere in the creek.

Ryan indicate he believed the water depths of the creek ranged from a few feet to possibly eight foot deep in the center of the creek. I made arrangements with Ryan to meet him the following week to search for his lost ring.

Knowing the depths and terrain, I felt pretty confident the ring could be recovered with the right personnel, gear and equipment…I contacted my dive partner Carl…we looked over the details of the recovery and set out the following week to recovery Ryan’s ring.

Once on site, Carl drew the short straw and had to gear up for the underwater side of this search…I would be taking the shallower waters around the deeper portion of the creek.

Once Carl was set-up and underway, I began searching the edges of the creek…I pulled up a few possible signals (fishing lures, and a few bottle caps) before hitting a very distinct signal in about 4 1/2 foot of water…I pulled up a scoop full of rocks and other debris, along with a nice Gold Texas A&M Class ring.

I feel pretty confident Ryan and his father were shocked on how fast we were able to recover the ring!

Check out the video to see the search conditions, no clear blue water here!

Lost Texas A&M Class Ring Galveston, Texas (Recovered)

from Sugar Land (Texas, United States)
Contact: 1-281-330-7758

Lost Texas A&M Class Ring in Isla Del Sol boat channel Galveston, Texas (Recovered)

I received a call yesterday from Alfonso regarding his lost Texas A&M class ring. Alfonso said he was visiting some friends in the Isla Del Sol area of Galveston Island when he lost his ring. Alfonso said he hand his friends had been throwing spent crawfish shells into the boat channel behind his friends home.

Alfonso said he did not see the ring come of his hand, but knew he had it on, because his ring had been an item of discussion during the crawfish dinner. Alfonso said after cleaning up and throwing the shells into the channel he realized his class ring was missing.

After speaking with Alfonso he sent me a few photographs of the channel and bulk head behind the house. We made agreements to met today and search for his missing ring.

Alfonso was specific on the location where he believed the ring would have landed in the water, but after nearly an hour with no results we expanded the search area. After resetting out grid another 10 feet, the ring was recovered within a relatively short time.

I had set up one of my GoPro’s to record the recovery while I was in the water, but unfortunately the recovery took several hours and the camera couldn’t hang.

As with most of the boat channel’s in the Galveston area, there is a large amount of debris, some or most related to hurricane IKE which covered island with more than 10 foot of water.

The visibility was minimal (ZERO) and all targets were sifted blindly by hand, but make no mistake, when you grab a ring, you know it.

I received the following email from Mark this morning regarding his lost Wedding Ring.

 

Hi John,

My tungsten-carbide wedding band slipped off this morning in some short grass. I know the 5×5′ area it’s in, but after 10 minutes of searching I had to give up. I would like to know if you could come try your skills at finding it.

The location is at the corner of Chimney Rock and South Braeswood. If you can help, let me know your availability and we can work out a schedule.

thanks,

Mark

Mark and I met in Houston this afternoon and searched for his missing ring. The search  area was a grass field adjacent to a roadway where he exits the running track. The recovery took less than 10 minutes. Marks ability to put us in the right spot was the main factor in the fast recovery. Nice work Mark.

Post Tension Foundation Cable Locating Sugar Land, Texas

from Sugar Land (Texas, United States)
Contact: 1-281-330-7758

02/18/2015

I was contacted this morning by Cordell regarding assistance in locating the post tension cables in a concrete foundation. Cordell advised his daughters home was under renovation, and he was needing to confirm the location and existence of the post tension cables in the foundation.

I met with Cordell an hour later and observed the renovations of his daughters home in progress. Cordell said the foundation was being fixed-leveled and his was wanting to confirm the location of the existing post tension cables.

Once the first horizontal cable was located, pin-pointing the remaining horizontal and vertical cables at five foot intervals was quite easy.

A handheld TRX pin-pointer performed this function with ease.

Lost Ear-Ring Texas City, Texas (Recovered)

from Sugar Land (Texas, United States)
Contact: 1-281-330-7758

12-09-2014

I was contacted by Tony regarding his daughters lost 1/2 kt. diamond earring. Tony said the diamond earring had belonged to his wives grandmother and finding the missing one was imperative.

