I had just gotten home from my ring search in Malibu (about 10:00 PM) when my phone rang. It was Laura, she had lost her electronic car key in the sand at the beach while exercising. She had done a lot of searching, but was unable to find it. She was still there, so I said I would come and see if it was where she thought it might be.

When I got there Laura walked me out explaining how it might have been here or there. I let her know that we had to narrow down the search area because the beach was very wide, and it was now about 10:45 PM, and to do a 3-4 hour search was looking kind of grim. Laura had already figured it out though, and said we need to look for “the stick”, it would put me in the right spot as close to where she had been when she thought she lost the key. At that point I was looking for any stick, and showed her a small one at which she said no it is a big stick. It wasn’t long before she exclaimed “there it is”. I looked and she was right, the stick was a piece of fencing that she had buried to mark the spot. I then began my grid working towards the stick getting a load of bottle caps. After about 30 minutes I started working in the other direction with nothing but more bottle caps. I then began another grid working back towards the strand when I found the key. I looked around (it was very dark on the beach), and Laura was gone. I thought, “she couldn’t have left”. I walked back to where we had first met when I finally saw her, she was on the phone with AAA to get a tow for the car. When she told me, she had arranged a tow, I held out the key and asked, “wouldn’t you rather drive it home”, at which point she came over and gave me a big hug. I was able to make her day, and I am sure she slept well last night. It was a great day.

PLatinum Wedding Band Lost 4th of July at Hermosa Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

I received a call from Rick in the afternoon on the 4th of July. He explained that he had been digging a hole to insert a beach umbrella, when after filling the hole back in, he realized his wedding ring was gone. He had had surgery on his hand, and his fingers were swollen, so he had the ring resized so he would be able to wear it. His hand has now healed from the operation, and his fingers have come back to normal size which made the ring much loser than it had been. I knew it was a busy day at the beach, but also knew that as soon as the people were gone, the county would be cleaning the beaches with their machines, so we could not wait. I told him I would get there as soon as I could, so we arranged to meet.

I got to the beach and Rick met me as I walked out to the area. He brought me over to where he and his family were enjoying their day. He showed me where he believed the ring to have come off. I readied my equipment and began to search. I did not find the ring in that area, so I asked Rick if he would remove the umbrella because its steel shaft was interfering with the search. He agreed, and as he approached the umbrella, I stepped back from the area, took a few swings, and got a real solid tone in the headphones. I asked Rick to hold off pulling the umbrella, because I believed I had found his ring. I scooped, shook out the sand, and there it was. The ring had flipped back as he was digging, and ended up a little out of the area he thought it might have come off. I was glad to have made his 4th of July a much happier day.

Rick sent the following testimonial:

STEVE IS A LIFE SAVER!
On July 4th I lost my wedding band in the sand on Hermosa Beach. I reached out to Steve and within an hour he was there searching with his magic metal detector and FOUND it in less than 10 minutes (I had been searching for an hour). Steve is a great guy and a life saver. I highly recommend him for finding any lost metal item.

I got a call from Andrew yesterday about a ring his father lost at the beach. For Father’s Day the family buried their dad Edgar in the sand, and when he rose up out of the sand, he began to brush the sand off of his clothes when he felt his wedding ring slide off of his finger. The ring was gone immediately. They looked and looked, but were unable to find it. I told them I would leave immediately to come and help.

I got to the spot of the loss, and Edgar showed me what had happened, so I began a grid in the most likely spot, and worked out from it. I covered the whole area finding a few coins, bottle caps and other pieces of metal, but no ring. I decided to cross grid knowing that at times a ring or coin can land on edge, and only be found going in a particular direction. I did another grid perpendicular to the previous one, and then received the signal I was looking for, scooped up the sand, shook it out, and had the ring. Edgar and the family were very happy. Not a very happy thing to lose on Father’s Day, but definitely a happy thing to find! Smiles all around!

Richard called this evening. He had lost his wedding ring while at the beach with his family. He had taken the ring off and wrapped it in his shirt so it would not get lost while going in and around the water. The problem occurred when he went to get his shirt, forgetting the ring was inside. He unraveled his shirt while walking from where they had been sitting, and then realized the ring was missing. He searched but was unable to find the ring. I told him I would be happy to come and help.

When I got to the beach, Richard met me and took me to the area. He explained again what had happened, and in what direction he had been walking, so I had a good idea how I would grid the area. I worked all the area where he had been, and then began to move out. About 10 feet from where they had been sitting I got a good signal in the headphones, and scooped. As I shook out the sand, I could see the gleam of gold in the bottom; I knew I had found the ring. Richard was very happy. I was glad to have restored his joy, and know he will sleep well tonight!

