I got a call from Bryan last night. He had lost his iPhone at the beach earlier, and was in desperate need of assistance. He had buried it earlier in order to go in the water and not have to worry about someone walking off with it. It happened to be a work phone, and he was on a business trip from out of state, scheduled to leave today with the boarding pass on the phone. I told him I would be there as soon as possible, so as not leave the phone there until the morning when the county sifting machines would go through, and the phone would be forever gone.

When I got there Bryan took me to the area of the loss, and I could see he had spent a good amount of time gridding the area, but without any luck. I started my search, and on my first pass, got a large signal, dug a little, and retrieved Bryan’s phone. He was very happy, but did not want his picture taken, so as not to be known for losing his company’s phone; understood.

I got an email from Jeremy on Sunday night. He had lost his wedding ring at a sports park the day before in the grass, and was not able to find it. He had removed it, and placed it in the cup holder of his chair to apply sunscreen, a story we hear all too often for sure. I let him know I was available the next day if he could meet me to show me where to look. We agreed on a time, and the meeting was set.

When I arrived Jeremy was waiting for me, and took me right over to the area. He showed me what he had done, and how he had left the field, so I knew where I would be looking. Also knowing this was a relatively new field, I did not expect a lot of metal to be there (foil, bottle caps, pull tabs, etc). That was the wrong assumption for sure, it seemed like there was something almost every swing of the coil that I had to check. A lot of fencing from the field perimeter was in the ground, and giving off a real good signal. This made for a slow search, as I covered the area. I searched all that Jeremy had showed me, and it was now time to expand the search out of the box. I searched into one field with no results, and then went over to the other field, got a good signal, looked down, and there on the surface of some dead grass was the ring. It was white gold which reflected the true color of its surrounding, so it was pretty much camouflaged right in the open. Jeremy had to go back to work, so I called, and he came right over very happy for the recovery. As a member of The Ring Finders, it is a pleasure to create these smiles!

DJ called me because he had lost his wedding ring and special coin at the beach the day before, and was wondering if I could help him. We talked about the loss, and where on the beach the loss happened, and I was very pessimistic of being able to make a recovery because detectorists ply that area daily, as well as the coverage of the County beach cleaners. I wasn’t giving him much hope of a recovery because of the area he initially told me the loss occurred. As we further discussed the loss, it came to be that it happened in an area further away from his original disclosure. I then felt there was some hope feeling that maybe all of the factors that would have caused the ring and coin to be gone did not add up. We arranged to meet at about 11:30 PM to conduct the search because I did not want any more time to go by, taking away any other possible factors that would make the recovery impossible.

When we met at the beach, DJ, his wife, and friend took me out to the area they believed the loss to have occurred. It is very hard in the darkness to locate landmarks, and decide how far a person was from the water depending on tides as well. They gave their best estimate, and I began my search. As I was doing my grid, they were examining further down the beach to see if maybe we were in the wrong area. After about 4 passes, DJ came to me thinking I should maybe work in the area further in the direction they were looking. It was not more than 20 feet away, so I told him that I was searching in that direction, and should just continue the grid so as to not miss any possibility. Then when I got to the end of that grid pass, at about 12:00 AM, that sweet gold sound in the head phones. As I scooped, I saw the chain everything was attached to drape down along my scoop, and knew we had success. DJ’s wife looked over when I reached down to recover the ring and coin, and came over expectantly. I put it behind my back and asked if they still wanted me to move over to other spot, and then brought the chain with the ring and coin out, she just beamed. They were so excited, being married just about 1 year, and thinking the ring was gone forever. It was surely a special recovery, having been lost the day before in a highly searched area. A great night for sure!

I received a call yesterday from Jon, he was on vacation with his family from Texas. They took a trip to the beach to enjoy their last day in California before flying home. He was out in the surf amongst the breakers, when he got hit by a wave that knocked his ring off of his finger into the churning surf. Shocked to realize his ring was gone, he began trying to find it with goggles on, and the breaking waves moving him all around. He spent about 3 hours searching before he found me on The Ring Finders web site. When he called I asked my general questions, and after he said he did not think he was too deep, I let him know I would be there soon.

When I got there Jon met me, and took me over to the area of the loss. He explained what had happened, and how deep he thought he was. The problem was that the tide was coming in, and now 3 hours later was probably out of reach for me, by the look of the breaking waves. I did a search the best I could out in the surf, with not even a signal, it had been too long, so I told Jon, I would come back at 3:00 AM today when the tide would be at its lowest for the day and do another search. I let him know he would be welcome to meet me if he was so inclined, and he accepted the invitation. I got to the beach a little before 3:00 AM and began my search. About 10 minutes later Jon, his wife, and Father in Law came over to where I was searching. I had a couple of faint signals that caused me to dig deep thinking the ring had sunk deep into the soft sand, only to come up empty. Then a couple of passes later I was out in the water about knee deep when I received a good strong signal, dug, rinsed, and there in the bottom of my scoop was Jon’s ring. For the ring to still be knee deep showed that Jon had been much deeper than he originally believed because of today’s 1.3 minus tide. I walked right over to them and presented it to him, to which they were all surprised. So by 3:30 AM Jon had his ring of 10 years back on his finger. He told me he thought it had been gone for good, and that is why we do what we do, to find that which people thought they would never get back, and produce such great smiles. So thankful to make a happy ending to their California vacation, and make their trip back to Texas a pleasurable one!

Yael called explaining that she had lost the ring her mother had given her, in the sand at the beach. She had taken it off, and put it on the blanket they laid out, but forgetting that she had put the ring on the blanket, she picked the blanket up and shook it out. At that point it was too late, the ring was gone. I let her know I would be there as soon as possible, because they were still there, and possibility of a recovery was good.

