BRIAN RUDOLPH, LOST ITEM RECOVERY SPECIALIST (LAND, WATER, SAND, HOUSES & VEHICLES) WILL FIND YOUR LOST KEEPSAKE! CALL ASAP (301) 466-8644!

I received a phone call from a gentleman named Justin who explained to me that he lost his 14 karat yellow gold wedding band while he was playing with his children in the Severn River located in Annapolis, Maryland. The family loves to visit grandma and grandpa who live in the Sherwood Forest community which overlooks the beautiful water. Justin went on to explain that he was picking up his children and throwing them into the water when he believed that he saw his wedding band fly off his finger. The desperate man attempted to dive to the bottom of the river to see if he could claim his most precious keepsake, but unfortunately he couldn’t find the ring anywhere. Justin realized at that point that there was no other possibility of recovering his ring other than contacting a professional metal detectorist who could either search while wading in the water or dive below to recover the band. He looked online and found the elite international metal detecting service directory called THE RING FINDERS. There were two detectorists in his area, so he contacted a fellow out his way and then the other was me, Brian Rudolph.

Once I heard the entire story of what happened to Justin’s ring, I shared with the gentleman that I would be more than happy to help him recover this lost keepsake. He expressed that he wanted to get it back as soon as possible. I thought that was very “chivalrous” of him because he wanted the symbol of his love back on his finger right away! That’s how much he loves his wife! We set up a time for me to come out to the private gated community sometime in the afternoon the following day. I couldn’t wait to get into the water. Justin said that the water was approximately five to six feet in depth when he was playing with his children at the time that the ring got lost in the water. This fellow measured around 6 feet, 2 inches tall, so he didn’t feel uncomfortable in the deeper section off of the private beach along the pier area.

I mentioned to Justin that if the tide brought in a depth of water over 5 feet, 2 inches or more, I would most likely have to return with air supply so that I could dive for the ring. He thought that I would be able to recover the item without having to bring dive gear. We exchanged information and I told him that I couldn’t wait to meet the family and return this very special piece of property to his hand once again.

Early the next morning, I was woken up by a phone call from the other metal detectorist who serves the Annapolis, Maryland area. I didn’t know who the gentleman was because I had never met the other detectorist, but once he explained who he was, he went on to share that he had just come out of the Severn River and was unable to recover Justin’s wedding band. Even for the 6 foot tall detectorist, the water was too deep and his metal detector stopped working when it got flooded by water entering its inner housing compartment. Even though it was a waterproof detector, the Severn River got the best of it. Apparently, the fellow got called out to help prior to my call and he wanted to let me know what I would be up against when I would come out later that day. The guy was shivering and I felt so bad that he endured such conditions trying to help dear old Justin.

After thanking the detectorist for calling me and giving me the update, I called the client and the two of us discussed a new strategy. Instead of me coming out that particular day and experience water that would be too deep for me to wade in the river, I decided that the best thing to do would be to bring out my air supply and dive for the ring. Justin was completely on board and he was willing to wait another week until I had my new trailer hitch attached to the vehicle so I could haul my additional equipment (my other car died six months earlier and I needed a new receiver attached to my latest vehicle). I greatly appreciated his patience as it would take a few extra days to get an appointment at the hitch center.

We had talked on a Monday and we were hoping by Saturday I could get out to the river and conduct the recovery. Unfortunately, I would not be able to have the hitch put on until later that Saturday afternoon, and therefore we would have to postpone the search for another day. Then, weather conditions got rough during the following week and it wasn’t until Friday of that week (11 days after Justin initially called me) that I was able to make the trip to Annapolis, Maryland to conduct the recovery operation.

Finally, the day arrived when I was able to meet up with Justin and his family out by the private community beach and conduct the search for Justin’s missing wedding band. The day was simply picture-perfect! There were only blue and sunny skies and it felt warm and comfortable outside.

I couldn’t wait to get in the water! I arrived at the gated community around 4:15pm on that Friday afternoon. Justin met me outside the gate and I then followed him into Sherwood Forest as he took me to the private beach area where he believed he saw the ring fly off his finger. I will never forget how exclusive I felt as I drove behind Justin’s vehicle and passed the community golf course and country club, along with exquisite homes and beautiful landscaping all about. Eventually everything in front of me opened up to this most magnificent natural painting of God’s gorgeous creation of the vast water of the Severn River with sailboats and other vessels moving across the water as people enjoyed their summer fun! We drove parallel with the river and finally we reached the parking area where the beach was located.

