Wedding Ring Lost in Grass in Santa Monica, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

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!

Engagement Ring Lost on Los Angeles Street…Found and Happily Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

Michelle called yesterday. She believed she had lost her engagement ring while walking down the street swatting at some leaves that were extending into the sidewalk. It was the only likely area, because it was the only area with a lot of vegetation, and with her hand motions combined, sounded like the ideal situation. We agreed to meet this morning to do the search.

I got to the spot and contacted Michelle to let her know I had arrived. She immediately came over and took me to the area of the possible loss. It definitely looked at though it could have swallowed her ring. There was a lot of over and under growth as well as dead leaves to hide her ring. I then asked her to recreate what she did the night before which showed me where her ring could have flown to. I began where she had started swatting the leaves finding numerous items of metal, many good signals but mostly foil, but no ring. At the very end of the bushes I received another good signal, and putting in my pin pointer to find the item, and moving the leaves around, there it was, Michelle’s ring which I promptly held up for her. She was so surprised and elated, but with a bit of disbelief not thinking it could have been found. She had received this ring from her fiancé while she was still in school waiting for graduation to get married. She had just recently graduated, and was looking forward to arranging the wedding when this loss occurred. It’s so great to restore the joy to people who lose it so quickly.

Ring Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA Volley Ball Court…Found and Happily Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

Sunday afternoon I received a call from Daiane. She had been playing volley ball with friends, went to hit the ball, and felt her ring come off of her finger. She and her friends searched for the ring, but were unable to find it. The ring had been given to her by her boyfriend as a token of commitment to their relationship with appropriate engravings. I told her I could help because it had just happened, would still be there, and we should be able to find it. I was on my way.

When I got there, Daiane took me over to spot where she hit the ball, showed me the direction she swung her hand, and told me she hit the ball with a great amount of force. She had been up right next to the net and hit the ball over and across the court. She was certain the ring would be right in the direction of the swing, near the net. It was the logical solution, but with the many rings I have searched for I have found that there are times when a ring loss is anything but logical. I began my search in the most logical spot, no ring. I then began a grid of the whole court, both sides, no ring. I then worked the outside of the court in the direction of the swing, no ring. Then I began going around the outside of the whole court. During this search I found a few coins and some other items, but no ring. It wasn’t until I was outside the court behind where she had been standing that I got a good signal, and had her ring in my scoop. It seems that when she hit the ball, the ring bounced off of the ball, and flew 20 feet behind her, not what they expected. It is important to think and search out of the box, even if the person you are helping is sure where the item should be. It was great to put a smile back on her face, and faces of her friends.

White Gold Wedding Ring Lost at Redondo Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

Yesterday I received a call from Cathy, she was asking for help in finding her husband David’s wedding ring at the beach. They had been there the day before in the afternoon, and sometime when applying sunscreen, his ring went missing. They looked, but were unable to find it, or remember exactly where they had been sitting. Cathy found me on The Ring Finders web site, and called. I was able to go right away, and they were at the location, which was going to be a big help.

When I got there Cathy met me and walked me down to the area she believed the loss to have occurred. I took one look at the beach, and my heart immediately sank. The beach had the tell tail sign of having been cleaned by the county sifting machine not the rake, smoothed beach with tire tracks. So the first thing I did was to inform Cathy that because of the beaches condition, the prospects did not look well for a successful search, but told her that there is always hope, and I would conduct the search none the less. David came over not long after and using the pictures he had taken when they were there tried to narrow down the area where they had been sitting. He showed me the pictures, and then said he thought he had remembered a red piece of plastic that was on the beach being the same one that they had been next to the day before. Looking at the pictures, the pattern in the sand from the sifters looked the same as they did now. Could it be that they had skipped a day, and not many people had visited that area since yesterday, I was encouraged, and began my search. One pass, two, three, four, bobby pins, bottle caps, a piece of foil, a penny, and then on pass five, a good solid signal, one scoop, and there it was David’s white gold ring. I held it up towards where they had been sitting, and they came right over. Cathy gave me a hug, and David shook my hand, both very happy to be able to hold David’s ring again, and see it again where it belongs. Another happy couple, and a great day!

Gold Cross With Diamonds Lost in Redondo Beach, CA…Found.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I received a call from Erica today regarding her 6 year old daughter’s cross. It seems that as she was bringing her daughter home from school, her daughter removed her necklace that held the cross that Erica’s sister had given her daughter at her baptism over 5 years before. Erica had just recently allowed her daughter to start wearing the cross, and because she had received a necklace from her school mates, and she had been admiring it, somehow the necklace with her baptismal cross came loose. There was also another gem on the necklace which they were able find, but unable to locate the cross. We arranged to meet as soon as we both could get to the area.

When I pulled up Erica was waiting for me right where they had found the first gem. I got ready, and began searching. I found a nail, and there were some deeper items but no cross. Erica began to backtrack, and we worked the area going back, more deep items, a ball bearing, but no cross. The one thing I was able to do was to eliminate the most obvious possibilities, and mentioned to her that sometimes we have to think outside of the box. As I was scanning a patch of grass Erica came up to me excited that she had found the cross. It was over 100 feet from where she had originally thought it to be, and was lying on the painted line of the crosswalk; yellow gold on a yellow crosswalk, diamonds down, a very tricky target indeed, totally out of the box. She told me that she would never have looked that far away if I had not eliminated the areas she thought for sure it was lost in. It was a pleasure to see her joy restored.

iPhone Lost at Manhattan Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

Monday morning I had just gotten up when I received a call from Carly. She and her family had gone to the beach to experience the city’s Christmas fireworks the night before. They had created a little seating area in the sand, and her husband gave her his iPhone to hold for him, which she dutifully placed in her purse for safekeeping. During their time there her youngest got up and began running from the group, which caused Carly to jump up to give chase. During the chase, not realizing her purse was still open, the phone came out and embedded itself in the sand. She had not realized what happened until her husband asked for his phone. It was dark, and there was a lot of sand, and their searching became futile. Carly was not able to sleep, and found me on The Ring Finders site at 3:00 AM, thankfully she waited until 7:00 AM to call:-) I let her know that I would be there as soon as I got ready, and asked if she could make sure the county beach sifters left that area alone by waiting at the spot until I got there.

