I got a call last week from a gentleman who was on vacation from Switzerland with a friend, and staying with a another friend a the beach. It seems as though they were out at the beach sitting watching the waves, that the key their friend had given them to enter the house was lost in the sand, and they were unable to find it after about 2 hours of searching. I told them I would be able to be there in about 30 minutes, and was on my way.

When I got to the beach I found them waiting at beach bar, and they took me out to the area of the loss. They showed me where they had been sitting, so I began my search. It took me about 3 passes, and then I got the sound I was wanting to hear. I put the scoop in and had the key. The guys were very happy to have it back, wanting to not feel as they let their friend down by losing his key. Some thankful guys for sure.

Wedding Ring Lost on Santa Monica Pier on Day of Couple’s 2nd Wedding Anniversary…Found Joyfully Returned.

I received a call from Souja, she had lost her wedding ring on the Santa Monica pier. She and her husband Martin are from Austria, and were in Southern California celebrating their 2nd wedding anniversary, and this was the exact day. Needless to say she was very unhappy about the loss. They were scheduled to leave the next day for Northern California for the rest of their vacation and then home. They could not imagine leaving with out her ring; they had matching rings. I let them know when I would be there, and was on my way.

When I got there Souja and Martin with their little one, met me and showed me what had happened. They had been at a food vendor on the pier when her ring slipped off of her finger. She said she watched it drop, and heard it hit the pier, but it was gone in an instant. They looked all over the pier with no success, and then surmised that it possibly slipped through the boards into the sand below, so they went below and searched some more. Martin went up and dropped some coins through the boards of the pier to see if he could find them, and was able to, but not Souja’s ring. They searched for a total of about 3 hours. They found me on The Ring Finders site and called, pretty discouraged by now. I agreed that the possibility of it having gone into the sand was better than it being up on the pier, so I began the search under the pier. I began my grid, and found a dime, a penny and a piece of trash. I was on my second pass, when I got the tone I was looking for, I dug, and in my scoop was Souja’s wedding ring. I reached in and held it out for her; they were so surprised. The pleasure of being able to help people with their lost items has not diminished a little; check out those smiles. What a great day!

I received a call from Virginia today, New Years Eve Day, She had lost her ring set of 36 years in her back yard, and was unable to find them after much looking. After asking a few questions about the loss, and knowing it was a recent loss, I let her know I would be there in about an hour.

When I got to her house, Virginia and her husband met me and took me to the area where she believed she lost the rings. It was a relatively small wood deck area with some wide sections between the boards. She had been dusting in the house, and came outside onto the deck to remove the dust off of the duster, and when she was done she saw that her rings were missing. Where could they have gone? The deck was completely surrounded by a wood lattice fencing, and she did not hear the rings fall; they had completely disappeared! The only thing she thought could have happened was that the rings fell through an opening in the wood deck, which sounded reasonable to me, so I got my equipment ready and squeezed under the deck for a search; nothing.  Well I have done this long enough to know that rings do things when they leave the hands they are on that sometimes defy logic. So I expanded my search outside of the lattice fencing with a flashlight looking down into more of the wood decking with no luck. I was about 15-20 feet from the original spot of loss when I looked under the ledge of their shed and saw this huge soldered ring set. The rings must have left Virginia’s finger at a perfect trajectory to make them go precisely through a 1 1/2 inch hole in the lattice fencing, and landing 20 feet away; amazing for sure. I brought them to her, and she was very happy; what a great way to finish off the year!

I got a call last night, Christmas night, from Charles who had lost his wedding ring at the beach earlier that day. He went to go surfing, and wisely took his ring off , and handed it to his wife for safekeeping (people lose a lot of rings in the water). She put the ring on her finger, but because it was much larger in size than her finger, somehow within the space of an hour it had slipped off and went into the soft sand to disappear. They had searched for it, and had not been able to find it, so they did a web search, and was able to find my site on the internet. I was visiting relatives, and had to get to my house to acquire my equipment, so I gave him an estimated time that I would be able to get to the area, and we arranged to meet.

