Sentimental gold earring lost in Ottawa

  • from Ottawa (Ontario, Canada)
We received a message regarding a lost earring. Last Tuesday she was working in her garden when she got tangled up in the fencing. Her earring got caught, fell and disappeared. Her parents had bought them for her and they meant a lot.
She rented a metal detector but struggled with overhead wires and interference. Once she reduced the sensitivity, it could no longer pick it up. She found us on The Ring Finders and we were on our way.
We gridded a small area a good three times each, we expanded our search even further than we believe it could have gone. The garden gate had metal posts and it was even difficult for our pinpointers to scan around them. We spent 1 hour and still nothing. We cut some of the flowers down hoping we can get in closer to the ground. Another 20 minutes passed and still nothing. I went back to where she was when she got tangled up, I had a -7 ringing in at a depth of 8” but I heard a double tap, with a jumpy bit of a signal. The signal wasn’t registering as a surface item but the double tap told me to investigate. I heard my pinponter go off, I move the grass and there it was upside down with the stem up. Under my breath I said oh no, no way! Picking it up showing her I found it!
Super happy she placed the earring back in it’s case with the other one! Another happy ending.
I do have to admit, this had to be one of the most difficult recoveries but I wasn’t going to give up and sure enough it was found

Lost 14k Gold Wedding Ring Found In The Water In Ottawa Ontario!

  • from Ottawa (Ontario, Canada)

We received an early call this morning and met up with a loving couple. They have been married for 40 years and have twin wedding bands! She took an early swim this morning and was standing in water waist high. She was showing a friend on how she just had her ring resized. As she tried to remove it the ring stopped at her knuckle, as she tugged harder the ring flew off and into the water. They searched for an hour with no luck finding it. The husband did a quick search online and found us on The Ring Finders website. We knew that the sooner we arrive the better chance we had at finding that ring. They were able to show us exactly where it happened. The beach was filling up quickly and soon we had an audience. It was a bit of a struggle to see anything we were doing. The pond had a fine sand that would dust up and disrupted our view. We had to feel for our metal detector coil with our foot and try to scoop it up with no visibility. Eric handed me over the scoop after several attempts on a signal chest deep. He decided to head down under the water to try to locate that signal. After a few attempts he comes up with a handful of sand and the glitter of gold! Another successful ring return!

  • from Ottawa (Ontario, Canada)

We received a call from Martial, yesterday he was at the park with his adorable son. His son had some grass on him, when he tried wiping off the grass from his sons clothing. He felt the ring slip off his finger.. He spent a lot of time searching the thick grass with no luck and had to return home to tell his wife. She was pretty sad about it. Today he decided to do some research and found us online, we received his call for help and we met up with him at the London Terrace Park in Ottawa Ontario. He didn’t tell his wife that he called us and hoped to surprise her, he showed me the general area where it was lost. I did a few small passes and within 10 minutes I found his ring! He was so excited to go home and wave to his wife to see if she would noticed he had his ring back!