When I got to the area Yael showed me what had happened, and the possible vicinity of the lost ring. I got my detector ready, and decided to start at the outer part of the perimeter. I turned my machine on, took two swings, got the tone, put the scoop in, and within 10 seconds was able to hand Yael her ring back. It doesn’t always happen like that, but I just happened to chose the right place to start. Needless to say Yael was overjoyed to have her precious ring back again. I was so happy to have been able to be able to give back something she thought was lost forever. Really a great day!

Jonny’s friend called me today to see if I was available to come and look for Jonny’s lost wedding ring. They had been at the beach playing catch with a Frisby when as he was going for a catch he felt his ring come off of his hand, watched it fly past his face, he even heard it hit the sand, and it was gone in an instant. He and his friends searched all over the sand with no luck. They found me on the Internet, and called. I asked a few questions, and from everything they told me, it sounded like we would have a successful recovery today. I let them know I would be there as soon as possible, and was on my way.

When I got to the beach, I walked out looking for Jonny. As I got to the slope down to the water I noticed a guy looking around in the sand, and figured he was the gentleman I was looking for. Jonny looked up and came right over. He then explained what had happened, and showed me the Frisby they placed in the area they believed the ring to be. I began my search to the South of the Frisby working North in the direction Jonny had been moving when the ring was lost. I searched out to about 30 feet with no ring. Then went back to the starting position, and began to work to the South of the Frisby. After about 2 passes I got a good strong signal, and there I could see just a slight gimmer shinning through the sand. I reached down, and to Jonny’s disbelief Held up his wedding ring. He had not been married a year yet, so this loss was very sentimental, as he had not had the ring very long. Needless to say he was very happy, and I was happy to have had the pleasure to make his day!

Jonny sent the following testimonial:

Steve at Ring Finders is simply put, “A God-Send.” He is an old school type of guy who is all about helping people out; a “golden rule” type of guy, you do not find people like Steve anymore. I am thankful for Steve at Ring Finders and the miracle he can provide for locating lost treasures. Here is my story: A few days ago, on Friday, May 24thI was on the beach in Hermosa tossing the Frisbee around with some friends and I went running after a long pass. When I was in stride chasing after the Frisbee, I felt my wedding ring go flying off my finger, I heard the ring hit the sand, and in a matter of seconds, the ring disappeared in the sand. My heart dropped, and all I could think of was how pissed off my wife was going to be because the ring was going to be gone forever. I had four friends on their hands and knees in the sand trying to help me find my ring, and after about 30 minutes of looking I felt hopeless, I felt like giving up, cursing left and right to myself that the ring is gone. Someone brought up a metal detector, then someone else looked on their phone and found Steve at Ring Finders. Steve said he would be there as soon as possible to help us try and find the ring. My friends had to leave the beach, but I was still looking and waiting for Steve to arrive. I thought to myself, this guy isn’t going to even come, and if he does come, he isn’t going to find my ring, there is no way. Steve ended up arriving about 45 minutes later (the time he said he would be to the beach) and I explained the situation to him and where the ring could be. I asked him what the probability of him finding the ring was, he simply said, “if it is in this area, and you didn’t move from this area, I will 100 percent find it.” About 10 minutes into the search, Steve found my wedding ring, he bent down and picked up and I thought, no way, no way, I cannot believe he found my ring. I asked him what I owed him, he said, “if you want to give me a reward, you can.” I gave him a big hug, shook his hand, thanked him a hundred times, and give him all the money I had in my wallet, $37.” I just want to personally thank Steve at Ring Finders, and let people out there know, that Steve is the real-deal, and if you lost a wedding ring, or any other prized possession, Steve will find it. Thanks again Steve, I am so grateful that you found my wedding ring, God Bless ya!

Kathleen contacted me about her lost phone. She had lost it the day before at the beach while sitting in the sand. She had gone to the beach with her dog, and was sitting watching the waves, and when she got up, her phone came out of her pocket. It was too late when she realized it was gone. With something that big in such a high trafficked area, I don’t always have a lot of hope of a recovery after a full day of loss. Kathleen told me that the “Find My iPhone” app was telling her the phone was still there, so my hopes of a recovery were buoyed, and we arranged to meet for the search.

When I got to the beach, I met Kathleen, and she took me out to the spot where the loss occurred. She showed me where she remembered sitting, and I began my search. I covered the area without finding the phone, so she then thought she might have been sitting lower down the slope to the water. I figured the phone would have been covered by the previous high tide if lost there, and was wondering if it would have been sending a signal. I did the search down the slope, and got a good strong signal, dug, and about 4 to 6 inches down there was her phone, STILL WORKING! There had been at least 2 high tides to cover the phone, and it was still alive; amazing. Needless to say Kathleen was very happy to have her phone back, and I was happy to make her day.

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.:-)

Last Sunday I got a call from a young lady who had taken her 3 rings (2 18K, and 1 platinum) off at the beach, and placed them on her towel. When she and her friends went to leave they picked up everything and walked off, forgetting the rings were on the towel. They went back and searched desperately for her rings after realizing what had happened, but could not find them. They called me about 6:00 PM to see if I could do a search for them. I said I would be happy to, and told them when I could be there, but they decided to search some more, before having me come out. Well they did not call me out for the search until about 8:30 PM, and I left right away.

I got to the area about 9:30 PM, but was unable to get parking because the streets shut down at 10:00 PM, so I had to park about 1 mile North and walk back. I got to the area shown by the directions they had given me, and started my search; it was just me and the beach at that time of night. By 11:00 I had her rings in my hand, and was able to text her of a successful hunt. We got together yesterday for the ring return, and she was very happy to have her rings back, one of which had been her mother’s. A great hunt!

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!
