Rob was cleaning out his gutters and slung his ring off into the back yard. He purchased a metal detector and tried to find the ring, without success. Locating TheRingFinders on line, he called us for help. We set up to hunt the next day. Carrie and I had a 20’ x 20’ area to hunt. Easy-peasy. Ten minutes and we reunited Rob with his wedding band. Thank you Rob for the generous reward.
Lost Wedding Rings in Maurice, LA. – Found
Sid got a call from Shane the day after his wife lost her engagement ring and wedding band (soldered together) in his Dad’s back yard. They were having a party and the couple were active at the party and around the subdivision. They had made many trips around and off the property on a golf cart. I went early the next morning and started in the back yard off the porch, the party’s main location. On my second pass, I got a shallow, gold signal and found the ring ½” below ground level. Total search time, 15 minutes. Another smiling face. Dad got the picture since Shane needed to be at work. Thank you Randy and Shane for the generous reward. This helps keep these search services available.
P.S. Received an email from Shane’s Mom later in the day. She is a good friend from the past. Made the find even sweeter.
Sid got a call from Yvette two days after her husband lost his platinum wedding band in their back yard. He was shaking pool water off his hands when more than water flew off. The search area was small but the ring could not be located by their visual search nor with a borrowed detector. Sid and Carrie arrived at the search area the next day. Both detectors (Garrett Ace 350 and AT Pro) went wild with interference. Not from power lines, from underground wires in the search area. Down on our hands and knees with pin pointers. Sid hunted the holly bushes and found the ring under leaves at the base of those bushes. Total search time, 20 minutes. Another smiling face (actually, three smiling faces) and we were on our way home. Thank you Yvette for the generous reward. This helps keep these search services available.
Carrie and I received a call from Jan telling us she had lost an Australian Opal earring her husband had given to her on their first Christmas together, 34 years ago. Her daughter was to wear them for her upcoming wedding. Wedding pictures were taken at a plantation home in Houma, LA where the wedding is to take place. The bride removed the earrings and Jan placed them in her ears. She then left that location and went to 3 other locations before noticing one of them missing. They searched all possible locations during the week before contacting us.
Carrie and I arrived at the plantation home in a light drizzle to begin our search. The ground was soaked from recent heavy rains. Jan estimated her movements after placing the earrings in her ears. After flagging the search area, Carrie adjusted her Garrett ACE 350’s sensitivity and discrimination with the other earring, placing the item in a ziplock and varying the item’s position (post up, post sideways). Made the first sweep slowly with both of us pin pointing every hit. Halfway through the second pass we were both checking out separate hits 1 foot apart when Carrie found the missing earring under the short grass. Our search time was two hours.
It was such a pleasure to meet Jan and to see the beautiful smile on her face when she saw the earring! Thank you Jan for the generous reward.
