Cinda called me today in the afternoon. She had been helping with a fundraising fair that was being put on by her children’s school. She had been in charge of the decorations, and like most people who volunteer, working hard to make the day a success. During the time she had been putting up some of the decorations she noticed to her disbelief that the center stone in her engagement ring was gone; a diamond at about 2 1/2 karats. The only thing that was in her favor was the fact that it was in a metal setting, even though it was no more than a stud earring, which are so very hard for a detector to find, because there is such a small amount of metal attached to it. She and her friends scoured the field where she had been working, and the areas she had concentrated on, but to no avail. She wanted to wait until the fair was over to begin the search, and I agreed to meet her then for the search.

When I got to the field, Cinda’s husband Mark met me, and took me up to meet Cinda. She showed me the field, and my heart dropped, it was huge, and the grass was pretty thick. Also I knew that I was going to have to check every signal which would slow me down considerably. I then began an inquiry to narrow down the search area if it was possible. Cinda believed that the best possible spot to begin the search was an area about 10×10 feet based on her friends best recollections regarding when they saw the stone in her ring, so I began there. I was getting signals, but they were all too deep to be her diamond. During my second pass, and after about 12 signals checked, I got another soft signal, and put the pin pointer in to check when it sounded off, and I could see the glimmer of the stone. I reached in, picked it up, and then looked for Cinda. She was working with people during the take down of the fair, so I began walking over. She had her back to me, but some of the ladies there realized I was going to her, and figured I might have found it. I showed them the stone, and then there was instant joyous chaos, everybody shouting, running around that the diamond was found. When Cinda realized what was going on she turned and came right over, and I put the jewel in her hand. She got very emotional, she had had that ring for 26 years, and it had great sentimental value to her. All I can say is, WHAT A BLAST! I was so happy help her out today.

Tim and his wife were at Venice Beach, CA.  for the day and walking off the beach to their car. When he put some trash in the trash can . Tim felt his gold wedding ring slip off his finger as he pulled his hand away. The ring fell into the sand disappearing immediately.

I received a call about 11:30 pm as I was driving home late that night. Tim apologized for calling that late, but I was totally ok with the call. It allowed us to set up a search time for the next morning when he could be there to show me the general location.

We met at a time that allowed us to evade the morning traffic rush. The area of the loss wasn’t in a location that the beach cleaning machines would have been a problem. 

When we met there was another obstacle. There was a movie crew set up exactly where we were going to search. The crew said it would be alright to do my search as I assured them it would be a short time.

I began my grid search and immediately had one 3’ x 3’ area that seemed to have a cement with rebar under 6’” under the sand. The metal detector could not work well with that interference. It might require hand sifting with my sand scoop. You never know what challenges can come up until getting to the search location. 

Just before having to resort to hand sifting the area that had metallic interference, I got a decent signal up against a wood piling in the sand. Boom!.. Tim’s ring in the scoop. About 8 0r 10 members of the movie crew witnessed the recovery, which gave me a chance to tell them about TheRingFinders.com.

Another fun recovery which, wasn’t as simple as I thought it might be. It was awesome to see how happy an grateful Tim and his wife were as they have this ring back where it belongs.

 

If you need to find a valuable lost in the sand call a person the has experience operating a metal detector. Also someone that can get to you in a timely manner. Call as soon as possible..

I was contacted last night by Linda. She had been at the beach with her 2 children enjoying the day. When they were ready to leave she realized her keys were gone, and she had to drive back to Phoenix, AZ. After looking unsuccessfully for her keys, she was able to find and contact me. I could tell she was very distraught at the thought she would be stranded in a strange place with her children, and told her I would be on my way immediately.

When I got to the beach it was already about 8:00 PM, but that does not make a difference, as I can search in the dark as well as the day. Linda led me out to the area where she and her children were playing. I asked a series of questions in order to narrow down the search area, and then began my grid. I was finding a lot of metal, bottlecaps, tin foil, etc. After about 7 passes, a really strong signal reverberated in my headphones. I dug, and could see something different in the scoop. I reached in and there were Linda’s keys. I held them up with my headlight shining on them, and she came running over with an overwhelming show of emotion and gratefulness. She went from despair to joy in an instant. What a blast to see this transformation occur!

Jennifer had been holding her husband’s gold wedding ring while he went swimming in the ocean at Huntington Beach, CA. When her husband, Blair returned he was told that by Jennifer that she had lost the irreplaceable heirloom ring that had been once belonged to his grandfather.

This type of ring loss seems to be a trend lately. The other ways people lose rings at the beach are setting the ring on the towel while putting on sunscreen or putting rings in cupholders of beach chairs. 

Blair went to the nearby concession stands trying to locate a metal detector and Jessica stayed with their kids getting on line where she located me on TheRingFinders website. I was 6 miles away but it took a little extra time to find parking as all the parking lots were full because of several special events. You never know what type obstacles that come up until arriving at the location. This time it only involved walking an extra quarter of a mile.

They were waiting patiently on the beach where the loss occurred, that’s a good thing. Jennifer pointed out where she had been playing with the kids in the sand. She had the ring on her finger and believed that’s where it came off. I started there and it was a quick find. Only two pieces of trash metal then the third signal was the special heirloom ring more than 70 years in the family. 

It was a great day to be able to help Jennifer and Blair find their ring. On that location of Huntington City Beach it would not have been there the next day. They use the best beach cleaning every night. Timing is very important on many beaches in the Los Angeles and Orange County beaches.

While I was on my way to meet with Gibreel in the previous post for the lost iPhone, I received a call from Bryan who had lost his wedding ring just about an hour before. It sounded like a good possibility of a recovery, so I let him know that I had a search to do before I could get out to where he was to do their search, but that I would be there. He was fine with the arrangement, because he had something he had to do in the mean time. I found the iPhone, and was on my way to Bryan.

