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!

Sentimental Earring Lost in Backyard in Glendale, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

Mary Ellen contacted me yesterday about an earring she lost in her backyard. She remembered walking down the walkway to her garage when one of the overhanging plants caught her earring and then it was gone. These were her mother’s earrings, so they held a special place in her heart. We talked a bit, I asked some pertinent questions, and we scheduled to meet this morning to search her garden area.

I got to her house, and she came out right away and took me back to the area of the loss. She then showed me how she had been walking on the walkway, and the plants that snagged her earring to pull it off. There was some thick ground cover, that could have swallowed up an earring in a second. I began my search, and fortunately found that there wasn’t a lot of metal in the ground, which I have found to be very uncommon over the years. I had a few good signals, but they were too deep for what I was looking for. I got another good signal, and while moving the groundcover around noticed the glint of gold. I pushed the greenery aside, and there was the lost earring. I walked it right over to Mary Ellen, and she seemed very relieved to have it back. This made her day, and made mine as well to see her smile!

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!

Later Monday night after I had found the ring at Hermosa Beach, Feliz called me about a ring she lost at Manhattan Beach. She had been there earlier in the day, and gone in the water, but before doing so, she wisely removed her ring and placed it in her jacket pocket. After coming out of the water, and forgetting that she had placed the ring in the jacket pocket, she moved things around, and left the beach. It wasn’t until a couple of hours later at the gym that she realized her ring was missing. Someone she knew had found The Ring Finders site on the internet, and told her about us, where she was able to contact me. She told me the ring had special meaning to her, and she would appreciated it I could help her find it. I said I would be there in 30-40 minutes.

When I got there we met, and Feliz took me down to the beach to show me where she had been. The problem was that it was a little after 8:00 PM, and in the darkness it was difficult for her to find any landmarks that could help her find exactly where she had been sitting, so she gave me a pretty good swath of beach to go over. I knew I would be finding quite a lot of things just because of so much sand to cover, and was hoping she would not get too discouraged with the search. As I anticipated I found a lot of bottle caps, foil, some coins, and other metal, but no ring. She looked at photos she had taken while she was at the beach earlier, and we were able to figure out approximately where she was sitting in regards to the towel line, so I expanded my search. For most of this time Feliz had been looking herself, and also coming over to see what I had found, but then she just went over and sat down. I have seen this level of discouragement set in on a long search, but I know from experience that until you have covered every base, the search is not over. I kept working out, away from the slope, when one more good signal. I scooped it up and there was the ring. I grabbed it and called out to Feliz. She jumped up and ran over. When she saw the ring, and identified it as the one she lost earlier, she immediately broke down with emotion. She explained that the ring was her father’s, a man she so adored, and he had passed from this life just one month ago; my heart broke. This ring was something of his that she would wear to allow her to be close to him, and to lose it…well, I just can’t put that into words. What a wonderful day Monday was, and some awesome smiles. So glad to have been able to help Feliz restore her joy.

Monday I received a call from Luis. He had lost his wedding ring at the beach. He and his wife Karla were walking back to the car, and were about to go up the steps to the pier when he asked for his ring that Karla had been holding for him. Playfully she tossed it, and it hit the railing of the steps, and went into the sand. I let them know I would be there right away.

When I got there I decided to bring my pin pointer (something I usually don’t use for beach ring hunts). I walked over to where the 2 of them were waiting, and they showed me the area, and I realized my detector might not work because the railings were large steel pipes which would throw off the detector. I fired the detector up trying to work in and out of the railings, too much metal. I turned the sensitivity down but still messing it up. I then told them it was time for “Plan B”. I pulled out the pin pointer, turned the sensitivity down to about half, and began to drag it through the sand in a tight grid. I continued until I reached the other side of the steps, and right under the other railing my pin pointer began to sound off. I reached in with my hand and recovered Luis’s ring. They were very happy, especially for the fact that they were going to be moving to Utah the next day. So happy to have saved the day for them!

I woke up this morning to an email from Lorena that had been sent in the early morning regarding her friend Diana’s lost iPhone. I emailed her back and asked her to call so we could discuss the loss. When she called I found out they had been out at the beach with friends late last night when one of them picked Diana up and began to spin around. Her phone was in her pocket, and the physical forces of the fast spin caused her phone to slide out and be launched into the sea of sand they were standing in. The phone probably flew like a Frisbee and knife edged itself into the sand because it was gone in an instant. They searched and searched in the darkness, but were unable to find it. I was worried it was in the area of the towel line and that the beach sifters might have gotten it in the early morning, but she let me know it was further back towards the parking lot which gave me hope for a successful recovery.

When I got to the beach and located the young ladies, they were definitely close to the parking lot, and there had been no beach cleaning there. We discussed what had happened, and she laid out the parameters of the search for me. I searched the area finding a lot of iron, bottle caps, and pull tabs, but no phone. As I was finishing up the area Diana came out to let me know they had been a little more towards the water as well, so I let her know I would continue my grid in that direction. I made about 4 more passes finding numerous metal targets, but not the phone. As I began the 5th pass I received a real good solid signal. I gingerly put the scoop in far behind the signal so as not to damage the phone if this was it, and lifted it out. There it was poking out from the dumped sand pile. I looked up and saw Diana and Lorena talking, they had not noticed that I found the phone, so I picked it up and put it in my finds bag and walked over to them. I asked Diana if I should expand the search out further, and when she turned to her friend I pulled the phone out and asked if it looked familiar, she then jumped to her feet in total surprise and joy. Phones can be a person’s lifeline these days, and to loose one can be traumatic experience. To be able to give Diana her phone back was a special experience today; smiles all around!

