I received a call from David who was calling for a friend that had lost his ring in the sand at the beach. David remembered me from 3 years prior when he called me for another friend who had lost his ring, which I found. This time his friend Brian had put his wedding ring in his hat when he went into the water, but forgot when his belongings were moved so the two of them could practice their Wifflle Ball skills. I let them know I would be able to come right away.

I got to the area, and David found me to wave me over the spot of the loss. He showed me the area, which did not seem to be large, right next to a trash can. I began my search grid, not finding anything. I then began a grid behind the trash can, and right next to it received a good signal. I had to scoop a couple of times because the target was moving, but when I raised the scoop, inside was a nice gold ring. I gave it back to Brian, who was happy he did not have to go home and have to explain to his wife how it was lost.😊 Another great day!

I received a distressed email from Tommy the other day. He had lost a very special ring in the surf at the beach that he had been wearing for the past 23 years. He had won the ring at the Maryland DC White Marlin Open Tournament in 1997, a tournament that he had fished for most of his life, and to lose this precious reward was a major blow. The problem was that the ring was lost 3 days earlier, and I was already thinking that the possibility of a recovery was going to be slim to none. The best chance of a search was going to be the next morning, so that was going to be 4 days. I called Tommy and we discussed what had happened. There were details about the loss that were favorable, like the fact he lost it at high tide, which would have put me in a good position at low tide the next day. He was not able to meet me there for the search, but was able to give me a great landmark to use to do the search, so I let him know I would go, and let him know one way or the other if I was able to locate his ring.

I got to the area, and began my search at the top of the slope working North and South, and worked my way down to the water. There was so much sand, and I was not getting any signals although I was using one of my deepest detectors. I finally found one crusted penny. I reached the water’s edge, and donned my chest waders to search in the surf. I now worked East and West trying to maintain a close grid working down the beach. I was able to go out into the surf quite far because after going through a hole, there was a sand bar that raised back up, and was flat out to the breaking waves. I found another crusted penny out there, and ended up covering the whole area that I had searched up on the slope. Tommy had told me that if anything, he might have been more North of the landmark as opposed to South, so I moved up to continue searching in the Northern direction. I made a few passes from the top of the slope into the water, and while about 30 feet out in the water, out on the bar I got a good signal. I was able to scoop the target digging once, and after washing the sand from the scoop saw the ring I was hunting, I couldn’t believe it was still there, but seeing it made me very happy. I took a picture of the ring and sent a text to Tommy letting him know about the recovery, and he sent a me a text back, one of total disbelief. We arranged to meet when he got off of work, to return the ring. When we met, he told me how he had been in communication with the tournament to find out if the ring could be replaced, because he thought it was lost forever. I was very honored to be able to hand this precious memory back to him; made his day!

Lit Papi (Stage Name) called me last night explaining that he lost his girlfriend’s ring at the beach. I had just finished dinner, poured myself a cup of coffee, and let him know I would be on my way.

When I arrived Lit Papi met me and showed me where they had been sitting and explained what happened. The area was not large, so I knew this would be a quick search. I searched on the one side of the area, finding only a nickel. I then began in the other direction, when after one pass, I got a good signal, put in the scoop, which now had the ring inside. He was happy to be able to get his girlfriend’s ring back. They would both sleep well now, I was sure.

Keith called me for a search of a church rectory and children’s play yard. The rectory had recent work, and they were worried about nails and other pointy things left over from the construction, and he also wanted me to check the play yard for dangerous items. I let him know this would be possible, and we arranged a time to meet.

When I got to the church, Keith met me, and showed me where to search. I began, and found that there were many deep items, but not much surface items, but I was able to find some around the rectory. After searching the rectory, we went over to the play area, where in the crumbled tire mulch that surrounded the equipment I was able to find many items that could have caused serious injury to the children. After I finished Keith seemed very happy to know that the children would be safer.

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”

Katie lost her engagement ring of 1 1/2 years yesterday at the beach where she had gone to beat the heat we are experiencing here in Southern California. While she was brushing the sand off, her ring unknowingly came off in the soft sand. After she realized what had happened and intensely searched for it, she found me on The Ring Finders site and called me this morning. We discussed what had happened, and it sounded like we should be able to find the ring. we arranged to meet at the beach when her time would allow.

When I arrived, because of the remote location surrounded by mountains, I was losing my phone signal, so finding her became an exercise, but we were finally able to connect. Katie then led me down to the area they had been the previous day. She had marked the spot with sticks ( a very smart move) in order to find it the next day. She explained where she had been, and I was off and searching. After a couple of passes with no signal I received a very low tone in the headphones, but kind of “sticky”. It was the only signal so I dug, and dumped the sand and rescanned the hole, I had gotten it out. I then scanned the dumped sand and the signal was strong, I scooped again and there in the scoop was her beautiful gold and diamond engagement ring. Oh was she happy! She then called her fiancé to let him know the ring had been found. She put the phone on speaker, and he expressed his gratitude as well. To see her joy was a refreshing sight in this time when many are fearful and despairing. What a really great day!

Al called me last week to ask my help in finding his wedding ring. He had been cleaning out a yard drain of dead leaves in his neighbor’s yard, and spreading the leaves out so as to not make a pile of them when he noticed his wedding ring of 46 years missing from his hand. We talked, and he told me that as soon as he secured permission from the neighbor to have me search with my detector, he would call me back. He called yesterday letting me know he had the permission, and we arranged to do the search today.