Charles met me at the beach about 9:40 PM, and showed me the area his wife had been sitting. I began my search, and got one bottle cap, and one small piece of tin foil, happy to know that the beach was real clean of trash. About 2 grid passes more, and I had his ring in my scoop. So by about 10:00 PM Christmas night, he was wearing his wedding ring again. Charles was very happy, and told me that I had made his day. I knew that he and his wife would end this Christmas on a merrier note! Glad to have been a help.

Charles sent the following testimonial:

I gave my ring to my wife when going surfing in Malibu on Christmas Day, in the afternoon.
When asking her to give me back the ring, she realized she lost in in the sand as it slipped from her finger.
We searched in the sand for 30 minutes but were unable to find it. We finally drove back home later in the afternoon.
As searching on Internet for a solution, I ended up finding the Ringfinders website and emailing Steve. He answered super quickly and we met on the beach in Malibu around 9.30PM.
It only took him 10 minutes to find my ring. I was really happy with such a happy ending ! Thanks a million to Steve for this, a great, helpful and friendly professional.

Diamond Wedding Ring Lost in School Dumpster in Van Nuys, CA…Happily Found.

I received a call about 9:00 AM from Kathi, she lost her diamond wedding ring the day before, and was wondering if I could help. I asked her how it happened that the ring was lost, and she explained that she was at a school where she worked, and was toweling off her hands after washing them. She believed that the ring inadvertently came off in the paper towels, and were thrown away in the trash. I asked if the containers were still in their place, but she informed me that the janitorial staff had cleaned them all out and put all the trash in the dumpsters. It seemed as if it would be a “needle in the haystack” search, but I told her I would leave immediately.

When I got to the school, I saw that it was a very large one, which had many dumpsters. I then became disheartened. Kathi met me and took me to an office complex in one corner of the school where it was that she worked which had its own dumpster corral. When I looked, there were 4 dumpsters. Under closer inspection, one had green waste, one was empty, and one was just cardboard recyclables; that narrowed the search down to one dumpster which was overflowing with the exact same black plastic bags. I started pulling bags and looking in them for anything that might show it came from an inside container, as most of them had food in them, and looked as if they were from the outside cafeteria. I emptied about half of the dumpster and detected one bag, which was full of foil pull tops from milk containers, every one of them sounding like a gold or platinum ring. Kathi came over and I explained that we needed to try to look in each bag to see if there was something she recognized in order to speed the process, because I would be there all day going through each bag, so we began the looking. All of a sudden she recognized a pamphlet, so we took that bag and emptied it out on the ground, and I began my detecting. Many more foil pull tops, and then all of a sudden after getting a good signal and putting my pin pointer in, I moved a paper towel, and there was her beautiful diamond ring. Kathi had her back to me when I grabbed the ring, I picked it up and held it out to her when she turned, to her total surprise. She told me how her husband worked extra to save for this ring to give her for their 25th anniversary. Funny thing is she had not told him of the loss, she told me she didn’t have the heart to let him know after he had worked so hard for it. Then not 15 minutes after I found the ring as we were standing there talking, the trash truck came in and emptied the dumpster! I told Kathi that we “dodged a bullet” on this one; WOW! So happy to have made her day!

Aki called last night very concerned. Her wedding ring had been lost at her daughter’s school, in the sandy play area. I found out after arriving that her very young daughter had taken her ring with her to school to wear, and while she was in the play area, lost it while swinging her arm. I was close, and let Aki know that I would be there soon, and left.

