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!

Smart Phone Lost at Huntington Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

I woke up this morning with an email from Justin who had lost his smart phone at the beach the day before, and was wondering what he could do to try to locate it. I immediately called his number which went to voice mail, then replied to his email asking him to call, so we could discuss the loss. When he called he told me he thought about renting a metal detector which I discouraged, because rental agencies usually rent out the cheapest detectors, and that would just cause a lot of frustration for someone unfamiliar with a detector. Knowing the beach and that the County is usually real good about grooming the beaches with sifting machines, I told him I would meet him at the spot as soon as I could get there to help him in the search.

When I got to the beach, I could see Justin out in the sand dragging his feet in a grid like manor. I walked out and we met. I began asking what had happened, and he told me that what he usually does is put his phone in the sand under his towel so no one would find it and take it while he went in the water. The problem this time was that when he was about to leave, he grabbed his towel and left for the car forgetting he had placed his phone in the sand. He ended up coming back to the beach and searching in the sand about 10:00 PM, but was unable to locate landmarks in the darkness and identify the spot he had been in earlier. I began my grid working my way from the outer most spot towards the other end of his parameters. I found a number of tent stakes and bottle caps, but no phone. I then passed the half way point in the search when I received a good signal, I carefully inserted my scoop behind the signal so as to not damage the phone. When I pulled out the scoop, there was the phone, but I noticed the screen was damaged, and thought I might have missed somehow. When I picked it up to show Justin, I asked if the damage had already been there, and he reassuringly told me it had been. He then went on to explain that this phone had traveled the world with him as he backpacked in many different countries and was full of the pictures of those experiences. Now how do you replace that? Made his day, and that’s what it is all about!

Justin sent the following testimonial:

“I forgot to dig my phone out of the sand underneath my towel after I was done body boarding one late afternoon. I’ve been hiding my phone underneath my towel ever since I started body boarding and such but I guess I got unlucky and forgot to dig it out this time. I walked to my car and realized that I didn’t have my phone and then rushed back to the area where I set my stuff. Having forgotten where I set my towel exactly, I probably spent a good hour or so combing the sands with my feet. I couldn’t find my phone although I recalled hiding it probably 2 inches under the surface of the sand. I went back later that night to try and find my device using Google’s find my android system. Still didn’t find it. I found Steve online and emailed him that same night and got an email back early the following morning. I called Steve and explained my situation and he offered to drive an hour down to the beach to help me out. The phone was still there according to Find My Device. I drove down to the spot and marked an estimate boundary in which I was certain the phone would be within. Steve greeted me and went to work right away. Using a grid system in the boundary I laid out, he found my phone after finding a lot of metal pins and bottle caps. It probably took around 30- 45ish minutes. It turns out I was combing the right area the night and afternoon the day before but I set my stuff a lot closer to the shore. Steve advised that I dry out my phone first since it looked like the waters came in over it, but fortunately the phone is water proof.

I’m really glad I contacted Steve in time as I had planned to find metal- detecting equipment myself and search for my phone. Steve explained why that was a bad idea when I called him that morning and you could observe for yourself why it was so just by watching Steve work. I also want to mention that Steve didn’t hesitate to offer his help on an early Thursday morning, just shortly before a doctor’s appointment! I had a lot of cool pictures and memories stored on that phone from my travels as well as important notes and documents for school and work. Not everything was backed up into the cloud so I was pretty upset at the thought that I would lose the fun memories I captured with my phone. Thanks a million, Steve!!!”

I got a call this afternoon from a pretty distraught young lady. Taylor explained how she was at the beach with friends, took her engagement ring off and inserted it into her bathing suit top. She then moved around their position where the towels were, and then went down to the water. When she got back to lay down she realized the ring was gone, and began to freak out. I said to secure the area where they were laying in order to not let anyone lay their towels over the possible area of the loss, and told her I would be on my way in order to make sure I was the first detector to hit the area.

