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!

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.

A couple of days ago I received a call from Terisa about the loss of her Mercedes electronic car key. She had gone to the beach to relax, and laid out her blanket on the slope to the water to enjoy the sun and pleasantness of the ocean. She tucked her key in her waist band and laid down. When she awoke from a sleep she enjoyed her key was gone. It must have come out while sleeping and moving around. She searched, and others in the area helped, but were unable to find the key. I let her know that I would be there as soon as possible.

When I got to the area Terisa was unable to meet me there, so I was going to with the information she gave me to figure out where to start my search. As I was searching a gentleman came over to inform me that a lady had lot her car key earlier and was wondering if I could help. I let him know that was why I was there, and he proceeded to show me where the actual search area was. He was one of those who helped Terisa earlier in the day. I could see the drag marks in the sand where they had dragged their feet and hands in the sand hoping to feel the key. The sand moves so much when you search in that manner, it usually moves the object out of the way. I began my search, and during the second pass got a real strong signal, dipped the scoop in and out came Terisa’s key. She wasn’t able to meet for the return until the next day, so I got down there, let her know that I had arrived, and did a little metal detecting while I waited (always good to keep practiced up). When She arrived she was very happy to have the key back, and I was very happy to have made her day!

I was sitting at home when I received a call from David, he said that he had lost his wedding ring at the beach earlier and wondered if I could come to find it for him. The ring had been left with their belongings on the towel, when, then his wife Maria picked up something on the towel and the ring was swallowed up by the sand. He said he and his wife had not moved from the area of the loss, and would remain there until I came. It seemed as though they were doing everything right to enable me to help them, so I decided to grab my equipment and go right away.

Traffic was on my side and I got there a little sooner than I thought I would. It was after dark now so we needed to coordinate via phone in order to get together. David found me on the bike path, and walked me over to the area. They had left their towel exactly where they had been sitting, so I was encouraged for a recovery. One pass, one bottle cap, and then a good signal, one more scoop, and there was the ring in the bottom of my scoop. I forgot my headlamp in my vehicle, so it made it a little difficult locating the ring in the scoop, but once found I was able to hand it back to David who told me they had been married for 2 1/2 years. Dave and Maria could sleep well last night. It is always great to see the smiles after a successful recovery!

Kevin called last night asking for help in finding his wedding ring. He was playing football in the sand on the beach, when his friend threw the ball to him. As he went to catch the ball, the ball hit his left hand knocking his wedding ring off of his finger. The loss had happened just a little while earlier, and he knew the spot where it happened, so it sounded like a real good possibility of a recovery. I told him I was on my way.

When I got there Kevin met me, and took me to the area of the loss. We talked about it, and he explained and showed me what had happened. He showed me where he figured the ring would have landed. I then let him know that things don’t always happen as we think they do, but sometimes the forces that cause the loss often make a ring go into a direction we would not normally think. I figured on doing a complete grid of the area, and set to start back away from where Kevin had originally thought; 1, 2 , 3 swings boom, a good solid tone in the headphones, one scoop, and I had Kevin’s ring in my hand to his surprise. He was overjoyed, and was able to reunite with his friends. What a great evening!

Kevin sent the following testimonial:

Steve,

Thank you once again for coming down to the beach on such short notice to help me find my ring. I truly appreciate your help. The review I wrote up is below:

“When I lost my wedding ring on the beach and my friends and I spent 45 min rooting through the sand for it unsuccessfully, I thought it was lost for good. Thankfully I found Steve at theringfinders.com and he was able to come out within 30 minutes. I am not exaggerating when I say he found the ring in ONE MINUTE! It was incredible. Such a nice guy and such an expert at his craft. If you lose jewelry in the South Bay, call Steve.”

Keep up the good work!

I had just gotten home from my ring search in Malibu (about 10:00 PM) when my phone rang. It was Laura, she had lost her electronic car key in the sand at the beach while exercising. She had done a lot of searching, but was unable to find it. She was still there, so I said I would come and see if it was where she thought it might be.

