Lost wedding ring in the grass, Orlando, Florida….Found and Returned to owner!

  • from Sanford (Florida, United States)
Contact:



I received a call from Scott asking if I could help find his lost wedding ring in his front yard! I asked him the usual questions like…When did he lose it? How did it happen? and Did he have a good idea of the exact area where he lost it? And all of the answers that Scott gave me indicated that his lost wedding ring should not be very difficult to find.

Armed with that information and my trusty Garrett, ATMax metal detector I headed for Orlando with high hopes. Made me think of how many people have lost rings, earrings and necklaces while playing with their favorite pet! Sometimes they are able to find their lost item and at other times the grass or sand swallows their personal treasure, never to be seen again.

Scott on the other hand was very sure of the exact spot where he was when he felt his ring come off. So I began my grid search just wide of the area he indicated and it took only 5 minutes to get the solid, shallow signal I was looking for. And Scott was thrilled to get his lost wedding ring back and I was honored and thankful to have been given the opportunity to help him!

Lost something recently or years ago…maybe I can help. Call, leave a message or text me ASAP! I would be honored to help you.

*** Allen and his friends were at beach front home in Newport Beach, CA. 92660. He was wearing his gold diamond watch with a matching gold diamond ring. These were both very expensive and very sentimental as Allen had been given these to celebrate a special occasion.

Sometime in the late afternoon the white gold diamond ring came off his finger disappearing into the sand. He and his friends searched for it several frustrating hours,  disrupting the party. 

Allen found my contact information after a google search. He was very excited when he called me, asking if I could come right away. It was just four miles from my place but it was late afternoon and with the traffic it took me about a half hour.

I met him on the sand near the patio of the beachfront home. He said he had been shaking his friend’s hand when the ring flew off his finger into the sand. There were beach chairs and longes on the sand. I did a preliminary scan of the sand before moving any of the beach furniture. “Boom” .. the beautiful gold diamond ring in my scoop.

Allen and everyone at the party was excited and relieved that the ring had been recovered. Allen wanted to show me the gold diamond watch that was part of a matching set that was custom made for him. We took a few minutes to do a photo-op. where he want me to take a pic of both the watch and ring. It was a very special search and I was happy to be available to help Allen.

I was metal defecting at Corona del Mar State Beach in the city of Newport Beach, CA. When I spotted an area that looked like someone had been searching for a lost item. No body was near, so out of curiosity I ran my detector over the zone. Boom!  I dug up a brand new key fob for a Audi Suv car.

I usually turn car keys into the lifguards as that is the first place people go to see if their keys had been found. It was late, the lifeguard office was closed. I detected in the area for another hour hoping the people would return. Now it was dark so, I decided I would drive up to the street above the beach hoping to see a mobile lock service, AAA helping a keyless car owner.

Just for fun I pushed on the key fob buttons and Bingo, I found the Audi Suv.. I waited about a half hour then decided to leave two notes, with my contact information. ( one inside and one in the windshield )

The next morning I received a call from the owner. He was very grateful. He had a share set of keys but they were 450 miles away in San Francisco, CA.. The dealership told him it would be 3 or 4 weeks before they could get him another set of keys. 

Every thing worked out the way it was suppose to be. What is next?

*** Kallie called asking if I was available to help find two heirloom wedding rings lost at a beach in Malibu, CA.  She and her friend, Thuy had been at the beach earlier in the day. Thuy put her weddings rings in the pocket of her pants, then put the pants in a beach bag.

After returning home the rings we’re not in the pants pocket. She was devastated because the rings had been past down from her husbands great grandmother, irreplaceable. Her friend Kallie called asking if I could meet them tomorrow morning. I told her I would rather meet them at 8pm this evening. Timing is important especially at the beach.

It was dark when we met but that’s usually not a problem. I always have several different lights.

They showed me an area near a lifeguard tower. I began a grid search while they took one of my high powered search lights to check the parking lot. A few minutes later Kallie called me, asking if I could check the spot where they had parked in the dirt. Possibly the rings may have fallen into dirt when she put her pants into the car. 

I pulled off my grid search in the dry sand, walked a half block to where they were waiting. It only took a few minutes to find both rings. Initially they didn’t remember doing anything at the car before leaving for home. It all worked out fine. If we waited till the next morning cars would have been all over the free parking on the shoulder of Pacific Coast Highway.