When I got there Taylor met me and took me to the dry sand area where she thought the ring might have fallen out of her bathing suit at first. I worked a tight slow grid, and came up with only 3 quarters and a few bottle caps, no ring. She showed me the path she took to the water, and I searched that whole area as well, no ring. I then took off my shoes, and prepared to search the wet sand into the water. There was another detectorist in the wet sand, and I was a bit worried he had already scanned the area I was going to search. Taylor’s fiancé James then told me that when the loss occurred it had been high tide, so I started my search from the high tide line and down. I made about 5 passes in my grid when I got a nice foil sound about 4 inches down. I scooped the sand, and when I dumped it, the round bottom side of Taylor’s ring was showing. Her fiancé saw it at the same time as I did. I brought it up with my scoop, retrieved the ring, a beautiful diamond halo ring with a pear shaped center stone, and handed it to James who then took it to Taylor and placed it back on her finger. Needless to say her joy was fully restored, and there were smiles all around. A great time was had by all!

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.

I was contacted Saturday evening by Sue who had lost her earring at the park earlier in the day. She told me how her young boy had been overly energetic, and while fussing, hit her ear and caused the earring to dislodge and fall into the wood chips that made up the base of the playground. She said that she had searched as long as she could, but with the yellow gold and the color of the wood chips being so similar, it seemed an impossible task. She also told me how much these fine pieces of jewelry meant to her. She had just gotten her first paycheck from her first job after graduating college 20 years prior, and these earrings were one of the first things she purchased as a reward for her hard work. When Sue contacted me, I was getting dinner for my wife and I, so I let her know that if she gave me the information about the loss and directions to the park, I would meet her there to do a search after dinner. She told me that she was unable to go, but gave me the information anyway. I ate dinner, and left for the search.

When I got to the park it was already dark, so I got my headlight. I went over the pictures she had sent, and began my search. I searched all of the area that I saw in the pictures with no luck. Now an earring can be a very difficult item to search for because of the limited amount of metal, but with my detector I should have heard this one (A rental detector would not have found it). I went over the area again, pulled out the wood chips from under the play equipment, and searched all of that with no luck. I then went around the whole piece of equipment thinking it may have been knocked loose but fallen off somewhere else; no luck. I also searched a grassy area she had mentioned as a possibility, no luck there also. So I called her again, and went over the photographs she had sent, when with her help, I realized, I had misinterpreted the picture, and was conducting my search in the wrong place. It did not take more than 10 to 15 minutes to find both the earring and the back for it. I sent her a picture of her earring, and she called me back very excited.

Sue and I arranged to meet the next day, so I could return her symbol of hard work and precious memories. When she came over to me, and I held out her earring I could see a wave of emotion sweep over her. She was so very happy to have her earring back, and I was so very happy to see her joy restored. What a great end to a day!

Sue sent the following to include in this post:

Hello, Steve – thank you again for being an instrument in finding my earring. Here is the short story which I shared on my Facebook:

An inspirational story to share on a Sunday…

On Saturday afternoon at my friend’s birthday party for her daughter, everyone including my son had a great time. We were at a park in Pasadena. It was perfect weather and my son was a powerhouse – non-stop on the slide, running around with no fear and 200% energy! He was having a wonderful time. But he kept coming back to the big slide which scared me because it was way too high, and he wanted to walk down, instead of sliding down! So when he tried to go the big slide again, I scooped him up and he struggled, hitting my face and neck. He hit my right ear so hard that the earring on my right ear flew out.

We looked for the earring for over an hour. But the play area had these chipped wood pieces as flooring. It was impossible to find. As my friend said, it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack! Someone said, “Get a metal detector.” And I thought, where am I gonna find a metal detector? We left the party and I had a sinking feeling. I didn’t want to leave half of my earring in a place I may never come back to. That earring’s been with me for 20 years! But we had to go home. My son, was getting cranky and I didn’t want to drive on the freeway at night.

