Billy a relative of Karen called me asking if I could help them find a family heirloom diamond ring that Karen had lost at the beach just an hour before the call. Knowing that the weather had been nice, and there were a lot of people there I told him I would leave right away to do the search if they would await. They agreed to wait, and I left for the search.

Billy met me when I arrived and took me to the area of the loss. His family including Karen was visiting from Wisconsin, and were scheduled to leave the next day, so this loss created a high level of tension. The ring had been Karen’s great grandmother’s, and had a deep special meaning for her. They showed me what had happened, the ring had flown off of her finger while she was brushing the sand off of her clothes. I began my search and found bottle caps, foil, some coins, but no ring. I then began searching in the other direction, and a little further out, when I got a good strong signal. I put the scoop in, pulled it up and shook out the sand. When I looked in, expecting to see the diamond ring, I saw 2 rings, and was a little puzzled. Before I brought them out, I asked if I was looking for 1 or 2 rings, they then said that 2 were lost, but they were really concerned about the diamond ring. That is when I pulled them both out of the scoop to everyone’s surprise. Karen had an immediate flood of emotion when she saw the ring her great grandmother had worn, and came and gave me a big hug. I know it was bothering her to think she might have to go back to Wisconsin leaving this representation of her family behind. Boy it is great to see joy restored!

Paul called explaining that he had lost his ring while pulling weeds in the yard. With the recent rains the grass had grown rapidly along with the weeds. As he threw a clump of weeds his custom ring that he had purchased from a vendor on the streets of New York City flew off of his finger into the tall grass. He began to strip the grass down to the ground in the area he thought the ring may have landed, but was not able to find it. Thinking it may have flown farther, and down a highly vegetated hillside, he sought more professional help. Paul found me on the Ring Finders web site and called, and we arranged to meet.

When I got to Paul’s house, he showed me the area where he was working, and the hand motion that caused the loss. I noticed that the grass had been stripped down to the dirt almost, so anything like his ring would be there in sight, but I ran my coil over the whole area nun the less. Finding nothing there, I began on the hillside that started on the edge of the small yard. I worked my way down the hillside slowly searching every inch of the ground; NOTHING! I looked at Paul asking if there was anything else that could have happened, and he assured me the loss occurred exactly as he explained, so I went back up to the original area. It was then I noticed the pile of grass that Paul had removed from the area of the loss, and began my search in the pile. After a few passes, I got the signal I was looking for, moved the grass around and there it was. I held the ring up, and Paul came running over. He was so surprised that it was in the pile he had set aside, but so very happy it had been found. I know that I made his day!

Greg had been at Will Rodgers Beach in Santa Monica, CA. He lost a very expensive high tech hearing aid. He called me asking if I had metal detectors that could find a hearing aid lost in the sand. I have several metal detectors that are specifically for finding small objects. The most important factor, is getting me to the general location as soon as possible.

I met him about 3pm in the afternoon with probably a couple hours of daylight left before dark. These hearing aids actually have gps locating capabilities and the last location was across the street near the bus stop. We went to search that location first without success.

Greg brought the matching hearing aid and it was quite easy to get a good signal. Now he pointed out an area of the beach where he had been flying a kite with his son.

It was a massive area, probably as big as a football field. Plan “A” was to start gridding 30’x 30’ quadrants. While starting the first 30 feet, Greg told me that he had fallen down at the other end of the search area.

I changed my search plan, deciding to start from the place where Greg had fallen. 

We proceeded to walk over to that location. I left my detector on as we walked diagonally to a new starting spot 100 yards away. Stopping a slow grid and stepping up my pace, I only went 20 feet when I got a signal that was worth checking. 

Unbelievable! There was Greg’s hearing aid. First target 20 minutes after starting a search that I felt was going to be possibly 3 or 4 hours.

Greg later told me that he had only been using these hearing aids for 4 months and the whole set was valued at more than $10k. We saved a whole lot of trouble getting it replaced besides the expense to get a replacement.

I believe in miracles, but they don’t happen if you don’t try.

I received a call from Asher today, he had lost his wedding ring while pushing his daughter on a swing in his local park. He said it had happened today, and it sounded as though he had not left the area, so everything was sounding like there would be a successful recovery. Knowing this was in a public place the emphasis is on getting there for the search as soon as possible, so I told him I would leave right away.