Very happy ladies and the recovery worked out well.

Laguna Beach, CA. Lost Thin Necklace in Dry Sand at Table Rock Cove .. Found with Metal Detector

*** I received a call from Taylor, who had lost a thin silver necklace in the dry sand at a small cove in Laguna Beach, CA. The first thing I noticed was my caller ID indicated that I had recovered a Cartier ring for her last year.

It was like talking to an old friend. She said, she was at Table Rock Beach Cove in South Laguna.  She had placed her thin silver necklace on the towel while she wet for a swim. Her friend picked up the towel not knowing the chain was there. They could not find the necklace even though it was in a 10’x10’ area.

I met them at Table Rock Beach after driving 10 miles. It was a bit of a walk down a couple hundred steps down to the sand. Because the chain was very thin and it had a very small pendant. I brought two detectors and a special sand rake that I use for small items that can’t be detected. No way was I willing to hike back up the 200 plus steps to get other equipment.

Taylor and her friend showed me the spot they were guarding. I set up my Equinox 800. A few swings later I got a faint signal but the iD reading was stable at a #3. It just slipped through my sand scoop so, I reached into the sand with my hands. The tiny thin necklace was in my hand and it was barely visible.  Successful search with Taylor and her friend happy they took the time to call for help.

How to Find a Small White Gold Earring Lost in Sand .. at Laguna Beach, CA… Using a Metal Detector

**** Kelly call me to inquire if I could help her find a small white gold earring in the sand at a small cove in Laguna Beach, CA. She was sure that it had to be near where she and her girl friends had spent the day. 

She couldn’t meet me at the location until after her last class at school which would be the next day at 6pm. We discussed the location a little bit more and she sent me a photo . After recognizing the lifeguard tower in the back ground, I felt I would not need her to come to beach. 

The next morning I was at the West St. Beach in South Laguna. Kelly had told me that the earring was a small hoop type white gold item. So I took two metal detectors down the long set of steps . Immediately I spotted the landmarks. Also, I could see finger drag marks in the sand. 

Thought this would be a easy find. My first double grid over the zone with my multi frequency detector did not reveal the earring. I took a few minutes to set up my other detector which I could use at a higher frequency setting. “BOOM” .. a couple swings got me a decent signal. The white gold earring was found. It was open and possibly on edge ? Can’t really say why I missed it with my other detector, because it is also know for finding small nonferrous metals.

The most important fact is this very sentimental piece of jewelry was found and returned to Kelly later in the evening. A very happy grateful young lady.

Lost wallet in the water, Atlantic Ocean, Daytona Beach….Found and Returned to owner!

  • from Sanford (Florida, United States)
Contact:



While searching for a lost silver cross and chain for a young man from Wisconsin, I dug up someones wallet in the knee deep waters of the Atlantic Ocean. That’s not something we find very often and from the looks and condition of the wallet and the contents inside I could tell it had been there for a couple of months, at least. I never did find the silver cross but who knows it may show up yet! Plus that very same day I eyeballed a really nice lady’s diamond ring that is waiting to be reunited with its rightful owner. So after I got home and got myself and my gear all cleaned up I took out the wallet I had found and started going through the contents. First off it had a flat magnet and a flat metal plate sewn inside the wallet that helped keep it in the closed position. And it was those two pieces of metal that helped me find the wallet under all that sand. It contained three credit cards, one Florida Resident fishing license, a drivers license and 52 dollars in bills. Not a bad score for a day at the beach!

Later that evening I did a little investigation on line and found the owner of the wallets family and gave them a call. A few days later the wallet and all the contents were put in an envelope and mailed off to Jacksonville, Florida and here is the response that Coby sent me a week later.

“Hi Mike, I wanted to say thank you so much for sending my wallet, cards and cash back to me in one piece! Although the cards are no longer useful, it is great to have my ID and especially the cash again. My sister Rachel (with me in the picture) told me you washed, dried and ironed it! I appreciate what you do for people and as a Christian man myself, I thank God for people like you! You do the world a service unlike no other and people like you make the world go ’round’! Please let me know if you ever need anything from me. I am truly in your debt and thankful to you and the Lord for this reunion! Take good care of yourself and keep up the wonderful work! PS Here is a picture of myself and my sister Rachel with the items you sent to me. God Bless–Coby”

Metal Detecting for a Lost Wedding Ring at Seal Beach, CA . .. Found and Returned to Owner

*** Frank and his family were at Seal Beach, CA. when he put his platinum wedding ring in the pocket of his beach chair. Last year he had lost the same ring in the surf for over a month and I was able to recover it. That time his wife called me giving me verbal directions. I knew it was a shot in the dark, but it turned out to be a successful search. She didn’t tell him and surprised him by hanging it where he normally put his ring while showering. 

