I received a call from David who was calling for a friend that had lost his ring in the sand at the beach. David remembered me from 3 years prior when he called me for another friend who had lost his ring, which I found. This time his friend Brian had put his wedding ring in his hat when he went into the water, but forgot when his belongings were moved so the two of them could practice their Wifflle Ball skills. I let them know I would be able to come right away.

I got to the area, and David found me to wave me over the spot of the loss. He showed me the area, which did not seem to be large, right next to a trash can. I began my search grid, not finding anything. I then began a grid behind the trash can, and right next to it received a good signal. I had to scoop a couple of times because the target was moving, but when I raised the scoop, inside was a nice gold ring. I gave it back to Brian, who was happy he did not have to go home and have to explain to his wife how it was lost.😊 Another great day!

I received a distressed email from Tommy the other day. He had lost a very special ring in the surf at the beach that he had been wearing for the past 23 years. He had won the ring at the Maryland DC White Marlin Open Tournament in 1997, a tournament that he had fished for most of his life, and to lose this precious reward was a major blow. The problem was that the ring was lost 3 days earlier, and I was already thinking that the possibility of a recovery was going to be slim to none. The best chance of a search was going to be the next morning, so that was going to be 4 days. I called Tommy and we discussed what had happened. There were details about the loss that were favorable, like the fact he lost it at high tide, which would have put me in a good position at low tide the next day. He was not able to meet me there for the search, but was able to give me a great landmark to use to do the search, so I let him know I would go, and let him know one way or the other if I was able to locate his ring.

I got to the area, and began my search at the top of the slope working North and South, and worked my way down to the water. There was so much sand, and I was not getting any signals although I was using one of my deepest detectors. I finally found one crusted penny. I reached the water’s edge, and donned my chest waders to search in the surf. I now worked East and West trying to maintain a close grid working down the beach. I was able to go out into the surf quite far because after going through a hole, there was a sand bar that raised back up, and was flat out to the breaking waves. I found another crusted penny out there, and ended up covering the whole area that I had searched up on the slope. Tommy had told me that if anything, he might have been more North of the landmark as opposed to South, so I moved up to continue searching in the Northern direction. I made a few passes from the top of the slope into the water, and while about 30 feet out in the water, out on the bar I got a good signal. I was able to scoop the target digging once, and after washing the sand from the scoop saw the ring I was hunting, I couldn’t believe it was still there, but seeing it made me very happy. I took a picture of the ring and sent a text to Tommy letting him know about the recovery, and he sent a me a text back, one of total disbelief. We arranged to meet when he got off of work, to return the ring. When we met, he told me how he had been in communication with the tournament to find out if the ring could be replaced, because he thought it was lost forever. I was very honored to be able to hand this precious memory back to him; made his day!

I awoke and found I had received an email from Leah. She had been at the beach the day before, when while in the water, she was struck by a wave, and knocked down. When she arose, she realized her ring was gone. Noticing the time the email was sent (12:17 AM), I could tell this was a distraught appeal for help. She told how this was her Grandmother’s wedding ring, a Grandmother I found out later, had passed away. This was a reminder of her Grandmother that she carried with her daily, so it turned out to be a great loss. Leah was not able to meet me at the beach to show me where to look, but had given some information in her email, and also sent me a Google Earth picture with an outline showing the loss area. I went at the earliest low tide that day.

I arrived at the beach, and began my search at one end of the area pictured, and began my grid. I continued my search, with very few targets, for about 1 1/2 hours, with no ring. I finished what I thought was the limit for that direction, and decided to go back to my starting point, and worked the other direction. I made about 4 new passes when that sweet sound came through the head phones, loud and clear. I dug, and in the pile on the edge of the sand was a nice glimmer of gold. I reached down, and picked it out, and it was Leah’s ring. I emailed her right away with excitement, and we arranged to meet the next day make the return. When we met, her mom was with her, and explained the importance the ring to Leah, and how devastated she was when it was lost. Leah was very happy when I gave it back, and her smile says it all!

Leah sent the following testimonial:

After I lost the ring, I just kept telling myself that it’s okay and it’s just a ring. But it kept bothering me and I felt so sad as if I lost someone. I lost the ring in the afternoon and I was still up and crying about it past midnight. I really couldn’t believe that I had just lost something so important me so fast. At one moment I was having fun with my friends splashing in the shallow waves (and making sure my ring was on and safe). The next minute later, I was trying to get up from being hit with a scary wave and then I realized my ring was gone.

I already felt much better after contacting Steve. Knowing that someone would still be searching for the ring, comforted me and I had hope! Once the ring was found, I literally felt “in balance” again. The ring was my late grandma’s and wearing it everyday for over three years now has always kept me tied to her. Having it back felt like I had a part of my grandma with me again.

Steve was incredibly kind when we met each other. His dedication and passion really meant a lot to me, he truly cares about his work!! I will always remember this story and Steve!

Thank you Steve!!!!
Leah

I was in a meeting when Patrick called me about a search for his wife’s wedding ring. They were out celebrating their 2nd wedding anniversary the day before, when with a flip of the wrist her ring flew off of her hand, and into the soft sand to disappear. After some futile searching they went home, I am sure thinking this token of their love was gone forever. The next day Patrick found my number on The Ring Finders web site, and gave me a call. I told him that I would be able to do the search in the evening because of the meeting. He was not going to be able to meet me there, but gave some pictures of where the loss occurred, as well as a picture of what the ring looked like, and I told him I would let know if I was able to find the ring.