When I got to the park, I walked over where the swings are, and Asher met me to show me what and where the loss happened. He had actually witnessed the ring coming off of his finger and hitting the sand, so he knew where it had gone, but yet he searched for over an hour with no luck in finding it. It is really amazing how the sand will swallow up a ring or piece of jewelry to where it is impossible to find. Fortunately I use the best equipment made for such a recovery, and have the experience to make the recovery happen. Like I tell the people who call me, if it is there I will find it. One short pass, and two scoops later Asher’s ring was in my scoop. He was very happy. This ring represented 3 years of loving commitment for him, he wanted it back, and I was happy to be able to make that happen for him. Awesome day!

Mari called me asking for help to find her husband’s gold wedding ring lost in the yard while clearing debris from drainage gutters. Her husband, Ali didn’t feel the ring come off his finger. His hands were cold and wet. It had to come off while digging in the wet mud of the planter.

The next day Ali tediously removed all the wood chip ground cover looking for a glimmer of gold color. Then he sifted through a lot of the muddy soil. They called several stores trying to find a metal detector in stock. Then that afternoon they went to a local home depot tool rental store. Someone there told them about TheRingFinders. Ali called me, telling me the story. 

I was not sure what conditions I would have to deal with and it looked like it might be raining. I brought rain gear just in case. We were lucky that the rain had just let up when I met Ali that morning. He showed me where he had searched. It took a few minutes to set up my detector because there was some electrical interference near the house. 

The area was less than 20’x20’. I began swinging my coil over most the area hearing several potential targets without checking them. When swinging up under a small palm tree a stronger tone and good number ID came up on my metal detector. Ali was standing next to me with a small garden shovel in his hand. I ask him to dig that spot. He only pushed the hand shovel 3” on the damp mud then when he dumped it the gold ring popped out. Both of us were surprised, it was only a few minutes and it was our first target. The right tool for the right job.

I never get tired of doing this, even though there are times when the lost item may not be in the location where it was thought to be lost. You can’t find it if it isn’t there.

Safety Deposit Box Key Lost in Center Grass Median of Busy Blvd. in Bell Gardens, CA…Found and Returned.

II received a call from a young lady who had lost a safety deposit key. She thought she was holding an old key that was no longer usable, but her sister had given her the good key instead. As she was driving down the street she was thinking about the key and decided it was no longer needed, so she threw it out of the car window. It wasn’t until she contacted her sister later that she found out she had thrown out the much needed key.

When I got there she met me and told me all that had happened, and showed me the median. It was about 4:00 PM, on a weekday with a lot of traffic from people getting off of work on their way home. The median was no more than 8 feet wide, so checking on the tones that were on the edge would put me within inches of passing vehicles. The area was about 100 feet long, and I needed to make sure I covered to whole area because she had been moving, and the key most likely bounced when it hit, and was in an area further along from where it had been released. Fortunately she had another key similar to the one that was lost, so I was able to get a reading off of it to know what I was needing to hear. I found a lot of different types of metal during the search, and it wasn’t until neared the end of the median that I found the key underneath the grass. When I brought it back to her, she was very relieved and happy to have it back. Glad to have made her day.

Lost Platinum Wedding Ring while Fishing at Long Beach, CA.

Steven was fishing in the surf at Long Beach, CA. His hand got hung up in his fishing line and his ring came off his finger flying into the dry sand. After two hours of searching the sand with his hands, he did a google search for metal detector service. That was how he found my contact information.

When I talked to Steven I was sure that the ring could be found if he could meet me at the location. He was concerned that the tide was rising and it would soon be under water. I assured him that would not be a problem as I would be there within an hour. Even if it was in the water we still can find it. The most important factor is that he can be there to put me in the general location. Sometimes people leave the area and can’t get back to the location, especially on the beach.

When I walked out to meet Steven, he was a little frustrated as he and his friend had been sifting through the sand with their hands for a couple hours. He showed me what had happened when he felt his ring fly off his finger. 

I set up my metal detector, beginning a short 15 ft. grid pattern. I got a nice signal on my third pass which turned out to be Steven’s platinum wedding band. He was ecstatic and surprised that it was more than 10 ft. from where he thought it would be. As usual he couldn’t believe how fast it was found. It has a lot to do with timing, also having the right tool (metal detector) for the right job.

