Yasin emailed me about his lost car key. He lives on a second floor of an apartment building, and when leaving the home he dropped his car key. It hit the deck, bounced, and landed in the garden below. The garden was filled with 3 foot tall shrubs with a lot of dead ground cover under  them, He said that he spent about 3 hours looking for the key, and then decided to look for help. He asked if I could come the next morning, and we arranged a time to meet for the search.

When I got there Yasin met me and took me to the spot. The shrubs were tall, and very close to one another. I did the search slowly and meticulously without finding the key. I then went back and slowed the search down even more, and found the key right under where he thought it had dropped, buried under the dead undergrowth. He was very happy to have it back, and I was happy to help.

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.

Aki called last night very concerned. Her wedding ring had been lost at her daughter’s school, in the sandy play area. I found out after arriving that her very young daughter had taken her ring with her to school to wear, and while she was in the play area, lost it while swinging her arm. I was close, and let Aki know that I would be there soon, and left.

I got to the school, and met Aki and her daughter. She took me over to the area where the ring had been lost. I then questioned the daughter to find out exactly had happened. She rehearsed what she did, and how the ring was lost, so I began my search. I searched all of the area that I was shown, and went over it a second time to make sure I had not missed anything, but found no ring. I then expanded my search further and further out. I went to the left side and then to the right, but no ring. There was a lot of iron in the ground that was making the search difficult. I expanded out further and did an extra one over to the expanded area. It was getting dark, and I had done the area pretty well until in between the iron I heard the good signal. I scooped up the sand and there in the bottom of the scoop was Aki’s ring. It was too dark for Aki to know I had found the ring, but I reached in and walked it over to her, holding it up so she could see it when it was within eyesight. As soon as she saw the ring she brandished a big smile, but then was overcome with emotion, she was so happy. To give so much happiness and relief to someone is such a pleasure!

I woke up the other day to an email from William who explained that his wife’s wedding and engagement rings were lost in the garden of a local hotel. They had just come from a celebration, and his wife had taken off her rings and given them to William to hold, when in a moment of play he decided to toss them over his shoulder, not thinking of the ramifications of the rings going into the bushes and ground cover. They searched, but it was at night and it very hard to see. I answered his email, and he called shortly after. We decided to meet at the hotel when he had a break from his job.

When I got there, about 4:00 PM, William was already there, and he took me over to the area, and went over what had happened. I began a search with the detector, but found that there was too much metal to be able to get a good search in. I then brought out the pin pointer to do a slow grid in the shrubbery, and began from the side of the hand he thrown the rings with. As I was searching William could not believe it, he found the diamond solitaire at the edge of the shrubs on the sidewalk, in full view of anyone who would have walked by since the night before. Fortunately no one saw the ring. I then decided to focus my attention to the area he found the first ring, and worked it well with the pin pointer. After finding some bottle caps, foil, and other metallic objects, I received another signal. I pushed aside the leaves and grass, and there it was, the second ring. Anyway, needless to say, William was very grateful, and relieved to know that he could go home with the rings he had lost the night before. A lot of fun helping people get things right.

While out on the beach doing the night search for the lost wedding band I got a desperate call from Josh. He had thrown his car key and remote off of his apartment balcony into the ivy and bushes, and was unable to find them. I let him know that I would come over as soon as I finished my search for the ring.

I finished my ring search about 10:00 PM, and arrived at Josh’s house about 10:30 PM. He explained what he did and showed me the area. There was not only ivy, but bougainvillea as well, two forms of shrubbery that can hide things well. I put on my headlight, and grabbed my detector and pin pointer and began my search. I found a number of metal items such as cans and bottle caps. I continued my search a little out of the initial area, and found the car key. Josh was surprised and very happy. I continued the search for the remote doing battle with the bougainvillea, but I was losing the battle with blood dripping from my arms from the wicked thorns that were hard to see at night, so I told Josh that I would come the next day when the sun was up to do a more thorough search for the remote. I got there today and asked Josh to recreate the actions he took the previous night. It looked as though the remote was going to be in one of the bushes. I was able to get my detector coil under the bushes, and under one of the bougainvillea got a real good signal. I put the pin pointer under the bush being careful of the thorns, and deep in the bush was the remote. Josh was overjoyed to get his key and remote back, and I was happy to have made his day.

Safety Search for Nails in Torrance, CA Yard

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

I received an email from Sally requesting my services to make sure there were no more nails in her back yard from a recent re-roofing job. She said that the workers had dragged a magnet through, but she was having a birthday party for her young son on Saturday with water fights and bare feet, and she wanted to be certain the nails were gone. I let her know that is something I could help her with, and we arranged to meet later in the early evening.

When I got to her house she showed me the backyard which wasn’t very large, and I expected a quick search. What I found though was that the magnet had removed all of the roofing nails, but there were a multitude of old rusty nails just on or barely under the surface that could have caused some serious damage to her son or his friends. After about an hour I had removed quite a number of rusty nails and other sharp objects, along with some other metal objects. Sally and her husband were very happy to know that the yard did not have any surface dangers to deal with.

Sally sent the following testimonial:

Steve is not just for finding lost engagement rings! My house was recently reroofed and I had the backyard swept over with a magnetic sweeper multiple times in order to catch nails and other roofing debris. My son is having a bday party this Saturday and I just couldn’t rest easy knowing that children would be running around barefoot. Someone recommended Steve and I emailed him this morning. He came out this afternoon and found a handful of nails that looked like tetanus waiting to happen. So thankful he was suggested to me. Seems like a great guy as well. Highly recommend.

Sally

Update: The party went well and kids were still nail-free by the end of the day 😉

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.

