I received a distressed email from Tommy the other day. He had lost a very special ring in the surf at the beach that he had been wearing for the past 23 years. He had won the ring at the Maryland DC White Marlin Open Tournament in 1997, a tournament that he had fished for most of his life, and to lose this precious reward was a major blow. The problem was that the ring was lost 3 days earlier, and I was already thinking that the possibility of a recovery was going to be slim to none. The best chance of a search was going to be the next morning, so that was going to be 4 days. I called Tommy and we discussed what had happened. There were details about the loss that were favorable, like the fact he lost it at high tide, which would have put me in a good position at low tide the next day. He was not able to meet me there for the search, but was able to give me a great landmark to use to do the search, so I let him know I would go, and let him know one way or the other if I was able to locate his ring.

I got to the area, and began my search at the top of the slope working North and South, and worked my way down to the water. There was so much sand, and I was not getting any signals although I was using one of my deepest detectors. I finally found one crusted penny. I reached the water’s edge, and donned my chest waders to search in the surf. I now worked East and West trying to maintain a close grid working down the beach. I was able to go out into the surf quite far because after going through a hole, there was a sand bar that raised back up, and was flat out to the breaking waves. I found another crusted penny out there, and ended up covering the whole area that I had searched up on the slope. Tommy had told me that if anything, he might have been more North of the landmark as opposed to South, so I moved up to continue searching in the Northern direction. I made a few passes from the top of the slope into the water, and while about 30 feet out in the water, out on the bar I got a good signal. I was able to scoop the target digging once, and after washing the sand from the scoop saw the ring I was hunting, I couldn’t believe it was still there, but seeing it made me very happy. I took a picture of the ring and sent a text to Tommy letting him know about the recovery, and he sent a me a text back, one of total disbelief. We arranged to meet when he got off of work, to return the ring. When we met, he told me how he had been in communication with the tournament to find out if the ring could be replaced, because he thought it was lost forever. I was very honored to be able to hand this precious memory back to him; made his day!

I received a call the other day in the morning from Frances. She and her family had been at the beach the day before when her husband went into the water, and his ring slid off of his hand into the foaming waves to disappear in an instant. I looked the tide chart, and realized I was just a couple hours short of high tide, so I asked if Frances could meet me at the beach so she would be able to show me where the loss occurred. She told me that was not going to be possible. I then asked more questions regarding the area, and asked if she could send some pictures showing the area as well. She did send me enough information, and I immediately got on the way for the search.

I know this area is detected unmercifully, and was hoping the ring had not already been found. When I arrived I spotted another detectorist at work in the area I was supposed to search, but after closer inspection, I surmised he was using a detector that was good for dry searching only, which provided some relief. I donned my waders, and headed off into the water, to search as deep as possible in order to ride the tide up as it rose. I knew I had to search as deep as possible first, and work my way up the slope. I found a few targets, many of them too small to be held by my 1/2 hole scoop, which caused me to dig more than I anticipated, but I marched on. I continued the search working up the slope grid line by grid line. I finally got near the top of the slope, got a solid signal, and scooped a heavy gold ring. After close inspection I was able to read the inscription Frances told me to look for. I then sent a text to her with a picture of the ring, and we arranged to meet back at the beach a while later to return the ring. She came with her husband Alan, and when he placed it back on his finger I could see why it had come off so easy, it was very loose. They were very happy to have back something they thought was probably lost forever. It is a pleasure to bring the joy back.

Frances sent the following testimonial:

Steve is truly an ANGEL!

My husband lost his wedding ring at Redondo Beach, CA. This happened when he was IN THE WATER! We were very very sad……we thought that it was swept away by the waves and that it was lost forever. But we still did not want to give up and that’s when we came across Steve’s information. We called him the next morning and he immediately took action! We were so impressed by his knowledge and professionalism. After an hour, he sent us a picture of my husband’s ring!!! AMAZING!!!! He is so kind, sweet and he really wants to help others. Thank you, Steve, you are truly and ANGEL!