My wife woke me early this morning; my phone was ringing. I did not get to it in time to answer, but waited to see if the person calling would leave a message, he did. It was Matt, who had lost his ring at the beach the night before. I called him back immediately and we talked a bit, and from what he explained to me I thought his ring may be gone for good. The beach is one of the cleanest beaches in Southern California because the County cleans it daily with sifting machines that pick up virtually everything. I let him know that if he would meet me there in 30 minutes, that I would leave right away in order to try and beat the machines.

When I got there, I could see Matt out in the sand doing what I have termed, “the lost ring shuffle”, where someone is trying to find their ring by dragging their feet through the sand in grid lines. When I got out to him, I could see where the sifter had taken a swing very close to his grid lines, and also out on the towel line closer to the slope. He explained to me that he believed the sifter had gone outside the possible loss area. I set up to grid, turned my machine on, took one swing, got a good signal, put the scoop in and dumped the sand, and there peeking out was the ring. I reached down, grabbed it, and held it out to Matt, who was in total disbelief. He had told me that the night before he gave the ring to his wife to hold while he went to the water with their child. While he was gone his wife was dealing with their beach equipment when the ring fell off her finger, and was gone in the sand. She had a hard night, feeling guilty for the loss, but today all joy is restored. What a great morning. I then went home and had my breakfast and coffee.

Friday afternoon I received a call from Madison. She had lost her ring at the beach earlier, and after a relentless effort to find it by her and her family, she got on the internet and found The Ring Finders where she got my name and number. She asked if would be able to help, and I let her know that I was on my way and would be there as soon as I could get there.

When I got to the beach and walked out, Madison met me and walked me over to the suspected area of the loss. I could see an area about 8 foot in diameter that had been scooped out and surrounded by a berm about 8 inches high; this where they had searched for the ring. She explained that her mother had given the ring to her 3 years earlier, and that it meant a whole lot to her. Her father told me that she had been tearfully distraught since she knew the ring was missing. They explained that Madison had taken it off and put it into a hat so as not to lose it, but not remembering, later in the day shook out the hat, and the ring was gone. They were on vacation from London, UK, and Madison thought it was lost forever. I got right to work, and after 3 passes in the grid, I received a solid signal in the berm on the edge of the scooped out area. I scooped out at least 3 times, where they had unknowingly buried it much deeper than it had already sunk into the sand. I finally had the ring in the scoop, pulled it out to show Madison who was overcome with joy, I mean LOOK AT THAT SMILE! It was so awesome to bring her joy back!

I woke up this morning with an email from Justin who had lost his smart phone at the beach the day before, and was wondering what he could do to try to locate it. I immediately called his number which went to voice mail, then replied to his email asking him to call, so we could discuss the loss. When he called he told me he thought about renting a metal detector which I discouraged, because rental agencies usually rent out the cheapest detectors, and that would just cause a lot of frustration for someone unfamiliar with a detector. Knowing the beach and that the County is usually real good about grooming the beaches with sifting machines, I told him I would meet him at the spot as soon as I could get there to help him in the search.

When I got to the beach, I could see Justin out in the sand dragging his feet in a grid like manor. I walked out and we met. I began asking what had happened, and he told me that what he usually does is put his phone in the sand under his towel so no one would find it and take it while he went in the water. The problem this time was that when he was about to leave, he grabbed his towel and left for the car forgetting he had placed his phone in the sand. He ended up coming back to the beach and searching in the sand about 10:00 PM, but was unable to locate landmarks in the darkness and identify the spot he had been in earlier. I began my grid working my way from the outer most spot towards the other end of his parameters. I found a number of tent stakes and bottle caps, but no phone. I then passed the half way point in the search when I received a good signal, I carefully inserted my scoop behind the signal so as to not damage the phone. When I pulled out the scoop, there was the phone, but I noticed the screen was damaged, and thought I might have missed somehow. When I picked it up to show Justin, I asked if the damage had already been there, and he reassuringly told me it had been. He then went on to explain that this phone had traveled the world with him as he backpacked in many different countries and was full of the pictures of those experiences. Now how do you replace that? Made his day, and that’s what it is all about!

Justin sent the following testimonial:

“I forgot to dig my phone out of the sand underneath my towel after I was done body boarding one late afternoon. I’ve been hiding my phone underneath my towel ever since I started body boarding and such but I guess I got unlucky and forgot to dig it out this time. I walked to my car and realized that I didn’t have my phone and then rushed back to the area where I set my stuff. Having forgotten where I set my towel exactly, I probably spent a good hour or so combing the sands with my feet. I couldn’t find my phone although I recalled hiding it probably 2 inches under the surface of the sand. I went back later that night to try and find my device using Google’s find my android system. Still didn’t find it. I found Steve online and emailed him that same night and got an email back early the following morning. I called Steve and explained my situation and he offered to drive an hour down to the beach to help me out. The phone was still there according to Find My Device. I drove down to the spot and marked an estimate boundary in which I was certain the phone would be within. Steve greeted me and went to work right away. Using a grid system in the boundary I laid out, he found my phone after finding a lot of metal pins and bottle caps. It probably took around 30- 45ish minutes. It turns out I was combing the right area the night and afternoon the day before but I set my stuff a lot closer to the shore. Steve advised that I dry out my phone first since it looked like the waters came in over it, but fortunately the phone is water proof.

I’m really glad I contacted Steve in time as I had planned to find metal- detecting equipment myself and search for my phone. Steve explained why that was a bad idea when I called him that morning and you could observe for yourself why it was so just by watching Steve work. I also want to mention that Steve didn’t hesitate to offer his help on an early Thursday morning, just shortly before a doctor’s appointment! I had a lot of cool pictures and memories stored on that phone from my travels as well as important notes and documents for school and work. Not everything was backed up into the cloud so I was pretty upset at the thought that I would lose the fun memories I captured with my phone. Thanks a million, Steve!!!”