On the drive home, I asked my cousin to look up metal detectors for rent online. She found theringfinders.com. I called The Ring Finders (Steve Smith) immediately, he asked for pictures of the lost earring, the exact area where I lost it, and I texted him the photos. He said he would drop by the park after dinner. At 8:50pm, Steve the ringfinder called my cell asking for more specifics. He was at the park, already looking for the earring with his metal detectors, but couldn’t find it. I requested for him to look at one side of the play area near the benches. 15 minutes later, he texts me, “Found it!” And sent me a photo of my earring. He found the pearl earring and the back of the earring! I am so relieved! It felt like a scene out of a movie but this is real life. I bought these earrings with my first paycheck after college. It’s not about the $, but more of the sentiment. I wear them everyday, and these have been with me through my ups and downs.

Today – 3pm on a Sunday – my husband and I met Steve. He immediately gave me my earring and I hugged him so tight. Steve is a genuinely kind person, who was just happy to help. I had tears in my eyes upon seeing him and my earring. I remembered all the memories I have with this earring: coming to America wearing these pearls, building a family, and finding a career. Steve is a God-send, and I will never forget his kindness. It was a leap of faith to make that first call to The Ring Finders. I didn’t hesitate because I knew they can help me. Steve said their joy is in giving back what they found. And I’m glad their group exists to bring back smiles without expecting a whole lot in return. Thank you, Steve and TheRingFinders. Thank you so much. I call this #MyPersonalMiracle.

-Sue

Keys Lost in the Water at Hermosa Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

After finding the engagement ring yesterday, I headed to Hermosa Beach for a scheduled search. I had been contacted by Bob who had lost his “large” set of keys at 2 o’clock Saturday morning while playing around in ankle deep water. He had them in his pocket while he and his friends were running around having a good time. When Bob checked for his keys (many important keys for sure), they were gone. He found me on The Ring Finders web site, and gave me a call. He was not able to be there for the search, but I let him know I would go if he gave me the area he had been in. I then scheduled my search.

I got to the spot at the right tide to allow me to get as far down the slope as possible. I had my waders on, and proceeded into the water to get out as far as I thought would be prudent for a search. I made one pass, and then on the second pass just where the waves were flowing over the sand, I received a strong multi ID signal. I was hopeful because Bob told me there were a lot keys. I had to dig down at least 12 inches, and out came Bob’s keys. I got really excited to have found them. They had gone down a lot in 3 days, but fortunately were within range of my detector. When I saw them I could tell there were some very important keys there including 2 car keys. I called Bob to let him know I found them, and he was amazed, he really did not expect to ever see them again. We arranged to meet today, and I brought his keys to him, and made him very happy. Yesterday was surely a great day for recoveries!

Religious Medal and 24K Gold Chain Lost at Venice Beach, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

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!

Heirloom Diamond Earring Lost in Grass in Long Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I had gone surfing today, and when I got back to the car after my session, I found that I had received a call and had a message of an earring loss from Stan. I called him back to see if he still needed my help. He said he did. We discussed the loss, and he explained that his girlfriend had been out walking the dog, and reached up over her head to grab a branch with the hand that held the leash, when the dog tried to chase something. When that happened the leash brushed her ear, and knocked off her earring. I let Stan know that I had to get home first to drop off my surfing equipment, get my recovery equipment, and then I would head over for the search. He said that would be fine, and I told him I would let him know when I was on my way.

When I got to the area, I met Stan’s girlfriend Rennie. I grabbed my equipment, and Rennie and I walked to the area of the loss. She showed me what she had done and explained what the dog had done to cause the earring to come off. She also told me how they had searched the area, and Stan told me he had as well on hands and knees. The grass had a pretty good thatch and was pretty thick. The earring was white gold, which tends to be hard to find in grassy areas because it reflects the surrounding material which provides a sort of camouflage. We took her remaining earring, put it in a small Ziplock bag, and put it down to make sure the detector I brought would hear it. My detector sounded at about 3 inches, so I knew it would find it. I then had to adjust the pin pointer to almost max sensitivity, and then was ready for the search. I made a pass, checking every faint sound, to insure that I did not overlook anything. I made one pass with nothing. I then turned to make the second pass. I got a too strong signal, but checked it anyway, nothing. I swung just to the left of that signal, and got one that was more like the one I received when checking the remaining earring. I put my pin pointer in, and got the signal. I saw the earring, it had flipped so that the diamonds were facing down, which would have not allowed the earring to glimmer, and help in its recovery by those who had looked before. When I reached in and held it out for Rennie, she got so excited she gave me a big hug. Later she told me how her grandmother had given her earrings when she was 16 years old, and how she then gave them to a family member later. She said that in 6 months they had been lost. she took it hard, and went to a jeweler, and had a new pair, this pair made to the exact specifications as the old ones, so there was a whole history involved that made this recovery very special. What a pleasure it is to make the smiles come back to those I am able to help.

