Car Key Lost at Santa Monica Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

I had just finished dinner last night when I received a call from Cagil who had lost his car key in the sand at the beach. He had gone surfing, and buried his key at the high tide line so no one could find it while he was in the water. He had marked the area with a stick, in order to find it when he got out. What happened though was that while he was surfing, someone moved the stick, so he was unable to pin point the exact area where his key was. Cagil searched for over 2 hours, and was very frustrated at not being able to find his key, and the tide was rising. He then found me on The Ring Finders web site, and I told him I would be there as soon as I could get there.

When I got to the beach, I met Cagil’s friend Easy, who contacted Cagil, then we all went out to the spot where Cagil remembered burying his key. I began my search with no signal whatsoever. Cagil then directed me to another spot where he thought the key might be. I searched one side of the area with nothing, then I moved to the other side, and on the first pass got a solid signal. I scooped, and shook out the sand. There in the bottom of the scoop was the key. Needless to say, Cagil was very happy, not only because all of his belongings were in the car, but also the parking lot closed after dark, and he would have gotten a substantial ticket for having his car there. Well he was also able to finally get out of the wetsuit he had on for hours. It was very nice to be able to help him out last night, and see him happy when I left.

Last Friday morning I woke and checked my email, and found that Yessi had emailed me at 1:40 AM in desperation regarding a ring her sister had lost at the beach the night before. After I emailed her back, Celene her sister called, and I told her I would perform the search the same day even though we were having our second heaviest rainstorm of the year (good to have waterproof machines). It was about 10:00 PM the previous night when Celene removed her ring to fix her hair. She did this because the ring was very thin, her hair would catch on it, and become a nuisance. They were on one of the lifeguard towers when during the fixing of her hair she dropped the ring. She heard it hit the floor of the tower, but when they looked for it, it had disappeared. They then thought it might have slipped between the boards of the floor into the sand below. They looked there under and around the tower for the ring, but it was gone. Yessi would not let this go because she knew this was special to her sister. The ring had been given to her by her parents 14 years prior when she was a young teenager, and she wore it every day since.

When I got to the site the rain was coming down pretty good, so I donned my rain gear, got my machine, and went to the tower to search. I knew this would be a good time because I figured there would be no one out detecting to maybe have found it, and I knew also that the County beach sifters would not have been used on the beach with the wet sand. I searched in the area where I thought she might have been standing (I had to guess because Celene was not able to be there to show me), and widened my search out to where I thought the ring could have possibly bounced to, with no luck. I then began to search behind the tower and found a bottle cap. I removed the bottle cap, scanned again, got a nice foil sound in the headphones, and scooped up a very thin diamond ring. I called back to let Celene know that I found it, and we arranged to meet at a park on Sunday afternoon because of her work schedule. When she got to the park her sister was with her, which was great. It was even more unique to find that they were twins, a special bond for sure. What a great weekend that became. More smiles made!

Keys Lost at Newport Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

I had been detecting at the beach a couple of days ago without much luck, and was on my way back to my car when I happened to get a strong signal. I scooped up a bunch of keys on a ring. It looked like a fresh drop, so I figured I would try to get the keys to a lifeguard if possible. I continued on when up ahead of me, I saw a young man frantically working through the sand with his hands. He was about 100 feet from where I found the keys, so I figured he might have lost a ring. I got to where he was and asked if he had lost something, and he told me that he lost his keys. He was so far from where I found the keys, that I asked him to describe them, which he did; I had found his keys. I told him he was looking in the wrong place, that I had found them 100 feet down the beach, and pulled them out of my bag. He saw them, and could not stop thanking me. Robert’s day ended on a great note, and I was so glad I was able to help.

Diamond Wedding Ring Lost at Venice Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

Two days ago I received an email late in the evening from Raja regarding his wedding ring. He had been at the beach, and while brushing the sand off of his hands against his pants, his wedding ring flew off. He and his wife looked for it but were unable to find it. Later he was searching the internet and located The Ring Finders site where he found me. I emailed him back asking that he call, but he was unable to make the call until the next morning. He called, and I asked my standard questions, finding out that the loss was in a place that the County beach cleaning machines would not be going over, so I felt good about a recovery. I arranged to meet his wife at the spot yesterday morning because Raja had to work.

