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.

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!

Khrysta called about 7:30 PM in dire need of metal detecting service. She had buried her keys on the beach so that she could go in the water without worrying someone would take them. The problem was that when she and her friend were ready to leave, they packed everything up and went back to the car, a good distance from their original position. Needless to say, it seemed an impossible task to find them again, as there were very few people, or other landmarks to get them back to the exact spot they had been in. I let her know I would be there as soon as I could get there.

When I got there Khrysta and her friend met me, and took me out to the area they believed the loss to have occurred. As I looked over the area under the light of my headlight, I could see where they had searched, so I began my grid. I made about 8 passes, When I noticed another area where they had searched, and asked if that might have been where they had been. They weren’t sure at that point, but felt that I was searching in the most likely spot, so I continued my grid. It was about 4 more passes, and I got a signal, dug and saw this big pink light stick in the scoop. Khrysta and her friend saw it too, knew that I had found the keys, and came right over. They were very happy. Now they could go home without worry. Glad to have helped!

Peter called for help, he had lost his wedding ring while he was playing volleyball at the beach. He had taken the ring off and put it in his bag for safekeeping, but sometime during the day, while taking things out of the bag his ring must have been pulled out, and fell into the sand. It was early in the afternoon when he called, and knowing the beaches to be packed because of the holiday weekend, I asked that we postpone the search to the evening when most people would have left, so I could get parking close to the area of the loss, which he agreed to do.

When I got to the beach, I first met Peter’s wife Victoria because Peter was looking for a parking space. She showed me the area she believed the loss to have occurred, and I began my search, I made a few passes working a little out of the search area to insure that I covered it all. Then on about the 3rd pass, got the sweet tone of gold in the head phones, dug and in my scoop was Peter’s ring. Victoria was standing out from me about 20 feet away when I made the recovery, so I held the ring up in the light of my headlight, and she came running over; Peter was not there yet. When Peter arrived, Victoria ran over to him, got down on one knee, and placed the ring back on his finger; a very cool scene indeed. Needless to say Peter was in total surprise that I had found the ring so quickly. What a fun recovery!

Victoria sent the following testimonial:

We truly thank you for your response, speedy recovery of such an important symbol of our marriage, and generosity with your time last night. We were really inspired and touched by what you and other Ring Finders are doing. With so much disappointment and sadness in the world, people like you and organizations founded upon purpose and authentic helpfulness is a wonderful reminder that there is so much good all around us.

Thank you thank you thank you, and good luck in all your future searches!
Victoria & Peter

Susan called me and said her friend Mike lost his wedding band at the beach. Mike had placed his ring in the cup holder of his chair and when it was time to leave he picked up the chair and the ring went flying into the sand. When I arrived at the beach I saw Mike with a kids plastic shovel trying to search for his ring. He was happy to see me and all it took was less then two minutes of searching to find it. Susan and Mike were very pleased with The Ring Finders service.

Alejandro contacted me about 8:00 PM asking if I could help him find his lost wedding ring. He had lost it earlier that day, and had a pretty good idea as to the general area where it could be. He originally was thinking the next morning, but I convinced him that even though it was now dark, it would be best to go and try that night. I knew that everything would be fresh in his mind, and any even small markers would still be there to help narrow down the search area. He agreed to meet me there that night.

It was about 9:00 PM when we met at the beach. He and his wife walked me out to the area of the loss. There was a great expanse of sand so it was imperative to get the location narrowed down as much as possible. On most beaches everything tends to look the same, and even more so at night with a limited light beam to lighten the area. Alejandro felt he had gotten me to the spot, and I began my search. I was finding bottlecaps, and tin foil, but not much else. Alejandro remembered having dug a small hole in the sand in the area they had been sitting, and proceeded to look for it. About 15 minutes into my search, he and his wife called me over, they had found the small hole. It was about 3 orr4 inches across, and looked to be about 6 inches deep, definitely unique to what I had been seeing. When I swung just to the right of the hole over a small mound of sand, I heard what sounded like the sweet sound of gold in my ear phones. One scoop, and there it was, Alejandro’s ring. I brought it out and gave it to him. He and his wife were very happy we were able to do the search. Not gone forever, but found and returned. Happiness all around!