I love being able to help people find things that are so important to them. .. I WILL TRY ANYWHERE 

Wedding Ring Lost on Santa Monica Pier on Day of Couple’s 2nd Wedding Anniversary…Found Joyfully Returned.

I received a call from Souja, she had lost her wedding ring on the Santa Monica pier. She and her husband Martin are from Austria, and were in Southern California celebrating their 2nd wedding anniversary, and this was the exact day. Needless to say she was very unhappy about the loss. They were scheduled to leave the next day for Northern California for the rest of their vacation and then home. They could not imagine leaving with out her ring; they had matching rings. I let them know when I would be there, and was on my way.

When I got there Souja and Martin with their little one, met me and showed me what had happened. They had been at a food vendor on the pier when her ring slipped off of her finger. She said she watched it drop, and heard it hit the pier, but it was gone in an instant. They looked all over the pier with no success, and then surmised that it possibly slipped through the boards into the sand below, so they went below and searched some more. Martin went up and dropped some coins through the boards of the pier to see if he could find them, and was able to, but not Souja’s ring. They searched for a total of about 3 hours. They found me on The Ring Finders site and called, pretty discouraged by now. I agreed that the possibility of it having gone into the sand was better than it being up on the pier, so I began the search under the pier. I began my grid, and found a dime, a penny and a piece of trash. I was on my second pass, when I got the tone I was looking for, I dug, and in my scoop was Souja’s wedding ring. I reached in and held it out for her; they were so surprised. The pleasure of being able to help people with their lost items has not diminished a little; check out those smiles. What a great day!

I got a call last night, Christmas night, from Charles who had lost his wedding ring at the beach earlier that day. He went to go surfing, and wisely took his ring off , and handed it to his wife for safekeeping (people lose a lot of rings in the water). She put the ring on her finger, but because it was much larger in size than her finger, somehow within the space of an hour it had slipped off and went into the soft sand to disappear. They had searched for it, and had not been able to find it, so they did a web search, and was able to find my site on the internet. I was visiting relatives, and had to get to my house to acquire my equipment, so I gave him an estimated time that I would be able to get to the area, and we arranged to meet.

Charles met me at the beach about 9:40 PM, and showed me the area his wife had been sitting. I began my search, and got one bottle cap, and one small piece of tin foil, happy to know that the beach was real clean of trash. About 2 grid passes more, and I had his ring in my scoop. So by about 10:00 PM Christmas night, he was wearing his wedding ring again. Charles was very happy, and told me that I had made his day. I knew that he and his wife would end this Christmas on a merrier note! Glad to have been a help.

Charles sent the following testimonial:

I gave my ring to my wife when going surfing in Malibu on Christmas Day, in the afternoon.
When asking her to give me back the ring, she realized she lost in in the sand as it slipped from her finger.
We searched in the sand for 30 minutes but were unable to find it. We finally drove back home later in the afternoon.
As searching on Internet for a solution, I ended up finding the Ringfinders website and emailing Steve. He answered super quickly and we met on the beach in Malibu around 9.30PM.
It only took him 10 minutes to find my ring. I was really happy with such a happy ending ! Thanks a million to Steve for this, a great, helpful and friendly professional.

Lost Hearing Aid after Being Attacked By Bees .. Sherman Oaks, CA. .. Found with Metal Detector

I received a call from James, who had lost a hearing aid in his yard when bees attacked him as he was doing yard work. He had rented metal detector and it was not able get signal from his other hearing aid. 

I was only a half hour from his home in Sherman Oaks which is part of the Los Angeles suburbs. We met and he was concerned that the bees may hamper my ability to search the hillside landscape. I was just happy that my high frequency metal detector could get a decent signal from an identical hearing aid.

The hillside was steep and was fairly free of vegetation. It was possible to search about 35 feet from the underground bees (wasps) nest without arousing them. After about a half hour with a few signals from pieces of wire and nails, I got a signal that turned out to be the missing hearing aid. 

I used a XP Deus metal detector with a 74 kHz high frequency coil that has been awesome for finding small gold and platinum stud earrings. It was a fun hunt and pleasure to help James find such an important item that he desperately missed after three days without his hearing aid.

If you lose a ring or other important metal item call ASAP .. “I WILL TRY ANYWHERE”
