Dorsey called me about his lost ring. He had been at the beach with his daughter, and had taken it off in order not to lose it. He put it in a bag attached to the half tent he set up know it was safe. When they were ready to leave, not thinking about his ring, he lifted the tent and shook it to get the sand off of it, and the ring came out going into the sand. Not long after he realized what had happened, and searched for it not being able to find it. He had gone home when he called, but agreed to go back and meet me so he could show me where the incident had occurred.

We arrived at the beach about the same time, and Dorsey took me down where they had been sitting. It wasn’t a very big area, and we made sure we were maintaining a safe distance while the search commenced. The ring was there and it did not take long to find. No hugs or pats on the back, no special handshakes, but Dorsey was very thankful I was able to find his ring. Glad to be a help.

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!

Katy contacted me yesterday about a ring she lost the night before. It was her wedding ring. She had been shaking her hand in the driveway when both her wedding ring and engagement rings flew off of her finger into the grass next to the driveway. She and her husband searched for the rings, and were able to find the engagement ring, but not the wedding ring. I was finishing up breakfast, and let her know I would be there as soon as I got my equipment together, and hopped on the road. Katy was not going to be able to be there, but had a babysitter that I would be able to give her ring to when it was found.

When I got to the house I let the babysitter know that I was going to begin my search. Katy had sent me some pictures of the area along with some explanation of what had happened which helped to focus the search area. I began where she had marked the asphalt showing where she had been standing while shaking her hand, and worked out from there. From what she had told me I figured she had been facing the street, and shaking her hand out towards the grass, so I focused my search out in the yard, and into a planter that was in the middle of the yard. I then began to work out towards the street in the grass. The ring was not there, so I went back to the starting point and started working in the opposite direction back towards the fence line, when about 12 feet back I got a nice solid signal, and looked down to find the ring sitting on the surface, waiting for a lawnmower to come along and destroy it. Katy was not able to be there for the return, so I got in the photo instead. She did let me know how happy she was that the ring was found. I do enjoy reinstating smiles for people!

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.

Lost Wedding Ring Found in Grass after Being Destroyed by Lawnmower.. Brea,CA.

Shaun went for an early morning workout on some bars at the neighborhood totlot in Brea, CA. Before starting his exercise on the bars he took his shirt and wedding ring off. He wrapped his ring in his shirt, setting his shirt on the wood chips.  

When he finished his workout he picked up his shirt putting it on. He walked about back to his house less 10 minutes away. That was when he realized his ring was not on his finger. He knew that it had to be in the immediate area of where he picked up his shirt. Possibly it flew a few feet away when as he shook it off?

Shawn’s wife Mitzi had found me online and had called me within the first couple hours after the loss. I met the both of them at the park before noon. Walking to the location I could see the maintenance crew working the area but the were just mowing the lawn. The workout area does not get used often so we still had a chance that nobody had found it before we began our search.

This was the perfect search conditions. I set up my detector beginning to do a grid pattern. After thoroughly covering the possible hiding places in the wood chips and walking the asphalt play ground where the ring could have rolled quite a distance, the ring didn’t show up.

We walked back to the my car to get another detector. Walking across the grass we eyeballed what looked like the ring. It was Shaun’s ring that had been hit by the lawnmower. It was what you could call a bittersweet moment. We had the satisfaction of finding the ring but it was sad that the lawnmower had destroyed the stainless steel wedding band. I guess it better that not finding the ring. That ring could have been thrown into the grass cutting catch basket and we would have never known what happened to Shawn’s ring.

The ring was more than 40 ft. away from where Shawn had put picked up his shirt after working out. We think that the ring had stayed in his shirt till he tucked it into his pants as he walked home?

As I was searching for the lost earring for the photo shoot (from the previous blog post), Justin a member of the lighting crew came up to me and asked if could find his ring. Apparently while moving the equipment around his ring fell off his finger, but he wasn’t sure where. I let him know that as soon as I completed my search for the earring, I would do a search for his ring.

After I found the earring, I went to Justin to let him know that I was ready for the search. He saw that I had just spent about 2 1/2 hours looking for the earring, and said that it was ok, I did not have to do the search for his ring. I said no, I am here, I just need to know where to look. He then took me out to show where he had been working, and I could see a lot of disturbed sand that I should search. I looked in the area he thought was most likely with no luck. I then went lower on the beach towards the water where it looked the models had been working. I searched one spot, nothing. I then worked in the other spot, where I received a very strong silver tone in the head phones, dug, and had Justin’s ring. I walked over to him with my head down, and said, “you really didn’t think I should search anyway”, which he acknowledged as I held up his ring. He could not believe it, gave me a hug, and showed everyone of the crew that were there. It wasn’t until I was later speaking with Jacklynn, that I found out Justin’s girlfriend had given him that ring just 48 hours before; couldn’t leave that one behind! What a great day!

