I was sitting at home relaxing when Tanya called. She told me how her husband was playing with their children when with a flick of the wrist his ring flew off, and was lost in the sand. Her husband Rob has been the fortunate benefactor of some recent weight loss, and had not had the opportunity to have his ring resized, so the ring came off easily. I let them know I was on my way.

I got to the beach in good time, as traffic was flowing well in my direction. Rob and Tanya saw me getting out of my vehicle, and waved. I got right over to the area, and listened as they explained what had happened. The area where they thought the loss occurred was quite small. I turned on the detector, swung a couple of times when I got a good strong signal, I scooped the sand, and there in the bottom of the scoop was Rob’s ring. A quick search for sure, but without the proper equipment, many times a futile one. Smiles all around this day!

I got a call from a concerned homeowner whose son had hammered a bunch of nails into the ground from his little carpenter set. Apparently another child had been injured by one of the nails the previous day, and he wanted to try and make sure that all of the nails were removed from the grass before someone else got hurt. I came right over at our arranged time.

When I got to the house I was shown the yard, and the nails I was to be looking for, and began searching for them. To the homeowner’s surprise, I was also finding a lot of old rusted nails and screws as well. The yard wasn’t very big, but I found quite a lot of the dangerous items, all on the surface. He was very happy to know that the yard was going to be a safer place for his child to play.

I received a text from Dustin about his lost wedding ring wondering if I would be available to do a search for him. He had been out on a Los Angeles mountain trail, with his child, when they found a tree swing. Dustin said he believed that the ring was lost while he was pushing his child on the swing which sounded very logical to me, because it is something that you do out of the ordinary that usually causes the ring to come off the finger. We arranged to meet the next day for the search.

When I got to the trailhead Dustin was waiting for me. I got my equipment together, and we walked up the trail. When we arrived at the tree swing there were a lot of trees in the area, as well as weeds surrounding the swing. When I began I started by searching the weeds on the perimeter, and worked my way in, in a circular pattern towards the center where the swing was. There were some items in the area that I was finding such as bottle caps, and pull tabs that slowed the process a bit, but I kept to the plan. it was after about 3 times around, Ii got a great repeating signal, put my pin pointer in, and found Dustin’s ring. He was very excited to have it back, as I was to be the one to give it back to him; it made for a great day!

I received a contact from Linda about a lost ring in the sand at the beach. Her husband had given her his ring to hold when he went down to the water, and while he was gone, she flipped her hand, and the ring that she had placed on her finger went into the soft sand, and disappeared. I was free, and left immediately to do the search to make sure that it would be found.

When I got to the beach it was very windy, and I found Linda and her husband David on the berm that the county erects yearly to stop any possibility of flooding during the stormy Winter months. They had not left the area of the loss, so I knew that the search should be successful, it was just a matter of not being confined to a box search, but allowing for any possibility to have occurred. I began the search, and went over a shoe they had placed as a border, and got a signal. I moved the shoe, and dug, but came up empty. Thinking that maybe the shoe might have been the signal, I went out for one pass of the grid, and came back. I went over once more where the shoe had been, the signal came up again, I dug again, and there it was, David’s ring. The place where the ring was lost was small, so I was very certain it would be recovered. I then found out that they had only been married one month, so Linda must have been heart broken to have lost David’s ring. Well it was my pleasure to restore some joy in their lives that day!

I was contacted by Adam concerned about the loss of his father Jerry’s ring. This turned out to be a ring that Jerry’s wife had custom made for him over 50 years ago. This was a ring that had so much sentimental value that literally made it priceless. It had one large stone with tiny rubies surrounding it. Jerry had been out in his yard enjoying working in the garden, and when he was done his precious gift was gone. They had been looking for the ring for at least 5 days already. Adam and I arranged a search, set a time, and I was on my way.

When I arrived, Adam was working to get a detector ready for a search. We talked, and he took me around showing me where his father had been working in the garden, and I could see a whole bunch of loss possibilities. There was one area that he seemed to be more concerned with, so I began in that area. I searched the deep grass on the edge of the area first, no ring. I then went into the flower bed, and began using the pin pointer to work in and around the Lily of the Nile (Agapanthus) plants that were in that part of the yard. It was when I put the pin pointer into the middle of one of the plants that my device sounded off. I began to spread the leaves, and down in the middle of the plant, deep, and under some dead leaves the glimmer of gold caught my eye. I brought it over to Jerry’s son to show him, and he was so happy to see it again, and very happy for his father. When Jerry saw it again, he just couldn’t believe it, he was resigning himself to figure it was gone forever.  I think that without the pin pointer, the ring might never have been found due to where it was located. Jerry had been tossing plant food across the yard when his ring must have flown off, and went into the plant. I later found out that Jerry is a renown singer song writer with such classic hits to his name as Travelin’ Man (Ricky Nelson), and Young Girl (Gary Puckett and The Union Gap). I was so happy to be able to reunite Jerry and his ring.

I received a call from Beth asking for help in finding her lost ring. She had been at the beach the day before, and made sure she wisely removed it, and put it in the zippered pocket of her bag where she also put her COVID mask. As she was getting ready to leave the beach, she removed her mask to put it on, and surmised that the ring came out with it, and was lost in the sand. I asked about the area, and she said that it was on the slope down to the water as opposed to being in the dry sand. It sounded like a good possibility of a recovery if it was out of the way of the county beach cleaning machines, and if another detector did not find it first. I told her I would leave as soon as possible to meet her there.