Tony said his family had been at his fathers house (Tony Jr.) in Texas City playing volleyball in his backyard. Aviana had gotten to close to the net, and the net pulled the earring from her ear. Tony said, Aviana stopped immediately after feeling the earring being pulled from her ear. Tony said the entire family searched for the earring in the grass, but they were unsuccessful.

Arrangement were made to meet (Tony Jr.-Dad) at his residence on Saturday afternoon to search for the lost earring.

12-13-2014

Arrived Saturday afternoon and met (Tony Jr.) at his residence in Texas City. Tony gave me a walk through of where they believed the earring had fallen after being pulled from Aviana’s ear. I noticed several fresh dug plugs (holes) in the ground. Tony said his son had borrowed a metal detector from a neighbor in an effort to find the earring.

Prior to the good news, Aviana and her mother Courtney arrived and were able to witness the recovery of the lost earring.

I received the following e-mail:
Hi John,
My name is Alex and I need help finding my wedding band. I was playing volleyball in the park next to a friends apartment complex. We were playing in a sand field and I felt it slip off my finger.  We spent 3 hours searching for it with no luck. Would you be available tomorrow (Sunday) to help me find it. I am really distressed about losing it and it would bring me great joy and relief to find it as soon as possible. The place is near the galleria area in Houston.Please call me at 650 ***-****Thank you,
Alex

11/02/2014

I met Alex in the parking lot of the volleyball court today in the Galleria area of Houston. As I was gathering my equipment, Alex explained how he had spent three hours last night searching with no success. He said he gone to a nearby Home Depot and purchased a rack, a shovel, and a heavy duty screen to sift sand and he still couldn’t find his ring.

Alex said, later that evening his wife found my add on Craigslist, and followed my posted link to “The Ring Finders”

The search for Alex’s ring was quick, on my second pass I hit a really nice signal, and moments later Alex was holding his ring. Alex immediately called his wife to share the good news; it was very evident he was very happy to have his ring back.

Lost Wedding Ring Lake Lewisville, Texas

 

October 2014

Received the following e-mail:

Subject: Wedding band lost in Lake
Hello,
I came across your website and was wondering if you could find my lost wedding band.  I see you are in Houston.  I live in the DFW area and lost my wedding band this weekend in Lake Lewisville.  I have the exact location.  It would require you to dive about 20-25 feet with scuba gear.  I only had it for two months and I am willing to pay you for your services.  Please let me know.
Thanks.
Richard

I contacted Don Wilson from The Ring Finders in Dallas and relayed the call information to him, and my interests in attempting a recovery. Lake Lewisville is in Don’s backyard and I knew he would know all the logistical aspects of the search location.

Don did all the ground work on this job, taking photographs of the search location, meeting with Richard at dock weeks prior, and making all the arrangement with the marina for our visit. Having the Dallas team present (Don and Ellen) and their son Tripp was the only reason this recovery attempt was even possible.

Don, Ellen, and Tripp thank you again for everything…

The dock in Lake Lewisville  (the search location)

The depth 23″ feet, and after the 12′ mark total blackness down to the bottom at 23′, the bottom a soft silt mud. Utilized a custom made PVC dive pole to mark the primary search location from the surface. Used a boogie board leash as a lanyard attachment to the PVC pole ensuring I would not drift off of the search location (essentially cave diving in total darkness). The dangers in these black water dives is becoming entangled in or under one of the boat lifts or dock while ascending back to the surface.

You can see from the photograph above, overhead obstacles where a significant obstruction, basically you had to work your way under the lift to descend to the mark.

Now for the downside, after one hour and ten minutes of bottom time, I could not find that missing RING. The bottom of the boat slip at 23′ provided its own challenges, laden heavy with scrap material from the docks construction, and other large miscellaneous metal items made the search a real challenge.

The two lawn chairs above were fastened together with a cable lock and were an unexpected find at the bottom. I worked the bottom with a handheld Vibra-Tech 730 sifting through 4-5 inches of mud pulling up targets.

Large pieces of iron, cut pad locks, small nails and bottle tops were among the assortment of recovered items.