Wedding Ring Lost at Zuma Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

I had just gotten home from recovering an engagement ring, when a call came in from Jason who had lost his wedding ring at the beach. I needed to eat, because I hadn’t eaten all day, so I asked if he could wait, and he agreed to. I let him know I would be on my way as soon as I completed my meal and would let him know.

When I got to the beach Jason and his wife met me, and they took me directly to the area they had been. Wisely Jason had used landmarks to identify where they had been, which helped put me in a good place to help them faster. He had been worried that the incoming tide would have washed his ring into the sea, but from what he told me, I assured him, that even though the water would come up to where they had been sitting, I didn’t think it would wash the ring away. I began my pass, and took about 3-4 swings when I got the signal in the headphones. One scoop, and his ring was in my hand, held out to him. They were surprised it was so quick, but the fact that Jason had used landmarks to get back to the spot helped me to help him. To make the recovery more special, Jason and his wife were going to celebrate their first wedding anniversary in a couple of weeks; how cool is that? What a great day, and what great smiles.

Safety Search for Nails in Torrance, CA Yard

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

I received an email from Sally requesting my services to make sure there were no more nails in her back yard from a recent re-roofing job. She said that the workers had dragged a magnet through, but she was having a birthday party for her young son on Saturday with water fights and bare feet, and she wanted to be certain the nails were gone. I let her know that is something I could help her with, and we arranged to meet later in the early evening.

When I got to her house she showed me the backyard which wasn’t very large, and I expected a quick search. What I found though was that the magnet had removed all of the roofing nails, but there were a multitude of old rusty nails just on or barely under the surface that could have caused some serious damage to her son or his friends. After about an hour I had removed quite a number of rusty nails and other sharp objects, along with some other metal objects. Sally and her husband were very happy to know that the yard did not have any surface dangers to deal with.

Sally sent the following testimonial:

Steve is not just for finding lost engagement rings! My house was recently reroofed and I had the backyard swept over with a magnetic sweeper multiple times in order to catch nails and other roofing debris. My son is having a bday party this Saturday and I just couldn’t rest easy knowing that children would be running around barefoot. Someone recommended Steve and I emailed him this morning. He came out this afternoon and found a handful of nails that looked like tetanus waiting to happen. So thankful he was suggested to me. Seems like a great guy as well. Highly recommend.

Sally

Update: The party went well and kids were still nail-free by the end of the day 😉

Electronic Car Key Lost in Horse Arena in Griffith Park, Los Angele, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

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

Kathrine called yesterday morning explaining how she had been working training horses at the Griffith park horse arena when she received a phone call. When she removed her phone for the call, unknowingly her electronic car key came out and fell into the soft sand of the arena. She had gone back with a rake later to try and recover the key, but with no luck. She was able to locate me on the internet, not really believing a service like this even existed. When I talked with her and asked a few questions, it did sound like a good chance of a recovery, so we arranged to meet at the arena as soon as I could get there.

I got to the park, I met with Kathrine, and she took me over to the arena. When I saw it, it was a very large expanse of sand, fine and deep like the beach. We tried to narrow down the search area. She showed me the approximate spot where she used the phone, so I decided to break up the arena into 4ths, and do a search for each quarter of it. After doing the first 4th with no results, and watching Kathrine doing a little searching on her own, I noticed she was sticking to the outside rail of the arena. I then found out that most of the training the day before had been on the outer perimeter rather than the internal part of the pen. I told her that I was going to change my search method, and search the outer portion first and spiral in as I made each pass. About 5 minutes later I received a good signal and dug, and there in the bottom of my scoop was her key. She was so surprised, and so happy to have her key back, it was the only one she had access to at this time and was dreading having to purchase another. What a wonderful smile, you bet! It was great to make Kathrine’s day yesterday.

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

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

I got a call from Alan yesterday afternoon. His wife had been putting sunscreen on at the beach, and had taken her ring off to do it. The ring had been in her lap, and then she stood up to do something. It was at that moment she realized the ring had been in her lap, and was now buried in the sand. Alan, and his wife, with the help of their friend proceeded to sift through the sand, but could not find the ring. I discussed the loss with Alan, and told him to secure the area, so that someone else could not lay out their towels over the area of the loss. I let him know I was on my way, and would let him know as soon as I arrived.

When I got there Alan met me on the strand, and he took me over to where they were sitting. I could see that they had created a circle around the area, and I knew that if the ring was there we would have a quick search. The reason I ask a lot of questions, and ask people to stay where they believe to loss occurred, is so they can help me to help them, and I can make the process less “painful” for them. I searched all around the center of the circle with nothing. I then went to move a beach chair when my coil swept over the area, and I could hear the low gold tone in the headphones. I missed it on the first scoop, and scooped again. There it was. I reached in and pulled out a beautiful diamond and white gold wedding ring that I handed over to Alan’s wife, who immediately became very emotional; she was so happy. To see the joy all around, and smiles everywhere; made for a great end of a day.

