Shawn called me asking if I could help him. It was a unique request, he and his friend had buried an ammo box (time capsule) full of their personal things 8 years prior, and now decided to dig it up. His friend had gotten very ill, so Shawn thought it would be something that could bring a bit of light back to him if he brought this memory to his friend. Also he was doing some construction in the area, and thought the time capsule might be covered, making the recovery impossible, so he wanted to get I found. We arranged a time when we were both available to do the search.

When I arrived, Shawn took me to the area, and showed me where he believed the box had been buried. It wasn’t a very big area, maybe 8×8 feet, but the ground was very hard and rocky, so a general dig would have been difficult. I tried one detector, and was receiving too much interference from surrounding metal, then switched detectors to be able to pin point the buried box better. I found one signal that was intermittent, so I continued to look. I then found another better signal under an earthen ledge. Shawn seemed to think the second signal might have been closer to the area where the box was originally buried, so he began to dig there. He carved out a few inches of the ledge with no box, so I checked again, but this time checked the depth range on the detector. It showed that he needed to go in about 9 to 10 inches, so he continued to dig. He finally hit something hard and metallic, and figured he found the box. He dug a little more finding that it was the box. Shawn then called his children and their friend over to finish the dig so as to include them in the excitement of finding “buried treasure”. It was fun to see their excitement as they dug out the time capsule, and then opened it up. I am sure that Shawn’s friend will also find some joy in seeing this item he and his good friend had participated in burying together. This is truly a fun service to be a part of!

Breeze called last night as I was finishing up my dinner. Her husband’s ring had been lost at the beach, and after a thorough search of the area, they were unable to find it. She was hoping I would be able to help. I asked her some questions, and found out that the loss occurred earlier that day, so the possibility of a recovery was good. Also, she told me that she had watched the ring fly into the sand, so she knew very well where the ring should be, which only enhanced the recovery possibilities. I let her know I would be on my way as soon as I got my equipment together.

When I got to the meeting place, Breeze, her husband Kartik, and a friend met me and walked me down to the area of the loss. It turned out to be a secluded area, and then she explained exactly what caused the loss. Kartik had given Breeze the ring to hold while he went surfing. Breeze was hold their dog’s leash in one hand, and had the ring on her thumb of the other hand. As soon as their dog saw Kartik coming from the water back to them, he jerked his leash, which caused Breeze’s other hand to jerk in the other direction, and the ring to fly off. When this happened she looked back to see the ring go towards the sand. It is truly amazing how hard it is to find a ring even though you know where it should be, but that is why I use the best equipment available in order to make that process as “painless” as possible. It took all of about 3 minutes to find the ring and have it back on Kartik’s finger. It takes the ability to ask the right questions, and have the most up to date equipment to make such a recovery possible. I am really happy to make others happy, and this was one of those times.

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.

RJ called me in the afternoon on a hot day for a search. He had been at the beach the day before, and before going in the water he remembered putting his necklace with pendant into his bag. When he left though the necklace was gone, he figured in the beach sand. This piece of jewelry was given to him by his mother. It had been worn by his grandfather while he fought in World War 2. The pendant had the word LUCK written in Hebrew, and it meant the world to him. I came right away.

When I arrived there was still a lot people on the sand, but RJ believed that it was in an area that people were not in at the time. I did a search the best I could, but was not able to find the ring. I let him know I would go back when everyone had gone home. I got there about 8:30 PM, and began my search. After about 1 1/2 hours, and many bottle caps, pennies, and tin foil, I got another good signal. When I dug, there in my scoop was the pendant, not where he had thought it was, in fact way over to the other side of where he had conducted me earlier. This is the reason it is best to get on the search as soon as possible, because over time people tend to forget exact details that we as Ring Finders need in order to have a successful search. Of course we need to think and search “out of the box” at times in order to have a complete search of an area, and this is what was done this time. I sent RJ a text to let him know I found the pendant and chain, and arranged to meet him at the bar he was at to return it. Needless to say RJ was very happy that night!

I received a call late in the day yesterday regarding a wedding ring lost in the water at the beach. Steven was coming out of the water when a wave hit him in the back, and knocked his ring from his finger. It immediately disappeared in the sand and water. I let him know I would be leaving to help right away.

When I arrived the tide was close to its high point, and there were 4 foot shore break crashing right on the beach. The loss had happened a few hours before, and closer to the low end of the tide cycle. I tried to do a search, but because of the wave action, was not able to get to far in the water to do a good search, and decided to come back today when the tide was low again. I spent about 1 1/2 hours doing the search when I got a good solid signal, and dug. After I dumped the scoop and kicked the sand away, I saw the gleam of gold. I took the ring and sent an email to Steven to let him know that I was successful. We arranged a meeting at the same beach later, and I was able to give his ring back. He was very happy, and surprised that it was found. Another great smile made!

