Al called me last week to ask my help in finding his wedding ring. He had been cleaning out a yard drain of dead leaves in his neighbor’s yard, and spreading the leaves out so as to not make a pile of them when he noticed his wedding ring of 46 years missing from his hand. We talked, and he told me that as soon as he secured permission from the neighbor to have me search with my detector, he would call me back. He called yesterday letting me know he had the permission, and we arranged to do the search today.

When I arrived Al was waiting for me. I got my equipment together, and he walked me over to the yard. It was overgrown with grass, and had a thick layer of dead leaves which would create quite a problem in locating a small item like a wedding ring for sure. Al told me he had tried with a detector his wife had purchased for him previously, but without success. I have found that without experience, trying to do the search not knowing how to use the detector usually results in an experiment in frustration for the person looking. I have the time on the detector, and the number of recoveries to know when to press on in an abysmal situation. When I turned the detector on, right away I was experiencing electrical interference, so I adjusted for that. Then there was a chain link fence next to the search area, so when I received a good signal near the fence, I adjusted the pin pointer for that area. The yard was very clean of metal trash, and I got a couple of good signals that proved to be too deep for recent loss. It wasn’t until I got about 20 feet from the drain that I got a great double beep on a shallow signal, put the pin pointer in moving the leaves around, when we both sighted the ring edge on its side pushed into the dirt. Al was so very happy when I lifted it out and handed it to him. He and his wife picked out the rings (hers is similar) 46 years ago when they got married. 46 years, truly a marriage made in Heaven. So glad to be a help, especially in these dire times!

Anthony called last night about 7:30 PM asking if I would be able to help him find his wedding ring that he lost earlier in the day. I don’t think he was ready for my answer when I told him that I would meet him at the spot of the loss the same night. I believe it surprised him that I was available at the moment. I explained that time was the enemy of a successful recovery, and he asked if he could call back. I also let him know that the fact that it was dark now would not hinder the search. He did call back, and we arranged to meet at the beach at about 9:00 PM.

When I arrived I let Anthony know, and we found each other. He then explained that he and some friends were playing football in the sand, and he realized his “tight fitting” ring was gone when they got back to the car at the end of the day. When he took me out to the area, he showed me a large section of beach to search, and I explained that the process is slow and deliberate in order to not miss anything. I then began at one end of the area working my way back in a nice even grid to the other end of the loss area. The thing that made the search easier was that there was very little metal trash. I did get a few bottle caps, a bit of aluminum, and some tin foil, along with some coins but not enough to slow the search down much. The clean beach allowed me to cover the sand quicker than I expected. After about 1 1/2 hours I got a good sweet gold sound in the head phones, dug, and in my scoop was Anthony’s ring. I just held it out for him to his surprise. He did let me know that he was getting a bit discouraged because I was finding things, but not the ring. I find this happens a lot because the expectation level is very high in the beginning, but wanes as the things that are dug up are not what we are looking for. It is then that with experience I continue on without the discouragement, because I know that the process has to be completed before moving on to other options. I was able to give Anthony back his token of commitment given him by his wife on that special day, which made his day much happier.

I received a call from Anthony, a member of a film crew involved in a photo shoot for Goop, an Internet lifestyle company. He told me that during the shoot, one of the models had completed a session, and realized that one of the designer earrings she was wearing was missing. Anthony then put me in touch with Jacklynn, and we arranged to meet as soon as I could get there.

When I got to the beach, Jacklynn was waiting for me, and took me out to where they believed the earring to be missing. There was still a lot of equipment on the beach, so I began working around it all. She showed me where the model had been in the different areas of the beach, and I did a thorough search not finding the ring. We then started moving the photo equipment around allowing me access to some of the sand I could not reach before. I then asked to see the other earring, and placed it on the sand. When I passed my coil over it I realized it was not a booming signal as thought it would be. Then the crew broke for lunch, and took all of the equipment back to the parking area which allowed me to do a tight grid over the whole area. All the time I was picking up bottle caps, pull tabs, foil, screws, and nails. It wasn’t until I got to the top of one area of the slope, that I received a real quiet whisper of a signal in the head phones and dug. In my scoop was the earring I was looking for. I brought it back to cheers from all involved, which made it a lot of fun. Chandler, one of the models joined me in the picture above. Leaving happiness behind is my goal!