When I got there Laura walked me out explaining how it might have been here or there. I let her know that we had to narrow down the search area because the beach was very wide, and it was now about 10:45 PM, and to do a 3-4 hour search was looking kind of grim. Laura had already figured it out though, and said we need to look for “the stick”, it would put me in the right spot as close to where she had been when she thought she lost the key. At that point I was looking for any stick, and showed her a small one at which she said no it is a big stick. It wasn’t long before she exclaimed “there it is”. I looked and she was right, the stick was a piece of fencing that she had buried to mark the spot. I then began my grid working towards the stick getting a load of bottle caps. After about 30 minutes I started working in the other direction with nothing but more bottle caps. I then began another grid working back towards the strand when I found the key. I looked around (it was very dark on the beach), and Laura was gone. I thought, “she couldn’t have left”. I walked back to where we had first met when I finally saw her, she was on the phone with AAA to get a tow for the car. When she told me, she had arranged a tow, I held out the key and asked, “wouldn’t you rather drive it home”, at which point she came over and gave me a big hug. I was able to make her day, and I am sure she slept well last night. It was a great day.

Last night I received a call from Fred, he had lost his wedding ring while at the beach with his family. He put all of the belongings that he thought could be lost in his chair while he went in the water and played with his children. What happened though was that when they were packing to leave the beach for the day, he forgot about the ring when gathering up his belongings, and when he picked the chair up, the ring disappeared into the sand. When he called, even though it was getting late, and he had already gone home, I convinced Fred to meet me at the beach so he could guide me to the area, and help me to help him. It is so important in a public area such as a beach or park, to do the search right away so as to eliminate many of the factors that could make a search impossible. In these recovery’s, time is the enemy.

Fred beat me to the beach, and with the dwindling light and lack of crowds, it made easy to find him. He led me out to the area, and showed me what had happened, and in what direction they had left the beach, so I began my search. As I searched, I would stop when I had found a bottle cap, foil, or some other metal I would turn to show Fred in order to let him know that I had not found the ring during that dig, but it seemed he was in deep thought (or prayer) hoping for the ring’s return, that he did not notice my showing of the metal most of the time. I searched from the first area up to the exit of the sand with no ring. I then took off my shoes to go into the water in the incoming tide, and began my search in the wet sand planning to work into the water. I got a good signal and dug. It wasn’t in the first scoop, so I dug again, and this time the metal was in the scoop. I shook the sand out, and there was Fred’s ring, a big heavy platinum ring. My scoop is 14 inches long, and that ring had sunk at least that deep in the soft sand in just a few hours, helped by the water going over wave after wave. I held the ring up for Fred, and shined my head lamp on it so he could see what I was holding. I waited for him to realize what I was holding in my hand, and he came immediately over. He then took the ring, but I believe he had convinced himself it wouldn’t be found, and was trying hard to find the markings that would prove it his. When he finally realized the ring was his, he blew out a sigh of relief, which made it very evident that this ring meant a whole lot to him. He then informed me that he and his wife were going to celebrate their milestone 15th wedding anniversary next month. This was the ring his wife had given him on that celebrated day, and it held a great sentimental value for him, all of this exposed his huMANity. It was great to have been able to help him; a wonderful day.

Richard called this evening. He had lost his wedding ring while at the beach with his family. He had taken the ring off and wrapped it in his shirt so it would not get lost while going in and around the water. The problem occurred when he went to get his shirt, forgetting the ring was inside. He unraveled his shirt while walking from where they had been sitting, and then realized the ring was missing. He searched but was unable to find the ring. I told him I would be happy to come and help.

When I got to the beach, Richard met me and took me to the area. He explained again what had happened, and in what direction he had been walking, so I had a good idea how I would grid the area. I worked all the area where he had been, and then began to move out. About 10 feet from where they had been sitting I got a good signal in the headphones, and scooped. As I shook out the sand, I could see the gleam of gold in the bottom; I knew I had found the ring. Richard was very happy. I was glad to have restored his joy, and know he will sleep well tonight!

Monday afternoon Antwon called explaining how he had lost his wedding ring after having removed it from his finger for a couple of minutes. Apparently it is a bit tight, so for a little relief he figured he would remove it and then put it back on when his finger felt better. The problem was that after he removed the ring it dropped into a patch of very tall and thick grass. I let him know I was on my way.

When I got there Antwon informed me that he had been there for 3 hours looking for the ring. He showed me the area, and I knew this would be a quick search. I turned on the detector, took a few swings, got the signal, put the pin pointer in, and had the ring in hand. Antwon looked more relieved than happy, but I could see the joy restored. Then I asked how long he had been married, and he said 3 days, so I understood. Glad to have been able to make his day. I know he slept well that night!