There were plenty of people in the water and enjoying the summer day. It was hot outside and delightful in every regard. I loved seeing all the activity with families and children moving about along the shore. Children were enjoying their play time in the water, as well.

As soon as we both parked, Justin and I officially met one another “face mask to face mask” and then he promptly took me onto the pier, which was perpendicular to the lovely sandy beach. He walked me all the way to the very end of the boards and it was there that he pointed out towards the water where Justin claimed that he saw his ring slip off his finger and head down below. I didn’t waste any time and immediately got into the river and checked out my surroundings. Obviously, the tide was being good to me as I was able to still have my head above water. I realized that my six-foot metal detectorist friend who came out nearly 2 weeks earlier didn’t have such favor. It turned out that I didn’t need to use the air supply after all based on what I discovered regarding the tide flow at that point in the day.

I looked at Justin and I said to him, “What’s the big deal here? Let’s do this!” He smiled and shrugged his shoulders. I told him this was no big deal and I headed back to the car to pull out all of my gear. I couldn’t wait to recover Justin’s cherished wedding band!

Once I got everything I needed out of the vehicle, I transported my Xtreme sand scoop made by fellow Ring Finder directory member, John Volek, along with my metal detector, harness, floating sifter (to dump sand and shells into in order to detect for precious metal), waterproof headphones and my pinpointer. I was ready for business!

As I made my way into the water from the sandy shore, everyone looked on to see what was going to happen. I saw Justin on the pier near to my route in the water and I said to him, “I’ll be back with your ring”. We both smiled and I just knew that I would love every minute of this search!

Once I got to the spot where I needed to start searching, I began my imaginary water grid line as far out as I possibly could, but starting closest to the pier pilings. Slowly and methodically I moved from west to east and then back again towards the pilings. When I reached a distance that I knew was way too far from where Justin could have lost the ring, I moved back in the direction from where I came and continued adding to the gridlines, moving slowly in the direction towards shore. As I slowly metal detected the bottom of the river, one of Justin’s sons swam over to me. I asked the kid what his recollection was regarding where he had been thrown off of his dad’s shoulders and he confirmed that I was searching in the right area.

I continued with my consistent grid pattern, moving the coil underwater back and forth, hoping to pull up a signal that I was all so very familiar with regarding classic men’s 14 karat yellow gold wedding bands like Justin’s! I did find a few random targets, including a BMW key fob. I also found different parts and pieces that came off of boats and other types of equipment which ended up at the bottom of the river. Yet, I still had not found the item that I was commissioned to recover. Each time I pulled up something, I would hold up the artifact high in the air and the large audience of adults and children along the beach were keeping watch of what I was discovering.

It was sometime around the fifteenth minute mark into the search when I hit a similar signal that the metal detector had picked up a few minutes earlier. I was hoping that this particular target would in fact be Justin’s wedding band. The visual display indicator numbers on my screen were coming up in the range of exactly what I was looking for. I knew that Justin’s fingers were quite thick and large, so we were definitely looking for something that had some serious weight to it and plenty of gold to go around. I used the same method to search the bottom as with all of my other targets that I pursued earlier. I pushed my sand scoop down into the sand at the bottom of the river and then brought the scoop to my side so that I could metal detect that particular spot to see if I grabbed the object or not. Unfortunately, I missed the item and repeated the same sequence of actions. Once again, when I moved the scoop of sand and shells off to the side and then waved the metal detector coil back and forth in the area of where I was scooping, I still was getting that same target signal down below. I was determined to find out what this object was and I would not move on until I had my answer.

Once again, I pursued the target and aimed my scoop right in front of me and pushed as far down as I could into the sand and silt. Then, I brought the loaded scoop over to the side to see if I had success in removing the piece of metal from its resting place. To my excitement, when I swung the coil back and forth at the bottom of the river in that spot where I was working, there was no longer any indication that a piece of metal was in that location. Whatever I had detected, it was now in the scoop. I then lifted the sand scoop up above the water and then flipped it to remove the contents onto the floating sifter that was tethered to my detector harness.

