Anne was having a very rough week and then she found theringfinders.com! With renewed hope she reached out to me and her rather sad story has a very happy ending. Here is the short version in Anne’s own words.

“I had lost my father’s ring a week ago while playing frisbee in my back yard with my dog on Monday, November 9th! I came home from work and it was drizzling a little and I wanted to give my girl some exercise and burn off some of her energy before the rain really set in. I was playing with her and the ring flew off. I think the rain and cooler weather loosened it on my finger and my grass is a nasty combination of St. Augustine, Dollar weed, Bahia and who knows what else. It feels like a spongy carpet.

It was my dad’s ring (he died last November 1st followed 8 months later by my mom on August 10th) and it isn’t fancy or worth a bunch of money but it is gold, has three diamonds (my dad use to refer to it as his “3 Amigos ring”) and means the world to me!

I spent, I can’t tell you how many hours (no joke, at least 30 hours in the last 7 days) on my hands and knees, in the dark with a flashlight, in the rain, with sweat running down my face, tears steaming up my glasses and the heat! I even bought a Bounty Hunter 2200 metal detector…and nothing. I had a friend help as well. I think I needed professional help (maybe in more ways than one…lol!)

I googled “HELP ME FIND MY LOST RING” and found Mike McInroe. I sent him an email which he responded to quickly. He was at my home within an hour and a half. Where it took me over 30 hours in a week, he found my ring within a half hour! I was sooooooo appreciative! I had been extremely upset by the loss. Thank you Mike! Sincerely, Anne-Marie”

Have you, or someone you know, lost something recently and need help to find it? Or maybe you have lost something years ago and have a good idea of the area where it was lost and you would like to have someone look for it.

Call, text or email me ASAP!

Lost cell phone along highway, Ormond Beach, Florida….Found and Returned!

In November of 2017, Jerry was visiting his brother and wife in the Ormond Beach, Florida area and was in a bit of a hurry as he packed up his car to head north for the long drive home. And in his hurry he forgot that he had set his phone on the top of the car! Here is Jerry’s account. “My phone survived a brief thrill ride on top of my car before sliding off onto the shoulder of the road, where it survived a couple of cold and lonely nights before you, Mike, came to the rescue. I tried to hire someone from Craigslist for an “Odd Job” but nobody was interested. The day before I contacted Mike, I asked a local police officer to go out where the signal was still pinging and have a look around. It’s a work phone and they probably wouldn’t have charged me for it but I had some video on there of my daughters last Tae Kwon Do belt test that I didn’t want to lose. Glad I thought of metal detectors and glad I discovered you (and theringfinders.com)! Thanks again! Jerry O.”
So glad to be able to help you Jerry and thanks for entrusting me with the job of finding your lost cell phone!

Lost wedding ring, Longwood, Florida…..Found and Returned!

Sunday evening Morgan was on her back porch and threw a ball out the door and into the yard for her dog to fetch. But not all dogs have learned the fine art of fetch and retrieve. As is the case with Morgan’s dog! So Morgan and her young son ran out to help demonstrate the skill of fetching a ball when thrown. They played with the dog for awhile in the yard and then retreated inside to the cool air conditioning. An hour or so passed before Morgan noticed that her diamond engagement ring and her wedding ring were not on her finger, where she has worn them for the last 7 years! A bit of panic set in and she began thinking of where they could be and remembered throwing the ball for her dog and being as she throws with her left hand, it made sense that her rings could very easily have slipped off at that time. And sure enough there in the yard, close to where the ball had landed, she found her diamond engagement ring in the grass. So she continued looking for her wedding ring but could not seem to find it. As she contemplated what to do next, Morgan thought about buying or renting a metal detector and decided to purchase a cheap detector at the local sporting goods store. On her way to the store she remembered seeing theringfinders.com web site and thought of giving me a call to see if I could help her. I assured Morgan that there was a very good chance of finding her lost wedding ring and we made arrangements to meet the next day. It was interesting that Morgan thought she had not thrown the ball very hard, maybe 10 to 15 feet, as the ball only landed a short distance from the back door and her diamond engagement ring was found very close. So I searched high and low, in the bushes, under the bushes and rechecked all signals carefully to be sure a large deep signal was not masking her ring…but I could not find it! An hour passed and Morgan’s husband came out to see how I was progressing and he offered to trim two sago palms that were at least 30 feet from the back door. It was an excellent idea, because there at the base of the first prickly sago plant, down in the leaves was Morgan’s beautiful lost wedding ring! It was a tear jerking moment for all of us when we showed Morgan her ring and even her little son kept saying, “Mommy is crying!” And we all assured him those were tears of JOY! Lost your ring?