I was contacted Saturday evening by Sue who had lost her earring at the park earlier in the day. She told me how her young boy had been overly energetic, and while fussing, hit her ear and caused the earring to dislodge and fall into the wood chips that made up the base of the playground. She said that she had searched as long as she could, but with the yellow gold and the color of the wood chips being so similar, it seemed an impossible task. She also told me how much these fine pieces of jewelry meant to her. She had just gotten her first paycheck from her first job after graduating college 20 years prior, and these earrings were one of the first things she purchased as a reward for her hard work. When Sue contacted me, I was getting dinner for my wife and I, so I let her know that if she gave me the information about the loss and directions to the park, I would meet her there to do a search after dinner. She told me that she was unable to go, but gave me the information anyway. I ate dinner, and left for the search.

When I got to the park it was already dark, so I got my headlight. I went over the pictures she had sent, and began my search. I searched all of the area that I saw in the pictures with no luck. Now an earring can be a very difficult item to search for because of the limited amount of metal, but with my detector I should have heard this one (A rental detector would not have found it). I went over the area again, pulled out the wood chips from under the play equipment, and searched all of that with no luck. I then went around the whole piece of equipment thinking it may have been knocked loose but fallen off somewhere else; no luck. I also searched a grassy area she had mentioned as a possibility, no luck there also. So I called her again, and went over the photographs she had sent, when with her help, I realized, I had misinterpreted the picture, and was conducting my search in the wrong place. It did not take more than 10 to 15 minutes to find both the earring and the back for it. I sent her a picture of her earring, and she called me back very excited.

Sue and I arranged to meet the next day, so I could return her symbol of hard work and precious memories. When she came over to me, and I held out her earring I could see a wave of emotion sweep over her. She was so very happy to have her earring back, and I was so very happy to see her joy restored. What a great end to a day!

Sue sent the following to include in this post:

Hello, Steve – thank you again for being an instrument in finding my earring. Here is the short story which I shared on my Facebook:

An inspirational story to share on a Sunday…

On Saturday afternoon at my friend’s birthday party for her daughter, everyone including my son had a great time. We were at a park in Pasadena. It was perfect weather and my son was a powerhouse – non-stop on the slide, running around with no fear and 200% energy! He was having a wonderful time. But he kept coming back to the big slide which scared me because it was way too high, and he wanted to walk down, instead of sliding down! So when he tried to go the big slide again, I scooped him up and he struggled, hitting my face and neck. He hit my right ear so hard that the earring on my right ear flew out.

We looked for the earring for over an hour. But the play area had these chipped wood pieces as flooring. It was impossible to find. As my friend said, it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack! Someone said, “Get a metal detector.” And I thought, where am I gonna find a metal detector? We left the party and I had a sinking feeling. I didn’t want to leave half of my earring in a place I may never come back to. That earring’s been with me for 20 years! But we had to go home. My son, was getting cranky and I didn’t want to drive on the freeway at night.

On the drive home, I asked my cousin to look up metal detectors for rent online. She found theringfinders.com. I called The Ring Finders (Steve Smith) immediately, he asked for pictures of the lost earring, the exact area where I lost it, and I texted him the photos. He said he would drop by the park after dinner. At 8:50pm, Steve the ringfinder called my cell asking for more specifics. He was at the park, already looking for the earring with his metal detectors, but couldn’t find it. I requested for him to look at one side of the play area near the benches. 15 minutes later, he texts me, “Found it!” And sent me a photo of my earring. He found the pearl earring and the back of the earring! I am so relieved! It felt like a scene out of a movie but this is real life. I bought these earrings with my first paycheck after college. It’s not about the $, but more of the sentiment. I wear them everyday, and these have been with me through my ups and downs.

Today – 3pm on a Sunday – my husband and I met Steve. He immediately gave me my earring and I hugged him so tight. Steve is a genuinely kind person, who was just happy to help. I had tears in my eyes upon seeing him and my earring. I remembered all the memories I have with this earring: coming to America wearing these pearls, building a family, and finding a career. Steve is a God-send, and I will never forget his kindness. It was a leap of faith to make that first call to The Ring Finders. I didn’t hesitate because I knew they can help me. Steve said their joy is in giving back what they found. And I’m glad their group exists to bring back smiles without expecting a whole lot in return. Thank you, Steve and TheRingFinders. Thank you so much. I call this #MyPersonalMiracle.

-Sue

At about 8:00 PM last night I received a call from Sri who had lost his ring while throwing a ball to his daughter earlier in the evening. This ring had been custom made for him in India. He had been back and forth to the park 3 times looking for it since 5:30 PM without any luck. Sri’s wife found my information on The Ring Finders web site, and he called. I told him the because it happened at a public park, that I would come immediately to do the search, so as to not allow for anything to cause the search to become more difficult or impossible, such as someone finding the next morning while on a walk, or the city mowing the grass.

When I got there Sri and his friend met me and took me to the spot where he was standing when he threw the ball. We discussed the trajectory and force with which the ball was thrown, and then I began my search where I thought was the most likely spot to start. As I was making my first pass with my detector and high intensity head lamp, Sri’s friend was walking with me to my left. I would look left and right, and the light would cover the ground. I was about half way through the first pass, when the light from my head lamp caused a glint that caught Sri’s friend’s attention, and when he reached down, he came up with the missing ring. Needless to say, there was a lot of celebrating last night. Sometimes it takes an outside observer to think outside of the box, and maybe look where you don’t think the lost item might be, and I think that is what happened last night. I wasn’t emotionally involved, which allowed me to move the search area to one that may not have been covered, and enabled us as a team to make the recovery. A great night indeed!
