Cinda called me today in the afternoon. She had been helping with a fundraising fair that was being put on by her children’s school. She had been in charge of the decorations, and like most people who volunteer, working hard to make the day a success. During the time she had been putting up some of the decorations she noticed to her disbelief that the center stone in her engagement ring was gone; a diamond at about 2 1/2 karats. The only thing that was in her favor was the fact that it was in a metal setting, even though it was no more than a stud earring, which are so very hard for a detector to find, because there is such a small amount of metal attached to it. She and her friends scoured the field where she had been working, and the areas she had concentrated on, but to no avail. She wanted to wait until the fair was over to begin the search, and I agreed to meet her then for the search.

When I got to the field, Cinda’s husband Mark met me, and took me up to meet Cinda. She showed me the field, and my heart dropped, it was huge, and the grass was pretty thick. Also I knew that I was going to have to check every signal which would slow me down considerably. I then began an inquiry to narrow down the search area if it was possible. Cinda believed that the best possible spot to begin the search was an area about 10×10 feet based on her friends best recollections regarding when they saw the stone in her ring, so I began there. I was getting signals, but they were all too deep to be her diamond. During my second pass, and after about 12 signals checked, I got another soft signal, and put the pin pointer in to check when it sounded off, and I could see the glimmer of the stone. I reached in, picked it up, and then looked for Cinda. She was working with people during the take down of the fair, so I began walking over. She had her back to me, but some of the ladies there realized I was going to her, and figured I might have found it. I showed them the stone, and then there was instant joyous chaos, everybody shouting, running around that the diamond was found. When Cinda realized what was going on she turned and came right over, and I put the jewel in her hand. She got very emotional, she had had that ring for 26 years, and it had great sentimental value to her. All I can say is, WHAT A BLAST! I was so happy help her out today.

Harry called about 5:30 PM the day before last, he had lost his platinum wedding ring while throwing a ball to his dog. He threw the ball, and his loosely fitting ring flew off of his finger. He and his friend watched as the ring hit the sand, then a wave washed over it, and it was gone in an instant. The tide was on the rise, and where it was lost, with the high surf, it would have been nearly impossible to do the search that night, so we arranged to meet the next afternoon at low tide.

When I got to the beach the wind was blowing with an extreme ferocity, and the wave action was strong. I put on my waders, knowing I would be getting in the water for the search. Harry and his friend James met me and showed me the area of the loss. I had brought 2 detectors down for the search. With the strong surf, there was a possibility the ring might have rolled when it hit, so I was going to search in the water to ensure a thorough search. I did my search of the area with a PI detector with no results. I then went over with a multi frequency VLF detector, again with no results. I wasn’t giving up, and because it had been a full 24 hours since the loss, I put the other 2 detectors away, and brought my best multi frequency VLF detector with a 17 inch coil down thinking the ring might have sunk into the sand further than the other detectors could reach, and performed another grid. I could see that Harry was getting discouraged. He even came to me ready to throw in the towel, but I told him I was going to complete a few more passes in the general area of the direction of the toss. Up, down, and up again, wait what was that tone, a sweet tone in the headphones. I dug once, dug again, and again, deep, very deep, and out of the hole after I kicked the sand aside was the beautiful shimmer of platinum. I looked at Harry, pointed to him, reached down, and lifted his ring out of the sand, to which he and his friend came running over in disbelief; we had been there close to 3 hours. It was a very happy day for Harry, and I was happy to be of help to him!

I was contacted last night by Linda. She had been at the beach with her 2 children enjoying the day. When they were ready to leave she realized her keys were gone, and she had to drive back to Phoenix, AZ. After looking unsuccessfully for her keys, she was able to find and contact me. I could tell she was very distraught at the thought she would be stranded in a strange place with her children, and told her I would be on my way immediately.

When I got to the beach it was already about 8:00 PM, but that does not make a difference, as I can search in the dark as well as the day. Linda led me out to the area where she and her children were playing. I asked a series of questions in order to narrow down the search area, and then began my grid. I was finding a lot of metal, bottlecaps, tin foil, etc. After about 7 passes, a really strong signal reverberated in my headphones. I dug, and could see something different in the scoop. I reached in and there were Linda’s keys. I held them up with my headlight shining on them, and she came running over with an overwhelming show of emotion and gratefulness. She went from despair to joy in an instant. What a blast to see this transformation occur!

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.

Jennifer had been holding her husband’s gold wedding ring while he went swimming in the ocean at Huntington Beach, CA. When her husband, Blair returned he was told that by Jennifer that she had lost the irreplaceable heirloom ring that had been once belonged to his grandfather.

This type of ring loss seems to be a trend lately. The other ways people lose rings at the beach are setting the ring on the towel while putting on sunscreen or putting rings in cupholders of beach chairs. 