Jack called last night stating he had been at the beach earlier in the day, and lost his wedding ring in the sand. He had been there with his dogs, and took his ring off to put on sunscreen. Leaving his ring on his towel, he had forgotten about it until after he had left for the day. He went back as soon as he knew it was gone, but was unable to find it. Finding my number on The Ring Finders site he called, and we arranged to meet back at the beach, so he could show me where he had been sitting to narrow down the search area. Calling right away helped insure a recovery, because TIME is the enemy of a successful search, so if you have lost something call right away.

When we arrived at the beach, we met up, and Jack took me down to the area of the loss. I then began my litany of questions in order to narrow down the search area. After finding out all the information I needed, I began my search, which after about 2 minutes, resulted in a successful search. The questions help us to help you, so I am thankful when the person I am trying to help is patient while I ask. Anyway, I got a good signal, scooped, and in my scoop was a gold ring, which I held up, and asked Jack if he recognized. He looked at it and was able to read an identifying inscription on the inside of the band. He was very happy as he and his wife were getting ready to celebrate their second wedding anniversary. A great night’s sleep was ahead for sure!

I awoke and found I had received an email from Leah. She had been at the beach the day before, when while in the water, she was struck by a wave, and knocked down. When she arose, she realized her ring was gone. Noticing the time the email was sent (12:17 AM), I could tell this was a distraught appeal for help. She told how this was her Grandmother’s wedding ring, a Grandmother I found out later, had passed away. This was a reminder of her Grandmother that she carried with her daily, so it turned out to be a great loss. Leah was not able to meet me at the beach to show me where to look, but had given some information in her email, and also sent me a Google Earth picture with an outline showing the loss area. I went at the earliest low tide that day.

I arrived at the beach, and began my search at one end of the area pictured, and began my grid. I continued my search, with very few targets, for about 1 1/2 hours, with no ring. I finished what I thought was the limit for that direction, and decided to go back to my starting point, and worked the other direction. I made about 4 new passes when that sweet sound came through the head phones, loud and clear. I dug, and in the pile on the edge of the sand was a nice glimmer of gold. I reached down, and picked it out, and it was Leah’s ring. I emailed her right away with excitement, and we arranged to meet the next day make the return. When we met, her mom was with her, and explained the importance the ring to Leah, and how devastated she was when it was lost. Leah was very happy when I gave it back, and her smile says it all!

Leah sent the following testimonial:

After I lost the ring, I just kept telling myself that it’s okay and it’s just a ring. But it kept bothering me and I felt so sad as if I lost someone. I lost the ring in the afternoon and I was still up and crying about it past midnight. I really couldn’t believe that I had just lost something so important me so fast. At one moment I was having fun with my friends splashing in the shallow waves (and making sure my ring was on and safe). The next minute later, I was trying to get up from being hit with a scary wave and then I realized my ring was gone.

I already felt much better after contacting Steve. Knowing that someone would still be searching for the ring, comforted me and I had hope! Once the ring was found, I literally felt “in balance” again. The ring was my late grandma’s and wearing it everyday for over three years now has always kept me tied to her. Having it back felt like I had a part of my grandma with me again.

Steve was incredibly kind when we met each other. His dedication and passion really meant a lot to me, he truly cares about his work!! I will always remember this story and Steve!

Thank you Steve!!!!
Leah

Lit Papi (Stage Name) called me last night explaining that he lost his girlfriend’s ring at the beach. I had just finished dinner, poured myself a cup of coffee, and let him know I would be on my way.

When I arrived Lit Papi met me and showed me where they had been sitting and explained what happened. The area was not large, so I knew this would be a quick search. I searched on the one side of the area, finding only a nickel. I then began in the other direction, when after one pass, I got a good signal, put in the scoop, which now had the ring inside. He was happy to be able to get his girlfriend’s ring back. They would both sleep well now, I was sure.