Wedding ring recovered in Huntington Beach by The Ring Finders

I received a call from Chanel to see if I could help her find her wedding ring. She had been at dog beach when she realized her ring was slipping off her finger so she took it off and put it on top of her backpack. Soon after a dog was digging in the sand and threw sand on top of her backpack, forgetting about her ring she picked up the backpack to shake off the sand and her ring disappeared.

Chanel met me at the beach and we walked to the area where she had been the day before. I started searching and right away I got several signals, a dog tag, 2 toy monster trucks and a dime. The next signal sounded really good and when I scooped up some sand I saw her ring in the hole. I called her over to look in the hole and she reached in and grabbed it with a big smile on her face.

Thanks for calling The Ring Finders

Custom Black Belt Shaped Ring Lost in Yard in Santa Monica, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

I received an email from Barbara, asking if could help her find her husband’s ring lost in a yard a year ago. He had been throwing something to his grandkids when the ring flew off of his finger, and was gone. They never saw it again. I did not think it would be a problem as long as it was still there. She wanted to do the search on his birthday, and give the ring back to him as a present to surprise him. The ring was custom made, and he wore it as a symbol of his receiving his Black Belt as a youth, so it had great meaning and sentimental value to him.

When I got to the property, Barbara took me to the yard which was not very big, and I could see was very well manicured. There was not a blade of grass out of place, nor a leaf anywhere on the ground. I thought to myself that if it looked like this the day the ring was lost, how could they not see it, but began my search anyway. I got a good signal, and turned to the owner of the property (the grandkids father), and let him know that I would have to dig a small hole, which he was not pleased to hear, but gave me the go ahead. I dug the hole only to find a buried wire, which made him very nervous about me digging any more holes. He pointed me to another part of the yard that he remembered searching for the ring at the time it was lost. I conducted my search in that area, and got another good signal about 2 inches deep. I let him know that to recover this signal, I would have to dig again, he did not want me to, and I understood his worry, but let him and Barbara know, that the only way to find out if we had found the ring or not was to dig the signal, because I did not want to damage the ring. He finally relented, and I dug. When I flipped the plug of grass and dirt over, there in the dirt was the band of a yellow gold ring shinning in the sunlight. I pulled the ring and gave it to Barbara, needless to say, she was very happy to know that she was going to be able to surprise her husband with a wonderful birthday gift; truly a great day!

Last week I received a call from a contractor trying to find an access plate that had been covered over by about 4 inches of asphalt in the repaving of a parking lot. He did not want to rip up a bunch of the new asphalt to find the plate. When I got there he gave me a general area for the search, and in about 15 minutes, he was able to continue his work. Another happy day.

Jose called last night about 7:00 PM asking if I was the guy who finds rings, and I told him I was definitely one of the guys who help people find their lost rings. He told me his wife had lost her wedding and engagement rings (they were soldered together) at the beach earlier that day. After we talked for while and I asked a lot of questions, I let him know I was on my way, and would let him know when I arrived.