When I arrived Beth met me and took me to where she had been the day before. I realized it was high tide, and there was some good sized surf, so I went back to my vehicle to get my waders, to insure I could get out into the surf if needed. The sand was soft in the area she showed me, so I figured the ring would not have moved much laterally, but would have sunk with the movement of the water, which was a good thing. I made one pass close to the cut, then turned to make my second pass. I was about halfway into the second pass when I received my first signal, which was solid. I dug, and in the scoop was a small gold ring. I held the ring up to Beth’s disbelief. She came right over to check it out. She tried it on, it fit. Then she checked the inside for the inscription, yes it was there; this was her ring. Beth was very happy, and I was so glad to be a help for her!

As I was returning home from my key search in Zuma Beach, and driving through the beach cities, I received a call from Mark who had also lost his keys in the sand, fortunately the same day. This was the third recovery call this day, a ring, and two key searches, and I let him know I was on the way.

When I got to the beach, I found Mark, and he showed me what had happened. He had put his keys in the pocket of his beach chair, and when he left, folded it up walking away not realizing they had fallen out. He went back to find them, but they were lost in the sand. He had marked the spot with his flip flops in order to give me a beginning of the area to search, so that is where I began, right where his flip flops were. Right over his flip flops I received a good signal, and thought the flip flops had some metal in them as some do, so I moved them and scanned again; same signal. I dug and there they were. Mark had placed his flip flops unknowingly right on top of his keys, what a surprise. What a way to top off the day; great smile!

I received a desperation call from Hana. She had lost her Cartier gold and diamond bracelet in the sand at the beach. She had been shooting a video for her Social Media page when sometime during the shoot her bracelet came off and disappeared. She had left the beach before she knew it was gone, and was worried about getting to it right away. I agreed with her about doing the search as soon as possible, so I gathered what I needed, and was on my way.

When I got to the area I had a bit of a hard time finding the access point to get to where she was, and there was no cell phone coverage for my carrier, so I was not able to contact her. After studying the photos Hana sent me, and driving around, I finally was able to find the access point, and Hana was waiting for me. She took me down to where she was filming, and showed me the area. It was a rather long, but a narrow path that she had run down on the beach. She went to the furthest point and waited, as I set up for my search. I began, swung about 3 times, got a great solid gold signal in the head phones, and dug. I pulled out the sand and dumped it out. Right on top was Hana’s bracelet big and beautiful. I held it up for her, and I think it took a couple seconds for her to realize that I found it so quickly, but when she came back she reminded everyone that she suspected it had been lost in that area. It was great to be able to reunite Hana and her bracelet. Sometimes the loss of such an item can be disheartening, but all smiles this time.

Jennifer emailed me asking if I could help her in finding her husband’s wedding ring. She wasn’t sure about when (within the last couple of days) or where it was lost, but had the locations of a possible loss narrowed down to a few different areas. We arranged to do a search the next day.

I got to Jennifer’s house, and she came to show me the possible zones of where she and her husband thought the ring might have been lost. As she was showing me, I could see that they had the most luxurious grass with long leaves, and thick thatch which could easily hide a ring. She showed me an area of the front yard, and then took me into the backyard to show me where her husband does his daily work out in the same luxurious grass. I decided that the backyard site should be the first to search knowing that there was a lot of movement from the exercise that could dislodge a ring. I began, and after 2 passes, found the ring in about 5 minutes. I walked over to Jennifer to say that I felt I was working too hard, to which I received a short puzzled look, just long enough to then hold up her husband’s ring. She couldn’t believe it had been found in such a short time, I was fortunate to have chosen the right place to start the  search. She called her husband Alex to give him his ring, he was also surprised when I showed him where it had been lost. Two great smiles!

Steve called, he had lost his wedding ring the previous day at a heavily machine cleaned beach. It had been in the pocket of his pop up tent, and he forgot it when he wrapped everything up to head home. We talked, and it sounded like it may have been lost On the towel line, which reduces the possibility of a recovery. I let him know I would come and do the search for him because in the Winter, the County doesn’t always clean the beaches daily like they do in the Summer.

When I got there, I waited for Steve, and when he arrived, he took me over to where the possible loss occurred. The one thing that was instantly noticeable, was that the machines had not gone through that day which buoyed my hopes of a recovery. I began my grid working the outer edge of the area he showed me, working my way towards the other side, pass by pass. After about 5 passes, and 3 or 4 bottle caps, I got that signal I was waiting for, dug, and was rewarded with a nice chunky ring in the scoop. I held it up for Steve, and he immediately rejoiced. He had been married for 8 years, and this was the ring. What a happy day!

Steve sent the following testimonial:

Steve,

I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you again for the amazing find this afternoon.

I was fairly certain that all hope was lost and I was preparing for the worst, yet within minutes of meeting you, you had found my wedding ring! Simply amazing! Your willingness to take the time out of your day to drive down to the beach to help a total stranger is a true act of kindness. I am truly grateful.

I appreciate your time and efforts and hope to see you again sometime down on the water.

Best,
Steve