I got to the beach, and because of the pictures Patrick provided, was able to find the exact area of the loss. I set up and began my search. I found a few pieces of trash metal like tin foil and bottle caps. On my 4th pass I got a good signal, and dug. In my scoop was a real nice gold and diamond ring, but when I looked closer, I realized it was different than the picture he had sent to me, so I continued to search the area looking for his wife’s ring. I finished the search, and then called Patrick to let him know what had happened. I let him know I had found a ring, but not like picture he had sent me. He told me that he had found a picture on the internet of what he thought the ring looked like, and would ask his wife if she had a picture, and would send it to me. When I received the picture I realized that I had found the right ring, and let him know we had success. We arranged to meet the next day for the return. It was nice meeting them and being able to give this meaningful item back to them, and see their joy.

I got an emergency call from Alex last night; she had lost her car key in the beach sand. It was about 9:30 PM, and she had her children with her, and needed to be able to get home, so I let her know that I would be leaving for the search immediately.

When I got there they were waiting for me, and Alex took me out to where she believed the loss occurred. I began my search, and found numerous pieces of trash metal, and one house key, but not her car key. It was then that her children came down to beach, and showed us that we were searching about 60 feet off target. I went to where they showed me to search, and began another search. I worked it out one way with no key, and then worked out the other way, and after 2 passes, got a good shallow signal, scooped, and by 11:00 PM had her key.  Alex was very happy to be able get her children home. It was a great night!

I was out on the bike path of the beach yesterday getting some exercise when I received a call from Eric. Eric explained to me that he had been in his yard with some friends the other day when somehow his new hearing aid fell from his ear into the grass. He told me how they had searched, but were unable to find it. We arranged to meet today to do the search.

I got to his house as soon as I was able, and met Eric. He had his remaining hearing aid in a “Zip Lock” bag waiting for me so I could check to see if my detector would be able to pick it up. I laid it out on the grass of his yard, and scanned it, there was enough metal for it to see. I then checked it with my pin pointer, also a good signal. Eric showed me where he had been most of the day, so I began my search checking each good signal, but it was not in that area. I then began moving out of the box. Eric showed me where he had raked the leaves and debris to the edge, so I made sure to check there as well, no hearing aid. As soon as I moved out of the area he had showed me I got another good signal, put in my pin pointer, and there it was. The color was somewhat neutral, so it really blended in with the surrounding grass and dirt, but there it was. I brought it over to Eric, who was very happy to have it found. I was great to be able to help him out; a fine day!

Eric sent the following testimonial:

“I cannot say enough about how lucky I feel that I found Steve Smith via Ringfinders network. A relatively new and expensive hearing aid somehow fell out of my ear while having a small , “social distancing” cocktail with friends in our backyard recently. My wife and I raked and raked the grass with expectation that we would find it-but failed. I then decided to try to rent a metal detector to search again by myself-but, found that to be a tough process. And, as my new hero Steve pointed out, I would have had trouble learning how to use it. I found Steve via a Google Search and the rest was history. We live in Pasadena area Foothills-which is a long schlep for Steve-but he drove over the next day. He is a class act and a real gentleman and he found the device after almost an hour of very dedicated searching. My only “quibble” with Steve’s services is that he lets the customer decide on payment. I decided to both pay him, and then make a donation to a charity that he chose. Eric”

I got a call from Liz’s boyfriend last night about 9:30 PM regarding a ring she lost at the beach earlier. She had been down on the sand enjoying the cool of the evening after a hot day, and also enjoying the bioluminesence show that we have been experiencing lately. After we talked, he had her call me to explain the loss and answer some questions she had regarding our service. After a few minutes of discussion we agreed to meet at the beach as soon as I could get there.

I got to the area at about 10:00 PM, and met Liz and her father, and they took me out to where they remembered being when they were out earlier. She showed me what had happened, that with a flip of the wrist the ring was gone. She had a good idea of where it landed, but was unable to find it, even though she diligently searched for it. I turned on the detector, and in two passes got a good clean signal, and dug. I seemed to move the item around, so I had to scoop a couple more times. In the bottom of the scoop was a real cool looking gold ring with a topaz stone. She was very excited to know that it was found, and it was nice to know that she was going to sleep well last night.

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.

I received an early morning call from Whitney the other day regarding the loss of his wife’s wedding ring. It seems that 3 days earlier she had been out in the yard playing with her son, and took her rings off so as not to get them messed up. She laid them on the grass, but did not take into account their dogs running around. So when she went back to retrieve her rings they were gone, quite possibly kicked around by the dogs and pushed down into the grass. We arranged on a time to come out, and I readied my equipment for the search.

When I got to their house Whitney met me and showed me the area of the loss, which wasn’t large. He then explained how he had searched and found the engagement ring, but after about a total of 8 hours of searching over the 3 days, was not able to locate the wedding band. I set up my equipment for this search and began a tight grid. About 5 minutes into the search, I got a great shallow signal, and to Whitney’s surprise, found the ring, just a couple of feet from the original location. It was a small yellow gold ring that was easily hidden in the brown parts of the grass. Needless to say Whitney and his wife were pleased to have found The Ring Finders, and I was happy to be able to reunite them with their precious token of love!

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!
