I received a call from Jamie who had lost two rings. She had put them in her child’s rash guard pocket while applying sunscreen, and before she knew it, the boy was off into the water swimming and splashing around as deep as he could go. I told her I would come to do the search, and would leave as soon as possible.

When I got there Jamie met me, and showed me where the loss occurred, and the tide was retreating, but it was not going to be optimal. I began my search going into the surf as deep and close to the breakers as was possible for a recovery. The breakers were strong. I searched for about 30 minutes, and received a good signal about waist deep in the surf, dug a couple of times, and retrieved Jamie’s diamond wedding band. I was encouraged, as I continued to search for the other ring. I searched the whole area she was concerned about, and began to search out of the box, I continued my search until the incoming tide forced an end. I went back the next day to look again, but no luck on the second ring. I then went back another day, when the tide went into the minus stage at about 2:00 AM, but still no luck. I will be going back when I think conditions have benefitted the possibility of a recovery, but I was thankful to have been able to get one of the rings for her.  I do enjoy this service.

Matthew contacted me regarding the loss of his wife’s ring. They were at a friend’s house for 4th of July, out on the backyard deck that overlooks the city watching fireworks, when she removed her ring and it dropped in the darkness. This was a ring her mother had given her, so it had a strong sentimental value. She heard it hit the deck, and then it was gone. They searched for it in the darkness thinking it may have gone through one of the cracks in the deck because it is a thin ring, or gone over the side into the leaves and brush. We made arrangements to meet later in the day for the search.

I got to the house, and met Matthew and his wife. They showed me what had happened, and where she was standing when the ring dropped. It was close to the side where there was a chain link fence closely positioned to the retaining wall that the deck was built on. I began my search under the deck to eliminate that area as a possibility. I then went into the area between the fence and the wall which was only about 2 feet wide narrowing down to about 8 inches at the bottom which was thick with dead leaves. I could not use my detector, because of the closeness of the chain link fence, nor could I use my standard pin pointer for the same reason. I had to use a special pin pointer in order to get close to the fence without getting false readings. I worked that area moving along slowly, finding pieces of the fence from when it was installed. I searched about 8 feet when one of the signals turned out to be the ring. When I brought it out of the leaves, Matthew who was watching from the deck above could not believe it was found. I handed it to him, and he handed it to his wife. They were both very happy, and it was great to see her smile after getting the ring back.

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 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”

Yesterday Willy called and asked if I could help him find his ring. He had been with friends at the beach having a fire a few days earlier, when he touched the hot fire grate. As soon as the pain registered he flipped his hand with a natural reaction. Unfortunately the ring his girlfriend had given him flew off his finger and was gone. We arranged to meet at the spot when he was available, which was later in the afternoon.

I got there at the appointed time, and Willy took me down to the beach and showed me where and how the loss occurred. I began my search realizing there were a whole lot of bottle caps, and other unwanted metal discarded in the surrounding area. I dug everything in order to not allow any masking to hide what I was looking for. I searched all around the area finding a bunch of trash metal but no ring. Willy’s friend suggested trying in an area that was in a completely opposite direction of where the loss might have occurred, and I went over to try, because looking out of the box sometimes is the road to a recovery. The ring was found in that new area not long after I started searching there, and I was able to give it back to Willy, who was real joyful about the recovery. A wonderful recovery for sure!

Cynthia, Eric’s wife called me today about the loss of Eric’s cell phone and two sets of keys including his car key. He had gone surfing, and to hide his valuables, he buried them in the sand. When it was time to go though, he was unable to find them. I was available, and let them know I would get there as soon as traffic allowed.

When I arrived, we found each other at the populated beach. I could see where Eric had been looking. He had cleared an area about 12 ft by 12 ft, and about 6 to 8 inches deep. I could tell he had been working very hard to find his keys and cell phone, at least a couple of hours of digging on a very hot day, but was not able to find the belongings. I began my search going over all that he had uncovered, and his stuff was not there. As soon as I started searching out of the area, I got a solid signal, and dug with my hands in order to not damage the cell phone, and had the items in my hand in seconds. needless to say, Eric and Cynthia were very surprised and very happy to have their keys and phone back. I was so happy to have been able to help them. It was surely a great day!

Katy contacted me yesterday about a ring she lost the night before. It was her wedding ring. She had been shaking her hand in the driveway when both her wedding ring and engagement rings flew off of her finger into the grass next to the driveway. She and her husband searched for the rings, and were able to find the engagement ring, but not the wedding ring. I was finishing up breakfast, and let her know I would be there as soon as I got my equipment together, and hopped on the road. Katy was not going to be able to be there, but had a babysitter that I would be able to give her ring to when it was found.

When I got to the house I let the babysitter know that I was going to begin my search. Katy had sent me some pictures of the area along with some explanation of what had happened which helped to focus the search area. I began where she had marked the asphalt showing where she had been standing while shaking her hand, and worked out from there. From what she had told me I figured she had been facing the street, and shaking her hand out towards the grass, so I focused my search out in the yard, and into a planter that was in the middle of the yard. I then began to work out towards the street in the grass. The ring was not there, so I went back to the starting point and started working in the opposite direction back towards the fence line, when about 12 feet back I got a nice solid signal, and looked down to find the ring sitting on the surface, waiting for a lawnmower to come along and destroy it. Katy was not able to be there for the return, so I got in the photo instead. She did let me know how happy she was that the ring was found. I do enjoy reinstating smiles for people!

Russ called yesterday requesting my assistance in finding his wedding ring. He was out in the yard with his son 3 days earlier at about 9:00 PM, when with the flick of his wrist his ring flew off of his finger. Because it was dark he was not able to see which direction the ring went, but was able to hear it hit the concrete driveway and roll. He had spent the last few days raking the flower beds trying to find the ring, without luck. I told him I would come right away.

When I got to his house, Russ took me over to the area of the loss, and I had him reenact what had happened. He showed me where he had been searching, and explained how he had conducted his search. I went over the flower beds with a quick search, not finding his ring. What I did find was that the area was littered with a ton of BB’s from previous target practice in the area, so I went over the area again at a slower pace. Not finding the ring again I began to expand the search area in the same direction of the wrist flip, but was unable to find the ring. I then began to search in the other direction in the flower beds with no luck also. Russ then had to run an errand, so I went totally out of the box and began to search opposite of the sound Russ had heard the other night, and on the other side of the driveway under a bush in the exact other direction I found Russ’ ring. I left it where I found it, so I could show Russ that rings can have a “mind” of their own when it comes to getting lost. When he got back and I showed him his ring he was very surprised that it could have ended up where it did, but was extremely happy to have it back. What a great day!

I received a call from David; he lost his wedding ring at the beach, and although he knew the small area in which it was lost, was unable to find it. I asked a few questions, and let him know that I would come immediately so as to not let time work against the recovery of his ring.

When I got to where they were sitting at the beach, I could see where they had been looking because of the grid marks in the sand. I then asked David to show me what happened, and from then I began my search. I swung once over some flip flops, and got a good signal, but noticed they had small buckles on them, so I moved them to another area. I swung again, and received the same signal, dug once, and had David’s ring in my scoop. It seems as though they had placed the flip flops right over the ring as they searched for it. David was very happy to have his ring back, and I was happy to have made his day!
