John was from out of state, working to restore services to the Lake Charles area after the destruction of hurricane Laura. He was sweeping dried mud out of his truck seat when his white gold wedding band flew off his finger. He heard it hit some hurricane debris and before heading to parts unknown in the road ditch. He and a couple of fellow workers moved some of the trash and hand searched the area, No luck. He called Carrie and I the next day for help. Within 2 hours we were on site hunting. Since John had left his own metal detector back home, I lent him mine. After hunting for a few minutes he needed to head back to work and I started hunting. Within an hour, Carrie got a good signal in a thick clump of grass. Neither of us could see the source , so I had to cut and pull some blades of grass from the clump. We both got a visual at the same time. We messaged a picture of the ring to John and soon saw him drive up. Two people had checked that same clump the day before and had not seen the ring. Lots of smiles followed.

Thanks, John, for that generous reward.

Rob was cleaning out his gutters and slung his ring off into the back yard. He purchased a metal detector and tried to find the ring, without success. Locating TheRingFinders on line, he called us for help. We set up to hunt the next day. Carrie and I had a 20’ x 20’ area to hunt. Easy-peasy. Ten minutes and we reunited Rob with his wedding band. Thank you Rob for the generous reward. 

 

Australian Opal Earring Houma, LA – Found

Opal Earrings

Carrie and I received a call from Jan telling us she had lost an Australian Opal earring her husband had given to her on their first Christmas together, 34 years ago. Her daughter was to wear them for her upcoming wedding. Wedding pictures were taken at a plantation home in Houma, LA where the wedding is to take place. The bride removed the earrings and Jan placed them in her ears. She then left that location and went to 3 other locations before noticing one of them missing. They searched all possible locations during the week before contacting us.

Carrie and I arrived at the plantation home in a light drizzle to begin our  search. The ground was soaked from recent heavy rains.  Jan estimated her movements after placing the earrings in her ears. After flagging the search area, Carrie adjusted her Garrett ACE  350’s sensitivity and discrimination with the other earring, placing the item in a ziplock and varying the item’s position (post up, post sideways). Made the first sweep slowly with both of us pin pointing every hit. Halfway through the second pass we were both checking out separate hits 1 foot apart when Carrie found the missing earring under the short grass. Our search time was two hours.

It was such a pleasure to meet Jan and to see the beautiful smile on her face when she saw the earring!  Thank you Jan for the generous reward.
