I got a call from Nuna, she had been running on the beach, when a great dane dog came running full speed at her and collided with her knocking her down. When she got up she realized that the collision was so extreme, her earring was dislodged from her ear and lost somewhere in the sand. This earring was part of a set, that was originally her mother’s who had passed away a few years prior, so the recovery of this piece of jewelry was  very important to her. I left right away.

We met up at the beach after I arrived, and walked over to spot of the loss. The lifeguards had raked the area over real well, as the sand was smoothed out over a 30 by 30 foot patch of sand. I began my search, and began finding some odds and ends like bottle caps and foil, but no earring. I just continued my grid making sure I covered every inch of the area. I showed Nuna the items I had found, and continued the search. Then as she was coming back from talking with one of the lifeguards, I got a good gold sound in the headphones, scooped, and had her earring. I pulled it out of the scoop and held it up so she could see it, and she came over in disbelief. She thought as many do, that her sentimental item was lost forever, but we as members of The Ring Finders are here to do our best to make sure that isn’t the case. So glad to have made Nuna’s day, and give her reason to smile; GREAT DAY!

Bryan contacted me the other day regarding the loss of a pendant he wore around his neck. He had been playing football in the sand at the beach, when as a result of an attempted tackle, the necklace that held the pendant came apart, and the pendant was engulfed by the sand. He told me that it had high sentimental value, and it would mean a lot to him if I was able to find it. I let him know that I was on my way, and would let him know when I arrived.

When I got to the area, I began walking out on the sand, and Bryan met me and walked me over to the spot of the loss. I could see where he and his friends had been combing the sand with their hands and feet. We talked about what had happened, and how it happened, so that I had a good idea of where I should begin my search. I also asked what I was looking for, and Bryan said, “a silver bullet”. I began a grid, and worked it to the outer edge of where they had been searching. I did not find the “bullet”, so I began searching the other side when I got a strong signal and dug. In the scoop was a key, and as I usually do I held it up for Bryan to see, and let him know it was just a key. I was getting ready to put into my finds bag when he came up and said, “wait, that key was also on the necklace”. I then ran the detector over the spot again with another good signal coming through. I scooped again, and in the scoop was a cylindrical shaped pendant, but not a bullet. When I pulled it out Bryan got so very emotional and said, “You have no idea what this means to me”, so I asked if he would let me know. He told me his father had passed away a couple of years ago, and this cylinder held a portion of his ashes. At this point I realized how important this recovery was to Bryan. He was so relieved, and I was very happy to have been able to help; a great day!

Aki called last night very concerned. Her wedding ring had been lost at her daughter’s school, in the sandy play area. I found out after arriving that her very young daughter had taken her ring with her to school to wear, and while she was in the play area, lost it while swinging her arm. I was close, and let Aki know that I would be there soon, and left.

I got to the school, and met Aki and her daughter. She took me over to the area where the ring had been lost. I then questioned the daughter to find out exactly had happened. She rehearsed what she did, and how the ring was lost, so I began my search. I searched all of the area that I was shown, and went over it a second time to make sure I had not missed anything, but found no ring. I then expanded my search further and further out. I went to the left side and then to the right, but no ring. There was a lot of iron in the ground that was making the search difficult. I expanded out further and did an extra one over to the expanded area. It was getting dark, and I had done the area pretty well until in between the iron I heard the good signal. I scooped up the sand and there in the bottom of the scoop was Aki’s ring. It was too dark for Aki to know I had found the ring, but I reached in and walked it over to her, holding it up so she could see it when it was within eyesight. As soon as she saw the ring she brandished a big smile, but then was overcome with emotion, she was so happy. To give so much happiness and relief to someone is such a pleasure!

Brad called the other day about his lost ring. He, his wife and some friends were at the beach throwing a football around. When it was thrown to him, he reached out to catch it, and the ball hit his hand and his ring went flying. They searched for quite sometime before calling, but I was able to leave right away to get there to perform the search.