When I got there Raja’s wife Harpreet and her brother in law met me and took me to the area of the loss. After a brief question and answer session, I proceeded to search for the lost ring. I began at the furthest possible area away from the loss and worked my way back to where Raja had been standing when cleaning his hands. It was when I got to his previous position that I received a good signal, dug, and had his ring in my scoop. The ring had not gone very far, but had flown far to the left of his original position. I pulled it out and showed it to Harpreet who gladly identified it as her husband’s ring. She told me they had been married just 2 years, so the ring was a fresh token of their commitment to each other. Needless to say she was very happy to be able to go home and give it back to Raja. They asked that I not use pictures of them in the blog, so you get me with the ring instead. A nice day of smiles!

Bracelet Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

I was getting ready for dinner tonight when Manola called regarding a bracelet her daughter had lost while jumping off of a lifeguard tower at the beach. When she jumped it either came off when in the process of the jump or during the landing, but for sure it was gone in the sand. Manola, her daughter, and a friend had searched to no avail. They found my number and called, and I told her I would be there in 30 minutes, and was on my way.

When I got there, Manola met me, and walked me down to the area. She explained that this bracelet was given to her daughter recently by her grandmother, who had just passed away 2 weeks ago, so this recovery was very important. I used one of my best detectors, and was not able to find anything. The area was very clean of any metal, and I was not getting the bracelet, so I figured it was a very small chain which makes it very hard for most detectors to be able to detect. Fortunately, I had brought another detector that could be used to find the very small stuff, so I went back to the car to exchange detectors. When I turned on the new detector I was not finding very much but a couple of small pieces of trash metal. I made a another pass when I heard a faint sweet sound in the head phones. I gently put the scoop in and dumped the sand out. I then re scanned the pile and the sound was the same, so I scooped the pile again and gently shook it out, and there hanging out the holes in the bottom was a very fine gold chain bracelet. I was able to hand the bracelet back to Manola and her daughter, and I knew that this would be a great evening with wonderful happy smiles.

Heirloom Diamond Earring Lost in Grass in Long Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I had gone surfing today, and when I got back to the car after my session, I found that I had received a call and had a message of an earring loss from Stan. I called him back to see if he still needed my help. He said he did. We discussed the loss, and he explained that his girlfriend had been out walking the dog, and reached up over her head to grab a branch with the hand that held the leash, when the dog tried to chase something. When that happened the leash brushed her ear, and knocked off her earring. I let Stan know that I had to get home first to drop off my surfing equipment, get my recovery equipment, and then I would head over for the search. He said that would be fine, and I told him I would let him know when I was on my way.

When I got to the area, I met Stan’s girlfriend Rennie. I grabbed my equipment, and Rennie and I walked to the area of the loss. She showed me what she had done and explained what the dog had done to cause the earring to come off. She also told me how they had searched the area, and Stan told me he had as well on hands and knees. The grass had a pretty good thatch and was pretty thick. The earring was white gold, which tends to be hard to find in grassy areas because it reflects the surrounding material which provides a sort of camouflage. We took her remaining earring, put it in a small Ziplock bag, and put it down to make sure the detector I brought would hear it. My detector sounded at about 3 inches, so I knew it would find it. I then had to adjust the pin pointer to almost max sensitivity, and then was ready for the search. I made a pass, checking every faint sound, to insure that I did not overlook anything. I made one pass with nothing. I then turned to make the second pass. I got a too strong signal, but checked it anyway, nothing. I swung just to the left of that signal, and got one that was more like the one I received when checking the remaining earring. I put my pin pointer in, and got the signal. I saw the earring, it had flipped so that the diamonds were facing down, which would have not allowed the earring to glimmer, and help in its recovery by those who had looked before. When I reached in and held it out for Rennie, she got so excited she gave me a big hug. Later she told me how her grandmother had given her earrings when she was 16 years old, and how she then gave them to a family member later. She said that in 6 months they had been lost. she took it hard, and went to a jeweler, and had a new pair, this pair made to the exact specifications as the old ones, so there was a whole history involved that made this recovery very special. What a pleasure it is to make the smiles come back to those I am able to help.

Wedding Ring Lost at Huntington Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

I received a call yesterday from David, a friend of the gentleman who lost his wedding ring. He told me that the ring was lost while folding the beach chair getting ready to head for home. They had searched until his friend had to leave for home because his young child was getting cold and needed rest. David though said he would remain until I came to look for the ring, and I was on my way.