It was now time to inspect what was dumped onto the sifter and see if I hit the bull’s-eye. Well, to my overwhelming delight, buried in the middle of all of that sand, shells, silt, and clams, I saw a fantastic sight to behold! I caught a glimpse of a yellow gold ring piercing through the pile. I did it! I successfully found Justin’s handsome yellow gold wedding band! With excitement and elation, I picked up the huge piece of jewelry and held it up in the air and yelled to Justin and all of the others, “I got it! I found the ring!” Everybody along the shore and the kids in the water all began clapping and congratulating me on the recovery of Justin’s ring! I was so glad that I was able to find his band when I did because the tide was moving in quite quickly and I only had just a handful of minutes left before the water would be above my mouth area. I walked from out of the deep area towards the sandy beach holding the ring up high and showing everyone what came from the depths of the Severn River!

Justin was beyond thrilled at this fabulous success story! Everything happened so fast and I couldn’t have been happier that we were able to recover the item without any confusion or complications! Sometimes water searches are not so easy as there are so many factors that play into how the ring gets lost and what people remember at the time of the disappearance. This search and recovery was definitely in the books as a quick and easy recovery! Justin kept thanking me over and over again as he placed that large ring on his finger! He introduced me to his wife, Kelly, and their two boys that were hanging out around me gathered to see what I had pulled from the bottom of the river. Some of the community members yelled over to congratulate me and I in turn thanked everyone for their kindness and support. I was just so happy to get this very sentimental keepsake back to its proper owner!

It was truly a wonderful story on that beautiful summer afternoon! I was so elated that Justin believed in my abilities enough to wait over a week and a half for me to make the hour trip to the Severn River and lift that handsome piece of gold from the depths of the water and return it back to the one who received it many years ago from his beloved bride on their most precious wedding day! Indeed, I certainly love what I do and I love doing it for people like Justin, Kelly and their two boys!

Lost Family Heirloom Earring…Found 3 Days Later in Arnold, Maryland Parking Lot

  • from Washington (District of Columbia, United States)

Katheryne’s Sentimental Family Heirloom Earring Shining Brightly Once Again!

Katheryne’s Smile Tells the Story’s Happy Ending Perfectly as She Holds the Special Earring in Her Hands!

BRIAN RUDOLPH, LOST ITEM RECOVERY SPECIALIST (LAND, WATER, SAND, HOUSES & VEHICLES) WILL FIND YOUR LOST KEEPSAKE! CALL ASAP (301) 466-8644!

I received an email from a young lady named Katheryne who was deeply upset about a lost earring that was extremely sentimental to her, as well as for her mother. She found my information online just by complete coincidence while she was looking to see if anyone had reported finding her lost piece of jewelry. Katheryne read my profile and numerous successful item recovery stories on the highly popular and elite metal detecting service directory’s website called THE RING FINDERS. Since nothing turned up, she thought to give me a shot at finding the earring. Katheryne figured, ‘What was there to lose by trying him out?’

The recent high school graduate shared with me on the phone the background story connected with the priceless possession that disappeared and the theory of how the earring apparently got lost. Over 20 years ago, Katheryne’s aunt who lived in the Phillipines, gave a pair of 14 karat yellow gold hoop earrings to her sister (Katheryne’s mother) just prior to immigrating to the United States when they were very young. Then, sometime recently, the earrings were gifted to Katheryne which simply meant the world to her.

The young lady let her good friend Kim borrow the set of earrings when they went out with their families to celebrate their high school graduation and allowed for their parents to take some memorable posed photos at a few sites. From Katheryne’s house (where they did their hair, makeup and jewelry), the two families boarded her parent’s minivan and headed to their first photo shoot location – a grassy hill with a beautiful golf course in the background.

Once they all arrived at the first site (which was behind an apartment complex), the families got out of the vehicle, walked from the parking lot onto the grass which led between a couple of the public housing buildings and proceeded to take their celebratory memories on camera. Almost immediately afterwards, everyone returned to the van and headed for the next photo location.

Later that evening, after taking the pictures and partying the day away, Kim proceeded to take the earrings off to return them to her friend when they arrived back at Katheryne’s place. That was the moment when she noticed that one of the earrings was missing off of her ear.

Katheryne was disappointed and upset knowing how much this piece of jewelry meant to her and to the family. The house was searched from top to bottom, and so was the minivan that they were all in when they went to the various sites. Subsequently, Katheryne and Kim returned to each place where they traveled earlier, searched the parking lots, the lawns and everywhere else they stopped to celebrate the two graduate’s accomplishments. Sadly, nothing turned up. They weren’t sure where the earring may have gone missing. The only conclusion that Katheryne was able to come to was that the earring was either picked up by someone at that point or it could have ended up at any of the places they were at during the course of their day’s festivities.

