Contact: 1-310-953-5268

Yesterday in the late afternoon, while sitting at home, I received a call from Jason. He had been playing beach volleyball, when sometime during the game, he noticed his gold chain was missing from around his neck. On that chain was a St. Christopher medal that his girlfriend had given him, so the sentimental value was enormous. He told me that he and his friends had searched for at least 45 minutes with no success. I told him I would be on my way.

When I got to the beach and walked to the area of the loss, I noticed a lone young man waiting by the volleyball court. I walked over, and he began to tell me what had happened as I asked my questions. I looked at the court and saw the grid lines where he and his friends had drug their feet and hands in the sand. During this time his friends came over, and there seemed to be a party atmosphere; the hopes were increased for a recovery. I began a slow grid of the court, and on my first pass I received a strong signal, dug, and out came the gold chain. Everybody got real excited. I continued my grid working my way out from where the chain was found. Jason asked that I concentrate on the area of the found chain, and I told him I would as soon as I finished my current grid. I made one more pass about 20 feet from where the chain was found when I received another stronger signal, one scoop, and the medal was in the scoop. Everybody was surprised that it was so far from the chain, but I have learned that things don’t always happened as we perceive. Needless to say, the guys were extremely happy, especially Jason. What a great evening!

Diamond Wedding Ring Lost at Venice Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

Two days ago I received an email late in the evening from Raja regarding his wedding ring. He had been at the beach, and while brushing the sand off of his hands against his pants, his wedding ring flew off. He and his wife looked for it but were unable to find it. Later he was searching the internet and located The Ring Finders site where he found me. I emailed him back asking that he call, but he was unable to make the call until the next morning. He called, and I asked my standard questions, finding out that the loss was in a place that the County beach cleaning machines would not be going over, so I felt good about a recovery. I arranged to meet his wife at the spot yesterday morning because Raja had to work.

When I got there Raja’s wife Harpreet and her brother in law met me and took me to the area of the loss. After a brief question and answer session, I proceeded to search for the lost ring. I began at the furthest possible area away from the loss and worked my way back to where Raja had been standing when cleaning his hands. It was when I got to his previous position that I received a good signal, dug, and had his ring in my scoop. The ring had not gone very far, but had flown far to the left of his original position. I pulled it out and showed it to Harpreet who gladly identified it as her husband’s ring. She told me they had been married just 2 years, so the ring was a fresh token of their commitment to each other. Needless to say she was very happy to be able to go home and give it back to Raja. They asked that I not use pictures of them in the blog, so you get me with the ring instead. A nice day of smiles!

iPhone 7 Lost at Manhattan Beach, CA, Found and Happily Returned.

I received an email from Amber last Tuesday morning asking if I might be able to help her find her iPhone. She had lost it 2 days prior at the beach, and was unable to find it. I asked her to give me a call, so I could discuss the loss with her, and she called right away. She told me that the “Find My iPhone App” said it showed it was still there the day after it was lost, and the area of the loss I knew was not a high trafficked area, so the possibilities of a recovery increased more. She let me know that she was at work, and could meet me later in the day, but I felt I should get on this search right away and asked for all the specifics. After getting all the information, I was on my way.

When I got to the spot, I was relieved to see that the area had not been cleaned by the County sifting machines, so I knew the possibilities of a recovery increased. I began my search, and after about 4 passes, and a few coins and other metal objects, I got a very strong overloading signal. I brushed the sand away with my foot so as to not damage her phone, if that was what I had found, and about an inch under the surface, there it was. I emailed Amber to let her know I found the phone, and she asked that I provide a picture. She was very excited that I was able to help, so we arranged to meet after she got off of work, When we met she and her friend were so happy. Amber told me she had already decided to buy a new phone, but that would have been a burden because she was to start nursing school soon, and really could not afford to spend the extra money. So happy to have made Amber’s day last week!

Gold Family Crest Signet Ring Lost at Venice Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

I hadn’t been home too long Sunday after a successful ring recovery at Hermosa Beach, and was waiting as my wife was getting dinner ready when I received a call from Natasha. She had been at the beach on our very warm day, and went to apply sunscreen. To do so, she removed her family crest signet ring that had been given to her by her father. All of the members of her family received a family crest ring when they reach a certain age, so this was special. She told me she had stayed in the spot of the loss, so that was good news. I let her know that I would be coming immediately, we could not wait because the county sifting machines would be over the area early in the morning, and many people metal detect the area all the time.

