Lost Ring in Carol Stream, Illinois.

  • from Chicago (Illinois, United States)
Failure was not an option!
Over the years doing so many recoveries, I have heard so many stories, and once in a while one story stands out and tugs at you a little more, this is one of those stories.
I received a call from a woman in Carol Stream back in January.
She told me her husband had just passed away a few weeks earlier and he lost his gold wedding ring about 3 to 5 years ago in the garden.
She wanted desperately to get it back.
Problem I had was the ground was frozen and being lost for such a long time I was expecting it be be at lease a couple inches down.
I told her I would come back as soon as the ground is not frozen anymore and today was that day.
I searched 2 areas in front of the house she told me he was working at when he lost it with no success, but this is a search I could not give up on so I decided to go into the back yard, I was taken back at the size of the yard and thought for sure I would be there most of the day, double lot and at lease 200ft deep so I started thinking like a man, what would I have done?
I saw a picnic table in the yard, I could easily see him possibly taking off his gloves and taking a break at the table, something I’m sure I would have done. A couple minutes later I hit it at the edge of the table, can’t even begin to tell you the feeling I got when I saw it. The entire search took about an hour and to say she was ecstatic is putting it mildly, she held that ring so tight and kissed it over and over, so very touching.
A very HAPPY ending!!!

Gold graduation gift found in football fiend in Downers Grove, Il

Got a call last night, a Med Student lost a graduation gift from his grandmother.
Gift was give to him 20 years ago and his grandmother passed away a few weeks ago so this search had a lot of meaning.
He lost it while playing football on the campus field in Downers grove, Il.
My long range locator got me within 10 feet of the target and the Minelab Equinox did the rest.
He was one happy camper and the satisfaction of hitting it for him can’t be described.

Diamond engagement ring found in House in Glenview, Illinois

  • from Chicago (Illinois, United States)
I normally don’t like doing house or apartment searches, guess it’s just because of my hangup having to go through strangers personally stuff.
However after hearing her story it was pretty hard to say no.
Got engaged in January and future husband out of state and she did not have the heart to tell him she lost her ring a,
$15,000 diamond engagement ring , not insured.
Searched for a couple hours and was getting close to calling it when I tried one last thing, took off her pillow shams and found it there.
She cried all during the search and the picture tells the story when it was found.
No better feeling!!!

Wedding ring found in Lincoln Park area Chicago

Husband and Wife had a little disagreement Wife let the ring sail in the wind.

Wife gave me a call after finding me on Ringfinders.

This was a tough one as the ring was pretty small and found up against a sprinkler box which my detector could not get close enough to it,  so actually found it after about an hour with a pinpointer.

Now that the ring is back hoping they are too.

Lost Diamond Platinum engagement ring found in Norridge, Il

  • from Chicago (Illinois, United States)

Got a call this morning telling me a engagement ring given 50yrs ago was lost in a yard, but it was lost in June. This was a concern knowing now it would not be a surface find anymore but have to give it a shot, I planned on being there most of the morning.

I was quite surprised when my very first signal was about 2 inches deep and pulled out this beautiful platinum wedding ring, not to mention how surprised the husband was.

He walked away crying when I showed it to him.

This is what makes this job fantastic!!!