Austrailian Opal Pendant Lost in Horse Stable in Thousand Oaks, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

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

I was on my way home from shopping when Mark called. He told me how his wife had been tending a young horse this morning, when the horse reared up, and one of its hooves hit her in the neck and knocked off her opal pendant. Mark and Farina had been married now only 3 weeks, and this had been a gift Mark bought for her on a trip he had made to Australia. She had also wore it in their wedding, so it had a very sentimental value for them. The stall where the loss occurred was covered in thick sawdust, and they had looked for almost an hour for the lost pendant. I let Mark know that as soon as I got home I would gather my equipment and be on my way.

Mark told me the pendant had only a small thin clasp for metal, so I knew I needed specialized equipment for the search. When I got there Mark and Farina took me to the stall, and explained how the incident occurred, and I got my equipment ready for a search. I must admit it looked like she took a pretty good hit. When I began, I realized we had a problem, the whole floor of the stall had bits of metal in the rubber backing, and I could not get a good signal anywhere. We decided we needed to remove the sawdust from the stall, and put it in an area that had no, or very little metal. I searched shovelful by shovelful with no signal. I think I was expecting a little more metal being involved. I then began to rescan all of the sawdust we had laid out, and when about 3/4 through I heard the slightest squeak in the headphones. I turned up the pin pointer and put it in; nothing. I went over with the coil again, and got the squeak. I put the pin pointer in again, nothing, so I moved the sawdust around. After I moved the material around I saw the smallest glimmer of gold, and reached in and pulled up the pendant. There was almost as much metal involved as a small stud earring; you have to have the right tool for the job. I showed Mark, who rushed over, and gave me a big hug, as did Farina. I am so glad to have made their day; great smiles all around!

Farina sent the following testimonial:

We’re so grateful for Steve’s help in finding the Austrailian Opal Pendant!
It was last Friday and I was working with one of the young horses at the barn, a 2 year old stallion who was feeling frisky, when he reared up in front of me and kicked my collarbone right where my Necklace was. He ripped it off my neck and my blue Opal disappeared in the shavings of that stall. I was super upset about it because it was the first Birthday present my Husband ever gave me and I was wearing it on our Wedding just 2 Weeks before.
I tried to find it for over an hour..( That doesn’t sound that long but the Area where it possibly could have been was so small )..I gave up and called my Mark, my Husband.
He came up with the idea to try it again with a metal detector, because the Opal is held on the necklace by a small piece of Rosegold. Mark looked online to buy a metal detector & was having a hard time finding one for sale nearby. He could get them online but felt we didn’t have time for that since they need to change the shavings in the stall soon. So then he searched for renting a metal detector and came across a website called ringfinders. He clicked on our location and Steve’s name came up.
We were surprised to see there was someone out there who was helping people in this way & we called him immediately. Steve answered on the first call and told us he would love to help us find our lost item. He said he was on his way home and could pick up his equipment and meet us in about an hour and 1/2. As we waited for Steve to come to our side of town we said to ourselves what a great guy he must be to just drop whatever he was doing and spend hours of his time to help us.
Steve showed up as fast as he could, we drove together to the farm and began our search in the stall. We quickly learned the metal detector would not work in the stall because of the metal in the rubber mats on the floor which were made of old car tires. So we decided to empy all of the shavings out onto the ground in front of the stall. Steve was using his metal detector on the shavings and it appeared to be working fine on the dirt floor of the barn but he was not finding anything. This went on for over 1/2 and we had not found anything. My husband and I got down on our hands and knees and started sifting thru the shavings with our hands and after about 15 min of this and a couple prayers Steve turned to my husband and said, ” Does it look like this? “.
We were overcome with joy and gave Steve a big hug & thanked him profusely. Steve is a real human being who is helping people out of a genuine desire to do good in the world and we are grateful to have met him. If you have lost something precious, you should call Steve. He’s like a superhero on his way to the rescue!