I got a call from Alessandra, she had lost her ring in the sand at the beach. She had been sitting on her towel when a bee landed on her, she began swatting at it to make it fly away, and got up to flee the ornery critter. After the commotion she looked to see that the ring she had been given for graduation was gone. She had not left the area, so I told her I would be right over to conduct the search.

When I got to the beach, I walked out to where she said she would be, and as soon as she saw me began to wave me over. She then proceeded to show me what had happened, and how she ran. She was very helpful with the information she provided. I began my search, and after about 5 passes, I had her ring back on her finger. She was too young to grant me permission to use her image here, so you get me this time, as she agreed to take my picture. It was a pleasure to make her day!

Ana contacted me after she had lost her ring in the water at the beach. She had gone into the water, when a wave hit her, knocked her down, and her ring came off only to disappear into the wet sand. It was a ring her father had given her, so it meant a lot to her. When she contacted me the tide was coming in, and the best search opportunity would be the next low tide, so we arranged to meet at the beach the next morning.

When we met at the beach, Ana walked me out to the area of the loss, and showed me what had happened. I then got my equipment, set up and began my search. I was going into the water to make sure I was able to do a thorough search. I made about 20 passes, finding little, but some nails, and a few coins, until I got a good solid signal, I scooped and pulled out a nice gold ring which I held up for Ana, who was very surprised to see it again. It was so great to restore her joy!

I was in a meeting when Patrick called me about a search for his wife’s wedding ring. They were out celebrating their 2nd wedding anniversary the day before, when with a flip of the wrist her ring flew off of her hand, and into the soft sand to disappear. After some futile searching they went home, I am sure thinking this token of their love was gone forever. The next day Patrick found my number on The Ring Finders web site, and gave me a call. I told him that I would be able to do the search in the evening because of the meeting. He was not going to be able to meet me there, but gave some pictures of where the loss occurred, as well as a picture of what the ring looked like, and I told him I would let know if I was able to find the ring.

I got to the beach, and because of the pictures Patrick provided, was able to find the exact area of the loss. I set up and began my search. I found a few pieces of trash metal like tin foil and bottle caps. On my 4th pass I got a good signal, and dug. In my scoop was a real nice gold and diamond ring, but when I looked closer, I realized it was different than the picture he had sent to me, so I continued to search the area looking for his wife’s ring. I finished the search, and then called Patrick to let him know what had happened. I let him know I had found a ring, but not like picture he had sent me. He told me that he had found a picture on the internet of what he thought the ring looked like, and would ask his wife if she had a picture, and would send it to me. When I received the picture I realized that I had found the right ring, and let him know we had success. We arranged to meet the next day for the return. It was nice meeting them and being able to give this meaningful item back to them, and see their joy.

I got a call from Francisco letting me know he had lost his car keys in the sand at the beach, and was hoping I could help. There was no way for him to get home, so I let him know that I would leave immediately to do a search for him.

When I got to the area we met, and Francisco and his girlfriend took me out to the spot they believed the keys to have been lost. I began my grid, and made quite a few passes with the finding of a lot of trash metal, but no keys. They then motioned me over to another area, thinking the keys might have been lost there. I began a new search, and during the first pass, got a solid signal, scooped the sand, and had his keys in my hand. I held them up for him to see, and he being so happy to have them back, came over and gave me a big hug. It was so nice to be able to help!

I got an emergency call from Alex last night; she had lost her car key in the beach sand. It was about 9:30 PM, and she had her children with her, and needed to be able to get home, so I let her know that I would be leaving for the search immediately.

When I got there they were waiting for me, and Alex took me out to where she believed the loss occurred. I began my search, and found numerous pieces of trash metal, and one house key, but not her car key. It was then that her children came down to beach, and showed us that we were searching about 60 feet off target. I went to where they showed me to search, and began another search. I worked it out one way with no key, and then worked out the other way, and after 2 passes, got a good shallow signal, scooped, and by 11:00 PM had her key.  Alex was very happy to be able get her children home. It was a great night!