When I arrived Al was waiting for me. I got my equipment together, and he walked me over to the yard. It was overgrown with grass, and had a thick layer of dead leaves which would create quite a problem in locating a small item like a wedding ring for sure. Al told me he had tried with a detector his wife had purchased for him previously, but without success. I have found that without experience, trying to do the search not knowing how to use the detector usually results in an experiment in frustration for the person looking. I have the time on the detector, and the number of recoveries to know when to press on in an abysmal situation. When I turned the detector on, right away I was experiencing electrical interference, so I adjusted for that. Then there was a chain link fence next to the search area, so when I received a good signal near the fence, I adjusted the pin pointer for that area. The yard was very clean of metal trash, and I got a couple of good signals that proved to be too deep for recent loss. It wasn’t until I got about 20 feet from the drain that I got a great double beep on a shallow signal, put the pin pointer in moving the leaves around, when we both sighted the ring edge on its side pushed into the dirt. Al was so very happy when I lifted it out and handed it to him. He and his wife picked out the rings (hers is similar) 46 years ago when they got married. 46 years, truly a marriage made in Heaven. So glad to be a help, especially in these dire times!

I received an early morning call from Whitney the other day regarding the loss of his wife’s wedding ring. It seems that 3 days earlier she had been out in the yard playing with her son, and took her rings off so as not to get them messed up. She laid them on the grass, but did not take into account their dogs running around. So when she went back to retrieve her rings they were gone, quite possibly kicked around by the dogs and pushed down into the grass. We arranged on a time to come out, and I readied my equipment for the search.

When I got to their house Whitney met me and showed me the area of the loss, which wasn’t large. He then explained how he had searched and found the engagement ring, but after about a total of 8 hours of searching over the 3 days, was not able to locate the wedding band. I set up my equipment for this search and began a tight grid. About 5 minutes into the search, I got a great shallow signal, and to Whitney’s surprise, found the ring, just a couple of feet from the original location. It was a small yellow gold ring that was easily hidden in the brown parts of the grass. Needless to say Whitney and his wife were pleased to have found The Ring Finders, and I was happy to be able to reunite them with their precious token of love!

Anthony called last night about 7:30 PM asking if I would be able to help him find his wedding ring that he lost earlier in the day. I don’t think he was ready for my answer when I told him that I would meet him at the spot of the loss the same night. I believe it surprised him that I was available at the moment. I explained that time was the enemy of a successful recovery, and he asked if he could call back. I also let him know that the fact that it was dark now would not hinder the search. He did call back, and we arranged to meet at the beach at about 9:00 PM.

When I arrived I let Anthony know, and we found each other. He then explained that he and some friends were playing football in the sand, and he realized his “tight fitting” ring was gone when they got back to the car at the end of the day. When he took me out to the area, he showed me a large section of beach to search, and I explained that the process is slow and deliberate in order to not miss anything. I then began at one end of the area working my way back in a nice even grid to the other end of the loss area. The thing that made the search easier was that there was very little metal trash. I did get a few bottle caps, a bit of aluminum, and some tin foil, along with some coins but not enough to slow the search down much. The clean beach allowed me to cover the sand quicker than I expected. After about 1 1/2 hours I got a good sweet gold sound in the head phones, dug, and in my scoop was Anthony’s ring. I just held it out for him to his surprise. He did let me know that he was getting a bit discouraged because I was finding things, but not the ring. I find this happens a lot because the expectation level is very high in the beginning, but wanes as the things that are dug up are not what we are looking for. It is then that with experience I continue on without the discouragement, because I know that the process has to be completed before moving on to other options. I was able to give Anthony back his token of commitment given him by his wife on that special day, which made his day much happier.

As I was leaving the cache search yesterday, I received a call from Patti’s husband asking if I could help find his wife’s ring that she had had for more than 30 years. She had been doing yardwork, and when she was done, she was in the house washing her hands and noticed her ring was gone. They went back out looking for the ring brushing the leaves around looking, but were not able to find it. I told him that I was only about 15 minutes away, and had all my equipment ready to search, so he sent me the address, and I was on my way over.

When I got to the house Patti met me, and explained what she believed might have happened. She then showed me the yard which was completely covered in small golden brown leaves making it very difficult to spot a yellow gold ring even if were sitting right on the surface. There was a pile of leaves that were destined for the trash that I checked first not finding the ring. I then went with Patti to the yard, and began a search, got one signal that turned out to be too deep. I continued, and received a strong double beep signal, looked down, and could see a faint outline of gold peeking through the leaves. I reached down and showed Patti. She and her husband were so very happy, she wanted to give me a hug, which of course I never refuse.:-) That really topped the day, 40 silver 1 oz. coins, and a beautiful ruby and diamond ring, and some really happy people. Awesome!

Patti sent the following testimonial:

After working all afternoon in our yard, cleaning out leaves from the planting beds, I was horrified to look at my hands and realize that my wedding ring was no longer on my finger. What can you say about a ring that’s been there for 34 yrs and daily reminds you of all those shared years? I was stunned. We looked for it unsuccessfully and then we found Steve’s website. He arrived at our house in about 15 minutes and found my ring in less than 10. Wow. I couldn’t stop smiling for 24 hours. The whole drama transpired within an hour … from lost to found. I don’t know which chapter was more astonishing … losing the ring or Steve’s quick recovery. I hugged him (asked permission first!) – he was so gracious, knew exactly what he was doing, and in a short period of time left 2 VERY grateful people. He’s the real deal – a ring finder and a gentleman!