Obviously the young lady’s mom was sad that the family heirloom was seemingly gone forever. Nobody really thought that there was a chance of recovering the earring at that point after looking for so long. However, Katheryne was determined to do all that she could to try to recover this priceless keepsake!

At the time of our initial phone call, I was with a client in Annandale, Virginia. After I wrapped things up at that particular location, Katheryne and I covered every detail imaginable so that I could attempt to solve this mystery and help recover the earring for the young lady. I asked her every question in the book until I got a clear picture of what we were dealing with. One such question was: “Do you have access to all of the photos that were taken along the way (from start to finish) so that we could analyze Kim’s ear to see when she was wearing the earring and when it was no longer on her ear?”

Katheryne’s Fantastic Intel Provided to Me!

Katheryne immediately sent me all of the photos that were taken of her friend and ones that were taken together at the various sites. Once I finished analyzing them, I was actually able to determine that Kim lost the earring sometime between the time she was at her friend’s house getting ready and the time that the families were just about to take photos at the first location! The reason that I was able to deduct this was because the first set of photos did not show Kim wearing both earrings at that moment! The photos clearly showed Kim wearing only one earring! Katheryne was so grateful for that bit of information because that greatly helped to isolate the possible locations as to where the earring fell from Kim’s face!

When I concluded my pre-investigative reporting, I felt comfortable that there was a chance (as slight as it might have been), that the earring could be recoverable. It dropped either at Katheryne’s house, on her front lawn, on her street pavement, in the minivan, in the parking lot at the apartment complex where they first stopped, or on the grassy area just prior to when the first set of pictures were taken.

Within a minute of us wrapping up our talk, I was in my car heading 55 miles from Annandale, Virginia all the way to Arnold, Maryland (near Annapolis) to help Katheryne with this very difficult search. Because my young client had just left town with her folks to go on their annual vacation, I did not have Katheryne around to orient me as to where the two families traveled and walked around. However, she did an extraordinary job of acquiring Google maps and diagrammed the exact place where her vehicle was parked at the first photo session site. In addition to that, she provided me with the address to her house where I could metal detect her lawn, as well as search the driveway and street. That wasn’t all! She also set up a conference call with her friend Kim, and we were all able to connect by phone so that we could go through all of the details together just to make sure that Katheryne wasn’t missing any other pertinent details that would help my search efforts.

After driving an hour and 15 minutes, I finally arrived at the first search site located at the apartment complex where the grassy hill overlooked the golf course in the back of the buildings. Before I took any of my gear out, I did a visual search around the parking lot area where the minivan had been parked several days earlier. I was able to identify the exact parking space based on the excellent intel that was provided to me by Katheryne. Unfortunately, I was unable to effectively inspect the targeted parking space and the adjacent ones to the left and right of it, because there were cars parked all along that section. However, from what I could see, there was no earring lying on the pavement. I did find a couple of coins and miscellaneous aluminum items but no jewelry was discovered.

Once the visual search was complete, I returned to the car and retrieved all of the necessary metal detecting equipment that I needed to conduct my search all around the grassy areas. I started my grid lines closest to the sidewalk which was parallel with the parking lot. I made sure that all of the real estate between the two apartment buildings was carefully searched and nothing of importance was discovered on the surface of the ground. I had tons of signals, but nothing significant enough to lead me to believe that I was hitting the lost hoop earring. Once I finished that center section that led to the backyard where the hill was located, I checked the map and photos that Katheryne sent me and I got a bearing on exactly where the families walked next. Everything matched up perfectly, which allowed me to accurately detect the ground where the young ladies walked and stood just prior to the first photo shoot.

Not only did I grid search that entire section where the families walked around and positioned themselves for the photos, but I covered the entire hill and down towards the bottom of the decline. Katheryne remembered that the two girls walked just a bit down the hill, but not far from where the photographs were taken. I wanted to make sure that there was no possibility that I missed even a foot of grassy area. By the time I completed that large area which leveled out at the bottom of the hill where the golf course fence could be seen, it was completely dark outside and I had expended three hours of search time at that point. I was 100% confident that the earring was not on the lawn anywhere between the two apartment buildings, as well as all of the ground area stretching to the back yard area that I had just finished searching. I resolved that my next step was to drive over to Katheryne’s house and metal detect her front lawn which Kim had walked across leading to the street where the minivan was parked.

Katheryne’s Keepsake Earring Still Lying Right Where it Was Several Days Earlier!

