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!!!”

I received a call from Henry this morning about a pendant he lost yesterday at the beach. He had purchased this custom artwork pendant while on a trip to Italy, so it had significant meaning to him. The pendant had been on a chain around his neck while he was playing beach tennis. During the game, which is high energy and fast paced, the pendant came off of the chain and went into the fine sand. It wasn’t long before he noticed it gone, but did not know when it came off. He did some searching in the sand, but soon realized the futility of searching so much area with only his hands. He found me on the web, called and I agreed to meet him as soon as I could.

When I got to the beach Henry met me and we walked down to the sand and the court where he had been playing. We talked about what happened, and I asked a multitude of questions reassuring him that if it was still here, I would find it. I also explained that I would be searching outside of the area just in case it had been knocked out of the area of play somehow. I searched where he originally thought it may have been lost, it wasn’t there. I then went to the next possible spot, it wasn’t there either. I then said that I would search the whole court, both sides to ensure we covered all possibilities. I was searching in the first side and made about 3 passes when I got a good signal. I put the scoop in and pulled out a very unique looking item. I held it up for Henry to see, he came over and identified it as his jewelry. He was very happy to know he had it back, and I was happy to have made his day.

Yuxi called last night, she had lost her engagement ring while cleaning the sand off of her belongings. She said she would wait at the beach, and I told her I would be on my way immediately. She sent me a text with the area she was at, and I knew the parking lot was closed for the night, so I would have to park pretty far from the area.

When I got to the beach, being Friday night at a very popular beach, I had to park over 1 mile away. Fortunately I have a Segway MiniPro, so I grabbed my equipment, hopped on the Segway, and headed down the bike path with my headlight turned on. When I got to the spot, I saw Yuxi looking at her phone and asked if she was waiting for someone to help find her ring, and she said she was. I must have been a sight to her, 6 foot standing another 6 inches taller on a moving platform with all my equipment, lights and all. She took me over to the area, and showed me where she thought it was lost, Which was maybe 8 x8 feet square (not very large). I could see a bunch of sand that had been scraped out, and a slight hole, so I started there. The ring was not there. I made another pass, and got a good signal outside of the dug out spot, put the scoop in, and found Yuxi’s ring. She was very happy. She and her fiancé Chenglong have matching engagement rings, so it would have been very disappointing for her to lose hers. I got some pictures, and we talked a while, they were so happy! I then hopped back on my Segway for my trek back down the bike path to my car, a very joyful evening indeed!

While out on the beach doing the night search for the lost wedding band I got a desperate call from Josh. He had thrown his car key and remote off of his apartment balcony into the ivy and bushes, and was unable to find them. I let him know that I would come over as soon as I finished my search for the ring.

I finished my ring search about 10:00 PM, and arrived at Josh’s house about 10:30 PM. He explained what he did and showed me the area. There was not only ivy, but bougainvillea as well, two forms of shrubbery that can hide things well. I put on my headlight, and grabbed my detector and pin pointer and began my search. I found a number of metal items such as cans and bottle caps. I continued my search a little out of the initial area, and found the car key. Josh was surprised and very happy. I continued the search for the remote doing battle with the bougainvillea, but I was losing the battle with blood dripping from my arms from the wicked thorns that were hard to see at night, so I told Josh that I would come the next day when the sun was up to do a more thorough search for the remote. I got there today and asked Josh to recreate the actions he took the previous night. It looked as though the remote was going to be in one of the bushes. I was able to get my detector coil under the bushes, and under one of the bougainvillea got a real good signal. I put the pin pointer under the bush being careful of the thorns, and deep in the bush was the remote. Josh was overjoyed to get his key and remote back, and I was happy to have made his day.

I was at the dentist this morning (always a pleasurable occasion:-0). When I got out, I noticed that I had received a call. I called the number back and talked to Walt. He had lost his wedding ring on the beach earlier in the morning. Time is always the enemy of a recovery, and because this had happened today, I told him I would be on my way as soon as I picked up my equipment at home.

When I got to the beach Walt met me and walked me out to the spot of the loss. He told me how he had put his ring in his back pocket, and when removing something from the pocket the ring must have flipped out into the sand. I began my grid, going over the possible area of the loss, and then expanded it out with no luck. Walt and his friends had moved their towels to give me access to more area expanding my search, but no luck. I did a cross grid over the whole area just in case the ring was on edge and turned, but no luck. We talked, and I let Walt know that the ring was not in the searched area. He felt I had searched all of the area he thought the ring would have landed, but I asked him to move the towels back, and I would go over the area they had moved their belongings to although it was way outside of the possible area of the loss. As I completed the first pass, I got a good signal, dug, and had Walt’s ring in my scoop. I held it up to his total surprise, he could not believe it had landed in that spot, so far from where he thought originally, no way. An awesome recovery!