Even though he had had the platinum wedding ring resized, Frank didn’t want to lose the ring in the water again. He put his ring in a pocket of his beach chair for safekeeping. This is such a common story, I knew we had a very good chance to find the ring as he contacted me within an hour of the loss. Our only possible problem could be, he did not realize the ring was missing until they got back to the car. ( a couple hundred yards across the sand). It’s my experience that rings in beach chair cup holders fall out when the chair is picked up or soon after.

This time I went out to the towel line and near a blue tent that Frank had given as a landmark. The tent was still on the beach. After a few grid lines, I got a few great signal in my earphones with a perfect platinum ID reading on my detector screen. A quick dig with my sand scoop revealed Frank’s Tiffany Platinum Wedding Ring.

I called him and he was able to meet me 20 minutes later. It was our first meeting and he told me the story about how his wife had surprised him after losing the ring in the surf last year. Every search is different and it’s always an adventure to search for items lost in so many different scenarios. In a lot of ways, it like gambling. I’ve got to believe the person has a general idea where the ring was lost. I do have a list of texts of people that have found their lost jewelry at a completely different location . It is just part of what we do as ring finders. Also many people do not understand what it takes to be a ring finder.  It’s a special challenge to find a known a known lost object, much different than wondering around a park or beach finding the odd valuable. 

I am retired having many things that keep me busy. I would rather be available to search for sentimental lost keepsakes than do anything else. It was a pleasure to meet Frank and return his wedding ring a second time.

*** Mary was doing her yoga work out on a lawn when her necklace broke. The small gold cross that was a gift from her mother disappeared into the grass. She found my service on line. She immediately called me asking if I was available to yelp her. 

I left right away to meet her in Santa Monica, CA., where she was waiting to show me the location.

She showed me where the incident happened. As we looked into the lawn I caught a glimpse of gold in the grass and pointed, before I could say anything, Mary spotted it at the same time. 

After retrieving the petite gold cross, I checked it with my pinpointer and could not get a decent signal. I know this was so small that a metal detector may not have detected this. So happy that we were able to visually locate this very small gold cross. I believe the time of day and the position the sun helped to make this visible. Mary was was very happy that she waited long enough for this recovery.

**** Ann and Doug are from Chicago, IL. They were vacationing in Laguna Beach, CA. he lost his wedding ring.  They were enjoying the day at Monarch Bay Resort. After lunch they went out on the sand to take a walk near the water’s edge. In the middle of the beach Doug picked up a ball to throw it to Ann. His loose fitting gold wedding ring went flying off his finger into the soft dry sand. It disappeared immediately. 

The beach attendants assisted them to search for the ring without any success. Ann and Doug had to leave the area because they had be in San Diego, CA. that evening. As they were driving the 70 miles, Ann found my contact information on line. She called me at 4:30pm as they were driving, telling me they had lost the ring about 2:30pm. She verbally explained what had happened and sent me some photos of the location of the general area of the loss. The internet and cellphones are awesome.

I have been on that beach several other times but this time I could not get through the security gate. Just a little inconvenience, which meant I’d have to walk in about 3/4 of a mile. When I got to the beach and lined up with the landmarks Ann had given me, I found some rake marks on the sand. These had to be where they searched couple hours before. Starting my grid search I covered the whole marked off spot. Now I began a new grid area to the south. On the third 25ft. line got my first signal and only signal. Yes, it was Doug’s gold wedding band, out in the middle of nowhere. 

I contacted them with the good news. We discussed the best way to return the ring as mailing it was not proving to be the best option. They could not be returning to Chicago for several days. After discussing several ideas, I realized how important this ring was to Doug and I volunteered to deliver it to him at their hotel in San Diego. I was free and it wasn’t that much trouble, so I made the drive and met the both of them before 9pm. I do enjoy meeting the people I had the pleasure to help, that’s the bonus for me.  

Another happy day in the life of a Ring Finder and then people we are able to help.