I had a call for a search for a lost ring in a park yesterday. The ring was eventually found at the caller’s home and was not lost at the park, but while searching the playground for the ring I found someone’s lost iPhone 7 buried in the wood chips. The phone still had a charge, and was still working, so I looked and found the last person that was called on the phone. The phone was locked, but allowed me to call that person back. It turned out the person on the other end was a friend that happened to be there at the park the day the phone was lost, so I gave him my number to forward to his friend. His friend Anthony called me today, and we arranged to meet so I could get his phone back to him.

We arranged to meet at a store about half way between our houses. Needless to say Anthony was very happy, and told me that they had searched for the phone for quite a while after the loss. I am glad I was able to help him out.

Eric called today about his wedding band he had lost in his backyard over the Memorial weekend, during a grilling session. He went to wipe his hands off in the grass, when while swiping them his ring went flying. He and his family searched for a couple of hours without any luck. After a few questions, I agreed to do the search. He was going to be at work, so we arranged to have me meet with his wife Anna at the house later in the day.

When I arrived, Anna met me at the backyard gate, and took me back to the site of the loss. She showed me approximately what happened. From what it looked like, the ring should not have gone far, but having done these searches over the years, I have found that these rings sometimes go in the least expected of places. I searched the area where I expected the ring would have gone first, no luck. I then began a search over all the rest of the yard, and on the last pass, all the way on the other side of the yard, further back than it should have been, I found Eric’s ring. Rings are kind of like weird people; they just do their own thing. It was a pure pleasure to be able to hand Anna her husband’s ring, that they thought was lost for good. Truly a great day!

Eric sent the following testimonial:

Steve,

You are a great guy with a great calling in life! My lost ring in my backyard was probably a run-of-the-mill search and find for you, but I had been wearing it for over 20 years. I had been doing yard work the previous day and within minutes of it falling off my finger (still don’t know how it happened), I realized my finger was bare. But me finding you was a bigger part of the story. We looked for it all evening until it got too dark. The next day, I had to go to work. I told my co-workers that I had lost my ring the previous day, and the general consensus was that I would need to buy a replacement. I’m surrounded by co-workers wearing replacements. A couple of them had heard of your website. So I gave it a try. I think I called you around 11:00 in the morning, let you know my wife would be home by 3:30, and you were there by 4:00. I shared your emails and txts with my work mates so they were all along for the ride. – Ring found within a few minutes in a part of the yard that I didn’t think it would be in. “It’s never where you think it is” I believe you told my wife. Anyhow, I had to run around the office saying “Steve found it!” It was a nice touch to a stressful day.

Thanks again and best wishes in all your future searches!

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.

While I was on my way to meet with Gibreel in the previous post for the lost iPhone, I received a call from Bryan who had lost his wedding ring just about an hour before. It sounded like a good possibility of a recovery, so I let him know that I had a search to do before I could get out to where he was to do their search, but that I would be there. He was fine with the arrangement, because he had something he had to do in the mean time. I found the iPhone, and was on my way to Bryan.

Traffic was good, and I was able to get to the beach at the arranged meeting time. What had happened, was that Bryan and his wife were on the beach enjoying the evening, when it started to rain. They hurried to gather up all of their belongings to not let them get wet, when during the process Bryan flicked his hand, and his ring was instantly gone. They searched for about an hour before they decided to look for someone to help them. I am glad I was available and close. When I got there they showed me the area, and I could see that they had performed a good tight grid in the sand during their search. He showed me where he thought the ring might have flown because of the motion of his hand, so that is where I began my search. The ring was not there, and I kept the grid going. After a few passes I entered the middle of their grid area when I got a good signal, and let them know I believed I had found the ring. After scooping out the sand, I scooped once more into the dumped out sand, and inside was Bryan’s ring. I got a big hug from his wife and a hearty handshake from Bryan. They had only been married for 8 months, so the ring had a pronounced sentimentality for them. What a great ending of the day!

Jason called last night after losing his ring at a local park near his house. We discussed the loss, and where he thought it might be. It sounded like we could postpone the search until today because of the length of the grass, and that the loss was on a hillside. We arranged to meet in the morning. So when I finished breakfast, I was on my way.

I met Jason at his house, and then followed him over to the park. When we arrived he showed me where he had been when the loss occurred, and how he believed the ring could have fallen there. I began working the hillside, and received numerous signals, but none registering silver. It wasn’t until I worked passed the tree that is in the photo above that I got the signal I needed. I looked in the grass and could see the round shape that assured me I had found Jason’s ring. I reached down and brought it back up showing him immediately. Needless to say he was very happy to have it back, after having it on his finger for 7 years. I was very glad to have given him that relief. It is much fun making people happy!