Last night I received a call from Fred, he had lost his wedding ring while at the beach with his family. He put all of the belongings that he thought could be lost in his chair while he went in the water and played with his children. What happened though was that when they were packing to leave the beach for the day, he forgot about the ring when gathering up his belongings, and when he picked the chair up, the ring disappeared into the sand. When he called, even though it was getting late, and he had already gone home, I convinced Fred to meet me at the beach so he could guide me to the area, and help me to help him. It is so important in a public area such as a beach or park, to do the search right away so as to eliminate many of the factors that could make a search impossible. In these recovery’s, time is the enemy.

Fred beat me to the beach, and with the dwindling light and lack of crowds, it made easy to find him. He led me out to the area, and showed me what had happened, and in what direction they had left the beach, so I began my search. As I searched, I would stop when I had found a bottle cap, foil, or some other metal I would turn to show Fred in order to let him know that I had not found the ring during that dig, but it seemed he was in deep thought (or prayer) hoping for the ring’s return, that he did not notice my showing of the metal most of the time. I searched from the first area up to the exit of the sand with no ring. I then took off my shoes to go into the water in the incoming tide, and began my search in the wet sand planning to work into the water. I got a good signal and dug. It wasn’t in the first scoop, so I dug again, and this time the metal was in the scoop. I shook the sand out, and there was Fred’s ring, a big heavy platinum ring. My scoop is 14 inches long, and that ring had sunk at least that deep in the soft sand in just a few hours, helped by the water going over wave after wave. I held the ring up for Fred, and shined my head lamp on it so he could see what I was holding. I waited for him to realize what I was holding in my hand, and he came immediately over. He then took the ring, but I believe he had convinced himself it wouldn’t be found, and was trying hard to find the markings that would prove it his. When he finally realized the ring was his, he blew out a sigh of relief, which made it very evident that this ring meant a whole lot to him. He then informed me that he and his wife were going to celebrate their milestone 15th wedding anniversary next month. This was the ring his wife had given him on that celebrated day, and it held a great sentimental value for him, all of this exposed his huMANity. It was great to have been able to help him; a wonderful day.

Keith called yesterday about a loss of 2 rings that happened Saturday. His wife had been at the beach, when she decided to put sunscreen on. She removed her rings, applied her sunscreen, and without realizing they were not back on her finger, she stood up and moved around. The rings were gone. Keith found me on the internet the day after asking if I could help. I explained that I would do a search for them, but also explained how the County cleans the beach with machines daily, and that the beach is searched often by other detectorists, so the possibility of a recovery had diminished considerably. We arranged to meet later in the evening when the crowds had dissipated.

When I got to the beach, I saw that there was already someone working close to the area that we were supposed to search. I figured it was possible that he already found the rings. I called Keith to let him know I had arrived, and found he was already there. I met him, then went to introduce myself to the other gentleman who was already searching the area to inform him that my interest was to look for the rings, and not to move in on him. He seemed alright with that. So I began my grid. I worked in an outside area to work my way in as I continued along. Keith and his wife figured I should move closer to the water, so I began another grid in that area. The other gentleman continued to work around in the area as well. After about 8 or 10 passes, I got a good signal, scooped, and had a nice heavy platinum ring in my scoop, and figured the second one wouldn’t be far away. I looked and looked making many more passes in the area, but not finding it. The other detectorist hearing the commotion after my recovery of the first ring came over to look at the ring, when he realized that he might have the other one, so he poured out the contents of his find bag on a towel, and there it was. He thought he had found a washer, and hadn’t paid it much attention until he saw the other ring.

So between me and my new detector friend Chuck, we were able to bring some amazing smiles back to Keith and his wife. Another great day!

Keith sent the following testimonial:

“My wife was in a panic when she realized her engagement and wedding rings were missing on a Sunday afternoon. We retraced her steps and realized the last time we saw them was on the beach the day before.

I went to Yelp to look for metal detection equipment and Steve’s site was the first listed. I was surprised that he picked up the phone on a Sunday but he did and we arranged to meet; my expectations of finding the rings a day later were not high.

We met at the beach that afternoon. There are people who comb the beach as a hobby but my immediate impression was that Steve was a professional at this. He immediately struck up a conversation with another beachcomber and got him to join the effort. Steve clearly used a grid to search, not random wandering and covered all of the search area. I told my wife that this was not going to work…

But…about 20 minutes into the search he got a hit and scooped one ring out of the sand. Once the other gentlemen saw it, he recognized that he had already picked up the second ring earlier without realizing what it was (very simple design with no gems). He dumped his bag out and we had the complete set back. Huge relief!

Steve specializes in ring retrieval and sure came through for us. Great guy who wants to help people and clearly loves what he does. Lose something valuable and/or sentimental? Steve’s the guy to call!”