Diamond Eternity Wedding Band Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

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

I received an email from Molly last night at about 11:00 PM asking for my help in finding her diamond wedding band. She had included a general location for the loss. I emailed her back letting her know that if she could narrow down the search area for me, I would go and look immediately. The reason for this immediate action is because this beach is cleaned regularly by the county, and is one of the cleanest beaches I know of. I knew that if I didn’t get on this recovery right away, the chances of a recovery would diminish rapidly. I waited for her reply, but received none, so I decided to go and do a search anyway. I searched the whole area that I figured out from her email, and near the end of an hour I got a good signal, but not a gold signal, scooped it, and in the scoop was a diamond eternity ring, but it looked kind of like a kid’s ring, but who am I to make a judgement; I had found a diamond eternity ring (with what I found out when I got home, were not real diamonds). I took a picture of it and sent it to Molly. When I woke this morning I had an email from Molly stating that was not her ring with a picture of a much nicer ring. I let her know that I would go back hoping that the county had not cleaned the beach today.

Molly was not able to meet me at the beach because of her work schedule. She drew a map of the area, and tried to explain where the loss happened in more detail, and also had her husband call to help me understand better. I realized that the night before, I had been searching in the wrong area. When I got to the beach this morning, the first thing I saw was the county tractor towing it’s machine. Right away I didn’t feel good, but went out to search anyway. When I got to the area I saw that the stretch that I was going to search had not been touched by the machine; what a relief that was. I had a fairly short time to search because of a previously arranged search for this same morning, so I tried to make the best of my time. I was getting close to having to leave, when my phone rang, it was the other person I was supposed to help in 30 minutes. She called to let me know that she had found her ring, and I did not need to go there to search. Now I was free to do a very thorough search for Molly’s ring. About 2 hours later I got a good nonferrous signal, put the scoop in, and pulled up a very pretty diamond ring. I knew I had found it this time! I sent another picture to Molly of the new ring, and she sent back an excited affirmation. We arranged to meet after she got off of work to return her ring. When I met Molly she was so happy. She said that she and her husband had just celebrated their 1st wedding anniversary this month. She had agonized over the ring’s loss for 2 days, and I was glad to see her joy restored; another great day!

Molly sent the following testimonial:

I could not be more grateful for Steve a! He is so kind, goes the extra mile & truly gave me back my most prized gift!

I went to the beach with my husband down the street, just like any normal weekend. That Sunday, we decided to just walk down & enjoy the beach for 60 minutes before his parents were here for lunch. Right when we sat down, I decided (NEVER AGAIN) to take off my wedding band I wore down and put sunscreen on my arms. I placed my wedding band next to my leg on the chair. Well.. I then forgot to put the wedding band back on. 60 minutes later we got our chair and towels and walked home. We were almost home when I looked down and said “MY RING!!! I TOOK IT OFF ON THE SAND”!!! We dropped the chair on the sidewalk and raced to the sand where we had sat. We found the exact spot where we sat and starting sifting through the sand. The family next to where we sat saw me crying and they all came over and helped us look. I knew the ring couldn’t be deep, as it only had fallen off a few inches up from the chair.

After we looked for 15 minutes with the kind family, we knew the ring was gone! We had to race back to meet my in-laws for lunch. I couldn’t stop crying but pretend to be ok at lunch. After lunch, I was absolutely DEVASTED. I cried the entire afternoon and evening. I was so upset that I could do something so ridicules to something I treasured so much. We had JUST celebrated our 1year Anniversary.

That night before bed, I googled ” HERMOSA BEACH LOST & FOUND”. The first website that came up was RINGFINDERS.com . I clicked it, found Steve Smith and started reading his testimonials. All the stories sounded so similar to mine! It sounded too good to be true but I decided to email Steve, as it was late at night. I emailed him and only told him the street I had lost the ring at. And Hermosa Beach is known for its MILES of sand! I went to bed crying and felt helpless.

Fast forward to 2am. I woke up and the pit in my stomach was still there. I grabbed my phone to see if Steve had emailed back. Not only had he emailed back, but he had texted, called AND had already been to the beach!!! He had gone to the beach immediately at 12am! My heart was pumping! He had texted me that he had found a ring but unfortunately, it wasn’t mine. I emailed him back at 3am and put together a very basic map of where exactly we sat and what my ring looked like. I was so hopeful that maybe he could give it another shot in the morning.

The next morning while I was at work, Steve reached out that he was at the beach again looking but he needed more details on the location. This was 8:30am!!!! I texted my husband to call Steve right then and explain where we sat. less than 2 hours later….STEVE FOUND MY RING! He texted me a picture and I started crying at work!!!! He even offered to bring the ring to me AT WORK!

Steve is unbelievable. I thought that ring that I treasured was GONE for good. Not only did he go in the middle of night, he went first thing the next morning. He never gave up searching and was so kind. I was reluctant to email Steve with Ring Finders but I cannot explain the appreciation I have for this website and Steve Smith. If you have lost something, please do not hesitate to call Steve. He is a true professional and angel! I am forever indebted to Steve and am so immensely blessed to receive this gift from him. Thank you again, Steve and Ring Finders!