When I arrived, I found Brad, and we talked about what had happened. He showed me the area, the way he was standing, and the direction the ball had hit his hand. Looking over the sand I could tell there had been a lot of digging for the ring. I began my search, not hearing any signals (this beach is sifted daily by the county, and very clean), but continued my grid. Finally on my second pass, I got a signal, and in the scoop was Brad’s ring. I reached in and then held it up for him to see, as he came running over with his wife. She looked at me and with a glint in her eye said, “it was a good thing you found the ring, I was getting ready to file an annulment”, and then laughed. I found out they had only been married 2 months, so this loss would have meant a lot to them. So happy to have made their day!

Alfonso called, and explained how he and his friend Robert had been at the beach, and lost their car key. it was Robert’s key, and the only one he had. In fact they told me that it had broken off of the remote, and was just the key with no “handle” to grab onto. What had happened was, they were going to go in the water, so Robert placed the key in his sock, which he never did. When they left the beach after shaking the sand out of their clothes, and got back to the car, Robert realized the key was gone. It was about 5:00 PM, and the private parking garage the car was in closed at 6:00 PM, so they hurried back to find the key but to no avail. They lived a considerable distance away, so they had to rent a hotel room for the night and were going to find a locksmith in the morning to help them. After they were quoted over $600 to cut a new key, and that it would take a couple of days, and also that the parking garage manager said if the car wasn’t removed by the end of the day he would have it towed, they searched the internet, found and called me. I told them I would be there in 45 Minutes.

When I got to the beach Robert and Alfonso met up with me and took me out to the spot they had been the previous day. They showed me what they did, and where they had been sitting. I then started my search. I gridded in the direction I was first shown, and would go in the other direction when I had completed my first grid. After about 15 minutes, and a few bottle caps, pennies, and foil, I got a good signal and had the key in my scoop. I held it up to an overjoyed Robert, who now knew he was going to be able to get his car out of the parking garage, and go home. Yes needless to say he was very happy. It was great to see two happy smiling faces!

Austin called a couple of days ago asking for help in finding his ring. He had been at the beach, and wanted to go in the water, which is what he did. He came out of the water and as he walked back to his belongings he started shaking his hands to remove the water as he walked along. When he got back to his towel, he realized his ring was gone. He did remember it being on his finger when he came out of the water, but now it was gone. I happened to be coming back from my son’s college and asked if he would be able to wait for me to get home and get my equipment, and he said he could. I then said I would be there as soon as possible and let him know when I arrived.

When we finally met up, Austin took me over to where he had been, and where he believed he had shaken his ring off of his hand. I then began a close grid making sure I covered every inch. I found numerous  pieces of metal, bottle caps, foil, and some coins, but no ring, so I expanded my search area. Austin continued to show me where he might have been as my search area expanded. I started to work more towards the water, and he kept saying he believed the ring to have come off in the other direction, but I asked if he would just allow me to search a little more in the direction I was going, I would go in the other direction after. As he was looking over on the other side of the search area, I got a good signal, dug and had his ring in my scoop. I then called him over to ask him again about where he might have been when the ring came off, and as he started explaining again, I held up his ring. He looked over and saw it, and did a double take; he could not believe it was found, and that it was all the way over where I had found it. I let him know that we sometimes have to go “out of the box” sometimes to find what people thought was lost forever. This ring is very special to him, his wife has a matching one. So glad to have made his day!

Mary Ellen contacted me yesterday about an earring she lost in her backyard. She remembered walking down the walkway to her garage when one of the overhanging plants caught her earring and then it was gone. These were her mother’s earrings, so they held a special place in her heart. We talked a bit, I asked some pertinent questions, and we scheduled to meet this morning to search her garden area.

I got to her house, and she came out right away and took me back to the area of the loss. She then showed me how she had been walking on the walkway, and the plants that snagged her earring to pull it off. There was some thick ground cover, that could have swallowed up an earring in a second. I began my search, and fortunately found that there wasn’t a lot of metal in the ground, which I have found to be very uncommon over the years. I had a few good signals, but they were too deep for what I was looking for. I got another good signal, and while moving the groundcover around noticed the glint of gold. I pushed the greenery aside, and there was the lost earring. I walked it right over to Mary Ellen, and she seemed very relieved to have it back. This made her day, and made mine as well to see her smile!

