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!

Van Key Lost in Palos Verdes Estates, CA…Found and Returned.

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I received a call from Paul last week regarding a key to his van he had lost 4 days prior. Paul has a dog walking business, and has a trail he likes to take the dogs on. When he arrives a the location, the dogs, after having been in the van for a while need to do their business. He carries a pocket full of plastic bags in order to clean up after them, and pulls one out whenever needed. The area right at curb side where he goes is about a half acre covered in a thick mulch, and when he has to pickup after one of the dogs, he has all the others pulling on him to go on their walk, this can make for a bit of canine anarchy. When cleaning up after one of the dogs, Paul pulled out a plastic bag, while being pulled by all of the other dogs, not realizing that his key had been pulled out with the bag, and lost in the mulch. He had gone back each day for 4 days looking for and not being able to find the key. We agreed to meet at the spot while he was walking his dogs, so I could get an understanding what actually happened.

When I got to the location, I sent Paul a text to let him know I was there. He sent one back to let me know he was there as well, and would meet me soon. I began to get my equipment ready when I turned around to see a gentleman coming down the trail surrounded by at least 15 dogs; what a sight, it looked surreal. All of the dogs were working as one unit with Paul at command. I would not have expected the dogs to have behaved so well with most all of them coming from different homes. Paul showed me what had happened to cause the loss, and then had to leave so he could take the dogs to their homes. I began my search in the mulch, and covered the area, with no key. I then went back to the start point, and began a cross grid, and after a few passes, got a good signal. I looked down, and there was the key, looking back at me from the mulch. I sent a text to Paul , and we arranged to meet this week to get the key back. I was glad to get a picture that shows this man with his happy dogs, and his smile with his found key. A lot of fun!

Truck Key Lost in Church School Playground in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA…Found and Returned.

I received a call from the pastor of a local church who explained that one of the staff of the attached school had lost her truck key while installing some new equipment in the school’s play area. The key had been lost for a couple of days, and the pastor and staff were in a meeting when the lost key was brought up. He mentioned the possibility of renting a metal detector to use in conducting the search. That is when Heather, a lady that we knew a few years back when our son’s played football together remembered I had told her about my metal detecting service. She found my number and gave it to the pastor. I was only about 25 minutes away, and agreed to come immediately to do the search.

When I got to the church, I met with Heather who brought me to the playground to show me what had happened. She explained how they had gotten sifters together, and planted toy dinosaurs and toy jewels in the sand to make a game out of finding things in the sand for the children, hoping that one of the children would dig up the key in the process, no luck. I started my search, and was getting too much interference from the screws holding the 2×4’s of the equipment together. We were able to move the pieces out of the way, which enabled me to conduct a thorough search of the area. It was then I received the tone I was listening for, and told Heather so. I took my sand scoop and had to scoop a couple of times, and then there it was. We brought it into Maureen who had lost the key. Needless to say Maureen was very happy to have her key.

Antique Diamond and Platinum Wedding Ring Lost at Newport Beach, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

Monday afternoon I received an email from Veronica heartbroken that she had lost her wedding ring at the beach. She explained how she had been in the water when a wave crashed into her, and as she tried to maintain balance, her ring flew off of her finger. This is a ring she saved up for, and it is also over 100 years old, so there was a great personal significance in this loss for her. I got the area from her. She told me that the ring was lost at high tide, so I figured the best approach would be to go at low tide, which was at 10:30 PM. I let her know I would go at about 7:00 PM to begin my search, and stay until after the low tide to insure I covered the whole area, and that I would report back to her no matter what the outcome.

I got to the area, and began my search. I put on chest waders to insure I could get out in the water for a complete search. The sand was soft and would have swallowed up her ring in an instant. I was a bit worried because I was only finding a few light objects, can slaw, pull tabs, and a couple pieces of wire. I made a grid to the North, because that is the way the current was moving parallel to the beach. I worked out about 70 to 80 feet with no luck, I then decided to work my grid South while the tide was still going out. I continued my grid, 1 pass, 2, 3, and then on the 4th pass received a good signal, dug, dumped my sand, turned my headlamp on, and there could see the curved shiny shape of a ring; 10:00 PM. I reached down, and brought up this beautiful diamond ring.

I emailed Veronica right then to let her know that I had found her ring, but she didn’t get the message until the next morning. She replied with great excitement, so I asked when we could meet for the return. She told me she was very busy for the next couple of days, and wasn’t sure when she would be able to break free for the return. I knew she really wanted her ring back, so I asked if I could drive out to the dentist where she was taking her children for their cleaning. She agreed to do it that way, and we met at the dentist building. She was so excited to have her ring back, I got a couple of great hugs, and got to see a wonderful smile appear where I know 2 days before there was none. What a day!

Keys Lost in Ivy in Los Angeles, CA…Found and Returned.

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I received a text Tuesday evening from Lexi asking for help to find some keys. Apparently Lexi had been spinning the keys around a finger when they flew off and into the ivy of an apartment complex. Keys can be very expensive to replace, so this was an important search. I got to the place the next morning, was shown the area of the loss, and began the search. It took about 10 minutes, until my detector sounded off with a good signal. I was able to give the keys back to a relieved Lexi. Unfortunately Lexi did not want a picture taken, so I just have the keys. I was able to make another person’s day though, and this is what it is all about.

Hi, my name is Steve Smith.

I am retired, which allows me to do a search at all hours of the day or night. I look forward to being a help to all who call. This hobby has been a great learning experience, and I have made sure that for the searches that I go on, I am using the best up to date equipment that is available. I have also found that being a member of The Ringfinders, and helping people find what they thought was “Lost Forever” has been a very rewarding experience. Please make the possibility of finding your valuable a success by calling as soon as you can after the loss.

Best regards,

Steve Smith