When I got there it was dark, but we were able to find each other pretty quick. She showed me the area, and expanded it out a bit to be sure I would be able to cover everywhere she had been. I got my equipment ready, and she and her friends moved their towels and bags. I turned my detector on, swung to my right, and got a great signal. One scoop, and Natasha’s ring was in my scoop. She had unknowingly put me right next to her ring, and within 20 seconds it was found. Turned out to be a great day. Natasha’s smile tells it all.

Ring Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA Volley Ball Court…Found and Happily Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

Sunday afternoon I received a call from Daiane. She had been playing volley ball with friends, went to hit the ball, and felt her ring come off of her finger. She and her friends searched for the ring, but were unable to find it. The ring had been given to her by her boyfriend as a token of commitment to their relationship with appropriate engravings. I told her I could help because it had just happened, would still be there, and we should be able to find it. I was on my way.

When I got there, Daiane took me over to spot where she hit the ball, showed me the direction she swung her hand, and told me she hit the ball with a great amount of force. She had been up right next to the net and hit the ball over and across the court. She was certain the ring would be right in the direction of the swing, near the net. It was the logical solution, but with the many rings I have searched for I have found that there are times when a ring loss is anything but logical. I began my search in the most logical spot, no ring. I then began a grid of the whole court, both sides, no ring. I then worked the outside of the court in the direction of the swing, no ring. Then I began going around the outside of the whole court. During this search I found a few coins and some other items, but no ring. It wasn’t until I was outside the court behind where she had been standing that I got a good signal, and had her ring in my scoop. It seems that when she hit the ball, the ring bounced off of the ball, and flew 20 feet behind her, not what they expected. It is important to think and search out of the box, even if the person you are helping is sure where the item should be. It was great to put a smile back on her face, and faces of her friends.

Lost Ring at the Beach…Found and Returned

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I was metal detecting at the beach when a young man came running up to me with some of his friends. Noah had been having fun with his friends in the beach sand, and then realized his ring that his mother had given him was gone. He didn’t know what to do because the sand had swallowed it up, and although they searched for it, they were not able to find it. He looked around, and saw me down by the water metal detecting, and realized I might be able to help. I told him everything was in his favor, and we would find his ring.

Noah took me right to the area where they were playing around, and explained what had happened. I began my search, and found that we had to widen the search area. It wasn’t more than 3 minutes, and I had Noah’s ring in my scoop, a ring that was very sentimental, because of its origin, his mother. Was glad to be able to make his day.

Wedding Ring Lost Christmas Eve at Newport Beach, CA…Found and Joyfully Returned.

I was relaxing at home Christmas Eve afternoon when I received a call from Yogi. He was on vacation from Houston, TX to visit with family for the Holidays. He had lost his wedding ring at the beach while throwing a football to his family members. They had been there earlier in the day when it happened. They searched for the ring but could not find it. They talked of renting a metal detector, but it was Christmas Eve. One of the family members searched the internet, and found The Ring Finder’s web site where they located me. Yogi told me that he would meet me at the beach, and I told him I would be on my way.

When I got to the beach, I walked out and met with Yogi. He showed me how they had marked out the area of where he believed the loss to have occurred. The good thing was that he had been throwing away from the water, so I knew there would be a better chance of a recovery. I began a grid, and worked my way up and back getting a few faint signals, I dug them, but they were not fruitful. I then narrowed my search to a specific area, and made a few more passes, and on the turn of the last pass I got a good strong signal and dug again. There in the bottom of my scoop was Yogi”s ring, the 24K gold band gleaming in the sunshine. I held it up while he was taking pictures of his family. He did not notice at first, but the rest of the family saw the ring and began clapping and shouting for joy which caught Yogi’s attention. He looked up, and with a great big smile came over and accepted his ring. What a joy it is to restore someone’s joy to them.

Yogi sent me this testimonial to include here:

Steve!  Thank you again so much!

I was spending time with my family during the holidays in 2017 on Newport beach, and happened to be tossing a football with my cousins.  About an hour later, I noticed my wedding ring was missing.  I had a feeling that it happened during the football toss.  I had mentioned it to my wife about me misplacing it, she was not too thrilled.

My cousin and I rushed back to the spot, but couldn’t locate the ring.  He pulled up a site called Ring Finders on the web, and told me to call. I called and Steve Smith picked up and said that he was on his way.  I asked how much the service was, and he said whatever we felt we wanted to pay. This was Christmas Eve so we were a bit worried about any one actually working.

Steve arrived, and I told him what had happened. I showed him the area where I felt it could be and he asked me a few questions and then proceeded to work.  I was back to my family and within 10 minutes, everyone started cheering.  I looked back and Steve was walking towards me holding the ring in his hand.