During the entire grid search, I gave updates to Katheryne and occasionally I called her to ask a question or two just to make sure that I covered every square inch of that grassy area. Once I gave my client the discouraging news report (which was that I finished searching the apartment complex property lawn and came up empty handed), I headed for the parking lot to load my gear up and then drive to Katheryne’s place. Just as I got to the foot of the parking lot pavement, I purposely decided to walk between two cars that were situated exactly where the minivan had been parked several days prior. I figured that I would look down at the pavement with my high lumen headlamp as I walked to my car, keeping my eyes focused down below just in case I had missed spotting the earring earlier when other cars were parked in those same spaces. I didn’t think much about it other than processing a quick thought that anything was possible (from personal past experiences), and that just maybe…yes, just maybe a miracle might take place. Well, to my greatest amazement, as my eyes were focused down on the black top, I locked in on a small yellow, gold colored circular object that appeared to be a piece of jewelry lying underneath the vehicle that was parked in the same space where the minivan had been parked three days prior. It was maybe resting 6 inches inside of the parking space’s white line under the car. My initial thought was that this particular find had to be too good to be true! Yet, I remained hopeful as I knelt down on the blacktop to carefully inspect what I had detected with my eyes. As I picked up the object, immediately I noticed that the item was in fact a 14 karat yellow gold hoop earring with the clasp still open! Yes, believe or not, I had found the lost family heirloom earring that belonged to Katheryne! I could not believe it myself! I actually found the earring and it had been on the parking lot pavement all that time! Nobody had discovered it throughout these past few days! None of the residents that came out to their cars or those driving into the space or adjacent spaces identified the earring, as well! Nor did Katheryne and the two families spot the priceless piece of jewelry when they returned to photo shoot location #1 looking for the missing item! It is stories like this one that perfectly illustrates why it’s so important to call a professional item recovery specialist from THE RING FINDER’S directory! We are not “your father’s metal detectorist”! Not at all! We are much better than that! We look outside the box and obsess over searching every possible place where we might find that which has been lost by our clients!

The moment that I discovered Katheryne’s lost earring, I made a call to her girlfriend Kim and let her know the amazing news! She was beyond excited at what I recovered out there in the parking lot! I told her that I wanted to surprise Katheryne with my discovery and yet I knew that we could not wait for her to return from her two week vacation. Therefore, we decided that I would drive over to Kim’s place and she would call Katheryne on her phone so we could get a video chat going. That’s when I would break the news of this marvelous recovery with Katheryne! I don’t recall if we were able to make the video conference call work successfully or not, but we definitely connected with her audibly. Katheryne could not believe what she heard when I surprised her with the good news! She was totally taken back when she learned that I had successfully recovered the 14 karat gold earring which had meant so much to her and her family! Kim also felt a huge sigh of relief because she felt so bad that the earring fell out of her ear during their time of celebration. It meant so much to me to hear both of them express their extreme gratitude regarding what I was able to accomplish for them!

I left Kim’s driveway with such a wonderful feeling inside, knowing that I immediately responded to Katheryne’s request for help and that I successfully deducted the sequence of events as to where I should begin the search. As a result, I found what Katheryne and Kim were so desperately looking for! I love what I do and I really enjoy the people that I do these searches for! Moments like these truly never get old! During the entire 60 mile drive home, I wore the happiest smile upon my face! And truly…and that countenance has not diminished a bit in the least each and every time I recall this most fantastic story!

 

Katheryne’s Testimonial:

 

“Brian, thank you so much for all of your help! My mother was extremely happy when I told her this morning that you found the earring, and I am so relieved that it is safe! Thank you so much, I truly appreciate your service! Thank you so much for the safe return of a family heirloom! When it was discovered that I had lost my mother’s gold hoop earring during graduation pictures, I was, needless to say, quite panicked. I knew that searching all of the grassy sites would be pointless, and was beginning to lose hope. I felt extraordinarily guilty when she told me that it was a precious gift from her sister in her youth. Sentimentally, those earrings were priceless to her. I knew I had to get it back, but didn’t know how. I mulled over my options, but none seemed plausible. Searching on foot proved fruitless. But then I found you – “The Ring Returner” after reading about you on the THE RING FINDER’S website! You were very proactive and had excellent timing. You went to the search for the earring the day I called you! You were meticulous and detailed in your search, as well as being extremely thorough and communicative and eventually…you found it! My mother was extremely joyful at its return, and now all is well…thanks to you! I am extremely grateful for someone who does an act so kind for complete strangers, and one can be sure to trust Brian for the safe return of their valuables. Thank you Brian so much!”