Don contacted me last week to see if I would help him find some coins, and some other items his daughter had buried in a backyard a couple of years ago. She remembered burying 3 tubes of 1 oz. silver coins, and had a good idea where they might be, we worked out a time to meet according to our schedules.

I arrived at the property, and met Don and his daughter Katie, and they showed me where to look. I began looking for the other items first, but was unable to find them even thought the ground had been dug out pretty deep, so Katie showed me the area she believed the silver coins had been buried. I searched the area, and then received a great signal, dug, and out popped a plastic tube wrapped in plastic. It was heavy, so I knew I had found one of the coin caches. It turned out to be a tube of 20 1 oz. silver coins. I gave it to Don and Katie, and they were very excited that I was able to find it. I continued searching that area, but was unable to find the other two tubes of coins, and it was getting late, so we called it a day. I told them I would like to come back to complete the search.

I was able to get over to the property yesterday and do some more searching. Don had remembered another area he thought the coins might have been buried which was not near the previous area, so I began a search there. There was an old galvanized pipe that was on top of the ground which was hindering my search of the spot, but I was getting an alternative signal right near the pipe, so I dug there. It wasn’t too deep, and I plucked out 2 tubes of 20 1 oz. silver coins which I was able to give to Don and Katie; again two very excited people.

After two successful searches, 60 1 oz. silver coins in total, I let Don know that I would return for the search of the other items again because I really believe they are there to be found. So this is an unfinished blog I hope, and will later be able to post some more great news.

Ammo Box Time Capsule in Palos Verdes, CA…Found After 8 Years of Being Buried

Shawn called me asking if I could help him. It was a unique request, he and his friend had buried an ammo box (time capsule) full of their personal things 8 years prior, and now decided to dig it up. His friend had gotten very ill, so Shawn thought it would be something that could bring a bit of light back to him if he brought this memory to his friend. Also he was doing some construction in the area, and thought the time capsule might be covered, making the recovery impossible, so he wanted to get I found. We arranged a time when we were both available to do the search.

When I arrived, Shawn took me to the area, and showed me where he believed the box had been buried. It wasn’t a very big area, maybe 8×8 feet, but the ground was very hard and rocky, so a general dig would have been difficult. I tried one detector, and was receiving too much interference from surrounding metal, then switched detectors to be able to pin point the buried box better. I found one signal that was intermittent, so I continued to look. I then found another better signal under an earthen ledge. Shawn seemed to think the second signal might have been closer to the area where the box was originally buried, so he began to dig there. He carved out a few inches of the ledge with no box, so I checked again, but this time checked the depth range on the detector. It showed that he needed to go in about 9 to 10 inches, so he continued to dig. He finally hit something hard and metallic, and figured he found the box. He dug a little more finding that it was the box. Shawn then called his children and their friend over to finish the dig so as to include them in the excitement of finding “buried treasure”. It was fun to see their excitement as they dug out the time capsule, and then opened it up. I am sure that Shawn’s friend will also find some joy in seeing this item he and his good friend had participated in burying together. This is truly a fun service to be a part of!

I received a call this morning from Coles, she had lost her ring yesterday at the beach, and was unable to find it even though she had her friends helping. Other friends offered to let her use their metal detectors to go back and find the ring, but they proved ineffective in picking up the ring she was wearing at the time, so she did not try with them. I use the best and latest metal detecting equipment available, so I knew if the ring was still there I would find it. She explained what had happened, and it sounded like everything was in her favor, so we arranged to meet later in the afternoon when she had time available.

I got to the beach a little early, and found a spot in the shade, as it was quite warm today. When Coles arrived we walked out to the area of the loss. I could see where they had been searching the sand the day before. Coles showed me where they had been sitting, and where she was when she was putting her jewelry back on. She did not notice the ring missing until she was ready to leave, but had no idea where it had fallen. I began my grid, and was receiving a lot of electrical interference, so I reduced my sensitivity to diminish it in order to hear the ring when I was over it with my coil. Right when I got to the end of my first pass, I heard a nice sweet gold tone in the head phones, dug, and in my scoop was a big beautiful ring fully encircled with pave and baguette diamonds. I was so glad that I was able find such a ring for her. I believe her smile tells it all. It is always nice to be able bring out such a great smile!