When I got to the beach Carly was waiting with her little one, a young bundle full of energy. She showed me the area they had been sitting, and I asked about what had happened, and where they ran to. I began my search, and Carly took her little one to the swings not far off. I made about 3 passes when I received an overpowering signal, and decided to just brush the sand aside with my foot. There it was, not 2 inches under the sand. I picked it up, wiped the dust off on my shirt, and waved it towards Carly, who became very excited, grabbed her son and ran over. While she was on her way, a group of people on a balcony overlooking the area commenced clapping for our success. What a great morning, lots of happy people.

Wallet, Keys, and Cell Phone Lost at Santa Monica Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

Wednesday night before Thanksgiving about 10:00 PM I received a call from Gabrial. He had lost his wallet, keys, and cell phone at the beach, and was wondering if I could help. We talked, and I asked questions, and I had many. What happened was that he had gone surfing, and wanting to make sure that no one absconded with his belongings he put them in an old sock and buried them in the sand and then put his towel over the spot. Well after coming out of the water, grabbing his towel and drying off, he turned and walked away to go home. It wasn’t until he had gone a long way off that he remembered that he had left his wallet, keys, and cell phone in the sand. He went back searched and searched digging up the sand where he remembered burying everything, but could not find them. Someone tried to help with a “Find My iPhone” app, but that didn’t work either, so after a long time of searching he finally gave up and went home. He was able to find my number, and called. He was thinking we might be able to go the next morning (which I was unable to do), I said the only other day I could get there would be Friday, and I knew that would be too late because the county would be dragging the beach before then with mechanical rakes and sifters, and his stuff would be gone for sure. I told him we had to go that night because his loss was on the towel line, the first place the county cleans. He lived about 45 minutes away and needed to get a ride, but said he would meet me there, so I was on my way.

I got to the beach and met Gabrial and his friends at the spot of the loss about 11:15 PM. It was dark on the beach, but with my headlight I could see where Gabrial had been searching. It looked as though he had plowed a half an acre of sand with his hands. I realized he had to be exhausted and discouraged, but I felt pretty certain that because I was able to convince him to go back the same night that we had a very good chance of finding everything. I asked him to show me where he believed he had his towel, and started my search there, going out of the box on every pass. I was working along and had made about 6 passes finding tons of bottle caps but nothing else. Not too soon after he came over to me showing me a black sock stuffed with things, his wallet, keys, and cell phone that was making a noise. It seems that while I was searching he was able to find someone else (at 11:30 PM!) with an iPhone, and they tried the “Find My iPhone” app again with success. I wasn’t the one to make this recovery, but I am sure that if I had not convinced Gabrial go to the beach that night his belongings would have gone for good. So glad to have played a part in making a great smile on Wednesday. We had some good fellowship afterwards which was also a blessing. It was great to meet him and his friends and be a help.

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

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

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!

Platinum Wedding Ring Lost at Redondo Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

I received a call from Joel last night about 9:00 PM regarding his wedding ring that he had lost earlier in the day. He and his wife were at the beach, when a sudden cloud burst caused them to hurriedly grab up all of their belongings to get back to their car. They then went to a restaurant about 10 miles away to have dinner, that is when he discovered his ring was missing. they played the scenario over in their minds, and figured the loss occurred on the beach during the calamity of the downpour and rushing to gather everything up. They went back after dinner, and searched the area for about an hour with no luck. The tide had also come up above the area they had been in. which obscured any sign of exactly where they had been sitting. We discussed it all, and I told him I would be there in about 20 minutes.

When I arrived, Joel and his wife Hanriet met me and walked me to the area they believed  the loss to have happened. they told me that they were celebrating their first wedding anniversary this day. I thought wow, and said we have to find the ring. I could see that the water had come over at least half of the beach, so all seating marks had been washed out. They showed me where they believed they had been, so I began right in the middle and worked one way and then the other. I was getting some coins, and standard bottle caps and aluminum pieces, but no ring. I then began to expand my grid. That is when I scooped a nice shiny silver color ring in the scoop. Getting excited I called Hanriet over, and said I think we found it, but when she and then Joel looked at it, they told me it was not his. Upon closer inspection, I could see that it was an inexpensive stainless steel ring. I then continued my grid. I worked out the one side, and then expanded the other side, with nothing but the same types of finds, coins and trash metal. I decided to expand the search more towards the water, one pass, another, one more and then platinum in the scoop, 11:00 PM. It was definitely out of the box. I also want to thank Joel and Hanreit for hanging in there with me for that late night hunt. It was a great pleasure to help celebrate their first wedding anniversary by returning Joel’s lost ring, a ring had he waited until the next day would have most certainly been gone because the County cleans those beaches with sifting machines that are very thorough. What a pair of great smiles!

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

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!