When I got to the beach it was already dark, and they were waiting in the parking lot. I met his wife Esmeralda and we talked about the loss as we walked out to the area they believed the loss to have occurred. I found out that she had these rings for 17 years. Esmeralda remembered taking her rings off to put on sunscreen and putting the rings in her shorts pocket. Later as they were getting ready to leave, she shook her pants out, and ring was gone into the soft sand. They told me they had searched the sand for over 3 hours before they called me, so by the time I arrived it had been at least 4 to 5 hours since they knew the ring was lost. When we got back to the area the darkness made it difficult to identify the exact spot they were, and they gave me an estimated area to search, so I began. I kept working my way out pulling up bottle cap after bottle cap. Finally After they thought I was going out of the area they thought the rings might have been lost, I showed them the bottle caps. I had at least 60 by that time, and I knew that for every dig I make their anticipation rate goes up, and then down until people begin to get discouraged. When we discussed the possibilities, Jose and Esmeralda were basically ready to throw in the towel, but I said “look, none of us has to go to work tomorrow, so I will continue”. Even at that they went back over by the parking lot as I continued my search. I searched down the slope, and then began my search in the opposite direction from my beginning search, when after about 5 passes and over 100 bottle caps later, one broken bottle, and a total search time of about 2 hours, one more good signal, and I had a beautiful set of diamond rings in my scoop. I threw away all the trash, and headed back to the parking lot with the rings on my little finger. As I got closer Jose and Esmeralda saw me coming and rose to meet me. I was looking down at the sand when I explained how I searched each area without any luck, but when I touched on the last area, I said, “AND THEN I FOUND THIS” as I opened my hand to show the rings. Esmeralda immediately went to tears and gave me a big hug, while Jose paced back and forth in total disbelief. I know that after all that time of their searching, and then watching me pull up bottle cap after bottle cap, they thought it would not be possible to find the rings, but WE ARE THE RING FINDERS, and if it is there we can find it. What an awesome couple, what an awesome night!

Esmeralda sent the following testimonial:

Steve is an absolute God send! He is professional, kind, courteous and relentless! My husband and I were at Santa Monica Beach where I took off my wedding bands and placed them in my shorts pocket. About three or so hours later I realized that I did not have my rings on and that I had left them in my pocket. When I went to go look in the pocket, which I had hung on our beach chair, I found out with great disbelief, and immediate alarm that my rings were missing. I immediately started to cry and panic, while my husband and I dug through the sand all around us. Hours later we decided to ask the lifeguard if anyone turned any rings in to him but to our dismay, he said no. He did say however, that he had some cards for people who found lost jewelry. I called the person on the first card that was handed to me but the phone just rang and rang. I called again and still got no answer. My husband called the person, Steve Smith, using the information on the second card and he received a quick and friendly answer. We were concerned that it was close to 8:00 pm, which is when the beach parking lot closed, but Steve stayed calm and told my husband that he would find other parking and for us not to worry about that. That in itself let me know how great a person Steve was without even meeting him. We were assured that he would come out as soon as possible -and he did. My husband and I told ourselves that we had a lot of faith and hope that the person that God sent to us would find our rings, but we’re also realistic. The fact of the matter was that it was past 8 PM at night and dark, plus we were sitting on a huge beach- sure we gave Steve an approximation as to where we were sitting, but with so many beach visitors moving around in the sand all day long, what were the chances of the rings been recovered? Our hearts aches knowing that there was a chance that we would never recover the wedding bands that my husband placed on my finger at our wedding a little over 17 years ago. We went through so many emotions that night, including a lot of praying as well as a lot of crying. When we wanted to give up, Steve was the first to say that he had all night and that we would get them back. This gave me and my husband great hope once again. About 2 1/2 hours after calling Steve out, he came walking back towards us and let us know about the specific effort he made to find our rings. Steve let us know that he found a lot of bottle caps and other items that were not our rings. As he talked about the process, I felt a sense of dread and great loss but at the same time I felt thankful that Steve spent so much time and energy really trying to help us. Just then, Steve pulled out my wedding rings from his fanny pack. He kept talking but I couldn’t hear anything else out of his mouth, I just saw my cherished rings and immediately started sobbing and with much gratitude, I gave Steve the biggest hug. He was truly our Angel that night. My husband and I are very thankful beyond words for all the effort that Steve put in to find something that is invaluable to us. If you or a loved one has lost a ring or another item that a metal detector can locate, Steve is your man!
