Lost Wedding Ring Found in A Maine Lake With A Metal Detector

  • from Old Orchard Beach (Maine, United States)

On Saturday July 8th, I received a call from Amy. Her husband, Johnny, had lost his wedding ring, in the water, at their lake house, in Raymond, Maine, the previous day. After searching the shallow water with sifters and rakes on Friday and Saturday morning without finding the ring, they decided to do an online search for help. They found me on The Ring Finders site and Amy made the call. They were located on Panther Pond, in Raymond, Maine. I knew the area fairly well as they were very close to Sebago Lake, which I have previously been to. I immediately got my equipment together and loaded in my vehicle and made the 45-50 minutes drive to their lake house.
Johnny immediately met my wife and I as we drove up to the house. Jonny explained that he just got married 5 months ago and was very upset with losing the ring in the water. He had been roasting marshmallows over a fire and had gone into the lake to wash his hands. After washing his hands, he shook his hands to dry them off and the ring flew off into the lake. Johnny showed me the area he was in when the ring flew off. I started my slow sweeps along the sand bottom of the lake, with the Minelab CTX-3030, and in less than two minutes I received a nice low tone signal, reading 12-20 on the VDI screen. I got the pinpointer out and located the target. A couple of scoops of sand with my hand and I saw a bright and shiny gold wedding ring. I picked the ring up and showed Johnny, Amy and extended family and friends that were watching and received a big round of applause that made me feel just great. To see the relief and smiles on Johnny and Amy’s faces makes me feel so proud and lucky to be able to help people in their time of need. What a great hobby. Here is wishing Amy and Johnny many many happy years of marriage.

Wedding band lost while swimming, recovered from lake in Maine

  • from Rockport (Maine, United States)
  •  Amy emailed me to see if I could help locate her husband Matt’s custom made white gold wedding band, which was lost as he swam in front of their Hopkins Pond Camp, in Clifton, Maine. Despite very clear water and minimal bottom silt, the search area was challenging due to being strewn with rocks and boulders. Upon exhausting my first tank of air, I began to fear the ring may have slipped into one of the many deep crevices and out of detector range. Shortly after starting my second dive, my Minelab Equinox 600 located the ring in 9 feet of water, buried in a thin layer of silt. A portion of the generous reward received will be donated to The Landing Place in Rockland, Maine to help their efforts to combat homelessness of local teens and young adults.

Two lost gold rings found on Maine beach

  • from Rockport (Maine, United States)

I received a call from a man named Matt whose wife had lost two rings including her wedding ring on the beach at Reid State Park in Maine. The couple was on a multi stop camping vacation and were continueing on, planning to email directions to the area where the rings were lost after they arrived at the next site.  Unfortunately cell service was nil at there new location and by using the camp grounds land line I received voice mail directions. A+++ to Matt for his treasure mapping because X pretty much marked the spot. Utilizing his landmarks and height of tide references, about 10 minutes of sweeping and the rings were recovered about 7 inches deep. I caught up to them at their next stop not far from my house to return the rings; talk  about some happy campers. To stay on the camping theme a portion of their generous reward will be donated to Hurricane Island Outward Bound to be used towards scholarships for their world class outdoor programs.