Diamond wedding Ring Lost in Grass in Long Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

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

I got a call from Jay this morning asking for help in finding his wife’s wedding ring. He had been at a place of business the night before, holding his wife’s ring in his pocket. When he reached in to get his keys, the action inadvertently pulled the ring out also. It was at night which made the search very difficult, but they did look very long and hard for it. They could not find it, so he came back this morning, and spent about 3 more hours looking, but to no avail. we agreed to meet at the spot of loss later in the afternoon.

I got there a little before Jay, and could see deep grass, so I could understand where their search would have been difficult, but it also gave me some relief, to know that it would not have been seen by a casual passerby, and taken. It was also white gold, which can be a little hard to see in grass because its mirror finish reflects the grass, making it look like grass itself. Well Jay showed me the area he believed the loss to have occurred, and I began my search. I worked through the area finding a few deep targets, but no ring. At each target I would let Jay know if it wasn’t the sound I was looking for or not. I then went to a different mode on the detector to make sure there was nothing being missed, still no ring. I then noticed Jay looking in the grass over in an area he had not pointed out, so I figured he must have been mulling over what had happened, and realizing that he may have been in an area different than what he originally thought. I started searching the new area, and had a target that was near the surface, but I thought too deep. I dug the target, but it turned out to be a small piece of construction material. I walked a few more steps, and got another deep target. One more sweep, and then got the shallow tone I was looking for, I looked up at Jay and said, “Now this one sounds good”. I pulled out the pin pointer, put it in the grass, and there was his wife’s ring. When he saw it he just could not believe it. He told me that they had just got married in April, so this loss meant a whole bunch to them. What a pleasure to bring the joy back to couples, especially newlyweds.

I was checking my phone earlier today, the 4th of July, and saw that I had received an email from Geoff who explained how he had lost his wedding ring yesterday while playing with his daughter in the surf at the beach in the early evening. I could tell there was an air of desperation in his email, because it was lost yesterday, and also in the surf, he wasn’t sure it could be found. I called him to find out more about the loss. When he told me about the loss, and where he was, as well as the tide at the time of the loss, I was hopeful for a recovery. I told him I would be there as soon as I could get there, the timing was right as it would be low tide in about 2 hours.

I was amazed that I was able to find parking close to the area of the loss on this holiday. I met Geoff and his family at the strand, and we headed out to the area of the loss. Geoff explained how he had paced off the area the previous day, which took us to where he remembered the loss taking place. He also explained how he and his wife had come back at 1:30 AM in order to search at the low tide hoping the ring would be visible. It must have been tough and discouraging to be at the beach at such an early time with only flashlights looking for something that would have already sunk down probably 6 inches. I started to search, setting a grid on the slope to the water. I worked one way with no luck, so I went to work on the other side. I was working the sand right where the water was coming over my feet when I received a signal, dug and found a penny. I kept looking in the same area, when I got a real good signal, dug down, and when I pulled the scoop out the ring was showing, so I reached down and brought it up to show Geoff. He couldn’t believe it, and I got hugs from both he and his wife. To see such joy is what this is all about. I told Geoff I was going home to start my Bar B Q. He thanked me for coming while I could have been grilling, when told him there was no way my ribs meant as much to me as his ring meant to him, and that it was my pleasure to help him.