I couldn’t believe that within such a short time, he was able to produce the ring!  We chatted for a few minutes, and he told me about his method.  Best part of our conversation was the reason why he did it, he said it was THAT moment when he finds the item and how the mood changes in an instant!

Very thankful that Steve was available and he was able to locate something very important to myself and family.  Thank you a ton RING FINDERS!

White Gold Wedding Ring Lost at Redondo Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

Yesterday I received a call from Cathy, she was asking for help in finding her husband David’s wedding ring at the beach. They had been there the day before in the afternoon, and sometime when applying sunscreen, his ring went missing. They looked, but were unable to find it, or remember exactly where they had been sitting. Cathy found me on The Ring Finders web site, and called. I was able to go right away, and they were at the location, which was going to be a big help.

When I got there Cathy met me and walked me down to the area she believed the loss to have occurred. I took one look at the beach, and my heart immediately sank. The beach had the tell tail sign of having been cleaned by the county sifting machine not the rake, smoothed beach with tire tracks. So the first thing I did was to inform Cathy that because of the beaches condition, the prospects did not look well for a successful search, but told her that there is always hope, and I would conduct the search none the less. David came over not long after and using the pictures he had taken when they were there tried to narrow down the area where they had been sitting. He showed me the pictures, and then said he thought he had remembered a red piece of plastic that was on the beach being the same one that they had been next to the day before. Looking at the pictures, the pattern in the sand from the sifters looked the same as they did now. Could it be that they had skipped a day, and not many people had visited that area since yesterday, I was encouraged, and began my search. One pass, two, three, four, bobby pins, bottle caps, a piece of foil, a penny, and then on pass five, a good solid signal, one scoop, and there it was David’s white gold ring. I held it up towards where they had been sitting, and they came right over. Cathy gave me a hug, and David shook my hand, both very happy to be able to hold David’s ring again, and see it again where it belongs. Another happy couple, and a great day!

Gold Cross With Diamonds Lost in Redondo Beach, CA…Found.

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I received a call from Erica today regarding her 6 year old daughter’s cross. It seems that as she was bringing her daughter home from school, her daughter removed her necklace that held the cross that Erica’s sister had given her daughter at her baptism over 5 years before. Erica had just recently allowed her daughter to start wearing the cross, and because she had received a necklace from her school mates, and she had been admiring it, somehow the necklace with her baptismal cross came loose. There was also another gem on the necklace which they were able find, but unable to locate the cross. We arranged to meet as soon as we both could get to the area.

When I pulled up Erica was waiting for me right where they had found the first gem. I got ready, and began searching. I found a nail, and there were some deeper items but no cross. Erica began to backtrack, and we worked the area going back, more deep items, a ball bearing, but no cross. The one thing I was able to do was to eliminate the most obvious possibilities, and mentioned to her that sometimes we have to think outside of the box. As I was scanning a patch of grass Erica came up to me excited that she had found the cross. It was over 100 feet from where she had originally thought it to be, and was lying on the painted line of the crosswalk; yellow gold on a yellow crosswalk, diamonds down, a very tricky target indeed, totally out of the box. She told me that she would never have looked that far away if I had not eliminated the areas she thought for sure it was lost in. It was a pleasure to see her joy restored.

iPhone Lost at Manhattan Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

Monday morning I had just gotten up when I received a call from Carly. She and her family had gone to the beach to experience the city’s Christmas fireworks the night before. They had created a little seating area in the sand, and her husband gave her his iPhone to hold for him, which she dutifully placed in her purse for safekeeping. During their time there her youngest got up and began running from the group, which caused Carly to jump up to give chase. During the chase, not realizing her purse was still open, the phone came out and embedded itself in the sand. She had not realized what happened until her husband asked for his phone. It was dark, and there was a lot of sand, and their searching became futile. Carly was not able to sleep, and found me on The Ring Finders site at 3:00 AM, thankfully she waited until 7:00 AM to call:-) I let her know that I would be there as soon as I got ready, and asked if she could make sure the county beach sifters left that area alone by waiting at the spot until I got there.

When I got to the beach Carly was waiting with her little one, a young bundle full of energy. She showed me the area they had been sitting, and I asked about what had happened, and where they ran to. I began my search, and Carly took her little one to the swings not far off. I made about 3 passes when I received an overpowering signal, and decided to just brush the sand aside with my foot. There it was, not 2 inches under the sand. I picked it up, wiped the dust off on my shirt, and waved it towards Carly, who became very excited, grabbed her son and ran over. While she was on her way, a group of people on a balcony overlooking the area commenced clapping for our success. What a great morning, lots of happy people.