Blair went to the nearby concession stands trying to locate a metal detector and Jessica stayed with their kids getting on line where she located me on TheRingFinders website. I was 6 miles away but it took a little extra time to find parking as all the parking lots were full because of several special events. You never know what type obstacles that come up until arriving at the location. This time it only involved walking an extra quarter of a mile.

They were waiting patiently on the beach where the loss occurred, that’s a good thing. Jennifer pointed out where she had been playing with the kids in the sand. She had the ring on her finger and believed that’s where it came off. I started there and it was a quick find. Only two pieces of trash metal then the third signal was the special heirloom ring more than 70 years in the family. 

It was a great day to be able to help Jennifer and Blair find their ring. On that location of Huntington City Beach it would not have been there the next day. They use the best beach cleaning every night. Timing is very important on many beaches in the Los Angeles and Orange County beaches.

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!

I received an email from Gibreel about his cell phone he had lost playing football the day before at the beach. The phone came out of his pocket when he dived for a pass, and was instantly gone. He and his friends searched for over an hour without any success. I wasn’t too hopeful about the recovery because this beach is cleaned often by the county beach cleaning machines, but from everything he explained to me, I thought it was worth a try. We agreed to meet there in the evening.

I arrived before Gibreel, and walked out on the beach. As I walked out I could see the smoothed out sections of sand that showed the machines had been through the area. When he arrived and came out, I showed the sections of sand to him, and explained the possibilities of a recovery. I figured I was there, so I would do the search none the less. As I started my grid Gibreel began looking around as well. He then came back to me to let me know that he recognized a can from the night before. At this point I realized that the machines had not gone through in the morning but the day before, which bolstered my hope of finding the phone. I was finding numerous coins bottlecaps and other pieces of metal, then about 45 minutes into the search, I received a real strong and large signal, and when I dug, his phone popped up. He was so happy to have it back being a college student, and not having the ability to just run out and buy another phone. I was happy to make his day!

Lauren called me about two hours after her husband, Justin lost his gold wedding ring in the sand at Venice Beach, CA. It took a couple hours for Lauren to find me doing a google search for metal detector service.

Both of them met me on the beach about noon. Justin told me that he had put his ring in his jacket pocket while they went for a morning swim. He was sure the ring fell from the pocket as he picked up the jacket. 

This should have been a quick search except they were having a little difficulty locating the spot where they had laid their belongings. This is happens often, so I asked Justin to use my sand scoop to mark the area he believed the loss occurred. I also asked him if he recognized any items or trash. 

It was probably a 40 ft. square that Justin had marked off. I let him suggest the most probable side to start my grid search. After almost finishing that area. I began to search outside the marked location where Justin had noticed a piece of trash. It didn’t take but a few more minutes and I had received a great clear signal that turned out to be Justin’s ring. 

They were overjoyed and very grateful as it was getting a little discouraging after the first half hour. I knew the ring would eventually show up, it’s just a matter of eliminating one area at a time. Most people don’t understand or trust that a metal detector can find a item as small as a ring in a field of sand. It’s a matter of having the best metal detectors , knowing how to operate that equipment, having the experience and patience to search in all types of conditions.

It was a pleasure to meet and help Lauren and Justin. They were very grateful to have their wedding ring recovered..

Rudan has been a beach party at Corona del Mar State Beach, Newport Beach, CA. when he lost his car key in the sand. His friend contacted me asking my for help.

Rudan showed me a 20 ft. square area where he knew the loss occurred. He did tell me that his key was broken and just the small metal piece had fallen in the sand. He said it wasn’t any bigger than a pull tab that he saw in my scoop.

After doing a quick grid, I assumed that it may have fallen through my sand scoop. Starting a second pass over the same area, I slowed my sweeping speed and checking every small signal. Boom! The small key part showed up. 

Big smile from Rudan and relief that he didn’t have to go through the trouble to have his car towed. Generally lost keys in the sand a fairly easy to find with a metal detector. This was not easy. Every search has challenges

Eron contacted me about the keys to her new mailbox that had been lost in her front yard. She and her two year old son went out to get the mail, and on the way back to the house she let her son hold the keys. When they got back into the yard, she had to attend to something, and turned from her son for a minute, and when she turned back to him she noticed the keys were gone. She asked him where they were, and he told her he put them in a hole. She searched the grass for a couple of hours looking for where the keys might have been inserted into, but there was no hole in the area he was standing.

We arranged to meet, and when I got to the house, the grass was nice and groomed, and I could see no holes at all. I began my search, up, down, up, and down again, then I got the signal. I put in my pin pointer, and there in the deep thatch were the keys. The depth of the thatch, Eron’s son perceived as a hole. She was very happy to have the keys back. She did not want her picture taken, so you get mine.:-)