Yumi called today with a slight air of desperation. She had been at the park with friends and their children. Then Yumi wanted to take some pictures of her 1 year old child, and the special gold babies ring that was given by Yumi’s stepmother. Her child had the ring on when they arrived at the park, but when it was time for the pictures, the ring was gone. Yumi and her friends combed the grass for at least 1 1/2 hours without being able to find the ring, and when she was feeling like giving up, her friend’s husband found my number, and encouraged her to call. When she called We went over what happened on the phone, and I let her know I would be there right away.

When I arrived, I met Yumi and her friend. Yumi went over where they had been that day. The area was not super large, so I knew that if the ring was still there, I would find it, I just needed to start a slow and deliberate grid. I started where they got out of the car and began my way towards where they ended up. I was receiving many different signals from surface metals. I found a few pennies and some tin foil. About half way, I got a real good double beep in the head phones, put the pin pointer in moving the grass around, when I saw the little gold ring. I reached in and held it up for Yumi. She came over happy and relieved that it was found. Everybody went home happy today!

Breeze called last night as I was finishing up my dinner. Her husband’s ring had been lost at the beach, and after a thorough search of the area, they were unable to find it. She was hoping I would be able to help. I asked her some questions, and found out that the loss occurred earlier that day, so the possibility of a recovery was good. Also, she told me that she had watched the ring fly into the sand, so she knew very well where the ring should be, which only enhanced the recovery possibilities. I let her know I would be on my way as soon as I got my equipment together.

When I got to the meeting place, Breeze, her husband Kartik, and a friend met me and walked me down to the area of the loss. It turned out to be a secluded area, and then she explained exactly what caused the loss. Kartik had given Breeze the ring to hold while he went surfing. Breeze was hold their dog’s leash in one hand, and had the ring on her thumb of the other hand. As soon as their dog saw Kartik coming from the water back to them, he jerked his leash, which caused Breeze’s other hand to jerk in the other direction, and the ring to fly off. When this happened she looked back to see the ring go towards the sand. It is truly amazing how hard it is to find a ring even though you know where it should be, but that is why I use the best equipment available in order to make that process as “painless” as possible. It took all of about 3 minutes to find the ring and have it back on Kartik’s finger. It takes the ability to ask the right questions, and have the most up to date equipment to make such a recovery possible. I am really happy to make others happy, and this was one of those times.

I got a call from a gentleman from Alaska who was vacationing in Southern California. He was calling for Naim who was also vacationing in Southern California, only Naim was here from Paris, France. He had been at the beach with a friend, and wanted to go in the water, so he took his rental car key, wrapped it in a plastic bag, and buried it so no one would take it while he was away. The problem occurred when he was ready to leave. He and his friend grabbed their belongings, and walked off to the car to leave, only to find that they had left the key in the sand. They immediately went back, and searched the sand, but were unable to find the key. It is very hard to pinpoint an area in the sand after having left for even a short while. I let them know I was on my way.

When I got to the beach I met Naim and his friend. They showed me where they had been digging and combing the sand, so I began my search there. I covered the complete area without finding the key. I let Naim know that I would expand the search area which relieved him because he knew it had to be there. I continued my grid, and after 2 passes dug up a plastic bag. I reached down, and pulled it up, and there was the key wrapped up nice and tight. Naim was very happy. He was going back to Paris in just a few days, and I was glad to give him a bit of American hospitality.

I got a call from Bryan last night. He had lost his iPhone at the beach earlier, and was in desperate need of assistance. He had buried it earlier in order to go in the water and not have to worry about someone walking off with it. It happened to be a work phone, and he was on a business trip from out of state, scheduled to leave today with the boarding pass on the phone. I told him I would be there as soon as possible, so as not leave the phone there until the morning when the county sifting machines would go through, and the phone would be forever gone.

When I got there Bryan took me to the area of the loss, and I could see he had spent a good amount of time gridding the area, but without any luck. I started my search, and on my first pass, got a large signal, dug a little, and retrieved Bryan’s phone. He was very happy, but did not want his picture taken, so as not to be known for losing his company’s phone; understood.