When I got there, I found David. Fortunately he had another friend who remained with him. They showed me the spot of the loss, and I readied my equipment for the search. The area was not very large so I knew the search would be a short one. It was important that they remained in the exact area, and marked the spot where they believed the loss to have occurred. I began my search, and found a quarter, and then continued on. I got another good signal, and it took me a couple of scoops to get the target. I looked in the scoop, and there was a ring of the type they explained to me. David then called his friend and did a “Face Time” with him showing him the ring. He was very happy, and I got to see his smile. …but what a great couple of friends he has, who would stay behind and wait for me to conduct my search. I think David’s smile says it all!

I was sitting at home last Sunday afternoon when I received a call from Julian regarding his wedding ring which he lost at the beach playing volley ball. He told me that he dove for the ball when his ring flew off of his finger. He also said that there were about 15 of his friends searching with him for about an hour and a half, using their hands and a rake to no avail. I told him I would come right away, and was on my way.

I got to the court, and Julian came right over to show me the area where he believed the loss occurred. He showed me what had happened, and I told him I would get right on it. I began my first pass, and got a bottle cap. A few swings more, and I had Julian’s ring in my scoop; about 3 minutes total. He was so surprised, and his friends could not believe it. They had scoured that area for 1 1/2 hours, and I had it within minutes. It is so important to call someone right after the loss to increase the chances of a recovery, please don’t wait. It was awesome to see all the shared joy that afternoon; two thumbs up!

Nii called me yesterday evening with an air of desperation in his voice, he had lost his wedding ring at the beach while throwing a football to his son. After scouring the sands for about 45 minutes, with a group of about 6 people, he was unable to find it. One of the group gave him The Ring Finders information, and he contacted me. We briefly discussed what had happened, and we were both close to the loss area, so we arranged to meet in about 30 minutes.

When I got there Nii took me to the area of the loss, and I could see a very meticulous grid pattern in the sand, so I knew they had searched long and hard for this lost ring. Nii then went on to show me exactly what had happened, which is very important for a Ring Finder to figure out where to begin a search. I began my search finding a few pieces of metal, a bottle cap, a piece of foil, and a few others, showing him each time what I had found. One pass, two, and then on the third pass, going a little outside of the area they had search got the signal I was looking for. I scooped, looked inside, and there was his wedding ring. I reached in, held it out (Nii was about 25 feet from me at this time), and I think he thought I was holding another piece of trash metal. I kept holding it out, and turned it so he could see the roundness, and the hole in the middle. All of a sudden the realization was there, I had found his ring, and what a smile and raised level of excitement. He was so surprised, and so happy. What a great thing to bring such a high level of joy to people!

I had been busy Sunday night, and my phone was away from me for a few hours on charge. When I went to get the phone about 10:45, I found I had received an email from David 2 hours earlier about having lost his necklace earlier in the day at the beach. He had placed it in his duffle bag in order to keep it safe while enjoying his day. He then packed up and went home, and that is when he found that his necklace was gone. He then drove back to the beach to look for it and to ask the Life Guard, or the Police if anyone had turned it in, but it was to late in the day as everyone had left. He went back to where they had spent the day, and dug through the sand to try and locate his necklace, but to no avail. I answered his email, letting him know that I would go immediately to do a search if he would let me know exactly where it was lost, because this beach is cleaned very early in the morning by the county. He emailed me the area, and then I asked for him to call me, so I could ask some questions in order to narrow down the search area. Once we finished our conversation, I was on my way, it almost 12:00 AM.

I got to the spot, and made my way down. When I started walking out on the sand, I could not believe it, the sand was smoothed out, the county had already been through. I kept walking out, and found that the county had not cleaned the area where the necklace was lost; relief! David told me the necklace had been made to have an aged look, so I would easily recognize it if found. I got to work and withing 4 passes, I got a signal and dug. When I began to pull the scoop out I saw the  necklace hanging out of the scoop. I pulled it up, and turned on my headlight, and was able to identify it as the necklace David described. I sent him an email letting him know of my success at about 1:00 AM, and he sent me one back about 6:15 AM of excitement. We arranged to meet the next day, and I was able to give him back something he thought was lost forever. He told me that this was a gift from his little sister, so it had a special significance for him. I was happy to make his day.