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.

Ryan contacted me the day after his wife had lost her late grandfather’s wedding ring at the beach. He told me what had happened, and that it had happened the night before when they were on their way to watch the Christmas light boat parade in Newport Beach Harbor. We arranged a time to meet, and I prepared my equipment for the search.

When I arrived Ryan was waiting, in fact he had been doing some more searching for the elusive ring. He explained what had happened. He and his wife had gone to see a house they had rented on the beach a while back, and then make their way over to the harbor to watch the boat parade. As they were walking through the beach sand his wife was fiddling with her ring, when all of a sudden it dropped into the sand. She stopped immediately, not wanting to lose the spot of the loss, so they could search exactly where it fell. They both pulled out their lights and began to comb through the sand with no luck. It then seemed hopeless, and they went on. This ring was her grandfather’s, her mother’s father, a man she had never met because he had passed before she was born, but had heard so much about him from her mother. Her mother gave her his wedding band so she could always have a memory of his part in her life. Obviously she was heartbroken.

Ryan could not be comforted, so into the early morning he searched on the web to find a way to recover the ring when he came upon the Ring Finders and found my contact information. Ryan remembered the exact spot of the loss, and had it narrowed down pretty tight. It took about 3 passes to locate the ring, and it was right under his finger search marks. It is sometimes very difficult to find a small item in sand because it almost acts as a fluid when you move it, and it continues to move the object around as the search is conducted. Anyway I pulled the ring out of the sand and was able to hand it back to a very joyful Ryan.

Ryan sent the following testimonial:

Steve is like a superhero! I’m so happy I didn’t give up and took to the web to find some help. Steve responded to my message first thing in the morning and was quick to make himself available that afternoon. He kept me updated on his status and was positive in all communications – a real comfort when you’re panicked. He arrived with a smile and was ready to roll.

That ring has been on a journey through the family for over 75 years and I’m glad it didn’t end that night on the beach.

Thank you, Steve, for being so generous with your time and being available so quickly. It’s a breath of fresh air to meet someone who uses their talents to help others for the right reason. You rock!

Thank again.

***  Will was surfing with his friends at Huntington Beach, California. He had placed his gold wedding ring in a pocket of his surfboard bag. While he was out in the surf, his friends moved his bag further back away from the incoming tide.

When Will returned he discovered his ring was missing from the bag. The dry sand made all but impossible to find the ring by dragging their fingers through the sand. Also the ring could have fallen out anywhere in approximately a 20×30 yard area.

Will contacted me and gave me an address that turned out to be incorrect. After a five mile detour we were able to meet at the right location. Then walking a few blocks down the beach, Will showed me where they had spent more than two hours looking for the ring. He also pointed across to the second location where the ring could be.

Luckily we started in the best place. I decided to start in the center and circle grid search to the outside. Good decision, because the first target was Will’s special gold wedding band in my sand scoop. Another happy guy who was grateful to have his ring back where it belongs. It did help that he was able to find me and he was able to get me in the general area before too much time had passed. It was a pleasure to help Will.

Casey called me asking for help to find her car keys lost in the sand at a back bay beach in Newport Beach, CA. She was certain that the loss happened while she took her dog for a walk on the beach. 

I asked her where she was located and it was less than a block away from where I live. I was actually 25 miles away on my way to do some detecting on another beach. It took me more than a half hour to meet Casey where the loss occurred. She had her wallet locked in the vehicle and needed to pickup her daughter from school in about 2 hours. 

It was difficult to guarantee that I could find the key in time for her to do her errands because she had walked quite a distance. Casey had help from security personal doing a visual search of the damp wet sand and paved walkways before I arrived with no success. I set up to search the dry sand areas where the single key could be hiding under the sand.

After finishing the scan in the dry sand with the metal detector the key did not show. Next option as to do another quick visual search. We went outside the area where Casey said walked and the key was found just laying on the wet sand and would have soon been covered by the incoming tide. Casey could not remember walking in that area. It’s common that people get confused and can’t remember especially when they have other pressing things to do. We eliminated the dry sand hiding places then did a double take on the places where they could be visually found.