I got a call from Axtlan’s mother. It seems he had been working out at the old Muscle Beach, climbing the ropes, and working on some of the other equipment, and lost his car key in the sand. It hadn’t been too long, and I wasn’t very far from there, so I told her I would come right away.

When I got there they showed me the 3 possible areas the loss could have occurred, and I got to work. I searched the first one, and no key. I then went to the second one, no key. Finally I searched the third spot, no key. I told them I would expand the search, but also asked if they had checked the nearby snack stand to see if someone might have found it and turned it in, and they hadn’t. I encouraged them to do so, and they seemed a bit apprehensive, I guess feeling the key would not have been turned over, and because it was a little out of the way, but I pressed the issue, letting them know that I would expand my search of the key in the mean time. Axtlan decided to walk over to check, and on his way over, he found the key sitting on top of a bench. Someone had found the key and placed it there hoping the owner would find it. Axtlan and his mother told me he would not have walked that way if I had not pressed the issue, and needless to say were very happy with the outcome. Always glad to help!

I woke up the other day to an email from William who explained that his wife’s wedding and engagement rings were lost in the garden of a local hotel. They had just come from a celebration, and his wife had taken off her rings and given them to William to hold, when in a moment of play he decided to toss them over his shoulder, not thinking of the ramifications of the rings going into the bushes and ground cover. They searched, but it was at night and it very hard to see. I answered his email, and he called shortly after. We decided to meet at the hotel when he had a break from his job.

When I got there, about 4:00 PM, William was already there, and he took me over to the area, and went over what had happened. I began a search with the detector, but found that there was too much metal to be able to get a good search in. I then brought out the pin pointer to do a slow grid in the shrubbery, and began from the side of the hand he thrown the rings with. As I was searching William could not believe it, he found the diamond solitaire at the edge of the shrubs on the sidewalk, in full view of anyone who would have walked by since the night before. Fortunately no one saw the ring. I then decided to focus my attention to the area he found the first ring, and worked it well with the pin pointer. After finding some bottle caps, foil, and other metallic objects, I received another signal. I pushed aside the leaves and grass, and there it was, the second ring. Anyway, needless to say, William was very grateful, and relieved to know that he could go home with the rings he had lost the night before. A lot of fun helping people get things right.

Later Monday night after I had found the ring at Hermosa Beach, Feliz called me about a ring she lost at Manhattan Beach. She had been there earlier in the day, and gone in the water, but before doing so, she wisely removed her ring and placed it in her jacket pocket. After coming out of the water, and forgetting that she had placed the ring in the jacket pocket, she moved things around, and left the beach. It wasn’t until a couple of hours later at the gym that she realized her ring was missing. Someone she knew had found The Ring Finders site on the internet, and told her about us, where she was able to contact me. She told me the ring had special meaning to her, and she would appreciated it I could help her find it. I said I would be there in 30-40 minutes.

When I got there we met, and Feliz took me down to the beach to show me where she had been. The problem was that it was a little after 8:00 PM, and in the darkness it was difficult for her to find any landmarks that could help her find exactly where she had been sitting, so she gave me a pretty good swath of beach to go over. I knew I would be finding quite a lot of things just because of so much sand to cover, and was hoping she would not get too discouraged with the search. As I anticipated I found a lot of bottle caps, foil, some coins, and other metal, but no ring. She looked at photos she had taken while she was at the beach earlier, and we were able to figure out approximately where she was sitting in regards to the towel line, so I expanded my search. For most of this time Feliz had been looking herself, and also coming over to see what I had found, but then she just went over and sat down. I have seen this level of discouragement set in on a long search, but I know from experience that until you have covered every base, the search is not over. I kept working out, away from the slope, when one more good signal. I scooped it up and there was the ring. I grabbed it and called out to Feliz. She jumped up and ran over. When she saw the ring, and identified it as the one she lost earlier, she immediately broke down with emotion. She explained that the ring was her father’s, a man she so adored, and he had passed from this life just one month ago; my heart broke. This ring was something of his that she would wear to allow her to be close to him, and to lose it…well, I just can’t put that into words. What a wonderful day Monday was, and some awesome smiles. So glad to have been able to help Feliz restore her joy.