I got to the school, and met Aki and her daughter. She took me over to the area where the ring had been lost. I then questioned the daughter to find out exactly had happened. She rehearsed what she did, and how the ring was lost, so I began my search. I searched all of the area that I was shown, and went over it a second time to make sure I had not missed anything, but found no ring. I then expanded my search further and further out. I went to the left side and then to the right, but no ring. There was a lot of iron in the ground that was making the search difficult. I expanded out further and did an extra one over to the expanded area. It was getting dark, and I had done the area pretty well until in between the iron I heard the good signal. I scooped up the sand and there in the bottom of the scoop was Aki’s ring. It was too dark for Aki to know I had found the ring, but I reached in and walked it over to her, holding it up so she could see it when it was within eyesight. As soon as she saw the ring she brandished a big smile, but then was overcome with emotion, she was so happy. To give so much happiness and relief to someone is such a pleasure!

Brad called the other day about his lost ring. He, his wife and some friends were at the beach throwing a football around. When it was thrown to him, he reached out to catch it, and the ball hit his hand and his ring went flying. They searched for quite sometime before calling, but I was able to leave right away to get there to perform the search.

When I arrived, I found Brad, and we talked about what had happened. He showed me the area, the way he was standing, and the direction the ball had hit his hand. Looking over the sand I could tell there had been a lot of digging for the ring. I began my search, not hearing any signals (this beach is sifted daily by the county, and very clean), but continued my grid. Finally on my second pass, I got a signal, and in the scoop was Brad’s ring. I reached in and then held it up for him to see, as he came running over with his wife. She looked at me and with a glint in her eye said, “it was a good thing you found the ring, I was getting ready to file an annulment”, and then laughed. I found out they had only been married 2 months, so this loss would have meant a lot to them. So happy to have made their day!

Austin called a couple of days ago asking for help in finding his ring. He had been at the beach, and wanted to go in the water, which is what he did. He came out of the water and as he walked back to his belongings he started shaking his hands to remove the water as he walked along. When he got back to his towel, he realized his ring was gone. He did remember it being on his finger when he came out of the water, but now it was gone. I happened to be coming back from my son’s college and asked if he would be able to wait for me to get home and get my equipment, and he said he could. I then said I would be there as soon as possible and let him know when I arrived.

When we finally met up, Austin took me over to where he had been, and where he believed he had shaken his ring off of his hand. I then began a close grid making sure I covered every inch. I found numerous  pieces of metal, bottle caps, foil, and some coins, but no ring, so I expanded my search area. Austin continued to show me where he might have been as my search area expanded. I started to work more towards the water, and he kept saying he believed the ring to have come off in the other direction, but I asked if he would just allow me to search a little more in the direction I was going, I would go in the other direction after. As he was looking over on the other side of the search area, I got a good signal, dug and had his ring in my scoop. I then called him over to ask him again about where he might have been when the ring came off, and as he started explaining again, I held up his ring. He looked over and saw it, and did a double take; he could not believe it was found, and that it was all the way over where I had found it. I let him know that we sometimes have to go “out of the box” sometimes to find what people thought was lost forever. This ring is very special to him, his wife has a matching one. So glad to have made his day!

I got a call from Axtlan’s mother. It seems he had been working out at the old Muscle Beach, climbing the ropes, and working on some of the other equipment, and lost his car key in the sand. It hadn’t been too long, and I wasn’t very far from there, so I told her I would come right away.

When I got there they showed me the 3 possible areas the loss could have occurred, and I got to work. I searched the first one, and no key. I then went to the second one, no key. Finally I searched the third spot, no key. I told them I would expand the search, but also asked if they had checked the nearby snack stand to see if someone might have found it and turned it in, and they hadn’t. I encouraged them to do so, and they seemed a bit apprehensive, I guess feeling the key would not have been turned over, and because it was a little out of the way, but I pressed the issue, letting them know that I would expand my search of the key in the mean time. Axtlan decided to walk over to check, and on his way over, he found the key sitting on top of a bench. Someone had found the key and placed it there hoping the owner would find it. Axtlan and his mother told me he would not have walked that way if I had not pressed the issue, and needless to say were very happy with the outcome. Always glad to help!