Traffic was good, and I was able to get to the beach at the arranged meeting time. What had happened, was that Bryan and his wife were on the beach enjoying the evening, when it started to rain. They hurried to gather up all of their belongings to not let them get wet, when during the process Bryan flicked his hand, and his ring was instantly gone. They searched for about an hour before they decided to look for someone to help them. I am glad I was available and close. When I got there they showed me the area, and I could see that they had performed a good tight grid in the sand during their search. He showed me where he thought the ring might have flown because of the motion of his hand, so that is where I began my search. The ring was not there, and I kept the grid going. After a few passes I entered the middle of their grid area when I got a good signal, and let them know I believed I had found the ring. After scooping out the sand, I scooped once more into the dumped out sand, and inside was Bryan’s ring. I got a big hug from his wife and a hearty handshake from Bryan. They had only been married for 8 months, so the ring had a pronounced sentimentality for them. What a great ending of the day!

Lauren called me about two hours after her husband, Justin lost his gold wedding ring in the sand at Venice Beach, CA. It took a couple hours for Lauren to find me doing a google search for metal detector service.

Both of them met me on the beach about noon. Justin told me that he had put his ring in his jacket pocket while they went for a morning swim. He was sure the ring fell from the pocket as he picked up the jacket. 

This should have been a quick search except they were having a little difficulty locating the spot where they had laid their belongings. This is happens often, so I asked Justin to use my sand scoop to mark the area he believed the loss occurred. I also asked him if he recognized any items or trash. 

It was probably a 40 ft. square that Justin had marked off. I let him suggest the most probable side to start my grid search. After almost finishing that area. I began to search outside the marked location where Justin had noticed a piece of trash. It didn’t take but a few more minutes and I had received a great clear signal that turned out to be Justin’s ring. 

They were overjoyed and very grateful as it was getting a little discouraging after the first half hour. I knew the ring would eventually show up, it’s just a matter of eliminating one area at a time. Most people don’t understand or trust that a metal detector can find a item as small as a ring in a field of sand. It’s a matter of having the best metal detectors , knowing how to operate that equipment, having the experience and patience to search in all types of conditions.

It was a pleasure to meet and help Lauren and Justin. They were very grateful to have their wedding ring recovered..

Rudan has been a beach party at Corona del Mar State Beach, Newport Beach, CA. when he lost his car key in the sand. His friend contacted me asking my for help.

Rudan showed me a 20 ft. square area where he knew the loss occurred. He did tell me that his key was broken and just the small metal piece had fallen in the sand. He said it wasn’t any bigger than a pull tab that he saw in my scoop.

After doing a quick grid, I assumed that it may have fallen through my sand scoop. Starting a second pass over the same area, I slowed my sweeping speed and checking every small signal. Boom! The small key part showed up. 

Big smile from Rudan and relief that he didn’t have to go through the trouble to have his car towed. Generally lost keys in the sand a fairly easy to find with a metal detector. This was not easy. Every search has challenges

Eron contacted me about the keys to her new mailbox that had been lost in her front yard. She and her two year old son went out to get the mail, and on the way back to the house she let her son hold the keys. When they got back into the yard, she had to attend to something, and turned from her son for a minute, and when she turned back to him she noticed the keys were gone. She asked him where they were, and he told her he put them in a hole. She searched the grass for a couple of hours looking for where the keys might have been inserted into, but there was no hole in the area he was standing.

We arranged to meet, and when I got to the house, the grass was nice and groomed, and I could see no holes at all. I began my search, up, down, up, and down again, then I got the signal. I put in my pin pointer, and there in the deep thatch were the keys. The depth of the thatch, Eron’s son perceived as a hole. She was very happy to have the keys back. She did not want her picture taken, so you get mine.:-)

I got a call about 8:30 PM from Josh about his phone that he had lost earlier at the beach. He had been wrestling around with some friends with his phone in his pocket, and when they were done, the phone was gone. I got on my way immediately so as to do the search before the city beach cleaning machines come out to clean the beach.

When I got there Josh showed me the area, and I could see that he and his friends had been gridding the area by dragging their feet through the sand, but were unable to find the phone. I proceeded to grid the same area, and found that the phone was not there, so it was time to expand the search area. I went one way with no luck, then I began another grid in another direction, when I got a good long signal, put the scoop in, and his phone was in the scoop. Josh was very relieved to not have to buy a new phone!

Merry had realized that her custom gold ring was missing while spending the afternoon on one of the small coves in Laguna Beach, CA. She had been playing with her dog on the upper beach and also throwing a frisbee lower on the beach near the surf line.

After a couple hours searching the dry sand with no success, she was able to contact me using a google search. I was able to meet her on the beach before she had to leave.  Merry told me that this was a very special ring that was given to her years ago, celebrating a very important day in her life. It worried her because she had not felt the ring leave her finger and it was a large search area.

After hearing her story, I felt the most likely place to start was where she had spent the most time. The area where she was throwing the frisbee seemed the best place to lose a ring, that would be next. The area had large rocks and driftwood that could be challenging.

We were lucky to start in the right location and it only took a few minutes swing my detector coil over a sting solid signal. One scoop about 6 inches deep and a beautiful unique custom gold ring was clanking in the bottom of my scoop.

Merry was standing just a few feet from me. She heard the heavy metal banging in my scoop. I held the scoop close enough for her to see her precious ring inside. An instantly she  screamed with joy and a big smile.

It was a great search that went well. With all the obstacles and a large search area it could been much more difficult. Every search is an adventure.
